SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC Touch Screen Kit fierce combination of power and cutting-edge technology provide an attractive kit that’s quite unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Inside the box, Smok includes the G-PRIV mod, battery safety caution card, warranty card, G-PRIV instruction manual, 2x Smok vape bands, extra o-rings and a spare gasket, micro USB cable for firmware upgrades, replacement glass, Smok’s 0.2 ohm V8-T6 sextuple atomizer head, and the TFV8 Big Baby Beast Sub-Ohm Tank.
Smok’s G-PRIV Mod is an slick 220W device that features a 2.4” high-strength toughened glass touch screen, standing at 85mm tall and 58.5mm wide. At the top of the device, the G-PRIV features a stainless threaded 510 connection and a spring loaded contact pin. On the side of the G-PRIV we’ve got Smok’s extra-clicky trademark firing bar, and right above it is the easy access lock-screen button that will put the screen to sleep. On the backside of the device is a nifty carbon fiber design as well as the G-PRIV logo, and Smok constructed some battery venting holes on the bottom as well as a microUSB port for firmware upgrades.
Built to last, the front of the G-PRIV features the large touch-screen display that’s already equipped with a screen-protector to prevent any kind of long term scratches or unnecessary damage. If you look on the bottom of the device, you’ll see a little notch that can be used to remove the magnetic battery door to gain access to the dual 18650 battery bay. The battery bay features 24k Gold plated terminals that increase the G-PRIV’s conductivity, lending to faster ramp up times and minimal voltage drop.
With the batteries properly installed, five clicks of the fire bar turns the device on, and you’ll immediately be greeted with Smok’s epic logo.
Right away we can see the current time in the upper-left corner, as well as the individual battery power levels on the right. In the center we have our current wattage settings, which can be increased or decreased incrementally by tapping to the right or left of the wattage numbers. Long pressing the arrows will cause the wattage to change rapidly. Directly below the wattage is the current vape mode, and below that you’ll see the puff counter. At the very bottom is the amperage, voltage and current resistance.
Going back will take you into the main menu, where you’ll see the G-PRIV Logo and the current date below it. Pushing VW mode will take you into the variable wattage settings. Here you can change your ramp up preferences, quickly alter your wattage with the slide bar, or slowly with the plus and minus symbols, and activate or deactivate these current settings. In TC Mode, we can change the temperature control settings to whichever TC coil we are currently using in our atomizer. You can also increase or decrease your pre-heat wattage, adjust the TCR settings to match your own custom Temperature Coefficient, manually input the coils starting resistance, or quickly activate TC mode.
The G-PRIV’s Puff counter keeps track of how many puffs you’ve already taken, and allows you to limit how much you vape each day by setting a custom “max puffs” number. This number can always be changed, and the puff counter can always be reset by using the reset puffs slider at the bottom. In the settings menu, you’ll find your Unique Identification number, as well as the model and firmware version. Here you can increase the screen timeout settings all the way up to 4 minutes, or decrease it as low as 10 seconds. This is also where you’ll go to enter the correct date and time settings for your G-PRIV device. The factory reset option will reset the mod back to its “out of the box” settings.
One of the cooler things about the G-Priv is its placement of the sleep-screen button and its easy access. You can still vape with the screen off, this simply just helps conserve battery life. Holding the sleep button down for two seconds will display a lock icon and lock the touch-screen function. When the screen is locked, touching the screen will not alter any of the settings on the device. However, the mod can still be fired when the screen is locked. To lock the fire bar, simply push the fire bar three times and the G-Priv Is completely locked. Pushing the fire bar 5 times will allow you to power the device off and you are good to go.
The Big Baby Beast is Smok’s Third addition to their growing TFV8 platform, providing the perfect balance between the massive Cloud Beast and the smaller Baby Beast sub-ohm tank. The Big Baby beast features a massive 5mL fill capacity and stands at 57mm tall and is 24.5mm wide. At the top of the tank is a removable 510 wide-bore delrin drip tip, and smok’s notorious TFV8 top-fill swivel cap that makes filling the tank fast and painless.
At the Base of the tank you’ll find a fixed dual adjustable airflow ring that offers total airflow control, and a stainless threaded 510 connection. Pre-installed inside the tank is the V8-X4 0.15 ohm Quad coil atomizer head that’s rated for best use between 30-70W. These vertical kanthal coils are wicked with pure organic cotton and feature four large wicking ports for fast saturation and rapid-paced wicking. All together, the V8-X4 head provides the perfect blend of flavor and cloud production thanks to its high-powered potential and excellent build quality.
