Best Disposable Vapes

Disposable vape devices are ideal for beginners. We've reviewed all types to determine what are the best disposable vapes 2022.

Best Disposable Vape Intro

Disposable vapes have quickly become the most popular style of e-cigarette in 2022. Even though they have been around for over a decade, it’s only recently that technology has really pushed their performance to another level.

Current disposable vapes are significantly more satisfying than those released just a couple of years ago. In fact, disposable vapes in 2022 have larger batteries, better coils, and can put out more power and vapor – even compared to something like the Puff Bar disposable vape from 2020.

Disposable vape pens still function in the same way, which is to be used until the pre-filled vape juice depletes or the battery dies. Most are draw-activated (some may also have a button) – so they are the simplest forms of vapes, just remove the packaging and start vaping. Then when the battery life is depleted, dispose of them in the nearest recycled waste for electronics.

There are so many choices when it comes to finding the best disposable vape pen. So we compiled this list by testing and reviewing as many as possible to help you find that perfect disposable vape pen. 

How we tested

Performance
We take into consideration how responsive the auto-draw switch is, along with the flavor and vapor production from the coils.
Design & Build Quality
Using several different vape pens within a range gives us the chance to compare build quality. Along with comparing materials used between brands.

Our Pick
1. Flum Float
5.0

A unique bottle shape design, that might not appeal to everyone. The Flum Float really shines with performance and some of the best flavors we've tried in disposables.

BUY NOW

Flum Float disposable vapes have a unique design. This colorful and eye-catching disposable integrates a 1100mAh battery and is filled with 8ml of 5% nicotine salt vape juice. This means the Flum Float can deliver up to 3000+ puffs. It’s available in 14 amazing flavor and color combinations. There’s also a Flum Float Black Edition with extra flavors for those with a dark side.

Why We Picked It: While we were not all fans of the design of the Flum float, there’s no denying it’s unique. The Black edition is also a little less feminine. One thing we did love about the design is the mouthpiece which makes it excellent for MTL vaping. When it comes to the key features of a disposable, they really knock it out of the park. They have a great juice and battery capacity and delivered close to 3000 puffs. More impressively we really loved most of the flavors, they are super punchy, unique and some of the best we’ve tried.

The ElfBar BC5000 is the longest-lasting out of all these disposable vapes even though it only contains a 650mAh battery – and that’s because even though it’s disposable, it’s also rechargeable via USB Type C. It has a gigantic 13ml pre-filled juice capacity and can deliver a whopping 5000 puffs (although you won’t achieve this on a single charge). It has a stylish flask design, comes in some amazing flavors, and is one of the best disposable vape pens for longevity.

Why We Picked It: All of us liked that Elf has a vast range of flavors, so it was easy to find several that we enjoyed using daily. The fact that the BC5000 can deliver 5000 puffs but maintained a small footprint, thanks to being rechargeable is a major benefit. It delivers where it counts on performance, and has a smooth draw.

Pros & Cons

  • Delivers 5000 puffs

Runner Up
3. Vaporlax Mesh

An upgraded Vaporlax disposable with mesh coils that can deliver impressive puff count in a compact package. Same excellent Vaporlax flavor range.

BUY NOW

The Vaporlax Mesh disposable vape pen is an updated version that comes with the same 6.5ml salt juice but now can deliver 3000 puffs (double the previous 1500 puffs). Perhaps more impressive is the super-smooth adjustable airflow and the vast amount of flavor options currently available – 25. They range from fruits, menthol, desserts, and everything in between with either a 50MG or 25MG nicotine level – all deliver a great vape experience.

Why We Picked It: Just like Vaporlax’s Sirius range, these come in a bundle of flavor options. The Vaporlax Mesh disposable delivers excellent performance from its mesh coils with a smooth draw. They fall a little short of the advertised 3000+ puffs, but it’s still very impressive longevity for a compact mesh coil disposable. We love that they have the option of 2% or 5% nicotine strengths making them more versatile.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Great capacity for the size

An impressive beast of a disposable. It delivers a super smooth draw with adjustable airflow and a huge 3000 puff count. Also has some excellent and unique flavors.

