Innokin Gala Review | Tap and Shake Pod System

The Innokin Gala is an open pod system and follows on from the huge hit that was the Innokin EQs pod mod.
innokin gala colour LED

 

Innokin have a superb track recornulld of beginner/mouth to lung vape kits, producing what was one of the best selling series in the vaping world, the latest in the series being the Innokin Endura T18ii.

So I have high hopes for the Gala kit.

What Can We Expect From The Gala Pod System by Innokin?

The Innokin Gala, as mentioned, is an open pod system so you can refill the pod with your own choice of e-liquid. So once you start to lose flavour and the coil reaches the end of its life, you chuck the whole pod.

It comes with the latest PLEX3D designed coils in a variety of colours and has an LED light bar that you can change to display a different colour when you take a vape. The change is made by tapping and shaking the device. Interesting. Let’s take a closer look.

The product was supplied for the purposes of this review by Innokin, thank you. As always my opinions are my own.

Design and Build Quality

The Innokin Gala comes in a number of different colours, I have the Saphire, and it has a nice stylised G logo and the word Gala in silver.Innokin Gala kit colours

Below that you have the light bar running down most of the battery (more on that in a moment).

Picking it up you immediately feel like it’s a nice piece of kit, just enough weight to feel quality without being heavy.gala by innokin in hand

It’s really discrete and fits nicely in the hand with the curved edges, despite having a shiny surface I never felt like I didn’t have a grip on it.

Controls and LEDs

There’s no buttons as it’s a draw activated device. The only control you have is over the LED light bar that is about 2mm wide and is about half the length of the complete kit.

This will light up when you put a pod in it and after you’ve taken a vape, to show you battery life.

Confusingly putting a pod in will show the battery one way (colour of flash) and after vaping it will use another (number of flashes). This is because you can set it to be any of the 7 colour options when you vape on it.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Kits

3 Taps

The instructions tell you that you need to tap the “G” logo 3x quickly to light up the LEDs with whatever colour is currently set, then if you shake the device it will cycle through your 7 different options Blue, Magenta, Red, Pink, Yellow, Aqua, Green and Off.

Then you either wait 4 seconds or take a puff on it to set the colour… Except that “Tap the device” doesn’t really describe what you need to do.

I spent a good 15 minutes touching the logo, tapping it, harder, softer, slower, quicker. Until eventually I just repeatedly ended up tapping away to get it to light up.

Turns out that it’s not a touch sensitive button, it doesn’t respond to the deformation of the plastic casing, or anything terribly sophisticated. It seems like it’s a simple accelerometer that is calibrated for short, sharp, shocks.

I actually found out the most reliable way of getting this to work, was holding the base of the device and flicking the device to hit my other hand fairly forcefully.

Similarly if you do this 5 times, you get “Light Show” mode, which cycles through the 7 colours continuously until you either perform the secret handshake again, or wait 30 minutes.

Not entirely sure that’s a great idea if you’re trying to prolong your battery life. Speaking of which!

Battery Life

After recently testing a device with a 1,000mAh battery that could give me two days with a good tail wind, I thought I’d happily get a day.

Unfortunately during my normal day I walked to work (15 minutes) vaped on my lunch break (45 minutes) and vaped on the walk home… or I would have done if it had managed to last my whole walk!

For me, this wasn’t an all day device and sadly the battery life didn’t impress with the device I tested.

Pods and Filling

You get two pods in the kit, the 0.5Ω pod is preinstalled, and you get a spare 0.8Ω.

I’m always pleased to see pod manufacturers include a spare, not enough do it so it’s great to see Innokin have listened to the wants of vapers here.

The other plus point is that you can easily tell them apart as the 0.8Ω coil has a bright green surround and the 0.5Ω is black.innokin gala replacement pods

On one side of pod is the silicon tab that you lift up to fill with a stopper that fits inside the fill pot.how to fill the innokin gala pod

This is without doubt the single worst experience I have had filling any tank or pod system.

Tip Adapters

The 3 tip adapters that you get in the box are there because there’s only a small diameter fill hole, and there is no secondary hole to release the air.innokin gala tip adapters

Coupled with the fact it’s quite a deep hole that your tip has to travel down, you quickly end up with an airlock and juice spilling over the top of the pod.

