What the hell happened to Joyetech?
They were one of the best makers of small form box mods in the 2015 to 2017?

What went wrong with the company making this;



And hit rock bottom hard to resorting to making this abomination;

Everyone is trying to find their niche for a sustainable business. Not all succeed. Sadly this has very little to do with quality.

You need to go deeper, the design was so good, so it made a whole family of devices built on that platform (Nuvoton MCU).



It was like IBM PC AT of box mod world.

JoyeWisLeaf is all one company, and they made each of their brand names cover distinct parts of the spectrum. At one time, the three names were mostly steps up the price ladder - Eleaf was at the low end, but had rebuildable atomizers. Joyetech was firmly in the middle; good build quality and value for the money. Wismec had their higher end, and did volume manufacturing for outside brands (like the VapeForward VaporFlask models). With the new organisation, Joyetech kind of got the short end of the stick, being mostly starter kit sticks, AIOs, and pod systems. "Normal" vape gear went to Eleaf. Wismec got the weird experimental stuff, which is likely the reason Jaybo left the joint. I mean, who in their right mind would want to have their name associated with a "mod" that's mostly a bad semi-waterproof Bluetooth speaker?

Still have and use one of the black eVics, the one with the clock on their screen. Purchased 3-4 others but long ago lost their magnets, dropped them, etc.


I have circled right back to using single battery 18650 mods after a few years of single batt 21700 but in the end prefer the lighter/smaller 18650. Those eVics would work again for me today.

Definitely one of the more inexpensive mods that was an all time favourite of mine. Surprises me still that these companies don't do a second run years later. 🥺

I still have my OG Pico and VTC Dual/Mini, I love both because they are the opposite of each other when it comes to the form factor.

OG Pico is stout and very light, while the Dual/Mini convertible is heavy-slim-tall like a tree.

Good old days when box mods were box shaped and not some random edge lord shape mod.
