Lost Mary Disposable Vape VS Aspire Gotek X Rechargeable Kit

Lost Mary Disposable Vape VS Aspire Gotek X Rechargeable Kit

Sales of single-use disposable vapes have dramatically risen in recent years, posing the question, what’s better? a disposable vape or rechargeable and refillable device?

We have decided to compare the very popular Lost Mary disposable to the newly launched Aspire Gotek X kit to help you select the best vape for your specific needs.

Both Lost Mary disposable vapes and Aspire Gotek X rechargeable devices are popular options in the vaping market, but they have some key differences. Let's compare them in terms of convenience, cost-effectiveness, sustainability, and overall performance.

Convenience:

Lost Mary Disposable Vape: This device is designed for one-time use and requires no charging or refilling. It offers a simple and hassle-free vaping experience, making it convenient for users who prefer a grab-and-go approach. The device is ready to use directly out of the box and is designed to provide up to 600 puffs from the mouthpiece. Once all the vape juice and/or the battery is used up the device needs to be replaced. 600 puffs will last the average vaper between 1-3 days depending on usage. The battery can’t be recharged and the pod can’t be refilled with e-liquid.

Aspire Gotek X Rechargeable Device: The Aspire Gotek X is a rechargeable device that requires periodic charging and refilling of e-liquid. While it requires some maintenance, it offers flexibility by allowing users to choose their preferred e-liquids. Also offering; airflow adjustment, a built in 650mAh rechargeable battery, mesh coil pods, whilst catering for both MTL (mouth to lung) and RDTL (restricted direct to lung) vaping.

The Gotek X uses fixed coil pods, a type of vape pod that comes with a built-in coil. When the coil in a fixed coil pod reaches the end of its lifespan or becomes burnt or degraded, the entire pod needs to be replaced. Offering an additional layer of convenience as users don't have to worry about purchasing, installing, or replacing individual coils. Ideal for beginners or those who prefer a hassle-free vaping experience.

Since fixed coil pods come pre-assembled and sealed, they generally offer consistent performance. There is no risk of improper coil installation or variations in coil quality affecting the vaping experience.

Cost-effectiveness:

Lost Mary Disposable Vape: Disposable vapes are typically cheaper upfront since they come pre-filled and require no additional accessories. However, if you are a regular vaper, the cost can add up over time, as you'll need to keep purchasing new disposable devices.

At TABlites, you can purchase 5x Lost Mary devices for only £20, you can mix and match between the AM600, BM600 and QM600 devices in search of your favourite.

Aspire Gotek X Rechargeable Device: Rechargeable devices like the Gotek X may have a higher upfront cost due to the initial purchase of the device and additional accessories like e-liquids and coils. However, in the long run, they tend to be more cost-effective, as you only need to replenish the vape juice and replace coils as needed.

While fixed coil vape pods provide convenience, they can be more expensive in the long run. Instead of merely replacing the coil, you need to purchase entirely new pods, which can accumulate costs over time, especially if you are a frequent vaper. Purchasing Aspire Gotek replacement pods still works out to be considerably cheaper than purchasing Lost Mary disposables when used regularly.

At TABlites you can purchase the Aspire Gotek X kit that comes supplied with a free 10ml e-liquid for only £9.99. We stock a huge variety of vape flavours including; tobacco, menthol, fruit, bakery, drinks, candy, and the list goes on.

Sustainability:

Lost Mary Disposable Vape: Disposable vapes are designed for single-use and are discarded after they are depleted. This contributes to increased waste generation, as the entire device, including the battery and other components are disposed of. This can have a negative impact on the environment, particularly when disposed of improperly.

Disposable vapes contain batteries that can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of correctly. Improper disposal of batteries can lead to soil and water pollution due to the chemicals they contain.

Many disposable vapes are made of plastic, which is a non-biodegradable material. When disposed of, these plastic devices can contribute to the accumulation of plastic waste in landfills or, worse, in natural environments such as oceans and rivers.

Manufacturing disposable vapes requires the use of various resources, including metals, plastics, and energy. The production and transportation of these devices consume resources and contribute to carbon emissions and environmental degradation.

Aspire Gotek X Rechargeable Device: Rechargeable devices are generally more sustainable since they can be reused multiple times. By refilling e-liquids and replacing coils, you reduce the amount of waste produced.

Overall Performance:

Lost Mary Disposable Vape: Disposable vapes are typically designed for convenience and portability rather than delivering exceptional performance. While they provide a satisfactory vaping experience, they may not offer advanced features or customisation options.

Another thing to consider when using disposable vapes like Lost Mary is that you are limited with the choice of vape flavours and nicotine strengths available. All Lost Mary devices are served with 20mg/ml (2%) nicotine salts, so if you are looking for low-medium strength options, vape kits that use 10ml bottles of e-liquid may be a better option for you.

Aspire Gotek X Rechargeable Device: Rechargeable devices like the Gotek X often provide more versatility in terms of performance. While many rechargeable vape kits allow users to adjust power settings, the Gotek X provides a constant output of 13-16W, the optimum power output to work perfectly with the 0.8ohm Gotek pod supplied with the kit. Limiting the risk of setting the power output too high and burning your vape coils prematurely.

When choosing a rechargeable vape kit over disposables there are many advantages including; the choice from a wider range of e-liquids, extended battery life, and adjustable airflow. You can even purchase large capacity 4.5ml Gotek replacement pods so you can vape for longer between e-liquid top-ups.

Conclusion:

Ultimately, the choice between Lost Mary disposable vapes and the Aspire Gotek X rechargeable device depends on your personal preferences. If you prioritise convenience and simplicity, the disposable vape may be suitable. However, if you value cost-effectiveness, sustainability, and the ability to customise your vaping experience, then a rechargeable device like the Gotek X would be a better option.

Disposable vapes offer many advantages for first time vapers, but once you have adjusted from smoking to vaping, we recommend switching to a more permanent device that is both cheaper to run and much better for the environment.