I feel like the tip adapters were included as an afterthought when they realised they’d made it impossible to fill.

They are supposed to fit onto the end of an e-liquid bottle and are very narrow so you put it down into the pod and it allows the air to escape around it.

Except they don’t fit tightly onto the bottle, so filling it up becomes a three handed job where you need to hold the pod, hold the the bottle, hold the tip adapter.

And the reason you need to hold the tip adapter is because if it you put it all the way into the pod, you end up drawing e-liquid back up, and because it doesn’t seal over the bottle, it just ends up spilling out the top of the adapter.

Similarly if you try to position it near the top of the tank, you run into the problem of the narrow but deep hole, and once again you form an airlock… and spill e-liquid all over the pod.

Lanyard

Innokin has some really nice photos of the pod kit in a leather pouch with lanyard.

However in the box you get a really basic lanyard with a small leather type loop that you put the device through. Then I guess you just have to hope it doesn’t fall out? As there’s no way of really tightening it on the device and nothing solid to attach it to.innokin gala lanyard

Also you need to avoid covering the airflow hole that’s on the side of the device. You can at least adjust the length of it.

How Does the Innokin Gala perform?

So after all of that, how does it vape?

Well, I’m pleased to say that the flavour is not bad at all.innokin gala colour LED

I tested both the 0.5Ω pod with the Plex3D Mesh coils and the 0.8Ω with the ceramic coils.

I used my standard 50/50 Berry Ice from Vape Simple at 9mg.

On both of these coils the flavour was pretty good and quite hard to tell the difference at first.

Not a great deal of vapour, which is normal for a device of this type, but a satisfying draw that feels similar to the cigarette.

I did find I was missing a bit of the throat hit that I’m used to from this e-juice, but that softness might suit people vaping 18mg e-liquid a little better.

Unfortunately on only the third day of using it I started to have problems.

The 0.5Ω coil leaked slightly inside the battery. Now this may well have been user error, but I’ve been careful pushing in the tab after filling, as well as cleaning the pod which became necessary due to the messy filling method.innokin gala leak

What’s more inexplicable is I started getting really bad dry hits from the 0.8Ω coil, and this is when it was full of 50/50 e-liquid.

This just should not happen and what I think might be going on is that the tiny air bubbles it produces were collecting near the wicking holes and stopping any fresh e-liquid from getting back into the coil.

Either that or the wicking material in this coil just isn’t up to people taking a few hits in quick succession.

I shook it about, let it rest, but the problem came back after only a few draws every time I tried again.

On both of the pods I also had to keep an eye on my air bubble. It would usually collect on one side so that as you vaped you were running the risk of having one side of the coil not being properly saturated as the air bubble gets bigger.

This was especially true as the two sides of the pod don’t level out their e-liquid levels easily at all.

Pros

  • Pretty good flavour
  • It looks nice
  • Well built, feels good in the hand
  • LEDs are kind of cool

Cons

  • Filling is a PAIN
  • Dry hits from one pod
  • Short battery life
  • Lanyard not the best

Final Review Verdict

So after my 0.5Ω coil gave out on me I persevered for a while on the 0.8Ω coil, but honestly it was just getting frustrating.

This is especially true as Innokin recommend you don’t vape it to less than a third full.

So with about 1.4ml of useable liquid, a pain to fill, and having to recharge all the time, I can’t see me picking the Innokin Gala pod up again now I’ve reviewed it.

With nice feel, the funky LED light, and the flavour it’s capable of, I was really hoping that it could become a good little shirt pocket pod kit for when I’m out and don’t want to take something more serious with me.

Unfortunately all of its downsides just overwhelm the positives.

Teslacigs Citrine 24 tank Preview

Teslacigs is back in touch. And again they will present another novelty. Rather, the official presentation, as such, has not yet been, but I gathered a bit of information after all. By the way, after numerous presentations of new boxing mods, the manufacturer decided to take a short break and submit a modest non-service to the public. It is likely that its release is timed to another new product, which simply has not been shown to anyone yet. It is likely that this tank will be implemented in tandem with it in the future, because you will not be cleared up in particular sales in this segment.

