There is nothing unique or special with the iJoy Captain PD270’s design as there are a lot of mods that have this type of form factor and style but it still looks really good. I guess iJoy really knows what build and design works and they know what vapers like.

The Captain PD270 has a big fire button on the side and on the front is a beautifully put together glass-like material that houses the 0.96 inch LED screen display. Also on the front are the up and down buttons and a micro USB port for charging and firmware upgrade.

On both sides of the mod are durable carbon fiber design stickers and on the back is a resin panel with an artistic color design. There are a lot of things going on with the Captain PD270’s design especially the carbon fiber sides and the back resin panel but they blend so well it actually looks cool.

On the bottom of the mod is the sliding battery door that holds two 20700 batteries which are included in the kit and it can also be powered by two 18650 batteries with the use of the included battery adapter. The iJoy PD270 has a maximum output of 234 watts and feature options such as temperature control, TCR and custom power curves.

The tank included in the kit is the Captain S Subohm tank. The Captain S tank is 25 mm in diameter and has an e liquid capacity of 4 ml. It features a super convenient sliding top fill design and has dual adjustable airflow.

The unique aspect of the Captain S tank is that it uses thread-less coil heads to make it easier to install and replace since you just have to unscrew the base from the tank and pull the coil head out or vice versa.

Overall, I really like the build quality and design of the Captain PD270 but it would be a lot nicer in my opinion if the 510 connection is centered. The iJoy Captain PD270 kit is available in 6 different colors but the only difference is going to be on the metal trims and the color of the Captain S tank.

All color variants will all have the same carbon fiber sides and same resin panel design on the back. You can get the Captain PD270 kit in black, gun metal, red, blue, yellow and rainbow.

Vapor Quality

The iJoy Captain S Subohm tank atomizer comes with two coil heads. Pre-installed is called the CA2 and included is the CA3. The CA2 coil head has a resistance of 0.3 ohm and is rated to use between 60 watts to 80 watts. The CA3 coil has a resistance of 0.25 ohm and is rated to use between 60 watts to 100 watts.

Both coil heads are practically the same as they both have the same coil build inside and a very little difference in resistance. You can expect that they will both perform the almost the same even though they still have different resistances and ratings.

The flavor and vapor production are excellent though and all I can honestly say that the iJoy Captain S tank is one of the best tanks on the market. This is due to the fact that the Captain S is designed uniquely.

The base of the Captain S has a unique internal groove design that reduces the heat transmission from the coil to the shaft which will give you a smoother airflow and better flavor.

Versatility

Due to the size of the iJoy Captain PD270, it can accommodate any atomizers up to 30 mm in diameter with no overhang. The iJoy Captain’s  tank is also compatible with any 810 drip tips and it has an included 510 drip adapter for you’re the 510 drip tip lovers out there but the most important feature of the Captain PD270 is its compatibility with 2 battery sizes.

Since 20700 batteries are hard to find in most vape shops, you can always use the more common 18650 batteries to power this bad boy.

Portability

Portability

The iJoy Captain PD270 is a bulky device due to its native support for dual 20700 batteries. With the Captain S tank on, it is 148.4 mm in height, 48 mm in width and 32 mm in thickness.

The good thing about it though is that it has a micro USB port so if you want to bring it out, you don’t have to bring a battery charger or extra set of batteries.
