How do I start with this unique creative sub-ohm mod? The design is like nothing I have encountered before. A mysterious skull on the front wearing a top hat that functions as an OLED screen. Smok didn’t stop there though – the eyes of the skull can light up in 12 different colours with 3 light styles to choose from (normal, flash or fade). There is also an option of 6 colours for you to choose for screen settings. If you like to be noticed, then this is the mod for you! Oh, and in case that’s not enough light for you, the tank lights up too (Big Baby Light Edition). The up and down function buttons are hidden on the hat’s brim. The side fire key is ergonomically designed and sits along the left side, fitting comfortably into your hand. As Smok says “Take S-Priv to a party and rule the party”!
The S-PRIV mod is a dual 18650 (batteries sold separately) mod supporting up to a massive 225 watts of power. The batteries can be easily inserted/removed via the hinged door at the base of the unit. The charging port is located on the back, but it is recommended that 18650 batteries be charged externally in an appropriate charger to get the most out of your batteries.
The large LED screen shows you the following information: mode (wattage or temperature mode), voltage, resistance, current wattage and/or temperature, puff timer and current battery charge for each 18650 battery. For ease of use 3 modes are available – variable wattage, temperature control and memory mode. In Variable Wattage (VW) mode you can manually set your preferred wattage. Temperature Control (TC) mode allows you to select between Titanium (Ti), Nickel (Ni) or Stainless Steel (SS) depending on your preferred coil. Whilst Memory mode allows you to choose from 22 different settings that you can pre-set and modify at will. The S-PRIV supports both wattage mode for all wattage coils (from 0.1 ohms to 3 ohms), and temperature mode for Nickel, Titanium and Stainless-Steel coils (from 0.06 ohms to 3 ohms). The temperature range is between 100-315 degrees Celsius (200-600 degrees Fahrenheit).
The S-PRIV is paired with the Stainless Steel TFV8 Big Baby Light Edition Tank (510 threaded). This is an upgrade of the TFV8 Big Baby Tank, adding LEDs which light up when you vape. 2 coils are included in this kit – V8 Baby-Q2 Core 0.4ohm dual coils (pre-installed) and V8 Baby-T8 Core 0.15ohm octuple coils. Both capable of supplying deep and rich clouds. The Smok TFV8 Big Baby Light Edition tank is a top-filling 5ml tank of 24.5mm diameter, just slide the top lid to the side to fill. Top refill system makes filling as easy as it gets. The leak proof e-liquid slot can significantly solve leaking problem. The adjustable air-flow brings you an extremely open draw and can be adjusted freely by turning the ring at the base of the atomiser. For those of you who like when things match this kit comes with 6 O-Rings each in a different colour, so you can match them to the light colour that you choose.

At Smok they take your protection seriously by providing the following; Intelligent Atomiser Recognition, Puff Monitoring System, 10 second cut-off, short circuit protection, overheating protection and low battery warning. All working together to help keep you safe.
To use: Priming your new coil is the first task for any new coil/vaporiser and this is no exception. Priming helps to protect your coil and yourself from dry hits or a burnt horrible taste (damaged coil). Unscrew the tank from the mod (510 threaded) and unscrew the base of the tank from the glass to expose the coil within (use a paper towel if difficult to unscrew – take care with the glass). You now need to saturate the cotton within the coil with a little e juice. Reassemble your tank and screw back onto your mod. Slide open the drip tip and dribble in a little more e-juice just to ensure complete saturation (you can fill it you wish). Place your device to the side for a short while to allow all the e -juice to make its way through the cotton. Now time for the primer puffs – without touching the firing button take a few sharp short pulls from the tank. You may see air bubbles rising to the top of the tank. Your new coil is now ready for use. Don’t forget to charge!
When you screw a new device (tank) onto your mod you will be automatically asked if it is a new or old coil. If this does not occur unscrew and rescrew your tank till it registers. Always say yes if coils are new. The preinstalled Temperature Control program supports Nickel (Ni), Titanium(Ti) and Stainless Steel (SS) Coils. It also comes with Memory Mode for enhanced accuracy. This unit also comes with Intelligent Atomiser Recognition to make the process easier and safer.
Navigating the menu is extremely simple. As per most units 5 clicks of the fire button will turn on /off the device. 3 clicks to enter into the menu system. To move between each various option long press the fire button. The up and down button located on the brim of the hat will change your settings. The menu will not only help you set your preferred vaping conditions, but can also change the colour of the screen, eyes and tank as well as monitoring your puffs, screen time and other options. Make sure you explore! Before you get started make sure your wattage and/or temperature modes are correct (if unsure about wattage check the imprint on the side of your coils and or check the packaging/manual). All your chosen options should appear on the default menu screen. Happy vaping!
