I bought a Nord because I had temporarily lost my Novo. At first I felt like the mouthpiece was too big compared to the Novo ( I’m a girl) but the flavor was so good I grew to love it with a 35 mg cappuccino Nic salt mixed with little 24 mg coffee regular e juice. But then bought a new liquid I don’t like - ever since had trouble with leakage I guess from the coil THEN found my Novo but still prefer the Nord- trying to get off the Ciggs / now just have to get my juice right again & Ill be good to go! Btw someone said the art design was not good - try peeling off the protective tape haha
I just ordered this and I LOVE it! Wasn't sure I could handle it but its so easy to use. Just ordered replacement coils so I'll be ready to go!
I haven’t smoked a cig in 4 months. From the first day, this vape was so easy to set up and use. For new vape users, it can be somewhat intimidating to choose one because they seem to have hit the perfect storm between the death of the cig industry and the tech junkies modding their vapes like they’re trying to pass the Turing test.
It does leak a bit depending on the pod, and the recharge cord has got to be a cruel joke from some sociopath in design. But, other than that, I’m very happy
Device is ok but some coils tend to burn out after only a day or two. Also the pod itself is not under warranty. The pod that came with Nord started heavily leaking juice between the clear window and black part of mouth piece. I called warranty department and they said not covered. I have to fork over another 6.99 for pod and I only had device for less then 5 weeks. Take both of these factors into consideration if you want to order this device.
I primed the coil properly and let ejuice sit in the tank for 20 after filling it up. I get no flavor and the vapor is not that great. Irritating
Only complaint i have is the art (resin print) absolutely looks like crap.
It is beautiful and tastes amazing!
If you're looking to get off cigarettes and into vaping as easily and inexpensively as possible, try the Nord and order it here from Direct Vapor. You won't regret it!
In a bid to get off cigarettes, I tried vaping 8 years ago. I soon quit because it was expensive, a hassle, and harsher than and nowhere near as satisfying as cigarettes. Recently, I've noticed vaping is ubiquitous, and so intrigued by the huge clouds and apparent affordability and ease of use, I decided to try vaping again. I'm really glad I did as the technology has improved exponentially as exhibited by devices like the SMOK Nord. This inexpensive, portable vape produces seriously satisfying clouds, is incredibly easy to use, and for the last two weeks, I've given up the cigs with nary an afterthought. Within two days, my breathing noticeably improved. For the price of 3-4 packs of cigs, switching to the Nord gets you serious savings AND better breathing (or significant harm reduction) - it's a real no-brainer!
If you do choose the Nord, I'd recommend ordering at least 1 extra pod and some coils, too. Extra pods allow you to easily switch e-juice flavors, and if you use the Nord regularly, you'll need coils. Mine are just now burning out at 2 weeks at a usage rate of 2-3 ml/day using 50VG/50PG Black Note 'Latakia' and 'Legato' Naturally Extracted Tobacco liquid. There are several different resistance coils, of which I've tried two: the 1.4 Ohm coils are primarily for MTL and give superior flavor, while .06 Ohm coils are recommended for DTL (though they work fine MTL) and give much better vapor production at the cost of slightly less taste. As a former pack-a-day smoker of Perique cigarettes, the .06 Ohm coils are definitely the way to go for satisfying throat hit and getting as close as possible to cigs, in my opinion.
The pods are very easy to fill via a small, rotating rubber locking door and they lock in with a satisfying "click." I've had no problems with leakage or loose/defective pods, and I carry the Nord everywhere. At 2-3 ml/day I charge it twice daily, just to be on the safe side. You could probably get away with once-daily charging with no problem, though. The Nord is solidly built and has some real heft for its size. It comes with a six month warranty but even if it dies at 6 months and 1 day, I'll have no complaints considering the cost of literal pennies per day for drastically improved respiratory health!
I should also add that Direct Vapor got my vape here in 2 days! Since then, I've ordered coils and pods and they also arrived securely packaged and very quickly. I'll be using and recommending Direct Vapor from now on for their overall quality, selection, low prices and rapid delivery.
smok !!! you've done it again! thanks to directvapor s free shipping! there customer service is top notch! I was iffy on getting this pod since I m a sub ohm vapur. used to big clouds and intense flavor but this little pod does it all! not only gives you satisfaction on quick nic fix but also produce decent amount of clouds and flavor is absolutely fantastic. I highly definitely recommend this pod and directvapor! thanks!
