What are Disposable Vapes?
Disposable vapes are just like any other vape device. They contain vape juice (e-liquid) that has nicotine within it. The device will have a battery that powers a heating element (coil) to heat the vape juice and create vapor, which the user inhales.
The difference between disposable vape pens and other vaping devices is pretty straightforward – they are not re-usable and are just for one-time use. Disposables don’t require refilling or recharging; you simply take them out of the packaging and start vaping. Once the juice or battery is depleted, you then throw it away and move on to the next one.
This ease of use and their low price point have made them the perfect gateway into vaping.
Why is Everybody Talking About Disposables?
As we’ve just covered, disposable vapes are incredibly easy to use and have gained so much popularity as the go-to vape product for beginners. They come in a wide variety of flavors and can deliver a vape experience that mimics that of smoking a traditional cigarette.
There have also been some significant advances within coil technology with the introduction of mesh coils that has enabled disposable vape pens to deliver an improved experience. So much so that even experienced vapers are now using disposables.
However, there are other reasons why disposables are the talk of the town. Sadly, they have garnered a lot of media attention, and most of it is negative. But are the adverse reports justified?
Firstly there is a lot of misinformation when it comes to vaping in general. However, we will try our best to cover the main points raised and debunk any myths there are about disposable vapes.
How harmful are Disposable Vapes?
Disposables are as safe as any other vape product on the market. While they do still come with some potential hazards, they are a far safer alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. Public Health England has even concluded that vape products are at least 95% safer than combustible tobacco products.
There is also a lot of research that shows vaping is the most effective aid to quitting smoking currently on the market. Most vapers are ex-smokers that have decided to rid themselves of a known deadly habit for something that is much less harmful.
However, that doesn’t mean vaping is 100% safe. The safest thing would be to not vape or smoke at all.
Vape products contain Nicotine (usually nicotine salts in disposable vapes) which is not harmful but can be addictive. If you are not using disposables as a smoking alternative or to suffice nicotine cravings, then it’s best to use a nicotine-free disposable. Disposables also contain flavorings in their e-liquid, which could potentially cause reactions in some people. It’s worth noting that we are still in the infancy of research on the long-term effects of vaping.
So are disposable vapes harmful? On the contrary, they are as safe as any other vape product and a much safer alternative to smoking. So if you are only using them to quit smoking, then you have taken the proper steps.
As with any type of vape product, disposables are a far safer alternative for adult smokers. This is because they do not contain carcinogens or other harmful chemicals like cigarettes. However, that doesn’t mean they are safer than if you didn’t vape at all, just that they are a safer alternative to smoking.
We recommend disposables to anyone looking to quit smoking or transition into vaping. They are the most accessible vape product to use and can deliver an excellent vape experience.
