Best Ultra-Portable Pod Mod Systems for 2018

All the ultra-portable vaping devices you’ve been seeing everywhere, coming from small manufacturers to the big leagues like SMOK, are commonly called Pod Mods. Pod Mod Systems are ultra-portable, easy to use systems that are the most affordable mods on the market, mostly. Typically, you can expect to pay $15-$30 for most Pod Mods, but on rare occasions, premium ULTRA-PORTABLE Pod Mods can run as high as $100+, such as the luxurious Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod.

During our research for this Best Ultra-Portable Pod Mods piece, we learned a great deal about these systems, and tested more than 35 individual pod mods. Using Nicotine Salt e-juice with nicotine levels ranging from 30-59mg, and freebase nicotine e-juice containing just 3mg of nicotine, we discovered that this blossoming segment of the vape industry has created mods that every Vaper might want to consider.

Best Ultra-Portable Pod Mods Systems for 2018 – Spinfuel VAPE

The Dual Purposes of the Pod Mod

Ultra-Portable Pod Mod was developed with a dual purpose in mind; to appeal to Vapers wanting something very small, yet much more effective than any cig-a-likecould possibly deliver, as well as to current smokersthat have finally made up their mind to get off tobacco. Some Pod Mods are most effective with high nicotine salt e-juice, while others provide an extremely pleasant vape experience with very little nicotine. And as stealth devices, this new generation of mods are making stealthy vaping safer, and fun.

Determining Deserving Pod Mod Systems

Over the course of the next couple of months we will be publishing numerous reviews for this ever-growing list of Pod Mods. To date, we’ve spent time with thirty-five such devices since the end of 2017, using various nicotine salt e-juices as well as freebase e-juice. (Freebase nicotine is the common nicotine found in the majority of e-liquids). This time was spent getting to know, and understand, the Pod Mod paradigm, not to write individual reviews. Now that our “Best Ultra-Portable Pod Mod” piece is complete, we will go back and spend even more time in order to provide complete reviews for each Pod Mod we spent time with.

What we discovered was that some Pod Mod Systems seemed to be slapped together quickly just to get a system on the market, while others were thoughtfully designed, well made, and performed handsomely. We used Pod Mods that cost less than $30 that blew us away, like the  Suorin Air V2 Ultra-Portable System, (less than $20), the SMOK INFINIX($19.95), and a couple of other that cost much, much more, like the abovementioned Shanlaan Laan, a 40W powerhouse ultra-portable at more than $100.

Some Pod Mod Systems feature refillable “pods”, while others, like the Kilo 1K Ultra-Portable Pod Mod, doesn’t even come with a “pod”. You’ll need to purchase prefilled pods for the Kilo, which are 1.5mL pods filled with various flavors and 45mg of nic-salt e-juice. A package of 4 prefilled pods will cost $20. Like we said, there are already so many different systems on the market, finding the right one for you could take forever… or, this list of the best pod mod systems can cut that time into minutes.

Ultra-Portable Pod Mods perform in as many ways as there are mods for sale, but the systems in the list below perform extremely well, otherwise, it did not make the list. Make sure to read about each one on the list below, they will guide you to want you want.

For some a decision on which Pod Mod System to invest in may very well depend on aesthetics, a preferred chassis design, or its ability to refill the pod part of the system, and it may all come down to discovering that a Pod Mod System might not be the answer you’re looking for at all.  Whatever the case, the Pod Mods we’ve chosen can be trusted to perform as advertised, and their cost is more than justified. If you find a system below, click on the Buy Now button and be whisked off to Element Vape where you’ll find great prices and customer service. We don’t say that because we have to, we say it because everyone here at Spinfuel VAPE are full retail customers, and we’re extremely satisfied every time.

Now, on with our twelve picks for the Best Ultra-Portable Pod Mod Systems available today…

Secret Sauce STIX Ultra Portable Pod System

Secret Sauce STIX Pod System is an all-in-one vape kit with an integrated 300mAh rechargeable battery stick shaped mod that is designed to work with prefilled 1.7mL STIX pods (cartridges). The Secret Sauce STIX System is definitely a futuristic looking vape pen that is remarkably comfortable to hold and to use.

The STIX Pod Mod is a closed-system and is a draw-activated device so no need to hunt down a fire button to draw from the pod. Its proprietary magnetic connector provides a secure hold on the pods in use, as well as when the user is replacing pods.

The Secret Sauce STIX’s pod system holds 1.7mL of e-juice with a whopping 50mg nicotine strength (Note: pods are not included in this kit) in wide variety of flavors. The pod flavors include Tobacco, Grape, Cigar and Watermelon.

