What Is A Pod Vape?
Firstly, PodVapes is the name of our business. Thanks to our customers, we’re becoming the #1 Pod Vape store in Europe. We love all things about pod vaping but you may be wondering what exactly is a pod vape?
Pod vapes are a newer closed vaping system which we believe is far better than the traditional open-system of vaping.
Pod vapes are pre-filled capsules of exactly the right amount of ingredients. Our pods use top quality genuine ingredients you can trust.
PROBLEMS WITH OLD-STYLE VAPING
Traditional vaping systems can be an ordeal for the new vaper. Open vaping systems have various controls to change the amount of vapor and air flow. There are coils that burn and batteries that need replacing.
Aside from that it’s rarer to find pre-mixed liquids now. With European initiatives and the TPD imposing stricter testing requirements for all products, it has become standard that e-liquids are sold in two bottles with the nicotine shot being loaded into nicotine-free larger bottles of flavoured e-liquid. The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) which sets EU regulations has imposed that nicotine shots are a maximum of 20mg per ml. These are sold in a maximum size of 10ml-sized childproof bottles. Once you have fought your way into both the flavoured liquid bottle and the nicotine shot there’s just the correct maths needed to get your desired concentration of nicotine. It can get complicated, and dangerous if you screw-up.
Stringent TPD rules mean that once every product must be tested, many vape companies choose to supply nicotine-free liquids with acetate, glycerol, and nicotine sold separately. Mixing the right amount of ingredients is essential, and it is not easy.
This is a messy and complicated business. Get it wrong, and you could be smoking far more nicotine than you ought to be or think you are. Concentrated nicotine is a highly toxic chemical and so the operation is also dangerous.
And despite the nicotine being sold in child-proof bottles, accidents have happened. Deaths have been reported so this is not a substance you want in the home if you have little ones.
Aside from that, regular vapes need refilling frequently. It’s messy and inconvenient to be doing this at work, while traveling, or while you are socializing.
HOW DO POD VAPES WORK?
Pod Vapes are better. Pod vapes use pre-filled pods containing special high quality vaping ingredients of vegetable glycerine, propylene glycol, nicotine salt and flavour additives in scientifically specified amounts.
You insert the pods into a battery-operated vaping device.
When air is drawn through the mouthpiece, the heating process is activated, turning the liquid into a vapor. It's really that simple. No pushing of buttons required or settings to adjust.
Like trying anything new, it may take a few attempts before you find your perfect puff.
We recommend you take small puffs to get a feel for the vapor before transitioning to inhalation.
Vaping provides a means to transport nicotine into the body. Nicotine is an addictive chemical - it stimulates and relaxes and is naturally found in tobacco as well as certain vegetables. Until now, current nicotine delivery systems have been limited to a handful of options.
Pod Vapes provide a superior and safer system than other options.
What is a Pod?
The pod is the cartridge that fits into the top of your pod vape device. One pod may seem small, but that's part of its benefit. One 0.7mL 5% nicotine pod contains the equivalent nicotine to a full 20 pack of cigarettes!
The pods at PodVapes all contain a nicotine salt formula, mixed under strict quality-controlled processes, and formulated to help satisfy your nicotine craving. Don’t worry, the word ‘salt’ is used to describe the type of nicotine – the vapor doesn’t taste salty!
BENEFITS OF PODS
Benefits of Pod Vapes over other vaping systems
Pod vapes are very different from the earlier forms of vaping. Old “classic” vaping uses an 'open system' direct-to-lung mechanism, where the user mixes up their own e-liquid before using in their device or mod.
This method can be complicated, messy, expensive, and potentially dangerous due to inconsistencies in quantities of different ingredients mixed. Further to this, the requirement to replace coils and other hardware components can be difficult for beginners and often requires tooling.
Pod vapes are a much better and much safer option. Pod vapes are a 'closed system'. The pods are pre-filled with four main ingredients: vegetable glycerine; propylene glycol; liquid nicotine (as a nicotine salt rather than the free-based nicotine which is used in the traditional vaping); and flavour additives.
The pre-filled pod is inserted into the vaping device. The device consists of two main elements,
1. A puff detection circuit and
2. A battery.
When the user takes a puff on the pod mouthpiece, it sends power to a coil in the pod, heating the e-liquid and turning it into vapor.
For anyone wanting to use vaping to quit smoking, pod vapes are a much simpler, safer, convenient and cost effective option.
