There is small, and then there is SMALL. The new pocket size mod from Eleaf is the iStick Kiya, and even with the new GS Juni tank attached, I don’t think I’ve vaped a smaller device. But, this isn’t a review, I haven’t used it long enough to tell you what I think, it’s a preview. Going in, no matter what, know that this iStick Kiya is one small mod with a huge off-blue display.
iStick Kıya and GS Juni Specs
The iStick Kiya comes packs a huge 1.45-inch color display with a very bright interface and real-time clock. Eleaf is using a new protection method this time out, called a “temperature protected charging system” that allows for a full 2A charging current. The iStick Kiya charges fast, but safely due to the constant monitoring of the device’s body and internal temperature.
Check out the specs below…
Size: 35.5mm*25.8mm*94.5mm Weight: 115.4g E-liquid capacity: 2ml Battery capacity: 1600mAh Maximum charging current: 2A Thread type: 510 thread Output wattage: 1-50W Output mode: VW/Bypass/TC(Ni,Ti,SS,TCR-M1,M2,M3) Resistance range: 0.05-1.5ohm (TC modes) 0.1-3.5ohm (VW/Bypass mode) Temperature range: 100－315℃/200－600℉(TC modes)
The GS Juni Tank
iStick Kıya Kit
So far I’ve used the iStick Kiya and GS Juni for less than an hour, with a delicious and strong flavored banana e-juice with an 80/20 VG/PG ratio. The flavor was good, though nothing compared to vaping this juice in a Uwell Valyrian or SMOK TFV12 Prince, but no one would expect that kind of performance from something this tiny. The Kiya has a maximum wattage output of 50W, not bad considering, and a normal TC range of 200-600 degrees, so I’ll be interested in seeing how some other, larger tanks work with this tiny mod. While the iStick Kiya might be categorized with the SMOK AL85, the Pico series, or the Vaporesso Swag, the Kiya is noticeably smaller…except the display, which is much larger than any I’ve seen to date. In the upcoming full review we’ll cover some of the other features in a real-life vaping environment and we’ll let you know if the iStick Kiya would make a good stealth device, or if its more suited to the novelty mod category. Right now, today, I just don’t know. Expected to sell for about $40 for the Kit, it could be an excellent value, or a waste of money. Check back in a week or so to find out.
