A Complete Guide To The Wismec Predator 228

West Coast Vape Supply

If you’re looking for a complete guide to the Wismec Predator 228 vape mod or just need guidance on how to use it, check out our in-depth, and very detailed guide to everything Predator related. Felt by many to be Wismec’s challenge to the Alien Mod by SMOK, the Predator 228 mod is a beast in its own right. The Predator 228 quickly gained traction on the market, due in part to its powerful Wismec branding, but mainly because it is a rock solid device. With an easy to use menu system, a large vertically stacked OLED screen, a large clicky side fire button, temperature control settings, and the ability to fire up to 228 watts on a pair of 18650 batteries, the Predator is a solid choice.

Wismec Predator 228There’s no doubt the Predator was brought onto the market to not only rival, but out-perform any other dual 18650 regulated device currently available. However, not everyone can pick it up and figure everything out in one shot. One of the main reasons we put out these guides is the fact that as soon as most of us open the box and pull out the device, the instruction manual goes in the trash — it’s human nature. We want to take the worry out of life as much as possible, which is why we are going to list every feature, all of its specifications, as well as its menu options over the next couple of pages.

This guide has 5 pages in total, please visit each one to become masters of the Wismec Predator 228. If this guide helps you in any way, please share it with your friends. We want as many vapers to learn about this product before or after they’ve bought their Wismec Predator 228, so your sharing power is much appreciated.

  1. You forgot one.

    To reset the puff counter on the Wismec Predator
    1) Press the fire button 3 times
    2) Press the left adjustment button to select the puff counter “P”
    3) When the puff sign blink, keep pressing the fire button and then you can reset the puffs to zero

  2. Had this for a week and for some reason my side button stopped working and the adjustment buttons on the front make the mod fire without stopping. Returning this for a new one. Nothing I have done will make this work again

  3. My Predator’s display just ceased working this weekend. Last Saturday it would still show the command confirmation like Stealth On/Off or Key Locked/ Unlocked. It just wouldn’t show anything on display. It still fires my RDTA so it’s not totally broken. I may need to return this to the reseller where I got it from…

  4. I have never seen my Predator ask me if my coil is new.

  5. How do I reset my puff count I recently just got my predator thanks in advance

  6. Can someone please tell me how to get the key lock off. For some reason on both my units it’s on key lock and I can’t change the watts. I have tried everything they say to do.

  7. Had my Predator 228 for a few months before things started getting weird. I usually use it in TC mode and the resistance calculation would start resetting and asking if I was using a new coil or the old one. Then when pressing the button, the heat would bounce up and down before outputting almost 0W while saying the temp was at the preset limit, even though it was cool. I dismantled it and cleaned everything, which seemed to fix it for a few weeks, now the 510 connector is loose and the TC mode is almost unusable. I love the design but this is a very poorly made mod. Stay clear of it, I won’t be replacing it with another.

    • And also, it randomly switches into Wattage mode and has to have the atty removed to set it back to TC mode. Finally it will now often report atty short, but when I put the atty onto another mod it fires fine.

      • That’s a sure problem the 510 is starting to come loose. I’ve had 2 and while neither has came out I get short issues all the time. Sometimes taking the tank off or batteries out and resetting the board helps but just temporarily, I’d suggest taking it apart and soldering 510 to the case but make sure to sand flush so everything will fit back but if your not comfortable with solder I’d recommend a new mod.

  8. got to say i have had no problems until recently, it says attomiser short, i have to take the batteries out and back in and it works again, is it on the way out and do i need to replace the unit or is it a simple fix?
    i have cleaned the unit so no juice on it, its been well looked after so not sure why, i have used several tanks on it and they are fine but 1 tank will not work on it?/ any advice would be greatly appreciated tia……..

  9. The display on mine has flipped upside down. How can the be fixed
