The Minikin is back and better than ever! The Minikin 2 features a boosted maximum power output of 180 watts and now features a newly designed touch screen by utilizing the all new GX-180-HT chip. The Minikin II features newly updated firmware which displays all pertinent vaping data on a single, easy to read screen. The following information is found on the OLED display: Individual charge of each battery inside the mod, the resistance of any atomizer used on the device, the volts being drawn from your batteries to achieve your desired wattage, a puff counter to monitor usage, the duration of each fire, and which firing mode you are currently in. The Minikin II features a redesigned body that was crafted specifically to be comfortable to hold in your hands. A freshly designed magnetic closure door has been added for a mode secure seal and the USB port has been moved to the front of the device. 15 ventilation holes have been incorporated to the base of the device to allow for maximized heat dissipation. Using the Minikin II To use the device you will first need to unlock the screen. The screen is unlocked by sliding your finger down the entire scree. Once the screen is unlocked you can touch the wattage to adjust the wattage or you can touch the firing mode to enter the menu. Checking Resistance Once in the main menu you can touch the "RES" icon to enter the resistance menu. In this menu you will see "SET RES" on the top and a "CHECK" button on the bottom. Pressing the "CHECK" button causes the device to read a resistance and "YES" and "NO" buttons will appear on the screen. By touching "YES" you will set a resistance and be returned to the main menu. Touching "NO" will create "+" and "-" buttons to appear which allows you to manually adjust a read resistance.NOTE: Manually changing resistance will only set if you are using a temperature control wire. Selecting a firing mode When the main menu, the second option found is called "MODE". By touching "MODE" you will enter a mode selection menu which allows you to choose your firing mode. You will see "PWR" which is your standard variable wattage mode and within that mode you will see two different options: "W" which is wattage mode, and a newly developed mode called "CURVE". "CURVE" is a new firing mode that manually imitates the abilities of temperature by allowing the user to set 5 different wattage over time presets. For example you can set the device to fire at 100 watts for 1.5 seconds, then 90 watts for 1 second and then 110 watts for 1.2 seconds. Doing this will through whatever you have set in a cycle for up to 10 seconds (the device has a 10 second cut off time) and once the firing stops, it will reset and start from the beginning. Wattage in the Curve mode can be adjusted in 0.1 watt increments and seconds can be adjusted in .1 second increments. The other options available in the mode selection mode are "COIL" which is used to select which type of wire you are firing with (supports Ni200, SS316, SS317, and Ti) and then "TCR" and "TFR" modes.
