How Long Do BO Pods Last?
Closed pod systems are renowned for their convenience and no-nonsense design. They offer pre-filled pods that allow you to easily snap in your favorite flavour for immediate, mess-free vaping.
Boasting a simple yet effective design, the BO closed pod system has streamlined the vaping experience for users around the world. BO’s devotion to building an ergonomic system has led them to enhance the longevity of their devices, making them a reliable and economical competitor on the vaping market.
What is BO Vaping?
The BO Vaping brand is the epitome of French elegance. Their devices are lightweight, beginner-friendly and come with a lush leather device pouch for extra durability and a luxe touch. They are the ideal choice for those seeking a discrete vaping experience.
BO offers 2 main closed system pods: The BO One and BO Plus. Although they differ in style and character, they both deliver on performance.
How Long Do BO Pods Last?
BO pods have an industry average 1.5ml e-liquid capacity, which equates to roughly 420 puffs or up to 2 days of use for the average smoker/ vaper. This is more than double the capacity of many of its competitors. The pods come in either a single pod packet or 3-pod packet. If you find yourself burning through pod after pod, you might benefit from the increased e-liquid capacity of BO pods.
The BO Plus device houses a formidable 800mAh battery. It conveniently charges in just 45 minutes and gives you 2 to 3 days of use from a full charge, making it one of the longest-lasting on the market. This is perfect for heavy smokers who have a high demand for frequent doses of nicotine.
The BO One device is a more compact unit containing a 380mAh battery that will last a full day off a single charge. This is standard for a device of its stature and is more than enough vaping time for the light to average user. And don’t let the smaller battery fool you. So confident are developers in the performance of the BO One device, that they offer a lifetime warranty with its purchase.
As with all pods however, individual vaping habits also factor into how long your BO pod will last.
For example, learning to vape effectively can result in reduced wastage. If you are new to vaping, it can take some time to learn to do so efficiently. The BO Plus device features an LED indicator, which discloses your draw strength as you vape. Furthermore, all BO devices are draw-activated, meaning the using the device straight out of the box is easy!
Everything from draw length and vaping frequency can hugely influence the lifespan of your pods and slight adjustments to these habits can be beneficial to your BO pod’s longevity.
The Benefits of Nicotine Salts
The technology behind vaping is constantly evolving, with nicotine salts being the latest invention. In essence, nicotine salts are pure nicotine blended with benzoic acid. This simple addition dramatically boosts the benefits available to users. These include the delivery of a quicker, smoother throat hit and most importantly, a higher nicotine concentration.
Higher Nicotine Dosage
Making the switch from smoking to vaping can be a grueling journey. For 'pack a day' smokers, the nicotine concentration in freebase e-liquids is often too low and misses the mark, leaving unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
BO pods use a 5% nicotine salt-based e-liquid, which delivers a higher nicotine concentration. This makes BO pods an ideal choice for ex-smokers, as it produces a similar hit to tobacco cigarettes.
The more well-suited your nicotine concentration, the less you'll need to vape throughout the day. It's this direct reduction in vaping frequency that can extend the life of your BO pods.
Some of the signs that you are on too low a dose of nicotine include:
- Taking more than 5 puffs per vaping session
- Needing to take several puffs in rapid succession to satisfy your nicotine craving
BO advises ex-smokers to start with a high nicotine concentration and then slowly reduce levels to reach the desired goal. BO offers lower traditional nicotine strengths for average and social vapers: 0mg/ml (i.e. nicotine-free) and 30mg/mL
Safely Storing Your Pods
Something as simple as correct pod storage and care can influence the lifespan of your BO pod. Yet it’s these simple details that are often overlooked.
BO encourages users to keep their pods in a cool, dry environment, out of direct sunlight. Your BO device can be cleaned with a dry cloth or a cotton budwith rubbing alcohol for the internal metal parts.
By following these guidelines, you can keep your device in good working order for longer.
Refilling Your Pods
As with other closed pod systems, BO closed system pods are disposable and should not be refilled.
