About Pod Vapes
Vape pod kits that boast small, compact designs have become increasingly popular among smokers looking for an effective alternative to traditional cigarettes. Many pod devices are designed for ease of use, making them an appealing option for the new generation of vapers, or simply new vapers who may not be quite ready to begin using standard mods and tanks.
Unlike other, more complex types of kits, vape pod systems are simple in that they do not include a vape tank but instead use a pod. In these pods, which may come pre-filled with e-liquid or might be refillable, a coil heats the e-liquid and turns it into vapour.
Despite being smaller than most other kits, pod vapes can still be considered technologically advanced devices in that they feature impressive battery life and incorporate intelligent features such as smart mode, auto modes, adjustable power, and much more.
With other ease of use features such as auto-draw, pod systems really are some of the best devices you can get your hands on if you're looking for usability. If you are looking for a vape kit that combines the convenience of an all-in-one kit with the ease of use of a disposable vape kit, look no further than our range of pod systems!
Pod Vape FAQs
As with any vape kit, it's essential to pick the right e-liquid to use with it. This is so you can get the best possible experience out of your device, as well as not cause any damage to your device. Generally, pod kits are lower powered devices which use high resistance coils. As such, it is best to use a 50/50 e-liquid. The 50/50 ratio of VG and PG creates a thinner vape liquid that is more easily heated up by the lower powered pod kits. These balanced e-liquids are also known for providing rich and complex flavours.
Nic salts are also a great option as they too have a 50/50 VG/PG ratio but use nicotine salt instead of freebase nicotine. This provides a much smoother throat hit at higher nicotine strength. For a more detailed breakdown, visit our blog about the differences between nic salts and freebase nicotine.
However, some pod kits are designed to deliver a sub-ohm vape experience too. In this case, it's best to use a high VG shortfill.
Open pod system
Open pod systems get their name from the refillable pods that they use. The pods are technically 'open', allowing vapers to refill the pods multiple times until the coil is burnt out. Pod kits that use an open pod system can also use replaceable coils, giving vapers a wider range of options. These coils are often available in different resistances allowing vapers to have more customisation with this type pod vape kit.
For example, a popular open system is the Uwell Caliburn G2 pod system which uses refillable Caliburn G/G2 pods. These pods also use the Caliburn G/G2 Replaceable Coils with three different resistances allowing vapers to better finetune their experience.
Closed pod system
Closed pod systems, on the other hand, use pre-filled pods that come in a particular flavour. These pods are very easy to install but cannot be opened or refilled. As a result, these pod vape kits are one of the easiest ways to use, requiring little to not maintenance. All the vaper has to concern themselves with is swapping out the pod once the e-liquid has run out.
A popular closed pop system is the Elf Bar Mate 500 which features a sleek, cylindrical design that feels really comfortable in the hand to use. This closed pod vape uses pre-filled Elf Bar Mate P1 pods that feature many of the most well-loved flavours from their Elf Bar 600 Disposable.
Pod kits and pod mods are two different types of vaping devices, but they share some key similarities. The main difference between pod kits and pod mods lies in their design, features, and functionality.
Pod kits are typically smaller and more compact than pod mods. They are designed to be simple and user-friendly, with fewer features and options. Pod mods, on the other hand, are often larger and more powerful, with advanced features like variable wattage and temperature control.
Pod kits are generally lower in power output, with most devices operating at around 10-20 watts. This makes them suitable for high nicotine e-liquids and MTL (Mouth to Lung) vaping. Pod mods, on the other hand, can have a power output range of up to 80 watts, making them better suited for sub-ohm vaping and high VG e-liquids.
Pod mods offer more customisability than pod kits. They often have adjustable airflow and variable wattage settings, which allows users to customise their vaping experience to their liking. Pod kits are more limited in terms of customisation options, but they are often easier to use for beginners.
Choosing the right e-liquid for your Pod Vape is crucial for an optimal vaping experience and to avoid any potential damage to your device. Pod Vapes, being lower-powered devices with high resistance coils, work best with a 50/50 e-liquid. This ratio of VG and PG creates a vape liquid that heats up easily in Pod Vapes, offering rich and complex flavors.
Nic salts, with a 50/50 VG/PG ratio, are also an excellent choice for Pod Vapes, providing a smoother throat hit at higher nicotine strengths. For sub-ohm Pod Vape experiences, a high VG shortfill is recommended.
OPEN POD SYSTEM: Open pod systems, such as the Uwell Caliburn G2, are named for their 'open' refillable pods. These Pod Vapes allow for multiple refills and replaceable coils, offering vapers more customization options.
CLOSED POD SYSTEM: Closed Pod Vapes like the Elf Bar Mate 500 use pre-filled pods in specific flavors. These are easy to install and require minimal maintenance, making them one of the most straightforward Pod Vapes to use.
