Zeus Smite Vaporizer — First Impressions

Design

A sleek and stylish box mod, the Zeus Smite comes with a stealthy black exterior with sliding panels. Edges are curved, which gives users a comfortable grip. There are also hidden compartments that add to the device’s charm. There is a “Z” shaped vent that lights up when the device is in use that looks great and all the parts fit perfectly. There’s nothing in this device that’s shoddily made and the overall design and attention to detail is tastefully done. Users of this device will get a feeling that it’s worth more than its cost.

Build Quality

The overall build quality of the Zeus Smite is very good. The main body is made from aluminum, with plastic sliding doors that conceal the heating chamber, as well as a small compartment where the mouthpiece is stored. The mouthpiece itself is made from heat-resistant silicone with a metal screen. The heating chamber is made of ceramic, which has an LED light, so users can see inside while filling it with herb. Everything is machined well and all parts fit together perfectly. All in all, it’s a device that looks like it could handle years of use without fail.

What’s in the Box

With every purchase of the Zeus Smite, users get one Zeus Smite vaporizer, one mouthpiece, one charger, one cleaning brush, one packing tool, two spare screens, and one instruction manual.

Vaping Experience With Zeus Smite Vaporizer

Usability

With just one button on the device, users will find that the Zeus Smite is extremely easy to use. The button turns the unit on and off and can also be used to change the temperature settings (like in the TC mods). Loading is easy, as well, thanks to the LED light that shows users the inside of the chamber while filling. Everything works simply, but effectively.

It’s rare that devices come ready to start vaping without the need to refer to the manual and the Zeus Smite is one of those units. This makes it a great starting device for beginners or as a capable, portable backup for advanced users.

Vapor Production and Performance

Battery life on the Zeus Smite is excellent, as well. It is able to last about three hours on a single charge, which is similar to other units that cost more. For a unit this small, three hours is very good. Devices in this price range are lucky to last an hour, which makes the Zeus Smite’s performance all the more impressive.

The heating chamber is made of ceramic, which is known for producing clean vapor. It is easy to fill and it does a great job heating herbs evenly. Three heat settings are available: 385°F, 399°F, and 414°F. The unit offers a great range of settings that can easily be changed with just one touch of a button. The lowest setting is for those who wish for thin vapor, while the max setting is great for users who want thick vapor.

It’s a good thing the Zeus Smite is easy to fill and quick to heat up, since the chamber is rather small. One will be lucky to get five hits out of a single filling. It’s also a shame there are no add-ons that allow the use of wax or oil concentrates, because the Zeus Smite looks capable enough to handle it.

Battery Life and Atomizers

The Zeus Smite may not score perfectly in all categories, but it performs well for what it is. Other vaporizers may be better in some categories, but the Zeus Smite beats them by being consistent in all fronts.

The Zeus Smite offers a durable, well-made, portable, great-performing device that’s easy to use and maintain. Battery life is great and users won’t find anything better in this price range. While the chamber could be a lot bigger, it is easy enough to fill and fast enough to heat up to make up for this weakness

For beginners or advanced users, the Zeus Smite is an under-the-radar vaporizer that more vapers should keep their eye on.

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.

    Can I simply say what a relief to uncover someone who actually knows what they are talking about
    online. You definitely understand how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More people have to read this and
    understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because
    you most certainly have the gift.
