SMOK SMOK Vape Pen 22 reviews
Video Transcript: SMOK Vape Pen 22 Review by Zophie Vapes
Hey, what's up everyone? I am Zophie, and today we'll review, I'll show you guys later, but I wanted to mention that I did recently move, so that's why everything's kind of different, same crap, different room. And the main thing that is missing: All my vapes, all my vapes are gone. Why is that? The movers broke my shelf, that white shelf that you guys saw, they didn't even make it out of the house before they broke it. But luckily, that thing was only like $24 at Walmart on clearance, so no biggie, but still, still, I want my shelf. Everything's in boxes, I have no furniture in here. What you see is pretty much it, and then the rest is in boxes.
Alrighty guys, so for today, I'm gonna to be reviewing the SMOK Vape Pen 22, and why is it called the 22? 22 millimeters in diameter, height, 110, the battery inside is 1650 mAh battery, lasts a pretty long time actually, I think it's like five hours of vaping, takes about 2-2.5 hours for a full charge. But this thing, for a vape pen, it produces a lot of vapour, and the flavour is probably one of the best I've ever had out of just a basic pen. So yeah, however, however, it does have a major design flaw, which I will go over after I do the close-up, so that's next. Here, I have the SMOK Vape Pen 22. On the back of the box, it shows you what's inside of here, and there's also a little introduction. And on the side over here is the scratch-off authenticity code. Inside of the box is a user manual, a quality control pass, which is also the 90 day warranty card, and on the back of that, it shows you how to verify the product's authenticity, a USB cable for charging, protective rubber band for the glass, two of these 0.3 ohm dual-core coils, a glass tube for the tank and a drip tip. And here's the battery. The Vape Pen 22. Inside of here, there is a 1600 mAh internal battery, which is rechargeable through the USB port right here.
And if you're wondering where the rest of the tank is, there's the base. That is it right there. And on the sides, you can see that there's some slits, that's for airflow. Once you have this all charged up, select the coil, twist it in there. Take the glass, plop it on here. Select your favorite e-liquid, mine is Zophielicious Zest, which is from my juice line, but I love pineapples, and this is pineapple cream. And finally, pour that in there. And lastly, the drip tip. But to saturate the coil, you do want to wait about five minutes before you start vaping. Once you're ready to vape, click the fire button five times. So I'm not sure if you guys noticed, but when I click it five times, there's a little light around the button. And you can see it in here, too. And it blinks three times when you turn it off and when you turn it on.
Alrighty guys, so I am back and you wanna know about the design flaw, I'm guessing. So what is it? Well, this thing is top-filling. So if you try to unscrew the top and your coil is not in there as tight as you could get it, guess what's gonna happen? You're going to be removing the top portion, you're gonna be twisting it off, and all of a sudden, the coil comes out right with it. And then what happens? It floods. One of the ways to avoid that is to tighten that coil in, but even when I've tightened it in pretty hard, sometimes it still comes out when I try to fill it. So basically, you're kind of forced to vape it all the way down to the bottom before you take everything apart and you're still going to get a little bit of a mess, even that way. And then you're also risking getting a dry hit going this low. So right now, I am pretty much out. Excuse me, I gotta refill this. So let's see if it happens again. Watch, this one time, it won't. So here we go. Twisting it off. Okay, so it didn't happen this time, the coil is still in there and the juice isn't leaking out. I wasn't there tightening that coil in there, so this wouldn't happen, but I just gotta give you guys a heads-up, it's happened 8 out of 10 times.
Another con, the tank. The tank that you see on here, that is it, that is it-skies. You can't put any other attys on here, because the base of the tank is part of the tube, part of the pen, part of the battery, and it has the airflow built right into that portion, and it's also not adjustable. So it is what it is with the tank that is on here. The glass, the glass that is on here, if it breaks, guess what? No more vaping. Unless you can find replacement glass, which I have not been able to find, that's it, and they don't give you a spare glass tube. So I can see that being a problem, so that's another con. And the final con with this thing is the drip tip, it's not bad, however, it is permanent. You cannot remove it, which means you can't use one of your own. Zophie, with a design flaw like that, how do you still like this thing? Well, let me tell you. First of all, like I said before, flavour out of here is probably the best I've ever had have out of a vape pen, yeah, this is a sub-ohm vape pen, but still, for something this basic, flavour is pretty damn good. Pretty good vapour production, I would say, out of a vape pen. As I'm filming this, my battery died, and I'm wondering if this thing has pass-through charging.
So right now, I have this connected to my computer. Battery is completely dead. Let's see if it works. So I filled this thing about 12 times, and I will tell you guys, no leaking, no leaking at all. I've left it on its side overnight, I've left it in my purse overnight. No leaking, nothing at all, not even a single drop, so that is amazing. The only time it will leak is with that major design flaw. So when you're trying to take off the top and the coil comes out with it, it will leak out of the bottom airflow. If you're in the market for an idiot-proof vape, look no further. This thing is basic. It is very simple, easy to use. You don't need to read the instructions, there's just a fire button. You click it five times on, you click it five times off, and that's it. You just hold it when you're vaping and that's it. That is it. Very, very, very simple. And lastly, when it comes to pros, the price point, 24.99 on smoktech.com and that is the full retail price. So it's $25 for an entire vape kit. Except the only thing you're missing, of course, is going to be e-liquid, and that is it. That's it. That's very, very affordable.
And if you google it, you'll be able to find it even cheaper. I think FastTech has 'em for like 16 bucks with free worldwide shipping. So whether or not they sell authentics, I do not know. As far as I know, the major issue is it's shipping from China, so it's going to take a long time. Alrighty guys, so I am done here, and I will say I still like this thing, even though it has that major design flaw, but I still like it, because I just keep using it. So I'm not gonna be like, Ooh, I don't recommend it, 'cause a design flaw, because I keep using the damn thing. So because of that, I am going to give it like 3.5 out of 5 stars, but I do like it. I do like it. And for that price, I can deal with the flaw. So that is my review. And if you enjoyed it or kind of enjoyed it, please do subscribe or don't, it doesn't matter.
