SMOK Nord Kit - 1100mAh Pod System
While SMOK may be best known for its line of cloud chucking tanks and vape mods, the SMOK Nord shows that the company is no stranger to innovation and is still relevant in the modern age of vaping. Built off the wildly successful SMOK Novo, the SMOK Nord takes the incredibly portable design and adds a fire button, increased pod capacity, and a higher output range. This makes the SMOK Nord considerably more versatile, while still allowing the device to work as an all day e-cigarette that can easily slip into a pocket or bag.
To sum up the capabilities of the device, the SMOK Nord manages to combine the simplicity and portability of a pod device, with the power and capacity of a vape mod. This combination makes the SMOK Nord ideal for both new and experienced vapers, especially if they’re looking for an e-cigarette that will last them for a while in a variety of situations. Looking briefly at the specifications, the SMOK Nord comes equipped with a rechargeable 1100mAh battery and a refillable 3mL pod that can utilize mesh and ceramic coils. Replacement Nord pods are available on 180Smoke. In terms of power output, the SMOK Nord is capable of offering 10-15W, depending on the coil being used and the remaining battery life on the device.
SMOK Nord Specifications
In terms of specifications, the SMOK Nord measures in at 94mm by 30mm by 18.8mm, weighs just 80g, and is constructed from a robust and lightweight material. The shape of the SMOK Nord allows it to fit comfortably in a user’s hand, while still maintaining a slim profile for easy transportation. The pods for the SMOK Nord are made of a high-quality polymer and feature an ergonomic mouthpiece that naturally fits the contours of a user’s lips.
Internally, the SMOK Nord comes equipped with a 1100mAh rechargeable battery that should allow most vapers to get a full day of use from their SMOK Nord. The wattage is non-adjustable, and the device features an output range of 10-15W. The SMOK Nord does not feature any screens, so all relevant information showcased by the device is done through an LED light battery indicator. Finally, unlike the SMOK Novo, the Nord is controlled via a one-button firing mechanism, meaning users will need to physically press a button to activate the device and to create vapor.
SMOK Nord Capabilities and Functions
Much like other SMOK pod systems, the SMOK Nord focuses primarily on simplicity and getting vapor into the user’s body in an easy and convenient way. A single button controls the entire device and a single LED indicator helps users keep track of their device. That being said, simplicity shouldn’t be confused with limitations and no vaper should discredit the capabilities of the SMOK Nord.
In terms of capabilities, the SMOK Nord utilizes a direct voltage based output, meaning the Nord will drop voltage as the battery discharges. This mode of operation gives users a tactile way to judge their remaining battery life and makes the device easier to use for new vapers. This is coupled with the Nord’s air-driven pod system, allowing for great cloud and flavour production, regardless of the device's size and power.
Finally, the SMOK Nord comes with a host of safety features that ensures the longevity of the device and the user’s wellbeing. Some of the features included on the SMOK Nord are 8-second cut-off protection, short-circuit protection, and low voltage warning. These warnings and protections are indicated through the LED, which will flash a series of colours to indicate whatever issue the device may be going through.
SMOK Nord Pods and Coils
Much like the body/battery, the pods used by the SMOK Nord are designed to be ergonomic, portable, and convenient for all day use. In terms of capacity, the pods holds 3mL of e-juice in a clear pod. The clear design of the pod allows users to easily check their e-juice levels, while a small silicone cap covers the fill hole in an effective way. The mouthpiece of the pod features unique curvatures, similar to the SMOK Novo, that make it comfortable to hold between your lips.
In terms of coils, the SMOK Nord pods are compatible with 0.6ohm Nord mesh coils, 1.4ohm regular coils, and 1.0ohm ceramic coils. The device will come with the 0.6ohm and 1.4ohm coils, with the ceramic offerings being sold separately. The 0.6ohm coils are best for sub-ohm vaping, while the 1.4ohm coils are better optimized for a mouth to lung (MTL) vaping experience.

It should be noted that the pods do not have any sort of adjustable airflow. This means users will have to deal with a fixed airflow system, though this may be better for new vapers who aren’t well versed on how airflow can affect how a device vapes.
