iJoy Tornado Warning

The iJoy Tornado is an upcoming rebuildable tank atomizer (RTA) that’s being made with advanced vapers in mind. The company already has strong vaping tanks, such as the Reaper Plus and Goodger, geared towards mainstream vapers. From what I’ve seen of the iJoy Tornado, its feature set is tailor made for enthusiast vapers that love complex builds and extreme wattages. In fact, it’s the only RTA I’ve heard that can handle up to six coils and 300 watts. Here’s an exclusive sneak peak at the iJoy Tornado.

F5 Specs Incoming!

Before I get into more details and give you some impressions of the iJoy Tornado, it’s time to bombard you with specs.

  • 24mm atomizer diameter
  • 17.8mm deck diameter
  • 5.0ml tank capacity
  • Direct-to-contact 24K-plated 510 connection
  • Wide bore Delrin drip tip
  • Slide-and-lock gasket for top-side refilling
  • PEEK insulator
  • Four-hole and six-hole decks included

In case you didn’t get the header reference about F5, I wasn’t talking about the button you constantly press when you’re seconds away from buying rare vape gear that has a timed launch. I was talking about the Fujita scale. With that in mind, the heading of this section in relation to the iJoy Tornado is frickin’ hilarious (in my head).

Prepare For Trouble…And Make it Double

iJoy Tornado Builds

The most notable feature of the iJoy Tornado is its twin decks. A deck width of 17.8mm is unusually (and awesomely) large for an RTA. Experienced vapers that are accustomed to building on rebuildable dripping atomizers (RDA) sometimes have difficulty building on the diminutive decks most RTAs have. That won’t be an issue with the iJoy Tornado. Its ample building space should make it one of the easiest tanks to build for.

While the iJoy Tornado has a four-hole Velocity-style deck that’s found in a large number of vaping products, it also has an atypical six-hole Velocity-style deck. The former is a tried-and-true solution that’s well established, while the latter is bursting with possibilities. Obviously, a six-hole deck will allow for crazy low-ohm builds, but it also has a ton of potential for vapers that like to create ornate builds or indulge in coil art. While I would hardly call a six-hole deck a necessity, it’s cool to see that the iJoy Tornado will appeal to a subset of vapers that are largely ignored by RTA manufacturers.

And this section heading is the first of what I hope will be many Pokemon references. Those games rule.

Aunt EM, It’s a Twister!

According to the manufacturer, the iJoy Tornado can handle up to 300 watts. While I can’t imagine a human enjoyably vaping at that wattage, it’s interesting to see a vaping company push the envelope. Similar to the tech industry, vaping is a spec-heavy business. I’m sure some vaper will try the iJoy Tornado at 300 watts and I’m fairly certain he or she will get it to work. While it’s excessive, the point is that this RTA can handle power that most its competitors can’t touch, if the rating is accurate.

(On a side note, how fun would it be to watch iJoy employees testing the wattage limits of the company’s products? I feel bad for the poor sap that vaped the iJoy Tornado at 350 watts, passed out, and later told his bosses, “We better leave it at 300….”)

A reason for the iJoy Tornado’s extreme wattage handling and coil capacity is that it was designed by AW in California. If you’re not familiar with the California vape scene, clouds are king. The state has some of the fiercest cloud blowers and most amazing cloud competitions in the world. On a larger scale, the iJoy Tornado is another interesting East-West collaboration, just like the Sigelei 213 I recently played with.

Lastly, this section heading was not a reference to The Wizard of Oz, but a reference to the outstanding Airplane! parody.

iJoy Tornado Watch

While there are a number of great RTAs on the market, I haven’t heard of one more geared towards extreme vaping than the iJoy Tornado. This vaping product is full of wicked potential, both in terms of pure power and complex coil work. Certainly intermediate vapers will be able to use and enjoy this product, but it seems squarely aimed at advanced vapers. If you’ve always envied the convenience of an RTA, but have been unsatisfied by the customary build and power limitations then the iJoy Tornado could be the tank of your dreams.

I’d love to hear what you think of the iJoy Tornado. What would you do with a six-hole build deck? How far would you push the wattage on this bad boy? Kindly share your thoughts in the comments section.

      • Elliott Nunez

        Yeah I did order one from Gearbest .It even seems they have them in stock…The only bad thing is the T6 deck doesnt come with it,,That’s what I really wanted to check out..As far as I can tell you can’t get the T6 yet…not even pre order..

        • Darren Bentley

          Its in there now i have irdered both ,but you wull probably have it now since your post was 4mths ago

          • Elliott Nunez

            D.B. Thanks for the heads up! But yup bought another tank and an extra base so now i have 2 tornadoes one with a t4 base one witha t6 and an extra t6 base..and I dont even use em cause they leak like a sieve..I know its because of the way im wicking them. Im sure ill mess with em again in the future..but for now i keep buying other tanks and rdas, rdtas etc…ill use them eventually..next rda im gonna get is the modfather and the goon..this week lol. Next week probably a touch screen mod..Whatever money Im saving on not smoking Im spending on vape shit..At least vape devices last so ill have something to show for my money..Not going up in smoke like cigs do!! Then empty the ashtray and all that money spent is gone..poof up in smoke!

          • Darren Bentley

            I read a lot complaining about leaking with them have to be heavy with cotton

            I joy limitless on other hand don’t leak an dam great vape ,. Got both an the limitless rdta plus

          • Darren Bentley

            I found the limitless rdta plus to be fantastic rdta by ijoy , ive not tried the tornado yet , but will be sure to add extra cotton in it whilst wicking, I liked the limitless that much  ive ordered another one , so thats on its way with the tornado rta an the six coil building deck too ,can add them to my collection as im stock piling for EU TDP when these could most likely get banned from sale or not i will have enough to tide me over ,  but my next buy will be a 30mm rta possibly be  mod father im awaiting them to come back in uk stocks , but dam thats going to run over 100gbp if i buy both extra build decks postless an series deck an two sizes glass an chims as they 14.99 each so that 60quid just to get the extras an its either mod father or one of the other 30mm rtas but the mod offer the kits to make bigger or smaller an a choice of 3 build decks is appealing especially being nice larger areas could fit notch coils in there im hoping, plus its fed from under the deck too its a better version aromisers tanks , with out a juice flow control ,

          • Darren Bentley

            Im wanting the mod father too its just a massive oversized ud bellus from what ive seen , so i love my bellus stil keep coming back to it , thought about the goon too but will probably get a clone insted , i use a dentist tool an spred my cotton out then push some into the holes on the chamber , an wow it worked second time ,didnt even need to rewick it , an not one drop even if i blow vapes bsck down through the rta an out of the air in take it dont leak, im seriously impressed by this rta tronado , i guess i will have the same problem s when i do come to wick it again , but dams its that good of am rta once you do get it right ,leave cotton longer , then stuff into chamber when screwing it back on works for me an others ,
            I think i would persist with it now that i know what its like when it works ,
            Its my new favourite rta tank , for my sugar cookies mix clone of moon sugar its very nice an sweet indeed , an really can chuck it out only downside is is it needs filling 4 times a day, once you get the wicking down , , i will have this trouble again i know i will , but it is well worth while,

    My tornado just arrived in the mail earlier today, only the t4 deck though. I’ll probably end up getting the t6 deck to play around on.
    I slapped on a couple hive coils (right at .2 ohms) at 85w and I’m blowing some pretty impressive clouds! It’s been a few hours and I have to say if it keeps up, this IS the best tank by far, that I’ve ever vaped.
