Reviewer comments on business characteristics

A little less than 100 euros for a mod not exceeding 15 watts?

Heresy will you say to me, but wait to see him ... the Silenius puts everything on his look and he is right!


Yes he has a hell of a mouth! It looks almost like a scepter ... dedicated to the vape!

Do not expect to tickle this toy with subohm, I have not managed to start below 1.1 ohm.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality

mod-silenus-smoktech-18650-basic package

It's beautiful, it's heavy, it's noble ... it has a majestic side, a timeless side ... personally I'm a fan.

Silenius is made of rosewood (please) and stainless steel.

His stud 510 is spring to ensure flush mounting for any occasion, the threads of his bottom cap are simply as silent as a Benedictine sworn to wall in silence.

smktech-silenus-face and back

The bottom cap is engraved with a proud "Designed by Smok" and a "Silenius" of the most beautiful effect!

All together gives an impression of quality that in use proves to be verified.

The mod natively supports an 18650 accumulator, but with an optional "body" an adaptation to the 18350 is possible.

Silenus both topcaps

The Silenius is on the contrary delivered with two top cap of beauty (like the rest), the one on the left is dedicated to EGO atomizers, the one on the right to Atos in connection 510 exclusively.

Reviewer's comments on functional features

Here no OLED screen, in fact no screen at all.

Everything is analog, through the adjustment ring.

mod-silenus-smoktech-adjusting ring

On this last two inscriptions:

  1. Tension
  2. Puissance

We go from variable voltage mode to variable power mode through three consecutive clicks on the fire button.

In the case of the voltage mode, the latter responds with a white flashing, conversely a blue flashing indicates that you have switched to variable power.

This reminder will be effective by an illumination of the ad-hoc color with each press of the fire button ... In this way impossible to get lost.

Finally if you want to pass it in "protection" mode against any unwanted support of the fire button: 5 clicks, and conversely to wake up ... that of the classic.

The Silenius and its ring offer the following pre-set configurations: 5 powers, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 15 watts as well as the corresponding voltages 3.6, 4.0, 4.4, 4.8 and 6.0 volts ... and that's it! But it is so beautiful that it is enough!

Reviewer's comments on conditioning


A black box, sober and elegant, with its foam, will serve as a backdrop for your Silenius!

The whole is accompanied by a manual which although written in the language of Shakespeare, is completely understandable through the diagrams presented.

Nothing to say it's perfect ... it's Smoktech.

The mood ticket of the reviewer

Smoktech delivers us with the Silenius a mod against the current of all the modes and all the technological flourishes.

I do not feel that the vape is totally smooth, but the feeling is very pleasant.

This mod is simply a bubble, a parenthesis, in this crazy world of ours.

He should naturally find acquirer among all lovers of beautiful objects.

Do I recommend it? Yes provided you have a ticket 100 euros too (sigggg! In these difficult times, I am aware that what I just said is limited), because it brings nothing of anything except a look, and an impression of well being that only noble objects can distill ...

Clearly this is the perfect mod for a gift, or to have fun after saving enough.

Looking forward to reading you.
