SMOK RPM80 Pod System Review
SMOK RPM80 Pod System Review

The excellent SMOK RPM80 Pod System - Can we all agree that once a device exceeds 75 watts, it’s no longer a “pod mod,” and rather a pod-enabled, coil-driven, full-on vape device? Because if we don’t, then a million ACTUAL pod mods -- you know, those low-powered plastic things we used to feature every day [...]

Orion Q-ULTRA Pod Mod Kit by Lost Vape – Review

For a lesser vape device, a lot of reviewers would call the all-new Lost Vape Orion Q-ULTRA pod mod an unnecessary dip in the well. But when you look past any redundancies and similarities, there’s still an awful lot to like for pod vapers, especially if they haven’t used a Lost Vape AIO before. Let’s start [...]

Lost Vape Prana Pod Mod System Review

The Review of the Lost Vape Prana. While most pod mod systems are aiming for higher wattages and lower ohms capabilities, Lost Vape is heading back to vaping’s roots. Not only does the venerable vape company produce the awesome Orion pod system, but now they’ve made a strong gesture toward TRUE mouth-to-lung (MTL) vapers with [...]

Orcas Vape MX CUBE Pod Mod Kit Review
Orcas Vape MX CUBE Pod Mod Kit Review

The Orcas Vape MX CUBE Pod Mod Kit - Once again, we have a multipurpose, sub-ohm-focused pod mod on our desks for review. So, instead of giving you another essay about our confusion regarding these kits, let’s just get right to it. If you’re seeking a mid-wattage, 18650-powered AIO/pod device that isn’t really a pod [...]

Vaporesso Target PM80 AIO Kit Review
Target PM80 AIO Kit by Vaporesso – Review

In the volatile vape marketplace, there are pod mods and AIOs, and then there are devices that take these simplified ideas and turn them into something else entirely. The Vaporesso Target PM80 is in the latter category – and might be the pod/AIO device that raises a few bars in terms of design. Let's Discuss the [...]

OXVA Origin Pod Mod System Review

OXVA Origin 40W Pod System Review - Normally, I’d open this piece with a diatribe about pod mods and how they’re ruining vaping for everyone involved. But we’ve (mostly) gotten over our biases, and realize that these ultra-portable devices are here to stay, and aren’t actually the devil disguised in zinc alloy. (Well, most of us [...]

ARTERY VAPOR PAL 18650 POD SYSTEM
ARTERY VAPOR PAL 18650 POD SYSTEM REVIEW

ARTERY VAPOR PAL REVIEW - This isn’t a pod mod. Once again, I’m forced to open a review with a declarative statement. But after a while, we need to draw a line. Yes, there’s a refillable “pod” serving as a tank section, but the Artery Vapor PAL 18650 is a compact, replaceable coil, AIO device [...]

UWELL CROWN 25W POD SYSTEM REVIEW
UWELL CROWN POD MOD SYSTEM REVIEW

To low-wattage, mouth-to-lung (MTL) vapers, the Uwell Caliburn is still the device to beat. Its combination of slender design and potent draws (even at just 11 watts) made ex-smokers feel a lot better about this whole “vaping” thing. So, we were confused when Uwell decided to tempt fate and release a more-traditional beginner device, the [...]

VOOPOO VINCI AIR 30W POD SYSTEM
Voopoo Vinci Air Pod Mod Starter Kit Review

After dabbling in more-advanced endeavors, Voopoo is back to the pod mod drawing board with the latest in its Vinci series, the all-new Vinci Air Pod Mod Kit. Well, it’s not EXACTLY “back to the drawing board” here -- the Air is definitely more compact and pod-like, but with plug-n-play coils and some decent sub-ohm [...]

ONE VAPE MACE 55 POD KIT
Mace 55 by OneVape – A Pod Mod AIO Kit Review

It’s weird to write this, but we might have reached a point where “throwback” pod mod/AIO devices are hitting the market. While there’s nothing “JUUL-like” about the all-new OneVape Mace 55 kit, OneVape opted for a simpler AIO approach than many competitors are taking these days. Instead of wattage displays and even temp control options, [...]

OBS ALTER 70W POD KIT REVIEW
OBS Alter 70W Open Pod Kit Review

The Review of the OBS Alter 70W Pod Mod Kit - Over the last few months, we’ve started to put the term “pod mod” in quotation marks. The reason is the latest crop of devices doesn’t really fit the 2018/2019 description. With high wattage limits, full-blown replaceable coil setups, and a ton of other similarities, [...]

YiHi SX Auto Squonk Pod System Review
SX Auto by YiHi – A Squonk Pod System – Review

This whole “vaping” thing doesn’t really need to be difficult, does it? Yet, most companies still try to build a better mousetrap in the name of convenience. This usually makes things more complicated than necessary. And that might still be the case with the new YiHi SX Auto Squonk Pod System . Which now introduces a [...]

GEEK VAPE AEGIS BOOST 40W POD MOD KIT
Aegis Boost by Geek Vape – A Pod Mod Review

The Aegis Boost by Geek Vape.  No company gets more life out of a brand than Geek Vape does with its Aegis line. In the few years since the line launched, we’ve seen the Aegis name on every type of vaping product short of a cig-a-like. (And let’s be honest, it would still be [...]

Hellvape Grimm Pod/AIO Kit Review
Hellvape Grimm Pod/AIO Starter Kit Review

As we approach the end of the calendar year 2019, (HAPPY WHATEVER YOU CELEBRATE!!!)  I thought all of my pod mod reviews just might be done and over. But this category refuses to slow down. Enter the Hellvape Grimm Pod Mod Kit, a collaboration with noted vaping personalities Grimm Green and Ohm Boy. (Yes, this is [...]

WISMEC PREVA DNA 20W POD SYSTEM
Wismec PREVA DNA 20W Pod System Review

Reviewing the new WISMEC PREVA DNA Pod Mod System - Alright, I’m gonna come right out and say it -- pod mods don’t need to be this advanced. Over the last few months, we’ve seen the pod format evolve beyond the usual disposable trash to become miniature box mod setups. And some -- most notably [...]
