Artery PAL II Pod Vape Review

Ever since I decided to make a salt nic system one of my daily vapes, I've wanted a device that packed more battery life and could hold more juice than that of the average system.

I quite like auto draw pod vapes, because not having any buttons means that you don't need to turn it on and off, and it's just that much easier to vape.
Like the Nord, the Novo has a metal body with snakeskin resin plates on the front and back of the device. I'm not exactly the biggest fan of snakeskin resin, but the lack of swirly colors that you usually see with resin does provide a remarkably clean look. Since the snakeskin resin isn't…