While we like the performance of the Pods and the vape pen, the 50mg nicotine was just too much for us to test very long. The pods are expensive as well, pods come in 4-packs for just over $20. You can see all available flavors of the Secret Sauce STIX Pods.

VERDICT:If you want a Pod Mod that uses prefilled pods, and don’t mind paying more than $20 for 4x 1.7mL pods, this one might be for you. The tobacco flavor reminded me of the old tobacco flavor used by BluCigs when Johnson Creekmade their prefilled cartomizers, so that’s a big plus. However, if you want the freedom to choose your own e-juice, and your own nicotine strength, the Secret Sauce STIX is not for you. Still, you can’t argue with its performance, it’s a solid pod mod.

Secret Sauce STIX Ultra-Portable Pod Starter Kit Features:

  • Plug-and-Play Ecosystem
  • Integrated 300mAh Rechargeable Battery
  • LED Light Battery Indicator
  • Voltage-Based Output

SMOK ROLO Badge Ultra-Portable System

The SMOK ROLO Badge Ultra-Portable System has a striking shield-like design, but for this reviewer it reminded me more of the “tuning” instrument my first-grade teacher used before the class began singing. But, I can see it “seen” as a shield design.

The ROLO has a small 250mAh integrated battery with a 2mL maximum capacity pod for your choice of e-liquid. Nicotine salts work great with the ROLO. The ROLO Badge is an all-in-one design, and to take a draw you simply place it to the mouth and inhale.

The ROLO has replaceable cartridges with a capacity of up to 2mL e-juice, using an easy side fill method and a rubber plug. The atomizer core is built into the pod, uses a special cotton to provide excellent vapor production and flavor fidelity, just like you would expect from SMOK, makers of the TFV12 Prince. The ROLO is an innovative addition to the ultra-portable market, but it is not the only shield-shaped pod mod out there.

VERDICT: Excellent performance. I had to keep in mind I was using an ultra-portable pod mod because the flavor fidelity and vapor production was more than I expected from a device like this. If you don’t mind refilling your pods, this is an excellent choice. However, if the shield design isn’t appealing, look below for the SMOK INFINIX.

Sigelei Fuchai V3 Pod Ultra-Portable Kit

The Fuchai V3 is the first pod mod system by Sigelei, This Ultra-Portable Kit provides a natural draw without the need of a fire button. Just draw to activate the device. The Fuchai V3 has a 1.5mL refillable E-juice chamber and is powered by a 400mAh integrated battery.

The 400mAh internal battery lasts longer than expected, about 2 hours of normal vape time. It is certainly travel-friendly and includes an LED battery life indicator, so you know when to recharge. The 1.5mL refillable pods are 1.8ohm resistance coils. Vapor production is above normal for an ultra-portable, and the flavor production, or flavor fidelity, is as accurate as any ultra-portable on this list.

VERDICT:For a travel vape the Fuchai V3 is hard to beat. At less than $20, this pod mod comes with one 1.5 refillable pod. We’ve been able to refill the pod more than a dozen times so far, so you can expect a healthy lifespan for the included pod, and the replacement pods (includes the coil) come in 2-packs for about $5.00. For an Ultra-Portable, the Fuchai V3 is a standout.

ZOOR Ultra-Portable Pod System by 7 Daze

The ZOOR Ultra-Portable Pod System is gorgeous, well-built, and delivers a quite wonderful vape for an ultra-portable. The ZOOR makes it on this list for those reasons, but there is much to be concerned about, and unless ZOOR can rework its business model, this otherwise excellent device may not have a long life. But first, the good news about the ZOOR, then the bad…

It is a beautifully designed device, has an internal 500mAh lithium battery that lasts about 3-4 hours depending on how often its used. The ZOOR features a stout pen-style design with soft curves all-around and a comfortable, rubberized grip section. It feels good to hold and is the most stylish of the bunch that made the list.

The ZOOR Ultra-Portable is closed-system, and the user simply draws on the tip of the ZOOR to activate it. The device uses a proprietary magnetic podthat is inserted into the device easily. You’ll feel and hear a magnetic click when the pod is properly placed.

Had the ZOOR offer refillable pods this one might have been the best ultra-portable yet, but instead, when you purchase the ZOOR Kit you don’t even receive a single pod. Replacement Pods come in 4-packs for nearly $30, a big price to pay for 2mL pods.

