The Smok Nord pod kit is a compact refillable kit that's ideal for new users or experienced vapers looking for a smaller setup. Powered by a large capacity 1100mAh battery, it is unique as it can be used for either mouth to lung or sub ohm vaping, depending on which Nord coil is installed.
A combination of its lightweight design and small size makes it ideal for travelling with and using on the go. There are no confusing screens or menu systems to contend with, rather the single button can be used to both activate and lock the device.
A built-in chipset provides not only important safety protections such as reverse polarity and short circuit protection; it also instantly recognises which coil you have installed and adjusts the wattage instantly providing you with a consistent vape either way.
The 2ml refillable pods feature a side-filling port which will fit most standard bottle nib sizes and a rubber seal to stop leaking when filling and using the Nord. Two coils are included in the kit, a 0.6 Ohm mesh coil for sub ohm vaping or a 1.4 Ohm standard coil for mouth to lung vaping.
Newer users are advised to try the mouth to lung coils first, it produces a smaller amount of cloud and creates a tighter draw that's similar to a cigarette. If you're looking to create large clouds we recommend using the mesh coils, if so you'll benefit from faster heating as well as a clearer flavour from your eliquids.
Certain eliquids can be used with each coil. The mouth to lung 1.4 Ohm coil has been designed for high PG eliquids that are 50% PG or higher, including salt nicotine blends. The 0.6 Ohm mesh coils support higher VG eliquids that are 60% VG or higher.
Overall, the Smok Nord pod kit is suited to almost all users whether you're looking to try vaping for the first time or want to create large clouds with a smaller device; this is a device that you can configure to act differently as your mood and preferences change.
Important information about sub ohm vaping:
This device is (partially) intended for sub ohm vaping. Sub ohm vape kits require a greater amount of knowledge and experience to use safely. They use specially designed coils that register below 1.0 Ohm resistance, for use at higher wattages. These kits will also feature advanced modes that require a knowledge of vaping to be used correctly.
We recommend you do not use an e-liquid that has higher than a 6mg nicotine strength, this will be too harsh on the throat. Sub ohm vaping produces more vapour and because of this, an increased throat hit. High VG e-liquids will allow you to experience greater vapour production when used with this kit.

I have a huge range of pod devices. The nordic barely gets used because:
A. The flavour is terrible
B. The vapour is lack luster
C. It leaks
I have no idea why this is so insanely popular tbh. Imo it's mediocre at best.

While it looks the biz, has good battery life...I nearly got a day out of it there are some issues -
1. the pod leaks terribly and this is not an isolated case as all 5 pods I trialled had the same problem. Resulting in loads of liquid accumulating over the contacts and getting thru to the battery....not good. While youtube has a fix for the problem (remove the black mouthpiece) its fiddley.
2. The flavour is hit and miss and dry hits are common. On the subject of flavour go for the mesh coils, the ceramic and standard coils are pants.
3. There are much better and cheaper alternatives.
Nice try Smok but no thanks

Very happy with my purchase. I was using the novo 2 but I much prefer the nord. Cloud production is insane, flavour is banging. One of the best pods out there IMO.

This is a very capable piece of kit right here. I bought this overseas and used the MTL coil to vape 50mg Nic Salts (they were legal there). It was superb. I had no leaking issues and the battery seemed to last forever with 50 salts. However, I came back to the UK and used the 0.6 mesh coil. The problems began. It would leak - yes. It would drain through the battery quick too. For the price it is now, it is a good buy. I would only suggest that you use the MTL coil with Nic Salts. The flavour on the 0.6 is really good but it will drain the battery faster. There's a marked difference in battery life whilst using the two coils.

Absolutely blown away by price and quality of this vape. Bought for when I go to work so I can sneak it in my pocket.
Compact and nice design. Good flavour for the price and size. I find the 0.8 mesh coils the best for flavour with a menthol liquid. Obviously it's not as strong as my box mod or stick but does very well for a covert work vape.
Tried the included MTL coil which wasnt so great so if you are a fellow MTL vaper I would reccomend a pack of 0.8 ohm mesh coils to go with it.
Definitely better with higher VG fluids. Would highly reccomend. Battery is great too and personally I haven't had any problems with leaking as yet.
Great little kit for when your on the go and don't want to carry a mod around. Works great with nic salts and the battery lasts a decent amount of time.

Before the nord i was using the breeze 2. Much prefer the nord. The coil change on the breeze 2 was much more fiddly and time consuming.
I get about a week or 2 out of the 0.6 ohm coils vaping 20mg salts about 1ml a day. A full day of vaping at this level will deplete the battery to around 70% remaining.
Its a fairly restricted/medium restricted direct lung hit and gives you that warm vape with a bit of a hit to the throat which is important for me as the airy and smooth vapes that you cant feel are just too weak for me and don't hit the spot.
I only have 2 issues - 1 is that i don't really like any of the designs. A plain black one is more my style but not really too bothered about what it looks like to be fair.
2 is that like most people experience, i get a bit of leaking from the pod but its nothing major and is easily cleaned with a towel...or the end of your t-shirt.
After looking at others including the rpm40, fetch, trinity alpha, mico, novo and some from lost vape including the orion and the lyra, geekvape and aspire...i'd probably just get another nord at the moment if mine was to break or whatever.
9/10. loses 1 point for leaking and choice of colours

Like a few of the other reviews, loved this for the first month or so.
I've now used it for more or less 4 months and have found the tendency for leakage to be a bit tedious, basically you'd better keep a bit of tissue with you at all times to clean out the substantial amount of liquid that gathers between the mod and pod parts.
Nonetheless, for this price the flavour production is pretty good, clouds are reasonable, and the battery is not bad (usually get a full day out with it, but again carrying a charger with you is a good idea if this is your only device).
Coils seem to last anywhere from 2/3 days up to 1 1/2 weeks for me. I do vape intensively though, and occasionally with what could be called 'coil gunkers', so I wouldn't consider this a bad turnaround time.
I'm planning on trying another pod device again soon, but I'd tentatively recommend this for anyone wanting something simple to try.

The pods on these do tend to leak but could have been due to a bad batch. I recently replaced one pod with another and so far, no leaks. I did have another issue though, one of my devices got stuck on continuous firing and basically burnt itself out. So I've written off set up number one and set up number two now seems ok, bit of an expensive problem solving exercise but still much cheaper than those awful cigarettes.

I loved my Nord on first purchase, however after a couple months it gets abit annoying... The tank constantly leaks, the coils are fiddly to get out sometimes and the coil life is shocking! Sometimes I wouldn't get a day out of a coil! Sort it out smok! Flavor is good for a pod and clouds are impressive from a tiny thing like this! Overall I do like the Nord still but beware dropping it, the tank will fly off anywhere!
