Disposable vs Rechargeable Vapes: How to Decide Which is Right for You

If you’re thinking of buying a vape for personal use, one of the most important considerations you’ll need to make is whether you want a disposable vape or a rechargeable vape. Both types offer different features and benefits, so depending on your personal needs, one may be a better buy for your hard-earned money than the other. Below are some of the things you should consider when weighing out the choice of whether to go disposable or rechargeable for your vape:

Ease of Use and Convenience

Reaching into your pocket for a puff of your favourite vape flavour should never be complicated or frustrating. Ideally, you should be able to simpy pull it out, press the button and inhale, easy peasy. Luckily, the vapes sold at Vape Homie are all pretty simple and straightforward, no hassle, no fuss. In terms of ease of use, however, disposable vapes tend to be a lot easier and hassle-free. Disposable vapes such as the HQD Cuvie (1200 puffs) often come pre-filled in over a dozen different tasty flavours like Apple Peach and Mango Guava, so there’s no need to fiddle around with vape liquid at all. Moreover, disposable vapes are designed to be highly portable and slim in profile, sort of like a ballpoint pen (a little wider): discreet, sleek, and simple. On the other hand, rechargeable vapes do require a little more of a time investment. You’ll need to familiarise yourself with refilling the vape liquid, recharging the battery, and in many cases replacing the coils after they’ve been used up.

Budget and Ongoing Costs

In terms of cost, both rechargeable and disposable vapes tend to cost a heck of a lot less in the long term when compared to, for example, picking up a packet of durries for a cool $40-$50. Comparing apples to apples, however, there are big cost differences between different vapes. Depending on the brand, quality, and whether the vape is disposable or rechargeable will affect the total price. Disposable vapes are definitely cheaper for short-term usage, since you simply buy the vape and use it until it’s done (the estimated number of puffs are shown on our product listings). No ongoing costs for coils, liquid, etc. Rechargeable vapes often cost more upfront and there are ongoing costs, but the latter is quite reasonable over time. For long-term vaping, rechargeable is the way to go.

Flavour Variety

Your choice of vape flavour is quite important, especially if you plan to puff away on the same flavour for a few thousand puffs or more. Generally, rechargeable vapes give you a lot more leeway in terms of vape liquid flavours as you can typically buy just about any flavour under the sun so long as it’s compatible with your vape model.  On the other hand, disposable vapes nowadays come with a pretty good selection of flavours that may appeal to you, although you may be limited to a dozen or so flavours for a specific vape model.

Environmental Sustainability

Everyone’s buzzing about environmentally-friendly products these days, and for good reason. Vapes are electronic devices that can contribute to the growing e-waste crisis, so if you’re concerned about your environmental impact then you may wish to choose a rechargeable vape as they’re a lot less wasteful than disposable vapes.
