What Is a Vape Pod?

A vape pod is a piece of vape hardware that can contain a flavored e-liquid, usually with nicotine and other ingredients. When vaporized, will release a cloud of vapor. It is a part of the all-in-one pod devices. There are prefilled pods for disposable e-cigarettes and empty refillable pods for refillable e-cigarettes. It usually has a mouthpiece and coil. And the refillable one will have an e-liquid refilled port! The prefilled one will come with an e-liquid inside.


The size and design of a vape pod depend on its purpose. The most common one is the refillable e-cigarette, e-cig, which is usually called cartomizers. They're made from either plastic or glass.

Another is the plastic or glass design style, called a clearomizer. It is also used in a mod-style device but has a tank-style design, allowing the vape pod to hold more e-liquid.

As technology advances and more products are being released on the market, a vape pod's design also changes. The main difference you can find nowadays is that some cartridges have built-in atomizers, which eliminates the need for a mod-style device, saving you time and money if you're getting into vaping.

How Do Vape Pods Work?

A pod is part of the vape pen that holds the e-liquid. It is a small container containing a flavored e-liquid, usually containing nicotine and other ingredients. The atomizer (tank) screws onto the top of the pod and heats up to vaporize it. Vape pods are designed to be filled with e-liquid, but they can also be filled with other substances, such as oils, depending on your needs.

A vape pod comes in all different shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your needs perfectly. Some pods are disposable, while others are refillable. You can buy new replacement pods for your pen or refillable vape pods from your device manufacturer.


What Are the Benefits of Vape Pods?

1. Convenience

A vape pod is the easiest way to get e-liquid into your vape pen. They're designed to work with various devices, so you can easily switch between different types of e-cigarettes. Many vapers find it convenient to use pod-based devices because they're easy to carry around and use. The pods fit easily into your pocket and are often small enough to fit into your hand.

2. Consistent Quality

Everyone has a different opinion about what tastes the best, but most people agree that the quality of e-liquid from a reputable manufacturer is consistent. You can trust that whatever flavor you try will taste similar to what you're used to when it's produced and packaged by the same company.

3. Availability

Vape pods are easy to find and purchase, making them convenient for anyone who wants to try vaping. They're also available in many different flavors, so you can find something that suits your tastes. You can find them at vape shops and online. They're not hard to come by.

What Are the Drawbacks of Vape Pods?

Here are some of the things to consider before you decide whether or not to buy a vape pod:

1. Chance of Defects

When you buy a vape pod, you're not only buying the e-liquid but also the pod itself. These are two separate products that are designed to work together, so there's always a chance that one of them will be defective.

If this happens, you'll need to either return the defective product or contact the manufacturer regarding the problem. The manufacturer can tell you which one of their products is causing the problem, and they can fix it if it's within their power.

2. Slight Learning Curve

If you're new to vaping, you might feel like a pro after a few days of use. However, it's possible that the learning curve can be a little bit steep. You might take longer to get used to your new device and e-liquid supply.

This can make it difficult to get through some of your daily tasks during the first month or two. It is also difficult to get a good understanding of how to use it. It's also important to understand that the same pods won't work for every device.

3. Maintenance

A vape pod needs to be maintained to work properly. If you're not using them, they tend to dry out and become clogged with e-liquid collected at the bottom of the tank. This can cause a lot of problems, and it can also affect the performance of your device.

In addition, it needs to be cleaned for the device to enhance its performance. This is done by removing the pod from the pen and rinsing it thoroughly with warm water. The e-liquid is then removed from the pod and discarded properly.

4. Limited Experience

Vape pens are easy to use and work with pre-filled pods. There aren't many things to go wrong, but you do have to be careful when setting up your device and using it, especially if you're new to vaping. Remember that different types of e-liquid can affect how your device works and performs.

Vape Pod VS Vape Cartridge

Maybe you have found that in different e-cigarette users, someone calls a vape pod, and some call it a vape cartridge. And confirmed that what are the differences between vape pods and vape cartridges.

Actually, originally the term vape pod was used interchangeably with vape cartridge. But nowadays, vape pods are more common-using as prefilled pods or refillable pods. But for Suorin vapes, we use both to express the same things interchangeably. You can call them Suorin pods, Suorin cartridges, Suorin vape pods, Suorin pod cartridges, Suorin replacement pods, Suorin refillable pods, and so on!

How to Open Suorin Vape Pods?

The first step in opening a Suorin vape pod is removing it from the device. This is done by pressing the device's button and pushing down the pod to remove it. You can also use a Suorin vape pen tool to help you remove the pod.

Once your Suorin vape pod has been removed from your device, you should be able to open it up and take a small magnet on the tip, which you can use to pick up the pod.

Once the pod cartridge is removed from your pen, you can remove it from its protective sleeve and open it up. You'll then see two small screws that hold the vape pod cartridge in place. You can unscrew these screws and remove the cartridge from its plastic case, revealing a dark-colored filling.

How to Refill Suorin pods?

The process of refilling e-liquid is simple. You'll need the following:

  • Prepare a bottle of e-liquid you want to refill.  You can ALSO prepare a syringe or a needle to help you fill it more easily!
  • Remove the pod cartridge from your Suorin Vape system and open the silicone plug.
  • Insert the needle into the e-liquid filling port at the bottom of your pod cartridge(if it is a bottom filling) and fill it to the e-liquid mini filling level at least.
  • Screw your atomizer back on and reattach your cartridge to your vape pod.

Please note that if it is the first filling of the pods, you need to wait 5-8 minutes to make sure the cotton is fully wet by e-liquid before you!
