Product Review: EXO Rebuildable Tank From

The EXO RTA Tank comes with a great amount of vape goodies: 2 decks (single and dual coil configurations), 2 tanks (2ml and 6ml), extra 2ml glass tank, 3 twisted wire coils, nuts, cotton, screwdriver, o-rings, and a nice squat drip tip cover.

The EXO RTA by iJoy Product Review

There are a few products I have received which I haven’t had the chance to post a review about; as a prelude to my future product reviews to come, I’d like to start it off with a great RTA that gives you a lot for it’s price.

Here’s the EXO RTA by iJoy which I got from and I love this tank!

iJoy does a wonderful job in putting the EXO together when it comes to build, performance, flavor and vapor production, and versatility. I can’t really compare it to any other tank out in the market right now.

So let’s dive down and get to to know the EXO RTA a little better with this review I did for all of you.


2ml configuration
2ml configuration

First Impressions

Right when I open the box, I’m surprised at how much the EXO RTA has. It’s like a tank kit, your basically getting 2 tanks for the price of one. You are getting A LOT for the price!

The EXO comes with 4 different configurations: a 2ml and 6ml juice capacity tank, and a dual and single coil deck. It’s a great tank for vapers who like to tinker with their set ups and if you think 2ml isn’t enough, then the changeable 6ml tank should be more than enough for you to enjoy your favorite all day e-juice.

6ml configuration

a very well-made, good quality tank

iJoy sure did not cut corners when they made the EXO RTA. It’s a stout, 25mm wide tank with juice flow control which can handle thick, high VG juice for all you cloud chasers out there. Adjustment on the airflow is smooth and I had no problems moving it around.

The draw on this tank is so smooth and just like the OBS Engine Tank, does not heat up even while chain vaping. It’s perfect for a vaper like me who likes tanking long lung hits.

Dual coil deck 

great quality when it comes to it’s build

Both decks (dual and single) are well-made to suit thick gauge wires. The posts on the dual coil set up are secured well, and the intake air holes sit right under the coils.

The single coil deck’s air intake shot right from the side of the coil. When I was testing them out, they both performed very well when it came to flavor and vapor production. Both decks use a direct contact connector, so it would not be a good idea to use the EXO RTA on hybrid mods for obvious safety reasons.

Super easy dual coil set-up

Very user-friendly when it comes to coil building

Building on these decks were very easy for me. I installed the stock coils onto both of the decks in a matter of minutes. Not bad for someone who hasn’t tried rebuildable tanks in a couple of months. I’ve been vaping on disposable atomizer tanks for a while now, and I’m not a master coil builder. My coil building skills are a bit rusty, but If I can do it, I’m pretty sure most of you out there can too, probably even better.

Single coil deck

Flavor and vapor production is off the charts

The decks the EXO RTA comes with is perfect for thick, twisted wire. The big chimney chamber gives your twisted wire set-ups lots of ample room for you to work with. The stock coil that it comes with measures at 0.4 ohms, and I’m pretty sure the EXO can handle lower resistances if that’s what you prefer.

Even in single coil configuration, the EXO puts out a lot of vapor, A LOT. I had a really good time blowing humongous clouds of vapor with ease using this tank. The big vapor production brings the flavor of any e-liquid to life. It truly is a sub-ohm tank.

Cottoned-up and ready to vape

no leaks or gurgling with the exo rta

One think I hate is a leaky tank. I had no problems with the EXO RTA whatsoever in having to worry about the tank leaking on me. I vaped it sideways, left it lying down. The tank still stays bone dry on the outside.

You also don’t have to worry about it gurgling or getting flooded while filling it with e-liquid. I tried refilling it with the juice holes open and none of the juice ever leaked out on me.

Top juice holes make it easy to refill



Even if the EXO RTA looks like a complex tank with lots of features, I found it to be pretty easy to use. For refilling, all you have to do is unscrew the top. The juice holes are big and you won’t have problems using a typical glass dripper.

I heard some people had problems unscrewing the top off the EXO because they would end up unscrewing the glass tank as well and the juice would just spill all over their hands. I’ve never had that kind of problem using the EXO probably because I’m a little more accustomed to these types of tanks, but just a word of caution for those who might run into this problem. Don’t screw the top on too tight.

The drip tip it uses is perfect for the EXO as it brings out the flavor a lot, but it also is replaceable in case you would like to slap on another drip tip.

any cons?

For me, the only con I found with the EXO RTA is it goes through juice real quick, especially when using the 2ml tank. I could go through the whole tank in a matter of minutes especially while I’m vaping on e-juice that I really like. The 2ml configuration is not enough to get you through the whole day especially if you vape like me. Keep a bottle of e-liquid handy to keep you going is my suggestion if you are going to use the EXO.

final thoughts

All in all, I think the EXO is a wonderful tank that gives it’s user a lot of options. The build and performance is great, and I like the fact that you can change the capacity and coil configuration on the EXO without having to buy another tank.

