If you love your techie MODs, a powerful vape, and a device that offers you great variety in how you vape, then take a look at this review of the mighty SMOK G-PRIV 220W TC Vape Starter Kit. This kit has everything you need to get started with this mod that supports a range of drawing effects, heating element materials, resistance, wattage, temperatures, and all the tech you love in touchscreen devices.


Specs and Features

The SMOK G-PRIV really does have it all for users who want a nice, compact, and powerful vaping experience with a great-looking performance mod. Optimal for e-juice, this SMOK is the ideal choice for someone looking to get into advanced mods.

Firing at 220 Watts of variable wattage power, this G-PRIV mod by SMOK features a touchscreen interface much like a smartphone. Shatterproof and large, this 2.4 inch OLED screen is a beauty and allows you to control everything about your G-PRIV mod — from wattage, temperature, and more.


The G-PRIV offers a great depth of temperature control options and this mod can fire any coil wire with precision and ease. One of the many great things about this mod is that there is a built-in lock button that sits above the fire bar, which allows the vapor to prevent misfire.

The weighed fire bar is a SMOK signature touch and is designed to look stealthy and sleek. This innovative starter kit also has one of the favorite tanks out there: the TFV8 Baby Beast sub ohm tank. Using the standard 510 threaded connection, this incredible tank has scaled down resistance but doesn’t sacrifice flavor — in fact, it has been known to produce the best cloud production and purest flavor.


You can actually use the SMOK G-PRIV mod to utilize SMOK’s flagship coil tech in three new V8 turbo coils — three distinct styles and power, you can use: V8-Q2 Dual Coil, V8-X4 Quad Coil, or V8-T8 Octuple Coil with ease. Also, feel free to use the V8 Baby RBA with Two-Post Deck.


The designed chip-set of this mod was designed expertly by SMOK and may remind you of the Alien vape mod. This chip-set allows you to operate this bad boy without any issues.

When it comes to powering the G-PRIV, SMOK has made the magnetized battery cover work well — while some people are still uncertain about SMOK’s usage of magnetic battery covers, the carbon fiber inlay of this mod’s magnetized cover works like a charm and is snug and a perfect fit when in hand. You can change out your batteries easier than ever.

The G-PRIV uses dual high-amp 18650 batteries. If you use the recommended batteries for this model (link at the end of this article), then the LG HE4 18650 2500mAh 35A dual-pack is the ideal choice. The LG HE4 gives you 2500mAh capacity with a continuous 20 Amp maximum discharge current and a 35A maximum discharge current.

The flat top design of these 18650 means better reliability — also, if you have other mods, these batteries are perfect for single or double 18650 devices.


Color Choices

There are three sweet color schemes to choose from:

  • Gold
  • Black / Red
  • Black / Silver
