The SMOK ALIKE 40W Pod Mod Kit is an affordable hybrid device that’s waterproof, dustproof, and also shockproof! It’s been specifically designed for vapers that work outdoors or frequent harsh conditions. It delivers fantastic flavor and can easily produce big clouds of vapor. The ALIKE is SMOK’s answer to the Geekvape AEGIS Boost Pod Mod. Keep reading to find out how this new contender compares to the Geekvape juggernaut.
SMOK was founded way back in 2010 by Shenzhen IVPS Technology Co Limited. They’ve successfully positioned themselves as the go-to vape manufacturer in 2020 for beginner devices and accessories. This is all thanks to a huge back catalog of extremely popular products that include the RPM 80 and Nord 2. SMOK also boasts an impressive 80 million customers worldwide and as a result, delivers fantastic after-sale support.
The SMOK ALIKE 40W Pod Mod Kit is a compact and stealthy device that measures just 77mm’s by 43mm’s by 23mm’s. It boasts an internal 1600mAh battery that can output between 1 and 40 watts. I was able to get a day or so worth of vaping out of it before having to recharge. This is done via its MicroUSB port that has a rather flimsy cover.
The SMOK ALIKE features a familiar stitched faux leather chassis and zinc-alloy trim. I prefer the look of the AEGIS Boost, but do see the rugged appeal of the SMOK ALIKE. The front face boasts a clicky fire button that’s great for thumb firing. This is because the cartridge has a nice rubber cutout for your index finger. The device can fire within 0.001 seconds, which is much quicker than the AEGIS Boost.
The SMOK ALIKE 40W Pod Mod Kit is rated IPX7. This means it can be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes. The AEGIS Boost can also do this and more. It’s been certified to protect against dust, something that SMOK can only claim. The cartridge on top is made from food-grade PCTG and can hold a huge 5.5ml of eliquid. It features a plug ‘n’ play coil system and easy to use side fill port.
The SMOK ALIKE comes with two long-lasting RPM coils and an RPM cartridge. This includes a 0.4ohm mesh and 0.8ohm DC. A separate NORD cartridge can be bought separately. This isn’t a big issue for me because I prefer the flavor from the RPM coil series, but this may annoy other vapers that prefer NORD coils. In previous SMOK starter kits, they’ve included both cartridges. I guess this was scratched to lower the overall price.
The SMOK ALIKE 40W Pod Mod Kit is currently available to buy right now. The best price I could find online was $34.95 USD from EightVape. I think that’s a smashing price and much cheaper compared to similar devices on the market. I would highly recommend the ALIKE to vapers that are on a budget and don’t care too much about the extra dust protection.
The SMOK ALIKE 40W Pod Mod Kit comes in a variety of colors that include green, gold, red, blue, and also gunmetal. The packaging is modern and well presented. Inside you’ll find your ALIKE Pod Mod, 1 x cartridge, 2 x coils, MicroUSB charging cable, and also a user manual. Practically everything you need to get started. Overall it’s a great alternative to the Geekvape AEGIS Boost Pod Mod.
