The Smoktech Magneto is the nicest Chinese made mods I have seen.  Its also the only mod from China that has a fully working magnetic button.

Right off the bat you can see that SmokTech took great pride in this to go through the work of putting their name on the side adding to their own cost. This is unusual of a Chinese mode maker.

 

Smok-Magneto

The top cap features a brass contact.  It works well the only change I would like see is that the magneto center pin is adjustable.  Make sure that you understand this does not move up or down but is static.  It does fit, Protanks, RSST and a few other random items but not Kanger Horizontal Coil Cartomizers.  So keep this in mind.

Head-Cap

The top cap is very well made again everything looks great, the center pin should be adjustable to really take this smoktech magneto mod over the top.

You can see here that the contact points have recessed magnets, this is the secret to the magic of the Magneto.

A better look at the magnetic button.

The threads are very nice, not what I was expecting.

The locking mechanism was superior to that of the Sigelei 19.  This lock actually spins backwards, its a super smooth locking mechanism and I never find myself over screwing the lock.  With the Sigelei 19 it was messy and sometimes the button would fall off or I would accidentally let the battery slide out.

Also notice how in a locked position it extends past the button itself.  It sets very stable on a desk for this reason. Well done!

The throw is smooth and damn near perfect and I have not had a single misfire since using it.

    Hello Sun-vapers,

    Thank you for your blog post. I have a RSST and a #19. I want to change it for a better mech and I think this may be the one. Would it be possible to post a picture in a natural setting with the RSST attached in an upright position? I am very excited either way!

    Thank you so much.

  2. PinoyBoy [ECF] says:

    Great review! I’m glad my vape budget has been close to $0 over the last few months. This seems like a great contender for a mech purchase.

  3. hna says:

    Hows the pressure of the button? Would I be able to stand it up unlocked with say, an RSST on top and not have it be firing?

  4. Duke Little says:

    what is the price for kanger protank 2 and shoketach magneto.when are you going to get them on your wed site to order?

    shoketech magneto is a mechanical ?

  5. Nixxxster says:

    Can you please verify that the magneto works with the AGA-T2. I can’t get it to fire up. It screws down nice and tight with no gap, but it not working. I verify the the Magneto is work with my cartomizer. very disappointed if it don’t work with a AGA-T2

  6. Bill says:

    Does the Magneto Mod fit the Kick clone with an 18490 battery? I hear it can only if u sand the edges of the kick but that seems like it wouldnt be worth the time. Just curious because I just purchased the Mod from you and have a Kick on the way. Thanks for great service as always

  7. Jo Lars says:

    Hello! Do you have any pictures of the Smok Magneto with a Protank? I just got a Dbox Puritank and if the protank looks nice… the puritank should be just as nice. Thank you Jo

  8. Bradley says:

    The magneto does work with the AGA-T2 since it has an adjustable center pin on the atomizer. I Adjusted mine and it fires great and makes great contact. And it does work perfectly with the IGO-L also was vaping it all day yester and vaping it with the AGA-T2 now with agent orange from the famous mad murdock.

  9. Bill says:

    My locking mechanism won’t screw off and stay in a locked position. I try locking it and the entire bottom unscrews off that little ring isnt unscrewing at all or moving a bit. The entire firing button is coming off instead of unscrewing into the locking position…how come?

    • Bill says:

      nevermind I got the counter turn to work just re watched your video haha, my bad…loving the Mod especially with my Kick in there hits like a beast

  10. CHALKY SMOKE says:

    should the positive end of battery be pointed to the drip tip or the button? I just watch two different reviews and each had to battery in different positions and worked..

    • [email protected] says:

      If you place the battery upside down you run the risk of heating up the spring first on most mods. Conservatively speaking I think its wiser to keep the positive side of the battery facing towards the atomizer itself.

  11. dustin says:

    just wanted to say if you didnt know what the spider was for, this mod is greatly showing relativity to Marvel. the spider on the bottom is related to spiderman, the design on top resembles the xmen logo, the name is magneto, the “magneto” font is similar to the comic, and the date 1939 is the same year marvel comics was founded.

