    Hi fellow vapers.
    I have noticed a deal on this device that's almost unbeatable for a brand new mod with a DNA250 board

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this device.

    I did some research and it seems to be a fingerprint magnet but that not a deal breaker for me since i'm trying to get the best vape on a low budget that I can.

    The Asmodus Oni 167W is like the Lost Vape Efusion Duo it has a dual 18650 battery sled installed which will produce 167 watts (the Effusion Duo w/DNA200 was 133 watts) but also the battery sled is removable and the wiring inside can accommodate a lipo pack allowing the DNA board to go up to the full 250 watts.

    I see online the second best deal is on eBay for $89.99 shipped.

    With coupon code I can get this device for $49.95 shipped.

    Are there any cons to this device at this price?

    To all of my Vaping Underground friends and family thank you for your time and I am very interested on hearing your opinion on this matter.:)






    By the way the site/deal:

    https://www.vaporrange.com/Oni-167W-DNA250-TC-Mod-p/oni-167w-dna250.htm

    The coupon code to bring the price from $54.95 to $49.95 = holiday10percent


    They only have "Neo Chrome" color left which is like that rainbow chrome.
    The color wouldn't be my first choice but for under $50 I don't give a shit.

    I have the Asmodus/Starss Oni 167w DNA- it is the old style DNA board not the newer C DNA- I love mine- I have the Rainbow Neo Chrome- I am vaping with it now, LOL
    I use 2 18650 batteries with mine- pretty long battery life- yes the battery sled is removable and you could install a lipo pack- but since I don't need 250w I didn't get the Lipo battery.
    I got mine from Vaporrange- that place is great, I pretty much buy all my gear thru them- free fast shipping and great pricing, they are Asmodus, just thru Vaporrange they can sell other brands.
    The only cons of the Oni 167W DNA is the size, pretty big mod, but not uncomfortable or heavy.
    Fingerprint magnet
    I love this mod and am glad I have it!

    This is good.
    I already pulled the trigger before posting.

    The old DNA250 board costs about the same as this entire device.

    I am between 70 and 80 watts usually between 70 and 75.

    I try to build between 0.20 and 0.25ohms getting as close as I can to 0.25.

    I use 316SS and dual coil RTA's so it's 12 to 13 wraps per coil of 23ga.

    Also I have the Efusion Duo which fits my had great and compared dimensions.

    The oni is only about 5mm longer, 5mm shorter, and about the same thickness.

    I have this mod and love it. Yes, it is a fingerprint magnet, but it works well and was inexpensive for a mod with a DNA chip. I'm happy that I purchased it. [​IMG]

    It Is The Geekvape Blitzen- Vapes great and the color match(rainbow) is great too, matches the Oni perfectly.
    I got my Blitzen from Eciggity about a year ago- awesome sale on it, I think it was around $17.00 shipped- I would love to get the Blitzen in all the colors- one of my favorite RTAs. There is also a blue one.

    Yes you are right about the cost of a DNA250 board and the AsmodusOni is very well made mod and to get this mod for the price of just the board alone is a steal , you are going to love it!
    I bought mine back in March, the had the gold and blue one too at the time from Vaporrange, I really wanted the Red, but sold out- and it gets used daily and still looks like the day I bought it, minus all the fingerprints- LOL
    Granted this isn't a mod I take out of the house and I set it on a cloth to keep from scratching the bottom. I have 2 Asmodus Minikin V2 in Rainbow and the bottoms are very scraped up on those with what looks like copper showing thru- but the finish on the Oni is so much better, not a scratch or scrape on the Oni finish.
    How exciting that you did buy this- you are gonna love it!

    Definitely one I've had my eye on for literally MONTHS at VaporRange, but have been distracted over and over by other kit.

    Just got my first Asmodus mod from the Hardware thread, and if the Oni is the same size as the Minikin Reborn, I may give it a pass, just because of its size. I have to just wait and see if I can get used to the hand-feel of the device. At the moment it's a little uncomfortable, a little too wide(deep?) for me. The dimension I have a problem with is the length from the side that has the screen to the side that is the spine of the battery door.

    Going to check dimensions...

    ETA: It looks like the Oni is about 17mm taller, 1 mm deeper, and the same width as the Minikin Reborn.

    Yes the Oni is a bit bigger than the Minikin Reborn-
    I took a side by side picture of the Oni DNA167w with my Asmodus Minikin V1.5(very similar in size to the Reborn)
    Yes the Oni would be very uncomfortable for you to hold if you find the Reborn uncomfortable.
    You should get the Asmodus Minkin V2- much smaller than the Reborn and comfortable to hold.

    The wrap on the Minikin in your pic - is that where your avatar pic is from?

    There is no wrap on the Minikin V1.5- it is a chrome(mirror) cover and picking up the reflection of the place mats-

    Oh, cool! I bet that looks sharp in the mirror finish. Fingerprint magnet, though, eh? I'd like that, though (not that it's a fingerprint magnet, but the mirror finish).

