The SMOK XPro M50 65W is another recently released box mod that aims to deliver high performance and variable settings at a price point that has hitherto been too low for many manufacturers. High performance box mods such as this offering from SMOK demand high quality components and firmware for them to deliver the charge that they do; yet with recent advances in vape technology signs are looking positive that box mods may be becoming more mainstream and affordable too. Whatever happen in the near future the good news for now is that the SMOK XPro M50 65W is a definite step in the right direction.
Using The SMOK XPro M50 65W
As far as box mods go this is a nice looking and feeling piece of hardware, with a decent finish that is only let down by the slightly irritating allen screws on the battery cover. Besides this it feels comfortable to handle and has a very nice balance too.
The battery is easy to install but not likely the easiest to wish to need to remove and replace especially often. This is due to the compartment being a lightly tighter than would be ideal, yet the device can charge via USB with the battery in-situ so this needn’t be a major worry.
The screen takes a few seconds to load and once running is easy enough to navigate around one you catch your bearing with the multiple menu system. Configuring to desired output and resistance is straightforward and the vape produced through a standard Kanger-tech Tank is breathtaking – excellent flavour, no delay and long languid plumes of vape. On a higher voltage – this device goes as high as 65 Watts – the difference was less noticeable but still an emphatically triumphant vape.
Versatile Yet Consistent Performer
When tried with a variety of tanks including at sub-ohm levels the performance was consistent and upon occasion extremely spectacular. This is a device that does lean itself towards modification with a variety of different components and I could see technical vapers having great fun trying to enhance the vape production as high as possible. It’s compatible with a huge range of batteries and tanks, and for the quality it delivers could be a real bargain if sourced at a price comparable to a quality vape pen/set.
