Eleaf iJust 2 Kit styling and build quality

I think it is fair to say that starter kits have come a very long way, I have fond memories of my first starter kit which got me off cigarettes but that was little more than a typical eGo battery.

In many ways the iJust 2 Kit is very much like a mechanical mod, essentially it has a simple fire button and a 2600mAh battery which can be charged via the included USB cable. Unlike a lot of other devices this device does not have any form of variable wattage and fires at the most appropriate wattage based on the resistance of your coil. In some ways this might be a major drawback for some users since it limits the flexibility to control the type of draw you get.

In terms of construction the tube mod itself is nicely put together and it feels reasonably durable, the tube has a single switch that is well positioned and comfortable to use but it does rattle to quite a degree and feels somewhat cheaply made. There is an LED behind the switch which does light up when you fire the device or switch it on and off but it is a little awkward to see since much of it is hidden by the switch.

The overall form factor of the tube is nice and it feels comfortable to hold, the brushed steel finish is attractive and it does not feel slippery when held in the hand. The tube is also much lighter than a typical mechanical mod.

The 510 pin is spring-loaded and looks to be made of brass, part of the top of the device is recessed and there are four venting channels. The iJust 2 tank fits really well with the device and there are no visible gaps, I tried a few of my other atomizers and they also fitted the tube well.

Apart from the four vents at the top there is no other ventilation on this device and I would have at least expected to see one or two holes in the base of the tube. On the plus side of things the device does have safety feature such as short circuit protection, low voltage and overcharge protection.

The Micro USB port is located on the back of the tube and since it is fitted horizontally you will be able to keep the device upright while it is charging.

The included iJust 2 Tank sadly does not have a dedicated airflow control ring and what you get instead is a vape band with cut out airflow slots which is designed to be slipped over the tank and allow you to adjust it to suit. Frankly I think this looks a bit poor and I mentioned this fact when I reviewed the tank previously. I think it looks worse with this device because it spoils the whole aesthetic and nice streamlining that the mod has. Apparently from what I have read Eleaf will be making a proper airflow control ring for the next iJust 2 tank.

Ease of use

This device is incredibly simple to use and it simply is a case of screwing on your atomizer and pressing the fire button five times to switch it on/off.

Filling the tank is straightforward enough but keep in mind it is bottom fill only. One other thing to note is that you should be really careful when unscrewing the tank from the tube because you can accidentally unscrew the tank itself and dump E-Liquid over your lap (it happened to me once already).

How does it vape?

I have already covered the iJust 2 Tank in another review so if you would like more information then please check that out.

I firstly primed the coil and then filled up the tank with some of Vapour Freaks Phantom, after allowing at least five to ten minutes I took my first vape. Initial impressions were good and it made for a very flavoursome vape albeit one that you cannot properly adjust to your liking, the iJust 2 Tank really does put out loads of vapour and while in some ways this is a good thing it may be a little overkill for a newcomer to vaping.

A potential problem for newcomers is the fact that the airflow of the tank is pretty full on, which I honestly feel would not be appropriate for someone who is trying to quit cigarettes and are probably looking for a mouth to lung vaping experience. While you can adjust the airflow vape band/ring and close the airflow down heavily it is still rather airy.

When vaping with the pre-fitted 0.30hm coil the tube is delivering about 40W of power and providing you are a modest user it may last you all day. What I did find after using this device for a couple of hours was that the included coil burnt out quickly or perhaps it was merely a consistent unpleasant taste due to the fact that the wattage cannot be tweaked at all.  I never found this to be an issue when using the iJust 2 Tank on a Variable Wattage device, given the fact that only one coil is included in the package you may not get as much use out of this kit as you might think.

Charge time via the USB cable takes rougly 2.5-3.0 hours.

Conclusion

While the actual concept was a decent one I feel that the actual execution is something of a misstep. Firstly the device does not allow a user to adjust the wattage at all which I feel is something of a mistake. Even back in the dark ages of vaping I remember being able to adjust my eGo battery to some degree.

Secondly the decision to bundle a full on and very airy Sub Ohm tank into this package is a strange one, the reason I say this is because a new user will likely gravitate to a mouth to lung style vape first before moving on to lung inhaling much later or possibly never and this seriously limits the appeal of this device. You could argue that it caters to Sub Ohm cloud chasing users but then why would they ever buy a starter kit that limits their options?

To be fair I felt that the iJust 2 was a decent enough tank when I reviewed it but one that is aimed at lung hitting vapers. Unfortunately when using this tank with the iJust 2 mod the coil seemed to suffer heavily and I honestly wouldn’t want to use that tank on this device especially since it only includes a single coil.

Considering all of the issues I feel that Eleaf should rework this product to some degree because if these problems are addressed then it may be a worthwhile purchase. It’s a shame really because for the most part the tube itself is nicely made and it feels good to use. Personally I would suggest you pick up the tank if you like the sound of it and combine it with a device that offers you much better options. At the end of the day the choice is yours.
