Smok Stick V8 Kit Review
The Stick V8 kit is the most recent pen-style sub ohm device released by Smok, a company known for its numerous quality vaping products. With such expectation from Smok, let’s see if the Smok V8 live up to your expectations.
As usual, the kit came in a black box with the lava or volcanic Smok image sleeve. The back portion of the box contains relevant info including a short product description and a brief company profile. Inside the box are a Stick V8 mod, a TFV8 Big Baby tank, 2 pieces of V8 Baby M2 0.3 ohm coil, spare parts, the very informative user manual, and a USB cord. (Snatch an awesome deal of this kit for as low as NZD $59.99 only at https://nzecigstore.co.nz.)
Talking about its design and build quality, you won’t be disappointed as it is basically everything you would expect from Smok. Connections are smooth, and the airflow ring found at the bottom part has a good resistance when turned. Don’t worry, it won’t budge even a millimeter in your pocket.
The Smok Stick V8 bears resemblance to Smok’s Brit One and Vape Pen 22. It is still chunky and chubby but still enough to fit in your pocket or bag. It measures 24.5 mm by 75 mm with a maximum voltage of 4.2 volts. Located on the side is the charging port with a little LED ‘dot’. This will indicate when the battery has been fully charged. By the way, the mod has a pass-through feature, which means you can vape and smoke at the same time.
The Smok V8 is made with simplicity and quality in mind. And I meant that literally. You really don’t have to worry about anything, not even a screen to check out or settings to adjust. All you have to do is charge the device, and you are off to go vaping. It’s that easy!
Functionality-wise, its fire button works smoothly. Each time you puff, the fire button flashes four times. And if it flashes 15 times, then it means that your voltage is already below 3.3 volts, or in other words, charging time! Of note, the Stick V8 is an unregulated mod, so the voltage and power (wattage) are directly proportional.
The Smok Stick V8’s battery capacity is good news to many. Apparently, this small mod just packs a massive 3,000 mAh power. You sure did read that right! Well, this can last you most of the day and power probably anything you put on it.
Let’s not forget about the tank. This mod comes with a simple swivel top-fill TFV8 Big Baby tank. With this, you can expect pretty good and massive clouds that just keep coming in. And for the flavor profile? Absolutely delicious! Also, I think the reason why it is called ‘Big Baby’ because of its monstrous capacity to store up to 5 mL of your favorite e-juice (but that’s just my two cents though). If its battery is a monster, then its tank is a total juice guzzler!
By the way, since we are talking about e-juice. I suggest you pair the Smok Stick V8 with the unique flavors of Cosmic Fog Vapors. Each flavor promises to create new and exciting experience to its users. What’s more, the company claimed that it spends an average of 7 to 10 months to craft each flavor – now that’s real hard work. There are currently six flavors to choose from including Chewberry, The Shocker, Chill’d Tobacco, Kryp, Sonrise, and Sonset. I know your taste buds are starting to drool now, so I suggest you grab your own bottle now at NZ Ecig Store. Get it for only NZD $24.99 (30 mL). They come at different nicotine concentration levels as well.
Meanwhile, if you are keen enough to notice, the two ‘stock coils’ included in the kit do not display their respective wattage numbers. And there’s no way you can find those magic numbers on Google or even at Smok’s website itself. Smok, however, said that the Baby M2 coils are specifically created to accommodate the V8 stick battery, which produces a consistent 20 amps discharge. The coils have the words ‘Direct Output’ though and also their respective ohm readings, which are 0.15 ohm and 0.25 ohm.
Now to get you straight to the point, the Smok Stick V8 it is the best sub-ohm pen-style device there is. Battery is incredible and mod is good. Plain and simple.
