SMOK G150 Kit

At Last, at least for those of us who would much prefer the hassle-free experience of not having to change our batteries on a regular basis, comes an enclosed 4200mAh capacity device from SMOK in a style reminiscent of the extremely popular vapor flask.

Two versions of this kit are available, Standard and EU to cater for those of us who are bound by the painful legislation imposed on us by the TPD!

Performance matched with reliability and style are always the focal points of any new product manufactured by SMOK and the G150 appears to be  no exception!

With a power range set anywhere between 6W &150W plus, the inclusion of a temperature control suite offering the user even greater choice on how they choose to vape, and backed up by a host of safety features, this looks set to become yet another sensible choice for the vaper.

So, once again, lets jump in and look at the specs, performance and overall finish up close and personal!

Tools Of The Trade & Safety Information

People can suffer from allergies to chemicals that may be present in the makeup of certain types of E-liquids or produced in their vapour. People can become sensitive to, or even allergic to Nickel or Titanium used in Temperature Controlled designed coils. Seek professional medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews.

In this review, I have used a selection of E-Liquids from the extensive Mighty Vapors collection. UK retailers can purchase these exquisite E-liquids and other current Premium US lines from Virtual Vapours Here

Bang For Your Buck

The Device

The G150

A masterclass from SMOK that includes all the best parts from recently released versions in one, and feels like it’s been built to last.

The user interface is well placed, and I love the positioning or the fire switch. Human interaction is a very important part in any design concept, not just the technology to be found inside it, but how comfortable it is to hold and to operate.

The user has the option to vape in either Variable Wattage Mode, from 6W up to a maximum of 150W, or Temperature Controlled Mode (between a Temperature range of: 200 – 600°F |100 – 315°C) by selecting either option from the menu.

The OLED interface is once again large, bright, and very well laid out thanks to the latest chip technology currently being used by SMOK in their box mod designs.

This allows for easy access to all the menu and submenu structures, including Variable Wattage Mode and Temperature Control Mode in either Celsius or Fahrenheit, with the ability to pre-select the type of wire you chose to use whether it be Ni 200, Ti or SS.

Press the power switch five times in quick succession to turn the device on and a further three clicks once the device has been activated to gain access to the top menu structure (Mode, Puff, Setting and Power).

One press of the power button cycles through the options available to you, and by holding the power switch in for a little over one second gives you access to that menu and any of its underlying sub-menus.

You can make all the necessary adjustments to fine tune each of the individual settings by using the combined plus and minus switch positioned just below it.

By selecting Power from the top tier menu, you will be able to turn the device off.

For a more in-depth view of the G150 Kit and its features, please consult the included user manual and make sure you are using the recommended batteries only. A thorough understanding of battery safety is imperative when using this type of device.

The TFV8 Big Baby Tank

The TFV8 Big Baby Beast tank, with greatly improved coils compared with earlier versions in this Sub-Ohm series of tanks, helps to improve both the vapour production while at the same time enhancing the overall flavour.

SMOK have also included the option of a 2ml capacity version as well as the 5ml to meet with the current TPD regulations for Europe.

Thanks to its revolutionary rotary top cap design SMOK has once again made filling the tank a very simple and straightforward procedure. However, please remember to use the elongated opening adjacent to the circular hole in the centre to fill it.

The bottom airflow system which consists of two wide airflow slots is more than adequate and keeps the circulation of air flowing comfortably around the coil heads at the G150’s maximum output of 150W.

Please remember that the TFV8 Big Baby Beast Tank is designed mainly for huge cloud production so the airflow, even though it is fully adjustable, is not restricted enough to create a tight draw associated with smoking a traditional cigarette.

Clearly, you will need to prime the installed 0.4Ω Japanese Organic Cotton Coil prior to use which can be accessed by unscrewing the base of the tank.

Once this process is complete attach it to the main device (battery) via the 510 connector on the top and power up the G150. The intelligent firmware will automatically detect that a new coil has been attached, and will ask you to confirm this by selecting Yes on the OLED display.

Roundup

The Good

On a personal note, it was pleasing to see after a string of replaceable battery devices that finally we have a high-end mod that has a built-in battery with ample capacity to sustain longer periods of vaping at high temperatures.

Comfortable to hold, with a hassle free battery experience, especially for new vapers with limited experience of battery safety, the G150 should be on the top of your list if you are considering something new at an affordable price given its build quality, functionality and safety features.

From the 510 connector right the way down to the ample venting of the battery compartment at its base, the G150 is going to be one of my hot picks from SKOK so far this year.

The layout of the OLED screen as we have come to know helps to make navigating the menus a joy, especially for the newcomers to SMOK.

Whether you have a personal preference for temperature controlled vaping or, variable wattage this device has both with a dedicated set of built in safety features to keep you as safe as possible.

Cloud production and flavour are simply awesome with this kit thanks to the inclusion of the TFV8 Big Baby Beast Tank.

Their well-designed coil heads help in reducing the risk of a dry hit at the highest temperatures recommended for each type of coil thanks to their wide liquid inlets, the right amount of cotton, and of course the two wide airflow slots positioned at the base of the tank.

For firmware upgrades and charging you can connect the G150 using the supplied micro USB cable directly to your internet source. You will find the connection port situated at the bottom of the OLED screen.

I mentioned in the earlier review of the GX2/4 that it would be better positioned on the horizontal plane rather than on the vertical and SMOK have got it right on this model.

The Bad

I noticed a build-up of heat in the power button with prolonged periods of vaping at high temperatures. I was pushing it a little bit hard but none the less it’s worth mentioning. A top airflow system would be most welcome to help minimise the possibility of leaking.

And The Downright Ugly

I have not come across anything so far to report on the G150 Kit in this section.
