The Smok Scar 18 is a powerful device with a huge wattage range of 1-230 watts. The Scar 18 comes with an IQ-X chip set providing 4 different modes which can be used to customise your vape to your preferences. Modes include temperature control which can be used to provide a consistent flavour experience and also helps ensure your coils last longer.
The Smok Scar 18 is powered by two 18650 batteries which provide the battery capacity you need for a powerful device. External batteries also ensure that you can keep your device on the go with a simple swap of the batteries. The batteries can be charged with an external power charger such as the Intellicharger I4 or by using the inbuilt USB port.
Rated IP67 waterproof, Scar 18 can withstand immersion in water of 15-30 cm for up to 30 minutes. It’s also dustproof and shock-proof to protect against hard usage and accidental drops.
The included TFV9 EU tank comes with a childproof lock and is also designed to prevent accidental opening of the tank cap, preventing e-liquid spillage when being carried around. A gold plated pin increases rub resistance and improves electrical conductivity. The low resistance mesh coils in the TFV9 tank combined with a central airflow slot make it a perfect fit for the power of the Scar 18 mod. A large e-liquid top-fill slot makes it easy to fill the tank.
Who is it for?
The Scar 18 Kit is suitable for experienced vapers who are used to high wattage vaping and can get the most out of the advanced modes available. It is not suitable for new vapers.
The included TFV9 tank works with the Smok V9 coil and Smok V8 Baby coils. The tank is compatible with most 510 mods, but we recommend a mod with high wattage capability to enjoy the tank to its full capability.
The Smok Scar 18 mod will work with tanks that have a 510 fitting, but will need a tank with a wide air-flow and low resistance coils to use at higher wattages.
What is temperature control mode?
In VW mode, the resistance of the coil can change as the coil heats up. In temperature control mode, you set the resistance of your coil. The mod then uses the temperature of the coil to detect any change in resistance, and adjusts the power throughput in order to maintain the resistance and the coil. This leads to a more consistent flavour profile and can also extend the life of the coil you are using.
Can this mod be used with Mouth-to-Lung tanks?
The wide wattage range means this tank could potentially be used as a MTL tank at the low end of its wattage range. However, to enjoy its full capabilities we recommend pairing with a DL tank which is compatible with low resistance coils.
How long do the coils last?
Coil life depends on many factors, including how long you puff for and the wattage you use your coil at. Low resistance coils are used at higher wattages and do not last as long as high resistance coils.
You can extend coil life by priming the coil before usage (see product care), by not going above the recommended wattage and by topping up your tank so that the coil never dries out. With care, Smok V9 coils can last anything from a few days to a week.

WHY BATTERY QUALITY MATTERS
Many customers report experiencing problems with vape devices when using low quality 18650 batteries. These include low power warnings. Please ensure you use reliable 18650 batteries, such as Molicel batteries, or purchase from a reputable supplier.
E-Cigarette Direct cannot guarantee optimum performance when devices are used with batteries purchased elsewhere.
Using Your Tank: Best Practice
Follow these simple steps to get the most out of your tank.
- When filling, always avoid getting e-liquid in the centre tube.
- Don’t hold down the button before inhaling.
- When attaching the coil, screw it in firmly but don’t over-tighten.
- Make sure you use the right power settings. If unsure, check the manual or start with a low power setting and work your way up till you get the right hit.
The Right and Wrong Ways to Treat Batteries!
Battery Safety Information
- Ensure you use the correct charging equipment for your e-cig (see below).
- Charge batteries on a hard surface.
- Turn your battery off when not in use.
- Use damaged batteries.
- Leave charging batteries unattended.
- Allow contact between your batteries and water.
- Carry in a pocket with coins or keys. (The Kbag is a great way to carry batteries securely and safely).
- Expose your battery to sunlight, extreme heat or cold.
For more information see our E-Cig Battery Safety Infographic.
Recommended Charging Equipment
We recommend the Veho Plug Adaptor and the Nitecore Intelli charger (for external batteries). Both are high quality devices from a reputable manufacturer, have performed well in testing and have the right voltage output for e-cigs.
Extending Your E-Cig Battery Life
With regular usage, your e-cig battery will usually last for 3 months, although they can last longer. The following steps can help extend the life of your battery
1. Cleaning your battery terminal. The most effective way to do this is to use a cotton swab soaked in alcohol, but you can also clean it with a tissue or a cotton swab.
2. Keeping your battery charged. Keeping some charge in your battery can extend your battery life, especially if you go for some time without using it.
How To Maximise the Life Of Your Coils
Always allow your e-liquid to soak into your coil for at least five minutes before using it. This will help prevent your coil from burning out.
When you have a more powerful coil, or one with more wicking material, it’s also a good idea to prime it by applying a few drops of e-liquid into the coil holes before filling.
Once you’re using the device, it is important to keep your tank topped up. If the e-liquid gets too low and the coil is exposed, the coil can burn out.
