19. BrewBox

Disposable vapes have really taken the market by storm, and the BrewBox range combines some of our favourite e-liquids with the simplicity of a disposable, what’s not to love?

BrewBoxs are filled with 2ml of Ohm Brew e-liquid and offer a great way to enjoy some of your favourite Ohm Brew flavours at those times when you need a small and simple device in place of your usual vape kit, like nights out, festivals, and events.

One of the things we love about BrewBox disposable vapes is that they are available in a choice of two nicotine strengths. While most disposable vapes are only available in a 20 mg/ml nicotine strength, which is the highest strength available, BrewBox recognise that not everyone will need such a high strength option. For this reason, they offer the choice of a 20 mg/ml or 10 mg/ml strength, so you can select the option that best reflects your needs.

18. Ploom

Heat-not-burn devices like the Ploom X are a great alternative for smokers who want to eliminate the need for combustion but are not quite ready to give up tobacco completely. Their unique Heatflow technology heats up the EVO tobacco sticks without burning the tobacco, creating a vapour which has an authentic tobacco taste while reducing the amount of harmful chemicals which would usually be realised when a cigarette is burnt.

One of the things we appreciate most about the Ploom range is the amount of variety in their range of EVO sticks, which includes several different tobacco blends and even menthol and fruity options, allowing you to select the flavour that best reflects your preferred brand of cigarettes.

17. IQOS

If you’re interested in heated tobacco products, you’re bound to have heard of IQOS as one of the leading brands in heated tobacco products.

Their IQOS ILUMA and ILUMA One devices have a sleek design that is super user-friendly and offers a great alternative to smoking for those who want an authentic tobacco taste and experience that feels very similar to smoking a cigarette, but without the need for combustion.

IQOS offer two different ranges of tobacco sticks which are compatible with their heated tobacco devices. The ILUMA devices are compatible with the TEREA tobacco sticks, which are available in a choice of seven different flavours, including different tobacco blends, menthol options, and even a fruity tobacco blend.

Their range of HEETS tobacco sticks is compatible with their legacy devices like the IQOS Originals DUO kit and are available in ten flavours, with multiple different tobacco blends ranging from smooth and light to rich and full bodied.

16. Monster Vape Labs

Monster Vape Labs are a relatively new brand to us, but their range of e-liquids and disposable vapes have proved to be a big hit.

Their range of disposable vapes may be small, but they have some unique flavour options that certainly stand out among the crowd, like milk cinnamon, which is not a flavour commonly seen in disposable vapes but is perfect if you’re looking for something sweet and comforting.

Their round, rubberised design makes these convenient little disposable vape pens so comfortable to use, and they’re filled with 2ml of intensely flavourful e-liquid making them perfect for popping in your pocket.

15. Double Brew Bar Series

While disposable vapes are a convenient option for short-term use, like nights out and parties, they’re not the most cost effective or environmentally friendly option when used all the time.

That’s why vaping brands like Double Brew have created their range of e-liquids which replicate the taste of some of your favourite disposable vape flavours but can be used in any compatible refillable vape kit.
Unlike other ranges which have created e-liquids inspired by disposable vapes, Double Brew are not only available in 10ml nic salts, but also in 100ml 50/50 short fill e-liquids, so you can stock up on your favourite flavour.

Something we really love about the Double Brew range is that their nic salts are available in three different nicotine strengths: 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg/ml. This means that not only can you enjoy delicious flavours like blue slush ice and kiwi passionfruit guava, but you can also select the strength that best suits your own personal needs. Ideal for use in refillable disposables like the Ohm Brew Refill Bar.

14. Vampire Vape

Vampire Vape are what you could call veterans of the vaping industry, and most vapers will have heard of them if not used them at some point in their vaping journey. With award winning flavours like Heisenberg and Pinkman there is a reason that these e-liquids have been a staple on the vaping scene for so long.

One of the many reasons we love Vampire Vape is for the freebase nicotine formula that is available in their purple lidded bottles. While we love a good nic salt, some vapers find that the satisfying throat hit of a freebase nicotine e-liquid is exactly what they need to make vaping feel comfortable and familiar to them as an ex-smoker.

Combine this with their range of flavours and wide range of nicotine strengths and you’re got a range that is ideal for pairing with starter kits and pod systems, and perfect for new vapers! But don’t worry, all of their most popular flavours are also available in a smooth nic salt formula if that is what you prefer.

13. Uwell

The Uwell Caliburn range is one of the most popular lines of pod vape kits on the market, with each iteration boasting new features that make for a truly lovely vaping experience.

