Disposable vapes are one on the most popular nicotine delivery systems with adult vapers. Their popularity is tied to three important attributes. The first is ease of use, they are ready to use out of the box. They do not require filling, are precharged and draw activated.
Disposable vapes also have great flavors, unlike those gas station prefilled vape pods they are not federally limited to tobacco flavors. Perhaps the main reason disposable vapes are so popular is that they can deliver satisfying performance. This is accomplished using potent nicotine salts.
Disposable vapes are vaping pared down to its simplest elements: flavor, vapor, and satisfaction. It was nic salts that helped disposable vapes transform from the rather unsatisfactory cigalikes of a decade ago to today’s rechargeable nic salt fueled daily drivers.
The key to disposable vapes is the use of nic salts, usually with a potency of 50mg. Nicotine salts have a lower pH level than freebase nicotine. They are manufactured by adding benzoic acid to regular freebase nicotine. This changes the molecular structure of the nicotine.
Nic salts can be added in any quantity to a vape juice. In fact, some manufacturers have lower nicotine, high-VG juices that use nic salts. But generally, nic salts are only used in more potent formulas. Likewise, you could in theory add a ton of freebase nicotine to a vape juice, in fact this was the only option during the days before mods, but freebase gets very harsh at strengths over 20mg.
Stronger nicotine strengths allow a small device without much wattage to generate a satisfying experience. The use of higher resistance coils and requiring minimal vapor production means that a disposable does not require a large battery, unlike say a vape mod which runs at high wattage, generates a ton of vapor (from lower nicotine freebase eJuices), and requires a large lithium ion battery or a pair of 18650s. Nicotine upgrades are again on the horizon for disposable vapes, this time it is H20 nicotine.
Aquios H20 Nicotine
Aquios Labs is the manufacturer of H20 nicotine. They point to increased bioavailability as an obvious advantage. As studies have shown nic salts cross the blood brain barrier more quickly already, the use of H20 nicotine coupled with nic salts seems like a perfect fit for disposable vapes.
Now it is time to clarify things a bit. H20 nicotine gets its name because it is vaping nicotine that does not require a VG/PG solution to vape. The actual nicotine in the case of H20 Nicotine disposables is still in the form of nicotine salts.
According to Aquios, “This means that nicotine is delivered to the bloodstream more efficiently, resulting in faster satisfaction than ever before.”
The Pastel Cartel and their Esco Bars lineup of disposable vapes has been an early adopter of water based nicotine. The revolutionary technology in question is called AQ30 nicotine and manufactured by Aquios labs. It enables water based vaping and supports Aquios e-liquids that contain as much as 30 percent water.
H20 Nicotine Features
What is H20 nicotine? Water is used in place of the traditional propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) formulas the form the backbone of traditional vape juices.
H20 nicotine is flexible enough to be adapted to a wide range of vaping styles and vape juice flavors. Currently, H20 Nicotine can be found in the line-up of Esco Bars H20 Nicotine disposable vapes.
Aquios is confident that their revolutionary technology delivers smoother vapor, better flavor, and a more satisfying experience. According to their website:
“PG and VG are both hygroscopic, which means they absorb water from the body. Glycerol is so hygroscopic that the volume of absorbed water can be larger than the original volume of glycerol used. Reducing PG and vegetable glycerin (VG) content reduces the dehydrating qualities of vapor, resulting in a more pleasant experience for transitioning smokers.”
A water based nicotine formula allows for water based vaping. According to Aquios Labs, this reduces irritation and the vapor is described as being smoother. According to their research, many combustible users find vaping to be harsh at first due to the quantity of vapor being produced. Vaping can also dry out sinuses and gums, an issue Aquios says H20 Nicotine addresses head on.
Perhaps the biggest question is performance. Aquios labs is certain that H20 nicotine delivers crisper flavor than conventional VG/PG vape juices.
Esco Bars Disposable Vapes
It is easy to see why Esco Bars Disposable Vapes are held in such high regard by adult vapers. They offer several models and even more flavor collections, but a common thread runs through all of them.
Esco Bars do not require filling, are draw activated, and work right out of the box. For e-liquid, they rely on nicotine salts. Almost every disposable on the market has a nicotine strength of 50mg/5%. They offer a classic disposable vape pens like the Esco Bar Mesh and Esco Bar 2500 that are not rechargeable but deliver plenty of performance. They also have the larger Esco Bars Mega and Esco Bars 6000.
