Pax Labs has finally released its Juul eCig, what they are calling ‘Smoking Evolved’ which we find a little odd…smoking? We thought it was ‘vaping evolved’. Whatever. The Juul uses ‘JuulPods’ which are not user fillable or serviceable, so its clear that PAX is going after the consumables in a big way. We think these are aimed at the entry level vaper, who doesn’t care much about customization. The retailer list on juulvapor.com mainly lists gas stations as retailers. Excellent distribution, no doubt.
The focus seems to be on these Juulpods, that utilize a new nicotine delivery system that utilizes nicotine salts, according to James Monsees, CEO of PAX Labs. The nicotine salts allow for a hit that creates an effect more akin to smoking. Just want something with eLiquid an no nicotine? Keep looking, the Juulpods only come with nicotine. Flavors? Tabaac, miint, fruut, and brulee. No – Seriously! Brew-Leeeeeee… I’d prefer some Crème brûlée, but that probably won’t go over well in gas stations.
This eCig is clearly designed for those the use Blu, eJoy, and similar very basic ecigs. 200 quality puffs per pod? Good stuff, but there’s no work on coil material, vapor path materials, etc. Some other features that Pax Labs did mention:
