SnowWolf Wocket AIO Review
After their recent foray into rebuildable pod systems, it seems that SnowWolf is back in the game, now with an innovative-looking all-in-one system. Mimicking the ever-popular Orion body style, the Wocket incorporates some of the most cutting-edge features found in pods and AIOs out there and seemingly brought them all together in one new system. With an OLED screen, adjustable wattage, adjustable airflow, and a downright beautiful chassis, will the Wocket become the new standard for a style of AIO once synonymous with the Orion? On the other hand, too many of us remember SnowWolf’s less-than-stellar effort with the Exilis – will the Wocket meet a similar fate?

To put this in the simplest possible terms: If you like the way this thing looks and you like the list of features it’s got, buy it. It’s really that simple, but, as always, we’ll put in our due diligence and give you the full breakdown you’re all here for. After all, it’s not an entirely perfect system and there’s always the chance that one of these cons will be enough to put you off the Wocket altogether.
So, first up, the draw. Where my MTL heads at? Gather round, because this thing might not be what you’re looking for. I know by now you guys have surely gotten tired of hearing that, but it’s true once again. The Wocket has a great adjustable airflow system, but it can be a little tricky getting it tight enough for that “true MTL” we hear so much about. It’s always going to be a little airy if you’re looking for that cigarette draw tightness. On the other hand, check out the list of pros below when I discuss the drip tips. There’s some hope yet!
Other issues include changing the airflow. A lot of AIOs have done it better, with side or top adjust systems, but the Wocket requires you to take out the entire pod and get under the coil to adjust airflow. This can be a little annoying, especially as you experiment with different wattages and juices.
You also get a bit of drop off in performance at lower battery life, even though the device is pretty well-regulated. Once that battery hits 25% or so, it’s probably best to start looking for a charger.
Finally, the locking feature is a little odd. You have the option to lock the buttons but doing so locks both the firing button and wattage adjustment buttons. In most systems, locking simply disables the adjustment buttons, as locking all the buttons is tantamount to just turning the whole thing off. Additionally, it’s pretty easy to mistakenly hit the adjustment button while vaping, so it’d be really nice to disable it.
Aside from these issues, you’ve got a lot to recommend this thing. Let’s talk about drip tips first though, for my MTL lovers out there. One of the reasons you can’t get a true, tight MTL draw is the width of the drip tip’s bore. Fortunately, the Wocket is compatible with your other drip tips. If you have a narrow-bore MTL drip tip you prefer, swap it out, tighten down the airflow, set the wattage in the 10-12 range, and you’ll find you have a pretty damn good MTL system on your hands.
It’s also built incredibly well. Despite one of the shorter and most slender chasses in this category, the Wocket is nice and heavy – but not in a way which detracts from its portability. If you choose a resin option, you’re also getting that authentic resin with its distinct texture. No matter which finish you get, though, it’s hard to argue that this isn’t a simply beautiful AIO system. One reviewer also took the trouble of performing some drop tests, in which the pod didn’t even come loose. Pretty good for a little guy.
The battery life is also pretty impressive. Listed at 1150mAh, the battery actually comes in at closer to 1250mAh, which is really good. There are much larger systems with much worse battery life. If you’re vaping this thing at 25W, the battery still won’t last you quite all day, but it’ll still outperform its peers in that power range.
The flavor on this system is simply fantastic, as well, drawing favorable comparisons to class leaders like the Caliburn and Trinity Alpha, although this flavor is best achieved with thinner e-liquids in the 50/50 or 60/40 categories. The clouds are pretty decent for a little thing too, with an especially dense and warm feel to the vapor.
It’s got everything you could possibly hope for in an AIO system. It’s got the flavor, it’s got all the versatility in the world, with two ways to adjust its airflow, and every wattage option between 5 and 25W. You can even get that tight MTL you’re looking for if you have a good MTL drip tip on hand. There’s really nothing this system can’t do that you may expect from an all-in-one. Put simply, there’s not a really good reason not to buy this, unless you’re 100% locked in to your current portable system. If you were one of those out there closely watching the Orchid when it released, your patience has been rewarded – with the Wocket. This is top-of-the-line, and at $30, you really have no excuse.
