West Coast Vape Supply

Our latest entry into the Vaping Guides category is the complete guide to the SMOK Mag Grip Mod, a powerful 100W box mod that’s a branch from the original Mag 220W. Due to the popularity of its predecessor, it was a must that we include as much information about this device as possible since we felt that it’s equally as impressive. If you need help with your SMOK Mag Grip Mod and want to learn the ins-and-outs, this article will serve as an online SMOK Mag Grip user manual.

Update: Hyde has recently released the Hyde Mag Recharge Disposable Vape into their collection of disposable vapes. It provides the same “mag” design in a convenient, portable, and easy-to-use device that delivers upwards of 4500 puffs.

SMOK & The New Mag Grip Mod

Founded as Shenzhen IVPS Technology Co. in 2010, the manufacturer quickly rose to success with its SMOK brand, leaping hurdles, surpassing milestones, and gaining the likes of millions of consumers worldwide. SMOK has been one of the most successful brands in vaping by specializing in electronic cigarette research and development, products, and sales. With 8 years deep, SMOK has a long history in developing many of the industry’s groundbreaking products, from one of the first dual coil cartomizers to the TFV12 Tank, SMOK as certainly progressed. Its latest product to add to its long history is the SMOK Mag Grip Mod, a box mod that’s just as comfortable as it looks and performs extraordinarily well.

About The SMOK Mag Grip Mod

SMOK Mag Grip ModConstructed of a superior zinc alloy material to deliver fascinating durability while maintaining a lightweight feel that’s comfortable for all-day use, the SMOK Mag Grip Mod’s quality is stunning, to say the least. Its appearance is just as impressive, delivering a look a look and shape that resembles the handle of a gun. Nestled in the handle-like device is a sliding battery bay that is revealed once the coil-shaped button lock is pressed, giving it its reference to the magazine of a gun. While its outer shell is highly appealing, the oversized firing switch with a trigger-like design is what brings the whole look to fruition. It’s not only a comfortable firing switch, but it really plays into the whole theme.

The sliding battery bay houses a single 20700 or 21700 battery, and can also house a single 18650 battery with an included adapter. With its power capabilities and the use of an advanced SMOK chipset, you’ll be able to reach up to a 100W output with support of resistances as low as 0.06-ohm. The industry’s greatest tech, which is temperature control, is also equipped and provides support for Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel heating elements with the addition of TCR adjustments. Providing a list of options, there’s also a built-in preheat functionality that allows you to cycle through soft, normal, hard, and max outputs. A micro-USB port is integrated into the SMOK Mag Grip Mod’s body and allows for both charging and future firmware upgrades. To provide superior control over functions and settings, an intuitive 0.66″ OLED display has been placed on the top of the device, providing unique placement and a more comfortable way to monitor and control the Mag Grip Mod. Lastly, take into account that the Mag Grip Mod includes a full protection suite and you’ll feel at ease knowing that you, the device, and the performance it generates will be protected at all times.

What’s Included With The Mag Grip Mod

You can buy the SMOK Mag Grip Mod as a standalone unit or as a SMOK Mag Grip Kit, which will include a sub-ohm tank. You have the choice of either, although most stores locally and online will only sell the kit and not just the mod itself. If you find somewhere that will sell just the mod itself, great, you’re saving yourself a few dollars. However, if you want a new tank anyway and don’t mind paying a few bucks extra, then the full kit is what you’ll want.

Mag Grip Mod FAQS

Why Does My Mag Grip Mod Say “CHECK ATOMIZER”?: Often times you’ll see CHECK ATOMIZER come up on your screen. This is commonly a connection issue. Either your tank is not screwed in enough to make a solid connection, there is no tank/atomizer attached at all, or the coil head isn’t making a solid enough connection to the base of the tank.

How Do I Upgrade My Mag Grip Mod?: When SMOK comes out with an upgrade for the SMOK Mag Grip Mod, you’ll be able to visit their faqs page to download the files for installation. There will be instructions included for the upgrade process as well.

What Are The Best Batteries To Use With The Mag Grip Mod?: While there are many batteries available on the market that perform great, we recommend sticking with a high-drain battery from only a select few brands. Samsung, Sony, and LG are all battery brands that you can trust. In fact, many of the batteries they manufacturer are used in the everyday products we use, such as laptops and other electronics.

Why Did My Mag Grip Mod Turn Off?: There could be a few reasons why your mod has turned off. Firstly, there is an automatic “sleep” feature that’s activated after so many seconds of the device being inactive (you can set the time in the “STEALTH” settings under “screen saver”. To wake the device, press the fire button. Another reason could be that your battery has depleted low enough where the device turns off. The only other reasonable explanation for your device turning itself off is that it isn’t actually off, but may have baccidentallyntly placed in stealth mode.  In this mode, the device is on, but the screen is turned off. To turn the stealth mode off, press the fire button 3 times to enter the menu. Then navigate to “STEALTH” and make sure this setting is off.
