What is a Pod System?

A pod system is a vape device that is small and portable,also called mouth-to-lung (MTL) devices since they are low-powered and can only be used with nicotine salts, pod systems are perhaps the most famous vape devices currently available. Perhaps you are familiar with the JUUL? The vape device that made headlines and brought vaping into the mainstream is not only famous but also happens to be a pod system. But why exactly are they called pod systems? The answer lies in the name.

Most of these devices use cartridges (or pods) that are used in tandem with the unit. In short, the device is composed of two parts, the pod and the system, the system being the body where the pod is inserted. The pod itself can come with vape juice already inside or it could be an empty pod where vape juice could be inserted. This brings us to the two kinds of pod systems that exist,closed pod systems and open pod systems.  

What is a Closed Pod System?

A closed pod system uses pods that are closed and already come with vape juice,meaning they are disposable. You can not re-use a closed pod since once they have been depleted of their vape juice they have to be thrown away. Usually closed pods are sold separately by the same manufacturer of the pod system, and the device can only be used with these closed pods. 

What is an Open Pod System? 

In contrast, an open pod system uses pods that come empty. With these you can buy the nicotine salts of your choosing. Usually, the manufacturer of the pod system sells nicotine salts that they make themselves, but you are constrained by these like you are with closed pods. In fact, you can buy any type of nicotine salt and use it with your open pods. The advantage of this is that you have a world of different vape juice formulas and flavors to explore. 

What is a Replacement Pod?

If you happen to use an open pod system with open pods, sooner or later you will need to buy replacement pods. This is because open pods need to be exchanged since they will stop working due to wear and tear. It becomes necessary to buy replacement open pods but this is only needed after prolonged use and after you have refilled them with different nicotine salts.
