What’s the best vape for beginners or if you want to quit smoking? It’s gotta be pod vapes! Like the JUUL, these mini vapes are small and simple to use. They’re the perfect starter kits. The thing is, now there’s an exhausting amount of these little vape devices on the market. It can be difficult to know which ones are worth purchasing. We’ve simplified it for you. Of the scores of pods vapes we’ve tested, this is our list of the best.

The Ruby has a powerful internal battery inside of its lightweight shell. If you’re looking for one with more airflow, this is the one.
The SMOK Infinix is like a refillable JUUL. It’s practically leak-free and has an automatic and very tight draw.

The tiny size and mess-free refill system make the Justfog Minifit reliable and super stealthy.
A pod vape is a mini vape based on a two-part system: a pod filled with vape juice that snaps into a small battery. They’re available in pre-filled or refillable designs. Some will have power buttons but often they’re automatic — meaning you just take a drag on them to make vapor.
Most pod vapes, also referred to as pod mods, vape pods, mini vapes or pod systems, were designed for smokers transitioning into vaping. Many smokers say they’re the best devices for quitting smoking, even more than the original vape pens.
Every pod system can be sorted into two categories: refillable and pre-filled. Each style comes with their own pros and cons. When purchasing a pod system, it ultimately comes down personal preference.
Pod systems offer many advantages over other vaping devices. The main ones being convenience and simplicity. They’re easy to use, making them more appealing to ex-smokers who don’t want to be bombarded with technical features.
There are other benefits to pod vaping that even experienced vapers can appreciate. For example, switching flavors is easier than before. Just pop in a different pod and go.
If you want to conserve e-juice, a pod vape is your best bet. They use less e-liquid in a day, which is more cost effective and harm reducing. Additional benefits include their MTL-style draw, not having to build coils and the other maintenance required for other vapes.
Pod systems are great for smokers but come with a few disadvantages. Due to their compact size, they have less battery capacity than a regular vape mod. Other downsides include a limited (but growing) flavor selection and a higher price tag.
That’s it. Enjoy your vape. To get the most longevity out of your pods, never vape them when they’re empty or you can run the risk of a burnt coil. Once the liquid is almost gone, refill it or dispose of it. (You can usually get about a week or two out of a refillable vape pod before needing to replace the coil… depending on how often you use them.)
Nicotine salt e-liquid — most commonly used for pod vapes, introduced and popularized by the JUUL vape.
Other e-liquids — Any e-liquid that has at least 50% PG content. Typically, 50/50 VG/PG ratios work best. Some pod vapes however will work well with higher VG based e-liquid.
