The SMPO KI Pod is the latest all-in-one device from London based NEX LABS. This compact pod system can produce impressive flavor and dense clouds. The airflow is buttery smooth and it also utilizes a smart childproof filling system. This is the third rendition of the SMPO Pod. Previous models have been generally well-received from online vape reviewers because they’re reliable and trendy.
SMPO is a subsidiary of NEX LABS. Their products are designed in the UK and manufactured in China. They’ve been in business since 2018 and together make primarily modern-day pod devices. Their company vision is to innovate the vaping industry by pushing design and technology boundaries. Furthermore, keep their business simple, cost-effective, and appealing to new vapers.
The SMPO KI Pod is a compact and sleek device. It measures 80.6mm’s by 34mm’s by 15.3mm’s and is primarily made from zinc-aluminum. It feels smooth and also luxurious in hand. Inside the main chassis is a 650 mAh rechargeable battery. It should last you a few days or so of vaping. You can also conveniently turn the pod on or off via a tiny button on the front face. This doubles as a power and mode indicator too.
Charging is relatively fast via the 1A current. You can get a full charge in just 45 minutes when using the included USB charging cable that also features pass-through technology. The PCTG cartridge ontop holds 1.8ml of eliquid and is draw activated. Occasionally it didn’t fire, but this seems to be because I wasn’t pulling on it hard enough. The draw is on the looser MTL to DTL style, so a good hefty inhale is required.
The preinstalled 0.8 ohm parallel coil delivered a solid flavor profile that I was pleasantly surprised with. The three power output presets include 9, 10, and 12 watts. This is made possible by the patented CTAP chipset. It also contains seven different core fail-safes to protect you and the device. This includes short-circuiting, low voltage, overcharge, discharge, and also overuse protection.
Unlike other similar products, the SMPO KI Pod has been ingeniously made to be a top fill device. As a result, it’s childproof and ultimately mess-free. I found it effortless to fill and have yet to experience any leaks whatsoever. This device is great for on the go vaping. You can throw it in your pocket or bag without any worries at all. It combines just the right amount of lightweight materials to make it portable and durable.
The SMPO KI Pod is currently retailing for $39 USD from the official SMPO Vapors website. This is the cheapest price I could find online. Replacement cartridges are also available for $9.90 USD. I feel this is slightly expensive considering the power output, battery size, and also cartridge capacity. That being said, it’s designed in the UK, so you know you’re getting a quality product. It also helps that it looks aesthetically pleasing.
The SMPO KI Pod comes in five different colors that include white, black, green, pink, and blue. They also do some cool limited edition ombre variations. They’re super shiny and look cool. But at the same time quickly become a fingerprint magnet. I liked the modern packaging design. A two-piece fold out box contains your SMPO KI Pod, 1 x cartridge, spare e-liquid bottle, MicroUSB cable, and also a user manual.
