The Cubis 2 is officially the second version of Joyetech’s innovative tank that hit the market at the beginning of last year. An updated Cubis Pro was later released, but due to its own performance issues, it never took off. This new version is still is a 22 mm tank with top fill and top-fed airflow, and it’s still set up for low-wattage sub-ohming and MTL vaping with higher resistance heads – but much of the rest has been changed from the original. Even the signature coil head and chimney system is gone. Luckily, Joyetech kept the price low. It’s currently on pre-order at Heavengifts for only $16.60. Wow!
Note: The Cubis 2 will be available in silver, black, white, yellow, red, and blue. Also, it will be sold in color-matching kits with the new CuBox 50W mod.
The Cubis 2 is a stout 3.5 mL tank that reminds me a bit of Smok Brit Beast with its short profile and coned drip tip (but the Cubis 2 tip accepts 510 tips directly into it). Joyetech made this tank more compact at just 22 mm x 43 mm (including the tip), and it has a more finished look and design than the original. The coil system has been redesigned, too, so it should vape differently. A coil threaded onto the bottom of the chimney is replaced by a more traditional head threaded to the base of the tank, but the heads are compatible with the old system (though the old heads won’t work here). That’s good news for vapers that don’t want a new tank, or maybe just prefer the functionality of the original Cubis.
The Cubis 2 has several new coil heads – the ProC-BF series – for different vaping styles. Included with the tank will be their new 0.6-ohm SS316 coil head for MTL vaping (though it seems a bit low of a resistance for MTL). Other resistances available will be SS316 1.0-ohm, a new Clapton 1.5-ohm (both MTL), and a SS316 0.5-ohm coil head (for direct-lung). The TPD (ProC-BFL) coil heads are the same internally, but they’re made with more external mass to reduce the juice capacity without changing the tank size itself.
The new slotted top fill is accessed via a three-stage child lock. You must rotate the (improved) airflow ring, push the top cap back, then flip open. It seems like a lot compared to the original, but it shouldn’t be too bad considering this tank is not a juice guzzler and wouldn’t need a lot of refills. I do get concerned with adding another point of failure to the part of the atty that gets used so much. My guess – and hope – is it will be fine and Joyetech torture tested this “child lock”.
As a long time fan of Joyetech, I am interested to find out if the Cubis 2 will fulfill the promise of the original. The first Cubis had a lot going for it, at least design wise. It was leak-proof, the coils were easy to swap out, and the fill method was ingenious and simple – and up to that point, we hadn’t seen anything like it. But with performance issues, all that goes out the window. If these new coils are long lasting without issues of spitback or flooding, this may be the tank that MTL vapers have been waiting for. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section.
