Top 4 Best MTL Devices for Nic Salt E-Liquids

Vaping has evolved a lot in the last 2 years.  You could call it the 3rd wave.  The first wave was the orignal electronic cigarette.  The 2nd wave were mods and tanks.  The 3rd wave are Pod Mods - both open and closed devices characterized by small size, lower power and both disposable (closed) and refillable (open) system devices.   

The pod mod trend can be traced back to Juul - the leader of closed system pod devices that launched in 2015. Juul also brought in an era of Nicotine Salts.

Today there are a ton of Open System Pod Mod vaping options available.   Here's a rundown of a few of our favorites, including the Mi-Pod, Suorin Air and Drop and the Aspire Breeze 2.  Most of these feature no buttons (or the fire button in optional) and are automatically activated when you inhale. 



The Mi-Pod is a super compact pod mod with a 2ml capacity and an unusually high built-in 950mAh battery (most are around 650 mAH) made by. Smoking Vapor. Mi Pod is a good first choice for MTL vaping nicotine salts. It has top airflow  and we find that the vapor production and flavor is the best in class of similar devices. 

The Mi-Pod also has manual auto-draw, 3-color power indicators, and a micro USB port for charging, making it convenient for all types of users.

Check out our Salty Bastard Starter Kit here featuring a complete Digital Edition MiPod Starter Kit & one 30ml bottle of your choice of Salty Bastard TobaccoSalty Bastard Tobacco Ice, Or Tangerine in a nicotine strength of 25mg or 40mg.

Suorin Air

This Suorin Air has a slim profile similar to a credit card that fits in any pocket or purse and a refillable open pod system for users who want to be able to top it up. The Suorin Air allows for whatever e-liquid you may desire, including nicotine salts. Do take note that it has a 1.2ohm coil resistance, so your selection may be rather limited—a 70/30 VG to PG juice is best, not going lower than 60/40 to avoid leaks.

The Suorin Air has a 2ml capacity and the coils should last about 4 to 5 refills before the coil is burnt. It has a 400mAh battery, so it's not meant for heavy vaping throughout the day. However, it can be fully recharged within 30 minutes, so you won't have to wait long.

Salty Bastard Nicotine Salt E-Liquid - Best MTL Nic SaltsSuorin Drop

The drop-shaped design of the aptly-named Suorin Drop makes it both compact and contain a deceivingly-large capacity at the same time. For its size, having a 2ml refillable pod is quite hefty, as well as having a 13W output. The coil has a 1.3 to 1.4ohm resistance. Other than that, you get a 310mAh battery, micro USB port for recharging, and an LED battery life indicator.

The pod has two chambers, letting you mix e-liquids without having to mix them beforehand. This makes it perfect for filling up with any juice you wish to use, including nic salts.

Aspire Breeze 2

The Aspire Breeze 2 does quite well as the follow-up to the Aspire Breeze—one of the most minimalist MTL devices on the market. Like its predecessor, the Aspire Breeze 2 is simple, yet is packed with tons of features. While it doesn't offer a replaceable pod, this all-in-one design does allow for a tank with a 2ml capacity and top fill.

It may not be the full-on sort of vape pod you'd expect, it does have most of the pod characteristics you can expect like a selection between auto or manual, single button operation, LED battery life indicator, side airflow, and so on. It also has a 650mAh battery, various safety features, and Aspire Breeze U-Tech coil heads.


There are a ton of Pod Mods & MTL devices on the market for you to choose from, but these top 4 really stand out against the rest to us when it comes to reliability & usability. They all have their perks, so hopefully this article helps you narrow down your search for your next Pod Mod Device. After you've chosen your device, you'll want to be sure to fill your pod with high quality nicotine salt e-liquid - Check out the award winning flavors we have available in our store HERE.

I have tried different vapes for years to cut down on my smoking to no avail..until I tried to the Smok Nord. Never have I been able to achieve the same satisfaction from smoking a cigarette with a vape…until my son told me about this device and salt nic, I was smoking a pack a day (for well over 25 years) and after a week of using salt nic and my Nord, I am down to 2 to 3 cigarettes a day and that is because I am not punishing myself and trying to transition at my own pace. My goal is to never buy another carton of cigarettes. I have had some issues with the coil clogging and being much harder to get a hit off of (sometimes I suck in juice, which is not good) so not sure how to fix that issue but all in all, this device is working very well for me. I coughed A TON at first but not so much anymore. I am just hoping this turns out cheaper than cartons of cigarettes that I have been buying. I guess that will depend on how often I have to refill my pod and replace the coil. Still trying to figure all of that out. By the way, I started on a 35mg salt nic and moved to a 50mg and I honestly can’t tell a huge difference. I feel like it is my new pacifier. I am hitting it fairly regularly but for once, I am being satisfied with something other than a Marlboro! I also bought an Orion DNA chip device last week for a back up…having issues with that one. Coughing so hard I had to put it down and it spits and pops really bad. I am not happy about that because I ended up paying close to $100 just for the startup kit and 2 pods. I just keep going back to my Smok Nord but I am not giving up. My son swears the Orion DNA is the best thing since sliced bread. We shall see.

