Nicotine disposable vapes are one of the fastest growing categories in the vaping world. They are generally either a tube stick style or more recently, a box style. They come with a lithium-ion battery and pre-filled flavored eJuice that usually lasts you anywhere from 3,000 puffs to 10,000 puffs. They are very discreet, convenient and make it super easy to take a puff while you're out walking.

Single use vape pens often come in different nicotine strengths. While some people prefer 0mg, you can buy them anywhere from 2% nicotine to 6%, with the most common being 5%.

Nicotine Free

Majority of vapers want nicotine since they're not trying to quit cigarette cold turkey. However, other vapers are at the tail end of their quitting process while others just want to vape flavors with no nicotine. Regardless of your decision, they have non-nicotine vapes.

For people looking to quit smoking, nicotine free can help you by giving you the oral fixation. If you've been vaping to quit cigarettes, you're probably used to vaping flavors. These non-nicotine vapes help you psychologically.


If you're a fan of delta 8, delta 9, delta 10, HHC or CBD, you may have tried hemp disposables. They are a very convenient way to enjoy different cannabinoids while staying discreet. These different cannabinoids are federally legal due to the Farm Bill. The main stipulation is that it needs  to contain no more than 0.3% THC.

Design & Style

There are various designs to vapes but the most popular are tube style and box style. 

different styles and shapes of disposable vapes

Tube Style

When disposable single use vape pens were first introduced, they were more in the tube style. Eventually, it started giving vapers a ton of problems like eJuice leaking or high failure rates.

Box Style

Box style are the newest vapes, like the Elf Bar. Even though all of them don't have the same design, most of the new ones are box shaped. Designs often change like transparent models, curves and grooves along with different features. The new iJoy IC8000 is the first smart disposable vape that shows you how much battery life and eJuice you have left.


Charging your vape is super important. Some vapes don't have the ability to charge your vape but overall, you need it. Some vapes batteries don't last as long as the juice does. If your battery dies before your eJuice runs out, you cannot vape it anymore. Having a rechargeable vape will make sure you're done when there is no juice left. Then you can properly throw it away. Rechargeable disposable vapes usually come with USB-C chargers and charge up really quick. You can usually have it fully charged within 45 minutes.

Nicotine Levels

Nicotine levels in a disposable vape can vary. They are often nicotine salt so a 10mg is equivalent to 0.1% of freebase. 

Some brands make them in 0% and 5% in the USA. They also mix 3% sometimes. In Europe, they have restriction that your vape juice in your disposable should not exceed 2%.


How Do I Put More eJuice in My Disposable?

This is a question that gets asked a lot and more people need to know the truth. You simply should not refill your vapes as opening it can get cause damage. Your vape can start auto-firing if you open it up incorrectly. The wires inside are also very thin so they can rip if you're not careful. They will cause your vape to die right away.
