Known for the famous eGo AIO kit, I wonder if the new device from Joyetech will still stand out from the rest of its competition. The Joyetech Exceed Grip has the traditional boxy look, but it is compact and light enough to be carried around.
With the number of cigarette-quitters increasing by the day, I wonder if Joyetech can cater to their needs. Oh well, you need to find that out through my review below.

Once you open your package, you will notice the two mismatched panels featured on the device. On Joyetech’s website, there are a number of colors, designs, and patterns to choose from — for the minimalist or artistic at hearts.
The kit comes with two pods, and each boasts of its draw styles and vape juice compatibilities. The first pod cartridge uses 0.4ohm replaceable mesh coils that can accommodate your usual freebase nicotine vape liquids and offer tight direct lung draws. It can hold up to 4.5 mL of vape juice.
The second pod is a conventional pod system with built-in and non-removable 0.8ohm mesh coil. It is designed for your high nic salt vape liquid cravings with mouth to lung (MTL) draws. It can hold up to 3.5 mL of e-juice. However, for a device that considers MTL as its forte, I think the draw a bit loose.
Perhaps I have seen some of these features on others or a variation of them, but what got my attention is its dry burn protection technology. For a small vape pod with only a size of 74 × 40 × 21 mm, you would think this is just some basic or ordinary device that can help you get through your day.
Well, Joyetech boasts that such technology is capable of throttling temperature to make sure you do not experience dry hits. I tried… and yes, it worked!
Under the hood, the Exceed vape pod has a large battery for a small device at 1000 mAh. If you combine its low constant output voltage at 5V, you will less likely worry about recharging from time to time. Joyetech Exceed Grip fires between 10 and 13 watts, depending on the pod you use.
You can find a battery life indicator that can help you check on the status of your battery level. A white light indicates the battery percentage is between 20% and 100%. A red light means that the battery level is below 20% and that you need to recharge soon.
Aside from indicating your battery status, the light also serves as your signal for the dry burn protection. Take note though that this feature is only compatible with the traditional pod that uses a built-in 0.8ohm mesh coil.
If the device senses that the wick is too dry, the light indicator will flash the red light twice before the power is cut down.
The pod you opt to use has a significant impact on the performance of this device. I think you can experience better and consistent performance if you use the traditional one. It also has better longevity. But overall, both pod cartridges produce a decent flavor and excellent cloud production.
Overall, I think the Joyetech Exceed Grip is a good starter kit or for those who have recently cut cigarette use. The traditional pod worked well, and the dry burn protection technology was true. I think that its replaceable pods need some improvements. Also, for a small kit that offers two types of draws, I think its price is fair enough. Just pair both cartridges with a delicious freebase and nic salt vape juices, and you are good to go.
