Uwell Caliburn

At a glance:

Resistance: 1.4ohm (included) and 1.2ohm
Battery: 520mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 2ml

Weighing in at just 1oz, the Caliburn by Uwell is so light, you’ll think you have a feather in your hand. This pod-based system can be both manually and draw activated, so whether you prefer to hold a button to vape or you want to draw on it, the Caliburn has you covered.

To get started, fill your pod with your favorite nic salts vape juice and let it sit for around five minutes. Properly priming your pod allows your juice to soak into the pre-installed coil, reducing the risk of burnt hits and extending its life. Then all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the Caliburn’s legendary pull and smooth hits.

The Uwell Caliburn vaping starter kit comes with two 1.4ohm pods—one installed and a replacement—but it’s also compatible with the new Caliburn KOKO pods, which have a resistance of 1.2ohm.

A top-fill design makes refilling your pod easy and mess-free—you don’t even need to remove the pod. That doesn’t mean that switching between pods isn’t easy though; a magnetic connection makes replacing worn-out pods a breeze.

The Uwell Caliburn comes in a choice of six stunning colors, from teal blue to the multi-toned iris purple, which graduates from a deep blue to a hot pink.

If you’re looking for a mouth-to-lung (MTL) vape that fits perfectly in your palm and your pocket, then you’ll want to check out this vape sensation.

At a glance:

Resistance: 1.4ohm (included), 0.8ohm, and 0.6ohm (included)
Battery: 1100mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 3ml

Vape in style with the innovative SMOK Nord, a powerful all-in-one (AIO) device wrapped up into a compact pod mod package. It stands at just 94mm tall, but don’t let its small size fool you; under the hood is a 1100mAh battery guaranteed to keep you going all day.

The SMOK Nord has become renowned worldwide, and it’s not hard to see why. If you’re new to vaping, you’ll love the MTL 1.4ohm coil included in your kit. This gives you a tight draw and is perfect for use with high-nicotine e-liquids and nic salts. But if you ever want to enjoy a direct-to-lung (DTL) vape, the SMOK Nord lets you do just that without having to fork out on additional coils—or even a new device. A 0.6ohm coil for sub-ohm vaping is included, giving you huge plumes of vapor and smooth, satisfying flavor.

Simply fast-press the single firing button on the device five times to turn it on and off, and long-press to vape. The pods also feature a duck-billed mouthpiece designed for comfort, and it doesn’t disappoint.

This is one vaping starter kit with longevity. Whatever your style of vaping, there’s no chance of you outgrowing this kit, as the millions of new and seasoned vapers who love the Nord can testify. And with a choice of over 20 stunning colors that range from cobra patterns to carbon fiber and unique resin designs, you’ll always look stylish with the SMOK Nord in your hand.

Leap Vapor

At a glance:

Resistance: 1.8ohm
Battery: 400mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 1.5ml pre-filled pods

After a no-fuss vape that has both form and function? Try the Leap Vapor pod mod and avoid having to refill your vape when you’re on the go. This compact device uses pre-filled pods that you simply swap out when they’re empty.

Every pre-filled pod contains nic salts e-liquid with 48mg or 24mg nicotine, which gives you a smooth hit and an invigorating nicotine buzz every time without any harshness. These pods are sealed and completely leakproof, so whether you’re carrying a spare or you want to switch flavors mid-vape, you won’t have to worry about sticky fingers.

Leap pods come in a range of tasty tobacco and menthol flavors. If you prefer a mild, classic tobacco flavor that isn’t too overpowering, you’ll love the Rough-Cut Tobacco Leap pods. Kentucky Menthol will give you all the minty freshness you could ever want.

The Leap Vapor starter kit isn’t just convenient, though—it looks pretty good too. Housed in a sleek, gray aluminum casing, it feels smooth in your hand. There are no buttons on this device; to enjoy a smooth vape, all you need to do is draw. A handy window on the side of this slim device gives you a quick view of how much juice you have left, so you’ll never unexpectedly find yourself with an empty pod.

