With a focus on industrial product design, JUUL Labs developed their pod-based vaporizers to work as a simple, satisfying, and true alternative to cigarettes.
Each replaceable JUULpod is filled with a proprietary e-liquid formulation consisting of nicotine, benzoic acid, propylene glycol, glycerin, and flavor, and contains cigarette-like nicotine levels (either 3% or 5%, depending on your preferences).
When you are ready to enjoy, JUULpods snap into place at the top of the vaporizer, which features regulated temperature control for ease of use, without having to worry about dealing with buttons or switches.
Together, JUUL aims to eliminate cigarettes among adult smokers, along with the ash and odor, by delivering “a nicotine experience found in no other alternative on the market.”
Since 2015, JUUL has implemented its unique approach to vaporization technology in a single, two-part device that consists of a battery (attached to various electronics), and pods. Below, we will take a closer look at each of these aspects.
JUULpods are made from medical-grade, heat resistant, and food-grade plastics, along with a combination of a stainless steel vapor path, industry-standard silica wick, and nichrome coil heater. Because each pod contains a new coil, there is no replacement or setup needed when the time comes to put a new one into place.
Inside their clear chamber, JUULpods contain ~0.7 ml of a proprietary e-liquid formula made from a blend of glycerol, propylene glycol, flavors, nicotine (3% and 5% strengths available), and benzoic acid. The company currently offers three flavors: Virginia Tobacco, Menthol, and Classic Tobacco.
When you are ready to vape, simply click the JUULpod into the top of the battery, inhale through the mouthpiece, and the smart temperature-regulation technology will heat the formula of proprietary salt—which is based on nicotine salts, instead of freebase nicotine—to an optimal level.
JUULpods last for about a year, although the manufacturer emphasizes that you should use them soon after they are purchased. JUULpods cannot be refilled or reused and should be recycled along with other e-waste instead of thrown in the garbage.
Without its pod attached, the JUUL device measures about 3.12” long, 7/32” thick, and about 0.6” wide, and weighs 14 grams.
Inside the device’s aluminum shell, you will find a stress-tested lithium-ion polymer battery (200mAh), a circuit board, and a patent-pending temperature regulator that uses a closed-loop algorithm to control temperature and deliver ideal powers levels to each JUULpod.
The shell also houses sensors that perceive when the battery is in use, as well as its charge level. When the time comes, the battery is rechargeable via an included magnetic USB charging dock.
While the company does not officially endorse them for obvious reasons, the reality is that several popular third-party manufacturers offer JUULpods in many more flavors than OEM, including popular options like Eon Smoke and Zip Pods.
Each Eon pod features a 1ml salt-based e-liquid formula made from vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, glycerol, flavoring, benzoic acid, and 6% nicotine by weight. Each four-pack is compatible with JUUL vapes and similar brands.
Popular Eon pod flavors include Mango, Pink Lemonade, Blueberry, Pineapple Crush, and Sour Apple.
Zip pods are very much alike in many respects. They are compatible with JUUL vapes and similar brands and contain 1ml of e-liquid formula composed of a blend of propylene glycol, glycerol, flavoring, benzoic acid, and 5% nicotine by weight (slightly lower than Eon’s pods). Flavor-wise, you will find popular options like Iced Watermelon, Mint, Cappuccino, and Strawberry Milk from Zip.
Many customers purchase spare JUUL batteries to ensure they always have a charge when needed, which are available in grey, silver, and black colors.
Other popular accessories that can help you customize your JUUL vaporizer include USB chargers, car chargers, portable charging cases, charging cables of different lengths, skins (specially designed stickers used to cover the device and customize it to your tastes), and silicone protective cases.
As outlined above, JUUL currently only makes one vaporizer model that focuses on ease of use, plug-and-play operation, and worry-free functionality for smokers switching from cigarettes.
However, this does not mean you cannot customize your JUUL setup. You can choose the flavor and nicotine strength that works best based on your needs and preferences.
And although JUUL has no immediate plans to offer non-nicotine pods, you can select aftermarket pods, as well as flavors not provided directly by JUUL.
JUUL is a popular vaporizer brand sold at thousands of retail locations, including vape shops, convenience stores, and big-box retailers. You can also find JUUL vaporizers here on VapeVetStore.com, where shipping is always free!

JUUL vaporizers have only been around since 2015, and the technology as a whole is relatively new, so it’s normal to have questions. Below, we will help you find answers to several of the most common queries.
Once your battery is charged, insert a JUULpod into the top of the device, which will snap into place. You can double-check battery life by tapping twice or begin drawing evenly from the pod's mouthpiece and inhaling your preferred amount of vapor.
After exhaling, you can repeat the process until you are satisfied.
JUUL vaporizers do no feature adjustable temperature. However, each device uses a unique algorithm to regulate temperature, control power to the JUULpod, and deliver an ideal vapor level.
Based on their ease of use, competitive price, and widespread availability, JUUL vapes can deliver a lot of value for your money, especially if you are transitioning from cigarettes. And with only three flavors and two nicotine strengths available, you will not have to make a lot of personal choices before you start enjoying vaping.
As with any other purchase, whether or not JUUL vapes work for you will come down to your unique combination of budget, needs, and preferences.
A fully charged JUUL battery should last you about a day, depending on your usage.
When the time comes, you will insert your Charging Dock into a USB port (ideally, a laptop), and then place your device’s contacts into the dock. You can keep your JUULpod in place while charging is occurring if you choose.
Once plugged in, it will take about an hour to charge your JUUL's battery. In the meantime, smart-charge technology is designed to reduce the chances of overcharging and potential damage as a result.
Using your JUUL vaporizer is as easy as ensuring you have a charged battery, snapping a JUULpod of your flavor and nicotine choice into place, drawing steadily on the mouthpiece, and inhaling until you have achieved the optimal level of vapor.
After several uses, you can double-tap the device to check the battery level. And when your JUULpod's e-liquid is consumed, all you have to do is pull it out, replace it with a new pod (whether from JUUL or an aftermarket company like Eon Smoke and Zip Pods), and resume enjoying.
Other than occasionally cleaning charge contacts with a dry or slightly moistened cotton bud, JUUL vaporizers and pods require no maintenance.
