The X Force is the new all in one box mod kit from Smok that features a very minimalist design and simple operation. It has a new style of replaceable coil which is called the transverse coil and it is installed inside its seemingly pod-style tank. The tank can hold a large amount of e-liquid but unfortunately, its airflow is not adjustable. The X Force has a built-in battery which may be a deal breaker for some but for a simple device like this, I think it is alright.

One thing comes to mind when I first saw the Smok X Force, it looks very similar to pod style mods. It somehow looks like a hybrid between a typical Smok box mod and a pod-style vaporizer. It has the body of a normal box mod with the fire bar on the side but its tank works like a pod.

Its construction and design are very simple. It is primarily made of premium hard plastic and is available in 6 different color options such as black, red, white, yellow, blue and purple. It doesn’t have a display screen and what it only has is 5 small LED light indicators that are arranged vertically to show the battery life.

The X Force has a 2000 mah battery that is not removable and has a maximum power output of 45 watts. Below the fire bar is a micro USB port to charge the device but it doesn’t support firmware upgrade.

Although the X Force is seemingly a very simple device, it still has multiple protections such as short circuit protection, low voltage protection and 8-second cut-off to avoid the potential risks and dangers of using a vaporizer.

Now let’s talk about X Force’s tank or pod, whatever you might want to call it but like I said earlier, it works just like a pod. Unlike the normal tank atomizers, it is a one-piece construction which means the mouthpiece is built-in and its air hole is not adjustable.

The tank has an e-liquid capacity of 7 ml which is fairly large and the way to refill it is you just need to pull it out of the mod, pull out the rubber plug on the side of the tank and pour the e-liquid through the injection hole. The coil is replaceable too and all you have to do to take it out is pull it out from the silica gel on the bottom of the tank.

This new coil is the most interesting part of the X Force as it has a different construction layout from most coil heads on the market.

The Smok X force uses a new type of coil called the transverse coil. Its coil base uses an insulated ceramic that makes the coil’s internal temperature rise faster and it utilizes a gold-plated brass electrode that has a low resistance comparable to silver which is lower than an aluminum alloy or iron alloy, making it very power efficient with a very fast response time.

This means once you press the fire bar, the coil will heat up immediately without lag or delay giving you a very satisfying vape each press. This coil construction replicates what some advanced mods that use DNA or Gene chips are doing which is extremely amazing.

Unfortunately, the air hole is fixed so you can’t adjust it to be tighter or more open, however, the transverse coil is engineered to perform better than how it looks. The X Force has a vertical airflow system and with the help of the transverse coil’s layout, it eliminates juice burns and leaks by changing the airflow direction from a line shape to a serpentine shape which makes the air travel longer.

Doing this helps the X Force produce a massive and denser cloud while retaining the best flavor you can get on any e-liquid.

Versatility

Versatility

The Smok X Force is a very simple device offering a very simple but excellent vaping experience. There is nothing much you can do to change how it vapes as it doesn’t have an adjustable wattage and it doesn’t have any other vaping modes like temperature control.

The battery and drip tip is also not removable which can be a big con for some but the X Force is made with newbies in mind and for a beginner kit, the X Force performs very well.

Portability

Portability

The X Force is only 102.5 mm in height, 52 mm in width and 30.4 mm in thickness. It is a very portable device which is perfect when you are out and about.

It is also perfect when traveling since you don’t have to bring an extra set of batteries or a bulky battery charger, all you need is a micro USB cable or you can even use your phone charger.

Conclusion

The X Force kit is perfect for the smokers who want to quit and are looking for a very simple all in one device to satisfy their nicotine cravings. The X Force is somehow a perfect hybrid of a box mod and a pod style vaporizer which is the best of both worlds when it comes to a beginner vaping device. The technology Smok has developed on their new transverse coil is revolutionary in terms of design and purpose as it perfectly replicates the performance and vape quality you can only get on some advanced mods.