The exterior of the tank is rather unusual, and all because the developers decided to follow the newfangled trends and execute the hull almost entirely of transparent plastic. Probably, such a design for any public, because such decisions emerge here and there. It should also be borne in mind that the processing of such products costs the manufacturer several times cheaper than the usual metal construction.

Shield by GeekVape – Overview

This year one of the most interesting devices was the Aegis boxing mod from GeekVape . The novelty became the first, truly protected box with several very important qualities – real security, good pay and an adequate price tag. The only thing that surprised me a little was why the company did not release a complete atomizer, because it is almost an obligatory norm for manufacturers of this level. And so, with a slight delay, Shield Tank appeared , about which I now want to talk.
Shield by GeekVape - baby on SMOK vaporizers for your Aegis
I want to start with the fact that I really liked Aegis , in many respects, precisely because of the interesting design. As far as I know, the model sells very well, so I’m not the only one who liked boxing. Therefore, onGeekVape lay the task to make an atomizer, which will not yield to cool fashion. Honestly, I bet on dripku, but GeekVape felt that the tank will be more interesting.
Shield by GeekVape - baby on SMOK vaporizers for your Aegis
I found the tank myself on the manufacturer’s website, where quite recently the renders have been published and Shield doesn’t look very soft on them. I was already prepared to scold the designers, but then I found real photos and my opinion changed a little. The tank itself is not the most original design and resembles a bunch of analogs, for example, Digiflavor ‘s Bucho . The only thing that saves a little is the “protection” of the tank, which gives it an interesting look. But this item is not included in the kit, so you have to spend 🙂

Dimensions :

Diameter – 24 mm.

As I said above, I was pretty sure that they would make a drip for Aegis . As a result, they made an unattended tank, which doesn’t fit (in my understanding) with such a box. But if we ignore this, then we get a nice tank with standard features, as for its format. The truth is not without interesting features. So, engineers suggest using the following evaporators with a tank – IM1 – 0.4 ohm (40-60W); IM4 – 0.15 ohm (60-80W).

The highlight is compatibility with SMOK TFV8 Big Baby / Baby vaporizers . Not a bad choice extension, right? I think thanks to this, the number of potential buyers should increase. Air spiral obtained through the system of the lower airflow. Everything is standard – two slots and an adjustment ring.

I had some doubts about the normal capacity of the fluid reservoir, but GeekVape directly surprised me. Completely filled tank contains 4.5 ml. Holes for refueling are under the top cover, and in order to access them, you just need to press the “button”. From the side you can even see the pin on which the whole structure rests. I’d like to believe that everything was done with quality 🙂

Hellvape Dead Rabbit RTA Review

One of the most notable drips presented lately was the Dead Rabbit from Hellvape & Heathen . Developed in collaboration with a well-known reviewer, a dripulka is still a success. The Solo version gained considerable popularity , and now it’s the turn of the tank – Dead Rabbit RTA .
Dead Rabbit RTA by Hellvape & Heathen is now a tank.  Everything is good!  Base in place!
I want to immediately note that the designers managed to make it so that the relationship of all devices in the line is noticeable even with the naked eye. Even if you do not take into account the corporate logo engraved on the dome, then some common features with the original Rabbit are noticeable. Even if I inspired all this to myself, then it’s impossible to argue with the fact that the tank turned out to be stylish. Cool corrugated rings, giving brutality and a lot of color options. Cool! The overall picture is complemented by colorful drip types, a couple of which I would definitely like to get myself into the collection.
Dead Rabbit RTA by Hellvape & Heathen is now a tank.  Everything is good!  Base in place!
Apparently, the manufacturer is very pleased with his line and does not burn with the desire to change anything drastically. Perhaps this whole “corporate style” attracts many, but it still cannot last for long. It is necessary to change something, or the interest of buyers can die out. Well, okay, these are all lyrics, and now let’s see what the novelty hides under the hood.

