4) Easy to Operate: Ease of simplicity is when you are able to make use of the devise without shuffling through various functions. In simpler words, what vapers usually seek is a ‘one touch operation’ capability, which is prevalent in SMOTECH Nord 2 vaping devise.
In order to fire up the devise, all you need to do is press the ‘Start Switch’ 5 times. Similarly, if you would like to switch off the devise then all you need to do is press the ‘Start Switch’ once only.
5) Improved Body Design: The overall design of the SMOKTECH Nord 2 Pod is also worth considering while opting for a vaping devise. The chic and stylish duck billed mouth of this vape Pod is super appealing.
This has been further improved with the addition of a lip curve that has been affixed to the mouthpiece. This in turn permits the vape devise to fit into your lips perfectly and enhances the overall vaping experience.
6) Spoilt for Choices in Coils: Like it or not but the overall satisfaction quotient that a Pod derives is directly dependent on the type of coils it uses. There are two coil options here. The first is Mesh based while the other is a regular one.
The Mesh based Coil is 0.6 ohm whereas the Regular Coil is 0.4 ohm. In case you desire to relish sub ohm vaping then the 0.6 Nord 2 coil is best suited for your purpose. Basically, the sub ohm vaping permits the mesh to get heated instantly thereby permitting thick clouds of voluminous water vapor to hit your lungs.
At the same time, in case you prefer the ‘Mouth to Lung’ vaping experience wherein the e-liquid tends to hit your throat without having to pass through the mouth then, you should opt for the 0.4 ohm Nord 2 coil.
7) Battery Life is now kept Transparent: The Nord 2 Pod is fortified with intelligent battery life indicator. These are the form of buttons that exhibit different colors thereby indicating the current level of your battery.
For example, if your battery power is less than 30% then, the battery indicator shall flash ‘Red’. If the battery life is more than 30% and less than 70% then, the ‘Orange’ color shall be flashed. In case your battery is more than 70% in power or even 100% then the light flashed by the indicator is ‘Green’ in color.
So, by merely checking the colors flashed across the battery indicator, you can gauge the true nature of your current battery life.
8) Always Protected and Secure: There are hordes of features that are fortified and infused in this starter kit. The Nord 2 Pod made by SmokTech e Cigarette Company has several safety mechanisms in place.

The available colors include red, red stabilizing wood, black cobra, black stabilizing wood, 7 color coil, 7 color resin, gold, white cobra and 7 color cobra.
10) Sizable E-Juice Capacity: The Nord 2 Pod from SmokTech is capable for lasting a very long time indeed. A single Pod can be filled with your choicest e-juice that has a capacity to hold half 2 milliliters of e-juice.
This is enough to ensure that you manage to vape for a long time without having the need to refill the spent cartridge. Simple replace the spent e-juice without your choicest one and enjoy the coil based or mouth to lung feel in its complete entirety.

Once this is done, you have the ability to make changes to the wattage that ranges from 1 watt to 40 watts.
12) Two Pods for Better Vaping: As if one was not enough to blow your mind away, the Nord 2 Pod from SMOK makes use of two different Pods for enhancing your overall vaping experience.
The first is a RPM coil whereas the other one is the NORD series. In case you are unable to decipher between the two, simply look carefully onto the rubber plug. The Pod category shall be mentioned there.
13) Status of Your Current Battery Life: When you are charging a spent battery but are not sure of the degree to which your battery has been charged, simply look into the OLED screen for the exact charging status. This way, you would know to what level your battery has been charged.
14) 7 Different RPM Coil Options: There are 7 types of Coil available here.
>>> The first has a mesh based coil 4.0 version that is best suited for smokers who love speedy heating. The ideal wattage here is 25 for enjoying maximum power delivery. Moreover, this version also provides the perfect flavors.
>>> The second variant is the 6.0 category coil. This has an ideal wattage of 25 watts and is best suited for those who love to ramp up really fast. Moreover, as it is a triple coil, heating up is fast and the overall flavor delivery mechanism is also efficient.
>>> In the third version, you get to keep an RPM Quartz coil that has a power output of 1.2. It is ideal for quick power delivery and enjoying enhanced flavors. This one has an ideal wattage of 12 watts.
>>> The fourth version is an RPM SC coil that has an even power delivery mechanism that works best at 14 watts. Ideally suited for vapers who are seeking thick voluminous water vapor with each puff. It also provides flavors of the best category.
>>> In the of the fifth option, you get an RBA coil that allows you to enjoy thick and voluminous water vapor production and relish the true flavors present within your e-juice. The minimum resistance level that is required is 0.25 and no more.
>>> The sixth option is in the form of MTL 3.0 coil that delivers massive vapor volume and offers excellent flavor to the end user. The ideal wattage range for this Mesh Coil is in between 10 to 15 watts. It is a long lasting product and consumes less power.
>>> In the form of the last and final RPM coil is the DC 0.8 variant. This version has two coils with an inner hole measuring 2mm. This in turn allows you to light up the wick at breakneck speed.
The overall water vapor production is speedy and the flavor too is felt at its sweetest level. If we are to discuss the ideal temperature for this coil then, I would suggest 16 watts to be best bet.
15) Five Types of NORD Coils: As I have already discussed in my Smok Nord 2 Vape Pod Starter Kit Review, apart from RPM you also have the option of enjoying the NORD coils. Well, there are 5 different types available in the Nord 2 kit.
Here is a brief on each of these:
>>> Nord DC MTL Coil: This version permits you to enjoy heavy vapor and flavor absorbing capability. The inner hole is 2mm that in turn permits faster as well as larger heating area. Ideal wattage for this is 16.
>>> Nord Mesh-MTL Coil (0.8): This is a ‘mouth to lung’ option wherein the flavor is intense and the clouds of water vapor are voluminous. Like all NORD coils, this one too enjoys a long shelf life. Ideal wattage for this is 16.
>>> The Regular Coil (DC – 0.6): The overall intensity of the flavor is high and the overall heating process is also high. It is suggested that you set your NORD 2 Pod to 20 watts to achieve the desired results.
>>> NORD Mesh Based Coil: This is also powered by 0.6 joules and is ideal for vapers who prefer sub ohm vaping. Nonetheless, it shall allow you to enjoy high voluminous water vapor with utmost ease.
>>> The Nord Regular 1.4 Coil: In case you love the ‘mouth to lung’ vape experience then, opt for the normal coil. It is specially designed for regular vapers and has a high level of water vapor production.
16) The Do it Yourself Coil: This is also known as the RBA coil wherein you have the capability of building your own coil. You are provided with a special screwdriver that helps you build the coil on your own.
All you need to do is to ensure that the resistance levels of the coils need to be checked on a regular basis. You merely need to ensure that the resistance level remains steadfast to derive optimal performance from the DIY Nord 2 Coils.
So, how do you build one?
Well, here is the 7 step process for the same:
>>> In the very first step, you need to ensure that your hands are clean and free from dirt.
>>> The next step is pulling apart the deck of the RBA coil.
>>> You need to then plant the coil in between the post and then wind its ends across the screws before tightening them. The air hole should be in position and the coils nicely fixed at the center. Just ensure that the coil does not get in the way of the base.
>>> There would be wires that are sticking out at their end. You need to snip them off using a pair of scissors.
>>> Now, take a mid-sized piece of cotton and then insert it in the middle of the coil.
>>> After placing the cotton at the center of the coil, snip the ends that are emerging from either side of the coil. You are now good to go!
