Smok G-Priv and G-Priv Pro Review

Smoktech’s G-Priv collection is home to some of the vaping giant’s mightiest kits. Do the new 80W G-Priv and G Priv Pro Pod Kits deliver the same incredible performance in a more compact, pod mod form?

Is there a style of vape kit that Smok hasn't hit out of the park? Whether you enjoy pocketable stealth vapes like the disposable Smok Mbar, versatile pod kits like the bestselling Smok Nord or Scar P5, classic pen-style vapes like the Smok Stick N18 or mighty beefcakes like the iconic Smok Species – there doesn’t appear to be a style of vape device that Smok hasn’t mastered.

The range of Smok devices now available to vapers is staggering, but even in a crowded field, there are some kits, like the G-Priv series of heavyweight sub-ohm devices, that beg to be noticed over the others.

Smok’s G-Priv devices, like the G-Priv 3, paired exceptionally refined, powerful box mods humming with advanced features with Smok’s game-changing sub-ohm tanks like the TFV16 Lite.

With the arrival of the G-Priv 3 Pod kit, Smok have compacted the brute horsepower of its bigger cousins into a device that offers plenty of punch, superior ergonomic design and a more portable form factor, creating what might be their best Pod Mod yet.

What are the G-Priv and G-Priv Pro Pod kits?

With the Smok G-Priv Pod Kit And G-Priv Pro Pod kit, you get a max power output of 80W, ideal for rich, flavoursome sub-ohm vaping. That power comes from an internal 2500mAh battery on the stock G-Priv pod kit, or an external 18650 battery on the G-Priv Pod Pro version.

Beneath the hood, both kits run Smok’s advanced IQ-S chipset which utilises a 32-bit processor to offer coil activation speeds of 0.001s. In addition to a host of safety protections, the G-Priv and G-Priv Pro pod kits feature intelligent coil recognition, multiple power modes and a crystal-clear colour screen to display all your settings and usage data, while super-fast USB-C charging lets you power up your device quicker than ever. With the G-Priv Pro Pod Kit, the external battery gives you the freedom to have a spare battery charged in an external battery charger.

The ergonomic, cuboid design of the G-Priv Pod Kit is further enhanced by the large fire button that takes up a whole side of the device for supreme comfort and a satisfying, tactile response. That super-large fire switch really makes the kit a pleasure to use. Elsewhere, a sliding switch lets you adjust the airflow to your preference and two inlet vents further enable a rich, flavoursome and immensely satisfying draw.

Crowning both devices is the new G-Priv Pro Pod, a 2ml capacity pod with a unique sliding top mechanism that flicks the mouthpiece away to reveal the refill port, helping to prevent leaks.

The G-Priv Pod is compatible with Smok’s LP2 coils which offer incredible flavour thanks to their mesh coil technology and both kits include 1 x LP2 Meshed 0.23ohm DL Coil and 1 x LP2 Meshed 0.4ohm Coil. As a sub-ohm device, the Smok G-Priv Pro is best suited to high-VG sub-ohm e-liquids.

Who is the G-Priv Pod Kit for?

If you love producing rich, billowing clouds and exquisite flavour from your favourite high-VG e-liquids, from a device that’s simple to use and easy to carry around, then the G-Priv and G-Priv Pro pod kits could be perfect for you.

Both kits are highly portable and feel great in the hand, while the easy-to-read menu and adjustable settings provide enough customisability to let you tailor the kit to your exact preferences.

And then there’s the brute horsepower both devices manage to pack into such a compact form. With a max power of 80W, and enough play to experiment with different coils, your sub-ohm experience can be entirely unique to you.

There are quite a few sub-ohm pod devices available now, but few bear the precision-engineering, premium design and incredible performance that Smok has brought to the G-Priv and G-Priv Pro Pod Kits.

Review: Vapouriz Vpod Pro Vape Kit

Sleek and discreet, lightweight yet powerful, the new improved Vpod Pro is a pod kit for all vapers…

When Vapouriz launched the Vpod, vapers were impressed by the pod kit’s slimline ergonomics and exceptional performance. But we all know that innovation never sleep, something that aptly describes the restless industry we know and love as vaping.

