The modern version of disposable e cigarettes was invented by Hon Lik as an alternative to traditional combustible cigarettes. The idea was to create a more discrete way of consuming nicotine without the combustion and without the foreign chemicals often found in traditional cigarette products. One of the earliest versions of a disposable e cigarette was the Ruyan E Cigar which was released in China in 2004.
So what exactly is a disposable e cigarette? A #disposable e cigarette is made to replicate the feel and shape of a traditional cigarette but instead of containing dried tobacco leaves within, a disposable e cigarette contains a cartridge of nicotine-based #Eliquid which is heated by an internal battery that converts its power output into wattage that heats up elements and creates vapor which is then inhaled.
Unlike full #vaping set ups that include a box mod and #atomizer, a disposable cannot be refilled and has a lifespan of between 300 and 1500 puffs of use. Some of the pros for using a disposable e cigarette are:
Low cost in the short run
Ease of use
Easy to purchase
