Disposables contain nic salt e-liquid usually of a 50/50 ratio. Nicotine salt is created when normal nicotine is paired with a form of acid (like benzoic) which alters the PH and formulation of the compound. Inhaling nicotine salt vs freebase e-liquid gives a much smoother throat hit, and enters your bloodstream a lot quicker. This is why nicotine salt is available in higher doses, like 20mg (2%). You don’t need as much of it to feel satisfied and it’s hard to overdo it as the satisfaction is almost instant. Nic salts can be purchased in 10ml bottles too, so once you move on to a refillable vape you can stick with nic salts. They’re also available in 5mg (0.5%), 10mg (1%), and 20mg (2%) to cater to almost everyone.
Disposables contain e-liquid that’s tested to TPD standards and are legal to sell in the UK. Disposables are just as safe as other e-liquid that you would use to fill up your tank. Anything sold here at Prime Vapes has been tested against these regulations and is safe to sell here in the UK. A disposable may become unsafe when it’s not purchased from a reputable company. This can include unregulated e-liquid, like fakes or replicas, or a tank that’s bigger than 2ml.
On average, each disposable vape contains 600 puffs. This is because the average person takes around 300 puffs to use up 1ml of e-liquid, so 2ml is around 600 puffs. This will vary from person to person depending on the length of the puff. The fuller the drag to more ‘puffs’ you use. 600 puffs don't really equate to a certain length of time either. Depending on how often you vape and how long you inhale means your disposable can last you anywhere from half a day up to a full week.
Vapes that advertise 3500 puffs containing nicotine are illegal and not regulated to TPD standards. They contain more than 2ml of nicotine-containing e-liquid, sometimes up to 10ml. This is illegal. There are 3500 puff disposables to legally purchase, like the Elux 3500, that contain no nicotine and have been tested to TPD standards. You cannot guarantee the quality of the e-liquid inside unregulated products, so you may not have a great experience. If something goes wrong with these devices the seller can’t help you, however, if you purchase a product from a reputable vendor they will be there to help.
The disposable vape market is so large so saying one brand is the best is tricky. The three most popular brands are Elf Bar, Lost Mary, and Elux. Each of these brands has different styles of disposables. Elf Bar has adopted the classic cylindrical shape with a thin mouthpiece, and Lost Mary has a flatter (QM600) and a square style (BM600). Elux Bars are more rectangular with a small mouthpiece. These features alone can be a decider when choosing a brand, excluding the flavours. All disposable brands share a few of the most popular flavours, like Blue Razz Lemonade, Strawberry Ice, and Blueberry Sour Raspberry. There are so many different and unique flavours in each brand, like Gummy Bear, and Strawberry Ice-Cream, that it’s hard to decide which brand to start with. Some brands offer mesh coils, like Crystal Bar and Lost Mary, to allow deeper flavour. All disposables feature a 2% nic salt blend, and some e-liquids are made in China, the UK, and other places. The best way to decide which disposable brand is the best is through trial and error. Maybe pick up three different brands in our 3 for £12 deal and try them for yourself.
2% nicotine is 20mg nicotine. This is the highest amount of nicotine legally available to buy. For people quitting smoking who smoked 20+ cigarettes a day, 20mg is usually the best strength to go with. This is because 20mg will give similar satisfaction as cigarettes. Some people find that disposables have a nice hit, but give them a headache or nausea. This is because your nicotine dose is too high. You can lower your nicotine consumption by switching to a refillable pod kit and using 10mg or 5mg nic salts.
