SMOK Rolo Badge Review Bottom Line
If your looking for a small and easy to use device when traveling around then the new Smok Rolo Badge might just be the pod system you're looking for. Easy to use and small enough to be forgotten when in your pocket this is a great tasting e-cig. Don't expect too much out of the performance, your not going to get big heavy clouds, but you will get a subtle and a tasty vape!
Well we all knew it was coming and finally SMOK have released a new POD system, an all in one device really aimed at the new vapers out there. But how does the SMOK Rolo Badge Ultra vape like and is it one for everyone? Let’s take a look to find out.
The design of this pod is awesome, everything about it just screams quality but that’s exactly what you can expect from SMOK! Even the weight, 62g is nice, making it feel like you have a supreme device with the looks that will make people notice.
The Rolo Badge ultra has been designed to be carried around with you, unlike all the best vape mods on the market which is big and pretty uncomfortable to carry nicely in your pocket. The Rolo Badge ultra though is thin and really easy to use making it perfect for those on the move a lot.
SMOK have released a number of colors for the Rolo Badge Ultra including black, chrome, gold, blue and rainbow. The Gold does look awesome in our opinion!
With just a 250mAh battery and the capacity to fire from 10-16W depending on the battery life you know straight away this isn’t going to be your huge cloud and lung hit you may be used to if you’ve vaped before. But it wasn’t designed to be! It certainly doesn’t even compare with the best vape pens! It’s in a category on its own really.
Taking a vape on it may be disappointing to most, especially if you’re trying to do a lung inhale on it, it really performs best with mouth to lung, and that’s not going to suit everyone.
Also, the amount of vapor produces is relatively on the low side, but what you do get is a nice flavor taste of your juice and a smooth vape.
Being a Pod system the SMOK Rolo Badge Ultra is really easy to use. In the head unit, there are 2 rubber caps which you lift to fill your juice. Close the rubber stops and as long as the battery unit is charged, you’re ready to go!
The head unit fits the battery unit with a magnet, making it feel well placed and reduces any rattle. Then all you need to do is puff on it. No setting up, playing with wattage or settings, just puff and it will automatically activate and let you vape.
It does remind us vapers of the best cigalikes that many people use when they first start and to be fair this is really where this device belongs. That said I do know a couple of vapers who do carry these units around with them, purely just for the convenience as opposed to the hit you get.
The SMOK Rolo Badge Ultra Portable System is not going to suit all vapers, especially the more experienced vapers who are looking for a big flavourful cloud of vape!
It is more suited to the new vaper or the vaper who want a more convenient device to carry in the pocket. Get used to using mouth to lung draws on this and you’ll be relatively satisfied.
If your looking for an e-cig to quit smoking with then this may be ideal, although that said there are better on the market.
