What Is it?
The GTRS VBOY 222w is another high-end box mod from GTRS and is an upgraded version of the previous 200w VBOY. It features the excellent YiHi SX520 chipset, and this time GTRS have decided to keeps things a little more conventional looking with a boxy shape with a large fire button on one side, keeping it comfortable to hold and convenient to operate.
It is powered by dual 20700 batteries and can fire up to a maximum output of 222W and supports various TC wires & work modes. The new 222w VBOY also comes with a battery adapter that allows it to use dual 18650 batteries.

The GTRS VBOY 222 is available in 6 colors: Black, Silver, Red, Blue, Gold and Rose Gold.
Who is it for?
Anybody looking for a device that’s capable of using both dual 20700 or 18650’s that uses one of the best chipsets on the market, but at a more affordable price.

The VBOY 200W was a great success from GTRS, with many reviews praising its build quality and the impressive performance of the SX500 YIHI chip.
The one minor gripe that some had with it was the placement of the fire button, which was due to the YIHI board. The VBOY 220W not only utilizes the latest SX520 chip so we would expect even better performance, but it also comes in a more traditional shape and format, which eradicates the fire button issue.
It does mean that it loses that touch of originality when it comes to its design, and it does look somewhat boxy, simply blending into the pack of dual-battery mods.
We would have rather seen a more ergonomic design like it’s predecessor. But the reason that may not have been possible is the other main feature of this device, which is that it can utilize 20700 batteries.
So on paper, this looks like it could be another great device from GTRS. Nevertheless, we’d wait to just how good the build quality and materials are before we pass full judgment.
