What Is A Pod E-cigarette? And Should You Buy One?

Owner of this website and blogger, well I am now since I started this website! Here to help and advise as best I can. Been selling vape products for over 3 years now from my shop in County Durham, England. I like to think I have become a bit of an expert but like most experts I don't know it all, so always happy to learn more.

What Is Available Right Now?

As you may well be aware there are many variations of the e-cigarette. The e-cigarette most common typically is the pen style e-cigarette, from there you can get a huge amount of variations all the way up to 300Watt mod systems!! As you can see there is a miriad of variations and availability, so where do you start. well there are now more and more Pod systems coming onto the market. 

What Is A Pod System?

Actually Pod systems are nothing new, they have been around for a few years now. Typically a Pod system got it's name from the way you fill it with e-liquid. that is that you bought Pods filled with flavoured e-liquid and inserted them when you need to refill. This system is easy and mess free, in the sense that you do not have to mess around with bottles of e-liquid that can spill. A good example of this type of system is the Limitless Pulse Kit, this is the most well known of the traditional Pod systems. The only trouble with these types of devices was getting hold of the Pods isn't always easy and tend to be expensive to run, also people felt the flavour was not great. The upside was ease of use and a very discreet vape.

Now technology has moved on a little and a Pod system is now regarded as any e-cigarette device that has an enclosed tank for your e-liquid. So you now refill from a bottle but there is no removable tank, and the reservoir you fill is typically deep inside the body of the e-cigarette. A good example of this is the Suorin Drop Pod e-cigarette. Bottom line is don't be put off if someone is trying to sell you a Pod system, is is simply and e-cigarette designed for ease of use.

A lot of companies are now bringing out there own versions of this type of system, such as SMOK, Aspire and Suorin. More are being released all of the time and are particularly popular with new e-cigarette vapers. 

Why Are They Popular?

The main reason is ease of use. Also the new devices coming onto the market tend to have much better flavour return than the more traditional and older devices. In addition they are a discreet vape, not everyone wants to chuck huge clouds or is in a position to produce large clouds (office workers for example), so these enclosed devices are usually small and compact, combine that with ease of use (some you don't even need to press a button to vape, you simply suck and it activates automatically), they make a very good starter kit or a discreet vape for someone who has been using an e-cigarette for a while.

Should You Buy One?

Like everything it is entirely up to you to research what is right for you. These e-cigarettes are great for beginners looking to give up smoking cigarettes. They can also be used by experienced vapers who need a discreet vape for work. They have a wide appeal and there will only be more coming onto the market, and as flavour is increasing, they will only get more popular. Many vapers now use a Pod e-cigarette as there all day vape and a much more sophisticated device for recreational use, or just use the Aspire Breeze 2 for your all day vape, which is also a Pod System!!
