Here we have yet another pod kit. Despite the similarity with other pods out there, this one performs elegantly in its own unique way. If you’ve tried and tested dozens of kits, like I have – then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Have you ever found solace in one device, and after upgrading for a more expensive prospect, you caught yourself missing the old one? I have experienced the same thing. Some pods have their unique charm. I’ve sank the gallons of Kool-Aid offered by some brands, made the purchases, and then realized the flavor isn’t right, or the mouthpiece is uncomfortable. I get assaulted by an overwhelming feeling of, “it’s not the same.” The experience always leads me back to my original favorite.
Regardless of your subjective preference, if this one tickles your fancy in any way, then you’ve come to the right place. We will take it apart, run some tests, get as much info as we can, and bring it all back to you. The good, the bad, and the fugly - all under the bare sun.
We have the Airo Pod Kit by VEIIK. This kit is built to be both compact and affordable. Despite its size, the integrated battery boasts 360mAh; the refillable pods hold up to 2.0mL of vape juice. The 1.2ohm coils provide excellent vapor production and are ideal for nicotine salt-based juices.

My first concern when purchasing a pod-based system is the battery life. Have you ever bought a cool pod and found out the battery quickly runs out of juice? You take another look at the specs and it hits you like a train: You missed the 110mAh battery spec when you were hitting that “add to cart” button. That’s a huge letdown. One thing I loved about the Airo Pod was the 360mAh battery. It charges relatively fast and it lasts all day. It’s entirely possible to squeeze huge cloud pillows from this device all day long.
The Airo Pod’s unique selling point is the leather-like fabric hugging the panels on both sides of the device. With many color options, you can choose between cool and vibrant, or classy and sophisticated. It’s up to you what you want to display to the world. Despite its compact size, this is a weighty pod system. It’s sturdy. It’s durable.
The coils on the pods struggle to guzzle vape juices thick on VG. It’s recommended to use a 50/50 blend for better performance. I’ve tried 70/30, 60/40, and 50/50. I can attest to this recommendation. If you have a nicotine salt preference, you will love it even more. It’s the ideal vape for a mouth-to-lung experience. Airflow provides effortless billows in and out of your palate. There is no airflow control, though, but that shouldn’t wreck the rating, considering this is a pod system and not a mechanical mod paired to a sub-ohm tank.
Let’s consult our reviewers’ take on the VEIIK Airo Pod Kit. On the negative side, the side-fill method is somewhat messy. Matt and Zophie report leaking and a huge concern regarding the silicone stopper. It is not attached to the pod and could get lost easily. But on the bright side, the company sends six spares just in case. But why not create an attachment like other products do?
Another complaint is the battery life, but only if you desire an experience closer to chain-vaping. Frankly, this was more of a minimal concern rather than a proper con against the product. This is a pod system, after all. Let’s manage our expectations here.
Regardless of the complaints, the reviewers generally loved the device and provided a lot of positive feedback. Charging time is quick, and the battery lasts a decent amount of time considering its size. Speaking of which, it’s a weighty, sturdy device and boasts a huge LED light which also works as a battery life indicator.
It’s somewhat classy and affordable. The leather-like panels make it stand out from the rest. If your collection is craving and aching for a unique pod system, then the Airo Pod Kit by VEIIK is what you’ve been looking for.
