Slim and sexy aren’t usually the words most vapers would use to describe the majority of Smok’s offerings, but that’s changed with the release of the Smok Priv V8. Featuring an exceedingly sleek form factor, it’s one of most ideal mods to keep around in your pocket. Despite its slim frame, the Smok Priv V8 still manages to house an entire 18650 battery within its zinc alloy frame.

The Smok Priv V8 functions similarly to a mechanical mod but with a few safety features built in that help keep the average joe’s vaping experience as safe as possible. Wattage output is solely determined by the resistance of the installed coil with a hard cap at 60 watts and 0.15-ohms. What this means is that unlike other conventional regulated devices that most vapers are used to, the Smok Priv V8 doesn’t feature a display, which is what makes the slim form factor work so well. The lack of a screen makes this ideal for vapers who prefer a much more minimalist look when it comes to their mods.

The kit comes bundled with the TFV8 Baby tank, a fan favorite especially in terms of overall flavor and vapor production. Sporting a fully adjustable bottom airflow ring, it’s possible to dial in the exact amount of airflow you want with this tank, making it perfect for any type of vaper regardless of their preference. The tank also features a top refill mechanism that only requires a simple push instead of unthreading of the top cap which can get cumbersome at times.

Final Word

The Smok Priv V8 presents an interesting value proposition considering that it’s one of the slimmest devices around that supports an external battery. What this entails is reliable and powerful performance, but with the added benefit of giving you the option of replacing your battery when needed. While the lack of screen might be offputting for some, many beginners looking for a great starter kit should love the slim form factor and the great pocketability this tiny kit presents.

I have to say this is the best Vape I’ve encountered yet, I started with Blu, and NJoys,Nicorette,and patches at first.
And they did nothing for me, I purchased my first real vape last year the SMOK Alien or
AL85….. needless to say i had more problems with it then ever anticipated. Not to totally trash the device itself the employees at the particular vape shop seemed to know as much about the product as i did at the time? Witch was nothing‍♂️.. Needless to say it broke down after one day, even with the correct battery, and atomizer,
juice.whateber….It would not start up after it’s second charge.. So I brought I directly back for answers.. unfortunately the informative tech that sold me the device was not there, therefore I was stuck with your typical 20 year old dippy on duty that looked bewildrted and confused before I even stated my case or reason for being there.. In typical millennial fashion from one simple question he basically gave up before even troubleshooting the device and just issued me a new one right off the shelf..The new AL85 he gave me worked great, even better once i learned the different features from a watt setting or temp, adjusting OMHS/and amperage settings. All was well, I got it just the way i wanted it. For about a week it was ok, until I had to change the atomizer? I bought a 5 pack of them to start. (The correct ones too) It took my 3rd try, or new atomizer for it to function again, apparently there’s connection issues with these depending how each particular one comes off the assembly line.. I’m not an electrician, but after removing the metal base plate and rubber washer I was able to adjust the small copper wires accordingly to get a charge. And since then I’ve eihter ruined the atomizer when changing them, (while trying to fix) better put. And there extremely fragile easy to ruin permanently. Ok enough said, I enjoyed the AL85 when it worked but it’s not worth the hassle, it’s like working as
a small engine mechanic for free dealing with tasks that should be candy…Finally I had to
gibe up on it, and purchased the “SMOK Priv V8”…same company obviously, but 1/3 of the price of the 85… so much easy to use, lighter, more sleek, and hits better and smoother than the 85 ever did. No digital read outs, none of that shit, just an air flow option most are equipped with, the volume of intake is just based on how long you hold the ignition switch.. It charges quick too… I’ve changed 3 atomizers and several juices with no issue or problems so far (fingers crossed)
And to be honest I still smoked real butts while using the AL85 even when it was functional. I’ve only had 2 cigs in the 4 weeks I’ve had this new V8, it makes a real cigarette taste terrible and feel terrible in comparison, witch is a miracle to me? Being a pack a day guy for years. . In short all I can say is that it’s worked for me. In closing, I’m a smoker of 27 years started when I was 12 like a dipshit… and this has already cut my cigarette consumption by 95 percent in a month, for a measly 40 bucks it costs. Now everyone is different I know that, not saying it’s for everyone but just saying this vape is working for me and will continue to do so as long as it works. I love it ❤️