Before you start using this kit, be sure to prime your coils before doing anything else. Priming the coil will eliminate any chances of getting a dry first vape that could potentially ruin your coil. To prime the coil, grab your favorite e-juice and being saturating the exposed cotton in the atomizer head. Once the cotton looks saturated, you can then re-assemble and fill the tank. Allow about 1-2 minutes for the e-juice to sit in the tank before taking that first vape.
Smok’s attractive G-PRIV Kit provides a beautiful look into the cutting edge of vape technology. Whether you’re looking for a powerful new kit that has all of the latest features and temperature control technology, a cloud chucking powerhouse or just wanna impress your friends. SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC Touch Screen Kit can handle it all.

Introducing a quick overview of Temperature Control Vaping. Are you tired of that horrible taste you get from a dry hit? Tired of burning the wick in your coil and having to replace it, and at the worst possible time too? Are you tired of vapes that are just too hot? If so, it sounds like Temperature Control Vaping might be right for you. Temperature Control Vaping seems to be the next step in harm reduction for nicotine users by creating a fool proof way of limiting the temperature of the coils preventing burnt wicks or dry hits or simply keeping it from getting hotter than you prefer. Here we will discuss this technology, what it is, and why we want it. We strong recommend to use reliable and authentic vape batteries with your Temperature Control Vape Device and Vape Kit: LG HG2 18650 LiMn 3000mAh Battery and Sony VTC4 18650 2100mAh 30A Battery What Is Temperature Control Vaping: The Temperature Control (TC) feature of your vaporizer allows you to pre-set a value in Celsius / Fahrenheit that your coil temperature will not exceed. When the TC feature detects that the coil hits your pre-set (temperature) value, it acts as a limiter and will adjust, restrict, or cut-off the power to the coil until the temperature falls below your pre-set temperature value. TC keeps your coil temperature at a fixed rate, no matter what your preferred vaping style is, whether it’s little inhales, big inhales, mouth to lung inhales, straight... Learn more
Welcome to Misthub's Guide to Variable Voltage / Variable Wattage Mods. While these devices were once rare and very costly, the rapid evolution of vaping has made these devices quite popular, widely available and very affordable. Today we will discuss what is a variable voltage / variable wattage device, how they work, and the various advantages and disadvantages of these devices. What Is A VV/VW Mod? A VV/VW Mod at it's simplest is a battery powered vaping device that uses circuitry to regulate its output power and allows adjustment of it's output power in two ways: 1. By adjusting the voltage. 2. By adjusting the wattage. Additionally these devices employ protection circuitry to provide a wide variety of safety features to protect the user and/or prevent damage to the device itself. The safety features of VV/VW Mods make them a fantastic device for new and veteran vapers alike. Today, there is a massive selection of these types of these devices. Their maximum output power and other features are just as varied. With so many choices in devices it's good to know they are all quite similar internally. These devices are controlled by a micro processor which is what allows for and controls the variable settings, safety features, and secondary features like displaying battery life, atomizer resistance, etc. The only significant internal differences are the microprocessor itself, whether it uses replaceable or internal batteries, and if those batteries are in a parallel or a series circuit. Battery placement determines if... Learn more
Overview of Ohms Law and Vape Safety Mechanical mods, high wattage regulated mods, rebuild-able dripping atomizers and rebuild-able tank atomizers are becoming extremely popular. Most experienced vapers quickly realize the cost savings of rebuilding and make simple RDA's / RBA's and RTA's part of their daily life. It's no surprise - for the cost of a pack of coils you could buy a year supply of kanthal wire and organic cotton - the building blocks of most vape coils built today. Additionally, self build coils in RDA's tend to produce a lot more vapor and superb flavor over traditional coils, but this post is not about that. This post is about vaping safely and what that means. Let's face it, a metal tube with a high voltage battery or a high wattage (think 150W) box mod with two is nothing to smirk at. You are putting that thing right next to your eyes, mouth and face and firing (activating) it. You WANT to be safe! Before building your first coil, it is highly recommended to buy an ohms meter. This is a device that will tell you the resistance of the coils on your atomizer. Armed with resistance (Ω) you will be able to easily figure out if your setup is safe. But first, what exactly is "safety" when it comes to mods and e-cigs? Easy, the batteries used today for most mechanical and box mods are either 18650 or 26650 series batteries. These batteries vary in Amps - amps... Learn more
