Everything You Need To Know About Disposable Vapes

Want to buy your first disposable vape but don’t know where to start? We have all the answers to your vaping questions, right here at Vape Direct.

Thinking of starting to vape for the first time but don’t know if you will enjoy it? A disposable vape device is a good stepping-stone to ease you cautiously into the vaping world. These are e-cigarettes which have a limited capacity for use. In the case of popular products like Elf Bar, they might have 600 puffs for one device. This might be enough to last a night for an experienced vape user, but for a new vaper, it could be the taste they need to know whether they like it or not.

This article will explore what you need to know about disposable vaping before you start.

What is a Disposable Vape?

Using a disposable vape is an easy and affordable way to enter the world of vaping. This device is a throw-away version of the larger vape devices you see experienced vapers using. They often come over the counter and in a variety of colourful packages. Disposable e-cigarettes have smaller batteries and less power, usually around 550amH to a traditional device’s 1000+.

Flavours and Nicotine Strengths

Disposable vape devices come in all the flavours and nicotine strengths you might expect from traditional vape devices. They come in fruity flavours, in candy and pudding flavours, and in mints, menthols, tobaccos, and coffees. Tobacco remains the most popular vape device flavour of all time. This is due to the similarities in flavour profile to cigarette smoking. Many new vape users are ex-smokers trying to kick the habit. It’s no wonder, since the government estimates vaping to be up to 95% less harmful to humans than cigarette smoking.

The nicotine strengths for disposable vapes also differ. Most products offer around the 2mg nicotine mark. However, you can get stronger products if you shop around. We offer all strengths of disposable vape kit here at Vape Direct.

How Long Does a Disposable Vape Last?

A disposable vape has a limited number of puffs. This could be anything from 300-600 or beyond, as technology improves. If you are a heavy vape user, this lasts about a day. If you are a light user or a new vape user, this could last a week or more. The device will stop working when it runs out of battery or when you use your puff allowance.

How Do I Use a Disposable Vape?

A disposable vape pen works the same way as a traditional one, it just has less power. It contains 2ml or less of vape juice, since the UK government regulates the size of their tanks. They come in different nicotine strengths to match your tastes and needs. New users should select nicotine-free vape juice or less than 1mg.

The device will start to work from the moment you first inhale it or from the moment you first press the button. Many new models of disposable vape, such as Elux, have done away with the button. To use it, place your lips on the mouthpiece. The installed battery powers a coil which vaporises the e-liquid in the tank. This travels up the mouthpiece for you to inhale. You breathe it in and back out again, creating the clouds of vapour you see on the street.

Do Disposable E-Cigs Make Large Clouds?

They can, although they will never be as large or as dense as the clouds produced by a sub ohm or high powered modern vape device. For the biggest hit from a disposable e-cig, choose the highest power possible in the battery pack. To date, the best known brand for good hits from a disposable vape are Elf Bar. You can read more about their range of fruit flavoured products on our blog. They are the ideal companion to a good night out.

Large clouds of vapour usually occur when the user is vaping their own traditional device. Sub ohm vaping allows a higher transfer rate of vape juice into steam than a disposable device does. This means that the user can breathe the vape juice straight into their lungs and get more of the flavour from it on the out breath. Since the vape juice condenses at less voltage, the steam cloud is larger. This is not for beginner vape users, however.

Are Disposable E-Cigs Safe?

Disposable e-cigs are safety tested before manufacturers can sell them to the public. The most dangerous part of an e-cigarette is the battery, but since you do not change or charge the battery within a disposable vape device, you don’t have that risk. The one risk that does come with disposable vape use lies in where you buy them.

There have been several crackdowns throughout the UK by Trading Standards officials. Some unscrupulous shop owners are stocking black market products which have not been safety tested. These disposable vape devices don’t come with the same quality and security that better know products do. We advise all vape users to stay away from knock-off disposable vapes and only use those products which you are familiar with. These dangers are what makes researching disposable vapes before you buy them so necessary.

Disposable Vapes are a Good Temporary Fix

Disposable vapes are the ideal solution for the new user who doesn’t know what they like yet. They are cheaper than permanent devices and vape kits. We love that you have as many options in nicotine strength as you do in flavour. Look at the Elf Bar range of 20mgs, for example.

Although disposable vapes are a great temporary fix when you leave your main device at home, we still recommend our clients invest in a high powered device of their own. Disposable vapes don’t give you the sub ohm satisfaction that a permanent vape device can give you. Not only that, but they are difficult to recycle. This difficulty means they are bad for the environment since many centres choose to dispose of them in landfill instead.
