The SMOK QBOX Mini Mod
The Mini Mod craze continues with the SMOK QBOX. It’s about as small as they get for a device that is not an All-in-One. Measuring at 55 mm x 34 mm x 25 mm, it can be easily stored in your pocket or purse without any hassles. And because it weighs only 119 grams, it won’t weigh you down when you’re not using it.
But don’t let its size fool you. The SMOK QBOX has solid zinc alloy construction and can fire up to 50 watts. The QBOX can handle coils as low as 0.1 ohms or 0.06 in TC mode.
You’ll find a variety of colors such as black, silver, purple, gold and a multi-colored option. All kits include a matching colored TFV8 Baby Tank.
QBOX Kit Review
Details on the QBOX kit and TFV8 Baby Beast
The 0.96 inch OLED display is very large considering the small size of the device. Details and settings can easily be seen and you can review the wattage level, mode setting, amperage, circuit temperature (PCB), puff count, resistance and battery life meter.
You will find a firing button and two additional buttons located on the device. These buttons adjust the temperature and wattage settings as well as allow you to navigate the menu. There have been a few reports of the firing button sticking, but this seems to stop once the device is regularly used. Vaping411 did not encountered this problem during the review of the SMOK QBOX.
Temperature Control can be enabled through the mode setting. Options include Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel. There is also the option to enter TCR settings for specialty coils. You can adjust the Temperature Control from 200-600 F.
Users can adjust the hardness of the vape, change the contrast settings or enable stealth mode which turns off the display.
Unfortunately, the instruction booklet does not provide clear instructions on how to navigate the menu, but it’s not difficult to do and quickly mastered within minutes.
The device contains an enclosed 1600 mAh battery. It’s a quick charging battery which only requires two hours for a full recharge. Battery life varies depending on how often you vape and the wattage level you use. If you vape using the maximum wattage level of 50 watts, the SMOK QBOX can last about four hours before you need to recharge again. This may be an inconvenience as a primary mod, but it’s workable if a power source is readily available such as an outlet or a computer/laptop.
This QBOX is pass-through enabled, so you can vape and charge at the same time using the USB port on the bottom of the device.
TFV8 Baby Beast Tank
The kit includes a TFV8 Baby Beast tank that holds 3 ml of vape juice. For some reason, the EU version only has a 2 ml juice capacity. The tank has a 22 mm diameter with stainless steel construction, and it comes with two V8 Baby-M2 dual coils rated at 0.25 ohms.
This TFV8 Baby Beast is a top fill tank and you can add juice exactly the same as you would in the standard sized TFV8. Adjustable airflow holes are at the bottom of the tank and you can adjust the pull by turning the lower ring.
The vapor production is excellent, mainly due to the redesigned airflow configuration. Air easily enters through the adjustable slots on the bottom and out through the mouthpiece via the air chamber.
There is also an RBA option for the TFV8 Baby Beast, but it’s not included in the kit.
