iJOY is certainly not messing around with its first foray into the disposable vape range.
The Punk disposable vape comes with a 1200mAh battery and 12ml of prefilled juice that can deliver up to 4500 puffs.
What’s more impressive is that the Punk disposable is available in 25 flavors at launch!
The Punk utilizes iJOY’s new Gen-2 mesh coil and has a 1.1Ω resistance coil inside.
The Punk features some ‘Punky’ designs within a polycarbonate shell that also glows up when used in the dark.
The iJOY Punk is available in both a 50mg (5%) and 30mg (3%) nicotine strength.

iJOY has made some fascinating design choices with this Punk line of disposables.
Firstly they have gone with a fully integrated 1200mAh battery, so there’s no USB-C recharging. The battery capacity is more than enough to cover the 12ml of pre-filled juice. It’s a good old case of being a traditional disposable vape; use it until it stops working.
This also means that the iJOY Punk is not the slimmest or most compact of disposables. However, I’m pretty impressed with how this thing is still compact and in line with many rechargeable disposable vapes.
It measures 106mm tall with a 26.5mm diameter and weighs 65 grams. While that is a little heavier than other disposables because of the size of the internal battery, it’s not heavy, and the weight gives it more of a premium feel.
The body of the Punk disposable is Polycarbonate, which is relatively sturdy. In addition, the Punk has a stainless steel ring that features the iJOY logo along the top half section of the device. This also adds to that premium feel.
The next interesting design choice by iJOY is the eclectic mix of Punk patterns that adorn the inside of each disposable behind the Polycarbonate shell.
They have 6 different sticker designs through the 25 flavor range. They range from graffiti-style work of planets and asteroids to the more bizarre ensemble of Elmo or E.T. on a skateboard.
While the designs might not be to everyone’s taste, there’s no denying they are eye-catching. It’s also worth mentioning I think they have done a decent job of making them look appealing without going down too much of a cartoon route.
The next design element of the iJOY Punk I thought I was going to absolutely hate. I saw in the promotional material for the device that it lights up. I can’t stand having a flashy disposable that lights up, drawing too much attention when I’m out in public.
Thankfully, iJOY has handled this quite well with the Punk. The device has an LED light on the base, which lights up when it’s active. But, in broad daylight, that’s all it is, a light on the bottom of the device, just like any other disposable.
However, due to the design of the Punk with its transparent shell and the fact it is a powerful LED light. When used at night, the whole device glows in the same color as the device’s light (and flavor profile). It makes the entire disposable look pretty cool, and I can see how some people will love it.
It’s still a little too much, in my opinion, but it helped when getting up in the middle of the night. I didn’t need my phone, I just took a puff of the Punk, and I could see where I was going….so there is that.
Another design aspect I really like about the Punk disposable is the mouthpiece. It’s tapered well, is really comfortable to use, and is ideal for MTL vaping.
Overall, I like that iJOY has done something different with the design of the Punk disposable. It has good build quality, is comfortable to use, and stands out from the crowd.
A very juicy and authentic Strawberry greets your taste buds on the inhale and is followed by a subtle cooling, Icy effect on the exhale. It has an excellent balance of being perfectly sweet from the juicy Strawberry without being too overpowering. The cooling just adds to the flavor, which often isn’t the case with disposables—an excellent refreshing Strawberry vape.
Wow, the Lush Ice is certainly lush right from the offset. You get an instant hit of pure juicy fruit on the inhale. It’s a delectable concoction of mixed tropical fruits. But I really notice a deep juicy Watermelon pushing through as you work your way through the vape. There’s also a well-balanced cooling effect with this one without being too overbearing. I can distinguish all the fruit flavors in this one, but I can tell you they are all delicious. This is an all-day vape winner for me.
Gummy flavors have often let me down from disposable brands. That’s not the case here. IJOY has done an excellent job of delivering a juicy Peach flavor that’s not overly sweet but is undoubtedly moreish. It’s then supported by a well-balanced undertone of gummy candy flavor. It’s subtle, it’s nuanced, and it’s delightful—another easy all-day fruity vape.
The common theme here is that iJOY has done a great job at balancing the flavors without being too overpowering. That’s definitely the case again with this ‘Sunny Grape’ flavor. It’s a deep juicy grape flavor that’s very authentic. There’s a slight hint of cooling on the exhale, giving it a refreshing lift. Overall a really solid Grape flavor for all those Grape vape lovers.
This is another winner, that strikes the perfect balance between two fruit flavors. You get that sweet ripe Strawberry flavor that hits you instantly, with extra sweet tones of Kiwi shining through. The Kiwi then takes center stage for a perfect juicy explosion on the exhale. Another excellent fruit mix, and another that I could vape all day long.
Wow, the performance from the iJOY Punk disposables is very impressive.
The 1.1Ω mesh coil works flawlessly to deliver an instant hit of real punchy flavor from each disposable. In addition, the Punk operates at 11W, which just feels perfect with the mesh coil. As a result, it delivers a warm, saturated vape that’s really satisfying.
There is absolutely no drop-off in flavor from the mesh coil, and every Punk disposable I used was incredibly consistent all the way to the last few draws.
When you do reach the end of the lifespan of the battery and pre-filled juice, the Punk’s LED light will flash 10 times.
These iJOY disposables have been an absolute ‘Joy’ to use, not just from a flavor standpoint. But they contain a 1200mAh battery; I’ve not had to think about recharging them, and even after extremely heavy use, they were making it past the 4-day mark. So I think most vapers who use them conservatively will get a week’s use out of each disposable, which is great.
The draw from the Punk disposable is very smooth and sits between a medium and tight MTL draw, which is perfect for this type of disposable.
It’s also worth mentioning I had no issues with any leaking or spit back in my time using the Punk.
As for the flavor profiles that we tested, I have to say it seems like iJOY has really knocked it out of the park on the first attempt.
Every single flavor we tested was a stellar all-day vape. They strike the perfect balance between punchy and sweet flavor without being too overpowering. I was seriously impressed with the Lush Ice and the White Gummy flavors. The others were extremely solid as well. It’s a shame we only had 5 samples to try; I’d really love to go through the whole range.
Overall, there’s nothing to complain about with the performance of the iJOY Punk disposables. In fact, it’s probably one of the most impressive disposable vapes I’ve tried recently.
The build quality of the device is fantastic. It has an excellent auto-draw trigger, and the mesh coil delivers a perfect throat hit that’s full of flavor. The battery does a good job of lasting, and even though the device has a 1200mAh battery inside, it’s still very compact.
The flavor range is also really extensive, and we were particularly impressed with the flavors we tried.
iJOY has done a fantastic job with its foray into disposables.
The Punk not only comes in a unique and stylish package, but most importantly, it really delivers on the performance front.
The mesh coils deliver excellent punch flavor, and the flavor profiles of each disposable are really on point.
While I might not be the ideal demographic for the glow-in-the-dark lights of the Punk, I can appreciate that iJOY is trying to be unique in a cluttered market.
I also really like the fast they went with a 1200mAh battery (delivering 4500 puffs) while still keeping it a compact and comfortable-to-use device – highly recommended.
