SMOK G-Priv 220W Review

SMOK G-Priv intro

Touchscreen devices are everywhere… may as well be on a mod too!

The Smok G-Priv is a 220W mod featuring a 2.4-inch touchscreen that has the most advanced OLED display to date of any mod. The G-Priv also features full temperature control modes including adjustable TCR for any wire type. he user may also adjust between 5 settings for the speed that you would like your vape to heat up in VW mode, or use a Pre-heat function for temperature control.

I received the G-Priv kit which pairs the mod with the Big Baby TFV8 Sub-ohm tank. Since the Big Baby has been reviewed already on Vaping360 this review will concentrate largely on the mod.

Let’s dive into the review and look at the details of the G-Priv.

Notable Remarks

Design

smok-g-priv-kit-screen

The Smok G-Priv mod is a dual-battery 220-watt mod wired in series. The chassis is zinc alloy with a plastic firing bar similar to the H-Priv mod that was released previously. The battery door features a nice looking carbon fiber inlay, and the magnets that hold the door to the mod are quite strong. In fact, I have had a little trouble pulling the door off to change my batteries, but I definitely prefer that to my ipv5 that has a door that won’t stay on now matter how much I curse it.

The dimensions of the G-Priv are 85 mm tall by 58.5 mm wide, with a depth of 28 mm. It is a relatively short mod, approximately the same height as the Wismec rx200. The 28 mm depth does include the two side panels, but 25 mm diameter atomizers fit perfectly. I had no issues with any of the atomizers I tried sticking up off the mod’s spring-loaded 510 connector.

Touchscreen

smok-g-priv-kit-screen-2

The most exciting feature of the G-Priv is the advanced touch screen. Covered with shatterproof glass (and no, I didn’t try to see if I could break it, but my nickname could be Super Clutz), the 2.4-inch OLED screen is intuitive and features nice graphics. The screen lock button prevents your settings from being accidentally changed while the mod is in a pocket, purse, or shoved down between the bench seat in my pickup truck. To activate the screen lock, simply press the silver rectangular button located above the firing bar. Doing so will also cause the screen to go black, saving on battery power. Pressing the screen lock button again will activate the screen once again to allow the vaper to change settings or check the dual battery icons to estimate remaining battery life.

I found using the touch screen to very intuitive and glitch free. Clicking the firing bar five times in two seconds turns on the G-Priv. The mod will prompt you to choose from New Coil or Same Coil. From there the home screen shows four icons: TC Mode, VW Mode, Max Puff and Settings.

Once you have chosen VW mode you may adjust your wattage setting from 1W up to the full 220W. There is a bar to allow fast adjustment and also + and – signs for fine tuning. Users may also choose how slowly or quickly their atomizer heats up by clicking Effects. Five choices are offered: Min, Max, Soft, Norm, and Hard. Once you have made your selections click on Activate to begin vaping. You will also see a new screen that allows you to change your wattage, counts puffs and shows resistance and remaining battery life. You may allow that screen to remain visible or press the Screen Lock to lock-in your screen and black it out.

Features of the G-Priv

The G-priv has a huge range of power adjustment, ranging from 1 to 220 W. The minimum atomizer resistance allowed is 0.06 ohms.

Not surprisingly, the G-Priv has temperature control (TC). Users may adjust between 200 and 600 degrees fahrenheit. What is a bit surprising are that all the bells and whistles are included, and that isn’t something seen often for a mod in this price range. The G-Priv has modes for ni200, titanium and stainless steel. However, it also has Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR) adjustments. I was very happy about having adjustable TCR since I use stainless steel wire. Since stainless steel is available in several grades, mods that do not allow users to adjust TCR often will not work well for me in TC mode because they may not be programmed for the grade of stainless steel I am using.

Users may choose how quickly or slowly their atomizer heats up with the following settings: Min, Max, Soft, Normal, Hard.

Verdict

The G-Priv kit is aimed at vapers who like to “put the pedal to the metal” and pump out massive performance. And this combo sure will! I recommend the kit to cloud lovers looking for a nicely paired mod and tank, especially if you enjoy the convenience of using factory coil heads.

For those looking at the G-Priv mod only, it will suit a large variety of vapers with its range of power settings. You get a lot of nice features for the money, all wrapped up in a smart-looking package.

Review of SMOK TFV8

The Body

The vape’s body is reliable, sturdy and is built using stainless steel. You can expect that that product from SMOK has been carefully designed, not to mention that its glass tube further adds to its overall appearance.

The Tank

The capacity of this tank is made higher and this means that you can refill it even at bigger intervals. You can also refill the liquid easier, thanks to its top mounting cap. It has massive airflow ports complemented by the intense air movement throughout the tank. It then allows the production of large vapor amounts, much to the delight of its user.

