Ziip pods are e-liquid cartridges that are compatible with the Juul. Compared with the Juul, they come with a tad more juice with a 1mL capacity vs the 0.7mL that Juul pods contain. They come in different flavors: tobacco, mint, cappuccino, mango, watermelon, strawberry milk and much more.

These cartridges are extremely easy to use (with the Juul). It just needs to be put in the Juul’s battery to start vaping. Because the Juul is to be used with them, it has no buttons to operate – it has a draw-activated mechanism that works just by inhaling. Ziip pods are a cheaper alternative to Juul pods.

Ziip pods review

For a pod that contains 1mL juice in it, Ziip pods are a great buy – it retails for $10.99 per pack which contains 4 pods. They offer a wide variety of flavors to choose from, which are: mango, strawberry milk. Watermelon, mint, tobacco, cappuccino, iced orange, ice pina colada, iced watermelon, iced orange, iced blueberry, iced strawberry, iced pineapple, and iced mango.

Ziip pods also vape really well to, and actually tend to fit better in the Juul. Because they’re larger and, this, in turn, appears to sole some Juul issues when it comes to sub-par hits and mid-fires. The flavor profile is clean and the notes of flavor are all easily recognizable.

One will surely get a decent flavor when using, and also more choice of flavors for less money – which keeps some people to come back to these pods time and time again. This could be because these pods are a tad bit cheaper than Juul pods, and for this reason, they offer excellent value for money if you’re sick and tired of overspending on Juul cartridges.

There is just one potential issue that one might run into when using the cartridges, and that is they don’t feature some of the Juul’s native technology inside them. With this said, you can draw too hard and still get a dry hit.

The flavor is kind of subjective too, but it is found that the flavor is decent enough as it the hit you get off them is large. They taste exactly as it should, too. We don’t think that one will be disappointed by the flavors and how they perform. These cartridges are a no-brainer if you use the Juul and want some other flavors than what the Juul offers. And since they are designed specifically for the Juul, one won’t run into compatibility issues.

Package

Each pack of contains 4 pods with different flavors to choose from. Each pod contains and holds 1mL of nicotine salt e-liquid. They come with an extra 1.2mL of nicotine salt e-juice per 4-pack.

Ziip pods percent VG

While the VG percent could not be found online, we’re guessing that it’s the same as the Juul’s, which has the ratio of 60 VG and 30 VG.

How to use

They are easy to use, just snap them right into Juul device and they’re ready to use. It works the same way as Juul pods.

How to refill Ziip pods

Refilling is not what manufacturer advice to do, exactly as refilling a Jull pod.
Ziip pod makes use of the same type of rubber stopped on the inside just like the Juul, and the caps pop off the same way, too. The cap on a top is a little harder to get off, though. So there is a big chance that pods might leak after refilling.

How to make Ziip pods last longer

To make these pods last longer, don’t pull the pads out too much because every time you pull it out, a few bubbles come up and that’s how you get leaks. Also, don’t hit it constantly like it’s a pipe or a cigarette. You must give it a couple of seconds (about 10 seconds) to let the wick reabsorb, if not, you’re going to burn your cartridge very fast.

Where to buy Ziip pods

Can be purchased from Ziip’s online store at ziiptock.com/collections/zip-pods and other sites online. They can also be bought at official retailers and brick and mortar shops.

Competitors

Ziip pods vs Juul pods

Ziip’s line of pods offers one with way more flavors that Juul’s rather meager selection. While Juul pods have slightly and better defined flavor profiles, the Ziip cartridges are still very good.

VD juul kit

There isn’t much of a difference, and they both taste pretty good. There isn’t much issues when using Ziip products, and some people even have more issues with the proper Juul.

Ziip pods vs Eonsmoke

Just like the Ziip pods, Eonsmoke contains 1mL of liquid, with two nicotine concentrations to choose from. The price per pack of four is almost like the price of Ziip pods.

They also come with a variety of flavor choices, including mango sorbet, guava nectar, black cherry, café latter, and tobacco, which are one of the most popular disposable pod flavors on the market today. Eonsmoke are sure to deliver a great flavor combined with a massive library and an incredibly attractive price.

Positives and Negatives

The Positives

  • They are comparable with the Juul
  • There’s a wide range of flavors to choose from and they actually taste great
  • They hold 1mL of nicotine salt e-liquid
  • It helps people to quit smoking cigarettes

The Negatives

  • Does not give you much of a withdrawal syndrome

Conclusion

Ziip pods fits in the Juul battery perfectly as they are designed specifically for the Juul. They are recommended to those who have just chosen to shift from smoking to vaping nicotine salts (with different flavors to choose from). They are perfect for people who don’t mind pods that are temperature controlled.

They offer different great flavors, and have awesome price. They perform great, too, but if you draw too many times and too hard consecutively, you might get an awful burnt flavor. Hitting it 8 to 10 times across a minute is recommended and you can then reinsert it to get rid of the burnt flavor.
Quitting smoking may be challenging. Additionally, cigarettes kills about 480000 Americans every year – making cigarette smoking the leading cause of preventable death. E-cigarettes help some longtime cigarette addicts quit smoking. Feel free to let us know your experience and thoughts about e-cigarettes like the Juul and pods like the these.
