What are Vape Pods? A Guide to Pod Systems


Vape pod systems have been gaining popularity over recent months. Even if you have not tried one I’m sure you have heard about vape pods. But, you might still be asking, “What is a pod system, and how is it different?”

A pod system is the middle ground between your starter e-cig and the more advanced vape mods. Vape pod systems allow you to enjoy fresh e-liquid without all the complications of the more advanced box mod systems, which can be intimidating and confusing for some new vapers.

Pod systems came from the idea that you could have a device with its own refills specific for that device. The refills are small containers of e-liquid that you pop into your device; eliminating the need for bottles of juice taking up space wherever you store all those necessary bottles.

There are several benefits to vape pods systems, like portability and ease of use. These new devices streamline the vaping experience, making it more user friendly for new vapers, while giving seasoned vapers a convenient on-the-go device.
