Disposables: The Alternatives
Following our latest blog, ‘The Truth About Disposables’ which provides insights on why you should quit disposable vapes for good - for reasons such as the detrimental impact on the environment as well as the long-term cost - we want to help you comfortably move away from the single-use devices, and towards a more cost-effective, environmentally-friendly alternative. So, let us introduce you to the vape kits currently easing vapers off both cigarettes and disposable devices.
The One Up R1 Kit is both a refillable and rechargeable device. The concept is to refill the pod with e-liquid - this can be done up to eight times before having to be disposed of. Although this device is technically still considered a disposable, it is a much better alternative for single-use disposables for plenty of reasons; one being the cost.
As you can see, Aspire One Up R1 users would save approximately £30 compared to disposable users over the course of two weeks. £30 may not sound like a lot of money initially, but when you calculate how much this is truly costing you over the course of a month, and then a year - all of a sudden, you're forking out a whopping £1680 on single-use, plastic bars. That's £1680 that could easily be put towards a lavish holiday or a new vehicle!
Bringing the true cost of disposables to light is very important for us; this is because many smokers ditch smoking due to the hefty cost, and instead pick up disposable-vaping which would usually cost between £4 - £6 a bar. Whilst this may sound cheap and cheerful, the long-term cost is evidently far from, and there are definitely cheaper alternatives to both smoking and disposables.
However, the cost isn't the only attractive thing about this kit as it offers plenty of cool features which will guarantee you never touch a single-use disposable again:
- Built-in, 650mAh Rechargeable Battery
- Simple Side-Refilling E-liquid Port
- Constant Output of 3.7V
- Weights Just 32.7g - Suitable For On The Go Vaping
The SMOK Acro Pod Kit is another great option to help you ease off single-use disposables. This pod kit features a 1000mAh battery, 5W-25W output and an adjustable airflow - all without losing the convenience of a single-use disposable. In fact, the fast-charging feature makes it even more convenient than a disposable device!
The SMOK Acro Pod Kit will cost you just £24.99 for a kit that you can keep for a lifetime! You can also currently claim one free e-liquid with the purchase of this kit; we recommend using a nicotine salt such as the ULTD Salts for a vaping experience that a disposable device simply would not be able to provide.
The Aspire Vilter Pod Vape Kit is simple to use for vapers, but there is nothing simple about the production of this kit: the featured replaceable paper drip tip alone was designed to closely replicate a cigarette filter, whilst the large 450mAh built-in battery experience will provide a full day of vaping between charges.
This is a pod kit, so naturally it has a built-in pod that can hold up to 2ml of e-liquid. In The Truth About Disposables, we detailed how e-liquids offer much more choice for flavours than disposable devices; refillable pod kit users get to choose from shortfills, 10ml juices as well as nicotine salt e-liquids.
Aspire have hailed this kit 'the most authentic electronic e-cigarette' - this kit will only cost you £12.99 for the device, one 2ml pod, two paper filter drip tips as well the charging cable. Like most of our vape kits, you can also claim one free e-liquid!
The Vaporesso Xros Mini Kit is another budget-friendly option at just £12.99 for the device, one 1.2ohm pod, and type-C USB charging cable which charges the Xros Mini Device to full battery in just 60 minutes.
This kit offers an easy top-fill solution for those who favour convenience, and the battery level indicator, unlike disposable devices, will alert you when your device needs re-charging - this means you will never be caught short!
