I bought this in the red. It is more of a burgundy color and the tank has a shine that catches the light which makes the a very sharp looking mod. It is the first mod I bought. Love the simplicity of not having to set controls. Battery life is good, it can use juice a little quickly if you're really pulling hard on it. It has great flavor and produces great clouds. Feels wonderful in your hand, perfect size. Not too heavy. My only issue with it is the tank top. When you go to add juice it swings out but it is sometimes hard to close completely for some reason. Today I saw I need to change the gasket and they provided extras so hopefully it will solve the problem. Like that the batteries are removable, just take the other off the charger and pop it in no problem. Mine charge quickly. Super price for a mod and love the look and feel of it. Direct Vapor has the best prices and customer service is great. Perfect for your first mod.
I bought the Priv V8 to use as a backup. I have a Vaporesso Swag, but after I got the Priv in, its all I use. I use it with the air flow at about half open, which is unusual. It just does a great job without all the bells and whistles. I have read the reviews about all the problems but have not encountered them, no leaking, burnt coils, but I will say when I have a new coil in, I barely have the air flow open. This is your only way of adjusting this vape.
At first I had the same leaking problems but once I changed the seals its like night and day. Works perfectly and it's the prism version and my friends are all jealous.
I have always used the Istick because that's what I was used to.. Bought a SMOK "swag" starter kit and loved it!! My husbands mod broke so I bought this and gave him my swag.. mostly because he was used to a lower wattage. It leaks.. the battery cover constantly comes loose and the battery falls out. I didn't like it at all and use it to charge extra batteries now as hubby bought the SMOK S-PRIV 225W TC and I have my SWAG back, That said... I just bought theSMOK T-PRIV 220W TC Starter Kit and can't wait to get it!!!! I love the brand and love Direct Vapor.. just not this mod.
Love it, but would love it even more if it wouldn't leak so much. Now shopping for a replacement.
I got two of these back in early March. One for me (purple and black) and one for my spouse (black and red). About a week ago the back 2 threads stripped out on mine. My spouse's is still going strong. Mine is probably from constantly bumping it over at the table. It's the first vape I've had to have this problem even in all my clutsiness. All in all we love the Vapes, but I seem to need something a little more durable.
best one i bought so far
Gotta give it 5 stars!! My previous review stated that the e-juice leaked out in my pocket, however, I discovered that the bottom threading on my tank was loose. Took it apart, cleaned it, reassembled it and all is good. LOVIN' it!!
This thing is freakin' awesome, that's all I can say! Small yet very powerful, easy to use/setup/maintain. I wanted a good starter kit without all the bells & whistles and this is it. Arrived almost overnight from a Saturday order and have been enjoying it ever since.
The price is very reasonable and this device is definitely worth every penny!
The only "con" I can speak of is that the e-liquid will spill/leak out if you carry the device in your pocket with a full tank. It has to be kept in an upright position and/or with minimal liquid in the tank. Other than that, highly recommend this mod.
As stated above, SMOK has had some issues with quality and I'm afraid I got one of the not so great ones. The battery cover flap on the bottom springs open practically every time I set it down and the long plastic piece that you press to inhale is super loose. Aside from those issues, no complaints.
I bought 3 of these from direct vapor and all 3 broke in different way withing 2 months - also the replacement coils that I purchased were bad - Since SMOK has such great reviews elsewhere, wonder if direct vapor buys reject products?

