How does a juul charger work?
Juul chargers work much like the original Juul charger. They use two magnetic connectors to charge the cell. Carrying cases/charging cases work similarly but have a different shape and form than the USB charger.
Any charger that is a cable needs a compatible USB port to function. The cases work by having the battery inserted into it. They are large enough to have an independent power source, like any power bank. There are other e-cig carrying/charging portable cases that work on the same principle of being a vessel to carry e-cigs cells, as well as charging them.
How do you know when it is done charging?
The device has a LED indicator light that shows battery life. Users need only to tap the device to check the level of the charge. The light will flash either green, yellow, or red depending on the output capacity left.
The LED light on the will turn green when the battery is finished charging using a standard charger — unofficial chargers for the e-cig work in the same way. The case or power bank type chargers also features LED indicator lights. The LEDs follow the same color scheme as the original devices.
What to do when it does not charge?
Off-brand Juul chargers became popular because the original USB charger came with problems. One problem was that the devices would not always charge the battery.
The reasons it would not work include the following:
Even though the e-cig sells itself as a maintenance-free device, there are some things users can do to make sure their charger is always working. If a device does not begin to charge when a user plugs it in, try:
- Cleaning the pod, and magnetic posts with rubbing alcohol
- Run another magnet across the posts to remove any dust or debris from the connections
If a Juul charger continues to malfunction even after using these tips, it might be time to contact Pax Labs customer service. Every device comes with a one-year warranty for the battery. The other option is to buy a separate, off-brand charger that will also charge it.
Where to buy a juul charger?
All Juul devices sold by authorized dealers include a USB charger. The basic kit (as most starter kits do) comes with just the e-cig cell and the charger. The other package consists of the device, charger, and four flavor pods.
A Juul charger alternative can be bought almost anywhere. Online vape stores and vendors, not only of vape gear but major retailers like Amazon, carry most, if not all, charging devices for the e-cig. Online vape shops may have a wider selection, and sell all kinds of different charging devices.
Specialty vape shops where people can buy the Juul kit may or may not carry alternative chargers for the battery, depending on whether they are authorized seller of the e-cig. Keep in mind that unauthorized chargers do not come with the actual e-cig. It must be bought separately.
Are they all the same?
Not all chargers are the same. As first stated in the beginning, aftermarket Juul chargers can be either:
- USB charging cables
- Carrying cases
- Power banks
- Car adapters
Even though they do not all look or work the same, these units all perform the same task, which is charging the e-cig’s battery. They have different indicator lights or physical setups, but the job is still the same.
Juul battery life is such that it needs recharging after heavy use. The battery only has a 200mAh capacity, so it needs to be recharged often. While some Juul alternatives offer more powerful batteries.
