REPLACEMENT SMOKTECH NORD COILS AVAILABLE TO BUY NOW.
The SMOK Nord, one of the more recent pod vapes that SMOK has put out, is a pod vape with a twist. The SMOK Nord utilizes interchangeable coils rather than disposable pods, with a few different coils to choose from. At the time of writing, there are three coils available. One of the coils is about what one would expect from a pod vape, which is a 1.4 ohm kanthal coil made for use with nicotine salt vape juice.
The other two coils are where the Nord begins to stand out from the crowd. There are two sub-ohm coils available for use with the Nord: a 0.8 ohm MTL (Mouth-To-Lung) mesh coil, and 0.6 ohm DTL(Direct-To-Lung) mesh coil, making the SMOK Nord the first pod vape to offer mesh coils. Aside from the mere fact that it uses mesh coils, it's also one of few pod vapes to offer coils that suit such a variety of draw styles.
If you prefer MTL draws and nicotine salt, you can use the 1.4 ohm coil. If you want a bit more flavor and juice with a bit less nicotine but still want a MTL draw, you can use the 0.8 ohm mesh coil. If you're chasing clouds, the 0.6 ohm mesh coil offers some impressive cloud production for a pod vape and wicks fast enough to handle thicker vape juice.
Thankfully, the SMOK Nord has a battery that can handle the power that sub-ohm coils require. The Nord packs an impressively hefty 1100mAh battery into its small frame, meaning that you'll still be able to get decent battery life out of it while rocking the sub-ohm mesh coils, and even better battery life with the 1.4 ohm coil.
The Nord is a push-to-fire pod vape rather than auto-draw, which just means that you push the button found in the middle of the device to vape on it. To turn the device on, it's a simple 5 consecutive button presses with the same required to turn it off. There is also a battery life indicator in the form of an LED in the center of the button that you can activate by giving the button two quick presses.
After the two consecutive button presses the led will flash one of three colors: Green when the battery is between 70% to 100%, Orange when the battery is between 30% and 70%, and red when the battery is below 30%. The battery itself is charged through a micro USB port found on the bottom of the Nord.
The Nord pod has a 3ml capacity, which is on the higher end as far as pod vapes go. The juice fill port is located underneath a rubber plug found on the side of the pod. On the bottom of the pod is a hole for the coil. The coils aren't threaded, so you simply push the coil into place, rather than screw the coil in.
As far as size goes, the SMOK Nord is 94mm tall, 30mm wide, and 18.8 mm deep. While not considerably tall or wide, it is noticeably thick, most likely due to the size of the battery built into the Nord.
If you plan on using nicotine salt vape juice, stick with the 1.4 ohm coil or, possibly, the 0.8 ohm coil. Don't use the 0.6 ohm coil with nicotine salts. I made that mistake on my first day with the Nord and it was an unpleasantly harsh experience. Nicotine salt goes down smoother with the other coils. Also, though it seems slightly backwards, the 0.6 ohm coil is one of the few pod vape coils that actually works well with 70/30 vape juice, so if you're noticing some leaking when using 50/50 juice with the 0.6 ohm coil, try some thicker vape juice. - Ian

How To Prime And Fill Your SMOK Nord:
- Remove the pod from the body of the device.
If there is already juice and a coil in your pod, empty the pod as well as you can by pulling open the rubber plug and flicking the juice into a sink or trash can. Keep some tissues handy as there will most likely still be some juice in the pod.
Turn your pod upside down and pull the coil out of the pod. If you don't have a coil installed already, then just ignore this step.
With your new coil, apply juice to the cotton wicking material inside of the coil by putting some juice down the center chimney of the coil. Do this until the cotton windows on the outside of the coil appear wet.
With that done, we can install the coil.
Locate the hole on the bottom of the pod, line the flat sides of the coil up with the flat walls closest to the hole, and push the coil in.
Now you're ready to fill!
- With the pod removed from the device, locate the silicone plug on the side of the pod.
Lift the silicone plug up from the side that the arrow on the plug is pointing to. If your finger nails aren't quite long enough, you can use a small tool of some sort to lift it.
Now that the fill hole is exposed, fill your juice through the hole.
Push the silicone plug back into place.
Reattach the pod to the device.
If you primed your coil, turn your device on with five quick consecutive button presses, then you're ready to vape!
If you didn't prime your coil, allow the full pod to sit with the coil in it for five minutes. This will give the cotton in the coil time to fully absorb the juice.
Turn the Nord on with five quick consecutive button presses.
You're ready to vape!
