The Joyetech Widewick Kit is the latest budget pod kit which should hopefully appeal to the “disposable vape” market…

What To Expect From The Joyetech Widewick Kit…

As mentioned above this kit is nothing “fancy”! It is a basic pod kit to appeal to those who don’t want to spend a fortune or loads of effort on a vape.

widewick components

It basically consists of 3 main components, the battery (or mod) section, the pod (or tank) and the coil.

The battery section contains a 800mAh internal battery and a USB Type C port is provided for charging at up to 0.5A charge rate – which is not the fastest but again this is a very affordable kit. It also appears that no USB cable is included in the kit either – I suppose this keeps the costs down too.widewick poster

There are no buttons or adjustments – simply inhale on the mouthpiece to activate the auto draw firing system.widewick draw activation

An LED indicator is provided which (according to the manual) will light up when vaping or charging – but I am not sure if this displays the battery capacity remaining.

The pod sits in the top of the battery and is held in magnetically.

You can refill the pod with up to 2ml of your own e-liquid and the mouthpiece is removed to access the fill port. A childproof port version is also available.widewick filling

Looking at the coil now – this is the interesting bit! The coil is fixed into the pod so you cannot just replace the coil – you discard the pod – but this is a lot let hassle for a lot of people.

Joyetech have designed this with a very wide wick system (hence the name) to allow for better liquid absorption and making sure that the coil is always supplied with liquid to prevent dry hits.widewick function

They also claim this design gives less spit-back and also holds e-liquid better with less chance of leaking.widewick pod features

Within the mass of wicking is the 1.2ohm Mesh coil which should give great flavour and coil life.

Here is an introduction to the Widewick Kit from the Joyetech YouTube channel…

There are 7 colour options to choose from: Black Rubber, Red Rubber, Dark Blue Rubber, Romantic Purple Rubber, Sky Blue Rubber, Metallic Grey and Metallic Blue.

I wonder if the wide design of the pod will give better e-liquid flow? It sure is possible!

Plus this might convince some disposable vape users to trade up to something which gives better performance and a lot less waste.

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
