The use of vaping pod mods has become a widespread trend. But what sets these devices apart, and how do they work? In the following, we’ll explore pod mods and discuss their various types, features, pros and cons. So, let’s dive in.
Definition of Pod Mod
Pod mods combine the best features of pod systems and vape mods. They are e-cigarettes that use a mouthpiece attached to the device via a magnet to deliver nicotine.
This compact vaping device has a disposable plastic pod that holds the e-liquid. The cartridge and coils can be removed or changed, allowing you to refill them with either freebase nicotine liquid or nicotine salts in the empty cartridges.
One detail worth mentioning is that pod mods are unique devices that only function with the particular type of pod designed for that device.
Pod Mod Components
Pod mods are small e-cigarette devices. They are usually composed of 4 parts.
- A replaceable and removable pod
- Indicator light
- USB charging port
- Main body
How Do Pod Mods Work?
Pod mods work similarly to conventional vapes, but pod mods use a pod holding the e-juice instead of a tank or atomizer. Once the vaping device is activated, the battery powers the coil, which causes the e-liquid to heat up and transform into vapour.
Since most pod mods aren’t activated with a firing button, you can draw from the mouthpiece and inhale your vapour.
Types of Pod Mods
There are two main pod mods types: the open pod system and the closed pod system.
Open pod system uses pods that are replaceable and removable to fill with any nicotine salt e-liquid, allowing you to have the freedom to choose your own favourite liquid to pair with the device.
A closed pod system means the pods have been pre-filled with e-liquid and cannot be refilled once used. Pods are disposed of after use and replaced with new ones.
Common Features of Pod Mods
There are various characteristics that may be present in pod mods, such as:
- Adjustable power settings that allow you to control the temperature of vapour, giving you a customized vaping experience.
- Replaceable coils allow you to change your vaping experience simply by installing a different coil.
- Compared to high-wattage box mods, the size is smaller, ideal for vapers who practice an on-the-go lifestyle.
- Better durability. Pod mods may often meet the IP67 standard for water and dust resistance and are designed to be shockproof.
Pros and Cons of Pod Mods
- Huge vapour clouds
With a replaceable coil, you can enjoy huge vapour clouds by replacing a larger atomizer coil.
- Friendly to beginners
Pod mods are designed to be ergonomic. They mimic how we hold ordinary cigarettes, making them comfortable to grip.
- Satisfying vaping experience
Pod mods not only provide vape juice but also nicotine salts juice. The nicotine content is higher. Vapers can enjoy a satisfying vaping experience.
- Some pod mods are non-refillable
Non-refillable pod mods mean you don’t have the right to choose your favourite e-liquid. This is frustrating.
- Small battery capacity
Since the design of pod mods is small and compact, the battery will not be very large. The pod mods may disappoint you if you want to vape all day without charging.
Now you know what a pod mod is and how it works, you can decide whether to purchase one according to the pros and cons of pod mods. It’s a good choice for people who like huge vapour clouds.