Removing the cover, the user will find the same system as in the first drip. At first glance, there is no change, and the second too. Available are two racks consisting of four blocks. It is easy to guess that the spirals are in an upright position. Someone can be pleased with the opportunity to use in the mode of one helix. For fixing meet the side screws. Judging by the available photos, not afraid of even the fattest coils 🙂

iJoy Captain PD270 Mod Reviewed – Are 20700 Batteries Really The Future?

Introduction – The Captain PD270 mod from iJoy

Vaping giant, iJoy, out of Shenzhen, is hellbent on innovating and, somehow, they just keep hitting the money and it looks as though that could be the case again with the iJoy Captain PD270 mod.iJoy Captain PD270 review

Having released the first dual 26650 mod, a result of their partnership with Limitless: the iJoy Limitless Lux, along with a string of impressive RDAs out of the same partnership.

More recently, the first quad 18650 device and brother of the Maxo Zenith, the iJoy Maxo…we’ve continued to be impressed.

Now, once again, iJoy have pushed the envelope, with the release of the Captain PD270 regulated TC mod.

A device that runs on dual 20700’s:  a whole new breed of battery being introduced to the vaping world by iJoy.

Given the fact that we may have reached the limits as far as low ohm-age on our sub-ohm devices goes, the two areas that could, of course, still use tweaking are those of batteries and chip-sets.

The Captain PD270 proudly boasts winners in both departments. With impressive power, extreme ramp time, super responsiveness and seriously enhanced battery life, iJoy are set to make waves!

What’s In The Box

  • 1 x iJoy Captain PD270 box mod

  • Dual 18650 High-Amp Battery w/ Silicon Adapter

Build Quality & Design

The sturdy zinc alloy and carbon fibre frame of the iJoy Captain PD270, combined with the hefty weight of the fabulous dual 20700 batteries, amount to what I can only describe as a lethal weapon…if you threw it at anybody, that would be the end of them. It’s heavy.ijoy Captain PD270 mod and tank

On opening the neat box packaging, I was struck by the sexy frame and perfect, huge, square firing button.

 

The deep and solid 510 connection sits on an upper surface that is more than ample enough to fit a 30mm tank without any sign of overhang.

The design is a very simple rectangular cylinder with rounded corners, just big enough to house the hefty 20700’s inside.

The hinged battery door is thick and the hinges feel strong. The battery chamber is snug and the whole device feels compact, with no rattles whatsoever.

That’s not to say it’s not ergonomic, it fits perfectly in hand and plants your feet firmly on the ground with its weight.

I really do love the weight of it, when it’s in your hand, you know it’s there!

The stupendous, clicky firing button couldn’t be better placed and the screen display fits in all the details you could ask for.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Kits.

Accessories

I was delighted to discover that the dual 20700 batteries were generously included in the pack, not to mention the nifty, silicon 18650 adapter that will allow you to use the device with your old 18650s…not that you’ll necessarily want to.

How Does The Captain PD270 Box Mod Perform?

The IWEPAL chip is highly responsive and does it’s TC and regulating perfectly.

The device adjusts to and reads new atomizers accurately and instantly and I find the display and controls highly intuitive and comprehensive.

Puff counter, mode, battery levels, wattage, resistance and volts are all displayed and three clicks on fire will take you to the settings menu where you can into into TCR and mode settings, adjust screen time and reset your puffs.

The responsive up and down navigation buttons can also be used to alter the wattage when on the main the display.

I experienced an extremely fast ramp time and an all round brilliant vape throughout the wattage range and I love the fact that I can fit ANY of my tanks on it with no overhang!

It operates like a dream in the really high wattage range and the mode system, with user, soft, hard and normal settings is an easy and effective way to customize your vape for different moods.

I just want to add that I really love the fire button, its solid, reassuring and perfectly thumb sized!

How To Operate the Menu System

  • 5 clicks on fire switches the device on or off
  • Use the up down adjustment buttons below the screen to alter wattage or navigate the menu
  • Reach the menu with 3 clicks on fire
  • Some menus require you to use the fire button to navigate because you use the adjustment buttons to change figures, such as the TCR menu

How To Replace The 20700 Batteries

  • Open the hinged battery door by sliding it forward first and then opening
  • You’ll see small +- signs on the door, so you know which way to slide your batteries in

Battery Life

Well, there’s just no denying it, these batteries make all the difference.

