The Smok RPM40 pod vape kit has been designed for users of all experience levels. It combines a compact design with a very large built-in 1500mAh battery. With a 1 - 40W output range, you can tailor the Smok RPM's performance to match your vaping style. The 2ml pods themselves can be used with Smok Nord coils or the Smok RPM coils - supporting a mouth to lung or direct to lung vaping style.
Despite the large battery and integrated chipset, the Smok RPM starter kit is still very compact. Designed to be used on the go, the battery will provide up to a full day of vaping and the 2ml pods are easy to refill. The menu system is simple to navigate, allowing you to quickly set your wattage.
There are two types of 2ml refillable pods that can be used with the kit. The Smok RPM standard pod uses replaceable RPM coils, for use with high VG e-liquids that are 60% VG or higher. The Smok Nord pods allow you to use the entire nord coil range, supporting high VG and high PG e-liquids.
Overall, The Smok RPM40 kit has something to offer for users of all experience levels, whether you're looking for a simple vape starter kit or a compact kit that will produce larger amounts of vapour.

After reading lots of positive reviews about this device I was surprised to be having technical problems within months of purchasing. Other than that I liked it easy to use good for first timers lots of coil choice although the coils don’t last very long
By Liberty Cap from Sheffield
This is the first vape I ever owned, purchased over 4 years ago - does it still work? Yes it does, still holds charge and works perfectly. Nice size and weight and is well built. Easy to buy replacements pods for it and coils last a long time.
By Luc from United Kingdom
Nice pod system it’s Brilliant, plenty of flavour too. Overall a really nice vape
By Poppy from Warwickshire
This was the first mod vape I purchased, this was a great start, it was easy to set up with plenty of options and different settings- didn’t have any issues with this would recommend buying.

It's a good vape, amazing range of coils, lovely airflow and nice solid build. The coils are quite expensive but all coils are these days. The flavour isn't quite as good as others but. But that might have been my coil choice. Smok have upped their game so the kit hasn't broken yet. Solid all rounder.
By PJ from Berkshire
I personally found this to be a cheap & nasty pod system. The side pieces with the colours on peeled off & it wasn't any good as MTL or DTL.
Save your money & buy a Smok Nord 4 or a Voopoo drag S or X as this is old technology and things have moved on, oh yeah, it also leaks
By Sarcasti_c from Kent
Well I had this pod device for months now. And yesterday I gave up on it and ordered something else.
Pods - dark one leaks constantly, light one is better, but still leaking, especially if You fill it up fully - You are screwed.
Coils for light pod give more flavour (in the beginning) last long, even with sweet liquids, however it looses the taste after few days, (and I don't vape much) vape becomes like a ghost of flavour that You had before. Didn't even bother to use dark pod as it leaks, and also I hate the fact that it's so dark, that You can't see how much liquid You have left.
Battery - it charges really fast, however - since day 3 it has been a struggle, You can't vape, it says battery empty, You put it on charge - and it still has 46% - like wtf.
Yeah, it looks good, yeah it feels nice and light, and compact, it has flavour (for a while) can get nice clouds depending on juice, mouthpiece is nice...but battery and leaking issues just made me put it in a drawer to rot.

I bought the RPM 40 about 9 Mths ago and still use it everyday. I use the 0.4 Ohm coils which last for weeks and produce lovely flavour and vapour. I have quite a few device's now but never leave home without my RPM 40.
By MARK from Angus
I got this to move on from a Nord 2, it's incredibly portable, and the battery life is amazing. The 2 coils you get with it both provide a very nice amount of flavour, although I prefer the RPM coils, they're both very good! The colour options are cool and the display is easy to read. Definitely recommend. The only niggle is the design of the tanks, they're dark tint, VERY hard to see how much liquid is left.
By Lisa from Oxfordshire
I purchased the rpm 40 through hearing good reviews. I did buy the lost vape orion plus kit but was getting fed up with leaky pods all the time. So went for this in the white and using moreish puff lemon sherbert nic salts, with the. 4 mesh rpm coil and have been using it just over a day and so far dry as a bone. This little device is freaking awesome!!!
By ScottyP from East Yorkshire
Great little pod kit for the starter or veteran vaper. Nice on the grip, easy to fill (and see, which is a bonus in the UK). A very unisex vape kit that will keep all happy. Don't be put off by the mouth piece shape, if your used to a round tip, you will more than likely find this better. Thanks vapeclub for a super quick delivery and as always, thanks for stocking. I recommend.
By Madcaz from London
Started off quite positive with this pod mod.
But after a few days it was leaking a lot ( tried different level of juices).
The coils don't seem to last long either, if vaping at 35w the battery doesn't last long either.
Just a little disappointed with it. Its now joined the graveyard of pod mods on my shelf.
Fantastic device and is now being used as my main vape, cant recommends enough!
By Kel from Watford, Herts
This pod has been fantastic! I once tried a pen many years ago and got nowhere. With this POD I have pretty much given up smoking completely. Very easy to use; Refil of liquid is quick and easy, charging is quick and the menu is easy to navigate/change.
It comes with a lock also which means there is no accidental fires on the coil. I used the black tank that came in the box, great coil worked very nicely with my e-liquid, generated a good throat hit and vapour (more than expected even) If you are a novice I would highly recommend as it is low maintenance and easy to run.
On this coil I got on average of 3700 puffs. Replacement coils are cheap.
By Nic from Bushey
I really love my new RPM40 from Smok. It looks great and is lightweight, with a powerful battery for its size and weight. My favourite coil and pod for draw and flavour is the RPM pod with the RPM 0.4 mesh coil. Happily vape it between 15 and 25 watts, with 3mg vape juice 70 VG.
By Are from London
This device, is simply put, a game changer! Used to have the cleito tank, this pod mod with the RPM coil beats it for ease of use, lifespan, and on most occasions, the flavour! I have the Green one, looks awesome, and charges very quickly! Get one now!
By Lg from Hull
If you like DTL but hate having to carry a big mod and tank about town this is for you it is compact Easy to fit in pocket or bag good size screen can clearly see what info you need nice and bright too,the pods are 2 ml but what can you do still ok I think this vapes great on 0.6 coils the flavour is very good what more can I say it is perfect for at home or when you are out well worth the money in my book

