Wismec Predator 228 Preparation
In this part of the guide we’ll break down the basic operation, settings, and running of the Predator 228 mod. We will cover how to get it up and running, installing the batteries, and installing the tank — if you bought the complete kit. We will look at verifying authenticity and making sure everything is set for first use. If you have already set the device up and are comfortable running it — maybe you are just looking for specific settings — feel free to skip this page and move on to the in-depth running options on the next page.
Authenticity Check: As soon as you purchase the Predator you can check to make sure your device is authentic. On the back of every single box from Wismec there is a small white panel containing a QR code and scratch off check box. You can either scan the QR to take you to Wismec’s site or verify it here. Scratch off the panel and insert the code, after a few seconds your device will be verified. If you have any other questions about the authenticity of the device, feel free to contact a Wismec consultant via email or phone.
Wismec Warranty Policy: Wismec products are covered under manufacturer’s warranty for 90 days from the date of purchase, which can be found here. Everything is self-explanatory on the site, as with most companies they cover manufacturer’s defects and problems caused with Wismec products. They won’t replace your device if you bounce it off a rock face and into a pond, but will generally take care of you for other issues. Keep your receipt in your box to show date of purchase and they will see if its a problem they can fix.
- NOTE: If you have damage caused by using another manufacturers tank — especially one with a longer 510 connector than the device can handle — it won’t be covered.
Preparation Before Use: Make sure the battery that you’re using is according with the Battery Warning Card included in the packaging of your device. Before you begin vaping, you need to also make sure the tank is filled with enough e-liquid, along with ensuring that you’ve primed your coils correctly so that you don’t kill your coils before you use them.
Installing The Batteries: Installing two 18650 batteries that you’ve purchased separately from the kit is required to power the device. Sliding the small tab on the battery door will open the compartment so you can insert the power cells. Make sure that the battery polarity lines up with the markings inside the lid. Once installed, close the lid and the lock will click back into place.
Attaching The Elabo (or other tanks): Make sure the tank is full, the coil is installed correctly, and primed before attaching it to the powered device for the first time. Insert the 510 connector into the Predator and screw it down until it feels snug. Don’t over-tighten the tank as you may damage the connector on the box — this is advice we give on any box mod.
