Joyetech eGo AIO Vape Pen Review

by

The eGo e-cigarette has changed a great deal since its first appearance in the form of products such as the Inferno e-cigarette in 2010. Although the original eGo models were all designed by Joyetech, outside companies have since begun to develop their own variations. Today, you can find a variety of different eGo-type e-cigarettes with vastly different appearances, features and price ranges. The eGo-W is one of the most interesting variations on the eGo; instead of delivering e-liquid to the heating coil with a tank system such as that of the eGo-Tank, it has its own built-in cubis cartomizer . So, how do the Joyetech eGo AIO Vape Pen and its cubis cartridge perform? Let’s find out.

AIO Capability

 

Opening the package, I was immediately struck by how nice the batteries, cartomizer shells and pen caps felt; they have the satin feel that I loved so eGo AIO  is assembled, it’s small and light and does closely resemble a pen — I even liked the deep red color, which I couldn’t quite capture with my camera.

The eGo-AIO uses the same attachment threading as Cubis eGo e-cigarettes, making it compatible with Cuboid Mini atomizers or cartomizers with all BF coils you might own. However, I’m going to focus on using the eGo-AIO with the included cubis cartomizer, as you may have difficulty fitting the cartomizer shell and pen cap over other attachments.Coil heads are available for the Ego AIO and the Cubis tank: 1ohm SS 316, 0.6ohm SS 316, 1.5ohm Clapton (MTL), 0.5ohm SS 316 and 0.2ohm Ni200.

Using the included needle-tip bottle, filling the cubis atomizer is quite easy. Simply fill the bottle, pull the cartomizer shell and mouthpiece off of the cubis cartridge and look for the small filling hole positioned off to the side. Place the needle over the hole and push gently until it slips through to the tank. It’s a tight fit to discourage leaking, so don’t worry if you feel a little resistance. Squeeze about 2 ml of e-liquid into the cubis cartridge, push the cartomizer shell back over the eGo-AIO battery and push the mouthpiece over the shell. You’re ready to go.

 

Performance

I tested my eGo-AIO e-cigarette with bigfindeal ejuice, an e-liquid with a nice strong berry flavor that particularly shines on lower-voltage devices. Upon filling the cubis cartridge and taking a puff, I had a little trepidation as I’ve had a number of CE2-style cartomizers feed e-liquid poorly and produce dry, harsh vapor in the past. I’m pleased to report that the eGo-W doesn’t have this problem; I was able to get a nice, flavorful cloud of vapor immediately after filling the cartomizer for the first time.

What impressed me even more about the eGo-W was the unusual quality of the vapor; although it was quite cool and had the very low throat hit, the vapor was very full-flavored. I was getting the same great flavor that I remember from when I first reviewed Freedom Juice on my Inferno e-cigarette with a low-resistance atomizer, but I wasn’t getting any of the heat. It was really different. I think this would make the eGo-AIO a compelling e-cigarette for anyone who likes their vapor extremely mild without compromising on the flavor.

The battery life of the eGo-AIO is one of its primary features. Thanks to the relatively high 2.4-ohm resistance of the cubis cartomizer creating a very light load on the battery, I was able to use the eGo-W on and off for nearly a week before I finally had to take it apart for recharging.

Although the eGo-AIO has a pen cap that makes carrying easy, you’ll want to avoid jostling it as much as possible when you bring it outside the house. I clipped the eGo-AIO to the inside of my pocket for a day out on the town, and I noticed after a little while that the cartomizer was gurgling. Some of the e-liquid had seeped up to the top part of the cartomizer, clogging the heating coil and decreasing the vapor production. The normally smooth, free draw was suddenly tight and restricted. That was definitely a bit of a downer, given the convenient, portable package that the eGo-AIO becomes when the cap is in place.

If your eGo-AIO starts to gurgle, you can clear the obstruction by pulling off the mouthpiece and cartomizer shell and removing the cartomizer. Place a paper towel on the end of the cartomizer and blow through just firmly enough to make the gurgling stop. Wipe away the excess e-liquid, put the eGo-AIO back together and you’re ready to go.

Child Lock Function

One of the main eGo-AIO unique selling points is the inclusion of a child lock on the top cap

Light In The Tan

 

There is also a light in the tank section that can be changed to different colors

Price

The eGo-AIO e-cigarette plenty of coils to choose, which means that you’ll need to think about buying replacements after a couple of months. The Ego AIO is being sold as a kit at around $24.99 in  Vapin in the cape , So, one thing to consider about the eGo-AIO  is the cost of ownership; if you use it with the cartomizers, the long-term costs may be slightly higher than with other e-cigarettes as standard cartomizers tend to retail at a little over $10 per five-pack. Although you can use the eGo-AIO with any atomizer or cartomizer you like, doing so will mean that you’ll be sacrificing the cool appearance that you get from using the full three-part assembly of the battery, cartomizer shell, and pen cap.

Standard Kit and Easy Package

Conclusion

The eGo-AIO is a really interesting All in One Starter Kit. It looks great, and the cubis cartomizers are far more reliable than I expected them to be. What’s even more interesting is the quality of the vapor; although the eGo-AIO full of options, it’s quite cool and has little throat hit. In spite of the low throat hit, the vapor is quite full-flavored. Although I did get a bit of gurgling when I carried the eGo-AIO in my pocket, the cubis cartomizer didn’t leak at all. The eGo-AIO is a nice little beginner starter kits.
