SMOK Stick AIO

The latest pen styled kit to come out of the vast SMOK stable is the SMOK Stick AIO, featuring an all in one design that has the tank fixed to the battery, in order to provide a sleek and stealthy device that is also leak resistant and compliant with the current EU TPD legislation. 

The SMOK Stick AIO also features a built in 1600 mAh battery, recharged via the USB port. It has a TPD friendly 2ml capacity, that is top filled, and it takes

0.23ohm SMOK Stick AIO coils which feature improved juice wicking holes to wick even the highest VG juices, with bi-directional airflow.

SMOK Stick AIO

As we have come to expect with SMOK products, you get everything you need to get going (except for eliquid) included within the SMOK Stick AIO kit. You get the SMOK Stick AIO itself, two 0.23ohm dual coil Stick AIO coil heads, a USB charging cable, user manual, a spares baggie that generously consists of a single black o-ring, and a vape band that SMOK kindly include with absolutely everything they release, it serves absolutely no real purpose here other than to remind you to ‘keep on vaping’, I suppose you could garner a small amount of enjoyment from it by flicking it at someone's head.

Measuring in with a 22mm width, 115mm height and weighing only 95g, the SMOK Stick AIO is a discreet pocket friendly kit that is pretty nice to hold. It's manufactured from stainless steel, with four finishes available in black, silver, gold and 7-colour, and has a built in glass tank section. It sports an all in one styled design, so the tank and battery are not separate units. 

Capacity of the SMOK Stick AIO is a TPD friendly 2ml, refilled through the swivel cap at the top. The drip tip present on the SMOK Stick AIO is removable so you can use your own drip tips should you wish. The supplied coil heads feature a dual coil configuration with a resistance of 0.23ohm, and two wicking holes are found on each side. 

The front of the SMOK Stick AIO features a large firing button, with an intelligent LED indicator that will blink four times each time it is pressed. If it blinks 15 times in a row, this indicates the battery voltage is under 3.3V and it needs to be recharged. This LED light is quite hard to see during bright sunlight conditions and I found I needed to move to a lower light area in order to see the LED clearly. Recharging the in built 1600 mAh battery is done through the USB port on the opposite side to the button. 

Using the SMOK Stick AIO

Despite the description on the box stating that one of the 0.23ohm dual coil heads was pre installed with my SMOK Stick AIO, there actually wasn't a coil head pre installed. To install a coil head, you need to screw it into the top cap then screw the top cap into the SMOK Stick AIO. Flip the swivel cap open afterwards, and fill with eliquid through the filling port, then leave it to stand for 5-10 minutes afterwards to allow the wick to correctly absorb enough eliquid.

Operating the SMOK Stick AIO is done solely using the large single button located on the mod. 5 clicks will turn it on and off, a single click will fire it and an eight second cut off is built in to prevent it from being fired too long. The direct to lung vape does seem a little underpowered, you do get some good flavour from it though and a nice amount of vapour. I did find that during prolonged usage, the SMOK Stick AIO itself does get very hot, which was a little concerning. 

Battery capacity is 1600 mAh and this should well be enough to get you through a day. I have been using the SMOK Stick AIO as a backup device and I get a couple of days usage out of it this way, recharging is quick and easy through the USB port on the mod. Alongside the eight second cut off, additional safety features are built in such as intelligent atomizer recognition, a low battery warning and short circuit protection. 

Conclusion

It's nothing groundbreaking, but the SMOK Stick AIO is a solid all in one pen styled device. It may feel a little underpowered, but it still does offer a pleasing and consistent vape with fairly decent flavour, and you can use it with minimal fuss required. You have an easy filling option, and one button does all the work for you.  

All in all it's a decent little kit that just offers a little extra ‘oomph’ over pod system devices, and may hold appeal to those that find pod system devices to have too tight a draw. At the price point the SMOK Stick AIO is available for, it's hard to knock it really, and it offers a good option for someone that is looking for a backup second device.  We have three of these to give away thanks to the good folk at SMOK - click here to be in with a chance of winning one!
