What is a SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape?

SKE Crystal Bars are a popular disposable vape in the UK that feature a clear and transparent body that have been diamond cut to resemble a crystal. Crystal Bars are single-use vape devices that are ready to use out of the box. They arrive pre-charged and pre-loaded with vape juice, ready to vape. To vape simply inhale on the flat mouthpiece, the auto-draw or inhale-activation capabilities will kick in to provide an instant blast of nicotine in the flavour you choose.

The device will provide up to 600 puffs or draws. When the Crystal Bar no longer produces vapour when the mouthpiece is inhaled upon, it is time to safely dispose of the device and start a fresh one.

Disposable vapes allow you to inhale nicotine in a vapour, without the tar and carbon monoxide found in tobacco smoke. Here you can check out our blog on the benefits of switching from smoking to vaping.

Who makes the SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape?

The SKE Crystal Bar is designed and manufactured by SKE, Shenzhen Technology Co. Ltd. Based in the Bao’an District, Shenzhen, China.

They also make a range of prefilled pod kits that have all the convenience of a disposable vape but with the benefit of a rechargeable battery to reduce waste.

How do SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes work?

SKE Crystal Bars arrive charged, filled with vape juice and ready to use out of the box. The internals of the device consist of a coil or heating element, battery, chamber to hold e-liquid and e-liquid. When the mouthpiece is inhaled upon, a sensor is triggered to automatically activate the battery. The battery heats the coil, the heating process vaporizes the liquid and turns it into a vapour to be inhaled.

The SKE Crystal Bar is a sealed vape or closed unit, meaning there are no access points and no way of refilling the device with vape juice, recharging the battery or changing the coil. When the device no longer produces vapour when the device is inhaled upon it is time to replace it with a new disposable vape bar.

Before using disposable vapes read all the information listed on the packaging, including warnings and precautions. Remove the rubber bung and tamper evident seal sticker. If you wish you can scan the code on the side of the box to check it is an authentic product and recycle the packaging.


How do you use a SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape?

SKE Crystal Bars feature clever inhale to vape technology also known as auto-draw or inhale-activation. Simply inhale on the mouthpiece for instant vapour, when you have finished your vaping session, you can put the device in your pocket or bag until you are ready to vape again.

As long as the Crystal Bar doesn’t detect you inhaling on the device it will remain turned off. This is why disposable vapes are so appealing, beginner-friendly and easy to use. There are no buttons, no complicated features, no refilling with e-liquid, no charging batteries and no fiddly and messy coil changing. Disposable bars offer the ultimate vaping convenience and an ideal stepping stone into the world of vaping.

Why is the light blinking on the base of my SKE Crystal Bar?

A blinking light on the base of the SKE Crystal Bar is an indicator that the disposable single-use device is nearing the end of its life. The SKE Crystal Bar is fitted with a built-in 500mAh battery. A 500mAh battery, combined with a 2ml e-liquid capacity will provide up to 600 puffs or draws. When the LED light blinks and vapour production comes to a halt, the device is ready to be safely disposed of.

What’s inside my SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape?

SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes are made up of various parts:

SKE Crystal Bar Disposable Vape Parts

Integrated Battery: The integrated battery is embedded in the device and can’t be accessed or removed. The battery arrives fully charged and the device is ready to use out of the box. The battery can’t be recharged, the LED light on the base of the device will blink to indicate that the disposable vape has ran out of battery and ready to be replaced. The battery capacity of a SKE Crystal Bar is 500mAh and has been designed to provide up to 600 puffs.

E-Liquid Chamber/Pod: The e-liquid chamber is often referred to as a pod. The integrated pod is a closed unit, meaning that there are no access points to refill the device with e-liquid. When you inhale on the mouthpiece and less vapour is produced and/or the flavour tastes slightly burnt, this is an indication that the vape juice contained inside is running low and the device needs replacing. SKE Crystal Bars contain 2ml of e-liquid in line with UK regulations.

Atomiser Coil or Heating Element: The atomiser coil refers to the heating element that heats the liquid contained within the pod. The inside of the coil contains cotton, the cotton acts as a wicking material that effectively delivers e-liquid to the heating coil.

When the mouthpiece of the disposable vape is inhaled upon the atomiser coil will heat the vape juice contained within the e-liquid chamber and produce a vapour.

