A simple yet effective set of flavours that you'll keep on returning to.
JUUL pods (or JUULpods as they are known), are the heart of any JUUL e-cig. But how good are they? And can these popular pods hold up against the competition? Read on to find out more!
The JUUL pods look quite unassuming at first glance, however if you look closer, they are actually quite intricate. A well designed top cap merges effortlessly with the battery to create a ‘diamond-like’ window to view the remaining e-liquid.
Inside, you can see two wicks near the bottom of the pod, allowing you to use up all liquid inside. There are also gold coloured connections at the base, which helps to keep the power undisturbed while in use.
The JUULpods certainly appear to be high quality, and as far as prefilled pods go, they definitely look the part.
The JUUL device is very small compared to other units on the market. But it really doesn’t seem to have had much of an impact when it comes to performance. The JUUL pods manage to produce ample amounts of vapour, and I was impressed with the flavour as well.
JUUL pods are available in 6 flavours; Berry, Golden Tobacco, Mango, Menthol, Mint and Rich Tobacco. Each one has its own unique experience, but my personal favourites ended up being Berry and Mango. I’m a big fan of fruity flavours and these hit the spot while I was out and about.
For the traditionalists, the Rich Tobacco, Menthol and Golden Tobacco would all make great alternatives to smoking, and replicate those flavours well.
The JUULpods have a 0.7ml capacity which is quite low, however thanks to the nic salt e-liquid inside, they last longer than you might think. I used roughly 2 per day, but considering I vape over 10ml standard e-liquid in a day, that’s good going.
I found that the pods wicked e-liquid evenly and consistently, right up until they are empty. This is a positive as I have used some before that could dry burn with consistent usage, or might leave behind liquid that simply doesn’t get used up due to the bad wicking design.
In short, the JUUL pods performed really well for the small size, and with the current set of flavours, there is an option to suit anyone.
Ease Of Use
JUUL Pods are one of the easiest vaping items to use. They are prefilled and require no coil changes, or any kind of set up for that matter.
All you have to do is remove a pod, take off the bottom cap and insert into the JUUL battery. A viewing window can be seen which lets you keep tabs on remaining liquid, which is handy.
You don’t even have to press any buttons as the battery is automatically activated. This makes the JUUL pods one of the easiest to use vaping products out there. For people who still smoke, this is a great, uncomplicated alternative.
There really isn’t much more to say here! If you value easy to use e-cigs, the JUUL pods surely have what you’re after.
JUULpods are admittedly not the cheapest option out there. At £8.49 per pack on our website (£10.99 elsewhere!), there are cheaper alternatives available. However none of them quite offer the same simplicity as JUUL.
With JUUL pods, you know they are very high quality, and are catered purely to keep smokers away from cigarettes. The selection of flavours, specially formulated nic salt e-liquid and compact size all stand out.
You can also grab a JUUL Pod subscription, which gives you 12 packs of your choice, delivered straight to your door for £84.99 per month. This works out at just £7.08 per pack!
JUUL pods are well suited for use by new or existing vapers. If you are new to vaping, they are simple to use and come with an array of familiar flavours. The nic salt e-liquid formulation also helps to closely mimic the sensation of smoking.
If, like me you are an existing vaper, then you will find these convenient to carry around, without having to take out your regular e-cig. I found myself using JUUL pods on days out, as I just didn’t want to carry around anything big and bulky.
No matter what vaping stage you are at, JUUL pods could fill a niche you didn’t realise existed before.
I genuinely enjoyed using the JUUL pods. Prefilled pods are not my usual go-to, but I have warmed to the idea a lot more now. Thanks to the ease of use, great tasting flavours and portability, I found myself reaching for these way more often than I thought I would.
There is a reason why JUUL has been so successful. It’s clear that considerable time and effort has been put into the development and design of its product. After spending my own time with the JUUL pods I can say, with certainty, that they have a new fan.
