SMOK NORD 4 REPLACEMENT PODS | Performance
In terms of performance, let’s break it down into the two pods/coils that came with the kit:
RPM 2 0.16ohm DTL
I’d been rotating the Caliburn, KOKO, and SMOK Nfix for the past year, which are all MTL-style pod systems. Eager to try the heavy DTL vaping set-up on the SMOK Nord 4, I first opted for the RPM 2 0.16ohm pod/coil.
First things first, the airflow is insane! It’s like vaping on a dripper, and it’s fully adjustable via the airflow wheels on each side of the device. With the airflow wide open, it’s an airy draw – perfect for cloud chasing.
The vapor and flavor are excellent – far better than I was expecting from a pod system! Especially with the wattage cranked up! The vapor, in particular, is amazing – so much so that you’d be forgiven for wondering whether it’s worth ever getting your RDA and box-mod out again!
The coil life is brilliant – around 3 weeks before, I started to get the muted flavor and the occasional burnt tasting hit.
SMOK NORD 4 REPLACEMENT PODS RPM 0.4ohm DTL
The airflow on the 0.4ohm coil with the airflow wheels half-open was the perfect draw for me – something I expected after using the original SMOK Nord. It’s not too tight, but not too loose. Of course, it’s fully adjustable, so you can play around until you find the perfect draw. Vape Tugboat
The flavor and vapor produced by the 0.4ohm pod/coil are also on point. After using the 0.16ohm DTL coil first, the flavor and vapor on the 0.4ohm seemed a little lackluster in comparison. But after switching back to the KOKO for a few days, I can say the flavor and vapor production is on par, if not slightly better.
