Smok continues it’s 10 year anniversary with the release of the Smok Nfix Kit. If the name looks familiar, that’s because it is! The new Nfix is based on one of Smok’s previous creations, The Infinix. Today we take a look at the differences between the two and all of the updated features.

Is it a good pod mod? Yes. I actually think it's one of the better ones when it comes to this style. Not to mention Smok has been killing the pod game recently anyway. This is a thoughtful re-issue of a product that was pretty lackluster in its original form. The pod redesign and larger battery are the key standouts from the original Infinix.

The New Smok Nfix Kit

About 3 years ago Smok started to work on their pod devices and released quite a few before they finally hit their mark with the Infinix. Clearly the market for the Infinix was to compete with Juul and other ultra-portable pod devices. The original Infinix suffered a few problems though, like the terrible coil life and battery life. So have Smok stepped up with the new Nfix? Lets take a look at the changes and new features:



Features and Design

The new and improved Smok Nfix kit comes with tons of features that were simply not possible two or three years ago. The new device is the same shape as the original Infinix and has a very similar design when it comes to functionality. The pods look very familiar as well. Unfortunately, I did not have an original Infinix pod laying around to see if they are the same size. Inside the box you will find two empty pods. At first, I thought maybe they were different in design. But alas, they are the same. The directions state that both pods can be used between 15-25 watts. You also get the device itself, a user manual, a battery safety warning, and a small USB charging cable. The box is the new “white edition” box that all of the 10th Year Anniversary products are being shipped in. It’s hard to believe Smoktech has been around that long, but they have!

Smok Nfix Kit: Just Another Pod Device?

All of the “Smok 10th Year” products are reworks of older devices it seems, with noticeable improvements. The new Nfix sports a ton of new features while keeping the same spirit of the original:

The first thing you notice about the new Nfix is the little screen at the bottom. The read out shows how much battery life you have, your wattage, and even a hit counter! To be fair, that’s not something you see very often on these smaller pod devices, unless you count the Smok RPM series. The new pods are translucent and it’s pretty easy to see your liquid level. There is a “Minimum” marker on the pod to ensure your level never drops too far, resulting in a often burned out coil. The coil that I took apart looks a lot like the RPM Series MTL coils and to be honest, it functions the same. The one button operation is easy to use since this type of device is something you “set and forget”. You probably won’t be finding yourself changing the wattage often once you have it set to your preference. Three clicks of the button allows you to set your wattage. After the wattage is set, you simply let go of the button and it records your setting. The airflow is designed to be a loose “mouth to lung” when you take a puff. There is no airflow control on the device. While not massive by any means, airflow seems to be a little bit stronger than the original Infinix. Smok Nfix Kit: Just Another Pod Device?

Testing the Smok Nfix Kit

I have been using the Nfix now for the past week or so, off and on. I used the original Infinix for quite a while when it first came out but I was ultimately disappointed in its performance. The original battery life was lacking as well as the pod quality. It seemed like some original pods lasted for a week and some lasted only a day or so. I’m happy to report that the pod life on this new Nfix is actually really good!

The redesign of the pod was for the better, as I am still using the first one out of the box. The flavor is pretty good, but certainly no comparison to Smok’s mesh coils. Right out of the box, the battery life was at 85%. I used the Nfix for about a day before I had to charge it again.

While a whole day may sound really good, I think there is one real downfall with the new design. The OLED screen. While it’s very nice to have all of that info on your pod mod, I also think it is a little unnecessary.

You see, the screen doesn’t just come on when you are adjusting the device; it comes on every time you take a puff! The screen time-out is about ten whole seconds before it finally shuts off. If you’re a chain vaper- then get used to that bright screen always being on. On the other side of that argument is the fact that it only takes about 30 minutes to charge fully. When you plug your device up it shows a countdown timer that tells you how long it will take to get to full power.

That’s a pretty cool feature and I am having a tough time with the conjuring of another device off-hand that does that.



I am a big fan of loose MTL vaping so I enjoy the hit that the Nfix provides. I wish there was some way to control the airflow so I could get it just a tad bit tighter. But the Nfix is also serviceable the way it is. Using one button for all functions sounds complicated. But as I stated above, it’s rather intuitive. Once you have the power set then there is no need for the button. Fortunately, the button has to pressed three times quickly to adjust the mod.

Otherwise, it would probably change settings in your pocket. Smok Nfix Kit: Just Another Pod Device?

The Verdict

Look, let me be real with you here: This is another pod mod. Is it a good pod mod? Yes. I actually think it’s one of the better ones when it comes to this style. Not to mention Smok has been killing the pod game recently anyway.

This is a thoughtful re-issue of a product that was pretty lackluster in its original form. The new Nfix is miles better than its older brother. The pod redesign and larger battery are the key standouts from the original Infinix. The make a world of difference when you compare the experiences.

The USB C charging is also very fast. In fact, all of these 10th Anniversary redesigned products improve upon the original.

But here lies the rub; Nfix is just another pod mod in a market that is insanely saturated right now, and has been for over a year.

That doesn’t mean it’s bad, per se. But I’m not exactly excited about it either. If I were having a dinner party with all the great/amazing vape products out there, I wouldn’t be thrilled when Nfix walks through my door holding potato salad and wearing a tacky sweater vest, especially on the heels of the superior Caliburn.

That’s not to say that Nfix doesn’t have its place. This would be a great device for someone who is just starting with vaping and wants something to “test the waters”.

The small size and ease of use are perfect for someone who wants to try vaping for the first time, especially if they want to try it on a budget.

So I’m sorry Nfix, you didn’t WOW me. Don’t take it personal Smok. It’s me…not you. And hey, that’s not to say that someone else may adore you as their first device or a vacation companion. The Nfix will suit the needs for a vaper that is always on the go and just needs a small, simple, pocket-friendly device.