I definitely think it’s a worthy buy for RTA lovers and vapers who are looking for a really good sub-ohm tank that produces a lot of vapor and gives great flavor!

Whether you prefer big, bulky mods or sleek, stealth vapes, this list will give you a better idea for new mods to buy in 2017.

Vapor Shark SwitchBox RX 75 Watt TC Box Mod

This is probably the most affordable Vapor Shark unit you will find. This Vapor Shark/Wismec collaboration is a near perfect combination of quality and affordability.

It uses the high quality and ergonomic Switch body which was also used in the DNA 75 box mod, but also uses a more affordable Wismec RX75 chip. The front and back panels are also replaceable.

It can handle resistance from 0.1 to 3.5 ohms. It’s new OLED display shows you your output mode, temperature, power, voltage, current, and battery life.

It’s a sleek but powerful device that should win the hearts of vapers who like a more concealed set-up they can bring along with them wherever they go.


Smoant RABOX Smart Mechanical Box Mod

The RABOX smart mechanical box mod is a mod in it’s own league both in design and performance. First off, you don’t see that many mech mods coming out due to a couple of reasons, but Smoant has intelligently bypassed all these problems with safety features installed in this unit.

The RABOX has a protection suite that includes low battery, resistance, over heating, and over use protections which should eliminate all fears of those who wanted to try a true mechanical mod.

It also utilizes a two mode Smart Mechanical Output that can be switched between a 5V Constant Output in High mode, or a traditional Direct Voltage Based Output based on battery state in Soft mode.

The RABOX is powered by an internal rechargeable 3300 mAh Lithium Polymer battery and can easily power most atomizers with it’s 0.10 ohm low resistance.

Personally, I think it’s a great looking mod that will draw attention and compliments from others.

5 Tips On How To Blow Bigger Clouds

5 Tips To Become A Cloud Chaser!

When I first started vaping, I was fascinated by the videos I would see online of other vapers blowing superhuman clouds of vapor like it was nothing!

“How do they do that?” Something I would ask myself as I watched in amazement.

The more I watched “cloud chasing” videos, the more I wanted to do it myself.

This is for all the newbie vapers who want tips on how to generate more vapor production.

A word of caution though, please, and I say this with all sincerity, DO NOT BLOW BIG CLOUDS OUT IN PUBLIC! Our community has a bad reputation already, mostly because of misinformation, but don’t add more heat by being a douchebag. Most people (non-vapers and non-smokers) HATE seeing big clouds of vapor being blown especially in their direction.

Be considerate of others. Vaping is to get off cigarettes, not to show off in public. It is also not a way to give you self-gratification and a feeling of superiority over others and other vapers. Just because you can blow big clouds doesn’t make you a “better” vaper. We are all equal in this community. We are all overcoming years of addiction to cigarettes.

If you vape just to look cool, to look “in,” or to get attention, do us and yourself a favor, throw your vape away or give it to someone who really needs it.

That being said, here are 5 tips on how blow bigger clouds of vapor:



As smokers, we have become used to the mouth-to-lung hit, where we inhale into our mouth, then to our lungs, and exhale.

The problem with that in regards to blowing bigger clouds is most of the vapor dissipates in your mouth, leaving fewer vapor once you exhale.

Cloud chasers inhale directly to their lungs, getting a much bigger vacuum to get more vapor.

If you aren’t used to this type of inhale, you will cough, but eventually will get over it. If you do keep coughing, don’t force yourself. It just means that this isn’t for you, stick to mouth-to-lung.



Back when I started vaping, I had to watch tutorials on how to wrap my coils on my atomizer, how to drill out holes, etc.

Lucky for you guys, sub-ohm vaping is easily available. Not only that, most tanks out now are catered to sub-ohm vapers. Pretty much anything with “sub-ohm” attached to it will give you bigger clouds. Any atomizer that reads 0.5 ohms and below will give you more cloud production.


The rule here is, the bigger your air holes, the more vapor you will suck in. Very simple.

If you like your air holes tight, you won’t be getting as much vapor as you could. Open those babies up!

Only downside is it sort of affects the flavor. But hey, you’ll be getting bigger clouds in exchange.



If you want to get more technical about getting more vapor production, there are tons of videos on the internet that will show you step-by-step on how to make vapor-chucking builds.

More importantly though, if you do choose to learn how to build your own coils, make sure you get a very thorough understanding of the precautions that come with coil building. Too many people you see on the news having their mods blow up in their pocket or hands, don’t be one of them!



If you still are using a vape pen and want to blow bigger clouds, you’re doing it wrong. You’ll need something big enough to power the low resistance atomizer you have.

Buy a mod, a dual 18650 mod or any box mod will be good enough.

So there you are, 5 tips on how to blow bigger clouds. You are now a self-taught cloud chaser.

With bigger clouds come bigger responsibility. Be considerate to others and make sure you know the safety measures that come with cloud chasing.