  12. John Dearing says:

    Hi Ed do you.plan on carrying parts for this mod in the near future? I’m also curious if rba’s like the ithaka clone or the Russian 91% would fit and fire on it? Thanks for all the solid info you put on your site.

  13. joey says:

    Hi Edward, I’m new to vaping and I just got my first one. It’s Kangertech Protank II and Ego twist battery. What else do I need if buy the the Magneto..
    Like for example AW battery, etc…thanks

    • Chalky Smoke says:

      its a static pin, but on Todd ecigreviews for the magneto. He shows a way to rig it to change pins, but at risk of damaging mod, if done improperly (which he warns you may happen in his review). Plus if you try to change pins you need to find a place that sells silver screws or plates screws with silver.

    • [email protected] says:

      Can you screw other atomizers to the magneto. Some of the RSSTs were sent out with bad 510 threads. Out of 100 RSST I had I had 40% fail to screw on to anything and another 10% that was a stiff fit. Smok sent me 50 new RSST bases to fix this. This was a global thing so it was not just me who had this issue. Lets eliminate the magneto first.

  14. Steph says:

    Does the Magneto need an adapter to run the Kanger T3 or T3S? Does that type of fitting have a name?

    I have only been able to find one or two places selling thread heads, so I am not certain that they are needed…

    I am currently using the Ego-T APV Mod, which I love, but have found the control heads aren’t lasting very long, and becoming hard to replace.

    Thank you!

  15. jwilliford says:

    Merry Christmas Edward! Stupid question, I have always used a twist, does this come with a battery? Hang tough, I am in retail and sometime you just have to let a unreasonable customer go! Hope you have a great new year!

      I have 4 Pro-Tanks, 2 are mini’s and I have the wire, but how do you make a cotton one? same setup just use cotton instead of a wick? Do you roll it to look like a wick? and does it last as long?

      Thanks…. – Chas

      • [email protected] says:

        I am by far not an expert but I believe your roll it to look like a wick and insert it into a wrap that was made with a drill bit and heat treated. Hopefully another blogger can better answer your question.

  19. Ken Guberman says:

    I am also new to the Vapor world Edward I have a Winder 1300mah VV batery and a new protank three dual coil from Kanger. I have been having a lot of problems with charging my winder it just doesnt charge like it used to .Would a magneto + the batteries work with the new protank 3 dual coil or would I have to thread my own “Wick” in order to use a Magneto by Smoktech???Thanks Ken G.

      • [email protected] says:

        Also love my pass-thru’s JoyTech 2600 MaH’s and ITaste MVP the JoyTeK eVic tells and sets everything and you can adjust voltage/wattage plus much more. The MVP adjusts volts and watts plus pass thru and can even charge your phone from it. For an atomizer I have found the Pro Tanks (Glass) to be the best, atty heads fairy cheap for a pack of 5 under $6 and if used with the same liquid , 300 puffs easy, then you can clean also if you don’t burn it up. The mini’s are good but you can also get a Pro-Tank 1 or 2 and fill half way to give you a chance to clean and not waste juice, If you like menthol at all V2’s Green mint tea is great. Then Organic “Butter Cream mint or Organic Vanilla Custard is great in the morning, Still looking for a good coconut cream. Best though isa finding a atomizer that is easy to fill, esy to clean and doesn’t leak. So far the Pro Tanks are close.Stay away from devices that you can’t get atomizer replacements for yet. Always check if parts are available, even if on Amazon or elsewhere, -Good Luck and let me know if you find something good. – Chas

  20. [email protected] says:

    OK, are the “real” Kanger Pro-Tank 2.5 heads in now? and with a variable voltage/wattage pass thru, what is best, 1.8, 2.2 or 2.5 or pulling the top of the head off and adding a thicker wick on top of the wind, then cutting to size?

  21. Jessica H says:

    Hey I lost the magnets for the magneto mod, does anyone know where I can find them or what size they are so I can replace?? Im going crazy without my vape!!!!