The SKE Crystal Bar contains a 1.2ohm mesh coil. Mesh coils are a strip of metal with holes punched through to resemble a mesh. Mesh coils provide greater surface area between the atomiser coil, wicking material and e-liquid compared to twisted coil atomisers. Twisted coils tend to heat the e-liquid from the middle outwards, creating a hot spot.

SKE CRYSTAL BAR Mesh Coil Heating

On the other hand, mesh coils heat up evenly generating heat through a larger surface area resulting in more intense flavour, larger clouds and longer lasting coils.

A 1.2ohm coil is referred to as a high resistance coil, a high resistance coil means that less charge can be passed through the coil, to provide a MTL (Mouth to Lung) inhale that closely mimics the sensation a regular cigarette provides with low to medium cloud production.

If you would like further information on vape coils and how they work you can check out our ultimate guide to coils here.

E-Liquid or Vape Juice: 

The SKE Crystal disposable vape bar is filled with 20mg/ml or 2% nicotine salt liquid. Nic salts provide a smooth inhale even when vaped at higher nicotine strengths, without the harsh throat hit, making the transition from smoking to vaping more comfortable. The smooth, mild and satisfying inhale closely mimics the sensation a regular combustible cigarette provides.

Nic salt vape juices carry flavour exceptionally well delivering incredible flavour throughout the duration of your disposable vape.

Mouthpiece or Drip Tip: The diamond cut outer casing forms a flat mouthpiece at the end of the SKE Crystal disposable vape bar. The streamlined mouthpiece has been designed for comfort, constructed from food-grade PCTG material.

Outer Casing: The sleek and attractive diamond design outer casing holds all the inner parts together and keeps them dry and protected. The SKE Crystal Bar is constructed from aluminium alloy and food-grade PCTG clear plastic to form the stunning crystal design.

The colour of the vape bar represents the flavour of e-liquid contained inside, so you can easily tell them apart if you have multiple on the go at once.

What materials are the SKE Crystal Bar made from?

The SKE Crystal Bar is constructed from aluminium alloy and food-grade PCTG. PCTG is a clear co-polyester material that creates the stunning crystal-like appearance.

Are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes easy to use?

The SKE Crystal Bars are extremely easy to use and are a great place to start your vaping journey. Disposable vapes are the easiest electronic cigarettes to use, they require no maintenance, up-keep or set-up. Crystal Bars are ready to use out of the box, inhale on the mouthpiece for instantly satisfying vapour. When the device no longer produces vapour you can safely dispose of it in one of our instore recycling bins and start a new one. 

Are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes beginner friendly?

SKE Crystal Bars and other popular disposable vapes like Lost Mary, IVG and Elf Bar disposable vapes are the most beginner-friendly devices available. Disposable vapes are single-use, all-in-one devices that are supplied with a charged battery, prefilled with e-liquid and will provide up to 600 puffs. Disposables have been designed for temporary use. When the battery or the vape juice runs empty the entire device can be discarded.

Do SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes require any maintenance?

Disposable vapes require no maintenance. Remove the device from the packaging, pull out the rubber bung from the mouthpiece and the tamper evident seal sticker from the base of the device, and take a draw/inhale on the mouthpiece. The device will provide up to 600 puffs. When the device no longer produces vapour or the vapour tastes slightly burnt, dispose of the single-use device.

When using rechargeable and refillable vape kits like pen kits and pod kits, you can refill them with vape juice and recharge them. Over time the heating element called a coil will need replacing. Disposable devices remove all of these additional steps for simplicity and easy vaping.

Who are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes for?

SKE Crystal Bars like other disposable vapes are a great option for existing smokers over the age of 18 who are new to vaping and looking to make the switch from tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes. Disposable vapes offer a quick, convenient, inexpensive (initial layout) and easy to use option. Disposables offer the ultimate vaping convenience and require no set-up or maintenance. We recommend disposable vapes for customers looking for compact, lightweight and hassle-free vaping while on the go.

When first making the switch over to vaping it can be quite daunting, asking yourself, what e-liquid should I choose?, what strength?, what flavour?, how do I change a vape coil?, etc. Disposables are an uncomplicated way to explore what vaping has to offer, before investing in your first rechargeable and refillable vape kit.

