Why is Juul Considered the Best?

There are many reasons as to why the Juul is so popular, and it’s mainly because of its ultra portable design, ease of use and actual satisfaction from the pods available today. As shown above, the nicotine strength available is 50mg (nicotine salt), which is perfect for the pack a day smoker or vaper looking for a quick vape to satisfy their needs.

What’s even better is the wide variety of flavors available will suit most vapers today, whether if you’re a new vaper looking for a traditional tobacco flavor or an experienced vaper looking for a dessert or fruit type flavor. No matter what kind of flavor you enjoy the most, you’ll find them available for the Juul.

Going back to the ease of use, the disposable pods make it a great choice for both beginners and experts. The pods come pre-filled and packaged in a small box, so you can easily carry a spare pod with you when you’re on the go. A simple two taps will show you the battery life, so you’ll know exactly when to charge your Juul. 

The Key Features of the Juul

  • Ultra Slim Design: By simply looking at the Juul, you can tell they wanted to make this vape something you can easily carry with you during the day and it really is. You can carry this device in your pocket or bag with zero issues. Not only is it portable, but it has a premium look and feel, putting it in a class of its own.
  • Ease of Use: The Juul features a plug and play design, simply insert the Juul pod into the actual device, and you’re good to go! Once that pod is depleted, you can easily slide it out and replace it with a fresh cartridge. Another feature that adds to the overall ease of use is the draw activated firing system, which means there are no buttons whatsoever you need to press to take a vape.
  • Charging System: The Juul does come with a magnetic charging dock, which can be plugged into any USB port. Since it’s magnetic, there’s no wires to be tangled or anything of that nature, which is always a good thing!
  • Flavors: To put it simple, there are a lot of flavors available for the Juul including two different types of Tobacco, Fruit, Dessert, Cream, Menthol, Mint and more! There is a variety pack available as well for you vapers wanting to try multiple flavors at one low cost rather than having to buy each individual flavor.
  • Nicotine Satisfaction: As mentioned earlier, the sheer satisfaction you get from the available pods in the Juul is simply great. The 50mg flavors offers a strong yet smooth throat hit that’s second to none.
  • Includes Everything: The available Juul Starter Kit literally comes with everything you need to start vaping and quit smoking. The entire kit comes with 4 pre-filled JUULpods, the device and the charging dock. However, for the vaper just wanting the device, the Juul is available in a basic kit which does not come with any pre-filled pods. This is great for the vaper looking to purchase a backup device or wants to buy flavors separately.

Phix - Worthy Competitor?

The Phix is another pod vape system, but offers some key differences when comparing it to its competitor, the Juul. First, let’s cover some similarities between the two. The Phix, like the Juul, also features a draw activated firing system, pre-filled pods, a rather slim design and is just as easy to use.

Moving onto some differences, the Phix does offer a larger battery which in turn will provide you with a longer lasting vape experience. Depending on how much you want and if you have a charger nearby during the day will determine how important this difference is. Charging this device is also similar to the Juul, and they both have a proprietary charging system. 

Although they both have a slim form factor, the Phix is definitely the larger pod system of the two. This is, of course necessary to house the slightly larger battery. The overall design is different as well, the Phix has a curved design whereas its competitor has a flat design. 

Another major different is the actual e-liquid within each of the pods available. The flavors available for the Phix are crafted by Brewell MFG, who are well known for many of their vape juices used in more advanced vaporizers and atomizers such as sub ohm tanks, RDAs, RTAs and more. With that being said, there’s various flavors to choose from.

The Key Features of the Phix

  • Larger E-Liquid Capacity: The pre-filled pods available for the Phix have an e-liquid capacity of 1.5ml, so that’s more than double what you get when compared to JUULpods. That’s a major difference, and definitely something to consider when choosing which one is right for you. You certainly get more bang for the buck when it comes to how much e-liquid you’re getting.
  • Battery Size: As mentioned previously, the Phix does have an advantage when it comes to battery life as the internal battery built-in is quite a bit larger than the competition. This means more vaping time and less charging, which can be good for a long day. This also means that charging this battery will be slightly longer in comparison, but is expected. This device does charge up to 1A as well, and while not as fast as a 2A charge, it’s still pretty quick to charge.
  • Flavor Options: If you’re a fan of Brewell e-liquids, then you might enjoy the flavors available for the Phix since they are crafted by them. This also means a different variety of flavors when compared to the Juul although some of the flavors are similar. The nicotine strength is also 50mg which will provide a strong throat hit.

Is the Juul better than the Phix?

So the main question is, which pod system is best? Now, it’s not a straightforward answer as to which vape device is best for you. There are many features to both of them and determining which one is for you will be based on which exactly better suits your vaping needs. There are a few things you should consider which we'll cover below.

The Juul does have a much better feel in the hands and offers a more premium design, but that’s not saying the design of the Phix is not comparable. Although the Phix is compact, it does feel quite a bit larger side by side. 

Another factor to consider is the actual flavors in the pods since that’s what you’ll be vaping on. Both of these closed pod systems have various flavor options available, but there are certain flavors only available to the Juul and Phix. Another deciding factor is the capacity, as the Phix does have over double the amount in each pre-filled pod. 

Something else to consider before making your final decision is the battery size and how much battery life you’ll need to get through the day. If you’re a chain vaper who vapes a lot throughout the day, the Phix might serve you better due to its larger internal battery. If you’re not vaping as much, the Juul is rated to last about the entire length of 1 JUULpod. 

With all of that being said, our personal choice between the two is the Juul. We’re impressed by its ultra compact design and ease of use. The double tap to check the battery life is a nice touch and the build quality is fantastic. Each flavor we’ve tried simply tastes great and every vape we took was satisfying.

  1. I find the Phix vastly superior in longevity of battery, pod, and the life of the device itself. It is MUCH more cost-effective, and doesn’t leak, or “spit,” as I have found Juul to do. I use the original tobacco flavor, which I find very satisfying. The only downside is that it is not nearly as widely sold as Juul.
