SMOK was founded nearly a decade and a half ago in 2010 by Shenzhen IVPS Technology Co. Ltd. The goal of the brand, right from the start and to this day, was to research and develop the best possible e-cigarettes and vaping technologies that combine great experiences with minimal to no health issues.
And, by and large, SMOK has not only accomplished this but has become one of the best and most popular vape brands in the world. Boasting over 80 million fans and customers from more than 50 countries across the globe, SMOK is leading the industry with a lot of its technological advances too.
SMOK’s headquarters are located in the Shenzhen Bay Tech-Eco Park, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, China. You can easily contact the brand in various ways from all around the world, however, if you just visit SMOK’s contacts page. You can also order any of SMOK’s products from the brand’s online store or you can find SMOK vapes in countless vape stores everywhere vapes are sold.
Over the years SMOK has accomplished numerous innovations and has not only managed to consistently create some of the best vapes on the market but has also pushed the whole industry forward in many ways. Here are some of the key SMOK features to consider that help the brand stand out from its competition:
- Excellent compatibility – SMOK vapes are traditionally compatible with a very wide range of tanks and atomizers from other brands which allows for a lot of flexibility and personalization
- Adjustable wattage and temperature settings – ideal for customizing your vaping experience to your liking
- User-friendly interface and simple to use – SMOK vapes with both touch screens and pressable buttons are all made to be very intuitive and easy to use, great for new vaping enthusiasts.
- Great battery life – both the battery life and recharge rate of SMOK vapes are famously very good and efficient. This makes these devices great for use on the road or out of a home or office setting.
- Convenient, ergonomic, and stylish designs – more than just looks, the great, slick, and stylish designs of most SMOK vapes make them great for both steal vaping and for showing off to your social circle.
SMOK Vape Price & Series
This classic brand offers lots of different series and models, all in various price ranges, and with different features and characteristics. There are also lots of devices that don’t really fit in a single group or series and we certainly can’t list every single item in SMOK’s vast catalog in just one short article.
All that’s to say that SMOK offers plenty of choices to both the new and experienced vaping customers. Naturally, this can be a bit confusing and disorienting if you’re new to the vaping scene, as bountiful choice often is. So, here are a few of SMOK’s most renowned and highest-quality series, their price ranges, notable models, and reviews:
G-Priv SMOK Series Price & Detail ($44.99 – $99.99)
SMOK’s G-Priv series is famous for its sub-ohm draw. As such, these vapes are often preferred for DL vaping (direct-to-lungs) by ex-smokers and vaping fans that prioritize the strength of the hit over its flavor. That being said, a G-Priv model can also be used for MTL vaping (mouth-to-lungs) if you just get more coils for it.
The regular G-Priv and the Pro are the two most famous models of this series with the main difference between them being the battery – one has an internal battery while the other has a 18650 lithium-ion battery.
- G-Priv Pro Pod – $44.99
- G-Priv Pod – $46.99
- G-Priv4 Kit – $99.99
The spiritual successor to SMOK’s famous Alien line, G-Priv is well-deserving of its fame. Looks-wise, the G-Priv series has a very classic design which a lot of experienced vapers love.
These models also come with a Fire bar rather than a simple on/off button which has also proven popular. The airflow is adjustable, the pod is refillable, the battery is durable and fast to charge, and the overall quality is very impressive and reliable.
Nord SMOK Series Price & Detail ($5.09 – $48.90)
A series full of very versatile and reliable vapes, the SMOK Nord also brings some innovative features to the SMOK family, alongside the equally famous Novo series. Nord vapes utilize different kinds of coil heads that make these devices great for both DL and MTL vaping, for example.
These models are also incredibly ergonomic, making them ideal for vaping on the go or stealth vaping. The Nord is notably heavier than other vapes with similar capacities – basically twice the weight of SMOK Novo, for example – but that weight comes with a 2x better battery capacity.
- Nord AIO 19 – $22.02
- Nord Pro – $29.99
- Nord X – $39.99
- Nord 50W – $42.99
- Nord 5 – $48.90
Virtually all SMOK Nord models are highly praised and rightly so. This series is essentially the “big brother” of the Novo series we’ll discuss below and, as such, the SMOK Nord does everything it’s supposed to expertly well, and for fair prices too.
Novo SMOK Series Price & Detail ($11.04 – $39.99)
Another very famous series, the SMOK Novo packs an astonishing punch in a very tiny body. Two times lighter than not just the Nord but most other vape models, series, and brands of similar capacity, the Novo is essentially as small and light as a classic cigarette lighter. Inside that small thing is a 1.2Ω coil and 2ml of e-liquid.
This small size means fewer puffs, of course, but Novo models are easily refillable – the filling hole isn’t huge, as you’d expect for such a small device but it’s very convenient to use with any standard dropper or bottle needle tips.
