SMOK H-PRIV Kit review


Designed to be small, sleek yet immensely powerful thanks to its max output of 220 watts, the H-PRIV is a new kit from SMOK featuring the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC box mod and the SMOK Micro TFV4, a smaller version of the outstanding TFV4 that was first found as part of the SMOK Micro One Kit.

It has been built to fit ergonomically in hand, with a large red trigger style fire button at the side that is easy to locate and operate. A clear OLED screen is located at the top of the unit, and a magnetic battery door cover is used, combined with a solid zinc alloy construction to make for a small, robust and very powerful unit. Let’s see how the H-PRIV stacks up…

The SMOK H-PRIV Kit consists of the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC box mod, and the SMOK Micro TFV4 sub ohm tank. That’s not all that is included in the kit however, as the kit is full of extras!

Alongside the SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC and the Micro TFV4 you also get a 0.3ohm Micro Fused Clapton core (pre installed with the Micro TFV4), a 0.25ohm Micro Stainless Steel Dual Core, a replacement XL glass tank section, tank extension adaptor, micro USB cable, user manual and finally a SMOK vape band. There’s an awesome amount of kit there, and easily enough to get you started off. You will however need to ensure you have two paired 18650 batteries that have a minimum continuous discharge rating of 25A.

The SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC is the latest box mod from SMOK, following on from the X Cube series. Design wise, it does bear a resemblance to the X Cube, but it is smaller and features a large trigger style fire button, with thankfully no gimmicky LED this time around! It’s the perfect size to fit in your hand, and it has a clear OLED screen at the top of the unit along with the up and down buttons, and the spring loaded 510 connector. There is a new sliding magnetic battery cover found at the bottom of the unit, with 24K gold plated contacts, and this works like a dream.

Looks wise, I think it’s a big improvement on the bulky and unwieldy SMOK X Cube. The finish is far more attractive, and it’s also a more ergonomic device too, whilst being relatively light and very well made.

The OLED screen at the top of the unit features information such as current power output, battery level, resistance, puffs, voltage output and the current power boost setting. The power boost setting is a cool little feature that allows you to customize the ramp up time of your coil slightly, from soft, normal, hard, minimum and maximum. One odd thing I did find was a slight, but noticeable delay when pushing the power button to firing itself, even with the power boost setting at maximum!

There are tons of features present within the mod, accessible and adjustable through the deep menu system, which although feature rich can be a little confusing to use at first. You need to press the power button three times quickly then wait five seconds above the option you wish to select. You are presented with four options initially, mode enables you to switch between wattage, temperature control and memory mode followed by puffs which enables you to set a puff limit if you wish. You can also switch quickly between TC and VW by pressing power and up simultaneously, and holding down both up and down locks the device. The settings menu allows a huge wealth of customization, right down to setting the individual TCR for your preferred temperature control wire if you so wish. Finally, the final option is power which allows you to turn the mod on and off.

As with the name, you have 220W at your disposal, and a fully functional TC mode supporting the most popular wires such as Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel. A user customizable TCR is present to input the TCR of specific wires, and you can save a massive 16 power presents into the memory of the chip! You are able to fire resistances down to 0.1ohm in wattage mode and 0.06ohm in temperature control.

Safety features are built into the device. Alongside intelligent atomiser recognition, there is also a puff monitoring system, 12 second cut off, short circuit protection, overheating protection and low battery warning.


Included alongside the SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC is the SMOK TFV4 Micro. This is a micro version of the best selling TFV4 tank, manufactured from stainless steel with a Pyrex glass tank section and has a 2.5ml capacity as standard, or 3.5ml when you use the tank extension kit included within the box. You are able to fully strip down the Micro TFV4 for cleaning.

The swivel hinge and fill system that made the TFV4 such an easy tank to fill is present here. Simply slide the top cap open to reveal the filling ports, and it audibly clicks shut when you are done. There’s also a double layered drip tip present that protects against heat.

Airflow is adjusted via a smooth AFC ring at the base of the tank, whereby you can open up or close down four separate airflow holes. For such a small tank there is a ton of airflow present here, this is a very airy tank indeed.

You have two coils included with the Micro TFV4 tank. The Micro CLP2 Coil Core comes pre installed with the tank, and this is a 0.3ohm dual fused Clapton core with a recommended wattage range of 30-60w. Included as a spare in the kit is the Micro STC2 Coil Core, which is a 0.25ohm Stainless Steel dual core with a recommended wattage range of 30-60w. The Micro STC2 Coil Core can also be used in Temperature Control mode with the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC. Other coils including an RBA coil are available to purchase separately.


I’ve already come across the Micro TFV4 tank, when I reviewed the SMOK Micro One kit, and the Micro TFV4 tank found here is exactly the same and supplied with the same coils. This is a very good little tank, and I prefer to run both the Micro CLP2 coil and Micro STC2 coils at the 50W mark. This gives me a lovely, warm vape with plenty of flavour, and coupled with the large airflow vapour production is outstanding. These micro coils may be small but they have absolutely no issues at all wicking high VG and thick juices, with no hint of a dry hit in sight.

Battery life is very good, however this is also dependent on the batteries that you choose to use, as the H-PRIV 220W TC does not come supplied with batteries. Running the Micro TFV4 with the Micro CLP2 at 50W with paired Sony VTC4’s easily gets me through a full day of heavy use, at higher wattages the battery life is shortened, however it still gives very decent lifespan.

You can even pair the new SMOK TFV8 with the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC, if you really want to take advantage of the H-PRIV’s high wattage capabilities. As the H-PRIV is able to output up to 220W and fire resistances down to 0.1ohm in wattage mode, it’s perfectly compatible with SMOK’s latest cloud machine.


It’s a small kit, with big performance. The SMOK H-PRIV Kit is able to mix it with the best of them, being able to fire resistances down to 0.1ohm and output up to 220W, but it also offers great battery life too from the dual 18650 batteries, making it an ideal choice to take away on holiday or even to use as your main mod.

Not only is it powerful, it has great temperature control functionality too, which will please TC fans, and it’s a great little unit in hand that looks good and also offers pretty much everything you could need!