I've been vaping a little over 5 years. I started with cig-a-likes and moved to mods after a couple years. I still used the cig-a-likes away from home due to portability. Recently, my cig-a-like company went out of business. Rather than trying to find another company with a flavor I liked, I found the NORD system and bought one. Overall, I love it. Now, I can use the same juice wherever I vape, and it's cheaper than buying cartridges.
The battery lasts all day and the size of the tank is adequate. Also, it seems to use less juice than my big MOD. Throat hit with the mesh coil is good. I don't care much about clouds, but the NORD does a good job.
I have only one issue. The friction hold on the pod wears out quickly and it pops out of the battery on a regular basis. Perhaps the next generation could have a magnetic hold? Other than that, it's a great system. 4 1/2 stars.
Like others have been saying, the Nord is very versatile. As a sub ohm tank and mod user until now, I’ve had to mix down my juice due to higher vg content that most portable devices just don’t do well. Granted, salt based for the pods in Caliburn and Zero have taste in mind and deliver.
With the Nord, I love the coil system!!! Now I’m adding an extra pod replacement as well as a back up device so that I can go back and forth between the .6mesh w sub ohm, and the 1.4 for trying cbd & Salts.
*Note - I’ve had no issues with leaks whatsoever! Maybe I got lucky as I’ve read reviews concerning that. I would think if you get a pod that isn’t a dud, it’s gonna last a long time as the Nord utilizes the coil drop in system. So keep the pod in good shape and only replace coils when needed. Great feature! Also it is a good snug fit, again no issues there either.
Also plenty of skin options to personalize & protect the body. Seems a very popular device by many good reviews and I’m really enjoying it.
What could make it better-
A firing button lock without turning it off.
(Maybe in a software update?)
Maybe a couple new coil variations but again happy with what they offer so far.
I can’t think of any Negatives with this system!
Lastly- when you pop the pod off to refill, take a look at the thickness of the metal body- this device is built very well! The 1100mah internal lipo delivers great batt life even for us chain vapers!
Stopped smoking 2.5 packs a day with the novo and 50 mg American Patriot. But had to keep one on the charger all the time and constantly filling the 2 ml pods. After getting the Nord I'm down to 25 mg Cubano and Cubano black my two favorites. Battery last all day pod last all day. Also using CBD 500mg with ceramic and 6 mg regular with the sub ohm coil. I have 4 now with 8 pods for different flavors and have had no issues with anything. I do wish the fire button was concave as to not fire if you forget to turn it off. 5 stars all day!
I love the nord. The only problem I came across was the pod not wanting to stay put. Bought another and its perfect. The coils last great if you arent chain vaping. And I have to say, the flavor us great. Battery lasts me all day.
Great nic salt device but my only gripe is that the pod pops out sometimes and the pods leak a little.
I didn’t have much hope for this. I do not like any lower watt vapes, pens etc. my boyfriend got one and loved it. I had a few bottles of 30mg nic salts and thought why not? The price was great plus an extra 15% off.
I ordered this, had to send my license. I was expecting it to take forever! NOPE! Had it within 2 days of ordering, that’s a big bonus
It came w 2 coils, I also got the Resin Rainbow. I’m very pleased with the color. It took me a minute to figure it out, but once I did I was surprised. Smooth hit with 30mg nic. It’s a great little vape. I highly recommend it.
I do suggest buying another charger. It comes w a charger that’s about an inch long. Lol luckily I have a couple from my other smok vapes that work.
Fast charge too!
I've had the nord for a little over two months now. When it works, it's a wonderful pod system. Over the course of the last two months I've had it be perfect about 50% of the time. I'm not sure if I have defective units, but my button sticks on both units randomly, so I really have to pay attention when I'm done with a drag. I've burnt up quite a few coils due to this defect.