I notice the orion dna go was not listed. It could very well not have been released when this article was posted, however it certainly deserves a spot on thos this list! Long lasting pods, i get 2-3 more days compared to my previous pod systems (badge, air, drop, novo, are all pid systems i own).5 phm pod is great for salts and cbd. However im personally running the. 25 pod with 50 nic and cbd and get a brtter result in terms of nic satisfaction (i chewed 2-3 cans a day) for people looking to quit smoking, and smoke about a pack a day id suggest the .5 ohm pod and no higher than a 35 salt nic on the Orion dna go.

I have a Suorin Vagon and the contact spring has stopped working. I am looking to replace it. I am no leery of any other Suorin product but want to make sure that I am able to find pods when I need them. Any suggestions?


February 04, 2019

@alanna , @daniel. Try to find a breeze. Not the breeze 2, just a plain old breeze. There hearty devices that give a great hit and lots of flavour. @daniel, just take small pulls for a couple weeks, longer your off the cigs the better your lungs will begin to feel. After a couple months I was taking big thick blasts and not choking anymore. Now 7 months just vaping, I can hawl in some impressive blasts, and I only choke up if it’s a peticularily strong vape juice

My poor vape shop. I have gone through 2 Sourin drops, 2 warlocks, 2 another weird brands that didn’t work the second I took it out of package, 1 SMOK infinix, 4 sourin airs, and I’m 2 days into my 4th sourin air and it’s already screwing up. It’s not inhaling. I would like to know of a good quality Nic Salt vape. I don’t understand why I keep buying these things and they all break in a matter of a few days. I spent so much money. I switched from smoking and e-cigs to save money and ended up spending more!!! I need some advice and an actual good brand that isn’t made with some cheap Chinese parts that breaks in a few days!!!! Help!!!!!

Hello Kurt,

I need a clarification from your quote on SUORIN AIR “Do take note that it has a 1.2ohm coil resistance, so your selection may be rather limited—a 70/30 VG to PG juice is best, not going lower than 60/40 to avoid leaks.”. Are this also apply to other pod system? I’ve buying a Aspire Nautilus with Jade Tiger 50/50 and the yeah it leak as the liquid is flooding out of the air hole and I’ve got hot spitback everytime I put it aside for several hour. I need a bit information as well for my awareness to avoid wasting on buying good combination IF your quote is apply to all kind of liquid thick + pod resistance.


January 08, 2019

@Daniel. are you sure your not trying to use a salt Nic device as mod? You have to get used to it first of all no matter how you see it if your using 50 Nic thats the same as almost 200 puffs off a cigarette (depending on pod amount). try lowering to 24 again then slowly going up.


January 06, 2019

Do not agree with the list. Its a hard core vaper’s choice list.
Daniel P Marsh. If you like a thick and concentrated vape smoke then Breeze 2 for you. That’s why you keep coughing like myself. Gave it up.
Also, coughing is a self-protective mechanism of your lungs as if you are drowning.

I’ve been vaping for a couple of years. Can’t really find a good fit.
Tried so many of them. Best if you want smooth and quit smoking try Myle strawberry pods. But They are very strong. Refilled them with lower Nic Salt does not work well. From high lvl of Nic in them gave me HIGH HEART RATE. not good.
Tried Bo One Plus its garbage, juice either in your mouth or all over the pods.

Now I am on KWIT stick it is ok. Flavor suffering, but I can refill and last quite a while. Works for now. Just a heads up this stick is giving a harsher vape smoke fill so with 24mg of nic salts I feel alright.

You might have to find your device by experimenting.

Hi Daniel – not sure about your reaction to the Aspire Breeze 2 – that’s the first we have heard of anything like that. Regarding mixing nic salt eliquid with regular eliquid – sure, that’s not a problem. Just don’t put that in a sub ohm tank – as this will likely still be way to strong for that much power.

Brand new to vaping I bought they aspire Breeze 2 the first hit I am coughing my brains out! The salesman did sell me a Saltz Nic 50 mg. Change to eat use at 12 mg and I’m so coughing badly. And then the score gave me a bottle of 0 nicotine Flavored e-juice and to my amazement I’m still coughing what’s a ton of YouTube videos I understand the device pretty good I know how to adjust the airflow and I know how to fill the pod and prime the coil. After all the trials in that is I’m taking very small hits on a 3 mg e-juice. Do you think I might have a better experience with a different kind of device? Then my last question is can I mix the saltz Nic with the E Juice without messing up the device or my body
