Disposable vapes are small, lightweight, and very easy to use. Each one arrives prefilled with up to 2ml of e-liquid and with a pre-charged battery. You won't have to deal with any setup like with traditional vape kits, instead, take your device out of the wrapper, remove any rubber inserts from the mouthpiece and airflow, and you're ready to start vaping.
Every disposable can be disposed of when the e-liquid inside runs out – hence the name – and when you're done with one, you can pick up another and get straight back to vaping without any hassle.
This simple approach has made them incredibly popular, while their low one-off cost means that smokers who are curious about vaping can try it without having to invest a lot of money in a kit and e-liquid. They're not just for new switchers, a lot of vapers carry them as a backup for their everyday kit or use these e-cigarettes when they're out and about.
A lot of people are curious about what's actually inside a disposable, as unlike other kits you can't see the coil and e-liquid. Inside your device's plastic body are the same key components you'd find in any other type of vape kit.
There's a battery that heats up your coil, this coil then vapourises the e-liquid inside turning it into vapour, and the vapour travels up through the device until it reaches the mouthpiece where it can be inhaled. That's all there is to it, just the same combination of battery, coil, and e-liquid found in every kind of vape kit that offers a less harmful alternative to cigarettes.
Just like every other kind of vape, disposables are intended for adult smokers looking to quit or cut down. Vapes have been proven to be a less harmful alternative to smoking, as early as 2015, in a groundbreaking study carried out by Public Health England.
Disposable e-cigarettes keep nicotine cravings satisfied without you having to resort to tobacco products. As there's no tobacco and no combustion involved with a vape, there's none of the tar, carcinogens, or harmful preservatives that exist in cigarettes which are linked to cancer, lung disease, and heart problems.
Whilst substantially less harmful than cigarettes, anyone who doesn't smoke, or isn't trying to stop smoking, has no business using a vape. The same goes for anyone under the age of eighteen and we carry out rigorous age verification checks to ensure our products don't end up in the wrong hands.
Increasingly, the first kind of vape that smokers try is a single-use vape. It's easy to understand why; their low cost (£4-6 each) makes them much cheaper compared to cigarettes and they'll last as long as a 20-pack would.
Beginners looking for a vape with no technical complications are in luck too; disposables don't need setting up and require no maintenance. This means you can focus on vaping without having to worry about changing coils or working out which e-liquid goes with your kit. In fact, if you're looking for the simplest experience possible – nothing comes close
All this convenience does come at a price, and you'll need to take this into consideration. They aren't reusable and constantly replacing your device can get expensive quickly. Some vapers also find the limited selection of flavours and nic strengths quite constricting, especially when compared to the huge range present in e-liquids for refillable vapes.
Weighing things up, although disposables are the simplest and most convenient option (two very important points for new vapers), other kinds of kit – particularly refillable vapes – are cheaper to run and offer more choice in terms of flavour and nicotine strength.
Almost every disposable contains 2ml of e-liquid and should last as long as approximately 20 cigarettes.
So, you can work out how many vape bars you'll need based on how much you smoke or used to smoke. For example, a 20-a-day smoker can expect to get through around one a day. The other way to work out how long your vape lasts is to look at the puff count…
You'll often see the number of puffs a single-use vape can deliver stated in our product descriptions and on its packaging. This is what's known as a puff count; for example 600 puffs. It's not an exact measurement as everyone inhales for a slightly different length of time, but, it works as a good indication as to how long your vape will last.
Depending on how much you vape, you might get through one device a day, and this could mean spending £6 daily just to keep vaping. With this in mind, make sure you take advantage of our disposable multi-buys and clearance vapes if you're looking to stock up for the week. At the end of the day, if you're looking for a simple way to switch to vaping disposables are ideal, but, they're not the most cost-effective option.
The golden rule is the more work you're willing to do, and the less of your vape kit you have to replace, the cheaper it is to run. For example, prefilled pod kits feature a rechargeable battery and disposable pods. As you're only expected to replace the small plastic pods rather than the entire kit, they're significantly cheaper than vape bars. They're also almost as simple too.

