Pod vapes/pod systems are vape devices that come in two parts: a battery and pod. These clip together to create a single device. Pod systems come with both refillable and single use pods. They have proved popular because they combine convenience and ease of use with great performance for an often compact device.
Pod vapes such as the Smok Thiner are popular with new vapers and people who are looking for a throat hit similar to that of a cigarette. More experienced vapers often use them as a back-up, as they combine a discrete device that can be used in the office with satisfying performance for their size.
Pod systems are broadly split into two types - those that use single-use pods and those that use refillable pods. Single-use pods come pre-filled with e-liquid and are disposed of after the e-liquid has been used up. An example of this is the upcoming Hexa Pro. These systems are ideal for people who don’t want the hassle of having to fill pods with e-liquid or change coils.
Refillable pod systems usually come empty, and are filled by the user with e-liquid which is bought separately. Examples of these include the Aspire PockeX Box. These are great for people who want to use different e-liquids or who are looking for a more economical way to vape.
Originally pod vapes were very simple, low powered devices that were primarily suitable for beginners. In contrast, mod kits are usually larger, higher powered devices that often have more advanced features suitable for more experienced users.
Pod mods are a cross between the two. They retain the convenient, click-in-place, design of a pod system though are often larger, provide more power and have more advanced features than a standard pod device. Some pod mod systems are also powered by a replaceable battery.
Nicotine containing products are addictive and are not recommended for non-smokers, persons who are allergic/sensitive to nicotine; pregnant or breast-feeding women; persons who should avoid using nicotine products for medical reasons; or persons with an unstable heart condition, severe hypertension or diabetes. Please keep e-liquid and nicotine containing products out of reach of children and pets.

To our website you look under 18.
So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.
You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.
Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.
On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!
Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).
(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )
How your data is used
We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)
Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.
Why do we check age?
As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.
This is against both our company policy and the law.
And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.
