IJOY Diamond VPC Bottom Line
Nice to see IJOY release the Diamond VPC pod mod with a pretty decent 1400mAh battery capable of adjustable wattage and voltage. One big pro with this is the capability of using Juul, Myle, and Juno pods but, and there is a but! The Unipod tank that comes with this kit is just below par. It rattles and the flavor is not as good as others on the market.
Ijoy has now released a new looking pod system, yes it is a pod although looking like a tiny box mod! The interesting thing about this device is the ability to use a whole host of other manufacturer’s pods, including Juul, Myle, and Juno. But of course, they have their own pod tank included in the kit.
So how does this rather large vape pod, yet small box mod compare with others on the market? Only one way to see!
Let’s get to it!
One thing you notice straight away is the size of this pod, it’s designed in a similar fashion to box mods, in fact, Ijoy is calling it a ‘box pod’! Measuring just 100mm tall with the tank on, 34mm wide and having a depth of just over 27mm, this thing is small!
The Diamond VPC kit comes in a number of colors which include red, blue, green, black, white, rainbow, gold, purple, orange, and the list goes on and on, 12 colors in all!
It has a nice diamond styling on the front and back, and on the side is the fire button, screen, and adjustment buttons.
Do you need a better understanding of Vape Pods and the other types of e-cigs?
This mod has a screwed in 20350 battery inside with the capacity of 1400mAh which is pretty impressive for its size, and for these small tanks should last a day or two. Depending on how often you use it of course!
The pod mod is capable of firing between 2.5V – 3.8V for pods and 5W – 45W for standard coils.
As this is a pod, Ijoy has tried to keep things simple with just a few settings to play around within the menu area.
To enter the settings, click the fire button 3 times. You can then scroll through the options using the adjustment buttons below the screen.
Ijoy has included their own pod as part of the Diamond VPC Kit, named the Unipod. It holds 2ml of e-liquid, which sounds small for a tank, but for a pod that’s actually pretty good. The power is lower and the resistance is higher on pods, so the juice lasts longer. It is also compatible with nicotine salts if that’s your thing!
It comes with a built-in atomizer/coil of 1-ohm and no airflow control.
You can use this tank in power/wattage mode, so you can use it on other mods, just make sure you stick to power outputs of between 10-15W or you’ll burn that coil out!
To start with we’re using Ijoy’s UniPod tank at 3.8V and testing it with a 70/30 VG/PG e-liquid. The draw is a little tight if your use to direct lung inhales, it is possible but definitely resistant. You can start tasting the flavor of the e-liquid, it’s pretty smooth, but the cloud quantity and lung hit is pretty week.
Switching over to the Juul Pod and changing the mode accordingly creates a good strong vape similar to a Juul when it’s first charged. The beauty is the battery lasts!
We’re a little undecided on the Pod Mod, on one hand, it can be used with Juul and other pods giving them a larger and more stable battery life. But on the other hand, the UniPod tank left us a little underwhelmed.
To be honest, in comparison to the best e-cigarettes on the market, this device is a little below average, and overpriced.
We’re not sure why they built in the 20350 battery, you have to unscrew the case to remove and switch it over. The build quality is superb, it looks good and all the features are relatively easy to find and use.
Overall we love the fact that you can use the Ijoy Diamond VPC mod with Juul and other pods improving the battery life and performance. With the Unipod tank though, you may be left wanting more.