Uwell Have found ways to offer so many innovative options to their Caliburn pod kit range while maintaining the small size and user-friendly design that they are known for. Like adding adjustable airflow to the pods and haptic feedback in the Caliburn G2 device.

We have a blog post, ‘Which Uwell Caliburn is best’, which takes a deeper look at the Uwell range and lets you compare the devices to find the best one for you.

12. Geekvape

Geekvape are a brand that really do cater to all different vapers. Their range offers everything from starter kits all the way to state-of-the-art advanced kits, and this diversity is one of the many reasons they are such a popular brand.

For those who are relatively new to vaping, their Aegis One pod kit has everything you need while still being straight-forward and easy to use. It has options that let you personalise your vaping experience, like the choice of button activation or draw activation, and three different power levels, but is still approachable for those who are still new to using a vape kit.

On the other hand, their T200 Aegis Touch kit is for those advanced vapers who want all the bells and whistles along with the latest vaping tech. With a 2.4” touch screen it has a luxurious feel, but it is also water, shock, and dust proof so it is super robust and durable.

11. Vuse

Vuse are another of the vaping brands that has been around for many years, and they are constantly using this experience within the industry to create simple and effective products that are designed specifically with new vapers in mind.

Vuse, who previously went by the name Vype, specialise in prefilled pod kits which offer one of the easiest and most user-friendly ways to get started with a vape kit. Their focus is on helping smokers make the switch to vaping, and ePod 2 is arguably one of the simplest starter vape kits available, making it perfect for those who want something simple that will keep their nicotine cravings at bay without any fuss and little maintenance.

Something that really stands out about the Vuse range of prefilled pods is the many different nicotine strengths they offer. They understand that not all vapers have the same needs, and those people who were previously quite light smokers will not need to same nicotine level as those who were heavy smokers. This not only lets you choose the exact strength that best reflects your previous smoking habits, but also gives you the option to lower your nicotine strength over time if this is something you are interested in pursuing.

10. ELFLIQ by Elf Bar

The ELFLIQ range was very hotly anticipated, and boy has it lived up to the hype! Elf Bar were previously known primarily for their disposable vape kits, but the release of their ELFLIQ range has meant that vapers can now enjoy their favourite Elf Bar flavours in any compatible refillable vape kit.

These e-liquids, often referred to as bar salts, have the exact same flavour concentrates and nicotine formula as those contained in the Elf Bar disposable vapes, offering a fantastic alternative if you have been using disposables but are now looking for an alternative that is a little more budget-friendly and less wasteful.

You can choose between a 10 mg/ml or 20 mg/ml nicotine strength, and each bottle is bursting with flavour, offering a similar vaping experience to what you are used to from disposable vapes. Recreate the same experience and save money by pairing ELFLIQ with the a refillable disposable vape like the Ohm Brew refill bar. We even have a handy blog post that helps you find the flavours which taste like your favourite disposables – ‘Which e-liquids taste like disposable vapes?

9. Innokin

If you are looking for a reliable vape kit that is effective, robust, and really gets the job done, then Innokin have got you covered. They have over ten years of experience with manufacturing vape kits, and it really shows in each and every device that they produce.

The place that Innokin really shine for us is with their starter kits, many of their devices, like the Endura T18 II, are options we recommend to new vapers time and time again. From the airflow design to the power output, they feel so familiar and comfortable to use, which is exactly what you need when you are first making the switch.

Innokin products are some of the most timeless devices, that are simple and elegant but also incredibly effective, they really do epitomise everything that a good starter kit needs to be, and more!

8. SKE Crystal Bar & Crystal Plus

SKE Crystal first rose in popularity with their huge range of disposable vapes, with so many different flavour options that there really is something to suit every different flavour preference. But they weren’t satisfied at leaving it with that.

Their Crystal Plus device has only recently been released but it has already proven incredibly popular. The device is a prefilled pod kit, which looks just like one of their disposable vapes, but can be repeatedly recharged whenever needed so you can continue to use it for much, much longer than any disposable vape.

The prefilled pods contain the same delicious e-liquids as their disposable vapes, and are available in all of their most popular flavour. So, if you have been thinking about transitioning to a reusable alternative, the Crystal Plus is a great little device with a fantastic flavour range.

7. Aspire

Aspire are probably best known for their PockeX kit, which is a phenomenal little starter kit that we have been recommending to vapers for many, many years.

But the PockeX is not the only vape kit that makes Aspire such a great vaping brand, they also have several advanced mods like the Vrod 200, and more simple devices like the One Up R1 which is a refillable and rechargeable disposable vape.

Aspire have been leading innovation in the vaping industry since 2013, and we see no signs that they are going to be slowing down any time soon!


