Juul Alternative Pod Devices

The second type comprises the pod system devices. And the well known Juul vape starter kits have the lion share of all the pod system market in the USA and UK.

Pod-based Juul devices are not like other e-cigarettes. They are small and discrete and slip easily in your pocket. They’re too simple to operate, have no buttons and need just a drag to start working. 

The JUUL pods are not about big clouds of vapour as they are known to be good for discrete vape. But this giant in vape industry has some weaknesses which make a lot of vapers out there choose compatible competitors vape devices:

  • Negligible Choice of Flavours.

Vaping is all about big choices. But when it comes to Juul pods, you are stuck with the flavours, which are made exclusively by the manufacturer. Juul pods are non-refillable, so you have what you have. Additionally, the pods only contain 0.7 ml of e-juice, so you can get through them very quickly.

  • Lack of Power

Juul devices are not particularly powerful either. They run at between 3.6 and 4.2V based on the charge level with a wattage output of (we think) between 6.5 and 9 Watts. The Juul is powered by a 200mAh built-in battery that quickly fades with consistent use.

  • Small Amount of Vapour

While some vapers consider this fact to be a big advantage of Juuls, others dislike this characteristic.
