SMOK - Thallo S Kit
The SMOK Thallo S Kit is a very light and handy e-cigarette that offers high flexibility and perfect reliability. The kit has a very clear tube style and therefore has an ergonomic shape. The hand feeling is therefore extremely pleasant with this kit and the device lies securely in the user's hand in every situation. The fact that the SMOK Thallo S Kit works with high-quality ready-made atomizer heads means that the device is also very suitable for beginners.
The SMOK Thallo S Kit is very flexible with regard to the batteries
The SMOK Thallo S Kit offers the option of inserting a 21700 or 18650 battery. With the larger battery, the IQ-XS chipset in the kit has a maximum output of 100 watts. With the smaller battery, the device can achieve a maximum output of 80 watts. The user can quickly charge the inserted battery internally via USB-C. When fired, the chip reacts incredibly quickly within 0.001 seconds and the power of the device can be freely set between 5 watts and the maximum power. The vaper benefits from the generous display of the device, which clearly shows all important values. The color schemes of the display are adjustable. It goes without saying that the manufacturer SMOK has also thought of all the important protective measures for this device.
The SMOK Thallo S Kit is suitable for DL and MTL
The pods of the SMOK Thallo S Kit can be filled and have a continuously adjustable airflow. The tank volume of the pods is 5ml and each pod has a filling opening on the side for convenient filling. The interchangeable coils of the RPM2 series are used as coil heads, which the manufacturer provides in different resistances for DL and MTL.

SMOK Thallo Review: Does the Drag have competition?
Portable pod mods seem to be here to stay, and the SMOK Thallo is one of the more recent efforts to make this a standard. But how does it compare to the competition or even its own RPM systems?
The SMOK Thallo: Well, that looks like an old friend
SMOK is one of those companies that you either love or hate. I find myself to be a pretty moderate person when it comes to SMOK. Some of their products are really great, like the RPM series.
This newer pod mod looks familiar… . The devil is often in the details. But let's not just auto dump the SMOK Thallo because it looks like a different product. I mean, we're talking about vaping here. There are only so many different ways you can hook up an atomizer to a mod. Some companies find really clever ways to do this, but we usually see that in the high-end world.
SMOK Thallo: Features, Specifications and Design
SMOK Thallo is made of carbon fiber
Let's start with the basics: It looks a lot like the Voopoo Drag S REALLY looks like it. But so is every other pod mod that has come out in the last two years. There really isn't much that can be changed here. You can add a few different shapes or accents... but it's still the same basic design.
So why not focus on the things the SMOK Thallo does that some of these other pod mods don't.
The pod itself is plastic like the latest pod mods with the “Plug N Play” style coils. It has a bottom fill grommet system which is also a great feature of most pods. This allows the coil to be easily inserted from below and connected directly to the mouthpiece.
For the pod, you get two very different columns in the box. Both are the RPM 2 coils which are very similar to the original. However, they cover completely different bases. Suitable for freebase liquid and sub ohm vaping, the mesh coil works great at around 20 watts. The other coil is a 0.6 coil which is better suited for higher nicotine juices and a more restricted style of vaping.
I love it when a company includes two very different types of coils with what is essentially a "starter kit". This way, the customer can try both styles and see which one they ultimately want to stick with. Or maybe they like both and switch between the two (I'm very guilty).
The mod itself is pretty standard fare. It has a fire button and two buttons that control the wattage. They also have a fairly large battery capacity. At 3000mAh you basically have a built in 18650 battery and then some. This makes the mod easily last all day, especially with the higher ohm coils running at around 15 watts.
I mean, it puts out 80 watts, but you're never going to use that kind of power with this setup.
The mod also has a great full color screen with all the information you need. The screens of these little pod mods are going to be really awesome! The colors are crisp and easy to read. The outside of the mod has either rubber or leather accents depending on which model you choose.
The top of the mod has a really easy to use airflow control that matches the pod. This can be dialed down to almost MTL levels. Wide open, it's perfect for the sub-ohm coil and has plenty of airflow. At the end of the day it's pretty versatile and works great with either coil.
For once, branding for a SMOK device isn't out of control. They have a logo on both sides of the mod. It is... dare I say tasteful. This has been a common thread with new SMOK products lately and I think this is a big step in the right direction. There is nothing cheesy about the SMOK Thallo.
SMOK Thallo: Final Thoughts
Okay, so it's another pod mod device. Sure, we've seen these before, and every company makes one these days. I get it. I've been a bit tired lately when it comes to pod mods and the cheaper starter kits. But that's the trend, for better or for worse.
But the reality is, this is actually a pretty competent starter kit. The goal is to get people to start vaping and quit smoking. There are tons of kits worse than pod mods!
I would like to thank the electronic-cigarette.ie company for the opportunity to test this product and the opportunity to publish your opinion on the website of their shop.
