Styling and build quality

In some ways the styling of this tank reminds me a little of the Freemax Starre and in some ways vapes a bit like it too. The construction on the whole is very good and it feels suitably durable. The only exception is the base of the tank where the airflow slots are located because it feels a bit rough to the touch. I don’t think you would actually cut yourself on it but I do think it could have been smoothed off better. The glass has a nice thickness to it but take care not to have an accident because you don’t get a spare glass tube in the box.

The drip tip is of the wide bore variety and if you don’t care for it you can happily replace it with any others you own. I tried several drip tips from my collection and they all fitted this tank.

The tank features a standard 510 pin that is non-adjustable. While that might bother some people I had no issues with it since it sat flush on my mods.

The capacity of the iJust2 is excellent and you can fill it with up to 5.5ml of juice so even the heaviest vaper won’t be refilling that often. Speaking of refilling I initially felt that the gap between the glass and the chimney was a little narrow when using dropper bottles since there are only two very small slots, however the slots are housed in a recessed rim and you simply pour your juice down the side and it flows into the holes.

Coil replacement is simple and you should not run into any problems.

Airflow

The airflow design is a little unusual because it is has four machined slots in the base that cannot be closed down. To adjust the airflow you get a rubber vape band in the box that has four slots in it. You fit this over the base of the tank and adjust it to suit. I personally think the tank would be much nicer with a proper stainless steel airflow ring but regardless of my opinion it seems to work and probably helps to keep production costs down.

The iJust2 is mainly for lung hitting vapers but you can vape it mouth to lung if you close down the airflow a lot but keep in mind it is still very loose and airy so might not be ideal. I actually did lung hits with this tank and used it without the included vape band. I found the airflow to be just right but I noticed that if I added the band it made the draw just that little bit smoother.

How does it vape?

I had been sent the entire range of Baker White Tobacco 5 to review so I decided to try them in this tank. Flavour with every juice I tried was extremely good, not an outstanding blow your mind experience but definitely well above average.

Vapour production was excellent and the four airflow slots help to maximise cloud production with no obvious loss of flavour. The draw was really nice and it made for a very smooth vape!

I believe I must have gone through ten tank’s worth of various juice and the coil has been performing really well. I found 30W to give me the nicest vape with just the right amount of heat. Eleaf claim the coils in this tank can be pushed up to 80W, well I’m sorry to break the manufacturer’s bubble but they can’t. If I increased the Wattage higher than 35W I just ended up with a burnt taste. In fairness I did suspect that maybe I had a dud coil but I checked the spare one in the box and got exactly the same result.

I should point that if you plan to buy this tank to run at 80W you will be very disappointed. However it is not a major issue for me because the vape it offered at 30W was seriously good and it means you won’t drain the batteries in your device as fast. Rest assured that this tank puts out plenty of vapour at 30W and I am sure it will be more than acceptable for most typical users.

The coils use Stainless Steel wire so while they can be used in Wattage mode make sure you have a compatible device if you plan to use them with Temperature Control.

Conclusion

This is a very good tank but it does have a few minor shortcomings. Firstly Eleaf claim the coils can handle up to 80W but the ones that came with the tank I received couldn’t. The lack of top filling might be a deal breaker for some but in fairness the tank does have a large capacity so it isn’t a major problem.

The decision by Eleaf to use a rubber vape band rather than a dedicate airflow adjustment ring is somewhat strange but it is easy to use and does protect your fingers when unscrewing the base of the tank which is rather rough to handle. The included coils offer nice flavour and seem to have decent longevity.

Riptide

I certainly did find myself liking the airflow and the draw on this tank. One other bonus is that this tank is compatible with Vaporesso’s ceramic coils so don’t feel you have to restrict yourself to just using Eleaf’s ones. Another advantage is that this tank does put out a considerable amount of vapour and it doesn’t seem to drain overly quickly.

At the end of the day this is a decent tank that does the job and might be well worth picking up if you like the sound of it!
