One of the recent trends in vaping is pod mods! It’s also kind of fun to say. Pod mod. It just rolls off the tongue. What is a pod mod? It is an electronic cigarette that uses either disposable or refillable pods. A pod is essentially a cartridge designed for ease of use and convenience. Insert pod into the device and vape. It is easy. They come in a wide range of styles, shapes, and sizes.
Who are pod vapes for? Number one, they are designed for convenience and portability. They are not for cloud chasers. In fact, most pod style vapes are geared toward new vapers or as a convenient back-up vape for aficionados. For example, a 200 watt mod andcloud making vape tank are not always suitable for carrying in a work environment. Pod mods can fill that gap.
It is also very important to note that not all pod mods are the same. The market is currently being flooded by pod style vapes. There is a rush to capitalize on a trend. That can be good for a consumer in terms of competition, but it can also be bad as the market floods with junky products. What we need to do is sort through all of this. We need to separate the cream from the milk and make sure that you have the information you need to make an informed choice.
What Are Pod Mods?
Simply put, they are a vaping device where a pod with e-liquid is inserted into the body of the mod. There is no tank. There are no atomiser coils. Instead of a coil, you have the pod, or cartridge. The pod will either snap in place or be held in place by magnets.
- To use an analogy, pod mods are the Nespresso coffee makers of vaping. Pop in a pod and vape. That’s it.
- The defining characteristics of pod vapes are the convenience and ease of use.
Each pod is designed for a very specific device. Pod cartridges are not interchangeable. For example a Aegis Boost pod will not work in an Joyetech Penguin mod. Some pods come pre-filled and others are refillable with your favorite e-liquid. Usually, the best e-liquid for pod mods is Apollo 50/50 and salt blends.
The majority of pod mods are for MTL vaping with atomizers above 1.0 ohms. MTL stands for mouth to lung. That means you draw the vapor into your mouth and then inhale. This is the same inhalation style used when smoking. The convenience and familiarity make pod mods popular with beginners.
Pod Vape Pros And Cons
We will keep the pro and con list short and sweet. Ultimately, pod mods are pretty simple. Convenient but more expensive than using a mod with a refillable vape tank. Basically you are paying for ease of use and convenience.
- Easy to use
- Limited flavor choices
- Can be expensive
Pod style vapes do not produce as much vapor as an box mod and sub ohm tank. Pod mods are not designed for that. But the nicotine content in a pod tends to be higher than you get in VG e-liquids for cloud chasers. That means that even though there is less vapor you can still get a satisfying vape from a pod vape.
