Smok Alien 85 Premium Mod Kit 85W TC Review
The Smok Alien 85 Premium Mod Kit 85W TC is a miniature version of the otherworldly Alien 220W vape kit. This device lives up to the lofty expectations created by its predecessor. It is, however, smaller and has a lower maximum wattage output. The Alien 85 vape kit has virtually the same functionality as the Alien 220W vape kit. Essentially, Smok made a device that is lightweight and portable with the same features as the Alien 220 Vape kit.
The Alien 85 has the kind of quality that you expect from a device manufactured by Smok. It performs pretty well too. The Smok Alien 85 Kit consists of the Alien Baby 85W TX Box Mod and the TFV8 Baby Beast Tank.
This vape kit looks just like the Alien 200W kit. The mod is made of zinc alloy and has dimensions of 71mm by 48mm by 27mm. It is powered by a single 18650 battery. It can fire up to 85 watts. You have to purchase the battery separately because it is not included in the tank.
Another difference between the Alien 85 and the Alien 220W is the placement of their batteries. The Alien 220W mod had a bottom battery compartment while the battery compartment of the Alien 85 is on top of the device. The battery compartment can be accessed by unscrewing a threaded cap that sits on top of the device next to its spring-loaded 510 connection like the Eleaf Pico. The package includes a micro USB cable for charging the device and for firmware upgrades.
The Alien Baby 85W TC mod comes with the typical large side firing button that you will find on most mods from Smok. There is a large OLED screen on the side of the mod. Although it is smaller than the Alien 220W mod, they both have the same screen size.
The Smok Alien Baby 85W TC mod can be used in normal wattage mode, temperature control mode, as well as TCR mode. It has a temperature range of 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The mod is compatible with nickel, titanium, and stainless steel coils in temperature control mode. It comes with other features including memory modes, a stealth mode, a preheat function and a puff counter. The device can work with atomizers within a resistance range of 0.06 ohms to 3 ohms. In normal wattage mode, the resistance range of the device is 0.1 ohm to 3 ohms.
The TFV8 Baby Beast tank that comes with the Alien 85W vape kit is made of stainless steel and Pyrex glass. The dimensions of the tank are 53mm by 22mm, and it weighs 47. You can probably fit a 24mm atomizer on top of the Alien 85 mod, but this one sits on it perfectly. The tank has a capacity to hold 3mll of e-liquid. It comes with the typical top fill design that you will find on Smok tanks. To fill the tank, you simply need to swivel the top cap to the side to access the filling holes.
The tank has an adjustable bottom airflow design. It comes pre-installed with a 0.4 ohm V8 Baby-Q2 Core coil head which has a recommended wattage range of 55 watts to 65 watts. You will also find the 0.6 ohm V8 Baby-Q2 Core coil head which has a recommended wattage range of 30 watts to 40 watts. Replacing the coil heads is not at all difficult.
You can get the Smok Alien 85 Premium Mod Kit in just about any vape stores. It is available on Smokly for only $49.95. It doesn’t get better than this. This kit comes in different attractive colors including red, white, camouflage, pink, red, silver, black, blue, green, gold, black/red flakes, and black/white flakes.
