I recently bought the IJOY Shogun UNIV mod to replace an older mod. Here is my review of this colourful, powerful, feature packed mod from IJOY.
Look & Feel
The IJOY Shogun Univ is a nicely built mod with resin panels on both the front and back. It has a clear OLED display on the side which displays all the required vaping information at a glance. The display is even visible on a bright sunny day which isn’t much use if you live in the UK but still a nice feature. The mod might be on the larger and heavier side with the following dimensions 55mm x 28.4mm x 88mm but its still comfortable to hold and the firing button is in the perfect place making this mod a pleasure to use. It comes in a number of different colour patterns on the resin panels that all look great. It does look a-lot like the VooPoo Drag 2 but looks less like a box.
The Shogun Univ mod has all the usual features that you would expect from a mod including variable wattage which starts at 1W and goes to a maximum of 180W with a resistance range of 0.05ohm to 3.00ohm. It has a temperature range of 149-316°C/300-600°F.
The mod has a good range of output modes:
- Variable Wattage
- Temperature Control (Ni, Ti, SS)
- Power Mode
It takes 2 x 18650 batteries which for this type of mod is pretty standard. It has a centered 510 pin and fits upto a 28mm diameter tank
Unlike some other mods, as soon as you hit the fire button on this mod the power is there. We have used 2 of these mods with a number of tanks including the katana tank, Geek Vape Zeus X and the Dead Rabbit RTA and it performs so well on with all of these tanks. The battery management on this mod is really good. I really like that the display shows each battery with an A and B label which matches the labels inside the battery compartment.
Ease Of Use
The Shogun Univ is very easy to use. The menu is very intuitive and if your anything like me and don’t read instructions you can work out the menu and what buttons do what on the menu very quickly.
My wife bought this mod first and i really liked hers, so when I was looking to replace my old Vaporesso Revenger mod this was the obvious choice. The mod is really well built, the battery door is nice and secure and there is no movement within the battery compartment. The only thing that would be nice with this mod is changeable panels but that’s no deal breaker I really like the IJOY Shogun Univ.
