JOYETECH EVic FOLLOWUP 2-17-2013




What do you think about this video?

33bigggman: i have one but when i plug it into the computer the screen is scrambled when i unplug it shows the temp on top and the bottom is scrambled

Andy Miller: Grimm, I usually really Ike your videos but this one had me almost yelling at the screen. I just found my Evic after having lost it for about 6 months. It was like finding an old friend. After building a UD Igo w3 to 1.3 ohms - I'm now sitting here vaping very satisfying clouds at 11 watts on the Evic. I just don't get the same results you do in your review. Hardware not found? Wavy profiles? Re-install, what? You do not even need to ever plug the device into a computer - unless you really want to. It works just fine as a stand alone mod. You might want to have a friend update the firmware and fix your computer's usb problems for you. After losing the Evic I bought an Innokin VTR - I love it. It's powerful and can sub ohm. But unlike with the Evic, I also had to buy a battery and a charger. And the VTR has no charging circuit and can't do passthrough. That meant actually buying 2 batteries so I could charge one while vaping with the other. Before that I went about 6 months on the Evic with one 2600 mah battery, using passthrough at home while the battery was charging in the device. I also recently bought a 18650 mech mod.and I love it too. But vaoing with the Evic right now I realize what a bargain it was and what great a great little device it really is. It's very trendy right now to bash Joyetech and the Evic. I just wish you could have talked to some other experienced Evic users before posting this review... and maybe that's the real problem with the Evic - that it presents itself as an over complicated device. It can be that - it'll get almost as geeky, fiddly, and nerdy as you want to get with it. But it can also be a very economical, simple, safe, and very satisfying mod to use too.. . Thanks for allowing comments and keep up the (usually) great reviews!

Michael Cribari: Dude no reason to ever have a resistance of 3.2 ohms... The device is probably saving your batt from catching fire or some crap because it really doesn't have the power to heat up a coil with that resistance. .. hell I'd bet somewhere in that book you got it tells you that between 1.5 and 2.5 is optimal.. not talking crap just saying... what the hell ate you building with 36 gauge lol

hotheadedjoelhaha: Everyone gives their Evics away! Ahaha!

John Follis: First kudos, I appreciate that your at least on par with pbusareo guy that does many videos but your more tech savvy and you do it all at home and not a studio. My question is their a video out that shows the differences between different guage wire's and their use, pro's and cons, etc., or if you would be kind enough to direct me to one. I've searched youtube, google etc and can't really find a definitive 101 on gauge wire and their specific uses according to size and equipment for example. Gracias amigo.

Bryan Kerr: It's an awesome mod if you know how to use it correctly. Works good in VV mode but it seems like it is designed to work in VW mode, seems to work better that way. The current firmware is 1.4.

James Neuro: I'd love to hear how the eVic is now. I was really diggin it and thinking of grabbing one but these issues completely turned me off. Things improved at all!?

John Follis: Is the battery a 18650? Thank you.

Doris Ou: It's fabulous that we could upgrade the firmware for the life time. Hope they could quickly fix the sleeping option. By the way, my friend told me a reputable website that could offer cheap price for almost every products. You could google for it. That is Angelcigs.

Pasquale Van Wijk: i love the evic i really diggin it 

Brandin Roark: I have the evic with the iclear30b and i see people all the time vaping around a 9w with this tank but i cant vape above 7w without it having a dry/burnt hit?

Training4all: Does the latest firmware allow vaping @ 6 watts?

PaladinO: Have they upgraded the firmware since? Is it better now than it was?

Quickdrawmcgraw357: I love the way the evic looks and the fututrisitic menu is new and innovative. I also really like the software update idea. That being said this thing is a piece of sh*t IMHO the build quality is so damn cheap it isn't even funny. Ive seen one break firsthand at a vapeshop from falling off the glass display and onto the carpet. I would rather get an MVP2 or an SVD. Just my 2 cents. Great review grim!

Happy Jordan: Nuke the whales? Roblox?

Binky Butters: are you familiar with the nu joyetech eCom and do you plan on reviewing it?

brocksdaddy081910: I really thought about getting one with the first video you did but now im not going to waste the time.

EBHomeMovies: wish I had seen this in february. For those who might be confused by this- You don't have to uninstall the MVR software to solve that "HAS NOT FOUND THE HARDWARE EQUIPMENT" pop up problem. the issue is in how you connected the device to your PC. Step 1: EXIT the MVR program and shut it down choosing EXIT. 2:open the MVR software. 3: Click to close the open window and choose CLOSE THE WINDOW. 4: Connect your EVIC to your PC. This resolves that pop up - which occurs when you connect the evic without the MVR software running to detect device. Make sure MVR is running before you connect the EVIC. 

Paul Jones: Too flimsy. Came apart where the black part joins the top end. Epoxy didn't hold. Any solution ?

Mikey Derkson: aight listen bro ive bin looking into quiting smoking with some vape long story short I used the sanme thing u got going on in tis vid im sure its updated w.e right now atm it kicked my ass but im curious as to what seetings u have it on because for me I have it onb sxome random as settings and I just had the greatest bj while I was smoking it it worked while I was getting a bj and kept smoking but yeah long story I want to know what u have ur stings on im a first time vapor got this bad boy from my birth moms friend let me know whats up what u use and how to set it thanks

Alice Ou: Thans for the review.

Ronny op de Beeck: Thanks

clamum: It doesn't look like you're inhaling the vapor... are you?

videoman223: Know if this will fit an EVOD tank?

