Pod System Starter Kit Review: STLTH vs JUUL

The STLTH and JUUL are two of the most popular closed pod system starter kits on the market today. They both have similarities in terms of their compact shape, easy-of-use, and two-part design consisting of the ejuice pod section and the battery. 

Both of them are suited for beginners, especially if you are on the journey to freedom from tobacco cigarettes. So, if you are considering which of the two you should be looking out for the next time you visit a vape store, read on. 

Let’s Start with STLTH

The STLTH pod system is designed by STLTH, a Canadian manufacturer. The STLTH device is a simple and affordable alternative for traditional smokers to make a successful transition. The founders of STLTH Canada are all ex-smokers who quit smoking through the help of vape devices. Using that knowledge, they decided to create a product that filled in the gap that was missing in all the vape devices at the time – simplicity and affordability that is designed for everyday use, something everyone can afford.

The STLTH has an internal 420mAh battery capacity that delivers up to 250 puffs. On a full charge, it can keep you vaping for well over a day depending on how frequent you use the device. The battery charges using a micro USB port that can power it up in less than an hour. 

In terms of ejuice, the STLTH device comes with proprietary 2ml pods. The pods last about 2 to 5 days depending on how often you use your device. Once the pods are empty, you will have to dispose of them and replace. You get to choose from STLTH’s flavor library consisting of 22 ejuice flavors, with each flavor giving you a choice of 20mg, 35mg, and 50mg of nicotine. 

STLTH pods do not cost much, a pack of 3 replacement pods ranges from $14.99 to $15.90. It is sold much cheaper on Hazetown Vapes for $12. Since one pod contains 2ml of ejuice, one pack of pods equal 6ml of ejuice.

When you get the STLTH device, you also get a charging cable, an instruction manual, and a warranty registration card. You get to also choose from Navy Blue, Black, Gray, and Rose Gold.

The Price of the STLTH device itself is $16, also on Hazetown Vapes

Next, JUUL

Not many people know the company behind the JUUL. Altria is a tobacco company that manufactures the JUUL device. It was created to help smokers who are looking to quit the habit for good. JUUL is one of the most popular names in the vaping industry, and for a good reason.

The JUUL comes equipped with a 200mAh battery that can last you about 200 puffs on a single charge. How long it will last depends on how often you will be using the device. The device uses a proprietary magnetic charger that connects to its base.

JUUL ejuice pods carry 0.7ml of ejuice. The pods cannot be refilled so once they are empty, they must be replaced. JUUL ejuice pods are available in 6 flavors and each flavor is available with 18mg, 35mg, and 59mg of nicotine. 

A pack of JUUL replacement pods contain four JUUL pods. Each pack is sold for $16 at Hazetown Vapes, as usual, considerably cheaper than on other vape stores. JUUL pods are quite pricey when compared to other closed pod systems on the market. 

When you buy the JUUL, you also get one proprietary USB charger, one multi JUUL pod featuring 4 pods: Virginia Tobacco, Cool Mint, Mango, and Creme Brulee (Vanilla), and 1-year device warranty. 

The JUUL itself is sold for $49 at Hazetown Vapes. 


Both the STLTH and JUUL devices work the same. The major difference is in their flavor options, battery size, ejuice capacities, and most importantly, price. The choice depends on you because both the STLTH and JUUL are exceptional devices.
