Since 2010, SMOK has pushed the boundaries of vaping innovation with the release of countless hardware choices with fantastic features. From disposable e-cigarettes to popular vape mods like the SMOK Alien 220W with the ‘Baby Beast’ coils, we’ve seen a range of SMOK vape kits for beginners to advanced technical mods that provide adjustable settings like temperature control, variable voltage, and power curve.
Reaching millions of customers worldwide, SMOK did not grow as a brand by sitting back and allowing the likes of VOOPOO, Uwell, and Innokin to take the top spot. Instead, SMOK has exceeded expectations by announcing pod vape kits like the Nord range, including the latest Nord 4, pod-mod kits such as the Morph Pod-40, and stylish cloud machines like the SMOK Rigel. Not just limited to power devices with a removable 18650 or internal battery reaching up to 2000mAh, SMOK also produces a wonderful collection of coils for mouth to lung and direct to lung vaping. In addition, you can find lots of different tanks to hold your e-liquid and coils. For 2021, SMOK continues to lead the way with a whole host of vape kits to delight vaping fans across the UK. Check out some of our top picks below.
1. SMOK Morph-40 Pod Kit
For style, practicality, and convenience, this transitional pod/mod device from SMOK features at number one on our list to date for 2021. It features a large 2000mAh battery so you have more than enough charge to last all day, whether you’re an MTL enthusiast seeking a throat hit like you would smoking or a DTL vaper with a preference for large clouds of vapour. It’s comfortable to fire with the sidebar that feels nice in the hand with a leather grip. All the settings you can adjust on the SMOK Morph-40 Pod Kit appear on an easy-to-read screen with a 0.91-inch display.
- Adjustable airflow between MTL and DTL
- Type-C charger
- Ergonomic mouthpiece
- Enhanced chipset
- Six safety functions including eight-second cut-off and short circuit protection
- Top-fill system
Best coil: The SMOK Morph-40 Pod Kit comes with the RPM 0.4 mesh coil which is recommended at 25W for optimum flavour direct to lung while the RPM 0.6 triple mesh coil should be vaped at roughly 25W too, creating excellent vapour and flavour at a fast ramp up time. You can also try the 1.2 Ohm Quartz coil with a recommended wattage of 12W and the single RPM SC coil of 1.0 Ohm for fantastic flavour, best vaped at 14W.
2. SMOK N18 Pod Kit
Available in a sophisticated matte-blue or silver, the sleek and user-friendly SMOK N18 vape pen kit is ideal for any vaper. It kicks out 30 watts of power so it’s tailored more towards mouth to lung vaping but can be used equally as a restrictive direct to lung vape due to the adjustable airflow. What you do is twist the bottom of the device to change between five fixed vaping power inputs – 9W, 15W, 20W, 25W or 30W, till you find the perfect harmony. What we like about this device from SMOK is the simplicity of the device. It doesn’t look too flashy or packed with gimmicks like some vape devices. Instead, the adjustable wattage and adjustable airflow ring at the top are easy to change whenever you feel like altering the flavour and cloud production.
- 1300mAh battery capacity
- Type-C charger
- Compatible with the previous from the SMOK Nord series
- Five safety functions
- LED indicator to note charge level
- Top-fill design
- Removable 510 drip tip
Best coil: The SMOK N18 Pod Kit offers vapers of all levels different coil options from the popular Nord coils collection. When you purchase the kit, expect great flavour for Sub-Ohm vaping with the 0.6 Ohm mesh coil, best vaped at 25W which is the second from the last setting when you twist the adjustable wattage feature at the bottom of the vape pen. Alternatively, you can vape a 1.4 Ohm resistance with the other coil provided in the SMOK N18 Kit, ideal for MTL vapers at roughly 12W, so either 9W or 15W on the adjustable scale for this vape pen.
3. SMOK Rigel Vape Mod Kit
Performance merges with an aesthetically pleasing mod as SMOK brings a dual 18650 battery vape mod to the market with the impressive SMOK Rigel. It boasts up to 230W of power to chuck out huge clouds of vapour if that’s your cup of tea, ensuring maximum flavour from each inhalation. Made with a mixture of carbon fibre and rubber support, it looks as good as it feels in the hand and all of the adjustable settings and features are available to tweak on a clear 0.96 inch OLED screen.
If that wasn’t enough, it offers a range of safety functions such as an eight-second cut-off, a rapid 0.001-second fire up speed, in addition to a smart coil recognition system. You can change the colour on the screen to six different varieties to suit the colour you pick for your Rigel kit. Complemented by the TFV9 tank, which provides a top-fill system for the easy topping up of your e-liquids and adjustable airflow, vaping couldn’t be easier or packed with more flavour. This is only enhanced by the ability to support the 0.15 Ohm mesh coils, which has a larger surface area for even better taste whichever e-liquid you pick. Overall, the SMOK Rigel does not disappoint in the slightest and is tailor-made for advanced vapers looking for a fully functional vape mod kit where you can tweak a variety of settings to suit your ideal vape experience.
- 230W max output
- Top-fill system with the TFV9 tank
- Adjustable airflow
- 0.96 inch OLED display
- Dual 18650 batteries (sold separately)
Best coil: Considering the power and adjustable features available with the SMOK Rigel, it’s no wonder this vape mod is geared more towards DTL vaping. With that in mind, the kit comes with low resistance V9 meshed kanthal coils at 0.15 Ohms, best vaped between 40W-90W. Made with stainless steel, they produce excellent flavour with 100% organic cotton inside to saturate your e-liquids.
4. SMOK MBAR Disposable Vape Kit
An industry as innovative as the vaping sector was bound to come up with a super easy option for vapers eventually and brands like SMOK duly delivered with disposables vapes like the MBAR. This simple AIO kit offers up to 300 puffs of pure nicotine salt content at 20mg which can be vaped until it’s empty. Instead of messing about with coils and e-liquid bottles, just throw it away and pick up another flavour. This is a game-changer for the industry because it makes a great starter kit for new vapers looking to give up smoking and not wanting the fuss initially of tweaking the performance or needing to swot up on the latest in vaping knowledge. Because the wattage is fixed with the MBAR disposables and it stores 1.3ml of e-liquid, it should last a vaper the majority of the day if they don’t chain vape excessively. Considering they contain 20mg nic salts, this should not be the case anyway because of the highest possible nicotine strength. The idea is to give a satisfactory throat hit like you would get from smoking without inhaling combustible tobacco or carbon monoxide.
- No set up required, open the package and vape away
- 6-8W of power, giving small and discreet vapour on the exhale
- No buttons on the SMOK MBAR, just auto-inhale at the mouthpiece
- Five flavours, including menthol and blue raspberry
- Only 14.8g in weight
- Leak-free technology