I’m a heavy, high wattage vaper and it’s a pleasure to not have to charge every 6-8 hours.

Picture yourself vaping happily at 90 watts for a day and a half before really needing a charge.

The 20700’s are in between 18650’s and 26650’s, without the awkward thickness of the 26650’s.

I don’t have a lot of experience with 26650 devices but for me, dual 20700’s are all I can ask for and really take care of the nagging battery life issues I usually deal with every day, as a heavy vaper.

Also, the batteries fit in the standard Nitecore external chargers so you won’t have to worry about buying a special charger.

I found the on-board charge extremely fast.

What I Liked

I love the look and feel, the heavy weight and the carbon fibre finish.

Great, comprehensive screen display with easy controls.

Awesome that dual 20700’s are included (in the kit I received) thanks iJoy!

Excellent battery life. Marvelous, clicky buttons and super responsive.

A really powerful, satisfying vape.

What I Dislike

 

I can’t fault the device, as far as look, feel, functionality and power goes, it’s an absolute beast of a box mod!

Final Review Verdict

Well, not only have iJoy been extremely generous by including dual 20700’s with the Captain PD270…they’ve succeeded in creating yet another badass, high powered vape mod that looks, feels and vapes like a dream.

Maybe iJoy are right and 20700’s are the way of the future, they certainly make a big difference to me and now I wish all my devices used them.

This is a top notch device at a brilliant price.

The device works in various modes:

  1. Varivatt
  2. Bypass
  3. Start.

Main functions

The functionality of the Joyetech eVic Primo Mini boxing mod   is quite wide.

Varivatt – the main mode of soaring. In this mode, you can manually set the device power value. The maximum supported power value is 80 W, which is a good indicator for devices of this class. The minimum power is 1 W

Bypass activation activates the vape in the mech-mode. In this mode, the power of the device will directly depend on the battery charge level. The more charge there is, the more powerful the mod will be. On maintenance-free  evaporators  , this setting is undesirable.

Start mode is most suitable for beginners. When the start mode is on, the device will automatically adjust the power to the resistance value of the atomizer helix. The mod will memorize the last 10 power settings on various atomizers.

Thermal control modes on nickel, titanium and stainless steel are suitable for using  evaporators made from these materials. The range of temperatures available is + 100 … + 315 ° C or + 200 … + 600 ° F.

In TCR mode, you can pre-set the temperature settings for use in the mode selection menu. For this there are 3 memory slots.

The mod is equipped with a pre-heating function that allows you to determine the level of heating of the spiral after pressing the “Fire” button. This function is convenient to use when installed non-standard windings operating at high temperatures.

For optimal performance, it is better to use a liquid with an average concentration of glycerol (50-70%).

Using

The mod is controlled by the “Fire”, “+” and “-“ buttons. All the necessary information is displayed on the big screen. There are values ​​of power, resistance, temperature and battery charging.

The device turns on and off by pressing the “Fire” button five times.

By pressing the “Fire” button three times, the mode selection is activated. You can change them using the “+” and “-” buttons. First you select the mode you want. Then press the main “Fire” button to confirm the selection.

Pressing the “+” and “-” buttons simultaneously will lock the device. Thus, the buttons will not be pressed by themselves when the electronic cigarette is in a bag or pocket.

Pressing “Fire” and “-” activates the low power consumption mode (stealth mode). Simultaneous pressing of “Fire” and “+” will provide access to the preheat settings, as well as the appearance of the display menu.

The “+” and “-” buttons change the values ​​of power and temperature. If you hold one of them, quickly set the minimum or maximum value.

When hovering, the “Fire” button must be held down.

Advantages and disadvantages

This model has the following advantages:

  1. Compact size.
  2. Large selection of modes of operation.
  3. Powerful board.
  4. Replaceable battery.
  5. Convenient refueling technology.
  6. Stylish design.
  7. A large number of color options for fashion.
  8. Big screen.