Despite the wonderful ability to provide true flavor fidelity with its Ceramic Coil Technology, you are limited to the 50mg nicotine salt e-juice in the prefilled pods.  Flavor choices include a sweet Apple, a deep yellow Cake, a sweet Candy, and too-Minty Ice flavor. But the price for these 2mL pods place the ZOOR at the top of the most expensive to use ultra-portable devices. You’ll pay $30 for the device, and another $30 for a 4-pack of pods.

VERDICT: If I were a rich man, Daidle deedle daidle Daidle daidle deedle daidle dumb… How sad we were to set up a ZOOR with a Cake Pod and spend a couple of hours enjoying a great vape, only then to find out how expensive the pods are. We include the ZOOR because it is a terrific ultra-portable pod mod, and if they ever decide to offer empty, refillable pods for a reasonable price, the ZOOR could be a huge hit. For now, only the wealthy would find this one a real solution to stop smoking.

Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod 40W Starter Kit

When we learned the price of the Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod we thought it had to be a mistake. Then we set up a couple of them and knew immediately that the Shanlaan is priced reasonably, considering how superior this Pod Mod is.

The most luxurious addition to our Best Pod Mods, the ultra-portable  Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod delivers up to 80W of power. The Starter Kit includes a high-end metal aluminum Mod with premium leather, and a full 1300mAh internal battery. Additionally, the Shanlaan comes with Bluetooth!

The pod mod tubular design is constructed with a high quality aluminum to keep the weight down, and a beautiful leather grip that creates one a stunning all in one vape system.

The Laan Pod Mod’s 1300mAh rechargeable battery is charged by flipping open the MicroUSB port located at the bottom of the mod. The Laan System is a draw-activated pod mod that even includes a child-lock function, plus the ability to adjust the output of power and temperature settings when connected to an iOS or Android System by way of Bluetooth and the Laan App.

The Laan uses replaceable 2mL sub-ohm tanks with a convenient top-fill method and adjustable airflow for flavor and cloud-production.

VERDICT:By its performance and features, it’s hard to call the Shanlaan Laan a Pod Mod System. It won’t replace my 220W box mod and 8mL Sub-Ohm Tanks, but when it’s impossible to vape with my personal high wattage devices, I’ll be using the Laan.  If you’re looking for a simple Pod Mod there are much less expensive choices, but if you want more, well, everything, from a Pod Mod, and can lay out $100 for it, this is the one you want.

Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod 40W Starter Kit Features:

Suorin Drop Ultra-Portable System

The Suorin Drop Ultra-Portable System looks a lot like the SMOK ROLO Badge and delivers a similar vape experience to that of the ROLO. This is an all-in-one starter kit featuring a 310mAh rechargeable battery and the Suorin Drop Refillable Cartridge System. Like the ROLO, you choose the e-juice.

The Suorin Drop has a draw-activated firing mechanism, and its integrated 310mAh battery uses an LED light indicator for letting you know the remaining battery power. The Suorin Drop is a two-piece device, with 2mL replaceable cartridges made to work best with Nicotine Salts E-Liquids or, if you want, regular freebase E-Liquids.

VERDICT:We like the Suorin product line, and the Suorin Air is the one we would choose over the “Drop”, but from a performance viewpoint, both function nicely as true Pod Mods. Both the ROLO and the Drop deserve to be on this list, but in reality, their performance is equal, the design is similar, and both allow the user to choose their own e-liquid.

Suorin Air V2 Ultra-Portable System

The Suorin Air V2 Ultra-Portable System has quickly become a favorite stealth vape for many of the staff here at Spinfuel VAPE. Its wide, flat, body design feels strange at first, but after just a few minutes you take to it, and it feels natural. Best of all, the performance, considering the tiny mouthpiece, is amazing.

The Suorin Air V2 uses a 400mAh rechargeable battery and 2mL e-juice pods in a slim and wide, two-piece structure. Measuring 88mm by 45mm by 8mm this flat rectangular chassis is fun to use.

The Suorin Air is made by Foxconn(which also makes millions of Apple iPhones) with a minimalist look and marvelously crafted for its portability.

The Suorin Air V2 provides good performance and modern design, and like most other Pod Mods, its 400mAh rechargeable battery uses an LED light indicator to give feedback on the battery life.

Draw-activated firing, the Suorin Air provides wonderful performance for its small size. If Apple was to get into the Ultra-Portable Vape market I think the Suorin Air Ultra-Portable System represents a pod mod Apple would design.

VERDICT:Unfortunately, to truly understand and appreciate the Suorin Air V2, you have seen one in person. You need to see how easy it is to use, to fill, to draw on, and how it all works out wonderfully with this strange, but natural flat, wide rectangular pod mod. I love it!

