Stoptober 2023 is a Government backed campaign that encourages smokers to quit the habit during the month of October. Research shows that not smoking for the entire month of October increases the chances of quitting smoking permanently by 5 times.
Disposable vape bars like Lost Mary, Elf Bar and Elux offer convenient, maintenance-free devices that require no previous vaping knowledge to get started. But, the single-use nature of disposables is very wasteful and there are more eco-friendly alternatives available.
We have teamed up with the Green Wings Project which is on a mission to minimise disposable vape waste and reduce the environmental impact of single-use vape devices.
You can find Green Wings Recycling points at our vape stores in the UK and at Tablites HQ in Manchester. These points make recycling easy. It's available for both online customers and those visiting our vape shops.

It’s time to make the switch this Stoptober
This Stoptober, we want people who use disposable vapes and are 18 or older to switch to refillable and rechargeable devices. This will greatly reduce vape waste in the UK.
If you are new to the world of vaping we are here to help and guide you on your vaping journey.
What is a rechargeable and refillable vape?
A rechargeable and refillable vape kit is made up of a battery, pod, coil and e-liquid. Let’s take a look at how the individual components of an e-cigarette work.
The battery is what powers the vape. Lithium-ion batteries are most commonly used as they can be recharged and reused again. The advancement in vape battery technology has come a long way since the bulky and heavy vape kits from 10 years ago.
Small palm sized devices that are not much bigger than disposable vapes that feature large capacity batteries (up to 1000mAh) are now available offering a compact and lightweight option ideal for on-the-go vaping. Pod system kits provide ample power for a full day of vaping contained in a portable and low-profile casing.
Vape Pod or Tank
The vape pod is a cartridge where the e-liquid is stored. Some vape pods feature a built-in coil to remove the need for messy coil changes. Many tanks offer adjustable airflow, allowing you to tailor the texture of the vapour by opening and closing the airflow port.
If you are making the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes this Stoptober a closed airflow will provide a cigarette-like inhale to closely mimic traditional cigarette smoking.
Prefilled pods are also available with devices like the SKE Crystal Plus kit. These pods are fitted with an integrated coil (fitted heating element) and come pre-filled with 2ml of nicotine salt vape juice in a wide range of vape flavours, designed to provide up to 600 puffs.
Pre-filled pods offer an additional layer of convenience, a great choice for those looking to advance to more permanent vape devices this Stoptober.
Vape Coil or Atomizer
The atomiser is one of the most important parts of an electronic cigarette. Coils are responsible for heating the e-liquid and turning it into a vapour to be inhaled. A vape coil is made up of a wire coil or meshed coil and wicking material.
The wicking material is most commonly constructed from cotton, which absorbs the vape juice in your vape pod or tank. When the battery is powered, it heats the coil to vapourise the e-liquid turning it into a vapour to be inhaled.
Vape coils are available in a range of resistances which is a measurement of electrical resistance of the coil being used. Resistance is measured in ‘Ohms’ (Ω). When using entry-level vape starter kits most common coil options are 0.6ohm, 0.8ohm, 1.0ohm and 1.2ohm.
The 0.6ohm and 0.8ohm coil options will provide denser clouds with a restricted direct-to-lung (RDTL) inhale. The 1.0ohm and 1.2ohm coil options are best suited for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping with a cigarette-like inhale.
Vape coils will need to be replaced regularly to ensure a pleasurable vaping experience with crystal clear flavour from your e-liquid.
E-liquid or Vape Juice
E-liquid, also known as vape juice or e-juice, contains ingredients like PG, VG, flavourings, and nicotine (if desired). Each ingredient plays an important role in your vaping experience.
Read our E-Liquid Guide to VG and PG for more information.
What are the advantages of making the switch to rechargeable e-cigarette devices?
Rechargeable vapes offer several advantages compared to disposable vapes, making them a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly option for many users. Here are some of the key advantages of rechargeable vapes:
Quality rechargeable vape devices are durable and made from higher quality materials, built to last. With proper care and maintenance, a lithium-ion vape battery can last anywhere from 6-12 months. Disposable vapes have a limited lifespan.
More Cost Effective
While the initial cost of a rechargeable vape kit may be slightly higher than a disposable device, over time, rechargeable vapes are more cost-effective. You only need to purchase the device once. The only additional costs when purchasing a new vape kit are replacing atomizer coils and topping up vape juice. Much cheaper than replacing the entire device after every 600 puffs when using disposable vapes.
Refillable vape devices offer a cheaper vaping solution in the long run, much cheaper than buying multiple disposable vapes.
Rechargeable vape devices feature larger and more powerful batteries than disposable vapes. This means you can use them for longer periods between charges, making them more convenient for daily use.
Rechargeable vape devices will inform you of the status of your battery giving you ample time before your vape kit needs recharging. Disposable vapes will run out of power with no notice.
Inhale to Vape
Many rechargeable vapes like pod vape kits feature inhale-activation, which means by puffing on the mouthpiece will automatically activate the kit and produce vapour.
If you have been using disposable vapes, look for a vape kit with auto-draw technology to mimic the inhale from disposable vapes.
Rechargeable vape kits offer ways to customise your vape to suit your specific needs. Adjustable wattage allows you to tailor the power output of the device to switch between a warmer or cooler inhale.
Adjustable airflow allows you to alter the texture and temperature of the vape to suit your preference.
Rechargeable vapes provide more consistent performance over time compared to disposable vapes, which may lose flavour or power as they are used.
Many rechargeable vape devices offer a variety of coil options, allowing you to choose between different resistance levels and coil materials. This can affect vapour production and flavour, giving you more control over your vaping experience.
Rechargeable vapes can be used for different vaping styles. These styles include mouth-to-lung or restricted-direct-to-lung. The specific style depends on the device and coil. This versatility can cater to different user preferences.
Better for the Environment
Disposable vapes contribute to electronic waste, as they are discarded after a single use. Rechargeable vapes create less waste as you only need to replace the e-liquid or cartridges and recharge the battery. This is a more eco-friendly choice.
When levelling up from disposable vapes to refillable and rechargeable devices you can choose from a variety of e-liquids, flavours, and nicotine strengths, tailoring your vaping experience to your preferences. Disposable vapes usually offer limited flavour options.
While disposable vapes are mostly available in 20mg nicotine strengths, the highest strength legally allowed in the UK. When making the switch to bottles of vape juice you have so much more choice to find the strength to suit your specific needs.
Most disposable vapes feature overly sweet fruity flavours mostly with the addition of ice. When making the switch to bottles of e-liquid the flavour options are endless. Find a flavour you truly love.
At Tablites, we offer multi-buy vape deals on all our e-liquids so mix and match flavours in search of your new favourite.
What are the Best Vape Kits to choose This Stoptober?
Pod System vape kits are the best alternatives to disposable vapes. Mouth to Lung (MTL) refillable and rechargeable pod kits are designed to emulate a real smoking sensation.
These devices feature 2ml capacity vape pods that are compatible with 10ml bottles of nic salt e-liquid to closely replicate the draw from a 600 puff disposable vape.
Due to the reusable nature of refillable and rechargeable vape kits, they work out much cheaper, whilst providing a more satisfying vaping experience when compared to disposables.
Pod vape kits feature a rechargeable battery that can be charged with the cable supplied with the kit. Many vape pod kits have a Type-C USB port for fast charging. When your battery is low, you can quickly charge it again.
Tablites offers budget-friendly vaping options that are not only environmentally conscious compared to disposable alternatives but also come at an affordable price point. You can easily find an open pod vape compatible with salt nicotine-based e-liquids for as low as £10.
