The Jac Vapour Puff Box is the disposable vape with a twist!

puff box main image

Disposable vapes are getting a lot of bad press right now – what if there was a way to keep the simplicity but without the waste?

Also using only disposables can be pretty expensive too. Jac Vapour report that a standard disposable can cost around 80p per 100 puffs. Whereas the Puff Box works out to around 42p per 100 puffs – almost 50% cheaper too!

What Can We Expect From The Jac Vapour Puff Box…

As mentioned above this is targeted to those who like a disposable vape – for the simplicity and flavour. The main device is basically the price of a single disposable and includes a pod!

In order to help prevent waste and also expense the Puff Box has a sustainable design. Even better you can post the pod refills back to Jac Vapour when they are empty and they will be recycled!

Basically the device is a rechargeable battery unit.

puff box reusable

It contains a 650mAh battery with a USB Type C port. The charging cable is not included but when you see the price of this you will understand why.

Also you can purchase a cable separately if you don’t have one lying about.

You simply inhale on the mouthpiece for the device to fire, so the simplicity is the same as a disposable.puff box twist vape

The pods are removable and come pre-filled with TPD friendly 2ml of e-liquid. This component is disposable.

Unfortunately the coil resistance and e-liquid VG/PG proportions are not specified.

Jac Vapour state that each pod should provide around 650 puffs and come in 6 flavour options…

  • Sunleaf Tobacco
  • Mango Ice
  • Absolute Menthol
  • Ki Berry Cool
  • Wings Blast
  • Pink lemonade

puff box flavours

The pods come in twin packs which are approximately the price of 2 disposables. There is only one strength option – 20mg Nicotine Salt.

Here is an introduction video from Jac Vapour…

You can choose from 3 colours and the included pod flavour changes according to the colour of the device – choose from Brilliant White (Pink Lemonade), Totally Teal (Wings Blast) and Vibrant Yellow (Mango Ice).

Design and Build Quality

The packaging is very basic but again consider the price of this and it all makes sense.

puff box wrapped

You get a device and a pod wrapped in a plastic wrapper. The wrapper is pretty informative with all the contents and ingredients clearly printed along with required warnings and legal logos.

puff box packaging

Inside there is a Puff Box and the corresponding pod and a small instruction leaflet.

The instructions are great but man are they tiny! I did struggle to read these even with my glasses on!

puff box instructions

Although I couldn’t find an online instruction manual, there is a troubleshooting guide here on the Jac Vapour website.

Puff Box Mod

This is a super compact and very smooth design. It fits in the hand beautifully!

puff box in hand

On the front is the Puff Box Logo and a contrasting stripe effect. The rear is exactly the same!

The right corner has a cut out to allow you to use a lanyard and below this is the USB Type C port and LED indicator.

puff box usb

The LED is quite bright and if you position the device correctly you can just about see it when vaping.

On the opposite site to the USB is a cut out, which I assume is so you can view the flavour of the pod installed.

puff box side views

The base features engraved legal logos, 2 screw heads and what I think is a battery vent. It doesn’t appear to be an airflow inlet as there is no difference to airflow when you cover it.

The pod compartment features a screw threaded contact area.

Due to the pod being screwed in there is no chance of it accidentally falling out and there is zero wobble to the pod when installed.

The pod arrives with protective silicone covers in the mouthpiece and on the pod base.

The pod base looks like a standard 510 thread and this screws into the device.

At the top of the pod is the small mouthpiece which has a round profile and is quite tiny really!

The pod body is colour coded with the flavour colour and includes the flavour name, nic strength and required legal logos.

Sadly you cannot see the e-liquid level remaining in the pod.

That really is all there is to it!

Quick Start Guide

The device arrives with protective covers on the pod and these will need to be removed and the pod correctly installed.

Basic Operation

  • Power On/Off: there is no on or off function.
  • Vaping: inhale on the mouthpiece and the device will fire automatically.
  • Battery indicator: there is no indicator but the Red LED will flash 10 times when the battery needs charging.
  • Charging status: the Red LED will illuminate and turn off when fully charged.


The LED indicator will tell you if any of the following issues occur.

  • Vaping: the LED will light up Blue when vaping.
  • Battery Low: the LED will flash Red 10 times. Get it charged!
  • Short circuit / over current: the device will cut out. Clean all connections, try replacing pod and if this still does not rectify the device may be faulty.
  • Time Over: if you vape for longer than 10 seconds the LED will flash 3 times and the firing will cut out – this is to prevent overheating. Simply vape again to resume.

How To Charge The Battery

  • Insert the small end of the included USB Type C cable into the charge port of the device.puff box charging
  • Insert the large end of the cable into a suitable USB outlet.
  • Leave to charge. The Red LED will illuminate to display the device is charging and will go out when fully charged.

Charging took around 1 hour 25 minutes for me.

