If you haven’t switched to a disposable vape pen from your Juul pod device yet, it’s time to start looking. As of February 1st, new FDA vaping guidelines go into effect that limit the options of people who use Juul vapes and other cartridge or pod-based vaping systems. Instead of the flavors you’re used to, these devices will only be allowed in tobacco and menthol flavors. For vape enthusiasts who loved the burst of flavor they got from their handy pocket-sized device, this could be a big departure, but there are alternatives available.
The New FDA Policy
The FDA’s new stance is designed to address the proliferation of teen vaping, and they hope that by getting rid of the ubiquitous Juul device and its counterparts in favor of disposable vape pens, fewer minors will be able to get vapes and supplies. In addition, other vapes cannot be marketed to youth or in a way that promotes use by youth. Manufacturers also have to take measures to ensure that their products don’t fall into the hands of minors. Little to no guidance is provided to clarify their standards for the application of these new enforcement initiatives.
What DIsposable Devices Are
Unlike cartridge devices, like the Juul pod device, where the cartridge is meant to be disposed of after it’s empty and the remainder used with a new filled cartridge, disposable devices are pre-charged, pre-filled, and ready-to-use straight from their packaging. Once your disposable vape pen is either out of power or out of juice, simply throw the whole device away and open a new one to finish your vape break. You can also invest in a Juul™ compatible refill pod to continue using your favorite flavors and potencies.
Wide Selection Available
Disposable vapes aren’t new, but in the wake of the FDA regulations, they’re getting renewed attention from both manufacturers and customers. In order to meet the growing demand, some of the biggest cartridge manufacturers have moved to support the new policy that favors disposable vape pen devices by offering their most popular concentrations and flavors. The result is that even though these changes are new, there is already a robust selection to choose from.
Choosing The Right Disposable For You
When picking a disposable to transition to, there are a few considerations to make.
- Flavor - Since the Juul pod device was already discontinuing so many flavors from their limited selection, many Juul users were already turning to compatible pods from other manufacturers to please their palates. The good news is that some of these top manufacturers, like Z-Stick, Plus Pod, and Sea Pod, have made the transition to offering the same great flavors in disposable vape pens.
- Strength - Of course, one of the reasons Juul pods were so popular was the consistent nicotine delivery. When it comes to the new crop of single-use pens, more manufacturers means more options to tailor your vaping to the strength you need. While several companies, such as Puff Bar and Propaganda’s Cali Bar offer both the 5% strength that’s equivalent to the juice Juul uses, they also offer a lower 2% strength for those who need a gentler hit. Cali Air, on the other hand, is just offering a solid 5%, while some manufacturers like Plus Pod are offering a stouter 6% nicotine concentration in their disposable vape pen.
- Design - There isn’t a lot of variation in the user experience of these slim devices. The general form factor is that of a stick vape. They’re draw-fired, making them perfect for one-handed use and not prone to “pocket” activation. The big difference comes with their capacity. While most offer a capacity of a little less than a milliliter and a half, giving you 250-300 puffs, the Cali Air has double the capacity at 2.7ml for approximately 600 puffs, but pairs it with a larger design.
Transitioning is as easy as choosing the vape that most closely fits your needs and making sure you have extras. There’s no charging, refilling, or buttons to push, making a disposable vape pen about the easiest way to vape on the market.
