- Squid Industries x Orchid Vape Kit

- SMOK Trinity Alpha
So what's the verdict, which pod system is the King? After reviewing all three devices, the Orchid wins by a hair over the Lost Vape Orion. With the beautiful and unique design, the Orchid features the full display screen with variable wattage/voltage and utilizes a mesh coil. The Lost Vape is right up there at the top but the Orchid just offers a bit more for perfecting the performance of the vape experience.
The Trinity Alpha isn't a bad device but arguably the most versatile, since you can use interchangeable NORD Coils. The body doesn't feel as sturdy when compared to the Orchid & Orion, and lastly; there's no airflow control. Unfortunately, you cannot fine tune the vape experience.
