Spaceman 20K Prism Review

Spaceman Vapes

The arrival of performance boosted disposable vapes has heralded a new era for adult vapers. The arrival of Smok, a trusted manufacturer of advanced vape mods and convenient vape pod kits, augers an era of true competition.

One-time use disposable devices now feature Smart screens that track e-liquid and battery life. More importantly, they include dual coils that provide two firing modes. The screen also keeps the user informed of what mode they are in. In the Smok-Engineered Spaceman Prism 20K, there are three of these performance settings. 

The Spaceman 10K Pro was a bold entry featuring Smok coil technology and extremely robust vapor production and flavor density, with adjustable airflow to allow personalization. The Spaceman 20K Prism takes performance a step further. It is super-sized and enhanced in every specification compared to the 10K Pro, which by any measure is already a cutting edge disposable vape device.

Apart from using Smok developed technology, the Spaceman Disposable Vapes Collection also has expertly crafted nic salt flavors. Mi-Pod carries a huge selection of disposable vapes as these are the most popular products with adult vapers and available in myriad options to suit the lifestyle of any adult nicotine user. If you are not currently an adult who uses nicotine, these products are not intended for you.

Before we review the Spaceman 20K Prism disposable device and flavors, we have provided the tale of the tape. You can also learn more about the Spaceman 20K Prism's predecessor in this feature: Spaceman 10K Pro versus Geek Bar Pulse. While both feature astronaut themed imagery, the Geek Bars seeming power advantage was offset to some extent by how much vapor the Spaceman 10K Pro generated when in Direct-Lung mode. Smok did a good job with both Spaceman models. 

Spaceman 10K versus Spaceman 20K Prism Smok

Tale of the Tape: Spaceman 10K Pro versus Spaceman 20K Prism

Descriptions and narration are handy. But sometimes it just makes sense to test cases in an empirical manner. Below are the specifications and features of the incumbent  Smok disposable vapes: the Spaceman 10K Pro disposable vape device and the Spaceman 20K Prism.

Spaceman 20K Prism Review

In order to pack in the additional features, the Spaceman 20K Prism is a bit larger than the 10K pro. It is about 0.4" taller and a quarter inch wider. But you are getting a lot of features packed into that minimal real estate. But it is notably larger than last-gen disposables like Lost Mary OS5000.

While not as large as a Smok mod, it is immediately clear that this is a serious piece of vaping kit. The Spaceman 20K Prism relies on a 1000mAh USB-C rechargeable battery for power.

This is significantly larger than many rivals but is needed. The Spaceman 20K Prism has three power modes. The "soft" or lowest one is still 15-watts. This is more punch than an XROS or UWell Caliburn typically packs, and the typical disposable vape or prefilled pod kit more typically churns out 11-watts.

The 20K name is ostensibly derived from the up to 20,000 puffs the Spaceman Prism is extracting from its 18ml e-liquid capacity. But this number is at its highest when in the lower wattage "soft mode". Utilizing the 18-watt Norm and 20-watt Boost modes will cut into battery life and puff count.

On the subject of puffs, the Spaceman 20K Pro dusted off some old school Smok mod technology. It includes a meter that measures how long each puff is. The large LED Smart Display also displays numerically the remaining charge and e-liquid capacity. The large amount of information and sheer size of the LED, 1.77 inches, really pops compared to the Spaceman 10K Pros more subdued display cutout in the bottom quarter of the device.

Vaping the Spaceman 20K Prism

The Spaceman 20K Prism is not unwieldy but notably bigger than the first wave of rechargeable disposable vapes. The big screen and boxy shape give it more than a passing resemblance to a Smok mod without the glass tank attached.

The Spaceman Prism 20K is about 3.7 inches long or 94mm. For sake of comparison, a Lost Mary OS5000 is a similar shape but 2.75 inches tall/82mm.

The Spaceman Prism 20K has a hard plastic shell, and is in vogue a slightly more pliant plastic on the mouthpiece. The clear whistle tip style mouthpiece is ergonomically perfect and quite comfortable.

Rivals such as the Geek Bar Pulse, Lost Mary MT15000 Turbo and Raz TN9000 link airflow with the power mode. The Spaceman 20K Prism has separate controls. There is a switch located on the bottom of the device with three airflow settings: MTL, a looser MTL and a wide open direct-lung. These airflow settings can be used with all three power modes. The power modes are controlled with a button that is adjacent to the airflow control.

You may notice on the screen that there is text that indicates LED OFF and LED ON. It is not possible to shut off the display. But holding the power mode button does allow you to either turn on or turn off the LED lights located on the side of the device.

As a classic safety feature, you can also click the power mode button three times to lock the device. The screen provides instructions for unlocking the device once it is locked down.

When firing up the Spaceman 20K Prism, you may note that there is a bit of added heft. That is due to the impressive 1000mAh battery. This is a huge upgrade and worth a few extra grams of weight. Not only does the Spaceman 20K Prism has 10-fold the capacity of a Vuse Alto but a battery three times larger as well. It is also half again more capacity than the usual 650mAh battery found in many rival products.

Boost Mode

When you compare the 11-watt output last gen disposable vapes, Boost Mode can seem a bit excessive for a 5 percent strength nicotine salt. Especially when dialed in with a direct-lung draw.

The original Spaceman 10K Pro was fairly hard-hitting beast when firing at full song but the Prism 20K takes it to another level. The 20-watts of power is immediately evident. The flavor is still outstanding but this is one firebreathing disposable vape.

