Everything You Need to Know about Pods

Pods: Defining and Getting Familiar with a New Generation of E-cigarette

Vaping has become more and more popular in recent years, largely due to the many advantages it offers over traditional tobacco. Vaping devices have also evolved over time, offering vapers more convenient and customisable options. Among these options, puff cigarettes have become very popular, particularly due to their ease of use and the variety of flavours available.

However, it’s important to be aware of issues like e-cigarette leakage to ensure safe usage.

However, even if puffs are easy to use, it’s important to understand their various components, such as pods. X-Bar tells you all you need to know!


What Is a Pod?


A pod is a key component of pod mod electronic cigarettes. These devices are different from other types of electronic cigarettes because of their compact design and ease of use. A pod is actually a cartridge containing the vaping liquid and atomiser coil. The pod is fixed to the main device, also known as the puff, via a magnetic or snap-fit connection. Vaping a puff is a unique experience, combining convenience with variety.

What Is the Difference with a Conventional Electronic Cigarette?

The electronic cigarette is a device designed for daily use. It contains a battery and a refillable reservoir unique to the device. It can be filled with a variety of e-liquids, unlike a puff which is a disposable or replaceable device. Once a puff is empty, the prefilled pod is disposed of and can be replaced with a new pod of a different flavour. This makes choosing the right electronic cigarette puff crucial for your vaping experience.


The Different Types of Pods

Disposable Pods

Disposable pods are the most common and are available in a large variety of flavours, sizes, and nicotine concentrations. These pods are the perfect option for occasional vapers or those often on the move. They are prefilled and discarded once the vaping liquid has run out. Knowing how to travel with your electronic cigarette safely is important, especially for frequent travelers.

Refillable Pods

Refillable pods, on the other hand, are designed to be filled with vaping e-liquid. They are often used by more experienced vapers who prefer customised flavours and higher nicotine concentrations. They are therefore used on a more daily basis, and their contents are consumed via a refillable electronic cigarette. 


How Does a Pod Work?

The vapour is created by heating the e-liquid inside the pod at a high enough temperature to vaporise it. This vaporisation is achieved via a heating element which is soaked in e-liquid.

When you inhale from a pod, the air passes through the heating element, creating an air current that activates the heating element’s coil and heats it up. The generated heat vaporises the e-liquid, which is absorbed by the coil’s wick. You then inhale this vapour, creating a sensation of smoke similar to a traditional cigarette.


What Are the Advantages of This Type of Vaping?

An Accessible Price

Buying a puff and refills means real savings for occasional smokers. This inexpensive setup allows you to start vaping without investing in a device requiring multiple parts and components. 

Ease of Use

Pods are designed to be easy to replace, so there’s no need to handle small parts or maintain your electronic cigarette. When the e-liquid is empty, simply remove the pod and replace it with a new one. 

A Discrete Accessory

Puff cigarettes which need pods to function are also more discrete than conventional electronic cigarettes, making them more suited to use in public. They produce less vapour than electronic cigarettes and are thus less noticeable and less disruptive to non-vapers around you. 


Customise Your Pod for a Tailored Experience

Nicotine Concentration

When you smoke regularly, your nicotine needs are likely to be greater than if you smoked occasionally. That is why it is possible to choose the nicotine level that is right for you among a variety of choices. The level of nicotine in pods ranges from 0 mg/ml to 50 mg/ml. The most common is between 10 mg/ml and 20 mg/ml

If you are a new puff user, it is possible to start with a higher nicotine level and later reduce the dose. This can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and make it easier to transition to e-liquids with lower nicotine levels.
