One of a string of new box mods from Smoktech, the T-Storm is a powerful 230w device with metallic designer chassis. Available for some time in the USA already, will you be able to buy it in the UK any time soon?

If you haven’t already seen it, the Smok T-Storm mod is one mean looking vape mod. Already selling like hot cakes across the pond, this stylish looking box mod has a large TFT screen, metallic chassis and pop-culture design. Along with the D-Barrel mod and Smok A-Priv, the T-Storm has so far only been on limited release in America.

This may be good news for US vapers, but here in the UK, we’re left wondering why. This collection of 3 new box mods are not even showcased on the Smoktech website. As a result it’s a little confusing as to what is going on.

Smok T-Storm: Already being labelled the stormtrooper mod.

When you have a good look at the mod chassis design you can immediately see similarities between the head mask of a stormtrooper and the front of the mod. We’ve included a picture of a metallic gold stormtrooper below.

Many vapers have likened the T-Storm mod to the metallic stormtrooper design.

Pay particular attention to the section under the eyes of the stormtrooper, across the bridge of the nose. If you look at the panel design directly under the TFT screen on the Smok T-Storm mod you see that the shape is remarkably similar. plus you’ve got the metallic finish. Just look at the gold mod below then at the gold stormtrooper.

This is just speculation, but either Smok have done a deal to get this design approved, or they are sailing insanely close to a copyright lawsuit. I mean, they’ve even put the word storm into the name of the mod. This kind of infringement may get a pass in wild west China, but in America? Something’s going on.

The 230W Smok T-Storm mod is available in the USA but not the UK.

As you can see in the image above Smok have released a number of colour finishes for the T-Storm mod. It’s possible they just can’t get copyright approval for the UK if they’ve done a deal for the US.

Irrespective of the speculation, it is really annoying for Smok to have done this. So, in answer to the question as to whether this powerful new box mod will be available to buy in the UK? We just don’t know!
