What Are Pod Vaping Systems?

Learn about the latest innovation in vaping and how it’s helping millions of smokers kick the habit.

Are you ready to switch to vaping or looking for a way to spice up your current vaping experience? Pod vaping systems are the newest generation of small and easy-to-use e-cigarettes. Millions of people around the world have fallen in love with these convenient and compact devices, finding that vaping with pod systems is more satisfying — and more like real cigarettes — than other e-cigarettes on the market.

The Benefits of Pod Vaping Systems

Is a pod vaping system the right choice for you? Let’s examine their benefits and how they differ from other vapor products.

Easiest Way to Stop Smoking Cigarettes

No vaping device is more convenient than a pod vaping system. Simply drop in a pod and inhale to vape. The pods are clear, so you can always see how much e-liquid is left. When a pod is empty, pull it out and drop in a new one. People love the convenience of pod vaping systems; it’s no surprise that Juul — one of Crescent City Vape’s most popular pod products — is the fastest growing e-cigarette brand in the United States.

Huge E-Liquid Capacity and All-Day Battery Life

Depending on the pod system that you choose, you’ll get up to 2 ml of e-liquid storage per pod. That’s enough to last most people all day — and a pod vaping system delivers battery life to match. While a cigarette-shaped e-cigarette typically has a battery capacity of under 100 mAh, a pod vaping system usually has a battery capacity of 200 mAh or higher.

Nicotine Salt Liquids Deliver More Satisfaction

Nicotine is a salt in its natural form within the tobacco leaf. To extract nicotine from tobacco, companies use alkaline solvents — ammonia is popular — to increase the yield. The solvent changes the nicotine salt to freebase nicotine. Studies suggest, though, that using an acid to convert freebase nicotine back to a nicotine salt for e-liquid results in a product that the body can absorb more quickly. Research suggests that the body absorbs almost as much nicotine when vaping a nicotine salt e-liquid as it would absorb during smoking.

What does this information mean to you? It means that a pod vaping system mimics the experience and sensation of a real cigarette than any other type of vaping system. Using a pod vaping system is easy like smoking. It’s convenient like smoking, and it’s satisfying like smoking and can calm your cravings like nothing else. But, most importantly, like all e-cigarettes, pod systems do not burn tobacco leaves and do not produce smoke or tar.

What Are the Best Pod Vaping Systems?

At Crescent City Vape, we’ve tested and evaluated dozens of pod vaping products and carry only the very best of the best. Our current selection includes:

The JUUL Pod Vaping System

JUUL is the originator of all pod vaping systems. Every other pod system on the market is heavily inspired by it. For that reason, along with the fact that JUUL is now the most popular e-cigarette model in the United States, it deserves your strong consideration.

JUUL has eight flavors available, although the flavor lineup frequently changes with the introduction and removal of limited-edition e-liquid flavors. Each JUUL pod contains about 0.8 ml of e-liquid with a nicotine strength of 50 mg/ml. JUUL pods are not refillable, but replacement pods are very cost-effective. The 200 mAh battery lasts up to six hours on a full charge, and charging is accomplished via a slim magnetic adapter that you can store in one of your computer’s USB ports.

JUUL pioneered the design that most pod vaping systems now share; it looks remarkably like a USB memory stick. No one will ever mistake it for a tobacco cigarette, so it’s perfect for those who want to vape discreetly. Learn more about the JUUL pod vaping system here.

JUNO by Twelve Vapor

With 17 flavors available, JUNO has a wider selection of pre-filled pods than any other pod vaping system. Compared to JUUL, the JUNO has larger 1.6 ml pods. It also allows you to choose your nicotine strength. Nicotine levels of 18, 36 and 48 mg are available. With so much variety and the longest-lasting batter life (up to 16 hours on a single charge!), it’s no surprise that JUNO has become the most popular pod system we carry at Crescent City Vape. And because of the varying nicotine levels, JUNO may be a good choice if you want to decrease your nicotine intake after switching from smoking to vaping.

The JUNO battery has a capacity of 380 mAh — nearly double that of the Juul battery. Juno can also charge fully from a computer’s USB port in about 25 minutes thanks to the accelerated charging circuitry. Learn more about the JUNO pod vaping system here.

PHIX by MLV

PHIX competes with JUUL primarily on the basis of its larger battery and pods. PHIX has a higher-capacity battery at 280 mAh and uses larger 1.5 ml pods. Five flavors are available for the PHIX pod vaping system. The pods have a nicotine strength of 50mg, and the battery lasts up to 5 hours on a full charge. Learn more about the PHIX pod vaping system here.

Suorin Drop

While every other pod vaping system in this guide has a shape that somewhat resembles a USB stick, the Suorin Drop is something entirely different with its unique teardrop shape. With an array of colors available, the Suorin Drop is our most colorful pod vaping system. That’s not the most important feature of the Suorin Drop, though; it is the only pod vaping system on our list that you can fill yourself. Suorin doesn’t actually sell pre-filled pods for the Drop at all; the system is designed entirely for self-service. You just need to pair it with the nicotine salt liquid of your choosing, so the flavor possibilities are endless.

The gentle curves of the Suorin Drop allow it to fit comfortably in the hand. The body of the Drop holds a 300 mAh battery, and the pods hold 2.0 ml of e-liquid. With more nicotine salt e-liquids than ever available to purchase by the bottle, the Suorin Drop is a great device that can allow you to experiment with nicotine salts without being tied to a limited selection of flavors and nicotine strengths. Learn more about the Suorin Drop refillable pod system here.

We hope this guide to pod vaping systems is helpful on your journey to quit smoking cigarettes. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us or stop by any of our Crescent City Vape locations across New Orleans.
