Vaping produces an aerosol that contains nicotine, which can harm brain development and cause addiction. It also contains acrolein, diacetyl, and other harmful chemicals. Some of these chemicals can damage your lungs and narrow the tubes that bring air in and out of your lungs.
These chemicals can also lead to bronchiolitis obliterans, or popcorn lung. This is a serious lung injury that can be fatal.
Pod systems are an excellent choice for new vapers or vapers looking for a clean and quick experience. They are simple to use and affordable. The initial investment is much lower than more advanced vapor devices and maintaining them costs less, too. Pods are easy to refill and can be replaced as needed. This can save smokers hundreds of pounds a month.
They are best suited for mouth to lung (MTL) vaping, but can also be used by experienced vapers as a backup or secondary device. Pods can be either refillable or pre-filled and come in a wide range of sizes and styles to suit your vaping preferences.
Pods are powered by an integrated battery that heats the coil inside to vaporise the E-Liquid, producing vapour that is inhaled through the mouthpiece. They are usually draw-activated so you don’t have to press a button to activate the device like you do with other cigalikes and traditional pens.
Closed pod devices
Closed pod systems work with cartridges which are pre-filled with E-Liquid, and they just snap right into the device. These hassle-free devices don’t require an atomiser, coil or wick and are much more leak resistant than other larger vaping devices.
The simple design and portability of closed pod devices makes them ideal for vapers who want a convenient smoke-free experience on nights out, festivals and getaways. Their smaller size means you can slip them in a pocket, without having to carry bulky kit or vaping paraphernalia around.
Closed pod systems have also proven popular for those who are new to vaping, as the action of inhaling is similar to that of smoking, which helps make the switch to a smoke-free lifestyle easier. At RelevantVapes, we offer a wide range of closed pods from top brands, including the IQOS device which heats real tobacco sticks to provide a satisfying, smooth and rich flavour that delivers a genuine nicotine hit.
Open pod devices
Open pod systems allow you to use any salt nicotine e-liquid on the market instead of being limited to the pre-filled pods that the manufacturer offers. This can help you to save money and find your favourite vape juice. This type of pod device is a good choice for new vapers who want to make the switch from smoking and need a simple, easy-to-use product that will be convenient on a daily basis.
Pod mods feature a draw-activated system and a clear window in the pod that makes it easy to see your vapor level. They are small, lightweight and very discreet. Some feature adjustable airflow and a power dial, while others are more straightforward and use a button to click in a pod and a draw-activated system for activation. Most of them are designed with a higher Ohm coil, producing fewer clouds when exhaling and making them very discreet in public. They also usually have a lower temperature range, which means that they produce less heat.
Vapor devices (also known as e-cigarettes) use a battery-powered device to heat a liquid into an aerosol that is inhaled into the lungs. The liquid is called e-liquid or vape juice. It may contain nicotine, propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin, other chemicals, and flavours. Nicotine is addictive and can cause a range of health problems, including respiratory disease, such as bronchiolitis obliterans, or popcorn lung. It can also cause heart disease, and is unsafe for children.
The RF model had an overall prediction accuracy of 66%. The main reason for misclassification was that one product may relate to several flavour categories, for example, when an e-liquid contains ingredients with flavour descriptions that are related to multiple flavour categories. For these products, the RF model assigned them to the category with the second highest probability. For a detailed overview of the classification results, see online supplementary table S2. Only five flavourings were added to more than 10% of the e-liquids in each of the flavour categories.
