eLeaf iJust S Reviewed
If the vaping industry wasn’t about to go into a long lasting freeze in the United States I would say something clever like, “Is the Box Mod Fad Over?” – Of course, it certainly looked like it was heading that way, what with the recent introductions of tube-shaped vaporizers from eLeaf, Joyetech, VaporFi, ProVape, and others. Maybe it will still happen in countries where manufacturers won’t have to pony up a million dollars to get it on the market, but here in the US, the eLeaf iJust S will be the last iJust for quite some time…. So, let’s take a look.
The iJust S
At just $32.95 at Element Vape this fantastic vaporizer and sub-ohm tank is the best deal going right now. There is so much to like about it that it’s hard to know where to begin. So, I’ll start off by saying that our Publisher’s wife, after getting her iJust S, dropped all her box mods into the Spinfuel stockroom and told us “This is it. My long search is over”, and she meant it.
This All-In-One vaporizer is equipped with a rechargeable 3000-mAh battery (look at yesterday’s eVic Basic review and the 1500-mAh battery), a 4mL top-fill tank, and 1amp charging. The iJust S is the solution to a grab and go vaporizer problem, providing a gorgeous vape of pure flavor and tons of vapor.
The eLeaf iJust S Starter Kit is the epitome of the iJust platform, with an upgraded the body and ample battery life to last most vapers all day. The iJust S Starter Kit utilizes a direct output voltage-based system, correlating the battery to the output voltage to bring about a consistent power curve. In simple English, it means that the voltage is always consistent to the atomizer, supplying just the right amount to create one delicious vape.
The iJust S is wider than earlier versions, a full 24.5mm in diameter, and the body is made to be durable and long-lasting. Just a single firing button is provided, no guessing or tweaking of the voltage or wattage, making it an inviting vaporizer for new or advanced vapers.
There is an LED light behind the Fire button to indicate the battery life and basic operation of the iJust battery. There is a MicroUSB charge port on the side that supports 1A charging. Recharging the battery is fast, and simple.
The iJust S Sub-Ohm Tank was built to work perfectly with the battery. The tank is a threaded top-fill making it so simple to refill the 4mL ejuice reservoir.
Using the eLeaf EC Coil system, including the new 0.18ohm SS316 EC Coil, the user can get a wonderful vape with any PG/VG ratio, including MaxVG. The airflow of the iJust tank has been redesigned top to bottom, using dual airflow slots that measure 12mm by 3mm each, along with an optional adjustment throttle with the provided silicone ring.
It’s one thing to design a sub-ohm tank that works well and lasts a long time, it’s another to make this tank
compatible with so many other coil heads. The features from eLeaf say that users can use Atlantis, Triton, and cCell Coil heads, and being a huge fan of cCell coil heads I had to try them out. The result was excellent; it was as though I was vaping with the Vaporesso cCell Tank. Wouldn’t have been great had all tanks featured cross compatible coils?
The iJust S is not only an exercise in vaping simplicity, it is an elegant solution for modern day vapers looking for superior vape experiences with the easiest vape gear. No, the iJust S is not a complicated, TC capable, variable wattage device seen over and over again…it is a very basic setup that happens to provide a wonderful vape every time.

Real World Usage Report
After receiving our shipment of the iJust S the team began playing with them for a day or two. Everyone loved the simplicity, and were very surprised by the huge amount of clouds it could produce and the pure flavor with the Kanthal coil heads. What happened next was truly surprising…
The next morning, as the crew wandered into the office (a rare occasion when everyone was in town), the iJust S was in everybody’s hand. We talked about a relief from having to spend several minutes finding the right wattage, the right temperature, and other tweaks we seem to be making constantly. It was agreed that the iJust S “just worked”.
Unscrew the top cap, fill, and vape…
So many devices with similar features have been reviewed here in Spinfuel, and many of them did very well in their respective reviews. But this time, even the Joyetech eGo Mega couldn’t reach the performance and flavor that the iJust and iJust sub-ohm tank did.
It is truly remarkable that the iJust S is only $32.95. Available in Black or Stainless Steel (mine is black), the Starter Kit comes with the 3000 mAh battery (body), a terrific sub-ohm tank in its own right (worth $30 by itself), 3 coil heads, the USB cable, and a very good manual.
Something like the iJust S, a simple battery/body, and a good tank, a grab and go vaporizer, is something all vapers could benefit from. So whether you’re looking for something simple as a NEW vapor (see our Guide for New Vapers), or if you have plenty of sophisticated mods and sub-ohm tanks, the iJust S is a terrific complement to any vaper’s arsenal of gear.
I’ve been a huge fan of this type of vaporizer for years, and I have several of them, with a couple of new ones waiting in the wings to be reviewed. If you’re interested in buying a grab and go vaporizer I can tell you that if you’re looking for a sub-ohm solution with a grab and go, the iJust S is a great choice. If you look at other vaporizers like this one in the process of choosing the one you want, pay attention to the specs, and the price.
eLeaf is one of my favorite brands, and I hope that the rush-to-market by eLeaf, Joyetech and WISMEC, and all the rest, the iJust S doesn’t get buried in the pile. It deserves more…
