Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Joyetech continues to expand its box range. Encouraged by the success of the eVic VTC and VTC mini, the Chinese brand offers us its double box battery given for 150W. As usual Joyetech was quick to push the beast to 200W through an update of its firmware.
Joyetech has chosen the way of mid-range, the Cuboïd is not exempt from the rule and places well in terms of price. But after flooding the market of the Muscle Box with the Wismec Reuleaux, will this new machine find its place?

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
As usual Joyetech offers us a serious product and well thought out.
The box is called way building, an elongated quadrilateral with a large "bay window" in front that hides a large screen of the most beautiful effect. The little thing about this facade is that it does not make things easier in full sun (at the same time right now it is rare), and scratches will be inevitable.
The 510 pin is spring loaded and its thread is very correct.
The fire button is of a substantial size, it is on the upper part of the side. Plastic, it responds very well, but it is not fully wedged in its enclave.
A front bar operates the most and the least is a wise aesthetic choice. This button works very well and it is very well adjusted.
Last part the battery door, it also seems good quality, it is a little tricky to open when the box is empty, and I have a little doubt about the strength in time of the small tip that serves to make the contact between the box and the hatch.
An original box, a correct size, a good comfort by its ergonomics, and a good value for money. Objectively I can not blame this box, but I am not touched by this original design, which I find a bit heavy.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
This chapter is almost uninteresting at the moment as the boxes offer the same functions. The Cuboid provides a clear display, navigation in the menus is simple and effective. Electronics does a good job and of course allows you to run a variable power mode, a CT mode (temperature control), and a TCR mode.
Equipped with all the necessary protections, the Cuboïd offers like Wismec a useful subsidiary function: the measurement of the output voltage of the batteries separately, turn off your box and press the fire button and the button minus a few seconds and voila, the measure of each of the accusers that appears on the sleeping screen.
In short, a box that does the job, but does not bring anything really new.

No need to tell you that, as usual, Joyetech offers us its product in a sober and elegant packaging, presenting its model on a white background, a silver circle comes to break the very cubic aspect of the whole. The package contains the box, the USB cable, and a manual in French. This is the usual 5 / 5 for this brand.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
The Cuboid only suffers from a defect: its weight exceeds the 300g once the batteries in place.
Its size is reasonable, which allows you to take it anywhere with you.
For the rest, autonomy is good, the quality of vape is at the rendezvous, and the use is simple. The batteries are easily replaced, we can recharge the box via the mini-USB port, but Joyetech still advises the use of a charger for a better quality of charge.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
On the objective plane the Cuboid is a good machine, complete, practical, efficient and well designed. The quality / price ratio is in what is best. It's a good choice, and Joyetech is sure to be one more success at his hunt table.
I can not say much wrong, but here I am totally impervious to the chosen design, it is not ugly, but I do not stick. In addition, as I already have a Wismec that I like a lot because less consensual I will not leave for his cousin.
