Want to find out more about pod vapes? We go through the differences between closed pod vapes and open pod vapes, so you can understand the difference.
In the last few years, vaping has become a world of its own. A world of new terminology. There are bold, innovative and refreshing flavour combinations and more device options than most can keep up with.
Today, we are delving into pod vapes.
Specifically, we’re looking at the differences between open system and closed system pod vapes.
WHAT ARE POD VAPE DEVICES?
Pod vape devices are easy to use and can be used on-the-go. Pod vape devices provide a simple, satisfying vaping experience.
Pod vape devices generally consist of two parts - the main body which holds the battery, and a pod that holds the eLiquid. Pod vapes can be either open system or closed system. Each option has its own pros and cons that can impact your vaping experience.
WHAT IS AN OPEN SYSTEM POD VAPE?
An open pod system allows you to refill the device with eLiquid yourself. These are also referred to as refillable pod devices.
To refill your device you need to unscrew the clearomiser and remove the mouthpiece to open up the eLiquid tank. You then pour the eLiquid flavours of your choice into the tank; put the mouthpiece back on; re-screw the clearomiser and you’re good to go.
Open system devices tend to be used by vapers looking for a more bespoke vape and who understand the different parts of a vape and are happy to fill the eLiquid themselves.
FEATURES OF OPEN SYSTEM POD VAPES:
- You can refill them yourself
Refilling the pod yourself can give you access to more options when it comes to eLiquid brands that can be used with the device.
- They need some maintenance
Some open pod systems will need maintenance such as replacing the coil and cartridge over time. This can be tricky to do and adds an extra cost.
WHAT IS A CLOSED SYSTEM POD VAPE?
Closed system devices are known to be the easy-to-use option when it comes to pod vapes. They use flavour cartridges, also known as pods, that are pre-filled with an eLiquid flavour. These are super simple to operate, all you have to do is click your preferred flavour into your device and it’s ready to be used.
Each manufacturer has a different closed system device that comes with its own type of pods, so make sure you buy the right pods for your device.
FEATURES OF CLOSED SYSTEM POD VAPES:
- Simple and easy to use
Pop in a pod and you’re good to go! You don’t have to do any maintenance such as replacing tanks or coils.
- Convenience on the go
Prefilled pods are much easier to carry around with you than the bottles of eLiquid needed for open system pod vapes.
- They’re mess-free
Refillable pods can leak and can be difficult to refill leaving you with a mess, unlike closed system pods where the eLiquid is contained in the sealed pod.
