Disposable Vape Vs Pod Systems

What Are Disposable Vapes?

A disposable vape is also known as a disposable e-cigarette. Disposable vapes are small, lightweight, and portable. Its structure has a battery, a heating element (coil), and a prefilled e-liquid cartridge.

Some of these may also have an LED indicator showing battery life or other information. The cartridge contains the e-liquid or vape juice. This juice has a specific flavour and nicotine, like traditional tobacco, menthol, fruity, or dessert flavors.

There are also 0-nicotine disposable vapes in the market, which is a nicotine-free vaping option.

The battery is the main power source for vaporizing the e-liquid when you inhale. The battery is not rechargeable because disposable vapes are meant for single-use or limited use. You dispose of the entire device once the battery dies or the e-liquid is finished. Usually, it can be used for one to two days. 

Types Of Disposables Vapes

  • Cigarette style disposable vapes
  • Disposable vape bars
  • Pen-stye disposable vapes
  • Sub-ohm Disposable Vapes

Advantages Of Disposable Vapes

  • Disposable vapes are very convenient as they come prefilled and ready to use right out of the box. 
  • Since disposable vapes are made for single, there is no need for maintenance like cleaning coils or replacing parts. 
  • Disposable vapes come in a wide range of flavors, like fruity, minty, licorice, icy, etc. 
  • They are much cheaper for people who smoke only occasionally. 
  • With disposable vapes, there is no risk of leaking e-liquid since they come prefilled and sealed by the manufacturer. 
  • Users can test vaping without committing to a more expensive device.

What are Pod Systems?

Pod Systems have a minimal design with no buttons or settings. With some, you just have to inhale from the device to activate it, or simply press a button. You can refill the pods or get prefilled cartridges containing the e-liquid.

Some have closed pods filled and sealed by manufacturers. While the conventional ones have open pods that are refillable for multiple uses.

Again, the liquid comes in various flavors and has nicotine strength. Vape pods have a small battery, usually built into the device. The battery power varies depending on the size and brand of the pod system. Many pods come with USB charging ports for easy recharging.

Advantages of Pod Systems

  • They often have a simple design with no complicated settings, making them easy for beginners. 
  • Refillable pods can be less costly in the long run compared to disposable vapes, as users only need to replace the e-liquid rather than the entire device.
  • Many pod systems use nicotine salts, which have a smooth throat hit and quick nicotine absorption. 
  • Many pod systems offer longer battery life compared to disposable vapes.
  • Refillable pods help reduce waste compared to disposable vapes.

Types Of Disposable Pods

  • Open pods
  • Close pods

Final Thoughts

When it is about picking between disposable vapes and Pod Systems, it depends on your personal preferences and needs. Disposable vapes are affordable and super convenient, making them perfect for beginners. Whereas pod systems might be the right pick if you are looking for a more customizable and long-term solution.

Take, for example, the Sky Hunter 2600, a TPD-compliant vape device that offers an exceptional vaping experience with its 2600 puff capacity and 4 flavours in 1. It is all about big puffs and a long-lasting vaping session.
