The BRIK is a compact and lightweight JUUL portable charge case that can fully charge a JUUL up to three times before it needs to be recharged. But the best way to use it is to not wait at all for the JUUL to die. You can store the JUUL and charge it at the same time.
The BRIK charger is a solid portable charge case for the JUUL. It kept my JUUL consistently charged for a short weekend getaway without my JUUL or the charger ever dying. But, of course, the BRIK charger is not the only JUUL charge case available. There are several on the market. Even JUUL has one now called the JUUL Portable Charging Case.

I was recently on vacation in the Azores, Portugal and figured this would the perfect opportunity to put this charger through the wringer. The Azores are a group of small islands smack down in the middle of the Atlantic ocean and for the better part of the days, I would be away from a traditional wall outlet, so a portable charging option was necessary. This is where the Brik charger came into play.
