The internet is a wonderful thing but while it can be full of information and insight, that information isn't always accurate. Disposable vapes have often been referred to as unsafe, with various myths being told and some believing them to be true.

This article will help quash those myths, helping you better understand the reality of disposable vapes and that there are some benefits of vaping that make it a great alternative to traditional cigarettes.

      They are as unhealthy as tobacco cigarettes

      Many believe that disposable vape pens are just as unhealthy as tobacco cigarettes. They believe vaping is just as bad as smoking tobacco cigarettes because they contain nicotine and harmful chemicals.

      While vapes can contain nicotine, studies have shown that it has fairly insignificant health risks. There are far more addictive chemicals within cigarettes that you should be worried about. From tar, lead, arsenic, and carbon monoxide, the dangers that tobacco products bring are far worse.

      They are more addictive than tobacco cigarettes

      Traditional tobacco cigarettes are addictive and so is a disposable vape pen. There's a myth that many believe disposables are more addictive than conventional cigarettes.

      However, they both contain nicotine and this nicotine is no different from vape products to tobacco cigarettes.

       

       

      They are banned and illegal

      Despite this myth rearing its ugly head from time to time, there's no truth to it. There's no pending legislation in place that bans the use of a disposable vape device or vape products in general. There are few businesses and venues that ban disposable vapes and if they do, it's because they've banned cigarettes too.

      There are some that have banned the use of e-cigarettes but this is dependent on where you are in the world and the laws of that land.

       

      They are more expensive than traditional cigarettes

      Another misconception is that e-cigarettes and vape juice are more expensive than the traditional cigarettes you get from a store. However, this is actually the opposite with vaping devices being significantly cheaper when it comes to the value comparison they provide. The cost of vaping is a lot more appealing than many might first believe.

      For example, a Fire XL 6000 Vape, which costs the same as around one to two packs of cigarettes, equates to over 400 cigarettes per device. The vaping market is booming and the sale of electronic cigarettes is growing day by day. Traditional tobacco cigarettes however are fading into the background.

       

      You can't travel with them

      Out of all the vaping myths, this one often puts vape users and non-vape users off from buying them because they feel they can't travel with them. Of course, there are restrictions when flying, which include the use of batteries and flammable devices/liquids.

      However, disposable e-cigarettes can be traveled with but it's the consumption aboard this transport that's not allowed.

      It's important to be aware of the dangers that come with buying knock-off vape devices. These have been known to explode in your face but if you're buying from reputable companies, you should have no problem with these devices in general.  

      Advantages and disadvantages of disposable vapes

      The vape industry is one that's far from crumbling and with a new vape device and products coming on regularly, the market isn't slowing down by any means.

      Now that we've busted some of the most common myths that come with vape juice and vape e-cigarette use, here are some advantages and disadvantages worth knowing.

      • Availability - There are so many disposable vapes on the market, available on a variety of sites and in-store. Lots of e-cigarette brands to choose from too.