Which is why Vapouriz, the UK’s leading vaping manufacturer for nearly a decade, decided the push the potential of the fantastic little Vpod as far as possible. The new-look Vpod Pro possesses all the great qualities of the original Vpod, but with several exciting new features and novel design changes that make it one of the best performing, and easiest to use, pod kits today. How did they do it? They listened to the vapers themselves.

Vapouriz didn’t just take direction from fans of the original Vpod, they listened carefully to the needs of newer vapers, and customers who really want to replace smoking with a safer, more rewarding alternative to traditional cigarettes but haven’t yet settled on a device that truly meets all their needs.

The Vpod Pro pod kit is the simple-to-use, discreet and powerful device that smokers have been waiting for to begin their vaping journeys, and offers a world of flavour, performance and convenience unmatched by most other refillable pod kits.

New Design

The Vpod Pro is slightly taller than the original, but replaces the cylindrical design with a slimmer, flatter profile with softly curved edges that make the super-lightweight device feel great in the hand. The Vpod Pro feels great on the lips too, thanks to the smooth, comfortable mouthpiece – also known as a ‘drip tip’. Together, they create a truly discreet, pocket-friendly vape that can go anywhere you do. And that’s good news for both newer vapers and more experienced vapers who don’t always want to carry around chunky box mods or long pen-style kits, when they’re out and about.

Choose the Vpod Pro that suits your style: Sleek, stealthy Black, sophisticated Rose Gold, or iridescent Rainbow.

New Technology

Under the hood, the Vpod Pro houses a powerful, quick-firing 850mAh battery for reliable all-day use. The Vpod Pro also contains more advanced features than the original such as an innovative vibration alert system that helps you seamlessly track your usage throughout the day. The device emits a single vibration after 50 puffs, and two vibrations after 100 puffs, putting you firmly in control of your nicotine intake. The tactile fire button flashes green at full charge, yellow at medium charge and a red light tells you exactly when to recharge using the Vpod Pro’s modern USB-C connector. And because the Vpod Pro now comes with a Type-C USB connection, something pod lovers have been clamouring for a while, it has never been quicker to charge your Vpod Pro.

Best of all, the Vpod Pro allows for single-button operation as well as autodraw activation. Simply take a pull on the you would a cigarette and you'll be amazed at how smooth and satisfying the draw sensation is on the Vpod Pro.

Same Great Flavour

The Vpod Pro is also one of the most versatile vape systems ever made, allowing you to use most kinds of e-liquids, from Classic/High PG50/50Nicotine Salts and even CBD e-liquids. Whichever e-liquid you use, the Vpod Pro’s internal 1.2ohm Dual Coil build ensures your vape juice always tastes its best.

And there’s no need to replace the coil when it’s spent; simply dispose of the whole pod at the end of its life and replace with a new one. And because the pods are attached with strong magnets, you’ll never experience a loose or rattling pod on the Vpod Pro.

Freedom at your Fingertips

The Vpod Pro pod kit is the simple, discreet and powerful device that smokers have been waiting for to start their vaping journey. The VPOD Pro’s versatility and performance will help steer your cravings away from cigarettes, replacing them with incredible flavour and satisfaction you can rely on.

Finding freedom from smoking just got easier, thanks to the brand new Vpod Pro pod kit from Vapouriz. This premium-quality refillable pod kit has been designed to effortlessly replace your cigarette habit with a safer, more rewarding alternative that’s so simple to use and relieves cravings instantly.

Pocket Fuel E-Liquid

One of the UK’s most iconic and influential e-liquid brands is back, in a collection of stunning shortfills that include bold new flavours and some old favourites given a fresh twist…

Back in 2015, vaping was well on its way from being a niche interest to a globally recognised, Public Health England-endorsed method for safely switching away from cigarettes and the harms of smoking. Here in the UK, 2015 saw the launch of two exciting new lines of e-liquid at that year’s VapExpo in Paris, France. They were Pocket Fuel and Pure Evil, and vaping would never be the same again.

