For the last few years, vaping was synonymous with vape mods, sub-ohm atomizers, and giant clouds. Lately, pod mods have become all the rage, but many people still don’t know the difference between pod mods and vape mods. There are actually quite a few differences between pod mods and vape mods. Pull up a chair and fire up a vape. We’re about to dig deeper. We reviewed the ten best pod systems on the market today. These refillable pod systems are great Juul alternatives, and allow you to use the nic salt ejuice of your choice. If you have any questions about what makes nic salt (also known as salt nic and nicotine salt) different than regular ejuice, make sure you check out our feature What is Salt Nic? Different E-Juice for Pod Mods and Vape Mods nicotine-salt-pod-mods Many vape mods are designed for sub-ohm vaping, so they are usually used with an e-liquid that has a higher vegetable glycerin (VG) content. Often used in a lower nicotine strength, high-VG juice is generally thicker than high-PG e-juice and produces fuller vape clouds. Pod mods, on the other hand, are best used with nicotine salt e-liquid. This juice has a higher concentration of nicotine and is available in higher nicotine strengths. It is highly advised not to use nic salts with a sub-ohm vape mod. Pod Mods Are More Ideal For Smokers pod-mods-smokers Since pod mods are used with nicotine salts, they're more ideal for someone who has just switched from smoking to vaping. They're also known to give a much better throat hit than standard vape mods. This, combined with an intense nic hit, might make you want to pick up the vape whenever you want a cigarette. The sleek design of most pod mods make them lightweight and easy to carry around. Since pod mods are designed to be easy to use, they're a great option for smokers who don't want to be overwhelmed by too many buttons to push or settings to program.  Vape mods are usually used by more advanced vapers who don't mind carrying around a device that's slightly larger. Vapers dig building their own coils and tinkering with the settings on vape mods to customize the way they vape and get that perfect hit (with the perfect clouds) every time.