However, it also has some minor drawbacks, for example, poor transmission of taste and lack of access to the  evaporator  when the tank is completely filled with liquid.

Primo Mini is the best combination of quality, functionality and price.

Joyetech Atopack Penguin SE Reviewed – It’s Just Not For Me

The Atopack Penguin Gets an Upgrade – So How Does it Vape?

This is the upgraded version of the original Joyetech Atopack Penguin – the ‘Special Edition’.

I didn’t get my hands on the first version but it seemed a heck of a lot of reviewers and vapers loved it.

ATOPACK_PENGUIN_SE

This is about a simple as vaping can get – you fill up the cartridge – pop on the coil – hit the fire button and vape.

There’s nothing to phase even the newest of vapers – no screens or settings – the chip will add as much power as it thinks you need depending on the coil.

Joyetech say this is both direct to lung [DTL] and mouth to lung [MTL] and comes with two coils.

Design wise it does indeed look like a cute little penguin so has it given me happy vaping feet?

Let’s take a closer look.

Inside the Box

  • 1 * Penguin SE battery
  • 1 * ATOPACK cartridge

Key Features

This is kind of a cross between a pod mod and an AIO [all in one device] – with the key feature being its total simplicity and I guess cool looks – yes it does look like a penguin particularly in the white and black version – very cute.

The refillable tank or cartridge has a TPD busting 8.8ml e-liquid capacity or if you’re in Europe a 2ml version is available – there’s space to write your e-liquid and other info on the side for future reference.

cartridge

Charging is super-fast – from flat to fully charged I timed it to be a little under 2 hours and vaping on the 0.25ohm coil I got 6 hours before the battery ran down and slightly longer with the 0.6ohm coil.

penguin coils

Joyetech say the JVIC coils are ‘kanthal with pure cotton wrapped in a ceramic cradle’ and promise ‘It takes a horizontal approach in discovering original and clear flavor as well as large clouds’ – more on that later.

The new Special Edition comes in a variety of colourful options: white – light blue – grey mix – purple mix – light pink and the plain black I received.

Design and Build Quality

Design wise the Joyetech Atopack Penguin SE is obviously modelled on a penguin and that’s either going to appeal to you or not – personally I like the looks.

Build wise everything is well put together and it feels like zinc alloy or at least a very light and tough material with a very good paint job.

atopack penguin se in hand

I haven’t used the original Penguin but I’m sure I read somewhere there wasn’t a juice window – the newer version has one and it’s shaped like an eye – a nice touch!

There’s no moving parts as such but pulling out and replacing the cartridge is easy enough and you get the minimal of rattling when it’s all put together.

It can get a little slippy from your finger oils so be careful as whilst it’s a tough little cookie – I don’t think it could handle too many falls on a hard surface.

How Does the Joyetech Atopack Penguin SE Perform?

First up you might be a little stumped on how the Joyetech Atopack Penguin works – the instruction manual is a little vague.

And hey I’m not the only reviewer who had to think about what to do in the first few minutes trust me!

atpocack penguin se

OK, once you’ve removed the silicone cover from the base of the cartridge filling is a doddle – but you MUST prime the coil and once in place let it sit for a good 10minutes or longer.

I began with the 0.25ohm coil and left it for the allotted time – but got an awful dry hit – I mean awful.

Looking at the photo I took of the 0.25ohm coil – there does appear to be some damage – not sure if that’s the reason for the dry-hit but trust me even an hour later it was still doing it!

I swapped it for the 0.6ohm coil and left it for half an hour after priming and whilst there was no dry hit the flavour was more than a little muted.

It was only a good 30minutes later the flavour came through and the vapour production surprised me somewhat – lots of it!

Joyetech say the 0.6ohm coil is best for MTL but for me it wasn’t restricted enough but did give a half decent to lung, sub ohm vape.

As I’ve said clouds were very good indeed however it did take my coils ¾ of a tank before I got the best out of them.

atopack seThe none adjustable airflow is just above the fire button and depending on which way you vape you can block it with your hand or lip which is a bit annoying.

Despite all that I have to say vaping on the Atopack Penguin SE is fun with a half decent flavour and plenty of clouds.

