RELX Essential Pod Vape Starter Kit Review

The RELX Essential Pod Kit is an easy-to-use starter kit from a promising new entrant to the vaping industry. The device utilizes Relx’s prefilled nicotine salt ejuice pods to deliver an unparalleled vaping experience that is designed to give every vaper a good run for their money.

A Little About RELX

RELX is the manufacturer behind the Essential Pod Kit that you would be hearing about in this review. They were established in 2017 with a goal to bring top-quality and safety to the vaping industry using their pod kits. Over the years, their products have sought to set them apart from the newer entrants and do away with all the minor irritations of early vape design. As a result, they anchor their products on flavor, consistent performance, ease of use, and last but not least, a satisfying experience. 

Other than the Essential Pod Kit, they have other vape starter kits which you would be able to find on many vape stores.

Design and Build

RELX Essential Pod Kit is a closed pod system. This means that there is no need for coils or messing around with ejuice bottles. The device is compact and lightweight so carrying it around should be a breeze. It is constructed from an aluminum alloy so it is also as sturdy as it is lightweight. The device is available in Blue, White, Black, Red, Green, and Purple, just in case you fancy a little show-off when out vaping with your friends.

The device features a draw-activated sensor system which takes away the need for pesky buttons and makes the device even simpler to use. 

RELX Essential Pod Kit features an in-built 350mAh rechargeable battery. All in all, the battery of the RELX Essential should last for roughly 500 puffs per charge before you would need to recharge. When you are running out of power, there is an indicator light on the body of the device that lets you know just in time for you to recharge. The device makes use of a USB Type-C charging port that can fully charge your device in 40 minutes using its high-quality 1amp USB wall plug.

At the top of the device is the pod bay that consists of magnets that help to hold the pod securely so there is no wiggling. The pods come together with a duckbill-shaped mouthpiece that gives ergonomic comfort. 

The RELX Essential pre-filled pods come with 1.8ml of 18mg nicotine salt ejuice. They each sport a high-quality 1.2ohm ceramic coil that is well known for its longevity as well as its ability to keep your flavor fresh and tasty throughout the life of the pod. Once your pod runs out, you can simply pull it out and insert a fresh one.
