What’s in the Box?
The iJOY Punk comes packaged in a really simple but functional clear plastic tube, allowing you to see the Punk disposable inside. There are color coded rubber bungs at the top and bottom of the tube that match with the flavor inside. On the top bung there’s also a small rubber spike that fits into the mouthpiece and stops any rattle during transit.
On the front of the tube you’ll find a typical nicotine warning along with the iJOY logo and the name of the flavor. Just under the flavor name you’ll also see the number of available puffs and the e-juice capacity.
On the back of the tube there are several more warnings along with iJOY’s contact information. There’s also a QR code which you can scan to verify the Punk disposable you’ve purchased is genuine.
The only information I was surprised not to see on the packaging (or on the disposable itself), is the nicotine strength of the e-juice. It would also be handy if the PG/VG ratio was listed on the packaging. While not essential it’s really useful for those who suffer with PG Intolerance.
iJOY Punk | Design and Appearance
The iJOY Punk has a stylish cylindrical shape with a chunkier diameter than most disposables out there. In terms of the dimensions the Punk measures in at 106mm high with a diameter of 26.5mm. It gives it the look and feel of a short, stubby cigar and makes for a really comfortable hold.
With a weight of 65g the Punk also feels solid and well-built without feeling cumbersome. While I didn’t drop any of them during my time testing, the light Polycarbonate body feels sturdy and gave me the impression it can take a fair beating!
This smooth Polycarbonate shell encompasses the entire body with only a stainless steel ring three quarters of the way up the body to break things up. Printed onto the colored ring is the iJOY logo and at the bottom of the tube you’ll see the flavor name.
Now while it’s certainly bigger than a lot of the disposables we’ve reviewed, it’s by no means bulky. In fact, I frequently carried around 2 or 3 Punk disposables in my pocket without really even noticing. The fact there’s a 1200 mAh (non-rechargable) battery and a whopping 12ml of e-liquid inside makes the reasonable weight and size all the more surprising!
One of the coolest things about the Punk disposable is also the sticker bomb design that wraps around the entire device. There are 6 different sticker bomb designs throughout the 25 flavor range and the color of each design is altered to match the different flavors.
On the space themed design there are pictures of rockets, asteroids, planets and astronauts. On another of the themes you can see the faces of Bart Simpson and Elmo staring back at you! My personal favorite is an image of E.T riding a skateboard! It’s a nice change from the typical style we see and gives the Punk a more premium vibe.
Because the artwork and core of the Punk device are encased in a Polycarbonate coating it also gives the device a beautiful transparent sheen that works perfectly alongside the powerful LED light. When you draw on the Punk the LED on the base shines up along the entire body of the vape.
This feature really comes into its own when you draw on the Punk in darker surroundings. Forgoing the usual mobile phone flashlight, I frequently used the Punk to light the way during late night stumbles to the bathroom.
While the light up feature and funky, retro artwork are minor design points, they show the care and attention that’s gone into the design of the Punk. Too often it feels like vape companies churn out carbon copies of the same old design, but the Punk feels like a refreshing and rebellious change of pace.
Where this disposable really starts to shine though is in the practical design. As an auto-draw device there are no buttons to speak of, you simply draw on the mouthpiece to activate the coil. I found the auto-draw worked flawlessly and was super responsive across all 5 of the Punks I tested.
To make things even simpler, the Punk is a non-rechargeable device meaning there’s no charge port located on the body. The internal 1200 mAh battery provides enough power to vape for several days (more on this in the performance section). This makes it an incredibly simple and straight-forward vape to use and ideal for beginners.
As well as this, the shape of the Punk is designed in such a way as to eliminate any e-juice seepage. While I’ve heard this plenty of times before, I was pleasantly surprised that not a single of the 5 Punks I received leaked…. not so much as a drop of e-juice!
Another thing I loved was the mouthpiece. As a mouth-to-lung (MTL) vape the Punk has a semi-restrictive airflow with a tight but comfortable draw. The shape of the mouthpiece bulges out ever so slightly at the end which creates the perfect lip for this kind of draw. It reminded me of the pull on a cigarette, making the Punk perfect for those who are new to vaping.
Overall, I was really impressed with the design. The Punk is stylish and funky and stands out from the crowd. The light up body is quirky, and the Polycarbonate shell makes for a really comfortable smooth hold. The airflow and mouthpiece combine to create a fantastic draw and the design really does eliminate all leaks!
iJOY Punk | Performance
When it comes to the performance of the iJOY Punk things remain just as positive.
Probably the most impressive thing about the performance is the flavor, provided in part by the second-generation 1.1ohm mesh coil inside. It operates at 11W which is just enough to provide a deep satisfying draw.
Throughout the lifespan of each Punk I tested the flavor remained as tasty and delicious as the very first puff. There were no dry or burnt hits and the mesh coil delivered flavorful draws until the very last second. As well as this the 1200 mAh battery in each of the Punks I tried ran out before the e-juice. Again this meant there were no cottony dry hits in the final moments.
This is actually really unusual in a disposable vape and reflects again how iJOY have designed the Punk to provide the optimum vaping experience.
In terms of battery life the Punk also performed reasonably well. As a heavy vaper there aren’t many occasions during the day when I don’t have my vape pressed to my lips. Despite heavy use, each of the Punks I tested lasted for a minimum of 4 days.
At my best guess I’d estimate that a light-medium vaper would get around a full week’s worth of vaping time from a Punk. Considering that it doesn’t require any recharges during this time, it’s an incredibly convenient vape to use.
