When using a vape with refillable pods, knowing when to switch them out can be confusing. Changing them too soon can lead to wasting your pod. However, leaving them in too long makes for an unpleasant vaping experience. The best time to change your pod depends on your vaping habits and how well you know them. With this knowledge, you can:

  • vape better
  • make smarter buying decisions
  • maintain and preserve your equipment

    An essential habit is to track your use. This way, you will predict when your current pod is almost done.

    The refillable pod could last up to 5 days for the average user. However, if you're not sure it's time to change yours, there are a few signs that can show you your current pod is exhausted. The biggest of these are reductions in vapor and flavor. Here are a few tips that can help you tell when it's time to switch your pod out.

    Track Your Vaping Rate

    Taking note of your daily e-juice consumption can tell when it's time to switch out your refillable pod. If you're a vaper who only smokes for a few minutes every day, your e-juice will last longer. However, if you often vape throughout the day, you'll notice that your juice gets used up faster. This is especially true if your job allows you to spend much time in a car or outdoors, where vaping is more comfortable than indoors.

    Let's use one of our most popular brands as an example. If you're using a JUUL as a heavy smoker, you might end up going through one JUULpod a day. As such, the basic pack of 4 refillable pods would last you four days.

    Note the Flavor Potency

    When the vapor flavor starts dropping, it's probably time to replace your pod. The potency of each hit is directly related to how much e-juice you have left in your pod. If the potency drops, this is because your pod is almost out, and it's time to get a new one installed.

    Track the Amount of Vapor

    When you pull and notice that the amount of vapor has decreased, it's a sign that the pod needs changing. If you let it go longer even though the vapor and flavor have decreased, your hits may start to burn.

    Dry Hits

    Sometimes, it may be hard to remember to track your vape use or gauge how much flavor is in your hits. In these cases, the easiest way to tell if your vape pod is empty is to get a dry hit.

    You're getting dry hits if you pull and get a burning taste that feels harsh against your throat. It often tastes worse than the sweet vapor you taste when the pod is full.

    Most often, dry hits are a sign of an empty pod. However, if you're chain-vaping, it is possible to vaporize the juice faster than the wick pulls it in, causing a dry hit. In these cases, the coil runs dry before the e-juice is replaced, delivering a dry pull.

    With the above tips, you will get the best out of your refillable pods and change them in good time.
