JUUL and JUULpod Alternatives
Adults, who are genuinely looking for a substitute to cigarette smoking, will find many alternatives out there. One of the dominant players in the e-cigarette market so far has been JUUL, with JUUL pods having being the biggest seller by far.
Newcomers to the market are challenging this monopoly with new innovations in their pod systems and vape products. They are aggressively entering this lucrative market with very competitive pricing. Competition is just as good for the vaping industry, as it is within others too, and it also assists in ensuring higher quality products. Consumers need to be alert and to seek certifications in order to ascertain that they are not been sold counterfeit products or products that do not meet safety standards.
As JUUL undergoes some transitions, one of them is a problem with the FDA and another is their new partnership with Altria, there might be a decline in the availability of the pods, more specifically, the fruit flavored variety. Even if there is no decline in availability, consumers have been carping on several issues for some time now.
What are the reasons that JUUL clients are looking for alternatives?
- Even though JUUL has kept releasing a variety of great flavors, the pod is a closed system, allowing the user to vape only the flavors provided by JUUL pods.
- The JUUL pods are not refillable and some of the most popular pod flavor prices has steadily been on the increase.
- Some consider the JUUL pod size to be quite small and find they need to be replaced too often.
- At 0.7ml capacity, the JUUL pod allows for 200 puffs. However, the nicotine concentration is high at 56mg/ml giving the user the required nicotine with fewer puffs. While some pods come at 3% and 5% nicotine concentration by weight, JUUL is not planning on releasing pods with less nicotine any time soon. Some users of the product wish for higher or lower dosages of the nicotine content within the pods.
- The battery life of the JUUL has been the source of much annoyance (200mAH), with other vape pens offering a longer smoke time between charges.

Like the MYLE, KWIT, and JUUL devices, the STIG is also a closed pod device. However, unlike the three mentioned devices, it is unique in that it is disposable. If you are looking for the easiest vaping experience that is compact, lightweight, and straight-forward to use, look no further than the STIG devices.

All these flavors are of a good quality and affordable. Each pack contains 4 X 1 ml of the pods (the JUUL pod has 0.7ml) and more flavors were recently added as demand increased. The air flow in the Plus Pod is the same as the tight airflow available from the JUUL and the nicotine salt is at 60mg or 6% nicotine by volume.
A little insider trick, try taking a hit when covering up on of the holes on the top of the pod to get a whole different experience ;).
