The SMOK Morph 219 Vape Starter Kit w/ TF Sub Ohm Tank is the latest powerhouse mod from popular vape company SMOK. Friendlier than the Alien, smarter than the V8 Beast Plus, the SMOK Morph is big step-up from its predecessors. This powerful mod combines a max wattage of 219w with a generous 6ml TF tank, but that’s just the beginning.
What puts the Morph over the top (even for SMOK) is the 1.9-inch OLED screen that lets you set personalized customizations for power, temperature, and even the name and nicotine strength of your vape. Best of all, you get huge vapor clouds and amazing flavor.
After having reviewed so many pod vapes, it was a joy to receive the SMOK Morph Starter Kit. While vape mods may not be for everyone, cloud chasers and any vaper tired of overly complicated touchscreens will appreciate this innovative device. Our step by step guide makes it even easier to customize all your settings.
SMOK does know how to design a featured-packed vape mod inside and out. Not only is the Morph sturdy, it’s visually stunning.
The face of the mod is covered with a smooth resin panel available in the usual five swirling colorways. SMOK’s resin panels are becoming a company trademark. You’ll see the same choices on the Nord pod vape, the Trinity Alpha and the Mico. While it can get a bit repetitious, SMOK’s in-stock panels do keep the prices down. Unique to the Morph is the 510 drip tip that matches the resin panels of the mod. The other side of the mod features the highly-intuitive touchscreen.
Weighing 233 grams (with tank) the Morph 219 certainly isn’t a lightweight, but what it lacks in portability it makes up for in power. Trust me, you won’t want to put it down.

Steps for Setting Up the SMOK Morph 219
There are so many features packed into the Morph, (including auto-lock modes), setting up the mod does takes a bit of know-how, so we’ll lay it out step-by-step.
1 – Charging the Device
The Morph 219 combines the power of two 18650 batteries with a new IQ-S chip that makes squeeze-firing your mode lightening fast – at a speed of 0.001 second.
First, you have to make sure you have the correct batteries and that they are fully charged. Insert them into the battery door and put the battery on the charger. The OLED screen will light up, and voila, you’ll see an image of your batteries’ charge progress. Once they’re charged you can fill the tank, attach it and start the device.
2 – Using the New Color Touchscreen
Since the firing bar is integrated into the design it isn’t exactly obvious that you have to press the bar 5 times to activate the Morph. I have to admit, I spent several frustrating minutes hitting the lock button/secondary key instead. Duh.
Successful activation immediately takes you to the Home Screen. From here you can customize your vape settings, but you first have to unlock everything. The device is very child resistant.
- 3 Clicks on the Fire Key Bar Unlocks the Fire Key.
- 1 Click on the Lock Key Brings up the Home Screen
- 1 Long Click on the Lock Key unlocks the Lock Icon so you can start entering customizations .
- Touch the icon in the upper left corner of the screen to get to the settings screen.
When you select the Mode Screen, you’ll see that the default setting is for WATTS.
The Morph Kit ships with 1 BF-Mesh Coil 0.25 ohm Coil Head (Pre-Installed) and 1 BC-Mesh 0.35 ohm Coil Head. Use the default Watts Mode for these coils. You also have the ability to fine-tune the Preheat level to Soft, Normal and Hard.
If you are using other coils, you can set the mode to Temp Ti (for Titanium coils) Temp Ni (for Nickel Chrome coils) and Temp SS (Stainless Steel coils). While in TCR mode you’ll get temperature ranges from 200F to 600F.
Dealing with the Auto Lock Key for Vaping
If the screen times out and you hit the Fire Key, you’ll return to a locked home screen. This means your settings are locked in, but your ability to vape can also be locked!
Click the Fire Key Three Times. Now you can vape.
How to Stop the Auto Lock Feature
The Auto Lock Feature only locks you ability to vape. It isn’t in any way related to Lock Icon on the home screen, which deals with your settings. The settings will always lock when the screen times out.
That said, you can turn off the Auto Lock permanently. I found it by going to Home Screen/Setting/General/Accessibility. When Auto Lock is turned off you’ll always be able to vape…even if the screen times out.

Setting the My Mode Feature
Once you’ve set all your preferences you can save them with the My Mode Feature.
The Morph gives you four modes, so if you use different settings with different coils or nicotine strengths, you can save those settings in any of the four modes. You can even name your type of e-juice and nic level.
If you ever want to switch to another “My Mode” setting, or change any of the settings, you’ll have to unlock the device again by pressing and holding the Lock Key.
TF 219 Tank and Coils
The Morph 219 Kit ships with a bulb glass TF Tank. It’s huge, holding 6mls of e-liquid for an all day vape. This baby is unlikely to break if you drop it, as the kit also includes a protective silicone cover.
The 0.25ohm Mesh coil head comes pre-installed. As mentioned, it should be used in the WATT Mode in the 30 to 80W range.
You also get a 0.35ohm Mesh coil which works best using the WATT Mode in the 30 to 70W range.
Both coils provide an A1 Kanthal heating element with a honeycomb structure for evened heat distribution and an overall longer lasting coil. As for the wicks, they’re made with premium 100% organic cotton for the purest flavor available.
Dual Adjustable Air Slots fine tune your throat hit.
Like to vape more than 1 type of e-juice? The Morph 219 kit also includes a handy replacement glass so you’ll spend less time cleaning your tank and more time vaping!
As for filling the tank, SMOK uses the same sliding fill cap as the nifty little SMOK Trinity Alpha pod vape. Always prime the coil by letting your e-juice sit in the tank for about 10 minutes. Make sure the tank is fully connected or you’ll get leaking.
Big Clouds / Full Flavor
When it comes to producing vapor, the mod and tank are a match made in heaven. Even with watts set at a modest 30, I was blowing beautiful, voluminous vape clouds. Of course, I used a high VG e-liquid (a necessity for sub-ohm vaping). I tested my mod with Diacetyl-Free Cosmic Fog Sonrise 70VG e-juice. The the tropical flavors were intense.
The Morph does have a lot of safety lock features, primarily aimed at preventing others from using the device or changing settings. While it can make things less adult friendly, there’s a huge payoff with this mod’s power and performance.
The bottom line is that SMOK has created a winning Sub Ohm TC Starter Kit, complete with a large e-juice tank and a highly customizable interface touchscreen. Beautifully designed and easy to use, the SMOK’s Morph 219 delivers a full-flavored vape and voluminous clouds at the right price.
