The Katana is more a vape pen than a box mod. It’s got a slim and tall shape that is boxy however with curved edges and sides. It’s 94.5 mm tall and 30mm large so it isn’t too big. Nevertheless, it is quite heavy at 120grams– much heavier than most single battery mods or vape pens.
The weight makes it feel strong but it also makes me scared to drop it. A good drop would most likely bang this thing up quite well. The develop quality is excellent though as the Katana is without any production defects and very well put together.
The curves on the Katana make it nice to hold. The mod is a little slippery though so I had to be that it didn’t slip out of my hand.
I’m not a big fan of the design because of how industrial it looks however that’s simply my opinion. I did get the stainless-steel color for this evaluation though so that most likely has a lot to do with it. The other 6 colors are a bit more enjoyable looking and make the mod a lot better. A little color can go a long way.iJoy Katana Mod Bottom Branding
Aside from some branding on the bottom of the mod, the Katana is totally free and plain of visible branding. One side has the oled and buttons display however otherwise the gadget is bare. The top of the mod has a spring-loaded 510 adapter.
The fire and adjustment buttons on the Katana are rounded and look quite great. They rattle a little when touched though and make a hollow, springy sound that diminishes their build quality. When pushed they’re good and clicky and work well. The buttons take a fair amount of pressure to activate, although not too much, so I didn’t have a problem with pressing them accidentally.iJoy Katana Buttons
The screen on the Katana is a 0.91″ OLED display. It’s clear and intense enough but it’s black and white therefore it looks a bit outdated. Just under the screen and below the change buttons is a micro-USB port for charging the integrated battery.
Battery iJoy Katana Firing Button
The Katana has an integrated 3000mAh battery. Pretty respectable for a vape mod that goes up to 81W. When vaping at 60-70W, I got about a half and a day to 2 full days of pretty heavy use.
For when you’re on the go, being able to plug in a micro USB to charge it instead of worrying about eliminating the battery and using an external battery charger works.
Charging times are simply all right with the Katana. From completely dead, it took me about 2 hours to recharge the gadget.

The Katana is powered by the IWEPAL chipset. I truthfully don’t know excessive about this chip however it’s been quite reputable while I’ve utilized the mod. No malfunctioning or any other problems so it seems to be excellent.
The UI is standard but shows whatever you require. It will show your present wattage, battery level, coil resistance, puff time/puff counter and voltage. Easy but efficient.
The Katana has a couple of various modes and a few of them are quite distinct and intriguing. It has Pmode, MTL, Bypass, Pod, Power, tc and tcr modes. It will fire at approximately 81 watts in Power mode and from 300-600 ° F in TC mode.
Press the fire button 3 times to switch in between modes. The modes are:
Power Mode: This is your routine wattage mode that goes from 1 to 81W.
Pmode: This mode is like Power mode but offers you three different choices: soft, normal and difficult. The only real benefit over Power mode is if you’re vaping at 81W.
MTL: This mode is indicated to be used with MTL tanks that require low wattages. MTL mode is wattage mode however restricted to an optimum of 15W. This ensures that you won’t scorch your coil and throat when utilizing a MTL tank.
Pod: Pod mode is generally voltage mode. You can set the voltage anywhere from 2.5 to 3.8 V.
Bypass: Bypass will enable the mod to work as if it was uncontrolled. In Bypass the Katana will provide the optimum wattage according to the resistance of the coil and your battery charge level. As your battery passes away the draw will get weaker.
Temperature level Control: The Katana supports TC with nickel, titanium and stainless-steel. It also has a TCR setting for usage with other products.
The last choice in the modes menu is “PUFFREST” which lets you reset the puff counter. I couldn’t find any other button mixes with the Katana so it looks like you’re unable to lock the buttons. A bit of a disappointment however not a huge problem.
PerformanceiJoy Katana Performance
I’ve used the Katana for about 2 weeks now. In that time, it’s proven to be a trustworthy and well-performing mod. I haven’t messed around with it excessive in temperature level control mode however it’s a reliable wattage mode vape for sure.
When you press the fire button and the wattage output is precise, the Katana fires quickly. 70W is where I utilized this mod most of the time as that’s the sweet spot for a great deal of tanks and coils.
I think the Katana would do well as a backup vape for if the battery in your main mod passes away. Not to say that the Katana isn’t a great vape on its own but it just seems like a great mod to bring around.
MTL mode works excellent with well, MTL tanks. I do believe that the MTL mode ought to go up to 25W though as this would be a more suitable range for a lot of MTL tanks on the market.
VerdictiJoy Katana Mod Evaluation
The iJoy Katana is an excellent mod. It’s got an ergonomic shape and feels good to use but it’s a little on the heavy side. The design may not be for everyone but it does its task as an integrated battery mod. 3000mAh goes a long way at 60-70W and nowadays, that’s the sweet spot for many tanks.
The buttons on the mod feel a little low-cost due to the springy sound they make when touched however that’s the only real drawback to the develop quality. In addition, the MTL mode ought to ideally increase to 25W. You can simply utilize wattage mode and be very mindful but that defeats the whole purpose of a separate mode.
I would state go for it if you like the look of it and are thinking of choosing one up for wattage mode. If your primary mod passes away, it’s also an excellent backup vape for. With the Katana as a backup, you will not be stuck without a vape!
