Joyetech Espion Starter Kit Review Bottom Line
Not only does the new Joyetech ESPION and ProCore X tank look great but it also performs really well too. The new vape mod from Joyetech has been a long time coming, but they have made no mistakes with this masterpiece! The ProCore X tank performs near on identically as the SMOK TFV8 and the dual 18650, 200W mod is simple to use and well designed. Just awesome!
Joyetech has released some really good mod kits in the past, but of late they seem to have relatively quiet. So how does their new Joyetech ESPION 200W mod compare with the best vape mods and how good is the kit complete with the ProCore X tank? Well, let’s take a close look to see.
Apparently, they have gone with a business style, whatever that means! But what we do know is you get a rather classical designed mod with a 1.45” rather large adjustable color TFT display with a standard interface making it easy to use.
It is a dual 18650 batter mod capable of managing up to 200W which should see most vapers happy and with a variety of color option, if you like the design, you’ll find one you like!
The ProCore X tank has been placed in the dead center of the mod, making it very balanced in the hand, with a large firing button to the side, and adjustment buttons under the display. Overall we kind of liked the design, it seemed to sense some form of quality and class which is always a good thing!
Clicking the fire button 3 times accesses the menu where you can adjust all the familiar settings such as wattage mode, temperature mode, coil type etc. Including a specific area where you can lock in the coils resistance and make fine-tuned adjustments if required.
The display gives you all the information you need such as individual battery indicators, wattage/temp, coil resistance, and amperage along with a nice large clock with a date that changes to wattage indicator when making adjustments or firing the mod.
The ProCore X tank comes with a number of atomizer heads you can choose from, but within the kit, you only get the 0.4-ohm ProC1 and the 0.25-ohm ProC1-S, which are 2 of the most popular resistance. You can also purchase a 0.15 dual coil, 0.2 tri-coil, and 0.15 quad coil head, so plenty to choose from if you don’t like the standard coils.
The tank is top filled via a slide a hinge top cap which reveals 2 holes, which is always good as you want one hole to allow the air to escape whilst filling. It also features dual adjustable air flow controls at the base of the tank.
There are 2 versions available of this tank, one at 2ml capacity to meet with EU TPD regulations and the standard 4.5ml capacity tank for the rest of the world! Does all this make it one of the best sub-ohm tanks on the market, well actually it’s pretty close to the SMOK TFV8 Tank, so yeah it does!
The flavor and taste of this mod kit are pretty good really and very close if not the same as the Smok as we previously said. Obviously, this is all reliant on the ProCore X tank. With the huge amount of coils available it makes it pretty compatible with most vapers, although as all the resistances are below 1-ohm, someone looking at e-cigs to quit smoking may find this a little hard to get used to, at least to start with.
As for the vape mod itself, well as it’s easy to use and a good looking mod it performs really well so no real complaints. Some people have complained about the delay after the device is asleep for a while and your first vape. We didn’t really experience this so it may be just the real early releases.
Basically, if you’re looking for one of the best-vaping devices, then the Espion mod kit will not let you down!
The Joyetech ESPION kit is the best kit, in our opinion, that Joyetech has released to date, so well done Joyetech. The tank is awesome and as good as SMOK’s, the device is so simple to use and the device performs to a really high standard. All in all, this is a great vape mod that will suit most vapers.
