Disposable Vape Vs Pod Systems

By Neil Fearns 

What Is Disposable Vapes?

A disposable vape, also known as a disposable e-cigarette, is a small, lightweight, and portable device. It consists of a battery, a heating element (coil), and a prefilled e-liquid cartridge. Some models also feature an LED indicator that shows battery life or other information. The cartridge contains e-liquid or vape juice, which comes in various flavours and nicotine levels, including traditional tobacco, menthol, fruity, and dessert flavours. There are also nicotine-free disposable vapes available.

The battery powers the vaporization of the e-liquid when you inhale. Since disposable vapes are designed for single or limited use, the battery is not rechargeable. Once the battery is depleted or the e-liquid is finished, the entire device is discarded. Typically, a disposable vape lasts 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 flavours, like fruity, minty, liquorice, 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 feature a minimal design without buttons or settings. To activate them, you either inhale from the device or press a button, depending on the model. Pods can be refilled with e-liquid or come as prefilled cartridges. Some systems use closed pods that are filled and sealed by manufacturers, while others have open, refillable pods for multiple uses.

The e-liquid in these pods comes in various flavours and nicotine strengths. Pod systems have a small battery, typically built into the device, with power varying based on the size and brand. Many pod systems are equipped with USB charging ports for convenient 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

Choosing between disposable vapes and pod systems depends on your personal preferences and needs. Disposable vapes are affordable and highly convenient, making them ideal for beginners. On the other hand, pod systems might be a better choice if you seek a more customizable and long-term solution.

For instance, the Sky Hunter 2600 is a TPD-compliant vape device that provides an exceptional vaping experience with its 2600 puff capacity and four flavours in one. It is designed for those who enjoy big puffs and long-lasting vaping sessions.
