Suorin specializes in pod systems for smokers who have recently switched to vaping, or those who are in the process of quitting cigarettes. Ultra portable pod systems are easy to use, compact, lightweight, and mimic a smoker’s MTL draw to make the transition less painful. While some choose to go with pod systems like Juul that use pre-filled cartridges, you get a lot more freedom if you opt for a refillable pod system. That way, you can choose your own juices, flavors, and nicotine levels. This is incredibly important if you’re trying to wean yourself down to a lower nicotine intake. How does the Suorin Air Ultra Portable System stack up against the dozens of other pod mods on the market? Is it forgettable…or unforgettable? Read on to find out.
The Rectangular Design
This is not the smallest ultra portable pod system I have ever seen. It’s a rectangular shape, about the size of a credit card in your hand. Even though it looks like it might feel uncomfortable, it doesn’t. It is ultra thin, so you can tote this around with ease: it fits in your pocket, and I might add, the shape is a bit more stealthy than some of the other pod mods.
Suorin offers the Suorin Air Ultra Portable System in a variety of colors, including black, blue, gold, pink, silver, green, red, gray, gunmetal, and a light blue.
The Suorin Air Ultra Portable System: The Basics
Like most pod mods, there are two main components: the main mod, which includes the internal battery, the contacts, and the micro-USB port and the pod cartridge that houses the coil and your e-liquid. The internal battery is a 400mAH. It takes about an hour or two to fully charge, but you should be able to get close to a full day of vaping with the Suorin Air if you’re a moderate vaper.
On the mod, you will also find a power on and off switch near one of the bottom corners and the LED battery indicator below that. The LED will shine blue when charging, as well as blue when the battery is above a 50% charge. Below a 50% charge, the light will be red, letting you know that it’s about time to plug it in.
The Suorin Air’s Pods
The pods are made of a food-grade PETG. This means no harmful plastic chemicals will dissolve into your e-liquid. The contacts on the pod line up nicely with the contacts on the mod: there are no firing issues or connection problems. And luckily, these pods hold a max of 2ml of juice, so refilling isn’t a constant issue. To avoid messy leaking, you should be using an e-liquid with a higher viscosity (at least 60/40 VG/PG ratio) or a nicotine salt liquid.
Filling the Pods
The Suorin Air Ultra Portable System uses a standard fill design on the pods. Take the pod out of the Suorin Air mod, find the silicone plug on the bottom and remove it. Fill with liquid carefully, then put the stopper back in place. You should let the pod sit with the liquid for at least ten minutes before vaping in order to let the wicking saturate.
Vaping the Suorin Air Ultra Portable System
There are some pod mods out there that offer a few other features, which can be a complication for ex-smokers. If you want simplicity, the Suorin Air was designed for it. After filling the pod and letting it sit, insert it into the Suorin Air and flip the switch to on. Then all you need to do is take a draw.
I used the Suorin Air Ultra Portable System with a nicotine salt e-liquid called Rainbow Drops by Aqua Salt E-Liquid. The first couple of hits were a bit awkward and the flavor wasn’t coming through. I say awkward because the intake hole is located on the corner of the pod, versus the middle or top. Just a slight adjustment, though. It’s pretty easy to get used to. After the first few primer puffs, the flavor was strong and satisfying. Although pod mods aren’t made to be cloud chasing devices, this did produce a bit more vapor than I expected. The max wattage is 16W on this, and when it’s fully charged it definitely feels like 16W.
Compared to other ultra portable systems I’ve tried, I wasn’t upset with the Suorin Air. For what it is, this is a great option for ex-smokers or newbies to the vaping scene. It’s also a nice option to have for stealth vaping in situations when you are unable to bring your clunky box mod.
The Suorin Air Ultra Portable System is a Good Device for New Vapers and Ex-Smokers
While I wouldn’t go around recommending this to intermediate and advanced vapers (most of us are to into dual 18650 mods, RDAS, and sub-ohm vaping to use a pod mod that often), I would certainly tell beginners, ex-smokers, and those who prefer MTL vaping to give the Suorin Air Ultra Portable System a shot. You should be able to get close to a full day out of the battery and the Suorin Air pods deliver some very pure flavor. It’s selling for less than twenty bucks right now, too, which means you won’t have to spend much to pick one of these up.
