SMOK Nord black

One of the best things about this mod is its compactness. It’s visibly smaller than the majority of sub-ohm tanks. The dimensions of the mod are 94mm by 30mm by 18.8mm.

As a result, it can easily fit into your hand and pocket and is not a problem to carry around.

SMOK Nord Kit: First Impression

The mod comes in packed in a simple box. When you first get your mod out of its package, the first thing you are likely to notice is its futuristic exterior.

The curved edges add to the classy look of the device. You can choose a color based on your preferences to match your style.

Components of the SMOK Nord Kit:

  • 1 x SMOK Nord mod
  • 1 x 0.6-ohm mesh coil
  • 1 x 1.4-ohm regular coil
  • 1 x USB charging cable
  • 1 x SMOK Nord manual

SMOK Nord Use

The SMOK Nord mod is a battery-powered device. It has a button-triggered system. You can easily monitor how much e-liquid is left thanks to a small window on the mod. The e-liquid container has a 3mL capacity.

The mod is quite convenient to operate thanks to its firing button. In our opinion, it’s much more convenient than the draw-activated system.

SMOK Nord colors

To start using your SMOK Nord, just press a fire button five times. This simple step powers the device on or off based on a situation. Hold the fire button to activate the device and begin vaping.

Charging the device is simple and takes roughly two hours. Just watch for the LED light to stop flashing.

If your SMOK Nord is not working properly, check if its coils are all right. Regular maintenance and cleaning will help you get the most of your vaping device for the longest time possible.

Best Features of SMOK Nord

In this SMOK Nord review, we’d also like to take note of the LED indicator that shows the remaining battery life. If the light is green, you have above 70% of the remaining battery life.

If it’s orange, you have from 30% to 70% remaining battery life, and if it’s red, you have under 30% battery life remaining. 

One more thing you probably want to know is how long does one charge last. Well, it depends on the coil you are using. With an MTL coil, your vape should last about eight hours.

With a DL coil, it will last twice as little – four hours. When the vape battery dies, it takes about two hours to charge it to the full. The manufacturer included a pass-through charging feature as a perk to the users.

This mod is quite powerful on the inside. The SMOK Nord output wattage range is 10 watts to 15 watts.

The mouthpiece of SMOK Nord is well-built as well. It has a duck-billed design and a lip curve. Thus, it fits well in one’s mouth. What’s more, the mouthpiece of SMOK Nord is durable compared to those of many other popular tanks.

SMOK Nord Coils

The SMOK Nord vape is able to operate with three kinds of coils:

  • 0.6-ohm mesh coils (supplied in the kit)
  • 1.4-ohm MTL coils (supplied in the kit)
  • ceramic coils (aftermarket)

Regular SMOK Nord mesh coil and MTL you get with the vape starter kit are able to deliver nice vapor and flavor to the user. Both of them deliver a satisfying vaping experience.

If we were to compare between the two, we’d have to admit that the MTL coil is more impressive. It makes a true pod-style experience real with the SMOK Nord. With this coil, you will get less vapor, but the flavor will be more intense.

The ceramic coil for the SMOK Nord is rated 1 ohm. Its operation is stable and the coil is very durable in general.

If you get the aftermarket ceramic coil for your SMOK Nord, you will likely discover that it provides a vaping experience that stands somewhere in between the two coils you get with the kit.

Many vapers wonder how long SMOK Nord coils last. The reason for it is that some vapers claim that the SMOK Nord coil life was only several days after they got the new products.

Let’s be honest here: you can burn practically any coil if you don’t use it right.

In general, a coil for SMOK Nord is likely to last between one and three weeks. The exact lifespan in a particular case will depend on how often you use the coils, what vaping style you have and how you treat the coils.

The choice between e-liquids and nicotine salts does not influence the coil lifespan though.

To change a burnt coil on your device, you don’t need to do anything hard. There is a plug and play coil connection that offers a quick and easy coil replacement.

After you change the coil, make sure that the cotton wicking is well-saturated with the e-liquid before you start vaping. Otherwise, you risk getting unpleasant dry hits or burning it immediately.

Competitors of SMOK Nord

The major competitor of SMOK Nord is SMOK Novo. In the rivalry SMOK Nord vs. Novo, one thing is sure: the performance of both devices is exceptionally good.

These devices are just built for different vapers. The Nord has a larger battery capacity, slightly larger e-liquid capacity and is overall larger. The Novo is not compatible with sub-ohm coils, which gives the Nord an advantage.

The Juul is another competitor of SMOK Nord. The Nord could be called an improved version of the Juul when it comes to operation, performance and battery life. The Nord is more versatile than the Juul in terms of coils as well.

Final Thoughts

SMOK Nord is a modern pod-style vape that has a lot of advantages over its popular competitors like the Juul and Smok Novo. SMOK Nord’s price is quite competitive for such a versatile and modern device.

It’s easy to use an all-in-one device that allows vapers to choose between MTL and sub-ohm vaping as they please. Another cool thing about it is that it’s compact and lightweight.
