The Z-Max V1 mod from Smoktech is a Variable Voltage and Variable Wattage device at a relatively cheap cost. Solidly built from either chrome or stainless steel the Z-Max V1 also features a red LCD screen for accessing the various menu options available. The menu is operated by a single round plastic button located under the LCD screen, the button is also used for activating the device.

Error Codes

LOR - Atomiser/cartomiser resistance is too low.

LOU - Battery voltage is too low, replace or charge battery.

WSC - Short circuit in faulty atomiser/cartomiser.


Unfortunately, the Z-Max V1 was found to be quite inaccurate in it's voltage settings and Smoktech quickly released the Z-Max V2 whilst Shenzhen Sigelei Technology released the OLED sporting Z-Max Sigelei
