Open vs. Closed Refillable Pods – Which works better for you?

by Aanya Alberto A geeky girl and Vape Enthusiast

Right from the innovation of vaping, people across the world has shown such huge response that a lot of manufacturers have come up with various types of devices. Choosing the right vaping device among so many choices can be paralyzing for you, if you do not have the understanding of functions and features of each type of device. If you have been a smoker, previously accustomed to simply buying a pack of cigarettes and smoking, then vaping initially could seem a daunting task. With all those flashing lights, customization, and advanced features, you would surely need some time to figure how everything works.

Being a recent switcher from smoking to vaping, you would certainly prefer a higher nicotine hit, so that the feeling of smoking still exists. This is the reason, vape juices with nicotine salts work best for people like you. As these vape juices are high in nicotine, only low wattage PODs can be used with those. PODs generally come with the open or closed system. Both the systems come with some benefits and drawbacks. Before buying your first vape device, you need to know something about these refillable pods.

The nicotine salt devices work with closed and open systems of pod mods or vape pods. These are actually electronic cigarettes that have the features of low wattage and high resistance features, which make the device ultraportable and perfect for handling. These refillable pods are actually starter kits having the following specifications:

  • High resistance (1.3-ohm coils)
  • Low wattage (16 watts)
  • Ultra-Portable and compact design
  • Either works automatically or on one button
  • Pods usually hold no more than 2 ml of vape juices
  • Cartridges can be refilled with vape juices


As nicotine salts juices are quite high in nicotine, only low wattage devices are recommended. The closed system pods are actually the ones with pre-filled cartridges. After you consume the e liquid, you have to dispose the cartridge and replace it with a new one. These disposable closed system PODs are available in a pack of 4 to 5. Some beginners prefer these pods, as there is no hassle of refilling the liquid and the maintenance is also nil, as no coil is needed to clean the tank. However, the downside is that you have a limited option of nicotine strength and flavor and the tighter draws can result in difficult nicotine hits.

This is the reason; new and existing vapers prefer refillable pods with open systems, where you can manually refill the salt juice, choosing varying flavors and nicotine strengths. You have the freedom to play with various flavors and nicotine strengths until you find the perfect one.
