iJoy Maxo Quad 18650 Box Mod Preview

The iJoy Maxo aims to supplant the Wismec Reuleaux as the most popular high-powered, but inexpensive, mod by using the clever strategy of adding a battery. While triple-18650 mods became popular at the end of 2015 and throughout 2016, the iJoy Maxo hopes to usher in the era of affordable quadruple-18650 mods. That’s right, the device is a quad-battery temperature-control variable-wattage box-mod. Although it’s a beast in terms of power and features, the form factor is reasonable for a box mod that sports four batteries. Here’s a closer look.

In many ways, the iJoy Maxo reminds me of another product in the company’s lineup — the iJoy Limitless LUX. Similar to that dual-26650 box-mod, this quadruple-18650 box-mod is smaller and more ergonomic than I expected it to be. Both devices are powered by Iwepal chips. While I haven’t used all of the chip’s features, I’ve been impressed by what I have used. It provides smooth performance with a broad array of features. While it’s not going to make Evolv or YiHi sweat, the Iwepal chip delivers nicely for the price.

The iJoy Maxo uses sticker panels for customization. The primary color can be complemented by secondary colors, some of which have different textures. The iJoy website shows stickers in leather, carbon fiber, and plastic finishes.

While 315 watts is overkill for many vapers, myself included, I’m looking forward to trying out the iJoy Maxo. I like its ergonomics. I’m certain that I’ll enjoy the heft a quadruple-18650 mod provides. And in my limited experience with the Iwepal chip, I’m satisfied by what it offers.

How about you guys and gals? Any of you looking forward to checking out the iJoy Maxo? Do you think a quadruple-18650 mod is something the market wants? Will vaping become like the razor market with different companies releasing a “plus one” model every year? If you’d like to see more of the iJoy Maxo, check out the image gallery below.

    While 4 18650 sport a lof od mAh I see nothing else appealing on the mod. On the contrary design is in my eyes awfull. Reminds me on late 80s japanese sport cars. All edgy. No style. But it will find it’s customers, truckers that can use a lot of battery power and those who collect mods or those just want to light up 8uple caterpillar coils on newest mutation X v6 XXL.

    • The design isn’t that different from current triple-18650 mods. The ones from Wismec, Sigelei, etc. all have a similar shape. The only one that’s distinct (that I’ve seen anyway) is Council of Vapor’s.

        Yes indeed they all share this prismatic shape but if I may say the Wismec design I find appeling. Or the Lost Vape Triade.

    yeah apparently smoke is releasing the power engine which is also a quad battery mod but this time with 400watts….

    Me? I’m stoked about the Maxo Quad. I found this conversation while looking for a shoot-out between the Maxo Quad and the Smok Power Engine (to no avail). I’m leaning towards the Maxo Quad primarily due to the fact that the reputation surrounding Smok’s mod’s, though improving, is questionable. I still have never met anyone who would actually USE 300 – 400 watts… but, as mentioned, the increased mah’s are appealing as all hell! I can burn through a Reuleaux in less than a waking day. I’d like to think I could make it from sun up to sun down with one of these. Also… I’m 6’4″ & 325lbs. I like things big. In fact… If any of you guys know of a tank that performs like the TFV8, but can hold 10< mls of juice… I'd like to hear about it. Frankly, I'm mystified as to why the market is flooded with 2 – 5 ml tanks. I personally would love to see tanks that would hold 15 – 30 ml. the TFV8 has a 6 ml tank on it, & I can't even make it through a movie without needing to refill!
