Smok has been in the vaping devices market for some time now and has managed to keep vapers enthralled with each one of its new launches. However, with its latest launch — the Smok I-Priv — the company has managed to turn even its most staunch critics into ardent admirers. If someone told you a few years ago that you would one day have a vaping device that would take voice commands from you, would you have believed it? We wouldn’t.

However, Smok has managed to do the unthinkable with its new AI-enabled vape mod. The Smok I-Priv is the first vape mod starter kit that responds to voice command. Most of you may already be familiar with this feature. It is, thus, that we have decided to do a comprehensive review of this vape mod, where we will dig deep and focus on all the handy features that the Smok I-Priv comes equipped with.

Build Quality

The first thing you will notice about the Smok I-Priv is that its design draws significantly from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Smok I-Priv has a futuristic design and feels very powerful to hold. However, the body of the device has quite a busy overlay. The USB port sits nicely tucked at the base, which also features an LED torch. Like every other Priv products, the firebar finds a place on the side. Users can find the battery door at the back of the device.

The batteries sit nicely here. The packaging also includes a sleeve for the 18650 cells. The top of the screen features the company name, and the back has an I-priv logo. All in all, it can be said with certainty that the new Smok I-Priv has an impressive design. It feels sturdy in hand and looks like it is built to last.

TFV 12 Prince Tank Vapor Quality

The Smok I-Priv comes equipped with a TFV 12 Prince tank atomizer, which is, without a doubt, one of the best atomizers currently available in the market. This new tank comes equipped with two coil heads that use a strip build and mesh. The packaging includes two strips: V12 Prince Strip (pre-installed) and v12 Prince Mesh (part of the kit).

The V12 Prince Strip features tiny holes, and the V12 Prince Mesh is the standard mesh coil that most ohm tanks feature. While both the V12 Prince Strip and V12 Prince Mesh offer resistance of 0.15 ohm, the V12 Prince Strip is designed to be used between 40 and 100 watts, and the V12 Prince Mesh is intended to be used between 40 watts and 80 watts. Since both of these coils have a large heating area, they produce fantastic flavor. Moreover, they also produce significantly denser vapor than most other coil heads. It is, thus, that the Smok I-Priv delivers a powerful vaping experience.

Battery Life

The back of the Smok I-Priv features a standard magnetic door that opens to reveal the slot for two batteries. The device supports 21700, 20700, and 18650 batteries. It is reasonably easy to remove and place back the cells in the socket. The design is such that you won’t be worried about damaging the wrapping while doing so. The battery charges quickly and lasts long. Thus, you won’t feel the need to charge the battery again and again.

Voice Command

Smok I-Priv uses AI technology and, thus, recognizes voice commands. The device does not recognize as many commands as your phone but is a step forward in the right direction. Users can activate the voice command feature on this vaping device by merely saying, “Hello I-Priv.”

The Smok I-Priv supports 16 voice commands in total. These 16 commands include several essential voice commands that all vapers need, such as wattage mode, power off, power up, power down, lock device, unlock the device, change light settings, change screen color, etc. While the voice command feature is not as refined as we would want it to be, there is no denying that it is a supremely cool feature that will attract a lot of vapers.

Final Words

While there is no denying that its impressive design and voice command feature makes the SMOK I-Priv Kit stand out in a sea of vape kits, there is a lot more to this device than just its design and the voice command feature. This mod kit will impress you with its flavor and vapor production. Battery life is pretty amazing too. Made from sturdy material, this is a kit that is built to last. The company needs to work a little more on the voice command feature. However, even with its minor flaws, this is a vape kit worth your money.
