Suorin Air Plus
Suorin’s pod vapes have long been some of the best you can get. The Suorin Air V2 was slim, small and portable. It was also great for nicotine salts, great for flavor and it put out some nice clouds too.
The Suorin Air Plus is the latest addition to the “Air” lineup. It keeps the same small size and shape as the original but now packs a larger 930mAh battery. There are two resistances to choose from for your pod: 0.7ohm or 1.0ohm. These pods also hold more ejuice than the Air V2, up to a maximum of 3.2ml.
I’ve spent the last two weeks using the Suorin Air Plus and I’m going to give you all of the details. Is the Suorin Air Plus worth picking up?

Design & Build Quality
Boy is this device slim! That was the first thing I thought of when I took the Air Plus out of the box. It’s only 10mm thick! The Suorin Air V2 was a little slimmer at 8mm thick but the size increase is barely noticeable and it’s still extremely thin. The Air Plus is also very small and compact; it’s 93.2mm tall and 50mm wide which is only slightly smaller than a credit card.
The card-like shape and slimness of the Air Plus make it a great “covert vaping” device. It’s small and slim enough to slip into any pocket with ease. And if I didn’t already know what it was, I would think that it’s just a mini USB drive.
The design is also really simple. Suorin Air Plus is printed on one side of the device and the Suorin logo is printed on the other. Otherwise, the device is plain. I, for one, like the low-key and simple design of this pod vape. It suits my style.
The paint quality on the Air Plus is good, too. It hasn’t scratched or faded in the time that I’ve been using it and I haven’t been gentle. I’ve thrown it in my pocket with my keys and it’s still looking good. The paint does hold smudges though. It’s not very noticeable but it’s still worth a mention.
Unlike the Suorin Air V2 there’s no ON/OFF switch on the Air Plus. There are no buttons at all. The device is draw-activated so once you insert the pod, it’s ready to go.
Pod performance can make or break a pod vape. With the Suorin Air Plus you get two different pods included in the box:
- One 0.7ohm Pod (for use with regular freebase nicotine ejuices)
- One 1.0ohm Pod (for use with nicotine salt ejuices)
The pod slips into the top of the Suorin Air Plus and attaches magnetically to the device. The magnets are pretty strong and they pull the pod securely into place. The magnet is strong enough that once they pod is installed, it’s not going to come out by accident.
There’s no wiggling once the pod is installed either. Because of how wide the pods are and how deep they sit inside of the device, the pods don’t so much as budge. The pod also sits completely flush which gives the device a seamless appearance when installed.
I hate it when pods are so dark that you have to hold them up to the light to check your remaining ejuice. Thankfully, that’s not the case here. The pods for the Air Plus have a light tint on them but it’s still easy enough to see your ejuice level. Finally, a company that gets it.
The draw hole placement is a little strange and takes some time to get used to. Instead of being centered like you might expect, it’s actually on the corner of the pod. I found myself trying to take a draw off the wrong corner more times than I can count so you have to pay attention. It can get frustrating when you’re constantly flipping the device around when all you want to do is vape.
For filling there’s a silicone plug on the bottom of the pod. It has a little tab that makes it easy to pull out and place it back in. The plug is deep and thick and keeps the ejuice where it should be: inside of the pod. The fill port is wide enough for even droppers to fit with ease. Each pod will hold up to 3.5ml of ejuice.
There’s no adjustable airflow on the Air Plus so what you get is what you get. It’s not a bad draw but it’s not as tight as I prefer. No matter which pod you use it’s somewhere in the realm of an airy MTL draw.
Even with nicotine salts, I still found it pleasant to vape on. It isn’t too airy as to be harsh with nic salts. It’s still a very smooth draw. But If you’re after a super tight MTL then this isn’t the vape for you.
For how small and slim it is, the Suorin Air Plus packs a huge 930mAh battery inside. It also uses USB-C charging for faster recharge times than with micro-USB.
There’s an LED indicator hidden on the side of the device. It’s integrated behind a darkly tinted plastic panel which is pretty neat. The LED’s only light up when you take a draw or put the device to charge. There are five LEDs:
- 5 LEDs: 100-80%
- 4 LEDs: 80-60%
- 3 LEDs: 60-40%
- 2 LEDs: 40-20%
- 1 LED: 20% or Less
I got almost three full refills before I had to recharge so the battery life is pretty good. It’s better than a lot of pod vapes out there that’s for sure. Considering it doesn’t use a lot of ejuice either, three refills translated to about three days of very heavy usage. Pretty incredible.
Recharge times are also super speedy. It took about 45minutes to recharge the device back to full.
I’m very impressed with how well this thing vapes. It’s a smooth draw with either pod and it’s super quiet. There’s no crackling or spitback to speak of either.
The draw activation also works flawlessly. I didn’t have any trouble with it auto firing or getting stuck. It worked with ease every time I took a draw.
The 0.7ohm pod was the pod I used the most with the Suorin Air Plus. Although they say it’s specifically meant for use with nicotine salts I used it with both 70/30 freebase nicotine as well as 70/30 nicotine salt ejuices. The flavor is nice and noticeable but it’s not what I would call “full”. It’s still excellent enough to taste all of the notes in your ejuice. I used this pod down to it’s last breath and only then did the flavor start to dull.
Vapor production was better than I expected. The 0.7ohm pod can put out some pretty large clouds which is great if that’s what you’re into.
