​Best Disposable Vape Kits of 2021

15th Jul 2021

Variety of Disposable Vapes Including the Geek Bar, MBAR and Elf Bar

As the most recent report from Public Health England suggests, ‘using a vaping product is the most popular aid used by people trying to quit smoking. While a 2020 statistic highlights that 15.5% are using Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT) over the counter, prescription (2.7%) and varenicline (4.4%), it’s often the technical knowledge required of vaping compared to the simplicity of smoking that proves the stumbling block. If you like the idea of vaping to stop smoking but require a convenient device that’s easy to use to help you make the switch, there is a product that ticks all the boxes. Disposable vapes do just that, so we take a look at why they’re proving so popular with vapers of all levels.

What is a Disposable Vape?

A disposable vape is a simple throw away device that requires no management, charging or set up. Fully charged as soon as you open the packet, you can inhale the e-liquid stored inside the kit. In most cases, they contain nic salts, which gets into the bloodstream quicker than traditional freebase nicotine, as well as offering a smoother intake and a stronger throat hit.

Disposable kits are designed using the mouth-to-lunch technique favoured with ex-smokers, due to its similarity to the sensation of smoking cigarettes. As the most convenient and simple option for vapers, especially those new to the industry, it’s natural they offer the same familiarity as smoking would. When you want to venture further into vaping and get more technical, most would pick up a pod vape or even more advanced vape mod to adjust wattage, voltage or temperature.

Can Any Vaper Use a Disposable Vape Kit?

Technically any vaper can use a disposable, whether at novice level or a cloud chasing pro. This is because a disposable kit is that easy to use! Who doesn’t want convenience when they vape? For vapers new to the scene, it removes all complications or confusion. Disposable vapes are often low wattage, mouth to lung auto-inhale devices. If you take away the 70+ toxins that can lead to serious illness with cigarettes, you are left with a stylish disposable. They’re high in nicotine content so they tick the box for heavy smokers especially.

As we stated earlier, vaping is the most popular aid to quit smoking but it could be the sheer weight of technical terms and settings on advanced devices which prove a stumbling block for beginners looking to switch from smoking. A disposable vape takes away all doubts and leaves you with a compact device that’s similar in size to a cigarette, contains roughly the same amount of nicotine as a heavy smoker would expect daily and looks much more stylish with a wide range of flavours. Any vaper could use it because it’s so easy but most experienced vapers like to tinker with settings and save money in the long run by topping up a vape tank themselves. Therefore, we would advise disposable vape kits as the ideal solution, at least initially.

How Many Puffs Are in a Disposable?

While you will no doubt be aware disposables do not last forever, the number of puffs ranges depending on the amount of e-liquid and battery life of the disposable vape kit. While a cigarette on average consists of 10-12 puffs roughly, an e-cigarette can provide anywhere from 300 puffs up to more than a thousand. However, the more you can get the bigger the battery, which will slowly lose its consistency. Therefore, it’s ideal if you can find a disposable vape that offers around 600 puffs to have the same great taste throughout the day. Because you’ll likely be vaping MTL at a higher concentration of nicotine via the nic salts extraction process, this means you’ll probably not need to vape as often. They make a great option for those looking to quit smoking and as a useful backup to your primary device for regular vapers who need less fuss.

Disposable Vape Advantages

  • Ideal tester for new vapers - cheaper than paying for a vape mod, needing to buy all the extras such as coils and e-liquids is bypassed with a disposable
  • Less hassle - vape it till it's empty or loses flavour, dispose of it safely and pick up a new one
  • Gives you more time to get used to vaping as it reduces the chances of getting confused by all the vaping terms or vape using the wrong settings, give up and relapse with a cigarette
  • Compact size and no setup creates the perfect device for social gatherings, nights out or on lunch breaks at work when you’re in a rush
  • Tight draw similar to a cigarette but no inhalation of tar which forms from combustible smoke or tobacco which kills millions annually
  • Once vaping feels familiar, you can still find use with a disposable as a backup or even as a low wattage primary device because of its versatility, intense flavours and high nicotine strength
  • Consistency is key with vaping and a disposable provides that with a fixed wattage and same flavour time after time
  • Doesn’t need to be charged before leaving the house or while out and about, it should last all day providing you are not a chain vaper. Nic salts at 20mg nicotine level should help to prevent this

Disposable Vape Disadvantages

  • Not good for the environment to constantly throw these small lithium-ion battery disposables in the bin but neither is smoking for that matter to the health of billions worldwide. As a starter device, they will help smokers transition quicker so it depends on what matters most to you. Always dispose of responsibly by putting into a correct recycling bin specifically for batteries
  • If you only like disposable vape kits and don’t eventually switch to vape pods or mods, it can cost you more long-term
  • Wattage can not be adjusted and they’re usually auto-inhale so that’s something to consider but more of a subjective view

Best Disposable Vape Kits of 2021 So Far

GeekVape Geek Bar in Grey  

1) GeekVape Geek Bar

Top of our list is the fantastic flavoursome disposables from GeekVape - the 20mg Geek Bars! These are simplicity personified and yet the style isn’t compromised due to the colourful outer shell in a range of flavours - with 20 different options to pick from, including Mango Ice, Sweet Strawberry and traditional choices like Tobacco and Menthol.

