Big Disposable Vapes : An Emerging Trend in Vaping

5000 Puff disposables also known as big puff disposables have risen in popularity since the UK Government announced a disposable ban. This was announced in January 2024 and is due to come in at the start of April 2024.

The future of big puff disposables is still uncertain, but the latest TPD-compliant models now offer an impressive 5,000 puffs per device. This achievement is thanks to their refillable and rechargeable designs, allowing users to enjoy their favourite nic salt e-liquid flavours from popular brands like Elf Bar and SKE.

Whether you're new to these vape devices or looking for more information, this blog delves into the latest advancements in big puff disposables. You'll gain a thorough understanding of these vape kits and be able to decide if they meet your needs.

Big puff disposable are designed for convenience, being both refillable and rechargeable, and offering up to 6,000 puffs. These TPD-compliant devices come with built-in batteries and offer options for refilling or using changeable prefilled pods.

They deliver nic salt vape juice at a 20mg strength, making them perfect for beginner vapers or anyone looking for a straightforward, compact vape kit. 

Overview of Big Puff Vapes

Big puff vapes resemble traditional disposable kits but offer significantly more puffs—2,400, 3,500, 5,000, or even 6,000—thanks to their refillable and rechargeable nature. While similar technology existed in older squonk mods, those devices became non-compliant with the TPD regulations introduced in 2016.

The new designs, however, meet compliance standards and provide nic salt e-liquid in 20mg nicotine strength, comparable to popular disposables like the Lost Mary BM600, Elf Bar 600, and SKE Crystal Bar 600.

How Do Big Puff Vapes Work?

Big Puff Vapes differ from traditional disposables. When you purchase one, the device is not ready to use immediately; you need to attach the bottle or prefilled pods to make it operational. This flexibility allows for larger disposables that can hold up to 12ml of vape juice.

Refillable Designs

Although this type of disposable is generally not refillable in the way a pod vape is refillable, it does refill the tank inside over time from the bottle attached to the device.

Some disposables, such as the Coss Click by Vaporesso, require you to press a button and turn the device upside down to refill the tank. All are designed to automatically refill in different ways.

However, there is a new product on the market the Geekvape Popvibe. It is both refillable and reusable, featuring a unique coil and bottle design that no other company offers.

Prefilled Pod Designs

All big puff disposables are prefilled, but they come in various designs. The latest style features a 10ml bottle that is separate from the device, you simply attach it when ready. While you can still find 3000-puff and more disposables with the e-liquid already inside, these are not TPD compliant and are illegal.

Another option is the 4-in-1 disposable, which includes four prefilled 2ml pods. This allows you to switch between different flavours easily. You can learn more about these products here.

Vape Juice Inside Disposables

One of the key components that make Big Puff Vapes stand out is the high-quality and diverse selection of vape juice contained within these devices. Big Puff Vapes have more flavours and nicotine strengths than disposable vapes. This is because they can be refilled or have parts replaced. This allows for a wider variety of options for users.

Nicotine Salt E-Liquid

Many Big Puff Vapes use nicotine salt e-liquid, which is known for giving a smoother throat hit than freebase nicotine. This e-liquid is popular with ex-smokers and those who want more nicotine satisfaction without the harshness of higher levels.

Big Puff Vapes sells nicotine salt vape juice in 20mg strength. These are ideal for both new and experienced vapers. They provide a strong yet smooth vaping experience.

Disposable Vape Juice

Disposable vape juice, also known as Disposable Juice or Bar Juice, is revolutionising the vaping experience with its innovative formulation. Designed with smokers in mind to help them when they have switched to vaping, this new type of nicotine salts vape juice ensures a delightful and satisfying experience.

What Makes Disposable Vape Juice Unique?

Disposable vape juice features double the flavour concentrate, giving it a powerful and intense taste that stands out from traditional vape juices. This intense flavour profile is especially important for smokers transitioning to vaping, as smoking often diminishes the sense of taste.

Why Smokers Love It

The primary goal of disposable vape juice is to help smokers appreciate the rich flavours on offer. By enhancing the taste experience, it makes the switch from smoking to vaping more appealing and effective. The carefully crafted flavours ensure that even those with diminished taste buds can enjoy a satisfying vaping experience.

