What is the best disposable vape brand?

There is no overall winning brand. In reality, the best brand is the one you like the most. Clearly, some brands are more popular than others, but every vaper has their own unique vaping preferences, and not everyone likes the same things. 

Nicotine strength, throat hit, flavour, device style, reliability, consistency, cost, etc., all have a bearing on choices and preferences. While all disposable vapes do the same thing, each brand does things slightly differently, so you need to try a few to determine which suits you the best.

How to choose the right brand

The best way to find the perfect disposable is to do your research first, think about what you want from your vape experience, and then test a few different devices until you find the one that works for you. 

If you are new to vaping, this can be a challenge. Luckily, we've taken the hard work out of this for you. Read our brand buying guide below to discover the top UK disposable vape brands, who the brands are suited to, and why, plus some helpful tips to help you decide.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Best Disposable Vape / Vape Brand?

The best disposable vape brand really depends on your personal preferences. Every vaper has unique criteria, whether it's stronger nicotine, rich flavours, compact size, affordability, or a combination of factors, and all brands approach these things differently.

What are the safest disposable Vapes / Vape Brands?

While complete vape safety is not guaranteed, you can minimise risk by purchasing products from more established brands such as Elf, Geek, SKE, Lost Mary, Vuse and Hexa.


These brands have huge research and development budgets, use quality materials and construction methods, and conduct thorough safety evaluations on their products before launching, making them a much safer proposition.

What Disposable Vapes brands are legal in the UK?

Some brands manufacture product ranges that are not legal in the UK but can be bought elsewhere in the world. To avoid any doubt when purchasing, only approved products published on the MHRA website are legal to buy in the UK.


To check the legality of a vape: 

  1. Visit the MHRA's website and search for the product. If a product cannot be found, ask a reputable retailer to confirm its approval.

  2. Check the product packaging to ensure it doesn't contain over 2ml of e-liquid or exceed 2% / 20mg of nicotine. If it claims to deliver more than 500-600 puffs and has more than 2% nicotine, there is a high chance it will be illegal.

  3. Validate your product is genuine by visiting the manufacturer's website and using their product checking service.
