Its easy to forget that the majority of vapers don’t care about 200 watt temp control dual/triple 18650 box mods. Most vapers (especially new ones) want a simple device that just works. Shoot, I started with an eGo Twist w/ a Vivi Nova Tank. And that setup was effective enough to help me kick a nasty smoking habit. Well, for those out there in the VAPE DEALS community that are looking for a simple device that just works… do yourself a favor and check out the Joyetech eGo AIO (all-in-one).

There’s nothing special about the Joytech eGo AIO’s packaging. What was special was the fact that the Joyetech eGo AIO includes everything you need to start vaping except for your favorite e-liquid. It includes the Joytech eGo AIO, two 0.6Ω stainless steel coil heads, a spare drip tip, a USB charging cable, user manual and a warranty card.
Let’s be honest here… the Joyetech eGo AIO doesn’t necessarily scream quality. But, what do you expect for a $20-$25 starter kit? With that said… I can honestly say that the Joyetech eGo AIO is easily worth the $25 price point. Basically, it’s kind of like holding a tube with a single button that operates it. It’s so minimalist that it can easily be overlooked. But, let’s dig into the features that help the Joyetech eGo AIO stand out.
The Joyetech eGo AIO’s unibody design features a 1500mAh battery and a Cubis styled tank section. This can be seen as a pro or a con. On the pro side… the unibody design makes for a clean seamless device. On the con side… the unibody design makes the AIO harder to clean. You can’t just unscrew the tank and run it under some water. You have to be very careful to not get water in the button, USB charging port or battery vent. I found it easiest to just fill the tank with water, close it up (without an atomizer head installed) & shake it up. Do that a few times and it cleans up fairly well.
The tank section is based on the Cubis with one major difference. When I first tried to unscrew to top section… it just kept on spinning in circles. I thought maybe I just have to pull it off. That didn’t work. Then I realized that I had to push it down to unscrew it. In other words… the Joyetech eGo AIO features a child-proof lock! This might not be important to a lot of people. But, those out there with little kiddos… this is a welcomed site. The top section also controls the airflow. Line up the two small dots (one on the rotating ring and on on the drip tip) and your airflow is wide open. The problem is “wide open” airflow is still kinda restrictive. At least for me. And, while were talking about the top section… the inside of the drip tip is spiraled. A design that helps prevent spit back. Simple but rather effective.
Other than that… the Joyetech eGo AIO is rather simple. Open it up, fill it up, close it, click the button 5x and start vaping. But hold up… you’ll notice something when you do that… LED lighting. The tank actually lights up in six different (adjustable) colors (red, yellow, green, blue, indigo, white or purple). In order to adjust the color… hold the button down while the AIO is off. The current color will light up. Click the button again and the color should change. Keep doing that until you get to the color you prefer. When you do… just leave it alone. The color will lock in after about two seconds. I personally turned this option off to save on battery life. =)
Unibody construction, child-proof lock and LED lighting are all well and good. But, how does the Joyetech eGo AIO perform? In one word… GREAT! Let’s put it into perspective… the AIO is as good (vapor & flavor) as most 15 to 25 watts mod/tank combos. Keep in mind that this is a sub-ohm mod @ 0.6Ω. Also, keep in mind that it has a tighter draw (even at wide open). Which isn’t necessarily that bad considering that this is marketed towards the starting vaper. Especially vapers switching over from smoking. And, in comparison to smoking… the Joyetech eGo AIO’s air resistance is quite comfortable.
The Joyetech eGo AIO has A LOT going for it. It’s an All-In-One unibody sub-ohm device that performs well, lasts longs and features an anti-leak child-proof top cap. Throw in the fact that it can typically be had for under $25 and you got a winner. Especially if your a smoker looking for a simple but effective starter mod.
