Here is Our Up-to-Date Review of the Best Refillable Pod Vape Systems for Vapers and Smokers

There are so many ultraportable Pod Vapes on the market, it’s getting harder to find the best ones. Even articles that list the top sellers, can get outdated within a few weeks. It’s also not uncommon for some pod vapes to be discontinued.

We continually update this post, as new (and better) devices become available.

All of our choices are “Open System”, refillable devices. That means you can add your own e-liquid. “Closed System” devices have pods that contain the manufacturer’s e-liquids. That can be limiting, and they can prove to be more costly in the long run.

Our ratings are based on reliability, style, versatility and overall value for cost.

The 6 Best Refillable Pod Vape Systems



SMOK Nord 4 in 10 colors


The SMOK Nord has become one of the most popular choices for vapers. Lightweight and portable, the new SMOK Nord 4 comes in twelve stunning colors, including cobra patterns and leather.

It has a 2000 mAh integrated battery, and you get up to 80 watts of power.  The kit includes 2 RPM pods – a 0.16ohm RPM 2 coil, (for direct lung vaping), and a 0.4ohm RPM Mesh Coil (for gentle mouth to lung vaping). Each pod will hold a huge 4.5mL of e-liquid.



Available in seven colors, the VAPORESSO GEN AIR 40 VAPE Kit has been rated 5 stars by reviewers. It has a powerful, 1800mAh internal battery, and adjustable airflow.

SMOK RPM40 Pod Mod

Rated 5 stars by reviewers, the Smok RPM 40 Vape Pod Starter Kit is very affordable and comes in 14 colors.

You can use either traditional or nicotine salt e-liquids, and the pod holds a generous 4.3 ml of e-liquid. The battery is 1500mAh, so it really holds a charge for a long time. Recharging the battery is fast too! Vapor production and flavor is excellent. Of course, there are lots of safety features.

    Hi I have now bought 2 smok solus kits in just one month but on both the battery stopped charging inside of only 2 weeks .
    There was timy amount of fluid between the battery and the pod so I dabbed it with a cotton bud and it’s never charged since.
    I did exactly the same with my new one and that battery hasn’t worked since.
    Is it a defect or am I doing something wrong please?

    1. Hi Miss Nadin,
      I suggest you contact Smok at Include your order number, and describe your problem. They should be able to help you. Best of luck!

    So out of that list which ones are the basic fill and vape because I find the ones where I can customise never seem to find the right balance without it gurgling and or burning the damn coil.
    I bought the uwell g2 after reading so many reviews but its been a disappointing experience, not only did it leak despite pushing the coil right in snug the device started playing up after just 3 weeks usage.
    I love the flavour hit etc of the geek bar but they barely give you a 100 puffs and last more than 2 days so very costly. I want a device thats ideally geekbar without having to customise- just refill and vape…sorry about the lost post but I’ve gone through the innokin, jac vapour and now uwell g2 and they’re all disappointing.

    1. Hi Joe,
      Sorry to learn you have been disappointed with your vapes. If you are looking for a vape that you just refill when needed, that needs no customization, you have a few options.

      1- The MIG Vapor 21 Clear Fusion Vape Pen Kit, is a slim vape that comes with a standard battery and a Clear Fusion Tank. When you buy it, you can select either 1.8ohm or 2.5ohm tank. You can also purchase extra batteries (standard or superpower), and extra tanks.

      2- You may also enjoy Smok’s Novo 4 Mini Vape Pod Starter Kit. The only customizable feature is the adjustable airflow dial, which is part of the device.

      I hope you find these suggestions helpful.

    Do you have any tips on how to fix a leaking Mico pod? I bought some from VesaVape and I thought I got a defective pack, but they sent a replacement and still the same issue. I read many people have had issues with some of the mico’s being leaky or defective.

    1. Vaporfi recommends that you check the rubber plug to make sure that it is properly inserted into the pod, and never fill above the maximum e-liquid line. Hope that helps!

    Hi Gary, thanks for your reply. Yes it is spelt that way on the box, I’ve checked it twice lol. “Liquorice”. The smok nord us still working for me just fine. I’m even contemplating buying another one. Glad too that I’m finally off the roll ups and cigs altogether. Vaping has really helped with the cravings rather than using, patches and the gum! Yuk! Enjoy the ” Liquorice” if you can find it, it’s really nice, for me anyway. Good Luck and thanks again. Cheers. Razor

    Hi, Im new to vaping, gave up the cigs end of Feb and glad I did. I’ve been rolling my own since 1976…..I Know.
    Better late than never so they say. Anyway I started vaping with a KiK O2 Pen, got on well with it after seeking expert advice at my local E Cigs outlet, thanks Graham. Having to charge the battery up every day, I needed a second device so back to Graham. I’m only wanting MTL vaping. I did some research and a couple of devices shone out for me as being simple to set up, use and maintain, coils etc. I went to see Graham and he steered me towards a SMOK NORD, which he uses himself. I bought it with 2 replacement 1.4 Coils and went on my way. Got it home, set it up and WOW! what a difference to my KiK Pen. I get a better stronger taste from my e-liquid, 16mg Liqourice and it suits me just fine. I would recommend this little device which fits well in the hand, travels well in the pocket, no leaks and battery monitoring lights and it is so simple to fit the coil and fill the pod. Highly recommended and many thanks again to Graham. No cigs at all, thanks to vaping. Doc will be pleased when I see him next.

    1. Hi Razor,

      Thanks for your comment and it’s great that you’ve given up those rolled ciggies. I love my SMOK Nord too – what a game changer. Hmm, I’ll have to try some Liquorice e-juice!..haven’t seen it spelled that way since I left the UK years ago :).

      Also glad your 1.4 coils are working well. Cheers!
