Vaping Style:DTL
Overall Cost:£££
Best Liquid Type:High VG
Best For:Intermediate Vapers

Pros & Cons:

👍 Replaceable coils

👍 Great build quality

👍 Adjustable wattage

👎 Only ideal for DTL Vaping

We rate the Aspire BP80: 4.5/5

Accessories:

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It seems everyone is having a go at the VooPoo Drag style. While we are not saying one is better than the other, each have their own unique take on this excellent design.

The Aspire BP80 Kit uses the Aspire BP coil system, offering both a 0.17 Ohm and 0.3 Ohm coil option. With a 2500mAh internal battery, you have more than enough power to last vaping during your day.

It has a similar quick change coil system to the drag series. This means refilling is mess-free and is easy to do on the go.

If you’re looking for the best vape pod for power, the BP80 is certainly a winner.

Vaping Style:MTL
Overall Cost:£
Best Liquid Type:50/50
Best For:Beginners

Pros & Cons:

👍 Low Cost

👍 Prefilled and refillable options

👍 Small form factor

👎 Only ideal for MTL vaping

We rate the Elf Bar Mate 500: 4.5/5

Accessories:

There has been a huge rise in the popularity of disposable vapes in the past few years. A lot of users want something similar, but refillable. The Mate 500 device is the perfect transition from disposables to a more “open” style system.

The Elf Bar Mate 500 has the ability to use pre-filled cartridges. Available in the same great flavours as the Elf Bar disposables. But the device shines when using the Mate 500 refillable pods. These allow you to use your own nicotine salt E Liquids.

Paired with ElfLiq E-Liquid, you can get the same experience as Elf Bar disposables, for a fraction of the price.

If you are looking for a replacement to a disposable, the best pod vape is the Mate 500.


3. OXVA Xlim SE

👎 No adjustable wattage

We rate the OXVA Xlim SE Kit: 4/5

Accessories:

If you are a fan of slim devices but don’t want to go with the Elf Bar option, the OXVA Xlim SE could be the one for you!

It is bigger than the Mate 500, but light at only 46g. It contains a 900mAh battery and can output at up to 25w of power. It is rechargeable and will get you through a whole day of vaping.

There’re three versions of the refillable pods available, with the new Xlim v3 Cartridges featuring top-fill. No coils to replace, just dispose of the cartridge once it starts to taste burnt.

Not only are they easy to swap, but they are simple if you want to carry a spare.

The Xlim SE is best used with nicotine salts. But you can use up to 70VG E Liquids when using the 0.6 Ohm cartridge.

The Xlim SE Bonus kit is the best vape pod kit for those looking for something small, but diverse.

We rate the VooPoo Drag E60: 5/5

Accessories:

The VooPoo Drag series of devices have been popular. There’s been many versions and revisions over the years. The E60 is the latest internal battery vape from VooPoo.

Featuring a massive 2550mAh internal battery and USB-C fast charging. The device features an eco-mode, which helps to make your battery last even longer.

The newly redesigned PnP pods have an easy top-fill system and can control the airflow.

As the name suggests, you will get up to 60w of power output. That’s plenty of wattage for most vapers. But the device will still fit in the palm of your hand.

Compatible with all VooPoo PnP coils, you can use the E60 with both nicotine salts and sub-ohm E Liquids.

We think the Drag E60 is the best refillable vape for those who want a restricted direct to lung experience.

Pros & Cons:

👍 Uses external 18650 battery

👍 Huge range of PnP coil available

👍 Adjustable wattage

👎 No true MTL option

We rate the Voopoo Drag H80s: 5/5

Accessories:

We couldn’t feature one without the other, so let’s take a look at the larger version of the E60 – the VooPoo Drag H80s.

With a taller size than the former device, this device has all the same great redesigned features. The increased height gives you the ability to use your own 18650 batteries. Providing more battery life on the go (when carrying an additional battery).

The Drag series of devices have been a massive staff favourite here. We love the new version with their top fill pods and great new coil options. With magnetically attached pods, they are easy to fill or replace your coil.

The Drag H80s is outputs up to 80w, making it the best vape pod for subohm vaping. Remember to buy the best high drain battery when using a kit like this.

Best For:Beginners

Pros & Cons:

👍 Airflow control

👍 Extremely easy to use

👍 Magnetic pods

We rate the Geekvape Sonder Q Kit: 4.75/5

Accessories:

Geekvape are well known in the vaping industry. And their reputation for producing quality devices is deserved.

They released the Geekvape Sonder U – a small form factor device with refillable pods. A budget kit that is easy to use.

The Geekvape Sonder Q builds on that foundation, improving on some elements. With a more premium design, they feature top-fill pods and the addition of airflow control.

As with most pod kits, there’s no need to worry about mess when swapping pods.

We find that each lasts about 2 weeks before it needs to be replaced. That’s when using Bar Salt E Liquids.

For the performance of this device, it is the best refillable pod vape for those on a budget. Available for £14.99, it’s cheaper than 3 disposables.

Accessories:

The Innokin Klypse Zip is a compact device, shaped like a cigarette lighter. A smaller form factor than the previous generation of Klypse kit. The zip has a familiar design and will fit in your pocket or purse.

The Zip kit is the best pod system for people who work in dusty environments. With its built-in dust-proof cap, you do not need to worry about the mouth-piece getting dirty.

Providing a smooth Mouth to Lung vape, it is inhale activated, just like a single use vape.

We think the design is cool, especially if you miss your zippo lighter. And for only £9.99, it is the cheapest pod kit on our list.

Vaporesso have been producing some fantastic devices, and the XROS 3 pod system is no exception.

Similar bar style design as the Uwell Caliburn or the Geekvape Sonder. It is button free and features inhale to activate technology. The easiest way vape from an e cig.

With a range of different pods to suit different vaping styles, the XROS 3 has been a huge hit with our customers.

The XROS 3 allows vaping in MTL, RDTL and DTL styles, depending on the resistance of the pod used. They are top-fill too, making filling up a breeze.

We see the Vaporesso XROS 3 as a direct competitor to the Oxva Xlim. They are the both best e cigs, it’s down to personal preference.

Featuring a large 1150mAh battery, this device will keep going for longer and it looks the part too.

Designed by Moti. With a little help from Vaporesso. This is certainly one of the more interesting devices. It reminds us of a vape pen devices more than the standard kit.

Engineered to use subohm E Liquids, you will get up to 29w of power. There’s no option for MTL vaping, but it is the best pod system vape if you want a budget subohm kit.
