Simeiyue SMY 260 Watt Review
As the arms race for most impressive specs in the Wild West that is the developing vape industry rages on, a steady stream of increasingly powerful devices have made their way to market.
The latest salvo comes in the form of the Simeiyue SMY 260, which outdoes the manufacturer’s mighty SMY God by a full 80 watts of power.
At some point in late 2017, you’re going to be able to enjoy your vape while warming up a Hot Pocket with it.
In all seriousness, the SMY 260 mod is the highest wattage mod we’ve tested so far, and it should go without saying that this device is only for the most experienced vape enthusiasts.
Nevertheless, it’s an undeniable fact that impressive specs turn heads, and today’s Simeiyue SMY 260 review aims to discover what the device offers other than a distinct advantage in a number-wagging contest.

What’s New- Simeiyue SMY 260
As of the typing of this sentence, the SMY 260 Mod is the single most powerful regulated box mod ever mass-produced, offering 260 watts of vaping power at full operational capacity.
The SMY 260w is styled as more than a brute too, featuring an elegantly appointed exterior and a magnetic back cover for added convenience.
Another upgrade from previous Simeiyue releases is the user-defined shutoff system that turns the unit off after a predetermined length of time.Simeiyue SMY 260 | Best Deal | Only $135.99
You’ve seen the number 260 in this article enough to know this mod’s maximum power level, but the adjustable range starts at a humble 5w, and wattage is adjusted with the two buttons on the front on the device.
As you might expect, generating 260 watts in the palm of your hand takes more juice than your average vape (or average game console), and the power plant of the SMY 260 watt consists of three 18650-type batteries rated for at least 30 amps, all working in perfect harmony.
The SMY 260w does support internal charging for the batteries via USB cable, but if you’re planning on doing that you may want to grab a Snickers, because you’ll be there for a while.
Once the battery triumvirate has fully charged, however, the SMY 260 Watt Mod offers well over a full day of vaping even at higher power levels.
Of course, if you don’t have all day to sit around and wait for your batteries to charge, we suggest investing in an external charger as well.
The Trustfire TR-001 is an excellent value option.
It’s compatible with a range of Lithium Ion rechargeable batteries and equipped with spring loaded charge bays for a secure fit as well as LED indicator lights that turn green when batteries are fully charged.
The SMY 260 Watt Mod is a sub-ohmer’s dream as well as an all-around ripper overall, generating good vapor volume well under 100 watts and something close to actual clouds at higher power levels.
Of course, you’ll definitely want to be careful about maxing the SMY 260w out, and to be honest, flavor suffers with most blends at levels over 150w, but for pumping out the vapor, you can’t really beat something that could power a camera drone.SMY 260 | Top Performer of 2015 | Only $135.99
The slick exterior of the SMY 260 Watt may be its other strongest selling point, featuring a polished combination of carbon fiber, glass, and matte aluminum alloy.
We always enjoy magnetic doors on our battery covers, and the reasonably strong magnets in the door of the SMY 260w represent another mark in its favor.
Buttons are rooted solidly into the device, and it presents an overall feel of quality and substance if it may be a bit bulky for some.
SMY 260 Watt Mod Threading
The SMY 260w is compatible with all clearomizers, tanks and RDAs with a 22mm or smaller diameter with its standard eGo/510 threading.
Horizon Arctic Tank
The Arctic Tank from Horizon is perfect for sub-ohming. Featuring a turbine dual coil system that wicks maximum liquid through a pair of specially designed wick ports to create huge flavor while eliminating dry hits.
These coils are meant to stand up to weeks of vaping even at triple digit wattage levels and come with coil heads in 0.2 and 0.5 ohms resistance to enable a higher level of customization during the vaping experience.
We took a full look at the Horizon Arctic Tank here on BC, so have a look if you’re in the market for a high caliber tank.
It seems we can barely go an article without mentioning the Subtank line. Trust us, it’s not because we’re sponsored by Kanger or anything—at least, we haven’t started getting the endorsement checks.
It’s because by all accounts (including our own within the Kanger Subtank review here on BC) it’s simply a gosh-dang fine piece of vaping equipment.
Organic cotton coils for the purest e juice flavor possible, adjustable airflow and an optional RDA mode make this one of the best tanks on the market, so it’s a safe recommendation with pretty much any device.
This One Goes to 11
We’ve said over and over again here that the SMY 260 Watt Mod is not for beginners or even the intermediate.
We’re going to say it again here because the SMY 260 is the rare piece of vaping equipment that can cancel your next Christmas if you don’t know what you’re doing.
First of all, don’t expect to reach 260w with that plastic whatchamacallit with the nylon wicks you bought 3 for $10 down at the Quick-E-Mart.
You’ll need a coil build with a resistance of about 0.2ohm to fire off the SMY at levels over 220, and you’ll also need the right type of freshly charged batteries to reach full power as well.
Don’t fry your tank, your mod or yourself trying to use incompatible equipment, always check your amps and other settings before using a device like the SMY 260w.
It’s just good business to make sure that a device is as safe as possible.
After all, living people buy more stuff, but when you’re talking about this much juice in such a small space, a couple of vent holes isn’t going to cut it.
That’s why the SMY 260 Watt Mod has an advanced internal processing system that protects against battery reversal, short-circuit, high temperature and other operational instability which can become highly problematic if left unchecked at such a high power level.
