Disposable Vapes

Disposable vapes are a great way to switch from smoking. Each one is roughly the same as 20 cigarettes and offer a healthier, better value option than cigarettes. Each one is usually pre filled with nic salt e liquid in 10mg, 16mg and 20mg nicotine strengths.

Disposable vape kits will give you a smooth experience with tasty flavours. Even better? They can be set up in moments, with no mess or fuss. All you do is take one out the pack and you are ready to go. They are great for a night out, holiday or weekend breaks.

Here you can find some of the best disposable vapes from the biggest brands, like Geek Bar, Elf Bar and SMOK NOVO Bar.

About Disposable Vapes

Disposable vapes are a single use e cig. This means that when the battery dies or the liquid is used up, you can dispose* of it and get a new one.

Disposable vapes come fully charged and pre filled ready to use right away. There is no need to change the coil, refill the e-liquid or charge the battery. They are also compact and portable so are ideal for using on nights out or weekends away when space is limited.

Disposable vapes generally contain the equivalent amount of e-liquid as a pack of 20 cigarettes. Almost all disposable vapes and e-cigs have nic salt e-liquid in high strengths, and the battery is usually between 280mAh and 700mAh.

Our rundown of The Best Disposable Vape Pens And Why You Should Buy can help you decide if you want to try disposables.

How Do Disposable Vapes Work?

Using a disposable vape really is as simple as taking it out of the box. There is no set up required or any ongoing maintenance; all you need to do is remove the rubber caps from the top or bottom of the device and inhale for vapour.

That’s it! No need to refill, recharge, change the coil or press a button. When your disposable vape is finished, you simply open a new one.

Where To Dispose Of Disposable Vapes?

Disposable vapes can go in your household waste bin. You can also remove the separate components and recycle them, for example, the metal coil. To make it even easier to recycle your device. Our head office shop in Accrington offers an environmentally friendly recycle service. You can return your used disposable vape pens free of charge and they will be recycled responsibly. Our sister company Totally Wicked also offers the same service in its stores nationwide.

How Long Does A Disposable Vape Last?

A disposable vape lasts as long as the e-liquid and battery inside. It also depends on how often you vape.

Each kit will have roughly 1.2ml or 2ml of liquid inside. The battery can be anywhere from 280mAh all the way up to 700mAh. When you need to replace it, the e liquid will dry up or the battery will die and stop working. If you like taking long puffs often, then it will not last as long as a shorter inhale taken less often.

Most disposable vapes will have the puff count on the box. The Elf Bar can last up to 600 puffs for example. If you are a heavy vaper then this can be less, but some may get more depending on usage.

Types Of Disposable Vapes?

There are several high quality disposable vapes available. Each one will vary in the battery life, range of flavours and number of maximum puffs. Here’s a rundown of some of the best-selling disposable vapes.

Elf Bar

Elf Bar has been a massive hit since it launched. It has 2ml of 20mg nic salt e liquid and up to 600 puffs in each one. There are 22 powerful flavours to choose from to suit pretty much any vaper.

Colourful, sturdy casing make the Geek Bar disposable perfect for a night, or day out.


The SMOK VVOW is a great option for anyone that wants a hassle free vape. It has 8 tasty flavours and can last for 500 puffs. It has become popular with vapers thanks to its sleek look and easy to use design.

The Nasty Airfix includes a unique twist airflow on the bottom, which allows you to choose how much air comes through when vaping.

Why Buy A Disposable Vape?

There are a few reasons why you may want to buy a disposable vape:

Low Maintenance - Disposables require no upkeep, changing of coils or battery recharging and so are easily manageable.

No Commitment - If you are new to vaping and want to try it out before moving onto a proper starter kit, disposable vapes mean you can give vaping a go hassle free.

Nights out – Disposable vapes can be far more convenient than your regular e-cig. They fit in pockets or bags easily, give enough nicotine for one night and it won’t matter if you happen to lose it.

Days out or holidays – Although you’re likely taking your main e cig with you, taking a disposable is also a good idea. If you don’t have your vape supply handy and the battery dies, your coil needs a change or you run out of e liquid, a disposable makes a great back up.

When To Switch From Disposable To Refillable Vapes

Disposable vapes are intended as an easy way to move on from smoking. In the long term though, you may want to switch to a refillable.

Reusable vape kits let you fill up a pod or tank with an e liquid of your choice, and don’t need to be thrown away. The battery can be charged, and the coils inside most tanks and pods can be changed, which will cost less than regularly buying new disposables.

Refillable vapes come in all shapes, sizes and flavours. Once you are comfortable with vaping, switching from a disposable vape to a refillable vape will give you more options and is also more cost effective.
