What the fuck is up with juul

I used to into vaping, making my own coils for my RDA and shoot, but I’ve been out of the culture for a minute.

I’ve never bough one of these before. Brother gave it as a gift. I go out and get the pods, fully charge the bitch, and it’s super uncooperative. Like, I have the grip the top end in a weird way so the connection points are able to fire.

Are all Juuls like this? I suspect they are all finicky chinesium trash, or I am just unlucky?

General opinions on juuls?

I see them advertised a lot so I go out of my way to avoid them. I'm guessing they are all "finicky chinesium trash" as you say.

I was literally given a free juul with a charger several days ago. I even got the same brushed gold color. I went and bought the pods, and even though the fucking thing was fully charged, it would not fire.

So, saving you some cursory googling, I found out you need a q-tip soaked in isopropyl alcohol to swab down the contact points, cleaning any debris. This helped me immensely, but the juul product is still a piece of shit in general. I still have to use my mouth when I'm hitting it to make contact and fire the device.

I've had one for several months and thought the build quality was the only impressive thing about it. Still works and looks like new, just need to clean the contacts every now and then. Pretty much everything else about it sucks.

I still use it sometimes when I want something that feels like a cigarette in my hand. But like the above poster said there are many better pod systems.

If yall want an update, I cleaned it shortly after this thread with iso alcohol and it has worked fine ever since. I am satisfied despite its Chinese origin.

also you should make your own cbd juice for it. pods are easy as fuck to refill. just put cbd powder in your own juice without nicotine. you can buy a juul carrying case and it charges the juul and carries 4 pods in it.

flavored cbd any time

They're compact and tiny, which is a boon. However, buying pods can get fucked. Let me rebuild that shit.

Juuls spawned a whole bunch of knock offs that are way better and less expensive to refill. I wasn't interested in getting one until the Suorin Edge came out because it has replaceable batteries that charge via usb-c, a standard 5-press lock/unlock button, and it's not much bigger or heavier than a Juul. I can finally leave my 18650 mod at home and just put this thing discretely in a shirt pocket when I'm out of the house.

they have a 1 year warranty and they are fucking awesome. i just got one and its really fucking cool i refill the pods which is stupid because they have other vapes made for that but i started juul first and im already familiar with it and you can buy anything in stores in any part of the country all over the place.

its fucking awesome just get the warranty. i hope they all work good mine takes a really long time to charge i think and i dont see the yellow light.

actually this thing is a hunk of shit now that i think about it. ive never seen the yellow light on it. ever. just straight green to flashing red out of nowhere. i never get any warning until its like almost dead.

and then it takes fucking forever to charge it. i swear ive had it on there for like an hour and a half and still not full. and everyone else says its 40 minutes. and then i have to fucking send it back and wait 2 weeks for a fucking repair to get it. fuck off! hunk of shit!

So what's the best one besides Juul? I just got a Juul a couple of weeks ago and love it. I can convince myself I'm smoking a cig and have stopped smoking besides the occasional drunken cigarette. Can you put the Juul pods in the knock off ones? Part of why I like Juul is I can just go into any store and get the pods like I can with cigs.

Are there any vapes that have easily swapped tanks that aren't tiny volume and borderline disposable like these pod things? Or is there some way to swap tanks without emptying and disassembling them that i am overlooking? Using a vaporesso stick thing....

Wait...wait... Never mind. That might have seemed like satire, but I'm actually retarded and there was not a trace of irony.

flip it to the french side every two or three pulls.

the coils are powered by an el cheapo PWM attached to a battery.

you'll wear out one side by ripping it

thats why they're "single use"

Look up the phix. All around better juul, same design, bigger battery, bigger pods, battery indicator, pass through charging, and a good selection of flavors. Honestly I prefer it to my old tank setup. Juice is a pain spilling it and staining clothes and furniture and replacing coils all the time. Juul/phix is a little more expensive but so much easier. And I know the new model phix at least provides a nice hit, helpful for actually quitting/slowing down smoking.

I don't know much about the juul but I love the phix, and I it might be cheaper than the juul. Spread the word I want this company to do better so they can keep improving the product.