The device/battery itself feels good in the hand, is comfortable to hold and has a good heft to it. Smok got the feel of this device down pat. Everything just seems to be in the right place for me an average 5'9" male. I'm not one to care much for aesthetics, as I care not what it looks like if it does a superior job. I think the Nord is an attractive pod device. I have the red/gold and green/gold patterns. I like the tones of the colors, but am not personally a fan of gold, so it puts me off a bit that they are not offered in a solid color. (the resin finishes were not available to me when I made my purchase). The device charges quickly, but the included 4" cable is a joke. It works, but is not convenient in any way. I have dropped them a few times and aside from the pod randomly flying off, they suffered no damage other than some scratches. I have not determined if they are water proof yet, going kayaking next week, so I may get to test that out.
The pods are nice, but they really need a magnet to hold them in place. Whatever little plastic tab they are relying on for pressure seems to wear out after 2-3 weeks. It'll still work, but will constantly lose contact with the battery and have to be pushed down. A major annoyance that could easily be avoided. The best part about the tank is the independently replaceable coils. Coil swaps are easy, even with juice still in the pod. I have had some leaks, spitting, a slight weep on one pod from the fill flap and over multiple pods, the juice just disappears... Several times now I have filled the device before bed and woken up to an empty or significantly drained tank. No sign of it leaking into the battery and no sign of the juice on the exterior of the pod at all. I have no explanation for where the juice goes lol. I was very confused the first two times and it's happened two more times since then. First two were on the same tank, the last two were different tanks from the first and from each other... Suppose it could be leaking into the battery, but I don't see any sign of juice in the pod well, nor is any leaking from the batter itself. Weird
The coils themselves seem to be just ok. The mesh is great, makes great clouds, good flavor, but mine seem to gunk up and taste funky within 3-5 days no matter what juice I try. Another downside is the extra draw on the battery means that I might not make it a whole day (~17hrs) without having to plug in. The mesh still works great with salts, but may make you nic-sic if you're not careful. The other coils work great with my salts, but suffer from the same problem of getting an unpleasant flavor after 3-5 days of use. I don't notice much of a difference between the two 1.4ohm offerings aside from slightly better flavor from the ceramic at the cost of slightly less longevity. The ceramics last me 3 days, 4 tops.
I like this device despite its flaws. The form factor is perfect, the battery is great, it puts out great vapor, however, I'm hesitant to recommend it at this time due to the associated costs. I mean if it gets you off analogs, who cares! But the reality is this device is going to cost a bit more to run than some of its competition. Whether the trade-off in costs vs another device is worth it is up to you and how much you're willing to experiment to find the perfect device for you.
One thing I can say emphatically is that I would like to see this exact same device (even sans updates for the problems I mentioned) in a draw-activated mode. I prefer that myself over the fire-button on such a small device. I currently prefer the MICO by smok for the draw activation and IMO, better pods.
I hope my review has given you some better information from which to make a decision, good luck!
Been going through pod systems and this has been the best yet. However the 1.4 coil it came with didn't work and after a week the pod is not wanting to stay put.
Though I was upset about the initial coil, after I popped a ceramic replacement in I was blown away.
This is my favorite vape pod device. I quit smoking using it. I also have an orion lost vape device, but I prefer this one. I use the mesh coil and use nic salts. Love this thing!!!!
The nord pod system is a great device. I love this lil thing. My pod leaks but i can deal with that. I get a really nice throat hit and decent sized clouds. This thing will be in my pocket for a long time.
I have been wanting to try out a pod system for a while, but was concerned that I wouldn't get as strong a hit as I prefer. While picking up juice at my local store, I noticed the nord and asked the difference between it and the novo. She explained the battery and coil in the nord and I bought it on the spot. I NEVER buy products without doing my research and finding a good deal, but I'm glad I jumped on this. It has a nice strong hit, charges quickly, and fits in my pocket! Granted the hit isn't as hard and the battery life is shorter than some of the more powerful mods, but a good strong pull provides me with the experience I enjoy and the quickness of the charging prevents that from being an issue for me. There is also the option of buying a second one (I am a fairly heavy vaper) right here on direct vapor. With the twenty-something dollar price tag and the small size, I can bring two to work so I have a backup. It's also worth mentioning that it has an LED on the fire button that informs you of the approximate charge level which I think is a very cool. I've been purchasing Smok products for years because they make quality innovative items, and this "pod mod" is no different.
If your thinking about buying this, I highly recommend doing it. I know I'm glad I did.
