So, if you happen to be in the market for a stealthy looking device, then things have just gotten a whole lot smaller, including the tank!
Never short on answers to what the market demands (no pun intended!) SMOK have introduced a powerful new device that every magician would love to feature in their disappearing act, and believe me, they are already disappearing off the shelves very quickly indeed.
The QBOX KIT is a joy to behold, that is if you remember it’s there, producing 50 watts of power and thanks to the inclusion of the TFV8 Baby tank guaranteeing you a flavoursome vape as well.

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.
For an in depth look at battery types, performance, and safety information, follow this link to the Mooch Facebook page.
You can also find the Mooch Blog over at ECF.
You may also find this range of calculators provided by Steam Engine particularly useful, so thank you to Lars for allowing me to include them in my reviews.
These calculators are currently under development, and the information that they contain may change at any time without notice. Please read the How It Works section for a more in-depth understanding.
In this review, I have used a selection of E-Liquids from Mighty Vapors impressive range of flavours. UK retailers can purchase these exquisite E-liquids and other current Premium US lines from Virtual Vapours Here
Bang For Your Buck
Small and compact is the name of the game here whilst offering the user a selection of vaping options at the same time.
The Q Box comes with many of the features found in larger SMOK devices, including all the safety features that we have come to expect from a Company offering quality products at affordable prices, and always with their consumers wellbeing in mind.
The user can choose to vape in Variable Wattage Mode (up to a maximum of 50W) or Temperature Controlled Mode (between a Temperature range of: 200 – 600°F |100 – 315°C) depending on your preferred method of vaping.
The user interface itself is well laid out giving you easy access to all the menu and sub-menu structures including, as I have just mentioned, Variable Wattage Mode and Temperature Control Mode in either Celsius or Fahrenheit, with the ability to pre-select the type of wire 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). From here you can make all the necessary adjustments to fine tune each of the individual settings.
One press of the power button cycles through the available options to you and by holding the power switch in for a little over one second gives you access to that particular menu and any of its underlying sub-menus.
You can then use the Plus + or Minus – switches positioned just below the power switch itself to make any required adjustments to each one of the parameters.
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 QBOX and its features, please consult the included user manual.
As the name suggests, the Baby Beast with greatly improved coils compared with earlier versions in this Sub-Ohm series of tanks, helps to improve both the vapour output while at the same time enhancing the overall flavour.
SMOK have also included the option of a 2ml capacity version as well as the 3ml to meet with the current TPD regulations.
Thanks to its rotary top cap design filling the tank is a very straight forward procedure however, please remember to use the elongated opening adjacent to the circular hole in the centre to fill it.
The bottom airflow system is more than adequate and keeps the circulation of air flowing around the coil heads at the Q Box’s maximum output of 50W. Please remember that the Baby Beast is designed mainly for cloud production so the airflow, even though it is fully adjustable, is not restricted enough to create a tight draw.
Clearly, you will need to prime the installed 0.25Ω 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 QBOX. 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.
A small, light and feature rich kit that is certainly not lacking in style or performance!
The SMOK QBOX kit has a lot to offer the vaper looking for something that’s small and portable to carry on their person without taking up too much space in the process.
It’s feature rich considering that the battery is not much bigger than the tank it comes with which should help to put things into perspective for you offering both VV and TC which is a feat in itself.
Both cloud production and flavour are on point thanks to the inclusion of the Baby Beast Tank and I loved the user interface’s simplistic method of operation. OLED real estate is ample allowing you to easily monitor and change the settings to your own personal preferences at a glance and the touch of a switch.
I’m going to mention the battery life and coils here as clearly a 1600mAh battery with an attached Sub-Ohm tank that includes a 0.25Ω coil head isn’t going to last very long.
So, two options are clearly available. One, increase the batteries capacity, or two, increase the coils resistance to 0.5 ohms at the very least.
And The Downright Ugly
Nothing to see here.
Remember, The QBOX uses the very latest in stealth technology so be sure to remember where you put it!
