Mi-Pod Pro+ Review Bottom Line
The Mi-Pod Pro+ offers a classy and portable vaping experience with excellent flavor production. Its simplicity makes it ideal for new vapers. The device excels in ease of use, portability, and pod longevity, with a noteworthy battery life and fast charging. Overall, the Mi-Pod Pro+ is recommended for those prioritizing simplicity and flavorful vaping.
The Mi-Pod brand has emerged as a notable contender as one of the most sound manufacturers in the vape pod industry, building on the success of its predecessor, the Mi-Pod Pro+ has a lot of eyes on it. Boasting a classy design, a plethora of color options, and a lightweight, portable build, the Mi-Pod Pro+ aims to provide a seamless and enjoyable vaping experience. In this comprehensive review, we’ll delve into the first impressions, features and functions, basic operations, performance, and what’s included in the kit.
First Impressions: Classy Design and Portable Appeal
Upon unboxing the Mi-Pod Pro+, the first striking feature is its classy design. The “Black Raw” version, in particular, stands out with textured leather material, exuding a stylish feel. The device comes in multiple different colors and patterns, offering a variety of options ranging from classy to more playful designs. Measuring at 55mm tall, 53mm wide, and 15mm thick, the square-shaped pod vape is remarkably light and portable, fitting effortlessly into pockets or bags. Additionally, it features a lanyard anchor spot for users interested in using a lanyard, with a couple included in the kit.
One intriguing feature is the “ejuice viewing window,” shaped like the Mi-Pod logo. However, it only reveals the bottom portion of the pod, half of which is the base of the pod. Despite its limited utility, this window adds to the overall classy appearance of the device. If you want to see the e-juice, just rotate the pod 180 degrees and it’s easier enough to see your levels!
The LED battery indicator, shining through the MiPod window, serves its purpose but has limitations. It only lights up during vaping, making it challenging to monitor the battery level and making you go cross eyed when trying to see! The pod, which pressure-fits and clicks into the device, can be tricky to remove due to its secure placement, as some have reported, but we didn’t really find this an issue. The Type-C charging port, an upgrade from Micro-USB, is conveniently located on one side of the device, along with the responsive power button.
Features and Functions: Simplicity as the Key
The Mi-Pod Pro+ prides itself on simplicity. It comes with a single power button and lacks adjustable airflow or wattage settings, making it a user-friendly device suitable for both new vapers and those seeking a straightforward experience. The absence of complex features and modes ensures a hassle-free setup.
To start using the device, choose one of the two included 0.9Ω Mesh Pods, unplug the rubber stopper on the side, fill it with ejuice, and wait for approximately 5 minutes before vaping to allow the cotton to be well saturated prior, the worst thing you can experience in vaping is a dry hit, and this waiting eliminates this possibility. The device activates with five presses of the power button and operates through draw activation, offering a loose Mouth-to-Lung (MTL) draw. However, the lack of airflow adjustment might disappoint users looking for a tighter draw.
The Mi-Pod Pro+ also has a “stealth mode,” hold the power button down until the light flashes twice, this activates and deactivated this mode. Useful if you don’t want the led lighting up each time you vape. The device operates at a maximum wattage of 15W when fully charged, with the draw weakening slightly as the battery depletes.
Basic Operations and Kit Contents: Effortless Vaping
The Mi-Pod Pro+ kit includes the following items:
- Mi-Pod Pro+ Device
- 2 x 0.9Ω Refillable Pods
- USB-C Cable
- User Manual
The device’s basic operations involve inserting the chosen pod, turning on the device with five power button presses, and inhaling on the mouthpiece to start vaping.
Performance: Flavorful and Reliable
Despite its simplicity, the Mi-Pod Pro+ delivers a remarkable vaping experience. The loose MTL draw may not suit everyone’s preferences, but it remains enjoyable. The flavor from the 0.9Ω pods is noteworthy, surpassing expectations and providing nuanced and subtle flavor notes, especially with low-strength nicotine ejuices or nicotine salts, to really maximize the flavor, although this is purely on each users own taste!
The pods demonstrate good longevity, with a capacity of 2ml and a mesh coil structure. We found that refilling the same pod multiple times without experiencing dry or burnt hits and the coils last a long time. As we said earlier, the draw strength gradually diminishes as the battery depletes, emphasizing the importance of regular charging for optimal performance.
Battery and Charging: Impressive Endurance
The Mi-Pod Pro+ houses a built-in, non-removable 950mAh battery, delivering commendable usage time. On average, heavy vapers can expect around two days of use per charge, with the device firing up to a maximum of 15W. The LED indicator signals battery life through colors:
- Blue: 3.7V, Full Battery
- Purple: 3.4 to 3.7V, 50% – 99% Battery
- Red: 3.4V, below 50% Battery
Charging the device is swift and convenient with the 1A Type-C port, taking approximately 60 minutes to reach a full charge from dead. The LED flashes blue ten times when the device is fully charged.