I really enjoy my nord, it has a great hit and flavor plus the cloud is favorable as well!! i bought one and got another one i love it so much, my son stole my first one.. I have another smok mod, but it wasnt the same! Had to buy another nord. Great hit, flavor, value!
I was trying to find a device that was compact, decent battery, good flavor and hits. This little guy checked off all those with flying colors. Just ordered a second one!
does everything i want in a small device
all pro and no cons for me
I have two of these devices so I can always be ready for the most satisfying vape experience. I have had absolutely no issues with this device. It is smooth and really brings out all the flavors in your juice. I also have a Lost Vape Orion Q and the Smok Nord it way better in my opinion. The Lost Vape is a little warm for me and just doesn’t give you the same flavor as the Nord. Don’t think about it. Get it.
Really nice in several respects, where other similar units fail. Strong flavor/hit, decent battery, love the size and feel, not too much of a pain to fill pod. Took away 1 star bc when I went to refill pod I discovered it had leaked considerably under the pod, and the contacts were practically swimming. Not good, but I now know and can at least remove pod frequently and clean up.
Big batteries and mods are like vhs tapes now .. imo.. this thing has made me put those in storage.. small, easy, and does what it needs.. gives me nic and flavor.
And clouds( if your into that) just add more vg...I carry 2 around (just in case) the only downside ive seen is with 06 coil. Battery goes down quick.. but the 1.4 coils does the job great. Keep your giant mods. They r sure to be vintage devices soon
Having used a sub-ohm tank for a few years, I wanted to move away from the attraction getting large device and clouds, and wanted a small device that packs a hit without setting off visual alarms. I found this with the Nord, with the 50mg juice and ceramic coils, I can quickly step aside and become satisfied with two or three hits and not fill the area with a cloud.
I feel very lucky this device is available at this stage in my vaping, and that I found the great service and prices of Direct Vapor!
This is my first real vape device. I had tried Blu, when they first came out, and that was an OK temporary pacifier. This thing is wonderful. I wanted something simple and compact. My smoking habit has been cut in half, at least, since I started with this. I immediately bought a second one, just in case. This is a great device to try, if you're trying to quit smoking. For $30, it is sooo worth it.
I love the way the device feels in my hand, it’s got a nice weight without being heavy, feels solid, and the surface has a nice texture to it. I got the green one and honestly it looks gorgeous in person. Vapor production is huge and hits very smooth. Refilling the pod is so easy and conveniently designed. Seriously, I can not find any faults with this device. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a badass everyday convenient high performance pod device!!
I've had 2 of these for almost a month now and they worked flawlessly until today. One of them has some sort of malfunction with the button and the light won't turn off now. It also won't fire up. I've tried every type of button press combination I could come up with and nothing works. I'm assuming the button just stopped working or got stuck. It originally had a white light indicating that it was being used even without the pod in it. Now it's just green indicating it's above 70% charge and nothing is changing this. I've plugged it into multiple outlets and a usb battery stick and nothing works. I'm just going to order another one because like I said above they worked flawlessly until now. They provide a good hit, charge quickly and are easy to use.
There always has to be a weak part on every device. Can't the makers make a system without flaws. Everything on this unit is perfect EXCEPT the friction hold down for the pod wears down and becomes loose in short order. After a couple of weeks use the pod is loose and doesn't stay in battery pack. Magnets would make it perfect. Only remedy I can see is buy a fresh pod.
Got hooked with the infinix went to the novo fell in love so much bought 3 more due to the small battery and couldn't put it done. I do wish the auto draw was still there. Haven't used the 0.6 ohm coil yet but the 1.4 ohm is wonderful with salts. Only concern I have is i haven't seen replacement coils out for it yet. If someone could help me find those then this product is flawless......good stuff smok
This thing is awesome. I'm using the .6 mesh with 35 nic salt and it hits the spot. The 1.4 mtl is a little on the weak side. Looking forward to using the 1.0 ceramic whenever I can get them.
This thing kills it, nice weight smooth hit, without gettin juice in your mouth. I’m glad I decided to get this out of all the other’s I’ve seen or tried.
