SMOK just keeps on producing more kits. Not everything this year has been stellar, but they nailed it with this one. It’s priced at ~$65 which is fair for what you get, but that is based on the market right now. It makes me a little ill thinking about the price I used to pay for gear that couldn’t hold a candle to this.
The OSUB Plus Kit featuring the Brit Beast tank is the 80W/TC big brother to the OSUB 40W, and the Brit Beast is the more-power-hungry version of the Brit Flavor Tank. It’s a really nice kit, but there are still some things you should know. Let’s get to the review and see what’s what with the OSUB Plus kit.
The OSUB Plus has 80 watts of power, TC settings for Ni, Ti, and SS with adjustable TCR, and a non-removable 3300 mAh battery. The temp range is 200F-600F (100C-315C). There are also a heat settings for soft, min, max, hard or normal. Watts are adjusted in .1- or 1-watt increments, either by clicking the firing bar once (.1) or holding it (1 watt). It’s firmware upgradeable via a USB-port on the bottom display side of the mod. Unlike the OSUB 40W, you won’t have to remove the firing bar to access it.
The firing bar on the OSUB is not like the firing bar on the X Cube series. It has a very short throw (little effort to click) and the clickable portion is about 3/4 of the entire bar, starting from the top going down. The +/- buttons are little ball bearings are easy to use and feel.
The entire body is stout but hefty. It’s comfortable to hold in the hand being that it’s built on a c-frame. And the firing bar is polished which has an amazing contrast to the matte finish of the zinc alloy body. Lastly, the atomizer platform is 24 mm in diameter, which makes the Brit Beast sit flush and look clean.
The Brit Beast is a flavor and vapor producing machine! It is a top-fill tank with 2 mL of juice capacity and a V-shaped drip tip. The tank isn’t the most wide open for max air, but it’s comparable to the Baby Beast. The Brit Beast has two 1.5 mm x 12 mm air-slots controlled by a removable ring. And you fill the tank by unscrewing the V-shaped drip tip. The coils that come with the Brit Beast are Baby Beast compatible. Installed is a V8 Baby-Q2 Core (0.4-ohm dual coils) coil that SMOK recommends using at 55-65 watts.
Feels very comfortable in the hand
Awesome to use the fire bar
Loads of options
Nice clicky button
Short throw to the button
Fantastic flavor with the Brit Beast
Baby-Beast compatible coils
Sleek and simple design to the tank
Feels like a left-handed mod
A bit heavy
Need to lock the mod before pocketing
Spitty after refill
Difficult to refill
Can be clumsy to install a new coil
This kit performs and looks incredible. I have never considered SMOK products to be such “lookers”, but this mod is different. I would never imagine it only costs $50, and that includes the tank! Great value.
The OSUB Plus Kit is a nice kit with a couple minor quirks. Even still, this is an easy recommendation for those in the market for this kind of kit.
