One of the most noticeable benefits of the design is the grip. It is a square with the vape tank or mouthpiece on one side so a person can easily hold on without fear of dropping it.

The Smok X-Priv vape mod is built to last. According to reviews from experienced vapers, it has lasted them over two years and counting. The X-Priv is quite durable, and if treated right has the possibility to last for a very long time. It is a great deal when someone does not have to pay an arm and a leg in price either.

If for whatever reason your piece decides to have issues, there is a warranty on the box mod from the time of purchase. However, it is highly unlikely that it will start acting up. Plus, if there are issues with other parts of the box mod when it is purchased, then you’re in luck. There are many spare or replacement parts included in the purchase.

Features of the Smok X-Priv 225W

The Smok X-Priv kit features an amazing high-def 2.0’’ screen on the body of the box mod. This also includes an updated user interface to help provide better operational control for the buyer. The screen is able to be customized, and display options can be changed. This includes a screen that can count puffs, voltage, and charge life.

When a vape mod has a large screen it is a very useful feature because the buyer can see the battery life along with how much they have been using it. This would come in handy if someone thinks they are going through a lot of liquid in their tank. The screen shows how many puffs have been taken to assure all features are working properly.

When using a Smok X-Priv be sure to notice that the device itself, even if used regularly, does not eat up the battery life very quickly. The device is designed for the buyer to get the most out of it without having to charge every hour. Battery life is important because if the batteries keep dying or are at a low level, a person is not experiencing vaping to the fullest.

The dual battery box mod has an advanced chipset which features many control modes that include Temperature Control, VW mode, and even a memory mode that will enhance a vapers experience while using this mod. These control modes are important if the best experience is wanted while vaping with its quadruple coils. The temperature control mode will help beginner vapers not experience as much heat for a smoother hit.

Up as well as down buttons are almost unnoticeable but still big enough to complete the controls that they may need to be used for. This is a great feature because it does not make the vape mod look bulky or cheaply made. It helps keep the design sleek and slender for easy everyday use.

The TFV12 Prince Tank that is included holds 8mL of e-liquid in the bulb glass. The TFV12 Prince tank has a click-and-fill system that fills at the top and can be locked for convenience. This means that the mouthpiece simply slides over or swivels around and the tank is exposed for filling. It is a very convenient way to fill a vape because it helps avoid spilling and leaking.

Smok X-Priv 225W Review: Performance

The Smok X-Priv 225 W allows a vape enthusiast to adjust the settings to personal preference and what they enjoy most. With an easy to fill the tank and a clean coil, a vaper is ready to go. For the best performance, make sure there is a clean quadruple coil, charged batteries, and e-juice in the tank.

Once this is done, the vape experience is ready to begin. This unit has many different settings to allow what is a smooth hit. That is because the range is six watts to 225 watts.

This means that if a person has never vaped before they could easily use this vape as a beginner at a lower wattage. As they grow more comfortable and used to vaping they can up the wattage for a bigger, better, smoother hit.

According to many reviews of both beginner vapers and experienced vapers, this vape mod is one of the best there is to order. Based on the performance, style, and money alone this is easy to see.

Experienced vapers love how smooth the hit is and how durable the vape mod itself is. Beginner vapers are loving that the wattage can go lower for a smooth hit for them to begin on and how they can amp up the wattage as they please.

Innokin Proton 235W TC Box Mod Review

While the Innokin Proton has a higher wattage, a person is sacrificing the unique style of the Smok when it comes to this product. This device only comes in three colors which can make it difficult to show a personal style. Many people do not enjoy plain colors according to reviews. The Innokin also does not have all the features, such as the large screen display and hidden buttons, as the Smok does.

Smok has an overall better look and is more practical. The Smok has a superior design that will allow a better grip and is built sturdier than the Innokin. Not to mention, the Innokin is very expensive compared to the Smok X-Priv.


While the Vaporesso Switcher is not as expensive as the Innokin, it still is pricier than the Smok X-Priv. Plus, this vape has a poor, bulky looking design. The Vaporesso looks very unwieldy and impractical.

The box mod itself has a big screen, but it looks like it is outdated, meaning the design isn’t modern. It looks almost like plastic and very breakable, and according to many reviews, it is not very durable.

  • Flawless performance

Conclusion of the Smok X-Priv 225W

When it comes to a vape mod kit, the Smok X-Priv 225W is one of the best on the market in regards to both price and value. When purchased this has many parts that are self-explanatory and very easy to replace and use.

When taking a look at the pros and cons someone can see that the pros definitely outweigh the cons in this case. A vape or anything metallic or mirrored is going to be a fingerprint magnet. It is just going to have to be cleaned more than a different color.

Plus, TFV12 Prince Tanks are very much known for leaking on the first fill. No one really knows why this happens, but it tends to only happen when filled for the first time. Simply carry an old towel or paper towel to be prepared for this leakage and things will be fine.

Overall, this kit is very durable and reliable that will be there for the buyer vaping for a long time to come according to reviews and statements.
