Refillable vape pods took off in popularity as a more cost effective and higher technology alternative to prefilled vape pods. Although you do have to fill vape pods, they are still very easy to use. Many models are autodraw and are very simple to fill. And although larger and more powerful vape pods are hitting the market, there are still plenty of devices that are small, discrete and simple as can be.
Refillable vape pods are designed to work in conjunction with nic salt ejuices. These are potent ejuices that have a smooth throat hit. For a complete overview of why nic salts are different than regular ejuice, check out our primer: Intro to Nic Salts. Nic salts are generally 50 percent vegetable glycerin (VG) and 50 percent propylene glycol (PG).
Nicotine salt is simply a different form of nicotine that has a lower pH level, which means it can be added at much higher level than most regular ejuices. This means that otherwise underpowered devices can provide a satisfying experience. Nic salts are not to be used with subohm atomizers.
Lower Nicotine Ejuices
But what if you want to enjoy the convenience of a refillable vape pod kit but have no need for the potency of nic salt ejuices? Most nic salt makes offer two strengths, a 5 percent and either a 3.5 or 5.0 percent. Cuttwood E-Juice only offers a 3.5 percent strength but they are the exception.
The fact is, although nic salts are a newish innovation there is really nothing new under the sun. Vapers had long embraced mouth to lung vaping and authentic throat hits. The vape pod is little more than a new derivation of the classic ecig, just with non-standardized threading so you have to purchase proprietary pods and coils.
As low-wattage, mouth to lung devices, many vape pod kits work extremely well with high PG eliquids, such as the Wow and Premium Ejuices.
Road to Zero Nicotine
Vapor4Life’s goal has always been to help smokers switch to vaping and for vapers to gradually reduce their nicotine level with an eye on quitting. While it is possible to jump down a tier in nic strength with most salt nic ejuices, from 5 to 2.5 percent, there is no step lower than that.
Interestingly, there are actually more nic salt options with some disposable vapes. Disposable ecigs are the easiest way to vape. Simply open the packaging and puff. They are the true heir to prefilled vape pods as they are still available in the flavors that the majority of adult vapers prefer. The Zaero Disposable has four nicotine strengths: 0. 1.8, 3.0 and 5.0 percent.
But as impressive as this is, Wow and Premium Ejuices are available in even more nic options: 0, 0.4, 0.8, 1.1, 1.8, 2.4 and 3.6 percent. The top strength option is not that much weaker than a nic salt ejuice while the bottom four options are substantially lower. Vapor4Life carries other lower nicotine disposable vapes as well. Cali Bars are available in the full gamut of flavors in 2 percent nic strength and the most popular Puff Bar flavors are as well. Select flavors of ZPods come in four nic strengths. The reason Vapor4Life offers so many disposable brands because there is a great deal of overlap between the flavors. Even if your favorite mango is out of stock, we offer a half dozen great alternatives.
We offer this many options to make it easier to seamlessly identify a nic level that is not overly strong and it is no coincidence that we have found our long-term customers gradually reduce their nic levels.
So how do Wow and Premium ejuices work in a vape pod kit? Quite well it turns out, depending on the device. A smaller wicked device like the Suorin Air or Smok Novo is ideal, as high PG juices are not as thick. This is ejuice that is meant to be consumed in a mouth to lung device, and is not best appreciated in vape mods and in vape pods with larger cores like the Smok RPM40 and 80.
Anyone who is not familiar with high-PG ejuices will be impressed with the crystal clear flavor. Vegetable glycerin has a fair amount of intrinsic sweetness that can mute the purity of more complex flavors.
Wow and Premium Ejuices in a vape pod are especially well suited for tobacco ejuices. This is because they deliver an authentic throat hit that nic salts simply can’t match. The smoothness of nic salts may great if you need a 5 percent nic strength juice but if you tobacco ejuices, Wow and Premium eliquids are a much better option.
