Tech-savvy vape users will surely want to get their hands on the Smok G-Priv 220W because of its technically advanced specs and features.
The 220-W Smok G-Priv is a dual-battery mod wired in series. It is made of zinc alloy and features a plastic firing bar that is the same with the earlier released H-Priv mod. Its magnetized battery door is made from carbon fiber inlay.
The 202-gram mod is 85mm tall, 58.5mm wide, and 28mm deep; if you are familiar with the Wismec rx2000, they have about the same height. Its 28mm does not include the two side panels, although the 25mm diameter atomizers are a great fit.
Its most interesting feature is the advanced (and intuitive) touch screen display. The 2.4-inch OLED screen, made from shatter-resistant, shock-proof glass, actually looks nice and is very informative. It has a screen lock button too to prevent you from accidentally pressing buttons and changing settings while you place your mod inside your pocket or shoving the device on the bench seat of your car.
The mod is relatively easy to use. You could simply press the silver rectangle-shaped button located above the firing bar to lock your screen. Aside from avoiding accidents, it could also save your battery life. Pressing the same button again will activate the screen and you could then change the setting or check your battery status.
The fire button also has several functions too. Clicking the firing bar five times within two seconds will turn the G-Priv on. After the device is powered on, you will then be asked to choose between New Coil and Same Coil. From there, the home screen will display four icons: TC Mode, VW Mode, Max Puff, and Settings.
Wattage setting ranges from 1 watt to 220 watts when in VW mode. A bar for fast adjustments is also available, while + and – signs could also be used for fine tuning. You could also click the Effects to adjust how slow or quick your atomizer should heat up. Available options are Min, Max, Soft, Norm, and Hard.
Once you are all set up, just click ‘Activate’ and you are ready to vape. A new screen will also be displayed. This is where you could change wattage and count puff, or check mods resistance and remaining battery life.
The top part of the Smok G-Priv contains a quality 510 connection with a brass, spring-loaded pin; on the other hand, the bottom part has some battery vent holes and a mini-USB port used for charging and updating. It turns out then that this dual 18650-powered mod is equipped with balanced charging technology that allows users to charge the batteries on board safely. This is definitely a huge advantage especially for those who do now have external chargers.
The G-Priv has a minimum atomizer resistance of 0.06 ohms. Its temperature control could be adjusted from 200oF to 600 oF. Surprisingly, all the bells and whistles are already included. It also offers modes for Ni200, Titanium, and Stainless Steel and Temperature Coefficient of Resistance adjustments.
SMOK, the brain behind the G-Priv, has since proven itself a leader in the vaping industry for a long time. The company is the first to introduce advanced technologies including Bluetooth connectivity and wireless firmware updates. And now, it is taking its innovative mind further with the Smok G-Priv Premium MOD Kit 220W TC. Although the Smok G-Priv is not the world’s first touchscreen mod (see the Siegelei T200 or Laisimo L3), it is definitely the most powerful in the market today.
Smok G-Priv sells for up to $85 on other websites, but do not fret as you could get it at www.smokly.com for as low as $79.95. Available colors are black, blue, orange, silver, green, black and red, purple, blue and red, gold, white, and red.
A starter kit is also up for grabs. Included in the box are a Mod with 2.4-inch TFT super touch screen, a TFV8 Big Baby Tank (5mL) with 1 V8 Baby-X4 Core pre-installed, a V8 Baby-T6 core, a USB cable, a replacement glass tube, and an English user manual.
For those cloud lovers seeking for a nicely combined mod and tank (particularly those who enjoys using factory coil heads), then this mod is your perfect mate!
