Curvy and ergonomic, not to mention cute, is the Joyetech Atopack Dolphin. It may be as adorable as a dolphin, but it should be taken seriously as a very good pod mod. It is ideal for new users or experienced vapers looking for on the go mod.

Made with very durable plastic, the Dolphin can be safely taken around in a purse or backpack without suffering any damage. Fitting perfectly in the palm of the hand, it is discreet for some stealth vaping.

A one button design makes it simple to use, but it is also versatile in that it can handle two different heads. A 1.2 Ohm coil and a 0.25 Ohm coil are available as is a child proof head. Since it looks slightly toyish, this is a nice option for parents. Color choices include white, black, orange, yellow and blue.

Features of the Joyetech Atopack Dolphin

The first, most obvious feature is the fact that it does indeed look like a dolphin. This actually makes for an ergonomic shape that fits easily in the hand and can be fired simply. The long “bottlenose” of the mouthpiece is long enough to allow for a cool down of the vapor.

Firing up the juice happens in a proprietary JVIC (Juice Vertical Injection Coil) system. Rather than a top or bottom vapor flow, it comes from the side with a ceramic base for a more efficient and flavorful vape session.

Refilling is very simple and mes-free. There is an airflow vent to regulate how airy or restricted the vape is. Simply cover the vent for a tighter draw.

Besides the already mentioned childproof cartridge, there are two capacity options. One is a 2.0 ml tank, the other is a whopping 6.0ml.

How does It Vape?

This is where the cute appearance should be overlooked. This vapes like a much bigger and more powerful box mod in some ways.

The battery is a 2100mAh size and lasts quite a while. This powers the mod up to 50W.

The unique horizontal juice loading system allows for maximum flavor and the airflow makes for some nice clouds from such a compact unit.

With the 1.2 Ohm coil attached, it is great for either Mouth to Lung vaping. With the 0.25 Ohm coil, expect some nice plumes that can easily fill a small room while Direct to Lung vaping.

How to Use the Dolphin

To turn it on click the button five times and five times to turn it off. There are no temperature settings to scroll through.

Refilling is sort of a top fill. Lean the device to its side and pop open the rubber stopper. Then drip the e-liquid until the max fill line.

For a restricted airflow for Mouth to Lung vaping, there is a rubber sleeve which connects to the mouthpiece.

Charging is fairly quick with the USB cable and a full charge will last most vapers a full day.

How does the Dolphin Compare to the Competition?

Vype Pebble Kit: Similar in style, the downside is the limited juice selection and the silica wick does not extract flavors well.

Envii Fitt: Not as strong a battery and an annoying 6 second shut off makes it a bit more effort to vape than should happen.

Pros & Cons

The Positives

  • Unique design
  • Solidly built
  • Great flavors
  • Nice clouds

Is the Joyetech Atopack Dolphin Worth It?

The answer is a resounding yes. The quality of the vape, the ease of use and the unique style all lend themselves to a high recommended vape pod mod. There is very little to sacrifice vape wise as opposed to many of its competitors. Usually using a pod system means less choice and not much versatility, which is not the case with the Dolphin.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.

    I want to love this device, it’s compact and lightweight. However I’m so utterly displeased with the coil life span that it renders the Dolphin nearly useless. I’ve gotten 3 days max (twice) out of coils and I’ve gone through 3 boxes of them. I won’t be continuing to buy the coils for it as it will be so incredibly costly.
    No reviewers seem to cover this issue. It’s a shame.
