You are back and that makes me happy, so welcome to the Totally Wicked Vape podcast. Its Rachel here again, coming at you not so live from snowy Wigan. Today I am going to answer one of our most asked questions, Vape pods – what are they?
Vape pods are a type of e-cig kit. They were fairly unknown a few years ago, but over the past 12 months have rocketed in popularity and are now not only extremely common, but they are the choice of kit for a lot of vapers.
Primarily they are a great option for smokers who want to make the switch from traditional cigarettes to e-cigs or a regular vaper who wants a simple second vape. They tend to be designed in a way so they are simple to use and are perfect for vaping higher nicotine strengths and nic salts.
There are different types of vape pod and as with everything there are pros and cons to this style of vaping. Is a vape pod the right electronic cigarette for you? Let’s find out.
Ok, Types of vape pod
There are different types of vape pod. They all consist of a battery that has a pod on the top, the pod is where most of the differences are.
Pre-filled or closed vape pods
First up we have Pre-filled or closed vape pod
With this type of vape pod the cartridge is already filled with e-liquid, usually nicotine salts. You usually cannot refill the pod with e-liquid and the coil inside the pod in not replaceable. This means that when the liquid in the pod is empty or the coil stops working (whichever comes first) the whole cartridge needs replacing.
This type of vape pod is extremely low maintenance; they are essentially plug and play. There are no refills or coil changes, this is great option for smokers who are first transitioning to vaping as it is very easy to incorporate this type of pod into your daily routine.
The byte e-cig from Totally Wicked is a great example of a pre-filled closed system vape pod. Speaking of the byte, our technical director Liam Humberstone explains this in more detail for us.
Open Vape Pods
Next on the list, an open vape pod.
Open vape pods usually keep the same overall style of a closed system. They tend to have little to no settings to adjust and are still easy to maintain. The pods are manually refilled with e-liquid when it runs out and you can change the coil as well.
This type of vape pod is perfect for someone who wants a bit more freedom in their vaping experience or as a second e-cig for a vaper when they are out and about.
If you are looking for a great open vape pod, try the Skope Q from Totally Wicked of course. I am just shamlessly plugging left right and centre here. But in all seriousness, if you are looking for this type of pod, the Skope Q has been insanely popular with our customers.
