Reviewer comments on business characteristics
2015 is really a carrier year for joyetech. The Ego One starter kit which remains in my opinion a reference if not the reference in terms of price / quality ratio, the OLED egrip another box variant incorporating the atomizer also for beginners, the formidable Evic Vt and its look of American sports car first box to offer temperature control at Joyetech.
And to continue surfing on the success joyetech offers us for this season a mini version of the Evic VT: the Evic VTC mini.
This (very) compact box incorporates the variable wattage mode and temperature control identical to those of its big sister.
But she is enriched with a bypass mode (mode offering mechanical mode behavior to the Evic Vtc), all powered by an interchangeable 18650 battery.
So unavoidable product or banal declination of the best seller that has become Evic VT?

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The evci VTC mini is of course compact, its dimensions 22,2 x 38,2 x 82 place it perfectly in the guns of this sector.
The weight is relatively large as often products joyetech, but let's be clear, here no need to take a subscription in a weight room.
From a quality point of view the Evic Vtc benefits from a (very) neat finish.
Joyetech does not fail in this area. I'm not sure when it comes to materials, aluminum, steel can be both, but in any case the assembly does not suffer from any defects, and the satin matte black surface treatment is nice in the hands and beautiful to the eye. If all takes a little fingerprints maintenance is simple (a rag ...).
The magnetic side cover is perfectly maintained by two magnets, the accuracy of manufacture of the element prohibits any form of play.
Note that thereafter you can acquire different colors to customize and brighten your box (I admit that I find the idea more than interesting ... remains to know the price).
The design is simple and sober. A rectangular parallelepiped with rounded edges. The screen is slightly smaller than that of the Evic Vt, but it displays exactly the same information, in the same layout. Perfectly readable, it is in the middle of the slice. It is on this same slice you will find the different buttons and the mini USB plug.
The buttons are perfectly adjusted no noise of castanets to be feared.
Finally, let's talk about the 510 pine, if some see it floating, and others on spring..My I have trouble it seems very stiff, not really fixed, but it allows to be flush and that's all that account.
For the moment this Evic Vtc mini perfectly matches my expectations hope that the following will confirm this first good impression.

- Connection type: 510, Ego - via an adapter
- Adjustable positive plot? Yes, through a floating pine.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
What to say ? This box has the same functions as the Evic vt namely:
- Temperature control: adjusts the temperature of the resistance for better flavor rendering. It also reduces the consumption of e-liquid and energy. In this mode your resistance will be between 0,05 and 1 ohm.
- Power Variation: Adjust the power of your eVic VTC mini from 1 to 60 Watts. With this mode your resistances can spread from 0,10 to 3,5 ohm.
- The OLED display allows you to view the different modes used, the power, the voltage, etc., but also the number of puffs or the duration of vaping.
Let's add the new bypass mode operating within the same resistance limits as the WV mode and the fact that the box uses an interchangeable 18650 battery, and that's it.
Joyetech corrects what some reproached his big sister.
Note the micro USB socket that allows reloading, use in pass-trought, and the firmware update (yes I too, here I am under the spell!).
At the security level the Vtc mini has everything you need ... no worries with joyetech on this point.
Evaluation of the packaging
- Presence of a box accompanying the product: Yes
- Would you say that the packaging is up to the price of the product? Can do better
- Presence of a user manual? Yes

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
Nothing great in terms of the box, it's clean well presented but not super original.
The packages at Joyetech follow each other and are similar.
Despite everything is complete and the manual is of course very exhaustive, and in French (cocoricooooooooooooo!) And just for that package deserves a good note.
I'm a little surprised that joyetech does not provide an accu with his box, it's not in his habit, but it's good war to stay at a reasonable price.

This box is an example of the kind, easy to live and to handle. Its compactness predisposes it to a nomadic use.
The controls are identical to the Evic VT so super simple, especially as the manual in French explains everything.
As for the vape, here she is as good as her big sister, and behaves perfectly in the three modes available.
The mini VT is able to meet the requirements of all vipers wanting a versatile box, whether beginner or (very) experienced.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
To begin objectively this Evic VTC mini is a success in every way.
Compact, efficient simple and well built this box at all it takes to make a box.
A large screen, three mode WV, TC and bypass functions, a power of 60watts, and finally a good management of the battery.
So without any surprise we can only love this machine able to accompany us with happiness on a daily basis.
But I confess I am still a little disappointed,
The Evic VT shone with its inspired design of the American Muscle cars. Evic Vtc mini is much more consensual, more discreet the only thing we offer to distinguish your box are the hoods back other colors. Here is the summary of my thoughts seeing her the first time ...
But with use after a few days, I totally forgot his family ties. This box shares a large part of the genetic inheritance of its big sister, but must not and can not be compared to it.
No this box should be compared to ipv mini, smok m65, .... And in front of these competitors, it imposes itself in my opinion in more than one way!
A very good, if not an excellent product, which I am sure will be in many hands (male and female) in the coming weeks.
The reasons: a value for money of the most honorable and a faculty nomadism very important while being able to offer all the features of a box at the forefront!
Hat and Thank you MyVapors Europe!
Good Vince Vape.
