IJOY’s limitless supply of high-end atomisers has just increased by a factor of one, thanks to the recent release of their latest Tornado 150 sub ohm tank with an RTA deck also included in the package.
Yet another ingenious design from these guys combines the chimney and coil into one piece, giving you the chance to experience immense flavour and vapour production from a pre-built 0.3Ω (316L SSW) coil that can produce up to 150W of pure pleasure. And I don’t say that lightly.
It’s not just about the performance factor these days but the style and finishing which carries a certain amount of kudos. So, I’m pleased to say that the Tornado 150 will not only perform at the highest level but look the part too!
With so much competition around, design engineers have to be at the very top of their game and IJOY’s most defiantly seem to be at the top of theirs of late.
So What’s all the fuss about? Let’s take a more in-depth look and find out!

1x IJOY Tornado 150 Sub Ohm Tank
1x 0.3Ω (80-150W) pre-installed (Stainless Steel Wire)

For the purpose of conducting this review, I have used a selection of different E-Liquids with varying PG/VG combinations including an 87%VG 13%PG from Five Fold Vapor and a 70%VG 30%PG from Dark Market. I have also used the latest SMOK Alien device to test it on as well.
For consumers based in the UK & Europe, these Premium E-Liquids can now be purchased by following this Link.
E-Liquids may contain Diacetyl (DA) and acetyl Propionyl (AP) or other carcinogenic ingredients or disease-causing substances, so please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews.
People can suffer from allergies to chemicals that may be present in the makeup of certain types of E-liquids or produced in their vapour. People can become sensitive to, or even allergic to Nickel or Titanium used in Temperature Controlled designed coils.
Once Again, please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews. Also, check with your E-liquid supplier or the equipment manufacturers directly before purchase and use.
You might find this range of calculators provided by Steam Engine particularly useful, so thank you to Lars for allowing me to include them in my reviews. These calculators are currently under development, and the information that they contain may change at any time without notice. Please read the How It Works section for a more in-depth understanding.
The Tornado 150 comes with a pre-installed 0.3Ω (80-150W) coil head. You have two furthers options to choose from which include the 0.25Ω (40-80W) coil or the RTA section.
Removing the base gives direct access to the pre-installed coil, which only requires a counter clockwise turn to remove it and replace it with a more suitable alternative if you wish. Remember to prime the coil you have selected prior to using it in order to avoid the dreaded dry hit!
Once you have done this and inserted the base section back into the bottom of the tank you can unscrew the chuff cap from the top, also in a counter-clockwise direction and fill the 4.2ml tank from the sides remembering to avoid the centre chimney.
Attach the Tornado 150 to your device making sure it will fire the wattages suggested for this tank by the manufacturer (Check with the local B&M store prior to purchase) and you should be good to go.
Building The RTA
Begin by unscrewing the chamber wall and loosening the Philips screws on the top of both posts. Insert the coil/coils making sure one end connects to the positive post and the other end is attached to the negative post. Tighten the screws back up to secure each coil into place removing any excess wire with your cutters.
Repeat this process on the opposite side with a dual coil build and you should now have both positioned ready to insert the organic cotton. You can use an Allen key to align the coil/coils if they are not yet set in a horizontal position.
Remember at this point to make sure that the coils are not directly touching either of the posts or could come into contact with the outer casing when it is replaced causing a short.
Also, make sure each of the coils is centred over both of the bottom airflow inlets for maximum vapour production. Use your ohm’s meter to check the resistance of your build and check for shorts before test firing and using your build.
Next, attach the open deck to your device and pulse the coils using ceramic tweezers if required to make any small adjustments to the spacing of each coil in order to remove any hotspots, looking for an even glow across each of the coils surface areas.
Cut one or two strips of organic cotton to length depending on whether you have chosen to use either one or two coils in your build and insert these through each coil, making sure you have allowed enough at both ends to fit into the juice wells below.
Apply your e-liquid making sure the coil/coils and the organic cotton are coated sufficiently to avoid dry burning the organic cotton prior to one final test firing to make sure everything is working correctly.
Replace the outer casing checking that neither of the coils is touching either the posts or outer wall, as you do so.
The IJOY Tornado 150 is yet another aesthetically pleasing design from top to bottom with a performance and high quality of finish to match.
Using a wide-bore Delrin chuff cap not only helps to dissipate the build-up of heat but by using a shorter, flatter mouthpiece it also helps to improve the overall flavour production by reducing the distance between the mouthpiece and the coil heads.
Removing the chuff cap for purpose of filling is easily achieved thanks to the knurling which has been placed around the circumference at the bottom of the cap. Attention to detail is something we should expect with IJOY products it seems!
Holding up to 4.2mls of E-Liquid is sufficient for a tank that has been primarily designed to be used at higher temperature settings so it will only require you to fill it up twice daily for the average vaper.
The glass section is held securely in place by the use of two O-rings at the bottom of the tank and one at the top.
The really clever part for me is the inclusion of a chimney purposely built into the top of coil heads which allows the chuff cap to be attached directly to it via the threading at the top. The added bonus with this is that you can fill the tank up completely without the fear of it overflowing into the centre chimney.
The RTA section has been very well constructed with buttery smooth threading, two large air intakes that should allow for even the largest coil types to get sufficient air circulation around them intensifying the flavour.
Four spacious juice inlets have been added, two on each side greatly reducing any chance of a dry hit, and lastly a gold plated connector at the base of the RTA itself.
Flavour I have to say is the best I’ve personally experienced with a pre-made coil. There is ample airflow thanks to the wide inlet on the coils themselves and a fully adjustable airflow control ring with two air intakes situated on either side and positioned at the base of the tank.
IJOY have thoughtfully included a gold plated fully adjustable 510 connector with peak insulation for improved electrical conductivity so you should not experience any problems when connecting it to your chosen device.
One small point worth mentioning here is the inclusion of an anti-spit back guard on future releases due to the close proximity of the coil to the mouthpiece?
To sum up the Tornado 150 from IJOY quickly for you in my opinion, If you’re looking for an atomiser that looks very classy, has an ability to please the flavour chasers amongst you with very good vapour production to boot, and has high quality finish on all parts, then look no further at this present moment in time as it appears this is currently the best all round performer in its class.
