Open pod system vape kits are by far one of the most popular styles of device available, with small form factor, satisfying draw, and good flavour pod kits are a favorite among nicotine salt vapers.  They provide a more customizable and lower cost alternative to closed pod systems such as the STLTH or the notorious gas-station brand that rhymes with pool.

Because of the high nicotine concentration of nicotine salts they require low power and high resistance coils to still provide good flavour while vaporizing a small amount of E-Liquid, pod devices specialize in this utilizing low power outputs and high resistance coils these because of how well these devices pair with nic salts they are considered by some to be the quickest way to quit smoking.

Using an integrated tank and coil called a pod these devices are remarkably easy to use, only requiring the pod to be filled and left to soak for a few minutes before using.

Open Pod Kits provide many of the features that larger devices use however because of their size pod kits tend to have smaller batteries and juice capacity when compared to either a pen style kit or a full box mod. However since open pod kits utilize lower powered coils and salt nics this balances out the battery usage allowing for you to keep vaping for a few days between charges.

Open pod kits are not exclusively limited to nicotine salts and in fact some companies like Voopoo even produce coils designed for freebase e-liquids! With advances in battery technology manufacturers are able to squeeze more and more power out of a smaller package allowing for higher wattage outputs and a compact device that produces a large amount of vapor. Even coils not specifically designed for freebase e-liquid don’t usually have a problem vaporizing it however it will only deliver a small amount of nicotine due to the small volume of vapor.

Some popular brands of open pod system include Uwell, Smok, and Geekvape.
