REVIEWS MICO KIT REVIEW BY JAMES PARNELL Device Specifications: Dimensions: 56.3 × 46.5 × 14.8mm Material: Zinc Alloy Weight: 65g Battery: 700mAh internal Input Voltage: 3.3–4.4V Output Voltage: 3.0–4.0V Output Power: 10–26W Resistance Range: 0.6 – 2.0Ohm Tank Capacity: 1.7ml - User friendly - Good DTL experience - Airy MTL experience Pod system e-cigarettes are flourishing. The new industry race we’re seeing shows that the style of the pod systems are beginning to vary, with a wide mixture of open and closed pods now on the market. Last year, pod systems took on a new approach, one of fashion accessories. The Smok Mico kit has a lanyard making it a perfect example of a well-refined vape fashion item. The device is a small box-shaped pod with a handy fill window and various cool finishes. So how does it fare in performance? This pod is a draw to activate open system with a stylish edge. Featuring a 700mAh built-in battery, this device has one of the most accurate battery indicator lights we’ve seen to date. To charge the device simply plug the micro-USB into the port on the base and wait for roughly an hour. The kit includes two 1.7ml open pods, one with a regular coil at 1.0Ohm resistance and the second pod that has an Aludirome mesh coil with a 0.8Ohm resistance. An additional ceramic coil is available. Filling the pods is easy with a wide fill port on the side of the glass. The pod locks in place with a sturdy magnetic hold. The device is very basic and user-friendly no matter how experienced you are with vaping. This device receives brownie points from me as it features an on/off switch perfect for on the go vaping. I found the Mico gives a better direct-to-lung (DTL) lung experience than mouth-to-lung (MTL), which I was not expecting. Although MTL is possible, the pods do not provide enough air resistance making the pull too loose. For DTL, the vapour production is smooth and delivers a good hit. Overall the flavour produced by the Mico is really good and this device will make the most of your favourite flavour. This kit is really impressive. Its basic functions and simplistic usability make the device universal. The Mico has a creative look and feel that is available in various styles to suit all. 166 | VM22
