Highly portable and extremely compact, the Q-Box manages to implement most of the features of its larger predecessors. Both advanced and pocketable, it all seems too good to be true. Let’s see if Smok manages to deliver on their ambitious promises.
- 1x Q-Box 50W Mod
- 1x TFV8 Baby Beast Tank
- 2x 0.25ohm V8 Baby M2 Dual-Core coils (one pre-installed)
- 1x Micro-USB cable
- 1x Instruction Manual
- 1x Spare Parts
The chassis of the Q-Box is built entirely out of a durable zinc alloy. One of the downsides is the placement and the material used for the three buttons. They are located at the right side of the device, with the up/down buttons being placed next to one another and the firing button above them. All of them are made out of plastic, and they slightly protrude out of the device. This could cause accidental misfires. Additionally, the firing button is pretty loose, unresponsive, and placed at a slight angle.
510 threaded connection is on the top of the device, and it’s made out of stainless steel. The included tank sits perfectly flush, and so should all the tanks up to 22mm in diameter. On the bottom is the micro USB port.
TFV8 Baby Beast Tank
Alongside the included M2 0.25ohm dual-core coils, the Baby Beast supports a plethora of other sub-ohm coils, including the Q2 dual coil, the X4 quad coil, and T8 octuple coil. Keep in mind though that if you choose to buy any of these, you’ll be limited to a maximum of 50W strength with the Q-Box.
Depending on how frequent you vape, the included coils will last anywhere from 4 days to a couple of weeks. A coil replacement is a pretty simple process done through the bottom of the tank. Unfortunately, the tank will have to be empty if you don’t want to spill the liquid everywhere.
Another awesome feature is the puff counter. You can set the maximum amount of puffs for the day, after which the device won’t fire anymore. The display shows the remaining number of puffs, as well as providing you with an option to reset it. Finally, there is some additional information shown on the screen, such as the remaining battery life, internal temperature, voltage, etc.
Around 30-35W is where you’ll get the best battery-to-performance ratio. This will squeeze out an extra hour or two, while still providing satisfying flavor quality and vapor production. For maximum efficiency, it would be best to use coils meant for lower wattage vaping.
Unfortunately, the battery can’t be swapped, so you’ll need to have a charger on you at all times. The included coils don’t help either since they’re meant to be used at near-max wattages. It would’ve been a lot better if Smok included the Q2 dual-cores, which are ideal in the 30-40W range.
The micro USB port placement is also pretty inconvenient. Since it’s on the bottom, the device will have to be placed on its side. Although the Baby Beast isn’t prone to leaking, other tanks could have this problem, especially when full.
