FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX
DeuceJack: What’s up everybody? DeucesJack and I’m back with another review. Look at this thing. Iy’s the Smok Rolo Badge. It looks like a badge. It looks like something like Doctor Spock or Captain Kirk would wear on their uniform. Kind of wacky looking, huh? Almost reminds me of the Suorin. What was that? The drop that they did but instead of having the drip tip, they put the drip tip almost on the bottom of the shape where the Suorin’s drip tip was over here. I don’t know, man. But it’s nice. It’s nice and slim. Really easy to hold.
Check out the vape. It’s got a really nice draw on it. I’ve been running some Nic Salts in it. I’ve been running this Black Unicorn Nic Salts, the grape. It kind of taste like a grape candy, like the Grape Now & Later. Really nice in here. I’ve been enjoying it.
Let’s cut down low. Let’s look at it up close and personal then we’ll come back on top. We’ll talk about it a little bit, vape it, pros, cons. We’re out of here. See you down low.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
- 1 x SMOK ROLO Badge AIO Vape Pod Kit
- 2 x SMOK ROLO Badge Cartridges
- 1 x MicroUSB Cable
- 1 x E-liquid Injection Bottle
- 1 x User Instruction Manual
All right everyone, welcome down low to the Smok Rolo Badge Pod System. This is the packaging that it comes in. You can see all the stuff over there. Scratch and sniff, sample, not for sale. There you go. And there is the back right there. What’s included with this device is one Rolo Badge, 2 pods, a USB cable, a user manual and an E-Liquid injection bottle.
Let’s open it up. See what we have here. Put that cardboard to the side there. Let’s get this box open. There we go. Good looking mod. This is the battery part. This, of course, is the pod part. Let’s put it together like that for now. Let’s put it to the side.
See what we have underneath. Take the foam insert out, cardboard out. We have a spare pod. Let’s put that to the side. We have a USB charge cable. We all got a million of those. Let’s put that to the side. We have a needle nose fill bottle with a silicon cap on it. I think that’s a really nice touch. I like that. I’m digging that, I’ll tell you that. That’s a nice touch to be able to carry this around and fill up your pod. I like that. Silica, and here we have the owner’s manual. There you go. Let’s file all that to the side.
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
Let’s take a look at this pod right here. I’m going to use a clean one for demonstration purposes. As you can see, we have two rubber grommets here. If you’re using a regular bottle tip, you might want to open another side up in order to let the air escape but if you’re using one of those needle nose injection that’s included, you only need to open up one side, stick the needle nose in there and fill it up.
This thing holds 2 mls of liquid but I have to say, when I filled it up, it felt like it held a little more. More like 2.5. There’s your drip tip right there. That’s it for the pod system.
Now, here’s the battery part of it. This thing’s a fingerprint magnet. It really is. But it’s a nice looking- it does look like a badge. Kind of looks like a Star Trek badge. Don’t get any ideas right there. I’m no Trekky. But really nice looking pod system. It really is. I think they did a good job with it. I’ve been rocking this for quite some time. It’s slim, it ’s compact, easy to put in a jacket pocket or jeans front pocket. I like it a lot.
When you take the pod out, you’ll notice that we have a negative and positive gold plated contacts here and magnets that coincide with magnets on the actual pod. It clicks in rather nicely.
One thing I wanted to go over about this Rolo Badge is, the slim form factor is one thing but one thing I really like there is the USB port right there. It’s a regular micro USB port, no fancy docking station or anything like that. I really like that. I think that’s always going to be a pro on pod systems. I hate these proprietary charging systems. Good job on that Smok or Smoke, whatever you want to call them.
The other thing I wanted to show you is, the shape is very similar to the Suorin Drop. The only difference being, instead of having the mouthpiece on the pointy part like it is on the Suorin Drop, it;s on the more flatter side on the Rolo Badge. I’m not too sure how I feel about that. I think I might have liked the drip tip to be on this side. I think that might have been better but then it would have been almost the total copy of the drop. Either way, they’re both really good form factors. This thing does vape really nice and it gives you a satisfying vape.
Let’s cut back on top. Let’s go over cons, pros and then we’re out of here as usual. See you back on top.
All right, we’re back with the Smok Badge. Look at that thing. Kind of nice looking, man. I got to say, I really dig the capacity on this thing. It says that it takes 2 mls of liquid but it feels like a lot more when you’re filling it up. I think it’s a little more than that. I think they were real conservative. It has an output of around 7 to 12 watts, gold plated contacts like the Infinix and the Fit Kit. it has magnets on the bottom of the pod system, draw activated, made out of zinc alloy. It has a nice solid feel to it. I gotta say I’ve been enjoying this. Easy to slip into a back pocket, front pocket, shirt pocket. It’s pocketable, slim, I like it. I really do. I’ve been enjoying this one.
As far as the official cons and pros go, I wish they would have told me what type of resistance range the coil is. I can’t seem to find that anywhere.
And the shape. The shape of this thing may not be for everyone. Yes, it’s the same shape as the very popular Suorin Drop except with the Suorin drop, the mouthpiece was on this side but it’s definitely the same type of shape. It’s not going to be for everyone. Some people who like those slim long ones, they’re not going to like this chubby slim one. They may not like the shape.
That’s it as far as the cons go. It doesn’t affect the vape ability of it.
Pros are going to be, love that needle nose bottle that they put in their kit. Smok has been doing it with all their pod system.
I think that’s great. I think it runs Nic Slats really well. It’s great for Nic Salt juices. We’ll give them a pro for that.
We’ll give them a pro for the pocketability. I like that.
I’m also going to give them a pro on the vape quality. I got a really nice satisfying vape on this pod system. It’s really good. I’ve been enjoying it.
The other pro I’m going to give them is, I love the tolerance on the pod system here. The way the pod actually clicks in to the battery pod of the mod, they did a great job with that. The fit of it is perfect.
I also want to give them a pro on the finish. As you know, if you’ve seen my Infinix and my Fit Kit review, those finishes, they didn’t hold up that well in my pocket. I jostle this one around and treated it the same way and put it in the same types of pockets and bags. This finish has help up really well. I’m very very impressed by that Smok or Smok, whatever you gus want to call yourself, you did a great job with it. You really did.
We’re going to have links down below where you can purchase the Smok Rolo Badge. Make sure you check it out. We’ll also have links down below for the Black Unicorn, the Grape and check out their whole line of Nic Salts. They do a great job. Grape and strawberry are fantastic. The mango was really good too.
