Pod kits are all-in-one electronic vaping devices that are super-compact, easy-to-use, and way more powerful than the disposable e-cigs. With batteries running in the range of 150mAh to 2000mAh, that's a whole lot of power.

Smokers that want to quit appreciate their simplistic design and satisfying method of delivering nicotine. They also enjoy the cigarette-like draw of smaller pod systems, and the fact that they can use nicotine salt juice to satisfy their cravings.

Experienced vapers find that they make great companions to their larger vaping setups, especially for vaping on the go.

POD SYSTEMS EXPLAINED...

Pod systems are extremely simple to use. You simply pop the coil into the pod, fill up the pod with your favourite e-liquid, Drop the pod into the slot of the device and away you go! The design is similar to the “bigger” vapes but works all the same. This hassle-free technology has made vaping more convenient and more friendly to your wallet but with the same performance.

Pod systems come in an open and closed format.

Open system allows the vaper to fill up the pod yourself and change the coils when they burn out.

POD SYSTEM FAQS?

Are Pod Systems Cheap?

Pod vapes are typically cheaper than other starter kits but replaceable vape pods are more expensive than coils. If cost is a deciding factor go for a pod system with replaceable coils.

Are Pod Systems Safe?

Pod vapes are regulated devices and there shouldn’t be any safety concerns if handled properly. But they do carry internal batteries so we suggest not charging them overnight. Also if you notice any auto-firing from your pod vape make sure you dispose of it.

What e-juice is best for refillable pod systems?

For pods with low power output nicotine salt is often the best option. But regular nicotine will also work fine. As for VG/PG ratio pod vapes used to work better with 50/50 juices but most pods nowadays will handle up to 70VG.

Is the hit of a pod vape similar to a cigarette?

It depends. Some pod vapes are made for a cigarette-like draw while others are supposed to be vaped directly to the lung. Size is usually a good indicator: in most cases the smaller the pod the more its hit will resemble that of a cigarette.

What pods are best for nic salts?

Smaller pods with lower power output are usually the best salt nic vapes. But some larger pod mods may still be good for lower strength salts (up to 20 mg). If unsure, use the search function at the top of the page; we always discuss nicotine salt performance in our pod reviews.

We hope this has helped you decide if pod systems are for you.