Disposable vapes aren’t just for new vapers, they are also a great option for experienced vapers looking for a portable and easy to use device for holidays, music concerts, or for when your main vape kit is being charged.

How old do you have to be to purchase SKE Crystal disposable vapes in the UK?

You must be over the age of 18 to purchase and use disposable vapes in the UK. It is illegal to sell vape devices and vape juice to anyone under the age of 18. The sale of tobacco and vaping products was updated in October 2015 by the UK government.

At TABlites brick and mortar vape stores and our online store at, strict age verification processes are in place to avoid selling vape products to minors. Underage sale of vapes is strictly prohibited.

How long do SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes last?

SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes are designed to match the equivalent of regular packet of 20 cigarettes.

Crystal Bars are filled with 2ml of 20mg/ml nicotine salt vape juice, when combined with a 500mAh battery will provide approximately 600 puffs/draws. Each inhale will provide 66.7ug of nicotine per puff.

The longevity of your disposable vape depends on the battery capacity and the volume of vape juice within the tank. Crystal Bars last the average user 1 to 3 days but this will depend on how much they are used and the length of draw on each puff. For heavy smokers/vapers they could last a day, for social smokers/vapers and light smokers they can last for longer periods.

SKE CRYSTAL BAR provides up to 600 puffs per disposable vape bar

Why does my SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape provide less puffs than stated on the packaging?

The puff count stated on the packaging is an approximate number of draws you are able to get from the device before it runs out of battery and/or e-liquid. If longer and deeper draws are taken, this can decrease the amount of puffs you are able to achieve from a disposable device.

Use the puff count displayed on packaging as an approximation for the amount of draws the device will provide. If you feel you are not getting close to the amount of puffs try taking smaller inhales and less excessive vaping.

Are Crystal vapes safe?

Crystal vape bars are safe when used correctly. They are arguably safer than regular vape kits because you can’t put in the wrong vape juice, set the wattage of the device too high or insert the wrong vape coil.

Disposable vapes are inhale activated, the device only activates when the mouthpiece is inhaled upon. There’s no risk of the device accidentally firing in your pocket or bag.

SKE CRYSTAL BAR - Strong Chip for Safe Use

While electronic cigarettes are not completely risk free, they pose a small fraction of the risk of regular cigarettes. Disposable vapes are used to effectively deliver nicotine to the bloodstream. There’s no burning involved and vapes don’t produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most damaging elements found in combustible cigarettes.

Disposable vape safety:

The NHS says… “In the UK, e-cigarettes are tightly regulated for safety and quality.

Vaping is not completely risk-free, but it poses a small fraction of the risk of smoking cigarettes. The long-term risks of vaping are not yet clear. E-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke. Nicotine itself is not very harmful and has been used safely for many years in medicines to help people stop smoking.

An expert independent review published by Public Health England (PHE) found that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful to health than tobacco and have the potential to help smokers quit smoking. The current best estimate is that e-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than smoking.”


What are the benefits of switching from smoking to vaping?

Cancer Research UK says… “Vaping is far less harmful than smoking. So, your health could benefit from switching. But you need to stop using tobacco completely to get the benefits.

E-cigarettes can help people stop smoking and are a popular stop smoking tool. They can give people who smoke the nicotine hit they need to help beat their cravings. Vaping can also feel similar to smoking, like holding a cigarette and breathing in. For the best chance of stopping smoking for good, get advice from your local stop smoking service, GP or pharmacist. 

Switching from cigarettes to e-cigarettes could save you a lot of money. Some people spend more than others, but in general, vaping costs less than half as much as smoking.”


SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape Warnings and Precautions

This product is not recommended for use by young people (Under the age of 18) and pregnant or breastfeeding women and those experiencing general ill health.

What are the possible adverse effects from disposable vapes?

First-time e-cigarette users may experience irritation of the mouth, a dry throat or cough. If you inhale too much nicotine or use this product too much you may experience one or more of the following effects. Feeling faint, nausea (feeling sick), coughing, irritation in the mouth or throat, dizziness, stomach discomfort, hiccups, vomiting, chest palpitations, abnormal heart rate.

If you are experiencing any of these side effects listed above discontinue using this product. If the effects continue after you stop use. Consult your doctor or healthcare professional and report the incident details as per guidance to their attention.

Will SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes help me quit smoking?

