    Well, I’m looking for a new pod system, but no idea which. I’ve tried the Juul, it’s ok at best. Tried the Juno, it tastes like sh*t. Tried the Stigs, pretty nice. Should I do a refillable maybe? Should I invest in something of higher quality? Any tips are appreciated.

    Well I won a Renova Zero refilable pod here on VU. Some say it lacks flavor but I really like it. It has 3 power settings and produces a fairly decent amount of vapor. It is well made, aluminum or zinc alloy. Something like that. It is very small. I can buy replacment pods at a local b&m, 2 for $7. I suggest you ask around about it. See what others think about it. It is for me and my limited exptetise on pods the best one for me personally. Peace and love.

    I tried a few and finally settled for the Aspire Nautilus AIO because it's refillable and has replaceable coils.


    With a refillable pod system you have the option of adding whichever flavor and/or nicotine level of salt nic eliquid that you want.

    I've been interested in the Smok Nord. All the reviews I've read are really positive.

    I got one and have been liking it. Its well made and the battery last all day. I haven't tried the mesh or ceramic yet. I've been using the 1.4Ω coil w/ 25mg salt nic Prop Blue Slushee.

    My exact same worry about it being a Smok product, have never owned one ever, but am considering a new pod system for stealth vaping and ease of use when busy and Nord is getting a lot of praise

    Same here - Reviewed a Renova Zero. Then I picked up 4 more pods for it, I like it that much. Not sure on how long the pods last yet. They do eat the juice faster with more vapor then others. Plus 3 power settings is cool if you need more or less vape depending on how much time you get for a break or nic you need.

    If you like Drop/Tear Drop/Spaceship looking POD's the ET Auto Kit is a very good performer also. With the Ceramic Coils and Bigger Battery, it's a good choice over others like it.

    My favourite pod devices would probably be the Renova Zero or SMOK's range of pod devices (Nord & Mico).

    I did review the ZERO. It's one of the nicer pod devices due to the adjustable power outputs and the fact that it uses ceramic. The pod lifespan was fairly decent as well. The main reason I would choose this one over other pod devices is because of the draw and because it feels like it has some 'life' to it. Very often I come across pod devices that deliver a very 'weak' or underpowered hit and that's something I hate.

    SMOK's range of pod devices are excellent as well. The nord is high rated and some have said that it has the best flavor from all/most pod devices out there. The nord is also quite cheap and costs cheap to use since it takes replaceable coil heads instead of pods which cut down the cost.

    The SMOK Mico Resin is also great. It looks a lot like the Mi-Pod by SV but offers 3 different pod options and definitely delivers when it comes to power output. The Mico pods do seem airier than the Renova Zero though. Flavor wise, I'd say the Mico is also great. They do offer a ceramic pod for it but I haven't tried it out as yet so I can't comment on that.

    On a final note, to get the best experience from pod devices I have found that you should use 50VG/50PG e-liquids to get the efficient wicking as well as best flavor and pod lifespan. You should also stick to e-liquids that have little/no added Sweetener to them to prolong the pod lifespan.
