Size comparison with other Nords

As far as the size of the device is compared with all the other Nords, it’s a bit strange one because it kind of sits in between the Nord 4 and the Nord 2 as the size goes. Furthermore, the Nord 4 is 104.9mm by 33.7mm by 24.4mm, while the Nord 2 is 95 x 30.5 x 20mm. The size of leather version of Smok Nord 50W is actually 32 by 98 by 23.9mm, while the regular version measures 31 x 22.6 x 97mm.  This size indicates that it lies in between these two pods i-e the Nord 4 and the Nord 2. Comparing it with nord x, which again is pretty much same. Markedly, it’s just a little bit taller and a little bit fatter.
