Top 10 Vape Pods Review
Uwell Caliburn Starter Kit
If at all familiar with the Caliburn series, you know that the Caliburn devices offer some of the most compact, sleekest form factors in all of vaping. Uwell originally launched the Uwell Caliburn Pod Starter Kit, which delivered a 520mAh integrated rechargeable battery, an 11W output to provide stellar performance, a dual firing mechanism that has gained extraordinary popularity, a 2mL juice capacity, and Uwell Caliburn Replacement Pods with a 1.4ohm resistance to play a big role in the flavor and vapor output.
Later releasing a more improved upon version is the Uwell Caliburn G Pod Starter Kit, which boasts a 690mAh integrated rechargeable battery, up to 15W output, the same dual firing mechanism you loved about the original Caliburn, it has a 2mL juice capacity, and performance is greatly improved with a 0.8ohm Uwell Mesh Caliburn G Replacement Coil that fits perfectly into the Uwell Caliburn G Replacement Pods.
SMOK Novo Starter Kit
The SMOK Novo Starter Kit sent shockwaves throughout the industry as it was a vape pod system that was one of the first of its kind. The Novo set a pathway forward for competitors trying to follow. This spectacular device features a compact design, a 450mAh integrated rechargeable battery, and up to 16W to provide exceptional performance. The device is super convenient with a draw-activated firing mechanism, refillable and replaceable Novo Replacement Pods, which have a 2mL juice capacity, and addition features like the 8-second safety cutoff only adds to the reason behind this device becoming one of the most popular.
Always pushing to improve, SMOK released the SMOK Novo 2 Starter Kit, which maintained a compact design, yet gained more battery capacity (800mAh integrated rechargeable battery), and a whopping 25W output. It continues to offer a 2mL juice capacity, yet now it comes with a remarkable selection of SMOK Novo 2 Replacement Pods, which allow you to choose between a 1.0ohm Mesh pod, 1.4ohm MTL Pod, and a 1.4ohm Quartz Pod.
That brings us to the SMOK Novo X Starter Kit, a vape pod system that is similar in design, yet features a durable zinc alloy construction, a built-in 800mAh rechargeable battery, variable wattage up to 25W, single button operation, a 0.49” OLED display, and the addition of the SMOK Novo X Replacement Pods, which consists of the Novo X Meshed 0.8ohm Pod and the Novo X DC 0.8ohm MTLPod. Soon after, the SMOK Novo 3 Starter Kit was announced, and these high-performance coils were also compatible with the third generation of the famed Novo vape pod. The SMOK Novo 3 Starter Kit offers many of the same features, yet introduces new air-intake grooves on both sides for even better flavor and vapor.
SMOK Nord Starter Kit
The SMOK Nord Starter Kit is a must for our very large list of vape pods. The SMOK Nord is almost like the older brother of the Novo, boasting a 1100mAh battery capacity, 15W output, a firing button, a large 3mL juice capacity, and between the SMOK Nord and Replacement Pod and Coils Kit, vaping has never been more convenient.
The SMOK Nord 2 Starter Kit was an even greater addition to the market, as it raised the bar by providing a similar compact design, yet sports a 1500mAh integrated rechargeable battery, a 4.5mL juice capacity from the SMOK Nord 2 Replacement Pod, adjustable wattage, and a 0.69” OLED display that rests on the side of the device. The entire Nord series continued to develop with SMOK releasing both the SMOK Nord AIO 22 Starter Kit and the SMOK Nord AIO 19 Starter Kit, which delivers even greater battery life and more performance with the exception of its larger, more beefy size.
GeekVape Aegis Starter Kit
The GeekVape Aegis Series is one of the industry’s most iconic of them all. The Aegis series ranges from vape pods to full-blown mods, which is just one of the reasons why it has become so popular. If you are trying to go for the biggest and most powerful, the GeekVape Aegis Legend 200W Starter Kit and the GeekVape Aegis Mini 80W Starter Kit is where you should turn your attention. However, if you are wanting the same durability, quality, and performance in a smaller form factor, you may want to consider the GeekVape Aegis Boost Pod Starter Kit.
It is a compact vape pod that utilizes the AS chipset and crams in a built-in 1500mAh rechargeable battery. You can reach upwards of 40W with this device, and control it easily with a single firing button, two adjustment buttons, and a 0.42” OLED display. It has a GeekVape Aegis Boost Replacement Pod that offers a 3.7mL refillable pod capacity and uses GeekVape Aegis Boost Replacement Coils that consist of a 0.6ohm KA1 Mesh Coil, which provides extraordinary performance. The best part about the GeekVape Aegis Boost is its construction. It uses zinc alloy, leather, and silicone materials and has an IP67 rating, which means it is waterproof, shockproof, and corrosion resistant, allowing you to put this device through the tests and still come out on top.
SMOK RPM Starter Kit
The SMOK RPM Series is the collection that really transformed the way we looked at vape pod systems. These compact devices went from low wattage offerings that were all about convenience to compact devices that prioritized both convenience and performance. The series began with the SMOK RPM40 Starter Kit, which is rather small, yet offers a built-in 1500mAh battery capacity, a 40W output, a 0.96” TFT display, and it uses the SMOK RPM40 Replacement Pods with a 4.3mL juice capacity combined with SMOK RPM40 Replacement Coils to provide exceptional performance.
