A few years ago, everyone was talking about huge clouds and sub-ohm devices that could push hundreds of watts in a single fire. For many vapers, vaping is about big devices, multiple batteries and power – but that isn’t the goal for every vaper. In fact, there is a growing number of vapers who simply just want an easy and reliable vaping solution. They don’t care for huge clouds, they just want to satisfy their desire without having to put much effort in. For those who want a simple vaping device that delivers a fulfilling amount of nicotine with each pull without huge vapor production there’s a new option – the pod system; and the wide variety of new and awesome pod flavors that come along with them.
What is a Pod System?
Vaping pod systems are gaining steam and becoming much more popular today. They are a step above normal e-cigarettes, but not as complex or powerful as box mods. Pod systems are designed for ultimate simplicity – most of them don’t have screens, and some don’t even have firing buttons. For those that are just transitioning to vaping, these devices provide several benefits including:
- Ease of Use: Many pod system kits provide an all-in-one vaping solution. Just pop in a flavor pod and you’re ready to vape, right out of the box. Other vape systems like box mods require many more steps – assemble the device, prime the coil, insert the battery, fill the tank with juice and etc.
- Familiar Experience: Instead of firing buttons, many mods only require for you to take a pull on the device to activate the vapor. For those who previously smoked cigarettes, this is a more familiar experience which makes for a smoother transition into vaping.
- Stealth Vaping: Let’s face it, even when we’re proud of our vaping – sometimes we don’t want to blow huge clouds and haul around a humongous device. Pod systems give us the ability to draw a powerful hit from a compact device, satisfying our craving, without advertising our experience or drawing curiosity from those around us.
Vaping.com Staff Favorites: Awesome Pod Flavors
Some pod system kits come with refillable pods that can be filled with your favorite vape juice flavors. Other devices accept branded pre-filled pods that are made for that specific brand’s devices. However, most brands often only offer a limited number of pod flavor options – so what are the best ones? At Vaping, we tried every pre-filled pod flavor we can get our hands on from three top pod system manufacturers – PHIX, SMPO and BO. Here’s our staff favorites from each brand.
Pod Flavors for PHIX Devices

A cool melon treat, this flavor combines the iciness of menthol with the succulence of melon to create the perfect summer day vaping option.

A Final Word On Pod Flavors
The great news for pod system fans is that pod flavors have really come a long way. Sure, most pod systems offer refillable pods that you can fill with any vape juice; but that can take away from one of the biggest advantages of using a pod system – convenience and no-mess refills. Over the next few months, you’ll see many new pre-filled pod flavors hit the market, which will allow you to keep a nice varied collection of pods and have more options than ever! Vape on!
