I have now had the pleasure to review the SMOK Mag Grip Starter Kit and a couple other SMOK products this year, such as the SMOK Species Starter Kit and the ever-popular SMOK Novo. I think SMOK is popular with the vaping community because of the variety that they offer. No matter what sort of device you’re looking for, SMOK will have something to suit your needs. Recently, I was sent a SMOK Mag Baby Starter Kit for the purpose of this review. Like the SMOK Mag Grip, this smaller kit has a lot to offer. But when I say small, this kit is small. It’s light, portable, and still delivers a SMOK-quality vaping experience.
The Design of the SMOK Mag Baby Kit
If you haven’t seen the original SMOK Mag mod or the newer SMOK Mag Grip, then you won’t recognize this baby version as a predecessor to the line of Mags. I was pretty thrilled when I got my hands on this, because I love the gun-like design. Functionality holds more importance, but let’s talk about looks for a minute.
Pictured above is the green version of the SMOK Mag Baby Kit. When I unboxed this little guy, I had no idea just how small it was going to be. It’s surprisingly little. Although this is a sized down version, SMOK manages to still embody a magnum gun design. It has a 0.96-inch OLED screen, a comfortable firing button like a trigger, and venting holes along the body of the mod to prevent overheating. SMOK offers this kit in nine fun colors.
Inside the Kit:
- x1 SMOK Mag Baby 50W TC 1600 mAh Box Mod
- x1 SMOK TFV12 Baby Prince Tank
- x1 V8 Baby Q2 0.6 ohm Coil Head (Preinstalled)
- x1 V8 Baby M2 0.25 ohm Coil Head
- USB Charging Cable
- Replacement Parts and Glass
- User Manual
The Specifics of the SMOK Mag Baby Kit
First of all, before buying you should know this kit is a max 50W output kit. People seeking 100W and above only, this isn’t the kit for you. Also, if you’re set against the idea of internal battery mods, you won’t appreciate that the Mag Baby has an internal 1600mAh battery. That means that this mag kit does not have that cool little feature of pushing the battery compartment out like a gun clip or magazine as the other mag models do. However, the whole purpose of this kit is to deliver vapers a compact and convenient on-the-go device. With that in mind, SMOK pretty much nailed this one. This is the perfect little kit if you don’t plan to vape above 50W.
And don’t fret, if you like to switch it up and vape in TC mode. The SMOK Mag Baby mod allows for TC with Ti, Ni, and SS coil materials.
The SMOK TVF12 Baby Prince Tank
The SMOK Mag Baby Kit comes with the baby version of the popular SMOK TFV12 Prince. It has a 4.5ml capacity and the same looks as the full-size Prince tanks. The difference is obviously the size and output. The tank is quite small, but thanks to the pyrex bubble glass you don’t have to refill as often. The TFV12 Prince Baby has a stainless steel chassis that is durable and light. The airflow slots are on the bottom base of the tank, while the filling system is SMOK’s popular hinged (push to open) top fill.
The kit includes the 0.6-ohm SMOK V8 Baby Q2 coil, a dual coil that works from 20-50W of power. You also get the V8 Baby M2 0.25-ohm coil head for use from 25-45W.
Vaping with the SMOK Mag Baby Kit
Although the kit is small, it’s able to output up to 50W. The vapor production is what you would expect from a kit this small. You’ll see some clouds, but nothing like what you’ll get out of a higher power mod and a tank with a larger airflow. However, the airflow on the TFV12 Baby Prince works well for the size. The only con with the TFV12 Baby Prince is the noise. It’s not the loudest tank you’ll find out there, but if you’re hoping for a tank that isn’t noisy, then you might have a small complaint here.
Both coils included in the kit provide some clean flavor, and like other SMOK coil systems, these should last anywhere from 1-2 weeks depending on your vaping frequency. I have yet to notice a drop off in flavor for either coil and I’ve been using the Mag Baby for a solid week and a half.
What About the Vaping Modes?
The TC mode works well for the size of the kit, but it’s nothing to go writing home about. In my personal opinion, though the option is nice, this kit works best using standard power mode. I did try the TC with a stainless steel coil, as well as a titanium coil, and had no issues. Nice flavor, fine performance. But again, nothing spectacular.
I found that the SMOK Mag Baby Kit performs best at 35-40W. If you vape it at the max of 50W, you will drain your battery life quicker, The charge on the Mag Baby can last a full day, unless you are a heavier vaper.
Want a Small Kit? Try Out the SMOK Mag Baby
SMOK doesn’t usually disappoint me, and they haven’t with the Mag Baby Kit. It’s easy to use, the menu screen is pretty standard to the Mag series, and the flavor, even at these low wattages, is pure. If you’re searching for a small kit that you can take anywhere, but prefer a mod and tank instead of a pod mod, the SMOK Mag Baby Kit should be at the top of that list.
