BEST POD VAPE KITS TO BUY 2020
Vapers have high standards these days, we want great flavour payoff, long lasting battery life and plenty of options when it comes to design. Most of all though, vapers want convenience. On-the-go, all-in-one devices that are lightweight, discreet, refillable or disposable and still give sensational performance. We'll be using this post to give you the full lowdown on what Pod Mods are, why they're so popular, and which one is best for you.
WHAT ARE POD KITS AND HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT?
Pod kits are all-in-one electronic vaping devices that are super-compact, easy-to-use, and way more powerful than the disposable e-cigs (that kind of bombed because they just didn't deliver). Unlike standard vapes, which come with a fire button, most pod kits replicate the smoking experience- you draw from the mouthpiece. With batteries running in the range of 150mAh to 2000mAh, that's a whole lot of power. A slight nod to Nespresso here, because:
- Pre-filled or blank pods that you just "pop in"? Check
- Ready-prepped coils? Check
- Disposable? Check
You literally pop the pod into the battery slot and you're set. The device is small and so is the powerful battery running it. The tank, coil and wick setup might mimic bulkier mods, but the whole point is to do away with the fuss for a hassle-free experience that's big on performance and little on price.
With pod kids, you can choose from "open" or "closed" systems. In a nutshell, open systems allow the user to self-fill with e-liquids. Closed systems come ready-filled and are more hassle-free.

THE TOP 5 POD KITS (AND ALL THE DETAILS)
A list of top pod kit options just wouldn’t be complete without something from SMOK. SMOK offers a huge range of colours, specs and set-ups for different kinds of vapers and the Novo 2 is a wonderful choice to start pod mod vaping with. Powered by a long-lasting 800mAh battery, the Novo 2 can fire between 6 and 25 watts depending on charge remaining and your pod choice. Choose between two refillable pods with varying resistance levels - the 1.0ohm is great for standard 50:50 e-liquids while the 1.4ohm goes great with nic salts. Manual draw design means there are no buttons to press either - just fill up your pod, click it into place and inhale to vape.
- 800mAh battery for 6 - 25 watts fixed output
- LED battery indicator
- 8 second cutoff
- Safety features including low voltage and short circuit protection
Well loved by both our customers and staff is the Caliburn pod kit from Uwell. Slim, incredibly light-weight and with the option to fire manually or with inhale activation you can use it how you like. It’s powered by a 520mAh battery giving you plenty of vaping time and fires at a constant output of 11 watts. The pods hold 2ml of e-liquid and with their 1.4ohm resistance work well with 50:50 e-liquids but are especially ideal to use with nic salts. The Caliburn is a wonderful first choice for new vapers wanting a mouth to lung kit that’s simple and intuitive but also satisfying to use.
- 520mAh Battery
- Dual Fire Operation - Draw or Button Activated
- Mouth To Lung Inhale
- 2ml Refillable Pods with a 1.4ohm coil
For something a little different (and more advanced) you can’t go past the Target PM80 from Vaporesso. It features the convenience of refillable pods but also offers the versatility of variable wattage - and it’s made for Sub Ohm vaping. Powered by an internal 2000mAh battery, you get a whopping 80 watts maximum output from the Target PM80. A full colour TFT screen shows you what your output is and the AXON chipset fires in 0.001 seconds for an instant puff every time you hit the firing button. Keep the pod and replace the coil when it wears out for big clouds, a smooth inhale and great flavour - you can choose between a 0.2ohm or 0.3ohm resistance.

You can use this pocket friendly little kit for both mouth to lung and Sub Ohm vaping depending on the pod you select. Pick from either a 0.6ohm for higher VG liquids, or the 1.0ohm for 50:50s and nic salts. Bonus points with this kit are you can even adjust the airflow on the pods, enabling you to close it right down for a tight inhale or leave it wide open for a loose draw. Despite its diminutive size, the Vinci Air still packs in a 900mAh battery for up to 30 watts of power and takes just 90 minutes to recharge.
