New pod systems are coming out almost every week, so what does a big company like Smok do to stay relevant in the overly saturated pod system market? They make a unique pod device which is the Smok Nord. It has the look and function of a pod system but it has other features that you won’t normally see in one. I guess it is more fitting to call the Smok Nord an ultra-portable mod.

Product Pros

  • Elegant and ergonomic design
  • Ultra-portable size
  • Refillable 3 ml/2 ml capacity pods
  • Replaceable coil
  • 1100 mah battery capacity

Product Cons

  • Can’t see the remaining e liquid even with the pod window


Smok Nord Review: Breakdown

Smok Nord available colors

Build Quality

For those who are familiar with Smok mods and atomizers can instantly tell that the Nord is a Smok product due to its cobra pattern design. This has become a trademark design for Smok and for those who have read some of our past Smok product reviews, you guys should know that I really dig this design pattern.

It is a simple design but it gives the feeling of uniqueness and wildness which you rarely come across from a design perspective. But speaking of uniqueness, the Smok Nord is not an entirely new product design and for those who can remember, the Nord is kind of like a newer version of the Smok Novo.

It has the same shape and design, and the only difference is that the Smok Nord is slightly bigger and has a fire button on the front. This new button also serves as its power button and the battery indicator as it has a LED light integrated into it.

If you are a current user of the Smok Novo though, getting the Smok Nord will be a big upgrade due to its features and specifications. One of its biggest selling points is its large battery capacity. The Smok Nord has a built-in 1100 mah battery which can be considered as the largest battery capacity in a pod system.

If your Smok Novo could last a day with its 450 mah battery, imagine the battery life of the Smok Nord. The output wattage of the Nord ranges from 10 watts to 15 watts which is basically the same as the Smok Novo but the regular e liquid capacity of the Nord’s pod is upgraded to 3 ml with the option of getting a TPD compliant 2 ml pod.

Aside from having a replaceable coil head feature, the pod works the same as any other refillable pods in the market. Refilling the Nord’s pod is easier though since it has a big nice hole on the side which is covered by a rubber gasket.

The only problem I have with the pod is that it has a pointless e liquid window which is located on the top end of the tank. While you can see the e liquid through the window when it is full, you won’t be able to see it when it drops down below the window unless you turn the device upside down.

Vapor Quality

The Smok Nord comes with 2 coil heads which are specifically made for the two types of vapers. The first coil head is called the Nord Mesh which is designed specifically for the cloud chasers. This coil head has a resistance of 0.6 ohm and while the coil doesn’t really look like a mesh, it really performs like one and I am surprised with how much vapor it can produce.

Given that the Smok Nord is a low powered mod that can only output 10 to 15 watts, using the Nord Mesh as a coil feels like vaping on a high powered mod. The other included coil head is called the Nord regular which has a resistance of 1.4 ohm.

This coil head, on the other hand, is designed specifically for the mouth to lung vapers and flavor chasers. While the Nord mesh can also produce good flavors, the Nord regular is exceptional when it comes to flavor but a reduced vapor production.

Smok Nord inclined view


Although the Smok Nord seems like a hybrid mod with its size and features, it is still a true beginner pod style vaporizer with its limited functionality. It has no adjustment settings so you can’t change its power and airflow.

The good thing about the Smok Nord though is that it has replaceable coil heads which means using it long term will be way cheaper than those that don’t have replaceable coils.


The Smok Nord is 94mm in height, 30mm in length and 18.8mm in width. It is slightly bigger and heftier than most pod systems on the market but that is due to its extra-large battery capacity which is still a big pro to me. Its shape and design greatly help with its portability as you can easily keep it in your pocket when you are out and about.

Its large battery can also last more than a day of casual vaping and charging it won’t be a problem with its micro USB port.

Smok Nord mouth piece detached


For those who are looking for a small and portable mod that has the ability to be a fog machine or a true mouth to lung device, you can never go wrong with the Smok Nord. It includes two coil heads which are excellent when it comes to direct to lung or mouth to lung hits. It has great build, design, simple features, and its large battery also means that you will have more time to enjoy vaping than waiting for it to be fully charged.

Vaporesso Aurora Play Review

The Aurora Play by Vaporesso is a new pod vape currently on pre-order. It features CCELL coils, a nice automatic MTL draw, and a convenient and familiar body styling. Most of us have used a lighter with this exact design! This is the second version of the Aurora and a few things have changed. The overall body is more rounded and slightly larger, it now has an on/off button and a push-to-fill system, the mouthpiece and pods are different, and the whole pod is swapped now instead of just the coil.

