Joyetech EGO AIO Mansion
Joyetech’s latest AIO kit comes in the form of the EGO Mansion. The Mansion is a flat style AIO system, which features a built-in tank and a 1300mah internal battery. It also features both manual firing through a designated fire button and automatic draw activation.
It uses Joyetech BF style coil heads and has an adjustable airflow cap which connects to the coils.
The EGO Mansion is available in 6 colors; Black, White, Silver, Gold, Orange, and Rose Gold.
Nice design, good battery life, instant draw activation, and pocket-friendly.
Poor coils, lots of flooding and not great lifespan. Too powerful for true MTL.
The Bottom Line
The Mansion feels like a bit of a confused device, it’s not a true MTL device the coils are too powerful for that, and unfortunately, they are not very good. There’s too much flooding and just sub-par performance from the coils for it to provide a good vape experience. Which is a shame because there’s nothing wrong with the device itself.

The EGO AIO Mansion takes a slightly different approach to AIO devices that we have seen from Joyetech in the past, but it is a familiar format that we’ve from Eleaf.
The EGO AIO Mansion is not a pod system and does not have a separate tank. It’s an all-in-one design that has a tank incorporated and just uses replacement coils, like the Eleaf iCare or original Aspire Breeze.
The Mansion, however, is a slightly taller and larger device and has a 1300mAh internal battery. It’s primarily made of plastic and has a textured, almost corrugated body. Unfortunately, because it’s vertical lines, it doesn’t add that much grip, and the Mansion can feel a little slippery at times.
The Mansion comes with a removable cap which covers the mouthpiece, but there’s nowhere for this to be attached to the device while using it, so be prepared to lose it… I have.
Under the protective cap and at the top of the device is all the critical parts of the Mansion. You have the removable mouthpiece, which is a kind of duckbill shape, it’s a press fit into the device and is held by o-rings. I find that sometimes during use, the mouthpiece will start riding up on one side, so always needs a push down to make sure it’s secure. On either side of the mouthpiece are two small airflow slots, which you can easily place a fingernail in to pull the mouthpiece off of the device.
When you remove the mouthpiece, it exposes the top fill port, adjustable airflow, and coil cap. The top-fill uses a silicon plug, which is anchored to the device. It’s a huge plug, which is easy to remove, but when you do the fill hole sits recessed in the device, so can be a little tricky to fit bottle to refill.
On the other side of the device is the combination of an airflow cap and coil. The airflow cap has a small flathead groove in it which can be unscrewed using a small metal plate that is incorporated into the mouthpiece, just like Breeze and iCare. Once you unscrew the airflow cap, you will notice the coil is simply screwed into the bottom of the cap. It’s basically a combination of top airflow and bottom feed coil.
In between the fill port and coil cap you will see a small rounded peg with a hole in it, this is a trigger for draw activation, which works well with this device. However, it’s not the only way to fire the device as the Mansion also has a fire button.
The fire button is located on one side of the device, with a micro USB charge port on the other, and they both sit beneath two reasonably sized viewing window.
The fire button can be used as such, but also used to switch the device on/off and to change the color of the LED lights that glow inside the viewing window. I tend to use the draw activation for vaping, as it’s a smooth instant action with the Mansion, and only use the fire button to tap once so it lights up inside and I can see remaining liquid level. The Mansion has a 2ml liquid capacity.
The EGO Mansion AIO is not a bad looking device, neither is it particularly exciting.
It’s a simple, clean looking kind of starter kit which we’ve come to expect from Joyetech, one which should appeal to a wide variety of vapers.
It’s available in Black, White, Silver, Gold, Orange, and Rose Gold. All of which look quite tasteful.
The only thing I don’t like about the design of the Mansion is the dust protector cap, it’s good to have one, but I wish you had an option to clip it to the bottom of the device when in use.
In general, the build quality of the Mansion is good and in line with most Joyetech products.
The only two parts I think could’ve been executed a little better, are the fire button and the mouthpiece.
The fire button is a little small and does not protrude enough so it can be a bit difficult to place without looking. However, it is quite responsive and clicky.
The mouthpiece as I mentioned above, has a tendency to come loose on one side. It’s never fallen off, but I think maybe the o-ring tolerances could’ve been a little better.
