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.
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?
