What Is Pod Vaping?

Pod vaping is a pretty new concept; it is one of the latest vaping innovations in the world of vaping and many people are still unfamiliar with what it is. As more and more people discover it, though, it is rapidly growing in popularity as it is a convenient “middle ground” between basic e-cig cig-a-like devices and more complicated and powerful vape pens and mods.

What is a Pod Vaping System?

A pod vaping system is a sort-of miniature vape that comes with a cartridge that holds e-liquid. This cartridge, known as the vape pod, snaps tightly into a compact battery which powers the device and holds all its components such as the wick and coil.

Once the two components are snapped together, the device can be used just like an e-cig – you take a drag from it and exhale the vapour that it produces. Some pod systems also have button-powered batteries which are more often found on vape pens and box mods, meaning that you have to hold it down to take a drag.

How Do Pod Systems Work?

Pod systems use a “pod” instead of a tank or atomiser like you would find in other e-cigs and vapes; this pod performs the same function and works in the same way as a tank and atomiser do. It holds the e-liquid until it is soaked up by the wick where it is turned into inhalable vapour by the coil. The vapour then enters your mouth via the mouthpiece.

Aside from the pod setup, the rest of the device is virtually the same as a standard e-cig or vape. Because they are smaller, pod vapes generally have smaller batteries – typically with a capacity around the 300 mAh range – and produce less vapour than high-powered devices like box mods. This makes them better suited for casual users who aren’t too bothered about massive clouds and huge hits. While many pod vapes don't allow for any sort of customisation of the vaping experience, our Viggo Series pod vape provides vapers with variable voltage temperature control, putting the power to choose the voltage in the hands of the user. With a rechargeable 400 mAh battery, our Viggo pod system has more than enough power to last the average vaper multiple days when fully charged.

How Long Do Vape Pods Last?

It is hard to answer this question definitively – it is circumstantial and depends on your vaping habits.

Generally speaking, most people will find that their vape pods last them anywhere between three-to-five days with standard use. By standard use, we mean somebody who uses their vape about as often as a typical smoker – those who vape a few times each day as opposed to multiple times each hour. Those who vape constantly or multiple times each hour may find that their pods run out as quickly as one-to-two days, if not sooner.

Because pods typically contain between 1ml and 3ml of e-juice, they often run out of vape liquid faster than the large vape tanks like the 4.5ml tank that our Vibe Series is equipped with. However, due to their small size, which adds to their portability, many vapers find that it's easy to carry around a spare pod or two as a backup in case the pod they're using runs out of e-juice.

Which E-Liquids Do Pod Systems Use?

You can use any type of e-liquid with a pod system. That being said, it is nicotine salt e-liquid that works best with vape pods, and most closed system pods will come with this type of e-liquid in them.

Nicotine salt is a type of nicotine that forms naturally in the tobacco leaf and is generally thought to be the more stable form of nicotine. The specially formulated nic salts that we use here at Vaper Empire to fill our Viggo Series vape pods is designed to be vaporised at lower temperatures than normal nic salts.

Nicotine salt e-liquids, as a general rule of thumb, should not be used with high-powered or sub-ohm devices as the wattage in such devices is too high.
