THE RISE OF DISPOSABLES
Posted on 02 February 2022
These last two years of on-and-off lockdowns have taken their toll on the best of us. However, if you’ve been lucky enough to venture beyond the four walls of your apartment in the last two years, you’ve probably noticed the increased prevalence of disposable e-cigarettes. You know the ones I'm talking about; easily mistaken for an analog cigarette at first glance. They’re even smaller than the pocket-sized refillable vape devices and they produce just enough vapor to not be obnoxious on a public street. So why has the popularity of these devices skyrocketed in recent years? I’m glad you asked. There are a number of benefits to disposable vapes that make them the go-to vape option for everyone, from experienced vapers to complete beginners.
Disposables are low cost. Traditional vaping often comes with an initial “start up cost” that’s not insignificant. Even the cost of smaller devices can add up quickly when you consider all of the accessories you’ll need to get started. It’s a lot to think about; the device itself, the e-liquid, some back up coils, and maybe a battery or two. For someone who isn’t sure yet of which style of vaping will work for them or which device will meet their needs, disposables that typically cost less than $25.00 all together are a great way to ease into vaping without a major financial commitment.
Disposables are low commitment. Speaking of commitment, whether you’re a complete beginner, or just new to the mouth-to-lung style of vaping, it can be difficult to answer questions like how frequently you’ll want to use your device. Will you leave it at home most of the time, bring it on nights out, or keep it in your pocket 24/7? Disposables are the smallest devices available on the market, which makes them ideal for portability. They fit easily into any bag or pocket, and don’t require the user to think about things like back up e-liquid or a portable charger. They can be left at home or kept in your pocket without any extra thought. There's also the flavor commitment to consider. Disposables generally last between three days to a week depending on frequency of use, so you’re not affixed with one vape flavor for a longer period of time the way you might be with traditional e-liquid. This flexibility makes disposables ideal for anyone who doesn’t know yet which flavors they prefer, or ideal for those who simply want to keep a little variety in their vape rotation.
Disposables are easy to use. Open the package and vape. That’s it. While traditional mod-and-tank vaping will always hold a special place in the hearts of those of us who started there, it’s no secret that mod-and-tank vaping does come with some maintenance challenges. Refilling pods and tanks with e-liquid can be messy, and taking everything apart to clean can be time consuming. That’s not even taking into consideration the time it takes to learn about wattage, coil resistances, and using your device within its recommended parameters. Luckily for anyone who doesn't have the time or just anyone who doesn't want to get involved in traditional mod maintenance, disposables offer an easy solution. Without even a power button to worry about, these draw-activated, prefilled devices are the most user friendly devices on the market.
Disposables are widely available. There are a multitude of disposable vape brands and flavors available on the market right now, and you can usually find them everywhere from specialty vape stores to gas stations. The good news is that with all the options available, it’s likely you won’t have to go far to find a disposable that fits your preferences. However, we always recommend visiting your local specialty vape shop, like NYX ECIGS to find the highest quality products!
Disposable vapes are some of the most cost effective, convenient, and user friendly devices on the market right now. With the constant innovation in flavor quality, and widespread availability making them popular amongst beginners and expert vapers alike, it’s no surprise that disposables have become some of the most popular vape devices on the market.
