Lets talk about disposable vapes!What are disposable vapes?
These vapes have bursted onto the scene here in Australia, sold illegally
by dodgy little convenience stores and people trying to make a quick buck on marketplace/instagram.
The reason these devices are illegal is the fact that they contain nicotine.
Nicotine is illegal to sell Australia-wide
(just because some places do it, doesn't mean it's legal).
These products are also of very poor quality, with widespread reports of battery acid leaking throughout the device with the potential to be inhaled. (Photo included of the internals of one of the more popular devices)
Multiple instances of auto-firing have been recorded (basically the device gets stuck on vape mode and ends up igniting and/or melting because of the lack of safety features).
What am I supposed to do if I want to vape?
As these things are designed to be as cheap as possible to maximise profits in a very competitive market it’s likely the metal and liquid they use isn’t of the best quality.
If you would like to start vaping, we would suggest buying a quality rechargeable and refillable pod device like the Univapo Miso Pod
or the crowd favorite Uwell Caliburn
These devices are of similar size, if not smaller than most of the disposable vapes.
Rechargeable via USB, replaceable and refillable pods.
Most people think these disposable devices are cheaper but when you factor in that they only last a few days for upwards of $20, they work out multiple times more expensive than buying a pod device and filling it with your own liquids.
This also opens up so many choices when it comes to flavours so you're not stuck with the same boring flavours day in and day out!But what about my nicotine?
Don't fear, you can legally import nicotine for personal use and add it to your local juices. Pop into the store or give us a call and we can walk you through every step of the way!
If you see your friends smoking disposables, just give them a warning on the quality of these devices and the dangers of using them.
