Joyetech Atopack Magic Starter Kit
Hi UKVapers, In this review i take a look at the Atopack Magic Starter Kit from Joyetech. The Atopack Magic Starter Kit was supplied free of charge for the purpose of this review by Ana from Joyetech.

Introduction

It's been over a year since the Dolphin the last device in the Atopack series of pod devices from Joyetech but the third Atopack device as been worth the wait. The Atopack Magic incorporates Joyetech's innovative coil-less NCFilm technology inside the pod giving the pod upwards of 3 months use by simply replacing the cotton pad when needed. With the nature of the NCFilm being that lower wattage is needed the Magic gives ultra low constant output yet accommodates a 1300mAh (massive for a pod system) in-built battery giving excellent battery life!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Aesthetics and Ergonomics

The Atopack Magic came in typical Joyetech cardboard packaging and on opening i found i had received a nice brushed Silver device, it's also available in Phantom Blue and Black. The Magic is quite large for a pod device and also heavy has it's made from Zinc Alloy but it's still pocket friendly and nice and portable. The pod that fits the device has a thick duckbill mouthpiece and is tinted but fully transparent so there will be no issues seeing the juice level. The front of the device has a large square Black fire button positioned centrally and at the bottom "magic ATOPACK" is printed. The back of the device as a micro USB port positioned centrally with a small indication light just above, at the bottom we have the Joyetech trademark printed. Both sides of the device is featureless then moving to the base we have venting and embossed safety stamps. The build quality is about the best i have witnessed with a pod system and the device is both ergonomic and comfortable between the lips.

The NCFilm Heater

Instead of a coil as we know it the Atopack Magic's pod uses the new NCFilm heater which actually is a coil that's flattened out and fixed on a film. From the name and the picture no prizes for working out it's a thin NotchCoil that has been flattened out and not that dissimilar to the stovecoil idea but rather than circular this is rectangular and not pre-wicked so you can change the wicking time and time again making full use of the NCFilm heater's longevity. Also the NCFilm is not relying on the tilt of the tank to saturate the cotton as it's placed in the base of the tank with cotton placed underneath so liquid saturates the cotton in a more traditional fashion.

The Pod

Whether you get the impressive 7ml capacity standard pod or the TPD compliant 2ml capacity pod they are on the large size and have a thick duckbill mouthpiece which i found to be one of the most comfortable mouthpieces i have come across on a pod. Towards the top of the pod on one side we have a small airflow slot which allows the air to travel down an isolated channel to the NCFilm, this airflow is non-adjustable. On the front of the pod we have a label which allows you to write the details about the e-liquid that's inside the pod, on the back of the pod is a sticker with branding and safety stamps. Inside the base of the pod is a large White plastic section this is where all the "Magic" happens. Looking at the base of the pod we can see the 2 contacts then to one side is a small latch which when pulling lifts up a bottom plastic cover which is on a creased hinge and also houses the bung for the fill port. Looking underneath the cover we can still see the contacts and to one side is the fill port, i had no issues filling so i believe the airflow is allowing for the air to escape. In the centre we have a small square silicone flap that can be lifted up (if finding this a bit awkward you are supplied with good quality tweezers to help) which when lifted reveals a square of cotton. If you remove this cotton it reveals the NCFilm (again the tweezers help removing the cotton). When you feel the flavour is beginning to mute then you simply remove the old cotton and replace with a new square, you are supplied with 50 squares in total which sounds a lot and it is but these NCFilm's have a very long life cycle. Once a new piece of cotton is fitted saturate with e-liquid before fixing the silicone flap in place, fill the pod and reseal the base.

Fitting The Pod Inside The Device

Looking inside the device we can see the Gold plated, Spring loaded contacts, we can also see the inner perimeter has a translucent strip for the LED to shine through. The pod just gets press fitted into place but fits securely, its not over tight (removing it just takes a bit of a tug) but certainly not loose.

