What is a Closed Pod Vape?

A closed pod vape system uses a type of coil with pod vapess. This type of pod doesn’t allow you to remove the coils; you can only fill them with your choice of nic salts. Here's an overview of their key features:

  • No Coils: No longer have the mess of replacing the coil, which puts a lot of new users off.
  • Convenience: Since you don't change the coils, you just use it until it’s burnt out and replace the whole pod.
  • Leak-proof Design: Closed pods are often designed to be leak-proof, providing a cleaner and more hassle-free experience.
  • Consistency: With the design being closed, the flavour is at its best as each pod is designed to work at a set wattage.

Closed pod vapes are popular because they are simple and easy to use. They are a great option for beginners or anyone who wants a straightforward vaping experience.

What is a Pod Vape? 

A pod vape is a small, portable device for vaping. It has two main parts: the pod and the battery. The pod contains the e-liquid and the coil, while the battery provides the power needed to vaporise the e-liquid.

Vapers know pod vapes for their ease of use, which makes them ideal for beginners and those who prefer a hassle-free vaping experience. Pod vapes are better than regular e-cigarettes, easy to carry, and discreet, making them popular among users.

Pod Vapes have evolved from vape pen-style to slab-style designs over the years.

Pros & Cons of Pod Vapes


  • Portability: Modern pods are now so small and light that many people carry two. Even the owner of Vaping 101 has around four Oxva Xlim pods on him daily.
  • Ease of Use: Straightforward design which is simple to use and any user, even your granny, could use them.
  • Discreet: Smaller size and less vapour production make them ideal for discreet vaping.
  • Flavour: With the advancement in coil technology, the flavour from pods is now one of the best.
  • Variety: Wide range of flavours and nicotine strengths available in pre-filled and refillable pods.


  • Battery Life: While the devices are small, the battery life has to take a hit, with most pods being 1000mAh.
  • Vapour Production: Less vapour production, which may not satisfy cloud chasers.
  • Cost: While the cost of replacement pods is low, it costs a lot compared to rebuildables.
  • Nicotine Delivery: Mainly made for MTL vaping and low wattage vaping.

Different Types of Pod Vapes

Pod vapes, a popular style of vapes resembling a pod, come in various forms tailored to different user preferences and needs. To help you choose the right type, we will break down each category of pod vapes.

Starter Kits

Starter kits are perfect for beginners. They typically include everything you need to start vaping, including the device, pods, and sometimes even free e-liquid like we do with the Sxmini and Dopvo Ayce Pro pods to help people get started.

They are user-friendly, easy to set up, and designed to provide a satisfying vaping experience with minimal hassle. Normally, this design has no screen and no fire button to help with the transition from smoking to vaping.

Vape Pens

Vape pens have evolved over time, starting out as a simple slim pen design using clearomiser-style tanks and a very odd charging style where you would plug the top of the pen into a special charger made for the device. This was before USB charging became the standard in vaping.

This was the wild west of vaping where technology was moving at such a fast pace you would see a brand-new tank style each month until we got to where we are today. Now, vape pens come in two forms: the tube-style pen with a 510 connection for a tank on the top, and the second being a mix between a pod and a pen with a pod on top where you swap the coils and it’s magnetic, like the Flexus pod from Aspire.

Boro / Aio Mods

Boro mods are a unique type of pod vape known for their customisability. They use a boro tank, which is compatible with various rebuildable atomisers. These devices are for advanced users who enjoy tweaking their vape setup to achieve the perfect performance and flavour.

Over the past two years, boro mods have become a mainstay in the pod market mainly due to the price coming down a lot and tanks like the Shift making them very easy to use because you don't need to rebuild to use them now.

Pod Mods

Pod mods are a blend of pod systems and mod devices, offering the compact size of a pod with the power and features of a mod. They often have adjustable wattage and support for different coil types, making them versatile and suitable for both new and experienced vapers.

With pod mods, the biggest and best-selling one would be the Drag X/S by Voopoo, which started this trend of pods that would vape at higher wattage and do both MTL vaping and sub-ohm vaping.

Pod Systems

Pod systems are the simplest type of pod vapes, designed for ease of use and portability. They use pre-filled or refillable pods and are typically draw-activated, meaning you only need to inhale to start vaping. Pod systems are perfect for those who prefer a hassle-free and discreet vaping experience.

By understanding the differences between these types of pod vapes, you can make a more informed decision about which one suits your vaping style and preferences.

Best Nic Salts for Pod Vapes

Nic salts are the best vape juice for pods. They offer high nicotine levels and a smooth throat hit. Currently, the top nic salts to use are a disposable bar juice like Bar Juice 5000 and classic American nic salts like Sadboy. A classic American nic salt has made a comeback in Vaping 101.

  • Rainbow: A juicy assortment of mixed fruits and sugary notes.

SadBoy 10ml Nic Salts

An old-school style nic salt that has made a comeback this year and has now been ranked the best nic salt of 2024. Because it keeps its classic flavours while moving forward with modern vapers by making them.

Popular Flavours:
  • Butter Cookie: Shortbread biscuits with lemon zest.
  • Custard Cookie: Shortbread biscuits covered in warm vanilla custard.

Pairing these devices with the right nic salt can further enhance your vaping experience, offering smooth throat hits and satisfying flavours.

For those seeking a powerful, feature-rich pod system, the Elf Bar ELFX, Voopoo Argus G2, and Lost Vape Thelema Elite 40 stand out with their advanced technologies and robust performance. Meanwhile, devices like the Vaporesso Xros 4 and Dovpo Ayce Mini offer compact, easy-to-use options ideal for on-the-go vaping.

We did not include Uwell Caliburn because their G3 device did not meet expectations like the G2. We look forward to improvements with the G4 next year. This could include bringing back the popular Caliburn coils or releasing an updated version.

When it comes to nic salts, brands like Bar Juice, SadBoy, and Just Juice provide a wide range of flavours to satisfy every palate. Whether you prefer fruity, dessert, or classic tobacco flavours, these nic salts ensure a premium vaping experience.