Pocket Fuel and Pure Evil were attempts by Vapouriz, one of the UK’s leading vaping pioneers, to explore new flavour territory, worlds away from their bestselling range of ‘classic’ e-liquid flavours. Although adored by thousands of vapers for their delicious simplicity, then and now, classic flavours such as strawberry, cherry and menthol were, by 2015, fairly ubiquitous. Vapouriz saw an opening to launch bold new flavours that pushed the boundaries of what e-liquid could be and what vaping meant to vapers.

Pocket Fuel arrived in a riot of colours, injecting the fun back into vaping with flavours never before experienced by vapers, including bestsellers Pink Fizz, Key Lime Pie and Rainbow candy. Pure Evil, on the other hand, became a byword for vaping cool, evoking the seven deadly sins across even more sinful flavours of Raspberry and Coconut, Mango and Rice, Vanilla Custard and Spiced Apples.

But, like most industries, vaping never stays still for long. Evolution is as vital to vaping as innovation, which is why after five years Vapouriz have evolved Pocket Fuel into a brand new range of incredible shortfill flavours, while bidding a fond farewell to Pure Evil – but not without absorbing some of that line’s wickedest flavours into the all new Pocket Fuel shortfill collection.

The new Pocket Fuel line has been crafted to provide all the colour and flavour you’d expect from Pocket Fuel, housed in convenient 50ml shortfills bottles. These contain 80VG/20PG nicotine-free e-liquid that use only the highest quality ingredients and are fully TPD compliant. You can tailor the nicotine content of your e-liquid using 10ml nicotine booster shots, or simply enjoy all the great flavour without nicotine.

Let’s take a tour of the new Pocket Fuel line-up, to get your taste buds well and truly tingling…

VOOPOO Drag Nano Review

Personally, I love the Drag range from VOOPOO. Whether it's the stunning looks that the resin finish provides, the iconic DRAG branding on the side or the hugely impressive GENE chip I knew these were the kits for me after the first 'drag' (Pun intended.....)

As a result, I am excited to get my hands on the new Drag Nano for the first time. A quick look at the stats confirmed this kit was going to be a hit: Small, convenient and fast firing with the famous GENE chip. It even comes with a chain styled lanyard - wearing your vape kit around your neck is not for me, but I can see why this might appeal to some.

It's a looker too, available in seven different resin colours and the familiar DRAG branding on the side.

Breaking it down, the Drag Nano has a 750 mAh battery which can go from 0 to full charge in just an hour. Whilst 750 mAh doesn't sound that much when compared to some of the Drag Nano's bulkier competition, VOOPOO claim 350 puffs from a full a charge, so it certainly doesn't feel small.

The huge plus point of this pod kit really is the new GENE chip, aptly named the GENE.POD chip! The ability to personalise your vaping experience by controlling the output shouldn't go unnoticed, this isn't a feature available on the majority of pod vape kits on the market.

The pods, just like the Drag Nano are small and compact. With a 1ml capacity, they come with a 1.8 ohm coil pre-installed, this makes it perfect for either Nicotine salts e-liquid, 50VG 50PG e-liquid or even classic liquids.

What You Get - VOOPOO Drag Nano Pod Kit:

VOOPOO Drag Nano

Nano pod

Chain necklace (cool)

USB cable

User manual

Specs:

Size: 54.5x35x11mm

Output: 3.2-4.2V

Battery: 750mAh (Internal)

GENE Pod chip

Coils: 1.8ohm

This kit has been eagerly anticipated by all of us here at Vapestore and is set to become one of the top vape kits of the year.

Best Starter Vape Kits

Getting started on your vaping journey can be a very confusing prospect. With so much technical lingo to sift through and constant references to ohms law, resistance ranges and voltage outputs, you could be forgiven for thinking you need a physics degree just to take up the practise…

But before you dismiss vaping as an elitist hobby which requires specialist knowledge to become an exclusive member, let us help to provide some clarity on the best basic kits to get you going.

First off, it's worth outlining the different types of devices you’re likely to come across when shopping for your first starter kit. A ‘classic’ kit, sometimes referred to as a ‘plus-ohm’ kit, is a basic e-cigarette setup which is usually slim, compact and similar in form to a pen. Classic kits use coils with a resistance of 1ohm or higher and are compatible with PG-dominant e-liquids.

