How to Setup Prefilled Pod Vape Kits

Prefilled pod systems are very easy to set up and maintain. You have a rechargeable battery device with a USB-C port for quick recharge, which is simple and straightforward. Then you have a prefilled pod which has to be activated before use.

The prefilled pod is what causes a bit of trouble for some people. Most pods will have stickers and a push or pull action to activate the pod. ‘Pod activation’ basically just means letting the e-liquid reach the coil inside the pod. Before activation, they’re separated to keep the coil fresh.

After activation, the pod has to be left to prime for around 5 minutes, and then it’s ready to go into the device for a vaping session. Pods will connect to the device magnetically for a seamless connection and will look just like a regular disposable for familiarity.

Here’s a step-by-step activation guide on a couple of different styles of prefilled pods.

About the Rechargeable Battery Device

The rechargeable battery device is the power behind your vaping experience. It powers the coil within the pod, allowing it to vaporise the e-liquid. Most prefilled pod systems will come with batteries between 400mAh to 1000mAh. The SKE Crystal Plus comes with a 400mAh battery, which should last you a whole day on a full charge.

This device is very compact and sleek to make it look just like the popular SKE Crystal Bar. Familiarity is important when venturing into new territories, so while upgrading your vaping experience, you’re also staying within your comfort zone.

About the Prefilled Vape Pods

The prefilled pod is the component that takes the vape kit a step above disposables and elevates the vaping experience. Most prefilled pods, like the SKE Crystal Prefilled Vape Pods, will come with 2ml of nicotine salt e-liquid in a 20mg nicotine strength. This is the same as what you would get in a regular single-use disposable, meaning that this singular pod can deliver up to 600 puffs.

You can also get your favourite disposable vape flavours like Blueberry Sour Raspberry, and Watermelon Ice. So you can achieve the same disposable vape experience while also opting for a more cost-effective vaping option.

The Benefits of Prefilled Pod Vape Kits

From what we have already covered about prefilled pod kits, I think you can already see some clear benefits that they provide that disposables do not. 

Let’s get into those in some more detail.

Rechargeable Battery Device

The battery device is rechargeable, whereas most disposables aren’t. This reduces the environmental impact of battery waste, which has increased due to the popularity of disposables. By switching to these rechargeable pod kits, you’re opting for a more eco-friendly device that you don’t have to dispose of.

Replaceable Prefilled Pods

The prefilled pods that you use with the battery device offer the same experience as disposables for less. They’re cost-effective, and you can get the same flavours and nicotine strength that you’re used to from your favourite brands.

Simple and Hassle-Free

Prefilled pod kits offer the simplest way to enjoy an elevated vaping experience after disposables. It’s a straightforward activation process with minimal maintenance involved. There’s no need for e-liquid refilling or coil replacements; prefilled pods offer an all-in-one, smooth vaping experience.

Trusted Market Leaders

Your favourite disposable vape brands have embarked on a new venture into the pod kits sector, with the likes of Lost Mary, Elf Bar and SKE. They have created high-quality devices that deliver an elevated vaping experience with the same delicious e-liquids and styles to match your preferences.

Try Out Refillable Options

Devices like SKE Crystal Plus and Elf Bar Mate 500 double as refillable pod vape kits. They have pod options that are empty and refillable, allowing you to use your own nic salts or freebase e-liquids in any flavour and nicotine strength, with multiple refills for longer usage than a pre-filled pod.

The SKE Crystal Plus Refillable Pods and the Elf Bar Mate 500 Refillable Pods are very useful alternatives to their prefilled counterparts. Easy to use and maintain, they open up an endless world of e-liquid choices, both flavours and strengths, allowing you to explore your vaping style further and help you manage your nicotine intake.
