When Should I Replace My Vape Pod?

Making the change from cigarettes to vaping can be a challenge, but it’s worth it. And with the nzo starter kit, it’s never been easier to make the switch.

If you’re new to vaping, there's some important lessons you need to learn. Most importantly it is when you should change your vape pod to avoid damaging your device.

When you change your pod is entirely down to you. If you’re all about flavour, then you may like to change your pod at the first sign of a change. If you’re a little less scrupulous, then you may want to carry on for a little bit longer.

Here, we’ve made a list of signs that you should consider changing your pod.

 

Your Vape Tastes Burnt


The clearest sign you’ll get that your pod needs changing is a change in taste. This could just be that you can’t taste any flavour or, it could be more obvious.

If you take a hit of your vape and you find it tastes stale or burnt, then it’s definitely time for a change. The burnt taste is similar to what you’d taste if you were still smoking cigarettes. The worse the taste, the emptier the pod.

 

Vape Juice Getting Darker


Another way to tell if your pod is in need of replacing is a change in colour of the liquid. Typically, when a vape liquid comes into contact with air (known as oxidisation) it will become darker.

A darker colour liquid isn’t an immediate need for a change, but if you find that the flavour has changed and the liquid looks more like a sludge-colour, then it's definitely time to replace your pod.

A change in colour could also mean your coil is getting old. For pod devices like nzo, this will simply require you to replace the pod with a fresh one. Our nzo pods have the coil inbuilt in them, so you don’t need to worry about replacing them!

If you use a pen device and you notice your vape juice has become discoloured, we recommend emptying the tank, changing the coil and then replenishing the tank with fresh liquid.

 

Dry Vape Hits


At times you may notice your vape is producing less vapour than usual, or you’ll try and take a puff just to be left coughing and spluttering.

This is known as a dry hit.

Dry hits are a very clear sign that it’s time to change your vape pod. When you’re experiencing dry hits, it’s best to replace your pod as soon as possible to avoid any damage being done to your vape device.

If it’s time to change your pod or if you just fancied shaking it up, we have a wide variety of pods in stock now.