Always progressing its collections, SMOK developed the SMOK RPM80 Starter Kit, the SMOK RPM80 Pro Pod Starter Kit, and later the SMOK RPM80 2 Starter Kit. It is an evolution of the RPM series that just keeps getting better, offering a larger capacity, more battery life, more power, and keeping it all on the same level of maintenance as an ordinary vape pod. These devices continue to evolve and so do the coils. Each evolution of the RPM devices features its own SMOK RPM Pod and Coil Kit, ranging from SMOK RPM 2 Replacement Pods, SMOK RPM2 Replacement Coils, and up to the SMOK RPM80 Replacement Pods and coils.
Is that all there is to this remarkable collection of pod mods?. No, it isn’t. In fact, it eventually released the SMOK RPM160 Starter Kit that carries on the similar look of past RPM devices, yet it is much larger, features the intelligent IQ-160 chipset, delivers up to 160W, houses dual 18650 batteries, and has the same level of convenience that you would expect from any vape pod device. The RPM160 Pod Mod boasts a large firing button, two adjustment buttons, and a full protection suite as well.
Lost Vape Orion Starter Kit
The Lost Vape Orion series was one of the most memorable releases to hit the vape pod market. It went its own direction to create something new, unique, and performance-driven in a device that is incredibly small. Though very small, the Lost Vape Orion Starter Kit offers a built-in 950mAh rechargeable battery and comes equipped with the Evolv DNA Go Chipset, which allowed it to reach up to 40W of vaping power.
It is far more advanced than many devices on the market, sporting a replay mode functionality, three power outputs, a highly responsive firing button, and an adjustment button, and featuring the Lost Vape Orion Replacement Pod, which offered a top-fill design, adjustable airflow control, a Delrin drip tip, a 3mL juice capacity, and options of a built-in 0.25ohm coil or 0.5ohm coil. Transforming the way we vape, Lost Vape later released the Lost Vape Orion Plus, the Lost Vape Orion Q, and the Lost Vape Orion Q Pro. The Lost Vape Orion series continued to march in its own path, releasing products like the Lost Vape Orion Plus Replacement Pod and even the Lost Vape Orion Resin Drip Tip to customize the experience and make it your own.
Smoking Vapor MI-Pod Starter Kit
While there may not be a lot to this brand, it released one of the industry’s most prized vape pods. There are many reasons to share why this device has become so popular and why it remains to be one of the top 10 vape pods. The Smoking Vapor MI-Pod Starter Kit is an extremely small device with an innovative dual airflow design. Though tiny in size, it has a 950mAh rechargeable battery that is capable of providing amazing performance.
The device has MI-Pod Replacement Cartridges that have a 2mL juice capacity, a 1.0ohm resistance, and features a horizontal coil to deliver all the performance you could ask for from such a small vaporizer. The MI-Pod uses a draw-activated firing mechanism that activates as soon as you take a puff, which is incredibly convenient. Whether you are trying to be more discreet or you just need a device that is more convenient to use with features like an on and off button, it doesn’t get any better than the super-compact MI-Pod.
Aspire Breeze Starter Kit
Making a huge comeback in the world of vaping, Aspire went after the pod system market with full steam. It created the Aspire Breeze Starter Kit, which took on a different design that many people really took to. The device has a dual firing mechanism that allowed you to take advantage of an auto-draw feature or use its button for activation. The Aspire Breeze offered a built-in 650mAh rechargeable battery, a 2mL juice capacity, and featured the Breeze U-Tech Coil, which provided all of its performance capabilities.
Due to its success, the Aspire Breeze 2 Starter Kit was later launched, offering an even larger built-in 1000mAh rechargeable battery, a larger 3mL juice capacity using the Aspire Breeze 2 Replacement Pod, and many more features that simply made it better. On top of a single firing button, a bottom fill method, a plastic cap for its drip tip, and a sleek look, there is no reason why you wouldn’t want the improved upon Aspire Breeze 2. What’s most impressive about the new version of the Aspire Breeze Coil series is the U-Tech Coil Technology, which consists of a 0.6ohm Breeze U-Tech Coil and a 1.0ohm Breeze U-Tech Coil for salt nicotine.
Suorin Starter Kit
The Suorin Starter Kit cannot be explained with just one device. Suorin has created a whole collection of starter kits that all deliver incredible convenience and some of the best performances from such a small offering. The Suorin Air V2 Starter Kit is incredibly small, almost paper-thin, yet boasts a 2mL juicy capacity, a 400mAh rechargeable battery, 1.2ohm coils for incredible performance, and a draw-activated firing mechanism to take convenience to the next level.
There are many devices in the Suorin lineup that making vaping so enjoyable, such as the Suorin Air Plus Pod Kit, the Suorin Edge Starter Kit, the Suorin Drop Starter Kit, and Suorin Vagon Starter Kit that is incredible in its own unique way. We are huge fans of Suorin products, which is why we continue to stock the devices and their respected pods, such as the Suorin Air Replacement Cartridge, Suorin Drop Replacement Cartridge, and more.
SMOK Mico Starter Kit
If you haven’t noticed already, our list of the top 10 vape pods often use SMOK products, and that is because they are the most popular, offer some of the best performances, and truly set the bar for vaping. The SMOK Mico Starter Kit is yet another vape pod that offers something more than average, and that is exactly why it gained so much popularity.
The device stands a mere 56mm by 46mm by 5mm and has a zinc alloy construction. Despite its small size and incredible durability, SMOK focused heavily on cramming a built-in 700mAh rechargeable battery into the device. It still manages to output up to 26W and provide a 1.7mL juicy capacity from the SMOK Mico Replacement Pods. The pods come in a variety of options, ranging from the regular 1.0ohm pod, mesh 0.8ohm pod or the ceramic 1.4ohm pod. The device is small, powerful, performance-driven, and incredibly convenient to use.
