The brand new SMOK NOVO 2 is the advanced and upgraded version of the original NOVO Pod System. The NOVO 2 has been optimized with new features such as air-take grooves on both sides for bringing in more air, an improved LED light indicator and a larger internal battery. But the question everyone is asking "Is it better than the original?" Let's take a deeper dive and see if it's worth the purchase.
|NOVO 2||Original NOVO|
|Resistance||0.8 - 1.4||0.8 - 1.5-ohm|
|Dimensions||88.3 x 24.5 x 14.5||88.3 x 24.3 x 14.3|
The NOVO 2
SMOKtech has completely redesigned the NOVO 2. Available in eight color configurations such as Resin Blue/Black, 7-Color, Blue/Brown, etc, the NOVO 2 best-updated feature is the bigger 800mAh battery capacity. The original NOVO only had a 450mAh battery, so almost doubling the capacity makes it more convenient for you to vape all day long. Per SMOKtech, the average vaper can take 200 puffs per day without having to charge the device for three days.
The previous NOVO presented auto-draw firing mechanism. Some people had reported the design misfired in vapers pockets and/or bags but the newly redesigned auto-draw system on the NOVO 2 contains upgraded sensors on the side of the U-shaped airflow intake.
The Airflow Design
The NOVO 2 features airflow slots on both sides of the device. The air starts from the bottom of the bottom, then passes through upwards to the coil and into the mouthpiece, hence the U-shaped airflow design. Due to this design, the draw is noticeably tighter when compared to the original NOVO and its bigger brother the NORD.
The magnetic connection for the refillable pods contains two grooves for any condensation, so when vapor is locked into the grooves, this allows the vapor to dissipate without causing any issues to the proprietary connection.
Improved LED Light
Based on customer feedback, SMOK has improved the LED Light indicator with three different colors distinguishing the three levels.
- >70% -- Green
- 30%-70% -- Orange
- <30% -- Red
With a bigger battery capacity, the NOVO 2 can output more power from 6-25W. The new onboard chip allows the device to fire consistently even when the battery is running low.
SMOK released three new pods to complement the NOVO 2 -- 1.0-ohm Mesh, 1.4-ohm Dual Coil MTL, and 1.4-ohm Quartz. Although there are new pods, the NOVO 2 is compatible with the original NOVO Pods. Take a look at what each new pod is designed for:
- 1.0-ohm Mesh - Large heating area, providing longer-lasting coils and thick clouds.
- 1.4-ohm DC MTL - Dual Coil delivering a smooth throat-hit and pure taste for perfect MTL vaping.
- 1.4-ohm Quartz - Rapid heating with intense vapor production.
If you were a fan of the original NOVO, then you'll love the resigned NOVO 2 more. Even if you didn't experience the original, the NOVO 2 is a solid choice for vapers looking for a quality pod system. The upgraded 800mAh battery with the U-shaped airflow, new pods with the compatibility of the original pods, and available in a variety of different color options.
