What’s the best refillable pod system? Should I choose a refillable pod or a disposable one?

What is a Pod System?

Basically, a pod system is a portable vape. In addition, pod systems are usually vaped (although not always) in auto-draw mode. For example, the Aspire Breeze NXT is not an autodraw pod system (you need to press the firing button to vape it). On the other hand, other pod systems such as the Aspire AVP Pro could be vaped in auto-draw mode or by pressing the firing button.

If you are looking for a refillable pod, you have options such as the Aspire Breeze NXT, the Aspire AVP Pro, Aspire Tigon or our latest release the Aspire Minican. On the other hand, if you are looking for disposable pods, you can choose the Aspire SLX with pre-filled disposable pods. Furthermore, there are also RBA pods like the new Aspire Mulus RBA pod.

Mainly, you can find three types of pods: refillable (RBA refillable pods and refillable pods) and disposable pods.

It all depends on your personal preferences. Some vapers prefer refillable while other prefer disposable pods. In addition, RBA refillable pods are more suitable for more advanced vapers. What is the best refillable pod system? Well, it depends on your vaping needs and preferences!
