Given I have rekindled my love for hiking I need a pod vape that is ultra-portable, flavorful, hassle-free, leak-proof, and lightweight, so does the new SMOK Nifix meet my requirements? We will of course find out in this SMOK Nfix Kit review.
The SMOK Nfix is a small and lightweight device that operates at low-to-middle power. It is designed to favor those MTL vapers who want a sensation similar to smoking. The Nfix uses a 700mAh with variable voltage from 1W to 25W. It utilizes 3ml refillable pods containing 0.8-ohm DC coils and a side filling system. You can recharge it via the USB Type-C port in the base. The battery features a single power button with a dual firing system. so it can be fired either by pressing the power button or simply inhaling on the mouthpiece once the device has been turned on.
This was sent to me free of charge for the purpose of this review direct from SMOK. As always I will give my honest opinion after a considerable testing period.

Build Quality and Design of SMOK Nfix
The SMOK Nfix comes with eight colors and I received the black one. The colors of Nfix are really vibrant and the paint feels sleek and smooth. It stands at 110.5mm tall, 21.5mm wide, and 13mm thick. The size and shape are akin to the Uwell Caliburn. It is much narrower and thinner than most of the pod vapes on the market for easy carrying. It is very concealable and pocket-friendly. Sometimes, I just forget where I put it. The Nfix is comfortable to hold. The line engravings on both sides add a bit more grip to prevent slipping out of hands. Constructed of aluminum alloy, the Nfix weighs about 32 grams with an empty pod. It is lightweight yet sturdy. The whole body feels well-constructed and looks premium. It did survive a few accidental drops.
The Nfix has a very simple design. It has a straightforward appearance and simple operation that aren’t too flashy. The battery section has a tiny power button on the front along with a small OLED screen to show the battery life, wattage, resistance, and voltage. The branding SMOK is printed on the front side and the model name is on the other side. There is a bottom USB Type-C port for charging the 700mAh battery, which only takes about an hour for a full charge. The power button also functions as an adjustment button. There are two symmetrical tiny airflow holes on the top that allows for more air intake.
Looking into the top of the battery, you will find two gold-plated connectors. The pod cartridge is held in place with two strong magnets. The pod made of high-grade PCTG has an integrated drip tip and comes with fixed 0.8ohm DC coils. The juice window is transparent and has a minimum juice line. You have to pop the whole pod out to check the juice level. The side-filling port is wide and can accommodate most of the bottle tips without any chance of leaking.
In summary, I love the overall aesthetics of SMOK Nfix. It is modern and streamlined. So let’s see if it rocks.
Vaping SMOK Nfix
It is very little you need to do to get the SMOK Nfix started. Charging the battery would be the first thing to do. Then fill the pod via the side-filling port. The coil is fixed and pre-installed, so there is no need to replace the coil. You have to replace a new pod when the coil inside it gets expired. The life of the coil depends on how strong and how often you vape. The 0.8ohm DC coils can use with both high VG e-juices for more cloud production and high-strength nic salt for satisfying nicotine hit. Please wait at least 5min after filling the pod to get the cotton wick fully saturated, which can effectively prevent a dry hit.
Quick Start Guide of SMOK Nfix:
- Fully charge the battery and do check
- Fill the pod and insert the pod onto the battery section
- Click the power button five times to turn on or turn off the device
- Click the power button three times for wattage adjustment
- Click the power button to adjust wattage, the wattage will scroll from 1W to 25W
- When your adjustment is done, wait 3 seconds, the wattage will automatically be confirmed
- Press the fire button or directly inhale on the mouthpiece to vape
Performance of SMOK Nfix
I have had this on the go for a week, it did last for a full day with moderate use. This type of pod system is perfect for travel use as it takes up little space or weight in your pocket or bag. There was no leaking but I saw some condensation between the pod and the battery.
The performance is not bad. I used the Drip Fried Cream Cookie e-juice as well as the almost addictive Dinner Lady Blackberry Crumble nic salt. It provides a nice loose MTL draw. The flavor is good but obviously nowhere near as good as I get off a sub-ohm tank. The vapor quality is warm but never gets too hot due to the airflow system. The vapor production is not massive so it is not suitable for those cloud chasers. The vaping is quite discreet and silent.
SMOK Nfix Pod System Review
The pros heavily outweigh the cons. I really like the Nfix due to its portability. It easily slips into my pocket and almost feels no weight. The 700mAh built-in battery is enough for an entire day vape. It looks similar to the Caliburn but provides much more power output up to 25W, which is impressive. The OLED screen is clear and displays everything you need to know. The 0.8ohm DC coil delivers a pure and solid flavor. The vapor is good but not massive. If you look for a portable and discreet MTL device, the SMOK Nfix will be a good option for you.
In short, the Nfix pod kit is a well-designed device with great coil longevity. It is very easy to use. I love its simple and modern appearance. What are your thoughts on the SMOK Nfix? Leave your comment below.
