The Eleaf BASAL mod is made to be an ultra-thin and portable vaporizer. The mod looks stylish and very shiny as it is made with an all metallic finish and is available in 3 different color options. The Eleaf BASAL is available in brushed silver, gold and rose gold.

On the side of the mod, you will see the fire button, the up and down button and the LED screen display. On the top sits the 510 spring loaded connection with stainless steel threads and on the bottom is a micro USB port for charging. The BASAL mod is capable of outputting 30 watts and has a 1500 mah battery capacity.

The battery is not removable and can be charged via the micro USB port. The BASAL mod has a 2A quick charging feature to charge the device more quickly and efficiently and just like any other Eleaf products, the BASAL mod has a dual circuit protection which can protect the mod from over-charging, over-current and over-discharging.

The tank included in the kit is the GS BASAL atomizer and it is primarily made of stainless steel. It features an adjustable airflow control and has an easy bottom refill design. It uses the GS Air coils which are optimized for flavor and are also included in the kit.

The Eleaf BASAL kit includes 2 GS Air coil heads. Pre-installed is a 0.75 ohm coil head that is rated to use between 8 watts to 25 watts and an additional 1.5 ohms coil head that is rated to use between 8 watts to 20 watts.

The BASAL mod has a max output of 30 watts which may be a little too low for the advanced vapers but it is actually more than enough for what the BASAL mod is intended to be used. Eleaf made the BASAL mod as a mouth to lung style vaporizer.

This mod is created to be used by cigarette smokers who want to quit and switch to vaping. Since almost all cigarette smokers are still used to the tight and restrictive drag, the mouth to lung style which the BASAL mod and the GS BASAL tank can provide will make it easier for them to transition into the world of vaping.

The GS BASAL tank features an adjustable airflow to further personalize your vaping style. When you turn the airflow control ring, you will see 4 small holes and a wide slot which you can set and adjust to make the drag more tight and restrictive or a slightly airy one.

The Eleaf BASAL kit is catered to those who want a mouth to lung vaping style. If you want those dense and massive clouds, then this kit is not for you. The BASAL mod has a max output of 30 watts so you won’t be able to use those super low ohm coil heads and you will be mostly limited to the mouth to lung style coil heads.

The BASAL mod is only 15 mm in thickness so you will most likely be stuck with the GS BASAL tank as the common atomizers on the market right now are 22 mm and above. Unless you don’t mind a large overhang when using a larger atomizer then it is fine I guess.



The Eleaf BASAL mod with the GS BASAL tank is only 128.5 mm in height, 36.6 mm in width and 15 mm in thickness. It is a super slim and very portable vaporizer. You won’t have any problems putting this mod in your pocket or storing in your bag. You can even put it in your shirt’s front pocket and people won’t notice that you have a vape mod.

The BASAL kit is a mouth to lung style vape mod and won’t produce massive clouds so you can easily bring it to gatherings or parties and vape stealthily. Even though the 1500 mah battery is not removable, as long as you have access to a USB port, you will be able to charge the BASAL mod anywhere.

The Eleaf BASAL kit is a perfect starter kit for those who want to make the switch to vaping. The mouth to lung vaping style that the BASAL can offer will greatly help newbies transition into the world of vaping. This kit though is not for those who are looking for those dense and massive clouds as it only has a max output of 30 watts and you won’t be able to use those super low sub ohm coil heads.

Even though the BASAL is very limited on its vaping style, the GS Air coils included in the kit are optimized to enhance the flavor of every e-liquid you put in the tank so it is still a win in my book.

If you are looking for something a good starter mod style vape check out the SMOK G150 and if you are just looking for the best check out the SMOK Procolor.
