For the past 9 months I have been happily vaping my SMOK Alien kit champagne addition. It is a feisty mod that provided 9 pleasant months of vaping.

It has come to the stage where the aesthetics of the Alien kit have started to suffer from wear and tear damage and seeing as I am a huge fan of these products I figured it was time to find myself something new.

I wanted something small, lighter weight, more streamlined so I could ninja vape in forbidden locations and so I searched for a stick like mod. That is when I discovered the SMOK Stick V8. From the pictures online it already seemed to match my desires. It was well rounded, seemed small and light, with a touch of elegance. I did not think I would be buying a cloud producing machine when I selected this mod but I wasn’t to fussed about that.

So thanks to amazon prime my delivery came the next day and I was quick to plug it in and charge it to full (have a little patients as vaping from the box is more disappointing when it runs out 20minutes later). So here are my initial thoughts:

SMOK Stick V8 Breakdown:

  • Reasonably light weight, although it has enough weight to feel like a valuable accessory.
  • Big baby tank is big baby beastly. Filling up this bad boy will cost half of your now restricted 10ml bottles which is a bit of a nightmare but that’s not the tanks fault #blamethetpd.
  • Stainless steel silver looks and feels solid – well made.
  • The clouds are insane!
  • The battery life is just under¬†1 day (not too shabby).
  • As with all other SMOK tanks this is a top re-fill slide mega action tank = really easy to fill.

As mentioned in a point above, I did not expect this to be a cloud machine but oh was I surprised by the vapour produced. Thanks to the big baby tank, the taste and vape quality of the cloud was immense. The battery must hit out around the 80w mark because it burns so well!
