Beauty is only Skin Deep, a Smok Species Review + Haiku https://ift.tt/2zNMsAj

Here we go again / a review with a haiku / 'cause haikus are fun

Today I have a newer kit by the most polarizing company in the vaping world. Love them or hate them, Smok makes attractive looking mods. Does it hold up? Well, I’m not a professional but I’ve been at this for a while and am only partially full of shit, so here’s my take on this kit.

Formatting isn’t my strong suit yet. Hell, I’m surprised I was allowed to review this, to be honest. Took me a while to get back into the swing of things, but here we go with my impressions.

First off, as I said before, Smok makes nice looking kits. They are attractive. Functionality, well, I have no complaints as a power mode mod for the device itself. It worked, seemed fairly accurate, and didn’t go kaboom. I didn’t exactly baby it, but I also didn’t try to dribble it like a basketball or see if it would survive a drop on concrete. It doesn’t look much different from when I opened it.

The tank is functional, but let me just say I dislike the naming system Smok uses. Baby V2 suggests compatibility with previous models, like many other companies do. Nope, new tank, new coil sets, same stupid naming structure. I honestly don’t know why the single coil needs much more wattage than the dual, but it does. Flavor was decent. It lasted for about 120ml before flavor started to noticeably drop. Not burnt, but not great. The dual coil I have run about 60ml through, and it’s not bad. I haven’t decided if I’m going to get more coils for it, or shelve the tank when this coil dies. It matches the mod, and my current other tanks don’t, so maybe. If I find a deal. Maybe.

Both coils are wattage mode only.

I did attempt TC with some SS316L coils and a Dead Rabbit. It seemed to work okay, but nothing spectacular. I don’t have the fancy testing equipment. I should have probably tried the Voopoo Rune with it, but I haven’t even opened that yet.

I did charge it by USB once. Wasn’t intentional, I had worked a double and had to charge at work. I didn’t die. I wouldn’t repeat it nor recommend it.

In short, if you find this for a good price, you can do much worse. You can do better, though. Aside from the look, there isn't much to set this apart from a lot of other dual battery mods.

The Species kit is the successor to the Alien kit, but is more Robin Dunne than Natasha Henstridge, direct to DVD over in theaters.
