JUUL is worth $16 BILLION, making it the biggest vape brand on the planet. But how much does JUUL cost and how much are its JUULpods? Read on for our detailed JUUL FAQs…
Everybody knows JUUL, even people that don’t vape. And the reason for this is that the company has officially become the FDA’s whipping boy.
For better or worse, JUUL is now extremely visible and highly scrutinized. It is also extremely popular with new vapers because the device itself is so simple to use.
How much does JUUL cost? A starter kit retails for $34.99 and this includes a charging dock, four JUUL pods, and the JUUL device itself.
JUUL also does a “device kit” which just gets you the JUUL vape itself, but it doesn’t come with any JUUL pods.
The JUUL starter kit overs the best value for money, as you get everything you need to start using the device immediately.
How To Setup JUUL
If you’re using the device for the first time, and are unsure how to proceed, please check out our How To Setup JUUL For The First Time feature – you’ll find everything you need there.
How Much Do JUUL Pods Cost?
JUUL pods retail for $15.99 per pack, and you get four pods inside each pack.
There are currently eight flavors to choose from in the US:
- Virginia Tobacco flavor
- Cool Mint flavor
- Fruit Medley flavor
- Creme Brûlée flavor
- Mango flavor
- Cool Cucumber flavor
- Classic Menthol flavor
- Classic Tobacco flavor
If you’re going to be using JUUL long-term, it is definitely worth using third-party JUUL pods, as they’re cheaper and come in more flavors. Right now, the following brands – listed in the table below – are my go-to favorites for flavor and value for money:
|PICTURE||BRAND||BEST PRICE||Why You'd Buy||RATING|
(Best For Strength & Flavor)
(Best For Value For Money)
(Cheaper & Bigger Than JUUL's)
How Long Do JUUL Pods Last?
JUUL says that its JUUL Pods will officially last (about) as long as a 20 pack of cigarettes.
This means about 200 puffs, or thereabouts.
Obviously, the more you use JUUL, the quicker you will get through a pod. Less is more here, really.
What Are The Best JUUL Alternatives?
JUUL isn’t the only game in town when it comes to pod mod vapes. In fact, there are plenty of alternatives that are vastly superior to JUUL. How? Simple: all of the pod vapes listed below have better battery life, are 100% refillable, and cost less to run.
|IMAGE||NAME||BEST PRICE||KEY POINTS||RATING|
(Best Pen-Style Pod)
(Best All-Round Performer)
(Like JUUL, Just Better)
(INSANE Value For Money)
(A KILLER Pod Vape)
(Great Value + Performance)
(Unique & Brilliant)
(Cheaper Than MiPod)
(Perfect Flavor, Great Coils)
(Cheap, Will Sub Ohm)
Can I Refill JUUL Pods?
No, JUUL Pods are not “officially” refillable. I say, officially, because there are plenty of videos on YouTube that show you how to unofficially refill a JUUL Pod.
Do JUUL Offer A Warranty?
Yes, it does! You get a one year warranty on your JUUL from the moment you purchase it.
This means if anything goes wrong with it during the year you own it, providing you’re within warranty, JUUL will replace it. Handy.
Can I Take JUUL On An Airplane?
Yes, JUUL is safe for travel. However, you should not use it while you’re flying – most airlines prohibit the use of vaporizers on their planes.
In addition to this, altitude can affect JUUL Pods. They might leak due to extreme pressure changes, so it’s always advisable to keep them in a baggy whenever you fly.
No one wants JUUL juice all over their holiday clothes, after all.
How Long Does The JUUL Battery Life Last?
Again, about as long as it takes to get through a JUUL pod – so around 200 puffs or so.
If you’re going to be using the JUUL a lot, it’s worth investing in a spare JUUL battery – they’re relatively inexpensive and very useful.
You can also get portable JUUL chargers too; these work much like power banks for your phone:
You have a couple of JUUL batteries charging at all times, so you always have a fresh one when the one you’re using dies. And once you’ve swapped, you can start recharging the dead one again.
The Jili Box ($34.99/Vapor4Life) is considered to be one of the best portable JUUL chargers.
Having one of these in your arsenal ensures you have zero downtime when vaping. And no nicotine withdrawal 🙂
Anything Else I Should Know?
Not really, that’s about everything I can think of off the top of my head!
JUUL is simple; that’s how it was designed.
There is ZERO learning curve with this type of vape, which is why it’s so popular in the US with those looking to quit smoking.
