FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:
The iJoy Captain sub ohm tank comes packaged very nicely. It is in a clear box with everything on one level. The tank itself is absolutely beautiful. I like the look of it and the crease that is kind of between the base and the glass. It gives the tank a kind of curvy look.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
- One Ijoy Captain Sub-Ohm Tank
- One CA2 Fused Clapton Coil
- One CA8 Octuple Coil
- One Replacement Glass Tank Section
- One 510 Drip Tip Adapter
- Spare Parts Pack
- Warranty Card
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Let’s start off with the drip tip. I absolutely love the shape of this drip tip. It is wide and tall and just extremely comfortable to use. It is not a 510 or 810 compatible drip tip though. My 810 fit kind of loose but all of my Smok drip tips from my Beast series of tanks fit snugly. I really like the way they did this drip tip. I just wish they would have made it a proper Goon connection.
The top cap is flat. It is very nicely machine inside. The threading on it is extremely smooth and it goes on and off quite easily. The fill ports are half-circle in shape with a bar in the middle of each half of a circle separating them. The chimney itself seems to be kind of narrow but the part that screws into the coil has a really nice conical design to it.
Between the base and the glass, there is a sort of cut out that kind of gives the tank a curvy look. Right below the cutout you have your airflow slots. They are smooth to operate and there are no stoppers present on them. There is some knurling in between the airflow slots. Below the slots, you have the rest of the base which also has some knurling. The 510 pin is gold plated and non-adjustable. On the bottom of the atomizer, there is some branding from iJoy and threads on the 510 itself are buttery smooth.
The tank is available in a bunch of different capacities. IJoy developed a 2ml, 4ml, and 6ml version. It is also available in stainless steel, black, rainbow, and gunmetal.
The Captain sub ohm tank comes with two excellent coils. I will go over both of them in detail right now. The first coil I tried was the .15 ohm CA8 coil. iJoy has the coil rated from 60 to 120 watts. I’ve been vaping this coil at around 85 watts in power mode and I have been getting a fantastic vape. It will do well in the lower wattages as well but for me the sweet spot is between 85 and 95 watts. I get a very flavorful vape and this coil keeps up with any type of juice I throw at it. I never get any dry hits and the vape quality is just phenomenal. Right now. I have it on my Innokin Coolfire Ultra at 85 watts and I get a lush, flavorful, dense and wet vape. This is my favorite coil out of the two.
The next coil is the .3 ohm CA2. It is a combination of kanthal and stainless steel wire. Ijoy says this produces better clouds and flavor. IJoy has it rated from 60 to 80 watts. This coil is more about the flavor than it is about the clouds, for me at least. It does have very good cloud production but the flavor is where this coil concentrates its efforts. It also has a much tighter wattage range than the CA8 coil. So you don’t have the flexibility to run it as hot as you can run the CA8 coil. Nonetheless, it is still a very good coil that provides a very satisfying vape. I get really good flavor and the clouds are not bad at all.
If I was forced to put the two coils in a category I would have to say that the CA2 to coil is more like a Big Baby Beast coil with better flavor and the CA8 coil is more like the lower end of a TFV12 coil. That’s the way I would rank these two coils. All in all, I don’t think you can go wrong with either one of them. Both coils are not threaded and are the drop in style of coil.
I am a little disappointed in iJoy because they did not develop an RBA section for this tank. I am really hoping that if this tank develops a following, they will do an RBA section for it sometime in the future. With a tank this good, it would be a shame if it did not have one. Get to work iJoy.
BUT DEUCES, HOW DOES SHE VAPE?
What’s not to like about the way this tank vapes? I mean, if you read my description in the previous section, you basically have a choice between a better Baby Beast or a Cloud Beast King type of vape. Both of them are excellent and have something to offer most types of vaper. For me, this is one of the best sub ohm tanks of the year as far as I’m concerned. I have no idea why it’s not getting more play in the vape community because this is truly a great sub ohm tank. It’s probably everything the Crown 3 should have been. The only reason I compare it to the Crown is because they seem to have a similar coil system. However, don’t think for one minute that the quality control on the Captain coils is bad because it is not, not at all. I’m here to tell you that these coils are on point when it comes to flavor. This tank blows the Crown 3 out of the water in every category. So if you were disappointed in the review I gave the Crown 3, fret not my friend. Go get yourself an Ijoy Captain.
This tank just checks off all the boxes for me. I think it’s a sexy looking tank, vapes great, and has versatile coil choices. I mean, what more could you ask for in a tank? This sub ohm tank does everything that you ask it to do and then some. I am a little disappointed that there is no RBA section for it because I think any company that develops a sub ohm tank should give the user the option of an RBA section. Hopefully, this is something at iJoy will develop in the future if this tank takes off.
