As soon as I saw the first photos of the Snowwolf Wocket Pod Kit I knew I had to get my hands on one!
I mean it really is pretty!
I am a huge fan of pod vaping devices at the moment as I am just celebrating 8 weeks off the ciggies. But I am hammering 20mg Nicotine Salts to keep me from craving so any pod kits that can help me are soooo welcome!
According to Urban Dictionary a Wocket is a girl that’s small enough to fit in your pocket, so a Wocket in your pocket..
Let’s have a look if the Snowwolf Wocket Pod Kit is up to the job!
What Can We Expect From The Snowwolf Wocket Pod Kit?
The Snowwolf Wocket Pod Kit is another in a huge bunch of what I call “box Pods“.
Basically small pod mod systems in a little box shape.
The Wocket is slightly a cut above the average though. Unlike the Lost Vape Orion Q and the Smok Trinity Alpha you actually get a 0.69inch screen and proper Variable Wattage. You can choose between 5-25W in 1W increments!
Inside the body of the device is an epic 1150mAh battery which is one of the bigger capacities I have seen in this type of kit. I think only beaten by the Horizon Magico Pod Kit.
The e-liquid lives in the removable pod which will hold up to 3ml of e-liquid in standard versions. However TPD compliant versions will only hold 2ml.
There is a top filling cap and you have two airflow adjustment options as well.
The pod also contains the replaceable coil head – which always gets brownie points with me – I don’t like having to throw away a whole pod when only the coil needs replacing.
You only get one coil option which is a 0.7ohm Kanthal A1 mesh coil.
There are 6 colour options to choose from – Lava Red, Jada Green, Onyx Rose, Unicorn Rainbow, Marble Gold and Silver Stardust.
Let’s get stuck in and see if this can make it as one of the best pod mods in my collection.

Build Quality & Design
I received the Snowwolf Wocket Pod Kit in the Silver Stardust design and it is just as beautiful in real life!
I also really love the packaging apart from a slightly awkward box which has no cut outs to get the lid off!
The box is well laid out and I got the prettiest gold braided USB cable – it really looks a quality kit.
This is all slightly let down by Snowwolf being super stingy and not including a pod or coils in the kit! So before you can vape on your pretty new Wocket you need to make sure you have bought the pod and coil too!
The instructions are good but the ones with the mod only have instructions for the mod. If you want details of pod removal, refilling etc you need the instructions from the pod packaging!
Also the pod package includes a handy little pack of O-rings which is great!
I really love the shape and styling of this – what a stunner!
The sides and base have a silver metal finish – even the vent holes in the base are decorative.
On the one side is the beautiful screen which I will talk more about below.
The opposite side has the “Snowwolf” name etched in and it really looks classy.
The front and back of my kit has the sparkly almost “jewel” like blue panels. They are smooth and no texture despite the pattern looking so deep and crisp.
One slight let-down on the back of the device is there is some sort of code stamped onto the inside metallic body which actually shows through the decorative panel slightly.
Not enough to be offensive but it is easy to see – was hard to capture on a photo though!
The pod is held in super firmly not a rattle in sight! In fact too flipping firmly I was struggling to remove it!
Screen and Controls
The screen is lovely and clear and all the info is laid out really well.
On the screen is the battery icon, the power level, how many puffs you have taken and the puff time (seconds).
You can reset the puff counter as described below.
The buttons are great and responsive and no rattles at all. I did find sometimes when pressing fire I accidentally covered the airflow inlet holes just above the fire button.
I love the screen and the controls on this device – no complaints at all there!
Wow could they make it any harder to remove the pod?
I could not pull it out at all. I had to resort to a little screwdriver prised between the body and the pod and once you pop it open slightly the pod pulls out easily. After about 10 removals the pod got easier to pull out!
Also pushing the pod back in is weird too it feels like it doesn’t want to fit then suddenly pops in?
There appears to be a magnetic pull on the pod plus little catches on the mid part of the pod where it meets the body.
The fill port is simple just pushes across. However I have knocked it open a couple of times so keep an eye on it.
One lovely feature is that although the pod has a kind of frosted finish, the area around the coil has a clear window. This is still tinted but lovely and clear to see your e-liquid level.
