There’s a vast amount of different vape devices on the market so it’s understandable that a new vaper would feel overwhelmed with all these choices.

If you want an easy to use and maintenance free vape to kick start your journey to a cigarette free life then disposables are a great option for you.

At Vapeshoppers.co.uk we have a vast selection of different disposables all from premium brands. 

What is a disposable vape? 

A disposable is a vape that when you use up all the liquid within you simply dispose of it. A disposable is unlike any other vape device because it’s so simple to use. Usually a disposable is composed of the battery, the cartomiser on top and liquid all of this is sealed inside the device which means no charging port therefore you don’t need to charge the device and no need to refill liquid. 

How to use a disposable 

Disposables are so easy to use, there’s no buttons or need to even "turn on” the device, all you do is take it to your lips and inhale like you’re smoking a cigarette and that’s it. 

Pro’s of disposables 

There are lots of pros to using a disposable over a vape pen or even a bigger mod. 

Firstly, the sheer convenience of disposables is a big pro over other vape kits. Disposables don’t need to be charged or refilled, making them much easier to use and perfect for people new to vaping. 

Secondly, disposables are quite small and discrete in their size and appearance. They are extremely pocketable and are nowhere near as bulky as other more traditional vapers.


Disposables don’t come with all the bells and whistles of other devices (i.e. variable wattage, a colour screen etc)  and so they’re much more affordable. You get what you pay for with disposables, there are no extra bits and pieces needed and no maintenance required; when a disposable is done you just buy a new one. Disposables usually cost anywhere between £5 and £8 depending on the number of puffs (life expectancy), brand and seller. 


As stated above disposables are beyond easy to use. You don’t have to mess about with air flow or variable wattage also there’s no button to press to activate, all you need to do is inhale and you’ll be vaping away happily on your disposable. 

Longevity of a disposable 

A standard amount of puffs for a disposable is around 600 puffs which is equal to approximately 2ml of liquid. This makes disposable kits great for people with active and social lifestyles who are prone to losing or forgetting their vape. Instead of taking a traditional vape which normally costs a substantial amount more, the user can take and use a disposable vape which if they lose they can easily replace and for much cheaper. 

What flavours are available for disposables 

Disposables much like e-liquids come in a wide variety of flavours. The most common flavours include menthols and fruity combinations, however this does not limit you to just these flavours. For example, one of the world’s leading disposables manufacturers Geek Bar have approximately 25 different flavours including a Tobacco, a Strawberry Ice Cream and a Grape flavour.

Are disposables safe? 

Vaping in general and disposable vapes are widely considered as being much safer for the user than smoking cigarettes. Vaping does not produce tar or carbon monoxide which are two of the most harmful by-products of smoking cigarettes. The NHS have actually stated vaping to be 95% healthier than smoking traditional cigarettes. Due to the nature of the e-cigarette industry it is extremely well regulated to ensure that all vaping products are safe for customers to use and are of good quality. 

Who can use disposables? 

Disposables are perfect for those who want to quit smoking and make the switch to vaping. Disposables are a great place to start because of how easy they are to use. They are commonly used by people who are struggling to make the complete switch to vaping and are both vaping and smoking. Due to disposables being reliable, easy to use and high quality they are being used more and more to help people pack in the cigarettes. Also, disposables are perfect for those vapers who live busy lifestyles. They are extremely easy to use with a wide range of flavour options and don’t require any extras and so the user can simply bin it when the device runs out of puffs/ battery.
