iStick Pico review

Most of us have used and iStick at some point in our lives as an external storage device on a PC, MAC, iPad, iPhone or iPod using a standard USB interface. However, now there is a much convenient and effective device that has a replaceable battery that offers more wattage and is much smaller. Eleaf is now offering you the new Pico box mod.

This device only requires a single 18650 battery that can be charged via a micro USB cable that offers up to 75 watts of power. it has a temperature control functionality that is supported by commonly used wire types. It device is both comfortable and discrete therefore provides a feeling of ease and relaxation to the user.

iStick Pico styling and build quality

iStick Pico styling and build quality
The most fascinating and great thing about this device is its small and light size. It would be ideal for people who are tired of bulky mods or of people who simply need something discrete to carry around with them.

You can easily fit this device in the pocket of your jeans and it will feel as light as a feather. The form factor is superb and it is incredibly comfortable to use due to its lovely rounded edges. The device feels very well put together and it is quite durable.

The battery section is unique and splendid.

The battery section is unique and splendid.

To get access to it, you need to unscrew the cap on the top of the mod then put in a battery with the positive side down then screw the cap back on. At he base of the device a vent is provided that has eight holes allowing easy flow of gases in and out.

Its screen is both bright and clear that has all the information that is expected that is the Resistance, Voltage and Wattage or Temperature. In addition, battery life and wire type are also displayed. Located on the front of the device is the main fire button which is very responsive and has a nice soft feel to it. On the front bottom of the device is the Micro USB port.

Most of people charge the battery internally but it is advisable by Eleaf to charge the battery externally due to the fact that it will be faster but if you don’t own an external charger you can still charge it via the USB. You can also receive firmware updates from Eleaf via the Micro USB port.

On the base of the device there is the plus and minus adjustment buttons. they seem to appear small in size but they are nicely recessed so the mod remains upright when put down.

The Pico allows you to fire your atomizers as high as 75 watts. It offers Variable Wattage mode and Temperature Control mode. All major wire types are supported in Temperature Control therefore Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel can be used.

In addition the Pico also has a TCR (Temperature Coefficient of Resistance) mode that allows you to fine tune your settings. The chip in the Pico is the same Joyetech one used in the Wismec RX200 and Vape Forward Vapor Flask.

The MELO III tank only comes with the complete kit and is a really nice atomizer however, it only holds 2 ml of juice. Nevertheless, it is fully compliant with the regulations. This problem is thankfully offset somewhat by the fact that the included coils don’t need a huge amount of Wattage so the juice won’t drain as quickly as most and it also has top filling. The MELO III can be fully disassembled for cleaning.

The O-rings are very thick so you shouldn’t experience any leaking. A note to keep in mind is that when unscrewing the top cap it is does require a little force to unscrew since the O-ring makes for a very tight fit. If the O-rings are disassembled and lubricated properly, it should solve this minor issue. The airflow controller is unusual since the slot itself is hidden but you can easily tell if it is fully opened or closed. It is a little trickier to adjust it when it is fitted to the Pico since the battery compartment cap can get in the way but you can still manage it.

Ease of use

Ease of use istick

This Pico device is so easy to use therefore most people will find it easy to use. Any complications are well explained and solved in the manuals that include the following;
* All iStick five clicks of the main fire button switches the device on/off.
* Three clicks of the main fire button brings up the menu. You can cycle the different modes with the plus/minus buttons. Confirm your selection with the fire button.
* Stealth Mode can be activated by holding down the fire button and the minus button for a couple of seconds. Hold down both buttons again to come out of Stealth Mod.
* The device can be locked and unlocked by holding down the fire button and the plus
button for a couple of seconds.


iStick Pico Performance

Whether the Pico device is used during a short or long time, its performance is effective and reliable at all times and in whatever mode. When you get to test this device in Variable Wattage mode using the MELO III tank and also with GP Heron 1.5, you will experience incredible vape from the both of them.