A slight problem is the shape of the pod as is has a deeper well where the coil is, if the device is tilted some of the liquid can stay in the area below the filler cap and produce a dry hit or make the e-liquid level look low.
So you need to tilt the device to fill the area where the coil is and then level it out.
There are two airflow adjustment options:
- Bottom airflow – set this by removing the pod and turning the control ring on the base of the coil. Snowwolf say to close this fully for a “MTL” vape. Hmmm…
- Top airflow – this is located on the drip tip and is a fine tuning of the output airflow.
Quick Set-up Guide
The pod comes with a coil installed and a spare coil – so you will just need to fill the pod, install it and set the device up to get going!
I will tell you how to do all of those below – in case you were wondering!
- Turn On/Off = 5 quick presses of the fire button.
- To vape = press and hold the fire button.
- Change power level = press the toggle button located below the screen and this moves through the power levels 1W at a time. When you get to 25W the next press takes you back down to 5W.
- Reset puff counter = press the fire button and the toggle button together for 3 seconds
- Lock the buttons = press the fire button 3 times quickly to lock and unlock all the buttons
Battery capacity remaining
The battery capacity remaining is displayed on the screen as an icon.
- Short circuit / no pod = “Check Pod” is displayed on the screen
- 10 second maximum fire time = fire operation will cut out to prevent overheating
- Low voltage protection = “Low Battery” is displayed on the screen
- Overheat protection = over 80°C and the screen will display “Overfire”
How To Change The Pod
Hmm easier said than done this is. I don’t know if it is my dodgy hands, my pod or this is just stupidly difficult…
- The pod appears to be held in by tabs and magnetically.
- In theory you should be able to grab the middle of the pod as shown and squeeze slightly to pull the pod out.
- I found sometimes I had to gently prise the pod away from the body using a small blade screwdriver.
- After a few removals the pod did get easier to remove thankfully!
- Once you release the main grip of the pod it comes out easily.
- To install you need to align pod carefully and push back into position.
How To Fill The Snowwolf Wocket Pod
- The filling cap just pushes across to reveal the filling port.
- Add e-liquid through the fill port.
- I found I had to tilt the pod slightly to prevent airlocks or liquid coming back out of the fill port.
- Watch the fill level through the side of the pod.
- Slide the filling cap closed.
How To Change The Coil Head
You will need to keep the airflow adjustment ring on the base of the installed coil as a new coil does not include this.
I did find I was able to change the coil with some e-liquid still left in the pod and no leaks.
If you position the pod as shown on my photos below it seemed to work!
- Remove the pod from the device.
- The coil with airflow ring just pulls out of the base of the pod.
- Unscrew the airflow ring from the coil.
- Screw the airflow ring onto the new coil.
- Push the new coil into the pod.
- Install the pod back into the device.
- Refill the pod as described above and leave to stand for at least 10 minutes for the coil to absorb the e-liquid.
How To Charge The Battery
This device can support charging rates of up to 1A. My old USB ports on my PC will only output 0.5A.
The odd icons on the instruction leaflet appear to say not to vape whilst charging – so no “Pass-through”. Oh and I haven’t a “Scooby Doo” what the “U > 18V” stuff means?
- Using the beautiful braided USB cable supplied install the small end into the USB port on the Wocket.
- Install the large USB connector into a suitable USB outlet.
- Leave to charge – the battery icon on the screen will move showing the device is charging.
- When fully charged the screen will go blank. Remove the USB cable from the device and the USB outlet.
I found it took around 2 hours (1 hour 56 mins to be exact) to charge from empty to full using the 0.5A USB port on my PC. This may be quicker with USB ports which output 1A.
How Does the Snowwolf Wocket Pod Kit Perform?
Stamped on the coil is the resistance which is 0.7ohm and the wattage rating which says 10-15W. Obviously this kit can go to a higher power than 15W so be careful not to burn your coil out.
Coil Number 1
To start with as this is a lower power pod device I decided to go with a higher nicotine e-liquid.
I chose my usual 50% VG / 50% PG Apollo Tobacco Nic Salt e-liquid which has 20mg nic strength.
Initially I set both airflow settings to the half open position. I will experiment with the airflow once I have found the sweet spot of the power!
I worked my way through the different power levels to find where it performed best.