Use Code: VIBE20
BUY NOW

The Cube is a beast of a disposable vape pen, not just because of its size. The Cube packs an enormous 11ml of pre-filled juice and can deliver 3000 puffs per pen! The Cube also includes an adjustable airflow switch and has a fantastic range of flavors. The Cube uses 50mg nic salts and also comes in a nicotine-free version called Cube Zero.

Why We Picked It: While the Cube is on the large side, we actually really loved its boxy form. The build quality is also excellent, with the matte finish helping with grip. While the adjustable airflow doesn’t make a huge difference, it does work and is a nice added extra. The Cube range really shines with its flavor range, we enjoyed most we tried with Strawnana (Banana Strawberry), Tropic, and Nirvana being our favorites.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Great build quality
  • 11ml of vape juice
  • Delivers 3000 puffs

5. Sirius 2200

Use Code: VIBE20

The Sirius 2200 by Vaporlax comes in over 20 different flavors, and each one has a whopping 10ml of vape juice. Combined with a 1500mAh battery, the Sirius 2200 can deliver 2200 hits (as the name suggests) which is mightily impressive. The Sirius comes with 50mg salt nicotine vape juice and has some of the most delicious fruit flavors on offer.

Why We Picked It: The Sirius range impressed us all right out of the gate with its performance. There are a few hit-and-miss flavors, but with such a vast range of options, you can’t really go wrong. We particularly loved the Lush Ice and Hawaiian Mix.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Adjustable airflow works well
  • MTL and restricted DTL draw
  • 10ml of vape juice

6. Draco
4.0

A very unique looking high-capacity disposable. It features a mesh coil, adjustable airflow, a rechargeable battery, and an excellent mouthpiece. 12 flavor options.

Use Code: VIBE20
BUY NOW

Draco disposables vapes are some of the most eye-catching vape pens from all the disposable vape brands on this list. It is not all about style though, as they come with a rechargeable 1000mAh battery and are prefilled with 16ml of nicotine salt juice – making it good for 6500+ puffs, and one of the longest-lasting disposable vapes. It doesn’t stop there as the Draco also features adjustable airflow, so you can tailor a satisfying MTL draw. If you want to buy disposable vapes that stand out from the crowd but still deliver longevity and flavor, give the Draco a try.

Why We Picked It: The aesthetics of the Draco can be a little subjective, and while we prefer our disposables to look a little more subtle, there’s no denying they offer a lot. The performance is great from the Mesh coils and adjustable airflow. We also absolutely love the mouthpiece which is ideal for MTL vaping and wish others would follow suit. The 6500 puff count is excellent and we enjoyed the flavors, especially the ‘Luscious’ and ‘Mango Dragonfruit’. They do lean a little heavily on the cooling agent.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Excellent mouthpiece for MTL
  • Rechargeable
  • Good performance from Mesh coils
  • Huge puff count
  • Great flavors

Cons

  • Flashy looks (subjective)
  • A little heavy on the cooling agent

Why Trust Us?

The whole team at Vaping Vibe works collaboratively on all of our Best Vape recommendations.

Each member of our team has experience in reviewing and testing vape products for many years. Along with our expert input and practical experience in using the devices, we conduct market research.

This enables us to provide accurate buyer’s guides and only recommend products we would use ourselves or recommend to close friends and family. Find out more about our review process.

How We Tested

We try our best to test as many Disposable Vape ranges as possible. However, with so many on the market, it is impossible to cover every brand.

Many brands and manufacturers send their ranges directly through to us to test and review. This does not in any way influence our choices, and there is no incentive for us to recommend inferior products. We also try and purchase as many of the remaining ranges as possible.

Our review process is independent, and we look at many key attributes when reviewing products. Each team member will score these attributes, and we then collect all individual scores to reach our combined rating.

We typically use all disposable vape products until they are completely depleted. This gives us real-life use and allows us to assess how they perform against their advertised statistics.

In our opinion, good disposable vapes should deliver on the following:

Performance

We look at how the coil performs with flavor and vapor production. Auto-draw switches are also important regarding user experience with disposables, so we pay attention to how responsive the switches are on the inhale.

Flavor Quality and Options

We try our best to test as many of the vape juice flavors each disposable brand offers. This gives us an overall appreciation of their flavor range. We appreciate that flavors can be subjective, but we try our best to test the like-for-like flavor profiles across brands.

Design & Build Quality

We will look at the materials used and the in-hand feel of each product. If we feel a brand has poor build quality or QC, we will not recommend it.

