Quick Look at Smok X-Priv with TFV12 Prince Kit

The Smok X-Priv 225W TC stater kit comes with the new X-Priv mod and the workhorse TFV12 Prince sub-ohm tank.

The X-Priv has the a lot same features as most recent two battery TC box mods and echoes a familiar menu system that is seen on other Smok color screen devices but it has a more aesthetic, sleek appeal than the rest. 

On the face of the X-Priv is a HUGE, vibrant color screen covered by a curved glass that seems to take up most of the front side. The color menu can be matched to the color of the kit to tie the appearance together.

As with the screen, the fire bar is quite large, curved and blends right into the side of the mod. Triggering the bar gives a satisfying click.

Changing the settings is pretty easy using the fire bar and the up/down buttons that are tucked into the bottom corner.

A snake skin design adorns the battery door on the back, which is secured by four magnets. Removing the door reveals that the battery sled is wired for series but looks like it is parallel, which is strange but easy to use as both batteries will be aligned in the same direction. 

Every thing is flat and flush on the top and the spring loaded 510 pin is offset from the center. Due to the design curves of the mod, tanks with a diameter over 25mm will have some slight overhang.

This kit includes the workhorse of the Smok family the TFV12 Prince tank. This a pretty good tank that looks great and performs very well. 

The tip has a snake skin pattern that calls back to the battery cover and is also color matching with the paint. For extra grip there is knurling on the top and bottom but it doesn't take away from the overall appearance. 

Capacity of the tank is surprising with such a big coil, coming in at 5ml for standard glass and tremendous 8ml with the bubble glass. 

The dual bottom airflow slots let in a lot of air, which helps the tank produce some big, thick clouds. Flavor is also very saturated and right on target. 

The coil break in period is pretty short to non-existent thanks to some quality cotton.

Coils for this tank are available in a wide range of options and they are available pretty much every where, which is always a plus. Mesh coils are becoming available for this tank, which makes it even better.

Overall, this kit is great. This dual 18650 device is powerful and versatile, it is well built with no rattles and the fire bar is comfortable to trigger. Everything looks great from the smooth curves of the design to the huge, bright screen and matching, well performing sub-ohm tank.
