In this review we’ll be giving the Joyetech Delta 2 Sub Ohm Tank a test run, and seeing how it matches up to the other sub ohm tanks that are at the forefront of the market. The release of the Aspire Atlantis and Kanger Subtanks wasn’t too long ago, but everyone already seems to be raving about the latest product, the Delta 2. The popularity increase in sub ohm tanks could make it a little confusing for first time buyers looking to purchase one; there’s the Eleaf Melo, Smok MCT and the Arctic sub ohm tanks to consider as well. So much choice can easily cause confusion, so in this review we’ll do our best to make it clear what makes the Delta 2 stand out from the others.
Key Features and Specifications
- Delta 2 Atomiser tank
- 2 LVC 0.5 ohm Atomiser heads
- Height: 70.5mm
- Diameter: 22mm
- E-Liquid Capacity: 3.5ml
The Delta 2 is designed with higher wattage devices in mind, meaning that you get the best use from it when paired with a 20-45 watt battery. It’s very adaptable, with a Liquid Valve Controller that allows you to adjust the flow of e-juice through the head of the atomiser, as well as a built in airflow adjuster that will allow you to produce bigger vapour clouds. The five sub ohm coils give an intense flavour along with lots of cloud production, making it an ideal product for lung inhalers. It also comes with an additional RBA atomiser, which allows you to rebuild your own coils rather than purchasing new ones.
When we first tried the Delta 2, a really nice feature that stood out straight away was its ability to control the flow of e-liquid, something that you can’t do with the Atlantis or the Subtanks. Although it might not sound like such a massive deal, being able to control the flow of juice can come in handy for a number of reasons, such as preventing over wicking and leaking, especially if you like to use higher PG liquids. It’s also more suitable than the others for those who prefer to mouth inhale, as you can close the airflow and adjust the juice flow accordingly.
At first sight the Delta 2 looks a little bit narrower in width than the Atlantis and the Subtanks. However, at closer inspection, we found that there is a hole on each side that allow the Delta 2 to let in a lot of air on the widest setting. The coil on the Delta 2 also seems to let in more air than the ones on the other products do, as it’s a little bit bigger.
Giving it a Test Run
Since the Delta 2 is designed for using with batteries of a higher wattage, we tried it at both 25W and 30W. Personally, we found that the 25W mark was just right, although the Delta 2 can be used at 40-50W without any issues, and we’ve even seen somebody chain vaping it at 60W with absolutely no trouble or dry hits.
We tested the Delta 2 with Driptonic e-liquids, which are around 80% VG, and found that there were absolutely no problems with wicking at all, and didn’t experience any dry hits.
When it comes to flavour, the Delta 2, in our opinion, is at the top of the list with the Subtank, producing brilliant, intense flavours. It’s good to notice that different vapers have varying preferences with taste, so whilst for us the taste was perfect at around 30W, others could prefer it at 50W – so it’s all about finding what works for you.
In regards to cloud production, the Delta 2 is on a par with the other tanks on the market, producing large, impressive clouds of vapour. One thing that we did notice is that the vapour is a lot cooler with the Delta 2 in comparison with the Subtank, and manages to stay cool even at higher wattages, which was quite impressive.
We really liked the Delta 2 overall, although we had some concerns about the wicking material, which contains both organic and man-made fibres – there have been a lot of vapers concerned about the possibility of these fibres breaking off and being inhaled. We also though that the Delta 2 could do with a larger window, as it’s currently difficult to see how much e-liquid you’ve got left. Overall, however, we found it to produce an excellent vaping experience.
