Looking at the specifications for both devices, which will be listed at the end of the article, a few differences stick out.
The NORD also features a fire button which acts as a way to turn the device off. Five clicks and you can power down your NORD to avoid any mis-fires while you are carrying the pod mod.
The fire button can also be depressed a couple times to see how much battery life is left on your device.
The NOVO is slim, sleek and compact, with an auto-draw function. Just inhale on the vape, and you'll be chucking clouds.
The simplicity of the device makes it an easy device to carry around to any social function.
Charging for the two devices functions exactly the same, just plug the MicroUSB cable into the vape device and a power source.
The NORD, however, will provide you almost twice the amount of battery life of the NOVO making it a clear choice for those longer trips where you may not be able to get to a charger very easily.
Battery life of the NORD, however, will be reduced if the user opts for the lower resistance coils (as they generally draw more power).
The NORD sports a 3ml pod while the NOVO uses a 2ml pod. The larger pod size carries more of your favorite Nicotine (or Nic Salt) e-liquid and Alternative liquids, but you lose some of the compactness of the device.
The NORD also gives you additional options for coils. There is a standard coil, ceramic coil, and sub-ohm coil configuration available.
The wider range of coil options are great for intermediate users who may be looking to optimize their flavor experience.
The SMOK NOVO
If you're a beginner or a more advanced user looking for an ultra-portable device that you can just grab and go, the NOVO will be your choice.
The smaller profile and simplicity in the design make it great for carrying in your pocket or purse/bag.
The SMOK NORD
If you're looking for extra battery life and more options, the NORD will be a better fit.
Despite the larger size, you will be able to vape longer with less refills.
