SMOK OSub Plus 80W

Hey, Everyone!

It’s time for another vape review!

I really took my time getting to know this one. I’ve had it for about two weeks, and, I’ll be honest: It’s now my MAIN mod. No joke. I love it.

I guess you can stop reading right there, if you like. Haha. You already know where this is going…

Once again, I got this mod via Vape NW at a supreme discount. So big thanks to them! They’re not officially sponsoring me in any way, but I love them and gotta give props where it’s due.


Once again, I’m going to copy/paste the specs for this mod from the sales page over on Vape NW, since they did such a primo job writing it up:

As you can see, for such a tiny vape, it’s pretty darn powerful. 80 watts might not be enough for the REALLY hardcore crowd, but I think it will satisfy most “normal” vapers. Personally, I like to “live” at around 45-50W so this was more than enough power for me.

But what are the pros and cons of this vape…?


This vape is the most ergonomically-designed vape I’ve ever owned. It has absolutely NO sharp edges, and fits so comfortably in your hand you won’t quite believe it. Not to mention it just plain LOOKS nice.

The lateral fire button is amazing. You can hold it in pretty much any position you like and fire away. No more fumbling to find a tiny button!

The battery life lasts for a good three hours or so of straight vaping. Not too shabby! I’ve had vapes that have pooped out after about 30 minutes, so this is a huge step up. And the USB charging system makes recharging extremely easy. You can even charge it in your car or your purse if you have a portable USB charging device.

The Brit Beast tank pairs perfectly with this device as well. It’s a large tank that holds just over 3mL of juice.

The Brit Beast features adjustable airflow, a LARGE drip tip, and utilizes the Baby Beast coils — so you KNOW it produces some fat clouds and delivers a heavy “hit.” Plus, those coils are sold virtually everywhere now, so you never have to worry about going without. I dig that.

I also love how LARGE it is and that it’s an easy top fill. You’re SUPPOSED to unscrew the drip tip and drop in your juice through the convenient slots; however, I like to cheat and just remove the entire top piece. When I do that, I can pour in my juice quickly — no dropper needed! — and be on my way. That’s pretty darn cool. But, of course, be careful not to make a mess if you decide to use the “Lauren Vapes” method.


I actually had to think long an hard to come up with ANY cons for this vape. It’s honestly amazing.

However, after much contemplation, I could think of a few things…

The mod itself doesn’t feature a “bypass” mode, so you can’t vape it WHILE it’s charging. If it runs out of battery power, you’ll have to wait for it to recharge. This doesn’t bother me personally, because I just switch over to one of my other vapes while it’s charging up; however, if this is your ONLY vape, that might bug you.

Also, this mod is my first “manly” mod. When I first saw it, I was concerned that it was too big for me! It was a little intimidating at first. For a “smaller” mod, it has a lot of heft. Since I write these reviews from a lady vaper’s perspective, I would say that that’s a drawback at FIRST. But, Ladies, I’d urge you to give it a chance. It might take a little while to get used to — especially when it comes to the Brit Beast’s CRAZY LARGE drip tip — but it’s worth it. (And you can always switch out the Brit Beast tank for something more moderate, if you prefer).

As for the tank, I’d say my main complaint is that sometimes the coils are hard to screw in. I’m not sure if that’s just for MY Brit Beast tank or all of them, but that’s definitely something I noticed. It takes a bit of fiddling around to get it properly in place.

And, of course, like all the “Beast” tanks by Smok: The coils annihilate any juice that’s above a 6mg nic level. If you vape anything above a six, expect your “hit” to be HARSH and taste a bit burnt. However, if you’re vaping zeroes, threes, or sixes, you can expect great flavor and high-end vapor production.


This is currently my main mod. I friggin’ love this thing. I would say it’s a “must buy” for anyone looking for a decent vape. Unless you’re SUPER HARDCORE, this vape will have more than enough power to have a great night of vaping.

Even a beginner vaper can get a lot of joy out of this thing. The wattage goes from one to 80. So literally anyone can grab this thing and start at whatever level they’re comfortable with. That’s pretty darn rad.

It’s comfortable, it’s stylish, and it’s all-around awesome. Highly recommended!

Until next time,
