JUUL is a mega-force in the vaping world. But it is NOT available in the UK. So what’s the Best JUUL Alternative For UK right now?
JUUL is HUGE.
Everybody knows about JUUL, thanks to the company receiving massive financial investment during 2017/18 and plenty of favorable reviews for the product and the company’s JUUL pods.
JUUL is now officially available in the UK too. And there is A LOT of hype about it – as you’d expect.
But JUUL isn’t ACTUALLY the best device in its class either.
Well, for one, it’s pods are not (technically) refillable.
And this makes them expensive to run.
I always advise readers to go for open pod systems.
This way, you can use your own Nic Salts E Juice (and save a fortune in the process).
The Best JUUL Alternative Right Now
I’ve tested A LOT of pod mods in the past 12 months. Too many, really. Most were pretty rubbish too; lackluster performance, rubbish battery, wonky airflow and draw.
The good ones, basically, were very few and far between. And the reason for this is simple: manufacturers are rushing to flood the market, following the success of JUUL.
But the problem here is that they didn’t really think the designs and performance of the pods through thoroughly enough.
95% of the pod mods I’ve tested SUCK. Big time.
I also recently tested SMOK’s latest pod mods and, well… they kind of underwhelmed me as well.
As of right now, following my experience with about 34 pod mod systems, my pick for the best JUUL alternative is…
The SV Mi-Pod Ultra
The SV Mi-Pod Ultra is kinda pricey, but you will know where that extra dosh when once you try it.
The coil heads are exceptional, giving excellent flavor, and it is also 100% refillable, meaning you can use your own Nic Salts E Juice.
The design of the Mi-Pod is also stunning, unlike anything else on market right now.
Why I’d Buy The Mi-Pod Over The JUUL
It Looks Better; I Mean, Just LOOK At It!
The Coil Heads Are Brilliant; They Produce Big Flavor & Last For Ages
It’s Refillable (This Will Save You A Packet In The Long Run)
It Has WAY Better Battery Life (You Can Use It All Day, Unlike The JUUL)
Bottomline: The Mi-Pod is essentially the #1 pod mod around right now. It gets everything right – flavor, performance, battery life, AND it’s refillable.
It is a VERY capable device.
So if you can stomach the extra $$$, and you want something that looks truly unique, as well as vapes great, this is one of the most solid options around right now.
Is The JUUL Hype Legit?
To be 100% frank, I’d say, no – it’s not like it’s the second coming of Christ or anything.
It’s just a super-simple, easy to use vape. And that makes it great for smokers looking to quit smoking.
However, there are MANY other options that are just as simple and, in most cases, actually better than JUUL.
JUUL Battery Life SUCKS
This is the biggest downer of the JUUL in my opinion; the battery just ain’t good enough.
You’re looking at four-to-five hours MAX with the JUUL, and this is because it has a teeny tiny battery.
The Mi-Pod, however, as a decent sized cell and it performs A LOT better in this regard.
It’s also better with flavor too, as you can use your own E Juice – and not expensive JUULpods.
Why I ALWAYS Recommend Refillable Pod Mod Vape Systems
To reiterate the point I made at the beginning of this piece: you’ll basically save money.
JUUL-like systems are more expensive to run.
This is just a fact.
It is also why JUUL favors this system – more money equals more profits.
JUULpods are smaller and cost more.
And this kinda sucks.
Nic Salt E Juice is now widely available in the UK too, and it’s nice to have a choice.
Bottomline: using a refillable pod mod system means you can use whatever vape juice you like and save money in the process.
For me, it’s a no-brainer.
And if you want my advice for a solid pod mod vape, that’s BETTER than the JUUL, I’d 100% go with the Mi-Pod.
It’s the best system I’ve tested to date (and I’ve got about 30 in my office right now!)
