    I just ordered a Nord kit for myself and I thought I'd start a thread. Anxious to hear any comments, tips and tricks.

    Was intrigued about this unit as well. Seen a sale so ordered one yesterday from Eightvape. They only had the green one but had it for $24 so picked it up. Didn't pick up any extra coils as I figure I will try both to see which I like best. Will report on it once it comes in.

    I have noticed something with basically all coil cartridge devices: the coil that comes in the box is always much better and long lasting than those available as replacements. I do not know exactly why this seems to be true, but I would advise not judging coil quality by what comes in the box. The replacements are the ones you will be mostly using.

    My Nord just came in (kudos to Eightvape for super quick shipping). Initial thoughts are this feels like a quality product as it really feels solid. Using the .6 coil and I have to find something with lower nic levels. Using a 18mg and getting a bit to much with this coil. Will vape through this tank and refill with some 6mg I got laying around. Have not tried the other coil yet so nothing to report there. Lastly, I bought the green one as that is all they had. Upon further review, I like it with gold trim. Looks kinda classy. Like I said, it just came in so will have more to say later.

    Sounds good so far Vicman. I'll never use the .6 coil. Sub ohming makes me dizzy as a sh*t house mouse even with 3mg juice. :cry:

    Changed coils from the .6 to the 1.4 and like the flavor better. The vape is a little warmer than the vape from the Novo. Kinda wish they had air flow control as the draw feels similar to the draw from the EQ. I don't mind it but I like a little looser of a draw. Not bad, but would like to fine tune my vape. Feel they missed the boat on that as it is a coil type pod and other coil type pods have air control. Will vape it for a while and see how I adjust.

    As for the .6 coil, if you want a sub ohm vape for out and about and not want to drag a huge device, this would be a good device.

    D1D11978-90C2-41D6-8AB6-29DA95ADFC49.jpeg I just got mine and I’m impressed so far. Using the 1.4 coil and I’m getting good flavor, throat hit and vapor. It’s the first “pod” system I’ve tried that gives a satisfying vape. If it holds up well, I’ll definitely be getting another one.

    I was not liking the vape from the 1.4 coil but then checked the battery life and was in the red. Charged it up and liking it. Guess it loses power to the coil as the battery runs down. The vape stayed consistent until it hit a certain point, that must have been when it went into the red. Now that it charged up, I am digging this thing. Have a maple pipe tobacco in this and the taste is good. Guess I'll have to order up some 1.4 coils as that fits my style better. Might pick up an extra pod as well.

    I've been reading around about different pod systems, and so far, this one catches my attention. I am strictly MTL and like a tight, cigarette-like draw. Not too warm a vape. Does the Nord w/ the 1.4 coil seem like a potential fit for me?

    It's not a real warm vape and I'd say it's a loose MTL draw.

    Hmmm, the Nord seems to check all my boxes except for air flow control. I vape Nauti mini and Zenith on the smallest air hole. I may look around a bit more.

    Thank you.

    Try an Aspire Sprite. Adjustable air flow (not much room for adjustment but enough to produce a tight draw and uses a coil). It has decent flavor and a good solid smooth hit. Decently warm vape as well.

    This mod is awesome. Since we got them in, I haven’t had a single one returned. Also wanted to suggest a Renova Zero as well for you. Has a good right draw as well as adjustable voltage.

    Are you a shop located in the US by chance? I haven't seen any online shops that have it in yet here.

    Ordered one(red) today. I've read good reviews, so I'm hoping for a good out and about small device that has decent subohm,dtl vaping. My concern is I wonder how long the press fiting will hold up.

    No issues in the press to fire that I’ve saw so far. We’ve been selling them since they were released, only issue I have saw is that some have an issue with auto firing without being pressed.
