With the arrival of updated and enhanced vaping products, it is refreshing to know that there are still great basic products out there. It is important to consider the basic devices so beginners or newbies can get acquainted with the simple ones. As for simplicity, there are still many tools out there which can compete with the complex builds regarding pricing and even performance. Let’s take a  look at the Smok Stick AIO. It is a recent release and yet, some rank it as one of the best e-cigs available right now.


This vapor pen is manufactured by SmokTech. SmokTech was founded in 2010 with its main office located in Shenzhen, China. They are a subsidiary of Shenzhen IVPS Technology Co Limited, which is world-renowned for their electronic cigarette research and development, production and sales. Since it starts up years, SmokTech has achieved an outstanding name for its high quality, unique innovations and superb customer service. Through continuous R&D, SmokTech products are being enjoyed by over 80 million consumers worldwide. This makes them a first class global brand in the e-cigarette industry within just seven short years.


On most online vape stores, the Smok Stick Aio Kit retails at $21.50. This is what I’m talking about; a competitive price for a basic competitive product.

Design and Performance

The Smok Stick AIO carries out a vape pen style design. My first impression is the look of this device. It looks very sophisticated and sleek. This pen is very sturdy; made from high-quality stainless steel. It is available in several variations such as the black, silver, and gold. It has a 1600mAH battery capacity providing sufficient output resulting to suitable vapor production. You can recharge it via its micro USB port. One full charge is enough to last the whole day.  It comes with a leak-proof built-in glass tank with a 2ml capacity. It is very easy to refill through its top rotary cap. It may have a smaller tank capacity however; what this means is easy access to switch e-juice flavors.

What I also like is how safe this is to use. It has a safety feature such as short circuit protection and has 8 seconds cut off systems. Smoktech ensures to use intelligent LED indicators as part of its advanced technology. The indicator blinks four times when puffing and flashes 15 times for a low battery warning. This means that the voltage is below 3.3V and recharging the battery is needed. With this technology, no need to keep reading on the pen’s stats.

The AIO set-up includes dual coils and an improved wick system enabling us users to produce huge thick clouds while maintaining a very satisfactory flavor. Another important part of the AIO is its airflow system. It is made up of-of a bi-directional 4-hole system. With all these systems in place, the Smok Stick AIO kit makes way for a truly satisfying vaping experience. I say it is very economical and functional to use.

Overall, the Stick AIO has an excellent design suited for beginners and occasional vapers alike. I like how it can still produce dense clouds while I can still taste the robustness of the flavor and throat hit. I usually am not a big fan of Asian (especially Chinese) products, but with how SmokTech designed this device, I was sold. I’m sold on the fact that going back to the basics is sometimes a good thing. It can be a good surprise. Innovation is the key to developing new products but never forget that simplicity is the key to keeping using these products. The Stick AIO kit may be a simple vape pen, but it can compete with other complex builds.
