Review of the Smoke Guardian

Vaping products come and go, as manufacturers flood the market on a regular basis with all manner of mods and other devices designed to appeal to different segments of the vaping community. Every now and then, however, a product comes along that truly screams “this is different!” That moment is now, and the product is one of the newest offering from Smoktech: the Guardian III. This is a device that hearkens back to more traditional forms of smoking, in those days when tobacco leaf was all the rage and every man of sophistication considered the use of a pipe to be a sign of true noble distinction.

Yes, you read that right: a pipe. This new Smok product is a throwback design that should endear itself to those smokers who long for the old days when tobacco leaf was in vogue and pipes were the preferred smoking device for many people around the world. Of course, this is not your traditional tobacco-burning pipe we’re talking about here; this is the modern age, after all! Instead, this is a finely-crafted electronic cigarette pipe for vapers. In this Smok Guardian III review, we’ll examine what that means and see if the hype surrounding this new offering is even remotely deserved.


What You Get

Smok Guardian 3 kitThe pipe itself is a sleek unit, shaped exactly as you would imagine. Yes, it looks every bit like the pipe your great grandfather smoked back before tobacco became so taboo. In addition to the pipe mod, you also get a 24.55 mm tank, an extra 0.25 ohm coil, a replacement glass tube and adaptor for extending your tank, and an RDA drip tip. In addition, you also receive the standard user manual and that all-important USB cable to ensure that your device is always properly charged and ready to use.


Key Features

First of all, when you get your pipe, you can check its authenticity by referring to the main box label with the reference code. That way you know that you don’t have some sort of cheap knockoff product and can rely on the unit’s quality workmanship. In addition to that handy feature, you also receive a device that you’ll be proud to show all your friends. You get incredible control over your temperature, with 75 watts of power that give you everything needed to enjoy a variety of vaping modes.

The whole thing is powered by a 18650 battery that can be replaced without the need for tools. Wattage output is adjustable, and can range from as low as a single watt all the way up to the device’s full 75W capacity. And you can keep track of all of the details with the unit’s big OLED display screen. There’s even a feature for keeping track of the number of puffs you’ve taken!

There are two cores provided for sub-ohm vaping, and the tank offers just the type of airflow control you need to better manage your vaping volume. The unit offers top filling for your e-liquid, presenting easy access to the device’s 3.5ml storage capacity. And if that tank size isn’t enough to meet your needs, you can always change it out for the 5ml replacement tank that comes with the kit.


Performance Review

Here’s where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. There are eight preset menus to offer more complete control over every aspect of your experience. You can change the wattage and temperature settings, monitor puffs, and manage Bluetooth options. From a performance standpoint, this new pipe device is clearly designed to be user-friendly in every way.

Of course, all of that would be meaningless if the Guardian failed to deliver on what actually matters: flavor and vapor. Here too, the unit more than meets expectation. The comprehensive control allows you to choose from a light amount of extremely flavorful vapor or a high volume of vapor. The good news is that Smok managed to ensure that even that higher vapor rate requires no real sacrifice on the flavor front.


Our Summary

So, what do you actually get with this product? First and foremost, you get a pipe that offers an amazing amount of control over the volume and flavor of the vapor you inhale. That control is housed in a device that is, quite simple, one of the most attractive vaping mods out on the market today – and one that would certainly be a conversation-starter wherever you took it. Most of all, though, you get a product that feels great in your hand, does precisely what it is supposed to do, and is built to last. Quite possibly this could be one of the best e-cigarette products on the market especially if you use to smoke a pipe. The tank is a known product that has had some great reviews, so all in all it is the best pipe like electronic cigarette on the market.
