The Best Disposable Vapes of 2022
The vaping industry continues to grow as more people decide to quit smoking for good.
In 2020 alone, we saw more than one million people give up cigarettes, with many turning to e-cigarettes as the solution to replace nicotine.
One of the easiest ways you could do this is by using a disposable e-cigarette to quit smoking for good.
While vapers seeking greater creativity and flexibility like to get involved with different vape mod settings and customise their e-liquids, for high nicotine intake and minimum fuss you can’t go wrong with a kit that you can just throw away when you’re done, either replacing the pods in your vape pen or disposing of the whole e-cigarette to replace with a brand new one. Let’s explore the best options at your disposal in the UK that 2022 has to offer, with some classic devices mirroring a cigarette in shape and some innovative choices that are packed with flavour.
Top 6 Disposable Vapes for 2022
So now that you know what a disposable vape is and how it functions, let’s check out the range of options at your disposal as a vaper, whether you’re a beginner or looking for a simplistic backup option that delivers high nicotine.
First, we have a simple range of disposable e-cig vape pens. The Elf Bars will appeal to new vapers especially, who are seeking something that’s easy to use and offers a vibrant taste in comparison to the repetitiveness of cigarettes.
Examples including Blue Razz Lemonade, Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava and Cotton Candy Ice will satisfy any sweet tooth. Smokers can attest to that, with roughly half a teaspoon of sugar per cigarette! The Elf Bars provide 2% nicotine salt e-liquid, which can produce a generous amount of cloud production from 2ml of e-liquid, measuring at around 600 puffs per disposable.
Next up it’s the super popular Geek Bars from GeekVape.
These are fantastic disposable vapes for multiple reasons.
With up to 575 puffs per bar and a choice of delicious flavours ranging from Banana Ice to Sour Apple, you can certainly enjoy the fruits of your labour with this one!
Most importantly, they provide a powerful yet smooth 20mg of nic salt per bar at 500mAh of battery. Therefore, heavy smokers will get more than enough nicotine daily and throw the disposable device away when you’re done. It’s simple and seamless vaping on the go, with traditional flavours such as Tobacco and Menthol for the less experimental among you.
The transition from cigarette smoker to completely quitting is a tough one but vaping is the next best thing to get you there.
As a tool it can be useful to help the switch and a simple easy to use disposable from Elf Bar called the T600 might just do the trick!
Because of the unique filter tip they’ve added to the end - that little stroke of genius creates a unique experience that’s the closest you’ll get to that cigarette to mouth feeling, without needing to smoke combustible tobacco!
Available in a wide variety of flavours, you have much more choice than smoking cigarettes at an affordable price. Beautifully packaged too, they’re a colourful alternative featuring up to 600 puffs, a decent 500mAh battery for MTL vaping throughout the day and 20mg nic salts, which are super handy for heavy smokers needing a stronger concentration of nicotine that feels just as smooth.
You guessed it - another disposable with 600 in the name is a good hint about the amount of puffs in this compact vape kit option, which you don't need to refill or even change the coil. At a 50/50 split of VG and PG, you get just enough cloud production from the Pod Salt Go yet still a restrictive draw that creates a satisfying MTL experience.
The Pod Salt brand continues to provide a simplistic disposable option from their latest range, which vapers can appreciate if they want something discreet and hassle-free. The flavours are fantastic with a strong profile and plenty of selection, so you never get bored of the same tasting e-liquids. Our personal favourites at Pure E-Liquids are mango ice, mixed berries and fresh mint!
Chinese powerhouse Smok have taken a brief step away from the countless innovative pod kits and beastly vape mods they produce to have a crack at disposables - and they did not disappoint! The compact Mbars are a delightful choice if you’re thinking of switching to vaping from smoking or fancy a vape with the easiest setup imaginable. Straight out of the pack, you can use this slim nic salt device, which already contains a coil and 1.3ml of e-liquid. E-liquid flavours include refreshing strawberry and bold grape juice. The 280mAh isn’t the biggest battery but a handy option as a backup if your regular kit runs out!