Even though looks can be subjective, we will assess the overall design of a product. This could include individual design aspects like the mouthpiece and charge port.

Reliability

We do not just test one product from a range; we try and test as many as possible, from start to depletion or failure. Even the top disposable vape brands can have some quality control issues, so it’s only fair that we get a good understanding of a brand’s reliability before we recommend it.

Of course, things can change in manufacturing, and the disposable devices we recommend today may fall short on reliability issues in the future. We strive to keep this page updated every month and adjust ratings accordingly.

Overall Value

Prices can fluctuate even with the best disposable vape brands. However, we try to consider the price when recommending products.

Disposable vapes have come a long way in the last year with vast improvements in coils, battery life, and form factors. If you combine this with some fantastic flavors that are on offer, it’s easy to see the appeal.

Disposable vapes can now deliver a vape experience similar to that of other vape products on the market but in a much more convenient way. They are the perfect gateway for users to get into vaping without having to worry about coil replacements, batteries, nicotine levels, PG/VG ratios.

Ultimately they are simple to use, pocket-friendly, and deliver a great vape experience.

Note:

Disposable vape pens are only suitable for smokers or those that already vape. If you have not vaped before, be warned nicotine is an addictive chemical so use at your own risk.

Pro tips for disposable vapes

Disposable vapes are simple to use as they have no replaceable parts and just consist of a battery and a vape juice reservoir with a built-in coil.

So unlike other vape devices where pro tips may be needed on how to maintain your vape and prevent any issues, there’s not much to cover with disposable vapes.

However, even if you have found the best disposable vape – we still have some tips that you might want to consider:

  • Disposable vape pens are made for one-time use, so you need to remember that they have a small lithium-ion battery inside. Avoid storing them in extreme temperatures or exposing them to high levels of humidity; these conditions can shorten the lifespan and diminish battery life.
  • Dispose of them like other lithium-ion batteries, by taking them to a drop-off location for designated battery recycling.
  • Disposable vape pens are meant for one-time use only, so do not attempt to hack them for a refill or fix any other issues because this can lead to auto-firing and the potential breakage of the pen.
  • While drawing on the vape, be mindful of where your fingers are placed. If they are covering the airflow holes (normally at the bottom), there is a chance that you will damage the device and it may leak.
  • Only ever draw from the mouthpiece – To avoid accidental auto-fire, do not in any circumstance draw from the bottom of the device; it may lead to auto-firing. There are no buttons on a disposable vape pen, so there’s no way to turn it off and on without impacting its safety performance.
  • Dispose of your disposable e-cig once the flavor drops off, even if there is more battery life. Push it too far, and you might get a foul taste or burnt hit.
  • Don’t worry about counting puffs! The puff estimation of these devices was made by automatic puff machines for optimized draw durations. In general, the numbers are accurate enough but don’t waste your time counting how many puffs are delivered by each of the disposable vape devices.

So now that we’ve covered some of the best disposable e-cigs and vape pens on the market and tips to keep them safe and running. There should be no reason you can’t enjoy that nicotine hit in the simplest of vape devices.

Disposable vape pens are convenient and easy to use! They can fit in your pocket, they’re small and compact, they don’t require recharging, and there’s no learning curve. However, as with any electronic device powered by batteries, there will always be some safety concerns; caution should always be practiced when vaping with disposable devices.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best disposable vape flavor?

The flavor is very subjective, and it’s really about what tastes good to you. We have tried to include disposable vapes that include a wide variety of flavors.

Each brand has its unique interpretation of a disposable vape flavor – some offer more unique flavors. In contrast, others have more traditional flavor options.

Which disposable vape brand lasts the longest?

Many companies produce a long-lasting disposable vape. The brands we have reviewed above are reputable brands that offer the best disposable vapes that last longer than average with a unique vaping experience.

The best way to determine whether a disposable vape has longevity is by examining the e-Liquid capacity and battery capacity numbers. Many disposable vapes use similar coil resistances and internal hardware, so the battery capacity and pre-filled e-Liquid volume are the best indicators. We decided to do a little research to determine who delivers the highest-quality product with the best longevity. You can check out our article on How Long Do Disposable Vapes Last?

Is it better to get a disposable vape?