The Edge has swappable batteries tho. But I guess if a person insists on buying pre-filled pods at ridiculous prices because they're too clumsy to fill their own pod, it make sense.

juuls are absurdly well designed and well built, if it's finnicky it's probably bootleg. worth mentioning they are a huge loss leader type of deal considering the quality. this is why the refills are so overpriced, the device itself is sold at a steep loss to attract new users. also ffs don't encourage such dickery by continuing to pay for this crap. go right back to using a tank system like you're used to, what's available now is probably better than whatever you were using in the past. (or just hop on the suorin train like thermo keeps saying. those are good.)

chinesium. el cheapo. dingus end.

Yeah dude the other thing is I fucking hate cheap plastic garbage products. I refuse to own that kind of shit. I'm so tired of seeing ugly ass trucks that are huge as fuck but like 50% plastic, but I digress. All the Suorin devices are all metal and function well. And obviously a real mod is superior if you don't mind the size and weight, as long as you don't get some trendy ass Smok mod that's gonna stop functioning or break super easily in the first month of owning it. And fuck Smok brand tanks, too.

Juul is shit and there are so many better quality juices than what's in those pre-filled pods.

Lmfao I juat examined a Juul and I guess they are metal, and what's really sad is it feels higher in quality than the current Smok mods. Holy shit the absolute state of this industry.

Uwell Caliburn is pretty fuckn good

Yeah these juuls got memed into my line of sight and recently I had been getting so sick of carrying around my box mod that I even switched back to cigs for a time

Light enough to hang from my mouth, easy switch out carts, cheaper too. Charged in like 45 minutes and looks as sleek as a juul, only a bit bigger.

Some chinese guy on circlejerk has a rebuild guide for the pods as well
I haven't used my mod since and Ive had it for well over a month now only having 2 pods burn out. One because i wasnt paying attention, and the other because I decided to try and put some homemade cbd oil in it and it gunked up very fucking fast.
Still got 4 left from the extras I bought, but honestly, having a nice thin quick lung hit is much more enjoyable than fighting to get a quick toke from an RDA.

nice thing is they are very discrete in that I can just hold the whole thing in and blow out practically blow out zero vapor if I so choose, but it still puts out cloud if I want a nice shallow one.

My nord just spent a whole day in a puddle of beer at the bottom of a recycling bag, so back to the juul for me. I want something better but a full mod won't fit my lifestyle, especially where I work on a boat and need it easily accessible inside my oil gear.

I kinda like it. The pods are overpriced but it’s something I take with me on a date or when out with friends.

Also the Virginia Tobacco flavor is just so damn tasty

Look into the phix. It is the exact same product with a bigger battery, pods have more juice, it has a battery indicator and pass through charging, and in my opinion generally vapes better and tastes better. Yes it's still a closed system so technically a bit more expensive than a tank and liquids, but the convenience is great.

They have been having some issues with new pods though, seems on average it is not unusual to buy a pack of pods and have one not work. Their service is pretty good though and I wouldn't be surprised to see another gem of pods come out soon. The company really seems dedicated to providing a good and reliable alternative to smoking.

Fuck JUUL, literally go out and spend money on a Vuse ALTO. They're way better and will last longer, I also suggest buying e-juice with pod systems to refill them, going out and buying regular pods every day or week or however much you need a refill on them with the companies pods is quite the expense for a vape, regular box mods that take up juices really fast last way longer for a bit than a JUUL. Hop off the dickriding JUUL bandwagon and go out and spend some money on a good ass vape. I fucking used a JUUL for like 2 years and realized it was really just a small system that they use to fuck you over out of money.

Dude, this post is 8 months old. Also, I use the VUSE Alto simply because it's cheaper and lasts longer.

get a caliburn my man, small and slim like the juul but with open pods so you have a wide variety of brands and flavours to try. also the pods last a lot longer before needing to be replaced vs most other open pod systems. standard freebase juices work well but it will gunk up the pod faster and youre just not going to be getting the same nicotine hits as opposed to nic salts which it's perfect for.

only downside is the battery life but thats kind of expected given its size.

so im replying to this 8 months later but this post is still on page 1. I've actually tried the edge since then, and it was good for while but at some point every tenk started tasting burnt really fast, about halfway through the first fill. idk man im still searching for a small portable vape like juul, the edge, or alto but haven't found one that didnt have problems. its actually what brought me on this board today
