Why are pod-based devices becoming so popular?
Return to Vaping Blog

Vaping has come quite a long way through the years. What started out as a standard of small vaping pens has gradually ramped up into an influential industry—containing hundreds of choices for both the newbie and the tenured vaping connoisseur. We’ve followed changing trends from the first devices like Ego battery pens and rebuildable mechanical mods to an abundance of different sub-ohm tanks, coil configurations, box mods, RTA’s, squonk boxes, all-in-one devices… the list goes on. In recent years, however, there has been quite a hype around pod-based devices.


Some of you folks reading this may be fresh off of cigarettes and finding it hard to choose a device that suits your needs. For those of us who have been part of the vaping community since the beginning, it seems that every so often old favorites tend to make a comeback or get revamped with new technology. It’s not too far-fetched to use the same comparison when it comes to all the pod-based devices being released on the market. They’re fairly reminiscent of some of the first small devices that a lot of us started out with but have a modern style as an added bonus. Let’s take a look at why everyone is so hyped about pod-based vaping devices!


Similar to a cigarette, most pod-based devices have a tighter air flow and higher resistance coils, although a few newer devices include a sub-ohm coil option. The higher resistance combined with reduced airflow replicates the draw from a cigarette and creates that familiar “oomph” of a throat hit. These devices are not only great for beginners because of this, but a great choice for anyone who is looking for something a little simpler and more discreet. Because of their smaller size, pod-based devices have built-in rechargeable batteries, which means you don’t have to lug around extra batteries. They’re stealthy, easy to use, and the multitude of options popping up makes pod-based devices a great choice for everyone.
