The Nevoks Lusty is an AIO device with an internal 1000mAh battery. The Lusty is also an open-system pod device with removable coils in the kit. Users can choose from several coil heads to pair with the cartridges. Inside the Lusty kit are two coils. One is a 1.4ohm, MTL, regular-coil with Kanthal.
The other is a 0.6ohm, DL, mesh-coil for larger cloud production. The device features a unique, eye-catching design (available in four colors) with its glossy, zinc-alloy frame. The Lusty also features a hard plastic shell and a rubberized panel for a better grip. The pod can hold 3.3ml/2ml (TPD). There is also an interesting airflow design unique to the device.

Up Close With the Nevoks Lusty
The Lusty pod vape has a similar form-factor to other AIOs, namely, the SMOK Nord. It has a rounded frame with no straight edges. The device stands at 97mm (3.8”) with the pod installed and has a width of about 19.7mm (0.7”). The frame is zinc alloy, and the front/back panels have a rubberized grip to make the device more ergonomic.
The front panel also has a raised button platform. This is the Lusty’s main power and firing button. The device does not work on an automatic draw. The button blends with the device and rises slightly out of the flat surface, which makes it very comfortable to use. The branding on the unit is very tasteful as well. “Nevoks” is written on one side; “Lusty” on the other. The USB charging port for the battery is on the side and has a rubber stopper.
There are some battery ventilation holes at the base of the device. The pod bay at the top has three gold contacts to connect with the coil. There is no magnetic connection to keep the pod in place, but the press-fit action of the device makes sure the cartridge is secure. The pod has a flat, smooth, and full mouthpiece that is comfortable in the mouth.
Although it looks like the Lusty does not have adjustable airflow, it does. Users can install the pods in one of two ways. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which way produces which effect. Installing the pod one way reduces the airflow; removing, reversing, and then installing it the other way increases the airflow.
Again, no arrow marks or indicators are showing which way a user needs to install the pod to produce the desired effect. They will have to experiment to find out.
The Look and Feel of the Lusty
The Lusty fits great in hand, and anywhere else you want to put it. The three primary build materials are zinc alloy, rubber, and plastic. The device is very lightweight and pocket-friendly. The position of the power/firing button is also helpful. No matter which hand you hold it in, the switch is never far from your thumb, making it very easy to take a draw. The rubber panels also provide a reassuring softness that makes the Lusty comfortable to hold.
The Lusty has an internal 1000mAh, which is a good size for this type of device. The battery, along with the microprocessor inside the device, can output anywhere between 12-25W. The chip also detects the coil inside and sets the appropriate wattage setting, automatically.
There is a hidden LED light under the button that shows the current battery level via different colors.
- Green = full power
- Blue = medium power
- Red = time to recharge
There is no adjusting the power output, so the Lusty is a direct voltage kind-of-device. The coils in the kit have different ratings. The 1.4ohm coil vapes best between 12-15W and the mesh, sub-ohm coil vapes best between 20-25W.
Lusty E-Liquid Pods
There is some debate as to whether the Lusty is an all-in-one (AIO) or a pod device. It has the characteristics of a pod device, like, the pod, but it also has removable coils, which place it in the AIO category. As the device has no adjustable features – unless you count the reversible airflow – some people think it belongs in the pod device category.
In any case, the pod is very well-designed. The device has a side-fill port with a rubber stopper to close it. One piece of advice: make sure the coil is installed before filling it, as the coil is what stops the other opening on the cartridge.
The side-fill port is also an excellent way to prevent leaks, as other devices with bottom fill ports tend to leak. The Lusty pod can hold up to 3.3ml for regular versions. The TPD version holds the only 2ml. The coils for the Lusty are press-fitted into the bottom opening.
There are o-rings on both ends of the coil, so it stays securely in place. Installed one way, the pod increases airflow; installed another way, the pod constricts it, which probably has to do with the placement of the side-fill port. The rubber stopper extends out, giving room to let a little more air enter.
The Lusty Coils
The comparison of the Lusty to the SMOK Nord does not end only with their respective shapes. The two devices use similar coil types as well. The coils are so alike that Lusty coils are compatible with Nord pods, and vice-versa. The two coils are not precisely the same. The Nevoks atomizer heads have larger juice ports and more o-rings.
These are slight differences, which is why vapor production and quality for both coils styles are the same. The 0.6ohm coil may use up more juice and battery, as it has a lower resistance. This means that it would probably expire faster, say, in a week if used all the time. The 1.4ohm coil could last longer, as it has a higher resistance.
The Nevoks Lusty is very easy to use. Filling the pods and installing them is very intuitive.
- There is a simple five-clicks-on,
- five-clicks-off for the battery.
The device is not automatic, so vapers have to press on the firing button to vape.
As vapers have to press the button, its position and design are very well-thought-out. It has a nice, clicky feel and rises naturally out of the device’s form, almost as if there were no buttons. The button adds to the overall comfort in using the Lusty. The mouthpiece is also broad, and it is easy to get your lips around.
The pod has an easy-to-open (even though some have said it gets stuck inside the pod sometimes) fill port, and the hole is wide enough to accommodate most bottle tips. The USB charging port on the side of the device is also easy-to-find.
Charging the device should take between one hour and one and a half hours. The battery has quick charging, but there is no pass-through charging feature. Vapor production is outstanding.
The 1.4ohm coil delivers a satisfying throat hit, especially with low-VG, nicotine salt e-juice. The sub-ohm mesh coil also produces great clouds. The flavor quality for both coils is also above-average, although not superior to other types of coils and systems.
Lusty Vape vs. SMOK Nord
The SMOK Nord looks a lot like the Lusty and vice-versa. The Nord has an internal 1100mAh battery that can power the device up to 15W, which is less than what the Nevoks device can do.
The Nord has similar coils and uses a 3ml pod, which is slightly less than the 3.3ml cartridges for the other device. The other similarity is that the two coils in the kit are rated for 1.4ohms and 0.6ohms.
Lusty Vape vs. SMOK Trinity Alpha
The Trinity Alpha is an open system device, but it also uses a pod that has removable coils. The Alpha cartridges can hold up to 2.8ml of e-liquid and use sub-ohm, as well as mouth-to-lung atomizer heads.
The Alpha has an internal 1000mAh battery and can fire as high as 25W, which is similar to the other devices mentioned here. The Alpha has a more straight-edged form-factor and has several buttons to control its functions.
Lusty Vape vs. ePuffer XPOD
The XPOD is a disposable pod device that uses a 280mAh battery along with a 2ml liquid cartridge. The cell and cartridge are both encased in a hard-plastic shell.
The XPOD has no buttons and works on an automatic draw. The battery can last for as long as 200 puffs, and pods can come with three different flavors in a single nicotine strength – 1.8mg.

Nevoks Lusty Review: A Lust for Vapor
Is this device an AIO or a pod? Do you think its a Nord clone? Do you prefer removable coils or an all-in-one cartridge? Let us know in the comments section below.
The Nevoks Lusty strikes an excellent first impression for a new company. Nevoks had previously released a disposable vape – the Nimo – but this unit is their first non-disposable, AIO vape. The company also makes an RDA pod device, as well as another dedicated pod device (no removable coils).
The unit offers excellent vapor production. The winner has to be the removable coils – the company has several other coil options for the device as well. The device is easy-to-use, has good battery life, and shows no leaking problems. It should be a great introductory device, as well as a sleek addition to any vaper’s stable of compact, AIO units.
