A disposable e-cigarette is, as the name suggests, an electric cigarette that you can throw away after use. A disposable e-cigarette has a useful life that roughly corresponds to two to three packs of normal cigarettes. There are various brands that offer these e-cigarettes including Flavor Vapes and SmokeStik. After use, the device must be returned to a collection point for batteries.
A disposable e-cigarette is meant to replace a normal cigarette, with the biggest difference that no tobacco is burned but e-liquid is evaporated. Evaporation of this liquid does not release the harmful substances that do arise during combustion. With the standard disposable e-cigarette, the smoking experience is copied as much as possible to keep it as familiar as possible for switchers. MTL fumes stands for "Mouth To Lung", the vapor goes from the mouth to the lungs, just like cigarettes. In addition, there is the "water pipe" experience where the vapor goes directly to the lungs, which we call "Direct to Lung" or DTL. All disposable e-cigarettes work according to the MTL principle. Buttons are also missing on these simple models.
In these electric cigarettes, an e-liquid is used that mainly consists of PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerin). Both substances are harmless to health, for example PG is used in smoke machines (without smoke) and VG is widely used in food. Depending on the composition and sensitivity of the user, there may be an irritating effect on the throat that we call "throat hit".
In contrast to real cigarettes, with a disposable e-cigarette there is a choice of the amount of nicotine up to 0% nicotine. This can help to reduce a nicotine addiction. For "bulk users" a refillable product is obvious, there are many more options. For ease of use, or to test electric fumes, disposable e-cigarettes can be the solution.
