Looks and Feel
Ease Of Use
The Smok Stick x8 is the perfect combo for those looking for a huge cloud production without the bulkiness of a big box mod. This complete kit comes in under $40 and with the TFV8 X-Baby tank arguably one of the best tanks out there, this is an easy recommendation.
One of the major disadvantages to getting a smaller or more compact mod is that there’s always some sort of compromise when it comes to performance and battery life. Luckily, Smok is creating new waves with the release of their newest pen type device: the Smok Stick X8 vape pen. Boasting a whopping battery life of 3000mAh, besting even some larger box mods, the new Stick X8 promises a no holds barred vaping experience with the use of its X-Baby tank and Smok’s signature M2 coils. Is it the device to beat? Let’s find out.

Aesthetics, Build Quality & Overall Feel
Housed in a sleek and svelte zinc alloy chassis, the Stick X8 bleeds the essence of quality. The device is rock solid with no rattle whatsoever when handled. The Stick X8 is remarkably portable as well, standing at a height 85mm with a maximum total diameter of 24.5mm. It easily fits in your pocket or any small bag or purse.
The top of the mod features a spring loaded 510 connection plated with 24k gold to ensure the best connection is made between the mod and the X-Baby tank. The included tank sits perfectly flush with the mod leaving no gap whatsoever. An internal chip also guarantees a safe vaping experience with safety features such as protection against short circuits, and low resistance protection.
Operation & Performance
The Smok Stick X8 comes bundled with the X-Baby tank. The tank has a total e-liquid capacity of 4ml and utilizes Smok’s signature swivel top fill mechanism letting you easily top up the e-liquid in the tank. The mouthpiece utilizes a wide bore Delrin drip tip ensuring that your lips stay nice, cool, and comfy when vaping, insulating them from the heat generated by the coils inside the tank.
Speaking of coils, the kit includes a 0.25 ohm M2 coil which gives the perfect balance between flavor and vapor production, while the 0.13-ohm coil offers a wider airflow and better cloud production which is a good option for the cloud chasers out there. Another improvement which the X-Baby Tank has over its predecessors is the top airflow design which eliminates any chances of e-liquid leaking out.
The 3000mAh internal battery is nothing to scoff at and easily gets many vapers through an entire day of light to medium vaping. Heavy or chain vapers might experience the need to recharge mid-day but topping off the battery is painless and quick thanks to the micro USB port located towards the bottom of the mod. The Stick X8 is easy to use as well thanks to its single button operation. An LED light outlines the firing button and acts as an indicator of when the battery needs charging.
The Smok Stick X8 is definitely a compelling option for beginners and enthusiasts alike who are looking to experience all the benefits of vaping with a portable and easy to maintain pen style vape without any of the disadvantages normally associated with compact mods. It’s tiny, it performs, and it also manages to look good while doing so.
