4. SMOK Acro Kit

Score – 8.5/10

The SMOK Acro is the latest unit in SMOK’s growing number of pod vapes, and it’s certainly something special! The SMOK Acro has a ludicrously slimline build, barely thicker than a smartphone, lightweight and easily stored in any pocket you have.

Specifications

Wattage Output5W-25W
Battery Capacity1000mAh
Airflow AdjustmentAir inlet
Resistance Range0.6 ohm-2.5 ohm

Cons

  • Not a huge battery, but large enough for a day’s vaping

Key Features:

  • Lightweight and slimline build
  • Auto-draw means you can use it buttonless
  • Comfort-focussed disposable pods mean no messy coil changes

The Acro takes a proprietary disposable pod, meaning there’s no messy coil changes awaiting you. You just use a SMOK Acro pod until the taste wears out, toss it away and fill and install a new one! The SMOK Acro pods also see a return of a design feature which SMOK introduced with the Nord series; the duckbill mouthpiece! The Acro pod sits very comfortably in the mouth and doesn’t require you to purse your lips at all.

The SMOK Acro has an internal battery capacity of 1000mAh and a wattage output range of 5 – 25W, the 1.0ohm pods solidifying it’s nature as an MTL pod device, intended for cigarette-replacement style vaping. It’s not the best choice for those seeking huge clouds, but anyone looking for satisfying nicotine hits – which thanks to the auto-draw can be administered without pressing a button – would be hard pressed to find a more suitable device than the SMOK Acro Kit.

5. SMOK Stick N18

Score – 8.5/10

The release of the SMOK Stick N18 was a bit of a surprise; right in the midst of SMOK’s pod adventures we are suddenly presented with a decidedly old-school stick vape, but one which bears a number of design elements from their pod lines.

The SMOK N18 Vape Kit is also one of the best MTL vape kits available.

Specifications

Wattage Output9W-30W
Battery Capacity1300mAh
Airflow AdjustmentAvailable
Resistance Range0.5 ohm-3 ohm

Pros

  • Large battery for stick vape
  • Adjustable wattage
  • Versatile coil selection

Cons

  • Proprietary tank, cannot fit other tanks

Key Features:

  • Versatile due to wide pod range
  • User friendly power adjustment
  • Rapid charging

The SMOK Stick N18 is an AIO (all in one) device, meaning it doesn’t have a tank that unscrews via 510 thread like 95% of other vapes. Instead, the Stick N18 comes equipped with the N18 tank, which has a proprietary fitting and is only compatible with the Stick N18. The N18 tank can fit any of SMOK’s Nord coils or SMOK RPM coils, and has a power adjustment dial at the base that can be set within five distinct power levels, ranging from 5 – 30W.

As a result the SMOK Stick N18 is a fantastically versatile vape pen; capable of handling any degree of use from moderate cigarette replacement vaping to stonking big cloud action. The unit’s sizable 1300mAh battery will often last for up to 2-3 days of moderate use without the need to charge, and is rapidly powered via the included USB-C cable. Hefty, durable and versatile – the SMOK N18 Stick is a triumvirate of vaping satisfaction!

Best for: Indecisive vapers who want the best SMOK vape for both styles of vaping.

The SMOK Novo 4 features an 800mAh battery encased within it’s tiny frame, more than enough for a full day of steady vaping across it’s 5-25W range of power output. The device is absolutely aimed at the MTL vaper, with the Novo 4 pods fitting 0.8ohm LP1 coils, which grant a sizable but never obnoxious level of vapour with every puff.
