The Suorin Air Mod is unmistakably a Suorin device, as it comes in a flat ‘credit card’ style design format.
The Air Mod features a 1500mAh internal battery with adjustable wattage and a power output range of 5-40W.
The pod is refillable with a 3ml juice capacity and uses replaceable mesh coils. It comes with two coils in the kit, a 0.6Ω (25-30W) and a 0.8Ω (15-18W).
The Air Mod also features a 0.96” TFT display and adjustable airflow.
The Sourin Air Mod is available in 9 color options: Clear Silver, Clear Blue, Clear Green, Clear Red, Gunmetal, Black, Sunglow Red, and Rainbow.

Design & Style
The Suorin Air mod follows many Suorin devices in design and styling. They opted for that unique flat credit-card design format with a few modern tweaks.
The device has an almost two-tone style to it. One side is primarily Zinc Alloy, where the battery section of the device is housed. Then the other side is a translucent plastic.
The translucent plastic allows you to see the chipset parts, which look pretty cool. However, the amount of transparency does depend on the color of the device you choose.
It’s also worth noting that the color of the device you choose will determine how much of a fingerprint magnet the metal section is. We have the ‘Sunglow Red’ device for review, which wouldn’t be my first choice. It does show smudges, which are more apparent if you are a bit messy with your juice.
However, I have seen the Gunmetal and Black variants, which look a little sleeker, and I believe have a less glossy finish. So they would be the best choice if you like a clean-looking mod.
The Air Mod is not the smallest of pod systems, measuring 99.6mm x 42.6mm x 14.1mm. However, it does come with a 1500mAh internal battery and a 3ml capacity pod, which is larger than most pod systems.
The Air Mod also comes with a 0.96” TFT display and adjustable wattage, so there’s a lot packed into the device. The screen is positioned on the front bottom left of the device and blends seamlessly into the whole design. It’s barely noticeable that the mod has a screen until you power the device on.
The screen is simple in terms of information displayed, showing the battery status, wattage, coil resistance, and puff count. Despite its simple screen, it has a good layout and matches the device well.
You will find the fire button and +/- buttons on the left-hand side adjacent to the screen. The buttons are clicky and responsive. I do find the fire button a little out of the way to use for actually firing the device. However, that’s not a big issue as the Suorin Air Mod also has auto-draw that works well.
Beneath the screen and on the device’s base is a USB-Type C port for charging. It’s not what I would classify as fast charging, as it’s only a 1A charge rate, which means charging the 1500mAh battery takes about 2 hours from dead.
Sourin has also taken a different route with the format and design of the removable pod. The pod forms the top left corner of the device and is held in place by very secure magnets. It fits seamlessly to the device with not even the slightest sign of wiggle when in place.
There is no real mouthpiece on the pod; like previous Suorin air devices, the top corner is where it’s positioned. We will cover it more in detail later, along with the replaceable coils for the device.
The Suorin Air Mod also has an airflow control slider. This is positioned beneath the pod and slides up and down to allow or restrict airflow coming in beneath the coil. It’s not the most granular of airflow controls and does move a little too freely for my liking. Again I’ll cover my full experience with it in the performance section.
Overall the Air Mod has a very nice and unique design. It also has good build quality, which adds to the premium look and feel of the device. While the design format may not suit everyone’s taste, I’ve come to enjoy it, and it does turn a few heads when using it out and about.
The Suorin Air Mod comes with an inbuilt 1500mAh battery and is powered by Sourin’s proprietary chipset.
It features adjustable wattage with an output range of 5-40W. IT also has smart wattage detection and limits the adjustable wattage based on the resistance of the coil inserted.
The 0.96” TFT screen displays battery status, wattage, puff count, coil resistance, and puff time.
The Suorin Air Mod comes with all the standard safety protections and has a USB Type C port for charging. The charge rate is 1A, and it takes about 120 minutes to recharge completely. It also features pass-through vaping, so it can still be used while charging.