Disposable juice is a game-changer for smokers looking to quit. Its double flavour concentrate and sweet taste provide a compelling alternative to traditional smoking, making it easier for smokers to embrace vaping. If you're a smoker seeking a more enjoyable way to quit, disposable juice might be the perfect solution.

Flavour Variety

Big Puff Vapes often feature an impressive array of flavours, ranging from classic tobacco and menthol to more exotic blends like tropical fruits, desserts, and beverages. Brands like Elf Bar, IVG, and Lost Mary offer a multitude of flavour options, ensuring there’s something for every palate.

This variety not only enhances the vaping experience but also helps users transition from smoking by providing enjoyable alternatives.

Safety and Quality

The vape juice inside these disposables is produced under stringent safety standards to ensure quality and compliance with regulations like the TPD (Tobacco Products Directive). This guarantees that the e-liquids are free from harmful contaminants and provide a consistent vaping experience. However, users should always purchase from reputable vendors to avoid counterfeit products, which may pose significant health risks.

Lifespan of Big Puff Vapes

Big Puff Vapes come in various sizes and shapes, from battery capacity to the amount of vape juice within the devices. Most of the larger models come with 10ml of vape juice, equivalent to five 600-puff disposables.

Regarding battery life, you will likely need to charge them around once every two days, depending on the disposable you choose. For example, the Elfbar AF5000 has a 650mAh battery, while the IVG Smart 5500 boasts a large 1000mAh battery.

How Is 5000 Puff TPD Compliant

To comply with TPD regulations, a loophole has been identified that allows for a different configuration: the tank can be separate from the disposable part, and the tank around the coil is limited to 2ml. This unconventional solution works within the regulations.

This approach ensures that large disposables are tested and safe to use. Often, news reports about individuals being hospitalised from using disposables omit that these products were purchased on the black market or were not nicotine disposables at all, many using cannabis of spice instead of traditional vape juice.

For these reasons, we recommend purchasing disposables only from reputable vendors within the vaping industry. You can never be certain of the origin of products sold at some random shops on the high street, which might be illegal or unsafe.

Pros of Big Puff Vapes

  • Rechargeable: This type of disposable has a large battery which is fully rechargeable.
  • Refillable/Replaceable: These disposables have a refilling system which makes it use to use.
  • Ease of Use: Simple to use device with many only having a screen to show you the battery life & that's it.
  • Cost-Effective Upfront: Far cheaper than just buying the 600 puff disposables, you could just buy one which would last you a whole week, save you money on postage or traveling to a shop 3 times a week.
  • Simple To Charge: All disposable have usb type-c ports which means all your cables will work. As usb type c is now the standard port. As of 28 December 2024, all mobile phones, tablets and cameras sold in the EU must have a USB-C charging port. This has carried over to vapes as well. It is important to not charge at more than 1Amp as any higher can damage the device.

Cons of Big Puff Vapes

  • Single-Use Design: Despite their refillable and rechargeable features, these devices are ultimately single-use due to the pre-built pod and coil.
  • Non-Adjustable Airflow: The fixed airflow limits these vapes to a Mouth To Lung (MTL) style, RDTL (Restricted Direct to Lung) which may not appeal to those looking for big clouds of vape.
  • Has a setup time: While It's still a disposable pod it acts like a pod system, it needs time for the coil to soak up of the vape juice. Plus you needs to setup the device by pushing the bottle into the device.
  • Higher Long-Term Costs: While they are cheaper than your single use disposables, it still costs a lot compared to getting a vape pod or vape pen and a bottle of juice.

Disposal of Big Puff Vapes

Big puff vapes are not considered single-use devices, but they should still be disposed of once the vape juice is depleted, just like other disposable vapes. If you have the new Geekvape Popvibe, remember to keep the battery for reuse.

We encourage recycling whenever possible. Do not throw vapes in a regular bin instead, take them to a recycling centre or place them in a battery disposal bin.


5000+ puff disposable vape offer a larger device that is much cheaper than traditional disposables but still not as costly as a vape pod kit. These devices, which allow for refilling and recharging at a reasonable price point, make excellent beginner kits and could become the new standard for starter kits.

With a ban on single-use disposables imminent, it's a no-brainer to consider them now rather than later. Save yourself money now rather than waiting to see what happens.
