From this modest column on our blog, we will be real with ourselves and open with our customers, to whom we are inexpressibly thankful for their devotion and nice remarks about Fog it vape and to whom we owe ourselves.
At Fog it Vape shop, the short answer to the issue of whether a disposable Pod is worth it is NO.
Disposable pods are a terrible product for vaping, for many reasons that I will highlight for you in this paragraph, as we have spent months testing disposables from many manufacturers and getting samples of this sort of device.
These disposable pods transport vaping back to the year 2023, when all of the first vaping equipment was subpar, the tastes were bland and bordering on unpleasant, and the cost was exorbitant.
Why do single-use pods imply vaping in that way?
These are very subpar products, and the flavors they come in are also of lower quality than the ones we already have. Not to mention, because they are disposable and made of plastic and electronics, they are also very polluting. Furthermore, they are also incredibly pricey.
As a result, these gadgets have minimal effect on quitting smoking but have great impact on other side effects, which I will discuss below.
Using nicotine salts and the Pod Open System gesture in opposition to a Disposable Pod
The store employee on duty will want to poke you because of the item’s low price and countless puffs, which is one of the things that might draw the most attention.
Nothing could be further from the truth; these disposable systems are limited to 2ml, so you can vape with it for 8 hours.
2ml is a pitiful amount of consumption for both novice and experienced vapers who use the pod system; it will force you to buy a disposable pod every day or, at the very least, every two days (if you only consume this type of device).
I’ll give you a brief sample of a 30-day usage with just 1ml per day in both pod models (although there will always be more).

We will need to purchase a pod kit, which includes two refill pods, in order to cover a month’s worth of use. We estimate that the refill’s useful life will be between 7-8 days, depending on the beverage.
Three 10ml bottles of nicotine salts will be purchased for the average daily use of 1ml; their cost ranges from $14.99 – $139.99.
A Disposable pods
With this type of setup, you’ll need to purchase roughly 15 disposable pods for a month of exclusive consumption; generously, we’ll make an average of $14.99 – $139.99 because the cost of the disposable pods fluctuates from 14$ to 139.99$.
30 days disposable pod: $14.99 – $139.99 (not counting the fact that you must continue buying a disposable one every 2 days after this month approximately if you only use this system).
As a result, given that it costs three times as much as a regular pod, the disposable’s price is not a benefit.
So, if I pay three times as much for a disposable, would it perform significantly better than regular pods?
Unfortunately, the functionality of the disposable item, the refills, and the flavors is far inferior to that of a typical pod.
Will there be any benefit? No, the only benefit I can see is financial for the business and the manufacturer who were able to sell them.
Personal judgment and findings
Even if what I’ve spoken to you is already extremely scandalous, it’s far from the worst; an adult who is familiar with this system and vaping will not be duped.
An adult who has never vaped but wants to “sneak” a disposable because they’ve seen it on social media or because of the aggressive marketing for these products will buy it because they’ll see that it costs more than smoking and since the experience isn’t satisfying either, they’ll keep smoking unless they’re really trying to quit.
Perhaps research alternative formulae, although objectively that percentage is low and going back to tobacco is the easier option.
However, being bad is not the most concerning aspect either, as Fog It Vape shops near me does not sell this kind of gadget and for the time being there is not much adult demand for them.
The issue arises, though, if kids have been coming into our stores to ask for them for the past two weeks.
Of course, they are politely informed that sales to minors are prohibited, but if we spoke with them to find out more about this product, their responses about the design, their appearance on social media influencers, or the fact that they are disposable and parents dislike them would catch our attention.
They also mentioned that kids use it in schools and parks, which makes it clear that we have a serious issue if we continue with our sales philosophy of “anything goes” rather than understanding that we sell very complex products that primarily reduce the harm caused by smoking.
Disposable pods are a device that, in 90% of cases, contains 20% more nicotine salts than a non-smoker, and even more so if you are a minor, it can result in adverse effects.
