Once your disposable is done, you have to throw the whole thing away, battery and all. Disposable vapes are classed as hazardous electrical waste that pollutes the environment, so you’ll be making a lot of trips to your local waste centre, or they’ll pile up at home (cigarette lighters anyone?).
You never really know how much e-liquid you have left with the closed pod design of a disposable and so may end up having to carry a few around with you just in case - so not very pocket-friendly in reality.
Outside of the convenience of disposables, their biggest draw is the flavour. The concentrated and punchy flavours gave disposables a distinct lead over everyone else, but this is a thing of the past as top e-liquid manufacturers everywhere have wised up and released ranges of disposable-inspired flavours in 10ml bottles of premium nic salt blends.
Reusable or open pod vapes, on the other hand, are far cheaper, and open you up to an extraordinary amount of flavour options - so you’ll never run out of flavours to try. Intuitive customisation features give you control over your draw and how much vapour you produce, and you will have access to lower 10mg and 5mg nic salt strengths which are more suitable for light or social smokers. Most importantly you won’t be throwing a lithium battery away every time it runs out.
Open pod kits are designed to be sleek, stylish and super portable and in the long run, you will be spending a lot less on juice top-ups and coils than you would if you stayed on the disposable route.
What vape is similar to disposable?
MTL (mouth-to-lung) refillable pod kits are designed to emulate the sensation of smoking a cigarette. They feature an open pod system that allows you to refill a 2ml pod with your favourite nic salt e-liquid and a replaceable coil or pod system that comes in various resistances, offering you the ability to customise the amount of vapour you produce.
These compact kits come with a rechargeable battery that is often considerably more powerful than one you’d find in a disposable vape and modern Type-C charging means that you can get back up and running quickly.
Operating an open pod device is very straightforward with most devices nowadays featuring the auto-draw function that you are used to and some even have additional button firing if you would like more control.
Are reusable vapes cheaper than disposables?
Yes, after the initial outlay of buying the device, it works out much cheaper to maintain a refillable pod kit as you will only need to purchase e-liquid every couple of weeks and coils every month or so. And with the multi-buy deals at Vape Superstore, you can save even more money.
What vapes taste like disposables?
As we mentioned earlier, e-liquid manufacturers have upped their game and you can now find a wide range of flavours for refillable pod kits, that are inspired by all the best-selling disposable vapes. They are super sweet and flavourful and offer a much wider selection of flavours, with combinations like Sour Raspberry Pomegranate and Lemon Peach Passionfruit.
Even the best-selling disposable brand Elf Bar has released its range of popular flavours in 10ml bottles.
With our 3 for £10 mix & match deals you can get 9000 puffs (approx.) worth of e-liquid.
There has never been a better time to do your bit for the environment and save money by switching to a reusable open pod system.
