Vape Pen (Mouth to lung)
Vape pens tend to provide a tighter draw and more intense throat hit to replicate the sensation of smoking. Usually paired with 50/50 and PG e-liquids from low to high nicotine strength, a vape pen is a good starting point for beginners and those looking to use vaping as a means to quitting smoking. Maintenance of the device usually just consists of replacing the coil and ensuring all connections are kept clean.
Pod vape kits are a very popular choice now for all types of vapers from beginners to vaping veterans. The main differences between pod kits and traditional vape pens/mods is that they come in various shapes and sizes and the replaceable part of the kit (the pod) is not generally interchangeable with other devices, unlike traditional tanks and clearomisers.
Open Pod System
This type of pod offers a level of customisation and flexibility beyond what is typically found in closed pod systems and appeals to beginners, ex-smokers and intermediate vapers. Unlike closed pod systems, open pod systems use refillable pods which gives you the freedom to use any flavours/strength you want along with different coil options to further tailor the device to your preferences.
Closed Pod System
Ideal for beginners or those seeking pure convenience, closed pod systems use pre-filled pods. Once the pod runs dry, you just pop in a new pre-filled pod. No messy re-filling or coil changes, which is ideal for beginners. Your choice of flavours and strengths are slightly more limited, but if it's ease of use you're after, then this is your ideal type of pod system.
Sub-ohm Mod/Pod (Direct to Lung)
Generally favoured by intermediate and advanced vapers, these high power devices use lower resistance coils with high VG low strength nicotine e-liquids. These combine to create bigger clouds of vapour, using a direct-to-lung vaping style. These devices tend to have more settings available which would probably overwhelm a beginner and not be entirely necessary.
