RPM stands for Real Pod Mod. The Smok RPM40 certainly fit the bill. With two compatible cores, one for Smok Nord Coils and the other for Smok RPM coils, it quickly proved to be one of the most versatile vape pod kits on the market.

Since the launch of the RPM40, an ever increasing list of Smok vape pods that are compatible with RPM coils have been churned out. And the reason behind this is clear. They are a great design and substantial enough in size to allow a wide-variety of performance envelopes.

The Smok Pozz X, Smok RPM80, Fetch, Fetch Pro and Smok Nord 2 all have a pod that is compatible with the Smok RPM pods.

Every adult vaper should be able to find a vape pod that is a perfect fit. It just comes down to knowing what to look for. As a basic rule of thumb, vape pods and coils with a resistance of over an ohm are ideally for nic salts. A subohm coils and pods are designed for high-VG ejuices. To make matters easier, most manufacturers label have at least one pod for both types of vape juice.

We recently took a broad look at the best vape pods for regular eliquids. The reason for this is simple. Regular eliquids remain popular and have lower nicotine options than nic salts. But adult vapers in general gravitate towards devices that are easiest to use and maintain. Vape pods fit the bill and this is why these systems, generally associated with salt nic, offer a coil or pod option designed for high-VG ejuices that use regular nicotine.
Vape pods come in all shapes and sizes. Some require the entire pod be replaced when the coil has reached the end of its days and others just need the coil swapped out. Today we are looking the latter, as the RPM coil is removed from the pod when it has been used up but the pod itself is reusable.


The swappable Smok RPM coils come in several designs. Each has an express purpose and several are outstanding options for vapers who stick to high-VG eliquids with regular nicotine. A key attribute of the devices which use the RPM coils is that they have adjustable wattage and an output of at least 40w. This is more than sufficient for vaping high-VG eliquids and producing sizeable vapor clouds.

Any device that is compatible with Smok RPM coils can be adapted to high-VG ejuices with regular nicotine. All you need to do is pop in a Smok RPM Mesh 0.4ohm coil. A coil that operates best at 25w, fast ramp up speed, sharp flavors and great vapor production is the name of the game with this RPM coil. The larger eliquid ports allow it to rip through even the thickest eliquids with no problems. If you want a vape pod is optimized for high-VG eliquids, any Smok device equipped with the Smok RPM Mesh 0.4ohm coil will fit the bill perfectly.

The Smok RPM Triple Coil 0.6ohms is another great coil for fans of high-VG eliquids and a great choice for vapers who prefer regular nicotine ejuice. This coil is optimized to operate at 20w and has excellent longevity. The vapor production and flavor are top notch, as it was designed from the ground up to handle regular eliquids and is a large enough to fit a full triple coil design within the framework of a refillable vape pod kit.

Despite having lower resistance than its subohm stablemates, the Smok MTL Mesh 0.3ohm coil has a more restrictive draw and is designed for mouth-to-lung vaping. It also operates at lower wattage, with 15watts recommended. A much smaller design than the RPM Mesh 0.4ohms, this is an extremely efficient coil. It does not require as much power or use as much eliquids. But it still has the chops to handle high-VG eliquids and the coil of choice for vapers who prefer a mouth-to-lung over a direct-to-lung vaping experience but prefer to use regular freebase nicotine instead of nic salts.
