SMOK Rolo Badge pod vape

When SMOK decides to make a pod system, you can be sure it's going to be amazing. The SMOK Rolo Badge pod vape not only looks amazing but also performs like a champ. It's made from high quality metal and the finish on it is absolutely beautiful. Intended for satisfying mouth to lung draws this device is great for trying out nic salts.

What's in the Rolo Badge box

The SMOK Rolo Badge pod vaporizer comes packed in a nice black cardboard box. Inside you will find the battery, two pods, a micro-USB cable, injection bottle and the user manual. This device is available in five different plated colors including Rainbow and Prism Gold. According to SMOK's website they will also release a rubberized series in the near future as well as new color options.

Rolo Badge: Design and features

The SMOK Rolo Badge pod system does look a lot like an upside down version of the Suorin Drop starter kit. It measures 73.5mm x 50mm x 12mm and weighs around 70 grams. Feels great in the hand, but due to its glossy finish it can turn into a real fingerprint magnet.

Has a nice diamond shape SMOK logo on the front and an LED notification light towards the base. Micro-USB charge slot is on the side and battery capacity is 250mAh. To be honest we did expect it to be bigger, but you do get decent battery life overall. Output power is between 10W – 16W and pairs perfectly with coil resistance.

The Rolo Badge pod vape has a cut-off period of 8 seconds. Additionally it also comes with short circuit protection and low voltage protection. The LED will start blinking when it's time to recharge and the whole process takes less than 30 minutes.

The Rolo Badge pods

One of the best things about this tiny vaporizer is the fact that it comes with two pods. Each of these has a capacity of 2.0ml and two rubber gaskets you need to take out when refilling. You can use the provided needle top bottle; however we didn't have any problems filling up the pods even with standard droppers or chubby gorilla recipients.

The pods are magnetic and they easily snap into place. They are mostly intended for mouth to lung draws but you can ultimately direct lung them too. Vapor production and flavor are pretty good and the pods last for more than 4 – 5 refills.

Performance and how does it compare to the Suorin Drop

In terms of performance the SMOK Rolo Badge pod vape is a really good alternative. It delivers great vapor and flavor and comes with two pods out of the box. It also has an unbeatable price tag. However we do seem to prefer the Suorin Drop more due to the shape of its mouthpiece, rubberized finish and smoother draw. This doesn't mean we don't like the SMOK though; it's probably just a matter of personal preference.

My name is Sam and I’m an avid blogger and social media specialist. My two great passions are motorcycles and vaping. I love writing about my experiences and I’m usually the one testing all mods and vaporizers we receive. You will always find me fiddling with tank atomizers, building my own coils or steeping various e-liquid recipes.

    Ive Had both, The Sourin is way more finicky and is super fragile. If you drop it one time it'll permanently depress one of the pins effectively making it a button style vape where you have to physically push the pod into the battery to get it to fire. The Badge is designed much better. The flavor isnt even comparable. The Drop has almost no flavor compared to the badge. Who cares if its a "fingerprint magnet". Fucking wash your hands you filthy animals.
