SMOK Stick One Plus Kit – New Sub Ohm Vape Addition
The SMOK Stick One Plus is a new addition to their impressive product offering and the first ‘vape pen’ style device that they have done for a long time.
There seems to be a growing trend from e cig companies going back to the vape pen style devices as opposed to the onslaught of vape box mod releases.
The SMOK Stick One Plus, however, is not necessarily an e cig for new users as the Innokin Endura T18 is. This is a sub ohm vaping device that in keeping with SMOK’s philosophy on tanks provides numerous coil head options including an RBA head.
This was sent by SMOK for the purposes of this review, as always my views are my own.

Design & Build Quality
The battery in the SMOK Stick One Plus kit is called the eGo Cloud Plus battery. It is rated at an impressive (for the size) 2000 mAh and operates at 3.4V-4.2V.
First impressions when this comes out of the box is what a chunky little device this is. It looks great.
It’s pretty much an eGo battery on steroids, this is the mod that no ego / Ce4 tank setup wants to be sat next to.
Add to the chunky build a great quality build and this is a serious bit of kit.
In the hand it has a nice weight and a silky smooth finish. The fire button has a very slight movement to the touch but doesn’t rattle when not being pressed. The micro USB port is located on the back of the battery so it can be stood up to charge.
SMOK TFV4 Micro Tank
The TFV4 Micro has taken all the best features from the excellent TFV4 tank, updated them and miniaturized the coils and all.
Again, design wise this tank looks great and the twist top fill is well designed with a silicone fill hole that allows different sizes of e-liquid dripper tips to fit into the hole reducing any spillage on top of the tank.
The same mouthpiece is also used with it’s double layered construction with a Pyrex inner tube and stainless steel on the outside. This does a very good job at reducing ‘heat up’ of the mouth piece making for a comfortable vape.
There are 4 airflow holes that are fully adjustable by rotating ring so your vape can be adjusted to your liking.
The tank can also be fully broken down for easy cleaning.
The Smok TFV4 Micro tank fits perfectly on top of the battery providing a sleek looking device.
How Does The SMOK Stick One Plus Kit Perform?
The Stick One Plus isn’t like your standard box mod with it’s multiple settings. It’s simply a case of filling your tank, waiting 5 minutes for the coil heads to soak up your e juice and away you go.
As with the SMOK TFV4 and it’s multiple coil options, the Micro aims to offer the same.
Current Available Coils
- Micro CLP2 – 0.3 Ohm Micro Fused Clapton Dual Core – Recommended wattage 30W-60W (Included in kit Pre Installed)
- Micro STC2 – 0.25 Ohm Stainless Steel Dual Core with temp sensing capability – Recommended wattage 30W-60W (Included in kit)
- Micro 1.2 Ohm – Single Clapton coil – Recommended wattage 18W-40W – Mouth to lung coil – (Available separately)
- Micro 1.8 Ohm – Single Clapton coil – Recommended Wattage 15W – 30W – Mouth to lung coil – (available Separately)
RBA – Come with pre built coil, screws, cotton and screwdriver
- Micro R2 – Pre installed Dual Clapton coils – Dual coil builds
- Micro RCA – Pre installed 0.62 Ohm single Clapton coil – For single coil builds
The coils are of course a lot smaller than the original TFV4 so no cross compatibility here.
One thing I can see, if the TFV4 is anything to go by, is that there may be plenty more coil options to come.
Here are the coils I have used so far.
With Glas Pound Cake E Juice in the tank the 0.3 Ohm coil with fused Clapton coil was the first I tried. Mainly because it was already pre installed!
The flavor from this coil is superb. I have vaped pound Cake in a number of tanks and this is up there with the best of them. The Stick One Plus/Micro TFV4 combination provides just the right amount of warmth to get the best out of this dessert e juice flavor.
Cloud production is about right for my personal preference but you aren’t going to win any cloud chucking comps with this.
Excellent results from this coil.
While the flavor for me was still very good with the 0.25 stainless steel coil, it didn’t quite reach the level of the Micro CLP2 coil head above. Produced some impressive clouds.
Micro 1.8 Ohm
This single Clapton coil is said, by SMOK, to be best for mouth to lung vaping for use at lower wattage’s. On the SMOK Stick One Plus, for me, this coil was just an OK performer.
The flavor didn’t come close to the Micro STC2 or the Micro CLP2 coils and strangely there didn’t seem to be enough power going to the coil. I did try this tank/coil on the K Box 70W and around 23W I found things improved a fair bit.
While it is possible to vape mouth to lung as they say I would probably advise getting a narrower 510 mouthpiece to use rather than the one supplied. That is of course mouth to lung is important to you.
Micro R2 RBA
I only used the pre installed dual coil Clapton coil with the RBA deck so can’t comment on how easy it is to build on but if the original TFV4 R2 is anything to go by it will be a good starting point for those new to RBA’s.
Performance was very good with both flavor and clouds.
The numerous coil options will keep any avid vaper busy for months to come. SMOK have definitely nailed coil performance in most of their vape tanks and the Micro TFV4 is no different.
What I Like
The build quality is excellent and the chunky build sites in the hand well making a great looking vape device.
The numerous coil options should suit all vaping preferences with the RBA coils offering vapers the chance to create their own coils. The Micro CLP2 coil head in particular I found gave outstanding flavor.
Top fill is super easy to use on the go.
What I Dislike
There really isn’t anything major that I dislike about the SMOK Stick One Plus. The only obvious thing would be that vapers looking for more control over their voltage/wattage won’t be suited to this. For me though the performance was still excellent.
The TFV4 Micro tank is 24.5mm diameter so if you are considering using this tank on any other vape mods you will get a little overhang as the standard size mod is built to accommodate a 22m wide tank.
The only other thing, that is to be expected, is that the Micro CLP2 dual fused Clapton coil does like a drink!
Final SMOK Stick One Plus Review Verdict
I wasn’t sure how I would like the Stick One Plus when I first added it to my list for review.
I have to say though I am a big fan.
While the eGo Cloud Plus battery looks like an eGo on steroids, paired with the SMOK TFV4 Micro it looks the part.
The SMOK TFV4 Micro is easy to use and the 3.5ml capacity is decent although the coils are quite thirsty. Top filling is easy to use though so refilling can be done in a flash.
A great vape pen option, albeit a beefier one than you might be used to. If you are looking for a device with flexible options then the SMOK Stick One Plus is an excellent choice.
- Great build quality, looks great and feels good in the hand
- Top fill on the TFV4 Micro tank is simple to use
- Numerous coil options including RBA’s
- Micro CLP2 coil offers superb flavor
- Some of the coils can be a little thirsty
