Today we are going to review the T-Priv Kit by Smok! We also have a video of the review which you can watch here 🙂
For this review we picked up the kit, & inside you'll find:
- T-Priv mod
- instruction booklet
- battery safety card
- certificate of authenticity
- extra o-rings
- extra coil
- micro USB charging cable
- vape bands (to protect the tank from breaking)
- Big Baby tank
- spare glass (for the tank)
The Big Baby tank is a basic sub-ohm situation. It comes fully assembled in the kit so really all that you need to do is unscrew the bottom piece (ours is silver, but the color of the tank pieces will depend on what color mod you have) to prime the coil that sits within the bottom piece, & then you screw it back on to the tank. The top part of the tank (the part with the drip tip) has a feature where you can slide over a small door to reveal a kidney shaped hole & this is where you can fill the tank.
On to the mod! It's a dual 18650 mod, meaning you'll need 2 18650 batteries in order to make the mod work. There's a door at the bottom that you'll open to access the battery, & the battery orientation that's required to make the device work is clearly marked. Once the batteries are placed inside in the correct orientation & you click the door shut, the mod will light up to indicate that you're almost ready to vape!
Note: If the batteries are not inserted correctly the mod will not light up or turn on.
On the mod there is a black bar that takes up an entire side- this is the fire button. Or fire bar, really. You'll push this bar 5 times in succession to turn on the device. The screen is a small black area at the top of the mod that will light up when the device is activated. Once the screen turns on you'll be able to see a few numbers & pictures that indicate the wattage, battery power, ohms, volts, & the number 0.0. The 0.0 at the bottom of the screen will tell you how long your puff is.
If you click the fire bar 3 times you'll be taken to the menu. After the 3 clicks you'll see "Mode" then you click the fire bar again & see "Puff," click, "Color," click, "Settings," click, "Power," click again & you're back to "Mode."
When you get to "Mode" press & hold the fire bar to open that menu option. When the option is opened you'll see an option for "Watt" & then if you press the fire bar again the option "Temp" will appear. For now we will stick with "Temp." Press & hold the fire bar to bring up a "Strength" option. This is where you can adjust the wattage using the 2 small black buttons on the side below the screen. Use the left button to bring the wattage down & use the right button to bring the wattage up. If you press & hold the fire bar again you can choose what kind of coil you're using. Press & hold again for more adjustments within the coil option.
If you click through the menu again & go to the "Color" option, you can click through an array of different colors that will light up throughout the device. You can also choose how often you want the lights to turn on, when they turn on, whether they flash or fade, & if you want them off altogether.
There are so many more options for this device & I would recommend watching our video to view all of the things!
What we like about the T-Priv: the LED lights are neat, the large fire bar is easy to use, & the device is well-made.
What don't like about the T-Priv: the up/down buttons are pretty small, the menu system is generally pretty easy to understand but it's still very complex & unnecessary for our needs, the instruction booklet is not clear or does not address how to navigate through the menu, the screen placement is strange (but we do understand why they chose that location), & the LEDs are cool but they don't serve a particularly important purpose for us.
Most of what we don't like about this device is purely based on personal preference & it's not due to any failure on the part of Smok. Overall, this is a pretty good option for anyone who vapes. It has a reasonable price point ($40-$50) & gets the job done with some pretty great features.
That's all we have for today! Thank you so much for reading & remember to #StaySavage!