Last on the list we have gone for a vanity vape choice. Although disposables are often used only for one day, it’s still important to look the part while you vape. Geek Bar has produced a large collection of seriously stylish disposable kits called the S600 model. Made with a crystalised plastic, Geek Bar always produce the goods with bold disposables, full of colour and packed with flavour! Like the majority of disposables, these S600s are auto-draw and offer 600 puffs to vapers on the go. Flavours include cherry salt if you want a mixture of savoury and sweet, or kiwi geekbull which packs a satisfying amount of flavour into one little kit.
What are Disposable Vape Kits?
Answering the call of vapers who want a kit that’s super simple to pick up and begin vaping, disposable vape kits help anybody struggling with their tobacco and nicotine addiction. Because cigarettes are easy to use, sometimes vaping can seem daunting or not like-for-like due to all the different terms such as ‘Sub-Ohm’, or the variety of coil and e-liquid options. However, with disposable e-cigs, you have two main options:
- Disposable all-in-one devices including the battery, mouthpiece, coil and e-liquid. Once you have squeezed every last puff out, throw it carefully in the bin and pick up a fresh new one ready to vape.
- Go for something a little more advanced but predominantly the same. You keep all of the devices but remove the pod from the vape, disposing of that to make way for a new pod.
It’s that simple! You’ll find with most disposable vape kits that they’re designed to facilitate nic salt e-liquid. These are pods that have a higher strength of nicotine, with a smoother intake but also a higher concentration for easier absorption.
Why Choose a Disposable Device?
As well as the useful nic salt compatibility, they’re becoming increasingly popular with vapers of all levels.
This is because disposable e-cigarettes remove all technicalities and complications. With an automatic draw, you puff on it like you would a cigarette.
Slim and sleek, they provide more style than cigarettes too at a fraction of the price.
With heavy smokers in the UK tending to inhale more than one pack a day, that’s roughly 140 grams of tar that go into your lungs annually, costing a whopping £3650 each year that you smoke.
With disposable vapes, not only do you save money but they are suitable in all situations. For example, you might be in the middle of a busy day at work and only have a ten-minute break to get your nicotine hit. With a nic salt disposable e-cig, you can vape quickly without needing to top up e-liquid or change coils. Alternatively, they’re handy for social situations such as a night out with a friend or just to try the different flavours on offer, whether you choose to dispose of pods individually or the whole vape pen.
How Many Puffs Can You Get?
It depends on the device but most disposable vape pens can provide anywhere between 300 puffs and 600 puffs. You’ll want to find one that offers consistency, easy use and maximum flavour while delivering a steady nicotine concentration. As a comparison, a cigarette lasts between 10 and 12 puffs per stick on the inhale and exhale. When you factor in how many puffs are available per e-cigarette, the difference is remarkable and your lungs will thank you for it too!
Advice for Using and Throwing Away Disposables
- Be careful when vaping that you’re not putting your fingers over the airflow holes. These are typically very small on the disposable vape pens and easy to miss. Usually on the side of the device, vape with care - making sure not to cover them to avoid any leaks or damage to the disposable
- Do not attempt to refill where the disposable e-liquid is stored. This could put you at risk by causing an auto-fire. Avoid any danger and simply throw it away when it’s empty - better to be safe than sorry!
- Avoid a burnt taste when you vape by disposing of the device at the right time. It’s tempting to keep going even with enough battery, but you’ll regret it when the e-liquid flavour gradually drops
- Always take a draw from the mouthpiece only - it sounds like simple advice but you’d be surprised how many try to draw from the bottom of the vape pen. Doing so can also cause auto-fire
- Only throw them away in a battery recycling bin or recycling centre where appropriate to dispose of safely
- Finally and very important - keep only in moderate temperatures. Exposing disposables to high temperatures can seriously damage the batteries and put you or others at risk
