Pod vapes have been unbelievably popular within the vaping community for the past several years, and there are plenty of good reasons for that. A major part of why pod systems are so popular is simply because they look so great; pod systems are easily the smallest and sleekest devices on the market today. What’s even more important is that, more than ever, pod systems feature the latest vaping technologies that manufacturers like Innokin have developed. Pod vapes are almost always the best vaping devices for beginners, and they’re also becoming increasingly popular among more experienced vapers.
In short, whether you’re shopping for your first vaping device or are looking to upgrade your existing device, there’s a good chance that you’re strongly considering a pod system. In this article, we’re going to help you through that process. With a huge number of pod systems on the market today for beginners and experts alike, how can you select the best pod vape for your needs? We’ll explain the things that you should know before you buy. First, though, let’s learn a bit more about why pod systems are so popular in the first place.
Getting Started: Why Should You Choose a Pod Vape?
Vape pod systems aren’t just the best types of vaping devices today because they’re small and stylish. They’re also the most user-friendly vaping devices on the market. With a pod system, you never have to worry about whether the different components of your vaping device are compatible with one another because a pod system only works with the pods and coils designed for it. There’s no need to worry about error messages like “Check Atomizer” and “Resistance Low” as can sometimes be the case with vape mods and sub-ohm tanks.
Pod systems are also extremely friendly for beginning vapers. It’s often much easier to fill a vape pod or replace its coil than it is to fill or replace the coil in a sub-ohm tank. There’s no need to worry about cross-threading when you connect the pod to the device because the pod simply drops in. Pod systems also typically have simplified interfaces and are very easy to use.
The last reason why vape pod systems are so great is that they’ve never stopped evolving to meet the needs of the vaping community. Pod vapes have been around for several years now, and there are some vapers who have been using pod systems for five years or more. When those people want to upgrade, there’s a good chance that they aren’t looking for vape mods – they’re looking for more powerful pod systems. Manufacturers like Innokin have kept up with the demands on the community by releasing a new generation of pod mods with greater capabilities than ever.
With that out of the way, let’s learn more about the things you should consider if you’re trying to find the best vape pod system for your needs.
How to Choose the Best Pod Vape for Beginners
Best Refillable Pod Vapes for Beginners:
If you’re a new vaper and are looking for your first pod vaping system, the first thing we can tell you is that you’re going to have the best possible experience with a refillable pod vape. There are hundreds of different e-liquid flavors in the world today, and most of those flavors are only available in bottled form; you can’t use them if you have a pod system with pre-filled pods. The only way to experience all of the different flavors that the vaping industry has to offer is with a refillable pod system. Here are some other tips that can help you choose the best pod vape for beginners.
Don’t Assume You Need the Most Expensive Pod Vape Kit
When you search for the best pod systems at your favorite local or online vape shop, one thing you’re going to notice is that vaping devices are available at a wide variety of different prices. As a consumer, you’ve probably trained yourself to assume that the most expensive products are usually the best. When you’re buying a vaping device, however, that isn’t necessarily the case. When you buy a more expensive device, you aren’t paying for higher quality so much as you are paying for more advanced features that are more costly to implement. It’s perfectly fine to buy a less expensive vaping device when you’re a beginner because the only features that you really need are simplicity and reliability.
Choose a Pod Vape with Adequate Battery Life for Your Needs
One of the greatest things about beginner-oriented pod systems is that they’re some of the sleekest vaping devices on the market. You can easily fit a small pod vape in your pocket, bringing it everywhere and taking it out as you need it. One thing to remember as you shop for your first vape, though, is that buying a smaller vaping device always means that you’ll get a smaller battery. Choose a device that’s well balanced between portability and battery life.
Consider a Pod System That Offers a More Cigarette-Like Experience
Addiction to cigarettes is an extremely complex thing. You don’t just smoke because you need the nicotine; you also smoke because you’re accustomed to the rituals, emotions and sensations of smoking. One of those sensations is the feeling of the cigarette’s soft filter in your mouth – something that you might not even notice until the sensation isn’t there anymore. That’s why we created the Innokin EQ FLTR, which uses a soft filter tip to mimic the authentic feeling of smoking a tobacco cigarette. If tactile sensations are important to you, we think you’ll love the EQ FLTR.
How to Choose the Best Pod Mod for Experienced Vapers
Best Pod Mods for Experienced Vapers:
If you’re shopping for a pod mod, the first thing you’ll need to do is decide in advance what level of complexity you’re willing to accept. Some pod mods – such as the Innokin Sceptre – offer superior performance compared to traditional pod systems while remaining very simple and easy to use. The Sceptre offers multiple coil options and has fully adjustable airflow, but you’ll find that the experience of using the device doesn’t differ significantly from the device you’re probably using now. The Innokin Sensis, on the other end of the spectrum, offers the benefits of a pod system in a device with all of the features you’d expect to see in a full-sized vape mod. Here are some other things to consider as you shop for the best pod mod for your needs.
Choose a Pod Mod with Replaceable Coils
When you’re ready to step up from a basic pod system to a pod mod, you’re ready for a device with replaceable atomizer coils. Using a pod system with a fully disposable pod isn’t the most economical way to vape because you have to discard the entire pod every time you want a new coil. Having the ability to replace the coil while keeping the pod can make vaping significantly less expensive for you. A pod mod with replaceable coils may also have multiple coil options available, which gives you some options for customizing your vaping experience.
Choose a Pod Mod with Adjustable Airflow or Power Levels
One of the benefits of owning a pod mod is that, by replacing the coil, you can often adjust your device for either mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung vaping. That’s perfect if you’ve found yourself gravitating more toward cloud chasing as you’ve gained experience as a vaper. The only way for a single pod system to give you a perfect experience for both inhaling styles, though, is if it allows you to adjust the airflow and/or the power level. If you’re ready for a pod system that’s capable of producing bigger clouds, you need a device that allows you to customize your vaping experience to your exact specifications. Look for a pod mod that offers adjustable airflow, variable power levels or both.
Consider a Pod Mod with Next-Generation Vaping Technology
Because pod systems are in such high demand these days, it has become increasingly common for Innokin and other vape manufacturers to ensure that their flagship pod systems feature all of their latest technical innovations. The Innokin Sensis is the perfect example of this trend. Innokin is the first company in the vaping industry to use alternating current power delivery technology rather than the traditional direct current technology. The Sensis delivers power as a continuous waveform that you can adjust to meet your exact specifications for flavor and vapor production. We call this feature F0. By delivering power more accurately and providing a more stable heating environment, F0 unlocks the flavor potential of your vape juice and can also help to extend coil longevity. The Sensis also features an entirely new vaping mode – Coil+ – that automatically delivers a low, brief current to your coil after each puff to prime the wick for the next puff.
