Why you should pick a Pod System over a Disposable?

Why you should pick a Pod System over a Disposable?

What is a pod system and how to use one?

Pod systems are essentially the ideal starter kit for someone looking to start vaping or quit smoking. They tend to come smaller in size and perfect for on the go. These are popular with the vaping market as it offers an alternative for ex smokers as it delivers a similar traditional smoking experience. Pod systems are made up of the pod(cartridge) and battery(the body). 

Each pod kit is fairly easy to use. Some systems include an internal coil which means you would need to replace the entire pod. With the pods where you can replace the coil we recommend removing the actual pod, choose your desired coil and prime it. Priming your coils is simple just squeeze a few drops of e-liquid into the wicking holes then down the top. Once this has been primed attach it into the pod and add 2ml e-liquid and let your device stand for approx 5 minutes to let the coil soak(this is so that each inhale has an intense flavour) now you can enjoy your new vape.

The only thing you need to worry about after is the coils. These will need to be changed according to how much you vape. Find out how often you should change your coil here.

Are disposable vapes safe?

If you’re a new vaper disposables wouldn’t be considered to be an ideal starter vape as disposables such as geek bars and elf bars contain 20mg nicotine, which is equivalent to approx 40 cigarettes. That’s a lot right?! The Ace of Vapez family highly recommends that a new vaper should start with a MTL (Mouth to lung) device with 10ml e-liquid with 0mg or 3mg nicotine unless if you’re transitioning from smoking then 12mg or 18mg would be recommended. 20mg could be a shock to the system and could possibly make you unwell. Please be cautious when choosing your first disposable.

Should you pick a pod system or disposable vape?

Disposable vapes may be very appealing for what they are but it is evident that pod systems have many more advantages in comparison. Purchasing a pod system is a one off payment then all you need to re-purchase is the coils and e-liquid. However 1 x 10ml bottle (£3.99) is equal to 5 disposables (£29.95). It’s all in the figures really.
