The new tornado blows away the old tornados

The iJoy Tornado 150 is the latest tank in the company’s venerable Tornado line. The newest model is a distinct departure from its predecessors. In many ways, the iJoy Tornado 150 is like a shorter and wider version of the Aspire Cleito. At the center of the tank is a coil that also serves as a chimney. Here’s a closer look at the latest iJoy Tornado.

A potentially better Cleito

As a big fan of the Aspire Cleito and several iJoy products, I’m excited by the iJoy Tornado 150. The simplicity of this style of sub-ohm tank is fantastic. It’s easy to use and easy to clean. If something goes wrong, finding the weak link in the chain is never an issue. The top-refill system looks easy to work with as well. In addition to being shorter and wider than the Cleito, this tank looks a bit smarter too.

There are a few things that iJoy is doing better with its take on this type of sub-ohm tank. It’s wider than the Cleito, which looks better on most current box mods. The RTA deck (two-post style) is included, instead of an optional accessory. The Delrin chuff cap is great for high-wattage vaping, but the overall setup is so short that I expect good flavor out of the iJoy Tornado 150. Naturally, a lot of that will depend on the quality of the coils.

Speaking of coils, the iJoy Tornado 150 has two options available. Both use 316L stainless steel wire. The 0.3-ohm coil is rated for 80 to 150 watts, while the 0.25-ohm coil is rated for 40 to 80 watts. As a flavor guy, I’m more interested in the latter. Since so many of you identified as cloud chasers in this vapers poll, I’m sure that many of you will prefer the former.

It looks good and I love its simplicity. Hopefully the coil quality is high.

The iJoy Tornado 150 is available in black and stainless steel finishes. They both look good, but I prefer the black model, since the chuff cap is black for both finishes. Similar to how the tank works mechanically, the design is simple. The top and bottom caps are slim, so you mostly see glass. Between the two finishes, this tank should look good on most mods…except maybe puce-colored mods (there’s no saving puce).

As I mentioned earlier, I’m excited to try out iJoy’s take on this type of sub-ohm tank. It looks good and I love its simplicity. Hopefully the coil quality is high, allowing it to produce strong flavor and ample vapor. How do you ladies and gentlemen feel about the iJoy Tornado 150?
