You may have come across the intriguing claims of 2400, 3000, or even 3500 puff disposables, and your first thought might be, “How is this legal in the UK?” Let’s delve into the regulations surrounding big puff disposable vapes and explore how recent models navigate these rules.
Before we unveil the secrets behind the legality of these high-puff disposables, let’s quickly review the existing regulations in the UK for disposable vapes.
Nicotine Content: E-Liquids and disposable vapes in the UK are limited to a maximum nicotine content of 20mg/ml (2%).
Tank Size: The tank or pod size for vapes, including disposables, is capped at 2ml of E-Liquid, providing approximately 600 puffs depending on usage.
Battery Size: While there’s currently no limit on vape battery capacity in the UK, disposable vape manufacturers typically match the battery capacity to the amount of E-Liquid to prevent burnt hits from vaping an empty disposable.
The TPD regulations on tank and bottle sizes don’t apply to nicotine-free vapes or E-Liquids. This exemption allows manufacturers to produce disposables without nicotine in any size they desire. The Elux Legend 3500, for instance, boasts up to 3500 puffs, making it legal in the UK. However, it’s crucial to be cautious, as some non-compliant disposables may contain nicotine and should be avoided.
The IVG 2400 takes a unique approach to TPD regulations. While it is technically disposable, it utilizes a prefilled vape pod system to work around the restrictions. The device comes with four 2ml pods that users can slot into the chamber, allowing them to vape each pod until it’s empty before moving on to the next. This clever workaround complies with TPD regulations on tank size and provides a user-friendly experience.
The upcoming Zap! Instafill disposable introduces another clever TPD-compliant workaround. With a rechargeable battery and a 500mAh capacity, it can provide up to 3500 puffs per device. The design includes a 2ml pod on top, and the device comes with a 10ml bottle of liquid. By utilizing a smart vacuum pump mechanism, the Instafill automatically fills the pod with a simple press of a button. This ingenious solution ensures compliance with TPD regulations while offering a more eco-friendly option than traditional disposables.