Classic Kits

A classic kit tends to be the choice of new vapers looking to replace a tobacco habit as the inhalation style is similar to that of a traditional cigarette. When using a classic kit, you must first draw the vapour into your mouth and then down into the lungs rather than breathing the vapour directly into your lungs, as is the case with other styles of kit. Another aspect which makes classic kits a great option for the novice vaper is their simple, straightforward design and uncomplicated nature of operation. Generally, the use of a classic starter kit requires little to no previous experience or knowledge of vaping to get up and running.

Vapouriz Fuse Kit

The Vapouriz FUSE kit has reached iconic status in the classic vaping world thanks to its consistent, reliable nature and easy usability. The award-winning Vapouriz FUSE kit boasts the very latest in electronic cigarette technology and is perhaps one of the most recognisable and iconic classic kits out there. The perfect option for classic vaping and smoking cessation, the FUSE is slimline, stylish and extremely easy to operate for the novice vaper with no complicated settings to adjust. Simply click the power button five times in quick succession to power the device on or off and easily observe your e-liquid levels through the clear, robust clearomizer (tank) included with the kit.

We recommend pairing the FUSE kit with one of our sumptuous, satisfying Vapouriz Classic e-liquids which are available in a variety of flavours to suit all tastes. We also have a selection of tobacco-flavoured classic e-liquids to effectively replace the taste sensation of a traditional tobacco cigarette, making the swap easier than ever before.

Vapouriz x Innokin V-Mini Kit

The V-Mini Plus Ohm Kit is the result of an exciting collaboration between Vapouriz and industry giant Innokin, culminating in a sleek, compact and seriously-stylish bit of kit. With its simple operation and quick, easy personalisation functions, The V-Mini is a perfect option for new vapers looking for a classic kit with some added punch.

Specifically designed for mouth-to-lung vaping, the V-Mini boasts several wattage variations for a perfectly-tailored vape every time. Choose from power settings of 10w to 13.5w to suit your e-liquid of choice, whilst viewing all of your power and battery settings on a clear, comprehensible LED display. Opt for a lower wattage if you prefer a cooler vape, and a higher wattage to facilitate huge cloud production and amazing flavour.

The V-Mini is compatible with both classic e-liquids and 50/50 e-liquid, so why not browse our exclusive range of Vapouriz-own liquids to find your perfect flavour? We’ve got mind-blowing menthols, succulent fruits, indulgent desserts and everything in between in our Vapouriz Premium and Vapouriz 50/50 ranges.

Innokin Endura T18-II

The Endura T18-II from Innokin is the updated model of the popular Endura T18 and proudly bears the title of one of the world’s bestselling vape devices.

With a battery capacity of 1300mAh, the T18-II boasts 30% more capacity than its T18 predecessor making for some serious cloud production and amazing flavour payoff for its compact size.  Unlike most pen-style kits which generally only have pre-set modes, the T18-II allows you to select your preferred heat and airflow settings from a variety of options for a tailored vape which suits your exact preferences.

Three LED lights located above the firing button indicate battery status each time you draw on the device, letting you know exactly when it’s time to recharge. The mouthpiece is kept clean and hygienic thanks to a magnetic cover which conveniently attaches to the bottom of the device when not in use.

The Endura T18-II performs best with classic e-liquids with a VG content of 60% or lower, such as our Vapouriz classic and Vapouriz 50/50 ranges. Browse our extensive selection of e-liquids and find a delicious companion for your Endura T18-II kit.

Sub Ohm Kits

Another style of vape which will likely crop up again and again in your search results when hunting for a starter kit is known as ‘sub ohm’ and refers to an e-cigarette device which uses coils with a resistance range of less than 1ohm. Kits and coils of this nature are best suited to high-VG e-liquids which are thicker in consistency than classic liquids and favoured for their intense flavour profiles. Sub ohm vaping can sometimes be considered as more of a hobbyist practise than a means to smoking cessation, as sub ohm e-liquids are often sold nicotine-free so that the user can enjoy the flavour of the e-liquid rather than experiencing relief from cravings. If desired, nicotine can be added to the sub ohm e-liquid by the user with the use of a nicotine shot.