How To Replace the Pod

Most fault conditions can be put down to the pod not being inserted correctly so follow the instructions to help prevent this.

  • Remove the pod from wrapper and remove the top and bottom silicone covers.jac vapour puff box pod preparation
  • Insert pod into device and turn clockwise to tighten.puff box pod removed
  • Draw on mouthpiece and the device should automatically fire.puff box pod installed
  • To remove the pod turn it anti-clockwise.

Jac Vapour Puff Box Performance

I was given all 6 pod flavours for review. Obviously everyones tastes vary so I will report back mainly on how the product performs and how close the flavours match the description.

Sunleaf Tobacco

puff box sunleaf tobacco

Jac Vapour Say:

A warm, toasted tobacco with a lovely rounded smoky flavour. Sunleaf Tobacco is the perfect everyday tobacco Puff Box Refill, ideal for those transitioning from smoking to vaping.

I Say:

Honestly I have been dreading this one. When I first tried vaping in around 2012 (days of the EGO) there was only really Tobacco or Menthol e-liquid flavours and I didn’t enjoy either so I gave up vaping!

The smell opening the pack of pods reminds me of the chemical Tobacco flavours from back in the day – so I really hope this tastes better than it smells.

This is OK, there is thankfully a Caramel flavour which takes the yukky ashtray taste away which you find in many Tobacco flavours.

The Toffee flavouring saves this flavour for me. I do get a slight tobacco waft in the background but not enough to be off-putting.

As Tobacco goes this is one of the better ones and I would personally re-name it as Tobacco Caramel as that might represent what the product actually produces more accurately.

I can’t vape this flavour for long as it is not something I would enjoy, but I am very thankful that there is some blending to make what is usually a horrible vape into something more palatable.

Personally although I dislike this, it is way better than I anticipated and easily scores a good 9/10.

Mango Ice

puff box mango ice

Jac Vapour Say:

A sweet and tangy mango with a refreshing menthol finish. Mango Ice is like sipping on a Mango Slushie, the perfectly fruity and refreshing Puff Box refill.

I Say:

I really am not a Mango fan and am often puzzled by how popular this flavour is. So with this in mind I am not looking forward to this one!

Thankfully the cooling just about makes this flavour palatable for me. It takes the edge off the earthy (almost soily) Mango taste.

Just as I feel the Mango is becoming unbearable the ice kicks in and takes it from being yuk to decent.

The description says “Menthol” but I relate that to being a Eucalyptus flavour, which I am not tasting at all here. But there is definite cooling so I would amend the flavour description to “A sweet and tangy Melon with a refreshing cooling/icy finish”.

So for this it does drop a mark for not meeting the description, but I have to say Jac Vapour have blended this so well. So well in fact I am vaping Mango without wanting to spew – so for that I applaud them!

The Mango seems authentic to me as I am not liking it at all but the vape is saved by the blending. If you are a Mango fan you will not be disappointed at all!

Absolute Menthol

puff box absolute menthol

Jac Vapour Say:

Bold and icy menthol blast. Absolute Menthol is an absolute classic vape, refreshing and clean, the perfect everyday Puff Box Refill.

I Say:

I am quite partial to a bit of Menthol but in small doses, for instance it is not an “all day vape” for me as it can leave me feeling a bit Nauseous!

If you were expecting just a Minty flavour then you will be disappointed. This does have an abundance of Mint but it is also accompanied buy the Eucalyptus Menthol flavour too.

Think of eating a cough sweet then scoffing down a Polo mint after and that’s where this flavour takes you.

It has been yonks since I had a Menthol cigarette so I can’t remember if you get the Eucalyptus flavour in one?

This is also a very cold vape which you would expect, blimey my mouth is colder than my car windscreen right now.

So if you like the “Menthol” and “Mint” combo you would be perfectly happy with this flavour. But if you are more “Mint” inclined you might be a bit unhappy with the Menthol component.

It does of course fit with the description so on that basis I will score it 9/10 but I do think perhaps the Eucalyptus should be emphasised a bit more in the description as some people think of “Menthol” as just being cold and Minty.

Ki Berry Cool

puff box ki berry cool

Jac Vapour Say:

A fruity flavour experience, with undertones of Kiwi, Blueberry with a mild, cool blast to round off the flavour sensation. Ki Berry Cool Puff Box Refill is the fruity vape you crave.

I Say:

Previous interactions with Kiwi in vapes has not been a happy one for me, so I am glad there are other ingredients mixed in with it here!

I am a Berry fan so I am hopeful that the Berries take centre stage!

I do get the “Washing up liquid” Kiwi vibe on the inhale unfortunately but this flavour is saved by the Berries taking over on the exhale.

If I was just judging this on the inhale I would be a bit gutted, but thankfully the beautiful Berry blend overtakes the detergent taste and saves the day!

So this really lives up to the description and there is a slight cooling left on your tongue post vape.

