The Best Alternatives To Disposable Vape Kits In 2024

On January 29th 2024, Rishi Sunak announced that he and his government would be banning disposable vapes from sale in England. This decision was made after a review of the consultation period responses which were given after the initial suggestion of these proposals a few months prior. 

The primary driving force behind this ban being enacted was to curb the youth vaping numbers from rising any further than they already alarmingly are sat at and to stop the start of a new generation of nicotine addicts from forming. 

Another leading reason was to reduce the negative impact on the environment which disposable vapes are having. You cannot recycle disposable vapes despite them being made from plastic, as they contain a lithium-ion battery and these can pose a combustion risk when put under pressure in machinery at recycling plants. 

The number of disposable vapes that are being dumped into landfills across the country has shot up from 1.3 million which was reported last year, to a staggering 5 million every single week.

So with a disposable vape ban happening in the not-so-distant future in England, we wanted to show what we can offer here at EDGE Vaping as the best alternative to disposables vapes.

Upgrading to a refillable vape kit is the most natural progression when it comes to finding the best disposable vape alternative. Using refillable and reusable vapes will offer you so much more than what a single-use disposable can. Whilst offering a convenient way to vape, disposables do have their flaws with the lack of refill and recharging capabilities. 

The price of a single disposable vape is around £6 and comes prefilled with the maximum amount of vape juice that is permitted under TPD regulations which is 2ml. This 2ml of e-liquid may only last you for one day of vaping if you're a frequent vaper, meaning that it will need to be replaced daily so that you can continue to vape. 

Consistently using disposables in the long run is not the cheapest way to vape as it will soon add up and make vaping less cost-effective as you could realistically be spending over £40 a week just on disposable vapes.

This is why a refillable and reusable vape kit is the best alternative to disposable vapes. The battery can be recharged as well as giving you the flexibility to refill it with whatever vape juice you want to use. Whether that's Freebase nicotine, nicotine salts or High VG, the choice is yours! 

We discuss below some of the best alternatives for both vape kits and vape juices that you can consider to use and get ahead of the impending disposable vape ban today by making the switch!

EDGE Bar Salts

EDGE Bar Salts is the latest vape juice range that has been added to our already impressive catalogue.

Inspired by the popular disposable vape flavours seen in Elf Bars or SKE Crystal Plus Disposables; this range of nicotine salt e liquid is a great alternative to disposable vapes for many different reasons.

The maximum amount of e liquid which can be included in a disposable vape is 2ml, which adheres to the TPD regulations which were introduced in 2016. And the average cost of a device from one of the leading disposable brands is around £6, meaning you’re paying £6 for 2ml of e liquid.

Compare this to a 10ml bottle of Bar Salts which costs £3.50, you will get 10ml of premium quality nic salt e liquid that’s made in the UK. That’s 5 times the amount of vape juice for less than the cost of a disposable!

With over 20 fantastic flavours to choose from including popular disposable vape flavours like Blueberry Bubblegum, Apple & Peach and Strawberry Kiwi and available in tapered nicotine strengths ranging from 5mg to 20mg, it caters to all flavour preferences and individual nicotine needs!

Just to make it even more affordable, you can buy Bar Salts on a multi-buy deal and get 4 10ml bottles for just £10. That’s the same price as two Elf Bar’s and you get 20 times the amount of vape juice!

Of course, if you opt to use Bar Salts, you’re going to need to pair them with a refillable vape device, and we will now go over what ones which you can choose from.

The Best Alternative to Disposable Vapes: Refillable Vape Kits 

The selection of vape devices we have available have been carefully selected and are some of the best vape kits on the market, made by leading brands in the vaping industry.

We strongly recommend using a refillable vape pod kit which we have a great selection to choose from here at EDGE Vaping. A refillable pod kit will give you a great vaping experience that will be reminiscent of what you previously got when using a disposable vape. 

Most of the refillable vape kits on the market today have a built-in battery that is rechargeable, something that is lacking in an average disposable vape and these batteries will give you all day vaping use before you'll need to put it on charge. 

The pod vapes can be used with any kind of vape juice that you choose to wish, but if you're looking to explore the best vape juices to use, we recommend pairing any of the devices listed below with our incredible Bar Salts range to get a similar experience like disposables.

Freebase Nicotine E-Liquids

The e liquid used in disposable devices is nicotine salts which is the same that we have used in our Bar Salts range.

Nicotine salts offer a faster absorption rate, and the nicotine hit you get from disposable vapes may be quite strong and a little overwhelming to some.

If you’re wanting to step down your nicotine intake and move away from nic salts, then we have a great selection of freebase nicotine e liquids on offer spanning across two different ranges.

EDGE Core E-Liquid Range

Our EDGE Core range of e-liquids comprises of 10 brilliant flavours to choose from and are priced fairly to ensure that vaping remains affordable to everyone.

This range uses freebase nicotine which still gives a smooth and satisfying nicotine hit, but at a slower absorption rate meaning it will not be as intense as what nicotine salts can be.

Available in 3 different nicotine strengths; 6mg, 12mg and 18mg and featuring flavours such as Blackcurrant, Strawberry Milkshake and Virginia Tobacco, our Core range covers a wide range of flavours and nicotine strengths to cater to everyone’s requirements!

EDGE Core E Liquid Range

EDGE Elite E-Liquid Range

Our EDGE Elite range is similar to our core range but offers some fantastic flavours not available in the Core range and they are made using premium quality ingredients to make them some of the best vape juices on the market!

This is available in the same tapered nicotine strengths; 6mg, 12mg and 18mg. With great fruity flavours such as Raspberry, or sweet flavours such as Pear Drops, they’re perfect if you like sweet and fruity flavoured vape juices.

But if you’re a traditionalist and wanting an authentic tobacco flavour e liquid, Rich Tobacco is the one for you!

Priced at £4 per 10ml or available on multibuy at 4 for £10, we guarantee you will be getting premium quality e liquid at the most affordable price possible.