When the Punk does come to the end of its life the bright LED on the bottom flashes 10 times in quick succession. Quick tip though… make sure to puff the Punk several more times after the LED first flashes for battery cut-off. I found each one gave out several more puffs before it completely died.
While the draw and the amount of vapor does drop off right at the very end, this is only for the final dozen puffs before it completely runs out. Up until this point the Punk delivers consistently great draws that produce thick, flavorful vapor.
It doesn’t produce quite as much vapor as your typical mod and tank setup but it’s definitely more of a cloud machine than the majority of disposables available.
The Punk also delivers an excellent throat kick and the nicotine delivery worked perfectly. The 5 I vaped on were 50mg/ml nicotine strength which were personally a little too strong for me. However, iJoy do provide the Punk in a 30mg/ml nicotine strength as well.
What really surprised me while using the Punk is that there’s really nothing negative to pick out. The MTL draw and airflow were excellent and the auto-draw worked flawlessly. The battery life was great and the vapor and flavor produced by the mesh coil were absolutely superb!
iJOY Punk | Flavors
Another compelling reason to try the Punk disposable is the incredibly delicious and varied flavor range available. With 25 flavors currently in the range there’s a huge variety of choice to suit every vapers preference.
Of the five flavors I personally tried it’s also clear that iJOY have put a great amount of time and effort into creating unique palettes that burst with flavor.
I was lucky enough to receive the following five to try:
- Lush Ice
- Strawberry Ice
- Sunny Grape
- Strawberry Kiwi
- White Gummy
I’ll share my thoughts on each of these flavors below along with a complete list of the iJOY Punk flavor range at the end.
The Lush Ice was a mouth-watering explosion of fruity flavor with a cooling burst of icy freshness on the inhale.
On the exhale the fruity tones really pick up and a strong, sweet watermelon bursts through. I could swear I also picked up on some other fruity tones…. possibly strawberry.
All in all, the Lush Ice is an absolutely delicious fruity flavor with a refreshing icy kick to boot! Definitely a flavor I’d happily vape again.
For me this flavor was absolutely perfect! There’s a strong sweet strawberry taste that bursts with flavor on the inhale followed by a very subtle and understated icy freshness on the exhale. All too many times I’ve found a perfectly good flavor spoiled by an over-abundance of the ice taste.
With iJoy’s Strawberry Ice there’s a soft coolness that really compliments the strawberry and doesn’t take away from the overall fruitiness of the flavor. It’s easily one of the best strawberry flavors I’ve tried and one I’ll be sure to buy again soon!
In my experience, grape flavors are really tricky to get right.
Usually I find grape flavors taste a little artificial and sickly. With that being said, iJOY have done a fantastic job with their version!
The grape is just the right amount of sweet without being too overpowering. It’s actually a really refreshing taste and perfect for a hot summer’s day. While it’s not a personal favorite, the Sunny Grape is another excellent flavor!
My personal favorite of the 5 flavors I tried, the Strawberry Kiwi is a fruity cocktail mix that absolutely bursts with sweet, juicy flavors! For me iJOY completely nailed an almost perfect blend between the strawberry and kiwi flavors.
There’s a sweet, ripe strawberry taste on the inhale that really sets the tastebuds tingling. Then there’s an equally delicious kiwi flavor that really comes into the mix on the exhale. This flavor was easily an all-day vape for me and another one that’s bound to find its way into my basket soon!
The White Gummy flavor was a bit of a surprise for me. I think I expected a much sweeter, almost candy-like flavor, purely based on the name. Instead, White Gummy bursts with a really refreshing fruity peach taste.
There’s also an undertone of gummy bear flavor that blends really nicely with the peach. It results in a nice, sweet fruity taste that isn’t overpowering. At the risk of sounding like a broken record this was another superb flavor and one I’d happily vape all day.
iJOY Punk Flavor Range
Below is a complete list of all 25 flavors currently in the Punk disposable range:
Mango Passion Fruit / Mango Mango / White Gummy / Melon Mint / Guava Kiwi / Super Mint / Apple Juice / Lush Ice / Sunny Grape / Rainbow Candy / Summer Coconut / Peach Plum / Strawberry Ice / Strawberry Kiwi / Milk Tea Ice / Peach Soda / Watermelon Bubble Gum / Black Dragon Ice / Triple Berry Ice / Sweet Taro / Cherry Pineapple / Strawberry Daquiri / Energy Drink / Orange Ice Cream / Lychee Ice.
Overall I was really impressed with the flavors I tried. While I only sampled 5 of the flavors it’s clear the e-juice inside the Punk disposable is premium and that a great deal of time and effort has gone into crafting them.
My personal favorites were the Strawberry Kiwi and the Strawberry Ice, both of which absolutely explode with flavor!
iJOY Punk | Price
At the time of writing the iJOY Punk is a relatively new disposable and not readily available online. It comes with a recommended retail price of $19.99 though which puts it at the higher end for a disposable vape.
With that being said, the unique design, amazing performance and the incredible flavors really set the Punk apart from the majority of the competition. On top of this the Punk would probably last the average vaper around a full week. The $19.99 price tag still pales in comparison to the cost of smoking over a full week!
Even compared to popular single-day disposables the Punk works out much cheaper over the long run. As well as this I’m sure there’ll be online shops offering great discounts on the Punk in the near future so it’s worth keeping your eyes open.
Currently there are no retailers we can recommend if you want to buy yourself some Punk disposables but check back with us soon. We’ll update this review as soon as it gets stocked.