I have a pre-production run, so some of the device’s retail features aren’t in mine. The Aurora Play takes a 1.3-ohm MTL pod designed primarily for nic salt. It still has a 650 mAh battery and it comes with an Omni Board Mini chipset. Apparently, like in the Renova Zero, the Aurora Play will also come with adjustable power in the form of three presets. No word yet on if it really has temperature control.

Build quality and design

Vaporesso Aurora Play Review | Rekindling the Zippo Vape

The machining and finish are incredible on the body of the zinc alloy chassis. The build quality is really good, in spite of a little wobble on the top. Its dimensions are 78.8 mm x 43.7 mm x 15.5 mm making it about the size of the Orion Go. It weighs around 95 grams, which is much heavier than most pocketable pod vapes. But it feels good in the hand, and it looks and sounds just like the world’s most popular lighter when you play with it… which you will do! It’s impossible not to. It even has a cam lever (just like the lighter) that’s responsible for that satisfying click or for silent and easy opening.

The Aurora Play has an automatic draw, but it also has an on/off button (simple 5-click) right above the micro USB port, located on the narrow front side. Vaporesso says the retail version will have three pre-sets for wattages accessed by the on/off button: green/12.5 watts, Blue/10.5 watts, and red/9 watts.

The pod

Vaporesso Aurora Play Review | Rekindling the Zippo Vape

The original Aurora had plastic cylindrical tanks where the coil head was replaced. Now the Aurora Play uses magnetic disposable pods. The capacity has gone up from 1.2 mL to 2.0 mL, and you’ll be able to monitor your juice levels with two 6.5 mm x 8 m juice windows.

There is one available pod for this device, a 1.3-ohm MTL pod designed for nic salts (two come with the kit).

Refilling the pods is easy thanks to the Vaporesso press-to-fill system. There’s a spring-loaded valve on top of the pod that fills the reservoir when pushed down with your dropper. Plastic or needle tips work best and cleanest for the refill, but glass droppers may make a little mess on top of the pod. Either way, you may want to keep a napkin handy when refilling. The main issue for me with this design is once you fill your pod, you don’t have access to any port that will allow you to drain the pod. Make sure you actually like the liquid before filling the Aurora Play!

The first Aurora had a tip that looked like the head of a character in the cartoon Snorks (anyone remember that?). It had an odd shape, it felt cheap, it was proprietary, and it could easily fall off and get lost. The pre-production tip has similar faults with coming off too easily and feeling a bit cheap. But Vaporesso informed us that the tip will be better for the retail product. It will not be removable, and it will keep the nice 510-style tip form factor.


Vaporesso Aurora Play Review | Rekindling the Zippo Vape

The Aurora Play has an automatic and easy draw that hits quick, and it’s got a nice throat hit with warm vapor. The vapor output is decent for a pod vape, and the flavor is good from the CCELL coils. But what I find to be interesting is that thicker juices work better for me with this coil. While chain vaping the Aurora Play, I have no problem taking 20 hits in succession with 70 VG and low nic. With 50/50, I can barely get to 10 rapid hits before the flavor tastes off to me. It takes just a minute or so for the coil to get back to performing back to normal, but it seems to me that CCELL may be better with thicker juices. I guess that explains why I see CCELL coils in oil carts.

I’ve had no leaking from the pods, no spitting, and no surprise burnt hits. The only time I even get a dry hit is when I’m pushing the coils to their limits, which is not actually how I vape. All in all, I think these coils are solid performers… but I wish they worked as good with 50 VG as I find they do with 70 VG. I haven’t had the device long enough to exhaust even one coil, but I have vaped on several and they all worked fine. No random duds in my package (and I tried six coils). Let’s hope the quality control keeps up as production ramps up.

Focus On For More Vape Kits.


The Aurora Play has a 650 mAh battery. The battery life feels normal to me. Nothing too great and nothing too bad. It should easily get you through the day of moderate vaping, but if you vape a lot you will need to recharge at least once a day. Luckily, the Play has pass-thru charging. To charge it, it takes close to an hour (more than 50 minutes, but less than 60 minutes).

