. I've always been a bit torn on disposables. The reason behind that is, of course, the waste factor. I know too many people who buy them and throw them away like they're regular trash afterward. Disposable electronic cigarettes
have a place though. If you haven't vaped before and are looking to switch it's a far cheaper alternative to getting a full starter kit, and with established vapers, they make a great emergency back up (keep one in my car at all times for that very reason).
On to the important details of the WOW Vapor King Disposable. The WOW Vapor King Disposable is available in tobacco and menthol e-cigarette flavors, and both come in two strengths: regular (2.6% nicotine) and strong (3.6% nicotine). Size and shape are literally just like a standard cigarette. They're roughly 3 1/2" long, and weigh slightly more than an analog but not by much (maybe an ounce). The "filter" end (built in carto) is flexible, not as squishy as cigarette's, but close. The ash endcap glows green instead of red which is the most glaring difference. The VK disposable has a very papery feel. After I did a test run and took it apart (something no one should try at home) I have a lot more info on the disposables.
The battery cell is not rechargeable, so only one test run could be completed. It's a 165mah 3.7v battery. As for the coil, this is a first for V4L. The WOW Vapor King Disposable uses a horizontal coil. The first one I tested measured 2.4ohms on the multi, second was 2.5ohms, same for the third. So I would venture to guess they're in the 2.4-2.6ohm range.
The switch mechanism borrows the same mic set up from the Vapor Zeus, which is a very good thing. It's quite responsive. It measured run time using 4-second puffs and a clicker. Final puff count on the first run was 243 before the green led started blinking (or 972 seconds worth) for a total use time of 16.2 minutes. The second run was 241 minutes (964 seconds or 16.0667 minutes). Not bad for a disposable at all.
The vaping flavor
in the regular tobacco is the new Smilin Tobacco flavor, same for the menthol (Smilin Tobacco Menthol). I will say it's a very rich full tobacco taste on both counts.
One more important thing to note. In the instructional insert, it states "Your WOW Vapor King electronic cigarette contains a battery that must be disposed of properly in accordance with state and local requirements." This made me happy to see, and hope that everyone who picks one up follows it.
