What is a disposable vape?

A disposable vape is a cheap and simple way to explore what vaping has to offer, ideal for first-time vapers as no previous vaping experience is necessary.

Disposable vapes are inhale-activated vapes that are compact and palm sized. They offer up to 600 puffs and come prefilled with 2ml of 20mg (2%) nicotine salt vape juice in usually a 50/50 VG/PG mix. Nic salt vape juice offers a smooth MTL (mouth to lung) inhale, with fast-acting nicotine to curb your nicotine cravings faster and for longer periods of time. 

Disposable vape bars are most often powered by a built-in 550mAh battery that provides approximately 600 puffs depending on usage and length of draw taken on each puff. 

When the device is finished, an LED light at the bottom of the device will blink to indicate that the device has ran out of vape juice, or the battery has run out of power. You may experience a slightly burnt or metallic taste on the last few draws, and you will notice vapour production is reduced. As the name ‘disposable’ suggests, you can safely dispose of the used unit and replace it by shopping with TABlites.

How disposable vapes work

Disposable vapes are ergonomic, compact, lightweight and easy-to-use devices that are available in a wide range of delicious flavours to make the transition over to vaping as smooth and comfortable as ever.

Disposable vapes are designed to provide a MTL or mouth-to-lung inhale. This style of inhaling involves a similar technique as inhaling on a traditional cigarette. Draw the vapour from the mouthpiece of the vape into the mouth, then into the lungs. This two-step process is familiar to ex-smokers, and thanks to the nicotine salts will provide a smooth and comfortable throat inhale.

Disposable vapes feature smart heating technology - all you need to do is inhale to get started! When you place your lips on the mouthpiece and inhale, the device will activate immediately providing instant satisfaction in the form of a nicotine vapour. 

Lost Mary and Elf Bar disposable vapes don’t rely on buttons or menu systems - just remove the device from the packaging and start vaping. They provide up to 600 puffs, similar to what 20 cigarettes would provide.

TPD-compliant disposable vapes are sealed pods, meaning there are no access points to refill the device or replace the coils. This makes disposable devices appealing to first-time vapers or more experienced vapers looking for hassle-free vaping. With this option, you can vape on the go with ease.

The Lost Mary BM600 and Elf Bar 600 disposable vape bars are satisfying nicotine delivery systems and are available in our 5 for £20 disposable vape deal where you can mix and match and stock up, so you are never without a vape device.
