Design & Built-in Quality

SMPO Kii review - The most cost-effective DL pod system

It has total of four colors are optional and they come in Midnight blue, Forest Green, Mosky Rose and Dark Knight(black). Its Oval-shape design is not much different from SMPO previous pod kit but with a smaller size in 83.5×32.2×13.8mm, to makes it stealthier and lighter weight. Paired with the texture of external material, any fingerprint and scratch could be avoided efficiently. I think this is one of the improvements compare with SMPO Ki which is in the Mirror-like surface.

There is no button found in this little device, all is the LED in the front side of the panel to show battery status, and draw activation to get the vape started. On the other side of the panel have the SMPO logo engraved. I would definitely say the special texture really makes so comfortable sense of holding. SMPO Kii is driven by built-in 650mAh battery to provide enough power as a pod vape device. And there is the Micro-USB charging port located under the bottom of the device, to make this pod device further neat and simple, everything in SMPO Kii is just beyond the minimalism.

SMPO KII POD

The SMPO Kii has the same pod with SMPO Ki to work for the DL vape. The strong magnetic drops the pod into the Kii battery efficiently and firmly, even do a better job than many of pod kits with magnet connection. Each of Kii pod comes with 1.8ml e-liquid capacity and fill on the top by uncovering the mouthpiece cap. There are two filling holes on the top, the coil in the middle inside separates the two sides, so you need to fill into both holes to ensure they are sufficiently filled.

In terms of the leaking issue, SMPO Kii pod prevent any spilling effectively, the pods keep dry and clean after I has used it 3 pods e-liquid, and condensation rarely could be seen there. It handle well with the high VG and makes no dry hit, very smooth vaping experience.

Performance

SMPO Kii review - The most cost-effective DL pod system

The SMPO Kii is a DL pod system, and different from full direct to lung box mod devices that with button fire, you need to vape it longer to get there. We usually make MTL works on vaping 2 to 3 seconds, but with SMPO Kii, my experience in 8-9 seconds is recommended. But it is not laborious at all, because the draw activation here is very sensitive. So here is another thing I would like to tell is MTL could be available on this device too, even though it is a DTL pod kit.

SMPO Kii will deliver the nice restricted lung hit, not as powerful as the box kit or a pod mod, but I would say that it stands out from the majority pod kits. It is not in MTL, and not in DL, it is just between of them, very nice throat hit.

And its flavor punch is good and impressive. The pod uses dual coil heating to make the e-liquid vaporization more evenly and sufficiently, so that the taste is good and no performance lost on so affordable price. Large amount of vapor production is the most highlight from SMPO Kii, really good and descent clouds delivery. So it is strongly recommended to those who love vaping tricks, SMPO Kii would not let you down. But if you vape it in MTL, the vapor and flavor both are not as strong performance as DL, the flavor would be mute and vapor didn’t get the DL production, but still good.

Flavor is about e-liquid, previous I got some vape devices and they are so nitpicking to e-liquid fill, especially for a pod kit, high VG usually is out of match. But what’s a surprise, the SMPO Kii just could handle well with diverse e-liquid. I try nic salt 50/50, and high VG 70vg /30pg, and both are satisfied. The coils keep normal working and no dry hit, it is changeable due to the normal use frequency, not due to the e-liquid unfit.

Battery life and charging

It takes 2 hours to get the SMPO Kii fully charged, it is really long time but pass-through is available, it could help to resolve the issue that you don’t need to start vaping after it fully charged. Built-in 650mAh battery, it is regular as a pod kit, but due to DL vape consumes more power in shorter time, so it doesn’t last a long time.

Charging is paired with the Micro USB, I originally think that is out of style for now, and the Type-C would be better, but it is reasonable too because the SMPO makes it cost-effective.

Verdict

SMPO Kii is worthy of being strongly recommended. Good price, good flavor, large vapor production. It has its shortages like long charging time and not long lasting battery life, but actually it is normal in a pod kit and not an engineering issue. If you are an MTL vaper and would like to start to try DL, SMPO KII would be your solid initiatory teaching material, or if you’re a cloud chaser but preferred in a more convenient way, SMPO Kii is still there for your chosen. Generally speaking, pick it up, it deserves the reputation.