    Yes the silver chrome is pretty nice- looks great with the gold Minikin V1.5- silver and gold!
    These chrome mods have a beautiful finish- love the Neo Chrome on the Oni DNA167- just beautiful.
    oh well with finger prints- LOL

    OK,
    I'm getting excited to get this thing now.:vapemail:
    I ordered it Saturday so it should ship on Monday.

    Do you have any idea how long the free shipping takes?

    The red one in the youtube video has different engravings than the chrome.

    Should be 3 days for shipping so you should have that Wednesday - Thursday if USPS doesn't mess up.
    I was supposed to have my Ultroner Aether squonk mod on Saturday- that was my expected delivery date as per USPS- nope, never came.
    Fingers crossed that I get it today!

    Yes the Red one has the large Oni design on it! They were all sold out when I bought mine.I still love my rainbow one, has a small Oni engraving on the side .
    I used to have the OG Sigelei Oni 75w that had a big Oni engraving on it, but I PIF to a friend here in VU!
    That was only a single 18650 battery mod, not a long enough battery life for me. The Asmodus Oni 167DNA is a dual 18650 which is great battery life for me at 30w-35w.
    Here is a photo of what that looked like

    The mod is great. It's a bit large, but large and DNA kind of go together. As far as battery life and the actual vape, I couldn't be happier. I love the thing.

    The colors on these things at vaporrange are all over the place.

    When I ordered there was only "neo" chrome

    Last night there was chrome, neo chrome, blue chrome, and gold.
    Today it's neo chrome and gold.

    I guess they found a few extras laying around.

    Also, I found a different 20% off code (JULYTHE4TH) that brings the price down to $43.95

    It's taking massive amounts of self control to not break and buy another one for that price.:tantrum:

    The tracking says to expect it Thursday.:bunny::vapemail:

    I have the old Sigelei 150 watt pre TC version.
    It's the same shape and style as the Sigelei Oni but bigger and without engravings.

    YES!:bunny:

    It's perfect.
    I'm glad I found the deal.

    I just happened to be looking for a DNA200/250 mod for real cheap at the right time.

    It got here super fast.
    It was here on Wednesday.:vapemail:

    Awesome deal!

    I have a fresh question.
    Has anyone looked into getting a lipo for this mod?

    I took the battery sled out and measured the biggest lipo i could find that would fit is only 11.8wh and the dual 18650 setup is over 16wh (watt hours)

    That seems like a downgrade in battery life just so I can tun the mod up past 167 watts.
    I am between 70 and 80 watts so I don't need to go any higher.

    At the time I bought mine- Vaporrange was selling the Lipo battery that went with the Oni for around $14.00
    I didn't buy it- since I vape mainly around 30-35w .
    You could call Vaporrange and ask which Lipo would be best for the Oni 167w

    You put the useful video review up- LOL! Thanks!
    that is why I quoted you- Nice that I could stop freeze it to see what Lipo battery Andy-O was using.

    I looked into it that night and that exact battery does not appear to be readily available any more and would probably be pretty old if somebody found one.

    However, it's a near certainty that one of the outfits that supplies the RC (radio controlled) community has something that would fit and work. Might have to change the connectors (maybe), but that would be a relative triviality.

    Well folks, I finally ordered one of these.

    Now that I've had the Minikin Reborn for a few weeks, I have been able to adjust just fine to the size of it. In fact I've come to like it quite a lot.

    It has to have been at least six months I've been looking at the Oni. I'm super excited now that it's on order!

    I hope you like it as much as I like mine- I use mine daily, one of my favorite mods.
    Yes it is on the bigger , heavier side - my stay at home mod!
    The price is too good to pass by for a very well made DNA mod!

    I did go ahead and order a wrap for it, which I hope will fit. I found some discussions online that talked about the Oni 133 being in the same housing as the Oni 167, and it just so happens that VaporSkinz has wraps for the 133. Once I started thinking about what you said about the bottom needing protection from scratches, a wrap just seemed like the thing to do.

    If you're interested, I'll let you know if it fits and works out, once everything arrives.

    I'm really, really excited about getting this mod. Now trying to decide what kind of atty to put on it. Oddly enough, I am leaning toward a black Merlin Mini RTA, if I can find one stateside. Or perhaps a Griffin Mini. Dual coils aren't so bad in an RTA, and Griffins are easier to find.

    ETA: By the way, I meant to tell you - that Ultroner mod you just got is the bomb! I love Asian-themed art and decor (I truly am a Buddhist at heart) and that thing just lit me right up. Beautiful!

    I forgot about this mod. They have it for just under $100 on asmodus's wholesale site, and 1/2 that if you have a wholesale account through them. Im going to pick one up this week if for nothing else but the chip. I think they have about 3-4 colors, gold silver, and rainbow that i know of.

    I haven't, but I typically vape at 50W, 500°F in TC mode or 70-80W in wattage mode.