SMOK are one of the biggest names in vaping, and their extensive and diverse range of vape kits really demonstrates the benefits that come with the expertise they have gathered during their many years in the industry.

Whether you’re looking for a starter, intermediate, or advanced vape kit, chances are there is a SMOK device that will suit you. One of their most popular ranges is the Nord line of pod vape kits, which combine the ease of a refillable pod kit with a powerful built-in battery, for a versatile range of devices.

One of the things that we really enjoy about SMOK products is the huge variety of coil options that they offer. Almost all SMOK kits have multiple coil options to choose from, allowing you to select the one that feels most comfortable to you and best suits your preferred power output. It is little things like this that allow you to personalise your vaping experience and make SMOK products stand out among the rest.

VOOPOO are known for the high quality and craftsmanship of their vape kits, and the fact that their range extends all the way from starter vape kits like the Argus Z pod kit, to intermediate devices like the Drag S Pro kit, to advanced kits like the Drag 4 kit.

With little touches like leather panels and sleek lines, the VOOPOO range both looks and feels sophisticated and modern, and always offer smooth and flavourful vapour, no matter which device you choose.

Their Drag has proved to be particularly popular among vapers, with each iteration offering exciting new features and more advanced chipsets, that really demonstrate how VOOPOO are constantly at the forefront of innovation within the vaping industry.

If you’re a lover of refillable pod kits, then chances are you will love the Vaporesso range. They specialise in refillable pod kits with options to suit both new and intermediate vapers, but their range offers options for vapers at all different stages.

One of the things that really stands out about Vaporesso’s range is how well they combine high quality products which are effective and user-friendly, with sleek and stylish designs which are eye-catching and striking.

Each of their devices, from the XROS 3 to the LUXE XR Max has a unique look and are optimised to offer the most exquisite vaping experience, from flavour production, to airflow, to power output.

2. Elf Bar

It will likely be no surprise that Elf Bar have ranked so highly on our list, as there is no denying that in only a couple of years they have become one of the most popular vaping manufacturers on the market.

They initially hit the vaping scene with their incredibly popular range of disposable vapes, the Elf Bar 600. They offer one of the biggest flavour ranges available, and something that holds them separate from many other vaping brands is the fact that they are available in multiple nicotine strengths, with all flavours available in a 20 mg/ml, and selected flavours also available in a 10 mg/ml and nicotine free option, to help you achieve your perfect nicotine satisfaction.

But they have since expanded their range to include prefilled pod kits like the Elf Bar ELFA, which incorporate all of your favourite Elf Bar flavours with a rechargeable battery, letting you enjoy the same great taste but without as much waste. Their Elf Bar Mate 500 device is unique in that it is not only compatible with an extensive range of prefilled pods, but also with a refillable pod which can be paired with any compatible e-liquid in whichever strength and flavour you fancy.

These starter kits are a fantastic option if you are new to vaping and looking for a simple device to get starter with, or if you are looking for a way to transition from disposable vapes to a more economical alternative. They have also proved that Elf Bar are not just a one trick pony and they are certainly here to stay!

1. Ohm Brew

Ohm Brew are one of the most diverse e-liquid brands available, and it should come as no surprise that they are taking the top spot on our list! From nic salts to freebase, 50/50 to high VG, their e-liquid range includes every possible formula so there is an Ohm Brew e-liquid to suit every different vaper and every different vape kit.

Their 50/50 nic salt range is one that we are constantly recommending to new vapers, as the flavour range is unrivalled and the nicotine strengths range all the way from 3 mg/ml to 18 mg/ml, so you can find the exact strength that will satisfy your nicotine cravings and help you successfully make the switch from smoking to vaping. Plus, the nic salts offer an incredibly smooth inhale and satisfy cravings in a matter of seconds, and the 50/50 formula is perfect for pairing with starter vape kits and pod systems.

But sub-ohm and advanced vapers can also join in on the Ohm Brew fun with their Badass Blends, Badass XL, Baltic Blends, and Baltic Extreme ranges of high VG short fill e-liquids. If you’re transitioning from their 50/50 range to a high VG formula you can find many of your favourite flavours in their short fill e-liquid range, and they’re perfect for creating thick, dense, and flavourful clouds.

Their most recent addition is a little bit different, as they have recently welcomed the Ohm Brew Refill Bar, which is a rechargeable and refillable disposable vape kit that can be refilled up to 15 times before it will need to be disposed of. For disposable vape users who are looking for a way to reduce their plastic waste and also spend less money on disposable vapes, this is a fantastic option, and can be paired with bar salt e-liquids for that authentic disposable vapes taste.
