The Druga Narada Pro is an attractive looking device, with its decorative panels and zinc alloy frame. There are three designs to choose from, a black carbon fibre, red and leather, and gunmetal and wood. The Narada Pro is truly a pocket size vape being only 82mm tall and 40mm wide. The tank has a 3.7ml capacity with a removable standard 510 drip tip.
The integrated fire button allows you to control the wattage by turning. Without the extra buttons the Narada Pro maintains its sleek design. A small LED screen is located on the top of the pod. It displays your wattage, resistance, and battery level. The screen will also display the time of your draw in seconds.
The Narada Pro has an RBA which can be purchased separately. It is similar to the Smoant Pasito RBA in that it has an attachment for you to build on a mod or your ohm reader. It is very small but perfect for micro coil builds. I don’t think you’ll be able to get a clapton coil in there unless it’s a very small gauge, but the convenience of building definitely makes it worth it. In the box you receive two coils, a 0.4Ω mesh coil and a 1Ω round wire coil specifically for mouth to lung with nicotine salts.
The coils are press fit into the bottom of the pod, this makes swapping out your coil a simple process with no tool required. The pods for the Narada Pro have been designed with a top-to-bottom airflow .The airflow control can be restricted for mouth to lung by sliding the switch. The airflow wide open is still a restricted draw but it is definitely capable of direct lung hits. With the top airflow design you are less likely to have leaks, but I do feel it does make it slightly more restrictive than other pods.
Out of the box the Narada Pro is a variable wattage pod. But, with the firmware update available from Augvape’s website, the Narada Pro is capable of variable voltage and temperature control. Temperature control will work with stainless steel and some nichrome. Impressive features for a small AIO device, but it does require you to download the software and manually upgrade. The process isn’t difficult if you follow the visual instructions included in the download file.
The Narada pro has a lock function to lock the resistance as it is very easy to accidentally move the dial. However, if you choose to upgrade the firmware to use temperature control and voltage mode then you will lose the functionality of the lock button. This is the one small floor of the integrated button design.Pressing the power button three times locks the device or with the firmware allows you to select the different modes.
The way the pod is designed to fit into the side of the battery is convenient, as is the side filling. It is fairly secure but it failed my drop test. I’m always dropping my pods so I like devices that stop the pod from ending up under the couch. It did fly out when dropped from a height with force, but it is otherwise reasonably secure.The USB port is located on the base of the device, which is fine since this pod doesn’t have an issue with leaking when left on its side.
Flavour and Clouds
With the top to bottom restricted airflow I didn’t feel as though I was getting as many clouds as I would from something like the Aegis Boost. The flavour was pretty good with a ni80 coil in the RBA at 30W. The included mesh coil vapes great at 25W, producing some dense clouds with freebase juice. Flavour wise I’m getting more flavour out of the mesh coil than the RBA.
The included mouth to lung coil is best vaped at a lower wattage and is best suited to nicotine salts. It had pretty good flavour, but if you’re looking for clouds you’re going to get more from the mesh coils or the RBA using temperature control mode. With the airflow open wide I’m really pretty surprised with the amount of cloud the Narada pro can pump out.

The Augvape Narada Pro is a good looking device. If you’re not into the carbon fibre version ro the wood, the red and black leather just looks amazing. The Narada Pro is a really convenient size, it will easily fit into your pocket and weighs only 129g. The added features the firmware update provides are handy, but if you aren’t planning on using the RBA you may as well stick with the stock firmware and keep the lock function.
Flavour wasn’t bad from the included coils, the mesh was slightly better than the RBA with an Ni80 coil. Where the Narapa Pro excels is it’s hybrid AIO nature, it functions well as a pod for nicotine salts and a compact sub ohm AIO device. I think the Narada Pro will suit a range of people from new vapers to the more advanced vaper. More advanced vapers will enjoy the temperature control ability and the RBA option, where new vapers would like the simplicity and ease of operation.
- There’s an RBA option for those of us that like to build.
- By upgrading the firmware the Narada Pro also has variable voltage and temperature control.
- I like the side filling on the pods, it’s convenient and mess free.
- Overall I think the design is great, and the Narada Pro is a very convenient pocket size.
- I’m thoroughly impressed with the battery life and the generous 3.7ml capacity. The battery lasted as long as a tank full of nicotine salts.
- Upgrading the firmware removes the ability to lock the wattage setting. It’s a small inconvenience but the dial does turn easily.
- I’m not a huge fan of where the airflow is, I think it would be better located on the front where I’m less likely to accidentally cover it with my finger.
