The style and design of the Smok Vape Pen 22 are very simple. It doesn’t have a LED display screen or any adjustment buttons. It has a fire button on the front which can also turn the mod on or off by pressing the button 5 times. The fire button has a LED indicator around it that lets you know how much battery power is left on the device.

It will usually blink 4 times each time you take a puff and will blink fast 15 times when the battery voltage is lower than 3.3 volts which means it is time to charge it. There is a micro USB port on the back of the device for battery charging as the battery is not removable, which has a capacity of 1650 mah.

The battery capacity is fairly large for a mod of this size as most vape pens on the same category usually only has 1000 mah or lower. As an all in one vaporizer, you can’t use any other atomizer on this mod as it has a unified body design.

The coil head is directly screwed on the top of the mod and the glass tank is attached to the main body which is held by the top cap that is screwed to the coil head. Surprisingly enough, even though the design is very simple, there are no leaking problems with the tank as it is tightly sealed with an o ring on the main body.

However, due to the fact that the top cap is screwed on top of the coil head and the coil head is also screwed on the top of the body, if you didn’t screw the coil head on the body tightly enough and you are going to refill the tank, when you unscrew the top cap, the coil head might stick to the top cap instead of the body which will leak all the remaining juice in the tank.

That is the only design flaw on this device so keep that in mind if you decide to purchase one. The body is primarily made of stainless steel and it is available in 6 different color options. You can get it in black, silver, red, blue, gold and rainbow.

As all Smok products, the Vape Pen 22 also have multiple automatic protections such as 8 seconds fire cut off, low resistance, short-circuit and low voltage protection.

The Smok Vape Pen 22 comes with 2 coil heads which have a resistance of 0.3 ohm. These coil heads are built with dual nichrome coils inside which can produce a very smooth flavor and vapor production. The Vape Pen 22 has dual airflow holes on the side of the body but they are not adjustable.

The holes are fairly large and will give you an airy drag every time which is perfect for vapor production but if you want a tight and restrictive lung hit, this mod might not be for you. Smok is also offering a mesh coil head for the Vape Pen 22 which has a resistance of 0.15 ohm. The mesh coil head will be able to produce more vapor and intense flavor due to the even distribution of heat and e liquid.

Versatility

The Smok Vape Pen 22 is a very simple all in one vaporizer. It is not a variable mod and its output mode is direct power so it will fire at its maximum output when fully charged and will go down as the battery drains.

The airflow is not adjustable so you will only get an airy drag every time and if you are a fan of tight and restrictive lung hits, the Vape Pen 22 is not for you. As an all in one vaporizer, you won’t be able to use any other atomizers on this mod and sadly, Smok didn’t include an extra spare glass for your tank.

Portability

Portability

The Smok Vape Pen 22 is a vape pen so it is very sleek and compact. It is only 110 mm in height, 22 mm in diameter and 90 grams in weight.

It is a perfect grab and go device and as long as you have access to a USB powered port, you can charge it anywhere. Its micro USB port also supports pass-through mode so you can enjoy your vape time while charging.
