The Smok Rigel kit is a well-protected, highly versatile sub ohm kit, recommended for both advanced vapers and those who are looking to try sub ohm vaping. Powered by dual 18650 batteries (sold separately), the Rigel is capable of delivering a maximum 230W output which you can adjust between 1W - 230W. Featuring an ergonomic design, the Rigel kit comes with the 2ml TFV9 tank included, with an adjustable airflow and top fill system.
The Rigel delivers increased vapour production extremely fast, thanks to its 0.001 second ignition time. The Variable Wattage gives you the option to select a power level that matches the resistance of your coils and delivers your ideal level of vapour production. This ensures that the kit is not only suited to DTL (Direct to Lung) vaping, with the tank provided, but can also be paired with other tanks for MTL (Mouth to Lung) vaping. There are also protections against short-circuit and overheating, as well as an 8-second cut-off.
The Smok TFV9 sub ohm tank can hold 2ml of e-liquid and can be refilled easily thanks to the top filling feature. A sleek, adjustable bottom airflow gives you the choice of a loose or tight inhale. Utilising either the TFV9 0.15 Ohm mesh coils or the V8 Baby 0.15 Ohm mesh coils, we recommend pairing 70% VG or higher e-liquids for best results.
Important Information About Sub Ohm Vaping:
This device is intended for sub ohm vaping. Sub ohm vape kits require a greater amount of knowledge and experience to use safely. They use specially designed coils that register below 1.0 Ohm resistance, for use at higher wattages. These kits may also feature advanced modes that require a knowledge of vaping to be used correctly.
We recommend you do not use an e-liquid that has higher than a 6mg nicotine strength, this will be too harsh on the throat. Sub ohm vaping produces more vapour and because of this, an increased throat hit. High VG e-liquids will allow you to experience greater vapour production when used with this kit.

This is a great little tank and mod combo. The tank has great air flow and chucks some decent clouds...but I'd definitely get the bubble glass to take it from 2ml to 7ml. The mod was also great, but after a few months of use, it's gone and died on me :-( A quick google and it seems the issue might be related to charging - don't just pop off the back and pull out the batteries, you have to switch it off first. Never had that issue with any other mod though! Smok are in the process of sending me a replacement (it died just inside their 6 month warranty period)

I thought I would treat myself to a new piece of kit
so I opted for this one. I’ve had loads of Smok mods
and tanks before so I thought it would be a safe bet.
The mod it’s self is great and I’ve had no problems at all. The tank well I’m not so pleased with and I’ve stopped using it because it won’t stop leaking!!!!
So to cut a long story short I wish I’d just bought the mod and saved some money!!! Vape Club as usual fantastic service thank you very much.

Always been a Smok and Vape Club fan since I started vaping 7 years ago. Vape club's delivery and service on this order was great as usual but the product has been nothing but trouble. Intermittently cutting out, melting a cable and now won't power on at all after i have tried multiple different batteries etc etc.

I got gifted this for Christmas (after my loyal Smok Alien 220W finally gave up the ghost) and have waited a bit to give a full review. Overall, this is a great setup, just a few tiny issues that stop it being absolutely perfect.
The Mod is a great piece of kit. It fires quickly and smoothly, nice easy to read screen and feels extremely comfortable in your hand. Having tried TC before (and not really getting on with it), I like the fact that it is wattage only as that's all I ever use! No modes to endlessly scroll through and menus to get lost in. Just straight simplicity.
The only little issue with the mod is the puff counter. It has 4 digits on the display so should be able to run (in theory) to 9999 but, for some unknown reason, resets at 1000. Hopefully there'll be a firmware update to fix this!
The Tank is great but for the love of all that is holy, don't waste your time with the stock coils. I used both of them (thinking the first was a dud) within a week and the flavour was weak and bland. I was a bout to resign the tank to the scrap heap before discovering that you can actually use a range of coils in it. I grabbed out a GeekVape Supermesh Coil, primed it up and gave it a try. It transformed the tank and gave amazing flavour! Make sure you order a set to go along with this kit and save the stock coils for an emergency!
The tank itself is really well built, fantastically machined and feels extremely nice. The airflow is great, refilling is doddle and I imagine it'll more than take the abuse of daily use and keep performing beautifully.
The only annoying thing is the lift to refill safety feature on top is a bit rattly. Again, a very minor issue, but just not quite perfect.
Overall, for a new vaper or an old hand, this is a great Mod and a Great tank combo and I'm hoping it lasts as long as my old Smok setup (RIP the Alien!)
