Open VS Closed Vape Pod Systems, Which is Best for You?



Vape pod systems come in two types: open pod systems and closed pod systems. Choosing the right one can be quite a difficult process. Both them have their advantages and disadvantages. Users can choose the right one depending on their personal preference. How can I know which type of pod system is best for me? This article may help you solve the issue.


Open Pod Systems

Open pod systems consist of a pod mod and a refillable cartridge. This vape device allows the users to fill their cartridges with their favourite nicotine salt e-liquids, such as Kingzonetech’s DY003B. Typically, the pod cartridge has a small plug that reveals a fill port.


Some open pod systems need to change coil and others require to replace the whole pod cartridge. If an open pod system requires coil changes, users need to change and replace these coils when the coil reaches the end of its life. Similarly, if an open pod system requires pod cartridge replacements instead, users can change the pod before it burns out. The average life of a coil is between 1-3 weeks, which depends on how often you use it, and batch quality.



*Open pod systems are mostly popular among vapers who are used to more complex setups. That’s because they’re used to the concept of choosing an e-liquid and pouring it into a tank.

*By using an open pod system, the users can try any salt nicotine vape juice that’s on the market, meaning that they’re not limited to the pre-filled pods that are made by the pod system manufacturer.

*Also, many fans of open pod systems find that they save money because it’s cheaper to buy e-liquid by the bottle than to invest in packs of pre-filled juice pods.



*Filling a pod cartridge may be a hassle for some vapers.

*It’s easy to make a mess while refilling the cartridge due to the small filling ports.


Closed Pod Systems

Currently the closed pod system is the most popular vape pod device on the market. It consists of a battery and a pod cartridge that already contains e-juice. In general, there is a variety of flavors provided by the manufactures to choose from. All that you have to do is snap the pre-filled pod cartridge into the battery and vape away. The closed pods are hassle-free, ready to use, and you can change e-juice flavors easily, just replace the old pod with a new one.



*These devices are especially popular with vapers who don’t want to put a lot of effort into enjoying their vaping experience.

*With each pod coming pre-filled, you don’t need to fill. Therefore, you’ll likely save time.

*Because each pod is already filled with juice, it’s less likely that you’ll run into any problems while you vape.

*A pod cartridge that’s too full can leak, resulting in a variety of annoyances. Closed pod system prevents that from happening.



*If you purchase a closed pod system, you can only use the pre-filled pods that are made by the same manufacturer.

*The user can’t experience the enormous variety of flavors, and they can only enjoy the flavors that is provided by same manufacture.

*The closed pod systems will force you to spend more money over time. This is because most pre-filled juice pods are more expensive than the same amount of e-liquid in a separate bottle.


If you have used both, you will know which one to choose. But if it is the first time that you use the e-cigarette, you should know that open pod systems need to fill the tank. They are much more money-saving than closed pod systems. The closed pods are hassle-free, ready to use, and you can change e-juice flavors easily. Both these are good options for vaping. Therefore, you can choose the right one based on your preferences.
