Limitless LMC 200W TC Box Mod Review
A brand new mod I’m going to talk about today comes to us from the Limitless Mod Co. Of course, I’m talking about the Limitless LMC 200W Box Mod, a beast of a device with very appealing aesthetics. Limitless is a manufacturer of premium vaping gear and this mod is no different – quality design, high performance, and quite a looker, too. So without any further ado, let’s dive into the Limitless LMC 200W box mod review!
Limitless LMC Box Mod Packaging
This mod comes in a nice rectangular plastic box that keeps it all snug and safe and prevents and damage during transport. It’s a no frills packaging – the top cover is see-through so this pretty boy will stare right back at you once you open the box. The back of the box is adorned with Limitless logo and their Facebook and Instagram pages so you know where to direct all those cool pictures you take with the mod.
You will also see a disclaimer in the back. Basically, it tells you that this mod is not for beginners. It’s a box mod geared toward experienced users. A few words on that:
- Make sure your batteries are safe to use in variable voltage devices.
- Make sure the batteries are fully wrapped – don’t play around with that!
- Inspect your atomizers before using it with Limitless Box Mod
LMC is not responsible for mistreating and misuse of this product, which is completely understandable. There are a lot of things that can go wrong if you’re not an experienced user so consult an experienced builder in your local vape shop before using rebuildable atomizers with this mod.
In the package, you are going to receive:
- Limitless 200W Box Mod
- 2 Interchangeable Plates (standard red with LMC logo)
- User Manual
The user manual you get with this vape mod is extremely basic – it’s more of a leaflet than a manual really. However, it does cover everything you need to know at the beginning, from basic navigation to display warnings. To be perfectly honest, this is actually a pretty basic mod when you think about it but I do believe that manufacturers should be a bit more detailed with their instructions, for the sake of more casual users at least.

Aesthetics and Design
Right off the bat, you’re going to notice that LMC Box Mod is a pretty hefty device and you might get an impression that it’s slightly difficult to handle. You’re not going to be very wrong. I love how this device looks, don’t get me wrong, but it does take some getting used to.
The biggest problem for me is that it doesn’t have any rounded parts – it’s a rectangular box, basically. There are two cut-outs on opposite sides of it (when viewed from the front). One is right above the screen and the other is opposite to it. This makes the device slightly easier to handle but it’s far from being an ergonomically designed piece. However, that’s not too big of an issue, it just means that you’re going to have to get used to it.
The biggest design surprise with Limitless LMC 200W vape mod is the use of interchangeable cover plates. These plates cover the wide sides of the mod and are magnetic and removable. Lifting one plate gives you access to your battery chamber and the other one is there purely so you could completely redesign the look of your mod. This is a great design feature because it allows you to play with the look of your mod without having to invest in a completely different one.
You will get one set of plates with the mod and it’s the standard red set with small LMC logos on one side and one large logo on the other side. However, you can purchase additional plates from LMC – Green Bandana, Snow Camo, Skull Chief, Aztec, Multi-Color Bandana, and Red Bandana, the choice is all yours. If you’re skilled with your hands you can even have your own design and attach it to the plates or make a completely different set of interchangeable plates yourself.
I have one issue with these plates (I know, I know – I have a bone to pick with pretty much everything). They are a horrible fingerprint magnet. If you’re suffering from slight OCD, like I do, you’re going to spend a lot of time wiping this mod down.
Limitless LMC 200W Build Quality
This might come as a shock to you, but I’ve already dropped this device – not once, but twice! If you’ve been reading my past reviews you’ll know I do that quite a lot. From now on, my official stance is not that I’m clumsy but that it is the way that I test the quality of make of equipment.
Limitless 200W vape mod took the test like a champ – there’s no scratch on it whatsoever. One reason why this device is so heavy is the fact that premium materials were used in its construction. The magnetic plates are made from some sort of sturdy plastic (I can’t identify it but it’s pretty resistant to bumps and bruises) and the outer casing is made from brushed stainless steel (black). Everything on it sits flush – the buttons don’t rattle, the screen seamlessly blends into the construction, and the plates are a perfect fit and don’t budge a millimeter once they’re properly set.
