Joyetech Ego AIO Intro
We review the new Joyetech Ego AIO. This is a pen style AIO (all-in-one) device, which means it is capable of both mouth to lung or direct lung vaping and includes a inbuilt battery. The Ego AIO comes with a 2ml leakproof tank similar to that of the Joyetech Cubis tank. It also features a unique top fill that has a child proof lock on it.
In my opinion the Ego AIO is aimed at smokers looking to quit smoking (beginner vapers) or vapers who are looking for a smaller stealth vaping device for taking out and about.

The Joyetech Ego AIO uses the same coil heads as the Cubis. All of these coil head swill work on the Ego AIO. The kit itself comes with two 0.6ohm SS coil heads.
Coil heads available for the Joyetech Ego AIO and the Joyetech Cubis tank: 1.5ohm Clapton (MTL), 1ohm SS 316, 0.6ohm SS 316, 0.5ohm SS 316 and 0.2ohm Ni200.
Notes on Airflow
The airflow on the widest setting (both dots aligned) is an ok direct lung draw. For those used to sub ohm tanks this draw might feel slightly restrictive. You can still direct lung, but it is no-where near as airy as any sub ohm tanks. It will suffice for some stealth direct lung vaping when out and about.
The MTL draw (turn the airflow dot 90 degrees) is good for MTL inhales, but not as restrictive as the draw on the Innokin T18 for example. It is still a good draw for smokers looking for their first vape.
There are 7 different colored LED lights to choose from. These light up in the tank when firing. These lights can also be turned off if you want to save battery life or do not like the lights.
Child Proof Top Fill Lock
The Joyetech Ego AIO has a great top fill which makes re-filling its 2ml tank really easy. The top fill lid is also locked with a child proof cap. This means you need to push down on it to open it. We have child proof caps on e-liquids, so why not have them on tanks? We think this is a great feature.
We like these new AIO devices that are coming out. It gives vapers a lot of flexibility when it comes to their vape. Whilst the Ego AIO is more suited to MTL vaping, the direct lung draw isn’t too bad if you don’t mind it being more restrictive than the draw on sub ohm tanks.
The Joyetech Ego AIO has a 1500mAh battery, which is pretty great considering its small size. It is smaller in size compared with the Innokin Endura T18 and yet has a 1500mAh battery compared to the 1000mAh battery on the Endura!
There are plenty of coils to choose from giving vapers plenty of options. We tried both the 0.6ohm coil and the 1.5ohm Clapton and they both vaped well and produced nice flavor and vapor. We think these might be newer version of the original Cubis coils, as we were not impressed with the initial Cubis coils. It seems Joyetech have ironed out these issues. This isn’t a device for flavor chasers and obviously can’t compare to some of the best sub ohm tanks, RDAs and RTAs. For beginners however, I think the Ego AIO provides a terrific vaping experience.
The Ego AIO is being sold as a kit at around $25 or less depending on where you get it from. This is a great price for those looking for their first vape set up! The Innokin Endura for example is about $5 more expensive and the Ego Ones are even more expensive than the Endura.
Spiral Drip Tip (Anti Spit-Back)
The installed drip tip features spiral design on the inside. This does a great job at protecting against any spit-back that might occur. The spare see-through drip tip does not however feature this spiral design.
Airflow Control Markings
The airflow is difficult to adjust given the lack of markings. For MTL we found it best with the dot moved 90 degrees to either side of the main marking. We would have liked to have seen another marking to indicate this spot for MTL.
The 2ml is a bit on the small side but understandable given the size of the device. The Ego AIO does have a top fill, but we still would have liked to have seen an additional 0.5 or 1ml of extra e-liquid capacity.
We were not a fan of the looks of this device. The black color looks the best, but the others look too ultra-futuristic in our opinion. We are so used to using words like “sleek” and “elegant”, but they definitely don’t apply to this device – it’s a bit of an ugly one!
We are very impressed with the Joyetech Ego AIO. It is a great device for beginners and for those looking to quit smoking. It will also be a good option for those more experienced vapers looking for a portable stealth vape.
Whilst we weren’t a fan of the looks of the Ego AIO, there is not a lot else to complain about. For $25 is it a great price for a device that will be well suited to smokers trying vaping for the first time.
If you are looking for your first vaping device then the Joyetech Ego AIO is a fantastic choice and comparable to Innokin’s Endura T18. Given its AIO capability, smaller size and higher battery capacity we think the Joyetech AIO edges the Endura T18. However, if you want a tighter draw the Innokin T18 is the way forward, as the MTL draw on the Ego AIO was marginally less restrictive.
