The Smoant Karat Pod system is visually stunning. Its jewel-like teardrop appearance makes it a standout amongst other pods on the market. The Karat is a discrete MTL pod with a 2mL capacity. It’s a minimalist design, draw-activated device free of buttons or display screens. The real appeal of the pod is the quartz coils designed for flavor and rapid heating. Delving into the pros, the Karat gives a terrific performance. It stands up there with some of the bigger pods on the market. It’s extremely well built, durable, which is key for a portable. Along with that, it gives a satisfying MTL performance. The mouthpiece is nice, it gives a tight MTL draw, a nice medium to warm MTL vape. The pod works best with nic salts. The quartz coil set this pod apart from the others on the market. You can tell they used a little bit lower coil than a lot of pod systems out there. The pod works best with a 50/50 ratio liquid, anything lower doesn't satisfy the device requirements. The Karat performs best with high nicotine concentration liquid to get a good performance. The 1.3ohm coil has a regulated voltage, you get a very nice medium to warm tight MTL vape with this from the beginning. The Karat innovatively uses a quartz coil pod system for intense heating. The flavor on the Karat pod is prominent, it is crisp and clean. One reviewer claimed that the flavor was a bit muted but that’s according to everyone's preference. The Karat gives decent vapor production, it vapes like a tank. On to the cons, the battery life is super low a 370mAh battery won’t get you anything. Also, it would have been nice if the pods were a little less tinted to see e-liquid levels. The tank takes some breaking in to get the max flavor, that’s annoying. The Karat only comes with one pod in the device. It should come with at least two.

Final Thoughts

Smoant’s Karat pod is worth the money. For a pod of its size it gives an excellent performance. Aside from the poor 380mAh battery, I had no real qualms about it’s performance. The quartz coil and tank is what makes this a stand out AIO from the hundreds that are on the market. I’d recommend it.
