While vaping pod systems are still growing in popularity, vapers of all levels have been increasingly adding them to their device collections. Not familiar with vape pod systems, or curious about what the best pod systems are? No worries - in this article, we’re going to cover everything you need to know!
What is a Pod System?
A vaping pod system is a device that is a step above a basic e-cigarette, but not as advanced as some of the larger full-sized personal vaporizer options. People who are new to vaping, and those who may be transitioning from smoking, may find personal vaporizer devices to be too large, too confusing, or too unfamiliar. However, they may find that a basic e-cigarette is too limited and doesn’t allow them enough control over their experience. For these people, vaping pod systems are the answer.
Pod systems are called “pod” systems because they accept pods - small refills of e-liquid made specifically for the device. Most of these pods come pre filled with a chosen flavor, although some newer models have refillable pods that allow you to use whatever juice flavor you desire. These refillable pod mods are a good middle step between cigalikes and advanced vape systems. Pod systems are all about simple vaping, stealth and compactness. Below we go through the best pod mods currently available with their pros, cons, and pricing. Take a look through and find the right pod device for your needs.
This refillable pod system is unlike any other, a teardrop shaped device with an ergonomic and compact design. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Suorin Drop is ideal for stealth vaping. The Drop is manufactured from a zinc alloy and finished with a bright colored silicone rubber casing. Suorin is designed to give a superior draw with it’s dual wicking atomizer, and they made it super simple to refill the pod. Built into the device is a 300 mAh battery, which can be fully recharged in only 45 minutes.

Customer Review: “This little vape is awesome. Seriously recommend to anyone trying to quit smoking, but wants something easier than all the flashy Vapes out right now. Keep it charged, and change the tank after about 5 refills. That’s it. No separate coil. Just a replaceable tank. Only slightly annoying part is the oil doesn’t have long to vaporize. So sometimes you taste it. I also do not use the Nicotine salt juices that are recommended. Not sure if that changes the consistency? I personally don’t need that high of nicotine (more of a social smoker).”Buy Suorin Air Pod System Here!
