What was once only a fad has become more mainstream in the past few years. With the passing years, vaping is becoming more widely accepted as an alternative to traditional smoking. Each type of device is similar in some ways while different in other ways. There are also advantages and disadvantages to each one.


     Although most websites primarily discuss e-cigs that are rechargeable, there are also companies that produce a disposable electronic cigarette product. There are both pros and cons to each type of e-cig. Let us review the pros and cons of each so that you can make an informed decision when you are making your choice.


Rechargeable Electronic Cigarettes

     Most often vapers will select a rechargeable electronic cigarette to meet their vaping needs. This is because they tend to perform better than the disposable brands, cost less to maintain and feature several options. These types of electronic cigarettes are intended to be used for the long-term. Unlike their disposable counterparts, rechargeable e-cig batteries can be recharged, often from the USB port on your computer when it runs out and the cartridge, tank or clearomizer can either be refilled or replaced when it runs out of juice and stops producing vapor. Other pros and cons include the following.



  • Multiple options including nicotine levels, designs, flavors and more

  • Built to last, high quality products

  • Increased performance

  • Lower costs over the long-term use

  • Long lasting flavor

  • Refillable with your favorite flavored e-juices

  • Eco-friendly with very little waste



  • Higher startup costs for a starter kit that includes the battery

  • Advanced mods can be complex

  • It is necessary to recharge and refill on a regular basis


Disposable Electronic Cigarettes

     Many of the major electronic cigarette companies offer a disposable electronic cigarette option. These disposable models are often available in gas stations, smoke shops and convenience stores. They do provide e-cig users with a convenient and simple way to vape but they are only designed to last for a single cycle before the battery dies. On the average, a disposable e-cig will last the equivalent of between one and two packs of regular cigarettes, depending on how big of a puff you take.



  • Convenient and easy to use – just open the package and puff

  • No recharging or refilling is required

  • Upfront costs average only $5 to $10

  • One piece design

  • No contact with any liquids



  • Limited flavors and nicotine options

  • Poor quality

  • Low quality of performance

  • More expensive in the long run


 As you can see, there are many different things to take into consideration when you are choosing between a rechargeable and a disposable electronic cigarette. If you are completely new to the concept, a disposable version is a cost-effective way to try vaping without making any commitment. However, if you have found that you enjoy vaping and plan to stick with it, investing in a rechargeable version will offer you the most benefits. It will be more cost-effective in the long run as well as provide you with options for nicotine strength and juice flavors.
