Joyetech has hit the market running with its very first high-wattage mod device, with a unit that is rated at 150 watts. It’s called the Cuboid, and it has a lot of people talking about whether or not the manufacturer achieved its goals with this product offering. In this Joyetech Cuboid review, we’ll take a look at just what they managed to bring to market, and try to determine whether this truly is the company’s best e cig offering to date.
What is it?
Put simply, this is a 150W mod that offers a price right around that $50 sweet spot. The device itself has a stainless steel exterior, and boasts an advanced chip set that can be upgraded to 200W. It offers complete control over temperature and output, which should come as a nice surprise to customization enthusiasts who are looking for a spectacular sub-ohm experience. It is clear that Joyetech’s intent was for this product to serve as a standard bearer for the company, as great attention appears to have been given to every detail.

How’s it Look?
There has been some criticism from some quarters that the aesthetics on this device are somewhat less than should be expected. Most of that comes from people who are focused on that high-tech, busy look that so many of today’s technological products seem to strive to achieve. In this case, the Cuboid seems content to live up to the Spartan simplicity suggested by its name, and opts instead for a sleek, toned-down exterior that belies the sophisticated features its housing conceals.
There is, of course, a clear and attractive display right on the unit’s front face, and easily accessible connector and fire button. The left side features a USB port that is compatible with any micro-USB connector. The bottom of the mod housing contains the panel that covers the two 18650 batteries that power the device.
In addition to that large display screen mentioned above – a display that actually shows you battery information about each of the two 18650 batteries inside the device, the Cuboid offers a variety of other features for vaping enthusiasts. The settings are easily accessible just by clicking through the fire button three times, and once you’ve gained access to them you will find a whole host of customizations you can make. You can change the mode, the amount of wattage, and the temperature.
That greater degree of control, coupled with the 150 watts of power the device provides, adds up to some serious vaping potential! Temperature control is a major factor for any serious vapers, and this mod has exactly the type of total control you need. You can choose between three modes: stainless, steel, nickel, and titanium, and select temperatures ranging from between 200 and 600 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also choose your own wires and use customized temperature settings if you wish.
The device also has a number of built-in safeguards to protect itself and you from a variety of potential hazards. These include everything from a short circuit to an imbalanced battery, charging issues, or an Over Draw. That kind of high-tech protection alone makes the $50 price tag seem tame when compared to similarly-priced devices. Even the hinged battery door is a departure from the company’s other products, offering greater security than ever before.
Vaping with the Cuboid
Of course, a sleek design and high-tech features don’t automatically translate to great performance, do they? Well, there is good news on that front as well. While most users have yet to note any great leap in quality with the current chip setup, the fact is that this device performs almost exactly as you would expect. It provides a huge volume of vapor that perfectly captures the flavor of your e-liquid. That tremendous control over power and temperature ensures that you are able to get precisely the type of hits you’re looking for, with the consistency you need.
The Bottom Line…
It’s sometimes easy to review a product that does exactly what its manufacturers advertise it as doing and walk away feeling as though that’s somehow not enough. This is not one of those times. The fact is that the Joyetech Cuboid is almost exactly what its makers claim it to be. However, since the company’s claims were somewhat lofty to begin with, it should be considered an achievement in excellence just to meet the advertised standards. The bottom line is simple: if you’re looking for a high-tech mod that offers the type of power and control you need for your vaping pleasure, the Cuboid will not disappoint!
