What Is A Disposable Vape?

December 23, 2023

One of the first vapes many vapers will use is the disposable vape. These devices are pre-charged and pre-filled with e-liquid, ready to use immediately. Manufacturers have designed this type specifically for ease of use. 

However, once they run out of battery or e-juice, you'll need to dispose of them and buy a new disposable vape. 

Below, we’ll cover a brief overview of how they work, the different types available, and their benefits. 

How Do Disposable Vapes Work?

To understand what a disposable vape is and how a disposable vape works, it’s crucial to comprehend how its various components function. Some of the components disposable vapes will have include a battery, a reservoir that holds the e-liquid, and a coil (its other name is an ‘atomizer’), which contains a wicking material. While these components might look different depending on the manufacturer’s designs, all these elements are necessary to produce the vapour. 

At its most basic, the process is quite simple. The battery powers the coil, and the coil then heats the e-liquid until it turns into vapour. Once the e-liquid is heated, you can draw on the vape to inhale the vapour that is produced.

However, the wicking material is the crucial component of the whole process. For those unfamiliar, the most wicking material common is cotton, which absorbs the e-liquid (also called e-juice). The coils then heat the absorbed e-liquid, which starts the vaporization process. 

Unlike reusable devices, single-use e-cigarettes don’t need their coils regularly changed; in refillable vape devices, over time, the cotton or other wicking material will degrade and need replacing.

There are environmental concerns regarding e-cigarettes. However, they can also produce a more effortless and convenient experience for the user.

What Are the Different Types of Disposable Vapes?

The two main types of disposable vapes are rechargeable and non-rechargeable vapes. When you have a non-rechargeable vape, you’ll need to dispose of it responsibly and replace it when it runs out of e-liquid or the battery dies. 

However, suppose you want a disposable vape that will last longer, regardless of the battery dying. In that case, you can recharge it if it's rechargeable and continue using it until it runs out of e-liquid. 

Generally, rechargeable disposable vapes will have more puffs available, and manufacturers can give these vapes a larger e-liquid capacity.

However, the rechargeable option might not be for vapers seeking more discreet vapes. After all, non-rechargeable vapes are often smaller than rechargeable ones and, thus, easier to transport around or fit in smaller pockets. While all disposable vapes remain compact, the non-rechargeable option would be best if you want the most discreet vape.

What Are the Benefits of Disposable Vapes?

Below, we cover some of the advantages that come with using disposable vapes. 

Easy to Use

One of the most significant benefits of using disposable vapes is that they’re straightforward for users to navigate. With a disposable vape, there’s no need for a lot of instructions or complicated assembly; you don’t need to worry about buying extra components like replacement coils, wicking materials, or e-liquids. 

When you remove the vape from the packaging, it should be ready to use. 

The only thing to look out for might be a cover on the mouthpiece. You won’t be able to inhale from the vape if you don’t remove it. However, you’ll soon notice if that’s the case with your choice of disposable vape. 

You simply vape until it runs out of e-liquid or the battery runs out, and dispose of it. For rechargeable versions, you recharge it and can use it until it runs out of e-liquid. 

Whichever option suits you best, it’s important to remember that this ease of use doesn’t come without a negative environmental impact, so if you’re environmentally conscious, you might not prefer to use disposable vapes.

Small and Lightweight

Only some people have a bag or even want to carry one, so you might not have a convenient place to put a larger or heavier disposable vape. Also, people often don’t want to carry around heavy accessories. However, disposable vapes are typically lightweight, discreet, and easy to transport. 

The portability of disposable vapes makes them attractive to many vapers, as the vapes can easily fit in pockets without protruding or ruining an outfit. 


Although some vapers might want a longer-lasting vape, these do typically come with a higher initial cost. Individual disposable vapes tend to be inexpensive, both for rechargeable and non-rechargeable versions, which is another huge benefit for vapers. Instead of having a higher entry cost, disposable options tend to be more affordable to get started. Of course, it’s important to remember that they don’t last as long. 

The low prices of disposable vapes also allow those who have just transitioned from cigarette smoking to vaping to avoid spending large amounts of money investing in more expensive e-cigarette kits. However, their inexpensive nature might only be a financial benefit in the short term. If vapers buy new disposable vapes often, it might not be an economic benefit in the long run. 

Final Thoughts

Disposable vapes and non-disposable vapes have a lot in common but come with some essential differences to keep in mind. Disposable vapes offer ease of use and convenience to users and must be disposed of when they run out of e-liquid or, in the case of non-rechargeable options, when the battery dies. 

Disposable vapes are popular among vapers who are on the go and aren’t looking to invest in more expensive options. Discover our collection of disposable vapes at WAKA Vape today!
