Smok V8 Kit Reveiw

Smok V8 Kit Reveiw

The V8 kit is the newest pen-style sub ohm device from one of the most prolific vape manufacturing companies out there, Smok. In case you’re wondering will the V8 kit live up to my expectations, or will it just end up in my ‘Shoulda done your homework’ box? – Let’s find out …

What’s in that box

The kit will come in the familiar black Smok box covered with the lava/volcanic image sleeve that has become iconic, with all the useful info on the back, and will include the following:

  • Stick V8 Battery (3000mAh)
  • TFV8 Big Baby Tank 24.5mm
  • V8 Baby M2 Core 0.15ohm
  • V8 Baby M2 core 0.25ohm
  • USB Cable
  • Users-Manual
  • Vape Band
  • Spare parts

A word about the coils

The two included ‘stock coils’ don’t have any wattage numbers engraved on them; which I thought was a little weird. The Smok company however says the Baby M2 coils have been designed specifically for the V8 stick battery being that it puts out a consistent 20amps discharge. The words Direct Output are on these coils. However they do have Ohm readings on them. The ones in my kit read 0.15ohm and 0.25ohm respectively. Even after repeated searching of Smok’s website and the net, I could’nt  find what wattage the V8 Stick can actually pump out. I found that the general consensus from reviewers is around 50 watts. The Smok V8 is an unregulated mod. This simply means that as the voltage will drop so will the power [wattage].

A few key features worth mentioning

This battery is without a doubt an absolute monster, checking in at 3000mAh. This will for sure last you most of the day and power up just about anything you choose to put on it. There isn’t any screen or settings to worry about.  All you do is just charge, and vape away.

This device has a swivel top-fill TFV8 Big Baby tank which is simply fantastic. You will get amazing clouds that just keep coming while the flavor profile is in a word superb. It’s setup with a 5ml tank and is known to be a juice guzzler.

Probably, the best feature of the V8 has to be its ease of use. From filling it up to swapping out its coil and of course, just being able to hit that firing button and vape, makes this one simple to use device indeed. You can pick one up at https://caktusvape.com/.

Design and Build Quality

When it comes to the build, the V8 is everything you’ve come to expect from Smok. The connections are buttery smooth and precise. It has a huge bottom airflow ring that has some pretty good resistance when you turn it. Thus guaranteeing that it won’t budge even a millimeter in your pocket. As far as design goes, it’s very similar to Smok’s Vape Pen 22 and their Brit One. It’s chunky and chubby in good ways  and is for sure the perfect pocket or bag mod. I went ahead and got me the black version and it really does look like a top end mod. You can also get it in stainless steel and a really cool rainbow color.

Its charge port is located high up on the side and it has a little LED light that will tell you when the device is fully charged. The V8 supports pass-through vaping. This means simply that it allows you to vape while it is charging.

  • 8 second shut off
  • Low resistance protection
  • Short circuit protection
  • Low voltage protection

How Does Smok Stick V8 Perform?

You will get epic clouds that seem to last forever and the flavor it gives you is just sensational. The V8 Baby M2 Core .0.25 ohm dual coil gave me an absolutely superb performance. When I vaped on the 0.15ohm things got more intense.

This V8 is an absolute monster. Safe to say it’s one cloud chucking demon and then some. As far as taste goes, if I’m to be totally honest, there was the smallest, and I do mean small dip in the flavor that I was expecting. It was just a tiny bit, but still, something worth mentioning.

This is being marketed by Smok as a ‘starter kit’. I myself would in no way recommend this to a new vaper who’s just beginning . If anything it’s a starter kit for those who are looking to get themselves into sub-ohm vaping. When all is said and done, experienced sub ohm vapers are definitely going to find it a pleasure to use. It’s just perfect for out and about vaping.

If you’ve picked up the new Smok V8, e-liquids from Halo would without a doubt be the perfect pairing for this device. There are several flavors that you can choose from which include Twisted Turnover, Tribeca, Kringle’s Curse, and Mystic Menthol. These premium  American- made e-liquids will surely stand-out and not disappoint. Halo e-juices are available at Cactus Vape for just AUD $24.95 (30 ml).
