The Smok V2 Species Mod took me by surprise as I have had my doubts with Smoktech just pumping out new vaporizer after new vaporizer. But I will say they took there time on the Smok V2 Species, and truly made it unique in its own ways. One of the biggest drawing factors is its large Touch Screen colored display that actually works quite well. I was a bit worried about whether or not the touch features would be responsive enough for me to browse through settings making changed on the go. I will say it actually is on point and responds quite well compared to the G-priv 2 or the Luxe which had sluggish response times.
The V2 Species features a good 230 watts to play with so expect it to push any tank that is thrown at it for sure. There is also another nifty features which involves the single button on front below the display. This little guy will lock down the screen so that you wont have to worry about accidental wattage or settings changes.
The Smok V2 Species Mod does feature dual 18650 batteries so no need to worry about battery life. It also has a beefed up latch style battery door which appears to be a nice upgrade to previous versions of this style latch. So I would expect to hold up quite nicely to wear over time without becoming to loose as long as it's not dropped or abused. Battery life is also pretty good I do have to say. It is very similar to the original Smok Alien 220, and im not surprised as they share quite a few similarities.
Charging Your Vape: The Smok V2 Species does charge VIA the micro usb slot on the device it self (Make sure you do not use any fast charger, or charger blocks over 2amps. 0.5amp and 1amp charging is ideal to preserve the batteries). While this does work just fine we always recommend using a external charger. As this helps get you a deeper cycle charge increasing your daily life span by a bit, and your overall life span by quite a bit. Having a external charger also allows you to have a extra set of batteries charging so that you can hot swap them out if your batteries die on you.
