IJOY MAXO V12 review | Firing on all cylinders

Today we have a look at the MAXO V12 by IJOY to find out if it is a true cloud killer.



Ok, so I just reviewed the Eleaf Melo 300 and the IJOY MAXO V12 is another high-wattage “super-tank”, if you will. Honestly, this whole high-wattage thing is not for me, although I love my RX300 (battery life for days). Anyways, here we go with another one for you cloud chuckers…

IJOY has been on a roll lately so I’m pretty confident that this is going to be a quality product. I am very curious how it is going to compete with the MELO 300 and especially the SMOK TV12. I have not got my hands on a Cloud Beast King yet, but I guess now I feel like it is my destiny….

$27.99 using the code “V12” at purchase through Efun.top for a limited time.

Notable Remarks


Wow this thing is huge, and it weighs a ton. With a 28mm in diameter body, this is by far the biggest tank I have ever owned. The steel X design looks great, and overall it is just very aesthetically pleasing. The IJOY MAXO V12 is one geared towards the cloud crowd.



All I’m going to say is, give this tank a rinse before using. I was having some issues with a funky taste which was probably machine oil. I wonder what the VG/PG ratio was on that. Anyways, I got this thing cranking out clouds using one of the premade coil heads and all I can say is, wow!

The MAXO V12 chucks massive clouds, the flavor is great (once you give it a good rinse) and the airflow is huge! I would compare the flavor to a TFV8, possibly better, not quite as good as a dripper but pretty damn close! I am very curious how this is going to compare to the TFV12…

The RBA section is a three-post, velocity-style deck designed for triple or sextuple coils. There are also a variety of other coils available and an included adapter for existing IJOY coils


  • Huge airflow
  • Sturdy
  • Cool design
  • RBA section included
  • Spare glass/goodies
  • Good flavor


  • Gets hot quick
  • Heavy
  • Top-flip system is hard to use at first


If this is your style of vaping, then I think we may have a winner. I have yet to try out the TFV12, but I am going to be comparing it to the MAXO V12 and Eleaf MELO 300. These are the future of tanks for vapers who want to “kick it up a notch”.

I had a lot of trouble getting the top-fill section open, to be honest. After trying to pry it open, and causing some scratches to the tank, I decided to go on YouTube. Fortunately Twisted420 shows us how to open it the right way, which is by pushing the part in the back with the spring forward.

It was very frustrating at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s not that bad. The Eleaf Melo 300 was a little bit better in terms of ease of use and being messy. I am very curious as to how the TFV12’s top-flip system will be. What are your thoughts? Leave us a comment below….

    Wow. Coming from a guy who’s “committed to providing high quality reviews”, this is the single most abbreviated, uninformative review I have ever seen. Since this “whole high wattage thing is not for you” as you stated… maybe these “super tanks” should be reviewed by somebody who IS into them. There’s nothing about performances at various wattages. Nothing about airflow. Nothing about juice consumption. Nothing about flavor to cloud ratio. Hell… you didn’t even know the VG/PG ratio of the juice you used in it! Absolute waste of time and space.

      To be fair he was joking about the VG/PG ratio of the machining oil it looked like. And a lot of the youtube reviewers aren’t into this either. But they have to review them. Mike Vapes said he likes to vape in the 60-90 watt range. But you know what? He still reviews it. As with the others. If you are a reviewer, you gotta review the products that you are given and give YOUR thoughts on them.

        Thanks for getting my joke, and appreciating what we do. Vape on!
