    On a similar note, there is a way to refill juul pods with nic salt, the coils should be ok for another 3-4 refills according to some websites, will let you know how I get on

    There's a lot of refillable pod system out there now, prob a better option than trying to rip open sealed ones.

    Has anyone managed to get the US pods to Ireland?

    I was in New York for a few weeks and brought back some 5% pods for my Juul. They make a huge difference in keeping me off the cigarettes.

    When they ran out i ordered some off of the UK Juul site through parcel motel. The 1.7% isn't as satisfying and I find I'm going through them faster.

    Is there anyway to get them to Ireland at a reasonable price? I've used An Post's US delivery service before but they have to open the package and charge an import duty. I'm not sure if its legal to import them plus the cost would be crazy.

    Is there any cheaper alternative?

    I got my device over in the states, but I also buy pods from Californian Vape store online and get them shipped to Ireland, shipping usually takes less than a week as it's via DHL, although shipping is approx 30usd which is a pain but for the 5% strength it's worth it.

    @CawleyKid whats the name of the website that ship to Ireland?

    Oh, the buzz around Juuls is fully reasonable. Cool item. I bought my first one from Migvapor. I would use it til now, but gave to my friend and bought a new one. So, for me, Juul is awesome!)

    It's great for its size and nicotine hit, in the eu the regulation limits nicotine in vapor to 20mg, in the US the Juul pods are 57mg, so roughly three times the strength.

    Problem is getting the 57mg pods here. You can get 20mg pods shipped from the Uk through parcel motel which are great but if you're looking for the buzz it won't be the same.

    Handier than carrying around a box of smokes and a lighter and there's no smell either. If you're not a smoker I'd recommend getting another device as there's a lot nicer tasting flavours out there that will do the job.

    Does anyone have a link for a shop in the US that will post 5% pods over here?

    It is excellent with 5% strength, I accidentally stopped smoking after 15 years of 20 a day by buying juul in USA.

    I recently moved to Firefly 2 for dry herb so 100% combustion free now, not to mention the firefly uses about 10% of dry herb for an even better effect than combustion!

    https://www.irishtimes.com/business/retail-and-services/us-e-cigarette-maker-juul-labs-launches-in-irish-market-1.3884157
    US e-cigarette maker Juul Labs is targeting the Republic’s 830,000 smokers following its launch here on Tuesday.

    Juul, 35 per cent owned by Marlboro parent Altria, is the leading US manufacturer of vapes, less harmful cigarette replacements whose users inhale vapour containing nicotine rather than smoke.

    The company hopes to convert the Republic’s estimated 830,000 adult smokers from tobacco to its products, according to Grant Winterton, its Europe, Middle East and Africa president.

    Circle K service stations and specialist Hale vaping shops will initially sell Juul’s products.

    Its a shame the EU scam TPD laws prohibit the best way to stop primitive smoking. 1.7% is just not enough for a lot of smokers to completely give up combustable cigs.

    Shame on the EU.

    3% and 5% should be allowed in EU, same as USA, a modern nation.

    With the Juul now at every circle k I imagine that it will become rapidly more popular in Ireland. I like the idea and I've seen many good reviews. What stops me is the disposable aspect of the pods. Yes, you can get refillable ones, I've seen them on amazon- but in general, what do you guys do with the pods? The Juul website says it's hazardous waste and should be disposed as such. Do you? Where do you bring it? There's hardly a Juul pods container at the Ballymount Recycling Centre. Do you put it where the light bulbs are supposed to go or where???
    Apparently, Juul pod pollution everywhere is a huge issue in the US, as the Juul seems super popular with the kids there.
    Any thoughts?

    My thoughts are, as I said in the other thread, the waste from the Juul and all other replaceable pod systems is bordering on criminal in this day and age .

    Plus Juul is owned by Big Tobacco, something I have no intention of giving any more money to .

    Very true, there must be mountains of them in landfills. They only hold 0.7ml of liquid so 14 of them equals a 10ml bottle.

    Does anyone know which Circle K's in Cork sell the actual starter pack?

    I visited my two local ones in Bandon and all they had was the liquids/tops

    Altria invested in them recently as they need the lobby power of big tobacco. The EU is not helping smokers give up with the TPD laws, I would still be smoking tobacco only for I accidentally gave it up after discovering 5% JuuL while in USA.

    No, Altria invested in them to make money and people accepted the money because they want more money. There's no noble aspect or angle to any of it.
    The TPD stuff can be argued (I know people who went from 30-40 smokes a day onto 18mg no problem and quickly down to 12) but there's no goodness coming from Altria.

    The sales *pitch* that I was given on entering a Circle K about 4 weeks back to counter my arguement that the whole pod is disposable...

    "Ah yes, but the liquid that is in them is regulated!!
    You are refilling a MTL device with 10ml bottles of liquid, and you have no idea what you're putting in the pod"

    I was genuinely so flabbergasted and almost furious at the sales pitch that I just laughed and walked away or it was about to become very heated!! I looked at the girl and just said "Seriously??? You are going to tell me that the Juul is amazing because the contents are regulated. What about TPD?"

    Her response.....What's TPD mean?? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Had similar here but quit already. The lowest mg the entire city sells is 30mg so I'm back to my 3mg regular vape.


  • Registered Users Posts: 40 gledge


    Mad-Mike no need to buy if you don't agree with it, I don't see the point in getting into an argument with someone who's job it is to sell petrol.....christ I feel sorry for cashiers in this country

    This wasn't somebody selling petrol.
    It was a girl brought in for merchandising and had a stand set up just inside the main door
    Just annoys me that they can come out with statements like that and blatantly lie to people who don't know any different and make them doubt the integrity of the TPD compliant juice they are already using!

    Tried a puff of one in the local Hale and was thoroughly underwhelmed.

    Like all of these pod devices they are cheaper than smoking but still wildly more expensive than vaping a proper mod that you can actually get a hit off?

    Really failing to see the appeal, outside of being easy to hide for teenagers, which is the core market in the US in the first place.

    The NEW JUUL C1: The answer to “youth vaping”?..


    JUUL is looking to redeem themselves with the C1. This new device features Bluetooth technology for age verification, tracking, and more! Is this the end to youth vaping?


    ^^^ No way am I sharing that info with a company just to vape!?
