First impressions: Mage GTA – IJOY Maxo

Thanks to Gearbest, I did spend some time with the CoilArt Mage GTA ($20.68) and the IJOY Maxo Quad ($44.62).

The Mage GTA looks pretty dope, is very easy to build on and the flavor is stellar. But there is one thing that makes this atty unusable for me: It does not wick. Not at all. The clearance between the chamber and the glass does not let any juice through if is is higher than 75VG (rest PG). I did dremel some slits in the chamber and it works better now (see picture), nonetheless it is really disappointing. I hope that they will make a 25mm version – would be a dope single coiler.

The IJOY Maxo Quad is naturally a huge and heavy mod. It does not feel very high-class but comes with lots of customizations options for the side stickers which is nice. The display is crystal clear and really good and easy readable. One big con here for me: The battery door bulges out when 18650s are inserted. Will do a pic later. Not sure if the 30qs are a tad longer than others but this does not look good at all. For battery life, the Maxo is killer of course – especially with 4*3000mAh cells!
