Joyetech Cubis Intro
By several professional reviewers (and by Joyetech), the Cubis Tank has been referred to as “innovative” and “leak-free”. One video-review in particular totally sold me on this tank, so I had no hesitation with buying it!
But is this innovation amounting to better performance than what we are accustomed to?? Is the Joyetech Cubis going to make your eliquid shine, just because it is leak-free and innovative?
Here’s a quick look into my experience with the performance of the Cubis tank by Joyetech. This is not a ‘full’ review of the ins and outs of the tank, it’s merely about how it performed when I used it. This will be short and sweet.

- Comes with three coil heads of separate resistances
- Can use the SS coils in temp or power mode (as long as your mod is set up for SS)
- Easy as hell to fill due to it’s top-fill, “innovative cup design” (literally, you just pour liquid in as you would a cup!”)
- Very creative design that is really unlike any other tank we’ve seen
- Truly is leak-free
- Very nicely manufactured
- Caged glass tank to protect the glass
- 2 separate drip tips (I really like the clear, plastic one)
- Integrated and hidden airflow control that is easy to adjust
- Very unique coil heads with an interesting airflow design (but I honestly can figure it out)
- Difficult to know where you have your airflow set
- Spitty coils
- Hardly any flavor from the Clapton coils and the others are mediocre at best
I tried all three coils within their recommended ranges and I tried the SS 316 coils in various ranges and temps in TC mode (on a RX200 and an SX Mini ML-Class). At their max power or temp, none of the coils in my experience produce flavor that is noteworthy enough to make me want to vape it beyond the purposes of this review.
The 0.5Ω coil performed all around the best for flavor, but, ultimately, even it was an anemic vape for flavor though it puts out decent vapor. They do include a Clapton coil, but it is a really high resistance for a Clapton (1.5Ω) and it was the absolute worst performer for flavor and vapor – though that one is meant to be more of a mouth-to-lung vape (but even for that, I don’t think it performed well at all—and I do love a good mouth-to-lung vape).
I’ve tried and tried with this tank. I keep thinking that the next attempt will finally reveal some worthwhile flavor, but it hasn’t. As it stands now, this tank is one of the coolest little tanks I have that will never again sit on any of my mods.
I only paid about $20 for this tank, so it’s not a huge loss. But then again, I don’t think I could ever lose a $20 bill and not want it back. When I was vaping on the Cubis tank by Joyetech, it felt like I lost a $20 bill . . . so yeah, I wish I could have my money back.
The two best parts of the Cubis is that it TRULY is leak-free and it does reshape what we think a ‘normal’ clearo should be designed like—and I believe this type of design can eventually perform amazingly—but for me, the flavor is just too lackluster to give it anything more than points for being ‘cool’ and leak-free.
For a tank in this price range, we recommend the Cleito by Aspire.
