The Past, Present, and Future of Disposable Vapes
In Part 3 in the Evolution of E-Cigarettes, we look at disposable vapes, the fastest growing e-cigarette market that has taken the world by storm.
Chances are, you’re familiar with disposable vapes whether you’ve used them yourself or not. In the last few years, they’ve become one of the most popular options for those looking to quit smoking.
Here’s how disposable vapes have contributed to the vape industry and how they’re shaping its future.
How Disposable Vapes Got Their Start
Disposable e-cigarettes are so popular today that it’s hard to believe they’ve only been around for a few years. Once people realized how convenient disposable vapes were, they skyrocketed in popularity. Disposables jumped to the top to become the most popular vape products on the market, rapidly outpacing box mods and stick type pod mods.
Benefits of Disposables
Vaping is the most popular smoking cessation aid in the UK. The numbers show that it’s effective in reducing or eliminating smoking and preventing relapse. But for e-cigarettes to be worth using to heavy smokers, they must be just as easy to obtain and as simple to use as cigarettes – with as few drawbacks as possible. Disposables are now by far the largest e-cigarette market because the user experience is also the most comparable to cigarettes.
They’re also the most affordable of any e-cigarette type, so the entry barrier is lower and attractive to smokers compared to stick type or large mods. Disposables such as the AirsPops ONE USE are a great way to try out other flavours with little risk or commitment compared to buying a pack of pre-filled pods or an entire bottle of e-liquid.
Fully charged and filled out of the box, disposable e-cigarettes have no maintenance requirements as users can simply (and hopefully responsibly!) discard a depleted device into a recycle bin. They’re also unlikely to leak or encounter any loss or unpleasant changes to taste over its usage lifetime. Plus, they’re available in dozens of flavours to suit your preferences.
Lastly, disposable e-cigarettes (and vaping in general) are proven to be more economical in the long run than smoking. One disposable vape or refill pod can last the average user for up to 2 weeks or a heavy user for several days where the same amount of money would buy one pack of cigarettes.
The Problem with Disposables
For all of their benefits, disposable e-cigs are a growing ecological problem. Where other mods are inherently designed to be reusable with consumable parts, disposables are designed to be discarded in its entirety. Being electronic devices however, disposable e-cigarettes aren’t meant to mix with your general trash. They can only be safely dismantled and recycled at centres that can process electronic waste.
We hope to see a future where e-cigarette companies are paying more attention to these concerns and we highly encourage consumers to take care when disposing of their single-use e-cigarettes.
Disposable Vapes – Still an Important Part of the Evolution of E-Cigs
It’s through disposables that we’ve finally reached the tipping point that offers smokers an easy, convenient and healthier alternative to cigarettes for a comparable experience and more cost savings in the long run.
We hope to see positive change in the future when it comes to the environmental downsides of disposables, and we’re committed to doing our part. We look forward to creating a better future as a part of the e-cigarette industry!
