If you’re planning a weekend getaway, and don’t want to take the daily-driver with you, why not grab yourself a couple of disposables? These single-use devices are a great alternative for when you want to keep your reusable device out of harm's way!

The IPLAY Max disposable vape pen offers 2500 puffs of deliciously fruity flavour - easily getting you through a weekend on the town, the beach, or a few days at the office! There’s 12 amazing flavours to choose from; we highly recommend the Blue Raspberry Lemon, Sour Apple Melon and Sour Raspberry - each are sure to quench that summer thirst! 

Simply remove the device from its packaging and inhale from the mouthpiece to start vaping! These devices come pre-filled with e-liquid and are pre-charged for convenient use! Wherever you are this summer, please be sure to responsibly dispose of your single-use device once it’s run out of e-liquid!

Enviro Disposable Vape Device

If you’re looking to cut-back on your nicotine intake, we recommend picking up the new Enviro Disposable next time you’re in-store! Housed within a cardboard shell, the Enviro is considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly vapes on the market. This low nicotine-strength device is perfect for enjoying on-the-go, or for when your daily-driver is temporarily out of commission!

With eight fruity and unique flavours to choose from, available in 20mg salt-nicotine, the Enviro allows you to enjoy mouth-watering flavour in a convenient, low-strength, pen-style device! Our VAPELAB favourites include the subtly-sweet and floral Cherry Lemonade, the deliciously juicy Strawberry Watermelon and the mouth-watering Jungle Juice!

Though the Enviro is made up of recyclable components, it’s important to note that an in-tact Enviro device can not be placed in your general roadside recycling! Instead, each Enviro comes with a pamphlet that outlines how this device can be broken down and appropriately recycled - both the lithium-ion battery and food-grade silicone tips will need to recycled through specific battery and silicone recycling programs. If you’re located in Wellington, you can find more information about these types of programs here, and here.

Sadboy Iced

Sadboy e-liquids make happy vapers! Available in iced and non-iced variants, and delicious either way, the Sadboy line is packed with fruity flavour! The Sadboy line was temporarily out of commission during updates to New Zealand’s vaping regulations back in August of this year - we’re glad to see you’ve welcomed them back with open arms! 

Rainbow Blood Iced
This fruity fusion is a VAPELAB favourite! Chock-full of exotic and tropical fruits, the Rainbow Blood e-liquid is a complex flavour with a lot of depth. Fresh and juicy without ice, deliciously frosty with ice - can you pick out all the fruits that go into this heavenly fruit punch?

Punch Berry Ice
Summer in a bottle! This delicious mix of fresh raspberries, zesty lemonade and sweet mixed-berries is going to be your next daily-driver! Iced, or non-iced, Punch Berry from Sadboy is going to cool down that Summer sun!

Put a smile on your face with the Sadboy nicotine salts and freebases!