It depends on your use case. Most disposable vapes are affordable and an excellent entry point into vaping. They do not require any knowledge of coil resistance, battery amperes, etc, so they are ideal for beginners. Even experienced vapers find disposable vapes can be great to have around for times when they don’t want to carry spare vape juice or batteries.

However, if you are vaping long-term, it is probably best to invest in a vape pen, pod vape, or vape mod. It will be more cost-effective to use replaceable coils and rechargeable batteries. It will also give you more flexibility on the vape juice you use, and be far more environmentally friendly than having to dispose of disposable vape batteries.

Do disposable vapes hit harder?

A lot of the newer disposable vapes and many on this list use Mesh coils which is great for delivery of flavor. While you can find some that hit hard, we often find due to the lack of power adjustment, adjustable airflow, and the use of varying strengths of nicotine salts (compared to freebase nicotine) both the throat hit and power delivery will be lacking compared to pod vapes or vape pens. However, as more and more vape manufacturers are focusing on the disposable vape market, we will no doubt see even more advances soon.

Why are disposable vapes so flavorful?

A significant advantage of a disposable vape is that they are a contained device, and only for one-time use. This allows the vape manufacturer to add extra sweetener to really make the flavor pop, without having to worry about it being detrimental to the coil’s longevity. It’s a major contributing factor to the increasing popularity of disposable vapes. While the same intense flavor can be replicated in other style vapes, it may require more frequent changing of coils.

Why do disposable vapes make me feel sick?

Most disposable vapes use high-strength salt nicotine at 5% (50mg). This is great for nicotine delivery and sufficing cravings without a harsh throat hit, but because of this can easily lead to you over vaping and taking in too much nicotine. Also, the flavors of disposable vapes can be so moreish that it’s easy to vape too much without noticing. Another factor could be the ingredients used in the vape juice, as previously mentioned they tend to contain more sweeteners than other vapes which could lead to nausea for some people.

If you find that you often feel sick from using disposable vape pens, lower your intake, switch flavors, or even better look for disposables with a lower nicotine strength. A lot of manufacturers also offer the same flavors in a 2% (20mg) strength.

What juice do disposables use?

Each different brand of disposables will use its own vape juice. While you may find there is some crossover with brands using similar flavors like watermelon ice, peach ice, banana ice, etc. – they may taste quite different. You may find that some of the larger brands of disposable will also sell the flavors they use separately to be used in refillable vape devices.

What vape hits most like a disposable?

You can easily replicate the hit of a disposable vape with most vape pens or pod vapes. It will be much easier with a device that has adjustable power, adjustable airflow, and utilizes mesh coils. Of course, another determining factor will be the vape juice you are using. We’d suggest taking a look at our Best Pod Vapes page for some great options.

Do disposable vape pens have warnings on the packaging?

Yes, disposable vapes require all the same safety warnings as any product containing nicotine. The packaging should have a ‘warning this product contains nicotine, which is a highly addictive substance.’ The packaging should also state the strength of nicotine contained within the disposable, this will either be as a percentage or mg/ml.

Other warnings will be on the packaging to keep away from children/minors, to avoid swallowing, and that they are not recommended for pregnant women. Along with any required safety warnings for your country.

Are disposable vapes harmful?

As with any type of vape product, disposable vape pens are a far safer alternative to smoking. They do not contain any carcinogens or other harmful chemicals like cigarettes do. However, that doesn’t mean they are safer than if you didn’t vape at all, just that they are a safer alternative to smoking.

Disposable vapes contain Nicotine which is not harmful but can be addictive. If you are not using disposables as a smoking alternative or to suffice nicotine cravings, then it’s best to use a nicotine-free disposable. Disposable vape pens also contain flavorings in their e-liquid, which could potentially cause reactions in some people. It’s worth noting that we are still in the infancy of research on the long-term effects of vaping.

How can I make my disposable vape last longer?

Disposable vape pens come with a set amount of vape juice in them, along with a set battery capacity. There are some disposables that feature a rechargeable battery like the Elf Bar 5000. However, this is just to minimize the size of the device it won’t make it last longer as once the juice is depleted there is no way to refill it. So essentially you can’t make a disposable vape last longer. If you find it is depleting too soon for you, look for a disposable vape with a higher juice capacity, or alternatively, there are some excellent refillable pod vapes that are most cost-effective and can even deliver better performance.
