First Impression out of the Box
DeucesJack: Alright everyone, welcome back to vapinginsider.com. I got another pod system for you today. Today I have the Kilo 1K pod system. It’s a nice one, man.
We’re going to cut down low. We’re going to check it out but look at it so far. Nice little pod system. Smooth flavors, no throat hit. Really really smooth Nic Salt they’re using in this thing. Let’s cut down low. Let me show it to you. I’ll show you the pod. I’ll show you the packaging. I’ll show you everything. And then we’ll go back on top. We’re going to talk about it a little bit. Con, pros, we’re out of here as usual. See you down low.
What’s in the Box
- 1x – Kilo 1K Pod System (flavor pods sold separately)
- 1x – Micro USB charger
Alright everyone, welcome to the down low potion of this video. Today we have the Kilo pod system. The 1K by Kilo eliquids. This is the packaging. A little bit of Kilo branding over here. Some more Kilo branding, even more and we’re at the back of the box.
This pod system has dual airflow. It is draw activated. Very easy to use. Nice form factor. It has a no leak, no spill type of pod system. Battery is rechargeable with a micro USB port. The only bad thing about this system, really, is it only comes with the battery. It only comes with the pod system.
Let me open it up and show it to you. Here we go. There is your user manual. Pretty simple, we’ll file that to the side. Here is your USB cable that you get with it. Shorty style, flat USB cable. File that to the side.
From Top to Bottom
And here is the battery. It has a kind of- you have 3 LEDs over here. A little bit of branding, micro USB on the bottom. Kind of like a rectangular shape with the sides kind of cornered off. Down there, you have some gold plated contacts. I like this V here because when you put the pod in, you can actually see your e juice level.
Finish is kind of like a rubbery type of finish but as you can see here, I got a couple of little chips right here on the edges here too. It hasn’t exactly been holding up the greatest. A little surprised with that. I would have like to have seen it hold up a little better.
Here are the pods that you get. This is the Dewberry which is basically Honeydew Raspberry Blueberry and Strawberry, I guess. Not a bad capacity. Gold plated contacts on the bottom. 1.8 ohm coil, 1.5 milliliter capacity. I also want to show you the packaging for it. They only gave me one flavor. I did a video with them in Brooklyn at the Business to Business and they were a little cheap with me as far as the flavors go. 4.5% nicotine.
Here’s a look at the box of the flavors. They have 6 different flavors. We’ll go over them once we go back on top. You can see, they’re color coded. They come nicely wrapped. You push them out like so. You got a little rubber tip right here, indicating that it’s Dewberry.
This is the bottom over here. So far, I haven’t had any leaking like with other pod systems when they come packaged you normally get a little bit of leaking on the bottom. I haven’t had that issue with them so far. I want to show you what it looks like when it’s all together. See how you can clearly see your e liquid capacity in that little diamond there? Pod system goes in either way. No way is either right or wrong. This is a close pod system. You’ll notice when I take it out and I put it in, you see the LEDs go right there.
Let’s cut back on top. Let’s talk about it a little bit. We’ll do cons, pros and then we’re out of here. See back on top.
Alright everyone, we’re back on top with the 1K from Kilo and Kilo e liquid. Let’s talk about this thing a little bit. It’s a nice looking pod system. I like the shape. I wish the finish was a little better. You saw it down low, I’m starting to get some chips and scratches on it. That does come with a full disclosure because you guys know I’m real rough on my things. If I ding it up a little bit, you kind of have to take that with a grain of salt because of the way I am with my mods.
Price point is nice. $20, the only thing is, it doesn’t come with any pod. So you got to spend another $20 on a 4 pack of pods. So your initial investment for this thing is going to be $40 which is kind of inline with like all those jewels and bow typed of systems.
It’s not terrible. It does have a micro USB port charging on the bottom. That’s always a pro. I’m going to give them an it for that because I hate those proprietary charging systems.
It comes in 6 flavors. I got the Dewberry. They didn’t give me the other flavors to try. I did try them at the show. All except for the nutty flavor because I’m not really into the nutty style vapes. That’s not my jam. The flavors available are Dewberry, Menthol Tobacco, Strawberry, Lemon Berry, Smooth Tobacco and Nutty. I do remember when they asked me which flavor I wanted, I had a tough choice choosing between the Dewberry, the Lemon Berry and the Smooth Tobacco. The Smooth Tobacco had a real nice creamy flavor to it if I recall it correctly. Again, I apologize. They only offered me one pack of flavors so I really can’t comment in detail on the flavors because that Brooklyn show where I received this was over a month ago. But from what I remember, the Smooth Tobacco was really nice. I wish they would have given me the other flavors do I could have showed them to you and give you a more accurate flavor profile.
Draw activated, 1.8 ohm coils, 1.5ml capacity, they do use Nic Salts and it’s 4.5% nicotine in all their pods.
Let’s get into the official cons and pros.
First con is going to be, no pods in the kit. I think that’s a big mistake.
And that’s going to be the other con. The way they packaged it. I think they should have packaged like a sampler pack of 3 flavors in there. Charge a little more. Charge $35 but throw 3 flavors in there so people can check them out. To buy the battery for $20 and then they have to go pay another $20 for 4 flavors, you’re going to go 4 of the same flavor in 1 pack so you’re not sure if you’re really going to like that flavor. I would have like to have seen them more for some time of sampler pack or some type of beginner quit smoking type of kit where there’s different flavors packaged in box. That’s going to be a con, the way they packaged it.
The other con is going to be the finish. The finish is just not holding up. I wish it was better because I really do like the slimness and the form factor and the way they bevelled out the edges but the finish is not holding up. I have other pod systems that have better finishes. That’s for sure.
But that’s it for the cons. Nothing that really affects the vape-ability of this pod system. Let’s get into the pros.
First pro is going to be 1.5ml capacity. We’ll give them a pro for that.
I’ll give them a pro for the looks. It’s a good looking pod system. Love that diamond shape window right there where you can see your e liquid. That’s a pro.
Let’s give them a pro for the slim pocketability of it. You can put this easily in a shirt pocket. You can put it in a front jeans pocket, a back jeans pocket, jacket pocket. This thing is nice, slim and portable. We already talk about the easy to see liquid.
I’m going to give them a pro on the flavors. The flavors that I do recollect were all very good. Like I said, I wish I could have given you a more accurate flavor profiles on the 6 flavors but it’s just not in the cards. But the ones I do remember from the show were all very good and very smooth.
That’s about it. It’s a pod system. There’s really not much else to say about it. It’s easy to use. We’ll give them a pro for that but after that, there’s really not much more to go on.
