How Long Will It Take to Charge My SMOK Nord C?

Can I Use a Different Charger to Charge My SMOK Nord C?

We strongly recommend only using the supplied Type-C charging cable to charge your SMOK Nord C. Using other cables may result in slower charging times or potential damage to the device.

The 1800mAh battery of the SMOK Nord C, combined with its adjustable wattage, makes it easy to get a full day of vaping from this device.

What Power Settings Should I Use for Different Coils?

The SMOK Nord C allows for adjustable wattage between 5W and 50W to help you dial in your vaping experience. We recommend the following power settings depending on the coil you’re using in the device:

  • 12W to 25W when using the supplied 0.6ohm coil (best for MTL)
  • 25W to 50W when using the supplied 0.16ohm coil (best for RDL vaping)
  • How Does the LED Indicator on the Nord C Work?

    The SMOK Nord C features a 0.69" OLED screen that displays essential information, including:

    • Remaining battery life
    • Wattage settings
    • Safety warnings
    • Remaining time to full charge (when connected to power)

    How Long Will My Coils & Pods Last?

    The longevity of your coils and pods will depend on your usage and the type of e-liquid you use. However, many users report being able to use the coils in their Nord C for 7-10 days of moderate usage, while 3-5 days seems more common with heavy use. Regular maintenance and proper priming of the coils can help extend their lifespan.

    What E-Liquid Should I Use with My Nord C?

    The SMOK Nord C is compatible with a variety of e-liquids. The choice of e-liquid will depend on the coil you are using:

    • Use e-liquid with a higher VG concentration when the 0.16ohm coil is installed.
    • Use e-liquid with a 50/50 VG/PG concentration when the 0.6ohm coil is installed.

    Why Does My Nord C Leak?

    Regular maintenance and proper coil installation are essential for preventing leaks. The following can all make a leak from your device more likely:

    • Overfilling the pod, which can cause e-liquid to escape through the seams in the mouthpiece.
    • Drawing too hard, which can cause e-liquid to enter the mouthpiece before it has had a chance to vapourize properly.
    • Using overly sugary e-liquids, which can contaminate the taste of your device with coil gunk and also prevent it from operating properly.

    How Should I Prime the Coil in My Nord C?

    To prime the coil, simply apply a few drops of e-liquid directly onto the cotton wick in the coil, fill the pod, and let it sit for a few minutes before vaping.

    What If My SMOK Nord C Coils Burn Out Too Fast?

    Ensure you are priming the coils properly and using the correct e-liquid for your coil type. Avoid chain vaping and give the device time to cool down between puffs to prevent the coils from burning out prematurely.
