Innovation in coil design is a significant aspect of SMOK’s product development, especially with its sub-ohm tanks.

The brand’s coils are designed to maximize flavor and vapor production, reflecting SMOK’s commitment to enhancing the overall quality of the vaping experience.

This focus on coil technology allows for a richer and more nuanced enjoyment of e-liquids.

SMOK has had some QC issues in the past with its coils – both on its pod vapes and its sub ohm tanks – but it seems to have gotten over this now.

It’s latest SMOK TFV 18 sub-ohm vape tank delivers exceptional flavor and cloud output and, based on our testing, its coils are also very consistent and reliable too.

SMOK used to make a lot of vape mods and tanks but as the pod vape format, and to a lesser extent, disposable vapes, became more popular, it has transitioned over to focussing, for the most part, on compact, easy to use pod systems.

The RPM series blends the compact nature of pod vapes with the power and functionality of a vape mod.

They’re still AIO (all in one) vape devices but they’ll output at much higher wattages, like a traditional vape mod and tank.

This makes them a great choice if you prefer using High VG vape juices.

Some of the notable product lines from SMOK include:

  • RPM Series: Known for its precision, power, and ease of use, the Alien series is popular among vapers who appreciate detailed control over their vaping settings.
  • Nord Series: Combining a sleek design with a versatile pod system, the Nord series is well-received by both newcomers and experienced vapers for its balance of simplicity and performance.
  • NOVO Series: The Morph series showcases SMOK’s technological advancements, featuring touch-screen interfaces and advanced control systems, appealing to those seeking the latest in vaping technology.

SMOK Coils

If you’re using SMOK vapes, you need to know about its coils and what the best types are for your particular model.

Muddying the water somewhat is the fact that SMOK makes a range of coil options for each of its most popular pod vapes. Luckily for you, we have dedicated guides focused on the best SMOK coils.
