IJOY Avenger 270 Starter Kit Bottom Line
The first voice control vape mod to hit the market, the new IJOY Avenger 270 Mod Kit boasts wattage and light control by simply asking! A dual 20700 battery mod which produces some of the best airflow and tasty clouds thanks to the mesh coils this mod kit is going to be hard to beat. If you don't mind the slightly larger sized mods and the ability to adjust settings by voice, then your going to love this!
Vaping seems to be going from strength to strength and now IJoy are moving the bar somewhat higher with a brand new box mod with voice control. The Avenger 270 is a dual 20700 (or dual 18650 battery with the adaptor) battery 234W mod with a huge difference! So does this mod kit give the vapor everything they are looking for, or is it just a gimmick that’s more hassle than it’s worth? We take a closer look at the Avenger 270 to see if it competes with the best vape mods on the market.
Utilizing the traditional box mod look, the Avenger 270 measures in at 90mm in height and 50mm wide, making it a slightly larger mod than other dual 18650 mods, but this is a dual 20700 mod, which is larger, so no surprise there.
The mod is available in a whole host of colors including black, gold, blue, silver, green, purple, and two rainbow designs. It features a bright OLED 1.3” display on the front giving you all the information you need like wattage, voltage, puff counter and timer, coil resistance, strength, and dual battery indicators in the shape of a wheel with a cool looking car illustration to set the design off. Below the screen is the USB port.
The Avenger 270 has a large side fire button and to either side of the screen at the bottom is the up and down buttons should you need them.
When using the voice control, a microphone icon is displayed and a noise equalizer blinks showing you that the mod is listening.
The top of the mod features the 510 spring loaded connector, placed right in the center, which means it’s well balanced and you can use any other tank up to 30mm diameter without any overhang.
The bottom of the mod is where the battery door can be found and operated by simply sliding and opening. So all in all the design of this mod is not too dissimilar than some of the other best e-cigs we see in its class.
To switch the mod on you use the traditional 5 clicks of the fire button. Using the plus and minus button on either side of the screen you can immediately adjust the wattage without entering the menu area adjusting from 5W-234W.
3 clicks of the fire button enters the menu area, this is where you can select “P” or power, for power or wattage mode, “T” or temperature control where you can select the type of coil from Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel, or 2 memory settings. If you select one of the temperature control coils, you can then adjust the wattage using the up and down button. To adjust the temperature press the minus button and the temperature should blink, you can then adjust to fit your comfort. Note: To switch to Celsius, just go up to the maximum temperature of 600 degrees Fahrenheit and keep going, it will round robin and switch to Celsius!
The next menu options include customizing the color lights on the mod, including some preset colors which adjust the lights to music or the sound of your voice! You can also adjust the vape strength from normal, hard (30% higher), soft (20% lower) and also user where you can customize the first 3 seconds of each puff.
It also has TCR which is temperature coefficient of resistance which you can tweak if you’re in temperature control. The last area of the menu is the settings area where you can reset the puff counter, adjust the screen on time, and also turn off the voice control.
With the voice control setting on there are a number of things you can adjust on the Avenger 270 mod simply by speaking to it. To enable the listening mod, say “hello, iJoy”, followed by any of the following commands:
You can buy the IJOY Avenger 270 Voice Control mod as a Starter Kit, meaning you get the Avenger Sub-Ohm tank which features a 25mm diameter tank holding 4.7mm of juice.
It is a top fill device which is accessed via the screw thread cap on top of the tank and has 2 large filling holes to allow the air to escape without any spillage.
You also get 2 coils with the starter kit which include the X3-Mesh Coil which is a 0.15ohm coil and best ran at around 40-90Watts, and an X3-C1S Coil which is a standard 0.35 sub ohm coil best ran between 40-80Watts. Overall the tank is a pretty good option and could be placed in the top 5 sub ohm tanks, one slight quibble is the slight color difference from the mod, but it’s hardly noticeable.
First off we’re using the X3-Mesh Coil at 80W with the airflow fully open. The airflow is just awesome on this tank, it produces so much flavorful vape clouds! Mesh coils are known to produce better flavors and the Avenger doesn’t disappoint!
The response levels of the IJOY Avenger 270 mod are also really good, easily meeting the needs of this airy tank. Adjusting the vape levels to custom and making the power slightly higher for the first few seconds really helps bring the most out of this starter kit.
Using the X3-C1S Coil also produces a great vape, but the noise of the coil is significantly quieter because of the reduced airflow.
The IJOY Avenger 270 starter kit is one great performing mod kit, no doubt about it. Probably not ideal for any new vaper looking at vaping to quit smoking as it may be a little on the complex side to master. The voice control seems really cool at first, especially adjusting the wattage up and down, and the screen colors, but after a few days of use it becomes a little redundant as it’s rare to adjust the colors and it’s easier to use the up and down buttons to adjust the wattage!
The size of the mod is a little larger than other dual battery mods, but, to its advantage, this mod holds 2×20700 batteries, so it’s one of the longer lasting vape mods out there!
