The size is 92 x 43 x 28mm and as you already know, that’s a very small size for such a powerful device.
The OLED screen is a little less than an inch and displays all of the crucial information you normally expect like the wattage, amps, voltage, etc.
It has a tactile feeling fire button made out of stainless steel.
The entire device has a sleek and classic look that is almost minimal but has that little something extra.
The threading is the usual 510 connection which makes it perfect for almost any atomizer you have.
It works great with a variety of sub ohm tanks such as the IJoy itself, the Atlantis V2, the Kanger Subtank, the Aspire Atlantis, the Acme, the Arctic, and the Horizon.
If it’s a sub ohm tank, more than likely it will work with the IJoy A160W box mod.
