Vaping has become the main alternative for people who want to quit smoking. However, two of the biggest hurdles faced by long-term quitters include the low capacity of vape pens and the complexity of modern box mods.

To be honest, shifting from using your lighter to tinkering your mod, cleaning your tank, changing your coil, and setting up your device can be a pretty daunting task. Obviously, the solution lies between vape pens and bulky box mods. In short, the new portable pod systems will most likely save your day from all these hassles.

Pod systems, unlike traditional cartomizers, come with cartridges that already have a coil, wick, and even vape liquid. It also has a longer battery power than most vape pens and cigalike devices. But its main selling point is its relatively affordable price.

However, just like any other vaping device, the pods also have their advantages and disadvantages. In any case, your choice will determine what will suit your needs best.

One of the many players in the vaping industry is iJoy. Its iJoy vape pods are gaining popularity across the market, but I am going to review the Pole Starter Kit today.

The iJoy Pole Kit is a simple yet compact all-in-one device that is best for vapers who are looking for mouth-to-lung (MTL) draws. With a built-in 650mAh battery under the hood, this baby can give you enough power to vape all day long.

It is equipped with an LED indicator to show you your battery status. For instance, if you see your Pole flashing green light 10 times, then this means it is time to recharge. Also, when charging, the device will glow red light. When this turns to green, it signifies that your battery is fully charged and you can go back to vaping.

The iJoy Pole can hold only 1.9mL of e-juice, just 0.10 mL short of most cartridges. Nevertheless, the amount, together with your battery, can last long for most average vapers. If you are a chain vaper, then that is another story. This works really well for both nicotine salts and freebase nicotine vape liquids.

The iJoy Pole Kit comes with a chipset designed by IWEPAL. This provides the device with protection features including short circuit protection and lower power protection. It also boasts of an oxidation technology.

When you talk atomizers, this baby uses top airflow intake. More importantly, its coil is made from ceramic that prevent dry hits and prolongs the life of your coil.

Presentation-wise, the iJoy Pole does not disappoint. Its chassis is made from aluminum alloy CNC, and it comes in various fashionable colors. At, you can get this device in black, red, blue, and white color.

Standing at just 16mm × 114.7mm, this vape-pen-style design vape pod will easily fit in your hand. This baby can achieve a maximum wattage of 15 watts and a resistance range of between 0.05ohm and 3.0ohm. It also supports USB charging.

Another nice thing about this pod is its user-friendliness. You do not need to follow a complicated process to fill it up. Simply unscrew the mouthpiece, squeeze a few drops of vape juice into the top of your coil to prime it, and then fill up the Pole’s built-in tank. Allow the kit to stand for 10 to 15 minutes first to give the e-juice time to soak into the wick. Then you are ready to start vaping.

Smokly is currently offering the iJoy Pole at a sale price of $19.99, slashing off 5 bucks from its original price tag. Included in the kit are the iJoy Pole pod kit, a Pole-15 coil 1.0 ohm, a USB cable, a warranty card, and a user manual.

Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an experienced vaper, the iJoy Pole is a great choice for those looking for a compact MTL kit. I particularly love its user-friendly features and its coil ceramic technology.
