Design and Build Quality
If you are conversant with the Vuse Vype EPod device, then you will be able to see some similarities in their build, however, the alto features a unique design on its body that makes it stand out even when both devices are held together. The Alto sports a metallic chassis that is sturdy and durable, this is unlike many of the plastic designs that most pod systems use. As a result, the Alto is impervious to light falls.
Altogether, the Vuse Alto measures 10.3cm x 1.9cm x 1.0cm, so it is not something that would give you issues carrying it about since it will be easily fit into any pocket or bag. Weighing in at 22.5 grams makes the Alto slightly chunky for a pod system, however, it is still convenient enough to carry around, even when you will be vaping for a long time.
The design of the chassis is rather simplistic. There are no fancy lights or additional gimmicks. Since the device is draw activated, there are no buttons or switches. All you get are the VYPE logo and an LED light that serves as the battery level indicator. The LED light flashes 10 times to indicate a low battery. It remains on while you charge and goes off once you unplug the charger.
Below the Alto EPod device is a proprietary magnetic connection that you use hand-in-hand with the magnetic charger that comes with the kit. At the top of the EPod is the pod bay that also features a magnetic connection, but this time, the magnets hold the pods in place so they do not shake while you vape or while the device is in your pocket.
The Alto EPod comes equipped with a 350mAh rechargeable battery. On a full charge, the battery guarantees to deliver about 195 puffs which should get you through about ¾ of the e juice contained in the pod. Using the magnetic charger, you can power the battery in about 70 minutes.
As an addition, the device comes with a suite of protective features that ensure you get a smooth vaping experience every time you take a drag. It comes with over-discharging protection that cuts off the power delivery when the battery of the Alto falls below a certain voltage limit. It also comes with overcharging and overcurrent protection that ensures that the battery does not draw too much current when it is plugged in.
How The Alto Performs
Together with the 1.9ml ejuice pods that are sold separately, the Alto EPod can deliver tight cigarette-like mouth-to-lung draws that would make any transitioning smoker feel right at home. The throat hit is strong and smooth thanks to the nicotine concentration of the ejuice pods.
