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.

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.
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.
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.
