The Smok Nord Replacement Coils Series initially offered a 0.6ohm Mesh Coil and 1.4ohm MTL Coil to cater to the MTL vs. DL debate camps. Generating both plentiful output and intense flavor production and usage in a quality vaping device certainly helped propel the Nord Coil Series to its current status. After releasing, SMOK introduced a few more coil options, adding a 0.6ohm Dual Coil to increase vapor production and lower resistance MTL coils that would help bridge the gap between the MTL and DL vapers, satisfying all types of vapers and vape styles. Launched in 2018, the Nord Coil Series can still be used in many of SMOK’s newest releases, with pods designed to specifically support Nord Coils.
Smok Nord Replacement Coils Review
- 0.6ohm Stainless Mesh Coil – Sub-ohm use and for vapor production
- 1.0ohm Ceramic Coil – Best for Flavor
- 1.4ohm Standard Coil – Suited for Tight Draws and Salt Nic
Although there are plenty of coils in the Smok Nord Replacement Coils, they are reasonably straightforward and use the same resistance options among the offerings. Installed in a press-fit manner, these coils are a breeze to change, making them easy to use and is partly why they are a hit amongst vapers out there. Be sure when utilizing the Nord Coils within the SMOK product line that the device used is compatible with the coil series, usually requiring a specialized pod that accommodates coils from the Nord Coil Series. The exact wattage can generally be used for the same resistances, but certain coils may use a different recommended wattage output level. This can be discerned on the coil itself, with a recommended wattage range listed outside the coil.
Longest Lasting SMOK Nord Coil
I’ve been using the SMOK Nord, on and off, since around 2019 and in that time I have probably gone through hundreds of coils. As noted earlier, I have never had much luck with SMOK’s ceramic coils for the Nord – I can’t seem to get them to play ball.
The ceramic Smok Nord Replacement Coils seem to fail a lot quicker than the standard coil and the mesh coil. Whether this is down to SMOK’s notorious QC issues or just my own bad luck remains to be seen. I am of the opinion, however, that it is something to do with how SMOK designs the coil.
For overall longevity, the coil that lasts the longest – in my experience – is either the 0.6ohm mesh coil or the standard 1.4ohm MTL coil. These are the coils I use most often, and they are always pretty consistent for performance and how long they last.
Best case scenario? You’re looking at 8-12 days between a change. If you get a dud batch, and this does happen, you’re looking at hours. And this sucks. Make sure you keep your receipts and ALWAYS pursue a refund when this happens.
Because when you’re dealing with SMOK coils, even its Smok Nord Replacement Coils, you get the occasional dud batch. I think I’ve had maybe seven or eight dud batches of SMOK Nord coils in my time with the device.
But because I got mine via a decent retailer, they were always happy to refund me the money.
Best Smok Nord Replacement Coils – Let’s Recap…
If you want to use high-strength nic salts in your SMOK Nord, anything above 35MG, stick with the 1.4ohm standard coil.
If you’re going to use 50/50 vape juice or nic salts juice 25MG in strength or lower, you’re okay with the 0.6ohm mesh coil.
I would advise you to AVOID the ceramic SMOK Nord coil like the plague; it is the worst for flavor, quality control, and performance.
