    Welcome to the forum.

    Quite a question for those two are very different pieces of kit. The Geekvape would be rhe most versatile in the long run but will also require you to purchase batteries seperately. Possibly requiring the purchase of an external charger as well. Seems to have the same electronics as the indestructable one ( can not recall the name now, its monday...) which does not have an onboard charging facility. Speaking under correction. Also in general, I would stay away from any Smok products but thats just a personal preference.

    Regards, keep us posted.

    The blade looks very good, with more battery options.

    That's like comparing a Ford Figo to a Ranger; they're in different leagues. The one's not necessarily better or worse - although Smok isn't well regarded in many circles - but it's not an easy question to answer without some context.

    The Blade is a lot more powerful and versatile, but as has been said it'll require the purchase of at least two decent batteries and, ideally, a charger. @Raindance the rugged one you're thinking of is the Aegis, which indeed can't charge onboard. However, the dual 18650 Aegis is coming, and that's had onboard charging added.

    @HapticSimian is right. U can't compare the two. Do u plan to use an existing tank or u need a new one ?? 223 watts is a lot of power, most vapers don't go that high.
    Tell us more about ur current vape setup.

    I had a look at some Smok mods today (not to buy). They really look cheap with crappy paint jobs. It screams "made in China". I know almost all mods come from China, but there are some freaking nice Chinese mods. Smok, to me is not one of them.

    I went to buy a smok mod once, thank god I dint order online. The moment I saw the tester piece I changed my mind because the color was awful. One of the worst paint jobs.

    I had the Smok Alien 220W for the entire year of 2017. Never skipped a beat, solid as a rock, except for the paint job. But I stripped the paint off anyway.

    I wouldn't hesitate to get another one.

    I have an iJoy Captain PD270. It comes with 2 x 20700 batteries.
    Rock solid mod. I've seen them for around R 900 - R 1100 at various vendors.
    Batteries last me 2 to 3 days. :)

    Guys... This is a Gearbest employee trying to implement Guerrilla marketing. It is an advertisement strategy concept designed for businesses to promote their products or services in an unconventional way with little budget to spend. This involves high energy and imagination focusing on grasping the attention of the public in more personal and memorable level.

    These new people keep popping up and asking for advice on products and then keep linking to Gearbest ONLY.

    This keeps on happening... How is nobody picking this up?