With the Geek Bars, you can get up to 575 puffs which you can auto-inhale with a tight MTL draw. Because of the smooth inhalation method from the high strength nicotine salts (2%), you will not have to vape as often to get the fix you require, which is ideal if you’re transitioning as a heavy smoker, hoping to join a large community of vapers looking to remove toxins like tar building in their immune system, causing potentially fatal illnesses.

These compact AIO pod vape devices with 500mAh battery power are awesome in all situations. Whether you’re on a short work break, having a night out with friends or simply needing something discreet, GeekVape provides the number one solution for a lightweight disposable vape that can last all day.

SMOK MBAR in Black  


As well as some fantastic pod vape options where the inhalation is discreet and the flavour intense, SMOK has branched out to provide an even easier option for vapers with disposables. The latest technology available to beginners and everyday vapers is the SMOK MBAR, which takes convenience to another level. Available in five different flavours such as Strawberry Ice and Blue Raspberry, you can inhale smooth 20mg nic salt disposables with delicious flavours and throw them away when you’re done.

If you don’t vape excessively, they should last a full day when you combine the 280mAh battery with roughly 300 puffs. It gives vapers 1.3ml of e-liquid per disposable and like with the majority of disposables, it’s auto-draw to resemble the action of a cigarette.

Elf Bar in Orange  

3) Elf Bar

If you’re after a disposable e-cigarette with a comfortable ‘duck’ shaped mouthpiece, stylish design and minimal fuss vape, the Elf Bar might be right up your street as an AIO vape kit that you can throw away when done. It offers even more puffs than the number one in our list at 600, 2ml of e-liquid, enjoyable flavour and nice cloud production. Kicking out 2% nic salts, its smooth draw and eclectic options such as Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava and Cotton Candy Ice set this disposable apart from the rest of the ever-growing disposables on the market.

It creates consistently good flavour which is exactly what you want from a disposable. No need to change the e-liquid or coil around, just savour the fun choices available such as Blue Razz Lemonade and Strawberry Ice Cream to keep your palette intrigued and help reduce your craving for nicotine by vaping on some disposable nic salts.

GeekVape Geek Bar Lite in Blue  

4) GeekVape Geek Bar Lite

Similar to the number one pick in our list of the top disposable vape kits, the Geek Bar Lite is just as flavoursome with the same percentage of nic salt (2%). However, the key differences lie with the Lite having a slightly smaller battery at 350mAh and fewer puffs at 400 puffs from 1.8ml e-liquid, which is only 0.2ml below the TPD regulations of 2ml max.

Nevertheless, the device is just as stylish and even more compact for vaping on the go. Considering many vapers carry a disposable vape in their pocket or handbag, size matters for convenience and the popular Geek Bars tick that box!


RipTide RipStick and VOOM Nic Salt Disposable Vape Pods  

Best of the Rest

Outside of All in One (AIO) disposable kits where you can throw the entire device in the bin, the next best thing for easy use and simplicity before needing to purchase your tank, coil or e-liquids is disposable nic salt pods. These are prefilled and super convenient, especially if they’re designed with a magnetic connection (like many are) to simply drop them in and remove them easily. Examples of this include the RipStick pods from RipTide that are available in Menthol, Bright Leaf Tobacco, Mango, Tropical, Berry Crunch and Blue Raspberry at 12/20mg strength per ml with a 1.4ml capacity. Alternatively, VOOM offers just as impressive a nic salt pod with a smooth nic salt intake, utilising a one of a kind coil technology in a device that only weighs 16 grams for a lightweight vape that’s easy to pick up and inhale.

From the outside looking in the vaping industry may seem like you need a scientific degree in Ohm's resistance or the palette of a wine connoisseur but that’s the beauty of vaping and why disposable vape kits are growing in popularity year by year. You can experiment after you’ve gained some experience as a vaper with a techy mod and even venture into building your coils if you’re feeling brave. However, to begin with, a disposable kit is the closest you will get to a cigarette except it’s better for your health as referenced by Public Health England and the NHS with a variety of studies. What better way to sink your teeth into an industry that’s evolving than by getting to know what it’s like with a simple-to-use vape kit in the form of a disposable that requires no work, no knowledge or TLC. Simply pick it up, vape away till it runs out and throw it away.
