Smok have annouced the release of the Alien 220w mod kit its apperance is tall rather than wide; narrow, not boxy; more of a rectangle, similar to a lot of other mods in the same category. There’s something about the style of the Alien that sets it apart from many new mods out on the market.


The Alien uses two 18650 batteries which are not included in the kit, Resting firmly behined its cover, the removable batteries can be recharged independently as recomended using an adapter, but a USB port allows you to choose the connected recharging method instead.


The power of the Alien allows it to achieve a maximum of 220W or switch to Variable Temperature mode and choose a range. Watts will automatically fall into line. TCR is another available setting and is touted as more efficient than either of the other two.


Always attach a Titanium, Ni200, or stainless steel coil when operating the mod in TC mode. It won’t work otherwise, regarding a Kanthal coil as “alien” in this context. With a TC coil in place, 0.06 ohms is your minimum resistance.


The Alien OLED screen is very distinctive and is somewhat of an out of this would experiance feature. smok's electronics don’t vary much from set to set. They are protected in the same ways model to model. 

The screen on SMOK’s newest device doesn’t look like a display. It’s part of the black exterior but framed within a red or yellow polygon featuring angled sides top and bottom, their lines overlapping the corners.


Diagonals create an off-kilter style which certainly fits with the idea of being turned upside down in an alien craft, launched into space, or feeling out of place. Yet, this new design isn’t out of place; it’s exactly what modern vapers have been waiting for.


SMOK’s screen is also larger as a result of placing it on the front and allowing substantial room to increase the font. Big, bright, white letters and numbers display your power and resistance.


SMOK’s Alien continues the Bluetooth trend they started with the XCube. Use an app to set your mod up or to read data about how it has performed and the ways you have used it. This is also upgradeable firmware.


Besides their new screen, SMOK provides a soft exterior made with carbon fiber. Carbon Fiber is a practical material for a portable device. It’s light but sturdy. If you drop the mod it will probably remain unscathed barring a few scratches, but the texture of carbon fiber also prevents slipping, so there’s a good chance you won’t drop it at all.

At the back, SMOK provides a magnetized door to cover batteries, making access quick and painless. Measuring 85 x 44 x 28.4 mm, this is a compact device.

The Alien starter kit also contains a TFV8 Baby Tank. SMOK’s RBA comes with a V8 Q2 0.4 ohm dual coil already inside, a 0.15-ohm octuple coil, and a replacement tube.
