Nord 4 design
Design-wise, this is the most versatile pod kit available in the market: if you are looking for a shiny and fun looking device, with bright colours, they are available with Nord 4: blue, red, rasta, multicolour finishes are looking nice and bright. Want a more serious kit? SMOK got you covered too.
Smart design decisions are continuing in smart features too, Nord 4 has a compact yet informative OLED screen, providing you with all the necessary information such as battery percentage, power setting, coil resistance, voltage and puff counter.
Our favourite upgrade in this kit is a dual adjustable airflow control. You get relatively easy to adjust circles at the front and back of the device. The airflow control is functioning well and adjusts a big percentage of air, yet don’t expect it to be very restricted for a traditional mouth-to-lung vaping resembling a cigarette. You can mouth-to-lung with this kit, but it shines when you use it for restricted direct-to-lung vaping style. Flavour production is great but more about it below.
Being the most functional Nord device, it became slightly bigger than its predecessors but it is still a compact all in one pod kit, if you take into account, it now does everything that large box mods do. The kit is 104.9mm in height, 33.7mm in width and 24.8 mm in depth. The device weighs 125g.
Flavour production of SMOK Nord 4
The Nord 4 kit comes with two pods and two pre-in33stalled coils. Both coils are producing a top-level flavour and will be enjoyed with most e-liquids.
The first pod is compatible with RPM and the second with RPM 2 coils. Both coil heads have mesh heating elements inside, which thanks to a large surface cover area is producing better flavours than almost any traditional wire coils.
RPM 2 Mesh 0.16ohm coil has a “looser” airflow out of the two which results in more air and larger clouds. It will shine with higher VG, around 60%, e-liquids. As resistance is low you will need to set your Nord 4 to a higher wattage, recommended 25W – 50W.
RPM Mesh 0.4ohm coil has a little bit narrower airflow channels and allows a bit less air than RPM coil. This results in more dense vapour and increased flavour. It is recommended by SMOK to vape at 25W but our suggestion is to start at lower wattage and keep increasing until you find the “sweet spot” for the e-liquid that you have in the pod.
You can always find laser-engraved wattage setting recommendations on coils made by SMOK as a general guideline.
Both pods have rubber plugs on the side. E-Liquid filling holes are large enough to be used with both, 10ml bottle nozzles and the majority of short-fill bottles nozzles.
The Nord 4 has a built-in 2000mAh battery, USB Type-C charging port. Power output is between 5W to 80W, adjustable in 1W increments. The output voltage is from 0.5V to 4.0V. The available coil resistance range is from 0.15ohm to 2.5ohms.
The device is operated with three buttons (power, up and down).
A bright OLED display on the side of the device shows wattage, voltage, coil resistance, battery percentage and puff count.
Device dimensions are 104.9mm height, 33.7mm width and 24.8 mm depth. The weight of the device, without e-liquid, is 125grams.
Airflow control rings on the back and front of the device, each one is adjusted individually.
Two pods included in the kit have a magnetic connection and push and pull coils design for easier replacement. Both pods are recommended for direct-to-lung vaping style but loose mouth-to-lung can be achieved by restricting the airflow adjustment.
