Why is it a Good Idea to Buy Disposable Vapes?

Disposable vapes are single-use devices ready to use straight from the box. Generally, these handheld devices are slim and portable, with their shape resembling that of a pen. Every device contains a pre-filled quantity of e-liquid, coil, and battery, which means they can not be refilled or recharged.

So, is it a good idea to buy and use disposable vapes?

In this article we will try to give you an understanding of the benefits, whilst also uncovering some of the downsides and limitations you face with disposable vapes. And to make things easier for those new to vaping, we will outline great starting alternatives for those new to vaping.

Some benefits to disposable vapes:

  1. Reduced maintenance needs

One of the easiest ways to start vaping is using a disposable vape. These devices do not require e-liquid refilling and battery recharging, making it a great option for those new to vaping and want to try a hassle-free alternative.

  1. Better portability

Disposable vapes are smaller and lighter in weight compared to vape mods, making them easy to carry around, unlike the bulkier vape kits available on the market.

Some disadvantages to disposable vapes:

  • Expensive

Despite what many may believe, disposable vapes can rack up in costs due to its single use nature. Unlike a pod vape kit, disposables only contain a finite amount of battery and e-liquid which means once you are finished you must buy a whole new vape.

  • Limited number of flavors

Disposable vapes only come in a certain variety of flavors which can hinder your vaping experience, particularly for those who are new to vaping. In addition, a number of disposable vapes can contain a lot of cooling that can be off putting for many vapors.

Bottom line

Whilst disposable vapes are considered a great choice, at The Vape Joint we highly recommend purchasing pod vape kit. For approximately the same price as a disposable vape, you will not only save in on going costs but also provide yourself with the flexibility to customise the vaping experience to suit your needs. Some key benefits that pod kits have to offer include:

  • Vape whichever e-liquid flavor your heart desires
  • Change the coil resistance to suit your vaping preference (Mouth to lung vs Direct to lung)
  • Larger battery capacity and added benefit to recharge on the go
  • Drastically lower on-going costs