Pros / Cons

  • Quality manufacturing and machining
  • Easy draw perfect for MTL
  • No leaking
  • Good flavor
  • Nice throat hit
  • Good flavor
  • Easy to use
  • Responsive automatic draw
  • Juice window gives an accurate picture of juice level
  • Low-quality mouthpiece comes off too easily (pre-production run)
  • Press-to-fill prevents easy removal of liquid
  • Top is a little wobbly


The Aurora may look like a novelty item, but it’s a legitimately good vape. It feels just like the flip top lighter (which shall not be mentioned), but the vape quality stands on its own. The machining and the finish are really well done, and it’s even gotten me compliments from non-vapers. With the changes that Vaporesso says will be in the retail version, it feels safe to assume it will be a good buy.

Justfog Compact 14 Starter Kit


The Augvape V200 Mod was sent to me from Augvape for the purpose of this review. This is just a simple 200-watt mod without a lot of features, but it does what it’s supposed to perfectly. So lets get right into it.

First let’s talk specs:

  • It’s made of Zinc Alloy
  • It fires between 5 and 200 watts
  • And it can fire builds as low as .05 ohms and as high as 3.0 ohms

In the box you get the V200 Mod, a user manual, and USB charging cable.

Designed After a Car Engine

As you can see, the model that I have is red, but Augvape also makes this in white and black. I’m not usually a fan of bright colorful devices, but I’m actually glad they sent this in red because that’s the color of the car engine that this is modeled after, well actually the most popular color. That engine was also made in black and white, they just don’t seem to be as common. So let’s talk about the design.

When I first saw this, I thought it looked kind of ridiculous. It reminded me of something like a power drill case or like one of those heavy duty radios people use on construction sites. But if you’re a car person, more specifically someone who is really into Hondas, you might know what this looks like. So you’ll see on the back of the device some text that says “Inspired by B18C-R”.

If you look that up in Google, you’ll see that it’s an engine, and you’ll also notice that the V200 mod looks exactly like it.

The casing is a replica of the B18C valve cover with the screws all in the same place and everything. The screen is a replica of the spark plug wire cover, also with the same placement of the screws, but I don’t know if those little screws actually have a purpose on the mod.

And then you have the wattage adjustment wheel, which looks like the oil cap.

On the top is the 510 connector, which is supposed to look like a rim.

Obviously that’s not actually on the engine, but it sticks with that car theme. And the 510 is right in the middle of the device. Atomizers sit flush and because the mod is 29.2mm wide, you can fit anything up to that size without any overhang.

Focus On For More Vape Devices.

The V200 Screen Looks Nice

Ok, now lets talk about the screen and features. First, to turn it on is five clicks, like anything else. The same to turn it off.

The screen is nice and bright. Everything looks crisp and clear. No complaints there. It shows what mode you’re in, the atomizer resistance, your wattage, the time or how many seconds of your hit, and the battery levels of each battery.

The V200 Features and Modes

At the top of the screen is the firing button. It’s hidden behind the screen. I like this because it makes it easy to fire with either your left or right hand. And that button is clicky and very responsive.

To enter the menu, you click the firing button three times. You only have three modes here; Auto, Bypass, and V-Mode. The manual says that you can adjust the screen brightness by pressing the firing button and up on the wattage wheel at the same time, but it doesn’t work. That actually locks the wattage in place, but you can still fire it. If you press the firing button and down at the same time, it locks the device from firing, but you can still adjust wattage.

Alright, lets talk about those modes.

Auto is your typical wattage mode. Nothing special about that. It fires immediately, but has a bit of a slower ramp up time if you’re vaping high wattage. At lower wattage, say for example 30 watts, I don’t notice a slow ramp up at all.

In bypass mode, it basically runs like a mech mod, but with the safety features of a regulated device. So you’ll get whatever wattage you should get based on your build and the voltage output of the mod, which is 8.4. So it’s more like a series mech mod. But you’re limited by your batteries here. For example, I ran a 0.23 ohm build and at 8.4 volts, I should get 306 watts. This device can’t do more than 200 watts, but it also hits those batteries hard and drops the wattage to around 166 watts. But yeah, it basically works like a series mech mod.

Now let’s talk about V-Mode. So this mode is just like regular wattage mode, but it’s supposed to give you faster ramp up time and more stable wattage. I haven’t noticed that I get more stable wattage in any of the modes. The wattage seems stable to me in every mode, so I’ll just have to take their word for it. But for faster ramp up, it does seem to work like they say, especially at wattages around 70 watts or higher. Regular mode works great as it is though. It might have a second longer ramp up, while V-mode is more immediate. I have no way to test it, but it feels like it’s working to me.

