The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod Kit is the latest hybrid device to come out in 2020.
It boasts more power, better performance, and a nicer overall aesthetic compared to previous renditions. The new RPM 2 coils deliver fantastic flavor and cloud production.
Furthermore, SMOK has finally adapted USB-C quick charging. Keep reading to find out if this device does truly tick all the boxes.
SMOK is a leading vape manufacturer based out of China.
Both devices sold quite well and received decent reviews from popular YouTube vaping personalities. SMOK has arguably produced some of the best beginner vaping devices this year. Their attention to detail is paramount.
Furthermore, they offer excellent customer service worldwide.
The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod more so resembles the original RPM 40 rather than the RPM 80 Pro.
It’s also much bigger than previous renditions; measuring 108.5mm’s by 31mm’s by 28.5mm’s. The change in size is because it now contains a powerful 2000 mAh battery and can output up to an amazing 80 watts!
Furthermore, SMOK has finally incorporated USB-C charging into their devices. This is much quicker than MicroUSB.
The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod is made from good quality zinc alloy and feels quite durable.
The finish is far superior this time around. Furthermore, the new metallic coat and different color options look terrific. The front face features a large fire button that’s lightning-fast and two adjustment buttons.
All the standard information is displayed on a crystal clear 1.14″ inch OLED display screen.
The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod comes bundled with the usual preset modes and protections.
One neat function I’d like to highlight is the handy puff and battery remaining screen that you can access by clicking the fire button and right adjustment button. It displays the number of puffs you have left and a battery life percentage. Little improvements like this make a world of difference.
The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod Kit includes two types of cartridges and coil sets.
The original version and the brand new RPM 2. Both cartridges can hold a whopping 7ml of eliquid! The new coil is rated for 0.16ohm and vapes like a dream.
The wide airflow slots provide heaps of air and each puff is buttery smooth. This makes it perfect for DTL vaping, but not so much MTL.
You can always block one of the airholes to tighten the draw.
The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod is currently available to buy right now.
The best price I could find online was $31.88 USD from Eight Vape.
I think that’s a touch expensive considering the two previous models retailed for around $20 to $25 USD. In saying that I would still highly recommend picking one up if you have the cash to spare.
It’s a great device that performs superbly.
The SMOK RPM 2 80W Pod Mod comes in a variety of cool colors and patterns.
This includes prism gold, red, prism blue, bright black, prism rainbow, and also prism deep tarnish.
The overall aesthetic is very contemporary and I’d dare say it’s the best-looking RPM to be released so far.
What’s Included in the Kit?
- RPM 2 Device (integrated 2000mAh battery)
- 7mL RPM 2 Pod (RPM 2 Mesh 0.16 Ohm Coil Preinstalled)
- 7mL (RPM 2) RPM Pod (RPM Mesh 0.4 Ohm Coil Preinstalled)
- Type-C Cable
- User Manual
Overall, the SMOK RPM 2 does a great job. It provides a good amount of power, and great flavor/clouds. Every typical aspect you’d expect a SMOK vape to excel in, this vape does. The only downsides would be the price and the fact that there’s no adjustable airflow.
Other than that, the RPM 2 is a solid choice.
