First Impression Out of the Box
DeucesJack: What’s up everybody? DeucesJack at vapinginsider.com. Today I got the Joyetech Batpack. I guess you should call it a starter kit but this one is a little weird. This one got a little bit of a twist to it. You notice it’s tiny form factor? Tiny tank, but it’s also all got rechargeable AA batteries that it comes with. Which is kind of a cool concept because I guess if you’re out and about and your batteries died, you can drop into gas station or a drug store, pick up a pack of AA batteries and at least you’re able to vape.
Enough about the batteries and everything, let’s cut down low. Let’s check it out up close and personal. Then we’ll cut back on top. We’ll talk about it a little bit, cons, pros and we’re out of here. See you down low.

- 1 ECO D16 Tank
- 2 Avatar AA Ni-MH 2000mAh Rechargeable Batteries
- 2 0.5ohm BFHN Coils

Alright everyone, welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today we’re going to be going over the Joyetech Batpack. This was a sample sent to me directly from Joyetech. Check it out. This one has rechargeable AA batteries. Yeah, it’s kind of weird, kind of new. I’m kind of digging that because AA batteries are available everywhere.
Let’s take a tour around the box. Here’s some media for Joyetech, Joyetech.com, Joyetech branding, more Joyetech emblems. And here we go. This is what you’re going to get in the box. You’re going to get one Batpack mod, a Joye ECO D16 atomizer, BFN 0.5 ohm coil head, 2 manuals, warranty card, 2 warning cards, some spare parts. Has a maximum output wattage of 8 watts. I have the red and gold one. Here’s your scratch-and-sniff.
Let’s pull this thing out of the box and see what we got here. Alright, I’m digging it. Kind of like an Iron Man type of theme. Here’s the coil head. Let’s put that to the side right there. There you go. You can see, what do we got here? BN 0.5 ohm coil head, some wicking channels over there. Kind of a tall coil head, probably hard to prime. You probably just want to juice this thing up and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Let’s put that coil to the side.
Let’s see the actual mod. Well before we do that, let’s go over the paperwork here. We got some spare O rings in the packaging over here. We have a coil card right here. Lets you know a little bit about the coil. We have a warning card, warranty card, and an instruction manual. Let’s file all that to the side, get rid of it.
Let’s check out the actual mod and tank itself. Pretty simple mod. I like the gold and the red coloring. I like that, kind of like an Iron Man type of theme. Let’s take the tank off. Let’s see what we have on top here. On top, we have a gold-plated spring-loaded 510. Little LED light over here, fire button over here, a little divot right here to get your finger in there and open up the battery compartment. Nice magnets, they did a good job on the battery door. These are AA batteries. They come with the mod. They have stickers on them so the mod won’t fire in transport. They are rechargeable. With little divots over here in order to get it out. There you go. Very clear battery orientation markings. I like that. Great job on that, Joyetech.
It is spring-loaded gold-plated contacts, button style contacts on the bottom, also gold-plated. You install the batteries. Negative side that way, positive side this way. Put it right back on and you’re good to go.
1 2 3 4 5, 5 clicks on, 5 clicks off.
Here is your atomizer, the Joyetech Echo D16, stainless steel 510. I don’t see any insulator ring there. Stainless steel threading over here. On the bottom there: Keep calm and vape on. On the top here, this is your proprietary drip tip and top cap all in one piece. Here is your airflow, non-adjustable. In order to fill this, you simply take the proprietary top cap drip tip off and you fill right down the sides here.
Now the juice I’ve been using in this, I’ve been using Nic Salts. I’ve been using this Black Unicorn Strawberry. Really good stuff, man, as far as Nic Salts go. Their whole line is great. The only one I don’t like is the Honeydew one. But man, they make a great Apple, they make a Strawberry and a Mango. Fantastic.