Screen and Menu Functionality
For me, the biggest drawback of this device sits squarely in this section.The OLED display is located to the side of the mod and it’s pretty small. That entire side is covered with a mirror-like surface that might come in handy if you’re a dashing young girl who wants to check your makeup real quick without going to the restroom (no offense ladies, I personally always make sure that my makeup is spot on, too). Other than that, and the fact it looks pretty nice, it’s completely useless.
The real purpose of that mirror-like surface is to collect fingerprints from people who merely look at it oddly. I’m serious – the first day I picked up this mod from the box it already had 6 sets of fingerprints on it!
Now, the mirror might be large but the display really isn’t. It’ covers about one quarter of the surface and is centrally located. The info that it displays is limited to temperature, mode, memory slot in use, resistance, and battery life. That’s not so bad – at least, it wouldn’t be if you didn’t have to squint to make out the readings.
The menu could be a bit simpler. I’m going to give you a quick rundown on how to operate this device because it’s fairly different than any other mod I’ve encountered. Suffice to say that clicking + and – buttons won’t change your temperature at all. It’s a bit more complicated than that.
Power up/Power down
To power up the device, click the fire button 5 times. To power it down, click the fire button 5 times fast (otherwise, after the third click it’s going to lock itself) and then click the + button (the one closer to the OLED display).
Click the fire button 3 times fast to lock the device and three times fast to unlock it.
To enter the menu mode, you’re going to have to click the fire button five times fast. Now, cycling through the menu mode is not done with the + and the – button – it’s done by clicking the fire button continuously. Items are selected by pressing the + button.
You’re going to be presented with several options here. Going to Mode Power will select that mode when you click the + button. You can select Mode Temp by scrolling to it and pressing +. After you do that you will be prompted to select your coil. Your choices are Ni200, Titanium, and SS.
Other functions in the menu mode include temp settings and screen rotation. Temperature setting allows you to set temperature in 0.1 degree increments and screen rotation flips the OLED display by 180 degrees.
Luckily, there is an easier way to adjust your temperature that doesn’t require you to constantly go into menu mode. Remember how I said that + and – buttons are not temperature controls? When in normal operating mode the – button flips between three working modes: soft, standard, and powerful (I’ll get to them a bit later). The + button switches between 3 preset memory slots. The way to change the temperature on this mod is to click the + button once to be moved to a different slot and then adjusting the temperature before making your selection with the fire button.
In my opinion, this deviation from standard menu operations is unnecessary and confusing. Limitless obviously wanted to try something new – it’s not that it didn’t work out or that it’s bad, I just don’t see it catching on.
Your dual batteries go under one of the removable plates. The good thing about this design is that Limitless took extra care when designing the battery chambers. The pins won’t damage your battery wrapping, which is a case with many of these box mods.
As for battery life, I can’t say it’s very impressive. Even vaping on lower wattage seems to drain the battery pretty quickly. Vaping above 80W setting will drain it in about 5-6 hours. I spent a day vaping in the lower 40ties and it barely managed to last the full day. However, all dual battery mods have this particular con and LMC 200W mod still outperforms many of its competitors when it comes to battery life, so I’m inclined to say it’s not that bad in this department. Of course, battery life is going to greatly depend on how you vape – the higher the wattage setting, the faster the drain.
Limitless LMC 200W Box Mod Review – Performance
This is a pretty simple and basic vape mod, despite its high-tech appearance. One thing I’d like to stress is that this mod doesn’t come near 200W – I had it tested at my local vape shop (I lack the equipment to do it myself) and the results were good, but they weren’t excellent. On 0.2ohm coils you can expect up to 185W, which is pretty great. Go higher than that (for example, 0.5) and that number will drop to low 150’s. Personally, I never go that high so it’s a non-issue for me. On the other hand, there are vapers who are pushing it to the limits and this is going to be an important piece of info for them.
There are three working modes that you get with Limitless LMC 200 wattage mod and these are soft, standard, and powerful. These three are basically pre-heat function modes that allow you to ramp up power to fire those chunky builds almost instantly. It’s a pretty nifty little addition that’s much appreciated by vapers who are looking for a harder hit.
The biggest downside of this device is that it doesn’t have a USB connection. Of course, this isn’t related to onboard charging – always charge your dual mod batteries together and using a quality charger. This is more about the fact that without a USB connection there is no hope of firmware upgrades in the future. Even though Limitless LMC 200W TC box mod is a quality device, for some vapers this is going to be a definitive deal-breaker.
