This year we have seen the smaller vape device of a Pod Systems really make a come back. Vape devices have gone from small cig-a-likes to vape pens on to box mods and now they seem to be getting smaller again with the rise of the smart and stealth POD system.
As with anything, there are a number of pros and cons to POD devices. These simple little devices don’t deliver on cloud, but they do have huge potential and are a real leap up from the cig-a-likes.
PRO – PERFECT FOR STEALTH VAPING
Sometimes puffing out big clouds is great, particularly if you are into cloud chasing and competitions. However, sometimes there are occasions when you’ll probably need a stealthier vape. When you are at home watching the TV with family you might find that clouds filling the room isn’t ideal, or if you are in the street less cloud might be appreciated by those around you.
CON – SOME AREN’T REFILLABLE
This is a huge con for us as not only is it expensive to keep buying pods (such as the disposable JUUL ones) it is so wasteful. However, there are some on the market that you can refill, such as our Gem PODS which are just like JUUL but you are able to fill them with your own e-juice.
PRO – GREAT FOR BEGINNERS
One pro for the POD system is that they are great for people who are quitting smoking. They are a great way to replicate smoking, breathing the vape in mouth to lung. It is not only the action that makes it ideal for newbie vapers, it is also the small upfront cost, ease of use and minimal maintenance that draws in the soon to be ex-smoker.
CON – THE BATTERIES ARE SMALL
The small battery is what makes the POD device compact, however if you want something you can vape all day without charging then the POD system will probably not last you long enough. If you are having a POD system as your only device it might be wise to invest in a good portable charger.
PRO – GREAT FOR NIC SALTS
POD devices are fantastic for nic salts. You can get a super satisfying vape with a higher nicotine content than you would in an e-juice. This means that you probably wouldn’t need to vape as much, saving the battery life.
CON – HIGH VG DOESN’T WORK
You will find that the juices with a high VG content don’t perform as well in a POD device. Try to use a high PG e-juice in your POD system. Any of our beginner juices will be suitable for your POD device.