What I Like

Once you get past those first few moments wondering how it all fits together it really is a joy to vape on.

I’m not that excited by the flavour though – whilst it’s OK it’s not superb – but the vapour production is excellent.

It is extremely simple to use and over 8mls capacity and a reasonably long battery life means this is ideal for days out – it’s definitely not a juice guzzler.

And once those coils are broken in and soaked to the core they taste as if they’ll last an age – I’m into the 16th day and the taste is still clean – they wick well too even when chain vaping.

What I Don’t Like

There’s not a lot I don’t like – it is what it is a half decent fun vaping kit.

Not so sure it is a true MTL vape though I guess you could add a little tape to block of some of the airflow.

Speaking of the airflow it can get blocked off by your chin of hand if you’re not careful – not an issue if you vape with it pointing away from you.

Final Review Verdict

Having not used the original I can’t compare the two but as a standalone I think the Joyetech Atopack Penguin SE is a quirky cute fun little kit to vape on.

Look you’re not going to win any cloud chasing competitions even though the vapour is surprisingly good.

And flavour wise it isn’t bad but neither is it that good – especially the first half of the 8mls!

I was definitely interested in buying the Atopack Penguin but if I’m honest I’d have been a little disappointed.

That’s not to say I would put you off buying on as a spare or back-up – it’s just not for me.

Joyetech Exceed D19 Vape Pen Review

When it comes to vape pens, Joyetech just loves the concept of the all-in-one. That’s a great selling point because vaping beginners don’t want to get much into electricity science, they simply want to know what the good vaping is all about. But, at the same time, in most of the AIO vapes, you literally can’t change something you don’t like. You just have to use what they give you in the kit – no more, no less. Joyetech figured that it was time for some revolution in entry-level devices and released the Exceed D19 vape pen with two coil heads, adjustable airflow, and 510 connector. Boom!

Getting To Know the Joyetech Exceed D19

Joyetech Exceed D19 build

As for design, you won’t find anything outstanding here. Joyetech keeps on producing typical tube mods with a sleek, seamless look that represents an all-in-one concept. The range of mod colors is pretty basic – there’s a shiny, brushed stainless steel, black, white, dark orange, black-and-white gradient color options. I like that the unit is made of metal, instead of cheap plastic. And thanks to its size, you can literally hide the whole vape pen in the palm of your hand.

The Kit, as I already mentioned before, packs something more than a typical AIO vape pen. Let’s check it out.

The Little Joyetech Exceed D19 Box Includes
  • The Exceed D19 Mod Itself
  • Exceed D19 Tank With 510 Connector
  • 0.5 Ohm Coil Head (Direct-Lung Hits)
  • 1.2 Ohm Coil Head (Mouth-to-Lung Hits)
  • User Manual
  • Charging USB Cable
  • Warranty Card
  • Warnings Card
  • Spare O-Rings
  • Spare Tank Glass

I liked the fact that they give a choice of the vaping styles, meanwhile providing simplicity of the vape pen build. The Exceed D19 has two operating modes and only one button! You can see what mode you’re currently using with the help of an LED indicator ring underneath the tank. On the bottom of the device, you can see a venting hole for the battery, which ensures it won’t overheat. They also included a small chipset inside to protect the unit from overcharging (and exploding), over discharging, and overcurrent.

The Exceed D19 tank can contain 2 ml of an e-juice. Thanks to the medium holes in a coil head your e-liquid won’t run out too fast, meanwhile bringing more than satisfying vaping experience.

The firing button is nice and big enough. It protrudes a little bit of the surface. Along with the rubbery and durable coating, it feels quite clicky and easy to operate. There’s a USB port on the other side near the button. In my opinion, it would be more convenient to place it in the lower part of the mod, making sure that it won’t accidentally fall when charging.

The airflow valves have a unique design that I’ve never seen before. From one side they placed a steel lid with three holes, and on the other side of the circle, there’s an open lid, which you can turn and close to the preferred level. The holes section is designed for MTL vaping, and the more opened one – for the DL. Although, nothing can stop you from experimenting with those two. I’ve tried, and you can see what happened a section below.