The NHS says… “The routines and rituals of smoking can be hard to stop, so vaping can help you gradually let go of these while immediately reducing the health risks of smoking cigarettes.

You're roughly twice as likely to quit smoking if you use a vape compared with other nicotine replacement products, like patches and gum.

Some people find vaping helps them because the hand-to-mouth action is like smoking, plus you get similar sensations, like throat hit (the "kick" in the back of your throat when you inhale).

Any smoking is harmful and you will only get the full benefits of vaping if you stop smoking completely. Some people manage to make a full switch very quickly, while for others it can take a bit longer.”


Are disposable vapes harmful?

The NHS says… “Switching to vaping significantly reduces your exposure to toxins that can cause cancer, lung disease, and diseases of the heart and circulation like heart attack and stroke.”

“Vaping does not cause "popcorn lung" – the common name for a rare disease called bronchiolitis obliterans, found in workers exposed to a chemical used to flavour popcorn.”


Do I have to worry about secondhand vaping around others?

The NHS says… “While secondhand smoke from cigarettes causes serious harm to others, there is no evidence so far that vaping is harmful to people around you.

But as a precaution, it is best not to vape around babies and children if you can avoid it. Young children often copy what adults do.

Always be considerate when vaping around anyone else, especially people with health conditions like asthma or other respiratory conditions, or people who do not like vaping.”


Is vaping nicotine bad for you?

Cancer Research UK says… Nicotine is the chemical that makes cigarettes addictive. But it is not responsible for the harmful effects of smoking. Nicotine does not cause cancer, and people have used nicotine replacement therapy safely for many years. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is safe enough to be prescribed by doctors.

Are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes addictive?

SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes contain 20mg/ml (2.0%) of nicotine salt vape juice. 20mg is the highest juice strength available in UK. High strength vapes are designed to provide an instantly satisfying blast of nicotine to curb your nicotine cravings for longer periods of time.

Disposable bars that contain nicotine are addictive. Look out for the warning on the front of the packaging “This product contains nicotine which is a highly addictive substance”. 

Disposable vapes are available that contain no nicotine, these vapes are not addictive, but provide the hand to mouth action associated with smoking, the PG (propylene glycol) in the e-liquid will provide a slight throat hit. Take a look at the Elf Bar 600 for zero nicotine (0mg) containing e-liquids available in a range of popular vape flavours.

Are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes for quitting smoking?

An NHS article about Vaping to Quit Smoking says… Vape bars are amongst the best devices to quit smoking, they are discreet, make minimal clouds, can provide high amounts of nicotine and are available in a wide range of flavours.

It's important to choose an e-liquid with the right strength of nicotine to satisfy your individual needs. You need to start at a nicotine level that matches your cigarette use – how frequently and how much you smoke. A specialist vape shop or your local Stop Smoking Service can advise you.

Whichever vape you choose, make sure you use it regularly. About two thirds of people who use a vape along with expert support successfully quit smoking.


Professor Ann McNeill, King’s College London and independent author of the review, said:

“E-cigarettes could be a game changer in public health in particular by reducing the enormous health inequalities caused by smoking.”

Professor Peter Hajek, Queen Mary University London and independent author of the review said:

“My reading of the evidence is that smokers who switch to vaping remove almost all the risks smoking poses to their health. Smokers differ in their needs and I would advise them not to give up on e-cigarettes if they do not like the first one they try. It may take some experimentation with different products and e-liquids to find the right one.”

What are the best tips for successfully switching over to vapes?

How can I tell if my SKE Crystal Bar disposable vape is a genuine product?

The SKE Crystal Bar like most other disposable vapes available allow you to check the authenticity of the product. Scratching the authenticity checker with a coin will reveal a 14 digit code.

SKE Crystal Bar Verification Checker

At TABlites we work with the biggest names in the vape industry, some for over a decade. We either purchase our products direct from the source, or from reputable suppliers and distributers in the UK. We guarantee that all the products we stock and sell are genuine products and fully TPD compliant.

Are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes regulated?

SKE Crystal Bars are regulated under the TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) in the UK. The laws of the TPD came into effect on the 20th May 2016. Vaping devices and vape juice must be approved by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The regulations state that vape tanks can’t exceed 2ml capacity (including disposable vapes). A useful rule of thumb is that if your vape device can provide more than 800+ puffs, it is probably illegal in the UK. They also can’t exceed 20mg/ml nicotine (2%) in strength.

