In Vaping Review

What is your vaping preference? Nicotine salts? Dense vapor clouds? Flexible wattage control? The Smok Nord 2 Starter Kit has certainly got you covered. Despite its compact size, the device boasts incredible performance, even over its predecessor, which is not unlikely considering Smok and their quest to keep making better mods. 

Let’s take a closer look at this mod, shall we?

Features and Specifications

  • Pod capacity – 2ml
  • Coil resistance – 0.4ohm mesh (RPM) / 0.8ohm MTL (NORD)
  • Battery capacity – 1500mAh
  • Output wattage – 1-40W
  • Dimensions – 95mm x 30.5mm x 20mm

Design and Build

Considering its dimensions, it is no surprise that this device actually feels the way it does, and by that, I mean compact and light. The total device weighs roughly 80 grams with the e-juice pod attached. Despite its larger size, the Nord 2 pod system is still pocket-friendly and easy to hold.

The device’s body is composed of zinc alloy and plastic that looks and feels excellent. The original Nord and the Nord 2 mods have the same rectangular shape with rounded sides. The contour of their mouthpieces is very similar, but if you look closely, you will discover some significant differences.

One such difference is the presence of a rectangular-shaped power button. Pressing this button five times turns the device both on or off, and you need to long press the button to fire. 

There is an OLED screen on the side of the device that is pretty clear and displays everything from the battery level to the wattage. The power button is what you also use to adjust the wattage. Press it three times to enter the setting. 

The device includes a 1500mAh rechargeable battery and an output power range of 1 to 40 watts. The battery is charged via a micro USB port at the device’s base.

All this said, the Nord 2 comes with a suite of safety features that makes a simple device seem like a big shot. Some of them include pod detection, short circuit protection, 8-second cut-off, and low voltage protection.

Nord 2 Pods

The Nord 2 pods included in the kit are made of PCTG and have a 4.5ml e-juice capacity. The Nord 2 comes with both the RPM pod and the standard Nord pod, each having a single coil pre-installed. Each pod in this kit features the same flat drip tip, a side-refill port with a silicone stopper to prevent messy spills, and bottom coil slots.

The pods sit comfortably at the top of the device and do not rattle once installed, thanks to the magnetic connection.

A preinstalled 0.4-ohm mesh coil is included with the RPM pod. For an amazing Direct-To-Lung vaping experience, the coil is specially made to be used with standard nicotine e-juices. An already-installed 0.8ohm coil is included with the Nord pod. The coil works well for a loose Mouth-to-Lung pull when using nicotine salt e-liquids.


  • Good design
  • Good vapor production
  • Good flavor production
  • Addition of the new OLED screen
  • Easy to use
  • Excellent coil life
  • Excellent coil range options


  • Nothing to see here…

Final Verdict

First off, you definitely don’t need to break the bank to get yourself this popular Nord device. You can get it for $27.75 on, and here is what you get in the pack:

  • SMOK Nord 2 Pod Device Kit
  • SMOK Nord 2 RPM Cartridge (0.4ohm Coil pre-installed)
  • SMOK Nord 2 Cartridge (0.8ohm MTL Coil pre-installed)
  • Micro USB Cable
  • User Guide

As to the question of whether or not this is worth your time, I think I would be echoing a number of vapers when I say you should definitely go for this one. This is not just because of the Smok name, but because the Nord 2 Starter Kit By Smok has completely outdone itself in terms of wattage control, coil options, larger battery for longer vape sessions, and a larger coil acceptance.
