In just two years on the market, a new type of e-cigarette, JUUL, has become so popular among young people that it has already taken up almost half of the e-cigarette market share. The product’s rapid rise in popularity has prompted The Boston Globe to call it “the most common phenomenon you’ve probably never heard of.”
JUUL tobacco heating system review
The JUUL system is understood to be an electronic cigarette. It works on cartridges that are filled with salt nicotine. The cartridge is heated and vaporizes a special glycerin-based liquid. As a result of the heating, nicotine is released.
The system uses a different composition of nicotine. As a result, it is absorbed into the user’s blood faster, and saturation occurs in a shorter time than with iqos.
Conventional smoking releases tar and other harmful substances into the body. When using JUUL pods, nicotine is removed, and nothing gets into the smoker’s lungs. This fact proves the safety of JUUL.
In appearance, JUUL is similar to a flash drive or an ordinary lighter. It is oblong and elongated in shape. The capsules in which the liquid is placed are called pods.
A heating element is placed inside. When the smoker inhales, the mechanism is triggered, the vapor is heated, and the vapor flows into the user’s mouth. One stick is enough for 200 puffs. One stick is equivalent to 20 cigarettes.
This is a rechargeable gadget. You can charge the device from a regular computer or laptop. Juul weight is small, 40 grams. It is not heavy to wear and easy to take on the road. It should be noted that the sticks are sold in different flavors. Consumers choose according to their own tastes.
Appearance and design
JUUL is one of the most compact PODs you can buy on the vape market. The device’s size is impressive because its length is 9 cm and width is only 1.5 cm, so there will be no problems with its carrying – it will fit anywhere – in a shirt or jacket pocket, a purse, or a clutch.
The only problem is to keep it because it weighs less than 80 grams, and with its dimensions, you can not feel how the device will fall out.
How to use the JUUL?
The JUUL is a non-refillable (closed) pod system. It consists of two parts: the battery pack (battery) and the cartridge filled with liquid for electronic cigarettes. The cartridge (together with the mouthpiece) is snapped into the battery pack, and that’s it. Finally, the device is ready to work. The liquids in JUUL have only one nicotine content of 59 mg/ml, with 5 primary flavors and 3 additional flavors in a limited edition.
The best way to get acquainted with JUUL would be a starter kit, which includes the following:
- JUUL Pod System.
- 4 cartridges with different flavors (mango, crème brûlée, cool mint, and Virginia tobacco).
- USB charger.
The manufacturer claims that the nicotine content in one cartridge of JUUL is equivalent to a pack of tobacco cigarettes. This does not mean one cartridge is as harmful to the body as smoking 20 cigarettes. The comparison is only the nicotine content. Public Health England says vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking.
Depending on the frequency of use, one cartridge will last about 1-1.5 days (including approximately 200 puffs). As for the battery’s capacity, it is designed for a different duration, to charge on average once a day.
Charging the battery pack takes about 50 minutes, so you won’t have to wait long. In the case of the JUUL pods battery pack, there is an LED charge indicator. If you touch the device twice, you can see by the color of the hand how much charge is left: green – a high charge level, yellow – the average level of control, and red – a low level. Soon you will need to charge the device.
How to charge the JUUL?
You need to use the special adapter with each kit to charge it. There is a protective cap on the adapter. It is tightly removed. From the outside, this adapter is very similar to a flash drive because there is a USB connector on one end.
Pins connect it to the battery pack on the other side of the adapter. Thus, without this adapter, it will be possible to charge the device theoretically but problematic in practice. If to take into account the fact that the battery has a small capacity, and it will have to recharge often, the desire to make a homemade adapter will fall away, so pay attention to the factory version to keep it.
If you need to recharge it quickly, you can use the JUUL Portable Charging Case from the manufacturer. Its capacity is, 1270 mAh.
What are the flavors and strengths?
Cartridges are available in different flavors. The nicotine content varies from 3% to 5%. The strength is several times that of other e-cigarettes. The result is a device that resembles regular cigarettes in its properties.
