Disposable vapes have become increasingly popular, thanks to their convenience and portability. However, there are a number of downfalls to disposable vapes that vapers should be aware of.
Disposable vapes are a significant source of plastic waste and contain single-use lithium batteries. Once they are finished, they cannot be easily recycled and so are often thrown away, where they can end up in landfills or the ocean.
The lithium batteries in disposable vapes cannot be reused or charged and have a small battery capacity. This means that they often end up being discarded after only a few uses, which further contributes to the environmental impact of disposable vapes.
Illegal Chinese Imports
A number of disposable vapes on the market are illegal imports from China. These can be appealing as they often have a higher liquid and battery capacity, meaning they last longer and offer better value for money. However, these vapes are imported and sold illegally and so are unregulated products. These vapes may not meet UK safety standards, and they may contain harmful chemicals that are not allowed to be sold on the UK market.
Disposable vapes often contain high levels of nicotine. This can be dangerous, especially for young people and those who are new to vaping. By choosing to use e-liquids in a pod or mod, you can tailor the nicotine strength to your requirements and save money.
How to Choose a Safe Vape
If you are considering using a disposable vape, there are a few things you can do to choose a safe one.
- Buy from a reputable retailer. This will help to ensure that the vape you are buying is safe and meets all applicable regulations. Remember, if it looks too good to be true, be cautious!
- Look for a vape that is TPD registered. The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) is a set of regulations that govern the sale of tobacco products in the European Union. TPD-registered vapes have been tested and meet certain safety standards.
- Choose a vape with a 2ml maximum capacity and 20mg maximum nicotine strength. These are the maximum limits for e-liquids in the UK.

Replaceable Pod Vapes
These vapes are like disposable vapes, and there are two options. You can choose pre-filled pods that can be easily replaced on a rechargeable vape device, or you can choose to fill your pods with the liquid of your choice. These options offer a more sustainable option as rather than replacing the whole device only the pod containing liquid is replaced and the vape itself can be recharged several times.
Mods & Tanks
These pods and tanks are more advanced vapes that offer more customization options. They can be used with a variety of different e-liquids, and they can be used for both nicotine and CBD vaping.
