Disposable vapes are roughly the same as 20 cigarettes and are a healthier, better value option to smoking. They are filled with a nic salt e-liquid that is often between 16mg and 20mg strength.
Disposable vape pod kits give a very smooth vape with an intense flavour. You can be ready to vape in seconds as there is no mess, no fuss and nothing to set up. Just remove your disposable from the pack and you are ready. Ideal for a night out, holiday or day away, they are a great compact vape.
What Is A Disposable Vape?
Disposable vapes are single use e-cigs. When the battery or e-liquid has run out you simply dispose* of them and start using another one.
These slim vape kits come with a fully charged battery, prefilled with liquid and a vape coil already installed. There is no battery to charge, no coils to change, no e-liquid to fill and they are the easiest way to vape. All you do is remove the kit from its box and inhale to vape.
Disposables get you about the same puffs as a pack of 20 cigarettes. Most have nic salt e-liquid between 16mg and 20mg strength and have a battery between 280mAh and 700mAh.

How Does A Disposable Vape Work?
In short, very easily. There is nothing to set up or maintain with a disposable vape.
Just remove your kit from the box and remove any rubber bungs from the top or bottom of the disposable. Then inhale to activate it.
That’s it! You don’t need to fill it with e liquid, charge the battery or change the vape coil. You don’t even need to press a button, simply vape away until the liquid has run out.
How Long Does A Disposable Pod Last?
A disposable vape will last depending on how much e liquid it contains, how big the battery is and how much you vape.
These kits have around 1.2ml and 2ml of e-liquid, with the batteries around 280mAh and 700mAh. When you need to replace it, the e-liquid will run dry or the battery will run out of charge and stop working. If you take long, heavy puffs then your kit won’t last as long as someone who vapes less often with a shorter inhale.
Each disposable should have the total puffs on the box. As an example, the Elf Bar can last up to 600 puffs. Some vapers may get less than this if they are a heavy vaper, while some people may get more than 600.
What Is The Best Disposable Vape?
The Elf Bar is one of the most popular kits at the moment. With loads of flavours to choose from, and up to 600 puffs from each one, this kit should be your first stop when trying out a disposable vape.
There are others available too like the Geek Bar, and the best disposable vape is the one that in the end stops you smoking cigarettes and keeps you away from smoking for good.
Should I Buy A Disposable Vape?
If you like the idea of a vape that needs no upkeep and can be vaped right out the box with no prep, then yes you should. Also, if you’re a smoker who wants to try vaping before buying a proper kit and e-liquid, then a disposable vape is a great entry point to vaping.
You might also want to have a disposable vape for a few reasons:
Nights out - You may have invested to get your ideal vape set up and you don’t want to take that out for a night. A disposable is ideal for this, fits in your pocket easily, has great nicotine delivery and you won’t stress too much if you lose it.
A day out / holiday - You are probably taking your vape with you. But if you are away from your vaping supplies and your battery dies, your coil needs a change or you run out of e-liquid, a disposable vape is a great back up.
A first e-cig - If you are a smoker who has played with the idea of vaping, but aren’t sure it will work for you, a disposable vape is a great intro to vaping.