- Novo 2C Kit – $19.99
- Novo 2X Kit – $26.99
- Novo 3 – $32.99
- Novo 4 Kit – $39.99
- Novo 5 Kit – $39.99
Most vapes in this series consistently outperform vapes larger vapes and other famous models and brands. The biggest selling point of the SMOK Novo models, however, is the quality, durability, and longevity of these pods. The 450 mAh battery also behaves very well and lasts more than enough for most daily needs.
All that, together with the reasonable prices, makes the Novo series very well-deserving of its fame.
Best SMOK Flavors
SMOK vapes come in various flavors, not to mention that you can also always refill your e-cig with other off-brand flavors if you want to. Here are some of our favorites:
- Arctic Mint – if you want to feel like you’re cheating the system, SMOK’s Arctic Mint flavor will not only make your vaping experience awesome but it will leave you with a minty-fresh breath afterward.
- Hazelnut Coffee – this flavor has the exact taste you’d expect- a sweet and poignant combination of hazelnut and coffee that goes all too well with smoking as well as vaping.
- Sweet Aniseed – the sweet licorice taste of the Sweet Aniseed flavor can’t be understated. Like many of the other sweet flavors on this list and from SMOK, in general, the Sweet Aniseed can be too strong for some but is ideal for those who love sweet vapes.
- Blackcurrant – for a sweet and fruity vape, the Blackcurrant flavor is a very strong combination of grape-like taste, similar to that of a sugary pastry.
- Vanilla Custard – if you want your vapor to be not just sweet but rich, creamy, and luxurious with a soft and prolonged aftertaste, SMOK’s Vanilla Custard is one of the best choices you can make.
- Summer Berries – a great option for vape enthusiasts that have a sweet tooth, the Summer Berries flavor has a strong taste that nevertheless doesn’t distract from the feel of the vape, as well as a soft and pleasant aftertaste.
- Fireball – for those that love a bit of spiciness and cinnamon in their faves, and aren’t fans of overly sweet vapor, the SMOK Fireball is an ideal choice.

How long does a SMOK cartridge last?
SMOK offers many different cartridge types and sizes there isn’t a single number we can give here. Additionally, it also depends on how often you use it. Generally, most vape cartridges will last somewhere between 1 and 2 weeks.
As that’s not especially specific, however, the capacity of vaping cartridges is usually measured in puffs, i.e. how many puffs the cartridge can produce. Even that isn’t really an exact measurement, however, as the depth and length of each individual puff can also vary from person to person – lighter inhales mean more puffs and a longer lifespan.
How do you use a SMOK vape for the first time?
The first step of using a SMOK vape would be to fill it up with your e-liquid of choice. If you’ve just bought it pre-filled or you’re using a SMOK disposable, you won’t need to do this. After that, just press the Fire button on the device – the main on/off button. If you’re having trouble locating it, consult the vape’s instructions – every model is a bit different after all.
Lastly, just start inhaling. If this is your first time, you’d want to pace yourself. Start with a light and slow inhalation in your mouth – a slow inhale for about 4 to 6 seconds is usually enough. Don’t inhale directly in your lungs yet – that’s a valid way of vaping too but you might want to get the hang of the basics first – first inhale the vape into your mouth and then into the lungs, again – slowly.
After that, just exhale lightly and gently, take a deep breath, and follow up with a second inhale when you’re ready.
How long does it take for SMOK to charge?
Depending on the type of device and its model, SMOK vapes will have different batteries. Some get fully charged for as little as an hour, others can take anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. If you’re uncertain what’s the charging time in your case, you can consult with the device’s instructions.
Can I leave my SMOK charging overnight?
If you’re worried about overheating your vape device and getting into a fire accident – don’t be, leaving your SMOK charging overnight can’t lead to anything like that. That’s because your SMOK almost certainly has a failsafe that stops it from overheating (unless you’re using a really old and/or off-brand device).
It’s still not a good idea to do this, however, because your device will keep using a tiny trickle of electricity while it is plugged in so that it constantly stays at 100%. While, again, this can’t lead to any major accidents, it will wear down the device’s battery a fair bit, especially if you do that often.
How many times can you refill a SMOK pod?
An open system pod mod is generally intended to be refilled four to five times. This can vary depending on the type of device as well as how you’ve used it but it’s generally advisable to replace the pod rather than refill it after the fourth or fifth reuse.
Why does my SMOK vape hurt my throat?
If your throat aches after a hit from a SMOK vape, don’t fear – it likely isn’t anything serious nor is it due to a problem with the vape. A throat ache is most often caused by an overly strong hit or a throat hit. This happens either because the strength of the e-liquid was too high, i.e. there was too much nicotine in it, and/or because you inhaled too much too fast.
If that has happened to you, you can usually just wait for the sensation to pass away. You can also try drinking something soothing to alleviate the aching. After that, it’s advisable to get a lighter e-liquid with less nicotine in it as well as to start taking lighter puffs. Changing the device’s coils can also help in some cases.
