We have a specification table at the end of this article to help break things down.
From a styling standpoint, both devices feature a stainless steel frame with a number of different panel options including carbon fiber and abalone.
Dimensions of the pod mods are exactly the same and each use a 2ml refillable pod. Vapers can expect to use any type of e-liquid, including freebase nicotine, nic salt, and alternative vape juices.
Both devices are adjustable through the button at the bottom of the device, use MicroUSB for charging, and are fired through the button on the side of the device.
The Orion DNA Go pod mod uses the acclaimed Evolve DNA chipset, which allows users to enjoy a fully customized vaping experience.
There are three pre-set options available, however, through Evolve's software, vapers are able to change the settings as desired.
The Orion DNA Go also features replay functionality, which will save the settings of the last puff you had, for a consistent vapor and flavor experience through the life of the pod.
The Orion Q by contrast does not feature customizable settings or replay functionality, which may be fine for the beginner to intermediate vaper who wants a product that just works out of the box.
For users looking to get the most out of their vaping experience, however, the Orion DNA Go will be the preferred device.
Please note that the refillable pods are not cross-compatible.
