Pod mod vaping is starting to look like the future of vaping. Think of pod vapes as being fairly similar to the way K-Cup coffee makers changed the way we drink coffee on a daily basis. The best part is, there is a pod for literally every pod vape appetite.
How does a pod vape work?
Pod vapes work by replacing the common tank that you’d traditionally put your vaping liquid or loose tobacco or medical marijuana in with a “pod” that is exchanged out whenever you get tired of what you’re vaping. This means a pod mod vape is not traditionally “refillable,” as we normally think of vapes. They come with both a battery and a cartridge. The battery is usually rechargeable or replaceable at a nominal charge, and the cartridges can be purchased separately in a wide variety of flavor options. Essentially, a pod vape is a tiny oven. The battery heats up the replaceable cartridges to “cook” whatever flavor option you’ve chosen, which then vaporizes it and delivers it to you with each inhale.
What should I look for in a pod vape?
Pod vapes, or “multimode” vapes, are becoming increasingly to find and the price is dropping down into a much more reasonable range (recently less than $100 on average). However, sometimes when trends like this pop up, you often get what you pay for and it can be a smart idea to invest in a slightly more expensive pod mod vape from a more well known brand like Firefly than one from a cheaper, less well known company. Generally speaking, you’ll want to keep an eye out for three factors : battery power, heating element, and mouthpiece. What you’ll look for in a battery is going to depend on your usage. If you’re a frequent user, you’ll want a longer, stronger battery that will last most of the day without needing to be charged. In terms of heating element, your pod vape needs to get hot and stay hot. A lukewarm heating element will not heat the cartridge up enough to create any benefit. However, be aware that too hot of a heating element will definitely drain your battery quicker. And, with the mouthpiece, make sure that it doesn’t have a taste of it own. You only want to taste the cartridge contents, not the pod vape plastic.
What are some of the better pod vapes?
A few of the better companies with pod mod vapes on the market right now are Firefly, Grenco and Kanger. The Firefly 2 often tops out as the best on the market, for both its quick heating and long battery life. The Grenco G Pen Elite runs slightly more expensive but is super cool with its digital format with easy to read battery life display. And, for a beginning pod vaper, the Kanger Topbox Mini Starter Kit is where it’s at. It offers a lot of options so you can figure out exactly what it is you like with pod mod vaping. There truly are options for everyone out there.
If you’re new to vaping or you’ve been vaping awhile, everyone is looking for the biggest and most cool thing. Pod mod vaping is definitely not a trend to slack on!