Picking the right nic strength is an important part of vaping, and while picking the wrong one isn't at all dangerous, getting it right makes switching and sticking to vaping a lot easier. Disposables are generally available in three strengths: 0mg, 10mg and 20mg. Below we've given a quick rundown of what strength we recommend, but there's no one-size fits all approach. Most vapers, when they get started, will buy both a 10mg and 20mg vape to find out what they like more.
20mg disposable vapes are the most popular option we stock. In fact, some ranges only offer a 20mg strength. They're ideal for anyone who smokes more than 10 a day or who smoked strong cigarettes.
10mg disposable vapes are highly recommended for anyone who would consider themselves a light smoker (less than 10 cigarettes a day) or who smokes/smoked lower strength cigarettes.
0mg or nicotine-free vapes are perfect if you've completely switched from cigarettes and want to cut out nicotine. A lot of people move from a 20mg device down to a 10mg, then settle on a 0mg vape before they quit completely. But, new switchers tend to struggle with this kind of device, as there's nothing to keep their cravings satisfied and they might start reaching for the cigarettes.
Picking the right flavour is always important and that's why we stock so many different varieties! Our catch-all rule is that the best disposable vape flavour is the one that stops you from smoking, so it's really up to you!
If you're just starting out, fruit blends like blueberry bars and strawberry disposables are some of our most popular. If you're looking for something that tastes more like a cigarette, tobacco vapes and menthol devices might be more to your liking.
A very good question! Picking the best vape for you will come down to a few factors: flavour, nic strength and puff count. If you're looking for a bit of inspiration, you should check out our Best Disposable Vapes guide. We've reviewed the best vapes from the biggest names, alongside the latest e-cigarettes from the newest brands, and there really is a bit of something for everyone.
Pocket-friendly and lightweight, disposables are the ideal option for the vaper on the go. There are just a few things to consider, firstly, whether it's a bus, train or plane, chances are you're not going to be allowed to vape when travelling on it. So, bear that in mind.
Secondly, if you are travelling by plane, the lithium-ion battery inside your vape means it should be kept on your person or in your hand luggage – not in your checked/hold luggage. The same goes for any other vape. If you have any questions, ask the airline or someone at the check-in desk.
Thirdly, if you're planning on travelling to another country, do your research and find out whether or not it's legal to bring a vape into the country or buy one when you're over there. Even in these enlightened times, certain countries are still "anti-vape". You can find out more in our Vaping Abroad guide.
You might be wondering whether or not your vape can be recycled, unfortunately, the answer isn't as clear-cut as you hoped. We always recommend you put an e-cigarette in a recycling bin – specifically battery or electrical waste bins – but actually recycling them has proven to be tricky. Don't fret, new developments are happening all the time and manufacturers like SLIX are creating devices that really easy to recycle. Keep an eye on this section as we'll be updating it with the latest news when it arrives.
A lot of vapers consider single-use devices as an introduction or a stepping stone. After a few weeks or months, you might be wondering if there are other options out there, namely, vapes that don't cost as much or generate a lot of waste – you're in luck! We've created a whole guide on how to move away from disposable vapes to help you get started. In the meantime, our advice is to keep things simple, if you pick a vape that's too technical then you're not going to use it, and you might find yourself reaching for disposables again.
Vapes that feel like disposables are easy to find, and pod kits are amongst the most popular. With options like the Elfa pod kit starting at £4.99 and the Crystal Bar Plus and Elf Bar Mate 500 kit costing a few pounds more, prefilled pod vapes are ideal for vaping on a budget. All you'll need to replace are the small e-liquid pods and the devices are rechargeable and reusable. You can also go for a refillable pod kit which can be paired with a huge range of e-liquid and are very cheap to run.
Disposable vapes are not designed to be refilled, this is one of the reasons why they are so simple. For a lot of vapers, the idea of having to refill a vape can be off-putting, a single-use bar removes all the hassle and allows you to focus on vaping instead. If you are looking for a compact option that you can fill with e-liquid yourself we stock a wide range of kits including our ever-popular vape pens and kits compatible with refillable pods.
