Vaporisers are considered sophisticated devices that require proper care and maintenance. Some vapes require parts like the coil replaced and the O-rings. For new vapers, this sounds too much, especially considering you might not know anything about vapes.
This is where disposable vapes come in. Disposables offer the same fantastic vaping experience without the demands of other vaping devices like maintenance, cleaning, refilling, and replacing parts. They allow you to take your time and enjoy vaping as you get to know more about vaporisers.
Disposable vape pens are vape devices designed for short-term or one-time use. The device can't be recharged or refilled and should be disposed of once the juice, the charge or both are depleted. Initially, disposable vapes came in limited flavour options. But that has since changed. You can now find disposable vapes in almost every flavour you can think of.
Some disposable vapes have advanced enough to have airflow control for a better and more satisfying vaping experience.
Disposable vapes have the same main parts as other vaporisers and even work using the same principle. The only difference is, they take the technical aspects like cleaning, maintenance and settings out of the equation. They are easy to use, even for new vapers.
How Disposable Vapes Work
Disposable vapes work more or less the same way as other vapes. However, they have no buttons. Therefore, they are draw-activated.
When you draw from the device, there is an airflow sensor that detects the change and fires up the device. Current from the battery flows through the coil, which heats up and turns the e-liquid into the vapour that you inhale. It is a simple but effective principle.
How to Use a Disposable Vape
Receiving your first disposable vape is exciting. But for first-time users, it also comes with some anxiety because you don't know what to expect or how to use the device. Fortunately, disposable vapes make this really easy for you.
Start by removing the device from the packaging. Usually, there is a user's manual that you can read and will give you all the information you need on how to use the pen and take care of it.
Check the pen for any damage caused by handling and shipping or visible defects. You can also check if it has airflow control.
Once you’re somewhat familiar with the device, place your lips around the mouthpiece and inhale slowly and steadily. The device will power on and start producing vapour. Just like that, you will have started vaping.
How many Hits Do You Get from a Disposable Vape?
The amount of hits you can get from a disposable vape depends on two things; the amount of e-liquid the vape carries and how you use the device.
Disposable vape pens carry varying quantities of vape liquid depending on the brand and model of the device. The more the vape liquid, the more the hits you can get. Vape liquids carrying the least amount of vape liquid can produce about 150 hits, while those carrying the largest amount last about 500 hits.
How Long Do Disposable Vapes Last?
Disposable vapes are not designed to last very long. However, they are sturdy and strong enough to last for the intended period until the vape liquid or the battery runs out.
Parts of a Disposable Vape
Most disposable vapes are composed of the following components:
Mouthpiece:At the top of the device is the mouthpiece where you place your lips and inhale the vapour.
Atomiser:Right under the mouthpiece is the atomiser. The atomiser is a combination of the coil and the tank that holds the e-liquid.
E-liquid:Every disposable vape comes with e-liquid. Depending on the brand and model, some come with more e-liquid than others. Every brand has its selection of flavours. It's important that you ensure you pick your preferred flavour when making the purchase.
Coil:The coil is inside the atomiser. It is not something you can see. It’s made from a thin wire which heats up when current runs along the wire. The coil heats the e-liquid inside the atomiser and turns it into vapour.
Integrated battery:Disposable vapes come with a built-in and pre-charged battery that powers the device.
LED Indicator:LED indicators are not a standard in all disposable vapes. Some have it, but others don't. The LED indicator notifies you when the device is on, and in some devices, it also acts as an alert that your battery is low and you should consider replacing the device.
Airflow control:Because airflow affects the vape quality, many disposable vape brands are adding airflow control to their devices to make them more appealing to a larger crowd of vapers.
Benefits of a Disposable Vape
Disposable vapes are often preferred because of their no-frills and straightforward approach. They are perfect for both new and seasoned vapers and provide a multitude of benefits which include:
Convenience –You don’t need any tools, refills or recharge to use a disposable vape pen. That makes them a convenient device to use anywhere and at any time. They take the hassle of owning a vaporiser out of vaping and allow you to enjoy the experience.
Portable –Disposable vapes have a compact design. Most are slightly bigger than the average pen. They are easy to carry around and will easily fit in your pocket or purse without taking too much space. You can easily take the pen anywhere and vape even when you don’t have a power outlet because they are not rechargeable.
Fast and effective –You can take your new disposable vape pen out of its package and vape immediately. With other devices, you have to assemble the device, fill it with e-liquid, give it time to wick, adjust the settings and then vape. Disposable vapes are perfect for vapers that want something that doesn't consume time or require regular maintenance or cleaning, which can run into hours in the long run.
Ideal for ex-smokers –Disposable vapes are turning out to be an excellent choice for smokers looking for an alternative. They give you complete control of your nicotine intake, and they look and feel like ordinary cigarettes, making them an ideal option for smokers looking to quit smoking.
