The Freemax Maxpod kit was sent to me for review from Freemax. Freemax says this is the first Freemax pod device that uses mesh coils, but that’s not entirely accurate. Their first Maxpod, which I also reviewed, also used mesh coils, but that was using an older coil version. This new Maxpod uses their newer FM SaltCoilTech 4.0 mesh coils. Not that it matters since their coils have always been great. Ever since their original Fireluke tank, I’ve loved their mesh coils. They have some of the best flavor production I’ve ever had.

It’s a stick-style vape, so it has that shape to it. It has several layers built onto the frame for extra durability. I don’t know exactly what layers they use, but it appears to be an aluminum body, a thicker plastic shell, a thin clear piece of plastic with the pattern printed on it, and another thicker clear plastic layer. So there’s a lot of protection on this device.
There are six colors available currently; yellow, red, green, blue, white, and black
There’s a little LED light on the front of the device. I do have a complaint about this. When I moved the device around in my hand, the little plastic piece in the LED light fell out. I was able to get it back in, and it seems tight, but I think that’s something you’ll have to keep an eye on.
Features and Functions
This is a draw-activated pod device that uses refillable pods, so just take a hit, and it turns on. There is no button on here to turn it off or on.
These pods are designed for both nicotine salt and freebase nic. Freemax says they’re engineered to preserve flavor and increase throat hit for both types of liquids. I find that pretty interesting in two ways; one, how is it possible, and two, why would anyone want an increased throat hit? I do like some throat hit, but I’d prefer to control that through my e-liquid choices, rather than the device.
I don’t feel like it has more of a throat hit than anything else, but the hits are satisfying. It has a nice draw, and the flavor comes out well. The airflow is on the loose side, but it’s still a mouth-to-lung draw. You can’t get a lung draw on here.
Pods and Coils
The Maxpod comes with a reusable pod that has built-in coils. There are two different pods that you can use here; a 1.2ohm and 0.8ohm coil. Both coils are made using Freemax NS Mesh coils, which they’ve been making for years now and are great coils, so you can expect to get good flavor out of these.
They say it’s 99% compatible with all flavor categories on the market. I’m honestly not even sure how that’s different from anything else on the market because I can’t think of a time where I’ve had something that didn’t seem compatible with a certain type of flavor category, but hey, that’s what Freemax says!
The pods fill up from the top of the pod, so you don’t have to take it out of the device to fill it up. You push hard from the top of the pod to pop the cap off, or you can get your fingernails under it from the side. But you just open up that cap and fill it up.
These are PCTG pods that have a 2ml pod capacity. There’s also a minimum fill line on the pod that shows you how far it needs to be filled at all times.
The battery inside the Maxpod kit is a 550mAh battery that pushes a 3.3-volt constant output, so you’ll always get a good hit no matter what the charge of the battery is.
And it charges using USB-C.
Everything from Freemax delivers excellent flavor, and this device does too. It’s a great pod device that just performs well. It charges fast with USB-C, it looks nice, it’s simple, and it’s easy to use.
