Disposable vapes emerged as viable alternative to prefilled vape pods over a year ago. Not coincidentally, they gained a major foothold when Juul began to pull the flavors that adults prefer from the market. This trend was accelerated with the federal ban on vape pod flavors and left disposables as the natural choice for millions of adults seeking ash and smoke free cigarette alternatives in flavors other than tobacco.
Vapor4Life carries a huge selection of disposable vapes in order to provide adult vapers access to the bright and buoyant flavors they prefer. As outlined in Dr. Farsalino’s study of adult vapers, the vast majority prefer dessert and fruit flavors to tobacco. By carrying multiple brands, you can always find the flavor profile you prefer. There are dozens of great mango, lychee, blue razz and mint disposables on the market and we offer you plenty of options.
Technologically speaking, there is not a lot to set the Cali Bar apart from the Puff Bar, Oro Bar, Zaero, Blow Stix, Boss Vape or a dozen other stick style disposables. It competes in the vaping market place on the base of its flavors. If you are looking for a more innovative or longer lasting disposable, check out the Sea Air, Posh Plus, Puff Bar Plus or the Puff Flow, the latter of which has adjustable airflow and a 4ml ejuice capacity.
But Cali Bars are able to compete with the disposable vape heavy weights because of their great flavor and a nearly unmatched selection of lower nicotine options. Cali Bar has ten different flavors offered in both 2 and 5 percent nicotine. And these are basically a list of disposable vaping’s greatest hits.
Cali Bar Flavors
You will notice that the Cali Bar flavors offered in 2 percent are some of the most popular nic salt flavor profiles ever formulated. Here is a rundown of the lower nicotine Cali Bar disposable vapes.
Banana is fast becoming a nic salt staple. The classic banana flavor is creamy with the exact basic flavor that you expect. The menthol provides a welcome relief to the sweetness. Check out our comparison of the Best Banana Disposable Vapes for an overview of the competition. Zaero Banana is the primary rival as it comes in four nic strengths: 0, 1.8, 3.0 and 5 percent nic strength.
Honeycomb Berry Ice Cali Bar is a classic blend of freshly picked berries and tropical flavors topped off with a dollop of sweet honey. The big honey taste does not drown out the bold fruit flavor notes but instead enhances the vaping experience. The subtle interaction of tart and sweet makes for a great all-day vape. This isn't your typical syrupy fruit vape, the honey sweetness is milder and more refreshing.
Ripe and distinct, strawberry has all the elements you need for a great vaping flavor. Everyone knows the strawberry flavor and it works great with the smooth nic salt ejuice. Each Cali Bars Strawberry has an ejuice capacity of 1.3ml, which is good for a couple hundred puffs.
All the elements that make Strawberry such a delightful vape are accentuated with the addition of icy menthol. Cold and bright, Cali Bars Strawberry Ice will appeal to fans of fruit and menthol vapes.
Juul Mango is gone. If you are looking for a great Juul Mango alternative, Cali Disposable Mango Nectar is a great place to start. The smooth drawing disposable has great flavor and contains nearly twice as much vape juice as a Juul pod, 1.3ml versus 0.7ml. The flavor is top shelf too. The mango notes are balanced and authentic. There is more ripeness than sugary syrup flavor but it still retains the brightness of fresh fruit.
The iced fruit game of Cali Bars is particularly strong, as they have taken excellent fruity nic salt flavors and frozen them with a blast of cool menthol. Mango Nectar Ice is a great example. The Mango Nectar Cali Bar flavor has more than enough flavor to stand on its own. But adding a sheen of frosty menthol draws out all of the complex fruit elements and tempers the tart and sweet elements with a cold, complex exhale. Mango disposables vapes are in a highly competitive market. Check out our feature on the best mango disposable vapes for more information.
Another rock solid fruit-menthol blend, Peach Ice Cali Bar melds the syrupy and unmistakable flavor of perfectly ripe peach with the cooling elements of icy menthol.
