Product Spotlight: Smok Alien 220W Starter Kit

Smok Alien 220W Starter Kit

The Smok Alien 220W Starter Kit is actually made up of two separate devices. There is a sub-ohm tank that goes by the name of TFV8 Baby Beast. The first part of this review will focus on this tank. The second part of the starter kit is a box mod known as Alien 220W TC dual-18650. The second part of this review will focus on that. Let’s get started!

The TFV8 Baby Beast Sub-Ohm Tank

If you are familiar with the Cloud Beast, the Baby Beast is basically its little brother. Overall, it stands up to other tanks quite nicely. What users are most commonly saying is that the performance level is “great”. There has been much improvement, over time, in airflow, vapor production, and flavor where these types of devices are concerned, and this particular tank is a good example of that. At higher wattages, however, the tank might get a little hot.

For cloud chasers, an attractive alternative to other devices is the TFV8 Baby Beast sub-ohm tank. There tends to be very little difference between this device and the SMOK TFV4 Micro Tank, however, so either unit you choose will serve your purpose adequately. For those never having tried vaping from TF tanks, either of these devices will be most impressive.

To put it simply, the TFV8 Baby Beast sub-ohm tank is the latest refinement in the natural evolution of the line of SMOK TF devices. It isn’t ‘new’. It isn’t radical. But it is divine.

The Alien 220W TC Dual-18650 Box Mod

If you are familiar with the P4U iPV 6/6X and the Sigelei 213 mods, this box mod is similar in power output, shape, and size. Differences you may notice will include menu navigation, display screens, regulating chips, and overall cosmetic design. Among Chinese mod makers, this device is currently extremely popular.

Performance wise, it is what experienced vapers would expect from high-power, current generation box mods. All modes offer instantaneous firing which is adjustable for standard, soft, or hard initial ramp-up. The temp control works well and is very accurate. And it doesn’t take a technically savvy individual to navigate the simple, straightforward menu system – which is good news for many.

Overall, the performance is exceptional with current manufacturing standards and chip technology being substantially greater than a couple of years ago. What this means for you is superior performance and improvement in the life of the device.

Users of the Alien 220W TC dual-18650 box mod have listed the pros as the following: firmware upgradability (OTA or USB via Bluetooth); hinged battery door for easy swaps; the firing bar (which is a cool feature); a comfortable, ergonomic design; industrial but sleek so it’s stylish and beautiful; and finally, lots of options and good performance. What’s not to love?

It may feel a little heavy to some, and there don’t seem to be any safety protections listed, but this is of little consequence to many experienced vapers. And, to put it bluntly, with all of the positive aspects, this isn’t something that should stop someone from purchasing such a fine device. Among the current generation devices of this kind, the Alien 220W TC dual-18650 box mod easily passes the test.

All in all, the Smok Alien 220W Starter Kit is perfect for advanced vapors down to intermediate papers. It is for those who wish to enjoy an all-in-one setup of hardware that is stylish yet provides superior performance and ample power.
