Smok is a well-known name in the vape product industry. A large number of vape pens on the market today carry their name and this is most likely the reason for the increased demand for high-quality pen-style devices.

The Smok Stick X8 is a simple, easy to use device that has a built-in 3000 mah battery and comes with the TFV8 X-Baby Beast tank. It is perfect for someone who wants huge clouds without the need for a high-powered device.

Smok Stick X8 Testing and Performance

After using this device for a week I was convinced that this was a great device to give to my relatives who still smoke. In terms of performance, the SMOK Stick X8 is one of the easiest to use devices. It has just 1 button and no complicated menus. The battery takes about 4 hours to fully charge and will last the average vaper all day. I had to charge mine twice per day because I am a heavy vaper. It delivers amazing clouds and flavor at an affordable price.

Build Quality and Design

The Smok Stick X8 is sleek and stylish and closely resembles the V8 model. The design and functions are almost the same, except that the X8 comes with the X-Baby Beast Brother tank with the improved M2 coil design that produces clouds upon clouds of vapor.


The body, or battery section, is constructed out of stainless steel and is durable. In the few days I have been using it, it has rolled off my desk at least twice and thankfully shows no signs of damage. I prefer to use tank bands (there is one included in the kit) for added protection. Which is a good thing because the kit does not include a spare glass tank.

Ease of Use

This device is super simple to use. There is just one button for on and off. That is it. This device is perfect for beginners who want big clouds from a small device. It is compact and fits right in your pocket or purse for the commute to work.

Vaping Experience

With so many versions of the Baby Beast tank out you may be wondering how the X-Baby Beast is different from the regular Baby Beast tank.

In the X-Baby Beast, the adjustable airflow is strategically placed at the top instead of at the bottom so there are no issues with leaking from the air holes. Also, the increased airflow and design of the atomizer coil improves vapor production. This baby makes bigger clouds.


This tank is a top-fill design. You press down on the top and it swings out to reveal the juice slot. Fill the tank with juice and close. Very easy to fill and the tank comes apart for easy cleaning as well.


I usually prefer RDAs over tanks because I hate leaky tanks, but I had absolutely no issues with leaking in this one.


Cloud production in this tank is really good. It performs really well for a device that only puts out about 50 Watts. The vapor is thick, dense, and flavorful.


The flavor produced is very good as well. I filled the vape pen tank with my favorite e-liquid and I could taste each element in the juice and it was delicious. All of the flavors come through.


This device is priced at around $30 dollars for the starter kit which in my opinion is a really good deal. It is priced so well that you could pick up one for yourself and one for a friend or co-worker who wants to quit cigarettes.
