There’s nothing too special about the design of the Batpack mod as it is made to be a very simple vaporizer which caters to the new vapers or some advanced vapers that are looking for a very discreet mod. It is super compact and even smaller than some pod-style vaporizers on the market.

It has a very simple design that some might even mistake it for a credit card holder or case. It has no LED screen display or adjustment buttons. It only has a fire button on the side and an LED indicator on the top of the mod. On the back is a magnetic door that holds two AA batteries.

The kit actually includes two NiMH rechargeable batteries that have a capacity of 2100 mah and running at 1.2 volts each. Even though it comes with rechargeable AA batteries, you can also use normal AA batteries to power it and this is where the convenience part comes as you can buy AA batteries everywhere.

I know some vapers will still become skeptical about this type of device since most of us own 18650 batteries and some bigger 20700 and 21700 batteries but just the thought of having your TV remote batteries being used to power the Batpack in times of need or desperation makes me smile.

The Batpack has a maximum output of 1.85 volts it is equipped with the ECO technology which enables it to deliver a constant 1.85 volts all throughout until the battery dies. This technology is very efficient at making your battery last longer.

Joyetech even claims that if you use the included NiMH batteries, you can get up to 800 puffs from a full charge but of course, this is just a number and it always depends on your vaping habit. The atomizer included in the kit is the ECO D16 atomizer.

It is a very simple tank that uses a cartomizer style coil head called the BFHN. It has two small air holes on the top which makes this a mouth to lung device.

The Joyetech Batpack kit is available in 6 different color options. You can get it in green, gold, red/gold, black/blue, dark blue/pink and rainbow.

The ECO D16 tank atomizer comes with 2 BFHN coil heads that have a resistance of 0.5 ohm. The Batpack only has a low maximum constant output of 1.85 volts and in a regular wattage device, if you calculate it with the BFHN coil head’s resistance of 0.5, you will only get around 6.8 watts of power.

Because of the low output, it is not very surprising that the BFHN coil head is optimized for nicotine salt based e liquids or some high nicotine e liquids. You can still use regular low nicotine e liquids but you will only get the best vaping experience if you use the nicotine salt based e liquids due to the low power output.

Even though this device is not a cloud chucker, the flavor you will get on this device is outstanding. The Batpack is made to be a mouth to lung device which is perfect if you want that cigarette kind of drag.

One good aspect of the Joyetech Batpack is you can use any AA batteries to power it and the cool thing about Joyetech is that they even included two NiMH rechargeable batteries in the kit but you still need to have a good battery charger for it since the Batpack doesn’t have a micro USB port for charging.

I think they purposely did this to avoid the mistake of charging regular AA batteries in the mod which will result in a very bad thing.

Portability

Portability

The Joyetech Batpack is one of the most portable and compact devices on the market. With the DCO D16 tank atomizer installed, it is only 112.5 mm in height, 37 mm in width and 18 mm in thickness.

This is a perfect little vaping device to bring to work, parties and even traveling. You don’t even need to bring a battery charger since you can buy AA batteries anywhere you go.

Conclusion

The Joyetech Batpack is just like any other mouth to lung device but uses a different type of replaceable batteries. It might not for everyone since we are not used to using AA batteries for our vape mods but if you are a fan of tight and restrictive lung hits, you will be amazed by how it performs and it is a perfect device for those who are looking for a discreet vaporizer that they can bring anywhere.

If you are looking for something a good starter mod style vape check out the SMOK G150 and if you are just looking for the best check out the SMOK Procolor.