Pros

Texture body makes quality in hand

Good anti-leaking

Good flavor delivery

Large amount of vapor production

High VG handle well

Nic-salt/freebase are fit in

Sensitive draw activation

Nice restricted lung hit

Cons

Battery doesn’t last long vape duration

Design & Build Quality

SMPO YOOFUN Mod Pod Kit Review

Thanks for SMPO sending me their latest launching MTL pod system YOOFUN. I would like to share this product with you to start from its design, because it is really amazing and gorgeous. It comes with four colors, black, aurora, green, and chestnut. Pleasure owns the green unit that I preferred the most. It has an IML panel that is painted with a tiger draw on double front sides, coupled with YOOFUN logo there. Adopted with zinc alloy, and Mirror-like Silver frame in dark green, makes the fingerprint could hardly see on the surface.

There are three LED indicators located by the side to show the battery power, recognize the pod wattage and remind safety protections conveniently. The one button is for both activate and fire, round shapeset in a gold frame, makes it a detail-wise pod design. Type-C charging port is on the bottom side being stealthy allows 1.5A/30min quick fully charge. And if you are an on the go vaper, the lanyard would be your thing. Pocketable and light weight creates zero burden to your hand and pocket, and lanyard just take your vape into further convenient and stylish. The top cap is available to ensure any dust prevention to keep the mouthpiece clean efficiently.

The pod connects to battery with a strong magnet, after you easily side-fill your e-liquid through enough large slot, then start vaping with draw-active or button-fire, but need to click the button 5 times to activate the device first.

Being constructed with SMPO patented CTAP 2.0 chip to ensures the solid output from this stealthy and sly vape pod system. 8 safety protections assures your vape journey with YOOFUN safe and enjoyable.

To make a long story short, this YOOFUN design has a neat and solid quality built-in, it has lightweight but never feel cheap in hand. I assure that you would love deeply with it once you try it!

 

Pod & Coils

SMPO YOOFUN Mod Pod Kit Review

The YOOFUN pods have regular 1.8ml e-liquid capacity and connect to the battery by magnetic type. Its mouthpiece is different from the flat shape like SMPO Ki, the previous DL pod from SMPO, but still comfortable to draw vape with it. The pod is transparent so the e-liquid could be checked easily and clearly.

It is filled by the side-filling on the pod, the silicon stopper effectively keeps e-liquid inside and ensures zero leakage. To be honest, I’ve refill e-juice into my unit three times so far, and what surprised me is the pod still keep dry and clean. There is two cotton swab comes with the box content, which is used to clean pod or the pod slot when leaking happen, but for now I even don’t have a chance to use it.

This YOOFUN pod system has two power output optional comes in two pods instead of the coils replaceable type like market trending for now, its black pod is for 1.1Ω/12W and blue is for 0.8Ω/15W. So there’s a suggestion, maybe if the resistance specification engraved in the pod would be better to distinguish them. For me, distinguish by the color is a little bit confused.

The black 1.1Ω/12W pod is for more regular MTL vape, which recommends the nic-salt 50VG:50PG the best; And 0.8Ω/15W is also for MTL but more close to a restricted lung hit, which means in some way it can handle well with higher VG e-liquid, around 60VG:40PG or 70VG:30PG. Both of them are adopted with cotton coil, so delivers real impressive flavor.

 

Battery Life & Charging

SMPO YOOFUN Mod Pod Kit Review

Usually when I use a pod, I don’t have too much expectation in terms of its battery life, because we think smaller size with a smaller battery. And some larger battery capacity usually used in BOX MOX or POD MOD device, but YOOFUN, such a portable size, has 800mAh large battery capacity, the long-last vaping duration could be realized on it.

Due to the two pods are in different resistance and power output, the battery life is also different duration. With 0.8ohm coil, device power off around 2 and a half pods after fully charged, and 1.1ohm coil lasts longer duration around 3 full pods when fully charged. This is normal because 0.8ohm pod has 15W larger power output. Anyway, it definitely works better than average pod systems on the market. All in all, I actually think that YOOFUN is solid choice when comes to a vape pod.

 

Performance

Neat and attractive design, fantastic vape and top-notch flavor, all high comments would come from my side, and this little pod system totally deserves it.

The YOOFUN is for both draw activate and button-triggered satisfied. Button fire design just caters to those vaper who are used to vape box mod. Its draw activate also works perfectly, even not any less power than button fire to enjoy amazing MTL vape, even vape in light draw, the sensor is so sensitive to start working.

The great and impressive flavor delivery from YOOFUN really stun me, the first flavorful puff you inhaled may last to the last puff. There are two pods ready, so let’s get start with the performance from their differences yet both solid output.

