Button activated pod kits are very easy to use and maintain, it is for this reason that they have remained popular with vapers of all experience levels.
The simpler versions of these kits feature single button operation, which allows them to be used easily. The button can also be used to lock the device making it safer to travel with. The more advanced kits will feature controls that allow the performance of the kit to be altered to suit your needs or control more complex modes such as variable wattage.
As the name suggests, these pod kits are activated by using a button. A classic design that has remained popular, they are simple to use and are recommended to vapers of all experience levels. The option to lock this type of kit makes them much safer to travel with, as it stops the device from accidentally firing when in a pocket or bag.
At their simplest, there are kits that can be activated and locked at the push of a button. These single button kits come highly recommended for both beginner vaper and first-time switchers. For the more advanced, there are pod kits that feature Variable Wattage to control power output for your ideal level of vapour production.
Thanks to their growing popularity, you’ll now find button activated kits available that use either prefilled or refillable pods, as well as a small number that use both. Prefilled kits are the simpler option and their pods won’t require refilling, instead, when the e-liquid inside each is used up they can be replaced with another.
Refillable pods, on the other hand, can be filled with an e-liquid of your choice. Not only is this more cost-effective, but it also gives you the opportunity to experiment with different flavours and nicotine strengths - to find a vape that suits you best. If this sounds like too much effort, we’d recommend you stick with a prefilled option.
Inhale activated kits can not start producing vapour until you start inhaling, this means you sometimes experience a bit of lag. If you use a button-activated kit you can push the button before you inhale giving the kit time to power up. This makes these types of kit very useful, especially if you plan to vape at higher wattages.
Inhale activated kits can offer a more natural feel though. The majority of them have been designed for MTL (Mouth To Lung) vaping and produce a discreet amount of vapour, the inhale activation and vaping style means they deliver a puff that’s similar to a cigarette and this may suit your more. This is especially true for new vapers.
That being said inhale activated pod kits can be a bit limited in that they largely only support MTL vaping, if you’re looking for increased vapour production with your pod then you will probably be better off choosing a button-activated sub ohm pod kit. Even if you’re still looking for discreet vapour production, plenty of MTL button-activated kits are available.
There’s plenty of kits to choose from and they offer not only a great introduction to vaping, but also the opportunity to find a kit that suits your vaping style.
