Manufacturers are showing they have faith in pod

Pods are a new hardware category which aims to fill the gap in the U.S. market between the traditional products on offer. In this March 2017 report, we see that the key concept is to close the gap between easy-to-use products and high-performance ones: by improving the performance of lower-end products, and/or simplifying usability of high performing ones.
There is a divide in the category between higher power “pod mod” products with larger pre-filled pods, and lower power pods which offer extreme compactness. Pod hardware manufacturers are collaborating with well-known e-liquid manufacturers, with benefits for both sides.

The directories to a large extent are populated with these stores, however we cleaned the data of stores which were clearly tobacconists or other non-specialist stores.

The number of products on the U.S. e-cigarette market will contract sharply after the new deeming regulations come into full effect, according to their architect the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – and its predictions suggest a sudden slowdown in innovation too.

As the use of e-cigarettes has spread, so has the number of fires started by them. But while this has raised some concerns and generated some headlines, these incidents form a small proportion of fires overall, and the risk comes mostly from poor-quality and counterfeit batteries – hazards that could be eliminated with improved regulation and consumer education.
