The Best Vape Pod Kits to Buy in 2022

Power of Analytics

Since their debut a few years ago, pod kits have become wildly popular with vapers. They essentially sounded the death knell for vape starter kits as the preferred device for people just venturing into vaping; ditto experienced vapers who desire a hassle-free device for on-the-go vaping.

One of the main reasons why pod systems really caught on was their compact build that allowed for portability not enjoyed before. The first pod systems were also ideal for what’s known as stealth vaping, which made it easy to vape in private spaces without making a big show with the clouds and all.

But crucially, the first pod devices also made use of nicotine salts (they actually introduced nicotine salts), which is a type of e-liquid that provides a decent punch and gets absorbed into the body faster. This made pod vapes particularly popular amongst smokers transitioning into vaping because nic salts provide an experience much similar to a combustible cigarette’s.

The pod device has witnessed an evolution in recent years, though. Originally, pod systems were only available in a closed pod style, meaning refills were not possible. Today, however, we have open pod systems which allow for this provision.

Not only that, but open pod devices are not limited to salt nics only: some can be refilled with regular e-liquids and/or even sub-ohm juices. The latter are known as pod mods.

Thus, vapers today have more choices than ever before when it comes to pod kits. And there are plenty.

Choosing the Best Pod Kit

Question is, which are the best vape pod kits worth investing in this year?

Well, it all depends on what you’re looking for.

Some simply want a hassle-free disposable device that doesn’t require any maintenance. Others want a pod kit that offers the flexibility of either MTL (mouth to lung) or DL (direct-lung) vaping.

There are those who desire the most portable device, while others fancy a pod system that doubles up as a sub-ohm device.

Battery life is a huge factor for some, while some users simply want a powerful device that much functions like a vape pen or mod but with the compactness and portability benefits of a pod device.

In short, vape pod kits are not equal, and you need to be clear on what you want in your ideal device before snapping up the first one that catches your eye.

Here are some top names worth throwing your money at in 2022.

Elfa Pod Kit by Elf Bar

Elf Bar made a triumphant entry into the industry in 2021 by releasing a series of disposable pod kits that took the vape world by storm.

One of the latest releases from their stable is the Elfa Pod Kit, which is now available as a prefilled pod kit.In typical Elf Bar fashion, the device is muted in appearance, with four colours to choose from. But it makes up for it where it matters most: performance.

Though miniature, the Elfa Pod Kit has few equals when it comes to flavour delivery, which is not at all surprising considering the brand is keen on replicating natural taste with its vape flavours while promoting ‘healthier’ vaping.

The Elfa Pod disposable has 15 delectable flavours to choose from, and its 550mAh battery can deliver up to 600 puffs before a recharge is needed.

Its small size makes it perfect for on-the-go vaping, and anyone who desires a hassle-free device will find this disposable a perfect companion. When you run through a pod, simply pull it out, plug in its replacement and voila.

VooPooDragbar Disposable (ZoVoo Collection)

VooPoo has emerged as one of the biggest names in the industry, and their releases especially in the pod category are legendary.

And now, the vape hardware behemoth has served the market another one. The new DRAGBAR series is a line of disposable pod kits based on a range of delectable fruit and ice blends that are sure to appeal to most taste buds.

Christened the ZoVooDragbar, the series carries three disposable pod kits of different sizes – 2.5ml, 3.5ml and 6.5ml which offer 6oo puffs, 1000 puffs and 2200 puffs respectively.

Equipped with a 400mAh battery, the ZoVooDragbars boast an unconventional but super appealing design with beautiful colours. There are 10 BOLD flavours to choose from, with 2ml prefilled pods carrying 20mg of nicotine salt e-liquid.

Mi-Pod 2.0 Kit

The Mi-Pod 2.0 kit carries on from where its predecessors left off by giving you a pod system that’s easy to use and manages to strike the fine balance between portability and high performance.

With a custom-made 1,250mAh battery, the Mi-Pod 2.0 makes use of mesh coils which enhance performance even more, making flavours pop and producing a decent amount of vapour.

The compact kit comes with a pair of 0.9-ohm pods that boast a capacity of 2ml, which is basically the equivalent of your vape pen’s tank. Looks can be deceiving with this one.

You can monitor your battery life through the four LED lights, and extras like the physical On/Off switch come in handy when you’re carrying it around.

UwellCaliburn Refillable Pod Kit

The UwellCaliburn is ideal for vapers who desire a refillable, reliable pod kit for everyday use that can be used with a variety of e-liquids.

It is designed strictly for MTL vaping, with 2ml refillable pods that give you control over flavour and nicotine strength. The pods themselves can be refilled a few times before necessitating replacement.

If the idea is to own a pod kit that offers you the functionalities of a mod but in the body of a pod kit, few fit that description better than the Sensis Pod Kit from Innokin.

It’s fitted with a powerful 3,000mAh battery that would put even some sub-ohm kits to shame. This makes the Sensis a pod mod proper, with a 3.1ml pod-style tank and two coils designed for sub-ohm vaping: a 0.25Ω pre-installed Sceptre S coil and a 0.65Ω Sceptre coil.

The lower resistance coil is tailored for direct-lung (DL) vaping and its higher-resistance counterpart works perfectly for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping. It’s a variable wattage pod kit that allows you to set the power at between 6 and 40W, with the pod mod boasting all the protections you would expect of a modern kit.
