What is a pod kit?

A pod kit, also known as a pod system, pod vape or pod mod, is a vape kit that has two main parts: a battery and a pod. Pod vape kits are made to be simple and user-friendly, particularly for those who are new to vaping. 

Since their conception, pod kits have evolved into two main types - pre-filled pod mods and refillable pod mods. 

Pre-filled pod mods

A pre-filled pod kit takes pods that are already filled with e-liquid by the manufacturer. These pod kits tend to have their own dedicated range of pods, available in a range of flavours. Popular examples include the JUUL, Vype ePen 3 and Aspire Gusto Mini. Pre-filled pods are not designed to be refilled.

Refillable pod mods

Refillable pod mods utilise the same design as pre-filled, with the exception that the pods are empty and can be filled with an e-liquid of your choice. This tends to be done by removing the mouthpiece or through a plastic plug on the side of the pod. Popular examples include the UWELL Caliburn, JustFog Minifit and SMOK Nord 2. Refillable pod mods either have disposable pods (that are thrown away once the coil has expired) or 'tank' style pods that have replaceable coils.
