Are Disposable Vapes Cheaper Than Vapes?

are disposable vapes cheaper than vapes?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 18 months, you would have heard of, or at least seen Disposables Vapes and how they have taken over the vaping world. Every shop you go in seems to have a selection of these brightly coloured vape pens on offer, and the streets are filled with people using them as sales and usage of these devices seems to have skyrocketed somewhat in the past 18 months.

You might be reading this still on the curious side having not actually used them yourself, and may have some questions including the one that’s in the title of this blog. If this is the case, don’t worry as I’ve got you covered as I’m going to take a good look into this subject and give comparison between the two things, as contrary to popular belief, they aren’t as cheap as they seem in the long run!

Shopping with Vape69 can save you over £100 a month by switching from Disposable Vapes. Read on to find out how!

About Disposable Vapes

I’ll start off by giving a bit of a breakdown about what exactly a Disposable Vape is, just in case you weren’t aware.

Disposable Vapes are single use vaping devices, designed to last for a specific amount of puffs before reaching the end of it’s life and it’s then disposed of (do you see where the name came from?!)

The designs of them vary based on which brand you buy, Elf Bar or Lost Mary are probably the most notorious within the Disposable world and most well known as well. Most of them have the common theme of being brightly coloured though!

Inside of each Disposable is relatively similar, there’ll be a small wire coil, a wick, vape juice (normally around 1.2ml-2ml…remember this as I’m going to bring it up again later) and a lithium-ion battery, which is what stops these single use plastic devices from being recycled, due to safety issues of batteries being compressed at recycling centres.

How Much Does A Disposable Vape Cost?

The prices of Disposables do vary, and some retailers will offer them at a cheaper rate the more you buy, or some will price them under the RRP to compete with nearby retailers in a classic case of retail wars

We’ll use the RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of an Elf Bar to be sold at UK retail, and that is £5.99 per device.

Lost Mary are also a similar price, with a few other brands like ELUX or Geekbar being marginally cheaper at £5.49 per device.

Are Disposable Vapes Cheaper Than Vapes?

No, they’re really not cheaper when compared to a refillable vaping device. You can buy a 10ml bottle of nic salt vape juice for only £1.69 and the cost of getting the same amount of vape juice from Disposables would cost you over £30. Making it 95% more expensive to vape using Disposables!

One Disposable Vape costs on average £5.99, and for this amount all you get is 2ml of vape juice, sometimes less, and they aren’t designed to last long either! If you’re using this device frequently, chances are you’re going to use the battery life or vape juice up in a relatively short time frame, likely within the same day that you buy it, and then you’re going to need to buy another one.

And this is where the costs soon add up, of consistently buying a new Disposable every day and this is why I feel they are nowhere near being cheaper than a refillable vape device!

What Is A Cheaper Way To Vape?

Right, quick maths time! If you were spending £6 every day on a Disposable Vape, that’s £43 a week and totals up to £172 a month…just on Disposables! So for that total weekly amount, let’s see what you could get by shopping with us here at Vape69!

You could buy yourself the Uwell Caliburn G2 vape device, which comes with everything you need to get started, including two coils which are the main maintenance factor of any vaping device and these two coils should last you for a couple of weeks at the very minimum.

And with the remainder of the money, you can get yourself 11 bottles of 10ml Disposable Vape flavours from our newest range of premium Nic Salt vape juice…Vape Bar Nic Salts! And one 10ml bottle should last you at least 2 days if not more, depending on how much you use your vape so 11 bottles should last you at least 3 weeks!

It can be confusing know what to do with a refillable vape device after upgrading from using Disposables, which is why I’ve written this handy guide on how to set up and use your Caliburn G2 which I recommend checking out!