Aspire Breeze Pocket AIO Kit

The Aspire Breeze Pocket AIO Kitis Aspire’s entrant to the ultra-portable platform, and with one look, any experienced Vaper would see the Aspire design influences. At about $20, there is a lot to like here.

The all-in-one structure has both a draw-activated firing system and button-operated system (your choice) plus a decent size 650mAh rechargeable battery. Although not truly a “pod mod” because it does not use replaceable pods, its ultra-portability makes it an ideal candidate for this piece.

As an all-in-one mod, the Aspire Breeze uses replaceable coils, the U-Tech-like Coil Structure. The Breeze measures 93mm by 33mm by 18mm, with a rounded contour chassis, making it perfect for travel and for stealthy portability.

Using a simple top-fill system to fill its 2mL reservoir, the Breeze is as simple to use as any Pod Mod. Like true pod mods, the Breeze uses an LED battery indicator, and the option of pairing it with an independent Breeze Charging Dock that adds 2000mAhto overall life (sold separately).

The Breeze by Aspire is draw-activated or by way of a fire button and provides remarkable performance for its size. Both flavor fidelity and vapor production are far removed from cig-a-like days, and almost quality for a full fledge mod.

The Breeze U-Tech Coil makes is new with the Breeze introduction and is said to be inspired by the Nautilus X U-Tech Coil Technology, which provides a structure design of a top-airflow intake that travels down through the vertical spacing of the coil, then passes back up through the other air slot for a U-formation. It works brilliantly and delivers on all its claims.

VERDICT:  The Aspire Breeze Pocket AIO Kit is an excellent ultra-portable system for the modern demands of the today’s Vapers. Looking very much like an Aspire device and delivering a lovely vape experience we just did not expect, our full review upcoming will provide much more information about its durability and performance.

ALUR Slik Ultra-Portable Pod System

The ALUR Slik Ultra-Portable Pod System is designed to look like a card-style device, flat and wide, wider than the Suorin Air V2, and it is an open pod system,. Using a 400mAh built-in battery and 2mL pod cartridges, the performance is nearly identical to the Suorin Air.

The Slik system uses a two-piece structure, and the 2mL cartridge is replaceable, can be refilled by a plug located at the bottom of the reservoir. At just over $20, the Slik balances flavor and vapor for an excellent pod mod performance.

VapeDynamics Cora Ultra-Portable System

The VapeDynamics Cora Concentrate Portable System is a true all-in-one. Featuring a 500mAh semi-closed system with a tiny 1.0mL magnetic ceramic coil pod, it’s performance exceeds its tiny juice capacity enough to warrant its inclusion here.

The VapeDynamics Cora is designed with elegance, made with an aluminum shell for pocket-size and travel. The Cora uses a single-button firing mechanism, it is not draw-activated. It’s 500mAh rechargeable battery is charged through a MicroUSB port.

VapeDynamics uses a V-smart Snap-On mechanism that’s magnetic for a secure connection. The refillable pod section holds up to 1.0mL and its ceramic coil core provides better flavor than abundant vapor, especially when used with nic salts.

VERDICT:This Pod Mod system is all business. It’s expensive, at almost $40, but it will last forever. This is a businessman or businesswoman’s stealth vape and could easily satisfy heavy smokers wanting to quit tobacco. While its 1mL capacity is tiny in comparison, using nic-salt e-juice gives it a longer lasting vape experience before the need to refill.

In Conclusion

The Pod Mod devices presented here are just a fragment of the number of devices available today. We admit we haven’t tried them all, but the 35 devices we did use, extensively, these 10 stand out as performers. Just because these devices are small, hold very little e-juice compared to the mid-wattage, 8mL sub-ohm market, they make wonderful choices for current smokers looking to quit, and stealthy vapes for experienced Vapers wanting a quick vape.

If this will be your first Pod Mod experience, we recommend trying something that doesn’t break the bank, like the Suorin Air V2. Convenience can be had with the prefilled pod systems, and for those that would rather buy their own nic-salt or freebase juice, the choice is here.

Pod Mods are gaining a share in the vape market because the technology exists to provide a good vape experience with an inexpensive, tiny device, technology that far surpasses the cig-a-likes of yesterday. Read each of the above Pod Mod’s carefully, with the wide variety of battery capacities, all-in-one’s and pod-dependent, there is a right pod mod for you on this list.

 

All these Pod Mods, and more, are available at Element Vape.

One thought on “Best Ultra-Portable Pod Mod Systems for 2018”

  1. Pod Mods allow not only stealthiness…they don’t blow through nearly as much eliquid in order to deliver a satisfying nicotine fix. They are here to stay…and may be our last line of defense against oncoming regulation of the vape industry.
