SMOK Nord 4 Replacement Pods | Design
The SMOK Nord 4 pods look identical to the original Nord pods – a clear plastic body with a fixed plastic drip-tip and a removable coil head that slots into the pod’s base.
The beauty of the Nord pod design is that you don’t need to replace the actual pod. When you need to change the coil, you remove it and insert a fresh one into the bottom of the pod.
The kit Vape dubai king sent me came with two pods and two coils – the SMOK Nord 4 RPM 2 pod with a 0.16ohm DTL mesh coil and a SMOK Nord 4 RPM pod with a 0.4ohm DTL coil.
The SMOK Nord 4 RPM pod is compatible with other RPM coils, and the RPM 2 pod is compatible with other RPM 2 coils. If you own the original SMOK Nord and have a bunch of coils lying around, you can put them to good use with the Nord 4!
The pods hold 4.5ml of e-juice (2ml in TPD compliant areas) and are refillable via a red rubber plug on the side of the clear plastic body. The pods are a smoky black transparent color, so you can see how much juice you have left. The pods are also really easy to fill, and I’ll show you how a bit later.
On the underside of the pods are 4 small magnets to hold them in place when connected to the device – these are a perfect fit, and the pods connect with a satisfying snap, with no rattle or wiggle room.
Overall, I’m impressed with the design of the Nord 4 pods – they’re only slightly different from the pod design with previous Nord releases, and as the saying goes – ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
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.
I’m super impressed with the RPM 2 0.16ohm, and I’ll be buying a few replacement coil heads!
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 for you.
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.
Coil life is excellent – up to around a month before I felt I needed to replace the coil.
Overall, the RPM 0.4ohm and RPM 2 0.16ohm pod/coil set-ups worked perfectly. Great flavor, great vapor, and amazing coil life. I’m impressed with the SMOK Nord 4 so far – it’s pretty much all you could want in a pod system wrapped up in one device!
