Spod by Sikary, the most discussed pod mod of the moment …
Like it or not, the pod mods have revolutionized the way of understanding the vape of vaper.
The most experienced vaper do not always look favorably on these systems, which we remember are very compact and easy to use personal vaporizers, able to make the transition from analogical to electronic cigarettes absolutely simple and relatively untraumatic. Those who now use advanced systems with exceptional level aromatic restitutions, find it difficult to return to something less powerful. The less experienced vapers, but also those looking for ease of immediate use without the commitment that a regenerable system has led to a real boom in these vaporizers and every day we are witnessing some news. Every manufacturer wants to have its say and we are here for this: to give voice to companies. We do this to allow anyone to better orient themselves in this market that is becoming truly boundless.
The flourishing market of the “Rising Sun” is always in turmoil, only the best manage to emerge and reach us and this is the case of Sikary Vapor, a Chinese company, which through its new pod mod, Spod, has given a huge shock to this market. The reason is soon said they have succeeded in tracing the shape and design of the famous “tobacco heater” to turn it into an electronic cigarette.
Ready more than ever to tell you about it as usual, from the contents of the packaging of the product received.

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
This is certainly the most important section, the reference to the tobacco heater that we all know is very strong. The Spod is divided into two parts, a power bank with rounded corners and finishes for all colors in black. The build quality is good and no major imperfections are noticed. Beautiful rubber-like coating, maybe a little too much plastic but the feeling of solidity that is transmitted to us is good. The only flaw is the tooth that blocks the upper part that allows us to extract the pod, it seems slightly weak. The power is located on the front of the key for opening the top cap, the LEDs that indicate the percentage of charge, the power button and the charging port all aligned one above the other. The second component is the actual pod mod, it is simply a pen-shaped battery which in the upper part will house the tank with the resistance. It too is well built, slightly slippery as it is not covered, but it is well finished and without large smears. There are no buttons because the shot is automatic. Accurate and accurate is also the housing of the pod on the battery, free of both aesthetic and functional defects. The shapes and the invoice are certainly one of the strong points of this pod mod that, recalling an object that almost everyone knows by now, is captivating and successful.
One of the most sought-after features in the mod pods is definitely the bulk. Size and weight must be at the highest level of engineering for the success of the project and here on this Spod we are really on excellent levels, the 200mha battery is really compact we find a height of about 98 mm in height for a width of about 16 mm and a total weight of 19 grams, we are really in front of a pod with reduced dimensions and it is precisely for this reason that it lends itself well to a truly atypical gesture.
I want to dedicate a few lines to this aspect as we believe it represents one of the points in favor that differentiate this pod from the others. Gesture is one of the aspects for those who try to stop with the analogues that at first glance are missing and this is where the dimensions of this pod help us, given its lightness, we will be able to keep it between two fingers having the sensation of a cigar and also slightly squeezing it between teeth and lips we will be able with a bit of experience to vape without using our hands just like a real cigarette. This is due not only to the dimensions but to the really automatic and well calibrated automatic shooting.
The power bank is really convenient just insert the pen-shaped battery inside it which will start charging, the battery inside is 2200 mha and this will allow a complete recharge for about 10 times. The dimensions here too are really well studied, we are facing a height of 109mm for a width of 60mm with a thickness of 27mm. Here the operation of the device is enclosed, as as mentioned the pod mod is automatic so it will be enough to pull to activate the resistance inside. On the power bank we find the power button that with the classic 5 clicks turns on and once the pod mod is inserted it will start charging. The LEDs show with a click the charge of the power bank and with 3 the battery charge inside it. All simple and clear.
COILING, WICKING AND FILLING
As mentioned above, the Spod has a pod with a capacity of 0.8ml that can be recharged through a system that unfortunately turns out to be one of the Achilles heels of this product. The approach is certainly not the easiest because the system they thought is slightly cumbersome but once taken the hand will still be simple. The pod is recharged through two side slits located under the drip tip which is inserted in the upper part and only by removing the white silicon part will we be able to access the refill holes. Unfortunately we do not find points of contact to extract it with the fingers and we will therefore have to use the bocetta with the needle that is supplied to us to help us in this operation once made lever with the needle and slightly lifted the cap we will succeed in filling our liquid pod.
The pod has a 2.00 ohm resistance, unfortunately the cotton does not have a very high absorbent quality which requires the need for minor adjustments when it is first initialized. First we will have to be careful not to fill the pod to the brim with liquid in order to create the cork effect that does not allow the liquid to wet the cotton well, we will have to be careful to remove the air bubbles will suffice of the taps and we’ll see the air go up. Furthermore, the first time we recommend to leave the pod stand still for at least 10 minutes so that everything comes up to speed and from here on you will not have any problem. Certainly not easy at the beginning but with a little patience everything will be simpler.
PERFORMANCES AND FLAVOUR
The Spod is an automatic mod pod and therefore it is not necessary to press the activation button to vapourize and vaporize the liquid in the cartridge. The throw of this device is very closed, it really looks like an almost strangled shot of the classic cigarette, this certainly increases the score of this product. This is a cheek shot that we might call a little airy and quite contrasted. The hit is average, but not the most pushed, in fact the device has been designed and studied mainly for users who are about to or have just abandoned the traditional cigarette, and therefore approaching an e-cig for the first time , they should use liquids with medium-high nicotine levels.
From an aromatic point of view, Spod’s performance is average with those we could try. In our opinion there are pods on the market that are more performing and better from this point of view, but it is clear that the Chinese company with this device has focused more on the practicality of use on the gestures and on a really attractive and in line with the moment, which in any case are more than respectable.
No battery problem thanks to the power bank we will never stay on foot. Hard not to end the day.
The jewel in the crown of this device is represented by the gestures that derive from the well-studied shape, which allows those who approach this world to maintain that gesture that recalls the gesture of the cigarette, without having to press buttons and worry about carrying batteries reserve all with a decent yield in aromatic terms.
The Spod is an embryonic project, which has probably been able to exploit the notoriety of the product from which it takes inspiration. The weak points surely concern the atomizer, which is bound to a system perhaps too dated for the historical moment, the machinity of the refill is not an aspect to be underestimated but surely you soon get used to it. The good first initialization is also crucial, which will determine the good duration of the pod. We feel we can recommend it to everyone, from the most to the less experienced, with a minimum of commitment, great satisfaction can be obtained by virtue, as mentioned in a form that allows a unique gesturality. To you the choice!
