Alternatives To Disposables

Alternatives To Disposables

With disposable vapes being one of the most expensive forms of vaping, many users are asking for the best alternatives to disposables. In this post, we will outline some of the best options available for those looking to ditch disposables for a more permanent and cheaper alternative with a similar vaping experience.

Vaping Devices

There are a number of vaping devices to choose from, although the main thing you’ll be looking for is a mouth-to-lung (MTL) device. This refers to the way you inhale on the device, first taking an inhale of vapour into your mouth before double inhaling down into your lungs, just as you do with disposables.

Direct-to-lung (DTL) devices are much more powerful and produce huge clouds of vapour. This is not the best option if you’re looking for a similar vaping experience to disposables.

We have found that pod-system devices are the best option when switching from disposables. They are user friendly, small and compact, and work great with nicotine salt e-liquids (which is what is found in disposables).

These are our top 3 selling pod kits online and in store.


The OXVA Xlim Pod Kit has been designed to deliver X-treme flavour! The Xlim is a small pod system device, equipped with a 900mAh battery. The upgraded V2 replacement pods are now highly leak-resistant and refill from the side.

The Xlim features a small display unlike other devices in the same category. This will give you a more accurate battery level indicator and allow you to adjust your settings up to 25W of power, giving you more control. On the side of the device, there is airflow control, helping you personalise the draw to your liking.

XROS 3 Pod Kit

The XROS 3 is a small pod-system device which offers a MTL vaping experience. The replacement pods hold 2ml of e-liquid which sit on top of the battery which has a capacity of 1000mAh.

With the upgraded water drop air inlet, you can customise your vaping style from MTL to a loose MTL giving you more control. The 0.6ohm pods heat up quicker and consistently supports great flavour!

Wide Wick Pod Kit

The Wide Wick is the first device to adopt the WideWicktm technology. The intention is for the power to be distributed evenly around the wicking material found within the coil. This leaves you with a vape which is less likely to get spit back (where e-liquid spits out the top) and prevents dry-hits.

Built-in is an 800mAh battery which should last the average user between half a day to a day depending on use. However, the USB-C port allows for fast charging.

The refillable pods connects onto the device with magnets. A convenient top-filling design allows you to refill without having to take the pod off of the battery.

Nic Salt E-Liquids

Once you’ve chosen the right device for you, the next step is picking out some e-liquids to go with it. Most users will use nicotine salt e-liquids as these are the same as what is used in disposables. Finding the right flavour can be hard, therefore it is best to pick 3 flavours to try and see which ones you get on with.

Disposables often come in 20mg of nicotine. 20mg is available in our ranges of liquids although you can also find 10mg in these ranges if you’re looking to cut down on your nicotine intake.
