Suorin Air Pro: Card-Style Mesh Pod Kit?
Hey vapefam! Another day, another pod review for your reading pleasure!
Today, we shall have a quick but focused look at the Suorin Air Pro. This kit is in the Air series of devices from Suorin. Suorin, as a company, is not that old in the industry (founded 2016) and is not as big as the likes of Smok, for example. However, they have set themselves apart and earned their spot in the heavily congested market of pod devices and pod kits with products including the Trident and Trio 85, alongside the Air series.
As always, my review will be from my own experience of using the device as a regular vaper, as most of you vapers buying this device will be.
So, what do you get in the kit?
- Suorin Air Pro device made of zinc alloy.
- 1 x Suorin Air Pro cartridge made of PCTG and holding a whopping 4.9mL (TPD will of course be limited to 2mL), and with a 1.0-ohm mesh coil installed. Yes my dears, you’d need to replace the whole pod with this kit rather than just the coil.
- The user instructions, safety warnings, QC certificate are all condensed into one piece of folded paper.
- Micro-USB charging cable.
Youmeit.shop was also kind enough to send a lanyard that doubles as a USB cable, which is a pretty neat accessory to have, although I don’t think it comes with the kit by default.
The box that the kit comes in looks clean and is compact, which is a good thing for me (some kits out there can be too bulky and excessive in their packaging!). It has a photo of the device in front, with warnings and package contents printed around the sides and back. All in all, straightforward and clear.
What does it actually do?
- 930 mAh battery for all-day vaping.
- The output power of up to 18W.
- Slim and pocketable at 96 x 45 x 13 mm.
- Has button and auto-draw firing.
- Has 1A charging. Took me around an hour to charge to full from red.
- LED light in fire button indicates battery life (green = >41%, blue = 10-40%, red = <10%).
- And of course, has the standard safety protections we are familiar with.
OK, So How Does It Perform?
To me, the Suorin Air Pro is one of those “middling” pod kits out there. That is largely because it doesn’t have adjustable airflow: the draw is what I would characterise as a loose MTL, although you could probably pull off a cool restricted DL type of vape.
Don’t get me wrong, it still gave me a satisfying vape in the time I’ve tested it. But I just wished that Suorin added airflow control to the device or the pod, so that traditional MTL users can dial in the draw to their preference.
The pod clicks into place into the device, and the device also vibrates to tell you of a successful connection with the pod contacts. The pod also goes into the device just the one way; it is not reversible.
The pod fills from the bottom with a large enough hole for most E-liquid bottles in the market. Refilling is easy enough, although because the rubber bung covering the fill hole has a small flap for grip that is recessed into the pod, sometimes this flap can be difficult to pinch especially if you don’t have long nails. Not an issue for me, but thought it was worth mentioning in any case.
The pod is tinted but due to its size, it’s always easy to see how much juice is left in the pod. It is comfortable enough to use despite its shape. And what I mean by that is, because the whole kit is meant to resemble a “card”, then the pod section is very symmetrical, which means that you have to find the side where the coil is to take a draw.
Five clicks of the fire button turn the device on and off. The kit functions via auto-draw or the fire button, both of which are extremely responsive. The draw is warm owing to the power output but bear in mind that because this device has no wattage levels, the warmth will vary depending on how much battery you have left in the device.
The mod that I received is quite pleasing to the eye owing to its rose-coloured design and finish. It is also comfortable to grip with a sort of rubber coating allowing for good grip. It does have a bit of weight to it due to its material and battery capacity but not too heavy to make you hesitant to use it when out and about.
The fire button is slim and can be easily located on the side where the coil is.
The flavour from the coil is pretty good; I was able to thoroughly enjoy my 50/50 nicotine salts in it. However, when I left the pod to stand for a few hours with about 2mls left inside, it did start having some slight spit back that went away with further use. I also tried this pod with a 70/30 E-liquid and it performed well with it as well, which pleasantly surprised me as usual, I wouldn’t dare use 70/30 juices on MTL pods.
Should you buy it?
For a starter kit, the Suorin Air Pro performs well and can give a satisfying vape experience. What would take this product further though is if it included another pod inside the kit (if the included lone pod malfunctions, the user has no alternative pod to use) and if somehow, Suorin can incorporate airflow control.
Saying that though, this is still a pretty good option for a starter kit. If you do decide to get it, I highly recommend that you use up most of the E-liquid in the pod if you will let the pod stand for several hours before being used again. This way, you’ll avoid liquid accumulating in the coil that usually leads to spit back and potentially, leaking.
