Nevoks Feelin X

Nevoks Feelin X pod kit 

My Vape Store asked if we’d be interested in taking a look at the new Nevoks Feelin X pod kit. I recently reviewed the Nevoks Pagee kit over on the forum so I happened to know that the SPL-10 coils common to both kits are kanthal and as the Feelin X seems to be aimed more at the direct lung side of vaping, I quickly stuck my hand up!

Specifications

  • 109 x 30 x 20 mm
  • 61 grams
  • Polycarbonate and ABS construction
  • 1600mah internal battery
  • USB-C charging
  • 0.49 inch screen
  • Output 5~40 watts
  • 5ml PCTG pod with TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) mouthpiece
  • Uses SPL-10 coils common to other Nevoks kits

Nevoks Feelin X kit and extras

My Vape Store certainly knows how to get into my good books as besides the Feelin X kit, they sent out a few extra goodies in the package: a box of spare pods, extra coils and, almost as importantly, sweeties! Bribery will only go so far though, so I spent a good week putting this through its paces before drawing any firm conclusions about the Feelin X.

Nevoks Feelin X unboxing

The Feelin X is available in seven colours to suit all tastes, and I was sent the green version to try out. This wouldn’t have been a colour I would automatically think of buying for myself, but it’s actually a rather fetching olive green which I took an instant shine to. It comes nicely presented in the box with two coils and the world's shortest USB-C cable in a peripheral box along with a small envelope containing a brief user manual etc.

Once I’d removed the Feelin X from the packaging, I was surprised by just how lightweight it is, at 61 grams fully loaded this is easy to throw into any pocket without weighing you down and this is down to its Polycarbonate and ABS plastic construction. Whilst many plastic pod kits can end up feeling rather cheap and nasty, this actually feels quite high quality with thick outer walls and a slightly soft touch finish to the exterior. This is further enhanced by the buttons flanking the top and bottom of the 0.49” screen which have nice tactile feedback and zero button rattle.

Despite the fairly compact size, Nevoks have managed to cram a 1600mAh battery into the chassis of the Feelin X and this can be recharged via the USB-C port found on one side. There’s a claimed charge time of just 50 minutes at 2 amps, but in my tests this hit a peak charge rate of about 1.7 amps with just 1090mah recorded in that time. A full charge actually took around one and a half hours with a recorded usable capacity of 1363mah. All the SPL-10 coils have fairly low power requirements so this should be enough to get you through most of the day on a single charge.

The pod sits in a large recess up top and is secured by four magnets, there’s minimal wiggle present here and I’ve had no issues with wandering pods, however you will get a bit of condensation build up in here as with most of these pod style kits so it’s worthwhile giving things a quick inspection and wipe down from time to time to ensure reliable long term operation. 

The Feelin X can be operated by either pressing the power button or by using the autodraw feature. With the lower ohm (direct lung) coils, the autodraw works flawlessly and I found myself using this rather than the power button, but with the higher ohm coils this only works if you close the adjustable airflow on the side right down to almost nothing. To be fair, the higher ohm coils need the airflow to be closed down to get the best performance, but even so you may find that the power button becomes the better option here.

Nevoks Feelin X coils and pod

Included in the Feelin X kit are 0.3ohm and 0.6ohm Kanthal mesh coils, these are from the SPL-10 coil range which are used in several other Nevoks kits and it’s refreshing to see a manufacturer using a standard coil design across a range of devices. Coils are press fit into the bottom of the pod, and there’s a rather generously sized fill port on the side which means that the 5ml pod supplied for review was a doddle to fill. The pod features a duck bill design with a TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) mouthpiece which feels quite rubbery, this does initially feel a bit weird and had a bit of a chemical taste which fortunately wore off very quickly.

I’d already tried 0.6ohm coil in the Pagee kit not too long ago and found that whilst this was a direct lung coil, it was perhaps a little too restricted for my liking and left me feeling like I needed to up the nic content to 6% instead of my regular 3%, so I decided to jump in with the 0.3ohm coil which has a larger internal bore. This is most definitely a full blown direct lung experience and even with my standard 3% nic, it kept me satisfied throughout the day. Coil life seems decent as well with this lasting well over a week. My Vape Store was also kind enough to throw a couple of the 0.4ohm coils in the package as well and these are just as good with rich flavour and a nice draw. I’m not quite sure why some the coils have red O-rings whilst others have blue ones as all the coils appear to be Kanthal (I pulled apart a 0.3ohm and 0.8ohm coil to check)

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Decent battery life
  • Kanthal coils
  • Coils are compatible with several other Nevoks kits

Cons

  • Autodraw doesn’t work reliably with higher ohm coils

Conclusion

To be honest I wasn’t expecting much from the Nevoks Feelin X kit as it’s so similar to many competing pod systems, but this has been a joy to use. The 0.3ohm and 0.4ohm direct lung coils are where this kit really shines for me, and the smallish form factor and lightweight polycarbonate shell means that this is ideal for throwing in a pocket when you’re nipping out for a few hours and you don’t want to be weighed down with a bulky kit. Once again, I wasn’t as enamored with the higher ohm (restricted direct lung and mouth to lung) coils, and the airflow in the Feelin X isn’t really geared to these coils either so I’d try one of Nevoks’ mouth to lung oriented kits like the Pagee if that’s more your style.

Many thanks to My Vape Store for sending the Nevoks Feelin X kit out for review.

I was a twenty a day smoker for 25 years and like most smokers I was always going to quit "next week". Having hit my mid forties and having the usual smokers cough and difficulty with anything more than moderate exercise it was obviously time to give up the cancer sticks. I bought my first e-cigarette in 2013 when they were expensive, difficult to find and quite frankly... crap. I used it for about a week then went back to the roll ups, mark up another failed quit attempt. The fact that I had just changed jobs and was under quite a lot of stress probably didn't help. Move on to 2016 and whilst I was browsing eBay I noticed that one of the suggested items that would occasionally pop up was for a cheap e-cigarette. It looked similar to the one I'd bought 3 years earlier but it was only £5 (about 8 times cheaper than before) so I decided to give it another go on a whim. Once the kit arrived I managed to gradually replace the cigarettes with my new kit over a two month period and got into watching YouTube reviews for newer kit. My cheap and cheerful kit was replaced by a more upmarket affair, and being a noob I made a mistake once it arrived... I put in the supplied direct lung coil, this was of course a complete revelation and I haven't touched a cigarette since. Oh and I no longer spend the first five minutes of every day having a coughing fit either.