It has to be with devices like the Lost Mary MT15000 Turbo breathing down its neck in terms of firepower and flavor.

Spaceman 20K Prism Flavors


Disposable Vape Flavors

The flavors of the Spaceman 20K Prism are exactly what one would expect in a disposable vape. These are the flavors most adult vapers prefer. The flavors that when banned result in an increase in cigarette sales according to a recent study. The exact artificial flavor profiles most popular in every consumer good, ranging from breath mints to hard seltzer to kombucha and cannabis edibles.

With these flavor profiles pretty well perfected in nic salt form, veteran vapers will have a pretty good idea what to expect from these classic flavor options. Nonetheless, it is worth noting that Spaceman did an outstanding with each, no small deal considering that they had to be durable enough to withstand the punch Boost Mode.


Spaceman 20K Pro Flavor Review

 It is impossible to understate how impressive the Smok coil accomplishes its goal: dense flavor and impressive vapor production. But it is what is inside that counts. Luckily, high quality nic salts is the answer to that question. 

Dark Grapefruit Spaceman Prism 20K

This flavor features intense, citrusy grapefruit flavors in a dark, sophisticated sweetness for a refreshing vaping experience. Just the right amount of sweetness keeps this from being a pure ruby red flavor. 

Blue Razz ice Spaceman Prism 20K

Perhaps the quintessential disposable vape flavor, nostalgic blue razz always evokes a bygone era when no one asked why a raspberry flavor was blue. This is a strong entry, with a cool blast of iced chill and carny grade blue razz flavor. Ratched up in Smok Boost mode, it is an intense experience as well. 

Apple Kiwi Ice Spaceman Prism 20K

A refreshing and juicy apple flavor meets a tangy and tropical kiwi blast in this one. An icy exhale melds these two profiles together. 

Prism Mint Spaceman Prism 20K

A sweet and herbaceous mint, it does not overwhelm and never makes one think of toothpaste. It is delightfully icy while still delivering the palate cleansing experience of a great mint vape. 

Pineapple Watermelon Spaceman Prism 20K

Fans of fruity vapes, which frankly encompasses almost all adult vapers, will love this juicy pineapple and sweet watermelon flavor. The pineapple is not overrun by overly artificial notes and is not too assertive. Same story with the sweet watermelon flavor. 

Candy Trio Spaceman Prism 20K

A tantalizing trio of your favorite sweets, this is a nostalgic flavor straight from the Reagan-era. 

Strawberry Mint Candy Spaceman Prism 20K

Facing down myriad strawberry ice disposable vapes, the advanced Smok Mesh coil really draws out the distinction of mint and ice in all three modes. And merged with a ripe strawberry flavor, this confection inspired flavor is oddly complex, alluring, and incredibly delightful. 

Berry Cake Spaceman Prism 20K

Decadent cake flavored dessert vape flavors are usually associated with refillable devices or perhaps the Beard Vape Co. powered Fifty Bar Collection

Shop Fifty Bar

The lush berry notes have a medley of tart and sweet flavors. The deep cakey flavor does not overwhelm. Some dessert flavors are delicious until the novelty wears off. This one is designed to be enjoyed all day. 

Cherry Bomb Spaceman Prism 20K

For whatever reason, cherry disposable vapes are popular with adults now. It was a largely neglected artificial flavor for years. Which is strange as it is so pervasive in other consumables and especially beverages. This is a bold cherry fruit punch flavor. It is refreshing with hints of sweetness and tang.

Rainbow Belt Spaceman Prism 20K

Soft belts confections are a time-tested vaping flavor profile. And all the colors of the rainbow are represented in this sweet, fruity and playful flavor blend. 

Miami Mint Spaceman Prism 20K

Miami Mint is a lighter and sweeter mint flavor than the rival Prism Mint flavor. Both have much to recommend, a fan of one is likely to enjoy the other. Competing on the Miami Mint front are many great vapes. Add Spaceman to the list. 

Cali Lemonade Spaceman Prism 20K

A perfectly refreshing lemonade flavor, there are ample sugary notes here to cut through the tart lemon. Yet it is not a cloying bomb or overly bitter. It just tastes a heck of a lot like lemonade. 

Blue Razz Watermelon Spaceman Prism 20K

A second nostalgic blue razz flavor, this one adds tart and sweet watermelon confection flavors to the mix. The added juiciness is evident in the mouthfeel generated by this big and bold blue raspberry flavor. 

Triple Grape Spaceman Prism 20K

Three grape varieties come together for a rich, full-bodied grape flavor that's both sweet and tart. Purple Concord grape is naturally the dominant element and explodes when in boost mode. Ample depth is provided by the purple-hued confection notes. Yet there are enough realistic fruit flavors to impress the most jaded vaper. 

Our Verdict

It may look a bit like a Smok vape mod but the Spaceman 20K Prism is pure disposable vape bliss. It has an all-day plus battery, tons of features, and the brilliantly vibrant nic salt flavors that adult vapers are looking for. The ability to control airflow independent of Boost Mode is a huge feature. 

The flavors are outstanding but there are no real risks taken here, that may eventually provide an opening to brands like Lost Mary with literally hundreds of arrows in their flavor quiver. But if you are looking for a sturdy, long-lasting, reliable disposable vape with the potential to churn out serious vapor, the Spaceman 20K belongs at or near the top of your list.
