Time to save: Switch from disposables to a Pod Kit

We all love disposables. They taste great and are so easy to use. However, if like many you have started to use disposables every day, you’ll know they aren’t the cheapest way to get your nicotine fix. So why haven’t you explored other options when there are so many on the market. Well, maybe you just don’t know what else the vaping industry has to offer. In this blog I will share with you the other options you have to continue vaping whilst not breaking the bank and still getting the flavoursome and crave fixing hit you have come to love.

What is a disposable?

First, we need to understand what a disposable is and why they cost so much when used as your daily nicotine fix. Disposables such as Elf Bars and Lost Mary’s are ready to use out the box. Disposables work the same way as any other vaping device. They have a battery, coil, and wick around the coil to absorb the liquid stored inside. The only difference is that the battery is pre-charged, and the disposable is pre-filled with liquid before you get your hands on it. The lithium ion battery contained within is one of the biggest factors as to why disposables cost so much, when used regularly. The battery can not be recharged which means every time your disposable runs out and you buy a new one you are buying a whole new battery. This not only increases the cost but also means using disposables has a big environmental impact.

The flavoursome and smooth hit you get from a disposable comes from the liquid stored inside. Every single flavour of TPD regulated disposable uses nicotine salts, commonly referred to as “Nic Salts”, and only store 2ml of liquid. 2ml of liquid! Is that all? No wonder you have to replace them so often. To put it in perspective of how small that amount of liquid is we will compare it with one our own liquids from the TABlites Nic Salt range.

Elf Bar vs TABlites Nic Salt £5.99 £3.99 600 Puffs 3000 Puffs

Wow! That Elf Bar is so expensive for how many puffs you get out of it. You can see how much better value for money it is using the TABlites Nic Salt. They are a fraction of the price, and you get 5x the amount of liquid/puffs. You may have also noticed they’re exactly the same flavour and nicotine strength. There are many more flavours in the TABlites nic salt range that are exactly the same as your favourite disposable flavours, you can check them out here.

I've got my liquid, now what?

Now, liquid is not the only thing you’ll need to replace your disposable, you will also need a device or as they are commonly referred to “Vape”. There are hundreds of vapes on the market and so many are perfect for replacing your disposables. We have found that the best kind of device you can replace your disposables with are Pod Kits and there are so many to choose from.

In my opinion, the best one is the Uwell Caliburn A2. The reason I say this is because this vape is super simple to use as there is no changing of any coils, simply just change the pod when it starts to taste burnt, it is incredibly easy to refill and reaches a full charge within 45 minutes. Not only that, as someone who has tested this device, I can tell you the hit is very similar to what you get with a disposable, I would even say it’s better.

The price Uwell Caliburn A2 with TABlites is just £18.99, that’s under the price of 4 disposables and you also get a free bottle of TABlites Nic Salt further reducing your start up costs. If you currently use 5 or more disposables per week, it’ll only take a few days before you are saving money. Let’s put that all together and see how much you would save over a month if you were using 5 disposables per week.
