The Innokin Smart Box, come in a choice of five striking colours.

The kit comprises of two main components, the atomiser Isub Tank and the Smart box.

The Smartbox.
At first site it looks like any other vape mod. But the Smartbox is a little different.
It features a chip that detects the resistance of your coil and automatically selects a wattage for you, offering a straight forward, simple vape.
The Smartbox measuring in at on 71mm tall, is quite dinky compared to along of kits on the market.


The Smart boxes minimalistic design has no screen or control buttons, apart from the fire button, and LED indicator' and is perfect for the new vapor,looking for a more simple Vaping experience.


The top of the device is chrome plated measuring 23.1mm x 41.1mm,  and features a brass spring loaded 510 connection.



The base of the device has matching chrome plating, with the threaded battery screw on battery cap, that has a nice level of knarling around the edge to allow easy access to the battery compartment,



The body of the device is wrapped in a seemless colour coded alloy casing, that has an almost metallic Flec finish. 

The button located on the leading edge of the device, finished in brushed alloy, with a cut out of the Innokin logo, has a nice positive click to it, and lights up, acting as a battery indicator.


When the battery is fully charged it Innokin logo LED will glow green,at half power yellow, and red when charging is required.


The device can be turned on and off, by pressing the fire button three times. In quick succession. It is always recommend that the device is powered off, when not in use, or being carried in your pocket or bag.

At the bottom of the leading edge below the fire button, is the wattage indicator, which illuminates to indicate the coil type installed.


White light - DTL ( Direct to lung) : with the 0.5ohm coil
Green Light - MTL (Mouth to Lung) with the 1.2ohm Coil

ISub Tank.
The kit includes the impressive iSub Tank, with the 0.5ohm coil pre-installed, along with two spare Coils.


The 0.5ohm coil head offers a nice airy vape full of flavour, and if you like plenty of vapour this is the coil for you. It produces a nice amount of clouds!
The 1.2ohm coil is designed for lower wattage and a tighter draw. If you close the airflow down and use the supplied mouth to lung drip tip then you can get a mouth to lung draw that has a lot of flavour!
Simply installing the chosen coil, and the Smartbox will select the correct wattage, to get the best performance out of the coil.
The Subohm tank holds 2ml of juice, which is filled via the ports in the top of the tank, which are accessed by unscrewing the top section. Cleverly, when you unscrew the top cap to fill it up with juice, the spring loaded chimney section, pops up, closing off the juice holes, preventing you from ever flooding the Coils, with excess juice. 

The isub tank can easily be broken down into its component parts for maintence and cleaning, by simply unscrewing the the top section and removing the glass.


The isub tank is cleverly designed with a spill proof coil change system, which allows you to switch out the coil without getting juice on your hands,  you simply unscrew the airflow control ring, and pull out the coil from the base of the tank.


The isub Coils feature an effective spit back guard, the wire mesh, prevents eLiquid spitting up the mouth piece.


The isub tank features fully adjustable air-flow to suit all styles of Vaping. It is adjusted by rotating the airflow control ring at the base of the tank.


How does it perform?
I was quite impressed with the Innokin Smart box, it performed surprisingly well, delivering a nice satisfying amount of vapor,  and it delivered it consistently through out the Vape. 


With the preset wattages, the battery seemed the last for ages and will easily last you all day.

I found that the 1.2ohm mouth to lung coil, produced an impressive amount of flavour, to satisfy even the flavours chasers amounts us.

The Innokin Smartbox kit is so simple and easy to use. Simply fill the iSub V tank, insert your battery and vape away, the chip does the rest by selecting the correct power to suit the coil.
Plus changing the coil is super easy, literally unscrew the base, and pull the coil out, without having to ever get juice on your hands.
Size wise, it's nice and compact, slipping perfectly into your pocket..
The battery is really easy to change out, no tools required, and because it's interchangeable, you can take a spare charged battery with you. (Always remember to carry your spare batteries in a secure plastic battery box, and never carry loose in your pocket or bag)
It's great to see that they included a decent tank, with the isub tank, so many starter kits are let down by the inclusion of a poor performing tank, which can spoil the whole Vaping experience.
As an experienced Vapor, I found it frustrating that you can’t manually adjust the power on the Smartbox, the chip automatically does it for you based on the resistance of your coil.
That’s the whole point of this mod and while it’s great for newer vapers, the more experienced users might want to fine tune their vape a little more.
It was disappointing that there is no ability to charge via USB port on the Smartbox,  which means that as well as purchasing an 18650 battery, you will have to also purchase an external mains charger, which will dramatically increase the cost of the complete set up.
On a starter kit, I think Innokin would have been better off, by installing an internal battery, with USB charging capability.
The Smartbox doesn’t support temperature control whereas a lot of Innokin’s latest devices plus others in the same price bracket do.
Again, Innokin are aiming this at vapers who want simplicity so if temp control is your thing this obviously isn’t the mod for you.
The Innokin Smartbox is a great little kit and with its varying coil options, one that will cater for new vapers and more seasoned vapers alike.
The Isub tank performs really well. And will defiantly help satisfy new vapors, looking to make the switch off Cigarettes.
The Smartbox is designed for the newer Vapor, looking for a kit that is simple to use, were they won't have to mess around setting wattages etc, and making sure they have the right coil.
I will defiantly be recommended the Innokin Smartbox, to anyone looking to make the switch over to Vaping.
