On one battery charge, the SmokeGENIE works for up to four hours. The SmokeGENIE is ideal for creative photos, film productions and performances where you want to add a special atmosphere by blowing smoke or fog into the room. Thanks to the different attachments, you can choose to concentrate the smoke in one place or to blow it wide into the room. It is even possible to hang the smoke in one specific area for more than 10 seconds. For example on a shooting table or around clothing.
Three different SmokeGENIE modes
You have full control over the smoke production of the SmokeGENIE. There are 25 different positions in terms of spread and amount of smoke. With the supplied attachments you determine the type of smoke or fog and direction. Below are the three basic possibilities:
Classic, dense smoke similar to a cloud in the sky. Lingers briefly in an area of a few dozen centimeters and then slowly dissipates. Choose from five different smoke levels. At levels 1 to 3, you can continue to generate this smoke indefinitely.
Disperses in the room over a distance of several meters. To do this you slide the supplied mini fan onto the SmokeGENIE. It runs on a battery (18650) or via USB-C power. The SmokeGENIE completely fills an average room with mist. This creates a mystical effect. Ideal in combination with LED spotlights, so that beams of light are visible in your recordings. Tests conducted by the manufacturer show that the smoke lingers as much as twice as long as with traditional fog generators.
Low Hanging Smoke
Heavy smoke that lingers for a while on a table, in a glass or around an object. For this, use the silicone tube + sponge (included). Unique effect that offers many creative possibilities. Because the smoke does not spread quickly and is heavier than air, it seems as if the smoke is connected to a certain object. This way it is even possible to fill glasses and pots with smoke.
SmokeGENIE in practice
Fog remains visible in a room for 10 to 45 minutes, depending on the degree of ventilation. In the supplied case you can take the SmokeGENIE and accessories with you wherever you go. You can use the SmokeGENIE directly with the button on the back or via the supplied remote control. This allows you to start and stop the smoke production from five meters away. The remote control operates on a 23A 12V battery, which is not included. The SmokeGENIE itself runs on two 18650 type batteries (with flat head). These are not included. If you use rechargeable 18650 batteries, you can charge them through the SmokeGENIE’s USB-C port – even when the SmokeGENIE is in use. You should always place the plastic heat shield around the capsule and at least one tube on the SmokeGENIE before use, as the capsule and output are hot. Two tubes (5 and 10 cm) and one 30 cm flexible tube are included. In addition, you will find two corner pieces in the case, to output the smoke in a certain direction. To use the SmokeGENIE in practice, perform the following steps:
Fill one of the two clear capsules with liquid. There is an opening for this at the top, behind the rubber cap. The liquid is supplied in a 120 ml bottle, enough for four hours of non-stop smoke production on setting 3. Bottles and capsules are of course available separately (see optional accessories).
Screw the capsule onto the SmokeGENIE (threaded connection).
Insert two 18650 batteries into the SmokeGENIE (not included).
Press the button on the front three times. The SmokeGENIE is almost immediately ready for use, so you produce smoke immediately with the button on the back (or supplied remote control).
If you’re a creative person who likes to use smoke or fog, the SmokeGENIE is ideal. It’s perfect for film shoots, for example to produce smoke under the hood or from the kitchen. In addition, the SmokeGENIE is also very suitable for use in theaters, to produce smoke locally. The SmokeGENIE is immediately ready for use, lightweight, works at a distance of five meters with the remote control (433mHz) and works for hours in standby, to produce instant and long lasting smoke when you press the button. The SmokeGENIE – unlike traditional smoke machines – produces no unwanted ‘puffs’ of smoke when on standby.
