Review of Eleaf iPower 80W TC box mod

If you’re looking for a relatively small vaping device, but don’t want to skimp on features or battery life then the Eleaf iPower 80W could be exactly what you’re looking for. This box mod packs a substanial 5,000mAh battery in a svelte form factor and has most modern methods of temperature control. On paper, the Eleaf iPower offers an impressive amount of functionality while keeping the form factor small.

The Eleaf iPower 80W TC is the best-looking mainstream mod and a sign of a new generation of devices from eLeaf. I love how the iPower integrates Eleaf and Joyetech’s latest technology with a massive 5000 mAh LiPo battery pack, and the most recent temperature control technology to come along.

The iPower 80W TC Box Mod offers an output range of 1 to 80W with a resistance range of 0.1 to 3.5 ohms. The numerous modes available to the user include Variable Wattage, ByPass (mech mod mode) mode, Smart, TC Ni, TC Ti, TC SS and TCR. Once again we see the dual circuit protection, a system that runs both software and hardware protection against over-charging, over-current, and over-discharging.

The 5000 mAh LiPo battery provides a new level of battery life and when charged at the max current of 1A, it quickly recharges. I’ve been using the iPower for several days now and I am surprised every time when, at the end of the day, I have quite a bit of power left, even when using the new Joyetech Ultimo Tank. (review coming soon). I used both the Ultimo and the Atom Vapes Metropolis with the iPower, and both look great sitting atop the device. The Ultimo (.2-ohm coil head) uses a bit more than 60W for the best vape, while the Metropolis (.5-ohm) uses just 30W, so you can extend the battery life according to the tank/coils you use.

Full temperature control provides support for Ni200 (Nickel), Ti (Titanium), and SS (Stainless Steel) coils, and a TCR mode that allows users to set, and adjust, up to three memory slots.

Additionally, the startup logo on the screen can be customized by uploading a 96 x 16 BMP image onto the box through Eleaf’s software. On an aesthetic note, I wanted to highlight the wood grain finish. I absolutely love it!

For vapers looking for an inexpensive box mod that’s full features without being full bodied, the Eleaf iPower is definitely worth a look.

It’s only $32.99 on Urvapin. Get it right now.

Preview of iJoy MAXO V12

The SMOK TF-series has been a staple in the vape community since the original TFV4. The iJoy MAXO V12 tank takes a stab directly at the latest version of this tank, which features duodenary, aka twelve, coils in one.

And it is strikingly similar to the SMOK TFV12, also known as the Cloud Beast King. Which tank do you think will be worthy of the crown?

I can’t help but look at this tank and compare the two. They’re both suitable for vaping at high wattages, similar in price and features which will make this decision even more difficult.

You should know the difference between V12 and TFV12 before you get it:

The MAXO V12 has a spring-loaded 510, the TFV12 doesn’t.

The Maxo V12 has a 28mm diameter whereas the TFV12’s is 27mm.

The TFV12 holds 6 mL of juice and the MAXO V12 holds a little bit less at 5.6mL.

The MAXO V12 and the TFV12 both feature a very similar flip-top fill system.

The MAXO V12 is currently $3 more than the TFV12.

The TFV12 has two RTA options whereas the MAXO V12 uses one triple-post design.

Both utilize duodenary coil heads (twelve coils in one)

The MAXO V12 is suitable up to 315 watts, whereas the TFV12 can go up to 350.

The TFV12 is advertised by SMOK as high-temperature resistant and “explosion-proof”.

Obviously, the MAXO V12 is for the extreme vapers. If you are just getting into vaping and want to blow some huge clouds right away, I would recommend something a little less insane. But if you are crazy and want to maximize your cloud production, then this it!

If you are thinking about buying the MAXO V12, you are probably also comparing it to the TFV12. They are almost identical, despite a few minor differences. It will be very interesting to see which one becomes the hotter seller.

What’s your opinion about it?
