Joyetech eVic-VT Intro

Today, we’ll take a look at Joyetech’s newest device – the evic-VT temp control box mod. The Evic-VT is Joyetech’s first venture into temp control. Joyetech is in direct line to compete, with the popular iPV4, with similar pricing, and features.

Notable Remarks

We’ve seen Joyetech batteries littering store shelves, just little batteries with no box, and a single button, many now have some type of voltage option. This is not the case with the eVic-VT. While this may have a built in battery, this is where similarities end. The eVic-VT is a full fledge variable wattage device, with the hottest feature in vaping, the wonderful Temperature Control. Opening the box I found a nice slick looking device with a double racing stripe running down both sides, with a nice chrome top and fire button. But looks can be deceiving, so how does it stack up to my iPV4? Surprisingly well actually! This device is quite a beast for it’s size and price. It will handle coil builds down to 0.05 ohms, can crank out 8 volts and can run temps of 600 fahrenheit, and with a 5000 mAh battery it’s got the power, to keep you going between charges.

Evic-VT vs IPV4

Lets take a quick look, at some of the differences. The eVic-VT comes with everything you need, to start enjoying temp controlled sub-ohm vaping, right out of the box, just add your favorite juice. The iPV4 will require purchase of 2 batteries, a charger, and tank. The price of the eVic-VT comes in around $5-$10 more, if we shop around for the best prices. However when we consider the cost of around $50+ for the extras needed. The small price difference between these 2 devices becomes a nice savings in favor of the Joyetech eVic-VT. The iPV4 also takes longer to turn off, and takes a few seconds after turning on, before you can start vaping.

The Look

Like many of Joytech devices, we have some nice color options. Whether it’s the Cool Black with a red racing stripes (featured here), the Dazzling White, with it’s sky blue racing stripes, or the Racing Yellow with black stripes. The eVic-VT definitely plays, to our love of sports cars. Then there’s the chrome, out of the box it has a mirror like finish that just plays so well with the colors.

The Feel

The size may be too small, for someone with very large hands, but for the rest of us, it nicely fits in the palm. It’s comfortable to hold, with it’s nicely rounded edges, and has a good weight for the size, and battery capacity. The fire button is a nice size, and while smaller than some, there’s nothing to get in the way, or that might cause larger fingers trouble. The rocker is nicely, positioned above, and out of the way, of the fire button. It’s easily usable with the pointer finger, or thumb, unlike some devices, that may have you juggling your device, into a better position.

How does it Vape

Joyetech eVic-VT and Tank
Joyetech eVic-VT and Tank

Nickel Coil 0.2 ohm: At 450, it delivers a nice cool hit, at 600 it’s a nice warm hit.

Titanium Coil 0.4 ohm: Gives a slightly warmer vape at 600 degrees, and heat’s up extremely quick.

Kanthal Coil 0.55 ohm: At 30 watts it gives the same as any other sub-ohm device.

Flavor: The flavor is a bit muted, but no more than other tanks of this style.

I quite enjoyed, the worry free vaping experience of the eVic-VT. Unlike the iPV4 that requires you to remember to set resistance when changing coils, the eVic-VT reminds you by asking, new coil or same coil. Setting temperature or any other setting is a snap, just tap the power button 3 times, and see all the options you can change at the same time, instead of guessing which setting is next. (it doesn’t show the different options for each setting, but there are only 3 at most)

While 100 watts would be ideal, for pretty much everyone, it would also make for a less friendly product. The 60 watt limit keeps things from getting too hot, and having to fiddle with the settings, to prevent burnt e-liquid.

Who is this for

The eVic-VT is aimed at people wanting to get up and running with sub-ohm and temp control, but don’t want to make a big investment. Because of the built in battery, it’s something that will get recycled once the battery is dead.

