Vaping has become really popular in Calgary. As more people pick up vaping, a big question pops up: Are those one-time-use vapes, also known as disposable vapes, really worth the money? Let's dive into this and see if they're actually costing you more than you think.

What Are Disposable Vapes?

A disposable vape is a small gadget that comes ready to use right out of the box. You use it until it runs out, then you throw it away. This is different from rechargeable vapes, which you can refill with liquid and charge up again to use multiple times.

The Cost of Convenience

At first glance, buying a disposable vape might seem cheaper than getting a rechargeable vape kit. Disposables are ready to go and don’t need any setup. That’s really handy for a lot of people. But is this convenience worth it?

Long-Term Expenses

Let's do some math. Think about how long a disposable vape lasts you and how often you need to buy a new one. Now, compare that to the cost of a rechargeable vape and how much the e-liquid or pods cost. Over time, you might find that disposables cost you more money.

Environmental Impact

There's also the trash issue. Every time you finish with a disposable vape, it goes in the garbage. This isn’t great for our planet. So, using disposables means you’re not just spending more money over time, but you’re also adding to environmental waste.

Pros and Cons of Disposable Vapes


  • Super easy to use.
  • No need to refill or charge.


  • Can get expensive over time.
  • Bad for the environment because of all the waste.

Making the Right Choice for You

Think about what’s important to you. How much do you vape? Do you care about having less waste? Depending on your answers, you might find rechargeable vapes a better fit. If you’re unsure, we at Vape Zone can help you figure it out. We’ve got lots of options to choose from.

So, are disposable vapes draining your wallet? It looks like they might be, especially when you add up the costs over time and think about their impact on the environment. Choosing the right vape can save you money and help the planet.
