SMOK Spaceman Prism Vape Review

SMOK has long been known as the maker of the world’s most popular refillable vaping devices and accessories. In terms of pre-filled devices, though, they’ve largely remained out of the fray until fairly recently. Things never stop changing in the vaping industry, however, and it’s becoming increasingly clear that disposable vapes aren’t just a temporary trend and aren’t going away.

Well, SMOK disposable vapes are finally here, and the company’s new Spaceman line is leading the way. These devices are modern and stylish, and they feature great performance along with some seriously creative flavors.

How do SMOK Spaceman vapes stack up with the most popular disposable vapes on the market? That’s what you’re going to learn as you read our expert review.

What Features Make SMOK Spaceman Vapes Unique?

There’s an enormous number of disposable vapes on the market today. Most of the well-known vape manufacturers have gotten in on the action at this point, and lots of new brands have appeared over the last couple of years as well. Increasingly, it’s becoming difficult to tell the various devices apart on any basis except appearance. On the surface, it often seems as though they’re all basically the same from a technological standpoint.

If you look a bit deeper, though, there are some concrete factors that differentiate the different brands of disposable vapes. Here’s what makes SMOK Spaceman vapes special.

  • SMOK Spaceman vapes are made by a company that’s been universally regarded as the vaping industry’s top hardware manufacturer for more than a decade. You can definitely be certain that you’re getting reliable, top-quality hardware here.
  • Many SMOK Spaceman vapes offer advanced features like mesh coils, adjustable airflow and even adjustable power, so you can experience exactly the flavor quality and intensity that you prefer.
  • The designs of the devices are absolutely fantastic. That’s especially the case with the eye-popping Spaceman Prism 20K, which features a full-screen display just like what you’d find on a full-fledged vape mod.
  • The adjustable wattage of the Spaceman Prism 20K also deserves special attention. By clicking the button on the bottom of the device, you can switch between three vaping modes of 15, 18 and 20 watts. To support these higher-power vaping modes, the Spaceman Prism 20K has a battery with a capacity of 1,000 mAh and provides significantly more vaping time than you’d get with most other disposables.

How Do You Use a SMOK Spaceman Vape?

To set up and use a SMOK Spaceman vape, just follow these steps.

  • Remove the Spaceman vape from its outer box and remove the device from the inner shipping pouch.
  • Remove the cap from the mouthpiece.
  • Puff on the device to vape.

If you’ve never vaped before, it’s important to remember that a Spaceman vape has a high-nicotine e-liquid and is designed to provide the same satisfaction that you’d get from smoking a cigarette. Vaping doesn’t feel like smoking, though, because you’re not inhaling harsh smoke. For that reason, some people end up vaping much more often than they would have smoked. If you do that, your device won’t last very long, and you’ll also consume more nicotine than you need. When you use your Spaceman vape, try your best to vape only when you would have smoked.

As you use your Spaceman vape, the screen will display the battery’s status along with an estimate of how much e-liquid remains in the device. When the battery meter is empty, you’ll need to charge the device and can do that by connecting it to your computer with a USB-C cable. Depending on which Spaceman model you’re using, charging will take around an hour or a little more.

When the e-liquid meter is low, your device is nearly out of e-liquid. You should plan to replace it soon.

Depending on which Spaceman vape you’re using, your device may have some special functions. Here’s how to use them.

  • To switch between different power levels, press the button on the bottom of the device.
  • To enable or disable the lights on the side of the device, hold the button.
  • To lock or unlock the device, press the button three times.
  • To adjust the airflow, move the tab on the bottom of the device.

What Are the Best Spaceman Vape Flavors?

Some of the popular Spaceman vape flavors include Triple Strawberry, Dark Grapefruit, Blue Razz Ice and Apple Kiwi Ice.

SMOK offers a selection of 37 flavors between the two Spaceman vape models. They’re mostly unique, although a few options are repeated across the models. You’ll need to try both devices if you want to experience the full range of flavors, though, and here are several of our favorites.

  • Berry Cake: A mix of juicy, sweet berries layered over a fluffy cake base. This is an absolute must if you enjoy dessert-themed flavor profiles.
  • Blue Razz Ice: This flavor profile is a bona fide classic of vaping, and just about every company that makes a disposable vape has a blue razz ice flavor on offer. We love SMOK's rendition of this flavor profile, which has just the right amount of sweetness and coolness to give you a totally authentic "blue slushie" experience in vapor form.
  • Polar Ice: If you’re tired of menthol e-liquids that claim to be cold but are actually just barely cool, Polar Ice is a flavor that you’ll definitely want to try. It’s got a crisp peppermint backbone and plenty of menthol to keep your mouth and throat feeling cool and totally refreshed.
  • Rich Tobacco: Try this one if you’re tired of today’s sweet vape juice flavors and want to get back to basics. It’s got all of the smooth, nutty richness that you’d expect of a premium tobacco e-liquid along with just a hint of sweetness that brings the whole flavor profile together.
  • Triple Grape: The people at SMOK really like their “Triple” flavors, and we can definitely see why because Triple Grape is yet another masterpiece. It’s a super-strong blast of bold, sweet grape, and you’re really going to love it if you’ve tried other grape-flavored disposables and found them a bit too mild.

Spaceman Vape Isn’t Working? Here’s What You Should Do

The Spaceman Prism 20K offers three different vaping modes.

Now that we’re nearing the end of this review, it’s time to leave you with a few useful tips that will come in handy if your Spaceman vape isn’t working correctly. If you’re having trouble with your device, here’s what you should do.

  • Spaceman Vape Isn’t Charging: When you connect the Spaceman vape to your computer, the battery meter should light up to let you know that the device is charging. If the device doesn’t respond when you connect the cable, try a different power source. Avoid using a mobile phone charger, though, because the higher charging amperage creates a risk of overheating. If that doesn’t work, try charging the device with a different cable and make sure that the charging port is clean.
  • Spaceman Vape Isn’t Working: If nothing happens when you puff on your Spaceman vape, start by making sure that the battery is charged. If you can’t charge the battery, refer to the tips above to troubleshoot that issue. Press the button three times to unlock the device. Make sure that the airflow isn’t completely closed. Try puffing a little harder in case your device’s airflow sensor is stuck.
  • Spaceman Vape Tastes Burnt: If your Spaceman vape tastes burnt every time you puff on it, it is most likely out of e-liquid and needs to be replaced. That can be the case even if the meter says that the device still has vape juice left. Remember that the device doesn’t actually know how much e-liquid is remaining, and what’s shown on the meter is only an estimate. If your Spaceman vape tastes burnt intermittently, try waiting a little longer after each puff to give the wick time to refresh itself.

Wrapping Up: SMOK Remains a Leader, Not a Follower

Overall, we're big fans of the SMOK Spaceman series -- especially from the standpoint of appearance. If you've ever wanted to use a device that combined the features of a full vape mod and the convenience of a disposable, this is definitely it. We also love what SMOK has done in the area of flavor development. Although the Spaceman vapes certainly have a few flavor profiles that you've seen elsewhere, they also have several that you've most likely never experienced before -- and that's what's going to keep you coming back.
