Review: Khree UFO
The first thing most will notice about the Khree UFO is its distinctive shape. Fashioned into the form of a hockey puck or even a mirror compact, its difficult for the untrained eye to even recognize a Khree UFO in the wild as an electronic cigarette, making it a great candidate for a potential stealth vape.
The second most noteworthy feature is the inclusion of two mouthpieces. Featuring a non-protruding design in order to maintain the circular form factor, each of the Khree UFO’s two mouthpieces is a result of two discrete pods which can be used simultaneously, allowing you to easily switch over from one flavor to the next at will.
Using materials mostly comprised of plastic and PETG, the Khree is fairly lightweight, making it a great to-go option for on the go vapers. Despite the plastic construction, the Khree UFO manages to avoid feeling cheap or fragile, as all the pieces fit flush together without any noticeable wiggle or rattle when moving the device about.
The removable and refillable pods are connected to the body of the Khree UFO using a magnetic connector making for easy and quick removal and installation. A standard micro USB port can be found at the bottom of the Khree UFO for painless and easy charging via the included charger.
The Khree UFO’s pods use organic cotton and a nichrome coil pre-built inside. While kanthal is usually the more favored material to work with thanks to its more stable resistance, nichrome works just as well in this case thanks to its ability to quickly ramp up in temperature and instantly cool down as soon as you stop firing, preventing e-liquid from “boiling” inside the pod.
What this means for you is that the pods have some pretty good lasting power as the cotton stays cleaner and gunk-free for a longer period of time.
When it comes to actual flavor production, the Khree UFO does a bang-up job when stacked up to the competition. The use of organic cotton goes a long way here as flavors come through cleaner without any funny aftertaste and you’ll hardly feel that flavor production is muted despite the relatively lower power output of the Khree UFO. Airflow is also smooth and whistle-free which is important considering there’s no option to adjust the airflow levels on this device.
And last but not the least, the Khree UFO holds the unique title of being able to hold 2 discrete flavor pods at the same time, giving you the ability to choose at a moments notice which flavor you like. While vapers who are fans of RDA’s might disagree with this, bear in mind that dripping a new flavor on an RDA wont prevent you from tasting the previously dripped flavor, an issue that the Khree UFO doesn’t have since the e-liquids used are stored in 2 separate pods each with their own coil and wick system.
Aside from the option to vape 2 flavors at once, the Khree UFO doesn’t have much going for it in terms of vaping options. Like most pod-style devices, the Khree UFO doesn’t support advanced features such as variable wattage or temperature control, instead vaping on a fixed output dependent on the remaining battery life.
On the other hand, the pods used by the Khree UFO are refillable, meaning that you can use any type of e-liquid you want. Nicotine salt solutions, freebase nicotine e-liquids, and even nic-free options are all fair game to the Khree UFO, giving you a good amount of headroom when it comes to playing around with the strength of the device in terms of nicotine levels, not to mention also giving you the freedom to vape any flavor you desire.
Ease of Use
Just like most pod-style kits, the Khree UFO is geared for use by the absolute beginner, making it a breeze to set-up and maintain. The button-less air activated design of the device works reliably well in terms of recreating that familiar mouth-to-lung feeling derived from traditional tobacco cigarettes.
Each of the 3 pods included in the kit holds up to 2ml of e-liquid which is more than enough for a mouth-to-lung device so you won’t be beleaguered by the need to refill the pods often. When the need to refill does arise, the filling port located at the back end of each of the pods are easy enough to access and are large enough to accommodate a large variety of e-liquid bottles so compatibility shouldn’t be an issue.
With a thickness of 11mm and a total diameter spanning 65mm, the Khree UFO is fairly compact. While it doesn’t match the sheer tininess of other pod-style vapes such as the Pax Juul, the discreet form factor gives it a huge advantage in terms of stealthiness. Most non-vapers will be quick to dismiss the Khree UFO as a pocket mirror and rarely will the device be actually recognized as an electronic cigarette.
Battery life on the Khree UFO is excellent as well thanks to the integrated 600mAh battery, giving you almost triple the battery life of the original Pax Juul, enabling much longer vaping sessions that should last for you at least a whole day before requiring a recharge via the micro USB charging port.
If the unusual form factor is right up your alley in terms of aesthetics, it’s hard to find any reason to dislike the Khree UFO. The easy to use and maintain nature of the device is perfect for vapers who would rather not waste time fiddling with their vapes, not to mention the device is decently compact and lightweight making it a great option for frequent travelers or vapers who are always on the go.
Top all of that off with the Khree UFO’s ability to vape two flavors at once and its strong and clean vapor and flavor production and you’ve got a potential daily driver in your hands.