Using The Atopack Magic

The Magic has a physical fire button but is a simple constant output device so there is no menu or power adjustments that can be made. I personally prefer pod systems with a physical button (maybe it's the satisfying click of the button) which also allows the device to be turned off. Turning the device on and off is the usual 5 clicks of the button and when turned on or off the little indication light just above the micro USB port flashes 5 times very quickly. The device does have battery indication, a quick press of the fire button activates the indication light for 5 seconds, also after taking a vape the light stays active for a further 5 seconds after releasing the button. As well as the little indication light there is also a translucent surround inside the device where the pod is fitted giving the device a bit of colour. When the light stays lit the battery is between 60% and 100%, when it has a slow flash it's between 30% and 59%, when it moderately flashes the life is between 10% and 29% and finally when the battery life is below 10% the light flashes rapidly. The colour of the indication LED can also be changed by pressing the fire button 3 times quickly and then with each additional click it goes through the colour options, when it is on the colour you want just don't press the fire button for 5 seconds and the colour is selected. The colour options are Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, White and Purple. As you would expect the Magic also has the safety features you would expect.

My Experience Using The Atopack Magic

The NCFilm behave's inside the Magic's pod just like it does in the Cubis Max so it's a cool vape which will not be to everyone's liking but i like it as i don't like my vape too warm. The flavour in my opinion is very good being very comparable to the EQ and the Zero, while airflow is a very loose MTL (again suits me) and can't be adjusted, i could do a DL draw with the magic but it's very restrictive even for me who likes a restrictive DL vape. The OFRF Gear RTA just became my 5th atty that i have permanently on my desk on top of a device so i can use it often but one of the other 4 is the Cubis Max still with the original NCFilm installed and the flavour is still as good as ever so i can definitely vouch for the longevity of the NCFilm technology. The 7ml capacity (standard edition) which i received means plenty of vape time before refills and the battery life is very impressive as the Magic outputs an ultra low constant output of just 2.3v which it can do because the 0.6ohm NCFilm needs a lot less wattage than a standard coil.

RE: Joyetech Atopack Magic Starter Kit
Love the way the manufacturers make everything a virtue! "ultra-efficient low voltage (2.3v) solution"
The mesh coil is 0.6 ohms (probably has to be this low to stop it being fragile) and this, coupled with 2.3v gives an output of just under 9w, which isn't that low for a pod system. Nice to have a decent sized battery though. A cool vape is mentioned - it probably would be with 9w into a mesh coil.

Can't argue with what your saying but the cool vape isn't just the fact it's only 9w into a (what isn't a mesh coil), they have used the NCFilm in the Cubis Max and when 50w is thrown at it it's still a cool vape although part of it's nature is it gives good vapor production at lower wattage's so the watts can be kept down.

I like Joyetech's innovation in certain areas...

But y'know what I hate about these manufacturers' claims, is the presumably total bullshit involved...

If I'm gonna put my dirtiest sludgiest custard caramel coffee sticky toffee pudding in there, is the coil really gonna last "upwards of 3 months"... ???

Maybe they are relying on dry-burn to enable this feat...
Can you dry-burn it? (without the cotton of course)

Is the coil designed to be replaced?

As a reviewer, please test this and report back... Wink

I first got the Cubis Max that came with the Ultex T80 back in September and it's been on my desk ever since. It uses the same NCFilm and i regularly vape with it and sometimes grab it when i go out to use as my vaping device. It still has the original NCFilm in it i have just changed the cotton pad about 4 times and the flavour is still as good as it was when i first got it. Don't you think you should try a product before saying it's Bullshit? Wink

As for dry burning, don't need to the film doesn't get crudded up like a traditional coil.

In the pods the NCFilm can't be changed but because of it's longevity it comes supplied with cotton pads these pods are more economical than not only other disposable pods but also pods where you can replace the coil as coils aren't free.

In the Cubis Max though the NCFilm can be replaced, i have done a couple of reviews involving th Cubis Max but not posted them on this forum because it's not TPD compliant.

I've not "said" it's bullshit, I've just presumed a certain claim probably is...

But it's good to get feedback on a product before trying (and in my case maybe supplying) a product, especially when having scepticism about the manufacturer's claims...

And surely that's what a reviewer is for... ?

But back in the day, when we were selling Janty atomisers (made by Joye), they came with a 6 month warranty...

Even if you had put the cleanest menthol through it, you couldn't realistically get 6 months use of course.

I simply saw the 6 month warranty as a way of a customer paying an inflated price for an atomiser, and get as many replacements as they saw fit (and could be bothered to send back) within the 6 months after purchase.
(and they were regularly replaced of course)

But yes, that warranty period was essentially bullshit, in respect to an unrealistic lifespan of a product...
.. which then was reduced considerably (and price dropped) not long after that.
