Vape Mods and Pod Mods, how are they different?

Posted On March 16, 2019 by Mikin Soni

Vape Mods and Pod Mods

The evolution of vaping and vaping devices has come a long way. It is very evident today where we see there are different types of e-juices and vaping accessories that are being introduced in the market.

First, we saw cig-a-likes being famous which was then followed by vape pens. Then we saw the rise of vape mods and now pod mods have entered into the vaping scene and have made quite a fan following for itself!

If you've ever wondered what's the difference between vape mods and pod mods, trust me, you're not the first one to do that!

So, let's get into it!

What are Vape Mods?

Those bulky and bigger vaping devices that you see with all kinds of buttons to control different things like power, temperature, etc. are all vape mods.

They are very common today. These devices provide excellent vapour production and have evolved from vape pens. They are larger, advanced and more powerful version of vape pens.

These mechanical vape devices use e-liquids and are great for sub-ohm vaping. In case, you are wondering what sub-ohm vaping is, it is a vaping that is done on lower power or resistance.

What are Pod Mods?

Pod mods are e-cigs that use disposable or refillable pods. There is no tank or coil, instead, there are pods that are like cartridges that you can just insert into the device and you are good to go!

Their main purpose is ease of use and providing ultimate convenience to the vapers.

Usually, most of the pod mods facilitate mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping and they have atomizers 1.0 ohms. The same vaping style is used for smoking.

Also, pod mods use nicotine salts. Nicotine salts are processed from natural tobacco leaves. They are smoother on the throat and provide a stronger throat hit than e-liquids. This makes them an ideal choice for beginners since it will be able to satisfy their craving for nicotine and will be smoother on the throat!

Are they Different?

Now, we come to the main dilemma that vapers face. Are they different?

As we already discussed in the earlier section, they are different since their purpose is different. Let's look into how different they are?

Compatibility

When I say compatibility, I mean the compatibility of different parts of the device being interchangeably used among different devices of different brands.

When it comes to vape pods, all the parts of a vape mod are interchangeable and can be used among different brands of vaping devices.

This does not hold true for pod mods. Each pod is designed for a specific device. This is the reason why it cannot be used in any other vaping gadget.

They use different products for vaping

Vape mods use e-liquids whereas pod mods specifically use nicotine salts. A lot is said about the use of nicotine salts in recent years.

There are some obvious benefits of using both, the nicotine slats and e-liquids.

Vape mods are designed to provide sub-ohm vaping, which gives massive vape clouds to the vapers. Their e-liquids have a higher VG content in them. This component in the e-liquids is more viscous and facilitates thicker and dense vapours while vaping. But you may find such vapes harsher on your throat.

Pod mods, on the other hand, use nicotine salts that are less acidic. This means that they are smoother on your throat. They also have higher nicotine content than normal e-liquids. So they are the devices that facilitate higher nicotine content as well as smother throat hits. But, at the same time, they are not ideal for sub-ohm vaping.

They serve a different purpose

As discussed in the earlier point, both these devices are used for different purposes.

Vape mods are used by vapers who love to chase clouds. Various control features provided by the device allows the vapers to control and customize the settings of their vape to get maximum amounts of vapour.

Pod mods are ideal for those who are new to vaping and are trying to quit smoking. Higher nicotine content in them and smoother throat hit makes it a favourite choice among first-time-vapers.

Cost considerations

Pod mods are smaller, compact and portable compared to vape mods. Apart from this, they are quite cost-effective and are competitively priced.

Vape mods can be quite expensive since they have many features that allow the users to customize their vape. They are bulkier and bigger in size and have complex settings.

This is the reason why they are the first choice of vapers in their initial phase.

I hope now you can differentiate between the two types of devices. Which one suits you the best, is something that is very subjective and personal to you. So, it is advisable to make that decision after thoroughly researching about it.
