What are refillable vape pods?
Refillable (open) pods are compact cartridges that hold the e-liquid and coil for your pod kit device. The kit is ready for use once the pod is attached and e-liquid is added.
Unlike prefilled (closed) pods which must be disposed of once the e-liquid is depleted, you can refill a refillable pod multiple times before discarding - usually around 10 times.
Who are refillable vape pods suited to?
Refillable pods are the perfect choice for vapers looking for a low-maintenance, easy-to-use vape device that allows for e-liquid refills.
Refillable pods remove the hassle associated with more complicated mods and tanks. Additionally, they represent a cheaper and greener alternative to disposable vapes and prefilled pods because of their reusable nature.
How to use a refillable pod
To use your refillable pod, simply attach it to your pod kit device, fill it with e-liquid, let the liquid soak the coil for 5 minutes, and then you're good to go! If in doubt, refer to the manufacturer's instructions provided with your pod purchase.
Choosing the right e-liquid for your refillable pods
Open pods have limitations regarding the e-liquids they can handle. They have smaller coils and wattages than mod kits, making absorbing and heating thicker e-liquids more difficult.
Using the wrong e-liquid often results in burnt coils and dry hits. To avoid a dry hit, use thinner e-liquids with a higher PG content or a 50:50 PG:VG mixture for a more flavorful hit.
The decision on the strength and type of nicotine you prefer is entirely yours. If you are an ex-smoker, you might find that nic-salt e-liquids provide the closest experience to smoking a cigarette.
Replaceable coil pods
Some open pods come with an interchangeable coil, extending their lifespan even further. Before purchasing new coils, please check which are compatible, as they can differ from brand to brand.
Variable pod kits
Specific pod kits can take advantage of both refillable and prefilled pod ranges, providing users with greater flexibility.
For a regular refillable pod user, prefilled pods are ideal when travelling or on a night out where topping up with e-liquid might prove difficult. Click here to learn more about prefilled pods and shop our prefilled pod ranges.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between open and closed pods?
An open pod is a refillable pod that allows users to fill the pod with the e-liquid of their choice. Closed pods, however, cannot be opened and come prefilled with the manufacturer's own e-liquid.
How long do refillable pods last?
Refillable pods can last anywhere between 6 and 10 refills before needing to be replaced. For the average user, this is usually around a week to 10 days of use.
When does my e-liquid need to be replaced?
Apart from looking into the pod to see how much e-liquid remains, noticeable indications come from 'dry hits' - where the vapour has little to no flavour or a burnt taste - or when your e-liquid colour turns dark.
How do I refill my vape pod?
To refill your pod with e-liquid, disconnect it from your device and find the refill port by removing the mouthpiece or silicone plug. Slowly fill the pod with e-liquid and let it sit for at least 5 minutes before vaping to ensure optimal vapour production.
How much do refillable pods cost?
The cost of refillable pods varies based on the number of pods included in each pack and the coil quality. If you purchase a pack of three pods, you can expect to pay between £5-8, while four-packs typically range from £8-12. Buying just one or two pods is possible, but this option is generally less economical.
What e-liquid can refillable pods use?
Pods and pod vape kits usually work best with thinner e-liquids high in PG concentrations or with a 50:50 PG:VG blend. Thicker e-liquids can cause burnt coils and dry hits because the smaller coils and wattages in pod kits are not powerful enough to heat the e-liquid.
How do I clean my vape pod?
To clean your vape pod:
- Detach the pod from the device and remove the coil if possible.
- Fill a bowl with warm (not boiling) water and submerge the pod.
- Gently swish the pod in the water to loosen any residue. Repeat as needed.
- Once the residue no longer comes off, remove the pod from the water and let it dry for a few hours before using it again.
