Previously, we have reviewed some of the best in our feature on Top Ten Juul Alternatives. The refillable vape pod market was redefined when Smok added a subohm option to the Smok Nord family, and creating several devices that are compatible with the Smok Nord coil set. During our review of the Smok Nord, it was impossible to miss the tremendous flavor that it generated. For this reason, the Nord was viewed as upgrade in our comparison test that matched up the Smok Nord versus Smok Novo. The Smok Novo line is not dead either, with rumblings of a Novo 2 being prepared for launch.
Since the launch of the original Nord, other new comers have arrived on the scene. The excellent Aspire AVP and the Smok Trinity Alpha, which uses Nord Coils, being two of the more prominent entries. The Smok Trinity Alpha is the first of what will probably be a series of Lost Vape Orion DNA Go style devices. The Orion DNA Go was an industry game changer, so it was natural that we pitted the Lost Vape Orion DNA Go versus the Smok Trinity Alpha.
The Voopoo Drag Baby Trio is a mini-mod that has the convenient size and performance to test cases with the best the pod world has to offer. The Baby Trio has the flavor and flexibility to compete with the best vape pods on the market.

Best Juul Cucumber Alternatives
Eon Pods Cucumber (Juul Compatible)
Fans of Juul Cucumber should definitely try Eon Pods Cucumber. It is the most natural and obvious Juul Cucumber alternative on the market.
Eon Pods have a few notable features that make them a great value. Each pod is 1ml, rather than 0.7ml, and this nearly 50 percent increase in nic salt volume makes a big difference. It is like getting almost 2 extra pods per 4 pack, 40 versus 28ml. They also have a stouter nic punch, 6 percent versus 5 percent. The financial calculus of prefilled versus refillable vape pods swings closer to equilibrium when you factor in the 20 percent greater nic strength, 43 percent more juice per pod, and lower price tag.
None of this matters if Eon Pods doesn’t deliver the cool and refreshing cucumber flavor that the Juul Cucumber faithful are looking for. Cucumber fans will not be disappointed. It has a slightly sweet and very realistic cucumber inhale. The throat kit is slightly stiffer. Balancing the sweetness of cucumber is the herbaceous, almost grassy herbal cucumber, exhale that makes Cool Cucumber such a compelling vape juice flavor. Fans of Cool Cucumber should definitely try Eon Pods take on this classic flavor.
Salty Fog Cucumber Mint Nic Salt Juice by Salty Fog
Eon Pods provide savings, but still cannot match the pure value and flexibility of a refillable vape pod. If you are interested in a refillable vape pod kit, but worried about finding a Juul Cucumber alternative, look no further. There are some amazing options available. Salty Fog Cucumber Mint is one of the best. Sold in a 30ml bottle, Salty Fog Cucumber Mint is available in three nicotine strengths: 4.8, 3.6 and 2.4 percent.
Originally known as Cool Cucumber, Juul Cucumber was viewed as being a complement to the wildly popular Juul Mint. Salty Fog delivers both flavor elements, and the result is a fusion of divine. This is light, sweet, airy vape juice with an authentic cucumber kick. Notes of the grassy, indescribable, cucumber flavor and mouthfeel perfectly complement the coolness of the mint. But the pepperminty flavor never overwhelms the cucumbers distinct sweetness, it is more of a soothing element that provides a bit of complexity and depth, without detracting for the realness of the cucumber flavor.
In terms of value and performance, disposable vapes have emerged as viable competition for prefilled vape pods. And they are matching them in flavor as well.
Puff Bar Cucumber demonstrates exactly why cucumber flavor makes such a unique alternative to menthol vape juice. Cucumber has the coolness that menthol vapers love, but does not have the dominant mint kick. Puff Bar Cucumber is one of the best I’ve tried. It flutters across your palate with subtle cucumber notes that are perceptibly sweet. There is a level of freshness that meshes quite well with the restrictive draw and muted nic salt throat hit.
You don’t need to buy a kit to enjoy Puff Bar Cucumber. This practical disposable vape contains 1.3ml of Eliquid and a battery that has more than enough endurance to vaporize every last drop. With a nic strength of 5 percent, there is plenty in each disposable for the daily vaper to enjoy. Puff Bar Cucumber has the flavor and kick to compete with the best vapes on the market. It is soothing and refreshing, with a realistic cucumber sweetness and no minty bite on exhale.
There is a third and increasingly popular way to vape nic salts: disposable vapes. Eon Stik Cucumber unleashes the same outstanding and balanced cucumber vaping experience in a disposable ecig. Only available in 6.8 percent strength, each disposable contains 1.3ml of nic salt vape juice. This is equivalent to almost two Juul pods.

Posh Cool Melon
Posh Cool Melon is blend of cucumber and classic melon flavors. Cool refers to cucumber. The synergy of melon and cucumber in vape juice is well-established. Posh Vapes delivers way more depth than you have any right to expect from a disposable vape.

With an emphasis on flavor and throat hit, there is no easier or more convenient way to enjoy the smooth and refreshing flavor of this cucumber-melon hybrid.
Cucumber Vape Juice
Cucumber would seem to be an unusual choice of vape juice flavor. Although technically a fruit, it is most often served as a vegetable. And frankly, there aren’t a whole lot of vegetables floating around a vape juice world saturated with cereal, candy, tropical fruits, beverages, menthols and tobaccos.
There is a reason why cucumber is such a popular flavor, and vapers do not flock to bitter root vegetables and pickled brines. Sweet flavors just taste good, and translate perfectly to vaping. Perhaps an intrepid company will make spicy and umami flavor bombs that redefine vaping. Until then, sweet is what works and cucumber stands alone with its incomparable green and rejuvenating taste.
Cucumber is marked by an impressive coolness and mildness. It is an extremely refreshing and subtle flavor. Not overly saccharine, it still has the sweetness that the majority of adult vapers prefer. It is also distinct enough, and balanced enough to be enjoyed all day. As politicians and regulators attack retro ejuices that are marketed to adults, Cucumber has largely escaped criticism. The concept behind cucumber vape juice is no frills, but the complexity and strength make it one of the most versatile and outstanding flavors on the market today.
