    I did this tonight With a lighter. It was so easy I was amazed.
    Will keep an eye on things this week to see if it aleviates condensation.

    It does make the mouthpiece a little thinner, which is also okay w/me.

    As it turns out, I really didn't "need" to do this. If an infintesimal amount of eliquid leaks out, I just q-tip it out. Most of the time, I have found that just really wiping down my pod, and the bottom of it, after refilling, there will be no sign of eliquid leaking.

    I ended up buying another NORD. I was going to try something else, but really, I am pretty okay with this pod system, and I like the mAh and refilling it is a BREEZE......no complaints.

    It's my first and only pod system, but why change things up if you're happy? And I like only having to purchase 1 kind of coil, and having all my pods the same. I like teh height and width, too, and the weight. guess i just lucked out.

    It's my only vape gear now, 7 years into vaping (though I took some time off w/out vaping at all, and never have gone back to cigs). I don't need a whole lot anymore. When these die, I will probably quit altogether again.

    yup after spend some time n money with other pods, nord still my favorite, now more toward pasito because of RBA so i vape any juice i want but in term of size, performance, weight n mouth piece comfortable, i still prefer Nord over pasito.

    I went thru my "experimenting phase" in 2012-2015. Not really willing to do it again, not willing to spend the $$ again, and just was looking for something that I can get by using w/out hating it. I'm sure there are some really great pods out there, but I just don't feel like ordering and testing and spending the $$ to do so. If I was still in my 1st two years of vaping, I would, however.

    Hi all. I just bought a Smok Nord, and it comes with 2 coils (1.4 and .6), and I bought a 6MG juice and a 30MG Nic Salt juice with it, and used the .6 with the regular juice and the 1.4 for the salt juice.

    Both seem ok, but I'd like to hear what juice/coil combination some of you guys are using.

    I came from a Revenger, which I loved, but tired of traveling with it and all the stuff I needed, etc, so have bought this small device.

    I'm thinking maybe I'd like the 30MG Salt Nic juice with the .8 coil, but would like to know what combination others are finding best with this device.

    And maybe there are other variables, but if you could answer any of these questions in general:

    1. Would the battery last longer using the 1.4 coil or the .6 coil throughout the day?

    2. Would the .8 coil be good for salt nic juices?

    3. For those who have tried the .6, .8 and 1.4 coils, which is your personal fav and why?

    4. How long are your coils lasting on the 3 coil versions?

    5. Which coil would theoretically last the longest, or does it depend on other factors, like juice, etc?

    I appreciate any thoughts on this, as I want to go ahead and decide which setup I think is best before leaving the States for several months, when I won't be able to easily replace this or that.

    Been using the Nord for 2 months now. Over-all pleasantly surprised how much I like it. First Smok product for me- due to the negative QC reputation.
    I prefer DL over MTL so I find the .6 works better for me. The 1.4 is a bit more restrictive and a cooler vape. I had seen some .8 ohm coils for it but haven't tried them.
    As far as your questions.
    1. battery will last longer with 1.4 vs .6 Not sure how much longer. I can get 4-5 hours of frequent / steady vaping, but not chain vaping, from the .6 coils. The battery and juice seem to run out pretty close to each other.
    2. Maybe my opinion, but salt nic can be used in any coil. I use freebase only. ( I have way too many DIY juices in rotation to start make versions with freebase AND nic salts). I make 6mg juice. Can't speak from experience, but I'm thinking you need to be careful with the 30mg, even in the 1.4 coil. Sounds like way too much nic for me and my vaping style.
    3. As mentioned- the .6 coil is more for DL. The 1.4 is a restictive DL (for me). OK but I like the draw looser. Flavor wise, bot too much of a difference.
    4. I have 2 nords, and an Trinity Alpha I use for stealth vaping at work. (Although it's onlt stealth due to the size of the devices. The vapor production is anything but stealth! I would say I get about 6-10 refills before a drop off in flavor. While I enjoy flavored juices- I keep my flavors lighter so the flavor drop off may be more noticeable with highly flavored juice.
    5. After trying the 1.4 that came with the unit, I have only used the .6 coils. So I cannot definitively say which will last longer. BUT, I believe the .6 have more cotton per coil, so they may last a bit longer before a burnt or no taste situation occurs.

    I posted my initial problem with the Nord here: New...need help

    Now that I’m using the right juice (70/30 Nic Salt) I’ll love this device even more if I can get the air flow/whistle issue resolved.

    Thanks for the Reviews of the Smok Nord. My purchase will include a 5-pack of coils at the same time.
    • Just wondering what you like better ~ the 0.6 ohm Mesh Coil, or the 1.4 ohm Regular Coil?
    • How's the performance & satisfaction of the Regular Coil?
    • Do BOTH styles of coils last around 2 weeks even with Nic Salts, and the Regular Coil lasts longer correct?
    • Also a bit confused re which coil to use with regular eLiquid, versus Nic Salts, and what mg?
    Thanks Again!!

    I vape with the .6 ohm coil, but most of my relatives prefer the 1.4 ohm coil. As SonnyCool said the 1.4 is best for nic salts, but you can vape freebase with the 1.4 if you chose, none of my friends or relatives use nic salts. I use coil friendly(diy) juice and get about 60/75 ml from a coil. When I mix for the 1.4 I use 50/50 juice, when I mix for myself(.6 ohm), I use 30pg/70vg. The nic mg is entirely up to you.

    I use the 1.4 coil in 2 Nords which provide a MTL vape. I have another Nord set up with the .6 coil for a DL hit. I use 18mg in all of the Nords, doesn't matter which coil. I get much better battery life with the 1.4 coils. Coil life for me is pretty good as I use DIY mixes in my Nords and they are not very sweet and have 3-4% total flavorings. They are not my only device I use daily so not really sure how long a coil would last with regular use.

    As for nic salts vrs freebase nic, it really depends more on how sweet or dark your juice is. My understanding is, both regular nic and nic salts can be used in any device. It is just nicotine in different forms.

    Personally, I only use a few salt liquids for stuff that I like and does not come in 12mg-18mg. I like throat hit, nic salts tend to not give me one. Plus, salts seem to hit fast but I tend to vape more like the satisfaction fades quickly where I want another hit more often.

    @MrsWood are you specifically referring to the Smok NORD, or Smok in general?

    HOPE SO... and the Smok Nord is kinda like a 2nd version upgrade from the older model so hopefully Smok is sticking with this direction.

    I took one hit on the .6 coil and quickly realized that I did not care for it and prefer the MTL 1.4 better.

    I had HORRIBLE spitback with my Nord the first few days using 50/50 Nic Salts. Switched to 35mg 70/30 nic salt and it works like a charm.

    Also, the video linked earlier in this thread about fixing the leak issue by only inserting the pod until the light flashes worked. I’ve notice way less leaking AND it got rid of the whistle problem I was having. If I fully insert the pod and take a hit it sounds like air/window coming in through a cracked window.

    So far I’ve gone through about 15ml of juice in three days and the coil is going strong.

    As far as the 'leak' - by the time the tank (and battery) are depleted there is about a drop of juice in the well where the pod goes. This has been happening consistently for many months ( regardless of juice). *BUT* I do not see this as a problem.- it has not caused any issues with the unit (battery itself). I just dab up the small amount, refill, and move on. Will it cause an issue in the very long term? I don't know- but so far no signs of that. The battery (any built in, non replaceable) will be done in about a year, so these will not last forever either way.
