Joyetech Ocular Intro

The upcoming Ocular mods is a pair of “smart e-cigarettes” from Joyetech. The only difference between the Ocular and the C model is the battery configuration: the Ocular is powered by in internal 5000mAh battery while the Ocular C accepts two 18650 Ocular/Ocular C mod batteries (Joyetech recommends batteries with a minimum 25A constant discharge rating).

Joyetech-Ocula

Those familiar with the Cuboid may notice that the Ocular is very similar aesthetically: it is a no-frills box with the same location for the fire button, the same hinged door for battery access (Ocular C model only), and is within a few millimeters in size. Like the Cuboid, the 150W (upgradeable to 200W) Ocular does VW as well as temperature control with Ni/Ti/SS316 wire, but the most obvious differences are the headphone jack and the TFT touch panel which allows the user to interact with the many new features packed into the Ocular. Among the bevy of features, the Ocular includes an mp3 player, photo gallery, fitness tracker, and bluetooth connectivity with your Android or Apple smartphone via a downloadable Joyetech app.

The Ocular has 2 GB of internal storage (non-expandable) that allows you to keep up to 100 photos and/or 50 music files close at hand.

As this is merely a preview, we won’t explore each feature in depth, but here is more complete list:

  • 5-press on/off
  • Swipe to unlock
  • Swipe to change modes
  • Clock/battery level display on home screen
  • Auto screen lock or wallpaper display while vaping
  • Screen saver
  • Puff count, puff history by day, and daily puff limit
  • Stealth mode
  • Fitness tracker (pedometer)
  • Mp3 music player
  • Storage of up to 100 photos and/or 50 music files
  • Bluetooth connectivity with Android or Apple smartphone via Joyetech VT app

Joyetech describes their app as “…a functional and interesting platform that integrates data transmission, fitness, and socializing” and allows you to “…master your device via Bluetooth. It also enables to set your vaping plan, check steps report, import photos to your device and even communicate with your friends, making it a total healthy community.”

If you want to take a more detailed look at the Ocular, and there is a lot to see, I urge you to check out the video at the Joyetech site:

While the Ocular is not the first touchscreen mod to hit the market, it incorporates a lot of interesting features, seems intuitive to operate, and allows you to carry a gallery of photos and selection of your music library. While it may be a bit redundant when carrying your phone, it’s nice to have the option of using your mod for all those luxuries to conserve battery power on your phone.

    “The Ocular has 2mb of internal storage” – Pretty sure that ought to say 2GB, not 2MB!

    Even 2GB is fairly pitiful considering that you can pick up a 32GB SD card for under a fiver these days. I’m not sure why they bothered adding such dubious functionalities as music playback and photo viewing to a vape mod, especially if they’re going to half-ass it on the amount of storage.

      Yep -definitely should be 2GB. We’ll fix it, thanks.

      I suppose some will view the photo and music features with skepticism, and they may seem gimmicky, but on the other hand I personally know folks who fret over the battery life on their phones, and may welcome it as a secondary feature on their mod.