V200 Batteries and Charging

On the front is a USB port designed only for charging. They included a really nice nylon wrapped USB cord too. I always recommend buying an external charger for batteries, but you can charge the batteries in the device if you want. While it’s plugged in, you’ll see a little red light at the top of the screen dimming in and out. This also has a passthrough ability, so you are able to vape it while it’s charging. They don’t mention this in the manual, so I can’t say for sure if it’s designed to work that way.

Final Thoughts

That’s the V200! Even though I don’t really care about cars, I actually think the design is really cool. I also like the size of this mod. It feels really comfortable in the hand and isn’t too bulky, which also makes it easy to fire.

My favorite thing about the V200 is how fast it fires. It fires as soon as you hit that button!

The one drawback for some people would be that it doesn’t have temp-control, but if you’re a regular wattage vaper, the v200 is awesome.

GeekVape Aegis Legend Review

GeekVape Aegis Legend Review — A Must Have for Every Tool Box

No matter how rugged your lifestyle gets, everyone knows having the right tools built with quality materials and craftsmanship can make all the difference in their performance. Our GeekVape Aegis Legend review takes a look at a sturdy, solidly built vape kit that may be the only thing missing from your tool box.

One of the things we loved about the first GeekVape Aegis mod was how incredibly durable it was, incorporating shockproof, dustproof and waterproof technology into a vape with outstanding functionality. Now that’s not to say there wasn’t room for improvement with the first incarnation, while it was able to run on either a 20700, 21-700 or 18650 vape battery using an included adapter (which has become a standard accessory of many top vape mods we’ve seen recently) it only accommodated for a single power source. In addition, it was only able to fire up to a maximum wattage of 100 watts, a power cap that most users of modular sub ohm vape tanks rarely reach with the stock coil heads, but one that vapers who prefer RDA vape tanks and drippers prefer to at least have the opportunity to surpass if they want.

Reflexively, the next evolution is powered by twin 18650 batteries and is able to reach an astounding 200 watts. Bear in mind, having higher power possibilities and lower resistance coefficients, a quicker drain of your batteries typically comes along with it. While this was a significant detractor for users of the first model, our Geekvape Aegis Legend review determined this to be an enduring issue even with twin batteries.

However, when paired with the GeekVape Aero sub ohm tank that comes in the kit, your suggested wattage peak is in the 80 watt range. As a result, this starter system increases this tough, dependable and tenaciously constructed box mod’s capabilities and functionality. To explain, like many of the best top wattage box mods, the equipment it comes with is a suggested pairing for users to acclimate themselves with a new device and this immensely durable power plant can cradle up to a 30mm RDA vape tank without overhang.

A Travel Mod Built for Abuse — GeekVape Aegis Legend Review

Vapers are people on the go, we’re made up of people from every walk of life from jet-setting celebrities like actors and musicians to skilled tradespeople like carpenters and hairdressers. As such we rely on our equipment, our tools and dependable routine to keep us sharp and our vape devices to keep us tobacco free. However, it can be tough to find products built with the same care, detail and craftsmanship that we require for our busy lives. Luckily, our GeekVape Aegis Legend review revealed this reliably impenetrable starter kit to be just that.

The outer body of the mod is constructed of a blend of shock-resistant rubber, silicone, stainless steel, colored aluminum grip frame, carbon steel, zinc alloy, and leather with a removable rubber stopper to protect the micro USB port and an unbelievably well designed, venting rubber gasket system to seal and waterproof the battery compartment. Accessing the battery door is as easy as toggling the button on the bottom and the spring-loaded hinge flies open to reveal clearly marked slots for two 18650s. With a surprisingly durable LED screen, you can easily navigate through the AS chipset programs including power(variable wattage), TCR, temperature control(with Ni, SS, or Ti coils), VPC(power curve), and bypass(mech) modes with the confidence that wherever you are and whatever you’re working on won’t affect the functionality of your vape mod which is well worth the investment.

Just like its predecessor, if you look up videos of this vape starter kit you’re going to see a lot of people doling out a range of abuses including submerging it in water, throwing it off a roof and generally trying to destroy its overall construction before concluding that it still functions perfectly. That said, there is a disclaimer on the GeekVape website asking users not to do this purposely as there is a chance you could damage the batteries inside from high drops onto hard surfaces. Regardless, throughout our GeekVape Aegis Legend review this lightweight armored vape mod proved its worth as one of the most durable vape mods built to last the world has ever seen.

