The Hell's Gate Mini body has been machined out of stainless steel, with a brushed finish to it, seamlessly wrapping around the device.
The front and back of the device are made out of black plastic, with tappered edges leading up to the stainless steel.
As you turn the device over, there are 7 small venting holes, sitting below the internal battery.
Buttons & USBLocated on the right hand side of the device, is the matching stainless steel round fire button, which has been flush mounted with the body, if at all it is slightly recessed. It has a really nice positive click to it.
Just below the fire button, set towards the bottom of the side, are the unmarked control switches, each one slightly raised at each end, allowing them to sit just proud of the body. They remind me of the type of rocker switch, you have on a mobile phone to control the volume. As with the fire switch, these to have a nice positive click to them. All three are of the buttons are very well set, with little to no button rattle.
The Hell's Gate features a Mirco USB socket located below the control switches, which allows you to charge the inbuilt battery. When charging the two tiny LEDs above the socket illuminate red, to indicate it is charging. To fully charge the device takes about 5hrs. And when fully charged the LED lights will blink to indicate the battery is full.
The Hells Gate features a brass sprung loaded 510 connection, set into the top of the device, slightly off set to the right, which allows your 22/23mm atomisers to sit nicely without over hanging the curved top of the body.
The screen situated on the front of the device, behind a clear plastic section of the body plate. Is a 2inch TFT display.
The display is laid out in the form of a speedometer, located in the centre of the display, with the needle pointing to the selected wattage / Temperature. When in Wattage mode the speedo has a blue background.
With the volts, Amps and watts displayed in the middle.
When you switch to Temp mode, the speedo changes to green, and the tempature is displayed in the middle, in place of the volt and amps.
At the top of the screen, in both settings it displays the resistance of the Atomizer on the left, and the remaining battery charge on the right. And puff counter in the middle.
Just below the speedo and set in the foreground you have a grey bar, with three icon on.
- padlock : used to lock the device
- Cog : the enter into the menu mode.
- ? : to enter into the help screen.
Pressing the fire button 5 times turns the device on and off.
Pressing the fire button 3 times, enters into the function mode, and highlights the Cog Icon at the bottom.
Whilst the icon is selected you can alternate between the icons , using the function + & - . and then pressing the fire button to select.
Lock - when the padlock is selected. It asks you if you wish to lock the device buttons. Yes or No, and also tells you to unlock Press + & -.
Help - selection the ? Will display the technical data and specification of the device, and then allow you to scroll through 5 additional pages detailing the on screen messages that the device can display, and what they mean.
Settings (cog) - selecting the cog icon, takes you through to the settings menu.
Which allows you to continue to coil settings, reset the puff counter or exit back to the main screen.
In work settings, you can select the coil type that you have installed.
Choosing between power mode for Kanthal, or temp mode for Ni200 or Ti, which you can then choose to run in centigrade or Fahrenheit. Simply press the fire button will select.
Should you select the wrong work mode for the coil, after a couple of seconds of vaping, the device will stop firing and display "Atomizer not compatible"
Atheistic's and Build Quality
The Hell's Gate, is a very solid little mod,mind has a really premium feel to it. And fits perfectly in the hand,
I think the edge of the plastic, where is bevels off, could have been finished a bit better, as the edges on my one where quite sharpe. With the 2in TFT display the Hell's Gate mini, is defiantly eye catching, and from right angle has more the look of phone than a mod.
Performance & Real World Experiences
I have been using the device for a couple of weeks now, and I must say I have been quite impressed with this little pocket rocket. For a small mod it certainly has a kick to it. As soon as you press that fire button, you get instant coil action. It seems to ramp up the power slightly for the first split second, to get the coils hotter quickly. I can test it, but that defiantly work it feels like, when you are vaping on it, you get an instant deliver of power.
I regard to the screen and the menus, I found them really easy to navigate, although I do think I would have preferred to not have the speedo, and just had more information displayed clearer on the one screen, considering the screen is so big, the information that you refer to, such as the resistance, battery power and wattage/temp, seem really really small. And not as clear as I would have liked. May be in the settings it should allow you to choose the type of display layout you want.
Battery - the internal battery lasted really well, and I could go all day and evening on one charge, with out having to get down to the lower section of the Barrett display, where I did find that the performance seemed to dip as the battery charge ran down.
The device does seem to get quite hot when you have been using it, and due to it design seems to take quite a while to cool down, not sure if that is due to the chip set or the battery layout.
Great little mod, that performs as well as it looks. A real pocket rocket, with plenty of features.