Joyetech eVic-VT Button
Joyetech eVic-VT Button
  • Compact design, easily fits in small to medium size hands
  • Bright easy to read OLED display, readable on a sunny day as long as you’re not getting a strong reflection.
  • Stealth vaping option, turns off display when firing
  • One finger adjustment and firing, I nicely placed rocker allows easy adjustment with forefinger or thumb.
  • 5000 mAh battery, with great capacity, we get nearly 2000 secs of of vaping at 500-600 degrees at 60 watts. For the average vaping at 3 puffs, for 3 seconds, every 20 mins, we get about 74 hours of vaping, or 4.5 days.
  • Silicone sleeve
  • Short airflow deck, it’s amazingly small, at half the height of the Kanger subtank mini and still allowing as much if not more airflow.
  • Airflow, from a nice tight draw, to very airy, there’s a setting for everyone.
  • The temp control is extremely easy to use

It’s a well made, inexpensive device that has very nice features. No need to hunt for compatible parts and best prices. Controls are easy to use, and comfortable to use. It should definitely turn some heads. Stealth display, I wish all devices had this option, whether you’re watching a movie in a dark room, lying in bed, or riding down a dark street, chances are you don’t want to be blinded by a bright OLED. The setting lock option is also nice, as it prevents us from changing the temp by mistake. While I hate to cover this beauty, the silicone sleeve is a great addition to insure the eVic-VT stays looking new as long as possible.

Dislikes

  • Left right rocker makes it more difficult to access Fire + Left/Right options. This is a minor issue as it’s used for turning on stealth mode and locking the rocker so you don’t accidentally change temp/watt settings.
  • 1 amp charger, charging times are going to be long.
  • Fixed battery, without the option to simply swap batteries, once the batteries wear out, it’s time to get a new device.
  • The wattage is a bit low for the .2 ohm coil
  • Non-adjustable 510 pin
  • Tip is cheaply made

I’m not a fan of fixed battery devices, even if I plan to replace them, we may need a device as a backup after damage, loss, or theft. While I like the rocker, and position, it does make it more difficult to lock the settings or enable stealth. The tip, at least on the one I received was so tight to remove that it quite literally came apart, a plastic tube with a metal sleeve.

Verdict

While I’ll be sticking with my iPV4 for temp control vaping, it’s only because I prefer replaceable batteries, and the higher wattage of the iPV4. The eVic-VT beats the iPV4, in ease of use, and ease of control. It is an excellent device for anyone wanting to try temperature control, even if they are fairly new to vaping. While it does help to have some knowledge, Joyetech has done an excellent job, of making the eVic-VT very hassle free. If you’re a more experienced vaper, and are looking for your next upgrade, this will likely be a pass, unless you’re looking for an inexpensive backup device. With a built in battery the device is pretty much limited to the life of the battery. And if like myself, you sell your old devices to help pay for your next, non-replaceable batteries make that tougher to sell used. To sum it all up, a great device for people that want to try temp control with no worries, no hassle. A bit underpowered and limited life for those looking to upgrade from a variable wattage or mechanical device.

    Lets be honest. The development these days makes in unlikely to have a that box longer than 2 years which is the usual battery lifetime. if you have to charge it every 2 days it might even be longer.

    personally what i donkt like so much is the mettal. maybe aluminium woul dhave beend a better choice because of the weight. ok it feels very solid, solid enough to serisously consider it as a self defense device (iam not joking here :))

    the tank that comes with isnt bad at all, their vertical coils are also not bad, however as a mouth to lungh fan the tight draw is very hard to adjust.

    oh and no, its not only for subohm lovers, i hate direct draw, but i love the long battery life on this one.
    i replaxe my SMOKE box with it because i had to charge twice a day and if i forgot i had to use a powerbank all the time. those problme are now gone for good :))

    the fixed battery also has the advantage of an USB port, so youre more flexible if you have to charge on the road. while some 18650s mods also can charge it with usb that is usually not really ideal.

    another nice feature i didnt read about here is that it is actually preheating the coil. it always uses 30watts for just a fraction to get the join up to speed then falls back to the set wattage.
    downside is temp. vaping is only possible at 30watts and higher

    but thats ok until they come up with a head with real built in temp. measuring iam not really gonna look into temp. vaping anyway. those guessed values are not really my thing 🙂

    • Wasa

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts and views. While I, like yourself have not gone 2 years or more with the same unit, I felt that for some that might be important. Plus I find it a bit easier to resell a device that uses removable batteries.

