RELX vs Juul, which is better?


We compare RELX and Juul in several aspects including price, flavors, pods, vaping puffs, battery life, product quality, customer reviews, charging, availability, look, weight, portability, manufacturer, company background to find out which one is better. With real experience and hands-on and careful research, we drew a conclusion that RELX is better than Juul.

The models we are going to compare in the following article are the best selling ones of each brand, RELX JUUL STARTER KIT and JUUL STARTER KIT, which includes pods

Price – RELX vs Juul

RELX: $39.99

Juul: $49.99

Observing from this, Juul starter kit is more expensive than RELX, its price is 1/4 higher than RELX. Considering RELX is from China, and its shipping fee is not included when buying it in the USA or UK, RELX would only be 5 USD cheaper than Juul.

Flavors – RELX vs Juul

RELX: 8 flavors

relx pods flavors

Juul: 8 flavors

As you can see, though they have the same quantity of flavors, RELX has richer flavors than Juul. Because Mint and Mentol, Virginia tobacco and classic tobacco of Juul have a very similar taste while all of RELX’s flavors are totally different. Besides, RELX’s Ludou flavor that Juul does not include is hot-selling worldwide.

JUUL hits hard, almost unpleasant, while the RELX produces good amount of vapor, without that irritating kick to the throat. I definitely enjoy session-vaping it if I’m sketching or working out something and concentrating

Pods – RELX vs Juul

RELX: $16.99/1 pack (3 pods), 2mL/pod,5%/3% nicotine

Juul: $15.99/1 pack (4 pods), 0.7mL/pod, 5%/3% nicotine

It’s kind of strange when you see RELX pods are even more expensive than Juul. However, when you take a close look at it, RELX is still cheaper than Juul, because RELX pods capacity is about 3 times larger than Juul. That’s to say, 3 Juul pods equal only 1 RELX pod. How dare Juul sell it so expensive?

You might say Juul takes the use of nicotine salt in e-liquids. Please stop it, RELX is also using the absolutely same e-liquid formula.

RELX pods are sturdier, more solid design of the device and the pods. The pods are quite solid, so they don’t tend to leak or make a mess, but they’re also disposable only, so I tend to get a pack of pods every few weeks.

Moreover, RELX’s FEELM inside atomizing core is an award-winning technology in Germany (Golden Leaf Award) while Juul has nothing new in atomizing technology.


Puffs – RELX vs Juul

RELX: 650 puffs

Juul: 200 puffs

RELX wins too easily in this match. As a Juul user or an old smoker, 200 puffs can merely satisfy the daily needs of vaping. Forgetting the pods at home would be a disaster that occurs often to Juul users. As to RELX, its pod would be able to support an old smoker’s 3 or 4 days vaping needs.

Battery life – RELX vs Juul

RELX: 350mAh

Juul: 200 mAh

RELX pods have a large capacity than Juul, so they need a larger battery to support a longer vaping time. RELX battery life is longer than Juul according to the specification

Product quality – RELX vs Juul


RELX is said to have serious e-liquids leakage and burnt odor in some pods.


juul pod leakage

Juul is said to have some device not working and e-liquids leaking problems as well.

Both products are innovative brand new products. Therefore, some defects in the new products are inevitable. This round the 2 brands tie.

Customer reviews – RELX vs Juul


Positive overall, fewer reviews than Juul since its a newer brand than Juul. According to our own user experience, it’s tobacco flavor and product experience is great.

Use an ordinary Android phone USB cable to charge. This cable is able to to be found anywhere. You can even share the USB cable of your phone if the cable with start kit is lost.


Use a charging dock to charge. You cannot charge any more if your dock is lost.

Look/Appearance – RELX vs Juul

The form-factor of RELX is more attractive, and it feels less flimsy than a JUUL.

Everyone has his or her own preferences. It’s hard to tell which one is better. Round and rectangle shape design both have their own merits.

Weight/Portability – RELX vs Juul

RELX: 21 grams, 10 cm * 2 cm

Juul is smaller in size, more portable. However, according to user pictures, their sizes are almost the same.

Manufacturer – RELX vs Juul

RELX: Smoore

Juul: Asteelflash

Their manufacturers are both based in China and they are both famous manufacturers in the vape industry. However, RELX is closer to the supply chain and able to control the supply chain and product quality more closely at a lower cost. The communication cost of RELX is lower than Juul since it’s a China-based company itself. Just like Apple and Huawei in the mobile phone industry, Apple was the best selling one at first but now its number one position is replaced by Huawei while they’re both mainly produced in China.



We’ve searched through the whole internet but found little information about RELX vs Juul. Therefore, this article is elaborated and written carefully based on actual product performance and user experience of the 2 most famous vape brands. Hopefully, this article would be of help when you have difficulty in choosing between the 2 brands that both look good.

Some Chinese people despise vapers who use the domestic brand. However, when people found the domestic products also perform well or even better than the overseas ones, people who admire foreign brands blindly would be regarded as the authentic dumb ones finally.

The downside of RELX is, if you’re located out of China, the e-liquid is less available. You have to order pods online. We haven’t really seen them around in convenience stores, whereas you can see JUUL pods everywhere in the USA. However, Vapehk believes that with more and more overseas agents starting selling RELX, it will be much more available out of China. It’s reported by an insider that a RELX dealer has established a warehouse in the USA and is able to ship RELX starter kits and pods by FedEx or UPS to every corner of the USA in 1 day at a very humble price compared to Juul.
