Build Quality and Design of Smok Scar-18

The Smok Scar-18 features powerful and portable, remaining fairly compact with its overall measurements being 88mm by 54mm by 30.6mm. A simple and minimalistic design covers this device as there are clicky and responsive single firing button and two adjustment buttons. The chassis is constructed of Zinc-Alloy and leather that provides durability and comfortable hand feels. The soft leather and hard mental on the body prevent the device from external intrusion. The entire construction is quite impressive and the machining is top-notch.


Functions and Features of Smok Scar-18

The Smok Scar-18 integrates with the intelligent onboard chipset IQ-X supporting accurate and stable power output, providing a decent flavor and vapor deliver-ability. It utilizes four firing modes to meet different vaping requirements, flavor and cloud. The stainless steel, nickel or titanium coils work well with the classic variable wattage or three separate temperature control modes.


The Smok Scar-18 is IP67 waterproof, which allows the device to withstand water immersion between 15 cm and 1 meter for 30 minutes with no worry. It also features dustproof and shockproof to prevent accidental drop and dust ingress. The self-adaptive power output functionality provides a stable and constant power output during vaping.


Vaping details like wattage, resistance, voltage and battery life can be seen from the  0.96" TFT display screen. The undertaking of the menu is fantastic. To avoid potential risks, the Smok Scar-18 provides multiple types of protections including Intelligent Atomizer Recognition/ Puff Monitoring System/ 8 Seconds Cut-off/ Short Circuit Protection/ Over-Heating Protection/ Low-Battery Warning.


Smok TFV9 Sub-Ohm Tank

The Smok Scar-18 is paired with the Smok TFV9 Sub-Ohm Tank, which is 28 mm in diameter and can fit up to 2ml of juice. It features a sliding top fill system offering a more convenient and clean refilling, preventing accidental top cap opening and leakage of juice. The locking mechanism of the top cap utilizes a lift-and-open method to prevent children from the tank. The chassis of the Smok TFV9 Sub-Ohm Tank come with superior 304 stainless steel.


That is a fantastic all-rounder for both efficiency and construction. The V9 mesh coil is made of Kanthal that features a large heating surface area to produce decent clouds and great flavor with shorter heat time. It comes with a V9 meshed coil, which boosts both flavor and vapor production with the suggested power wattage from 40 - 90 wattage. Adjustable bottom airflow enhanced vapor producing capabilities and your inhale style. The direct airflow can be adjusted by turning the ring at the base of the bank.


How to fill E-liquid:

Step 1: Hold the tank, lift and open the top cap.

Step 2: Add juice through the slot, be careful not to drip it into the airflow tube.

Step 3: Close the cap, let it stand for a few minutes to completely saturate the cotton.

Battery Performance and Charging

Powered by two external 18650 batteries, SCAR-18 can reach up to the maximum output of 230W maintaining top-tier efficiency through the vaping experience. It can be charged through a Micro-USB port for minimum downtime.


The Smok Scar-18 is a high powered and well-protected device with great flavor and vapor production. The Scar-18 remains quite compact and is an ideal kit for day-to-day sub-ohm vaping.

Q & A

  1. What is included in a vape kit?

Generally, a vape kit includes a mod with a battery, and the necessary components such as coils, pod or vape tank, charging cable etc.

  1. What is a mod for Vaping?

Vape Mod is generally larger devices than e-cigarettes, offering great vapor production with various advanced features.

  1. What's the difference between a mod and a pod?

Pods are smaller but more convenient and easy to use. Mods are designed for more vapor and flavor production. Pod and mod are designed for different vaping styles.

  1. Can I put any tank on my mod?

You can pair 510 threaded atomizers with 510 threaded mod but it does not mean that it will always work. If the resistance is lower than the mod can fire, it won’t work. If the diameter is too large, it won’t fit.

  1. Are Box Mods better than vape pens?

Box mods are more durable, bulk and solid than the vape pens, but they can offer more decent flavor and vapour. Vape pens are less durable, smaller, lighter, and easier to use.
