SMOK just dropped not one but two brand-new pen-style vapes: the SMOK Stick N18 and the SMOK Stick R22. Both sleek, elegant, and super easy to use, these perfectly-portable devices are shaping up to be the next trending vape kit.

New SMOK Vape Pen Color Options

The same color schemes are available for both the Stick N18 and the Stick R22. Opt for something subtle like the Matte Blue or Matte Black, or stand out from the crowd with the gorgeous Matte Gold or SMOK's famous 7-Color design.

N18 and R22 Vape Exterior Features

Let's examine these device's from the outside-in since both the N18 and the R22 are built with the same exterior appearance. The power regulator at the bottom of the device is a numbered dial that allows the user to raise or lower their wattage output. A single power button acts as the firing mechanism and also displays a green, orange, or red LED light to indicate remaining batttery life.

Above the power button is the adjustable airflow dial, which enables the user to fine-tune their inhale. On the opposite side of the pen is the USB charging port. The tank can be unscrewed for coil replacement and features a transparent juice chamber to make monitoring e-liquid levels easy. The tank can also fit 510 drip tips.

Coil Compatibility: Nord and RPM Coils

When it comes to compatibility, SMOK always has a clever plan. These new SMOK Stick don't have coils of their own; instead they're compatible with already-existing SMOK coils. Check it out.

SMOK Stick N18:

The SMOK Stick N18 is compatible with the SMOK Nord coils. Your N18 kit includes a 1.4ohm Nord coil (perfect for MTL vaping, high vapor concentration, and recommended for 12W) and an 0.6ohm Nord coil (designed for sub-ohm style, provides large vapor production, and recommended for 25W).

SMOK Stick R22:

The SMOK Stick R22 is compatible with the SMOK RPM coil series. Your R22 kit includes the DC 0.8ohm MTL coil (for faster heating, huge vapor, intense flavor, and recommended for 16W) and the 0.4ohm Mesh Coil (for enhanced flavor and recommended for 25W).
