We’ve reviewed many Smok products already, so we know the company typically makes great stuff. This time around, it’s the Smok Baby 50W that has caught our eye. It looks just like the original Smok Mag, but a lot smaller. Will it be able to perform to the Smok level that we expect, even at this size? It’s time to find out!
The first thought that comes to mind when you look at the Smok Mag Baby is, well, bang bang. Whether you like toy guns or real guns, or none at all, you can’t help but see the resemblance to a firearm. In this case, there’s nothing wrong with that as all we intend to fire is vapour! This vape mod also feels like a gun when you hold it, with its fire button being placed exactly where a trigger would be, along the side. Below that are the +/- buttons and on the front you’ll find the OLED screen. It has a built-in 1600mAH battery, so you won’t find a battery compartment door.
In terms of build, what stands out initially is just how small they were able to make this thing. Even within the mini box mod category, this entry from Smok would dwarf the competition by being well, the smallest. It’s absolutely tiny! The feel is rather good for something so small as well. We found some imperfections here and there in terms of how it was actually put together, so we can’t give it our highest marks. Still, it felt solid and for something this small that goes a long way.
When talking about a vape mod that only puts out 50 watts, we have to temper our expectations a bit. On the other hand, this is a Smok right? We fired it up and tried out different wattage levels to see how it did, and on a whole we were very happy with the results. This Mag Baby put out enough power for the included TFV12 Baby Prince tank that came in this kit. Pairing them up really allows you to maximize the potential of the vape mod, so this was a smart move by Smok.
That being said, this is still a 50-watt vape mod. If you’re looking for huge clouds of vapour you aren’t going to get it with this low of wattage. Yet, you will get pretty decent sized ones. You’ll also get rather superb flavour output from this setup. Credit goes to the Baby Prince and its dual coil design, which is another in a long line of excellent vape tanks from Smok. Performance on a whole was very good. The truth is, when you take into consideration just how small this box mod is, it performs as one of the best gram-for-gram vape mods period.
This is where we were really shocked, because the 50 watt market can be pretty specific. At this range, we are usually dealing with an audience that doesn’t spend much time fine-tuning their vape. Thankfully, Smok has done away with that perspective and included everything you would get in a higher wattage tank. That means along with variable wattage mode, you also get temperature control for titanium, nickel, and stainless steel. As with the bigger Mag and other box mods by Smok, this one has Soft, Normal, and Hard modes. These are there to help you break in a new coil head (soft) or boost your wattage for really low ohm usage (hard).
You can access all of these with the trigger… uhh, we mean the fire button! All the data you need is displayed on the beautiful 0.96” OLED screen. It isn’t a colour screen, but it is crisp and easy to read, plus that saves on battery life. The Baby Prince features that dual coil design and an easy fill drip tip, which we’ll cover in the ease of use section.
Here is a list of the important features:
- 50W Power Output

- Resistance Range: 0.05-2ohm (TC modes); 0.21-2.5ohm (VW mode)

- Internal 1600mAH Battery
- 510 Threading

Ease of Use:
This is an area where the Smok Mag Baby truly does shine. It’s very easy to get into this vape mod and tune it to where you want to be. The menu is intuitive, allowing you to get in and out quickly with your singular goal of great vapour in mind. As mentioned before, this vape mod comes with a built-in battery and that means you have one less moving part to worry about. Simply plug the entire vape mod in to charge, and that’s it.
This kit comes with a great tank in the Baby Prince, which itself is very easy to use too. It features an easy fill drip tip design, which means you simply need to slide the top to the side to reveal the e-liquid chamber entry. To be able to slide the top in the first place, you’ll need to press the safety release button that keeps any e-liquid from accidentally spilling. This is a nice feature from Smok and another in those small touches that go a long way.
The lowest price we found from our list of respected sellers is £49.99, which isn’t bad at all. Remember that includes the tank and the Smok Baby already comes with an internal battery. So this is everything you need to get going, aside from e-liquid. It’s a good price for what you get, especially since it is so compact and portable.
We really liked the Smok Mag Baby 50W starter kit. On its own, the Smok Mag Baby does a rather good job with vapour and a better job with flavour output. It’s main selling point is its size, as there just aren’t that many vape mods on the market that are this small. It does feel at times that you sacrifice for size, such as having an internal battery that is also small and requires at least once charge during the day.
Still, this is a really nice vape mod that is great for beginners. It’s also the perfect option if you need a very mobile box mod to add to your lineup. For those days when you just want something that can fit in your pocket and be almost forgotten, the Smok Mag Baby 50W is ideal. We can see how the Mag Baby would find a place in almost every vaper’s collection of vape mods.