Additionally, the Aero sub ohm vape tank comes standard with a 0.15ohm mesh coil that is among the most well engineered stock atomizer coils we’ve used in recently memory. It comes with a bubble glass outer tank that accommodates up to 5ml of vape juice and is easy to fill via an impressively well-machined top cap that quarter turns to lock and seal perfectly. In all, this setup is not only built to blow the best electronic cigarette starter kits out of the water in performance, it may be the only thing left after a post-apocalyptic event (perfect vape mod to keep in your storm shelter).


  • Waterproof, Shockproof, Dustproof mod fires between 5w-200w
  • Powered by dual 18650 vape batteries (not included)
  • Integrated variable wattage, VPC curve, bypass, TCR and temperature control modes
  • Aero vape tank comes with 0.15ohm mesh coil, 5ml bubble glass and 4ml straight glass
  • Leather palm grip comes in Snakeskin, Camouflage, or Brown and aluminum frame available in Rainbow, Silver, Azure, Navy, Red, Orange or Stealth Black

GeekVape Aegis Legend Review Summary

Whether you’re headed to the construction site for a hard day on the job, to the seaside for a day of swimming and lounging in the sun, or into an underground government bunker this is definitely the vape kit to take along for the adventure. With intensely tight-fitting and durable rubber seals keeping all the electronics safe from any obstacle that you may come across, this mod is made to withstand the daily abuse that busy vapers dole out. Our GeekVape Aegis Legend review discovered that not only is this vape mod even more well crafted and designed than the original, that 200-watt maximum power output from the dual vape batteries is plenty of juice to keep you vaping for hours of plentiful and fulfilling vapor.

Experienced vapers know that finding your ideal vaping temperature and wattage is less about pushing your device to its limit than it is finding the sweet spot with the equipment you have combined with the opportunity to scale up your performance output if you want to. Though few of us build our RDAs with resistance meant to be operated over 100 watts, knowing that you’re able to and experimenting with different coil builds is a valuable asset, particularly for advanced vape mods that are meant to withstand long term use and frequent drops overall its an outstanding value for how long it’s meant to endure.

Expires in: 8 hrs 57 mins 04 secs

The AS chipset inside the Aegis Legend is among the easiest to select from and navigate through, and while many devices employ complicated menus and successions of buttons, this unit has plenty of shortcuts to get users directly to the settings they need with a simple succession of clicks. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys vaping, there are few mods built as rigorously, specifically for your lifestyle of traveling and bumping around either from home to work or trekking across the globe.  Discovering equipment for vaping that is meant to last is rare, and even more so those that factor in frequent occurrences of submerging them in water (for whatever reason), being susceptible to dust and dirt in every crevice, and being knocked over (or off a window sill onto the ground below).

We’re based right here in Southern California, the heart of earthquake country, and though I’m not looking forward to the day that a shelving unit or other piece of furniture falls on my favorite mod, the results of our GeekVape Aegis Legend review found that if those events came to pass, they wouldn’t be much of a hurdle for this burly vape mod. In fact, I envisioned myself sorting through the rubble of my apartment, sifting through the remnants of what had once been my possessions, only to find this rugged box mod not only intact, but ready to fire right away. We already live full, bustling and at times hectic lives, why not equip ourselves with perfect vape starter kits to complement that momentum that are built just as resiliently as we are.

Smoant Karat Review – Vapor Bling

Smoant as a company has a small reputation for leaning towards the conservative side when it comes to the number of releases they pump out, especially when compared to brands such as Smok, Joyetech, or Aspire that seem to announce a new release every other week. What they have going for them however is a strong sense of quality and consistency built into their product line.
Their latest pod-style offering, the Smoant Karat breaks away from the success of the high powered Smoant Knight which put them on the map and moves toward a more accessible and portable approach geared towards newcomers.

Review: Smoant Karat

Smoant Karat Review

Manufacturing Quality

Without a doubt, one of the most standout features of the Smoant Karat is its aesthetics. Directly inspired by its namesake, the Smoant Karat shows off its perfectly chiseled and cut outer shell available in a good variety of colors ranging from black or silver, all the way to a colorful and brilliant rainbow finish that doesn’t hesitate to sparkle when viewed at from each and every angle showing off the finely cut precision of the device.

