SMOK unveils the AL85 Kit, and this xenomorph should look instantly familiar to fans of the Alien 220 mod, with similar design cues that include the signature side-fire switch and detailed OLED display.
Even though the AL85 mod borrows the top battery cap design of the Eleaf Pico, to allow simple replacement of the single 18650 battery, make no mistake: the AL85 is pure Alien.
The AL85 mod delivers 85W of power and features temperature control with TCR, a side USB port, and a large OLED which displays a ton of detailed information in both VW and TC modes, including VW/TC/MEMORY MODE, vaping effect, voltage, battery life, resistance and more.
Nearly identical in size to the Pico, the AL85 mod is a bit wider at 27mm and will eagerly accept any 25mm atomizer that you may want to use, with no overhang. Even so, many will be perfectly happy using the included 3ml Baby tank – the smallest version of SMOK’s hugely popular TFV8 Beast series of sub-ohm tanks. The kit includes two dual core coils, one 0.4Ω rated at 40-80W (pre-installed), and one 0.6Ω rated at 20-50W.
The AL85 Kit is available in stainless steel, black, gunmetal, gold, blue, red, green, and rainbow, at a retail price of $49.95USD.
The AL85 mod is not a 220W Alien, but by bundling an uncompromising 85 watts of power with the Baby Beast, it notches up the performance of the “mini-mod” and packages it in the familiar design of the original Alien.
I expect this little Alien will pack a punch, while maintaining the same level of quality and performance we have come to expect from SMOK, especially their Alien and Beast line of products.