Although not my favourite I have to give this 10/10 for being accurately described. It says what it does on the pod!

Wings Blast

puff box wings blast

Jac Vapour Say:

Tangy, Citrus and sweet energy drink flavoured Puff Box Refill. Wings Blast is the ideal Puff Box refill when needing that zap of energy when clubbing, travelling or late night hustle sessions.

I Say:

This is nice. I get a mainly Berry flavoured vape, hard to pinpoint which Berry as it has a beautiful blend of many!

There is a slight Citrus tang on the exhale, again which I am unable to specify which fruit it actually belongs to.

Sometimes it is a sign of an excellent blend if you get the flavour but are unable to pick out which flavours are prominent.

I would say on the inhale it is Berries and on the exhale there is the Citrus.

It is not my preferred flavour profile at all, but it does blend together well.

As for whether it mimics the drink it is based on, I can’t remember what the large Red Bovine drink tastes like – it’s been years! Whenever I drank it, it gave me a massive headache so I wasn’t a huge fan!

All in all this flavour is pleasant and blended very well.

Pink Lemonade

Puff box pink lemonade

Jac Vapour Say:

Zesty, sweet Lemonade with berries and an icy menthol finish. Pink Lemonade Puff Box Refill is so delicious and refreshing for any occasion, a great everyday vape.

I Say:

Wow this is flipping delicious! I tried this flavour first as this is something I would choose myself!

There is a cooling going on here but it is not too much to overpower the actual flavour.

The blending here is absolutely top quality and the Lemon is not too tangy and the beautiful berries take the high notes.

I really love this 10/10!


The airflow is not adjustable so you are stuck with the setting it comes with.

However there is nothing to complain about here at all – it is a very tight MTL which allows the auto draw to trigger instantly. Not to the point of turning blue when vaping but very restricted, ideal for ex-smokers.

After using this when I go back to my pod kits I am closing the airflow down to replicate the tight draw of the Puff Box!


No leaks at all and all the pods arrived in perfect condition – not leaking into the packaging either!


The device performs well and is so easy to use.

I would like a better battery indication as you only know the battery is about to conk when the Red LED comes on. But again this device is designed on a budget in order to compete with disposables and perhaps adding extra features would take it out of the price range.

Battery / Pod Life

Obviously this will vary according to your own vape habits.

When it comes to puff count I found this varies a lot.

The first pod achieved 293 puffs and the second 441. The third achieved 447.

This is below the 650 promised? I am not sure if it is because I take longer inhales? I assume my vaping style may be to blame as the number of puffs per charge did vary the same. I do take long inhales on my usual MTL vapes.

As the pod died I did get some horrible dry hits which was a shame. It would be nice to have some sort of warning this was imminent as nobody likes a dry hit – urgh!

Due to the strength of these pods being 20mg (well above my current 6mg) I couldn’t time how long the battery lasted. I was just using this kit in small bursts as I got Niccups (Hiccups which I get from too much nic – even had this with cigarettes yonks ago!) So instead I counted the number of puffs per charge. I got 293 first time, 407 the second time and 442 the third time before the device finally conked out.

The last 10-15 vapes were very very weak with the Red LED illuminating and I was taking very long inhales.


  • Less waste and expense compared to standard disposables
  • Device itself is very inexpensive
  • Two pods are approximately the same price as 1 disposable
  • Super cute design
  • Device feels rugged
  • All pods worked perfectly, no leaks or malfunctions
  • Extremely simple to use
  • Return empty pods to Jac Vapour and they will be recycled!
  • 6 flavours to choose from


  • No battery charge indicator, it will only indicate when battery is fully discharged
  • Unable to see e-liquid level – you only know pod is spent when you get a vile dry hit
  • No USB cable included, but this does keep the price down
  • Only 1 nicotine strength – 20mg – would be good to offer lower strengths too
  • The puff count for me was lower than advertised, but that could be down to me taking longer inhales?
  • Quite long charging time 1 hour 25 mins

Final Review Verdict

This kit is really lovely, a brilliant design and excellent build quality.

The main question is – “would I prefer this to a disposable”?

The answer for me is “Hell yes!”

With a totally sustainable pod system, so much less waste and the economy of this kit makes it a no brainer compared to a standard disposable.

Add to that the fact Jac Vapour will recycle used pods and this could be the way forward.

I would like a better battery indication as this only tells you when the battery is going to conk out. Plus it would be good to see the remaining e-liquid level to warn you in advance to get another pod ready.

Also this is only available in 20mg nicotine strengths. Personally that was too strong for me, so options of say 10 and 5mg would be great to see.

The flavours all scored well, even if they weren’t my cup of tea they still in general met the descriptions.

If you are a regular Disposable user I urge you to give this device a try, it will save you money, help with environmental concerns and still give you that simple flavourful vape you enjoy!

Oh and the Nic Hit is off the scale – ideal for quitting the smokes!
