How many mL does a JUUL hold?

JUUL pods, also known as JUULpods, are cartridges that contain nicotine e-liquid and are used in JUUL e-cigarettes. JUUL pods come in different strengths and flavors and deliver around 200 puffs per pod. But how much e-liquid is actually contained in a standard JUUL pod?

The Basics of JUUL Pods

JUUL pods snap into the top of a JUUL e-cigarette device using magnets. When you take a puff from the JUUL, a battery heats up the e-liquid inside the pod and turns it into an inhalable vapor. JUUL pods were originally available in 5% nicotine strength (50 mg/mL nicotine) and 3% nicotine strength (30 mg/mL nicotine). More recently, lower nicotine strength pods have been introduced, like 1.7% (17 mg/mL) and 1.5% (15 mg/mL) nicotine versions.

In terms of flavors, JUUL pods come in options like Virginia Tobacco, Cool Mint, Mango, Crème Brulee, Fruit Medley, and more. Virginia Tobacco and Cool Mint tend to be the most popular. JUUL also makes limited edition and seasonal flavors from time to time.

Each JUUL pod is intended to be a single use product. Once the e-liquid inside is gone, the pod can simply be removed and replaced with a new one.

JUUL Pod E-Liquid Volume

Standard JUUL pods that contain 5% nicotine e-liquid hold approximately 0.7mL of vape juice. Here is a breakdown of the e-liquid capacity for different types of JUUL pods currently available:

  • 5% nicotine: 0.7mL per pod
  • 3% nicotine: 0.7mL per pod
  • 1.7% nicotine: 0.58mL per pod
  • 1.5% nicotine: 0.58mL per pod

So on average, most JUUL pods contain around 0.7mL of vape juice. The 5% and 3% nicotine strength pods contain 0.7mL, while the lower 1.7% and 1.5% nicotine strength versions contain slightly less at 0.58mL per pod.

How Many Puffs in a JUUL Pod?

The amount of e-liquid in a JUUL pod corresponds to around 200 puffs per pod. This is based on the average puff size for a JUUL being approximately 3-4 seconds long. Some key facts about puff count for JUUL pods:

  • 5% nicotine pods = approximately 200 puffs per pod
  • 3% nicotine pods = approximately 200 puffs per pod
  • 1.7% nicotine pods = approximately 240 puffs per pod
  • 1.5% nicotine pods = approximately 240 puffs per pod

Since the 1.7% and 1.5% nicotine strength versions contain slightly less e-liquid per pod, you get a few more puffs per pod compared to the higher strength options. But overall, expect around 200 puffs from each regular JUUL pod.

JUUL Pod Price Per mL

Based on the 0.7mL of e-liquid per pod, here is how the price per mL breaks down for JUUL pods:

  • JUUL pods (5% nicotine): $4.99 per pod / 0.7mL per pod = $7.13 per mL
  • JUUL pods (3% nicotine): $4.99 per pod / 0.7mL per pod = $7.13 per mL
  • JUUL pods (1.7% nicotine): $4.99 per pod / 0.58mL per pod = $8.60 per mL
  • JUUL pods (1.5% nicotine): $4.99 per pod / 0.58mL per pod = $8.60 per mL

Across all nicotine strengths, the cost works out to $7-9 per mL of JUUL pod e-liquid. This is significantly more expensive than buying bottles of vape juice. However, the convenience and consistent flavor of JUUL pods is a major selling point for many users.

JUUL Pod Capacity Can Vary

It’s important to note that while the e-liquid capacity for JUUL pods is estimated to be around 0.7mL on average, the exact amount can vary slightly between pods. There are a few factors that contribute to small capacity variations between JUUL pods:

  • Manufacturing tolerances – During high volume pod production, small deviations in the filling process can occur.
  • Absorption by wick – The cotton wick inside each pod will absorb some of the e-liquid which reduces the usable capacity.
  • Storage conditions – Exposure to high heat or cold conditions may cause slight expansion or contraction of the e-liquid volume.

The impact of these factors is small, leading to typical variations from 0.65mL on the low end to 0.75mL on the high end. But the average capacity of 0.7mL per pod is a reasonable expectation.

Refilling JUUL Pods

Some experienced JUUL users have figured out how to refill used JUUL pods instead of replacing them. This involves carefully removing the rubber cap from the bottom of the pod, adding new e-liquid, and replacing the cap. With a refilled pod, it’s possible to add up to 1mL of vape juice instead of the standard 0.7mL.

If you decide to attempt JUUL pod refilling, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Use e-liquid with the same PG/VG ratio as JUUL pods (50/50).
  • Make sure to fill slowly and avoid overfilling.
  • Put the rubber cap back on tightly so it does not leak.
  • Some leaking or spitting issues are common with refilled pods.

Refilling does enable more vape juice capacity per pod. But it takes effort and comes with some drawbacks. For most users, sticking to standard disposable pods is the simplest option.

JUUL Pod Capacity: Conclusion

On average, a standard JUUL pod contains around 0.7mL of nicotine e-liquid and will provide approximately 200 puffs before running out. This corresponds to full pods containing about 5% of a typical 10mL bottle of nicotine salt vape juice. While the capacity can vary slightly between pods, 0.7mL or 200 puffs per pod is typical for the 5% and 3% nicotine versions.

Knowing JUUL pod capacity helps you determine costs and how long pods will last before needing to be replaced. This depends partly on your own puffing behavior too. Light JUUL users may get up to 300 puffs from a single pod, while heavy vapers might only squeeze 150 puffs out of one. With the average puff per pod data in mind, you can better budget your usage.
