What’s up vapefam!
SirRisc here with another gear review!
It’s been a while since I’ve published a review, but here I am again with a somewhat shorter review than usual.
Today I will be looking at the Joyetech Cubis clearomizer.
The Joyetech Cubis was sent to me for the purpose of this review by Heavengifts!
I’ve never really liked Joyetech products until the Evic VTC Mini appeared on the market, not so much because they’re bad products but because I believe Joyetech can do even better.
With the Evic VTC Mini they scored high in my book, but it wasn’t perfect from the get go. Fortunately they are releasing firmware upgrades that are solving a lot of the issues I had with it.
Joyetech, in my opinion, is a company that is trying to innovate and by doing so they are advacing the market, much to the dismay of anti-vaping politicians.
With the Cubis tank they are innovating again, because the Cubis is really an odd design when you first look at it.
But does their innovation work? Let’s have a look, shall we?
- Stainless steel construction
- Pyrex glass
- Available in black, silver, gold, green, white, red and gray
- 3.5ml capacity
- Delrin and stainless steel driptip included
- 3 coilheads included (0.5ohm SS316, 1.0ohm SS316, 1.5ohm FeCral clapton)
- Hidden airflow control
The Cubis comes in a rather simple white box, though with a clean design.
On the front you’ll see a depiction of the tank, on the back are the specifications and serial number.
Opening the box reveals the tank in a white foam insert, with the extra driptip next to it.
Just beneath the tank are two spare coilheads in a black blisterpack.
Also included is a usermanual, a coil usage reference card, and a warranty card.
The Cubis is a strange one, and not just in design.
The performance is alright with all three of the coils, but they all differ slightly in how they work.
The 1.5ohm FeCral clapton coilhead for example is obviously made to cater to people who prefer mouth-to-lung hits.
The airflow on this coilhead is considerably more restricted and the power needed is certainly in the lower regions.
Rated at a maximum power of 20W, this coilhead will do its best work somewhere around 14W.
Closing the airflow down on the tank is advised for this one.
The 1.0ohm SS316 coilhead is a good segway into temperature control, and can provide both a MTL drag as a straight lung inhale.
Being made from SS316 this coilhead will work best with a device that can do TC on SS alloy, like the Joyetech Cuboid or the Joyetech Evic VTC Mini.
In terms of power it doesn’t need all that much either, between 10W and 25W. Temperature can be set to taste and it will have a slightly restricted draw.
The 0.5ohm coil is also made from SS316 alloy and provides about the same experience as the 1.0ohm coilhead with one difference, it’s less restricted.
This coil is definitely meant more to cater to straight lung inhales and performs slightly better in my opinion.
Though that could be personal preference of course.
The tank itself is a bit of an oddball in the way it works.
The airflow ring sits on top and is subtely hidden from view, the coilheads are about 50% of the chimney, and the actual tank itself is more of a cup.
Filling the tank is as easy as it gets because of that last fact, the entire chimney lifts out of the tank leaving just the “cup” so any type of bottle or dripper will fit.
The airflow can be adjusted on top but you won’t be able to see how far open or closed it is, which I found to be a slight annoyance.
The chimney is comprised of two parts, the actual chimney and the ventpipe. The ventpipe can be taken out and allows the tank to have a less restricted airflow.
When Joyetech says this is spillproof, they mean it’s fucking spillproof.
Save from unscrewing the parts and tipping the tank over, it won’t leak a drop of juice.
Despite having a few flaws and the design being a bit odd, the Cubis does very well in terms of flavor.
Slightly warm, full, dense vapor shoots from the chimney carrying the flavor of the liquid as it is meant to taste.
This is of course because the short path the vapor has to travel to get out of the tank, and the short airflow.
The Cubis does really well in that regard, much like the Aspire Cleito.
The Cubis tank looks like a little aquarium for your juice, it’s a simple construction with a large glass section.
On the side of the tank you’ll see the name “Cubis” etched just above the glass, and “Joyetech” on the bottom.
But that’s it really, the Cubis is just plain and simple in its look.
Pros and Cons.
- 3.5ml capacity
- Low power needed
- Suited for both MTL and straight lung inhales
- Spill proof
- Easy filling
- Coilheads don’t last long
- Hard to know how your airflow is configured
- Easy to overfill (resulting in liquid pouring out over the top, gets really messy)
The Cubis is an innovative design and performs quite well, but it doesn’t really suit my style of vaping.
Is it a good atomizer? Yes, it looks simple but hides a myriad of options.
The draw is very different per coilhead and the experience is largely customisable because of this.
Joyetech has hinted at an RBA section for the Cubis too, which may open the tank up to even more options.
Perhaps one of the new coilheads will sway my opinion, but for now I will set the Cubis aside.
In closing I would like to thank Heavengifts for sending me the Joyetech Cubis for review!
And of course all of you who read my reviews, thank you very much!
Join me next time as I look into the Koopor Mini!
(Yes, I do realise it’s an older device but I never got around to the review so I’m doing it now)
