Smok Scar 18
The Smok Scar 18 is, according to the manufacturer, (quote) “Born for Performance”. Sounds good to us! Best we give it the once over and find out some more!
So, it’s a box mod and when you look at the power source you can see straight away where the performance Smok boasts about is coming from. Driven by 2 x 18650 batteries, you’re looking at a maximum power of 230W - the W clearly standing for ‘Wow’, there. With the latest IQ-X intelligent chipset onboard you’re looking at some serious horse power, not to mention efficiency and a more stable output.
Another great feature – certainly, if you’re a keen for a sub-ohm experience - is their new TFV9 tank, the latest in an ever-expanding range designed to keep the sub-ohm vaper happy. With a multiple temperature mode, you can regulate the flavour to suit your own taste by adjusting the TCR (temperature sufficient of resistance). It comes with 2 x T9 meshed 0.15ohm coils, each one featuring a large contact surface which means huge clouds and vapour achieved from less heat. Also worth noting, its compatibility with previous ‘Baby Beast’ type vape coils which is sure to please a few folk.
In terms of dimensions, the mod itself measures in at 88 x 54 x 30.6mm and weighs just under 134g. Then there’s the tank, 65g worth of stainless steel, a 2ml capacity (in the EU zone!) and 25.5 x 50mm dims. So, while it’s a box mod, it’s super easy to cart around. Designed ergonomically, it offers the vaper a comfy hold. Made of leather and zinc alloy, the Smok Scar 18’s impenetrable armour makes it both strong and easy on the eye, too.
When it comes to accidents like drops and spills, you’re home and dry with the Smok Scar 18 which is completely waterproof up to 1 metre deep for 30 minutes. It is also shockproof so those occasional ‘woops’ moments we all have needn’t be an issue. A child-proof top cap prevents any danger if it falls into the wrong hands; it also prevents any accidental juice spills.
Safety-wise, you’ve got lots of added protection for peace of mind. How about a short circuit mechanism, overheating prevention, and 8 seconds cut-out all built in? The Smok Scar also has an intelligent atomizer recognition and a puff monitoring system, plus you’ll receive a warning if and when your battery power is running low.
The real question is… which colour will you go for? The Smok Scar has so many on offer! Thirteen, in fact, so if you can’t find one to your liking in amidst such a wide array then perhaps this isn’t your box mod after all! The original eight ‘Fluid’ types - 7-colour, red, blue, gold, black/white, red wood, green wood, and black – were more recently joined by five additional options, black carbon, red, brown, blue and grey.
Out of the box you have your mod, a 2ml tank (EU only), 2 x v9 0.15ohm coils (1 installed in the mod), a USB charger cable and user manual.
