Best Pod Mod 2019
The Lost Vape Orion was regarded the best pod mod of last year. The expensive price of this nice looking pod mod with excellent vaping performance was, however, a turn off for many. If you, dear vaper, are one of those that do not want to spend almost $80 on a pod mod, then this is the right article for you!
Now in 2019, many vape manufacturers have introduced quite a few cheaper alternatives to the Lost Vape Orion that won’t leave you with empty pockets. To help you find a great alternative to the Lost Vape Orion at a much lower price, we’ve compiled this list.
Before diving into our list, we would like to remind you that all the pod mods listed on this page have already been carefully tested by the well-trained and experienced vapers from Heaven Gifts, the leading vape device supplier across the world, to make sure they are not only enjoy a very affordable price, but also can bring your vaping experience to another level.
Without further ado, here comes our list of the best pod mod sold at an affordable price in 2019.
Best Pod Mod – 1. Geekvape Frenzy
The Frenzy Pod Kit is the first pod mod released by the famous vape manufacturer Geekvape. This brand-new portable pod is beautifully crafted in zinc alloy and resin. This is possibly your best choice if you are not willing to spend more than 35$. Let us tell you that what Geekvape offers for this price is a pretty good deal: 950 mAh built-in battery, smart AS Micro Chipset and multiple safety protections.
The Geekvape Frenzy Pod Kit has 2 different types of coils (both included in the kit so you can try them). The 0.7 ohm NS mesh coil works in power mode at 2.4V, while the 1.2 NS mesh coils (made in SS316L) works in TC mode to optimize the flavor. The AS chipset switches between these two modes depending on which coil you pop in, so you don’t have to worry about any adjustment.
Another big pro for the Frenzy Pod Kit is the visible adjustable airflow and the magnetic connection. Just so handy! So for all these reasons, we strongly recommend you giving the Frenzy a chance if you are looking for an Orion-like pod mod without spending too much.

Vaping is not only a profession for me but also a passion. I quit smoking thanks to vaping almost 3 years ago. I helped many smokers to switch to vaping since as I am convinced vaping is a much healhier alternative to tobbaco smoking.
