The Vuse Alto e-cig is a prefilled vape pod system made in the USA by the tobacco experts at RJ Reynolds. It features a 350 mAh battery, which is almost twice as large as a Juul, and easy charge technology. It is a salt nic vape pod that is perfect for ex-smokers and vapers looking for a compact and discrete device. Each pod contains 1.8ml of nic salt ejuice and is available in 1.8, 2.5 and 5 percent nic strength.
The Vuse Alto Kit’s magnetic connection allows you to vape when it is charging. With proprietary SmartDraw™ and SmartPower™ technology, the Vuse Alto delivers a perfect puff every time. Vuse Alto vape pods are sold separately, and are required to complete the Vuse Alto vape kit.
Vuse Alto Vape Kit
You know what the Vuse Alto is here for. It was designed to take on Juul, and make its mark in the prefilled vape pod market. We pitted the two against each other in our Juul versus Vuse Alto comparison test.
The single minded purpose of the Vuse Alto evident in every detail. It was born as a Juul alternative. Four nicotine salt juice flavors is not much when compared to the universe of nicotine salt juice available for a refillable vape pod, but this limited selection might be a feature for vacillating first time vaper at a convenience store who has smoked the same brand of cigarettes for decades.
Once out the box, the Vuse Alto is slightly taller and wider than a Juul. It is still compact, measuring 4 inches in height and slightly over a half inch wide. The first thing you will notice about the Alto is how much stiffer it hits than a Juul, or almost any prefilled salt nic pod. This device was designed as a smoking alternative. Full stop.
The Vuse Alto generates this bigger cloud production with a 1.1ohm coil. Juul is cagey about the resistance of their pods, it has been said to vary between flavors. Most estimates place the resistance between 1.8 to 2.0 ohms. But the Vuse Alto has a battery that is 75 percent larger, and the longer legged of the two. The Alto takes only an hour to charge on its proprietary USB cable.
The second thing you will notice about the Vuse Alto is that it is almost totally silent. We advocate adhering to basic vaping etiquette, but this is your device if you want to vape on the sly. It does pack a bigger vapor punch that its rivals, so keep that in mind though.
Vuse Alto Pod Flavors
We hope more nic salt flavors become available for the Vuse Alto, but they deserve credit for doing a great job with the four that are available. They are simply outstanding.
The Mixed Berry is a jammy and delightful. Vuse Alto Menthol Pods is a spearminty fresh flavor that will satisfy menthol smokers, and can go head-to-head with a certain mint flavored pod juggernaut. Since this is RJ Reynolds, it only makes sense that there are a couple tobacco flavors to choose from as well.
The Alto Original Tobacco packs a nice throat kick, and the Alto Rich Tobacco has more robust flavor. Both have an authentic flavor. These are all great nic salt juices and make the Vuse Alto a serious player in the vape pod arena.
The Vuse Alto e cig is worthy competitor, but pods are sold separately for the Vuse Alto E-Cig and Vape Kit. This said, a Vuse Alto is a fairly good price performer for a prefilled pod system. Each pod holds 1.8ml of nic salt juice, and RJ Reynolds uses only the best nicotine salts. The combination is a strong one. If you are in the market for a vape pod, make sure you check out the Vuse Alto E-Cig and Vape Kit.
