SMOK Novo Pre-Filled Pods Review
When it comes to smaller pod systems, the Smok Novo Pod Mod is high on the list as one of the most accessible devices to use. It’s arguably an easier-to-use device than similar pod systems such as Aspire’s Breeze 2 or Smok’s Infinex because it relies on pre-filled pods that you can pick up and snap into place whenever your juice runs out.
The advantages of pre-filled pods are numerous, with the most immediate difference being cleanliness. When you use refillable pod devices, the most annoying thing that can happen is to miss the refill hole and spill some over your device, making it sticky and wet. This is a waste of e-liquid and can make your experience unpleasant.
Another advantage to pre-filled pods is they’re typically available in most shops, convenience stores, and gas stations, unlike bottles of e-liquids. Here, convenience is the name of the game. The easier it is to find a pack of pre-filled pods, the more value these pods offer for a vaper.
One disadvantage to having pre-filled pods is that they don’t last as long as bottles of e-liquids and therefore, overall, cost more than getting a bottle of e-liquid. It all depends on your budget, and how much you want to spend on convenience.
There are five flavors offered for the Smok Novo: Mango, Grape, Watermelon, Purple Berry, and Tobacco. Let’s dig into each one.
A classic among vapers new and old, Mango is a tropical flavor that’s sweet, smooth, and always something you can suck on when you’re on the go. The best way to describe it is an adventure for your taste buds to take hold of and enjoy for as long as possible. Instant satisfaction mixed with extra strong salt nicotine makes this flavor one of the easier to move on from cigarettes.
Another oldie but a goodie, Grape takes shape in your mouth like a jam or a popsicle and spreads all over. While less popular overall than Mango, Grape has a juicier and fruitier aspect to its flavor profile, making it a much more niche flavor to take on. However, those that love a good grape candy swear by these e-liquids, and if they're something you can get behind there’s no reason not to indulge yourself if you have a Smok Novo.
One of the most subtle and satisfying flavors, Watermelon will always leave your mouth watering for more. There’s nothing like taking a bite of the fruit's juicy pink flesh on a hot summer afternoon, and watermelon pods are great at capturing that sensation. Watermelon isn’t as sweet or bold as Mango or Grape, but if you’re into a more low-key sweetness, it’s the perfect flavor to grab and enjoy for an entire day.
Similar to the Grape flavor, Purple Berry delivers a little more punch by adding blueberry and raspberry to the blend. This is the only multi-flavor mix of the bunch, and its' added complexity makes it a sought-after flavor for fans of the more complex. Due to the added flavors, it’s also the sourest of the blends which will be sure to keep your face puckered up the whole time.
The most classic of classic flavors, Tobacco is a time-tested flavor for new vapers trying to transition from smoking. It’s also one of the most difficult flavors to get to accurately get to taste like the real thing, but the Smok Novo’s pre-filled pods manage to do just that. If you want something that tastes familiar and you’re going through the quitting process, it would be an easy transition to try out the tobacco flavored e-liquids.
When it comes to pre-filled pods, the Smok Novo Pod Mod offers a wide variety of quality flavors. If you’re already someone who uses a Smok Novo then there’s no way to pass up these pre-filled delicacies. They may be a bit more expensive than buying an entire bottle of liquid, but it comes with a bit more convenient than anything else in vaping that you’ve experienced from quality pod mods.
