Refillable Pods, Prefilled Pods vs Coils: Which Are Best?

Pod Vape Kits Help

Refillable Pods and Prefilled Pods have become extremely popular in the vaping world. They are smaller, more user-friendly, and offer a wide range of flavors. However, with so many options available, it can be confusing to know which one to choose. In this post, we will explore the different types of pods and help you find the perfect kit for your vaping needs. Let’s get started!

Comparison of Replacement Costs

While some coil kits may offer higher quality, most coils have a similar lifespan. However, replacing the entire pod, whether it’s a replacement pod or a reusable pod, can be more expensive. Replacement pods with coils start at £2.99 for a single pod and coil combo. But if you only need replacement coils, they start at £1.99, which is quite affordable. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide whether you prefer the convenience of a replacement pod or the budget-friendliness of individual coils. The choice is yours.

Impact on the Environment

The best way to reduce our impact on the environment is by using replacement coils. Instead of throwing away the whole coil, we can use refillable or prefilled pods that come with coils. This way, we consume fewer global resources because we only need to replace a small part. For those who want an advanced and eco-friendly option, they can customize their coils with RBA, RTA, or RDA kits like the RPM kit from Smok. Instead of discarding the entire coil, they just need to change the cotton, which extends the life of the coil. Let’s work together to protect the environment and make a positive impact with our vaping choices.


The type of pod kit you prefer depends on what you find easy to use. Experienced vapers are accustomed to replacing coils by screwing or pushing them in and out. While it may require a little effort, it becomes second nature quickly.

However, new vapers may find this overwhelming and might prefer the easiest option of removing the entire pod section and replacing it with a new one, to avoid getting their fingers covered in juice.

If you wish to replace the sealed pods, then the majority of pods which allow replacement pods (with coils included) will be suitable. Kits offering this include the incredibly popular Vaporesso XROS Mini 0.8ohm and Vaoresso XROS Mini 1.2ohm pod kits. There is also now the Gotek X which are the best-value pod kits by the leading vape manufacturer, Aspire, which have replacement refillable pod units.

If you have an Elfa pod kit, you can buy pre-filled replacement pods. This eliminates the need to change coils and e-liquids as you just need to screw in the new flavored pods. However, these kits cannot be filled with any juice of your choice, so they are not very popular right now.

Vaping Style

There are three main vaping styles: mouth-to-lung (MTL) that feels like smoking a cigarette, restricted-direct-to-lung (RDL) for better flavors, and direct-to-lung (DTL) for dense clouds and intensified flavors. When it comes to the vape experience, whether you use coils only or full replacement pods doesn’t affect the different vaping styles much. This is because when you replace the entire pod cartridge, you’re essentially replacing the coil too, just like when you change the coil in a reusable pod cartridge.
