The first thing I wanna say is these Pebble pod coil heads vape AWESOME. Like truly truly awesome. Caliburn / Doric / Wenax levels of awesome. The form factor of the Inmood Pebble pod, while comfy, is overall a little bit odd and I find myself not enjoying it as much as some other more slender pods. Purely personal preference.
February 2022 Pods Ranked. Not too many surprises really, but a few wild-cards that are messing things up. Still loving the Pebble, like the G2 it feels “overclocked” to me sometimes. Otherwise, I stand by everything I said in these rankings. All pods mentioned have a review below.
Despite first seeing the Inmood Revolve pod and thinking how gimmicky it felt, it actually kinda turned around and surprised me. It’s not an ideal shape, it’s a unique shape. It’s also much heavier than most any other pod out there.
It’s a pocket, purse, backpack kinda pod. One of the things I enjoy about pods is being able to hold them in my front chest pocket. Never really been an issue before this Revolve pod. It’s not chest-pocket friendly.
It’s a SMOK pod so… you can probably guess my excitement level. The Pozz Pro ticks almost every box for me. Almost. I get the feeling that the Pozz Pro could tick a lot more boxes for a lot more people.
The hand feel is legit good and these coil heads have been… really very good. I know it’s a controversial thing to say about SMOK, but I can only speak to my experience, your mileage on the Pozz Pro coil heads might vary. Weak ass airflow control too.
I wasn’t expecting any surprises with the Vaporesso XROS NANO, but here we are. This is essentially a square version of the XROS2 ( same compatible pods ), but the XROS Nano does this “pulsing” thing that none of the other pods do. It’s not a dealbreaker really, but it’s something you will hear every time you vape. Less so with a restricted lung type of draw.
Otherwise, I like this for the same reason I mostly liked the other newer XROS2 and XROS Mini.
As I said in the video, I shot this at the end of November 2021. Everything I said still stands, and I feel the same way about the Vaporesso XROS 2 and XROS Mini right now as I did then.
I did receive the XROS Nano recently and will be doing a separate video for that little number. I’m honestly not sure where the confusion came from, but I will be including the XROS2 and XROS mini in the next pod ranking video.
Well, it turns out that the VooPoo Vinci pods AREN’T hit and miss for me, they just seem to hit now. Everything also stays very very clean. Other than my deliberate over-fill, I’ve had zero issues with leaking on the VooPoo Vinci Q and Royal pod systems.
The coils / pods taste great and feel nice and saturated. These Vinci coil heads vape worlds better IMO than those older Vinci coil heads, despite being compatible with each other, and probably actually being the same coil heads. The quality is higher, it feels like VooPoo has really dialed in their MTL coil heads.
I’m always pleasantly surprised when a pod vapes good, and the Smoant Charon Baby Plus vapes good. The RDL is very restricted, and the MTL is quite open, but both taste and feel pretty good. The switch is quick and consistent. The weight is… heavy and I don’t know if it’s good or bad.
The bottom is rounded and awful, this is something that should stand up and just refuses to. Kind of a bummer. Otherwise, it’s got a solid battery, solid capacity, and is wicked easy to fill.
After having used some good and some less than good Smok products, it was a little difficult to get excited for this Smok Novo 2s and I guess kinda for good reason. It ends up being a little underwhelming, especially in a world of really top-notch pods.
The Novo 2s is cheap and bare-bones, it might work for a year, it might work for a few days. The airflow switch might be great, or it might be awful. There are workarounds to it but… honestly… shouldn’t be necessary. I’ve had disposables that vape WORLDS better than this and were honestly more reliable than this. Kind of a shame.
