The SMOK Morph 219W Kit Review: The Close-Up
The SMOK Morph could be mistaken for any number of other SMOK mods, like the Alien, Species or the Priv mods, as they both have the same, rectangular shape, touchscreen, and side-firing button. The mod does sport a 1.9″ HD touchscreen that does look great.
The screen is bright, and responsive, and does not lag while inputting or enabling a function. The rest of the mod features a zinc alloy chassis, with a resin-based backplate that can come in several colors, five, to be exact. There is also a small USB port on the front of the device, right under the screen to charge the dual-18650s inside and to install any firmware upgrades.
As of this writing, SMOK has not released any firmware updates, as the Morph is a relatively new device. There is a tiny locking key right above the firing switch, which locks the screen but not the firing switch. Users can still vape when the switch is enabled; they just can’t change their settings.
Another exciting security feature SMOK included on this chip is the passcode function. In the touchscreen menu, it’s possible to set a passcode to further protect the mod from being used by the wrong people (children). The feature seems more like a novelty than an actual benefit, but its something worth noting.
Up top, the Morph has a spring-loaded, gold-plated 510 connection and its top plate measures well over 25mm, around 28mm (1.1 inches) in diameter, so it can comfortably fit wider mods. The two 18650 cells that power the Morph are loaded through the hinged, bottom-battery bay doors. Release a latch to open it, but the door clicks into place to close and stays pretty secure.
As the SMOK Morph comes in a kit, there are plenty of user accessories loaded into each package. SMOK usually does an excellent job of outfitting their kits with a lot of goodies, and this kit is no exception.
The SMOK Morph 219W Standard Version includes:
- One SMOK Morph Mod
- One SMOK TF 6ml tank (pre-installed with a BF-Mesh 0.25ohm coil)
- One spare 0.25ohm BF-Mesh coil
- One protective silicone tank band
- One USB cable
- One user manual
- One bag of spare parts
There is also a TPD version of the tank that comes with a 2ml capacity tank, as well as another standard EU version which has a 5ml tank capacity, instead of a 6ml capacity.
Using the Morph Mod
Touchscreens are invaluable in making box mod vaping all the more easier. They eliminate the need for obsolete adjustment buttons, and button combinations, which, for some reason, other vapers/reviewers prefer over the ease of a touchscreen mod.
Anywho, a touchscreen mod is about as easy to use as a touchscreen on any other electronic device. New devices have come a long way since the first ones though. Those early models like the Joyetech CUBOID or even SMOK’s G-Priv mod (even though it is not that old) were excellent, but they still lacked the speed and functioning or a proper touchscreen.
The updated G-Priv, as well as the new Morph, have pretty much solved the problem of slow, unresponsive touchscreens. The main menu screen (after an interesting moto message appears on the boot-up screen, “The Space Miscegenation”) features a pretty standard setup.
Variable wattage readings are seen on the main screen. There are also two side arrow adjustment buttons, and all kinds of other information like battery life, preheat mode, vaping mode, vape timer, resistance, voltage, amps, and puff counter.
From this main menu, it is pretty straightforward on how to access and use the rest of the mod’s options. The side menu has four distinct options: Mode, My Mode, Puff, and Setting. In the Mode section temperature control mode is available for nickel, titanium and stainless steel; it’s possible to set the already-mentioned preheat mode, at either soft, normal, hard or Max.
The My Mode option function as a memory option, to input preferred resistance, wattage, the name of e-juice and the nicotine strength of the e-juice so the mod can remember those specific settings.
The screen also lets fool around with non-vaping related features like the screen color, the brightness, and the wallpaper. There is also the option of setting the passcode as mentioned earlier, which even prompts with security questions like were logging into an online bank account.
Vaping the SMOK Morph 219
The SMOK TF tank with those new mesh-style coils promises all the same savory flavor and cloudy goodness that other mesh-coils claim to provide. By and large, the coils, as well as the tank deliver on that promise.
Like with most SMOK tanks, the machining and build quality of the tank is remarkable. It looks and feels reliable, well-designed, and is very easy-to-use and fill. They even made it so that the coils are plug-and-play, instead of using 510 threads.
This tank even comes with a raised coil base to soak the coil longer in the glass bubble section. The tank features stainless steel and Pyrex glass in its build, as well as an 810-Cobra resin drip tip that looks pretty badass as far as drip tips go.
Although some reviewers have mentioned, they got a 510, instead of an 810 drip tip, which may have come with earlier versions of the mod (like the one I reviewed). There is a massive, bottom, adjustable airflow vent that runs around the length of the base (almost). And the top-fill part of the tank features the SMOK method of the push-back top, which locks in place with a latch, so it does not come free by accident.
The 0.25ohm BF-mesh coil comes pre-installed, and it vapes best between 60-70W, while the full range of the coil is 30-80W. Of course, that range does not even approach the Morph’s 219W maximum, but other coil options are available for the TF tank and all the other TFV tanks in SMOK’s lineup, including a ceramic, MTL coil, which SMOK has never released before.
As for the vapor, the mod and tank work wonders together. The 80W maximum for the BF-Mesh coils is more than enough to get the most out of the coil design. Vaping at lower levels, like 60, or even 50W still produced that smooth, effortless draw, as well as a great deal of cloud cover.
The Competitors: the SMOK Morph 219W vs. the Vaporesso Polar vs. the SMOK G-Priv 220W
The Vaporesso Polar
The Vaporesso Polar is a dual-18650 mod that features a 2″ TFT (not a touchscreen) and carries the new Omni 4.0 board that enables such functions as the custom curve modes, as well as its 220W output.
The Polar stands at over 144mm (5.6 inches) with the tank. The tank in the kit is the Vaporesso Cascade Baby SE tank that has a 6.5ml e-juice capacity and uses sub-ohm GT mesh coils.
The SMOK G-Priv 220W
The SMOK G-Priv 220W mod was one of SMOK’s original touchscreen mods. It is a dual 18650 device with variable wattage and temperature control as its main vaping outputs. The mod’s chipset also enables the preheat function common to most SMOK mods now.
The mod’s 2.4inch touch enabled the features LED screen. The G-Priv also came with the TFV8 Baby sub-ohm tank. The G-Priv measures about 85mm (or 3.3 inches) tall and can fit atomizers well above 25mm (or 0.9 inches) in diameter.

Pros & Cons
- Great user interface
- Very easy-to-navigate
- Touchscreen is bright
- Tank and mesh coils deliver great vapor
- Lack of advanced vaping outputs
Conclusion: The Last Word on the SMOK Morph 219W
The SMOK Morph 219W follows in the footsteps of other, not only touchscreen mods but SMOK mods as well. It has a similar shape as many other SMOK mods, a similar side-firing button, but the user interface is much improved over previous SMOK attempts at a workable touchscreen.
They seem to have perfected their mods capabilities though, as this screen is one of the easiest ones to use. It is seamless how easy it is to switch between modes, lock the settings, or do anything else on the Morph’s bright, easy-to-navigate screen.
Rarely do SMOK devices and tanks falter in their mastery of vapor production. Since everyone seems to be jumping on the mesh-coil bandwagon, the BF mesh coils for the TF tank are superb. They are very smooth on the draw, and the flavor quality is also excellent.
It would have been better to see more vaping-related features added onto the board. A passcode feature to lock the mod is cool, but it would’ve been much better to add another vaping output (bypass or curve. But overall, the Morph 219W and the TF tank make a good match for anyone who loves SMOK devices or touchscreen mods.
