Dual 26650, Unique Design

The first time I saw the iJoy Limitless LUX, I was enamored with the box mod’s boldness. It’s big and powerful, but also functional and unique. This was back at VPX Las Vegas at the iJoy Limitless booth, where I was shown a prototype of the device that would eventually become the LUX. I’ve been anxious to write about it ever since and was thrilled to get the green light from iJoy. Keep reading for more details on this uniquely powerful box mod.

iJoy Limitless LUX Stands Alone

The most obviously unique aspect of the iJoy Limitless LUX is its use of dual 26650 batteries. (You can use twin 18650 batteries with the included adapters, but that’s not the point of this box mod.) iJoy claims that this solution offers better battery life than the triple-18650 batteries on the market. Since high-powered triple-18650 mods like the Reuleaux run batteries in series and a quality 26650 cell has more capacity than a comparable 18650 cell (think Basen Black 26650 vs. LG HG2), that’s a reasonable claim.

Another potential advantage of using dual-26650 batteries is that the form factor will be familiar to most vapers. While I like the triangular shape of the Reuleaux and am intrigued by the asymmetric shape of the Council of Vapor Tempest, some vapers find these form factors unusual or uncomfortable. By comparison, the LUX should feel familiar.

The end result is a box mod that offers long battery, a feature set that will satisfy most vapers, and unique customization opportunities.

While the iJoy Limitless LUX appears to be a fairly standard box mod from the outside looking in, its design is unique. The main chassis houses the electronics and holds the batteries, while the shell provides protection and customization. To change batteries, you simply pull off the shell and snap it back on when they’re replaced. When I was shown the prototype LUX, I was impressed with how easily everything snapped together. As a big fan of accessorizing, I’m looking forward to seeing the various shells released for the mod. It would be killer if Limitless provided a way to make custom shells. (In which case, I would immediately put my face on one.)

Naturally, using two 26650 batteries makes the mod bigger than most dual-18650 boxes, but the iJoy Limitless LUX is smaller than I thought a dual-26650 mod would be. My hands are slightly on the small side and I found the box comfortable to hold. The end result is a box mod that offers long battery, a feature set that will satisfy most vapers, and unique customization opportunities.

A Singular Box Mod

Between its use of dual-26650 batteries and its distinct chassis system, I haven’t seen a box mod quite like the iJoy Limitless LUX. While I have no idea how accurate and capable the IWEPAL chip performs, I’m quite taken with its bold and striking design. What do you think of the latest collaborative vaping product from iJoy and Limitless? Any interest in a dual-26650 mod? What kind of shell would you want for this device? Please leave a comment and let me know.

    Beware, the Realux RX200S has 3 batteries in series. So the amount of mAh is not triplicated. The only parameter that is triplicated is the output voltage, ampere and capacity are the same of one batterie.

    • You’re absolutely correct. I shall update.

    • KillingTime

      True, having more cells in series doesn’t increase the total mAh of the combined battery of cells, but it does increase the watt hours, which is the real measure of a battery’s capacity:

      3 x 3000 mAh @12.6 V (eg. LG HG2) = 37.8 Wh

      2 x 4200 mAh @8.4 V (iJoy 26650) = 35.28 Wh

      It’s a narrow win for the triple 18650 setup assuming you’re using 3000 mAh cells, which are pretty commonplace. If you decide not to use the 4200 mAh cells that iJoy provide, and instead use Basen Blacks which have 4500 mAh, then the numbers come out the same as 3 x LG HG2 – 37.8 Wh.

    Ray,

    The only 26650 mod I have is the Centurion. I’m not impressed. From my limited experience, the chemistry of the 26650s seems no better than 18650s. The mAh ratings seem very exaggerated, unlike the better 18650s. I presume that to be a problem of scale. Fewer products that use the 26650 means less R&D to improve those batteries.

    • There are a lot of bad batteries with exaggerated specs in general. For 26650, I very much like the Basen Black. The performance is on par with a top 18650 and the capacity is certainly higher.

    this or the limitless box mod?

    • I would vote for this. I like the design better.

  • Dillema

    I cant decide whether should i buy this limitless lux or wismec reuleaux 2/3.. can u guys please help me? Which one is better?
