SMOK Morph Pod-40 Kit

We check out a new pod system from Smok which uses the awesome RPM coils, so we have high hopes for the Morph Pod-40 kit

The Electric Cigarette Company (TECC) have sent over the latest pod mod from SMOK for us to try out, the SMOK Morph Pod-40 kit. This uses tried and tested SMOK RPM Coils so can it transform the experience or is it all a big decepticon?

SMOK Morph Pod-40 kit

Inside the simple packaging you’ll find the Morph Pod-40, two RPM Coils, a usb-c charge cable, and the usual paperwork. This kit is available in eight different colour combinations, although only four of those seem to be available at TECC at the time of writing, and mine came in the “black” option which has a stunning red frame.


  • 108.35mm x 37.2mm x 28.35mm
  • 123 grams
  • 2000mah internal battery / 1.4 amp charge rate
  • 5~40 watt output / 0.3~2.5 ohm resistance range
  • 2ml pod (3.7ml for non-TPD regions)

SMOK Morph Pod-40 different angles

The Morph Pod-40 has been designed with ergonomics and comfort in mind from the start and marks quite a departure from previous RPM kits. The “leather” cushioned grip around the back is curved to fit in the palm of your hand and compliments the large power bar which dominates the front of the Morph Pod-40, the 0.91” screen and up/down buttons have been moved to one side and this is all nicely framed by a red accent in my black version. Branding is nice and understated with a small “SMOK” logo on one side and a “Morph Pod-40” logo embossed into the spine of the “leather” grip.

Information on the build materials is strangely absent but it appears to be mainly plastics although the accent may be metal? It all seems to be fairly well constructed though with no annoying creaks or squeaks, and there’s no annoying button rattle present either.

The pod recess at the top of the Morph Pod-40 seems to be nicely sealed against leaks, a common problem with RPM Coils in the past, but only time will tell if this is the case. The pod is held in place with a combination of a large magnet on the bottom and two clips on the sides which means it snaps into position with no wobble in use and absolutely no chance of the pod coming out accidentally either. Also in this area is an adjustable airflow controller which has a nice resistance to the movement, you can’t quite close the airflow down to zero but it’s pretty close so if you prefer the more MTL style RPM Coils, this may be a particularly welcome addition.

On the base of the Morph Pod-40, you’ll find a usb-c charge port with a claimed 2000mAh capacity and up to 1.4 amp charging. In my test, it hit a peak charge rate of 1.39 amps with a total recorded charge of 1796mAh in 1 hour and 29 minutes.

SMOK Morph Pod-40 screen

The 0.91’ OLED screen doesn’t have all the colour “bells and whistles” of most modern kits and sports a simple black and white display. This can be rotated in four directions, curiously in portrait mode wattage is only adjustable in 1 watt increments whilst in landscape mode it’s adjustable in 0.1 watt increments, so that might be worth bearing in mind if you’re using the lower powered MTL orientated coils.

Performance on the board seems snappy, and there’s the usual gamut of safety features, but there’s precious little information available, only wattage mode is available and I’d say it’s unlikely that there’s any sort of boost functionality here. The menu system also seems to be a curious mix of the simple control system used in previous RPM pod kits with a nod to the older SMOK menus of several years ago which can get a little confusing at times. (For those of you new to vaping, the SMOK menu navigation of years gone by was awful!)

SMOK Morph Pod-40 RPM coils

Two RPM Coils are included in the box, a 0.6 ohm triple (round wire) coil and a 0.4 ohm mesh coil, which are press-fit into the bottom of the pod. The fill port has been moved to the outside this time which is much less of a faff, although I’d still recommend removing the pod periodically to mop up any leaks or condensation that may have built up underneath. The integrated drip tip has a conical shape which is superbly comfortable in use and much more preferable than the duckbill style favoured on previous kits. MTL lung purists may not like it though as it has a 5.3mm internal bore.

The coils performed as you might expect, and the adjustable airflow helped out here as I was able to further fine tune the vape experience to my liking. As all the RPM Coils are fairly low powered, you won’t be winning any cloud comps. Restricted direct lung and loose MTL are the order of the day here. Flavour was good but not mind blowing but it’s certainly acceptable.


  • Ergonomic
  • Uses tried and tested RPM coils
  • External fill port
  • 2000mAh battery


  • Largely plastic construction


This is a welcome addition to the RPM family of pod kits. Although it appears to be largely constructed from plastics, it all seems well put together. I think they got the ergonomics spot on here, the large leather grip and fire bar make this really pleasant to use and I much prefer the more traditional style drip tip over the duckbill designs often seen in these kits. Overall the SMOK Morph Pod-40 kit is a good buy. It’s not going to blow your mind or anything, but it's a decent enough pod kit to use whilst you’re out and about.

Many thanks to The Electric Cigarette Company for sending the SMOK Morph Pod-40 kit over for review.

I was a twenty a day smoker for 25 years and like most smokers I was always going to quit "next week". Having hit my mid forties and having the usual smokers cough and difficulty with anything more than moderate exercise it was obviously time to give up the cancer sticks. I bought my first e-cigarette in 2013 when they were expensive, difficult to find and quite frankly... crap. I used it for about a week then went back to the roll ups, mark up another failed quit attempt. The fact that I had just changed jobs and was under quite a lot of stress probably didn't help. Move on to 2016 and whilst I was browsing eBay I noticed that one of the suggested items that would occasionally pop up was for a cheap e-cigarette. It looked similar to the one I'd bought 3 years earlier but it was only £5 (about 8 times cheaper than before) so I decided to give it another go on a whim. Once the kit arrived I managed to gradually replace the cigarettes with my new kit over a two month period and got into watching YouTube reviews for newer kit. My cheap and cheerful kit was replaced by a more upmarket affair, and being a noob I made a mistake once it arrived... I put in the supplied direct lung coil, this was of course a complete revelation and I haven't touched a cigarette since. Oh and I no longer spend the first five minutes of every day having a coughing fit either.
