    I bought the Smok Alien.. It has become my new favorite mod. It is small and very well built.. Just feel so solid in the hand. The fire button is so nice.. When comparing it to the smok ultra or smok h-priv it is def the best of the three. It doesn't move or rattle like the other devices. It is just solid. Be warned though Mike Vapes received three smok aliens and two of them had strange clicking sounds on their fire buttons so there is def a quality control problem there but luckily my fire button doesn't have any of those issues it is just really nice to use. The screen is well informed and just looks like a nice quality screen. Very sharp and well defined lines. Feels like a quality OLED screen to me but I have no idea what kind of screen it is. It also just looks so much nicer in real life. I feel the pictures make it look like cheap plastic but it is anything but cheap looking in real life. One thing I do not like about though and this is just nitpicking and isn't by any means a deal breaker is it kinda a lefty device.. If holding it in your right hand your palm is over the screen. I feel it is best used in the right hand by using it to thumb fire this way the screen faces out. Prior to getting this I was using the ipv6x and let me tell you it is just so much nicer. While I love the ipv6x it has given me some problems. These problems are quality control. I probably just got a bad one. First the ipv6x 510 pin is slightly positioned wrong and my tanks are dipping to the right a little when looking at the screen. Also the battery door opens on it own if you are two rough with it.. Like for instance if I put the ipv6x down too hard the door pops open and falls over with the batteries popping out. So you have to be somewhat gentle with it. So my point being the smok alien just feels more solid and better put together then the ipv6x. The smok alien is shorter then the ipv6x but it is significantly fatter. Even being fatter it fits really nice in the hand and the smok aliens fire button makes it so you don't have to search for the fire button or extend your index finger to fire which is really nice. The chip it is using I believe is the same as the h-prive with a different screen. and if you ever own a h-priv you know they just work and work very well.. In both watts and temp control. So if you are interested in performance go check out a video on the h-prive or xcube ultra. im sure djlsb will have a perforce review on it in the near future. All in all I am very happy with this device it is the perfect on the go device for using tanks at over 75 watts.. the dual battery setup makes it so you don't start having power issues when the batteries start to get low. If you are looking for a on the go dual 18650 I would recommend this device but if you want smaller then the ipv6x is still a smaller device and fits in pocket a little better. Even know I had a small rant about the ipv6x I still love it for it still performs great and a very nice form factor. Anyway I thought i would share my experience on this device for i have fallen in love with it.. But only time will tell how well it holds up but I feel it will hold up just fine.

    Good to hear your enjoying it.

    The Alien is on my radar but I was waiting to hear how people are liking them so thanks for your feedback. I wish they would have centralized the 510 like the IPV6x but you can't always get what you want.

    Nice collection by the way, how do you like the LUX?

    I agree about the center of the 510.. I love that the ipv6x is centered but the alien still fits a 25 mm just fine but you will not be able to go bigger without overhang happening.. As for lux I actually hated it up until they finally released a firmware update.. The firmware update fixed everything I hated about it.. So i like it but in reality if I had to buy it again I wouldn't.. It is nice but it is really just a giant mod. I guess i just prefer smaller mods.. personal opinion..

    The TC on it is performing great.. 400 degrees feels like it should. Vapes smooth in temp.. feels continuous with no break in vapor production.. Basically does temp the same as the h-priv if you own one. I haven't tried any dry burns yet and I probably won't.. I am sure DjLSB will do all that when he reviews it. but so far as for temp goes feels accurate and gives nice smooth vape.

    Kind of jealous.
    I have mine on order (thanks to @SirRichardRear for pointing out that ecig had them in stock last night) but it'll be at least two days before I see it.
    So all I can do is sit here watching yours as I wait for mine.

    I had a package leave Washington, go to Chicago, go to California, go to Virginia, go to Utah, go to Pennsylvania, then finally arrive in Indiana.
    Tracking showed every step along the way 2 days late.
    Tracking finally showed delivered 2 days after I was already using the items.

    I usually get things from Florida faster than LA and I am only 40 minutes from Downtown Los Angeles. Now that vaporbeast uses fedex slowpost it takes anywere from 4 to 8 days to get my orders from them, I am only 90 minutes away........ Just got my lightningvapes order today from Florida, shipped Monday, makes no sense why shipping inside California sucks so bad.

    I agree with the centered 510 one of the reasons I wanted the IPV6,but it looks like it's turning into the new Sigelei 155.
    everything seems good one the Alien so I guess that is the one now.

    Question, when the device is sleeping /screen is off. When pressing the fire button does it instantly start to fire or do you have to press fire to wake up then fire again to actually fire the tank? My hohmtech mods are instant fire, unless off or locked. KBox mini is annoying have to press fire to wake up then press again to fire addy/tank

    Solid mod. Just got one monday. $65 at a b&m. Pics online don't do it justice. Ergonomic and very sharp looking. Some cool bells and whistles too like monitoring the individual batteries. Already want to get another. Nice and compact. Hard-hitting.

    Code3vapor has them in red for $42. Share their page and get another 10% off. Never ordered from them though.

    I love mine... I started with factory buggy firmware, then got a beta firmware from DJLsb that im still using because it performs awesome. SMOK released an official firmware upgrade that fixes the one little bug i have with my current firmware that i leave because i think its funny. lol @ battrey

    I was happy with that price at a b&m.

    Would rather support them. But won't pay double.

    I got my blue one from them for a pre-order price of $49, 2 days later and now $42 :headbang:

    But yes they are a good vendor though, used them a few times and never had a problem with them.

    If you share their website on fb you get a 10% coupon code. You should get a pop up when you go to the site.

    I ended up contacting them, got it sorted out. I did miss out on the blue alien special mainly because I want the kit over just the mod. $42 for just the mod was a super deal for anyone wanting just the mod and in blue.

    I did order some other stuff from them as this last weekend they had a flash weekend sale.

    I am sure in a month the Alien will be cheaper, newer things come out all the time!

    [​IMG] love mine. It takes a lil while to get used to function since the manual is shit but I love it.
    I paid 67 shipped for my kit when it came out