      On preheating the coils, that you mentioned, Are you referring to temp modes, or watt mode?
      I did do some light testing with a aspire atlantis for watt testing, but didn’t notice any difference from any other sub mods i’ve used.

      • woswas denni

        sorry for some reason i never red the diqus thing.
        to answer your question (better late then never huh ?) it preheats always.
        even in wattmode. dont worry youre not damaging anything. its just a split second qith a energy spike. the trick is with that you have an absolute consistent energy output and consistent vaporizing according to your temperature.

        if you see any difference well it depends how you vape (when you pull), which liquid and which watt. in many cases you wont notice anything, in extreme cases it can be a huge difference.
        also in theory coils should last longer that way. if the coil is not pre heated more residue stays there. well in theory, i have no way to proof that or meaning todo so 🙂

    I’ve had mine for about a week. Bought the kit. I’ve only been vaping for 5 weeks. Vaping made it easy to quit my 2 pack a day, 40 yr. Marlboro Red habit. I started with the eLeaf Istick 40 W TC mini mod, but wanted this one the day I saw it at the vape store. The eLeaf quit working after 2 weeks. I can’t have that. I need something bulletproof. Everything I read about JoyeTech said they were. Every video I watched, every review I’ve read about eVic VT has been good. High praises. I’m not an expert, but I don’t see how vaping can be any better than this! The juice last 2 days. I chain vape and my battery hasn’t got below 3/4 charge yet! I vape at 35 watts, and from 450 – 520° depending on the time of day. Less early in the morning, more after my lungs kick in. Always easy to find that perfect vape. So many ranges to choose from. Plus, its a thing of beauty. I’ve got the white/blue. Solidly built. Wish I had a ’68 Hemi Roadrunner in this color scheme. I LOVE THIS THING!

  • Justin

    I’ve been having the reoccurring issue (for about 3 months) of liquid coming out of the atomizer and dripping out through the airflow. Is there any way to stop this? I’ve changed the atomizer (nickel) several times, made sure all the seals are tight, changed the liquid in the tank, and even changed my specs. This is the only issue I’ve run into with this mod, otherwise I absolutely love it.

    • Dave @ TBEC Review

      I have never had this issue but perhaps that is why Joyetech started selling their products with a new tank called the Tron. It looks awesome and hopefully they have addressed any leaking issues.

  • Tandy

    After receiving a faulty one (from a different vendor) and
    trying to get the warranty honored by Joyetech I will never purchase one of
    their products again. If you want to roll the dice on getting one that works
    properly go for it, but don’t expect anything resembling respect or
    professionalism from their customer disservice department if you get a dud.

  • JD

    Biggest fucking piece of garbage I ever purchased. Leaks like a motherfucker, the coils burn out way too quick, and it broke within a month of purchase. I’m back to smoking cigarettes. Never better.

    • Dave @ TBEC Review

      Thanks for the feedback. How did your device break within a month? Most of these companies are more than happy to repair/replace defective items from my experience. I have never had any leaking with this tank and the coils are only supposed to last 1-3 weeks depending on how much you vape.
      I am really sorry to hear that you are smoking but if you are happier than ever before, SMOKE ON!

  • Karma023

    My fiance just gave me his Joyetech eVic-VT and it is refusing to hold a charge I am not sure how to fix my new vape. Help please.

    • What do you mean by “refusing to hold a charge”? May I ask how long you have had the device for?

      • Karma023

        When ever I take it off the charger it dies in less than three minutes. I have have had it since Monday he had it for around two months he had gotten it from a friend who had it for a month or two.

        • Dave @ TBEC Review

          My guess is that the battery is no longer good. Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. I would use it with a freshly charged, brand new 18650 battery and see what happens. If it is still doing that, you may have to send it back to Joyetech.

