Innokin Jem Starter Kit
The Innokin Jem starter Kit is simple and easy to use but a stylish device for a mouth to lung vape, featuring a powerful 1000mAh capacity rechargeable battery which has a 5 stage adjustable wattage control system between 10-13.5W. Low wattage gives a cooler vape and prolongs battery life whilst a higher wattage gives more cloud and flavour. This device uses the Jem tank giving you 2ml capacity of juice with top filling, adjustable airflow and houses a 1.6 ohm replaceable coil.

Ok this predominantly designed for brand new vapers looking for something effective – stylish and easy to use.
It’s powered by an internal 1000mAH battery and has 5 power settings:
10W – 11W – 12W – 13W – 13.5W
I found between 10w and 12w the vape was cool and flavour not as good as the higher settings where the vapour was warm and the flavour popped a lot more.
You scroll through those settings using the up and down buttons and each one lights up clearly – like I said this is about as easy as it gets.
The airflow control is pretty generous for a low powered device with a total of six holes – 3 mirrored on each side.
More on that in the run down on how the JEM performs.
The 2ml top fill tank is very old school to look at reminding me of those old clearomizers we used to use on our ego pen set-ups!
The battery and tank comes in various colour combos and has a lovely almost metallic finish to it.
It’s certainly lightweight and compact and is closer to a vape pen style than a box mod.
Design and Build Quality
It’s an Innokin product so as you might expect it’s put together very well indeed.
The tank comes apart easily enough with nice threading though the top cap is initially very tight – a tiny drop of e-liquid soon loosened things up.
Design wise I have to say it looks great especially in the red version I received.
As I’ve already mentioned it’s as close to a Vape pen style device that a box mod could get.
I can’t stress enough how dainty this is with the battery about the same thickness as a marker pen – as you can see it literally disappears into my hand.
The tank is almost as big as the battery and really is old school looking like one of those very early clearomizers with one of those retro vase shaped proper [lol] Mouth toLung (MTL) drip tips.

Yup – it looks good – feels nice in the hand and comfortable in the mouth – so most importantly how does it vape?
How Does the Innokin JEM/Goby Perform?
OK, once you’re all filled up and ready to vape the JEM really does give a good flavour and surprisingly good clouds for an MTL tank.
Filling is extremely easy as is swapping out the coils which can be done whilst the tank is filled.
Setting your power level is also as easy as it gets and is very responsive flicking through the settings quickly and efficiently.
It’s the airflow that is shall we say a little bit of an overkill.
There’s x6 air flow holes and to get that tight draw that smokers need means you really do have to shut it down to almost half of one hole or is that half of two given they mirror lol.
Any more than that and the vape becomes loose and airy with the merest and I mean merest drop in flavour.
Speaking of flavour I regularly vape on the Innokin Prism tank and the JEM almost matches it – it’s definitely a tasty tank!
- top fill
Battery life as you might expect is very good too and vaping at the max setting of 13.5 watts I was getting 6 to 8 hours before the battery drained.
I’ve been using this for a couple of hours per day since Boxing Day and haven’t had to change coils yet – so the longevity of them looks good.
One minor niggle is the placing of the USB charge port.
It’s on the base which means you either have to lay it flat on its side – or lean it against something.
BTW for fun and science I did lay it on its side filled with juice and had the tiniest amount of seepage through the wide open airflow holes – none with them closed – after an hour so be aware of that! If carrying in a bag or pocket close up the airflow.
Charge time is extremely fast – under an hour from flat – and you can vape whilst charging [pass through
