Looking at the Luxe PM40, I’m reminded of another very similar pod vape — the SMOK Nord 2. The resemblance is unmistakable and probably not an accident. Both devices sport the same shape and they’re nearly the same size too; the Luxe PM40 is just 1.5mm taller and 1.5mm deeper. Not a big difference.
In addition to their near identical size, the power button on the Luxe PM40 is similarly sized and positioned, the OLED screen is the same size and located on the side of the device, and the Luxe PM40 also features adjustable wattage up to 40W. Too much is the same as on the Nord 2 for it to be considered a coincidence. Vaporesso knew what device they were trying to beat when they made the Luxe PM40.
The Luxe PM40 has enough weight that it feels solid but it isn’t heavy. Vaporesso doesn’t list what materials it’s made out of so I can only guess, but the frame is likely made out of zinc-alloy and the panels are some sort of plastic.
The panels are very nice. I especially like the holographic “silver” panels on the unit that I received for this review. The panels reflect all of the colors in the rainbow when light hits them and it looks really stunning. These don’t seem to be stickers either and the panels have held up well during my two weeks of use.
The fire/power button is the only button on the Luxe PM40. It’s firm and very hard to press accidentally so I haven’t worried about throwing it in my pocket.
The OLED display is 0.69” in size and located on the side of the device. There’s no brightness adjustment but it’s bright enough as it is. Although it’s in black and white, it’s very crisp and legible and doesn’t look old-school and pixelated like other black and white displays.
