What is a Disposable Vape?
Disposable Vapes, also referred to as e-cigarette devices, are pre-filled and pre-charged vapor delivery systems. These single-use electronic vaporizers are pre-infused with e-juice and ready to use immediately after purchase. Disposable vaping products are innovative, efficient and super easy to use — Open the package, inhale from the draw-activated mouthpiece, discard when the e-juice or battery runs out, dispose of it, and open a new one.
Disposable Electronic Cigarette Products
All single-use vaping devices have one thing in common - They are disposable, meaning that the products are ready-to-puff without charging and discarded when the e-juice runs out. That said, there are some key differences and options to consider:
A few years ago, only 300-puff devices were available. More recently, manufacturers are producing vaping products with 2000 hits, 3500 hits and even 4500 PUFFS!
What is Salt Nicotine?
Salt nicotine or "Nic Salts" is a form of nicotine derived from tobacco leaves. Benzoic acid is added to create lower levels of alkalinity, which in turn, allows vape-users to enjoy higher concentrations of nicotine without unbearable harshness in the throat.
Puff Bar is the most searched for disposable vape brand on the internet. In 2020, the official company ceased U.S. sales after receiving multiple warnings from government and anti-vaping organizations. Puff Inc. and many other vaporizer brands have received cautionary letters from the FDA recently. HQD and others submitted a premarket tobacco application in an attempt to gain official approval to promote their products. Considering all of the scrutiny, the future of pre-infused vapes is believed to be extremely uncertain. Vape Shops are constantly in fear of having to shut down.
Some of the most popular disposable vaping options include Fume disposables, Loy Vapor, HQD Tech, Puff Bar, STIG Pod Devices, and POP Vapes.
Pods Versus Disposable E-Cigarettes
It’s easy to confuse pods and vapes. Here are some of the key differences:
Replaceable pod brands, including Juul, require three components to generate vapor: Rechargeable device, pre-filled pods that are inserted into that device, and a micro USB that charges it.
On the other hand, disposable nicotine delivery products are easier to activate. The electronic cigarette all-in-one system doesn’t require charging or pod replacements. It’s ready to use instantly after opening the pack.
Potential Smoking Alternative
E-vaping hardware was originally designed to mirror and replace the process of smoking tobacco. That said, one-use vape pens are even easier to use than cigs. The vapor is activated by simply pulling from the tip, which means they do not require a lighter or even a button to be pushed. The vaping sticks can be used inside without leaving any kind of smell. Still, many public areas have banned indoor vaping.
Standard solo-use e-cig kits, including the Cuvie V1 and Buzz Barz, typically generate 300 puffs of 5% strength salt nicotine, which equals about one pack of cigarettes. Recently, larger vapes have hit the market. Many of these plus-size vaping pens are equivalent to 5 packs of cigs or more! Some examples of long-lasting e-cigarettes include the Fume Extra and Loy XL.
