Nevoks Pagee Air

For my second look at the latest Nevoks starter kits, I’m trying out the Pagee Air. I tried out the original version almost two years ago and this new revision is smaller but drops the replaceable coils for the APX pod system bringing it more in line with other contemporary kits.

Specifications

  • 74.8 x 47 x 12.8 mm
  • 76 grams
  • Adjustable power (3 levels)
  • 1000mAh internal battery with USB-C charging
  • 2ml APX PCTG pod system

Nevoks Pagee Air boxed

The Pagee Air is available in seven different colour options and Nevoks sent the Crimson red and Imperial gold versions over for testing. Royal blue, dark purple, carbon fibre, space grey, and rose pink finish out the line-up.

Nevoks Pagee Air contents

This is a pretty bare bones starter kit with the Pagee Air, a 0.8ohm APX s1 pod, USB-C charge cable, lanyard, and brief instruction manual being included in the box. It was disappointing to just find a single pod included here and the inclusion of a 1.2ohm APX s1 pod would have rounded the package out a lot better whilst also allowing new users the opportunity to try both of the available pods to see which one was going to suit their needs best.

Nevoks Pagee Air details

The Pagee Air is an ultra slim pod kit that’s perfect for slipping into a shirt pocket, although the zinc alloy construction coupled with the relatively large 1000mAh battery capacity does mean that this is surprisingly heavy despite its compact dimensions. Having said that, at 76 grams it is still very pocketable, and it does feel reassuringly solid in its construction and the slightly rounded corners make this comfortable in the hand. The small size means that even I could manage to hide this in my hand if stealth vaping is your thing.

Each side of the Pagee Air has a large “leather” panel for added comfort and grip with a large “Pagee Air” logo inset in a metal panel on one side. My favourite of the two supplied kits was the Crimson red version as I thought the dark red leather panels were a really great match for the gunmetal chassis.

The Pagee Air offers three power levels (3.2, 3.4 and 3.6 volts) which are selected with the small tactile button at the base of the unit. Your selected power is indicated by the three bright LEDs just above this, and these also indicate your remaining power status when you use the unit or the charging status when plugged in. I was a little surprised to find that there doesn’t seem to be any way to turn the Pagee Air off.

Nevoks Pagee Air charging port

Charging is done via the USB-C port on the base of the unit. In my test, this hit a peak charging rate of 0.89 amps with a recorded capacity of 908mAh, but annoyingly this is one of those devices that never drops the charge rate to zero so I had to run a second test whilst keeping an eye on the charging LEDs to see what the charge would be if you simply unplugged this once the lights went out. On that run, it achieved a capacity of 948mAh in 1 hour and 5 minutes.

Nevoks Pagee Air pods

The APX S1 pods are available in 0.8ohm and 1.2ohm with a modern mesh coil design, these use Ferrochrome so they should be suitable for anyone with nickel sensitivity like me. These sit in the recess at the top of the Pagee Air and are held in by magnets which easily passed the shake test. You even get a small degree of airflow adjustment as you can alter the it slightly by turning the pod around in the chassis.

There’s a fill bung on the side of the pods which I did find a little fiddly to open, fingernails are helpful here, but the actual fill port is large enough to allow for easy filling. One downside of this type of design is that although the pods are nice and clear, they’re effectively hidden from view in use so you’ll need to remove them or tilt the Pagee Air on its side to judge your e-liquid levels.

Nevoks Pagee Air pod packs

Luckily for me, Nevoks sent over a pack of the APX S1 1.2ohm pods so I had the opportunity to try both the available coils. These come supplied in a blister pack of three pods.

The Pagee Air is a purely auto draw activated system and this has worked flawlessly with both pods. Both pods give off great flavour and I found myself swapping between the two quite frequently. They are both a mouth to lung draw, and my choice would be the 0.8ohm pod with its slightly more open draw, but I would be equally as happy with the 1.2ohm pod as well.

Pros

  • Compact design
  • Great flavour from the pods
  • Ferrochrome coils

Cons

  • No way to turn the device off

Conclusion

I found myself liking the Pagee Air quite a bit, and I really can’t fault the great flavour reproduction from the APX S1 pods. The compact design makes this great to throw in a pocket whilst you’re out and about, and it’s a bit of a looker with those large leather side panels.

Many thanks to Nevoks for sending the Pagee Air pod kit over 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.