We ABSOLUTELY DO NOT buy any form or refurbished, rejected, or clone products. We buy direct from all of our manufacturers including SMOK. SMOK, as of late, has had some issues with quality control and product availability. We have communicated that information to them and they are working on making improvements. We do thank you for your business and trust in DirectVapor. Vape on!
I purchased my first Smok Priv V8 in December, by late January the mod inexplicably stopped working. I contacted Direct Vapor, they were nice enough to send me a replacement, the new Priv V8 stopped working just last night.
Not happy, won't be buying Smok again.
I didn't realize it didn't come with the battery. It says it takes a 18650 battery ? and I don't even know where to find one so I'll have to wait awhile before actually trying it. I ordered this on a Thursday, chose the free 6-7 day shipping, and got it on the first Monday so I was pleasantly surprised!
Just got this last week and so far Im loving it, just ordered an RDA though cause I want a tad more out of my vaping experience, but couldn't say anything bad about this one. Ive used friends vapes in the past and this mod gave way more vapor production and taste to my juices than theres.
Worked fine when I first used it but after using up the two coils that came with it I burnt the next 3 fresh ones out of the packet. After many research it all came down to priming the coils properly. My juice were 20pg80vg so I also learnt to clean the coils every night and pop a fresh one in and allow to soak over night b4 using. I decided to get a spare sub ohm tank so that I can satiate my nicotine cravings without hanging out for the coils to be usable. It's a great mod but you gotta research what you are doing.
I use this guy on the go and the Alien 220 at home. Perfect combo. This device is simple, hits hard, and is well-built.
I think its good cuz no ones rate is under 3 so when i get money im going to buy it and before i wanted to buy pico but the end choose is this
This mod is great for starters. It's not too big and it has a good enough taste to start you off on your vaping hobby. I recommend this to anyone looking to begin, great price, great taste, and if you care enough about it, decent enough clouds.
Does this come with batteries??
So I burned about 7 coils when I first purchased this device. The instructions say to just let the coil soak for 10 minutes, wrong! And please don't contact them, they are in China and they will not be very helpful. You MUST prime the coil, and hold it sideways and get a few drops down the center of the coil so it soaks in. Make SURE you let it sit in the tank about 30 minutes to an hour before using a new coil. I found that I burned the coils easily with a freshly charged battery as the device products less power as the battery dies. Remove the battery from charger promptly once charging is complete.
I've found that holding the device upside down right after you vape helps with the spitting, as well as helping the coil absorb more juice. Make sure you try to wait at least one minute between vapes. Make sure you tighten the coil very very tightly into the bottom of the tank and as you twist it into the top part that it screws into the tank twist and push until it's very tight, but the coil has to be very tight into the bottom of the tank where it screws in. You can leave the cap open slightly for even more air causing it to produce more vapor and an even cooler vape. You may have to close the airflow as the battery is starting to die, you will definitely know when you're getting close because it may start to spit a little, I clean out the drip tip and the center hole frequently throughout the day with a twisted paper towel. Turning it upside down when using a new coil and between vapes helps a lot to greatly reduce and eliminate spitting. Make sure you have the airflow closed when filling the tank. Twist off the tank a little when changing the battery so the battery door will close easily, I've learned to use this product properly so now I love it. I get about 24 hours with one battery, that's why I bought two and a charger, the $10.00 takes about 3 hours or so, but that's not that long for me to wait.
Also, fill the tank when the juice is at the level of the white cotton to prevent burning the coil, I've burnt coils by not doing this because if you tilt it when you vape and it's low, some parts of the cotton won't have contact with juice burning the coil. Do not chain vape or you'll get more spitting. Now I can FINALLY use this product with the airflow fully open with ease, I only have to waste 7 coils to learn everything. Take short quick vapes when you first use a new coil. The M2 coil I'm sure is best (once you learn how to properly use them). Also, the technique of direct lung vaping is something that you need to practice, you have to pull some as you fill your lungs with vapor otherwise, it'll spit juice. After using this a cigarette just won't cut it.
I'm new to vaping so I have nothing to compare this to. I really like the design of this vape. Just wish the tank was bigger than 3ml. I don't know if you could put a bigger tank as I smoke all day long on this and I seem to have to refill the tank often. Would purchase again. So easy to use.
I bought this as a backup to my Smok Osub King (which is a freakin’ beast!) and was blown away by how simple it is to use and how easy it is to take with me. Just fill with my juice of choice and go! The tank may be small for some, but it preforms like a champ. Huge flavor and big clouds every time. Have had it for about 2 months and will be ordering another one cuz I love it that much. And Direct Vapor got it to me super fast! Highly recommend this kit and Direct vapor for all your vape needs!
This vape is the perfect size and strength for all day use at work. I use the alien 220 at home and the priv v8 at work.
I picked this vape up after breaking my alien 220. I'm not the biggest fan of the baby beast (I put my spare big baby beast on) but it's not a big issue. One charge can last all day while vaping fairly heavy. Very easy to use, one button that's just for firing, and small enough to fit inside my pocket. At the price, if I lost mine today, id defiantly buy another one the next day, with fast shipping. Would recommend to both new and experienced vapers. And yes, it makes decent, above average, clouds.
You won't find a better smok release at a better price, if you dont need all that wattage, this is a simple and easy to use kit.

Please Note: E-liquid Labeled Acetyl-Propionyl Free means that particular e-liquid DOES NOT contain acetyl propionyl
Acetyl Propionyl (pronounces Ah-see-tel Pro-pee-ih-nil) is typically used as a solvent for cellulose acetate, lacquers, paints, inks, and is also used as a starting agent for drugs, dyes, and pesticides. Most commonly, it is known as an artificial flavor, particularly within the vaping industry for e-liquids. It has a flavor and aroma profile that have been known to carry a particularly sweet, creamy, buttery, cheesy, and fruity flavor, with notes of caramel.
Currently there is some controversy surrounding the use of this substance in vapor products, though no concrete evidence has emerged to explicitly label it as harmful. There has been discussion of acetyl propionyl causing damage to the respiratory tract, and it has been known to harm the lungs in studies done on animals. For the time being, until further research emerges, we will carry e-liquid brands that contain acetyl propionyl, but we will identify them as such.
Visit our E-liquid Promise page HERE
Diacetyl (pronounced die-AS-i-til) is found naturally in low concentrations in foods such as butter and beer, and is a byproduct of fermentation. High exposure to diacetyl in production settings has been linked to rare respiratory illnesses such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Although the risks are much lower for vapers inhaling diacetyl-containing e-liquids, it is important to know the potential consequences of extended diacetyl inhalation. Studies have found that e-liquid containing diacetyl may cause harm to the respiratory system over time. As a result, DIRECTVAPOR will let you know which e-liquids are diacetyl-free so you can make informed decisions when selecting e-liquid.

We recommend that all newbies start off with 18mg. This is the most comparable level to a traditional cigarette and will provide the best results for those just making the switch for the first time. We offer many levels of nicotine, allowing you to truly customize your vaping experience.
The nicotine level will directly affect vaping exp and performance of your vaporizer or MOD. The term "throat hit" is commonly used to describe the intensity of your vape. As you experience with different nicotine levels, we suggest that you move slowly and do not make drastic jumps. Moving from 12mg to 18mg is recommend over jumping straight to 24mg.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call to speak to one of our friendly reps.
Propylene Glycol (PG):
Stronger flavor taste
Thinner e-liquid to aid in better wicking
Heavier throat hit
Vegetable Glycerin (VG):
VG has a naturally sweeter taste
Thicker e-liquid and larger vapor production
Lighter throat hit
