Disposables Vs Mods

Disposables vs mods? There are many different types of vape devices available, and if you are new to vaping it can be challenging to know what device will best suit your needs. Or perhaps you’ve always bought disposables or mods and are uncertain about trying other devices, sticking to what you know rather than what might be best for your circumstances. So, in today’s blog, we look at disposables vs mods and their pros and cons to determine the correct device for you. 


Disposable vape pens are non-rechargeable devices that come ready-filled with e-liquid and are designed to be thrown away when the vape juice inside them is gone. 

One main benefit of Disposables is that they are cheaper to buy than a mod device, making them an attractive option. (Although, over the long run, mods are less expensive).

Another popular benefit is that disposables don’t require any maintenance; they don’t have coils or tanks to change, they don’t need charging, and they don’t need refilling. This makes them ideal for those who want their vaping to be cheap, quick and hassle-free. 

Another benefit of disposables is that they are generally smaller than mods, making them easier to carry around in your pocket or handbag. 

The most significant disadvantage of disposables is the fact that they are, well, disposable. Disposable vape pens have a massive negative environmental impact. Vape pens designed for single use make up a considerable volume of waste sent to landfills. Some pens can also leak and release metals, battery acid and nicotine into the environment. This waste can contaminate water and animal habitats, making them unsafe for their inhabitants. Plastic pens can take up to 1000 years to decompose, meaning that millions of disposable vape pens will pollute the earth for generations to come. Read more about the effect of disposable vape pens on the environment here.

Mods are a more advanced type of vape device that allows users to personalise their vaping experience, which many people find makes it more enjoyable. Mods enable users to change tanks, alter airflow, change the flavour, decide whether to use shortfills, premixed e-liquid or mix their own, add or remove nicotine, and so much more. 

Mods generally have much more power than disposables, so they can produce more vapour, which many users enjoy. 

Mods are also much better for the environment than disposables, as they can be recharged and used repeatedly instead of thrown away. 

Mods are larger than disposables, so they are more challenging to carry in your pocket or handbag and are less discreet when used.

A disadvantage of mods is that they are far more expensive to buy initially than disposables; however, in the long term, they are more cost-effective, so if you can afford to do so, mods are a better long-term solution than disposables.
