Smok Nord Battery Comparison
The battery can make a massive difference to your vaping experience. Wattage increases generally as battery size increases, which does mean the overall size of the kit increases. So if you are after a smaller more compact vape, then go for one of the Nord kits that have a smaller battery size, but bear in mind you might need to compromise on wattage power.
Having a large battery in your kit, can not only mean power but also allows you to vape for longer without the need to charge, depending on what wattage you select. However, the charging time can be longer with a bigger battery, so it's important to consider all of these factors when selecting your perfect kit.
This series features amazing kits that will give you a fantastic experience no matter which one you choose, but, ensure to consider what you want out of a kit, versatility, ease of use, compact size, battery longevity or coil compatibility can change your vaping experience so decide what feature stands out to you when selecting your Nord device.
