What is Pod System Vaping?

One of the most profound innovations in vaping has been the development of pod system vaping, which has allowed vapers to have a greater variety of options when it comes to devices and vaping styles. Before pod systems, the market primarily comprised of large tanks with glass enclosures and big coils- producing large puffs or “clouds” of vapor. This utilized a certain kind of e-Liquid and required large, high-powered battery cells. With pod systems, vapers can enjoy much smaller batteries, less fragile plastic enclosures for e-Liquid (aka cartridges, pods). Most pod systems are for mouth-to-lung inhale style which utilizes less e-juice and produces a smaller amount of vapor- also utilizing a different kind of e-liquid specific for mouth to lung vaping.


In today’s market, there is an abundance of pod systems available; they’re classified as open or closed, and there are advantages to each. Choosing the right pod system comes down to individual vaping preference. Whether you’re trying vaping to help you quit smoking, searching for an upgrade to a previous device, or just in the market for something new- END Vape & Smoke staff can demonstrate a variety of product options for your specific needs.

Closed Pod Systems may be the easiest, most hassle-free way to vape that has ever hit the market. These are vaping devices comprised of small batteries designed to work with their own proprietary pre-filled, disposable, non-refillable e-liquid cartridges. Just snap the pre-filled pod into the battery and vape away. We offer a variety of different closed systems at END, and we can explain the differences and advantages of each.


Why choose a closed system?

The hassles that come along with refilling tanks and replacing coils has been one of the biggest complaints/difficulties for vapers with all levels of experience. Refilling & maintaining tank setups requires a certain amount of skill, dexterity, and patience that can make vaping more difficult - or can even cause some customers to give up and go back to smoking. Closed systems completely circumvent those hassles, with simple plug-and-play ease of use.

A minor drawback of closed pod systems is that the user is limited to the e-liquid flavors and nicotine strengths offered with their specific pod system. However, some closed system brands offer a wide variety of flavors and multiple nicotine strength options. Pod systems are especially effective for those looking to replace traditional combustible tobacco so the ability to experiment with a wide variety of flavors may not be a priority. In fact, this drawback can be an advantage for those who like to find their favorite flavor and stick to the simplicity of a single product. Closed systems are almost exclusively designed with tobacco harm reduction in mind, so nicotine strengths in closed systems are appropriate for daily smokers looking to make the switch to vaping.

Open Pod Systems- explained and compared:

Open pod systems are similar in form and function to closed systems, the only difference is that the e-liquid cartridges are designed to be refilled with the vapers’ choice of e-liquids. This allows the user to choose any e-liquid they like. Using open systems requires a few extra steps compared to closed systems. Refilling open systems can sometimes be tedious, and though they are refillable, open pods do have lifespan and replacements will need to be purchased regularly for proper vaping. Open systems can be more cost-effective than closed systems, although replacement pods will need to be purchased for both kinds of setups.
