Smoant RABOX Intro

It’s not often anymore that we see a piece of vaping equipment and say “Wow!”, but that was exactly my reaction after a glimpse of the new Smoant RABOX with it’s open chassis, and futuristic industrial design.

The RABOX sports a hand-crafted, GTA welded, tubular stainless steel frame finished with a high-temp ceramic paint in your choice of black, red, or white. The frame is enclosed on two sides with clear PMMA acrylic panels.

Looking through the PMMA panels you see the battery housing with a prominent Smoant RABOX logo and the PC board. Since the remaining four sides are completely open, the PC board has been sprayed with an ultra thin nano waterproof coating to resist moisture and water damage (it is NOT waterproof). The PCB also features LED lighting that is visible through the acrylic panels during use.

With an internal 3300mAh internal battery the RABOX offers two vaping modes: Constant Voltage (5V) and Soft (full battery output). Selecting the mode is as simple as flipping the external toggle switch on the side of the box.

Smoant describes the RABOX as a “Smart Unregulated Mod” that provides up to 100W of power with protections against low battery, low resistance, over temp and overuse.

Bravo Smoant!

Smoant-Rabox

Call it a paradigm shift, outside the box, cutting edge, or just plain different because any of those aptly describes what Smoant has done with the design of the RABOX.

With its welded tubular frame, exposed nuts and bolts, and open chassis, it’s tough to tell how all of this will play just by looking at the photos, but love it or hate it – the RABOX is undeniably original, and a bold statement from Smoant.

Bravo!

    That’s refreshing. I’m not into unregulated mods but this one I would buy. Looks like a high end PC case. Hope they made regulated version sometime with this design.

    • Gary Joseph

      Nice observation – it does look like a custom PC case.

    They started selling this box at my local B&M shop. People who bought it can’t put it down. The thing does sound like you’re trying to use Morse code when in use, but that’s a minor gripe given the quality. Sadly they’re sold out or I would have one myself since I’m in the market for an unregulated mod.

      Nice to hear folks are digging it. Regarding the Morse code thing: Does it have a high-pitched whine sort of sound when you fire it? I’ve owned PWM boxes that did that – never bothered me.

      • VapesGoodMan

        Just a pretty standard beep. No whine. Nothing annoying. Caught me off guard the first time I seen it fired. Guy just said “lol I can I vape in Morse code” and fired it a few times randomly.
