What are pod vapes?
Pod vapes are innovative, entry-level, ultraportable vaping mods that utilize open and closed-end vaporizers. Because pod vape devices are so new, they go by many different names. People often call them salt nic devices, nic salt pod mods, or vape pods system, and more. They are all essentially talking about the same thing. Another way to look at this is that it's a glorified vape pen. The industry went full circle in terms of vape devices. It first started with little ego vape pens, then it moved into big 200 watt box mods and other big vape mods, and now it's back to small ultra portable devices like pod vapes and pod devices.
An example of a pod vape is a JUUL device, Suorin drop, Suorin air, Smok Infinix, Smok Nord, Nautilus AIO, Lost Vape Orion, Mi-pod, Smok Novo, Vaporesso Renova, etc. They are sleek and discreet vape devices that are a closed system (pre-filled e-liquid) or open system (any e-liquid).
What are vape pods?
Vape pods are the clear plastic pod tanks that are for holding the salt nicotine e-juice. Vape pod systems can come as refillable pods or non-refillable pods. Pods connect to a power source or device, holding the liquid, coil, and cotton all inside. This allows the user a compact finish. The coils used in pods are small and have shorter use times than typical coils found in traditional vaping systems. The cotton inside does not need to be changed since everything is built in. Pods hold anywhere from 1 to 5+ mL of juice.
What is a pod system?
A pod system or pod kit is an all in one starter kit for vapers looking to vape salt nicotine. These are naturally smaller than the typical box mod, produce a lower wattage, and made for salt nicotine juices. (However, most pod devices can vape regular nicotine juices as well). Pod systems typically have replacement pods that are either refillable or disposable. Most devices are rechargeable, not relying on an external battery.
The differences between an open system and a closed system
The difference between an open system vape and a closed system vape is simply be described as whether or not you can choose your juice or not. Open systems allow the user to put in juice, whether that be in a tank, rebuildable atomizer, or pod. A closed system comes with juice prefilled in. This means that the pod vaping devices are disposable and are only meant for one-time use.
Closed systems are meant to use mtl hits (mouth to lung) since their is more nicotine. Think of closed systems as a true e-cigarette since salt nic more closely replicates the feeling of traditional cigs.
Closed systems usually do not let you swap out batteries as they usually have an internal battery. These can only be charged via USB while open systems allow further customization with batteries. Therefore, open system vapes have better battery life.
People that are looking for a wider variety and want to try different juice brands should look into open system pod starter kits. If you are only looking for a simple vaping experience, a closed system will be best suited for you.
What kind of vape juice do I put into my pod vape system?
A pod vape system will usually specify what juice is appropriate for your vape starter kit. Most pod systems are specifically designed to handle salt nicotine juices which contain a higher concentration of nicotine. However, most pod systems can accommodate regular vape juice that is used in other devices.
A pod vape kit works like any other tank and can technically house any e-juice. Most vapers opt for nic salt e-liquid which contains more nicotine than standard e-juice. Most Nic salts range from 25-50mg while standard juice contains 0-12mg. Nic salts are stronger because they are used on weaker vape mods. Pod vapes are discreet and produce less vapor. They consume juice at a much slower rate and hence contain more nicotine.
What is salt nicotine?
Salt nicotine derives from the tobacco plant. Nicotine salt differs from the traditional freebase nicotine that can be found in conventional vape juice. Freebase nicotine is nicotine in its purest form while nicotine salts are taken straight from the plant. Both, when added to vape juices, create a different type of flavor. Salt nicotine is known to be heavier on the "nicotine" punch because of the higher concentration. Salt nicotine juices require it to be vaped at a lower temperature and wattage in the order it to be vaped properly.
Vaping salt nicotine generally comes with more of a throat hit. Vapers who like salts prefer vaping less often. It is easier for them to consume nicotine and they can do so discreetly. Alternatively, vapers who like standard e-juice like vaping for the experience. They enjoy the stronger flavors and vapor production that comes with regular vaping.