          • Chris Tibb Miller

            It doesn’t use 18650’s they are 3 rectangle cells inside and to note they are 1500mah each making it only 4500mah not the 5000mah as claimed by Joyetech. They can only be accessed by taking the unit apart. Might want to learn the device before hand lol

          • Dave @ Vaping 360

            Ok, I forgot that the original had a built in battery, I own the VTC mini which allows you to change batteries. I didn’t write this review but I was just trying to help. Hope you were able to get a new unit from Joyetech.

          • Chris Tibb Miller

            surprisingly Yes I was able too get a new unit

          • Dave @ Vaping 360

            Sweet!!! Congrats man happy vaping. Props to Joyetech! I’m still loving my Evic Mini VTC, hope you are enjoying yours too! -Dave

  • Alex Hoshor

    I bought one of these a few months ago. It had a lot of problems. The vendor was good enough to send a replacement, and it worked great for a little while. But eventually it started having the same problems as the first. It wouldn’t stay locked on to the resistance, even though I had the atomizer lock on. It seemed to have random power loss with weak hits. Then it started jumping out of TC mode into power mode, which is a real problem. Then it finally just stopped recognizing tanks (said no atomizer found). I have one tank now that it will detect if it’s threaded on just right. But it ticks very loudly and I can even feel the ticks vibrating in my hand. So I’m done with it. I emailed Joyetech a couple weeks ago but they never replied. I’m extremely disappointed with the device and with the company.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I also bought one of these. after a week or two, the evic VT stopped locking the temperature write. The resistance value dropped every time. which results in a cold tasteless vape. I tried to contact the vendor, dampwinkel.be but they told me to do a firmware upgrade (not possible on the evic VT) . He told me he would look for a solution, but i never got an answer back, not by email, not by phone. I then decided to contact Joyetech. Apparently the vendor is not an official reseller. this causes that the buying date did not match the date i bought it, but the time the vendor did. result, i was past the 3 months Joyetech warranty and they refused to help me. conclusion : Bad product, and even worse service from Joyetech!!!! think twice before you buy one of those. Many have problems with this ecig, look for it on youtube.

    I think it’s about time this author read a book on when it is or isn’t necessary to use an apostrophe in “its” or when commas should or shouldn’t come into play. This is elementary-grade stuff, seriously.
    Grammar rant aside, I just bought this kit today as a replacement for my Evod2 kit which was severely underwhelming. So far I’m thoroughly enjoying the temp control and the fact that the battery lasts more than two hours. Plus it looks like the kind of thing a robot would smoke, if robots were so inclined to moisten their gears with nicotine for some reason. Once again, thoroughly enjoying it. Best purchase I’ve made this year.

    • Robert Shannon

      Before correcting people, (in a decidedly douchy manner no less)…make sure your shit is perfect.
      Assholes everywhere…..

      • Raghbir Jin

        Wow. Alright. Just trying to offer some constructive criticism. I proofread for a living, for people like me and in articles like this the typos distract from the message. It takes away from the enjoyment of reading the piece. It was well written with an entertaining voice, but it could be more with a bit of effort (or a copy editor, which every web-based media company should have on staff).

    I’ve been vaping for around 4 years. I went from the tube to box mod, not yet to replaceable battery, I’m leaving that for my next mod. I just switched from the innokin 360 pro over to the eVic VT. I wanted to see what temperature control was all about, so far I’m loving it. All good as the pros in this review discribes. Just make sure you do your homework on what atamizor to use for temp control. Luckily I have access to very knowledge people at my local vape shop who set me up right, or else I’d be in the dark with all this new tech lol. As far as the tank goes, I’ve always preferred Aspire. I’ve used the Nautilus, Atlantis, and now, I’m using a Nautilus Mega with an adapter for the smaller drip tips. The tank holds a good 5ml of juice, and has great air flow. As far as the drip tips go, the smaller bore makes a huge difference for me, I taste much better flavor from my favorite juice, especially with the bullet tips. After reading the responces to this thread, it sounds like some of the problems others described are from the tank itself, and not so much the battery. I would recommend looking into a new tank, and like I’ve said, doing your homework on atamizors. I replace my atamizor often, probably more so than others. For me, I’m going to use this battery until it burns out. It gets the job done! Happy vaping everyone, burn smart and safe!