Below 11W there wasn’t really much to write home about – there was vapour and that was about it!
From 11W onward I started to get a good vapour and throat hit – but flavour was a bit burnt up to 15W.
At 15W onwards all I was getting was a horrible burnt hit taste? The pod had been standing for several days with liquid in before I began vaping so it is not a case of incorrect priming?
Basically I didn’t push this any higher as the taste was revolting? Why? I don’t know if the coil doesn’t like this e-liquid or if I have a faulty coil?
The only other thing I can do is change the coil and try a different e-liquid? I think this is a dodgy coil to be honest.
Coil Number 2
So after the first coil appears to be dodgy I tried a new coil and this time a different e-liquid.
High VG (70%) E-liquid
I filled the tank with some IVG Bubblegum which has 70% VG and 7mg nicotine salt added.
Picked up the device to vape and all I got was gurgles and a mouth full of e-liquid.
I removed the pod and lo and behold the majority of the e-liquid was lying in the well in the top of the battery compartment! So I cleaned it all out and let it dry for a day or so. This may have been my error in not pushing the coil in fully as after this leak I didn’t notice any more.
Trying to vape this there is what can only be described as a “weird taste”.
Starting at 5W and moving up I am only tasting the menthol bit of my bubblegum liquid – which normally is a very small proportion of the actual flavour. I use this liquid a lot so I know what sort of flavour to expect.
Again I could only comfortably vape up to 14W. Above this it was getting dry and close to burnt.
Thankfully after a few tank fulls the flavour really improved and this coil is now pretty close to the Smoant Pasito 0.6ohm coil for flavour in my eyes!
Phew I love this device again – I always loved how pretty it looks just was not impressed with the vape experience.
I am running this coil at 14W and it seems pretty happy right there!
50/50 Nic Salt E-liquid
So as it does seem like the first coil I tried was in fact faulty I will try some nic salt again in here.
I have a Crazysaltzzz Bubblegum Nic Salt in 20mg nicotine strength. The flavour of this usually is pretty close to the IVG high VG so will be easier to use this on an already used coil.
So I started at 10W just to be on the safe side and I found 12W to be a nice setting with nic salts in here. Again at 15W this was turning into a very dry vape so I didn’t push this coil any higher.
The airflow on this device is more tailored for restrictive Direct to Lung (DTL) vapers.
Even with the bottom airflow almost closed and the top airflow closed this is still a very airy vape.
I wouldn’t call this an Mouth to Lung (MTL) device at all really. If you cover the airflow inlets above the fire button you can get a decent restriction!
Pod / Coil Life
The first coil was dodgy so there is possibly a quality control issue.
The second coil so far is doing well and have been using it for about 800 puffs and two different e-liquids.
The battery life will depend on your own vaping habits and obviously what power level you have the device set.
To give you a guide at 14W I got 5.5 hours of vaping and the screen showed I had taken 331 puffs. I was using low nicotine e-liquid so I was vaping more regularly than I would with nic salts for instance.
I didn’t notice any drop in power as the battery level decreased either.
- Beautiful to look at – stunning!
- Real variable wattage
- Clear screen
- Top filling and removable coils – brownie points for that
- Double airflow adjustment
- Really well made and quality accessories
- Great flavour when you have a coil that works!
- Lots of vapour
- No pod included with the kit – you have to buy this separately- bit stingy that Snowwolf!
- Only 1 coil resistance option
- Pod was super hard to remove from the mod!
- First coil was dodgy – perhaps a quality control issue?
- When pressing fire you can accidentally cover the airflow inlets quite often!
Final Review Verdict
There is no doubt this device is stunning. I love the look and feel of this.
The first coil being poor almost put me off this beautiful kit. I was close to tears as I love how pretty this is.
Luckily the second coil – after a shaky start – performed well and made me fall back in love with the little Wocket!
It is very well made and apart from a few niggles with the pod and a faulty coil this is a great value for money kit.
I hope Snowwolf will release some other coil options as I would love to use this kit for MTL vaping. I found the 0.7ohm coil and airflow to be way too airy for MTL vaping.
As I am a mainly MTL vaper with nic salts at the moment I am not using this kit as much as I would like to and that could be cured by some decent MTL coils being available.
