UK-based Jacvapour is probably one of the most well known names in vaping in our part of the world. While there are good brands in a number of different places, having a great one in your neighborhood sure does make things easier. It also, almost by default, became the go-to brand for those making the switch off of fags and to vapour. With the Jacvapour Series B DNA75 box mod, the veteran company brings more power and flexibility to the table compared to their e-cigarette line. As with any of their products, we were excited to have a go at it.
The term box mod doesn’t always fit, as many are trying to be less boxy and more curved for aesthetic purposes. Others just eschew that attempt and stick with the box. Here Jacvapour has gone somewhat in the middle, with a design that is box-based but has nice curves to it too – as well as a tall sort of approach, more like an e-cig. To some, it looks plain, but to others it is a minimalist beauty. It’s small, black, and very smooth. On the thinner sides of it, one the battery compartment cover and the other has everything else. That would be, the fire button, the screen, the +/- buttons, and a USB port. That’s it – nothing else to distract you.
In terms of feel, we get a similar impression. It feels great in your hands and definitely along the lines of the simple is great approach. The quality is what we would expect from Jacvapour, which is to say it is very good. The only complaint we would have initially is that the fire button is a little on the light side. Picking it up, you can rather easily set it off. This is something we’ll address further below in our ease of use section, but it stems from a build issue so it’s fair to mention it here first.
The other buttons seemed to be okay though, so no worries there. The battery compartment is held in place by very strong magnets and they work just fine too. Overall another fine effort by the veteran brand on the design and build side of things.
Keep in mind this is a smaller box mod that maxes out at 75 watts. That being said, we really liked the performance we got out if it. First of all, it ramps up very quickly. Not the absolute fastest on the market, but certainly above average and meets our needs and then some. The range of power itself was good, meaning that we were able to get to right around the 75 maximum mark without any trouble. This often isn’t the case, but Jacvapour does a great job keeping its word with what its devices can actually do.
In terms of vapour, we were pleasantly surprised as not all all e-cigarette makers can produce a vape mod that does well in this department. But here’s Jacvapour, upping its game, and creating one. By no means is this a cloud chaser, especially not at 75 watts, but it gave us more than we needed and that’s likely the case for most vapers. Flavours were also wonderful, and we would say they even outdid the vapour. They were clear and crisp, and simply very tasty. Kudos to the veteran brand in terms of the performance here.
Here’s where you’ll find something very different compared to other box mod reviews. Typically we go through the different modes a vape mod can handle. That would start with variable voltage, often it’ll have temperature control, but the more advanced models will also have different types of advanced controls too. Well, if you like advanced controls, you may have met your match with the Jacvapour Series B DNA75.
That’s because the second part of that name, the DNA75, actually stands for specific chipset. We’re talking about DNA boards, and in this case it’s the DNA75. What this means is that you can configure it to an absurd degree, almost like programming a computer. To do so, you’ll need to connect the vape mod to a PC and run the Escribe software that controls the board’s settings. There is way more than we can put into this one review, but suffice to say that you’ll be getting one of these box mods if you have the knowhow about advanced vaping settings – or the the desire and patience to learn.

Ease of Use:
Once you’ve properly programmed the DNA board, the menu itself is rather easy to use. You can access it via the OLED display that is rather sharp. It’s a little on the small side, but so is the entire device. Going through it is rather easy but, again, you’ll have spent more of your time in front of a computer monitor setting up the vape mod to go.
Functionally this is an easy product to use as well. The 510 connector is nice and smooth and you can screw on a number of tanks with ease. Beware that the area for the tank is also small, so you should expect some overhang for any tank that is over 22m wide. You only need a single 18650 battery to power this box mod, and we found that the battery life held up pretty well. All in all, Jacvapour keeps you vaping without any bother.
The price directly from Jacvapour is the best you’ll get, and it’s £54.99. That might be on the high side for a box mod with this wattage level, but this is a great brand and and advanced product so the value is there anyway.
The Jacvapour Series B DNA75 is one of the most intruiging products that we’ve come across. It’s a very small device, with very advanced features. Even at only 75 watts, it creates very nice vapour and flavour production, and seemingly goes beyond what other similar devices can do.
Yet, are there really other devices like this? With the Escribe software giving you ultimate customization freedom, you have a box mod that can change with you and your habits. The downside to that is that you’ll need to know what you’re doing or invest your time. Other more minor downsides are the trigger-happy fire button and the smaller tank area. Still, if you’re looking to immerse yourself in vaping and are looking for a high quality product, look no further than this one. Jacvapour comes through once again with a great vape, and we’re left to wait for the next in its long line of successes.
