SMOK - Solus 2 Pod Kit

Once you're ready to move on from spending money on disposable vapes every week, it's time to invest in a pod kit. These are refillable, rechargeable vape kits that in the long run are much cheaper to run than repurchasing an entire device after 600 puffs.

The Solus 2 by SMOK is a buttonless device with a 2ml refillable pod that utilises a built-in 0.9ohm meshed coil. Once the coil has run its course, it's super easy to replace. As easy as unplugging the old pod and inserting a new one using a magnetic connection.

Auto-draw provides a familiar style draw to your old disposable vapes, with an MTL airflow that can be adjusted to RDTL by twisting the pod, giving you a chance to experiment with new vaping styles.

Pair it with a nicotine salt or 50/50 e-liquid from our huge range at Vaping.com to get the best flavour out of this vape. With its integrated 700mAh battery and fast Type-C charging port, you'll be happily vaping for days on end before replacing the pod.

With this vape kit, you can produce larger, fluffier clouds with a stable MTL airflow that provides a wonderfully rich flavour from your juice. Pair it with any kind of e-liquid you wish, simple and versatile! 

Also suitable for above-ohm vaping, this diverse pod kit is compatible with the 1.2ohm meshed pod so you can experiment between different styles and find your feet with ease. No need to adjust your power output, the device will automatically change its wattage based on the resistance of the pod you've inserted.

If keeping discreet is your style, choose the Ursa Nano by Lost Vape. Styled out with low-key colourways in a miniature casing, you can have it your way as you puff on the MTL device that produces stealthy clouds. 

Built-in is an 800mAh battery with a fast Type-C recharge port that gets you back up to speed in 30 minutes. Adjust your airflow with the sliding switch, giving you a diverse range of airflow opportunities including tight MTL, loose MTL, RDTL and everything in between!

Auto-draw is great for new vapers for its familiar-style draw and saves you from accidentally igniting the device in your pocket if you forgot to lock it. A buttonless design also makes for a smart-looking finish that's discreet and ready to be drawn at any time.

Cheap Vape Mods - Saving even more

Whether you're looking for a top-shelf system or something to get you by, every vaper wants to save as much as possible when buying a new vape mod. Here are some tips to help you get the best deal:

  • Take advantage of online deals: We love local vape shops, especially when they're close to work or home. But a vape shop is rarely the best place to go if you're looking to save money on a new mod. Most vape shops will charge a high markup on their devices, which means you can usually save money by going to an online retailer.
  • Shop savvy: You can pick up a bargain on your next vape if you're willing to shop around more. You can usually save money with all-in-one 'kit' deals. If you're not bothered about having the latest technology, you can try to save money by looking out for sales on older vape models.
  • Look for free shipping deals: Shipping can add a high extra cost to your online shopping, which is why it pays to look out for free shipping deals. Most suppliers will only give you free shipping if you pay over a certain amount, so it helps to put all of your equipment in one shopping basket.
  • Maintain your device carefully: One of the best ways to save money when vaping is to make your device last longer. You can only do this if you take care of your vape and perform all necessary maintenance in good time. Pay close attention to the manufacturer's instructions and don't be afraid to ask someone if you need help.
  • Avoiding cheap vape knockoffs
  • When you're shopping online, it's important you only buy from trustworthy suppliers with high-quality reviews. Very cheap 'knockoff' devices may seem tempting initially, but these products are typically low quality and can be dangerous.

A good deal is a good deal, but always be wary if something looks too good to be true.
