Smok RPM40 Pod Vape Kit Review

Smok is constantly evolving, and you can see that in the quality of their vaping devices. The Smok RPM40 might seem like just another pod system, but it isn’t. It is a pod system that features the option for both mouth-to-lung (MTL) and direct-to-lung (DTL) vaping, replaceable coils, a refillable tank, and a chunky battery.

Not just that, it is a pod system that utilizes the IQ-R chipset that eliminates the learning curve so new vapers can get the hang of the device in no time. Also, the chip allows a firing time that is less than a second, making it one of the fastest firing pod systems on the market.

Design and Build

The Smok RPM40 measures 25mm x 25mm x 99mm and weighs only 99grams. It is a cube-shaped pod device that is pretty easy to carry around. Its edges are nicely rounded off making it feel comfortable and solid. It is available in bright black, prism chrome, purple-red, prism gold, prism rainbow, white, orange, and green.

It uses a simple fire button that is perfectly placed on the front of the device. Just below the button are the TFT screen and two adjustments buttons. The screen serves the following functions:

  • Battery life indicator
  • The current wattage
  • Puff timer
  • Resistance
  • Voltage
  • Puff counter
  • Screen colour options

At the top of the device is the pod bay where you slot in your pods. Right under that are two-non-adjustable airflow slots that serve as the only air intake. Below the device is a micro-USB port. 

The device utilizes a 1500mAh battery that guarantees to keep you vaping for a long time before you need to recharge. Using the micro-USB port, you can power up the device in about 1.5 to 2 hours


The pods are removable and refillable, and they go into the pod bay at the top of the device. Removing them is simple, you just pull them out and when you are done, they press back into the device without any hassle. The mouthpiece sports an ergonomic curve that is very comfortable when vaping.

It uses a convenient side-fill mechanism. On the side of the pod is a silicone/rubber plug that opens up to reveal the small fill hole. Once you are done filling, close the rubber plug and re-fit the pod back into the device.


The pods inside the kit come preinstalled with standard Smok RPM coils. The 4.3ml pod comes with a 0.4-ohm mesh coil while the 4.5ml pod comes with a 0.6-ohm triple coil. Thanks to the push-fit system, you would not have any issues removing and replacing the coils. The push-fit system uses a tight seal to ensure that there are no leaks and that the coils sit firmly in place. 

The 0.4-ohm mesh coil is a single Kanthal mesh DTL coil hat delivers incredible flavor and a faster ramp-up time. The 0.6-ohm triple coil is also a DTL coil featuring triple Ni-Cr coil integration that delivers excellent flavor and vapor production with a shorter heat-up time. 

Other than the two coils that come in the kit, Smok also has other coil variations designed to be used with the Smok RPM40 pod vape kit. They are the 1.2-ohm Quartz coil and 1.0ohm Single coil. With these, you get to enjoy many vaping styles from just one device. The best part is that these Smok RPM replacement coils are sold in packs of 5 coils for only $12.99 on Atomic Dog Vapor.
