Dual 26650, Unique Design

The first time I saw the iJoy Limitless LUX, I was enamored with the box mod’s boldness. It’s big and powerful, but also functional and unique. This was back at VPX Las Vegas at the iJoy Limitless booth, where I was shown a prototype of the device that would eventually become the LUX. I’ve been anxious to write about it ever since and was thrilled to get the green light from iJoy. Keep reading for more details on this uniquely powerful box mod.

iJoy Limitless LUX Stands Alone

The most obviously unique aspect of the iJoy Limitless LUX is its use of dual 26650 batteries. (You can use twin 18650 batteries with the included adapters, but that’s not the point of this box mod.) iJoy claims that this solution offers better battery life than the triple-18650 batteries on the market. Since high-powered triple-18650 mods like the Reuleaux run batteries in series and a quality 26650 cell has more capacity than a comparable 18650 cell (think Basen Black 26650 vs. LG HG2), that’s a reasonable claim.

Another potential advantage of using dual-26650 batteries is that the form factor will be familiar to most vapers. While I like the triangular shape of the Reuleaux and am intrigued by the asymmetric shape of the Council of Vapor Tempest, some vapers find these form factors unusual or uncomfortable. By comparison, the LUX should feel familiar.

The end result is a box mod that offers long battery, a feature set that will satisfy most vapers, and unique customization opportunities.

While the iJoy Limitless LUX appears to be a fairly standard box mod from the outside looking in, its design is unique. The main chassis houses the electronics and holds the batteries, while the shell provides protection and customization. To change batteries, you simply pull off the shell and snap it back on when they’re replaced. When I was shown the prototype LUX, I was impressed with how easily everything snapped together. As a big fan of accessorizing, I’m looking forward to seeing the various shells released for the mod. It would be killer if Limitless provided a way to make custom shells. (In which case, I would immediately put my face on one.)

Naturally, using two 26650 batteries makes the mod bigger than most dual-18650 boxes, but the iJoy Limitless LUX is smaller than I thought a dual-26650 mod would be. My hands are slightly on the small side and I found the box comfortable to hold. The end result is a box mod that offers long battery, a feature set that will satisfy most vapers, and unique customization opportunities.

A Singular Box Mod

Between its use of dual-26650 batteries and its distinct chassis system, I haven’t seen a box mod quite like the iJoy Limitless LUX. While I have no idea how accurate and capable the IWEPAL chip performs, I’m quite taken with its bold and striking design. What do you think of the latest collaborative vaping product from iJoy and Limitless? Any interest in a dual-26650 mod? What kind of shell would you want for this device?

I’m afraid I’m somewhat outclassed in this discussion. I don’t know shit about the science or chemistry behind batteries. I’m just a guy who knows what he’s looking for in a box mod. I’ve been looking for longer battery life for quite a while now. I’ve been a big fan of the Reuleaux rx200, but was thrilled when I found out iJoy was working on the Maxo Quad. By the time I had the funds available to get one, they had already begun taking pre-orders for their even newer EXO, Reuleaux had begun taking pre-orders for the RX300, and smok had announced their GX350. The EXO and the RX300 are on the way, but now the void I had to fill was that of a more portable/pocket friendly “walkin’ rig” that wouldn’t necessitate the portage of extra cells. All my tanks perform their best over 100 watts, and I’m a heavy vaper, so “regular” dual cell mods just don’t cut it. I’d never had anything other than 18650 mods, so I was tentative when considering the LUX. I finally pulled the trigger when I found out that I could still run it on 18650s if the need arose. I tell ya man… I LOVE THIS MOD!!! It’s comfortable, familiar, and has all the features we’ve come to expect… and the battery life is friggin’ RIDICULOUS!!! I consistently kill my RX200s in less than a waking day… but not this thang! To be fair… I’m comparing brand new iJoy 4200mah 26650s to 6 month old LG HG2s… but STILL… WOW!!! If I HAVE to find the weak link… it would be the enclosure. The mod feels like a quality piece, but the lower housing unit is made of rigid plastic, and doesn’t hold on to the mod as securely as I would like. It’s pretty easy to imagine the enclosure wearing out or breaking, long before you’re ready for it to. If you’re a dripper, I’m guessing you won’t be too fond of the skyward facing OLED, but that’s subjective. Now… on to the part that will either send you battery scientists to the store to get one for yourselves, or convince you that I’m completely f**ked in the head. I can take a rip off my TFV8 (equipped with the V8-T6 coil) while it’s on my RX200 @110watts, and get the huge satisfying taste & cloud I’ve come to expect… then remove the tank & put it on my new LUX (set at the same 110 watts) and achieve a cloud so dense that it damn near chokes me out! It’s almost like exhaling 2 lungs full of straight up water! Absolutely incredible! If you’re a casual vaper, this is more mod than you’ll ever need… but if you’re a “live by the vape, die by the vape” type… run, don’t walk, to your nearest vape shop & demand one of these IMMEDIATELY!!!


I cant decide whether should i buy this limitless lux or wismec reuleaux 2/3.. can u guys please help me? Which one is better?


this or the limitless box mod?


I would vote for this. I like the design better.



The only 26650 mod I have is the Centurion. I’m not impressed. From my limited experience, the chemistry of the 26650s seems no better than 18650s. The mAh ratings seem very exaggerated, unlike the better 18650s. I presume that to be a problem of scale. Fewer products that use the 26650 means less R&D to improve those batteries.


There are a lot of bad batteries with exaggerated specs in general. For 26650, I very much like the Basen Black. The performance is on par with a top 18650 and the capacity is certainly higher.


Beware, the Realux RX200S has 3 batteries in series. So the amount of mAh is not triplicated. The only parameter that is triplicated is the output voltage, ampere and capacity are the same of one batterie.


True, having more cells in series doesn’t increase the total mAh of the combined battery of cells, but it does increase the watt hours, which is the real measure of a battery’s capacity:

3 x 3000 mAh @12.6 V (eg. LG HG2) = 37.8 Wh

2 x 4200 mAh @8.4 V (iJoy 26650) = 35.28 Wh

It’s a narrow win for the triple 18650 setup assuming you’re using 3000 mAh cells, which are pretty commonplace. If you decide not to use the 4200 mAh cells that iJoy provide, and instead use Basen Blacks which have 4500 mAh, then the numbers come out the same as 3 x LG HG2 – 37.8 Wh.


You’re absolutely correct. I shall update.
