Smoant Naboo 225W TC Kit Review
Hello everyone! I’m back with another vape review for you all. The review for today is the Smoant Naboo 225W TC Kit. This item was sent to me for review by Smoant which is very cool of them to provide the item for us to discuss here today but won’t affect my opinion of the device.
Smoant Naboo 225W Packaging
The Smoant Naboo 225W comes in a square black box that has a picture of the Naboo kit in silver on the front and a sticker in the top right corner, indicating the color of the kit within. The back of the box has package contents and specs for the mod and the tank as well as Smoant contact info.
Slide the lid off the box and on the top layer Naboo mod, the Naboo tank and a straight glass for the tank. Lift the tray out and you will find your accessories; micro USB cable, a spare coil, separate Naboo user manuals for the tank and mod, warranty and battery safety cards and spare o-rings for the tank.
Naboo Sub-Ohm Tank
The Smoant Naboo 225W TC Kit comes with not only a Naboo mod but the tank is also called the Naboo Sub-Ohm tank. This leads to me typing the word Naboo a lot. Anyways, the Naboo kit comes with a Naboo Sub-Ohm tank. It is a 25mm tank that comes with a pre-installed bubble glass allowing for 4ml of juice and the spare straight glass gives 2ml of juice capacity.
Up top is an 810 drip tip but the style with an o-ring on the drip tip, not the tank. Luckily, it’s a pretty nice looking drip tip so changing it isn’t a big priority to me. The top cap has some knurling that helps you unscrew it to reveal the fill ports. They are large fill ports and recessed into the tank so it doesn’t get messy. The base that you screw the coil into has two massive airflow ports.

The airflow adjusts smoothly and stays firm. The coils screw into the center of the base in regular sub-ohm tank fashion. Once you install a coil, pick either the straight glass or the bubble glass depending on what you like and screw it all together with the top cap.
This Naboo Sub-Ohm tank has a new coil with it. That’s a 0.18-ohm mesh coil. It’s rated for 40-80 watts and has some unique triangular wicking ports come to a tip at the bottom. The other coil that’s included is a 0.17-ohm mesh coil rated for 60-100 watts.
Smoant Naboo Mod
So, the new bad boy from Smoant is the Naboo. What we have is a dual 18650 device that vapes wattage mode from 1-225 watts in power mode, does TC for NI, TI, and SS. Smoant TC is very nice in my opinion. Also, a staple of Smoant mods is the wattage curves feature which really allows you to fine tune your vape.
Let’s go over the details of the Naboo. On the top is a center mounted, spring loaded 510. The 25mm Naboo tank fits well on the top and leaves a little bit of space. My 28MM Fatality RTA goes slightly over the edge of the top but doesn’t overhang off the side of the mod because it concaves outwards slightly. So, what fits on the top is up to you. Some will say 26mm but in my opinion, 28mm seems to be the largest size you would use on it.
Around to the back is the battery cover which has a fancy familiar pattern on it, like the Charon Mini. On the bottom, there is plenty of venting and a little notch to pry off the battery door. The inside of the battery door has a coating to make sure a tear in your batteries won’t short the battery cover.
Smoant Naboo Mod Continued
On the inside, the battery compartment is extremely clean and well put together and has positive and negative clearly marked in white. No ribbon necessary, just load batteries onto the spring loaded contact side and it’s easy to install and remove them. The battery door holds in place very well and has no movement when on the mod even when trying to wiggle it.
The right side of the mod simply has a USB port near the bottom of the panel. On the left side is a large fire button and just below is a smaller button for making the screen go stealth or making the adjustment buttons appear. Yes, I said, “appear”.
On the front of the Naboo mod is a 2.4-inch beautiful color screen which had multiple UI, multiple wallpapers and the ability to add your own pictures as wallpapers or screensavers. If you’re familiar with the Smoant Charon Mini that real-time displays it picking up music or your voice. It’s cool looking but isn’t my everyday IU.
Below this sweet 2.4-inch screen is a set of touchscreen buttons which can be made to appear or disappear with the small button under the fire button. Holding this side button down for two seconds also enters or exits stealth mode, making the screen and buttons completely black out. These buttons also appear in music mode and go crazy showing different colors. The corners of the mod are all rounded and the front and back are slightly concaved outwards, giving the mod a very comfortable feel in the hand.
Smoant Naboo 225W TC Kit Performance
This Naboo kit is sweet. There isn’t much a person can honestly complain about. I’ve used this kit EXTENSIVELY since I got it and I’m late on this review because life has hit me like a Mac truck the past few months.
I’m still on the first coil I installed, the 0.18 ohm 40-80 watt coil. I did pick the straight glass to look sleeker but I’ve refilled this tank countless times. I’ve let it sit for a week and it didn’t leak. And when I started using it again, it still tastes fine. These coils and the tank work great in my opinion. On to the mod, the Naboo.
This thing is super responsive. Fires up very fast. The screen looks fantastic and has multiple UI or user interfaces. It definitely can make anyone happy with how their mods look. It has the most secure battery cover over ever seen and the rounded corners to make it feel super comfortable to hold.
This Smoant Naboo 225W TC Kit is fantastic in my opinion. I may have a special place in my heart for Smoant because the Battlestar was the most well made, durable mod I owned in 2017. Devices like the Smoant Naboo make me wonder, “how much nicer can it get”? I feel like I’m holding an electric device on pat with my cell phone or any other high-end electronics.
The only issue I had was accidentally hitting the screen lock button occasionally. So, vape it and feel haptic feedback in my hand and realize the screen is on. Once I realized what was causing it, I hit the fire button higher up and it doesn’t happen anymore.
If you’re looking for a dual 18650 mod and your using 28mm or smaller attys, then you can’t go wrong here.
