Smok made sure they packed a lot into such a small mod. It comfortably fits in the palm, yet offers up some cloud chasing sub-Ohm vaping. For beginners or veterans alike, there is a lot to like from this micro mod.

Easily fitting into a pocket, the SMOK Priv One can bring sub-Ohm vaping just about anywhere. Being an All In One mod means that even standard vaping works. Enjoy a Direct to Lung vape or Mouth to Lung vape as preferred.

This is a no-frills mod without any settings to choose from. It has an on/off switch, and a window to see how much liquid is left in the 2ml tank. Airflow is only regulated by a small hole at the base of the cap that can be covered by a finger for a tighter draw. The focus is on performance.

How does the SMOK Priv One Vape?

The clouds from this small mod by the tiny size. With the included 0.6Ohm coil, the vapor quality is high, and the flavor comes through. Blowing big plumes that can fill a room with 70/30 or even 80/20 VG to PG e-juices.

It can hit up to 60 watts with a 0.15Ohm coil (need to be bought extra). With a top airflow system, it offers up an airy Mouth To Lung vape.

One thing to keep in mind is that it delivers a cool vape, rather than warm. That said, it is a smooth vaping experience with no dry hits.

How does the SMOK Priv One Work?

Since it is created with portability in mind, it is straightforward to use. The cap is a swivel top made to stay put while filling the tank. It’s as simple as dripping some juice right into the cap and then twisting it shut.

To swap out the coil, the top cap is removed and the coil easily replaced. Most coils will last over a week with heavy vaping. The tank is inside the body and can’t be removed, but, this also prevents leaks.

Charging it takes about 90 minutes, and a full charge will last most of the day depending on how heavy a vaper is using it.With an average vaping it lasts up to 3 days. To turn it on, it takes five clicks of the firing bar.

Is the Priv One Safe to Use?

The AIO mod has a few safety features to give some piece of mind. It has short circuit protection to prevent it from burning out, Impedance Protection, 8 seconds cut-off and low battery warning. Though the signal for low battery is more to avoid hard hits.

How Does Smok Priv One Compare to the Competition?

Smok-Priv-One All-In-One Starter Kit
Wismec Reuleaux RX Mini – This micro mod may be better suited to use with other coils, but the included ones do not do well for flavor with vaping at higher watts.

Artery Nugget V2 – This is definitely not a mod for beginners as it has quite a learning curve to it.

There isn’t much to criticise, but in comparison, it does have some leakage issues.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.

    Every time i go to hit it after not hitting it for awhile (the juice has soaked through the cotton and enters the air chamber) it then shoots straight into my mouth burning my lips! This is a horrendous and absolute fail and i cant believe the 91 score u gave it… you did mean maybe u meant negative 91?
    Ive switched out coils numerous times and it happens EVERY TIME!

    Hello! I just bought the Priv one and love it. My only concern is that the 2 coils in the box lasted 2 and 1 days! I bought a extra coil box and now i’m on my 4 day on my new coil.The 2 first one were flooded in a a matter of hours. I change juice and with the tird coil it seems to last.I wonder if you add any feedback about those coils. Are the smok coils usually good? Thank you for your time.
