SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC full review

SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC

We’ve fiddled with e couple of touch screen mods until now, but none of them as good as the SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC. When you imagine a touch screen mod you’re probably thinking it’s complicated to use. Don’t worry, we did too and this is why the kit came as a complete surprise. Turned out to be one of the best devices we tested and one that we definitely recommend.

SMOK thought of everything when designing this mod and they did an amazing job. From the positioning of the buttons, to the flawless 2.4″ OLED screen and TFV8 Big Baby tank included in the kit it’s a vaper’s dream come true.

The SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC comes packed in a standard cardboard gift box and it’s available in a wide variety of colors. Inside the box you will find the mod itself, the TFV4 Big Baby tank with a V8-X4 pre-installed, a spare V8-T, a spare glass tube, micro-USB cable, extra O-rings and gaskets and the user manual.

DESIGN AND MAIN FEATURES

The mod measures 85 x 59 x 28mm and it’s very well built. On top it has a spring loaded stainless steel 510 connector and on the main side we can see the small lock button and the fire bar. The OLED touch screen display is on the face of the device and on the back we have the magnetic battery door with carbon fiber finish. On the base there are venting holes for the batteries as well as the micro-USB slot. This is used for firmware upgrades as well as charging.

The SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC modThe 2.4″ OLED display is obviously the star of the show and it features capacitive touch screen technology. It’s the closes you will get to using a smart phone and it’s very responsive and accurate. You can go through the menu with a simple click and adjust every parameter when vaping in variable wattage or temperature control modes. The display takes little time to get used to and it does an excellent job replacing standard controls. You can always lock it by pressing the small button on the side of the mod. They say the screen is shutter resistant but we didn’t have the heart to drop it and see if it’s true.

The SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC goes from 1W all the way up to 220W and features temperature control for Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel and TCR. It also has five standard pre-heating settings like Min, Max, Soft, Normal, and Hard. Minimum resistance is 0.1 Ohms in power mode and 0.06 Ohms in temperature control mode.

TFV4 Big Baby tankTHE TFV4 BIG BABY TANK ROCKS

The TFV4 Big Baby tank is the same as on the SMOK Alien Baby kit and it’s one of the best tanks we used. It has a diameter of 24.5mm and a maximum capacity of 5.0ml of e-liquid. Comes with top fill and dual adjustable airflow at the base. It’s the perfect tank for flavor and big clouds and there are various coils you can use with this bad boy.

PERFORMANCE AND CONCLUSIONS

When it comes to performance, the SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC was a real surprise. We expected a complicated touch screen and faulty operation but this was just flawless. The touch screen experience is very similar to using a mobile phone and everything is intuitive and fun to use. The TFV4 Big Baby tank is a perfect match for the mod and flavor as well as vapor production are just off the charts. Big thumbs up for SMOK!
