Smok G-Priv 220W – Review

Smok G-Priv 220W – Review

The new G-Priv 220W from Smokshop combines usability with a sleek, well-formed design and I love it.

First of all, the screen on this is beautiful. It is crystal clear and very easy to use. The dimensions on the device are:

  • 85mm tall
  • 58.5 mm wide
  • 28mm thick
  • Weighs at 201g with battery around 294g

On First Glance

This is a fairly heavy device though it does feel nice and solid in the hands. It’s very well built and feels solid. The unit looks nice and flush with anything from 22 to 25, these seem to be the most popular atomisers for this product due to the look and the size. The display is also beautiful and includes a dual battery life indicator which adds a nice little touch. It also includes the time up in the left-hand corner, resistance, applied voltage, amperage and a puff counter all easily displayed.

The lock is on the right hand-side, clicking it three times will lock it and stop it from firing. Though, what makes this more unique is the button on the top left hand-side, click it once to go on stealth mode, meaning you can vape with the screen off. If you hold that button down, it locks it, that way you can’t make any accidental mistakes by changing the setting on the touch screen. Very smooth, very easy.

Where Are the Settings?

An arrow on the top left hand-side directs you to the settings, it includes puff counter, variable wattage mode (soft, normal and hard) and you’ll also find temperature control that comes with a drop down menu including:

  • Material
  • Preheat
  • Adj-TCR
  • Initial OHM

Last but not least you have the settings menu, here you’ll find screen timeout, time and date and factory reset. So simple. 

Adjusting power

All you have to do is touch the screen and hit right or left, left for lower, right for higher. Nice and simple, once you’re done, lock it in and there it will remain.

How Does It Vape?

It vapes great, it’s as good as any other variable wattage mod that Smok have produced.

Battery Life?

It’s good, the dual battery keeps it running very well considering it’s a touch screen. This is because of the lock and sleep feature, which is so important as it could save you hours of vaping.


Its bright, clean, vivid and simple. Even if you are new to vaping, you could easily get to grips with this device, that’s how intelligently laid out it is.

That’s all! It is a smart device that feels good in your hand and doesn’t overcomplicate things like other mods have done in the past.
