Disposable vaping is the best vaping solution for beginners or those who want to enter the world of vaping without burning hole in their pockets. Disposable vapes are small disposable and non-rechargeable devices that are filled with e-liquids in various flavours. For people who are looking to quit smoking, disposables UK are the best way to mimic the experience of smoking using e-cigarettes at affordable rates. Moreover, you can dispose of the devices where all the puffs are consumed.
Disposable vaping is available in different capacities of puffs and in different flavours with minimum hassle. A disposable vape can be simply used to inhale the e-liquid from the vape without charging or refilling the vape while some vapes are rechargeable to ensure all the e-juice is utilised before disposing of.
Vaping to quit smoking
There’s some confusion and misleading information about vaping, which can make it difficult to work out what’s true or not.
Nicotine vaping is substantially less harmful than smoking. It’s also one of the most effective tools for quitting smoking.
Vaping is not recommended for non-smokers and young people because it is not completely harmless.
Here you will find the facts on vaping, based on scientific evidence and research, plus advice on how to use vapes (sometimes called e-cigarettes or e-cigs) as a tool to quit smoking.
Best disposable vapes for quitting smoking
Disposable vapes are fantastic for people who are looking to quit smoking, as they come prefilled and pre-charged – they can be used straight out of the packet. This also makes them a great starter product for those who have never vaped before.
This is just my personal opinion at is point in time but all our products offer the same features, it really is a question of taste.
Disposable vapes are also the most similar to traditional cigarettes in terms of their shape, size and design. In fact, most disposable vapes forgo a button completely and, instead, are draw-activated, making the experience more akin to smoking a lit cigarette – just without the hassle of fiddling with a lighter. This is why they are sometimes known as cig-a-likes.
It’s estimate the average smoker will spend over £2200 a year (soon to rise drastically) whilst using disposable vapes will only cost a little over £900.
Why do disposable vapes taste better?
The disposable vape boom has dominated the vaping industry for the past 3 years. Their popularity can be attributed to a number of factors, top of the list is their sheer convenience; to be able to buy a vape and use it straight out the box with no prior experience and no upkeep is a big plus for any smoker looking to make the switch who is unfamiliar with the world of vaping.
Now, increasingly, there is a view that disposable vapes also taste much better than refillable vape kits.
Disposable vapes make use of nicotine salts which have a lower pH and offer a smoother and more flavourful vaping experience as opposed to the traditional freebase e-liquid used with refillable vape kits, which is much harsher on the throat. However, nic salts are not restricted to disposables and there is a vast range of flavours and nicotine strength options available for refillable vape kits.

UK Government Advisor Backs Vaping
A top advisor to the UK Government has said that without drastic action – including the promotion of vaping as a less harmful alternative to smoking – the country will miss its smoke-free 2030 target by 7 years.
The report suggests that the Government should encourage smokers to “quit for good” in part by recommending vaping as an alternative.
This includes ensuring that healthcare professionals provide “accurate information on the benefits of switching” to smokers at every intervention opportunity.
In discussing his recommendations, Khan is keen to bust the multitude of myths that circulate about vaping and smoking:
“Some will argue that people should be encouraged to quit all forms of nicotine, and while I understand their concern, my priority is to help people quit smoking as quickly, completely, and permanently as possible. That must also be the overriding public health priority.
However, there is lots of confusion, even misinformation, about vaping. The most common relates to its harm. I have spoken to the very best academics and scientists across the country and internationally. They all told me that vaping is far less harmful than smoking.
In cigarettes, we know that it is not the nicotine that kills you but the other thousands of toxic chemicals, such as tar and carbon monoxide. Vapes give smokers the nicotine they crave but protect them from the toxins they would inhale from a cigarette”
What about the environment?
In the UK we buy half a billion vapes a year and bin a massive 3 million of them every week. That includes rechargeable, single-use, and rechargeable vapes with a single-use chamber.
Vape kits contain lithium – also a vital component in electric car batteries. Recycling vapes would save precious resources from being lost forever.
Are e-cigarettes recyclable?
Like anything with a battery (or cable or plug), vapes can and should be recycled. This is true of single-use vapes, rechargeable vapes and those that are rechargeable with a single use chamber.
If you do use disposable vapes, make sure they are finished before disposal and dispose of them correctly. Some vape shops have a designated collection bin so it is worth checking your local vape shop. If you are able to remove the battery easily, please do so and recycle the battery at your local supermarket or Recycling and Household Waste Site.

MPs back vaping’s potential to radically reduce smoking in the UK
Following an extensive inquiry into e-cigarettes, a new report by the Science and Technology Committee has concluded that the government is missing significant opportunities to tackle UK smoking rates.
Among the recommendations, the Committee urges the government to consider tax breaks for vaping products; allowing wider use of vaping in public places; and creating a streamlined route to medically licenced vaping products.
It also calls on the government to reconsider the regulations around e-cigarette packaging and advertising. Advertising rules currently prevent the industry from making health claims comparing vaping to smoking. The Committee believes this is stopping UK smokers (almost 7 million), from making informed decisions about switching to vaping, considered to be 95% less harmful than cigarettes.
Smoking costs the NHS £17 billion per year and as the government look to make England smoke-free by 2030 a small proportion of the money saved could go towards designated “vape bins” just like they converted street bins into ashtrays on top. Instead of going down the route of prohibition, denying people an opportunity to try vaping, more emphasis needs to be put on seeking a solution as a ban will only create a black market and more illegal products that already exist will enter the supply chain.
