Disposable vapes have exploded in popularity with consumers and brands in the last few years. And it’s not hard to see why with their simple design, ease of use and cheap production. Disposable vapes have also been touted as a great method for introducing newcomers to vaping due to their ease of use. They require little to no prior knowledge of vaping and are predominantly draw-activated, much like a normal cigarette. But for all their positives, there can also be negatives associated with disposable vapes.
Although they may start off cheap, in a short amount of time they quickly become more expensive in the long run for consumers. Not to mention the environmental impact caused by these un-recyclable devices that are tossed away sometimes only hours after use.
How disposable and rechargeable E-Cigarettes compare?
Although there is still some environmental impact from pod devices, as they need to be responsibly recycled also, with proper care they can last far longer than their disposable cousins. In general, disposable devices offer anywhere from 300-500 puffs on average per device which can last the casual vaper a couple of days - even less for those who vape more. In comparison, a pod device can last 6-7 months before its components need replacing.
Pod devices offer refillable pods or pre-filled pods, each with built-in coils. So rather than having to replace the device, users can simply top up their pod or pop in a fresh one. Users don’t even need to know how to replace a coil as the pods come pre-built with coils ready to use. Refillable pods are certainly more environmentally friendly but will need replacing after a few top-ups due to the coils getting clogged up with E-Liquid over time, but this is still less waste than with disposable devices. Pod devices also mean that once the battery runs out, vapers no longer need to worry about buying a new device as they can simply recharge and go.
With the push for more environmentally friendly options, we believe that pod kits will truly be the next best thing for both new and seasoned vapers.
The future is pod devices?
Not only do new vapers benefit from pod kits, but many existing vapers look to pod kits as a cheap and easy alternative for vaping on the go, rather than taking expensive mod kits out and about. Being friendlier to the wallet and the environment, pod kits should be the next big push in the vaping market by conscience brands.
With growing technology and understanding of vaping growing with the general population, it’s only natural that the market starts leaning more towards these middle-ground devices. And with pod devices working exceptionally well with nicotine salts, the revolutionary way of delivering nicotine in E-Liquids now’s the time to become the market leader and get ahead of the trends.
