SMOK Rigel Kit 230w with TFV9 Tank
Slick, styled and prime for handling, the new innovative Rigel Smok device is the successor to the Smok Alien and perfect for sub-ohm vapers. Focusing on a unique experience, you can get all the key information required using the stunning 0.96 inch TFT colour display. Also, the texture and design with a smooth rubber surface and honeycomb layout are ideal for vaping on the go.
The Smoke Alien updated
With more power, faster ignition times and more features than the Alien, with a smaller more modern and comfortable feel the Rigel takes off from where the Alien left off. Check out our Alien V Rigel information blog to see the Rigel's main advantages over the Alien .
You can hit the UP button or Fire Key to mix it up with styles effortlessly. Created with carbon fibre and stainless steel, it’s built to last and looks the part too, available in four different colours including: black, blue and silver.
How is this powered? You have not one but two external 18650 batteries (sold separately) , giving you plenty of time in the day or at night to vape away. Because of this power, the Rigel mod can fire up to maximum watts of 230, which hits just the right spot for cloud chasers.
If you’re seeking a device which is not just easy on the eye but safe too, it’s equipped with a safety lock feature for the top cap. This not only helps to prevent leaks but protects against children using it as well. Plus, the TFV9 tank provides a slide-to-fill system for your favourite e-liquid refills, which is really easy to top-up.
In terms of power, the 28mm diameter is more than enough to withstand continuous vaping, thanks to its self-adaptive power and USB Type-C charging capabilities. This means efficient performance and safer use. The V9 mesh coils enhance premium flavours and help create larger cloud-forming. Maintain good taste and enhance the vaping experience by adjusting the direct airflow via the ring at the base of the tank.

Your Rigel & leak free vaping
Your Smok device is manufactured with precision so will not leak providing you use the product and parts correctly. Where any leaks have occurred, we have solved almost all by taking the following steps.
- When using the Smok TFV9 tank for the first time ensure all the parts of your tank are tightened properly, this involves finger tightening then an extra 1/16th turn
- Ensure the O-ring seals are correctly in place
- Make sure the coil in the tank is finger tightening then an extra 1/16th turn
- When cleaning or replacing the coil carry out the above procedures.
- Ensure you have the correct temperature/power settings for your particular device. Coils for example have ratings and should be kept within maximum and minimum recommended settings. Too high and your device will pop and crackle which may cause spots of e liquid to escape via the air-intake.
Where product has been returned, we have found that TIGHTENING the PIECES properly resolves any leak issue.

As a result of Smok's ability to innovate with new developments and patented products, the company is known as a sector leader in variable wattage and temperature controlled vape mods and e cigarette devices.
The old Smok Alien, which came out some 5+ years ago was one of the best selling Vape mods world-wide. The new Rigel is an evolution of the Alien and is also set to become a world beater. Smok devices feature as probably the best vape mods in most independent Smok Rigel Reviews showing just how good these products are
Smok was founded in 2010 and is based in Nanshan district Shenzen City, a major worldwide hub of the electronic cigarette supply chain. The introduction of the Smok Alien firmly puts Smok on the map as a major player in high spec. power-vape devices. The Smok Alien is the UK's leading high-spec vape mod.
Great piece of kit. Apart from the first one leaking. But the issue was quickly resolved. Only downfall to it. You must charge on a computer, which I don't have , so I charge it at work,
Purchased after my previous Smok Alien eventually begun to fail. Due to power socket connection failing. This new Rigel is a huge improvement on the Alien in many ways. 1st, the safety lock on the lid is brilliant. Not just for child safety, but the biggest bonus is, when the unit is in your pocket, the lid can't accidentally knock open resulting in all the vape juice running into your pocket and damaging / staining or just making it greasy and horrible. This often happened with the Smok Alien and made a real mess when it did 2nd, the rubber seal on top has a neat filler aspect of having a small slit that your vape bottle just pushes through to fill it up. As soon as you remove the bottle, the opening closes, again, reducing leaks, simple but very effective. It gives you confidence of carrying it in your pocket without the risk of leaks. 3. Easy to use. With only a wattage to set, it's literally plug and play. No complex menues to navigate through, just set your wattage and vape 4. Having a lock feature on the wattage setting avoids those times when it's in your pocket, you accidentally lean on the up button and set your wattage to 200w, only to take a vape and burn your mouth to bits, not to mention the coil. This neat little feature allows you to lock the wattage so you can't accidentally knock or change it unexpectedly. 5. Again, a separate lock for the fire button, just 3 presses to lock it, then 3 again to unlock and vape and it doesn't change the lock feature set in the wattage setting. They are 2 separate locks. 6. Nice feel and grip to the unit. 7. Battery case is much improved on the older Alien. You flick the magnetic side panel off, pop the batteries in then just re attach the cover. No fiddly little door hinge like the Alien which had at times a tendency to pop open, dropping out your batteries or not being able to get it to close and stay closed. 8. Only 2 slight negatives found, one is the vape reservoir is quite small, so your always filling it up. Easily solved however with a larger glass available via pure-eliquids who can send you the link. Then you can still use the same coils with a small adapter. And the other slight negative is you often have to clear the excess condensation at the base before it runs out. I usually just wrap a small but if tissue round the bottom vents and blow down the vaping mouthpiece. This just blows any excess condensation straight onto the tissue so you don't get it leak in your pocket at some point. Would I reccomnded it as a vape - yes, definitely, and would I purchase again, - yes definitely. Hope this helps.