A sweet yet elevated flavor, Cali Bars Blue Razz is packed with mixed berry flavors and the candied notes of that mysterious blue candy known as Blue Razz. Never too sweet, Blue Razz works perfectly as a nic salt in a tight drawing mouth to lung disposable. Blu Razz is a beloved flavor and the competition is heated. For a complete overview, check out our deep-dive into the Best Blu Razz Disposable Vapes. The natural rivals of the Blue Razz Cali Bar are the Blu Razz Zaero Disposable Vape (available in four nic strengths) and the 2 percent nic strength Blu Razz Puff Bar Disposable Vape.
As well as Blue Razz works in a disposable, it is made even more alluring and versatile when blended with a sharp and pure menthol. The result of this marriage, Blue Razz Ice, is a brilliant menthol fruit blend. It retains the complex berry and candied elements but balances the flavor profile with gusts of icy chill.
Ever since production of Juul Mint ceased in anticipation of a federal ban on flavored vape pods, ejuice and disposable vape manufacturers have scrambled to fill the void and attract the millions of adult vapers who prefer mint and menthol flavors over every other. The competition is fierce but the Sweet Mint Cali Bar deserves a shout out as one of the best Juul Mint alternatives. A more spearmint themed flavor, Cali Bar Sweet Mint it is reminiscent of the flavor of chewing gum but without the artificial bite. But there is still plenty of cool mint flavor on both inhale and exhale.
Disposable vapes are able to provide delicious flavor and satisfying performance through the use of nic salts. Before nic salts hit the scene, there was an upper limit to how much nicotine could be added to an ejuice before it became intolerably harsh. This meant that smaller, low power devices simply could not provide what adult ex-smokers were looking for. Check out our feature, intro to nic salts, for more information on the science behind ejuice.
There are several major types of disposable ecigs on the market today, although larger and more innovative designs are beginning to surface. But the fact remains that most disposable vapes are either a stick style disposable vape or a disposable mini vape. The stick style disposable relies on a cotton polyfill and these are generally about 4 inches in length. Usually there is not a large mouthpiece and they are a nearly perfect rectangle, but there are exceptions.
With a 280mAh battery, stick disposables generally hold between 1.2 and 1.3ml of ejuice, although the Zaero and Posh both hold significantly more: 1.8ml. Despite the similarities, there are different price points. The Blazer Bar fared quite well in our comparison of lower cost disposable vapes. Despite the listed ejuice capacity of 0.7ml, it did not seem to suffer much in the longevity department during our comparison. Most lower priced disposables are of the mini vape variety, such as the Mojo. These store their ejuice in a pod that is positioned parallel to the battery. This reduces the length to less than 3 inches, while retaining the same sized battery and only sacrificing a few tenths of a milliliter on average.
Disposable vapes are extremely popular but the combination of refillable vape pod kits and bottled nic salt ejuice will always be a more cost effective way to vape. If you are looking to save money and enjoy nic salts, consider switching to a Vapor Zeus, the efficient Vapor Titan Clearomizer or a refillable vape pod kit like the Smok Novo 2.
Lower Nicotine Disposable Vapes
The vast bulk of nic salt disposable vapes were only available in nic strengths ranging from 5 to 6 percent. While ejuices of this strength certainly are popular with adult vapers, our goal at Vapor4Life has always been to help smokers switch to vaping and for vapers to reduce the nicotine level of their preferred ejuice with the goal of a nicotine and vape free lifestyle.
Obviously, disposable vapes that are only available in 5 or 6 percent strength address only the first of these goals. But starting late last year, disposable vapes with lower nicotine strengths began to hit the market. The first of these was the Zaero Disposable Vape. It is available in four nic strengths: 0, 1.8, 3.0 and 5.0 percent.
As more disposable brands released lower nicotine alternatives, we were able to compare some of the contenders in our deep-dive into the Best Lower Nicotine Disposable Vapes. There is a surprising amount of competition. The beloved Puff Bar Disposable offers five of their most popular flavors in 2 percent nic strength. We review them all in our detailed examination of Lower Nicotine Puff Bar Disposables.
Ziip ZPods also have released several of their flavors in multiple nic strengths ranging from 3 to 6 percent, but the other major player in the lower nicotine disposable market is Cali Bar.
