Best SMOK Nord Coils? I ONLY Use These Ones – Here’s Why…

When it comes to SMOK Nord coils, you have a few options. But what is the best option when it comes to SMOK Nord coils? Let’s investigate…


The SMOK Nord might be getting on a bit but it is still a VERY popular vape. In fact, next to the SMOK NOVO, it is one of SMOK’s most popular products.



But when it comes to coils for the SMOK Nord what are your best options?

First, let’s take a look at ALL the coil options currently available for the SMOK Nord:

SMOK Nord Coils:

And if you need spare SMOK Nord pods, you can get them too. It is advisable to switch the pods out every now and then.

These are your current options, and they all function a little differently. For instance, you can use nic salts – up to 50MG – on all of the coils. But with the 0.6ohm coil, it’ll probably get a little harsh.

For this reason, if you want to use nic salts vape juice – and you want to use high-strength stuff – I’d stick to the MTL 1.4ohm coil head. Generally, I prefer the 0.6ohm mesh coils for the SMOK Nord – they deliver better flavor.

I also ONLY ever use 50/50 vape juice in my Nord, or lower strength nic salts juice – never any higher than 25MG.

Best SMOK Nord Coil For Flavor

I’ve used all of SMOK’s standard coils for the Nord and my absolute favorite, after more than two years of using the device, is the 0.6ohm mesh coils. They deliver the best flavor, they last the longest, and you can use both 50/50 and nic salts vape juice in them.



Oddly, I find the MTL coils the worst when it comes to flavor, most notably the Ceramic ones – for some reason they just don’t seem to perform. And I’ve been through about 100 of them in my time.

With the standard 1.4ohm MTL coil for the SMOK Nord, however, I get plenty of flavor and great longevity – anywhere from 7 to 12 days normally.

Want to make your SMOK Nord coils last longer? Use good quality vape juice – this is key. You can find out current #1 recommendations below.

New Juice Recommendations

I get through plenty of vape juice each month, testing loads of different brands. If you’re interested in trying some new flavors, right now these are my current favorite vape juices: 

TRAILBLAZER – I used to hate tobacco-flavored vape juices. But then I tried Trailblazer which is a tobacco flavored juice that combines butterscotch and peanut butter. It’s rich, sumptuous, and very much an all-day vape and personal favorite of mine. I highly recommend this juice. 

1885 – I love a good milkshake, a classic American milkshake that’s made up of vanilla ice cream and milk. This just basically takes that classic American milkshake flavor and packs it into your vape tank. It tastes incredible and it comes highly recommended. 

Jungle King – If you like smooth, fruity vape juices, Jungle King is well worth a look with its amazing blend of strawberries and bananas. It tastes unlike anything I have ever vaped before (in a good way, don’t worry) and it quickly went on to become one of my all-time favorite juices. If you like exotic, sweet vape juices, be sure to check this juice out

Longest Lasting SMOK Nord Coil

I’ve been using the SMOK Nord, on and off, since around 2019 and in that time I have probably gone through hundreds of coils. As noted earlier, I have never had much luck with SMOK’s ceramic coils for the Nord – I just can’t seem to get them to play ball.

The ceramic SMOK Nord coils seem to fail a lot quicker than the standard coil and the mesh coil. Whether this is down to SMOK’s notorious QC issues or just my own bad luck remains to be seen. I am of the opinion, however, that it is something to do with how SMOK designs the coil.

For overall longevity, the coil that lasts the longest – in my experience – is either the 0.6ohm mesh coil or the standard 1.4ohm MTL coil. These are the coils I use most often and they are always usually pretty consistent with respect to performance and how long they last.

Best case scenario? You’re looking at 8-12 days between a change. If you get a dud batch, and this does happen, you’re looking at hours. And this sucks. Make sure you keep your receipts and ALWAYS pursue a refund when this happens.

Because when you’re dealing with SMOK coils, even its SMOK Nord coils, you do get the occasional dud batch. In my time with the device, I think I’ve had maybe seven or eight dud batches of SMOK Nord coils.

But because I got mine via a decent retailer, they were always happy to refund me the money.

Best SMOK Nord Coil – Let’s Recap…

If you want to use high-strength nic salts in your SMOK Nord, anything above 35MG, stick with the 1.4ohm standard coil.

If you’re going to use 50/50 vape juice or nic salts juice that is 25MG in strength or lower, you’re fine with the 0.6ohm mesh coil.

I would advise you to AVOID the ceramic SMOK Nord coil like the plague; it is the worst for flavor, quality control, and performance.

Bottom line? Whatever you are vaping with the SMOK Nord, stick with the standard 1.4ohm coil and the 0.6ohm mesh coil and you shouldn’t run into too many issues.

I’ve been using the MiPod 2.0 for months now and it has been amazing. The flavor is outstanding and the coils last for weeks and weeks. Add in solid battery life via its 1250mAh battery and it is easy to see why this pod is Team VapeBeat’s current favorite.
