As seen in the recent year, pod systems have become incredibly popular for many reasons. They’re extremely portable, easy to use and great for nicotine salt e-liquids. Veek, a relatively new company to the vape scene has released their own, offering a few features to differentiate itself in the sea of pod based vape devices. See how this device compares to the rest in our Veek Airo Pod System Review!
Veek Airo Kit Features
Veek Airo Kit First Impressions
The Veek Airo Pod comes in a pretty standard box, but the presentation is good. On the front of the packaging, you’ll see what the actual device looks like, and some of the features. On the back is where you’ll find a short description of the kit, specifications and what’s inside. Included in the box, you do receive the Veek Airo, a USB charging cable, user manual and two pods.
I will say right away, it’s a huge pro that this kit does come with two pods rather than one. A lot of pod systems being released today only come with one, which isn’t good, especially if you’re unlucky and get a faulty pod, which is something that can happen. Also, it lets you use the pod for much more time before needing to purchase extras.
Once you slide open the box, you’ll immediately see the Pod System with a pod pre-installed and an accessory box which includes the additional pod and charging cable. Like mentioned earlier, the presentation is really good and everything is packaged well, so there’s no worries when it’s in transit. My first impression of the Veek Airo Pod System is that it is sleek and looks much more expensive than what it costs, which is something I think they were going for.
On the body of the pod system, there’s a leather sticker, which isn’t real, but does feel good in your hand. It is primarily constructed of zinc alloy, so it is durable and lightweight. Something worth mentioning is that there’s very minimal branding, on the top you’ll see in small font "Airo" and "Veek" imprinted onto the leather sticker. I do like that and prefer devices this way rather than over branding.
Overall, my first impressions of the Veek Airo Pod were great. It looks good and feels even better in the hand. The build quality is top notch as well, which is always a good thing!
Veek Airo Pod System Day to Day Usage
The Airo is very lightweight and with its design it was easy to carry with me during the day in my pocket. You can easily store this in your bag or purse as well. It is rounded with no sharp edges to be found, and I did find it comfortable to use day to day. The stickers located on the back and front of the device do provide a nice grip and although some vapers may not like these stickers, I think they look good on the Airo. This is subjective of course.
The charging port is located on the side, but you cannot stand it up due to its rounded shape. It’s not a big deal for me, but something worth mentioning. On the bottom, you’ll see the LED light, and it is quite bright especially while charging. It does light up when taking a vape as well, and it’s there to serve as a battery life indicator.
Right above the charging port, you will see a small hole, which is where the airflow is coming in from. I never really ran into the issue of covering it with my fingers while vaping, but you can cover it if you want a slightly more tighter draw.
It does feature an internal 360mAh battery and depending how much you vape will determine how long the battery actual lasts. I will say that with the 1A charging capability, it does charge quite fast when the battery is fully depleted. To fully charge it, it’s definitely under 1 hour at 1A. If I were only vaping with this device during the day, then I would have to charge it once. However, if I was vaping it on and off throughout the day, I could easily get three days worth of battery life.
The refillable pods have an e-liquid capacity of 2ml, which is standard I would say when it comes to pod systems. Some have less and some have just a bit more. I think 2ml is fine since you won’t be blowing through e-liquid rapidly. A full pod easily lasts me throughout the entire day.
Also, when installing the pod into the device, it only goes in one way and once it is in correctly, you will see the LED light illuminate letting you know the pod has been attached. The pod does feature a magnetic connection, but it does stay in place firmly. It does take an effort to pull the pod out of the device, which is definitely a good thing.
Filling the pods is an easy task as well. There is a small plug on the side of the pod, simply take it out and fill with your preferred e-juice. You can fill it with pretty much any bottle, but don’t fill too fast as there isn’t another fill hole where air can escape. Something else worth mentioning is that the plug does come out quite easily and detattach completely, so be careful not to lose it. I do wish it stayed attached to the pod while filling. The last thing to mention with the pods is that I never had it leak, not once, which is a pro for sure.
The Veek Airo does feature a draw activated firing design, so there’s no buttons to press. I know some vapers may not like this feature and prefer a button, but I think it’s perfect for the beginner. I will say I never had any autofiring occur, which some pods suffer from with this type of design.
Overall, I didn’t run into any issues whatsoever in my day to day testing with this pod system. It worked flawlessly.
Veek Airo Pod System Performance
When it comes to any review, the major question is how does it perform? I will cover a few things before getting into my thoughts on the actual performance.
Firstly, I will say that the draw is not very tight, it’s definitely a loose mouth to lung, which is a good or bad thing depending on your preference. Although I do prefer a slightly tighter mouth to lung vape, I did enjoy the draw on the Airo. At first, I will say I wasn’t a fan of the draw and it was too loose for me. However, after I stuck with it for a few hours, I ended up enjoying it quite a bit. I wouldn’t recommend this for direct lung vaping though as most pod systems are meant to MTL.
Also, it does feature auto temperature control, and I will say that the vape experience is very consistent. It does provide a slightly warm vape experience, which is something I do enjoy whether vaping direct lung or mouth to lung.
Something else the Airo features is an innovative bottom air-driven system and is claimed to provide good flavor and I will say the flavor on these pods are great. The flavor is well above average and better than a lot of pods I’ve personally used. The pods do have a slight break in period though, I would say about 1ml before getting full on flavor.
With all that being said, the Veek Airo Kit has excellent performance. The flavor is top notch, especially for a pod system. The warmth from each vape is perfect and I get a satisfying throat hit with a nicotine salt based e-liquid.
Veek Airo Pros & Cons
Veek Airo Pod Kit Review Conclusion
In conclusion, the Veek Airo Pod System is a solid performer with very little to complain about. It does exactly what its supposed to do with zero issues. Not to mention, the build quality is fantastic and comfortable to use all day.
The only real complaint I had personally was the fill plug. It is a bit on the flimsy side once it’s taken out and I do wish it actually stayed attached to the pod rather than coming out completely. However, it does stay in place securely, which is a good thing. The only other complaint which is subjective is the loose draw. It’s either something you like or don’t. Like mentioned previously, at first I wasn’t a fan, but I grew to like it pretty quickly.
All in all, I would recommend the Veek Airo Kit to both the beginner and advanced vaper. It’s easy enough for the beginner and convenient for the expert. The performance is stellar thanks to its great flavor and consistent vape experience.
