UWELL Nunchaku vs Nunchaku 2 - What’s the difference ?

Hello and welcome everyone to brand new comparison blog. With the arrival of the brand new Nunchaku 2 Vape Kit from Uwell landing on our metaphorical online shelves, I thought it would be a great time to have a little look back at the original Nunchaku and compare it with Uwell’s newest vaping kit.

New Screen Placement and buttons on the Nunchaku 2

A really nice feature on the new kit is the screen placement. On the original Nunchaku Kit, if you remember, the screen was right down at the bottom of the device next to the battery compartment near the wattage increase and decrease buttons. On the new Nunchaku 2 kit, the screen has been relocated to the top of the device near the tank. This makes it a lot easier to read when you are using the device as it is just above the firing button.

Another thing to note is the wattage increase and decrease buttons have been removed from the device and it only has the single firing button which is also used to navigate the menu.

Gyroscope wattage feature 

The new device now features a gyroscope sensor, this means the wattage can be controlled by tilting the mod to the side. This allows you to tilt the mod to the right to increase the wattage and to the left to decrease the wattage when you are in the menu and have selected the wattage function.

Batteries and Charging for the Nunchaku 2

To charge the new Nunchaku 2 device you can use the micro USB port on the back of the mod, although I would have preferred Uwell to use a type-C charging port due to the Nunchaku 2 using larger 20700 or 21700 batteries. The mod does come with a 18650 battery adapter which you can use if you would prefer to continue using 18650 batteries rather than changing to either a 20700 or 21700 battery instead.

Max power and battery options

The first huge difference that is noticeable upon first glance between the two versions of the Nunchaku range of kits is the battery type. The original Nunchaku Kit was a single 18650 tube mod that had a maximum power output of 80W however the new Nunchaku 2 Kit is a single 18650/20700/21700 battery device with a maximum power output of 100W. The 20W difference may not seem a lot as a figure but in terms of vaping, it is a substantial difference.

Information Displayed on the newly styled screen

The screen display on the new Nunchaku will give you just about enough information in my opinion, with the wattage, mode that the device is currently using, the resistance of the coil within the tank and battery life. A feature that I really do like with the Nunchaku 2 mod is the Mech mode. This will allow you to use the device in the way that you would use a mechanical mod. This will draw the power directly from the batteries and would be ideal if you were looking to replace your Nunchaku 2 Tank with a rebuildable atomizer.

Size Difference between Nunchaku 1 and Nunchaku 2

There is a slight increase in the size of the Nunchaku 2 mod when compared with the original Nunchaku mod. This is mainly due to the battery that the Nunchaku 2 can accommodate. 20700 and 21700 batteries have a larger diameter than 18650 batteries although the style of the device does not make it that noticeable and it still feels great to hold and fits in your hand perfectly.