HerdoRalden: It seems like you and everyone else vapes at WAY higher watts than I do. "Seriously, who vapes at 5.2 watts?" I don't, it's usually less than that. I have a ProVari and I can't really set it past 3.7 volts without burning my lungs, even on 3.0 ohm cartos. For instance, right now I am using a 3.0 ohm carto (checked on ProVari), and I have it at 3.4 volts which is 3.85 watts. That is almost too harsh. If I set it to even 3.6 volts it is way too much and it tastes burnt and I am coughing. It's so weird to me that everyone else is vaping at 8+ watts and not dying. If I cracked 5 watts I would probably have to be hospitalized.

stranger808: You really should try an updated eVic and post another followup. For the users in the community who are looking for your guidance, this review is good but it is not really all that helpful or relevant to users in the community considering the move to this device from an eGo or lesser device but not yet ready for a full on MOD that requires a lot of battery and device knowledge or maintenance. As a previous comment indicates the 1.4 firmware fixes a lot of previous bugs and makes the device a great entry to mid level mod. While I cannot speak for the software on a Mac I have never had the issues you discuss on any other PC and have several eVics that my multiple PC's have never had any issue with. Plus as a all in one device (variable voltage mod, battery charger, ohm meter) the device is one of the best I have found for the all day user looking for connivance in a very flexible package. 

nik12937: Did you ever find a solution to the "not found" glitch? To me that almost sounds like usb driver issues.You could also try running the program in admin mode, since it will forces admin rights on install it could be why it only works the first time.

░▒▓█YTTeeVee™█▓▒░: i can plug mine to computer or through a charger...the wall charger came with it

Mikel Reborn: So is this fixed ? I had a MVP 2.0 and two MVP 1.0 in the past 3 years , I bought these because I liked the big battery I liked the VV/VW, pass though and puff counter . But none of these lasted long, my 2nd 1.0 I had before I got the 2.0 lasted a year ,the longest of all 3 MVP's I had . Most of them broke from crapty china components . This eVic looks like an updated version of the MVP, so how does it fare compared to the MVP 2.0 ? I am thinking of getting one .

NoX1313: What? How can you call that a boring vape? I mean that was a huge cloud of vapor that you exhaled! lol! I am lucky if I get that!! I just purchased the eVic but it has not gotten here yet. I look forward to getting it and taking a good "toot" off of it and blowing out a great cloud like that! :D I personally love the techy aspect of it. Something new to play with and learn about! By the way Value Vapor has the boxed kit for $79.99 right now! Go get ya one! ;)

Chris Xenchino: Right-click the icon for the MVR program and authorize it to run as administrator. That will allow the program work every time you connect the eVic to your PC.

TheMrjogas: I update to 1.3 and I notice was acting abit strange like show battery zero in a sec show normal was 67. Freez few time. Was other few thing so I think this firmware they soon update.voltage still 5v :( using on lee a week now,but really need 1.4 soon.geat update like ur video

Uderbottom Sandydown: Should have checked the evic for the date, lol

chakenfangersaregood: Just give me the one that gives the most vapor youve ever had lol Just name the battery and the atomizer and im buying it lol. i just wanna look ridiculous when im at the casino.

VEGAS421AB: Don't buy. "Atomizer short" ELECTRONICS PROBLEMS. Expense and after 5 months the Joyetech company will run you around, just to tell you so sorry, it's your problem. Buy USA.

GrimmGreen: Maybe something like the AGA-T2 , I have the AGA-T and it's pretty nice. The T2 has a better top cap that lets you put the air hole were you need it.

GrimmGreen: sometimes my brain just doesn't work

Blake Fister: what flavors do u vape the most

Daniel Johnson: Is there a possibly to hack the firmware? Seems like if so, you could crank out just about any volt/watt you want.

David Emanuel: yo nick, quick question. do you know about whats new in the 1.3v. were not going to ask you to do a new vid everytime they go 0.1version up. they have the battery and circuitry for it to go to 15w and 6v as everyother mod out there. have they done that already in v1.3? does it have 6v and 15watts? thanks again dude and as always... YOU ROCK !!!

mike downing: Hi Grim, have been watching your videos on the e-vic, I just got 1 a few weeks ago and still haven't figured out the menu, I understood that somehow you can set the wattage and it will stay at that no matter what you put on top for a tank etc. Until you change it manually. One thing I do know after writing to joyetech is when you turn it on and it recomends 5.2 watts, that just a number they program into all e-vics because they feel its a safe number and has nothing to do with your setup. mike

GrimmGreen: Yup!

Samantha Montgomery: Maybe for juices with more than one flavor ie mbv pineapple upside down cake low volts gives some of the flavors high volts gives you others maybe if you changed volts in a vape you could taste the entire juice

GrimmGreen: So many options out there it's ridiculous. I always get nice performance from cartomizer tanks and a variable voltage mod

elijah carter: hahahahaaaaa

Dave Giard: I do think its slightly ridiculous, I mean its got all the fuss of a computer, but all it is, is a PV that counts your drags.

GrimmGreen: This video was relevant when I uploaded it in FEBRUARY. I don't even have the eVic anymore, it's been given away.

MrBigc8: what's with the "nuke the whales" wall paper?

GrimmGreen: I honestly have no idea :/ my eVic is long gone

GrimmGreen: There's a reason why plugging your mod into your computer never caught on. Because it's a terrible idea ha ha

Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
