Many have crowned the SKE disposable as king of it’s category, and claim it’s better than any other disposable on the market, so when they released their pod version of the SKE disposables, we were intrigued. Is it going to live up to the hype and give us the same great vaping experience? We tested it out and rated it accordingly below. SKE Crystal Plus Key Features & Specifications The SKE Plus is rechargeable and is compatible with their Crystal Plus prefilled pods, offering 15 different flavours similar to the disposable range. They also recently released empty and refillable pods, so you can use it to vape any liquid of your choosing! The device itself is lightweight and pocket friendly, and each pre-filled pod offers 600 puffs of vaping with 20mg of nicotine, however the beauty of the refillable pod now means you can control the nicotine strength as well as the flavour. The kit uses 1.1ohm coils for enhanced flavour production, and a re chargeable 400mAh built in battery for all day vaping. Specifications: Size: 133.4 x 17 x 17mm Pod Capacity: 2.0ml Puffs: Up To 600 Puffs Per Pod Battery: 400mAh (Built-in, Rechargeable) For MTL (Mouth to Lung) Vaping Resistance: 1.1Ω Mesh Coil Output Power: 3.6V Charging Current:<1A Draw Activation Type C Charging Port Compact & Durable Design What’s In The SKE Crystal Plus Box? Inside each box is the Crystal Plus kit itself, and a USB-C charger. We’ve found that a lot of kits don’t come with a charger anymore, so this is appreciated. Pods for the device are sold separately. SKE Crystal Plus Prefilled Pod Flavour List Blueberry Cherry Blackberry Blueberry Raspberry Blueberry Sour Raspberry Blue Fusion Blue Razz Lemonade Cherry Ice Cherry Strawberry Raspberry Cotton Candy Bubblegum Fire Brew Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava Lemon & Lime Pink Lemonade Rainbow Strawberry Burst Watermelon Ice Flavour Test The Crystal Plus has a lot to live up to – it’s disposable cousin is one of our favorites, and comes with a much larger range of flavours. But of course we can confirm that the Crystal Plus kit did not disappoint, and it’s pretty much exactly the same. The flavours are full and sweet, the nicotine hit is smooth, and we basically couldn’t tell the difference between the pod kit and the disposable! We also noticed that it doesn’t dry out your mouth when you’re vaping, something which we’ve experienced with Elf Bars before. 10/10 from us. Build Quality, Design and Battery Life Build Quality The build quality of the SKE Crystal Plus Pod Kit is pretty standard, it’s lightweight and very easily assembled. It’s all plastic casing however does cause concern if you were to drop it from any sort of height. Unlike an Elf Bar that has a rubber exterior, the Crystal Plus has no protection so might crack if dropped. We have no concerns of the pod itself falling out if dropped, because of the strong magnet keeping it in place. If only we had those same strong magnets on our blackberry phones back in 2014 (if you’ve ever dropped one before you know exactly what we’re referring too). Design If someone handed us a Crystal Plus kit, we would immediately think it was a Crystal disposable. It’s identical to the eye in almost everyway, the weight feels the same, the size, and on first glance you can’t tell that it’s got a removeable pod! Just like the disposable, the kit has a square, semi transparent design with a flat metallic bottom, allowing it to stand upright. You can also see the liquid in the mouthpiece, and the pod itself is clear so you’re always aware of how much liquid you’ve got left. The mouthpiece is the perfect size and allows for a comfortable vape, with a slightly wider hole than the average disposable allowing for a fuller hit. Battery Life The battery life was the same as your average disposable; the kit lasted roughly a day/600puffs on a full charge before we needed to plug it back in again. How Do I Remove The Silicone Plug From The SKE Crystal Plus Pod? If you’ve pulled the silicone plug upwards to release the liquid into the coil, and you’re now staring at it wondering how to successfully remove it from the inside of the mouthpiece, don’t worry, it just needs a firm pull! The whole silicone piece will come out of the mouthpiece hole with some gentle force. Pro’s and Con’s of the SKE Crystal Plus Pod Vape Kit Pro’s Great flavour Identical to the SKE disposable while saving money in the long run Good battery life Option to purchase refillable pods Con’s Small-ish flavour range Summary… Overall, the SKE Crystal Plus Pod Kit is one of the best alternatives to disposables available in the UK right now. It’s smaller than a lot of other pods kits, and much more pocket friendly, and the only difference you’ll notice if you swap from SKE disposables to the Plus pod kit, is to your wallet. It produces a smooth, pleasant vape with nic salt e-liquid, making quitting smoking that little bit easier. _____________________________________________________________________________________ Need help with anything vape related or have a question about our products?