How To Customize the Exceed D19

One of the main selling points of the Exceed D19 is the ability to swap two slightly different operating modes. What you can change is a voltage level and thus, have a more or less powerful vapor production. So, the options that you get:

  • constant voltage (orange light) fires up at the maximum voltage output, whenever you take a draw. When the battery discharges, your vape pen will suddenly turn off.
  • direct output (white light) functions as a typical mech mod; the voltage goes higher or lower according to the level of battery charge.

When the indicator LED ring starts to flash it means that the battery is slowly discharging. The faster it blinks – the more it is discharged.

Here are some other exciting features of the Exceed D19
  • 19 mm Width
  • 118 mm Height
  • 1500 mAh Battery
  • 73 g Weight
  • NiCr Coils
  • Coil Heads Compatible: EX Series
  • Up to 40 W Output (Full Charge in Direct Output) 0.2-3.5 Ohm Coil Resistance Limits

The pre-installed Exceed D19 tank has a top-filling system. With a special, donut-like holes, the e-juice refilling becomes the easiest thing to do. The drip tip screws on and unscrews easily. Although, it was a little disappointment for me that it was made of plastic. Good news is that I didn’t notice any leaking whatsoever. I walked around with an Exceed D19 in my pocket, in my bag, it was lying on its side on the table. No leaking at all!

It’s Time to Vape the Exceed D19

Joyetech Exceed D19 small size

I decided to start with a mouth-to-lung coil, which is designed with a 1.2 Ohm resistance. According to the official website of Joyetech, it works with an 8-14 wattage level and is best at 12W. I first thought it was a little bit too low for me, as I am used to much higher wattage settings. So I set the direct output mode to not overheat the coil and get the best of its capabilities.

So, on this mode, I didn’t get huge plumes of vapor. The draw was quite restricted, much like a cigarette draw. I liked that because of the throat hit it delivered. And the flavor was pretty fine, but not warm enough, to my taste. I think this coil is a good option for ex-smokers, certainly the ideal one for nicotine e-liquids best performance.

On the other side, you have a chance to try not the ex-smokers world, but a vaper’s world. This is a whole new territory for someone who’s been familiar with smoking for quite a bit of time. This is a different experience. When I put the DL 0.5 Ohm coil inside the Exceed tank, I didn’t expect much, to be honest. There are a lot of advanced vaping devices on the market, and usually, entry-level vape pens can’t compete with those. I switched to constant voltage mode and took a nice, very very long drag, inhaling it right into my lungs.

I must admit, that the draw was effortless, but still, just a little bit restricted to the acceptable point, making it easy to inhale loads of vapor. With a too wide mouthpiece and too airy draw of the SMOK Stick V8, for example, I couldn’t inhale a lot. And the vapor cloud was seriously huge. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of vapor. As for the taste, I found it tasty enough, but less than it was in an MTL hit. Probably, that was because the vapor passed all the taste buds in my mouth on its direct way to the lungs.

What’s the Competition

I already wrote about the SMOK Stick V8 up top, and there are also a few interesting details to mention. The V8 has a 3000 mAh battery, comparing to 1500 mAh of the Exceed. Meanwhile, the Exceed is smaller and stealthier. The Smok Stick V8 has all those fancy rainbow chromatic styles, which is less boring than the black-and-white world of the Joyetech. But given all that, I admire the Exceed D19 customization abilities more.

What Exceeds
  • Two coil heads for DL and MTL
  • Quality stainless steel build
  • Advanced battery protection
  • Easy operating
  • No leaking
  • Small size
  • Durable battery
  • Huge vapor
  • Great taste
What Doesn’t Exceed
  • Plastic drip tip with plastic threading
  • Little vapor production in the MTL mode

Do We Recommend It?

The Joyetech Exceed D19 is a bargain for someone who wants to start his vaping journey and try different vaping models. You buy one simple device, and you get much more than just a traditional AIO vape pen. You can instantaneously choose between small, intense hits and long, smooth ones. Even though, to do this, you’ll have to vape down all your e-juice left in the tank. The build is durable and smart. And all that beauty sells for nearly $30, which I think is awesome.