Bare with me as there is a lot to cover here...
I have been trying for months and months to find the perfect pod system that does not just bridge the gap between MTL pods and DTL tanks but to do both and fill every section in-between.
I have tried at least 15 or so pod systems marketed at DTL & MTL and have found some beauties like the GeekVape Bident and the Lost Vape Lyra but not found one that will work perfectly as a MTL and DTL with no real sacrifices.
Smok have finally nailed it!
This kit gives you access to no fewer than 9 different coils (5x RPM and 4x Nord) and interchangeable & replaceable tanks!
PLUS on it's way is a rebuildable RBA coil that allows you to really get your hands dirty and build your coil to whatever power and wick choice you want!! For what is a pod kit in the £30-£40 range this is a huge addition and will make a lot of people happy!
The airflow is controlled by the coil used and power is fully adjustable from 1-40W with a nifty display and button setup.
It has a respectable 1500ma battery that with most of the coils and careful use of power will last you all day.
Both RPM and Nord sub ohm coils have huge airflow and give fantastic DTL performance with big clouds and huge flavour.
The MTL coils have a good selection of tighter airflow with more discreet clouds but with massive flavour from your favourite juices.
You can set your power level to boost or reduce vape production to suit you and can use it to either stretch out your battery run time or increase the cloud size over the recommended power.
With this system there is no such thing as a dry hit as all the coils soak quickly so you can really cane it and it won't burn (as long as you have liquid in the tank of course).
Having the two different tank types is a really smart idea as not only does it mean double the amount of coils available to you it means that if your local or online vape shop of choice is out of stock of RPM coils they are likely to have Nord coils that you can use instead and vice versa.
Personally I love the mesh coils and although the recommended power is 25W I run mine much lower at between 12-15W which still gives me big clouds and big flavour but keeps my battery going all day and then goes on charge over night.
If you do want to get even bigger clouds you can actually push the same coils up to the full 40W and they out perform a lot of dedicated DTL tanks I have used, however it will take its toll on battery life and mean you will need to charge halfway though the day and during the evening if you are using this as your only device (which I now am). However it charges very quickly and has pass through power so you can keep using it.
The display and fully adjustable settings are spot on and make the unit super versatile. Again it is leaps and bounds ahead of any of it's rivals at this price point.
I have never been that keen on Smok and in the past mainly because of problems with their build quality and leaky tanks etc... so I was wary of this on this kit. My reservations were quickly removed as the whole package is extremely well built, feels great and looks amazing. I have had absolutely no liquid getting out of the tank through either the rubber stopper or through the entry point of the coil in the bottom thanks to double rubber push fit seals on the coils and there is no spitting of hot liquid up through the mouth piece. It is totally leak free which is an amazing feat!
The unit is a beautifully made piece of kit.
The price point is spot on and you get a lot for your money and the coils and replacement tanks are the same price as any other higher power pod system.
This kit is a monster and the first AIO pod system I have tried to be both a true DTL and regular MTL device and fills every spot in-between!
I have been looking for the perfect pod system and I just found it! 10/10.
By Sharmac from Uk
Tried both tanks with the included coils. Vaped loaded 6mg cotton candy through the rpm tank at around 35watts and it produces great clouds and flavour. Same results using the nord tank with pod salt peanut butter 20mg at 20watt. The device is more airy than the smaller pods smok make due to the vents...something to keep in mind (less of a tight draw with this), but im incredibly happy with it and my poor nords might now be sitting on the shelf with my drag2, snow-wolf and species sub-om devices! Poor babys!
Also of note is the build quality seems fantastic....smok have come a long way.
