I’ve had my eye on the new Joyetech e Grip since I first saw it at my local vapor store. I really liked the idea of a nice compact self-contained vaporizer system. No external tank to worry about breaking when beating around in your pocket. It looked like the perfect e-cigarette for when I was looking for a stealthy vape to take out and about. So when I got an email from my local brick and mortar store letting me know that a black e-Grip came in, I stopped by and picked one up.
The kit comes with the e-Grip, USB cord, wall adapter, spare coil, instruction manual, warranty card and air screw/ coil tool.
The e-Grip is amazingly small when set beside other vaporizers. The Eleaf Istick is about the same height until you add a tank to the top of it.
Despite it’s small size the e-Grip is heavier than it looks. It seems to be put together really well.
Charging 1500 mah battery is a matter of plugging the USB cable that comes in the box to the bottom of the e-Grip and plugging it into the supplied wall adapter or the USB port of your computer.
Filling the e-Grip is just a matter of lifting the lid on the side of the e-Grip and filling through the larger of the two holes that lie underneath the flap. The tank capacity is a large 3.6ml, more than you would expect from such a small device.
If your e-liquid comes with a glass eyedropper you’re going to want to transfer it to a needle bottle, or your going to make a mess in the compartment. However, if your e-liquid has a plastic needle tip you won’t have a problem filling the tank.
On the bottom of the eGrip is a circular cap with a slotted indention for the edge of a coin, or the supplied multi-tool. Unscrewing this cover reveals the coil head. The way its designed makes replacing the coil a very easy task, even if your tank is full of e-liquid, just unscrew the coil and lift it out and replace it. Just make sure that you allow the new coil to saturate for a few minutes before using.
As for as how the e-Grip works, the simple answer is great! Since everything is all contained in a small little package there are no tanks to unscrew to charge your battery, or when it’s time to refill with e-liquid. Simply plug it in to charge the battery, or lift the lid to add e-liquid. The simplicity is amazing!
The operation of the e-Grip is simple and very effective. Just dial in your desired wattage set your air flow screw, and start vaping. The new 1.5 ohms CS Coil Heads preformed flawlessly. The flavor and vapor produced by this coil are second to none.
About the only problem, I have with the Joytech e-Grip is the standard drip tip. While there is nothing wrong with it I prefer a bigger internal bore. Changing the drip tip is very easy to do. Just pull out the stock tip and plug in your desired 510 drip tip.
