SMOK R40 mod
SMOK has come back to basics. Why? Because this mod look kind of square and kind of old school, especially if you compare with other products from SMOK as Osub, G-Priv and similar. You can get this mod in 4 different colors: Black, red, silver or light blue.
It’s a super small 40W TC box mod. It has 1 amp or 2 amp charging you definitely can charge it faster. Approximately it should take from 1-1.5h to charge it fully. It has 1900mAh battery – likely it has lipo battery as 18650 can’t fit in the mod.
Mod has bottom charging which might not be too handy, but bottoms and screen are made quality.
- VW or TC mode
- Timeout for screen
- Puff counter
- Single and dual coil type (Ti/SS/Ni)
- Power on/off
- Resistance adjustment
- TC overheat (Soft/Normal/Hard)
Micro TFV Basic Tank Review
We think that this mod was not designed to pass EU regulations, as tank capacity is higher than 2ml (2.8ml) and it doesn’t have child protection. Probably it could be design before EU regulations or they only want to enter markets outside the EU.
To test the tank we took 1.2ohm coil together with proper E-liquid from Vista Vapors (you coupon code VISTATEN to get 10% OFF). We started with 20W and airflow wide open. I have to admit – it was not pleasant. It was not close to MTL hit. We tried to adjust airflow but result was the same.
Then we decided to try with 0.6ohm coil. We also adjusted wattage to 35. And finally we got pleasant, warm vape but without any significant clouds. Then we increased wattage to 42 and it was the sweet spot. Vapor must more thick and flavor didn’t lose anywhere.
Pros and Cons
|Vapor and flavor||Tank capacity|
|Small size||Bottom USB charging|
|Built-in 1900mAh battery||MTL|
Long story short ’ Summary
If we compare this kit with other kits from SMOK – it’s seems somehow old school. But it doesn’t mean that kit is not working properly. You can vape it without any significant problems and enjoy the vapor and flavor (excl. MTL).
Price is affordable and you will not spend too much money for it. But somehow, we don’t know how 1900mAh battery can last for whole day, as sometimes we stuck with 26000mAh battery.
This tank is not made to pass EU regulations in regards to tank capacity (2.8ml) and child protection. But maybe it’s not a bad thing, as you get higher tank capacity and fill it with more E-juice.
