The Best Pod System Vapes in 2021

Pod vapes are the top-selling vape devices in the world. Is it time for you to try a pod mod? Here’s our guide to them and our pick for the best 2021 pod vapes.





What Is a Pod Vape?


Also known as a pod system vape, a refillable pod vape, a vape pod or a pod mod, this is the simplest vape device to use.


The term “pod” refers to a small, transparent capsule that holds the vape juice. Instead of throwing away the pod when the juice runs out, you refill it with fresh juice and continue vaping.


How Does It Work?


When you look at a pod mod, you see it has two parts.

  1. The body: This holds the built-in battery and one or two LED indicator lights.
  2. The pod: This is a clear capsule that contains the coils, a filling hole and room for e-juice. Most pods hold 1.5 to 2 ml of juice. The pod is also the mouthpiece.

When you vape, the device heats the juice in the pod to create vapor.


How To Use a Pod Vape


To use the refillable pod vape, follow these steps.


  1. Charge the device on a USB port.
  2. Remove the pod and fill it with vape juice.
  3. Attach the pod to the battery. The pod has tiny batteries on the bottom that help it lock into place.
  4. If the pod vape has an on button, click it on. If it has an auto-draw function, simply start vaping to turn it on.
  5. To vape, place the mouthpiece in your mouth and inhale.
  6. When the pod runs out, add more juice. You can reuse the pod several times. If it develops a burned taste, replace it.

It’s that easy.


If you have a Vaporesso pod vape, it’s even easier with the patented Vaporesso push-to-fill feature. This lets you fill the pod without worrying about spills or leaking. It also eliminates the need for a separate silicone plug to seal the pod.


Advantages of a Refillable Pod Vape


Some vapers leave their big setups at home and take their pod vapes out on the town. Others use them as their daily vape systems. A refillable pod vape has many advantages.

  • Portable: Your device is small and easy to carry. It’s ideal for going out, traveling or stealth vaping.
  • Economical: Even with the cost of pods and juice, using a refillable vape pod is a very inexpensive way to vape.
  • Sustainable: Unlike the cheap disposable vape pods, a refillable pod system causes less waste and plastics in the environment.
  • Perfect for first-time vapers: A pod mod takes only minutes to learn how to use.
  • Versatile: You can use any type or flavor of e-juice you like. Some pod mod enthusiasts recommend using nicotine salt juices, but the choice is yours.
  • Ideal for former smokers: These devices make it easy to switch from smoking to vaping. Many create a mouth-to-lung vaping style that most former smokers prefer.