Let’s put it all back together, see what it looks like all together. Alright, there you go. That’s what it looks like altogether. Let’s cut back on top. It’s a simple mod, not a lot to do down here. We’ll cut back on top, we’ll vape on it, talk about it a little bit, cons, pros, we’re out of here. See you back on top.
Alright everyone, we’re back on top with the Joyetech Batpack. First thing I want you to do is I want you to see what this thing actually produces because let me tell you something, this might be the biggest piece of crap I’ve reviewed so far this year. Right up there with the Serisvape UFO.
Check this out, look at this. Horrible, I have nothing but juice in my mouth, Nic Salt juice in my mouth. Did you hear that gurgling? It’s like I’m sipping juice through a straw. I’m going to go closer to the mic so you can actually hear it.
Absolutely disgusting. I don’t understand how Joyetech put out such a piece of garbage like this. Whose brilliant idea this was? I have no idea. You want to know something? I got to tell you, I’ve had this for a couple of weeks now and I’ve been trying it. I tried both coils. Both coils are just crap of garbage. They don’t vape well. I’m getting gurgling and spit back like crazy. It just feels severely underpowered for what it is.
You know, sometimes before I do a rip video like this, I actually want to check myself and make sure I’m not missing something because we’re all humans. And I went and looked at a couple of review for this thing that were out already and I saw people touting this thing and claiming how great it is or how innovative it is and everything like that and it vapes well and stuff like that. Let me tell you something, those people are full of crap because this thing does not vape well. It doesn’t perform well. It’s absolute garbage. Do not waste your money on this.
Joyetech, I know you’re going to be upset with me but you know what? I gotta keep it real and this is a piece of shit. I wouldn’t recommend this. I wouldn’t recommend that anybody goes out and buy this.
But let’s get in to the official cons and pros.
First con is going to be, I understand they did the rechargeable AA batteries, it would have been nice if they would have put a charge board in there since they’re going for portability. I get the reason they didn’t do that was because some people are going to put regular AA batteries in there and that could be a problem/ I understand it. But I still would have liked to have seen some type of charge port there. You know what I mean?
The coils, they’re horrible. These are some of the worst coils I ever use in my life. Disgusting, no vapor production, nothing but spit back, just terrible terrible coils.
Flavor on it is bad. That’s going to be a con.
Cloud production is terrible. That’s going to be a con.
And I’m also going to give them a con for the overall execution, this thing is just a piece of garbage.
Another con I’m going to give it is that drip tip. There’s no adjustable airflow so that’s a con right there. And the airflow is on the bottom of the drip tip so sometimes when you go to vape this thing, your lips actually cover the drip tip. Who came up with that design? Does this guy even vape? Whoever came up with that? That’s a ridiculous design. I just can’t, man.
Let’s just get on the pros and get this over with. There’s a few of them I’m going to give Joyetech some credit on.
First thing is, I’ll give them a pro for being innovative with the rechargeable AA batteries. They’re trying to do something different, I get it. They’ll get a pro for that.
I’ll give them a pro for the easy fill system.
I’ll also give them a pro for, you can use regular AA batteries in a pinch. That’s part of the innovation thing. They’ll get a pro for that.
I’ll give them a pro for simplicity. 5 clicks on, 5 clicks off.
And I’ll give them a pro for the size and the form factor. It’s discreet. We’ll give them a pro for that.
That’s it, folks. That’s what I got for you. Those are my pros and cons. I can’t honestly recommend this to anybody. This thing is a piece of garbage. I would say stay away from it no matter how cheap you see it. I’m chucking up the Deuces to this one. Say bye bye, baby because I would not recommend this at all.
We’ll have links down below just in case you still want to buy it. We’ll also have links to the Black Nic Salts. This is the Strawberry one that I use in here. It doesn’t taste great in here but it taste great with real Nic Salt coils that work. So make sure you check this juice out in the link down below.
That’s it folks. That’s all I got for you today. You keep living that vape life, we’re out of here. Deuces.