Introduction to Variable Voltage vs. Variable Wattage for E-cigs There is a lot of confusion between variable voltage vs. variable wattage for e-cigs. Both variable voltage and variable wattage are technologies that control the power output delivered to your e-juice delivery device like atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer. If you are unfamiliar with different types of e-liquid delivery devices be sure to check out our Tutorial: Atomizer vs. Cartomizer vs. Clearomizer. Some people prefer variable voltage to variable wattage, and in most cases it boils down to skill level and the level of control you want when vaping. Although, variable voltage and variable wattage control power output of your battery, they achieve the same result in a different way. The choice between variable voltage and variable wattage comes into play if your tend to switch between different types, brands and models of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearmizers. As you know from our previous tutorials, different type, brands, and models come with different resistance levels of coils. To achieve desired power output while using a variable voltage battery you will need to know the resistance level of your e-juice delivery device. Using the Vaping Power Chart and the resistance level (in Ohms) you will need to cross-reference or calculate appropriate voltage to achieve desired power output or wattage. With variable wattage feature resistance level of a coil is calculated automatically by a microprocessor of electronic cigarette. There is no need to use Vaping Power Chart or do calculations by hand. However, it is... Learn more
Significance of Variable Voltage and Vaping Power Chart Modern electronic cigarettes come with many features and one of these features is variable voltage. Not every e-cigarette comes with option of variable voltage, some already come with preconfigured constant power output. These types of e-cigarette are simple to use and more suitable for beginners. They deliver predesigned power to model specific atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer. However, more advance users prefer an option of variable voltage which allows them to control power output to achieve ideal vapor production. Them main reason why you would choose a variable voltage electronic cigarette over constant power e-cigarette, is the variety of different types and brands of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearomizers on the market today. If you are unfamiliar with different types of e-juice delivery devices be sure to check out our Tutorial: Atomizer vs. Cartomizer vs. Clearomizer. Different types and brands of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearomizers all have one thing in common, they all have some type of heating coil which converts power delivered by your batter to heat. The heating coil can have different resistence level, which simply means that it requires different power levels to achieve ideal heating temperature. Consequently, variable voltage option allows you to set ideal power output depending on brand and model of atomizers, cartomizers, and clearomizers you are using. It is important to note that highest voltage is usually not ideal power setting and can lead to burning of e-juice or even risk of coil burnout. Therefore, always pay... Learn more
You might think that the electronic technology involved in vaping is similar to the electronics involved in a smartphone or a flashlight, and for the most part, you would be right. The basic principles are the same. But then you notice that the batteries we’re using are a little more stout than the AA’s in your TV remote. Then you might see a news report where someone sets his backpack on fire with a mod, and you wonder, how? How does this happen with vaping but not with your MP3 player? Here’s the thing: vaping requires power, and we don’t mean power like a portable Bluetooth speaker uses. We mean massive current. Vaping uses power like almost no other consumer electronic device, at a tremendous rate, meaning that there are serious risks. Newer devices have loads of safety features, but they can’t eliminate every possible way to abuse your gear. And that’s why we need to talk about safety. As it has been for many years, the vaper’s battery of choice is the 18650 cell. That’s a size measurement, 18mm diameter and 65mm long. The 18650 comes in a lot of different varieties with a lot of different performance ratings. And vaping requires the best. When you factor in weight, longevity, price, and the ability to handle huge amperage, the 18650 owns every other type of battery, which is why you see them bundled into almost every high-powered electrical device you can buy, from computers to power tools to...

What are the best batteries for mods? And what is the right battery to use in your mod? It's actually the most important questions someone can ask before vaping on a new device. All personal vaporizers utilize high discharge lithium batteries. These batteries are by far the most crucial part of your device. When handled properly they are quite safe but if mishandled can be dangerous (especially in a mechanical mod). Below you will find everything you need to select the best battery for mods as well as tips to keep it working in tip top condition for the duration of its lifespan. Size, Does it matter? Yes, Most mods will only fit the size battery it is intended to use and it is strongly recommended to use only the size specified for your device. In some cases multiple smaller batteries can be stacked to fit in a device. Battery stacking should be avoided. Stacking batteries increases the batteries voltage and can cause the batteries or the device to fail. Brand, Does it matter? Absolutely, using an authentic battery from a reputable brand will ensures your battery will operate safely and as intended within its rated specifications. Your safety matters, so we recommend the following brands: Sony, Efest, Samsung, and Orbtronic. Other reputable brands include MXJO, EH, MNKE, Panasonic, LG, and AW . Using low quality batteries runs the risk of damaging your device and potentially injuring you and others. A little extra money spent on quality batteries... Learn more
