In-Depth SMOK OSUB 40W Kit Review:
The SMOK OSUB 40W Kit is a temperature control mini box mod that has a maximum output wattage of 50W in Temp Control mode and 40W in regular power mode. It has temp control in Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel and it does have TCR functions. It fires down to 0.1 to 3.0 ohms in wattage mode and .06 to 3.0 ohms in TC mode. The temperature range is 200 – 600°F/100 – 315°C. It has a pretty simple menu system just like all other box mod products from SMOK but it’s a bit simple and not as complicated as some of the other more advanced box mods out there.
Design and Feature
The firing bar of the SMOK OSUB is pretty similar to H Priv, X-cube and SMOK Quantum. Which you can press the entire sidebar to fire the device. Keep in my mind that I have found it very sensitive and fires accidentally numerous times. The micro USB port of the SMOK OSUB is hidden in the side panel covered by a magnetic plate which you can take off easily. It has a 2Amp charging like you see in smartphones nowadays, so it does charge pretty quickly but no pass-through feature meaning it can not be vaped while charging. The 1350mAh battery that comes with this mini box mod will not be able to last for a day but the same can be said for any vape mod in this class and size.
The chassis in made of zinc alloy and has a brush type finish which is a fingerprint magnet that leaves an almost greasy feel if the oils in your hand transfers to the mod.
At the top of this device, we have 510 threading and adjustable pin. The front side of the SMOK OSUB 40W features an OLED screen and two function buttons. The OLED screen is small but clear and easy to read. The function buttons are rounded and small which can be hard to press especially to those who have big fingers but other than that it’s pretty well-built buttons. There is that rattle sound when brushing your finger over the buttons but nothing when giving the mod a hard shake.
Available in black, white, red, and black/gold finish makes this mod stunning and very sexy looking if you ask me! The SMOK OSUB 40W kit measures only 22mm by 35mm by 70mm with a weight of 116g. Very well-built and the design is just deep GORGEOUS!
Helmet Mini Tank
The Helmet Mini tank that comes in this mini box mod is much taller than the original Helmet tank. But smaller in diameter – 22mm to be exact. It has a wide-bore slope 510 delrin drip tip so you can interchange it with your fave delrin mouthpiece. The Helmet Mini sub-ohm tank has a safety top lock design which you must press and twist to dissemble and pour to fill its 2ml tank capacity. The sub-ohm tank has two coils included 0.4-ohm coil reading about 20 to 45W and 1.0-ohm reading about 15 to 35W. The top airflow of this tank is not similar to ordinary sub-ohm tanks, it can be adjusted by 90 degrees and the threading of both the airflow and top lid are smooth and easy; no issues about it.
When I first used the Helmet Mini with its pre-installed coil it has that metallic type flavor and has a lot of spit back. But in order to diminish those issues, just insert the airflow restraining ring which is a small O-ring that is color orange included in your box kit. That ring will reduce the amount of airflow that enters the air tube and avoids that odd taste and spit back. So make sure you installed that o-ring prior to vaping, to experience that out of this world flavor and performance. For me, it is a CON for they did not pre-installed it on their coils. So keep in mind to read the instruction manual first before vaping this device.
The thing I don’t like about the SMOK OSUB 40W kit is its firing bar. It’s very sensitive and fires accidentally numerous times. Although, there is a locking function which is activated by clicking the firing bar 5 times in quick succession. For me, it’s not enough I wish there is an individual button to lock/unlock the firing feature but again that is just me being picky.
Maybe it’s not a big deal for some vapers but it’s worth mentioning that the brush type finish of this mod creates a fingerprint magnet. But only restricted to the black/gold and silver color, other color designs has matte finish so no fingerprint issue at all. Also, there’s no upgrade capability and no pass-through feature for this mod.
The overall design of this box mod is elegant and sexy. It is great in size and the weight is good, not too heavy but enough to make you feel that high-quality product that is on this mod. It can easily be hidden in the palm of your hand and slipping it in and out of your pocket is so easy.
I also like the feature that you can control the wattage and temp control of this mod very easy and useful.