Suorin Air Plus

At a glance:

Resistance: 1.0ohm (included), 0.8ohm (included), and 0.7ohm
Battery: 930mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 3.2ml

To stand out, you don’t need to go bigger and bolder or opt for garish color choices. No device better represents this than the Air Plus, an understated yet incredibly sophisticated pod mod kit from Suorin.

The Air Plus is a slightly different shape than many of the pod mod vape starter kits you often see. At 93.2mm tall and 50mm wide, it’s around the same size as a credit card, making this a great portable device you can simply slip into your pocket when you’re not vaping.

This refillable pod mod is available in eight stunning colors, each with a metallic-like finish. Whatever color you choose, you’re guaranteed to get one great-looking vape.

But image aside, how does it perform? With its 1.0ohm pod that includes a pre-installed coil, the Air Plus is the perfect device to get you started, especially if you start vaping with high- nicotine juice or nic salts. But variety is the spice of life, and the Air Plus gives you plenty of it. With an additional 0.7ohm pod included, all you need to do is swap out your pod—no need to change any coils—to enjoy Suorin Air-compatible e-juice. The Air Plus has a maximum wattage output of 22 watts, which intelligently adjusts automatically depending on the resistance of the pod you have installed.

With a large 3.2ml e-liquid capacity and a powerful 930mAh battery that fully charges in just 50 minutes, multiple coil resistances, and a sturdy body designed to withstand the occasional knock, the Suorin Air Plus really does have it all.

5. Uwell Caliburn KOKO

Uwell Caliburn KOKO

At a glance:

Resistance: 1.2ohm (included) and 1.4ohm
Battery: 520mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 2ml

Following the booming success of the Caliburn, Uwell’s latest offering is a simple yet reliable device that offers crisp flavor and a pod life you won’t believe until you experience it for yourself.

The Caliburn KOKO brings with it a new set of 1.2ohm refillable pods that vape at a higher temperature, but they’re also compatible with the highly popular Uwell Caliburn device. The superior design of these pods means you can go longer before having to replace them, allowing you to save money in the long run.

The most obvious difference between the KOKO and the Caliburn is its shape. Gone is the rectangular design in favor of a compressed square shape, which makes it easy to slip into your pocket or wear on a lanyard. There are also no buttons to contend with—just draw on the mouthpiece to enjoy a smooth and delicious hit.

Available in four bold colors, including a vibrant red and deep-sea blue, the KOKO is as stylish as it is functional. And speaking of function, the Caliburn KOKO boasts all of the protections you’d expect to find in an expensive box mod, including short-circuit protection, low-power protection, and an overtime vaping indicator.

Pair the Caliburn KOKO with your favorite nic salts juice and enjoy incredible flavor and vapor production that lasts and lasts.

8. Hellvape Grimm

Hellvape Grimm

At a glance:

Resistance: 0.7ohm (included) and 1.2ohm (included)
Battery: 1200mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 3ml

How would you like to own a vape created from the imaginations of two vaping legends? That’s exactly what you can do with Hellvape’s Grimm all-in-one kit, which is the result of the collaboration between Nick “Grimm” Green and Duane Roederer, more commonly known in the vaping scene as OhmboyOC.

This pod vaping starter kit features everything an intermediate or advanced vaper needs, with variable wattage from 5 to 30 watts. However, you shouldn’t let that put you off if you’re new to vaping, as the Grimm’s automatic coil analysis intelligently reads your coil resistance and recommends an appropriate wattage. Of course, if you’ve vaped variable wattage devices, you’ll feel more confident making manual adjustments to hit that vaping sweet spot, but if not, that functionality is there when you’re ready.

Adjustable airflow and compatibility with the 0.7ohm and 1.2ohm Grimm coils make this the perfect device for both MTL and DTL vaping with nicotine salts and freebase liquids.

In a demonstration of pure innovation, the Grimm features multi-airhole channels that reduce carbon deposition and improve the air intake, life span, and flavor from your coils. Plus, this rapid-fire beast boasts among the fastest firing time of any device, allowing you vape in just 0.012 seconds of hitting the fire button.

