Vape Juice Recommendations For Pod Vapes

Need some suggestions for what vape juice to run in your pod vape? Here’s some suggestions for some of the most popular pod vapes

What Liquid is Best For Pod Vape?

SMOK RPM 4 Review

The best liquid for a pod vape typically depends on the specific device and the user’s preferences.

Most pod systems are designed to work best with nicotine salt e-liquids.

But there are specific sub-ohm pod vapes that are designed to be more like a traditional vape mod and tank setup, and these will happily run High VG vape juice.

Like the SMOK RPM 4 (pictured above).

With non-sub-ohm pods, you’ll want to stick to nicotine salts for optimal flavor and experience.

Nicotine salts allow for higher nicotine concentrations without the harshness that would normally be associated with high nicotine strengths in traditional freebase nicotine e-liquids.

This makes them ideal for smokers transitioning to vaping. Nicotine salt e-liquids usually have a 50/50 VG/PG ratio, which provides a good balance between throat hit and vapor production, suitable for the low power output of most pod systems.

Can You Put Any Juice In A Pod Vape?

While technically you can put various types of e-juices in a pod vape, it’s not always advisable to do so.

Pod vapes are generally designed for thinner e-liquids (like those with a 50/50 VG/PG ratio), as they use smaller coils and have tighter airflow compared to sub-ohm devices.

Using e-liquids with a high VG content (which are thicker) might lead to wicking issues, resulting in dry hits or a burnt taste.

Additionally, using non-nicotine salt e-liquids with low nicotine strength might not be satisfying for users looking for a nicotine hit, due to the lower power output of pod devices.

Can You Use 70/30 Vape Juice In A Pod Vape?

Vape Juice Recommendations For Pod Vapes

Using a 70 VG / 30 PG vape juice in a pod system is possible, but it might not provide the best experience.

High VG e-liquids are thicker and might not wick as efficiently in the small coils typically found in pod systems. This can lead to the aforementioned issues like dry hits or burning the coil more quickly than intended.

Some newer and more advanced pod systems with larger coils and adjustable airflow can handle higher VG e-liquids better.

You can spot these because they output at higher wattages – anywhere from 60W to 150W usually.

Bottom line? If your pod is low power (below 20W) it is designed to be MTL and, therefore, used with nicotine salts e-liquids.

If it is over 20W – something like 40W or above, usually – it can do sub-ohm vaping and will run, in some instances, both nic salts and high VG juice (depending on the coil you have installed).
