Review: Joyetech Teros
True to the stealthy roots of this form factor, the Joyetech Teros exemplifies a truly minimalist design with an almost absolute lack of any branding besides the Teros logo etched in an obscure font. The sleek and streamlined form factor makes the Joyetech Teros look like it jumped straight out of the props room of your average sci-fi flick.
The lack of any etching or grooves on the device adds further to the mods aesthetic and should definitely please vapers who are looking for a non-descript device to vape in complete anonymity.
Just like every all-in-one pod-style device, the Joyetech Teros lacks an LED display and instead make use of a simple LED light to effectively convey the device’s current status. A micro USB port is located off the side which is convenient for on-the-go charging and in my opinion, is a much more favorable approach compared to the proprietary charging unit that the Pax Juul uses.
Another unique highlight of the Joyetech Teros are the photochromatic and thermochromatic finishes used. What this means is your chosen colorway of white will eventually turn into a lighter shade of pink when exposed to heat and/or sunlight. If you’re not a fan of these (they’re pretty neat though) the classic black or stainless steel colorways are still a very viable option.
The Joyetech Teros also lacks any buttons which would be otherwise used to fire the mod and instead opts for an air-activated sensor that automatically fires the device when taking a puff. This is always a nice touch as it more closely emulated the handfeel of an actual cigarette.
The good news is that the Joyetech Teros sports a marginally higher firing output compared to smaller devices such as the Juul. With performance landing close to the level of the Aspire Breeze, that alone should already make it a worthwhile competitor in an increasingly flooding market.
One thing to note however is that the Joyetech uses a 0.5-ohm coil housed in the pod. This means that the vape you’re going to get out of this will be more akin to a direct lung vape instead of a mouth-to-lung type so make careful consideration of that before deciding to pick this kit up.
Airflow feels slightly open and is a far cry from the relatively restrictive airflow setup found on the Pax Juul. This results in an incomparably relaxed vaping experience when matched up against the more intense vapor produced by the Juul.
Like every AIO pod-style device, the Joyetech Teros also sports a fixed airflow design so there’s no option to change it up in case you find the airflow too loose or airy.
Thanks to the barebones operation on the Joyetech Teros, the mod doesn’t really have anything going for it in terms of variety when it comes to vaping. The fixed output of the Joyetech Teros means that you’re not going to find common features such as variable wattage, temperature control, or any sort of fancy TCR or pre-heat functionality in this kit.
Then again, currently there are no existing devices in this form factor or size category that offer any of these features anyway, so you’re not giving up anything really if you decide to go with this particular device.
Like most fixed output devices, the intensity of your vaping experience is largely dependent on the concentration level of the e-liquid you use to fill the tank.
Ease of Use
Just like the simple aesthetics of the Joyetech Teros implies, basic operation of this mod is as easy and straightforward as it comes. Filling up the 2ml tank is a bit easier compared to other designs as though as the side filling port can be accessed without needing to pull the pod out which results in faster and easier refills on the go.
Vaping on the Joyetech Teros couldn’t be easier; simply take a puff and the device instantly fires. It’s quite reliable as well with practically zero firing delay and almost no ramp-up time.
It’s consistent to the point that misfires have been virtually non-existent so far with the 2 weeks I’ve had to test it.
With the entirety of the kit measuring out to a meager 90.0*29.0*12.0mm and an outstanding total weight of only 57.5, the Joyetech Teros ranks among the best AIO kits when it comes to overall ease of portability. The smooth streamlined design makes it exceedingly easy for the mod to slip in and out of your pocket so taking it around with you is simply a joy.
The internal 480mAh battery does the kit a huge favor as well giving it a big boost over similar devices such as the Pax Juul when it comes to lasting power.
A full charge can easily get the average vaper through an entire day of moderate use but power users might find the output to decrease in strength as the voltage eventually tapers down along with the remaining battery life. Charging the kit up can be done in a jiffy though thanks to the easily accessed micro USB port off to the side of the moe.
Despite the similarity of the Joyetech Teros to already existing mods currently available in the market such as the Aspire Breeze, it still manages to turn up a few surprises hiding in its sleeve. The thermochromatic and photochromatic finishes are a nice touch that some vapers might be really into.
In terms of performance, the Joyetech Teros definitely isn’t lacking in way, shape, or form. The easy to activate air sensor makes operating the mod as intuitive as can be while the strong battery life definitely makes it a kit worthy of your consideration and this rings doubly true for beginners looking for their first device to bring them into the world of vaping.
If you’re looking for a secondary mod that works great for occasions where a full sized box mod just isn’t practical, the Joyetech Teros can easily fill that niche in your vaping related list of requirements.
