Prefilled pod vape devices stand between the disposable vapes and the more complex refillable devices as the perfect middle point between straightforward usability and long-term use.
Precisely as its name indicates, prefilled pod vapes make use of pod cartridges that are already filled with a particular flavour or brand of nicotine salt eLiquid. Unlike disposable pod vapes, you do not throw the whole device away once you run out of vape juice.

Prefilled pod vapes keep the simplicity and easy-to-use approach of disposable vapes but without the wastefulness, making it a viable alternative for users who seek a broader range of flavours without the maintenance requirements of refillable pods.
