Review Summary

8.5 Total Score
The Alien by Smok is vaping royalty - now in a smaller package - Priceless.

Considering how well-received the Pico was, it's no surprise that Smok would introduce their own version of the popular device. But instead of being a mere copycat, the Smok AL85 manages to introduce a few welcome improvements to an already excellent design.

Overall Score
  • Classic vape - now smaller
  • 85watts - more power than most in this category
  • Super detailed screen
  • Multiple color options
  • A bigger tank would be nice

Fashioned after the hugely successful and widely popular iStick Pico, Smok isn’t very subtle when it comes to the old adage “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. But while Smok’s AL85 looks almost identical to the Pico, it does manage to introduce a few overall improvements that generally make the vaping experience a whole lot better.

For starters, the Smok AL85 features a much larger display. Not only is the larger screen a lot easier to read, the increased real estate allows you to view the entire gamut of information relevant to your device’s status with a single glance. Another big improvement is the placement of the up/down buttons used to change settings or navigate the menu; they’re now conveniently located on the front of the of the device right underneath the display, which is a big step up from the Pico which had them underneath the mod.

The fire bar feels like a substantial upgrade as well, encompassing almost the entire length of the device. With it’s clicky, tactile, and responsive activation, firing up the Smok AL85 simply feels much more satisfying, not to mention a lot more ergonomic thanks to the improved hand feel. Some things haven’t changed though, such as the battery top cap located next to the 510 connection which also features the same threaded design to facilitate easy swapping of the 18650 batteries that the mod supports.

The SMOK AL85 Alien Baby 85W TC Starter Kit is the compact revolutionary system inspired from the widely acclaimed Alien 220W, including the TFV8 Baby Beast to present a stunning combination of elegant miniaturized designs with ample performance.

The AL85 features the same Alien-style futuristic style and out of the world look with a sleek two-tone color design in an ultra-portable shape. A detailed operating interface is displayed on the clear OLED display screen which allows you to easily adjust and monitor your settings. The Alien 85 Mod requires (1) high amp 18650 battery (sold separately). A micro USB port is available for both firmware updates and charging.

Final Word

The much larger screen estate, as well the increased ergonomics prove to be a major upgrade. Adding an increased power ceiling on top of that just seals the deal for any vaper who’s considering to pick this impressive piece of kit up, regardless of them being a beginner or veteran vaper. The original Alien is among the elite, and for those wanting a killer mod but smaller – your search ends.
