Smok G-PRIV2: Performance

As looked forward to, Smok G Priv 2 has done remarkably well when it comes to vapor production. The box mod offers vapers excellent vaping experience from chill vaping up to Cloud chasing. The product is engineered to help you last beyond few sessions like other brands box mods. It features Dual 18650 batteries with no worries about firing up the sub-ohm resistance coil. This Dual Battery can last for about two days of standard vaping and a day for vigorous cloudy chasing.

The box mod comes in two coils – the V8 X-Baby Q2 and the VY X-Baby T6. 0.4 Ohm coil with a power rating of 40 – 70 watts offers larger cloudy vapors and average flavor. It is advised to operate 50 – 60 watt. For any given power above 55W, you start getting semi-dry and meagre flavors. While T6 0.2-ohm is rated 40 – 110 watt, recommended to be used within 70 – 90 watt for a better vaping experience. However, around 60 watts you still get cloudy vapors with meager flavors. The clouds are undeniably satisfying; poor taste seems to be the downside.

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.

      Patrick, yes you can, in fact if you buy the G Priv 2 Luxe, then you will get the TFV12 prince tank as well, though it might be a little more expensive but its definitely worth the money.
