Disposable Vapes

Disposable vapes. They have been a thing for quite some years, but what is the deal with them?

Disposable vapes do basically what they say. They are a sealed vape with a small battery, and generally an 18-20 mg flavour pod built into them. You puff away on it, until you either run out of power, or the battery dies, then in the bin it goes. Some of them use “free base” nicotine, but they have a tendency to taste very rough on the throat. The better ones use Nic salts (you can find out about Nic salts HERE).

A bit about their history: After the first modern vape was invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in the mid nineties, as a response to his father dying of lung cancer, vaping rapidly gained a following, especially in the U.S. and Europe. A lot of these earlier vapes were low powered, and frankly not very good ( I know, I used them). As battery tech developed,  vapes became bigger and more powerful, but the quick and easy disposable held its ground. There has been some contention over their use amongst young people, especially in the U.S. where companies have been vilified in the press, but these have tended to be brands owned by tobacco multinationals, who have a great rep for being scrupulous. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case here in the U.K, where most of them are sold from dedicated vape shops, and checks on age are more stringent.

They are a great back up device for a lot of people, especially if you are going out for the night, and don’t want to take either a bulky device, or an expensive one, out with you, and risk losing it. They are also handy if you want to try vaping as an alternative to cigarettes, but don’t feel ready to commit fully.

The ones we have decided to stock are the Geekvape Geekbars. They are good for around 600+ puffs, and have a 20mg Nic salt reservoir. They even have a glowing light on the bottom to show you how your battery is doing, and they come in a great range of fruit, and fruit ice flavours. I carry one around in my hoodie, as its somewhat more manageable than the great clunking monster I normally take with me, when I’m going too and from work. So far Im very impressed.


I hope this was of some hel to you.

Stay safe.
