Minos is a famous Greek legendary character and is Zeus’ son and apparently the Crete’s very first king. It is easy to see that SMOK and the rest of the Chinese characters are big fans of Greek names as evident in their lineup of products including Atlantis, Triton, Pegasus, Zephyrus and more. It seems that they adore connections with the culture from Europe and specifically the mythological and larger than life characters of the stories of ancient times.
It could be because customers in the United States and Europe feel an attraction to these associations or maybe they don’t even have any idea on what these are all about.
Whatever it could be, the SMOK Micro One 150 Kit with its Minos tank is a great looking combination, whether you are familiar with Minos or not.
The SMOK Micro One 150 Kit is a small yet remarkably portable and powerful vape mode coming from one of the industry’s leaders, SMOK. The R150 Micro One 150 offers as much as 150W of power and this is the reason why this has been combined with the extremely versatile Minos tank. The kit comes with the Mino atomizer tank, R150 mode, a USB cable, two coils and several spare parts. While it acts and looks tough and can stand up to everyday use, the biggest surprise is the softness of its exterior.
The mode itself has a measurement of 50 x 26.5 x 77 mm which makes it remarkably compact for something that comes with an extensive capacity of output. This has a weight of less than half one pound which makes it even more amazing.
Its Minos tank is a bit wider compared to most tanks with the diameter of 25 mm yet this width is what allowed the company to make the tank shorter. Its height is 49 mm and can hold e-juice of 2.5 ml. It results to an overall 126 mm.
Resistance and Power
Once you have successfully set up the kit for SMOK Micro One 150 as instructed by the company, you can expect for a power range of 6W to 150W. its voltage spectrum runs from 0.3 to as much as 8V. The system has the ability to handle extremely low resistance of 0.08 ohms to 3 ohms which will depend on your setting.
Minos atomizer tank that is re-buildable has a fused Clapton dual core of 0.35 ohms pre-installed together with an alternative RBA coil of 0.3 ohms.
The SMOK Micro One 150 Kit has a built in battery of 1900 mAh which is basically a pair of batteries of 22500. On the official website of the company, they got more specifics if you are curious to know how this equates to the capacity of 1900 mAh.
The company makes use of the similar design for the mouthpiece on the Mini and Nano tanks. This is black, triangular insulated piece that is protective and soft at the same time. You don’t have to worry about burning the tender skin in your lips once you puff on the thick and hot vapor. At the same time, the shape is also made ergonomic for the mouth as compared with the cylindrical drip tips of any width or height. Aside from that, the removable piece can also promote the creation of thick vapors.
Gold or Red
The Minos tank is no doubt a very stylish addition to all versions of R150. Choose a glass tank that has stainless steel caps of silver or red with a gold accent. Silver is possibly more legendary in terms of appearance although red is appealing and shiny as well.
The airflow control can be found on the bottom while the other tanks have their airflow control found on the top like majority of tanks do. While it is a matter of preference when it comes to airflow orientation, you should still need to pair mods and tanks with a close eye on the power.
The performance of SMOK Micro One 150 Kit is great and is everything that you could ever ask for. Firing is also instantaneous without any delay. The factor clearo head that comes with the Minos tank will not be able to handle over 80 watts so the additional 70 watts that the mod can get give additional headroom. Its RBA deck can also perform remarkably well at the more moderate wattage of 40 to as much as 60 watts.
Its temperature control can also allow the industry standard and expected three types of wires namely stainless steel, titanium and nickel with the adjustable TCR values and offers a good quality of TC vape.
It is also relatively hassle free and quick to recharge through USB. Another extra bonus is the upgradable firmware of the mod through the USB port even though there are still no updates released by SMOK aso of this writing.
- Short profile
- Power of 150 watts

The Not So Good
• Not as heavy duty as the rest of the products from SMOK
The Bottom Line
For an intermediate vaper who is after a high power setup within an extremely compact, USB-recharged and all in one package, the SMOK Micro One 150 Kit will definitely pose a considerable appeal. The only concern of some users is the length of time that the R150 box mod can hold up under regular use. It could prove to be reliable and sturdy or it could not as time will only be the one to tell it. Per se, the SMOK Micro One 150 is not necessarily a starter kit. Instead, this is for the users who have enough experience when it comes to vaping and would like to go for a setup of higher power but with no need for them to buy individual components. If this sounds like you, then, this is something you should try.
