Choose the right device

It’s also important to choose the right device. This should be easy to use and work well with nicotine salts.

One option is to use a pre-filled pod system. These are really just as simple as a disposable device – you simply clip a pod in and inhale. Elfa pods are the current best option but there are others about to be launched.

Another alternative is the Aspire R1. This device is rechargeable and refillable, but comes with an inbuilt coil. When the coil burns out (typically after about 6-7 refills) you discard it. This makes it a great crossover from disposables to reusable devices.

The third option is the Vaporesso Xros Mini 3, along with the Xros 3. This is our current favourite option, as it is reliable, easy to use, works well with bar salts and gives a great vape. As with disposables, it is button free, so after filling all you need to do is inhale. We find it works well with bar salts when using a 0.8Ω coil, or a 0.6Ω coil for an airier vape.

Final thoughts on disposable vaping

Disposables sometimes get a bad rep, but it’s worth remembering they have helped many smokers take their last cigarette. If you are a smoker, they can be a really great introduction to vaping.

Over the long term, though, it’s well worth switching to a refillable device. This will both help you save money and reduce your impact on the environment.


How do you recharge a disposable vape?

Unfortunately,the most Disposable Vape devices are designed to be used once and then discarded. (This is not the case in other countries where disposable devices come with larger amounts of e-liquid. In the UK, the maximum legal capacity is 2ml, and a single charge battery in a disposable is sufficient to vapourise the e-liquid.)

We suggest using either a device with a pre-filled pod or a crossover device such as the Aspire R1, which offers almost all of the convenience of disposables but is also refillable.
