Posh Plus versus Posh versus Zaero Disposable
The fast growing popularity of disposable vapes has demonstrated a fundamental truth about vaping: most adult vapers are just looking for a satisfying, flavorful and convenient way to get nicotine.
Convenience is priority number one, especially for smokers looking to make the switch to vaping. And there is simply no easier way to vape than with a disposable ecig.
Flavors matter too, as adults have shown a strong preference for dessert and fruit themed vapes. It is in this area that the newest generation of disposables excel. Thanks to potent and flavorful nic salt ejuices juices, disposable vapes can easily serve as a primary vaping device for a sophisticated adult vaper.
Most impressively, there is no big financial penalty to be paid. Disposable vapes are priced competitively with the top selling prefilled vape pod kits on the market today.
They compete directly with the prefilled vape pod market pioneered by Juul, check out our deep “The Truth and Technology Behind Juul and Nic Salts Revealed” for an examination of how potent nic salts changed the expectations and preferences of vapers.
Posh Plus versus Posh versus Zaero
There is a lot of competition in the disposable vape market. Here is a quick overview of the Posh Plus and how it compares to the original Posh and the Zaero Disposable
The Posh Disposable was an early entrant in the nic salt disposable field. In our comparison of the best disposable vapes, the Posh earned rave reviews. Its tight draw and sharp flavors impressed. Moreover, Posh managed to squeeze 1.8ml of ejuice into every disposable. This is over twice the capacity of a Juul pod and made this disposable a less expensive option for convenience and value minded vapers.
The original Posh is available in the following flavors: Mango, Frost, Blueberry Ice, Frozen Grape, Cotton Candy, Pink Lemonade, Lush Ice, Pineapple Slush, Cool Melon and Cool Mint.
The heavy emphasis on minty flavors is a testament to the appeal this style of authentic hitting device has with heavy smokers. The Posh has a notably tighter draw than the Posh Plus and a solid lineup of unique flavors. These will probably dictate which device you prefer.
We did an in-depth review of the Zaero Disposable earlier this month and examined all of the flavors available. To recap, although the Zaero shares similar technology to the original Posh there are a couple crucial differences. The major difference is that the Zaero is available in four nicotine strengths, including zero. The available nic strengths of 0, 1.8, 3.0 and 5.0 percent give the Zaero much more flexibility than the Posh and make it a great alternative to lower nicotine Juul pods and refillable vape pod systems
The other major difference is that the Zaero offers an entirely unique lineup of flavors. The variety of flavor profiles is greater still, because there is not as much of an emphasis on menthol and mint infused ejuices. With the Zaero your flavor choices are Sweet Orange, Menthol, Banana, Blue Razz, Blueberry Lemonade, Tobacco, and Chocolate. My personal favorite is the sweet and bright Blue Razz, which is amazingly balanced with notes of tart fruit layered atop the classic summer treat. It brings a coolness without the use of menthol. The creamy Banana is also an impressive flavor.
The Zaero matches the Posh in ejuice capacity and puff count. If you are looking for lower nicotine options in a nic salt disposable ecig, the Zaero is your best option by far. Compared to the Posh Plus, the Zaero has a tighter draw and sharper flavors. This may be the result of fewer menthol/mint options, but the difference is notable.
Posh Plus Disposable Vape
Despite the success and popularity of the Posh, there is no denying that there is a lot of competition on the market. In response, Posh went back to the drawing board and the result is the Posh Plus. It has a slightly more wide open hit and bit more vapor production than the Posh and Zaero.
The first thing you will notice about the Posh Plus is that there is not a lot of shared DNA here. The Posh Plus is a cylindrical design. It has a tapered mouth piece and a lot more heft than the original Posh. This weight difference is largely due to the massive 450mAh battery. This is larger than just about any prefilled pod system and is competitive with many refillable vape pod kits.

But the Posh Plus is more than just a Super-Sized Posh. The original Posh shared the form factor of a Juul, but the Posh Plus is looks more like a short ecig. The mouthpiece is shaped like many of the prefilled kits on the market but is narrower due to the cylindrical shape of the Posh Plus. The plastic base has a rough surface. This is a callback to the original cig-a-likes and it lights up red like the lit end of cigarette.
The differences are more than skin deep. The Posh Plus has an increased ejuice capacity of 2ml and a larger battery. What this change means for the vaper is a device that is rated for an astounding 500 puffs. This can be attributed to the battery, as the capacity is only 0.2ml than the original Posh.
With a nic strength of 6 percent, this should get the average smoker through several days and is roughly akin to two packs of cigarettes.
Posh Plus Flavors
We have already reviewed the Zaero Disposable Flavors in our deep dive, but the unique Posh Plus flavors warrant closer examination. The lack of overlap with the original Posh is impressive. The lineup is also stacked with menthol/mints with one exception. And that is an outstanding one.
Cream Brulee Posh Plus is perhaps the Best Juul Crème Alternative. Rich and velvety, it delivers the vanilla and custard richness that you expect. Notes of caramelized sugar are evident throughout. There is a bit of throat kick with Posh Plus Cream on exhale but the inhale is silky smooth. The complexity of this flavor is a marvelous and really captures the upscale French dessert which inspired it.
Tobacco Menthol Posh Plus is an ideal disposable for menthol smokers. Rather than a straight mint flavor, like the excellent Zaero Menthol, it also aspires to capture the essence of bold and rich tobacco. The flavor is remarkably authentic and perfect for heavy smokers looking to make the switch to a disposable.
Fireball Posh Plus is hard candy, cinnamon flavored disposable vape.But don’t worry about it being too spicy to vape. The cinnamon is tempered with an icy glaze of cooling mint. The result is a fascinatingly balanced vape. It really captures the red hot candies flavor, but leans much more heavily on sweetness than heat. The cinnamon a bit feisty, as expected, and the result is a great all day vape.
Minty Berry Posh Plus takes the classic mixed berry vape flavor profile, one of the most popular on the market, and adds a dash of menthol. The combination is nearly irresistible as the sweetness never overwhelms and the iciness enhances the fruity flavor tones.
Pina Colada Posh Plus is an outstanding beverage vape and a testament to the impressive flavors available in disposable vapes. The sweet pineapple and creamy coconut quite accurately replicate the flavor of this legendary tropical drink. The fruit notes are sophisticated rather than sugary. The unique flavor elements complement each other perfectly, just like in a real Pina Colada.
Frosted Apple Posh Plus may be inspired by the most wholesome of fruits but it has a frosty edge that adult vapers will adore. The complexity of the ripe apple flavor is impressive and the nic salt smoothness brings out an amazing depth of flavor. The frosty edge of menthol is not only cooling but adds a sharpness to the fruit dominated inhale. This is a perfect vape for fruit lovers and fans of menthol vapes.
Frozen Strawberry manages to improve upon the the sweet and refreshing delights of a great strawberry vape juice. The mint is mild and works well with a foundation that is closer to a fruit than a candy. The inhale is sweet and tart, while the exhale is icy cold. The complexity of strawberry vapes never ceases to amaze but Posh Plus Frozen Strawberry really benefits from the bold winter chill.
The Posh Plus provides an upgrade in battery and juice capacity. The draw is not as tight but the vapor production is slightly better. It may all boil down to your flavor preferences at the end of the day. But if you desire to reduce your nicotine level or 6 percent nic strength is too much, the Zaero Disposable remains the clear winner.