The Suorin Air Mod is easy to operate, with the following controls:
- 5 clicks = on/off
- Click + or – button = to adjust wattage in 1W increments
- Simultaneous press +/- = locks the adjustment buttons, but it can still be fired.
- Press + and Fire button = Clear puff counter.
The Suorin Air Mod comes with one refillable pod, which has a 3ml juice capacity.
The pod connects to the device via strong magnets, and it is translucent, making it easy to see your juice level.
The fill port for the pod is on the backside, so it is neatly out of place, keeping the device looking clean. However, it does require the pod to be removed to be re-filled.
The rubber plug for the fill port is nice and large, easy to remove and replace. The fill port whole is also large, and as it sits at the top of the pod, you don’t get any air bubbles while filling.
The pod is compatible with the Suorin Air Mod Coil Series. They are mesh coils, and there are two included in the kit:
- 0.6Ω (rated 25-30W)
- 0.8Ω (rated 15-18W)
The coils are push-fit, and they have two flat edges, so you know you are placing them in correctly.
The Suorin Air mod delivers good performance and flavor from both coils.
The 0.6Ω mesh coil works best in the upper wattages to deliver a warm, flavorful vape. With the airflow completely open, it is a slightly restricted direct-lung vape. You can make it a very restricted DL vape by shutting the airflow down, but I think the flavor and draw are best when it’s more open.
The 0.8Ω mesh coil is my preferred of the two. It delivers an open to medium MTL draw and works well within the wattage ranges (15-18W). It delivers very good flavor and a nice smooth draw.
You won’t really be able to achieve a tight MTL draw with the Suorin Air Mod. It is still quite a loose MTL draw even with the airflow completely shut off.
The airflow slider is also not the greatest. It only requires a little bit of movement to go from top to bottom and doesn’t make the greatest of adjustments. It also moves about a little too freely, so placing the device in your pocket may well adjust the airflow setting.
That being said, the Air Mod can deliver either a loose MTL or a restricted DTL draw, and it does well at both.
The mouthpiece of the Air Mod also takes some getting used to, like with all Suroin Air Mods. You are essentially inhaling on the top corner of the pod/device. However, you had to hold the mod at an angle with previous devices to get the best draw.
The Air Mod allows you to hold the device almost straight in your mouth, which is a lot better. This may be down to the ‘unique Z-shape blowhole design’ that Suorin has used in the pod.
Another thing to note is that the coils are not great with thin liquid. On my first attempt with the 0.8Ω coil, I only had a 50/50 (12mg) juice, and I noticed a very slight amount of liquid beneath the coil when the pod was removed. As soon as I switched to a 70VG juice, everything was fine.
The battery life of the Air Mod is great if you are using the 0.8Ω MTL coil. It will easily see you through a day of vaping. However, as you’d expect, the 0.6Ω does drain the battery faster, and you will need to recharge to make it through the day.
Sadly, the recharge speed is a little lacking as the Air Mod takes around 2 hours to recharge completely. I would like to have seen 2A charging on a device like this that contains a 1500mAh battery.
- Good build quality
- Sleek & Unique design
- 1500mAh battery
- Easy to use
- 3ml juice capacity
- Decent screen (and info)
- Adjustable wattage
- Adjustable airflow
- MTL and DTL vaping
- Good draw Activation
- Excellent flavor from both coils
- USB-C charging
- Decent battery life (MTL)
- Slow charge time (2hrs)
- Airflow adjustment is not the greatest
- You may get some leaking with thin liquids
- Not a tight MTL draw (subjective)
The Suorin Air Mod won’t be for everyone when it comes to its design format.
However, those who do like the sleek card-like design will get a device with all the features you need that delivers an excellent restricted DTL and loose MTL vape.
Both of the mesh coils deliver great flavor, and the 3ml juice capacity and 1500mAh battery make it a strong MTL setup.
If you are bored of traditional pod mods, the Suorin Air Mod is definitely worth a look. Its design and performance have certainly won me over.
