Vaporesso releases the podstick - an all in one style vape pen with a mesh (or CCELL) refillable pod perched at the top.
The Vaporesso Podstick is a compact, AIO style, push to fire vape pod kit with amazing flavor and enjoyable draw. It is roughly the diameter of a standard size cigar and is a bit bigger than width of a hand, around 5".
The kit comes with two pod types, one Ccell (ceramic) and one mesh style pod.
The CCell is perfect for 25mg nic salts and has a pleasant, medium tier mouth to lung draw that isn't too tight and not loose. The vapor has great, clean flavor and is warm. For the best flavor possible the pod needs a bit of a break in period, about half a tank or so.
The mesh pod is well suited to 6mg vape juice and again has great flavor but has more vapor production with a loose mouth to lung to tight, restricted direct lung draw.
One of the coolest things about the Podstick is the fill method. It looks pretty much like the standard pod but the top slides back to reveal the spring loaded, push to fill mechanism. This type of fill port is perfect for unicorn or plastic stem style vape juice bottles. If you use glass stems, Vaporesso included a pocket sized, 10ml bottle that is easy to fill.
The standard sized, built in mouth piece is right above the coil which is perfect for max flavor but it seems like Vaporesso missed an opportunity for lots of different styles of replaceable coils like those offered by their amazing EUC coil line instead of just two types of disposable pods.
Vaporesso built the Podstick around the OMNI mini chipset, which is pretty good. It has lots of protections and is smart enough to detect your coil type.
The Podstick has a well placed, small but pronounced firing button with a deep press and a LED ring indicator surrounding it. When firing the device, the colored light ring indicates the current wattage level. There are three power level choices that vary depending on which pod you are using:
Right below the firing button is a 5 level LED light power indicator. Each light represents roughly 20% available power. Having a five level indicator gives you a far better idea of how close you are to drained than just green, yellow, red. This is a very nice feature and allows you to adjust your vaping accordingly without getting stuck with no power before the end of the day.
The Podstick has a 900mAh built in battery, which is about 30% more capacity that most pod devices. It has 1A pass through USB charging and takes about an hour to charge from drained to full.
If you are having trouble making it to the end of the day with the mesh pods, try using the CCell pods with a 25mg nic salt. You will get a significant amount more time out of the device. If nic salts are too strong for your needs, the ccell can take standard juice but you may need to thin the juice a bit to get better flow.
Overall, the Podstick is quite fantastic! You can get a very enjoyable, full flavor, portable, all day vape with enough features to make the vape your own.
