Joyetech Exceed Edge Review
If you’ve ever wanted an all-in-one system that kind of looks like a beard trimmer, Joyetech has got you covered. The Exceed Edge is a super slender, all-in-one design with a stripped-down approach to vaping. While a lot of pod systems and AIOs have opted to add in tons of new features and customization options, the Exceed Edge is more of a throwback to a simpler time. You’ve got replaceable coils, sure, but everything else is about as simple and easy as you can get. As we all know, however, the more basic a device is, the easier it is to screw things up. Let’s find out if Joyetech has exceeded our expectations or if they plummet off the edge with their latest innovation.

Joyetech has a history of making some pretty decent, beginner-friendly vape devices and it seems like the Exceed Edge follows pretty squarely in that tradition. While the Exceed Edge isn’t groundbreaking in any way, overall it is a pretty decent beginner vape which works for those transitioning from combustible cigarettes or experienced vapers looking for an ultra-portable. That having been said, let’s look at reasons you may want to pass up on this thing.
Probably the most notable issue with the Exceed Edge is the lack of adjustable airflow. While we have mentioned that they were clearly going for a simpler, more stripped-down design philosophy here, adjustable airflow is one of those things that’s made such a huge difference in these smaller kits over the years. When it comes to MTL vaping, almost every vaper has their own personal preference. Some prefer that pinhole, cigarette-like MTL, while others like an airy MTL which almost verges on a restricted lung hit. With the Exceed Edge, you’re stuck somewhere in between those two extremes with no way to adjust it. Naturally, this might be fine; this could be how you’d vape it anyway. But that little extra touch sure would have been nice.
The Exceed Edge also includes only one coil, which is never acceptable. Even though it only offers one coil option, two included coils is the industry standard and should always be followed as a general rule of thumb.
Other than that, you’re looking at some rather nitpicky concerns. The fill hole is going to be a little bit small for some of the larger gorilla bottles out there. This isn’t exactly an uncommon issue for these AIO pod-like devices, however, so it’s hard to fault them there. The LED also utilizes different, timed blinking patterns to indicate battery level instead of colors. Kind of a weird choice on their part and one that could easily confuse some people.
On the plus side, the Exceed Edge provides a really satisfying vape. While it’s not the warmest vape on the market, it does provide a decent level of warmth that would certainly work for most people. It also puts out pretty decent flavor with its 1.2ohm coils. When compared with others in its class, the Exceed Edge certainly falls short of the best, i.e. the Caliburn, but is far above the worst contenders in this category too.
It’s also built really nice with an attractive and comfortable form factor. The mouthpiece is a very unique shape and looks kind of like the mouthpiece of a flute or other woodwind instrument. While no other vapes are really doing this, it’s actually surprising comfortable. The body of the device is also super ergonomic, fitting comfortably in your hand and sliding right into your pocket without taking up too much real estate.
There’s not a whole lot to ask of a device like this. You want flavor, portability, convenience, and, ideally, a good look. While the looks are going to be up to individual preference, you certainly get checkmarks in all other categories. If you like the way this device looks and are either a) looking to quit smoking or b) looking to pick up something easy for when you’re on the go, you could do a lot worse than the Exceed Edge.
