Sigelei’s updated Fuchai 213 is a brand new take on a device that has been a fan favorite for the better part of a year.  While some reviewers didn’t think very highly of this or the other 213 device recently released by Sigelei, it appears as though the Fuchai 213 will be just as popular as its predecessor.  The public loved the original Fuchai because it was dirt cheap and built like a tank, and even though it didn’t live up to the advertised specifications, most folks didn’t complain because they never pushed it that hard to begin with.

Over the course of the next few minutes we will take an in-depth look at the operation of the Fuchai 213, so if you bought one today you could pick it up and use it without any problems.  Unlike its predecessor though, the menu functions in this device are a little more complex – but then again Sigelei added a bunch of new features.

UPDATE: Sigelei has released the Sigelei Fuchai 213 Plus Mod, which is essentially an updated version of the original 213. CLICK HERE to get the new Sigelei Fuchai 213 Plus.


Sigelei Fuchai 213: The Device

Sigelei Fuchai 213 vw-tc vape mod black solo Guide to VapingThe Fuchai 213 measures in at 88mm by 44mm by 29mm, and is completely different in shape to its predecessor.  It follows very closely to the form of the Sigelei 213, the Pioneer4You IPV400 and IPV6X, opting for the adjustment buttons and screen on the front face with the firing button on the side.  This form has almost become a standard template for dual 18650 systems as it is ergonomically designed for comfort of grip while preventing accidental changes of the settings.  The front facing screen makes it easier to read, especially if you choose to lay it down while making changes.

While the 213 in the name was supposed to represent the maximum wattage of the device, as with its predecessor it falls short, but the fan base doesn’t seem to care about the missing 40 watts at the top end of the power-scale.  What has been added to the Fuchai brand however, is the ability to fire temperature control coils made from Nickel wire, Titanium wire, and Stainless Steel, and by giving the user the ability to control the Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR) and Temperature Factor of Resistivity (TFR) settings, which opens it up to all specific wire formulations.  Another addition is the ability to charge the dual 18650 batteries in the device, although as with any other device, we can not recommend using this feature.


  1. Hello, I’m having an issue that I cannot find in other threads anywhere. My screen stays on all of the time. I’ve tried locking and unlocking, as well as removing and changing the batteries. It functions normally in every other aspect. Please help.

  2. So I’m having a problem. I’ve had mine for like 3 weeks and never had any problems. I charger my batteries last night, put them in, didn’t touch it. I woke up went to fire it and it says HHHHHHHHHall across the screen. But only when I try to fire it. How do I fire it? Or whats wrong?

  3. thank you for this review
    I’m using twisted wire, .35ohms that appeared on the screen and an LG choco batt. may I know if it’s safe? also an el diablo atutomizer.
    May you suggest a great build with wthe fuchai? and how much can I use in the wattage with regards of the said items.
    much appreciated thank you!

    • Well, you’re using a regulated mod, so there are built-in safety features that’s an added layer of protection for both you and the Sigelei Fuchai 213. In addition, the LG HG2 batteries are outstanding battery and tests show they perform very well (I personally use them). I prefer Alien Clapton builds in all my RDA/RTA/RDTA’s.

    • Depends on what you’re after in your vaping experience. I am using a Smok Cloud Beast, because I am a cloud chaser who likes massive vapor production and intense flavor. With the 8-coil V8-T8 “hyper engine” installed, I can run the Fuchai 213 at 180w and fill my living room with a haze with just a few hits… with the downside being the amount of juice consumed! That’s a couble-edged sword, though, because you’ll probably take fewer hits (and will be fully satisfied with a 3mg nicotine strength, unless you’re a hardcore nic junkie).

  4. I’ve just bought mine off of someone, it was working fine but when I took out the 2 batteries to put 2 more fully charged ones in, it won’t turn on now. The only way I can get the screen to come on is by plugging the mod in and it reads 0% on the battery level and remains there, almost like it isn’t recognizing the batteries. I’ve tried multiple batteries and cleaned everything.

        • hi im’m using th tfv4 smok tank with my fuchai 213 watt, the coils are patented triple head coils with high quality kanthal wire. i only use these coils in wattage mode around 85 watts, but i’m having a problem with the tank overheating. i only have a few vapes before it gets to hot and not a lot of vapor production. i also have a smok g priv, i tried the tfv4 tank on it set to stainless max flavor around 95 watts and i was blowing massive clouds? just wondering if the tfvf is really compatible with the fuchai 213 or not, maybe you could suggest agood tank for the fuchai for me prefferably with pre built coils,i don’t mind rba’s but don’t reaally go their… please help

          • What resistance is the coil that you’re using? You shouldn’t be running Kanthal coils in stainless steel mode. I believe the coil you’re using is the 0.2 ohm rated for 40 to 140 watts, so if it’s getting too hot very quickly then you’re either chain vaping and causing it or your liquid isn’t wicking good enough to saturated the cotton and make its way to the coil. When you fire up the coil, it doesn’t have anything wet on it, which would explain the low amount of vapor and it getting hot very quickly.

          • cheers for the info, i actually went out and bought the tfv8 big baby beast today and tried it on my fuchai 213plus the coils are v8 baby – t6 core 0.2 ohm sextuple coils best betwen 70 -90 watts, coil is wicking out awesomely instant hits now, killer flavor and the tank stays a so much cooler now and i mean a lot cooler , i’m vaping in power mode at 65 watts to 75 watts and theirs is so much more vapor now, not hot not dry but just right now. i would recommend the big baby beast anyday especialy for the new fuchai cloor screen mods. been good chatting vaping interest me a lot, so you’ll probably here from me any mate take care fellow vapor… and vape on

    • The V8-T8 coil wasn’t designed for temperature control. It uses Kanthal wire and organic cotton. Only use this coil is wattage mode. 90% of the time, if there’s multiple coils like this or coils that do high wattage, then it’s most likely going to use Kanthal wire.

  5. I just got my Fuchai 213 mini the day before yesterday. I charged it that night and woke up to a full charge. I charged it last night and woke up to the wattage down to 31 and it was still charging . I put it back to 40 and it’s still yet to get to a full charge. SNYTHING I Can do? It’s attached to a 5v 2a charger.

  6. My Fuchai 213 plus worked fine until I woke up today. Èverytime I screw on an atty it auto fires at full wattage ànd won’t stop until I unscrew it. Mod is fine otherwise. Not sure what I should do. I only bought it 2 weeks ago. Please help. I need to save my favorite mod.1+

    • Have you tried removing the batteries and reinserting them? If the issue persists, you may need to contact Sigelei for support or the store you purchased it from. If there is a way to upgrade or replace the default firmware, I’m sure that will fix it.

  7. Hi, I was wondering if the Aspire Atlantis tanks are compatible with the Sigelei 213. From what I’ve read about this box mod, I think I would love to have it but I really don’t want to buy a new tank.

  8. I was trying to reset the puff counter and to do that you have to hold the + & – button while installing the batteries. Well I accidentally held the fire button down as well and it recalibrated the device and now my ohm reading is off by .05 to .1 ohms. Do you by any chance know how to fix this?

  9. Help I have been using a Sigelei Fuchai 213 (with my favorite Arctic tank) for several months and I LOVE IT! I seem to have inadvertently hit a combination of buttons that messed up all my settings. Originally, I used the factory settings and only increased the wattage to my taste. I have restored to factory settings but when I try to increase the wattage as I had before the display reads “resistance setting only for temp mode”. I can’t seem to find a way out of this.
    As a result, I am stuck vaping at 40 watts, a bit underwhelming.

    I would appreciate any suggestions 🙂
