Disposable or Rechargeable: Which E-Cig Is for You?

e-cigElectronic cigarettes come in a variety of sizes, shapes, flavors and types but there is one recurring debate that exists throughout: disposable or rechargeable? Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, different things that make each viable to different people, and in spite of how heated the debate may get it really depends on you. The following is a rundown of the major points that are both in favor of and the detractions of each type of electronic cigarette. This way, you can decide for yourself which of the two sounds more like your style.


Probably the biggest benefit of disposables is that they allow the user to experiment with electronic cigarettes without committing to owning a charger, batteries and flavor cartridges. Users can simply pick up a few of the disposables, try out the new, cutting edge way of getting nicotine that is vaping and decide for themselves whether it’s something they’re interested in continuing. If they don’t like it, they use what they’ve purchased and are left with no clutter and if they do like it they can continue to purchase the disposables or decide to investigate other models that will be more inexpensive in the long run.

Another great benefit of disposables is that they’re very compact. They are small enough to really take anywhere with almost no sacrifice when it comes to space or volume. You can put one in your pocket or your purse and simply have it around if you run out of other types of nicotine. You can even use it in the instance that you don’t have any more regular cigarettes and haven’t the opportunity to get more.

Disposable electronic cigarettes are also crazy simple. There’s no on switch, no button to hold while using and you don’t even have to light it. All there is to it is a little suction and you’re golden. It’s definitely the most foolproof method of vaping.

By carrying or having multiple batteries, you can use the vaporizer throughout the day without having to worry about running out of battery. Even if you do run out, you can just plug in a freshly charged battery! This is compounded by the fact that there can always be one battery in the charger, whether you’re at work or at home, meaning that there will always be a fresh battery, whenever you need one. Without down time you can literally vape whenever you want, depending on the regional laws of course.

The second benefit of these units is that it’s very easy to change flavors in the middle of the day. If you’re torn between using a tobacco or a cherry flavor throughout the day, it’s very easy to carry a cartridge for both and change them on the unit whenever you get tired of one flavor. This helps many users to keep things fresh throughout the day and avoid going back to the leaf and fire cigarettes that only come in either burning tobacco or minty, burning tobacco flavors.

Units that are rechargeable are often available in a wider variety of flavors as well which means that it can be more satisfying to use them on the whole and put some distance between the user and traditional cigarettes. By getting used to the variety of flavors, like cherry, vanilla or chocolate, that are different from what can be had with a traditional cigarette, the user is beginning to separate his or her cravings from the ash and smoke cigarettes. Eventually the fire and leaf cigarettes will taste foreign and gross rather than inviting or familiar. Thus, it will be harder to get back into the swing of using traditional cigarettes.

Both disposables and rechargeables have distinct benefits and disadvantages like the ability to try something out without actually committing to having equipment for it or the ability to easily change flavors. Some people like to have several different batteries to carry them through the day while others prefer to change flavors as the day progresses, thereby keeping them further interested in vaping. In the end, it really depends on you and what you expect out of your vaporizer pen on a day to day basis.
