The screen gives important info on the battery level, puff counts, wattage, resistance, voltage as well as temperature levels. This device is quite sturdy, with a minimal rattle, and can last for years with some very basic maintenance and care.

What Batteries Does It Run On?

This vape mod runs on dual 18650 high-amp batteries, which are not included in the kit, so a user will have to buy them separately. These batteries easily allow for a full day (or more) worth of vaping to the user. They allow the Devilkin to offer quite a high-performance vaping experience, with a max output as high as 225w.

The batteries can be easily fitted into the device with a bottom-mounted door that has a slide-to-open action. The battery door is well secured and fitted, so a user will experience barely any rattle even if it vigorously shakes the device.

Smok Devilkin Tank

This device is fitted with the TVF12 Prince sub-ohm tank, which is well-known in the industry as of the high-performance tanks and high-quality build. It has a durable stainless steel exterior build with a sturdy pyrex glass tube. These tanks stand at 63 mm tall with a wide 25mm base, and its construction is explosion-proof and high temperature resistant. The TVF12 tank has a top-fill rotary design, which allows for easy refilling.

Its patented push-button locking mechanism protects against spillage of precious vape juice. TVF12 has a 5 ml juice capacity, which can be expanded to a massive 8 ml with its convex glass extension. Its large e-juice capacity cuts down the need to continually refill and allows a long-lasting, hassle-free vape experience.

A Look Into Its Vaping Experience

The Smok Devilkin delivers a rich and deep flavor with bold cloud production, with enough features to allow the user to adjust the vaping experience based on their personal preferences. Its powerful batteries offer the energy needed to enable this vape mod to perform at a max output of 225w.

The dual bottom adjustable airflow, high capacity sub-ohm tank, and high-quality coils all work in synergy with each other for a great vaping experience. The temperature and resistance control, voltage, and wattage control as well as memory modes work in favor of the user. This range of user-friendly features ensures that the mod caters to the unique preferences of a wide range of users.

Coils

The Devilkin comes with two high-quality coils that greatly enhance the user’s vaping experience. It comes pre-fitted with a 0.4-ohm V12 Prince Q4 Quadruple coil, which is ideal for use between 40 to 100W.

This coil provides a smooth and rich flavor and appears to offer the deepest and richest flavor best at around 60W to 80W. The Devilkin kit also comes with a 0.12-ohm V12 T10 Prince Decouple coils, which are ideal for use between 60 to 120W. This coil offers great flavor and bold cloud production and works its best between 80 to 110W.

Type of Airflow

One of the best features of this vape mod comes with its convenient dual bottom adjustable airflow. This easy to use airflow system lets the user modify the airflow to get the perfect balance of flavor and vape production that the user desires. So whether the user is a fan of a richer flavor and medium clouds or bold cloud production, the adjustable airflow will easily allow the tweaking needed to achieve it. To further add to the airflow control, the Devilkin comes with an 810 cobra drip tip, which has a great mouthfeel for the user.

Flavour and Vapour Production Can Be Expected

Thanks to having one of the most powerful and high capacity tanks in the category, coupled with high-performing coils, the Smok Devilkin delivers both on a great flavor and vapor production. All its features like temperature control, adjustable airflow, and coil features come together if providing a smooth and enjoyable vaping experience.

The pre-installed 0.4-ohm V12 Prince Quad coil delivers a rich flavor at around 60W, which is within its 40 to 100W limit. For bolder cloud production, there is the option to install the 0.12-ohm V12 Prince Decouple coil (for 60 to 120W).

The Competition

Smok Devilkin vs. Smok Alien

The Smok Alien is a portable, lightweight setup that also features dual 18650 batteries like the Devilkin. However, its Baby Beast TFV8 tank has a capacity of 3 ml, vis a vis 5 to 8 ml for the Devilkin.

The max output stands at 220 watts for the Alien, while its 225W for Devilkin. The Smok Alien is a good option for users who want a light and portable mod, and are ok with a much lesser vape juice capacity.

Smok Devilkin vs. X-Priv

The Smok X-Priv is quite similar to the Devilkin in many aspects but has a few added features that put it at a higher price range. Its Prince tank is the same as the Devilkin, with a 5 to 8 ml capacity, as is the 25 mm diameter base and max 225W output. It also runs on dual 18650 batteries like the Devilkin and has variable temperature, wattage, and memory modes.

The X-Priv has a larger display screen at 2” compared to the Devilkin’s 1.3” display. There are, in fact, very few differences in the critical features of both mods. It is up to the user to decide whether the X-Priv’s slightly added features justify its higher price.

I love the written word, and in my career as a journalist, I strive to provide the facts about everything I write about. There are too many false and alarmist stories out there about life and vaping mainly. My mission is to make e-cigarettes less scary to people with informative articles and extensive research on not only the possible evils of cigarettes and Big Tobacco, but the objective side of e-cigs.
