Geek Bar launches pod refill system with rechargeable battery

Geek Bar has launched its J1 Pod range in the UK featuring a pre-filled pod along with a rechargeable battery.

The J1 Pod has been developed with the UK market in mind, allowing consumers to switch flavours at lower cost.

Available through specialist vape retailers and convenience stores, it has an RRP of £8 for the pod system while a twin-pack of 2ml pod refills will cost £5. The 500mHA battery can be recharged via a USB device.

Featuring KA mesh coil technology, the J1 Pod provides more vapour and a more consistent, mellower flavour, and is prefilled with 20mg of nicotine and 2ml of e-liquid. Offering 600 puffs per device, it is designed for mouth-to-lung vapers in particular, who want to replicate the experience of smoking through a consistent throat hit.

The brand said the “smooth experience” is very different from the rough sensation associated with tobacco products and this may encourage more smokers to kick the habit and switch to vapes.

“The J1 Pod offers an alternative vaping experience for people looking to give up smoking tobacco products, especially at a time when incomes are being squeezed and a typical pack of 20 cigarettes can cost £10 or more,” they added.

It comes in the company’s newly designed packaging, which features a more visible age restriction warning against sale to minors.

To combat counterfeiting, the redesign also carries a prominent security code which retailers and consumers can use to check the authenticity of the product and ensure they are not buying a fake product.

The J1 is one of a number of upgraded vape devices now available from Geek Bar following approval from the Medicines Healthcare regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The J1 Pod comes in 11 flavour varieties, including: Ginger Soda, Tropical Skittles Blast, Orange Vanilla, Tropical Fruit, Lime Cherry, Mango Smoothie, Watermelon Ice, Pink Lemonade, Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava, Cheesy Blueberry Jelly and Lime Cactus.
