Here's everything you need to know:

What is a Disposable Vape? 

A disposable vape is a portable, discreet, and lightweight device available in a variety of flavors. Whether it's banana, strawberry, cucumber, or mint—there's sure to be a disposable vape that aligns with your taste buds. 

These vapes are pre-charged and pre-filled with your flavor of choice. All you need to do is puff to activate and start enjoying. Unlike rechargeable vapes, you never need to plug it in when the battery runs low, refill it with flavor on your own, or learn about the required regular maintenance. It's designed for simple, straightforward usage and is ready to be enjoyed when you buy it.

What is a Rechargeable Disposable Vape?

A rechargeable disposable vape has a higher predetermined set of puffs and is designed to be thrown away once the juice runs out. These vapes must be charged to last for the number of guaranteed puffs, making them an excellent, longer-lasting disposable option.

How Does a Disposable Vape Work?

Every disposable vape has three components: Battery, heating elements, and liquid. Once you take a puff to activate, a light turns on to indicate the device is on. What makes IGNITE disposable vapes different from the rest is that it's designed with auto-draw technology to deliver the smoothest possible vape experience.

All disposable vapes are made with a predetermined number of puffs. Some options have anywhere from up to 300 to 6,000 puffs guaranteed. The battery inside of the disposable vape is designed to die when the flavor runs out. However, at IGNITE, we also have rechargeable disposable vapes with higher puff counts. As noted, these vapes need to be recharged to last for the total number of guaranteed puffs. 

As for traditional disposable vapes,once the battery is dead or you run out of flavor,theymust be disposed of properly at a local retailer with a vape recycling or battery disposal program.

Disposable Vapes vs. Regular Vapes

When weighing the advantages and disadvantages of disposable vapes vs. regular vapes, consider your lifestyle and the type of vaping experience you desire. Everyone is different. What works for you might not work for someone else.

Here are some of the key differences to consider:

Variety of Flavors to Choose From

When you buy a rechargeable vape, you must invest in the flavor to refill it with. Which means you need to commit to one taste for a while. 

Once the flavor runs out with disposable vapes, you can pick up your go-to or switch it up with something new—the choice is yours.

No Required Maintenance 

Disposable vapes and rechargeable disposable vapes are as simple asvapes get. There's no required maintenance or upkeep. You don't need to worry about refilling the flavor, replacing the coils, orreplacingthe battery.


Disposable vapes are relatively low-cost compared to regular vapes. The pricing will vary depending on the brand, battery size, how many puffs, and the nicotine quality. If you buy anon-disposable rechargeable vape, you must invest in the parts to maintain a high-quality vaping experience. If you’re looking for the best of both worlds without the hassle of the upkeep, we recommend ourV50 orV60.


If you want to start vaping but aren't sure where to start, disposable vapes are your best bet. They are easy to use and don't require a hefty upfront investment. The process is as straightforward as it gets.

With rechargeable vapes, you'll need to familiarize yourself with the steps necessary for regular maintenance and the adjustment settings. It’smore complicated andtakes time and a little bit of patience tonail downthe perfect wattage, temperature,flavor, and refill routine. Can you commit to that?

Portable and Discreet

Disposable vapes are lightweight, portable, and discreet. They can easily fit in your pocket and keep you satisfied for days. You can't beat the level of convenience. 

Different Nicotine Strengths 

The nicotine strength will vary depending on the brand and the number of puffs per disposable. The range is typically around 1% to 5%. 

5% nicotine is around 50mg, which is perfect for a cigarette-style experience. If you're looking for the vape experience without nicotine, you'll find that some disposable vapes contain zero nicotine. 

When looking at the different nicotine strengths, you'll also notice a few different types of nicotine. 

  • Synthetic Nicotine
  • Tobacco Derived Nicotine

Synthetic nicotine is a lab-made nicotine with a similar chemical composition to traditional nicotine. It's considered more pure and a great alternative to tobacco-derived nicotine.

Tobacco-derived nicotine comes from the tobacco plant. If you like cigarettes but want to switch to vaping, tobacco-derived nicotine will provide the closest nic experience. 

There's no right or wrong choice between the two options. Everything depends on your preferences and lifestyle. You can't go wrong with either. 

Disposable Vape Flavors

Getting to choose between the different flavors is part of the experience. When you're investing in a disposable vape, you can choose from a wide variety of flavors. Once the flavor runs out, dispose of it properly and grab a new one. At IGNITE, we have spent countless years developing potent, mouth-watering flavors. Some of our most popular options include:Puff Ignite Vape Flavors

Choosing the Right Disposable Vape

We're not going to beat around the bush… There are a ton ofdifferent types of disposable vapes to choose from. When looking for a disposable vape to add to your daily routine, you'll want to consider:

How Often You Vape

Most disposable vapes have a pre-set number of puffs. For example, a disposable vape with 3,500 puffs is equivalent to around five packs of cigarettes. If you vape a lot, you may want to go with 3,500 - 6,000 puffs so it lasts longer. If you only tend to puff on the weekends or during social occasions, 300 - 2,500 puffs is probably a better fit. 

If you’re looking for a vape with more puffs that will last longer, consider one of our rechargeable disposable vapes. These vapes can be recharged to keep your vaping experience alive. Options like ourV50 andV60 are the best of both worlds.

The Flavor 

There are a variety of vape flavors to choose from, whether you're looking for something minty and refreshing or sweet and flavorful. When searching for a disposable vape, you'll want to consider what aligns with your taste buds and which flavor you enjoy the most. 

Nicotine Type

Not interested in adding nicotine to your lifestyle? Stick to synthetic nicotine. Looking for an accurate cigarette-style experience with all the benefits of a disposable? Go with tobacco-derived nicotine.

Battery Life 

The longer the battery, the longer the experience will last. Most high-quality disposable vapes are paired with a battery that aligns with the number of puffs. This ensures the battery runs out when the flavor is done.