It’s not all perfect though as the Smoant Karat does have a tendency to attract fingerprints, a common issue usually seen in devices that opt for a glossy or shiny finish.

Despite the angular design of the Smoant Karat, the edges of the device aren’t too sharp so as to cause discomfort when holding the device in hand. Even our prolonged vaping sessions with the Smoant Karat have proven that it is indeed comfortable to use regardless of how long or how frequently you like to vape.Smoant Karat available colors

The pod which holds up to 2ml of e-liquid is slightly tinted which should normally obscure your ability to see how much e-liquid is left in the tank, but due to the large size of the window itself, we’ve found that this isn’t really a problem, fortunately.

Focus On For More Vape Start Kit.

Flavor Quality

Another unique and noteworthy feature of the Smoant Karat is its usage of quartz as a coil material instead of the typical kanthal or stainless steel.

One of the big advantages of quartz is that it ramps up in temperature very quickly not to mention the flavors produced when using quartz often feel purer and less muted than when using typical metals (something which is already known and accepted within the dabbing community).

All of this proves to be true in the Smoant Karat’s case in terms of overall flavor production and while the Karat doesn’t necessarily produce the absolute best flavor we’ve come to be familiar with due to exposure to much higher powered sub-ohm devices, it comes pretty darn close which is already more than we can ask for in such a compact and easy to use device.

Airflow is smooth and restricted, both qualities which are well regarded in a quality MTL pod-style device. There’s no option to adjust the airflow but considering what the Smoant Karat was designed for (MTL vaping) there’s really no need for such an option as the airflow on the device as the way its setup already feels great.

The air-activated draw sensor on the device works as intended without any annoying hiccups which are to mean it fires on demand and without fail when inhaling from the mouthpiece. Just like the Juul, the Smoant Karat lacks any dedicated physical button to fire up the device.

Power Flexibility

It almost goes without saying at this point but considering that the Smoant Karat is a pod-style device, it lacks any form of variable wattage or temperature control. There’s also a lack of multiple coil types supported as the kit only works with and includes a 1.3ohm quartz coil.

This means that the Smoant Karat will and only will ever vape at one fixed output unless Smoant decides to change that and announce/release a coil that supports sub-ohm vaping for a relatively higher vaping output.

On a positive note, however, the Smoant Karat does support refills which means you’re free to use any e-liquid of your choice and you won’t be limited to whatever pre-filled pod flavors manufacturers such as Juul offer.

The versatility in vaping your preferred e-liquid lets you adjust the intensity of the vaping experience via the nicotine strength of whichever e-liquid you choose. While the Smoat Karat works just fine with high strength freebase nicotine e-liquids, we’ve found optimal results when pairing the device with a high-quality nicotine salt blend.Smoant Karat upper part

Ease of Use

There’s no doubt that the Smoant Karat is easy to use. The magnetic assembly at the bottom of the pod makes pod removal/installation and coil swapping a breeze as the entire pod easily detaches from the base of the device. The Smoant Karat, unfortunately, doesn’t manage to avoid the common issue of bottom filling pods which means you’re going to need to detach the pod from the device when you need to top up e-liquid.

Something new however on this front is how Smoant integrated two fill ports onto the bottom of the  pod and while we’re not quite sure what advantages this offers over single port devices, the good news is that each of these fill ports are more than adequately sized to accommodate bottles of any size, shape, or form.

Charging the Smoant Karat is simple enough thanks to the MicroUSB port located on the side of the device and while its always nice to wish for some USB-C integration in newer models, the accessibility and compatibility that Micro USB offers are second to none.


With dimensions of the Smoant Karat measuring out to 88 * 48 * 12mm. It definitely holds its own as an above average portable daily driver. The lack of girth of thickness to the device makes it easy to slip in and out of pockets and to top it off, the 370mAh battery which is integrated into the chassis makes for a decent performer easily lasting for about a day when vaping moderately.

Another surprising bonus is the chassis features accommodations for a lanyard to be hooked around which further enhances the portability of the Smoant Karat.Smoant Karat side view

Overall Experience

At the end of the day there’s really no major drawbacks that should deter you from picking up the Smoant Karat should you be a fan of its aesthetics. The more than ample battery life coupled with the strong flavor and vapor production make it a decent performer overall.
