Augvape Narada Pod Kit is their latest release aiming to bring something new to the Pod/AIO market.
The Narada sports a look similar to other AIO devices currently on the market and does have an air of Billet Box about it. Thankfully there’s still a signature Druga look to the kit with its rounded edges similar to that of the Druga Foxy.
The Druga Narada Kit comprises of two main components, the battery, and the pod.
The battery has an in-built 1100mAh capacity, a straightforward large fire button and a USB-C port for charging. It’s capable of 2.4A fast charging and can charge fully in 25 minutes.
Augvape also includes a nifty lanyard that doubles as a USB-C cable, to make it easier to charge on the move.
Most of the magic for this kit takes place with the pod itself.
It has a 4.3ml capacity and takes replaceable coils, and there are two included in the kit:
- 0.5ohm coil – SS316 regular coil
- 0.6ohm coil – Kanthal mesh coil
There’s also a rebuildable head (RBA) coil head, much like that of the Smoant Pasito that can be purchased separately.
The pod can be placed into the device by removing one of the Resin side panels, and it features a fill port (or flap) on the side of the pod to top up.
There are no external airflow controls. Instead, the Narada pod utilizes different rubber inserts to plug or block the airflow holes on the top of the pod. There are 5 airflow holes in total, so that should lead to plenty of airflow configurations, even if you have to remove the pod each time to adjust it.
The Augvape Narada is currently available in 3 colors; Black PC, Black Carbon Fibre and Red Leather.
There are a few things to really like about the Augvape Narada Kit, and a few we’ll reserve judgment on until we test the device.
Firstly, it’s great to see another company introducing an RBA coil head for their AIO pod kit. Yes, it may be small and fiddly to build on, but it looks like they may have done a better job on the design of the posts than Smoant’s Pasito.
Also utilizing a USB-C port with fast charging is a major plus, especially if you can recharge from flat in 25 minutes.
On the negative side, it’s not so apparent at the moment how you gauge your battery life with no clear indicators on view.
Also, the lack of power adjustment could be a deal-breaker, especially when you have given users the ability to insert different ohm coils in with the RBA.
As for the airflow inserts, while it helps to keep the look of the device clean, and the may potentially work really well and give a good range of airflow, I’d much prefer an integrated airflow adjustment. Losing one of the rubber plugs might become a pain.
The real test is going to be just how good the Narada performs and in particular the coils. We’ll keep you updated when we get one in for review.