Aspire PockeX AIO

The Aspire PockeX is the ultimate All-in-One (AIO) vape kit and is a great beginner’s sub-ohm device to get you started on your vaping journey. The PockeX comes with a pre-installed 0.6ohm stainless steel Nautilus X U-Tech coil for amazing flavour payoff when used with any sub ohm e-juice, whilst a wide bore drip tip and large air flow system delivers fantastically-thick vapour production.

Aspire Cygnet Revvo

Aspire’s stunning Cygnet kit is powered by a single 18650 battery, offering a maximum output of 80 watts and an unbelievably comfortable vaping experience.

The curved edges of the Cygnet make this an extremely ergonomic kit, fitting snugly in the hand and pocket for amazing portability.

A variety of safety features help to ensure a secure vaping experience, keeping you well-protected both during vaping and when travelling with the kit. Some of these peace-of-mind enhancing features include automatic cutoff, over-discharge protection, overheat protection and short-circuit protection. The Cygnet also supports various modes including Variable Voltage, Variable Wattage and Bypass modes.

The Cygnet kit comes complete with the innovative Revvo Mini tank which boasts a fully adjustable top airflow system, drawing air down, over and around the coil to effectively maximise vapour and flavour production.

The Cygnet Revvo is compatible with all high-VG sub ohm e-liquids.

Smok Species Kit

Another great starter sub ohm kit is Smok’s hugely-popular Species kit. Driven by dual 18650 batteries, the brand-new Species kit from Smok is capable of producing a massive 230 watts of output power for massive vapour clouds loaded with delicious flavour.

An upgraded user interface delivers state of the art vaping technology which can be monitored via a 1.45'' high-definition touch screen. The screen displays such information as battery status, puff monitoring and intelligent atomiser recognition and also allows you to scroll through a selection of safety features. These features include a 10-second cut-off function, over-heating and over-discharge protection and short-circuit protection – all of which contribute to a safer, more reliable vaping experience.

The Species is supplied with the successful TFV8 Baby V2 tank, which has a huge selection of compatible coil options depending on the type of vape you prefer.

Pod Kits

Pod kits are another great option for individuals who don’t currently have a great deal of vaping knowledge and are looking to give up their traditional tobacco habit. A pod kit is a lightweight, portable device which uses pre-filled or refillable pods in place of a standard tank. Pre-filled pods generally contain a high nicotine or nic salt e-liquid, making them a great choice for anyone looking to quit smoking. Some pod kits feature refillable pods which can be filled with your e-liquid of choice and generally perform best with a classic, 50/50 or nic salt e-liquid.

So now that we’ve established the different styles of starter vape kits, we can begin to advise you on the best kits on the market from each category and delve into which kits specifically would be ideally suited to your personal needs.

Smok Nord Kit

The Nord kit from Smok is an ultra-compact, ultra-lightweight pod kit which looks just as good as it performs.

A 1100mAh battery powers this small but capable device, creating generous vapour production and amazing flavour when used with any classic or nic salt e-liquid.

The Nord offers fantastic versatility with two compatible coils included in the kit. The Nord Mesh coil has a resistance of 0.6ohms and is perfect for direct lung vaping, while the Nord regular coil offers a resistance of 1.4ohms which is more suited to the mouth-to-lung style of vaping similar to that of a traditional cigarette.

Smok SLM Kit

This impossibly-light all-in-one kit pod system is another great option for new vapers looking to make the switch from traditional tobacco. With an integrated 250mAh battery, the SLM is slender but powerful and comfortably generates big vapour clouds and intense flavour with any classic or nic salt e-liquid. The SLM is activated by simply inhaling on the device, completely doing away with the need for awkward firing buttons. An LED indicator light located on the front of the device keeps you informed of your battery status, flashing four times in quick succession to alert you to low battery and remaining sold white to indicate vapour being produced during inhalation.

The SLM is perfect for anyone looking for a satisfying mouth-to-lung vaping experience similar to the inhalation style of a traditional cigarette. With its slimline design and feather-light weight, the SLM is a great on-the-go kit, fitting perfectly into your pocket or bag for quick access to keep your cravings satisfied.

Juul

The JUUL starter kit has taken the UK vape market by storm with its simple user interface, consistently-satisfying vapour delivery and instant relief from pesky nicotine cravings. The Juul boasts everything a smoker needs to make the switch and is extremely easy to use thanks to its ‘no button’ interface and complete absence of confusing settings to adjust.