What are the TPD requirements in the UK?

SKE Crystal disposable vape bars are fully TPD compliant and fall within the requirements outlined above and are legal to be sold and used in the UK.

SKE design and produce disposables for other countries outside of the EU that do not fall under the TPD. The SKE Icon Bar for example, features a 6ml e-liquid capacity and can provide up to 2000 puffs, making it non TPD compliant and not legal to be sold in the UK.

At TABlites we only work with well-respected and trusted manufacturers and suppliers of vape juice and hardware, including disposable vapes.

If your disposable is capable of providing a huge amount of puffs (like the Elux Legend 3500 puffs), then you have probably purchased a vape device that’s illegal in the UK. 

Disposable vapes have massively grown in popularity in recent years and are more widely available than ever, they are now being sold in pharmacies, corner shops, supermarkets and markets. While most stores will adhere to the laws in the UK, you will come across a few rogue stores who are looking to make fast money who disregard the health of their customers in the process.

The TPD laws are a minimum standard for the safety and quality of vape devices and e-liquids, the regulations are in place to make sure that information is provided to customers so that they can make informed decisions, and to protect children from starting to use these products.

Always make sure you are buying your vaping products from trusted vendors and reputable online vape stores, to ensure you are always purchasing products that are safe, reliable, legal and fully TPD compliant.

Are SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes illegal in the UK?

For a disposable vape to be legal in the UK it must be fully TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) compliant. The TPD came into effect on 20th May 2016, and ensures a high level of health protection. The SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes are fully TPD compliant and are legal to be sold in the UK.

At TABlites we only work with well-respected and trusted manufacturers and suppliers of high-quality vape juice and hardware, including disposable vapes. We only stock the best vape products available that are legal in the UK.

How can I tell if a disposable vape is legal in the UK?

The e-liquid contained within the disposable vape must not exceed 2ml. The strength of e-liquid must not exceed 20mg or 2%. If your disposable vape can provide thousands of puffs it is definitely not within the laws set by the TPD and is illegal in the UK.

Examples of illegal disposable vapes found in the UK

(The products listed below are legal for international markets, just not under the TPD in the UK and Europe because they exceed the 2ml e-liquid capacity, and available in nicotine strengths above 20mg/ml or 2%)

What vape juice is used in SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes?

The SKE Crystal Bar like most other disposable vapes contains nicotine salt or nic salt e-liquid. Nicotine salt liquids are used in disposable vapes because they quickly and effectively deliver nicotine to the blood stream (usually within 6-8 seconds) satisfying your nicotine cravings almost immediately.

Nic salts provide a smooth draw, even when vaped at high nicotine strengths like 20mg/ml found in the SKE Crystal Bar. Beneficial for ex-smokers adjusting to vaping.

The e-liquid contained within SKE Crystal Bars contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerine (VG), salt nicotine and flavourings. Each puff will provide 66.67ug of nicotine.

What are the benefits of SKE Crystal disposable vapes?

Instant Satisfaction

SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes contain 2ml’s of nicotine salt e-liquid in 20mg/ml strength. Nic salts provide a smooth inhale with less of a throat hit and deliver excellent flavour.

SKE vape Crystal bars feature a 1.2ohm mesh coil, when combined with nicotine salt will provide a MTL (Mouth to Lung) inhale that closely resembles the draw you would take on a tobacco cigarette. When making the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes you want your vape to offer similarities to cigarettes to make the transition as easy as possible.

Puff on the vape bar for clouds of vapour, when the device reaches the end of its life simply dispose of it and start a new one.

Affordable (Cheap initial layout)

Disposable vapes are super-affordable, so you don’t have to break the bank to get involved. You can take a look at our multi-buy deals at and pick up a selection of disposable vape bars at discounted prices.

When you have tried a few vape flavours and get used to vaping we recommend investing in a rechargeable pod vape kit with your preferred vape juice flavour. We have a range of TABlites nic salts that are available in all the popular disposable vape bar blends served in 10ml bottles. Pod kits are an excellent next step from Crystal bars because they are lightweight, compact, and offer similar functionality. Some rechargeable pod kits are activated by inhalation, and are very easy to use and operate.

