5 Tips And Tricks For Buying Disposable Vapes

Vapes are considered better alternatives to tobacco products, which contain thousands of cancer-causing chemicals and compounds. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), electronic smoking devices like vapes are typically less harmful than cigarettes but not completely safe as they contain nicotine and other toxic substances. 

A 2018 survey estimated that there were 41 million vapers worldwide. This figure likely rose to 55 million in 2021. As the e-cigarette market continues to strengthen, more products, including disposable vapes, are released on the market. 

Convenient and easy to use, electronic smoking devices are ideal for first-time users. Consider these tips if you’re planning your initial purchase. 

What are disposable vapes?

Disposable vape units are often sold with a charged battery and pre-filled liquids, such as these Fume flavors, that the machine heats to produce smoke. Unlike their fancier counterparts, a user can’t replace its essential parts such as coils, atomizers, and batteries. 

Using a disposable vape is easy. All you have to do is turn the device on and inhale. When the battery runs out, you can dispose of the unit properly and buy a new one. 

Consider the following tips and tricks if you’re ready for your disposable vape device.    

  1. Check if your Fume disposable vape is authentic 

Fume is one of the more popular vape brands, and they have a wide range of products to choose from, just like the other brands. As a popular smoking device, it’s unsurprising that several counterfeit products are flooding the market. 

An authentic product is crucial for users’ safety and optimal vaping experience. One of the few ways to ensure your device is original is to enter the stock-keeping unit (SKU) code onto the company’s product validation page. If not, you can ask the company for validation through email.

Vaping devices aren’t the only products regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The agency issued warnings to synthetic nicotine manufacturers and retailers early this year.

  1. Do your homework 

It pays to ask vaping aficionados for details about the non-reusable vapes you wish to buy. Some vapes feature buttons to press to start inhaling. On the other hand, some are draw-activated, which works when a user inhales from it. Check which one works better for you. 

Additionally, visit the official sites of the brands. For example, Fume has three main disposable vape classifications: Fume Extra, Fume Infinity, and Fume Ultra. Each type carries different flavors, with Fume Ultra having the most choices at 30, Extra has 27, and Infinity has about 16 flavors. Take time to read through the product’s features and align them with your preferences. 

  1. Consider your usage requirements

Besides their features, non-reusable vapes differ in capacity. Typically, bigger devices last longer. That said, opt for bigger ones if you don’t intend to quit anytime soon or require vapes for longer-term use.  

Fume Infinity may be the best option if you want such a product. This type can last up to 3,500 puffs or up to two weeks for moderate users. On the other hand, Fume Ultra promises about 2,500 puffs, while Fume Extra offers the shortest usage with 1,500 puffs. 

Check the nicotine salt strength and volume of the liquid with the device. Nicotine salts are additives that enhance the juice and its flavor, while the volume content indicates the number of fluids you can use.      

  1. Find out how Fume disposable vape fits your lifestyle

If you’re busy and don’t want to be bothered about maintenance and modifications that often accompany a rechargeable device, choose from any of the three available models to fulfill your needs.  

Fume vapes have sleek and compact designs that you can take on the go. If you’re a social smoker, it may be best to get Fume Extra, which could last a week. This model is also great if you want to test the flavor and feel of vaping and don’t want to commit to electronic cigarettes in the long term. 

  1. Look for special deals 

Based on upfront costs, these devices also provide a cheaper way for vapers who wish to fulfill their requirements. Comparatively, a moderately-priced disposable vape can be had at USD$9.99, while a vape mod or reusable vape costs anywhere from USD$50 to USD$100, excluding upgrades such as special vape cartridges. However, using a disposable vape can cost more than owning the latter in the long run.      

Several retailers have physical and online shops you can check for promotions and discounts, especially for disposable vapes, so keep your eyes peeled for these deals.    


Disposable vapes mimic a smoker’s experience when inhaling from a traditional cigarette or reusable device. While not completely safe from toxic chemicals, they’re considered less harmful than cigarettes—perfect for beginners and would-be quitters.  

Before buying one, consumers are advised to purchase from reliable manufacturers and government-sanctioned products. And with the hundreds of devices available on the market, vapers must consider how the device fits their cravings and lifestyle.
