Best Inhale-Activated Pod Kits

Best Inhale-Activated Pod Kits

Inhale Activation makes vaping instant use, the design allows the user to simply draw on the device to get it working without the need for any setup or button pressing. It's one of the major factors that have made disposable vapes so popular and it is now a staple in new refillable mouth-to-lung pod kits.

Equipped with inhale activation, refillable pod kits are user-friendly fill-and-go devices that are nearly indistinguishable from disposable vapes in terms of performance.

Along with a compact form factor, effortless refilling and perks like adjustable airflow, you have a beginner vape kit that is easy to use, much cheaper and produces far less waste.

It’s a no-brainer, if you are thinking about making the switch from smoking or you’re just tired of forking out on a new disposable every couple of days, refillable pod kits are the way to go.

1. ELFA Pod Kit by Elf Bar

We’ll start off with an incremental change that will save you money and produce less waste without compromising on enjoyment. The ELFA Pod Kit is made by leading brand Elf Bar and is a small step away from the disposable design, utilising replaceable prefilled pods that click into a rechargeable battery unit which is shaped exactly like an Elf Bar disposable.

The pods are prefilled with Elf Bar’s entire range of highly sought-after flavours with a few exciting additions exclusive to just this device to look forward to. They are blended with the same premium nic salts and available in 20mg (2%) strength. You get two 2ml pods per pack, each delivering up to 600 puffs per pod - so already you’re getting double the puffs for nearly half the price. Changing pods is easy, you just pull out the old one and click in a new pod and get puffing. Used pods can then be thrown into the recycling bin.

Within the soft touch shell is a 500mAh rechargeable battery that utilises fast Type-C charging, with the charging port located at the bottom of the device, and you get roughly 600 puffs per charge.

2. Caliburn G2 by Uwell

We couldn’t leave this one off the list - the Caliburn - the original design by Uwell was one of the first pod kits to hit the market back in 2019 and arguably set the standard for mouth-to-lung pod kits from then on. The latest iteration, the Caliburn G2, has a reputation as one of the best-performing pod kits on the market today.

A simple design that works, the Caliburn G2’s slimline chassis contains a 750mAh rechargeable battery and delivers a stable 18W of fixed power. The 2ml capacity pods use coils that you simply insert into the bottom of the pod and pull out when they need changing. The Pro-FOCS mesh design of the coils ensures a premium taste from your favourite bottle of nic salts. Refilling is easily achieved by removing the tapered mouthpiece for access to the filling port.

You get fully adjustable airflow that lets you customise your draw from tight to loose depending on your style. Just puff on the Caliburn G2 to activate it or press the fire button if you’d like more control of your vape.

3. Xros 3 Mini by Vaporesso

You get more versatility from the wide range of integrated coil pods offering you a tight MTL vape with the 1.0ohm pod, that will replicate the sensation of smoking, all the way to a very loose and airy 0.6ohm coil. The unique Corex Heating Tech of the Morph mesh coils delivers a superb flavour in a smooth and consistent vape.

The pods are SSS leak resistant and you just flip them around to adjust the airflow. When you need to top up, simply clip the comfortable mouthpiece off to gain access to the top-filling port.
