How to choose a pod system to vape?

by:Runfree     2023-03-22
2022/6/15 With so many Pod devices on the market today, choosing one can be tricky! If you've never tried a pod before, you'll want to know some of the pitfalls to be aware of when buying a pod.
Is long battery life a must? Are you mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung e-cigarettes? Do you want refillable pods? The following articles can help you with some helpful tips to consider when looking for a new pod device.
1. Mouth-to-lung (MTL) vs direct-to-lung (DTL)
Mouth-to-lung, or MTL vape, essentially means that you draw vapor into your mouth and then inhale it into your lungs. Most pods available are MTL vapes. This vapor delivery system is especially popular among smokers switching from cigarettes to vaping!
On the other hand, a direct-to-lung or DTL e-cigarette means you inhale the vapor directly into your lungs. Devices that offer this method of steam delivery are usually more powerful and produce larger clouds of steam!
Before choosing a pod, it's important to decide which method is best for you. If you have never tried vape before, then I recommend you start with the MTL pod vape. This style comes closest to imitating the suction of a cigarette, so you'll likely have a more successful transition!
2. Battery life
When choosing a pod device, it's also important to consider the device's battery life. Battery capacity on vaping devices is measured in mAh (milliamps per hour). As a rule of thumb, you generally want to avoid anything with a battery capacity below 400mAh.
In the real world, a battery capacity of about 400-600mAh can allow you to smoke ordinary electronic cigarettes for half a day. If you're looking for a pod that will last you all day, I recommend looking for one with a capacity of 1000+mAh.
This can quickly become frustrating if you have to constantly charge your Pod every few hours. If you're a smoker looking to switch to vaping, also consider that you don't want to drain your battery while you're out and about. It just makes it harder to resist buying a pack of cigarettes!
3. Refillable pods (open) vs. prefilled pods (closed)
Refillable pods, or open system pods, are exactly what the name suggests. A pod that allows you to refill your e-juice when you run out. On the other hand, prefilled or closed system pods contain a certain amount of e-liquid inside. When you're done smoking e-liquid in a closed pod, you simply take the pod out and throw it away.
The main benefit of buying refillable pods is saving money in the long run. You can keep using the pods until the coils and wicks inside stop delivering the goodness. For me, this is a must when choosing a pod. Not only will it save you money, but it has the added bonus of being able to try multiple flavors from the same pod.
4. Draw-activated and button-activated pod vapes
While some pod vapes activate when you puff or puff, others require you to press the trigger button to activate the vape. While this may seem like a small thing, it's worth considering which might be a better fit for you.
One of the greatest advantages of lottery-activated devices is the replication of the smoking experience. If you're switching from smoking to vaping, small details like this can really help you break the habit. Best of all, lottery-activated e-cigarettes mean you won't accidentally slip the device into your pocket.
On the other hand, bugs in plotting activation functions seem to be a common problem. The biggest problem appears to be a runaway vape that interferes with the sensor that activates the draw. Similar reports mention issues with sensitivity settings for these sensors. Some pod users have reported having to draw very hard on the device to activate the feature. Whatever you do, be sure to read the multiple reviews for this device before hitting the add to cart button.
5. Price
Before buying pods, you also need to carefully consider the price. You can probably find a really great pod for a reasonable price, but it's worth considering the cost of pod replacement.
Depending on the equipment you choose, you can change pods on a regular basis. This could add up quickly if replacing pods is expensive. One of the biggest benefits for me from switching from smoking to vaping is that I saved a lot of money. Knowing how much money I have in my sock drawer has really helped me stick to vaping.
It is really worth considering the above factors when choosing a pod device, especially if this is your first time vaping. You want to give yourself the best chance to break the habit and stick with vaping forever. If you want to buy an electronic cigarette pod system, please contact us.
