Nord Vs Novo
Anyone out there who has vaped at all, has heard of Smok products and rightly so. They have been unequalled in quality since hitting the vape market running. They continue to maintain the number one spot when it comes to innovation. In the vapor products industry, they have not only flourished but set new trends for the others. They produce iconic devices, tanks and accessories and no one can deny that they lead the industry time and time again with each series they produce. One might say everything they touch turns to gold, just like Ol’ King Midas.
Today, even in the pod-based market, SMOK has made a name for themselves. They continue to carve out a huge slice of the vape pie for themselves by evolving and innovating. The Novo kit, for example is receiving rave reviews. While they further expand their pod-based portfolio, SMOK expanded on the popularity of the Novo by releasing the Nord Kit. In this article, we’ll compare the two to find out how they differ from one another.
Hey, we’re Medusa Juice, we can’t help ourselves!
Smok Novo Kit
You can always count on anything by Smok having luxurious design. In fact, the SMOK Novo Kit is one of the most extraordinary devices on the market today. It is an all-in-one vapor pod system that boasts impressive design elements and comes coupled with several incredible features that make it rank above others in its class.
All of this comes in a remarkably small size. The Novo Kit stands merely 88.3mm by 24.3mm by 14.3mm, which is very compact compared to other pod systems out there on the market. Don’t be fooled by its small size though, there’s plenty bad-assery when it comes to appearance. The SMOK Novo Kit sports a remarkable design using the finest Cobra plated panels that is available in several finish options. These include Prism Chrome, Black, Red, White, Rainbow, Auto Pink, Royal Blue, Prism Blue, and Green. A smorgasbord of vibrant colors. There is also its powering to consider. The Novo device is an integrated 450mAh rechargeable battery, which fits perfectly in its chassis. The power capacity of the Novo enables a reasonable 10-16W range, which results in an outstanding performance.
It is simple to activate the device, it comes with a draw-activated firing mechanism in place. This helps you avoid the hassle of pressing all those buttons. The device utilizes a direct voltage output, which means the power is based on the current state of the battery. Having a mild performance is an indicator that the battery needs to be charged, while there’s also an LED light battery indicator for a visual that lets you know when the battery needs a fresh charge. I, myself, find this to be incredibly helpful. Also, aside from its micro-USB charging system that’s equipped on the device, there are plenty of protection features which are built-in, and allows for greater peace of mind while you’re actually vaping. Who wants a hassle when you’re trying to get your vape groove on?
The most interesting feature of the Novo Kit is its replaceable cartridge pod system. At least it is as far as I’m concerned. This is a fillable pod which sports a hefty 2ML e-liquid capacity. Each fill has a side fill port and so it makes filling a breeze. All that and remember that it has an internal feature which is the most prominent, is the horizontal coil that utilizes organic cotton wicking. The pod comes in 1.2-ohm or 1.5-ohm options. It’s a completely air-driven pod and boasts an ergonomically curved mouthpiece for even more enjoyment. Connecting the pod to the device is just as easy and painfree as everything else with its proprietary magnetized connection which simply falls into place.
Smok Nord Kit
There are a lot of folks who will probably tell you that the SMOK Nord Kit is a device that has taken inspiration from the exquisite Novo Kit, while others will tell you that it is merely an improvement which was designed to further enhance your vaping experience. That’s the view I have. But no matter what it is or was designed for, The SMOK Nord Kit is a remarkably crafted all-in-one pod system that sports a list of incredible features. All of which allow it to truly stand out amongst a rapidly growing vape category.
This pod-based device has a handful of features which could be easily compared to the past successor, which is why we are covering the features of both these kits.
Standing 94mm by 30mm by 18.8mm, the Nord Kit is just as compact, although it possesses a whopping 1100mAh rechargeable battery that’s integrated into the device. This hefty battery capacity allows for a reasonable 10-15W range in power. Regardless of the fact that its power is based on a direct voltage output system, where the performance is based on the current state of the battery.
However, unlike the Novo, the SMOK Nord adopts a single firing button mechanism, giving you the ability to activate the device whenever you would like and avoiding any potential of the device firing on its own from a draw-activated sensor.
The Nord Kit has a 370mA charging current and you’ll be notified of its current charge level via an LED light battery indicator. Which is extremely helpful. The device can be easily charged with its integrated micro-USB charging system.
I can’t miss an opportunity to talk to you about its fantastic appearance. The Nord device is just as impressive as its predecessor when it comes to the appeal. It too uses Cobra plated panels, which are absolutely marvelous to look at and present a tasteful design. You can get the Nord Kit in several finish options as well, including Full Black, Prism Rainbow, Prism Gold, Bottle Gold, Red, and a White & Black combination of colors.
As with the Novo, one of the most impressive features about this kit is the cartridge pod. This offers a 3ML e-liquid capacity and a fillable design. With a replaceable coil design, you won’t have to replace the actual pod, which then opens the opportunity to try new coil options, such as the included 0.6-ohm Nord Mesh Coil that’s optimized for sub-ohm vaping and the 1.4-ohm Nord Regular Coil that’s optimized for MTL vaping. You can also use a 1.0-ohm Nord Ceramic Coil that is sold separately from the kit. So, in addition to the pod, there’s an e-liquid level window and an ergonomically curved mouthpiece to finish the enjoyable experience. More bang for your buck, no matter how you slice it. Smok is golden!