The 1.1ohm/12W pod is like kind of we call regular MTL draw that allows comfortable inhale. I used the 50VG:50PG e-liquid, and just got the most concentrate nicotine, I would say its flavor performance is top notch. It is just comparable. But with this pod, high VG is not much suitable. Actually this should not be the shortage, due to it is normal that high VG not match well in pod device. But there is a still exception in YOOFUN.

With 0.8ohm/15W, the high VG is also could be handled well and deliver perfect flavor punch. The 60VG:40PG and 70VG:30PG are recommended here, still the 60VG:40PG would work better in my vape experience with it. I use the flavor/strawberry e-liquid, and they are defined well, and product denser clouds. This pod also perfect work with 50VG:50PG nic-salt, I filled 6mg on it, the impressive throat hit is there in every puff, which is amazing.

I am so glad that have a chance to try this YOOFUN and make a review on it. The coils and the pods are really the best there, and YOOFUN just catches my preference from its design, quality, size and performance. The biggest shortage of YOOFUN, I think maybe the condensation happens when keeping chain vaping, but to be honest, it is easily acceptable for me.

 

Verdict

SMPO YOOFUN Mod Pod Kit Review

For a vape brand which only focus on pod vape research and development, SMPO is definitely do a incredibly good job on it. The stylish design, the portable size, and the quite solid performance just be there for vapers option. If need to choose a pod winner on my purchased list, then I would pick the SMPO YOOFUN up without any hesitation. And if you are looking for an on the go vape, a flavorful booster or a stylish design, then this YOOFUN would be the first even the only pod device that I would recommend to you. Just like SMPO official claimed, YOOFUN is born for flavor! But I think it is much more than that, it should be regarded as born for the best pod device should be.

 

PROS

Pocket-friendly

Efficient anti-leaking

Impressive flavor

800mAh large battery capacity

Fantastic MTL draw

Both draw activate and button fire

 

CONS

Some condensation when chain vape

Some fingerprint in IML panel

YOOFUN pod kit details

Why is the detail of this YooFun Kit incredible?
First of all, the design of the dust cover of the pod and the hanging chain is very user-friendly,
Not only does it look good, but it also greatly improves hygiene.
The second is that the packaging comes with a cotton swab, which solves the condensate of the cartridge mouthpice and cartridge groove.
Actually it should be smaller,
In this way, the condensate attached to the airway can also be cleaned.

YOOFUN pod kit review

YOOFUN pod kit battery

800mAh battery capacity is relatively small for Captain.
Personally I think that 1000mAh-1200mAh will be more suitable,
After all, there is such a space inside.
Also because it can be vaped while charging, with Type-C fast charging,
40 minutes full charge becomes a design without a problem.

YOOFUN pod kit pod/cartridge

There are two types of pods in the kit this time,
15w/0.8ohm and 12w/1.1ohm.
Let me talk about this 15w/0.8ohm,

Official description

15w/0.8ohm

Suitable for high VG vape juice.
Best recommendation 60VG: 40PG/70VG: 30PG
Fully release dense and delicate vapor.
Using cotton to further restore the taste of vape juice.
Every puff is full.

YOOFUN pod kit review

Captain brief analysis

I actually tested it, in fact, 80VG: 20PG is OK, too.
Just don’t go too fast, you know the truth.
However, I prefer 60VG: 40PG.
The taste is really rich and fragrant.
Whether it is pneumatic or manual,
The vaping process details are good.

Official description

12w/1.1ohm

Recommended nicotine salt ratio (50VG: 50PG)
Focus on the transmission of concentrated nicotine essence.
Restore the real sense of throat hit.
Enjoy a comfortable vaping experience.

YOOFUN pod kit review

Captain brief analysis

1.1ohm configuration is indeed more suitable for vaping nicotine salt juice.
But I also tried it here, 6mg and 12mg conventional vape juice are also OK.
And it feels more delicate.
There are some feelings that are not shown in other atomizers,
It is well reflected in this atomizing core.

YOOFUN pod kit review

Verdict

This YOOFUN pod kit is a product that Captain thinks is relatively complete.
Whether it’s the perfect details, or the quality of the product,
All are done very well, it can be regarded as a model of the industry.
To put it simply, it is to make the customer’s idea to a relatively extreme point.
The feeling of manual power switch mode will be a little tighter than the feeling of air switch.
The dual-core process can really give the vaper good taste.
The only drawback is the condensation of the pods.
It is indeed not perfect enough to some extent.
It makes the experience slightly poor, so it’s a priority issue.
I hope that later they can improve or upgrade it or launch new pods.
OK, I’m Captain Dirty, see you next time.
