Why are POD SYSTEMS so popular?
April 17th, 2018 10:09PM

Today we’re going to talk about Pod systems and why you should get one.

So, if you’re unsure what a pod system is, it’s essentially an extremely compact vape that uses vape pods rather than your conventional tank. Now, a tank and pod are essentially the same things, but with pod systems, they’re designed specifically for the device to give you an extremely compact setup. Pod systems have been on the market for quite a while now, but the reason why we’re seeing more and more hit the market is that we now have access to nicotine salts. Nicotine salts give you a much more satisfying mouth-to-lung or “cigarette style” vape as compared to its freebase counterpart. In my opinion, nicotine salts are one of the best things to hit the market as of lately. If you want to know more about nicotine salt, click here!

Pod systems are a great way to start vaping as there really isn’t too much you have to learn to get started. You just fill up your pod, insert it into the device and take a puff. Most pod systems are draw activated meaning you don't need to hold down a button for it to start vaping. You just start inhaling and the coil will automatically fire which is great if you’re making the switch from smoking. Now, these pod systems really don’t output a lot of vapour. They are meant as a nicotine delivery system rather than a cloud chucking machine. But, because they don’t output as much power, you’re going to be saving a lot of juice using a pod system. A 60ml bottle of e-juice could actually last you months in a pod system! 

Now, where pod systems tend to fall short on are the coils and versatility. When your coil burns out in your pod, there’s no way to replace it other than replacing the entire pod and pods are generally more expensive than regular coils for a tank. For example, the Suorin air cartridges run for 4.99 each. Whereas the nautilus 2 coils are $15 for a pack of 5. But the trade-off is that you’re not getting a setup as compact as a pod system. Also, if you wanted to upgrade your tank or device down the line, you’re kind of locked into a pod system as everything is proprietary. With a conventional setup, all the parts are, for the most part, interchangeable. You can get a new tank if you don't like the one you’re using, or a new mod if you need more power. With that being said, pod systems are amazing for an everyday vape to bring with you on the go. I usually leave my more advanced setups at the office or at home and use a pod system vape when I'm out and about. 

Also, pod system wicks are very small. Meaning that if you use a juice with a higher VG content, it might have a hard time keeping up which might result in a burnt hit. Pod systems shine with thinner e-liquids and luckily, we actually just dropped a new e-liquid line called Rocket pods. This line is made specifically for pod systems and devices that require a thinner juice. If you were interested in checking it out, i’ll leave some links in the description below. 

In short, pod systems are an extremely easy to use system that boasts a compact form factor and provides a vape extremely similar to a cigarette when used with nicotine salts. But with the small size, comes a smaller tank capacity with a built-in coil that can't be removed. Also, the replacement pods are generally more expensive than your usual coil, but this will vary from system to system. If you’re looking for a new, portable vape that lets you stealthily vape or a newcomer to the vaping industry, I’d highly recommend a pod system. But if you’re ideally looking for clouds and billows of vapour, I’d say skip out on them.
