Best Pod Kit For Nic Salts

With nicotine salts, it’s the best of both worlds for e-cigarette users. You don’t have to vape as often as you would with freebase nicotine e-liquids. However, you still get a stronger delivery of nicotine thanks to the addition of benzoic acid which naturally balances the PH level to create a smoother throat hit. As it continues to take the industry by storm, the development of more nic salt e-liquids and compatible devices poses the question - which is the best pod kit for nic salts? Here are our picks for 2021 to date, which we will add to throughout the year. First up, we have the pre-filled category and in particular, disposables - the latest nic salt craze!


Top 5 Refillable Nic Salt Pod Kits

Innokin MVP

Sleek, elegant and stylish with a stylish practical design, the Innokin MVP looks good in the hand and is easy to grip while vaping. And most importantly, it’s an affordable refillable pod kit option under £10 that’s compatible with nic salts.

This way you can top up with your chosen nic juice with no qualms. Featuring a singular button, it’s easy to activate and operate for no-fuss vaping. The dual power mode ensures fixed wattages of 11W or 12.5W so you have less chance of burning your coils or overheating the nic salt vape juice. Filling up is easy with a side fill port and other features such as optimised airflow and the choice to auto-inhale too is a welcome one whatever your level of vaping.

VOOPOO VMate

A low-wattage device from popular brand Voopoo that’s well-liked by vapers for its simplicity, smart design and conventional refillable pods. You can get two different kinds of replacement pods - either with a 0.7 Ohm mesh coil which is great for flavour or a higher resistance 1.2 Ohm Gene Helix coil which is the best for nic salts. You can then add your nic salt e-liquids by filling via the side port. The device itself has a built-in 900mAh battery, which is again auto-inhale and suits former smokers perfectly.

Uwell Caliburn A2

Vapers in some cases find, especially when starting with e-cigarettes, that they don’t get quite the same hit as cigarettes. However, with the introduction of nic salts, this all changed. More nicotine content but less needed with each vape, with a much smoother transition.

The Uwell Caliburn A2 pod Kit is one of those vape kits, with a generous 550mAh battery size but most importantly the style and efficient system, utilising the full power of nic salts. You can see the levels of your nic salts through the conveniently placed e-liquid window below the mouthpiece. The 0.9 Ohm MTL coil is tailored for nic salt vaping and filling e-liquids is a simple switch.

VOOPOO Vinci 2

Nic salt fanatics can’t look past the Voopoo Vinci 2. It’s a stylish auto-inhale device with a comfortable mouthpiece for MTL vaping and DTL too. For vapers who started off with disposables, you can transition over with a similar high strength nic salt 10ml e-liquid in the Vinci 2 before moving on to a lower strength high VG vape juice later.

The airflow can be adjusted and it supports all the PnP coils so you can mix and match with your nic salts. It also provides a 1500mAh battery capacity, up to 50W of power and lots of safety functions to keep your device in top condition.

Smok Nord 4

Last on the list of refillables we have a popular device from Smok, the Nord 4, which is as versatile as it comes for vaping not just nic salts but also high VG e-liquids if you want to spread your wings. It offers a variety of functions and features to support nicotine salt enthusiasts and DTL vaping too. For the best performance with nic salts, you’ll want to vape at a low wattage and use one of the high resistance coils.

This device fires up to 80W which you can adjust to get the right inhalation from your nic salts and the controllable airflow to match. Because of the large 2000mAh battery too, it’s a device you can use for some time, whether you change e-liquid, power output or inhalation technique from mouth to lung to direct lung or back.


Top 5 Pre-Filled Nic Salt Pod Kits

Elf Bar Mate 500

A brand that needs no introduction, Elf Bar has been killing it in the disposable industry for a few years now. Branching out slowly into the prefilled pod market, the Elf Bar Mate 500 took the world by storm - providing the vaping industry with simplistic magnetically attached nic salt pods. The P1 leak-free pods that you can purchase alongside the kit are available in the same range of flavours as the disposables with a thin curved mouthpiece which boasts a fine mouth-to-lung draw.

Voom Pod Starter Kit

Next, we have pre-filled kit options where you can keep the vape and only dispose of the prefilled pod, which works out as a cheaper option long-term. Regarding the Voom, you have a very stylish MTL kit available in gold or black for routine vaping on the go. It features a built-in 320mAh battery that comes with a USB charger and only takes an hour to fully charge. With 1.2ml of e-liquid, it’s not the max of 2ml TPD regulations allow but the magnetic nic salt pods are so easy to remove and replace that it doesn’t necessarily matter. Simply carry around a few spares in flavours such as flavours like Tobacco and Ice Strawberry. Alternatively, you can pick up some empty refillable and add your nic salt e-liquid.

Elf Bar Elfa Kit

The Elfa is the next in line from the Elf Bar collection. It bears an uncanny resemblance to the popular Elf Bar Mate 500 we listed above but it’s a longer and thinner device. A key difference is a slightly wider mouthpiece for a looser MTL draw using nic salts.

Both of the kits create that ideal entry-level beginner-friendly nic salt option because of the low wattage, lack of buttons you need to press and the affordable price they’re set at. You get roughly 600 puffs per Elfa pod similar to the disposable ranges so it’s plenty to last you throughout the day and beyond.

Vype Pen

Vype, the US brand now making waves in the vaping industry with a change of name to Vuse, offers a practical option with the Vype ePod starter kit. Ideal for former smokers or as a backup, its simple ergonomic design is matched by the delicious nic salt flavoured pods such as Tropical Mango and Very Berry.

The ePod kit has a 1.9ml pod capacity and 350mAh battery which you charge via the USB. Affordable, puff-activated and requiring no set-up, it’s a fantastic starter kit for anyone wanting to get into vaping after quitting smoking.

iQ Air Vape Kit

Another slim e-cigarette kit which makes a great companion for easy vaping on the go. The nic salt pods that come with the device offer high mouth-to-lung resistance at 1.8 Ohms. The vape pen provides slightly less battery power than the others on the list at 200mAh so you might need to carry your charger around with you depending on how much you vape. The wattage is fixed so you don’t need to worry about any adjustments and 3.7 volts are generated through the device. You have three different nic salt pods in Tobacco, Menthol and Strawberry flavour so you can go for sweet or traditional options depending on personal preference. Each pod is 2% nic salt, so that’s the maximum strength for a smooth vape.


Whichever vape kit you go for, rest assured the delivery of nic salt will be on point if you keep your settings low. For smokers, it's the perfect way to start your vaping journey as it mimics smoking cigarettes in many ways. Meanwhile, more advanced vapers may also appreciate it if they feel like freebase nicotine is not strong enough and find it hard to resist cigarettes.