The 1.0ohm pod is very similar to the 0.7ohm pod. It’s just as smooth and flavorful. I really enjoyed vaping on this pod as well and I used it until it was on its last legs. The vapor production was a little less than the 0.7ohm pod but still respectable.
A final but very important note, this thing doesn’t leak. The fill plug on the pods is extremely secure and doesn’t let any ejuice out. Even when the pods were on their deathbed they still didn’t spill a drop of ejuice.
There aren’t many negative things to say about this device. The flavor and clouds are great and the battery life is even better. The draw will be a deciding factor on if you decide to get this device though. It’s not very tight and is instead an airy MTL.
I really like the design as well. The card shape and slim profile are very attractive. It’s perfect for when you don’t want to carry around a huge and heavy device,
The Air Plus is undoubtedly one of the better pod vapes out there, that’s for sure. It’s so good that I’m probably going to be buying some more pods so that I can use it some more!
I’ve had many problems with the Suorin Air Plus. The coils burn often even though I let the cotton soak for the proper amount of time. The battery connectivity posts often wont connect with the pod causing it not to function. I had none of these problems with the original Suorin Air.
Sucks that you’re having troubles with this device. It’s really a great pod vape! What kind of ejuice are you using? It could be the thickness of your ejuice causing the coils not to wick properly. I used 70/30 ejuices with the Air Plus and it wicked just fine, never had a dry hit.
The pod not connecting with the pod is a strange issue and again, not something that I experienced. Did you try with another pod? Could be just bad quality control on that pod you got with the placement of the contacts.
I have an same issue as Jim above 😦 Recently I bought Suorin Air Plus, 0.7 pods for regular juice and Candy King Peachy Rings (not salted). Even if I used all new vaporizer, pods and juice, it tasted totally burnt and felt like my throat was burning. I tried 4 different new pods but the result was the same. I’ve been using Suorin Air (not plus) for an year, but it never happened. If you know why, please help me 😦 I already bought 14 x 0.7 pods..
For those having an issue, is the Sourin authentic?
I have never had a problem with mine.
“A final but very important note, this thing doesn’t leak. The fill plug on the pods is extremely secure and doesn’t let any ejuice out.” My sourin air plus pod leaked into my system and destroyed one of the pins. How much did you make writing this?
I made exactly $0 writing this. Tons of people have used this device including some of my friends and none of them have had leaking issues. Even the poster above you said they haven’t had issues. You might have gotten a faulty pod.
If a device leaks we’re not afraid to say it as you can see here in the Voopoo Vinci review that Danielle tested.
By far the worst salt nic device I’ve ever wasted my money on. Within 5 days one of the connectors got stuck in the bottom and 2 days after that it stopped working for good and I was not supplied with a replacement. Pitiful.
I really like Suorin products. They’re sleek and work well. I had a Suorin Vagon for almost a year before it fell out of my pocket and I ran over it with my Jeep… it still worked but began not holding it’s battery charge for more than 2-3 hours. Previous to my clumsiness, it would work about 7-10 hours before I needed to charge again. Also, the pods would last about 1.5-2 weeks before they began to taste burned. So I got a second Suorin Vagon to replace the last one and it seemed like a completely different device. The pods were burning out every 2-3 days and battery would go maybe 4 hours max.
So then I thought I would try a Smok RPM40, despite the fact that I have never had a Smok that didn’t gurgle, leak and drive me insane. Not sure where that bit of optimism jumped into my head, but read reviews and thought maybe they have finally figured out their issues? NOPE! Gurgling and leaking into the base and every single hour, if not less, I have to pull out the pod, clean the juice off and clean the base. The damned thing burns like mad. Since I have it set to 5 on a 1-40 scale… this thing sucks. So back to the drawing board I go…
I plan to try the Suorin Air+ and see how it goes. My “dealer” actually uses every device he gets in and has been using the S Air+ for the past 2 weeks and loves it. Really hoping I can have another year long love affair with it like I did with my first Vagon. I just want to be able to vape and not have to think about it or work to get a decent hit, flavor, etc. I own a business and that is enough complication for me. The last place I need to be getting complicated from is my vape. Give me simplicity and something that quite simply just WORKS.
This is by far the worst pod system I’ve ever used. 2 weeks in and my connectors are stuck. Now I have to force my sourin pod down just to get a decent hit otherwise it’s gonna blink 8 times. Terrible product.
You said, “A final but very important note, this thing doesn’t leak. The fill plug on the pods is extremely secure and doesn’t let any ejuice out. Even when the pods were on their deathbed they still didn’t spill a drop of ejuice.”
However, I am on my 2nd of these devices in two month’s time. The first one lasted 6 weeks and the 2nd is dying after only four weeks. Every time I change a pod, I wipe the bottom down and insert it. if I pull it out an hour or so later you can see the liquid down in the device. This leads to faulty contact and the device soon dies. I agree with the other things you said about the device, But I would advise readers to expect to spend 35 plus bucks every four to six weeks to buy a new one. They just don’t last. Sorry.
That’s not good for sure. When I write the review I can only speak to my experiences I had with the device and I had no leaking issues with mine. Either I got lucky with the pods or the quality of manufacturing has gone down. Either way, sorry you’re having trouble. I’m going to try to get my hands on some more pods and do another run and see if I have any leaking issues.
