It’s easy to write off the iJoy Captain PD270 Kit at first glance. It doesn’t look as sleek or as compact as other mods at this price tier. However, bulkiness aside, the iJoy Captain PD270 is a beast. Features like its 234W maximum output and dual 20700 batteries will make you do a double-take on this powerful mod.

Looks aren’t everything, and this mod challenges you to ignore everything you know about sleek and stylish mods in favor of raw power. Is it a fair compromise? It’s more than fair, and as we dive into the details, you’ll see precisely why the iJoy Captain PD270 kit should be every veteran vaper’s trusty companion.

Build and Design

iJoy seems to know what works and what doesn’t as far as mod design is concerned. The Captain PD270 features a standard form factor that consists of a big mod with an off-centre connector. There’s nothing fancy about the build. It’s a look that’s a bit worn out.

Nevertheless, iJoy make up for it by giving the Captain PD270 an eye-catching design. The front consists of a 0.96-inch display screen, below are the up and down buttons and a micro USB port.

The fire button is positioned on the side and is big and tactile. Both sides of the mod are covered with carbon fiber stickers that come in various color schemes. The back consists of a resin panel that’s also been given an artistic finish.

Battery

The IJoy Captain PD270 features a sliding battery door at the bottom that houses two 20700 batteries. These are pretty rare to find, especially in vape shops, which is why the kit also includes a 18650 battery adapter. Thankfully, iJoy throws in a couple of 20700 batteries to get you started.

The batteries are, of course, replaceable, and can also be charged via the adapter. However, you can also juice them up straight from the mod by hooking it up to a micro USB cable.

What’s worth mentioning, iJoy supplies you with the first two 20700 batteries, each of which has a 3000mAh capacity. 6000mAh is plenty of juice for a day’s vaping, and with moderate use, this can last you well over two days. Charge time ranges from 4 to 6 hours depending on how you choose to charge the batteries –via the mod or battery adapter

IWEPAL Chipset

iJoy has fitted the Captain PD270 kit with a powerful IWEPAL chip. It delivers a maximum power output of 234W, which is incredible and equips the mod with several useful modes.
Thanks to this chip, the Captain PD270 comes with all the fancy bells and whistles you might need, be it.

TCR and temperature control or custom power curves (CCW and CCT).
It’s also lovely that the mod’s firmware is upgradeable via USB, giving you the ability to add new features to your mod over time.

Atomizer

The iJoy Captain PD270 kit comes with a 4 ml Captain S sub-ohm tank atomizer. The tank has a sliding top-fill mechanism that makes it easy to re-fill without leaks or spills. It measures 59.4 mm in length and 25 mm in diameter, but the kit can comfortably accommodate up to 30 mm atomizers without the slightest overhang.

One thing worth mentioning is that the tank has a unique groove chassis that’s designed to minimize heat transmission from the coil to the shaft. Keeping the heat in check contributes a great deal to the prevention of burnt hits. As a result, the airflow is a lot smoother, and the flavor quality is outstanding.

iJoy provides two coil heads with the Captain PD270 kit. They are essentially similar because they only have a 0.05-ohm difference in resistance. However, the CA3 coil has a higher output rating (100W max) than the CA2 coil head (80W max).

Both coil heads are unthreaded, and therefore easy to find replacements for. They are also better suited for use with high VG e-juice, so for the vapor lovers out there, take note of this mod.

The iJoy Captain PD270 kit excels in both flavor and vapor production. It is hands down one of the best mods in the market in that regard.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Stylish design
  • Compatible with both 20700 and 18650 batteries (comes with adapter)
  • Top-fill tank design

Final Verdict

It’s no secret that the iJoy Captain PD270 is one of the chunkiest devices you’ll come across. However, what it lacks in build and sleekness it more than makes up for with excellent performance and outstanding vapor and flavor production.

Features like a thread-less coil head design, compatibility with both 20700 and 18650 batteries, and the ability to use it with both 510 and 810-threaded drip tips give it an advantage over most mods.

Admittedly, this is not a mod that every beginner will want—it’s a bit overpowered for a novice. But for the average vaper and veterans, this beast of a mod is definitely worth your consideration.
