Another day, another vape debate has hit the news. And this time, it’s about disposables. Are disposable vapes worse than refillable vapes? This is an ongoing debate, and, with disposable vapes so popular right now, the stakes are upped. Vaping has become a much more polarising subject in recent times as well. With many companies introducing disposable vaping devices or accessories into their line-up, this has led to conflict on blogs and social media.
The Pros and Cons: A Complex Discussion
One side of the discussion says that disposable vapes are much worse because they’re not reusable and you can’t refill them, that they cost way more than normal vapers would ever spend on their e-cigs or e-cig device (unless they’re super cheap).
On the other side of the discussion, proponents argue that disposable vapes offer unique advantages. Their convenience lies in their pre-filled nature, eliminating the need for refilling or maintenance. While they may appear pricier initially, the upfront cost includes the device and e-liquid, making them a cost-effective choice. Additionally, the compact size and ready-to-use nature make them ideal for on-the-go vaping.
Disposable Vaping and Health Concerns
One of the biggest concerns that crop up with disposable vaping is the long-term effects on your health. It’s a popular misconception that if someone vapes on disposables every day, their health will be greatly affected by chemicals and other toxins in them. This is not true. Disposable vapes have been tested for many, many things and Public Health England (PHE), maintains that vaping is 95% less harmful than tobacco. However, much more research needs to be done in order to come to a solid conclusion about their safety in comparison to other methods of vaping.
The Pros of Disposable Vapes
One of the biggest benefits of disposable vapes is how much money you save. Disposable vapes are significantly cheaper than normal vapes, which can be a huge incentive for people who don’t want to spend a lot of money on vaping. Additionally, these disposable vapes don’t require the same expensive maintenance required by normal vapes. The cartridges are not refillable and must be discarded after use. This cuts down on time and hassle! Another pro is that they are easy to carry around with you when travelling. Since disposables do not have to be refilled or cleaned like normal vapes, they are much more portable and convenient to bring along on your travels. Here is a blog explaining all the finer details when taking your disposable vapes abroad.
Going Out With Your Disposable Vape
The pros of using disposable vapes on the go are quite simple. One, they are much easier to carry around and use when you need them. Or, if you’re going out for the night and don’t want to bring a big bulky device, disposable vapes are an easy option. They are also much more discreet than other e-cigs. This is because of their small size, which makes them easy to carry on your person or stash in a bag or purse.
The Pros of Refillable Vapes
One of the most obvious advantages of reusable vapes is that they are far more cost-effective but much harder to maintain. In fact, many vape companies give their customers discounts when they purchase a kit or a starter kit with the intention of using them on a disposable basis. But, once you’ve got your hands on some reusable vapes, you only need to worry about buying liquid and can enjoy your vaping practices for as long as you have one! Another huge pro of reusable vapes is that they can have an auto-shutoff feature where if you leave the vape unattended for too long, it’ll automatically shut off so nothing bad will happen while you’re away from it. Finally, reusable vapes are more environmentally friendly as natural resources will not be wasted unnecessarily as disposables would!

The Disadvantages of Disposable Vapes
The biggest disadvantage of disposable vapes is that they are not reusable. Once you open the package and use it, it’s done for good. You can’t refill or recharge them like normal vapes because they have no tank or liquid, though you can mod them by becoming a ‘disposable hacker which has been a trend on YouTube lately. However, we strongly recommend you don’t attempt this and that you recycle them instead.
You’re stuck with what you get in the package. Disposable vapes also do not come with any added features that normal vapes often have such as adjustable settings or even an LCD display. If you’re used to e-cigarettes like this, it can be very frustrating because these features are standard with every device out there. Another con is that they cannot be taken apart or upgraded as easily as normal vapes.
The Disadvantages of Refillable Vapes
There are a few disadvantages to using refillable vapes, according to an article in the Huffington Post. There is no guarantee that the liquid inside will be pure or safe when buying from non-reputable brands, they can sometimes be expensive and they can also be hard to refill.
They are much harder to maintain because they need to be cleaned and, if not done correctly, you can quickly be coughing up a lot of money buying new coils.
To conclude, let’s get one thing straight: disposable vapes are practically no more harmful than normal vaping. It is true that you can’t refill them and some don’t recycle properly, but overall, it’s a pretty negligible difference. Disposable vapes are still considered safer than smoking—we know this as they’re selling like hotcakes in this toxic world! And, while the argument over whether disposable vapes will win the day or not is still ongoing, what we do know for sure is that people want e-cigarettes. With the move toward a greener society and healthier lifestyles, companies are finding themselves on very solid ground by marketing them this way. They are also making it easier for consumers to switch from traditional cigarettes as disposable vapes become more popular due to their convenience factor for new vapours.
