Best Tobacco Vape Pods
Tobacco Vape Pods
If you use a refillable vaping device, check out our feature on the Best Tobacco Vape Juices. You can also peruse our tobacco ejuices options here. Today we are exploring the tobacco flavors available to prefilled vape pod users. Tobacco Pods for the Juul, Vuse, Alto, Bo, Clic, Phix and Cync have all been tasted, tested and reviewed. Thank goodness there are low nic options available.
Vaping came full circle when small and discrete vape kits surged in popularity. The most popular style of compact device is the convenient prefilled vape pod kit. This style of device perfect for beginning vapers and anyone looking for discrete and efficient vaping experience. Vape pod kits owe much of their popularity to nic salts. We examine this change in vape juice technology in our deep dive, What is Salt Nic?
It may be cold comfort in light of recent events but nicotine salt ejuices work exceptionally well with tobacco flavors. They are smooth and ideal for mouth to lung vaping. No matter what vape pod kit you use, there will be a solid nic salt tobacco vape pod available for you.
Below the flavor reviews, we address the current vaping climate as it stands today.
Best Juul Tobacco Pods
Ziip Pods Tobacco
At Vapor4Life, our goal to help smokers switch to vaping and for vapers to gradually reduce their nicotine level to zero and cease using our products entirely. Our Road to Zero campaign is based on this founding principle.
The road to zero nicotine has always been an option for vapers who use refillable devices. All of our tobacco e-juices have a zero nic option, but it was only recently that an onramp was opened for vape pod users, with the launch of nicotine free Juul compatible Ziip pods
The greater nic strength flexibility, and lower price point than Juul pods, does not come at the expense of flavor. Ziip Tobacco has a clean flavor. There is not much throat hit, but there is still plenty of complexity. This is a Virginia tobacco, so the flavor notes are bright and there is a familiar level of sweetness.
Ziip did a great job of mimicking the flavors that smokers are used to. At one time, many tobacco ejuices tasted more like an open pack of cigarettes and less like the cigarette itself. That isn’t an issue with Ziip Tobacco. It is mild and gratifying. There is a lightness to the flavor, but a satisfying richness on exhale.
Eon Pods Virginia Tobacco
A potent 6 percent nic salt blend, Eon Pods Virginia Tobacco was formulated for heavy smokers who love the real flavor of cigarettes. Rich and bold, this is a robust tobacco flavor with a smooth throat hit. With the 1ml pod size and greater nic strength, you also get a lot more bang for your buck when compared to a Juul pod. There is a pinch of tobacco sweetness, but there is no missing what this vape pod is all about: giving tobacco flavor a chance without smoking tobacco.
Juul Tobacco Pods
Juul Classic Tobacco
The aromatic Juul Classic Tobacco is an entry point into the world of vaping for many smokers. It has a lighter throat hit and more perfumed flavor than its stablemate Juul Original Tobacco. It is pretty realistic take on cigarette tobacco and well-formulated vape juice.
Juul Virginia Tobacco
Juul Virginia Tobacco is more robust than Juul Classic Tobacco. The Juul Virginia Tobacco has the quintessential American tobacco flavor profile. Like other Virginia tobacco ejuices, there is a pinch of sweetness on inhale. The throat hit is minimal but the exhale flavor is quite authentic. A worthy and popular tobacco vape juice formula.
Vuse Alto Tobacco Pods
Vuse Alto Original
RJ Reynolds certain knows tobacco, and the Vuse Alto has two of the best tobacco vape juices on the market. The Vuse Alto device delivers an outstanding vaping experience. It has a 350mAh battery and each pod contains 1.8ml of vape juice. Vuse flavors are available in 2.4 and 5 percent nicotine. The Vuse Alto generates more vapor than a Juul and operates silently.
Vuse Alto Original is a sweet tobacco. From inhale to exhale, the tobacco nic salt tastes remarkably similar to a cigarette. Wispy flavor notes are present on inhale, as complex and nuanced as any cigarette you have enjoyed. The exhale is smooth as silk. For all of the realism, there is a remarkable lightness to Vuse Alto Original. Perhaps this is why they have a second tobacco flavor with a bit more oomph.
Vuse Alto Rich Tobacco
Vuse Alto Rich Tobacco is a stronger and less sweet alternative to Vuse Alto Original. You almost expect your clothes and hair to stink after vaping it, that’s how well they captured the real cigarette flavor. Vuse is an RJ Reynolds product and tobacco is clearly in their wheelhouse. Rich Tobacco is ideal for heavy smokers, especially if full flavored cigarettes were your favorite. The depth of Rich Tobacco makes this an unusually satisfying vape. The Vuse has slightly more throat kick than the Juul, owing to its lower resistance coils.
Prefilled Tobacco Vape Pods
Phix Pods Tobacco
The Phix vape kit is a compact and reliable prefilled vape pod device. With a 280mAh battery and 1.5ml pods, it is designed to get you through the day and match a pack of cigarettes puff for puff. The great mouth to lung draw on the Phix, and a tremendous selection of flavors including Dinner Lady Lemon Tart, make it a superb option for prefilled vape pod fans.
Phix has a single tobacco option, aptly named Phix Original Tobacco. It has a very natural and soothing tobacco flavor. Ideal for anyone transitioning off of cigarettes, Phix has done an unusually good job of mirroring the smoking experience with this flavor. There is just the right level of sweetness, like a freshly lit cigarette, and the strong exhale flavor and mouth feel that smokers enjoy.