The Juul uses 2ml e-liquid pods pre-filled with a choice of four deliciously-satisfying flavours: Golden Tobacco, Glacier Mint, Mango Nectar, Apple Orchard and Royal Crème. Each pod should last roughly 200 puffs: the equivalent of 20 tobacco cigarettes.

Crossover Vape Kits

A ‘crossover’ kit is a vape device which can accommodate both classic and sub ohm coil options, giving you the freedom to swap the coils according to the style of vaping you would like to experience.

Vapouriz V-Switch

Compact, lightweight and fabulously-versatile, the V-Switch packs plenty of choice into a simple, easy to navigate interface. In place of a traditional LED screen, the V-Switch features one power button and a single mode button which allows you to scroll effortlessly through three pre-set wattage levels. Three colour LED lights indicate your current wattage setting, with a low option of 13-14w, a middle option of 16-18w, and a higher setting of 30-35w. The lower and middle wattage options are ideal for mouth-to-lung vaping and mimic the restricted draw one might experience when smoking a cigarette. The higher wattage option creates the cool draw synonymous with sub-ohm vaping, generating thick clouds of vapour and intense, rich flavour.

Because the V-Switch is capable of alternating between classic and sub-ohm wattage settings, you have the freedom to use any PG/VG ratio e-liquid with this device. Browse our extensive collection for classic Vapouriz Premium liquids, and flavourful sub ohm options from our Double Drip, Pure Evil and Ohm Baked series. If you fancy something in-between, be sure to check out our brand-new Vapouriz 50/50 range, which is an equal blend of Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol. This formulation creates a perfect base for enviably-thick clouds bursting with clear, full-bodied flavour.

Aspire Zelos II Kit

The Zelos 2.0 kit from Aspire is a simple yet powerful device capable of offering up to 50 watts using either a sub ohm or classic coil. Following on from the massive success of the original Zelos kit, the 2.0 version boasts a variety of modes to suit your particular style of vaping including VV, VW, Bypass and various TC modes.

The 2.0 kit also includes the new and improved tank Nautilus 2S tank which features redesigned airflow adjustment to accommodate various coil options and your preferred amount of vapour and flavour intensity. For a tighter draw when using a classic coil for mouth-to-lung vaping, simply turn the airflow dial to select the smaller holes. To achieve a looser draw which produces thick vapour when using a sub ohm coil, turn the airflow channel so that the slot is completely open and enjoy seriously fluffy clouds of intense flavour.

Vaping Rules

As you strut down the street taking deep inhales on your e-cigarette device, throwing candy-coated clouds into the air with joyful abandon, take a second to consider whether or not you are exercising proper vaping etiquette. Yes, there is such a thing and yes it is extremely important to observe if we’re to keep our beloved hobby / stop-smoking aid from being vilified and unfairly compared to the offensive practise of smoking.

As a general rule, you should never vape in places where it is also forbidden to smoke. This includes such locations as restaurants, bars, cinemas and any spot in which the general public congregates.

Although some pubs do permit vaping indoors, it is always best to check with the staff behind the bar beforehand rather than just assuming that, because it’s not a cigarette, it’s OK. Pubs are still an enclosed space which tend to be occupied by many individuals at once, and some of these individuals might be offended by large clouds of vapour for health or personal reasons, so do your bit to keep vaping in the public’s good graces and always double check.

cinema2

Similarly, it is also best to keep your clouds away from anywhere where food is being served in case the presence of your vapour, or indeed the smell of it, puts people off their meal (even if your juice is ultra-delicious!).

Even though vaping and smoking are extremely different, you wouldn’t like to passively breathe in someone’s cigarette smoke while you're eating or going about your business in public, so it's not fair to make others inhale your vapour in the same way.

pt2

For the same reasons of consideration and common courtesy, you should also avoid vaping when in queues and on public transport as these are confined spaces where your vapour could be offensive to those around you.

When travelling in a car with others, always ask beforehand if the driver or other passengers mind you vaping. If they say its fine, make sure you keep a window open so as not to fumigate your carpooling companions!

