RELX 5th Gen Pod Vape Phantom Review
The new RELX Pod Vape Phantom is very similar to the RELX Infinity in general, with a smooth metallic surface that is very comfortable to touch.
The Phantom is almost the same size as the RELX Infinity. After all, they’re both compatible with RELX Pods Pro, so the pen-shaped vape appearance will not change much.
The biggest difference in appearance between the RELX Phantom and the Infinity is the LED light. The Phantom’s LEDs are four little parallel horizontal bars, while the Infinity is a circle dot shape.
You can see that RELX has put a lot of thought into the Phantom’s LED lights – each of the four bars can be lit up separately, and one bar represents 25% of the battery, which means that you can visually see how much power is left in your 5th Gen RELX pod vape.
The only drawback is that to check how much power is left in the stick, you need to pull out the cigarette and then plug it back in to see the exact power level. I think this can be completely avoided by other designs, this need to pull out the operation of the plug, a little lower the quality of the product.
During normal use, the 4 LED lights will tide flashing white; when the power has almost run out, the LED lights will flash red and stop to produce vapor when you vape (which means there’s going to be no clouds when you vape).
The RELX 5th Gen Pod Vape and the Infinity both have a 380 mAh battery capacity when it comes to the battery. Usually, a fully charged Phantom can last 2 to 3 days without recharging. It obviously lasts longer than the Classic. But battery life is not much of a problem for me, since it’s 2021 now, everyone charges their mobile devices at least once a day (I guess).
Another great feature of the Infinity is retained on the Phantom. If you vape more than 15 puffs within 15 mins, the device would vibrate once to inform you that you are inhaling too much nicotine.
In order to prevent the effects of leakage caused by air pressure change, RELX has added a pressure relief chamber in the Phantom device. This is a special new update of RELX. If you are a frequent flyer, business traveler, and you’re often troubled by liquid leaks, this new feature of the Phantom would be great for you.
RELX did a good job on the Phantom when it comes to user experience. And some little details like vibration alerts make me feel that they really care.
The draw of the RELX 5th Gen Pod Vape Phantom is very loose compared with the Classic. The Infinity has a very loose draw for a lot of ex-smokers already. But with the Phantom, the draw is even looser… Personally, I’m not obsessed with tight draw, long as it’s not so loose that I feel like I’m just breathing air through a straw. But the Phantom – very close to breathing air with flavor.
I think that most people who tend to choose pod vapes are ex-smokers who want to find a cigarette alternative to quit smoking, and would prefer vapes with tighter draw (at least I do). If you like prefer tight draw and want to feel the resistance when you vape, don’t choose the Phantom, choose the RELX i or the Classic, just don’t choose the Phantom.
Now, about the coil, same old RELX ceramic coil, so the vapor feels much the same as the Infinity, still smooth.
I haven’t got many 5th Gen pods and since it’s compatible with RELX Pods Pro, I’m not going to talk about the pod flavor review here. If you’d like to know more about the RELX Pods Pro flavors, click RELX Infinity Pods Pro Review for more.
In conclusion, the layout of RELX 5th Gen RELX Phantom is smooth and high-end, feels great to touch, and the weight is just at the perfect threshold – not too light to appear cheap, and not too heavy to affect the convenience of carrying; the stick-shaped design with tidal wave LED indicators, battery power monitoring, nicotine intake monitoring vibration feedback and other features that RELX Classic doesn’t have, making the Phantom more professional, more intimate, more advanced; the only drawback, the loose draw, which is too loose for most RELXers, is going to make the Phantom lose a lot of potential users.
Many people on the Internet saying that RELX is likely to make the Phantom the replacement of RELX Classic products that’s the very 1st Gen Products of RELX. In my opinion, with the price, the loose draw, and the number of pod flavors being considered, it’s still a little difficult for the Phantom to replace the Classic.
