The Vype ePod is one of many closed e-cigarette models. They are all similar, but display noteworthy differences, and most importantly varying levels of performance. Below is a comparison to give you an idea.
Quality and effectiveness
Myblu from Blu: rating: 2/5
With its regular tank leakages, slow activation process, poor quality refills, bland flavours and very weak hit, we were not at all impressed with the MyBlu.
Juul from Juul Labs: rating: 2.5/5
The well-executed Juul offers added value, but has downsides such as a limited battery life, disappointing flavour rendering, and a hit that is much too weak. Quite plainly, an ineffective pod.
ePod – Vype: rating: 3.1/5
The ePod offers a good battery life, but the makeshift assembly of the tank on the battery, the mediocre flavours and hit make this pod ineffective and unsatisfactory.
Bō Gen 2 from Bō Vaping: rating: 4/5
The Bō Gen 2 is well-executed and effective. The flavours are pleasant and the hit satisfactory. With no leakage and high-quality finishes, this is a very good product in this category
KoddoPod Nano from KoddoPod: rating: 4.5/5
With a high-quality design, the KoddoPod Nano does not leak and offers pleasant flavours with a dense vapour. The hit is somewhat light, but pleasant nonetheless for everyday use.
Alfapod from Alfatech: rating: 4.5/5
With a high-quality finish, the Alfapod offers a superb vaping experience with a dense vapour, a pleasant airflow, and a hit in keeping with the nicotine content. An outstanding, pleasant, high-performance pod.
Costs of use
Based on the average prices recorded in Europe
Paradoxically, the costs of use are inversely proportional to the results of our tests. Those with the poorest performances are also the most expensive. The Juul is way ahead with €4.25 per millilitre of e-liquid, followed by the ePod with €2.85 per millilitre, then Myblu with €2.33, and the Alfapod with €1.82 and the Koddopod with €1.65, also per 1 ml of liquid.
The difference is €2.60 per millilitre between the least expensive and the most expensive. That may not seem like much, but over one year represents a difference of €949 for a consumption of one millilitre per day. For someone who vapes 4 ml per day, the annual cost of the Juul is €3,796 more than the Koddopod. Some food for thought in any case.
