Joyetech Exceed Edge Introduction
Here in the UK, summer is just about to begin and the sun is starting to make an appearance! I am here today with my review of the Joyetech Exceed Edge Kit.
I have been a fan of Joyetech for a long time. For me, they are one of the more reliable manufacturers that have not cut corners at the expense of quality control. I was sent through the Exceed Edge Kit for review and this came at a time that I was in the market for a pod system.
Day-to-day I work in a school. In June I am away for a week on a residential trip and there is no way on earth I will get away with taking my usual set up. On top of that, there is no chance of me going a week, with 90 kids and no vape!! I started looking around at pod systems to use in addition to Nicotine Salt liquids. I have been using Nicotine Salt liquids in a couple of devices now over the past month, including the Exceed Edge and I am pleased to report great success.
I normally vape a 3mg liquid but with Nicotine Salts you can increase the MG. No nasty harshness, we would normally get from higher Nicotine MG. For the most part, I have been vaping 20mg liquids that give a hit of somewhere between a 3-6mg. But the feeling of the Nicotine appears to hit much faster than normal! However, I have not attempted a 20mg normal liquid to compare.
Joyetech Exceed Edge Packaging
The Exceed Edge comes packaged in a plastic tube that is transparent. Different to the normal type of packaging.
When you open the tube you have a cardboard divider separating the mod from the spares and instructions. You will find in the tube the following:

- Warranty card
- Warning card
- Spare parts
I received the Exceed Edge in a striking red colour. This is a very sleek and stylish little mod. It looks like a miniature set of hair clippers if I’m honest! That was my first impression. But as I looked past this, its appearance has to be a well made and ergonomic device. The paintwork was flawless and has remained so after a few weeks of use. Heres some geeky specs for you
- Size 26.5*110.0*20.0mm
- Weight 74.0g
- Output mode Direct output
- Cartridge capacity 2.0ml
- Battery capacity 650mAh
Very Quick Walkthrough
A quick walkthrough of the device from top to bottom. Starting up top you have your 2ml liquid pod, this is removable by pulling firmly. The coil is installed into this pod and is installed literally by pushing it into the coil housing and that is that! The mouthpiece is built into the pod.
The pod snaps back into place in the body. It will only go back in one way so there is no issue of incorrectly installing the pod. Below the pod is the body that contains the battery and internal chips. These chips control the power to the coil and give relevent warnings like when your voltage is too low. To the rear of the body, you will see an almost full-length firing bar that you can just squeeze to fire the mod.
To the base of the Exceed Edge, you will find a small LED liquid that glows as you fire and when the mod is in charge. Last but not least at the very bottom is the micro USB charging port.
Easy to use?
New to vaping or an experienced vaper. This is a no-frills device. No screens to worry about, batteries to change and a simple to replace coil system. Like other pod devices, I would only recommend using nicotine salt liquids for a good balance of nicotine hit and flavour.
Pod devices seem to be gaining a big fan base. At the recent UK Expo Vape Jam. I saw numerous people walking around with big fancy mods and a pod mod around their necks. Proof right there that pod mods are not just aimed at people just coming off cigarettes. Even hardcore vapers are embracing this type of device.
The Exceed proves itself to be a well-made and an easy-to-use device, that even someone who has just started vaping will find easy to use and continue to use. With the addition of salt liquids, success rates in long-term quitting are sure to increase. Refilling is very simple and liquid lasts much longer than I am used to! Thanks to this being an MTL device liquid is not guzzled through and battery life is more than acceptable for a days use.
How did I find it?
Surprisingly good in fact. I received this just before I also received the Mi-Pod Mod from Smoking Vapor and there are a couple of things that I like more about this. In fact, I am going to write another article very soon comparing my experiences between 3 pod mods so I will save the above for that article.
The exceed edge performs well, it just works. There is no real logic to using this, push the button and vape away. I was up and ready within a matter of minutes from priming the coil.
I expected the mouthpiece to feel kind of strange given that it was a flat shaped mouthpiece. The total opposite was, in fact, as I experienced. I do not know the word to describe something being ergonomic for the lips but you will kind of get my drift. It just sits between your lips and does not feel alien. The draw as you would expect is relatively tight but not as tight as I remember my first ego pen being.
The MTL coil heads have lasted very well. 3 weeks of using Elements salt liquids and the initial coil is still going strong. No burning taste, no dry hits and no diminishing flavour. The flavour itself is good at best. But you can definitely taste what you are vaping but do not expect to be pulling out intricate depths of the flavour. Personally, I do not think flavours to be designed to be too complex for these types of device.
Joyetech Exceed Edge Pros & Cons
Pros there are plenty I will list them to save boring you with another wall of text.
- Size – Very stealthy.
- Quality – Great paintwork.
- Battery Life – Gets me through the day!
- Mouthpiece – It just feels great
- Power – Seems to push a little more power than other devices.
- Looks great
On to the cons! Fortunately, there is only one and really it has nothing to do with the mod itself. I would have liked to have seen an extra pod in the tube with the spare coil to allow swapping of flavours. You can, however, purchase these separately if you wish.
