iJoy TSS Coil Preview

The trend of pre-made Notch-style coils continues with the iJoy TSS.

Barrel Coils Are Coming!

The iJoy TSS coil is a convenient pre-made coil that will initially launch with the iJoy Tornado RTA (that I wrote about last week). While the coils will debut with the Tornado tank, expect them to be available separately shortly after the launch of the Tornado RTA. Similar to the Notch Coil by Wismec, the iJoy TSS offers the surface area of a Clapton coil, the fast ramp-up time of a traditional coil, and the convenience of a pre-made coil. Here’s a quick look at the iJoy TSS.

iJoy TSS Tease

The main “barrel” section of the iJoy TSS is made out of stainless steel. The legs of the coil are made out of nickel. This setup allows the coil to operate in temperature control mode, as well as standard wattage mode.

The iJoy TSS will be available in two sizes. The 5mm diameter coil will work great in atomizers with ample decks, like the iJoy Tornado. For atomizers with smaller decks or for vapers that want to use multiple coils in their atomizers, a 3.5mm version will be available too. The latter version also answers a concern some vapers had with the Notch Coil — that the atypically large diameter (of the model announced) would be too large to work with in certain atomizers.

A Welcomed Trend

I’m digging the trend of Notch-style pre-made coils like the iJoy TSS. The blend of flavor, convenience, and surface area looks fantastic to me. That said, both coils use nickel legs and I wish they didn’t. I’m sure there’s a technical reason for it that’s beyond my understanding, but vaping with nickel — even a minimal amount as featured in the iJoy TSS — make me uncomfortable.

Hopefully future version of the iJoy TSS will be entirely stainless steel. On paper, the form factor is tremendous and offers vapers — particularly those that don’t make their own coils — a superior vaping experience. I can’t wait to try out the iJoy TSS, both with the Tornado RTA and in my arsenal of drippers. Until the coil lands, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the iJoy TSS.

    Depending on the price, availability and performance, I am optimistic about this direction!

  • Collar City Clouds

    This seems to be a good direction for massed produced coils to be manufactured via laser cutting machines that can pump them out pretty quickly. I think the trend will stick and we will see more designed based cuts occurring within the notches themselves. I believe they should and will directed to new vapors who wan’t to experience an RDA/RTA without the fuss of building or selecting type of coil to use. They will also be for those on the go vapors who want connivence and good performance. I agree with the stipulation of the nickel leads being used, possibly SS/Ti didn’t perform as well or at all. But I hope a reasoning for this decision can be released explaining the functionality.

    • Excellent points. I do wonder why an all-SS coil wasn’t used and have a few feelers out.

      • Ryan

        the reason being nickel is lower resistance than stainless steel. it allows the lions share of the heat to be focused on the coil part itself

        • Ryan

          my concern with these for temp control will be how much resistance change will the legs cause which may affect the overall resistance of the coil. this could drastically affect its performance in temp control

          • That’s one of my concerns as well. I don’t know how mixed metals will work with TC accuracy.

          • Emil

            TC work good with this coil on ss mode but if you leave long NI wires to rebuild Melo 3 coil or other vertical coil then must change TCR up a litle.

    only thing I dont really like is how can you make your own? probably cant..But i definitely want the Tornado with both the T4 and T6 base…Looks great for wrapping your own pieces of usable artistic coils!!

    I tried demonkiller notchcoils. They are a beast. Provides more vape than 4 claptons ss316l on tornado rdta
