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.
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 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
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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
