What Are Vape Pods

As you may guess from the name, a vape ‘pod’ system is an e-cig that makes use of a ‘pod’ rather than a vape tank or atomiser. When push comes to shove, they do the same job: they hold the e-liquid until it is vapourised so that vapour can be delivered through the device’s mouthpiece. With vape pods, everything shy of the power source is contained within the pod. This includes e-liquid as well as the heating element. Attach a pod to a corresponding vape battery and you're ready to go.

While the biggest vape tanks can hold as much as 6.5ml or more, pods typically hold somewhere between 1ml to 3ml of e-juice. This less than subtle difference comes as a result of the fact that vape pods are designed to work with highly compact devices known as pod vapes. In terms of size, these devices fall somewhere between a cig-a-like and a vape pen, making them one of the more compact e-cigarette options for vapers today.

What Is A Pod Vape?

A pod vape, which is sometimes referred to as a pod device, is a type of electronic cigarette that works with vape pods. A pod vape consists of a battery, which attaches to a vape pod containing e-liquid. Together, the two form a pod system. At Vaper Empire, we sell a pod system known as the VIGGO Series, which takes pod vaping to the next level with variable voltage temperature control and Breathe Easy Draw-Activation.

Pod vapes set themselves apart from most other types of e-cigarettes through their use of nicotine salts. While high-powered, sub-ohm vapes are designed to work with e-liquids that contain freebase nicotine, pod vapes are designed to work with vape juices that contain nic salts. The big benefit here is two-fold. First, the nic salts are smoother, which makes the throat hit that much more pleasant. Second, they boost your nicotine absorption rate. As a result, pod vapes are great for former cigarette smokers who are making the switch.

Pod Vape Pros vs Cons

In comparison to traditional vaping devices, here are a few pod system pros:

  • Compact --- Pod systems are much more compact than vape mods, making them a more suitable option for vapers who don't want to consume much pocket space with their vaping device but still want ample vapour production.
  • Simple --- Pods are extremely easy to use thanks to their relatively simple designs. Many pod systems lack buttons, similar to most cig-a-likes, and instead make use of sensors that detect usage and produce vapour automatically.
  • Affordable --- Pod systems do vary in price, however, they are relatively affordable. For vapers on a budget, this is definitely a good thing.
  • Nic Salts --- Pod vapes work with nicotine salt e-liquids, which is something that many vapes don't do as only pod-style and low-wattage devices are designed to work with nic salt vape juice. This means superior absorption and improved throat hit for pod system users.

There are a few cons to consider, though:

  • Batteries --- Because the pod systems are a lot smaller than the batteries of box mods and other high-powered devices, their batteries are, too. If you're a heavy vaper that's looking for a piece of hardware that can be used all day without needing a recharge, a pod system might not be the right choice for you. Then again, our VIGGO Series pod vape is powered by a 400 mAh battery that's capable of providing the average vaper with more than enough power to make it through a day of use without a single recharge.
  • Clouds --- If you’re somebody that likes to produce thick vape clouds, the pod system, again, isn’t the ideal choice; vapour production is good, but it isn’t enough to create thick plumes of vapour like you might expect from a cloud chasing mod. However, our VIGGO Series is again a bit of an exception. While the VIGGO might not provide enough vapour to win a cloud chasing competition, it's more than capable of providing thick and potent vapour thanks to its variable voltage system that allows users to crank up the voltage.
  • Nicotine --- Pods work better with higher nicotine level e-liquids. This isn’t ideal if you’re wanting to use low-nicotine or nicotine-free e-liquids, though. Some pods will work fine with these, but they are typically more expensive. The VIGGO, yet again, serves as an exception. Not only are VIGGOpods affordable, but they're also available with and without nicotine and they work perfectly with the VIGGO device.

How Long Do Vape Pods Last?

That depends entirely on your own vaping habits. If you are somebody who only vapes casually a few times per day, then you will find that your vape pods last a lot longer than if you are a very heavy user who vapes more often throughout the day.

Although vape pods deliver a wide range of benefits over other vaping devices like cig-a-likes and vape pens, the trade-off is that these smaller devices simply hold less liquid than larger devices. If you are going to use a vape pod, this is a reality that you will have to accept and accommodate by carrying replacement e-liquid and/or pods. Fortunately, vape pods are typically compact, making it easy to carry a spare or two in a pocket or purse.

VIGGOpods contain 1.8ml of Vaper Empire premium e-juice. This is enough e-liquid to last the average vaper more than a day.
