SMOK Vape Pen 22 Review | 2022 Update


Smok Vape Pen 22 Review

The SMOK Vape Pen 22 is simple in both its design and ease of use. There’s no display or adjustment buttons to worry about. For some, this is ideal, for others, it isn’t quite enough.

We’ve updated the SMOK Vape Pen 22 review from 2021 ready for 2022, to help you decide if it is the next device for you.

In this blog, we will share and review the features of the device. We will also compare the SMOK Vape Pen 22 with the SMOK X-Priv Kit.

  • Sub-ohm vaping

  • Top-fill 
  • Direct to lung
  • Fixed tank bottom airflow system

Sub Ohm Vaping

To start the SMOK Vape pen 22 review it has to be said that it is a great entry for new sub ohmers. It provides a decent cloud and flavor, without too much complexity with buttons and adjustments. 

If you are just getting started with direct to lung vaping and high VG e-liquids, then the SMOK vape pen 22 is an ideal place to start.

Fixed tank bottom airflow system

For some, this will be a pro, for others a con. If you are someone who likes to switch up tanks and airflow, then this isn’t for you.

The tank is fixed to the kit so you will not be able to detach it to switch it out for another. However, if you don’t want anything too complex, then this shouldn’t be an issue.

Micro USB with pass-through

This basically means that you can charge it while you vape. This is a pro for most as it means the vape is never unavailable as it can still be used while plugged in. 

1650mAh integrated battery

This is fairly large for a pen-style device. The battery will take around 2-2.5 hours to fully charge, and should last you the day. However, as with all sub-ohm devices, they do use more power than regular kits. 


When we were writing the SMOK Vape Pen 22 review we stored the device on its side, in our bag, standing up and it doesn’t seem to leak.

The only time you might notice some juice spilling out is when you do the coil change. However, the fact that the SMOK vape pen 22 doesn’t leak when on its side is a real bonus.

No display screen

As we have mentioned in this SMOK vape pen 22 review, there is no display. Displays on kits such as the SMOK Mag Kit indicate battery, watts, resistance and more.

On devices with buttons and screens, you can make adjustments to get the perfect vape. However, the SMOK Mag Kit does come with a higher price tag for such luxuries. 

How does the SMOK X-Priv Kit compare?

The SMOK X-Priv kit is perfect for those who are more experienced sub-ohm vapers. It offers temperature control and 225 maximum watts.

The battery is two external 18650, which some people prefer rather than the internal one. This also will be enough to power those high watts. 

The SMOK X-Priv Kit is larger than the SMOK Vape Pen 22, however, it still fits comfortably in the hand. Being a box mod it will be heavier and chunkier.

If you need something smaller when you are out and about you might consider the SMOK Vape Pen 22 as a second device.

The 510 connection allows you to use various tanks. It does come with the well-loved Prince Tank, which has features to prevent leaking.

The 2inch high definition screen shows battery, puff count, seconds, watts and volts. This can all be tailored to help you find the sweet spot with your vape.

This is an ideal kit if you are looking to upgrade from the SMOK vape pen 22 into something with a few more options to tailor. 

Is the SMOK Vape pen for me?

To wrap up the SMOK vape pen 22 review, here are some final thoughts as to whether this is the kit for you.

YES – If you are new to sub-ohm vaping

NO – If you are a newly quit smoker, you’ll be best off with a mouth to lung kit with a great throat hit, such as the Aspire Pockex or X30 Rover.

YES – If you like great flavor and want something compact

NO – If you want to change your tank and make adjustments. This device is what it is. If you fancy changing tanks and adjusting settings then try the SMOK Mag Kit or the SMOK X Priv Kit.
