Best Pod Vapes 2024

Best Pod Vapes in 2024

Pod vapes, also known as open or closed pod systems, are portable and user-friendly vaping devices designed for those seeking a more convenient and discreet alternative to traditional e-cigarettes and bulkier vaporisers. Not to be confused with pod mods, which are generally bigger and offer more customisation, these devices typically comprise a small, compact battery and a disposable or refillable pod cartridge containing e-liquid. The pods often have a limited capacity and are easy to replace.

Pod vapes offer a smooth and satisfying vaping experience with user-friendly, straightforward functionality.

Open pod vapes typically work well with nicotine salts, providing a more potent nicotine and flavour hit than freebase e-liquids. They've gained popularity for their simplicity and suitability for both beginners and experienced vapers.

5 Best Pod Vape Brands at VAPO

In this post, we’ll highlight the best refillable pod vapes from the likes of GeekVape, UWELL, Vaporesso, and more.

The brands below are known for their performance, quality, vapour output and first-class flavour production. 

UWELL Caliburn G3 Pod Vape

Caliburn G3 Pod Vape


UWELL’s Caliburn G3 Pod Kit comes with a 20% improvement in performance compared to its predecessor, thanks to the generous 900mAh battery capacity.

The G3 is the first in the G series to offer 0.6ohm resistance, and with a maximum 25W output of adjustable power, this pod is perfect for RDL freebase users and open MTL nicotine salt users.

In another first for Caliburn’s G series, the G3 features an OLED display that allows users to fine-turn their vaping experience. Easily view performance details such as puff count, resistance and wattage. With its simple single button, select from 3 firing modes, including auto draw activation, trigger button lock, or dual action mode, allowing you to combine both.

Caliburn G3 Replacement Pods feature an all-new integrated coil with a side-fill and air-tight design for enhanced leak resistance with intense flavour production that’s second to none. Experience flavour and aroma like never before thanks to the FeCrAl Meshed CALIBURN G3 Integrated Coil Cartridge.
