Smok AL85 Alien Baby 85W Review
The Smok AL85 Alien Baby 85W TC is the perfect mod for those searching for a small footprint and lesser power needs but at the same time craving the “flavor” of the Smok Alien. Dubbed as the mini version of the famous Smok Alien 220W, the Smok AL85 Alien Baby 85W TC is a combination of an impressive miniaturized design with ample performance, user-friendly ergonomics, and compact sized factor.
Despite its size (71mm by 48mm by 27mm), the Alien Baby has a huge variety of features and specs to offer. This compact revolutionary system, designed to fit in the palm of your hand, fairly suits the portability needs of those who are always on the go.
The Smok Alien AL85 features a top-loaded battery cap that could accommodate a single high-amp 18650 removable battery. Removable ones could be advantageous to ensure that they are fresh over time and you can always keep some extra handy so you could go out even without charging.
Its power output also ranges between 1 watt and 85 watts, and it also boasts of a sophisticated temperature control ranging from 200oF (100oC) to 600oF (315oC) with native support for Ni200 (Pure Nickel), titanium, and stainless steel heating elements. It has a voltage range of between 0.35 and 8 volts. It is also capable of different Memory Modes, initial wattage boosts settings, and drawing effects.
Just like its larger sibling, it also has an OLED display that shows important information (such as wattage, mode, temperature, battery life, voltage, ohms, amps, board temperature, puffs, and puffs duration) within an easy-to-reach operational interface. Compared with most vapes, this has a better actual menu design, especially the big screen. It has also adapted the same Firing Panel that makes squeezing and gripping a lot easier and more comfortable compared with the usual small firing button.
The Smok Alien 85 Premium MOD Kit 85W TC will undeniably capture those who are searching for a handy yet fully featured mod with modest power needs. A starter kit version that includes the TFV8 Baby Beast Tank (with a 3mL juice capacity), an excellent airflow control design, and the famous hinged top-fill system utilized in all the TFV4, TFV8, and TFV12 subohms is also available. Of note, the included TFFV8 Baby Q2 Coil Heads on the starter kit allows you to attain an optimal vape at 50 to 55 watts, giving more power left over. Whether you are chasing for flavor or clouds, this mod will serve you well as it offers the best of both worlds.
You could also set the airflow from the base using dual controls. Smok featured a Delrin tip, extra-wide, and colored black, which will not only allow super thick clouds out but also reduce risk of burning your lips since Delrin serves as an insulator. SMOKTECH coils also offers special turbo design that draws air up, thus maximizing both vapor and flavor.
You can also choose from the eight different presets, which is a great feature if you frequently vape using different tanks and coils. This will save you precious minutes from adjusting the settings again.
The Smok Alien Baby could not only produce more than enough vapor but also deliver a pure juice taste that even bigger devices cannot achieve. This baby sure is one of the best devices for its size in the market today.
It is also relatively user friendly. Five fast clicks will turn the device on, while holding the fire bar for at least five seconds will turn it off. Aside from using the side bar for vaping or firing, it is also meant to lock or unlock the device. Three clicks will instantly bring you to the menu system, where you could set the mode, puffs, settings, and power.
The Smok Alien AL85 is priced at $59.95 on some online vape stores, but you can grab it for only $49.95 at www.smokly.com. There are 11 stunning colors to choose from, including Black, Blue, Black and Red Flakes, Silver, Green, Black and White Flakes, Red, Pink, Camouflage, Gold, and White.
