    Hi,

    I had a question about the fill your own PODS and JUUL. It has been many years since I have used a system that you fill up yourself, and I am not familiar with a lot of the new tech.

    My question is first, what is a good pod system that can use high salt nic 50mg that will push out levels around what the JUUL does, but not much more as I don't want to get nic sick.

    Also, what are some good brand juice to use in these? I have been looking at some company called POD JUICE 55... I am not familiar with a lot of brands these days. (I used to use Johnsons creek and NJOY liquids back in the day!)

    Thanks.

    Out of probably a couple dozen pods I've tried, the best for me has been Vladdin RE. I use NET juice, and I can fill it up to 5 times, which has been incredible for me. Even in my RTA's I only go maybe 8 ml before rebuilding. Can't help with the juice, because I diy. But any device can handle any strength of nic....you'd really only need to worry about the pg/vg ratio, as some pods don't wick well enough to handle all vg. I use all VG in the Vladdin, and it handles it just fine.

    Another approach is to become more flexible. For the last 4 years I vaped one rig exclusively, SV rda clone on an original Pico. Then all this trouble starts so I decided to buy some vape toys to play with in the future, like a squonker, some tanks, etc. In the process of testing them I learned to like more than one exact vape. In times like these may be being more flexible has virtue. Having said all that the SV on a Pico is still my favorite setup.

    Vaping on a Voopoo Vinci right now. Great device so far.

    The Uwell Caliburn is widely acclaimed, too. Very simple and flavorful device. Renova Zero and Vladdin Eden/RE are both worth a look as well.

    Yeah, have heard almost nothing but good about the Caliburn, but haven't tried it. Zero was weird. I absolutely loved just about everything about it, except draw sensitivity. Had to draw way too hard to activate it. So I never used it long enough to see how long the coils lasted. I've taken hits off of the Minifit, and it hits really well, but don't own that one - a lot of people love it.

    Minifit is always a good choice. But, I bought a bunch of pods for it on sale (.99 each) and everyone so far floods so bad they’re unusable. I’m afraid they were factory seconds. But with good pods it is great, and cheap.

    Thanks for the tips, everyone. I have been looking at the Caliburn that was mentioned and also the Novo 2... any thoughts about that one?

    No idea on the Novo 2, but got the caliburn for the wife, she likes it. Pods are apparently very long lasting since she's only gone thru 3 of them, and 120+ ml juice since she got it (actually got 2 caliburns, that way one can be charging, probably get another one for back-up soon).

    Caliburn is great. Loose MTL type draw, but good flavor and solid pod performance.

    The Zero is a very tight draw, so it might not be for everyone. Mine saw daily use and typically carried in my pocket every day for a year...just died a few weeks ago so not bad for less than $20. I may just replace it...I still find myself enjoying that cigarette type draw.

    The Vladdin RE is like a refillable juul.

    Flavors? Sky's the limit there, but if you want tobacco flavor Black Note makes some really nice products.

    Wow, I don't get that at all with my preference & style. I think Vladdin hits way better than Juul. With Juul, I have to close one side of the air intake and really try just to get a decent hit, and even then, it's just real "thin."

    Innokin IO is smaller than the Juul and hits better.
