As with all SMOK devices, the G-Priv 2 comes packaged in a cardboard box featuring the brand logo, a picture of the assembled device, and an impressive description. On opening the box, you will spot the G-Priv Device, and next to it lies the TFV12 prince sub-ohm tank.

One 0.12ohm and one 0.4ohm coils are included, one already pre-installed. There’s the T10 Decuple Coil and Q4 Quadruple Coil. Additionally, you get a USB charging cable, a spare glass tube, and a user manual.

Now that we’ve dispensed with the specifications, let’s take a look at what you get.

SMOK G-PRIV 2 Package Content

Sharp Looking Mod with Reduced Hand-Fatigue

The G-Priv 2 is significantly smaller in size compared to its predecessor. In essence, it feels the same as the G-Priv but has a lot less mass. The result? Something very light as a deck of cards.

The mod has a fine square shape with smooth curvy edges that is comfortable to hold. The anodized frames are a real picture. Get the candy apple red for a matchy-matchy action.

The 510 connection is centrally located on top of the mod, where even 25mm atomizers balance comfortably without appearing to overhang. The threads are gold-plated with a stiff spring so your tank can fit without leaving any gaps.

Smartphone-Like Interface

A generous 2-inch screen that’s a thing of beauty. SMOK says its shock resistant. It’s a display of information in the impressive font. You can see the battery life, preheat, resistance, puff counter, voltage, watt, and temperature.

If you are comfortable with a smartphone, then navigating through G-Priv 2 menu will be a piece of cake. The touchscreen is responsive to a user-friendly interface. From here, you can change the UX font, set the preheat and wattage levels, and switch between various vaping modes.

To change the color of the Screen – Navigate to the menu system and select between light blue, purple, green, yellow, white, and red font. Operations are a breeze, just like on a smartphone.

To lock the screen – there’s a lock screen button just above the fire button. Use this button to render the screen touch-less that no operations go on when on the move.

Feature-Laden Board

The G-Priv board is a 230W platform with a full TC suite that supports Ni200, SS, and Ti coils. It has a proprietary TCR function adjustable from the screen. The temperature range is 200-600F. The board will fire as low as 0.05ohms, which means you can use even a 0.1ohm resistance atomizer.

Impressive 2*18650 battery

So, there’s the thing that touchscreens consume lots of power, and you would think that applies here, right? You couldn’t be more wrong. Two high-drain 18650 batteries power the G-Priv 2. The batteries are held in position by a powerful magnetic door lock.

Expect an all days’ worth of vaping without any charging need. The G-Priv 2 battery life is as impressive as the ProColor. Plus, if you set the display at low brightness, you shouldn’t experience any battery issues.

A TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank

The TFV included in the kit is a new TFV12 Tank with a top airflow system and convenient top-fill rotary design. TFV coils have been known to be expensive, yet inconsistent performers, but the T10 and Q4 included in the TFV12 tank works perfectly.

The top of the tank features an impressive 810 cobra resin drip tip that enables smooth draws. The tank is easy to use and takes up to 8ml e-juice.

Performance of the G-Priv Kit

When setup accordingly, the G-Priv is a beast. Expect no compromised flavors and vapors from the included decuple or quadruple coils. What’s impressive is how the board’s job of pulsing the vape so that the mod can deliver an impressive 230W.

The first coil in the TFV12 tank is the 0.12ohm T10 Decuple Coils rated for 60-120W. It’s awe-inspiring when it comes to flavor but not so big on clouds. Given this is a top airflow tank, the flavor profile with the Q4 coil is a big thumbs up.

For cloud chasers, the 0.4ohm Q4 coil has got your back. It’s not as flavorful as the T10, but the cloud size is impressive. The rating is 40-110W, but the sweet spot is around 80W.

Apart from the included coil, you can get your own RDA and RDTAs, and you won’t have to worry about paying $15 for TFV coils.
