The RHA 85 Kit By Smok Previewed

The Smok RHA 85 kit is apparently a “New” release from the confusing vape brand Smok.rha 85 poster

I swear I am in “Groundhog Day” – as I recently wrote a preview for the Smok RHA 220W which is basically the Smok Alien mod.rha 85 size

Now I see the RHA 85 and again it is an old kit – this time the AL85! The only new thing I can see is the introduction of a rainbow version?al85 rha 85

So this is an 85W maximum output mod and you will need a single 18650 battery which screws into a compartment on the top of the mod with a cap to secure.rha 85 battery

There are 3 power modes – Variable Wattage, Temperature Control and Memory modes. Plus you get taste modes of Hard, Norm and Soft.rha 85 display

Included in the kit version is the TFV8 Baby tank – which again isn’t the newest version of this – there is a TFV8 Baby V2 in the recent Smok Species kit.

There are 5 colours to choose from – Black/Red, Black/Gun Metal, Prism Chrome/Black, Black/Gold and 7-Colour/Black.rha 85 colours

tfv8 baby tank specsI am so so baffled as to why Smok are renaming old kits?

Is it to meet certain regulations so they can be sold worldwide or something – if that is the case then I totally understand.

Smok is regularly criticised for the speed of releasing kits and how they keep “rehashing” the same old designs – and the RHA 85 and RHA 220W really are not doing their reputation any favours.

If you are an AL85 fan and want a new one then this would be ideal.

Anyway let me know what you think about the Smok RHA 85 Kit in the comments below!

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!


  1. Just got my new RHA85 mod, it is 100% identical to my al85 mod, I have had 4 al85 mods, and this is completely the same. Even the owners manual is exactly the same with just the letters in the mod name changed. I don’t know why Smok did this, but I have seen where the RHA85 is listed as an EU version, whatever that means. Seems silly to me. None of them last very long, so doesn’t matter what it’s called to me, I just wish they’d make them a little more durable. My top and bottom screws on the mod always strip out and then it doesn’t work.

    • Hmm I did hear a rumour that there was something to do with Smok using the “Alien” name – hence later models being re-branded to the RHA?
      Dont quote me on that but seems to make sense!