I ordered this device after loving my smok novo. The Nords cloud production is big, compared to the other pod systems I’ve tried myself. Currently using the 0.6 ohm coil with 3mg ejuice and love the flavor! The pull on this feels great and airflow is nice. I can’t wait to try this with the 1.4 ohm coil and salt juice! What I’m super excited for is that the pod stays while you discard the coil after it has been used up. With the novo I hated all the waste with the entire pod being thrown out. The Nord is a button triggered firing system with a LED light on it for batter life indication! Over a great device for out and about or at work.
I've been using the Aspire K3 for over a year, and while I love that product, the SMOK Nord is much better. I use 1.4 ohm coils.
I have been using pods for a long time now, I have 7 of the Smok Novos, I love the Smok Nord, longer lasting battery and bigger tank is a plus, really wish you had left off button, better taste when it's self pulled, but all in all its great.
I bought this to see how it compared to the Lost Vape Orion, all I can say is wow! Its half the price but better other than the absence of a replay feature This thing actually has better flavor from the .6 ohm mesh coil that the .25 or .5 on the Orion. I may just retire the Orion to being my backup.
Smok Nord is an update to Smok Novo better mouth piece, e liquid window 3ml, 1100mah, and sub ohming you can’t ask for a better device. Excellent Job Smok.
I have tried half a dozen pod vapes with nic salts. This blows them all away! Smok Nord is definitely my go to vape now. The 1.4 ohm coil with nic salts and the 1100 battery is a perfect set up for me!!
Fantastic unit! .6 ohm coil with mesh tastes great. Have not tried the MTL coil yet. Nice to not have to carry a bigger mod around all the time.
My first pod vape and love it. Another great smok product! Great flavor only used mesh coil so far but love the size and flavor this thing packs is awesome

The Nord Kit is the latest pod-based ultraportable offering from the development and manufacturing masterminds at Smok! What makes this pocket-sized pod so intriguing? For starters, with nearly every product release, Smok takes the opportunity to drive the field further by incorporating technological and ease-of-use enhancements that leave their competitors scrambling to catch up. The Nord is certainly no exception! Bearing a striking resemblance to the widely acclaimed Smok Novo, the Nord includes a stunning array of innovative features that are sure to push this device to the top of Smok’s already impressive collection of pod offerings.
One of the more subtle, yet critically important features of the Nord is its updated and enhanced ergonomics. Changes minor in appearance, but major in feel, push the Nord miles ahead of its predecessors by offering an improved redesign in the important lip-to-device interface. Continuing the classic “duck-bill” style mouthpiece, the Nord significantly increases the comfortability of this critical area with a gentle curve at the natural resting point of the user’s lips. It’s easy to overlook subtle design improvements of this type, but trust us that even minor discomfort becomes worse over time. A device that fits you and offers exceptional comfort is more likely to become the device you reach for by default.
It’s pretty presumptuous to assume that there is a magical coil resistance that’s going to provide satisfaction for all possible users. Smok throws the one-size-fits-all approach out the window and allows you to decide what feels best… for you! Depending on your personal preferences, your favorite juice, and a number of other factors; you’ll have options to customize the feel and performance of the Nord to perfectly match your style. This is possible due to the Nord’s incredible ability to accept a variety of coils designed and produced by Smok especially for it! Vapor too hot or not enough flavor? With the Nord, you are no longer at the mercy of what the manufacturer thought was best, instead, you have the ability to tailor your Nord experience to just the way you like it!
Somewhat shockingly, Smok moves away from draw-activated firing in the Nord, a feature that once seemed to be a hallmark of the genre. Anyone with sufficient experience with pod-based devices has inevitably encountered some type of issue with draw-activated firing. Perhaps because of wayward juice making its way into the mechanism, or a piece of pocket lint blocking a critical air entry, the device can’t register the user’s inhalation. When it occurs, it is annoying at best, catastrophic at worst; and completely avoided in Smok’s incredible Nord! The Nord features the tried-and-true traditional button-activated firing mechanism that, although possibly not as convenient for some, provides an unmatched track record of proven reliability.
With the Nord, Smok introduces some radical and revolutionary changes to how we typically think about and interact with pod-based devices. Smok’s Nord definitely shakes things up, however, this kind of shake-up brings a positive and refreshing change to the exciting and rapidly evolving pod-based ultraportable genre. With a long-standing mission to create a more inclusive and user-friendly experience through advanced technology and design, Smok can declare unparalleled success with their exceptional Nord Kit.
