And on the eighth day, God created JUUL pods, and smokers everywhere rejoiced. All things considered, it was probably day nine or ten, but who's actually counting. When the JUUL launched in 2015, it was a light at the end of the tunnel for people who'd struggled for years with their tobacco addiction. The JUUL was engineering and ingenuity at its finest, a product designed to help you get your nicotine with a similar sensation to smoking without all the risk, hazard, and stigma involved with cigarettes. In fact, the JUUL exceeded long-time smokers' expectations by over-delivering. It gave you convenience along with new and exciting flavors to try in a refillable form. 

Fast-forward to 2020. JUUL isn't the only game in town. Now it's got some competition, and I don't mean cheap knock offs. I mean quality products. One of those is the STLTH brand. So why don't we put a STLTH stater kit next to the granddaddy of them all, the JUUL, and see how it performs?

JUUL vs. STLTH: product overview

If you're new to vaping you might be asking, "Aren't all vapes created equal?" 

Not. At. All. 

With the JUUL and STLTH brands, you have two high-quality vaping devices with subtle design differences. Both are USB rechargeable, meaning you can power them off a computer or any other USB charging method. The JUUL offers customers a great entry-level device with a 200mAh battery, whereas the STLTH model has a much bigger 420mAh battery. It really comes down to a matter of preference. 

While both units are draw-activated, meaning that inhaling turns the unit off and on, the only other major design difference is that the JUUL is thinner and smaller. Conversely, the STLTH is slightly wider and a little longer. The difference is ultimately nominal. Using a JUUL is like wading into the water to see if you like it. The STLTH is more like jumping right in.

What's in a starter kit?

Each product comes with its own starter kit to help first-time vapers get set up with everything they need right out of the box. 

The JUUL starter kit includes the basic vaping device in its standard slate color, a proprietary USB charging dock, and four pre-filled pods in different flavors. 

What about the STLTH starter kit? What does it include? The STLTH starter pack is kind of like the JUUL kit with a little extra. Their starter pack, offered through iLL! HQ, includes the STLTH vape device in a wide variety of colors, a USB charging dock, instruction manual, and refill pods to get you up and running. 

What about those refill pods? Let's talk about those for a minute because they're what makes all the difference when it comes to choosing a STLTH product. 

Available pod flavors

JUUL was the industry pioneer there's no doubt about that. They changed the market by offering different vape flavors. Their starter pack includes:

  • Mango
  • Mint
  • Virginia tobacco
  • Vanilla

While they come out with a new flavor offering every once in a while, there's not much else. Their focus is on quality and ease of transition from cigarette smoke, and there's nothing wrong with that. 

STLTH, on the other hand, has partnered with Fruitbae and Naked 100 to bring a full line of flavor pods. iLL! HQ currently carries:

  • Apple
  • Berries
  • Blue raspberry
  • Cream
  • Flavorless
  • Grapefruit
  • Guava
  • Honeydew
  • Lemon
  • Mango
  • Menthol
  • Mint
  • Orange
  • Passion fruit
  • Pineapple
  • Raspberry
  • Tobacco
  • Watermelon
  • And many more available

You can see from the list that STLTH is all about options, which means product longevity. You'll never get bored with your STLTH kit with all these options available. Luckily, iLL! HQ is your hook up for all things STLTH. We offer the starter kits you need to make the transition to a STLTH product. Come check us out online or in person today.
