Joyetech eVic VTwo
This week (after a couple of weeks away due to illness, sorry for the lack of updates) I am taking a look at the Joyetech eVic VTwo, the second version of the Joyetech eVic VT device.
The Joyetech eVic VTwo comes in the now familiar cardboard box, a picture of the device on the front.
Inside we find our new device, nested in a protective foam cradle. Mine is one of the new colours, burgundy which frankly is stunning and the picture doesn’t do it justice.
The original 3 ‘racing’ colours from the original eVic VT are still there, Racing Yellow/Cool Black/Dazzling White but there are now options for Burgundy, Black, Orange, Blue and White.
You also get your documentation, a warranty card and a fairly comprehensive user guide.
The only other extras in the box are a USB lead for charging the device and upgrading the firmware and a protective silicon (condom) case.
The case is neither pretty nor does it let you show off the colour of the device you bought, it does however do a great job of protecting the paintwork.
Externally the Joyetech eVic VTwo (colour aside) looks exactly the same as its predecessor. Dimensions and layout have not changed.
Self adjusting sprung positive 510 pin in brass, inside a stainless steel thread.
The same plastic ‘jog wheel’ menu control on the top next to the 510 socket.
Huge display and fire button down one side.
Micro USB port at the top of one face, for charging the internal battery and firmware updating.
Logos on this red model are there but nicely understated.
In fact the whole design is neat and tidy with only functional items breaking a subtle design.
Plenty of venting in the base.
Under the very bright studio lights I use for these photos you can still read the display.
But in normal lighting the display is much brighter.
There are several display modes on this version, there is a neat clock ‘screensaver’ mode as well as the vaping display.
The vaping display carries all the information you could need on a device like this.
So, a few specs. and features…
The device measures 46 x 25.5 x 85.6mm and weighs 235grams
It has a non-replaceable 5000mAh internal battery.
Output power is 1 to 80 watts
Temperature control can be used with nickel, titanium and stainless steel (316) with temperature ranges allowed between 100 and 315 degree Celsius (200-600 Fahrenheit).
The is also a TCR mode where owners can set their own temperature value for other metals such as 304ss and NiCr.
Resistance range is 0.15 to 3.5 ohms in watts mode and 0.05 to 1.5ohms in temperature modes.
The device has 3 user memories and can even be used in bypass mode.
Usual safety features (10 second vape timer, battery protections, overheat protections, short-circuit and out of range resistance protections).
This device is a great product but some people, myself included, prefer a replaceable battery and a smaller device.
Something like Joyetech did with the eVic Mini.
And they have done again with the Joyetech eVic VTwo Mini.
Similar box to its big brother.
With the device nested in foam again.
Same package contents of user guide, warranty card, USB lead and device protector.
Same brass positive 510 pin in stainless steel threaded socket.
Same big display and fire button.
But this time with (in my case a much preferred) up down menu control format below the display, and the USB port below them.
The battery is replaceable in the Mini, with a rechargeable 18650 cell.
The cover has a pair of neodymium magnets that hold the cover very securely, and a pull ribbon to remove the battery.
One battery terminal is fixed, the other is sprung to keep the 18650 nice and snug in place.
The Joyetech eVic VTwo Mini measures 22.2 x 38.2 x 82 mm and weighs 120grams (but remember thats without a battery)
in terms of specs. and features is is near identical to the Joyetech eVic VTwo with the one exception that max. power is a little lower at 75 watts.
I like the Joyetech eVic VTwo, I have always liked the eVic series in general. It was 3 years ago with the first eVic (tube) mod that I finally gave up smoking for good, it has to hold a special place in my heart for that.
It has a huge power source that will last anyone the day for any regular vaping activity, probably last even a cloud-chaser the day to be honest.
Size and style wise it has little that I could critic, weigh is also fantasic for a 5000mAh device.
The only thing that might annoy some is the menu system, or more so the jog wheel control of it. It is not that it is bad, just it can be frustrating sometimes. A jog in one direction changes selected item, in the other direction changes the value. This means that you can only adjust values up (as down changes selected item).
Fortunately it is mostly features that are changed this way and the main value (either watts in power mode or temperature in TC modes) is changed in both up and down values by the jog wheel.
Overall I like the device and use it when I go out for a long day with friends, needing a single device with a huge power lifespan before charges.
The new single colours are stunning, the red especially so.
Then there is the new mini version of the Joyetech eVic VTwo. This solves the jog wheel issue for those that it bothers. It doesn’t even really hit the specs. of the device in doing so, with just 5 watts less ouput and all the same features.
For the same day out I mentions a second ago I would need to carry a spare battery in my pocket to get the same duration vaping. It is smaller and that is important to some.
With either device I think most vapers would be happy and they would certainly have a reliable device (even my first gen eVic, the supposedly delicate one, stil works fine).
Prices for these devices is listed as $95 for the VTwo and $65 for the VTwo Mini, as always I suggest you shop around for the best prices in your region.
