SMOK GX 350

SMOK GX 350

Fresh on the streets this week sees the introduction of a new high powered kit from SMOK. The GX350 Kit is larger than life, packing plenty of punch and you just might be surprised to find that it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, thanks to a tri-dimensional polygon design.

It’s no lightweight clearly, given the immense battery capacity that it holds or indeed when you consider the functionality on offer to the experience vaper. But one thing is for sure, it’s going to impress a lot of you guys when it comes to raw performance and looks.

Tools Of The Trade & Safety Information

You might find this range of calculators provided by Steam Engine particularly useful along with a host of accessories manufactured by Coli Master. Please Make sure you are using the manufacturer’s recommended batteries for this high-performance device.

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 Rich’s impressive range of assorted flavours. 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 SMOK GX350 TC is one of the most ergonomically designed box mods on the market today. It is feature rich, flexible in its choice of operation, high in battery capacity, and most definitely a street worthy looking device.

This is a rock-solid piece of kit that’s built to last and impress, which I can assure you it does with looks to die for. The user interface is a dream to operate, offering the user an up top clear bright OLED screen for easy viewing, a stealth fire button that switches quickly between the menu options, and the choice of vaping with either two or four batteries installed depending on what your maximum output choice is.

With two high amperage 18650 batteries installed it has a maximum output of up to 220W and with all four-high amperage 18650 batteries installed it has a maximum output of up to 350W. So, the GX 350 as the name suggests is no slouch when it comes to raw power. In short, it’s a very capable mod with a lot of style and eye catching lines from the top down!

Firmware upgrades can be download directly via the Micro-USB port located on the top side of the main housing underneath the rubber plug.

The Tank

Yes, the word beast sums it up very nicely! With increased heat being generated at very high outputs with this tank, up to and including 260W the TFV8 uses a Delrin ultra-wide bore drip tip to be able to cope with the amount of heat that is generated and the immense vapour production that the TFV8 offers the user.

SMOK have introduced four coil options which are available to use with this kit. The V8-T8 Octuple coil head (0.15Ω), a V8-T6 Turbo 6.0T Sextuple (0.2Ω) the V8-Q4 Quadruple Coil Head (0.15Ω) and finally a V8 Exclusive Turno RBA Head with pre-installed dual fused Clapton coils (0.28Ω).

For newcomers or inexperienced vapers to building your own coils, you can find some excellent tutorials on YouTube so I would suggest looking at these initially to gain as much knowledge as possible before attempting a build by yourself.

Alternatively, you can seek further advice from your local vape store first, or from more experienced vapers who can be found in the chat rooms. There’s plenty of help out there if you look for it, and never be afraid to ask for help.

SMOK have already included dual fused Clapton coils for the TFV8 RBA base so all you need to do is wick and prime them, fill the tank with your chosen juice, and you’re ready to go. With 18mm of deck space you have plenty of room to work with on future builds.

Before firing the TFV8 with added organic cotton make sure you have filled the tank and primed the coils thoroughly with your chosen E-Liquid and set the adjustable dual bottom airflow to suit the temperature or wattage you have selected.

Roundup

The Good

It’s going to fly.

With a vastly improved chipset, well positioned OLED screen, and a new up & down control switch both the performance and personal interaction is very slick indeed. The combination of these three key points contributes to a smart user interface that’s quick and simple to navigate around.

The 510 allows for 24.5m tanks to be fitted without any overhang. It is a very flexible device with a Plethora of vaping options for the experienced user, and with the inclusion of the Beast in this kit it hits like a steam train!

Currently, the smallest quad 18650 on the market at the time of writing this review that has a bad boy attitude cloaked in a stealthy design. Highly recommended for the cloud community and experienced vaper who requires performance as well as power.

Remember, you have the option to hit 350W if you require it with this device, so make sure you have four high drain and fully charged batteries installed if you go over 220W as SMOK recommend.

The Bad

The tightness of the battery door.

SMOK have included a short video on their website to demonstrate the best procedure for opening and closing it so once you have quickly mastered these techniques life will be a whole lot easier. A top airflow system would be most welcome to help minimise the possibility of leaking.

And The Downright Ugly

Nothing to report here. It’s a beautiful thing!
