Joyetech Cuboid 200 box mod
This week I am taking a look at the Joyetech Cuboid 200, a triple 18650 box mod with temperature control.
The Joyetech Cuboid 200 comes in a neat cardboard box with the device pictured on the cover.
After removing the top of the box we find our Joyetech Cuboid 200, nested in a foam insert.
The device reviewed is black, but the Joyetech Cuboid 200 is also available in grey or stainless steel.
Under the device we find our accessories.
These include the obligatory USB cable (for charging and firmware upgrades), a device protector, warranty and warning card and finally the user guide.
Here is the English section of the user guide (for those that like to try and read it from the pictures).
The guide also includes instructions in several other European languages.
And here we have our new Joyetech Cuboid 200.
And here it is inside its (included) protector. More of a bump guard than a cover.
Here on the top edge of one side is the fire button, a nice clicky button.
On the base we have the battery cover.
On the opposite top edge to the fire button we have the USB port.
The port can be used for charging, but Joyetech recommend charging them externally and only using the port for firmware updates.
On the top face, between the USB port and the display is the menu up and down rocker button.
Nice clicky motion.
The 510 is a neat stainless steel threaded socket, with a brass self adjusting positive pin.
Here is the complete top face, the menu button, screen and 510 socket.
Here we can see the base, with the battery cover.
The battery cover just slides off to the side to reveal the three battery compartments.
Both the device and the cover are clearly labelled with the battery orientation.
We can also see a few extra brass contacts. These allow for individual battery monitoring.
Here is the device with the three 18650s installed in the correct orientation.
With all the batteries installed we can see the device default display.
It is quite visible in the very bright photography lighting….
so, here it is in regular lighting.
You can see (from top down) the mode, current output (currently in temperature mode), coil ohms and output amps, puff counter, current set output power and battery monitors.
The device measures 22 x 63 x 99mm
It has variable watts output, variable temperature output for Ni, Ti, SS316and user set output modes.
It can be set for 1-200 watts. It also has a coil pre-heat feature (outputting a higher wattage for a short time).
Resistance range for temperature modes is 0.05-1.5 ohms, or 0.1-3.5 ohms in watts mode.
The Joyetech Cuboid 200 has reverse polarity protection, over-charging protection, over-current protection and over-discharge protection.
Let me start with price, Joyetech have yet to update their site with the suggested retail price for this product but I am seeing it online already for under $50.
For a triple battery, 200 watt, temperature controlled device this is an impressive price.
Joyetech make a good product with a high level of reliability and good build quality. For $50 there is little to dislike about this device.
The external finish is really nice and feels like it will last well, those worried about the coating failing (which they all do eventually) could always go for the stainless steel finish.
The buttons are nice, clicky and work well. No issues of concerns there.
The display could be a little brighter, but other than direct and bright sunlight it is fine.
I really like that each of the three batteries is monitored individually. There is a concern with lithium batteries that one could go low volts early and cause issues. With the individually monitoring of the Joyetech Cuboid 200 this will never be an issue.
The temperature controlled features are superb, no issues there.
The 510 has a stainless steel thread that wont wear quickly and a self adjusting positive pin so users don’t need to keep adjusting it.
I don’t tend to use pre-heat with temperature control, but in wattage mode I can see it having value.
The only real issue I had with the Joyetech Cuboid 200 was the battery cover. I found it can be a little fiddly to fit onto the device.
Best advice I can offer on this is to place the cover onto the device in the almost closed position and then slide the last 2-3mm to close and lock it.
All in all the Joyetech Cuboid 200 is a great device. Well done Joyetech.
