SMOK Novo Comparison – Which is the best?
Hot on the heels of the super impressive and popular Novo pod system is the brand new SMOK Novo 2. Some vapers experienced operational issues with the Novo so SMOK has gone all out to address every single one of them. Before we get onto all the new cool features let’s check out the handy SMOK Novo quick comparison chart below.
What’s New With The New SMOK Novo?
The best new feature of the SMOK Novo 2 is the new battery size. Despite no noticeable change in size SMOK have managed to almost double the battery capacity. From the original Novo’s 450 mAh battery the SMOK Novo 2 has a super generous 800 mAh. This is a good enough increase to vape all day long without requiring a charge. SMOK themselves claim on their website that the Novo 2 can be vaped for 3 days after being fully charged (at approximately 200 puffs per day). Impressive stuff for such a small pod vape.
Some vapers experienced an issue with the draw activation sensor on the original Novo so SMOK has completely redesigned it. The sensor features on the side of the u-shaped airflow intake and now it protrudes from the battery contact plane to avoid contactless suction. We’ve been using the Novo 2 for over a week now and haven’t experienced any firing issues, so credit’s due to SMOK for implementing that fix.
New Novo Airflow Design
Just like the SMOK Nord the Novo 2 has a small airflow slot on both sides of the mod. This draws the air in, down to the bottom of the pod before passing upwards through the coil to the mouthpiece. Despite this update, the draw on the SMOK Novo 2 is still noticeably tighter than the Nord. A significant feature for those looking for a draw experience like smoking a cigarette.
SMOK In The Groove
Sometimes pod systems have issues with condensation. To solve this SMOK have created two grooves either side of the battery connectors. With the Novo 2, any condensation generated when vaping gets locked in the groove so it can dissipate without issue.
New LED Indicator
One of the main complaints about the original Novo was the lack of any indication of the battery level, so once again SMOK visited the drawing board. The SMOK Novo 2 features a small light indicator on the front of the device which shines when your vaping or charging. So now you can easily see how much charge you have whenever you vape. The light shines green for 70% charge or more, orange when between 30-70% and red when 30% or less. A small change but one that makes a big difference.
Output wattage on the SMOK Novo 2 is another big change. Previously the wattage range on the original was 10-16W but with the Novo 2 wattage ranges from 6W all the way to 25W. With an improvement of an optimized charging port and motherboard structure, SMOK has created a combination of high performance and longer battery life. Despite this significant improvement here at vaping.com we like to keep our Novo 2 in the green for optimal performance levels. That said performance remains excellent all the way into the red.
New Novo Coil Options
With the Novo 2 you have multiple pods to choose from the Novo Pod Family. Not only do you get 3 brand new Novo 2 pod options you also get to choose from the original range of SMOK Novo replacement pods.
