    So I have been vaping for about 5 years now. I keep hearing about these pods. I would like to get one to keep on me so I dont have to carry my box mod. I want one that I can use regular ejuice. I am not really into the whole salt ejuice

    I am needing some recommendations for regular ejuice driven pods. Thanks for the help.

    Don’t know if you vape MTL or DL, but I have to recommend the Aspire Breeze NXT. I am MTL and currently have the NXT, Caliburn, Frenzy and Minifit. 90% of the time I use the NXT, and the Minifit for ultra portable use. The others I use a little, mainly to go through the coils I’ve already bought for them.

    You will get many suggestions, but the bottom line is we are alll different, and thus have different needs and expectations. You will have to trial and error until you find what works for you.

    If you like a restricted DTL / open MTL, you might like the Podstick from Vaporesso.
    The .6Ω mesh coil pod delivers a very satisfying vape. I use 70% VG DIY @ 6mg/ml.
    You may need to bump your nic up to 6mg/ml, but the unit works just fine with freebase and or salt nic.

    I have a few Smok Nords, inexpensive, about $20 and $10 for a 5 pack of coils. If mtl 1.4 ohm coil, dtl .6 ohm coil.

    Based on how you vape now, I would say the Smok RPM 40 or VooPoo Vinci would be something similar but in pod/all in one form. I have the RPM 40 and it hits like a mod, well, up to 40 watts but still, not bad. It takes either the Nord coils or their new RPM coils. Tank holds a good amount of liquid and the battery is pretty good. So much power from such a small source, they did a good job.

    I do not have the Vinci yet but have one on order and it will be here next week. From what I am seeing review wise, is pretty much the same thing as the RPM 40 but with a form of air flow control.

    I bumped up my nic in pods to 6 strength from 3 in full sized MTL devices.

    If you do direct inhale a 9 or 12 may be best to make up for the lack of volume coming from the pod devices, which in general do not put out a large supply of vaper compared to full sized gear.

    Some pods with temp control can be ultra smooth so a throat hit sensation may seem lacking. Vaporesso pods for example limit temps so nice and cool it can leave the user baffled at first. "Did I get a hit?" type of thing. Others like Innokin EQ start out at a bit higher watts and with no temp control you get a 'stronger hit' sensation with the same amount of vaper.

    I was a Zenith tank user on low watt (9-12 watts) modular setups so the Vaporesso way was easy to adapt to. If you vape at say 20+ a temp controlled pod may seem lacking.

    A whole lot of vape shop folks who direct lung giant clouds really find the Sourin Air to their liking. It is good at mimicing a cigarette like draw and makes a great starter kit while you trial and error.

    JustFog Minifit. Tiny, good flavor and you can rebuild the coils -- check YouTube.

    The Caliburn is pretty good. Simple, easy, and works well.

    I agree... good list (I want the Aspire Breeze NXT myself)
    Many "pods" are actually AIO devices, they just look like "pods" If you were on a real tight budget, I'd say Frenzy because they are on sale for $15.

    In your opinion,is the rpm worth $12 more than the Nord?

    Pods?
    Well, i have used several of them, they are pretty interesting units, for salts are amazing, discrete and battery lasts a while, makes decent clouds and so is flavor.
    In personal opinion what i expect from a tiny interesting device like those is leakproofing, i dont want a little device pouring liquid in my pocket, sadly most of the pods i have tried leaks, so far Frenzy and Tesla's Tpod are the unique ones havent leaked at all, but the Frenzy is the only one has suited my needs point by point, amazing results with this babe! flavor, clouds, battery endurance and also feel on hands, is just perfect! lets talk about coil life? well, is long enough, and flavorful....

    this pod is also capable of using low ohm coils for freebase liquid, but also capable of running high ohm coils, perfectly for salts

    Regards,

    I know this wasn't directed at me but yeah, I think it's worth the extra money. It's adjustable and the flavor is pretty outstanding with the mesh coils. It's like a mod in small all in one form. Smok stepped up their game with this one. One con would be I get condensation and have to wipe the pod and connections down every once in a while. It's not bad leakage/condensation but still have to do that every once in a while.

    That said, the Vinci from Voopoo is even better with flavor and I have not had any condensation or leakage. Only had it (Vinci) since Monday but am impressed as all heck.

    yes ......
    for below reason :
    40 watt adjustable, nice and beautiful screen, when i feel my nord coil is going to died (dry hit), i just drop few watt so it can last me another hour/day till i reach home :) for coil change.
    1500 mah battery
    RBA - my still waiting for delivery(they having 7 day long holiday).

    I don't mind the coils, will only matter if they quit making them. If it ends up where everything is illegal and to get, will have to start building again. I just hate building coils, never were the prettiest but they would get the job done if needed. But would give me a reason to bust out one of my many mods which are collecting dust.

    I ordered a Fetch from Vaporl, have no idea if or when it will get here. I never ordered from them but used PayPal so if there is a problem, not to worried.

    Folks just wanted to say thank you for all the recommendations. I went ahead and bought the RPM 40 from Smok. I have to say I was shocked how powerful this thing really was.

    Thank you all for the great recommendations. I look forward to talking to you all again.