Although it can be tempting to ‘stealth vape’ in places where it isn’t permitted, we strongly advise that you resist the urge because, as incognito as you might think you’re being, someone around you is bound to notice.

Worse still, you might even set off a fire alarm and cause some serious public disorder!

When vaping in public it is always advisable to be aware of your surroundings to ensure that you’re not offending anyone with your vapour, especially around children and the elderly.

If you’re a Sub Ohm Vaper you need to be especially vigilant of who’s around you because no one – regardless of age – wants a huge plume of vapour in their face!

As a community, it’s up to us to uphold the reputation of vaping as an entirely different and separate practise from smoking – one that is significantly less offensive to the health and comfort of those around us. We don’t want passers-by having to wave their hands in front of their faces so they can see through our second-hand vapour, or indeed being disrupted in any way by our decision to vape - as so many people already are by smokers.

Because we want vaping to become more widely accepted and not vilified and prohibited in the same way as smoking, we need to exercise careful consideration at all times and cement a name for ourselves as a respectful bunch of non-offensive hobbyists who most certainly aren’t smokers, and shouldn’t be treated as such.

Smok TFV12 Baby Prince Tank Review

Fans of Smok’s popular TFV8 tank are set to be impressed by the new and improved TFV12 Baby Prince Tank. Offering even greater control over cloud production and flavour than its previous incarnation, the TFV12 Baby Prince Tank is a hit in the making.

Smok TFV12 Baby Prince Tank spec

Let’s get stuck into the all-important details. The TFV12 Baby Prince Tank has a 2ml capacity and features a top filling system.

The tank also comes with a fun and funky cobra drip tip for added detail and a comfortable feeling vape.

The best bit about the TFV12 Baby Prince Tank is the level of personalised vaping experience you can achieve, thanks to its adjustable airflow slits and three coil compatibility. The Smok TFV12 Baby Prince Tank comes with the regular Q4 0.4 sub-ohm quadruple coil pre-installed, plus two extra coils in the box: the T12 Red Light 0.15ohm coil which can be vaped between 50-90W and the Baby Mesh 0.15ohm coil between 40-80W. The only tricky element of this tank is changing the coil, as it can be a little tight when you first open up the tank.

This device is also compatible with SMOK’s bubble acrylic tank, which is harder wearing than the glass tank it comes with, if you want to upgrade.

Behind the brand

The Shenzhen-based electronic cigarette manufacturer SMOK was founded in 2010, and has grown to be one of the world’s leading producers of vaping devices. It’s estimated 80 million vapers across the world use SMOK products, and the company places an emphasis on innovation and has even recently launched its own vaping app.

Focus On: VooPoo Mojo

Following in the footsteps of the popular Drag mod, the VooPoo Mojo offers a compact, portable and easy to operate sub ohm vape.

Let’s look at some of the specifications, as well as weigh up the pros and cons of using this device.

VooPoo Mojo spec

The Mojo vape gives plenty of options to tailor your vape to your tastes. There’s a nice, simple LED screen where you can adjust the settings using the buttons on the device. Something to note is the unusual positioning of the buttons - the plus and minus buttons are on either side of the device, with the fire button in the middle.

The settings allow you to adjust wattage based on the resistance of the coil you’re using and switch between stainless steel and nickel. There’s also a factory reset option, if you want to start again from scratch.

The Mojo also features temperature control, plus there’s a 10-second cut-off feature on the fire button, and the option to lock the device when not in use.

The Mojo comes with an internal battery with a USB port for charging. This has been met with mixed reactions in the vaping community. If you’re out and about and your vape runs out of charge, you’re going to need to plug it in to charge it, rather than simply replace the battery. However the internal battery means you don’t have to keep buying new battery replacements, so it really depends what you prefer.

The VooPoo Mojo comes with a modestly sized but well-performing tank, which holds 3.5ml of your favourite e-liquid. The device is mostly made from metal, but also has some plastic features.

Behind the brand

The China-based VooPoo Tech company has amassed a loyal following of vaping fans, since its launch in 2014. In 2017, the company acquired US brand Woody Vapes and has been growing ever since. It’s range of colourful, simple to use vaping equipment has made the VooPoo line a popular choice for vapers everywhere.
