Our Full Review
 
 

SMOK are usually associated more with the ‘big hitting’ variety of box mod vaporizers so we were excited to see what their entry into the starter pack market would deliver. The SMOK Baby V8 Stick is a very impressive vape pen that is just the right side of ‘easy use’ to be suitable for newbie vapers, while also delivering the kind of hit that you’d expect from a SMOK product. Best of all is that the kit provides everything needed to get up and running, including an especially high quality tank as well as two (0.15 & 0.25 ohm) atomizer coils.

Overview Of The SMOK Baby V8 Stick

It’s always tricky to second guess what really constitutes a ‘beginner’s vape’ nowadays. Not that long ago we’d use this term in regards to cig-a-like products with disposable cartridges and glowing red tips. SMOK have clearly figured out that most people converting from tobacco to vaping are nowadays willing to be a little more adventurous. Those who are willing to take a little time to get their heads around how pen vaping works will be rewarded with an impressive, well engineered vape that is actually a doddle to use, clean and service.

Key Features Of The SMOK Baby V8 Stick

First of all let’s discuss the quality of the vape. Don’t let the Baby label fool you – this pen delivers a cracking amount of smooth crisp clouds that is way above what you’d usually expect from a product in this price range. The tank comes fitted with the 0.15 ohm atomizer and it performs superbly, but do be sure to prime it properly (read the instructions newbies!). The build is great quality and slots together very nicely, let down just a little by the plastic firing button which on our model felt a little flimsy.

One thing which was an unexpected surprise was the longevity of the battery. Over a couple of days of frequent/casual use it was still going strong, and only started to flash the warning signals towards the middle of day three. That’s impressive especially given the clouds and hits that the SMOK Baby V8 was delivering. There was no follow through feature for charging which was a bit disappointing – however that’s standard for most fixed battery devices so hardly came as a great surprise. Charging is via the standard supplied micro USB cable and took a couple of hours.

Something worth pointing out is that expect to tear through your e-liquids with the supplied atomizers. Don’t get us wrong, they’re great and should last 7-10 days before turning dry, but it may be worth considering a higher ohm alternative if you want to reduce consumption a little. The Baby tank on our model held a middle of the road 2ml (although 3ml tanks are available from the right places).

Last but not least the SMOK Baby is available in several different colours/patterns ranging from camouflage all the way through to chrome, black-matt and of course pink!

Conclusion

The SMOK Baby may not be totally perfect but there’s a time and a place where now and again you need to step back, look at what you get in the comprehensive kit for your money and just say ‘yeah that’s solid value’. Anyone who hasn’t tried a SMOK engineered product before really should consider trying out this style if vape pen/sticks are your thing. It’s a premium product that a couple of years back would have easily sold for twice the price it can be picked up for today. Highly recommended for demanding vapers on a budget or ex smokers who want to get started a step above the standard introductory level.
