The vape world is constantly growing and innovating. We previously discussed salt nicotine being the next big thing in 2018, but what will be the next big thing in hardware? We�ve seen the growth in mods, they�re getting more powerful, atomizers are being designed to be vaped at over 100W but we think this is going to change in 2018.
Pod vaping is going to be the next big thing. Some people will still go for the more powerful hardware, but we�re going to see a shift into smaller devices that are sleek and compact. So what is pod vaping?
Pod vapes/kits are lightweight, compact looking devices. It has two components: a battery, and the e-juice pod. They are similar to e-cigarettes, but easier to use and with a longer durability. Pod vaping is ideal for smokers making the switch to vaping. Instead of having to learn how to use high wattage mods, coils, tanks, RDAs, etc., they can simply use a pod kit and just buy e-juice pods.
Even if you are into building, cloud and flavor chasing, it is ideal to have a pod kit handy for when you�re on the go.
There are some huge differences between the two. Pod vaping is meant to be easy, on-the-go, and inexpensive. Regular vaping is more difficult to learn, a bit expensive, and it�s more for flavor and cloud chasing opposed to just used to wean off nicotine.
As you can see, the pros and cons are fairly equal. It really just depends on what kind of vape experience you want. If you want something simple, and more of a nicotine hit then pod kits are for you. If you prefer trying different e-juice flavors, cloud chasing, building, then regular vaping is for you! Who says you have to limit yourself though? You can vape on a daily basis, and pod vape when you�re traveling or on the go.
There are various pod systems out in the vape market now. Brands are starting to manufacture their own pod systems because they see there increasing popularity.
Zoor is a closed system vape device, there is no firing button, it auto-powers upon inhaling. It has a 500 mAh Lithium Battery, so the battery life is a little better than the Juul pod system. It can be conveniently charged with a USB cable. It can only be used with Zoor pods, so you have limited flavors to choose from. Overall, the Zoor kit has a sleek and simple design with decent battery life at an affordable price.
JUUL is the most popular pod system due to its affordability, sleek design, and effectiveness. The JUUL pod has a temperature control feature that prevents dry hits, each hit will be filled with flavor and nicotine. Although the battery life isn�t great, 200 mAh, it charges fairly quickly. Their 0.7 mL pods are prefilled with 5% salt-based nicotine, but they only have five flavors.
The JUUL starter kit is affordable, and it comes with everything you need. The kit includes a rechargeable JUUL device, multi JUULpod 4-pack, USB charger, and 1 year device warranty.
The Atopack Dolphin is similar to the popular Atopack Penguin by Joyetech. The innovative JVIC system take a horizontal approach, and features a ceramic cradle for better flavor. A great thing about the kit is that it has a refillable cartridge, which can be filled without removing the coil head. The Atopack Dolphin kit comes with one atopack dolphin battery, cartridge, atopack coil (JVIX 1.2ohm and JVIC2 0.25ohm), USB cable for charging, warranty and warning card, and spare parts.
Suorin Air by Suorin an all-in-one device perfect for pod vaping. The Suorin Air is really competing against all pod vaping devices by making it slimmer than all the rest, it is as slim as an iPhone 7. There are no buttons or screens, but it does have an on/off switch and a battery life indicator light that is activated when the device is firing or charging. The kit comes with one Suorin Air battery, 1.2ohm cartridge, USB charging cable, user manual, and warning card.
The Aspire Gusto Mini features a similar design to regular vaping devices, but don�t let that fool you. The Aspire Gusto Mini features pre-filled pods, 900 mAh battery life, 17W output, and built in safety protection. Although, the pods are pre-filled and flavors are limited, it features 4.2mL pods so you get more e-juice in your pods than other devices. The Aspire Gusto is the perfect device if you are looking for something with a longer battery life, a higher wattage, and something more similar to vaping devices.
Pod vaping is something we encourage you to try in 2018. You don�t have to give up building, cloud and flavor chasing! Pod devices are inexpensive, and it�s a good thing to have just in case your device stops working unexpectedly, for on-the-go, or if you simply just want a stronger throat hit.
