Draw: The original Suorin Air is much airier than the V2. It’s neither MTL or DL. It’s a weird mixture in between, very airy but not airy enough for good DL. The draw on the V2 is more suitable for an MTL draw but my first pod was far too tight — like drinking a milkshake through a coffee straw!
Not believing that this was correct I prepared the second pod that I ordered separately. Way better. The second V2 pod gave me a nice draw that I was able to enjoy; not too loose and not too tight. I’d compare it to the draw of SMPO, just a tiny bit looser. Unfortunately, I can’t say which draw — too tight or loose — is what you’ll get since I got two pods with different draws.
If your pod is too tight, there’s a little hack for getting an easier and less restricted draw. All you need to do is take something like a little screwdriver and lift the plastic under the chimney. After you’ve done this you should have an airflow almost as airy as the V1, but it’s still capable of MTL draw.
Flavor and vapor: Depending on your luck with pods, the vapor and flavor aren’t all that different. The vapor is, however, above average for the size and type of the device. They’re both good at that. But the flavor on the V1 is much more inconsistent due to a lot of dry hits.
Leaks: I’ve gotten a little leakage with both versions. Not a lot mind you. But if it continues, I worry that it could possibly kill the batteries. I’ve used it with nic salts ranging from 50/50 all the way to 70 VG with the same results.
Dry hits: The original Suorin Air gives dry and burnt hits often. There are a lot of theories and hacks for trying to alleviate it, but it comes down to a poorly designed atomizer. The V2 is much better in giving consistent, non-dry hits, but it’s not as good as it should be considering it’s supposed to be temperature controlled.
