SMOKTech X Cube Ultra 220W TC BOX MOD Overview
Just one short year after SmokTech released the X Cube II comes the much anticipated X Cube Ultra - A powerful 220W Temperature Control Box Mod that’s filled to the brim with features galore.
The X Cube Ultra presents an attractive Zinc Alloy chassis (10% smaller than X Cube II) and stands at 94mm tall and 55mm wide. This dual 18650 device (batteries not included) features a threaded 510 connection, a top facing OLED screen (20% brighter than X Cube II), two regulatory buttons, a sliding magnetic door, a dedicated firing bar that blends into the device and a beautiful, fully programmable color-changing LED. These beautiful cosmetic features provide an original, yet high-tech experience that’s completely customizable to meet your specific vaping needs.
Inside the X Cube you’ll find the newly added X3 chip providing a smart charging management module. This new module accurately balances battery charge and discharge, effectively prolonging the battery’s lifecycle. SmokTech’s hallmark firmware allows the user to choose from 5 different draw effects (Min, Soft, Normal, Hard, Max). Each of these effects has a pre-programmed ramp-up time that can be used to decrease or increase how fast the device reaches the desired wattage/temperature.
Haptic Feedback (internal vibration) is a feature normally found in cell phones and game controllers. The X Cube Ultra now utilizes this technology, allowing the user to program specific vibrations for specific functions. Now the device will vibrate when you push the fire button, letting you know with a reassuring buzz that the device is getting power. Also included with this latest X Cube release is Bluetooth 4.0. Now your X Cube Ultra can update the latest firmware without having to be plugged into a computer. Simply activate the bluetooth function on your phone, pair the device to your phone and begin downloading. That’s it. SmokTech updated their mobile app for a more intuitive user experience. Each setting provided by the X Cube Ultra can be changed, altered, turned on/off in the latest version of SmokTech’s mobile app. If you prefer the traditional method of updating the device’s firmware, a MicroUSB port can be found on the bottom of the device and can be used for both charging and firmware upgrades.
SmokTech’s latest X Cube Ultra is clearly ahead of the game when it comes to technological advancements. If you’re looking for a unique, high-powered, fully-customizable, Bluetooth capable, mobile friendly dual 18650 device, the X Cube Ultra is the only way to go.

Smok’s new addition to the growing X-Cube platform provides a refreshing look into the best state-of-the-art technology implemented in 2016.
The X-Cube Ultra is a powerful 220W Temperature Control Box Mod that has significantly decreased in size when compared to the previous X-Cube models. When placed in a lineup with the X-Cube Mini, the X-Cube II and the original X-Cube, the 220W Ultra is almost identical to the X-Cube Mini in size, while offering a large screen that’s almost 2x larger and 20% brighter than the Mini.
The X-Cube Ultra is a dual 18650 box mod that’s constructed out of Zinc Alloy and Stainless Steel. On top of the X-Cube, you’ll find a Stainless threaded 510 connection that houses a responsive spring loaded contact pin. Right next to the contact is a large OLED screen display and two regulatory buttons. On the side of the device is Smok’s trademark firing bar with LED display and a powerful magnetic battery door that houses the two 18650 batteries. At the very bottom of the Ultra you’ll find a MicroUSB port for charging the device and upgrading its firmware, as well as some battery venting holes.
Five clicks of the fire bar powers the device on, and immediately you’re greeted with the current firmware version, followed by Smok’s logo. Displayed on the home screen is the current wattage, battery power, current draw mode, a puff counter, resistance meter and voltage meter. Three clicks of the fire bar will take you into the menu, which is where you can turn on/off Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, alter the draw strength, modify the vibration settings, change the sidebar LED light color, reset the puff counter or power the device off.
At first glance, the X-Cube Ultra might not seem all that different from the X-Cube II or the X-Cube Mini. However, many of the most drastic changes that went into creating the X-Cube Ultra happened internally and not externally. Smoktech completely redesigned their mobile app, which is now offered for free on any mobile App Store. The re-vamped “Smart BEC” app communicates wirelessly with the X-Cube Ultra via Bluetooth 4.0.
This new update uses OTA technology, allowing the user to upgrade the device’s firmware effortlessly and wirelessly, removing the need for any chords or cables. If you do not own a smartphone or any Bluetooth enabled device, you can still use a MicroUSB cable to install any future firmware upgrades.
