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
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.
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.