The Performance

SMOK TFV8’s turbo design coils have been designated as this can operate to as much as 260W. This can work really well at 180 and 120 watts although you can still operate this even on higher wattage. Its tank also consumes a bigger amount of e-Juice and can run on higher power. Its coils together with the high intensity of air movement in the tank are what make it possible to achieve its high performance. It results to a deeper vaping experience and enormous clouds of vape.

Probably one notable downside considering the cost constraint is that it needs huge consumption of juices for this vape to run in its most efficient manner. To achieve high performance, high inputs are also needed.

But despite this small underside, there is no denying that TFVV8 can produce remarkably high amounts of vapor making it perfect for all the cloud buffs out there.

The Flavor

SMOK TFV8 can give you a dense flavor. You need to operate this vape on levels more than 80 watts for you to get the deep, rich and intense flavor that this particular SMOK is meant to give out.

Final Verdict

The SMOK TFV8 is no doubt a beast which boosts of high power and high energy which then calls for high performers. This has been specially created for the vapers who prefer high intensity vaping wherein larger amounts of clouds are produced. This particular vape is not recommended for the first timers since the flavors it gives out are rather strong and can directly hit your lungs.

SMOK has definitely got past their earlier versions and made it possible to create superior quality vape that real vaping players will surely love and enjoy.

Geekvape Zeus RTA Specifications and Features

Capacity:4 mL
Size: 38 (H) x 25 mm (D)
3D Airflow from both sides and bottom
Top fill

With a name shared with the ruler of the Olympian Gods, the Zeus RTA has a lot to live up to.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewAs soon as you see this tank it’s striking looks catch your eye instantly; with its clean lines and simple, yet stylish Zeus engraving on the side panel and the Zeus Greek God symbol printed on the inner chamber. This RTA really stands out from the crowd.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewThe top Airflow design gives this tank great balance and proportions, with it’s thicker weighted top end, incorporating the simple air-flow control ring, and topped off with a choice of either the 510 or 810 Delrin Drip Tips.

But what makes this tank unique is not it’s striking good looks, but what’s on the side.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewGeekvape have chosen to go with a single coil deck, for maximum flavour and to be honest, with the addition of the 3D Airflow system, there wouldn’t have been much room for another coil anyway.

Flowing in from the dual top-mounted adjustable air-slots, the air is directed down through the outer wall of the chamber. Through the speciality air defusing airholes, some of the air is channelled down and around the base, hitting the coils from underneath, leaving the majority of the air to be directed onto the sides of the coil. Creating the 3D flow.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewThis attention to detail, perfecting the 3-dimensional flow, really does intensify the flavour that this RTA produces. It truly makes this RTA stand out from the crowd.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Tank.

Most other top Airflow tank designs have struggled to channel the air down to were it needs to be, resulting in quite a weak level of flavour, due to the air coming in and being sucked straight back out. Whereas the Zeus design has incorporated the air Flow channels and defusers into the actual build deck, rising up out of the deck, like two pillars on either side.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewDue to space limitation, Geekvape have opted for a postless deck. It allows for effortless coil installation, positioning the single coil directly between the two air diffusers and directly above the central airhole.

When installing the deck back into the chamber it is just a matter of lining up the air diffuser posts with the recessed air channels, which have been machined into the top of the chamber.

Great Airflow doesn’t mean anything if your tank won’t wick. The design team at Geekvape have absolutely nailed it, giving deep recessed juice ports on either side of the build deck, perfectly in-line with the coils, allowing you to simply thread your coils, trim off, and lay into the juice ports, for perfect wicking every time.

Easy access to fill up is essential when vaping on the go too. It couldn’t be easier to fill up the Zeus, simply giving the top cap a quarter turn. Then the top comes off, cleverly been held in place by a unique notch design, which I haven’t seen before.

When you are used to it, it definitely becomes easier and quicker than unscrewing and screwing a top cap on and off.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewGeekvape Zeus RTA Performance and User Experience

I have been using the Geekvape Zeus for the last three weeks. As my everyday work tank, and paired up with the Geekvape AEGIS, it has been absolutely faultless. Therefore, I can happily report, that as stated it is ‘Leak-Proof ‘.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewThis cleverly designed tank is a true flavour machine, delivering ‘true life’ flavour on every puff. Considering the level of flavour, this RTA doesn’t hold back on vapor production either. With the Airflow wide open and a single fused Clapton running at 55w, this thing chugs like a steam train.

Geekvape Zeus RTA ReviewWith its unique design, 3D Airflow for ultimate flavour recreation, this RTA will be one of the award-winning tanks of 2017 for sure.
