Pizza Dave Delivers – A Kit Review – The Nowos by Eleaf https://ift.tt/2Duep3P

Hello everyone, Pizza Dave here, delivering you a review of the Nowos kit by Eleaf. The Nowos is a compact, 80w device, which features a built-in 4400mah battery, touch screen adjustment buttons, and USB-C fast charging. The kit also comes equipped with the Ello Duro sub-ohm tank. Let’s dive down in and see how this small device performs, and as always, I will give my final thoughts down at the bottom.

DISCLAIMER: This device was sent to me by Eleaf for review.

FEATURES

The Eleaf Nowos is a compact mod with excellent lines and color options. Out of the box it looks to be classy, and very “cell phone-esque” style. The display is large and easy to read as well. One thing you’ll notice out of the gate is there are no adjustment buttons, and that is because they are hidden within the screen. The mod can handle up to a 26mm atomizer without overhang, but they look large on top of the small frame. Eleaf kept it simple with a wattage only, 80w max device here. It is great for beginners, pocket friendly, and stylish.

OPERATION

The operation of this one is very basic. 5 clicks to power up, and 5 clicks to power down. To adjust the wattage, click the fire button 3 times, which lights up two dots on the lower part of the display. These are the wattage adjustment buttons. It scrolls with decimals from 1.1-20w. From 20 on up it scrolls in 1-watt increments at a rapid pace. There you have it. It is that simple. Other notes: The display is basic and has a large font. It becomes a bit washed out by the tint of the screen, but overall it is clearly legible. The top left shows battery in %. Top right shows resistance of the atomizer. The middle shows the wattage. Also, since this device has a built-in battery, they added a reset button to the side which you can press in the event of the mod locking up in any way.

HOW IT VAPES

The Nowos is a bare bones device at best. It ramps up nice a quick for something so small and ran every atomizer I tried all the way up to 80w without any issues. I viewed a tear down video which exposed that the built-in battery is actually two 18650s. These provide battery life on point with the advertised 4400mah. I got just barely a full day of vaping out of it when running at 65w. One thing I found was the battery indication is complete garbage. It lingered in the 90-95% for what felt like an eternity. Then I vaped it a handful of times and it dropped down to 65%. A handful of puffs later, and down to 35, 20, LOW BATTERY. It did not do a consistent drop in percentage and it always left me wondering where the battery was really at. Charging this via USB C works well. I through my Samsung quick charger on this and it went from 5% to 100% in about 1hr which is excellent.

Another caveat to how it vapes is the included Ello Duro tank. I won’t cover this tank too much as I have posted about it in the past. It comes with a mesh dual coil and a single net coil (which is basically a more open mesh). The dual coil took over one tank to break in and took a lot of slow lovin’ to avoid dry hits through that first 8 mls or so. Overall, the performance of this tank is mediocre at best. It has a ton of air flow and the flavor is not amazing in any way. The only thing it has going for it is great capacity, style, and it is compatible with a ton of other (baby beast size) coils on the market. This tank does not blend well with this mod as it looks a bit on the large side on top.

FINAL THOUGHTS

The Nowos is a bit of an oddity to me. It looks great out of the box and is great for beginners thanks to the simplicity. I love the color options that they released this in. The candy apple red over a metal frame looks great on mine and there are plenty of colors for various customers. The size of this one is one of the biggest pros. It is lightweight, pocket friendly, and fits great in the hand. USB C fast charging is another pro. The cable it came with is a USB-C with an adapter for micro USB is a pro as well. This comes with some great pros that make this a solid fit for many customers, however, it comes with some cons that completely turned me off. The first con is that it is a scratch and fingerprint magnet. The display shows hairline scuffs immediately (I have a picture above that shows scratches from the FIRST time I wiped the screen off on my shirt). The battery indication jumping all around drove me crazy and sucked all my confidence out of this mod being something decent. The last con is some quality concerns. The front and back panels seem to be half ass installed, and the entire thing is glued together. My 510 pin (press fit btw) protrudes and makes my tank hover on a pedestal of ugliness. *****Eleaf has stated this is early release and that will not be part of the finished product. The tank that comes with the Nowos is rather meh and is blown out of the water by several mesh tanks now on the market. Overall, this mod is great to take on the go, but it just doesn’t do it for me. I love the look, feel, and size of the device, but the quality just doesn’t seem there.

REVIEW CRITERIA: I use each item for about two weeks to ensure I have collected enough data to adequately write a review. I use the same e liquid in tanks or rdas throughout all my reviews to ensure that I am comparing apples to apples between all modern equipment. I do not post reviews until I feel confident that I have used it enough to give an educated review. The reason I started doing reviews was due to poor purchasing decisions in my vaping infancy about two years ago. Back then, I purchased several different pieces of hardware without really enjoying it and I hope my reviews can guide people into spending their hard-earned money more wisely than I did! \***Keep in mind that some items I receive may be pre-release and not in retail packaging.* Quality may be less than the finished product and what is in the package may differ from the retail package as well.