The EGO Mansion is the perfect size for a pocket-friendly device with an amply sized battery.
It measures in at 103mm tall, 33mm wide and 17.5mm thick, and it only weighs 83g.
So not only does it fit comfortably in the hand, but can be squeezed into some skinny jean pockets.
The EGO Mansion is a direct output device like many of these small AIO devices. That means as the battery depletes so will the vaping experience.
Fortunately, the Mansion has quite a large internal battery at 1300mAh.
The device can be fired either manually using the designated fire button or through draw activation. The draw activation on the Mansion is one of the most responsive I’ve used; it’s very good.
The Mansion is charged via micro USB, there’s no quick charge, but there is passthrough vaping.
We have protections here, battery protection of over-charging, over-current and over-discharging.
When the device is on you can change the color of light in the tank by pressing the fire button 3 times.
Then with each press, it shifts through the following colors: red, yellow, green, blue, indigo, white and purple. You can also switch off the light if you prefer a stealthier setup.
While this is great, I feel like Joyetech could’ve have used these LED’s in a more functional way for battery status indication.
The only way to check your battery level is clicking the fire button once when in standby, and the light either pulses slowly for high battery or fast for low battery – Poor implementation.
While refilling the Mansion is not too difficult, it’s also not the best implementation we’ve seen.
You have to remove the top cap, then the mouthpiece, then the rubber plug which is fine. But it’s the fact that the fill port sits low down from the edge of the device that makes it a little fiddly.
The Joyetech EGO AIO Mansion comes with 2 coils which is great. They are both SS316 0.6Ohm BF MTL coils.
Unfortunately, as with many of these devices, the coils are its Achilles heel.
I don’t think these coils produce the most prominent flavor from juices, they also are prone to becoming flooded, and finally, they don’t have the greatest life span.
I tried both 50/50 juices and 70/30 in the Mansion. If I left the device sitting on the side for a while and came back to vape it, the coil was always flooded, and there were untold amounts of spit back, with either type of juice.
Once I was able to run a few tanks worth of juice through the Mansion, I noticed them quickly losing performance after about 6-8ml of juice, not that great in my opinion.
As you could probably tell from my ‘Coils’ section above, I was quite disappointed in the overall performance of the eGo Mansion.
While there’s nothing inherently wrong with the device itself, it is let down by poor performing coils.
Also if you are after a true MTL style device, then the Mansion also falls short in this department because of the airflow.
The Mansion has such wide open airflow that I don’t believe it’s an MTL style device.
Even when you shut the airflow right down the draw is not tight enough. Also, the coils being 0.5Ohm are better suited to a restricted direct lung draw.
When you open up the airflow a little, the Mansion is capable of a nice smooth but slightly restrictive DTL style draw, and that’s really what this device should be marketed as.
While the flavor produced from these coils and the Mansion isn’t terrible, and some may find it acceptable, it is muted.
I feel there are far better small devices that take replaceable coils in this category, the Aspire Breeze 2 being one example.
This is one strong point for the Mansion; the battery life is excellent.
While I’m not a huge fan of the battery status indication, a will say it doesn’t matter too much as the Mansion can easily see you through a full days vaping.
- Decent looks
- Good build quality
- Draw activation works well
- Good battery size
- Comes with 2 coils
- Easy to see juice level
- Passthrough Vaping
- Leaky flooding coils
- Poor coil life
- Not a true MTL device
- Mouthpiece doesn’t stay fixed
- Battery status indicator is poor
- AFC is fiddly to adjust
Overall I have to say that the EGO Mansion is a bit of a fall in my opinion, which is mainly due to the performance of the coils.
It is possible that Joyetech may release other resistances or styles of coils that work a lot better in this setup, and I hope they do.
However, at present these coils flood worse than any other AIO device I’ve used BF style coils in. They are also too powerful to be used as MTL coils in this device, and a far better suited as restricted DTL.
All of Which leaves the Mansion a bit of a confused underperforming mess.
Which is a real shame because there are some good ideas here, I like the style of the device, and it has excellent battery life in a pocket-friendly design.
Unfortunately, Joyetech has swung and missed on this occasion.
