Author: Alisa Yin / Category: Review / Published: Feb-06-2020

The SMOK RPM80 and RPM80 Pro Pod Mod Kits are the latest and first products made from SMOK for 2020. In the past 2019, SMOK as the leading manufacturer in the vape industry took the first step and introduced the innovative and brand-new pod mod kit - SMOK RPM40, which has swept the globe quickly. The SMOK RPM40 is still very popular on the market, and definitely the most successful pod mod kit. The RPM80 and RPM80 Pro are the upgraded and more powerful version of the SMOK RPM40 Pod Mod Kit, which are marketed as the next game-changer in the field.

The differences between RPM80 and RPM80 Pro is the battery type. The constructions and designs between them are the same. The SMOK RPM80 is driven by a built-in 3000mAh battery, and the RPM80 Pro is powered by a single 18650 battery (Sold Separately). The RPM80 Pod Mod Kit is shorter than the RPM80 Pro due to internal battery.

The well-designed pattern on both sides makes them stand out.

You will get two different pod cartridges from the package with different replacement coils - SMOK RPM pod and the SMOK RGC pod. The RPM pod is compatible with the original SMOK RPM series. The RGC pod is matched with the innovative NexMesh conical 0.17ohm coil, which is pre-installed. Both of the standard version pods can hold 5ml maximum e-liquid.

The SMOK RGC pod has a bottom adjustable airflow design, which is the first pod with adjustable airflow by SMOK. The airflow ring at the base can be rotated to adjust the airflow intake.

The brand-new 0.17ohm RGC conical mesh coil powered by nexMesh Technology features the innovative and special conical structure, which can enlarge the airflow inlet and compress the vapor when it goes through the coil to the drip tip. The RGC conical mesh coil is designed for strong and warm throat hit, massive and dense vapor production with the unparalleled burst of flavor.

Review of SMOK RPM80 & RPM 80 Pro

The SMOK RPM80 & RPM 80 Pro is the upgraded version of the original RPM40. They feature a more powerful battery and power output. The 80W maximum wattage output is more than sufficient for a mod pod. The newly upgraded IQ80 chip makes the RPM80 series stands out, as it provides the intelligent features and several safety protections due to the higher power output. The flavor from RPM80 and RPM80 Pro is excellent and extremely top-notch. The brand new RPM80 RGC Pod features adjustable airflow and uses the RGC Conical Mesh 0.17ohm coil that supports the power up to 80W for warm and intense flavor with massive vapor. The RPM80 RPM Pod is also compatible with all of the RPM40 coils. If you are looking for a portable and functional device, I will highly recommend you to try the SMOK RPM80 series. It will never let you down!
