If you’re a smoker and have finally made the decision to make the jump to vaping, you couldn’t have picked a better time to do so. Disposable vapes have become the most popular devices in the vaping industry over the past couple of years – and thanks to that popularity, they’re available just about everywhere. Disposable vapes are perfect for beginners because they’re incredibly easy to use; all that you need to do is remove the device from the package and puff away. There’s absolutely no setup required, and when a disposable vape runs out of e-liquid, you’ll simply discard it and begin using another device.

Before you can start using a disposable vape, though, you need to actually buy the device – and that can be a difficult task for first-time vapers because the number of disposable vapes on the market has grown so rapidly. It’s hard to choose just one out of the many devices that are available.

In this article, we’re going to cut through the confusion and walk you through buying your first disposable vape by breaking the process down into a few relatively simple decisions. Let’s dive in!

Find a Reliable Local or Online Vape Shop

The first thing that you’ll need to decide when you shop for your first disposable vape is whether you want to buy the device locally or online. One of the great things about buying a disposable vape is that you’re not making a huge commitment. You’re buying an inexpensive device that’ll last a few days, and you’ll replace it when it runs out of e-liquid. If you don’t love your first device, you can just buy a different one the next time. On the other hand, the experience that you have with your first vaping device may have a strong influence on whether you ultimately decide to continue with vaping at all – so it should be a device that you enjoy using.

If you buy your first disposable vape from a local vape shop, you’ll have the benefit of instant gratification. You can walk into the shop and walk out with your first vape, and there’s no need to wait for shipping. Instant gratification, however, has a price; local vape shops almost always charge significantly more than online sellers.

Buying disposable vapes from an online seller like Mi-Pod, on the other hand, means that you’ll enjoy a much larger selection of devices at much lower prices. When you can choose from dozens of disposable vapes instead of just a small handful of products, you’ll have a much better chance of getting a device you’ll love.

You’ll note that we used the word “reliable” in the heading above. Regardless of whether you buy your first disposable vape locally or online, it’s extremely important to know that you’re getting an authentic product. Disposable vapes are some of the most counterfeited vaping products on the market today, and you don’t want to end up with a device that isn’t authentic.


Choose a Design and Form Factor

Before you buy any disposable vape, it’s a good idea to take a look at the device’s physical design and see whether you think it’ll fit your needs from the standpoints of aesthetics, portability and longevity. Some disposable vapes are extremely small and look similar to USB drives or small pens. Other disposable vapes, on the other hand, have much larger and more elaborate designs. You can find disposable vapes with curved pistol-type grips. Others are more boxlike in shape.

When you choose a disposable vape, you should keep in mind that a smaller device is always more portable and discreet. On the other hand, a larger device will have more e-liquid and a longer-lasting battery. Some disposable vapes can actually replace up to a carton of tobacco cigarettes, making disposable e-cigarettes arguably the most affordable vaping devices on the market today.

Choose Your Nicotine Strength

With some brands of disposable vapes, you may have more than one nicotine strength from which to choose. Most disposable vapes are sold in very high nicotine strengths of up to the maximum allowed strength for the region – typically 50 mg/ml in the United States and Canada and 20 mg/ml in the United Kingdom and the European Union. In some cases, though, manufacturers also offer disposable vapes in lower strengths.

Usually, you want to buy disposable vapes in the highest nicotine strength available because that’s what’s closest to the nicotine delivery of a tobacco cigarette on a per-puff basis. That’s usually what you want if you’re trying to switch from smoking to vaping because you don’t want to choose a vaping device that won’t satisfy you and will only leave you craving cigarettes.

Having a lower nicotine strength available is also useful if you’re thinking about buying a larger and more powerful disposable vape. Some disposable e-cigarettes produce very large vapor clouds and may feel overwhelming and unpleasant to use at higher nicotine strengths. In that case, you might be happier if you select the lower strength instead.

Choose Your Flavor

Once you’ve selected the brand and model of disposable vape that looks right for you, the final step is to choose a flavor. Since you’re still a smoker and are trying vaping for the first time, there’s a good chance that you’re thinking about starting with a cigarette-like tobacco or menthol flavor. You may have noticed, though, that there aren’t many disposable vapes on the market that attempt to replicate the flavor of a cigarette. That’s because most long-term vapers ultimately decide that they don’t want to use vapes that taste like cigarettes.

Since there are so many non-tobacco flavors on the market, you should have no trouble finding a disposable vape that suites your taste perfectly. Fruit and menthol, for instance, is a popular flavor profile for those who enjoy a cool sensation in the throat. You can also find disposable vapes that taste like desserts, beverages, popular brands of candy and more. If you don’t love the first disposable vape that you try, you should keep experimenting with different flavors until you find something you love.
