The Suorin Air Plus pod system is up for review today and I have to say, as more of a sub-ohm gal myself, I’m surprisingly excited about this one.
USA based vape brand, Suorin specialise in pod devices and it shows, with a list of sleek and convenient pod systems, including the original Suorin Air, the Suorin iShare and the Suorin Drop, a replaceable battery pod.
What Can We Expect from the Air Plus by Suorin?
You know that old saying about ‘better to be master of one than master of none,’ well, judging by my experience with the Air Plus, Suorin are masters of their speciality. When they first hit the scene they were a regular on our Best Pod Vape list.
The Air Plus keeps the Suorin signature slim line look while still housing an impressive 930mAh battery. It also comes with two refillable pods (0.7ohm and 1.0ohm) that offer different vape experiences.
All I can do is drop a hint to our admin, Jonny, to send me more gear from this awesome brand, before I give you the low down on this sexy, sexy, card-style pod!
This device was sent free of charge for the purposes of review. As always, my views are my own.

Design and Build Quality
On opening up the neat, quality white box packaging, I’m delighted to find a pod style vape like no other in my collection!
Shaped like a credit card, this stylish, sleek pod consists of a battery module and replaceable cartridge/mouthpiece system, which slots into the top of the battery to provide a convenient, draw activated vape.
The 930 mAh battery is actually smaller than a credit card, by a full 5mm down one long side and across the top.
It’s 1cm thick but seems thinner, thanks to its rounded, ergonomic edging.
The Suorin Air Plus is able to stand upright on its base with surprisingly good balance and you’ve never seen a pod looking so sophisticated and spacey, let me tell you.
The battery/body has a matte-metallic finish (mine is silver) and the coating is fingerprint and scratch resistant so it maintains its pristine look.
The base has a USB-C port for charging on one side, so it lies flat to charge and the port is hidden when it stands.
There is a tiny airflow intake near the USB port on the base.
To the edge of the device, directly above the USB port, is a contrasting black tinted plastic.
This hides within it a row of LED indicators which light up along the edge of the device to reveal battery levels.
The battery levels are shown as the following:
- One Light = 20% or under battery remaining
- Two Lights = 20-40%
- Three Lights = 40-60%
- Four Lights = 60-80%
- Five Lights = 80-100%
The plastic edge ends a little shy of the edge on the opposite side, this acts as a guide to show you which way around do insert your cartridge.
Two strong magnets and connects are visible within the recess at the top of the battery section.
The metallic face, which wraps around the sides without the plastic, has a small Suorin Air Plus brand, following the line of the plastic inlay at the bottom off one side. There is Suorin branding near the centre of the opposite side.
The cartridge, once fitted, protrudes 15 mm above the whole top of the batter section, and appears continuous with the plastic inlay over the LED lights, as its made out of matching plastic.
The tint, however, is slightly less pronounced, making juice levels within the cartridge really easy to read.
There is an elongated opening on the corner above the LED, which is where you draw. So if, like me, you are a natural born card-corner chewer, this device will seem like stress-releasing mana from the heavens above.
Initially, you might suck on the wrong corner, but you will soon learn that the black plastic side is in line with the opening.
The cartridge has to be removed for you to see the little coil near its base, as well as a juice port with a little fixed stopper that has a sort of flap on it to help you get a grip on it.
The port stopper is bright red, which is handy.
Otherwise, the whole inside of that fairly large cartridge is all juice tank, save a little square section around the actually draw hole, in which vapour can circulate as you draw.
This pod looks glorious, that is all I can say.
How to Fill The Suorin Air Plus Cartridge
The fill port is a really decent size, considering this is a pod.
I’m guessing that the brand anticipated larger nozzles when they provided a choice of cartridges for both nic salts and regular VG juices.
While I love how securely the cartridge port closes with this red silicone stopper, I did have difficulty actually closing it once or twice, as you have to get it in there just right, pushing both protective ridges in through that hole.
That said, this cartridge is certainly leak proof!
How Does The Suorin Air Plus Perform?
There are just so many things that really impressed me.
First up, ergonomics and convenience, the way it slides into your pocket and into your hand right next to your phone or your sub ohm vape. The feel of the mouthpiece and the look of the device, all these are really unique and really delightful.
Onto airflow, I don’t believe I’ve enjoyed a pod with a smoother, less crackly airflow. I found this pod perfect for both mouth to lung (MTL) and short burst restrictive direct to lung (DTL), since the airflow is on the open side, for a device of this nature.
I really surprised myself by growing so fond of vaping the Suorin Air Plus that, at times, I actually left my favourite sub ohm tank and mod behind, content to just use this one.
That said, I actually vaped far more heavily on the first cartridge (the regular nic juice, 0.7 ohm) than I usually would for a pod vape review.
I am amazed by how the coils held up…and utterly amazed by the battery life, but I will get into those features in depth, in the relevant sections below.
The draw activation works without fail and there have been no issues with it getting stuck on draw and so on.
The massive 3.2 ml capacity of this pod is incredible. So convenient, it goes a long way, with intermittent use, a fill can see you through at least 2 days!
All in all, this may well be the most convenient, user friendly and pleasant vaping pod that I own…and that is just my humble opinion.
Flavour and Cloud
The 0.7 Ohm cartridge is designed for use with a 70/30 VG/PG ratio liquid…really unique for a pod system and really well executed.
I vaped this cartridge day in and day out, over-taxing it with constant DTL hits and, honest to the vape gods, it held up like a trooper. It’s starting to give a bit of a burnt flavour now but bless its soul, it’s earned it!
Flavour and fragrance is there, not overly pronounced but you can definitely tell what juice you’re vaping.
Vapour production is excellent for this class, partly thanks to that 22W max output, partly just an awesome coil .
1 Ohm Cartridge
This little guy is made for your nic salt vaping, it’s got some really good flavour and, once again, it’s a staunch little coil that can stand up to a serious beating.
Vapour production is solid but ever so slightly less than the other coil, probably partly due to the juice type, which naturally produces less vapour.
I must tell you at this point to watch out, this thing is so good to vape, you’ll be in danger of a nic salt OD if you aren’t careful.
I think that flavour on this coil is slightly more pronounced for the same reason, the thinner nic salt juice allows more flavour to come through. Not sure which coil I like better, I love them both!
This feature blew me away.
Considering that wattage output is actually quite high for a pod device, and considering the fact that I was using this device constantly, like a regular vape. I can hardly believe the fact that I only have to charge this device every 3rd day!!!!!
This chip obviously conserves battery life magically, I cannot explain it, honestly. It is spectacularly convenient.
And to top it all off, it charges in record time, from one to five LEDs in less than 50 minutes.
- It’s beautiful, ergonomic and sleek
- It doesn’t leak
- It has outstanding battery life and charges fast
- It offers coils for 2 types of e-juice
- Great vapour production
- Good flavour
- Works for DTL and MTL, with a smooth and slightly open airflow
- It might make you love pod mods 🙂
Final Review Verdict
In fact, I’m so impressed with the Suorin Air Plus pod system and the design, that I’ve decided I’m no longer just a sub-ohm gal, I’m a pod gal now too!!!
I will honestly be buying even more cartridges than the extras I was sent because I doubt I will see such a good pod in a long time, this one is hard to beat, so convenient and comfortable on every level.
From vapour production and juice consumption to battery life and staggeringly good looks, the Air Plus comes very highly recommended.
