Disposable vapes are a great way to try vaporizing before you invest in a reusable cartridge or pod system. They’re small, portable, easy to use and require zero maintenance.
Disposable vapes contain a lot of plastic, paper, and lithium batteries which can harm the environment if disposed of improperly. To minimize their impact on the planet, please recycle them whenever possible.
Easy to Use
Disposable vapes are the most portable and easy-to-use type of device. Designed to be used once and then discarded, they come prefilled with your choice of e-liquid and contain a rechargeable battery. Simply remove your new device from its packaging, inhale through the mouthpiece and then exhale. The process is simple and requires no prior knowledge of vaporizing.
Disposable pod-style devices have gained popularity in the vape market due to their ease of use and sleek design. They are also often available in fruit/candy and other novel flavours that may appeal to youth and other non-tobacco users.
Unlike a regular cigarette, disposable vapes are small and discreet. They are easy to carry around and can be used in almost any location without raising eyebrows. For those who prefer a more relaxed and calm experience, Delta 8 disposable vapes offer a soothing cerebral experience and calming body sensation. It works with the body’s endocannabinoid system to reduce pain and inflammation, resulting in an overall sense of relaxation and wellbeing.
Easy to Carry
Unlike other vaping devices such as mods, refillable vapes and pod systems, disposables are compact, lightweight, and require no charging or maintenance. They are pre-filled and ready to use right out of the packaging – simply insert and inhale.
They’re also easy to carry while traveling — especially in comparison to a traditional cigarette or vape mod that may need to be recharged or have a limited battery life. This is thanks to the fact that they’re often smaller in size and come in a variety of portable, travel-friendly packaging.
They can also be easily cleaned on the go by putting them in a shallow container of iso alcohol and submerging them for a few hours. Just remember to dry the atomizer thoroughly before using it again. It’s recommended to bring a travel-friendly container or tray to hold the vaporizer during air travel so that it can be carried through the security line without disrupting the other parts of your luggage.
Easy to Clean
Vape pens are easy to clean and recycle once their pre-filled e-liquid capacity or battery has reached the end of its lifespan. They are classed as small electricals or WEEE and should be placed into WEEE skips at household waste and recycling centres, rather than through your kerbside battery collection service.
Placing lithium-ion batteries in the general trash or recycling bins is one of the leading causes of fires. The electrolyte in these batteries can ignite paper and plastics, causing them to burn and explode. This creates toxic smoke, wastes recyclable materials, destroys the recycling truck and puts the driver at serious risk.
Cleaning a cartridge-based vape pen is generally easier than a tank-based device, as you only need to remove any remaining e-liquid from the mouthpiece and outside of the container. Simply dab a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol and scrub the mouthpiece until it is completely clear. Always remember to wipe down the connection between the mouthpiece and the vape’s battery, as a dirty mouthpiece can contaminate your e-liquid and produce harsh flavors or dramatically reduce your vaping experience.
Easy to Recycle
In a disposable vape device, you’ll have the option to recycle the battery once its lifespan is complete. This is essential to minimise the impact on the environment. Most lithium ion batteries are able to be recycled in a similar way to mobile phones or other electronics. Check your local laws for more information on how to correctly dispose of this waste.
If you have a disposable pod or tank-style vape, the coil can also be recycled. Coils are made of metal wire and wicking material that soaks up the e-liquid. Most are removable but some come fixed inside the tank or pod. Check with your local vape shop or recycling centre for more details.
Single use pens that aren’t properly disposed of create a large amount of waste in landfills and on the planet. They can leak metals and battery acid into the ground or water and contaminate habitats for animals. This waste can also pollute the ecosystem, causing harm for generations to come.
