The disposable e-cigarette has recently taken over the vaping world. Extremely easy to use, no preparation or maintenance. Smokers who want to start vaping, but also regular vapers buy disposable e-cigarettes in bulk. But what’s better? The disposable e-cigarette or a reusable e-cigarette?
As with everything in life, there are pros and cons. Let’s look at this in detail.
What is a disposable vape?
A disposable vape is an e-cigarette that can only be vaped once. But there is no maintenance or preparation for this. They are pen e-cigarettes that are pre-filled with e-liquid and have a pre-charged battery installed. It cannot be refilled or loaded. You just take it out of the box and vape until you run out of e-liquid or the battery dies. If it stops working, you can throw it away.
Most disposable e-cigarettes last around 500 puffs, which is pretty much the same as a pack of 20 cigarettes. You get them with a nicotine salt, which has a strength of about 16mg – 20mg. The nicotine salt hardly causes a throat hit and thus ensures a very smooth vape.
CAK is a branded vape manufacturer from China. We have disposable vapes and rechargeable electronic cigarettes. As a popular disposable electronic cigarettes manufacturer, we have many styles with different nicotine content. You can choose according to your liking.
Pros and cons of disposable e-cigarettes:
Per our disposable e-cigarette:
Easy to Use: This is very important for vaping beginners. Smoking is easy – you light your cigarette and you’re done. Vaping takes a day or two to get used to. This is a major factor in why people are starting out with disposable e-cigarettes in the first place.
No Maintenance: Disposable e-cigarettes require no preparation. Everything is pre-filled and pre-assembled.
No charging: The battery in a disposable e-cigarette is already charged and installed. You don’t have to recharge the battery, so you don’t need a charging cable.
Cheaper: Cost is a big factor when choosing an e-cigarette. Disposable e-cigarettes are cheap. The price is around €5.99
No Commitments: If you’re a smoker looking to try vaping, our disposable e-cigarettes are a great option. There are no obligations, if you don’t like a flavor you can choose another.

Against our disposable vape:
More expensive in the long run: While they are cheaper upfront, disposable e-cigarettes become more expensive to buy in the long run. Usually you pay €5.99 for 2ml e-liquid. Whilst our UK made Red Label E-Liquid costs £4.99 for 10ml. You see how quickly that adds up. Especially if heavy smokers or vapers can use multiple disposable e-cigarettes per day.
Less choice: Of course we offer less choice of flavors for our disposable e-cigarettes. They only have one look, limited flavors and very limited nicotine strength.
Weaker Draw: Disposable vapes don’t have the ability to adjust airflow or swap coils. This means that the way the e-liquid vaporizes cannot be changed. If you want a stronger throat hit, vapor or more flavor there is nothing you can do.
Ecological impact: The clue is in the name. There is nothing reusable about disposable e-cigarettes. When it’s empty, you throw it away. Most of these end up in a landfill because millions of people will use them. That’s a lot of waste. It’s time to say that here at CAK VAPE we understand the potential impact of disposable vapes.
What are rechargeable vapes?
A reusable e-cigarette is a “traditional” e-cigarette. They consist of 4 main parts to function properly. A battery, a tank, an evaporator head and the e-liquid. These e-cigarettes can be recharged and refilled. They have a wide range of looks and features.
They range from pre-filled pods, mods with large battery capacities and wattage, and everything in between. You can customize every part of your vaping experience and then top up with an e-liquid. There are hundreds of flavors and strengths to choose from – you won’t get bored.
Pros and cons of rechargeable vapes
Pro of the reusable e-cigarettes:
HIGH QUALITY: Reusable e-cigarettes are built to last as they are charged and refilled multiple times. They are of high quality and can withstand everyday life.
Significantly cheaper in the long term: If you stop smoking and start vaping with a conventional e-cigarette instead, you will save around €3000 a year. There are smaller costs per week for maintenance with the e-liquid. But compared to disposable e-cigarettes… well, there’s nothing to compare.
Better vaping performance: You can easily customize your vaping experience to get better performance. Adjust your airflow, change e-liquid and atomizer head, change your settings. I can continue this list.
Environmentally friendly: There is no comparison to disposable e-cigarettes. You use bottles with e-liquid, which can be easily recycled and you don’t throw away the entire e-cigarette when the battery is empty.
Choices: E-Liquid Flavor, Strength, Nicotine Level, Coil Resistance, Output Power, Vapor Style, E-Cigarette Size and Shape, Airflow. There’s just so much choice.
Against the rechargeable vape
Maintenance: An e-cigarette requires maintenance. The e-liquid has to be topped up, the battery has to be charged and the atomizer head has to be replaced every few weeks.
Acquisition costs: A complete e-cigarette kit costs more money than disposable e-cigarettes. For a vape starter kit you pay between 15€ and 35€. But in the long run, a kit is cheaper than disposable e-cigarettes.
This was a look at disposable e-cigarettes versus traditional e-cigarettes. There are pros and cons on both sides, but the most important thing, whichever you choose, is that you quit smoking and just vape.
