    Hey I just got into using a Juul, switched from a box mod vape to a juul a few days ago. I find it inconvenient to plug it in the wall for it to charge while sticking out and then have to hold the pods in my pocket or in a bag. Wouldn't it be a lot more convenient and useful to have a thin case for the juul that holds a extra pod and charges it a couple times?

    I totally agree. They are so easy to lose. I've probably had to buy at LEAST 30 new sticks because I'm either losing them or they just stop working all of a sudden.

    Was a smoker for 10+ years and was never able to quit until this technology. I notice a couple of recurring problems with this, a big one being that some brand new sticks hit differently. Also, I've found that sticks will eventually lose their strength (in terms of powerful hits) and they also just stop turning on/charging all together. Juul claims to have a decent return policy, but I'm not sure if people are actually taking advantage of that given how often a stick can have problems.

    Also, due to many Pod droughts over the past few months (every store in NYC is sold out), I've had to pay almost double the cost through shady eBay dealers. On one shipment of pods, I noticed that the taste was very off - almost as if it was rotten. I couldn't tell exactly what it was, just that it wasn't right. Was very confused by that occurrence.

    Right now my main concern is local availability and figuring out how to prolong the sticks lifespan.

    Things that have worked for me:

    1. Using a dry toothbrush to scrub the charging connectors on the stick. You will notice over time that wear and tear makes the four gold holes black. This in turn will affect how it charges, if very dirty, the stick won't charge at all. Dirty charges also make a mess of the actual charger. I have read that a magnetic screwdriver works for the charger, but I vigorously scrub the charger with a toothbrush as well.

    2. If using old pods without leak pads, blow in to the pod BEFORE sticking it in to the Juul. Blowing air into the pod will wash away any residual liquid. Blowing air into the pod has helped IMMENSELY with leakage.

    3. For more advanced users, check out this cool hack. In the video, the guy shows you how to take apart the pod (could also be used to refill the juice though i have never done that) and cut part of the plastic for a wildly improved throat hit and maximum flavor - i've tried this and it really really works.

    Finally, does any one have any more cleaning advice? Or advice on how to prolong the life span of the sticks and/or increase the throat hit and flavor?

    Piece of advice,
