Rechargeable and disposable vaporizers are some of the hottest trends within the industry. According to marketing trends, the year 2022 is set to develop into larger tanks and longer-lasting batteries. Still, there are a number of reasons why someone would go with a disposable vape pen or a rechargeable one.
Let's take a look at how this all got started and which one might be the best fit for you!
Back in 2017, CBD became federally legalized. This led to everyone and their grandmother finding the right way to sell a product to a mass of people who were still on the fence. Sure, you had edibles like brownies, cookies, and gummies, but you didn't have easy-to-use products. How are you supposed to guess how much of the brownie you're supposed to take? Take too much and you really feel the effects, take too little and you feel nothing at all.
On top of that, you had an industry where it was marketed as a "lifestyle" or "health and wellness". Which made selling tinctures the #1 priority amongst retailers and distributors. Instead of smoking, you could simply place a few drops of CBD under your tongue and you would be good to go for the rest of the day.
While the option to smoke CBD was on the table, it still wasn't primarily picked up amongst new users. There was dry-herb that you could purchase at any smoke shop, but the quality was bad, and knowing most smoke shops, the products weren't moved around as much as they should have been.
With retailers seeing an uptick in alternative methods, vaping still maintained a high profile amongst common users. The results of that data showcased that a pre-filled cartridge on a battery with a pre-disposed lifespan was a good way to help people make the switch.
Disposable vape cartridges were considered a big trend by that point. Around the same time, many people were learning how to make concentrates in their basement/kitchen. When they found out how relatively easy it was, they would go ahead and purchase disposable cartridges. This unfortunately left room for a lot of health and safety concerns. By the time the news caught around of these things, many were skeptical of the quality that they were vaping. While the sales of black market vapes went down, the sale of legal-market vaporizers increased. Disposables were the best way to provide CBD in an affordable and long-term method.
Unfortunately, they weren't the greatest devices.
There were many reports of vape batteries not holding the charge to fully vape all of the contents of the cartridge. Many businesses had to think of new ways to continue to sell their product all the while avoiding the issues associated with them.
This is where the idea of a rechargeable disposable comes into play.
While the first wave of disposables hit the market well enough, the second wave improved upon the issues of the first. The biggest added feature was the ability to recharge your device if the battery died before you inhaled all of the contents. By adding a micro-USB to the bottom of the vaporizer, users would be able to hit their pen longer and finally get that last little bit out of the cartridge.
On top of that, having a rechargeable device meant that you could make the size of the contents even bigger.
The original concept of this was used for e-cigarettes. By giving people longer hits with the ability to recharge, then they were able to go for longer periods without buying a product. In the world of nicotine, this wasn't necessarily the best case. In the world of concentrates, this was awesome.
The industry has evolved over the past couple of years. Having a rechargeable vape that can last you much longer is really becoming the selling point for many enthusiasts.
When it comes down to it, both technologies have fused to create a throw-away vaporizer than has the long-lasting functionality of a rechargeable vape pen.
When these came together in the early 2020s, the ability to fill with larger tanks became more apparent. This follows current marketing trends throughout the industry. Users want more out of their purchase, even if they have to spend a little more to get it.
Where the market was sold on .5mL and 1.0mL vape cartridges it is now moving towards either 1.0 or 2.0mL cartridges.
At the end of the day, these products are redefining newer technologies and newer market trends among users. With their sleek, simple and easy-to-use design, They are providing the best outcome for the best price and consumers agree that they are becoming the most popular in the vape industry.
