The Smok Nord 5 is the latest in the popular and long running Nord range.
What To Expect From The Smok Nord 5 Kit…
Traditionally the Nord range were basic starter kits – aimed at beginner vapers.
MTL and DTL are types of vaping – we tell you what these terms mean in our Guide To Vape Styles.
The Nord 5 is not what I would describe as a starter kit any more.
You can replace the coils on this and it uses the RPM 3 range (same as the RPM 5 and RPM 5 Pro kits) which are definitely Direct To Lung (DTL) coils which are not compatible with higher nicotine or nic salt e-liquid.
These coils are either 0.15ohm or 0.23ohm resistance (you get both in the kit) and will need to be used at higher wattages than a MTL coil.
The pod is refillable and in standard format the capacity is 5ml or for TPD Regulated areas this is reduced to 2ml.
Looking at the main device now, this has a staggering 2000mAh battery!
Charging is at either 1.2A (Regular version) or 1.5A (Leather version) charge rate. Smok say that 1 hour 40 mins is the maximum charge time.
The output is adjustable from 5-80W – again this output is in the single battery box mod category!
Included is an airflow adjustment lever to tailor the airflow to your preference.
An 0.69in OLED screen is provided to view all your vaping data plus an LED indicator.
There are 12 colour options to choose from in 2 ranges:
Regular Range: Red Grey Dart, Blue Grey Dart, Green Blue Dart, 7-Colour Dart, Fluid Black Grey, Black Dart, Blue Pink Dart and White Dart.
Leather Range: Black, Beige White, Grey and Brown.

Sadly I think the Nord range has moved away from the starter kit category into a mini box mod device. This is no longer the simple basic starter kit it once was.
