Smok Alien 220W by Smokly Review
Despite the numerous vaping devices on the market today, there is no question that the Smok Alien 220W Premium MOD Kit 220W TC is among the best. The device is a must-have especially for all stylish intermediate-to-advanced vapers out there.
The oblong cylindrical-shaped Smok Alien box mod comes in a relatively convenient size too, measuring only 85 x 44 x 28.4 mm. Its size and shape is similar to the Sigelei 213 and the P4U iPV 6/6X mods, although it has a lot of unique features that will help it to stand out from its competitors.
The mod can be used in either wattage or temperature control mode. You can vape from 1 watt to 220 watts. It is powered by dual 18650 batteries. It has a resistance range of 0.1Ω-3Ω (VW) / 0.06Ω-2Ω (TC) and a temperature range of 200-600° F / 100°-350° C.
Performance wise, the Smok Alien is up from the standards expected from current-generation and highly powered mods. Firing could be adjusted for soft, hard, and standard initial ramp-up. Temperature control is also precise. Although the menu navigation system looks cluttered and confusing at first, you will soon appreciate it once you are accustomed with all the data placement. The Smok Alien clearly elevated precision, thanks to its concise OLED screen (which is perhaps its most distinctive feature), which features voltage, resistance, amperage, mode, working temperature (PBC C), and a puff counter.
It also supports Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel heating elements. The industrial but sleek-looking mod also boasts of a good actual vaping performance. And its current chip technology and manufacturing standards are better compared to those released one or two years ago. Smok Alien also comes with upgradeable firmware that can be done through a micro USB port. This is really an advantage as it would allow users to gain some access to the latest vaping innovations and improvements.
Aside from its fantastic and appealing look, its stripping and vibrant screen are a sight. It could be customized with three different stripping colors to choose from, including red, gold, or black. It also has a sleek firing bar on the side. The Alien 220W’s firing bar needs firm pressure to activate, making it safer against accidental firing issues, which are common.
The screen of Smok’s latest device does not appear to be a screen but more of a part of the black exterior lined with a red or yellow polygon angled on the top and bottom sides and their lines overlapping the corners. Its screen is also positioned on the front area, giving bigger room for larger letters and numbers that will display power and resistance. It also has a smart battery life indicator that shows the state and life of each battery used.
The Smok Alien has a nice carbon fiber cover, which makes portable devices light and sturdy. The carbon fiber also allows you to get a good grip of the mod and prevent it from slipping your hands.
The Smok Alien can be used with most of the latest atomizers that you will find on the market. It can fit a huge variety of tanks and RDAs without any problems. Smok is selling a kit that is composed of the Alien 220W TC dual-18650 box and TFV8 Baby Beast subohm tank. The TFV8 Baby Beast tank is actually a smaller version of the Smok TFV8 subohm tank, which is dubbed as the best tank of 2016. The TFV8 baby offers the same features except for a smaller e-liquid capacity. There are currently five different TFV8 Baby Beast coils options in the market today, including the Octuple coil heads, the dual coils, quad coils, and a six coil atomizer.
Talking about the price, the Smok Alien mod could cost up to $70. A complete kit, which includes an Alien 220 Mod, TFV8 Baby Tank, V8 Baby-Q2 Core (0.4Ω dual coils) (Pre-installed), V8 Baby-T8 Core (0.15Ω octuple coils, a USB Cable for Charging/Upgrading, Replacement Glass Tube, a user manual, and spare parts, is also up for grab for an additional $15 to $25 to the price. But you can get it at www.smokly.com for only $59.95. Batteries, on the other hand, are sold separately.
