The first thing of note about the Airo is its looks and build quality. It looks fancier than its price tag. It measures 100 mm x 25 mm x 12 mm, and it weighs a little over 51 g. It’s a bit taller than the Aspire Breeze 2 and SMOK Nord, but it’s thinner and less wide than both.
The Airo is a made of a thick zinc alloy with leather-like front and back panels. While the panels are effectively stickers, they’re cut and placed well with no unsightly gaps or awkward alignments. I’ve picked at the panels and they’re not easily removed.
The Airo takes magnetic drop-in pods. The magnets could be a little stronger. It’s one of those vapes where a drop will cause the pods to pop out, but they’re strong enough to hold the weight of the device while being held by the pod.