The Grimm pod vape is something special, and with the backing of two of the most popular and trusted vapers on the planet, it’s one you’ll want to try.

9. SMOK Fetch Mini

SMOK Fetch Mini

Resistance: 0.4ohm (included), 0.6ohm (included), 0.8ohm, 1.0ohm, 1.2ohm, and 1.4ohm
Battery: 1200mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 3.7ml

Gretchen from the popular film Mean Girls might not have been able to make “fetch” happen, but SMOK has with the Fetch Mini, a sleek AIO that’s as versatile as it is stunning. It’s available in 10 colors, each bearing the word “FETCH” and featuring either a stylish hardened glass panel or a gorgeous acrylic resin panel. At 76 x 42.8mm, it’s smaller than a credit card, but there’s a lot of power in this tiny device.

This pod mod boasts a 1200mAh battery to keep you vaping all day. Checking whether you need to put this baby on charge is easy via the 0.96-inch screen on the side of the device, and with a 55-minute charge time, you won’t have to wait long before you can enjoy the Fetch Mini at full power again.

Where this vaping starter kit really comes to life is its coil compatibility. Included are the 0.4ohm RPM mesh coil, to be used with the included RPM pod, and the 0.6ohm Nord coil, to be used with the included Nord pod, but if you’re a fan of high-nic juice, you’ll be glad to know that you can easily swap out your coil for a higher resistance. The included RPM pod is also specially made to prevent corrosion from nic salts. And with a maximum wattage of 40 watts, you’ll have more than enough power to enjoy flavorful, dense clouds.

An unfortunate side effect of using some pod systems is that excess liquid can drip beneath the pod, leaving you with a messy cleanup job. This isn’t the case with the Fetch Mini. It’s oilproof and dustproof pod base means your connection will always be clean and constant—no more troubleshooting stubborn pods that won’t connect—while the strong magnetic connection ensures that your pod won’t move.

With variable wattage, smooth DTL and MTL hits, a rapid 0.001-second firing time, and a bright and clear screen displaying your resistance, voltage, puff count, and more all in your chosen color accent, there’s no doubt that this mini vape is so Fetch.

Battery: 1500mAh integrated battery
Vape juice capacity: 4.3ml and 4.5ml

With devices like the Fetch, the Nord, and the Novo 2 gaining worldwide recognition for their portability and versatility, you have to wonder if SMOK can ever go wrong. It certainly hasn’t with the RPM 40, an AIO pod mod that packs 40 watts of power into a tiny handheld device.

Much like the Fetch Mini, the RPM 40 features a 0.96-inch screen displaying your battery life, voltage and wattage, coil resistance, and puff count. Where the two immediately differ, though, is in shape. The RPM 40 has a cube-like design with rounded edges, which makes it extremely comfortable and natural to hold. It also feels sturdy, but not uncomfortably so, making this feel like a premium powerhouse in the palm of your hand.

The RPM 40 comes with two dedicated pods: the RPM pod, which has an impressive 4.3ml juice capacity, and the Nord pod, which holds 4.5ml of e-liquid. Whichever pod you use, you won’t be refilling it often, and when combined with a 1500mAh battery, this truly is a vape kit that will last you all day.

When you choose the SMOK RPM 40, you’ll also enjoy a wide range of compatible coils to pair with it. Whether you want to vape nic salts at a low wattage or you’re a longtime vaper after a portable sub-ohm mod, you’ll be happy to know that thick clouds, delicious flavor, and strong, smooth nicotine hits are all possible with this vape.

With all that power comes great responsibility, but SMOK even makes this easy. Simply click the fire button three times to lock your device and prevent misfires in your purse or pocket, and enjoy protection against low voltage, short-circuiting, and high temperature, along with an eight-second cutoff.

For beginner vapers looking for the ability to experiment with their vape when they feel more confident or seasoned vapers searching for a portable pod mod they can customize on the go, the small but powerful SMOK RPM 40 is a great choice.
