SMOK Alien Kit

The Alien is widely regarded as being one of the best starter kits that SMOK has ever created. We’re halfway through 2017 and it seems like it’s going to be hard to find a kit that will more popular than this beast. The Alien comes with the TFV8 Cloud Beast sub-ohm tank, giving you the ability to blow the sickest clouds imaginable. The Alien is available in a bunch of cool looking colors, so not only will be blowing clouds, you’ll look good doing it.

The H-PRIV is another worthy contender in the starter kit category from SMOK. Let me tell you, this company has been knocking it out of the park in the past couple years with their gorgeous, high-performance starter kits. This one also clocks in at 220W, giving you all the power you need for cloud chasing. While the Alien features a much more futuristic, sci-fi inspired look; the H-PRIV is more of a refined, classy-looking box mod. This one includes a state-of-the-art Micro TFV4 tank for the perfect balance between clouds and flavor.

Wismec Predator 228 Kit

It’s Alien vs. Predator, baby. The Predator 228 kit is Wismec’s answer to the SMOK Alien. It features a similar science fiction inspired design. The Predator is more than just stunning good looks, however. It also features some of the best performance specs on the market today. The included Elabo tank features tons of cool airflow adjustments, allowing you to tweak it to the perfect setting that meets your own unique needs.

Wismec ExoSkeleton Kit 

With the ExoSkeleton kit, Wismec is proving that it’s not just a one trick pony. This kit is another gorgeous masterpiece of design. The cool cage-like outer skeleton will be sure to turn heads wherever you go. There really is nothing out there that looks anything like it. This one is a triple-18650 powerhouse of a mod, so you know damn well that you’re gonna get some motherfuckin’ clouds out of this one. This kit includes the legendary Kage sub-ohm tank for increased performance.

The G-PRIV is another classically designed box mod kit from SMOK. It doesn’t have the high-tech futuristic feel that is currently popular; but rather features a sleek, high-end design aesthetic. If the whole outer space look doesn’t appeal to you, then the G-PRIV is right up your alley. This dual-18650 kit will also give you the TFV8 Baby Beast sub-ohm tank.

Innokin Cool Fire IV Apex Plus Kit

This beginner-friendly starter kit is designed to give you optimum performance in a simple, user-friendly package. The Cool Fire IV kit is powered by an internal battery, so there’s no need to worry about dealing with those annoying removable 18650 batteries. Just plug it in to charge it up and you’ll be ready to vape in no time. The iSub Apex tank features a respectable 3ml capacity and gives you decent clouds and flavor from a box mod that clocks in at 70W.

SMOK G150 Kit 

The G150 is one of the newer sub-ohm kits from SMOK. It features an insanely powerful internal battery, making it ideal for vapers who don’t want to deal with external batteries but still want a high performance kit. This one comes in some incredibly cool colors. My favorite by far is green. This one comes with a TFV8 Big Baby tank, so you get a little bit more e-juice capacity than most sub-ohm tanks out there today.