Bo Vape Gold Tobacco
Bo Vape is another player in the prefilled pod game. Their flagship device, the Bo Plus, has an 800mAh battery and delivers an admirable mouth to lung hit. With a battery that is far larger than its competitors and 1.5ml pod, it is a great no-hassle option. There is a smaller Bo Vape Starter kit which uses the same pods but has a smaller 380mAh battery.
But the Bo Vape would not be a viable contender without a strong roster of flavors. They have three tobacco flavors available. Bo Vape Gold Tobacco is a rich tobacco vape juice. It has only a hint of sweetness, vapers with a sweet tooth will want to check out Bo Vape Butterscotch Tobacco instead.
Bo Vape Gold Tobacco is a classic all day vape. It easily stacks up with the tobacco flavors in the industry. The flavor is realistic without being overpowering. It is richer than the standard Bo Vape Tobacco flavor. Instead, you are left with a dense and full-throated tobacco flavor.
Bo Vape Butterscotch Tobacco
Perhaps flying a bit too close to the dessert vape category, Bo Vape Butterscotch Tobacco is a sweet and delicious vape. The butterscotch notes are spot-on and very flavor forward. The tobacco is not an afterthought, but is more of a supporting actor than the star. Exhale draws out more the richness of the tobacco. For mouth lung vaping, this is a solid and enjoyable flavor.
Bo Vape Tobacco
Bo Vape Tobacco is brighter and slightly sweeter alternative to Bo Vape Gold Tobacco. Ideal for anyone looking for a tobacco ejuice, it is a brighter flavor and closely mimics a Virginia tobacco cigarette. Perhaps the most balanced of their tobaccos, this is a one-size fits all flavor that is easily enjoyed. The smooth nic salt hit is perfect for this silk cut tobacco flavor.
Clic Pods Original Red
The Clic is an affordable and hassle free prefilled vape pod system with a strong lineup of flavors. The Clic is powered by a 350mAh battery and uses 1.5ml pods.
Clic Pods Original Red is their take on classic tobacco. Designed to capture the flavor of a popular American cigarette brand, this is a throaty flavor with earthy notes and dash of sweetness. The nic salt finish is quite smooth for a 5 percent nic salt, and the realism is perfect for anyone new to vaping.
Clic Pods Havana
Clic Pods Havana is a richer flavor than original red, and has a creamy finish. The creaminess is particularly pronounced on inhale, and adds an extra layer of depth not available in tobacco vape juices that hew closely to the cigarette flavor formula. Available in 5 percent nic strength, this is a great option for heavy smokers.
Cync Pods Tobacco Trail
Designed for the Cync Device, Cuttwood Vape Juice has formulated one heck of a tobacco ejuice. Cync Tobacco Trail is a honey tobacco blend. The natural sweetness of Virginia tobacco is amplified and smoothed with a refreshing honey inhale and exhale. The tobacco itself is a pretty authentic take. The proper flavor notes are there and the essence of American cigarette tobacco floats beneath the crystalline layer of honey glaze. An altogether solid flavor, Cuttwood’s take on tobacco is a winner.
The potential removal of all flavors that aren’t tobacco from the market would be a huge setback to vapers and the vaping industry alike, with thousands put out of work. Adult smokers will lose their ash and smoke free cigarette alternative of choice. The willingness of politicians to strip away these options is no surprise since strict e-cig laws punish the marginalized.
The CDC reports that alcohol kills 4,300 minors annually and sends over 100,000. But since the wealthy imbibe more frequently than any other group, the dozen minors that die each day from underage drinking goes unreported. On the flip side of the coin, the wealthy largely gave up smoking a couple decades back. This is probably why they are willing eager to suppress an alien habit that is most common in the LGBTQ+ community and is already plagued with access issues in rural America, where prevalent smoking related illnesses lead to significantly worse outcomes on average.
That being said, tobacco flavors have come a long way.
Vape Flavor Ban
The insidious fruit flavor fallacy is a sinister conspiracy theory that alleges sweeter vape juices are “kid-friendly” and concocted with the express purpose of hooking minors on nicotine. It is the most persuasive of the zombie vaping myths. There seems to be no argument that will convince vaping critics that adults prefer sweet vape juice flavors, and that is why so many are based on the flavor profiles of candies and cereals that peaked in popularity when Reagan was still President.
The Safe Kids Act and Michigan flavor ban were bad enough, but now it appears that the White House will use its executive authority to push the FDA into cracking down on any vape flavor that is not tobacco. This appears to be a knee-jerk reaction to the careless reporting of a mysterious lung ailment. While we await for final word from public health authorities, there appears to be a consensus forming as to the cause of vaping lung disease. Vapor4Life products do not contain THC, cannabis or vitamin E compounds. We do not sell black market products.
The media refuses to differentiate vaping THC carts with newly devised vitamin E based thickening agents and the legal nicotine vaping. Whether they are ignorant, careless, intentionally obtuse or have thrown out their ethics in pursuit of a wider audience, this will surely be remembered as a dark-era of American journalism.
The news media writ large already has a serious credibility issue with significant segment of the population. It is unfortunate that nicotine vaping is paying the price for their decision to double down on clickbait, rather than putting in the work to get their facts straight.
Just three years ago, hundreds of babies were hurt by store bought homeopathic remedies. But since strict e-cig laws punish the marginalized, those impacted by ecig bans have far less influence. A traditional bastion of LGBTQ+ activism, San Francisco has punished their marginalized residents with a strict vape ban. In the process, the San Francisco e-cig ban has betrayed a long legacy of humane harm reduction policies.
The coverage of e-cigarettes in the media is akin to reporting an e. coli romaine lettuce outbreak as “produce illness” and “salad deaths.”