Low cost

Crystal vapes are low cost devices, especially if you purchase multiples and get a discount for buying in bulk. They are a great option for times when you don’t want to take a more expensive vape kit with you. If you lose or damage a disposable vape, it isn’t the end of the world, you can pick up another one. Better than damaging or losing your main vape kit.

Always make sure you purchase your vapes from trusted stores to ensure you are purchasing a quality product, you are inhaling it into your lungs after all.

What are the disadvantages of SKE Crystal Bar disposable vapes?

Wasteful (Not environmentally friendly)

Disposable vapes as the name suggests are designed to have a shorter lifespan compared to rechargeable vape kits. When the device has ran out of vape juice and battery it can be discarded. 

Non Rechargeable

When a disposable vape reaches the end of it’s life, the dreaded LED light can start blinking unexpectedly with little warning when the battery has run out. This can be annoying at times when it isn’t convenient to pop down to your local vape store or supermarket to purchase a new one.

Non Refillable

Disposable vapes feature a closed pod system, with no way of gaining access to the inside to top up with e-liquid. When the device runs out, it’s time to throw the entire device away. Crystal Bars have a reservoir e-liquid chamber that holds a maximum capacity of 2ml’s of e-liquid and can’t be refilled.

Expensive in the long run

Disposable vape bars are a cheap initial purchase, and many multi-buy vape deals are available making them even cheaper. But when used every day, can be quite expensive when compared to a rechargeable vape kit that can be refilled with e-juice.

If you have successfully made the switch over to vaping with the use of a disposable vape we recommend investing in a more permanent vape device. At TABlites we stock a wide selection of pen vape kits, pod vape kits and vape starter kits that offer excellent portability and ease of use, similar to the convenient and hassle-free approach disposable bars offer. The initial layout of a rechargeable will be slightly more expensive, but when used over longer periods of time will save you a lot of money.

Rechargeable kits are compatible with bottles of 10ml e-liquid, you can choose between, high PG, high VG, or for a similar sensation you get from your disposable vape, try salt nicotine e-liquids. All our bottles of e-liquid are available in multi-buy deals so you can start saving money today.

Our company was started in 2011, over a decade of experience later we are here to help you, guide you and answer any vape related questions you may have. You can visit your local TABlites vape store on the high-street or give us a call for expert advice.

Limited strength options

Disposable vapes are most often available in 20mg which is classed at high strength liquid. If you are looking for low to medium strength e-liquids you are sometimes limited with options. Nasty Fix disposables are available in 10mg and 20mg, and the Elf Bar 600 is available in a limited number of flavours in zero mg (0%).

Bottles of e-liquid are available in a wide range of nicotine strengths to cater for a larger audience. E-liquids are available in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 10mg, 12mg, 18mg and 20mg.

Less flavour options

10ml bottles of e-liquid and 50/100ml short-fills are available in a huge catalogue of vape flavour blends offering more choice to consumers.

Disposable vapes have mainly focused on fruity and fruity ice vapes, but when it comes to e-liquid some of our most popular flavours are dessert blends, tobacco, menthol and even candy vapes.

When switching to vape juice flavours the list is endless, if you can think of it, it’s probably available.

Short lifespan

Disposable Crystal vapes are designed to provide roughly a day or two’s worth of vaping for the average consumer. Once the battery and the e-liquid is used up, the device is designed to be thrown away. Sometimes the device can run out unexpectedly and leave you without a vape. A way of combating this is to always carry a spare vape or invest in a more substantial vape device that you can charge and fill with e-liquid.

What are the alternatives to disposable vapes?

The closest rechargeable vape kits to disposable vapes are pod system vape kits. They are compact, lightweight and portable. They are compatible with nic salt vape juice, available in 10mg and 20mg in a huge range of flavours. Many even offer inhale-activation, so you can just inhale to vape. Pod kits are uncomplicated and very easy to use.

If you are ready to take the step from a disposable bar to a rechargeable and refillable device take a look at our extensive range of pod kits.

Although disposables are cheap to buy, especially when purchased within a multi-buy deal, when used every day can work out quite expensive. Kits that use 10ml bottles of e-liquid and removable coils work out much cheaper in the long run and are much more eco-friendly reducing the amount of single-use plastic going into landfill.

For more information on the benefits of switching your disposables out for a pod kit check out our blog.
