The Smok H-Priv 220W TC kit is the latest dual-18650 powered device from Smok, the successor to the beasty X Cube II. The kit includes Smok’s new H-Priv 220w TC mod along with the TFV4 Micro tank; part of Smok’s Taste Furious range. If you’re not looking for a complete kit, the H-Priv mod is also sold separately, without the tank and spare coils.
The stainless steel constructed TFV4 Micro tank holds a capacity of 2.5ml, and has the same top filling system that the Taste Furious range is known for. The kit includes a pre installed micro fused Clapton core, which reads at 0.3Ω, and an additional micro stainless steel dual core, which reads at 0.25Ω.
The H-Priv’s wattage output ranges from 6W up to 220W, with the resistance range between 0.1 – 3.0 ohm (Ω) in wattage mode, and 0.06Ω – 3.0Ω in Temperature Control mode. The temperature range in TC mode (Ni200, Stainless Steel & Titanium) is between 200F – 600F, or 100C – 315C, depending on your preference.
Smok have included a few improvements and upgrades over the H-Priv’s predecessor. They’ve improved the battery installation system with a bottom slide door, instead of having it on the side like the X Cube II. Also instead of coiled springs to hold the batteries in place and complete the electrical connection, the H-Priv now features 24k gold plated positive and negative terminals on the door, meaning the wrapping and the outside of the batteries won’t degrade with use.
The H-Priv is smaller and sleeker, and with a max output of 220 watts, it’s more powerful than the X Cube II. It also features an improved ergonomic firing mechanism, and additionally Stainless Steel (SS) has been added to the Temperature Control mode.
There’s also a slight difference in the design of the TFV4 Micro tank, as it now includes a cone-shaped drip tip, along with a ‘V’ shaped airflow channel that alters the vape experience.
Like the others in SmokTech’s Taste Furious family, the TFV4 Micro has a top refill system making it easier to refill with your favourite eLiquid. The H-Priv is also 40 grams lighter than its predecessor, weighing in at just 190g.
To keep your batteries in top condition Smok have also redesigned the battery slot, and it instead uses contact points instead of a spring to hold the batteries in place. There’s also a spare pyrex glass sleeve should your TFV4 come into contact with the floor at high speed.
Unfortunately a downside is that Smok have still not allowed for pass-through charging, and the USB cable supplied can only be used for firmware upgrades.
Smok have also removed the Bluetooth function that came with the X Cube series, which allowed the device to be paired and controlled via a phone app.
The H-Priv kit would be suitable for vapers looking for a solid and long-lasting device, as its dual-18650 batteries can offer a huge amount of battery capacity. Due to its size, the H-Priv is better suited to home use, or while on a long journey when a large amount of battery is required.
Although it’s smaller and lighter than the X Cube II, the H-Priv is probably not ideal for slipping in one’s back pocket on a night out, as its bulkiness can mean it’s difficult to carry around.
