The Smok Morph Pod 40 is Smok’s latest upgrade to its impressive line of pod mods. It has both looks and functionality in its corner, with an ergonomic design and features like 40 watt output, RPM coils, and a 3.7 ml pod. This kit is perfect for people who want a pod mod that is more powerful than disposable vapes and refillable cartridge mods.

Smok Morph Pod 40 Review

The Morph Pod 40 will be a pleasant surprise to anyone who wants a restrictive and flavorful vape. The vapor is thick and silky, and the coils suck every bit of flavor out of the coils. It hits instantly and is possibly one of the quickest hitting vapes on the market.

The vaping experience is further improved by the adjustable screen, plug-and-play coils, and numerous safety features. The only thing that detracts from the vaping experience is how slow the wattage increases and the sticky adjustment buttons. Other than that, the vaping experience is still pretty good.

Vapor Production

These RPM replacement coils are very restrictive, but that does not prevent them from producing high amounts of vapor. A person needs to exhale twice to get all the vapor out, putting it on par with some RTA/RDAs.

Power Modes

This is a straight wattage vape, so there is no need to worry about power modes. But the two different coils allow for some variation.

Safety Features

  • Eight Second Cut-Off
  • Low Voltage Warning
  • Intelligent Atomizer Recognition
  • Lithium-Ion Protection
  • Short-Circuit Protection
  • High Temperature Protection

Inside the Smok Morph Pod Kit

Smok Morph Pod 40 Starter Kit

The starter kit comes with the mod, a Rom pod, and two RPM coils (RPM Triple 0.6ohm coil and RPM Mesh 0.4ohm coil). There is also a USB Type-C cable and a user manual. Give the manual a good reading to fully understand how the kit operates.

Internal Build Quality and Design

The design is excellent, but the build quality has some things that need improvement. First off, the form factor is outstanding, and the leather grip gives it the appearance of a skinny football. No criticisms there. The pod fits perfectly in the vape, and it seals perfectly.

The only problem with the build quality is that the adjustment buttons are too close together. As a result, they get stuck together. This is very problematic because it is easy to skip past the desired wattage level.


The vape is powered by a 2,000 mah onboard battery. It can last several hours if used on moderate settings. Three vent holes are drilled into the bottom to keep the battery from overheating. Plus, the USB-C cable and port allow the vape to charge very quickly.


A black and white 0.91 inch screen shows the menu system and information like battery life, resistance, wattage, and a puff counter. Battery life is shown as a percentage superimposed on a picture of a battery. The screen can also be flipped so that the information is displayed in whatever format the user wants.


The airflow on this pod is excellent, no matter what coil is used. There is a tab on the side of the pod that allows for switching from mouth-to-lung to direct-to-lung. With some mods that use RPM coils, the airflow is very open, which reduces flavor production. However, the airflow on this pod is very restrictive, even when it is all the way open.


This is an impressive pod, as already shown. There is no leaking, and it has an airtight seal when clicked onto the vape. The seal is why airflow is so restrictive, even in DL mode. It works with 0.4 and 0.6 ohm plug-and-play coils.

Refilling is done from the top via a fill port with a silicone stopper. Top filling pods are the best because they can be filled up while still on the vape. Also, it has an excellent mouthpiece and a juice window for checking liquid levels.

How Long Do the Coils Last?

These coils can last over a week if they are adequately primed and broken in. To prime, drip liquid into the coils and push them into the pod. Fill the pod with liquid and wait five to ten minutes before vaping. When vaping, start at the lowest wattage setting and gradually increase the temperature. Doing this will improve coil life and flavor.

How to Use This Vape Kit

Pod mods are easy to use, and this vape is no exception. The coils are pushed into the bottom of the pod and refilled by lifting the tab at the top of the pod. A small juice window shows the user when the pod is at capacity. Avoid spilling by using a syringe to refill the pods. Use the sidebar firing button to start vaping.

Step-by-Step Guide for Button Operation

  • Click five times to turn it on
  • Three times to lock/unlock it
  • Five times to bring up the screen orientation menu
  • Three more times in the screen orientation menu to get to the deactivation menu
  • Select “yes” and hold the firing button to power off
  • Hold both firing buttons to lock wattage
  • Press down and firing button to clear puff counter
  • Use up and down arrows to increase the wattage

Smok Morph Pod 40 vs. Suorin Elite 40W VW Pod System Kit

Suorin Elite 40W VW Pod System Kit Colors

  • The Suorin Elite 40W is an excellent vape for beginners, but so is the Smok Morph 40.
  • The Surorin Elte 40W does not have as robust a battery (1,100 mah) as the Morph 40’s, and its juice capacity (3.1 ml) is lower.
  • One of the Suorin Elite’s advantages is that it uses a 1.0 ohm round wire coil, making it better at vaping salt nicotine, but the draw is not restrictive enough.
  • But the Suorin Elite’s juice levels are harder to monitor because the plastic on the pod is too dark.
  • Also, the Suorin Elite is not as comfortable to hold.
  • Honestly, the Smoke Morph is a better device because of its restrictive airflow and better form factor.

Smok Morph Pod 40 vs. Geek Vape Aegis Boost 40W Pod Mod Kit

VD GeekVape Aegis Boost Colors

  • Like the Smok Morph 40, the Aegis Boost has an ergonomic design that makes it easy to transport and comfortable to vape.
  • The Aegis Boost’s most significant advantage is its IP67 rating, meaning it is resistant to water, shock, and dust. This feature makes it ideal for those who work in blue-collar jobs or enjoy sports like hiking and biking.
  • Another advantage is that its buttons do not get stuck.
  • However, the Morph Pod 40 has a better battery, a larger screen, and its kit comes with an extra Morph coil.
  • The Aegis Boost kit only has one coil.

The Aegis Boost is a better device for those who need something rugged and dependable. In that respect, it is the Kalashnikov of vaping. However, the Morph Pod 40 is better for those who want an overall better vaping experience.

Closing Thoughts About This Kit

The Smok Morph Pod 40 is a good device, overall. Its most prominent advantages are:

  • its restrictive airflow
  • the two excellent coils in the starter kit
  • the build quality of the pod.

However, some areas need improvement.

For one, there is the issue with the adjustment buttons getting stuck together. Also, the wattage takes too long to adjust. All things considered, though, the advantages outweigh those two minor problems.

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.

    I don’t understand why you said the morph 40 takes too long to adjust wattage, it’s as fast as you can push two buttons together and unlock it
