Joyetech UNIMAX 25 Review Bottom Line
The latest vape pen to come out of the Joyetech camp is the Joyetech UNIMAX 25 and it's a beauty! The slick design and the huge 3000mAh battery make it a competitor as the best vape pen on the market right now. Ideal for those who don't want the fuzz of variable wattage and temperature control, but want a vape pen that performs as well, discrete enough to fit in your pocket and has the capacity to last all day. This vape pen is for you!
As part of Joyetech’s ongoing effort to maintain its status as one of the world’s premiere vaping companies, producing some of the best vape pens on the market, it is continually developing new products that push the technological and performance envelope. Its new Joyetech UNIMAX 25 offering is another step in that direction, offering a cutting-edge pen-style product that should have vaping enthusiasts cheering in their seats. That is if you can believe the hype that surrounds that product. In this Joyetech UNIMAX 25 starter kit review, we’ll examine the product to see if it can even begin to live up to our lofty expectations.
The UNIMAX 25 offers a streamlined appearance that makes it one of the sleeker, more portable devices I’ve seen in some time. Its outward appearance is elegant and fairly nondescript, but you can alter it with the provided stickers. There are various color themes from which to choose, and some of them have textures as well. It’s an interesting little feature that should appeal to anyone interested in customizing his or her device to match apparel, mood, or personal style.
The device has that TFTA system that you’ve probably already heard about. It’s top-fill and top-airflow, and it’s one of the main selling points for those who want maximum control over their device for sub-ohm vaping. The top-focused design helps to guard against leaks, since any airflow adjustments are done well above the juice, reducing the chances for any leakage. And, of course, vapers tend to prefer the top-fill option, as is usually makes for a less messy filling process.
The starter kit comes with a 3000mAh battery that takes up about two-thirds of the cylinder. It’s designed to provide just the output you need for your vaping sessions. The device’s tank should come as a pleasant surprise for many – especially if they’re buying products made for the European market. While many companies have begun to focus on limiting product tank sizes to the 2-ml required to meet EU guidelines, this Joyetech product ignores that tiny capacity and opts for a much larger 5 ml tank. Good for them. The smaller tank limitations don’t really accomplish anything, anyway – other than placing more burdens on companies and causing annoyance for vapers.
The testing reveals that this device can achieve 40 watts of power when you’re using a 0.5-ohm coil. The company notes that you can achieve output between the 20 to 40-watt range. The battery cell can handle resistance ranging from 0.15 to 3.5 ohms, of course, but you should shoot for that 0.5-ohm level. That’s where the magic happens especially if you’re looking to vaping to quit smoking. From a power standpoint, this is not the most powerful device we’ve ever seen – but there’s power and then there’s useful power. The larger question is whether the UNIMAX 25 can deliver enough power to provide the vaping experience its users are seeking.
On that front, there are no worries. While we didn’t manage to generate any room-filling clouds of vapor, we did achieve nice, the thick vapor that was filled with our e-juice flavor. More importantly, those results were consistent throughout several vaping sessions, with no overheating, dry hits, or other uncomfortable effects. That’s the type of power we like to see.
It’s also important to note that the device is designed to be compatible with a variety of coils, and has the standard 24 mm tank design so many users are already familiar with. It’s also compatible with any standard 510 drip tip so that you can change out the Delrin drip tip if you find it to be less than useful.
Finally, let’s not fail to note this little gem: the device is designed for direct-to lung inhalation. That’s critical to remember since you do want to evaluate it in terms of its intended use to ensure that your comparisons are accurate. In our opinion, it’s one of the top e-cigarettes for lung hits we’ve seen.
This device seems to have it all, especially when you consider that you can get the entire starter kit package for just under $40 online. So, is it worth it? Well, that depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a product that offers a safe and clean way to enjoy your vapor without the undue mess, then this could be the device you need. If you’re looking for another high-end, fully-customizable device that you can rebuild to your heart’s content, then look elsewhere. This device is clearly designed for vapers who want a high-capacity tank to provide them with hours of nonstop vaping pleasure.
Joyetech eGo One Mega V2 – If you like vape pens, then the eGo One Mega version 2 needs to be considered. Their 2nd version has improved flavor distribution and reduced the problems that the original had like leaking. The eGo One Mega is now without doubt one of the best on the market.