To test out the Temperature Control functionality, you will firstly use Freemax Scylla which looks absolutely funny when fitted to the Pico due to the size of the tank. The Scylla currently has a Ni200 coil fitted and you can set the temperature to 245C which results in a great vape with no heat spikes or resistance fluctuation occurring. You then test out the Stainless Steel functionality using the Innokin iSub V and once more you will get a consistently good vape with no apparent problems.

One thing to mention about the MELO III tank is that it is a really enjoyable vape and the coils do give you good flavor. Using the pre-fitted 0.3 ohms coil, you only need to vape at 32 W which means the battery won’t drain ridiculously fast. With the airflow fully opened up, the MELO III offers a slightly less direct lung inhale. Therefore this does not really appeal to the people who enjoy exhaling huge amounts to form clouds but it will be more than satisfactory for most people. By closing off the airflow, the tank mouth can be sucked to offer more inhale but it may still be a little loose.

The battery consumption is quite minimal therefore this means that it is not quickly drained as long as you vape modestly. In this way, you will not run the battery down quickly. If you happen to vape heavily and lets say using 32 W on this device, you will at least get 3-4 hours of vape time before you get to replace the battery. This is an amazing feature of this and even when chaining away on this device at 32W I got at least 3-4 hours of vape on this iStick Pico. Given its great small size, it really isn’t an issue to carry an additional battery or two with you in case the battery in use runs out.
If you have never used an iStick before, then be assured this device does exactly what you want and is simple to understand so it will make an ideal source of excitement and entertainment for someone who is new to vaping. It is easy to use and very affordable. Do not worry at all about the health effects that may be caused as it is user friendly and harmless to the body. It does not lead to lifestyle diseases or health conditions that are fatal to humans. It has been tested and verified to be very safe for use.

The battery goes a long way as long as it is not over used which means that it can take 3-4 hours however, an extra battery is always good to have around just in case the one currently in use runs out.
It can be carried around to whichever locked at the pocket of your jeans or sweater.The holes at the bottom provide better heat removal and its adjustment buttons are at the bottom as well. For high adaptability and a strong material, it has a stainless 510 spring connector.You can easily update its firmware by using a USB cable to connect the device to a computer in its USB port.

In case the device keeps showing that you need to change the battery or that the device is running on low battery, it is advisable to change to another set of batteries which are high-rated. USB port. When the LED starts flashing when in use, this means that you have to change your batteries. However, if the device cannot turn of the charging, put in new batteries and then. if the device supports upgrades, then follow the steps below; 1. Take out the batteries2. Plug in a USB cable to a computer for connection3. Open the software on the computer to upgrade

If you like the vape at the maximum output of this device then expect battery life to be reduced however have multiple batteries and re charging it regularly is advisable. This is not convenient device for the people who love the high Wattage but if maintained at a low Wattage, it is enjoyable. Temperature Control Mode also drains the battery faster.


iStick Pico Conclusion
I have to admit I really couldn’t stop using this device because I loved it! Funny enough, despite the many devices I own, I found myself reaching for this one the most often. I think the reason is due to a number of factors such as the size, weight, ease of use and the fact that it consistently performs well. I was also just as impressed with the included MELO III tank which gave me an excellent vape no matter what juice I used in it. In my opinion, if you love iSticks, then without a doubt you are going to want one of these iStick Picos.
This is an exceptional device from Eleaf that is really going to appeal to a lot of people. It does not require much reading only the manual and lengthy steps to follow. The guidelines are easy to follow and therefore anybody can use it. It comes with a warranty therefore this means that in case of any malfunction or break-down, it is easily repaired or replaced with a new one when it is returned to the seller or the company where it was purchased. Now I am sure that most of you are going to purchase an iStick Pico of your own and start experiencing all the fun and excitement that all the other iStick Pico users are.

Do not get left out in this new technological device and no not get frightened of the effects that come with it as it has been mentioned earlier that it does not pose any health effect to a user in the short or long term. It has been tested and proven to be consumer friendly and very fun to use. However, too much of it should not be used as it will start to create boredom and the fun in it will be lost. It is good to remember that its main use is to create fun and excitement. Grab yourself an iStick Pico and you shall not have any regrets of purchasing it. Have the adventure and fun that comes after having to yourself one of these devices.
