Smok Tech once again entices our vaping tastes with their newest alien mod but this time they are not showing off power instead they are aiming for a more convenient compact vape mod. If you loved their Alien 220W mod, well you will surely love its little brother. Smok recently released the SMOK Alien Baby AL85 kit. It maintains all the great designs of its bigger brother Alien 220W but it is packed in a more compact size measuring only 71 x 48 x 27mm.
Its reasonably priced at only $44.90 from efuntop here
It may be small in size but it sure packs a lot of power having a maximum output of 85W and its being powered by a single 18650. It does not shy off with the features as well; it has everything you need to suit your personal vaping experience. It uses the same chipset as its bigger brother and does have Variable Wattage mode, temperature control mode for Stainless Steel, Titanium and Nickel plus three memory slots for your custom setup.
Looking at the overall design, it is virtually identical to the Smok Alien 220W just smaller. The only big difference that you will notice on the first look is the battery cap. Unlike its predecessor wherein the battery slots are on the bottom, this alien baby, due to its size uses a top battery slot with screwable battery cover same as Eleaf’s iStick Pico. For me, this is a better way of putting in batteries, no need to tilt your mod
upside down you just need to unscrew the battery cover and insert the batts while the mod is sitting upright on your table.
The body of the alien baby al85 has the same beautiful lines as the 220W and same OLED screen which displays the battery percentage, wattage, voltage, ohm resistance, what mode you are on and puff counter. Right below the screen are the adjustment buttons. Their signature big firing button occupies the whole side of the mod and is very responsive anywhere you click it.
At the top, you can see the spring loaded 510 connection which makes it compatible with almost every atomizers in the market. The width of the mod measures 27mm that means your 22mm up to 26mm atomizer will sit flush on this mod. Right next to the 510 connection is the battery cover.
For the test, I used my Limitless RDTA 24mm with 24g fused claptons reading at 0.12 ohm. My alien baby was set at 75W variable wattage mode. The size and design of the mod fits comfortably in my hands. First few puffs and I am getting decent amount of clouds which means that the Alien Baby is giving an accurate amount of power when heating up the coils. Having just one battery and constantly vaping at around 80 – 85 watts, the batt life only last for good 3 hours of constant vaping, always make sure you have an extra battery with you. The mod has a very sturdy feel to it, no battery rattles or whatsoever.
* Really compact design and very easy to carry around.
* As always, the big firing button is a big win for me.
* All the great features packed in this small mod makes it suitable for almost anyone who wants to start vaping or even with the advanced vapers who just wants a compact mod.
I cannot think of any cons for this mod since it has everything you need to enjoy vaping.
Overall, this alien baby al85 kit is one of the best mid-size mod. Its simplicity and user friendly menu adds up to being a great mod. With all the features packed on this small mod, I am sure that even the advance users will enjoy this baby.
