Juul Vapor Intro
The Juul is a very simple to use e-cigarette/pod vape that is aimed towards new vapers who want something that resembles a cig-a-like in terms of size and weight. It can also be used by more experienced vapers who are looking for a stealth vape, given the Juul’s minuscule size. This is not a vape for the cloud or flavor chasers amongst you!
The Juul was sent to us free of charge by Juul Vapor for review.
About the Juul
The Juul is barely 9cm long and 1.5cm in width. It’s basically the size of a long USB stick and weighs about the same! It terms or portability it’s ideal for putting in your pocket and taking around with you.
The Juul comes with 4 different flavor pods that are easily inserted into the device. You get 4 pods: Miint, Fruut, Bruule and Tabaac. You also get a magnetic USB charging device and a 1 year warranty.
Each Juul pod flavor cartridge contains 0.7mL of juice with 5% nicotine by weight.
The total prize for the kit is $49.99.
How to Use the Juul E-Cig
To start vaping on the Juul you insert one of the flavor pods until it clicks into place. Once the flavor pod is inserted you are ready to vape and can gently start drawing on the Juul, as you would on a normal cigarette. The Juul is very intuitive and you do not need to press any buttons to begin vaping. Simply inhale and it will produce vapor.
To check the battery life on your Juul, simply tap twice anywhere on the device. The light will now flash either green, yellow or red. Green means the battery level is high, yellow is medium and red indicates that you will soon need to re-charge your Juul.
To re-charge your Juul you will need to attach it to the provided magnetic USB charger and insert it into a USB port. It took us under an hour to fully re-charge the battery.
Vaping the Juul Pods
The Juul pods hit extremely hard as they have a high nicotine level. This is to mimic the throat hit you would experience whilst smoking. In that respect it does a good job and the Juul provides a good way to get that nic hit you would be used to from a cigarette.
The Juul pods contain about 0.7ml of e-juice which according to Juul is the equivalent to one pack of smokes. We were quite impressed by how long the pods lasted given they only contain 0.7ml. We found one pod will last you around a day of medium usage. The battery life doesn’t last as long as the pods do, so you might need to re-charge or carry an extra battery if you are a heavy user.
Juul Flavor Review
“Peaches, grapes and berries with herbal notes.”
This one wasn’t one of our favorites and we could only really taste the grape flavor.
“Crisp peppermint and soothing aftertaste.”
The mint pod was not bad and provided a nice refreshing vape.
“Rich unmistakable American Tobacco”
The tobacco flavor is not bad, although it is no “Black Note”! This is a good one for those smokers wanting a flavor relatively similar to a cigarette.
“Vanilla cake, silky custard and crème brûlèe”.
This was our favourite flavor of the four and provided a nice sweet vape. The Bruule is a good option for those with a sweet-tooth.
Overall the flavors were not bad, but not amazing. I think this is due to the high nicotine level of the Juul pods.
Small, Light and Portable
The Juul is just 9cm long and weighs next to nothing. It makes it great for those looking for a tiny vape that they can carry around inconspicuously.
Massive Throat Hit
The Juul hits really hard given its high nicotine content and high PG ratio. Ex-Smokers who are looking for that same nicotine and throat hit, will enjoy the hit you get when vaping the Juul.
Simple to Use
The Juul is so simple to use and isn’t like other more complicated vape kits that will require you to replace your coils or fill the tank up with e-juice. The Juul is meant for those looking for a no-hassle pod vape and I can see it being very appealing to a lot of newbie vapers for this very reason.
Just like the Pax 2 the Juul looks pretty elegant. I think if it was slighty less “USB box shaped” and had more rounded edges it would look even better.
Quick Re-Charging Time
Our Juul took just under an hour to re-charge when plugged into our desktop pc. If you think battery life will be an issue I would recommend having a spare on hand.
The Odd Leak When Drawing too Hard
We had the odd leak through the mouthpiece every now and then. I think this can be put down to us drawing too hard. Also make sure not to squeeze the Juul pods at all, as that could also result in leaks.
This is a vape kit aimed towards new vapers who aren’t interested in the larger beginner set ups and box mod devices. The Juul is an extremely small and lightweight device that makes for a great e-cigarette starter kit and fantastic alternative to other cig-a-like/pod vape type devices. Whilst the pods are on the pricey side, the Juul definitely performs much better than some of the top cig-a-likes on the market.
The Juul can also be used by the more experienced vapers who are looking for a little stealth vape to carry around in their pocket.
Overall we were very impressed by the Juul and it definitely shakes up the cig-a-like/e-cigarette/pod mod market. It’s a perfect device for those who are looking for their first vape and want something that isn’t complicated and bulky.
