Your Complete Guide To Disposable Devices

Compact, travel-friendly and inexpensive, disposable vape devices are one of the latest inventions in the industry, and they’re proving to be a massive hit!

Pre-filled with delicious e-liquid flavours and fitted with built-in batteries, these inhale-activated devices do not need to be refilled or recharged, and come with a set puff count.

As such, disposable vaping devices are an affordable and suitable choice for both complete beginners as well as vaping veterans in need of a more discreet on-the-go device. Before you go ahead and try one, here’s everything you need to know about disposable vapes.

What are disposable vapes?

All disposable devices house a built-in battery and a heating element alongside a pre-filled 2ml nicotine salt in varying strengths and flavours. Your device will also have a set “puff count”, which will indicate how long your device will last. Disposable devices last for around 600 puffs. Once you’ve used up all of these puffs, simply dispose, replace, and repeat!

Can you refill or recharge disposable vapes?

Single-use vape devices cannot be refilled or recharged. Each disposable device battery is designed to last for the duration of the 2ml e-liquid within the device chamber. Batteries are intentionally built to run out before your e-liquid so as to protect the performance of your device and make for a more enjoyable experience.

How do disposable vapes work?

Disposable vape devices operate through inhale activation via a mouthpiece.

This means you need only take a draw from the device to surround your taste buds with the flavours you crave! There are no buttons or busy screens to navigate through either, so you can get to vaping in no time. Simply inhale from the top and your device’s built-in battery will instantly heat up the in-built coil and vaporise the flavour inside!

Vaping with a disposable device provides a Mouth-to-Lung draw which is similar to smoking. Put simply, an MTL inhale style will enable you to draw vapour into your mouth and inhale it into your lungs.

What type of e-liquids and strengths are included in disposable vapes?

You’ll usually find 2ml 10mg or 20mg nicotine salts in disposable vape devices.

Nic salts are the best type of e-liquids for complete beginners due to their smoother throat hits and speedy nicotine delivery compared to freebase juices. This means you’ll get the ultimate satisfaction when those cravings start to hit.

How long do disposable vape devices last?

Each disposable bar offers around 600 puffs per device.

Each single-use 20mg 2ml device is equal to approximately 45 cigarettes. So, if you used to smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day, you can expect your disposable device to last for up to two days. The lifespan of disposable vape will also depend on how often you vape and how long you take a draw for.

Are disposable devices safe to use?

At, we only stock premium-level disposable devices that are registered with the MHRA and have passed compliance checks. Non-TPD compliant devices can be found via unlicensed sellers and are not to be trusted. This is due to the untested nature of the devices, which means the e-liquid could contain any number of unknown or unsafe chemicals.

Why buy disposable vapes?

Disposable vape devices are extremely convenient for multiple reasons.

Not only do they taste amazing, but they all come ready made with a built-in battery, coil, and e-liquid, meaning there’s zero maintenance required. All you need to do is pick up your vape and take a draw from the mouthpiece! Due to their tiny size, you can take disposable devices with you pretty much anywhere you go, whether you’re running errands or at a music festival. Disposable vapes are super affordable, too, meaning you’ll never be without your favourite flavour!

Can you recycle disposable vapes?

If disassembled correctly, disposable vapes can be easily recycled with no harm done to the environment.

  • Once all of the juice inside your device has been vaped, the first step you’ll need to take is to detach the plastic or glass pod and rinse away any e-liquid residue. This can then be wrapped in recyclable material and disposed of with other plastic waste.

  • Next, take out your device’s battery and take it to your local battery recycling bin which can be found in most supermarkets.

  • Make sure to recycle the cardboard packaging that your vape comes in, too!
