Using the RPM80 Pro

They call it a "pod mod" and that feels about right, it's a bit too chunky to be a proper pod. But for the convenience of being able to use some of the 10,475,128 spare 18650 batteries I have around is really nice. It means this little beauty fits into my daily vaping really nicely.

Super easy to fill

Smok have learned from a few missteps in the past and made the RPM80 and the RPM80 Pro super easy to fill. In the box you get two pods; one is for the RPM coils and the other is for the newer, higher wattage, RGC coils and both have the same easy fill method.

The Coils available

There are actually 9 coils available for the RPM80 / RPM80 Pro, including an RBA deck for those who feel like their pod mod is just too simple to use. But we've narrowed it down a little to keep things simple.


Solid build quality

Seven color options

Large color screen for wattage and battery meter Two pods (one for each coil) includedGood pod     capacity (5 mL)

Easy to use and fill (can be refilled without   removing pod)

Clear pods allow juice monitoringAdjustable         airflow on the RGC pods

Pods are held in firmly

Two coil options included

Tons of other coils available for both MTL and DL      (including RBA decks)

Good flavor from coils

Good life from the 0.4-ohm coil

Good battery life with the 0.4-ohm coils (or any of    the MTL coils)

Takes 18650 batteries

Fast charging (1.39 amps) that’s listed correctly 

Fully adjustable output

Supports pass-through vaping


- Bad life from the 0.17-ohm coils

- Low battery life on the 0.17-ohm coils (they require   higher wattage)

- Some condensation under the pods

- A little chunkier than some other pod devices

The Verdict

This is the pod mod for us! The RPM80 Pro is all things to all pods!

We really do love this, it's a great all-rounder that can handle everything. If you love nic salts this is superb! They even run at 80w in the RGC Pod if you're really feeling nutty. High VG will run pretty nicely (keep it 80/20 or below for best results) and you can throw some High PG in there and with a bit of fiddling, it will run nicely. AND it runs on 18650? C'mon.

Definitely a winner.