Disposable vapes are more than just manufacturer estimated puff counts. Esco Bars are also famous for their excellent flavors. There is a lot of competition in the disposable vape arena. While every manufacturer has a peach ice, not all peach ice flavors are created equal. A rival brand may have a great alternative to your favorite mango Esco Bar, but experienced vapers always have a favorite.
But as noteworthy as the Pastel Cartel's flavor selection might be, the availability of H20 based nicotine in Esco Bars disposable vape pens might just be the biggest game changer.
Esco Bars H20 Nicotine Disposable Vapes
Their splashiest products might be the new H20 nicotine disposables, but Esco Bars has long been one of the heavy weights in disposable vaping. A product of Pastel Cartel, they offer a full selection of disposable vapes in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Esco Bars H20 6000
The Esco Bars H20 6000 generates an impressive 6000 puffs according to the manufacturer. This is possible due to an e-liquid capacity of 15ml. That is half of a bottle of nic salts and more than 20 folds more nic salts than are in a Juul pod (or five full boxes) of delicious flavor.
Despite this massive capacity, the Esco Bars H20 6000 is not an outsized device. It maintains a small footprint by placing the battery next to the vape juice reservoir. More importantly, the Esco Bars H20 is a rechargeable disposable vape. The advantage of using a rechargeable lithium ion battery is you do not need to engineer the device to have enough power to burn through 15ml of nic salts without a charge.
Unlike some rechargeable disposable vapes, it still has a large battery (1000mAh). This should be more than enough for a day or more of typical vaping. For comparison, the Smok Novo family of vape pod kits have 800mAh batteries and the Juul has less than 250mAh.
The build quality and appearance of the Esco Bars H20 6000 is also great. It has a fashionable and hard plastic shell, well-formed mouthpiece, and a snug USB-C charge port.
Esco Bars H20 6000 Flavors
The Pastel Cartel worked hard to identify the ideal flavors for their water based nicotine. The nicotine strength is the standard 5%/50mg. There are several of the sweet flavors that most adult vapers prefer.
Blueberry Bubble Gum Esco Bars H20 6000
Blueberry is great flavor for nic salts, which is why some form of it is found in almost every disposable vape lineup. It is most frequently found in Blue Razz and Blue Raspberry Ice formulas. The iced versions being particularly popular as the cool menthol cuts through the sweetness. But the precise flavors allowed by H20 nicotine really shine in this one. No icy shortcuts are required, the authentic bubblegum flavor notes counteract the sweetness and make the Blueberry Bubble Gum Esco Bars H20 6000 a great all-day vape.
Vanilla Custard Esco Bars H20 6000
Custard flavors were extremely popular in vape mod designs and with cloud chasers. Yet they also work extremely well for MTL vaping and nic salts. They require a deft touch, which the Pastel Cartel demonstrates, providing authentic vanilla notes to augment the smooth mouth feel of the Vanilla Custard Esco Bars H20 6000 and take advantage of what Aquios Labs views as the biggest advantages of H20 nicotine.
Green Apple Esco Bars H20 6000
Green Apple, as both a confection and Granny Smith flavor, is a consistently great flavor in vaping. There are the refreshing attributes of apple and these blend with sour confection notes to make for a balanced vaping experience. Whilst disposables generally have great flavor, and green apple is usually a good option, there was still a detectable lightness and clarity in the Green Apple Esco Bars H20 6000 vape pen by Pastel Cartel.
Strawberry Milkshake Esco Bars H20 6000
H20 Nicotine just works when merged with creamy flavors. The Strawberry Milkshake Esco Bars H20 6000 vape pen is a classic strawberries and cream flavor. This throwback vape juice flavor has never fallen out of style, whether you prefer a direct lung vape mod or the taut draw activation of the Esco Bars H20 6000 disposable vape.
Mango Lassi Esco Bars H20 6000
The Mango Lassi Esco Bars H20 6000 has familiar mango notes but adds in a creamy element to round out the flavor profile. The creamy elements of the mango lassi beverage really pop in every puff.
Esco Bars H20 2500
The Esco Bars H20 2500 is a smaller disposable vape design. It generates 2500 puffs and does not require recharging. A classic vape pen design, it offers great flavor with a mesh coil and great utility for a vaper on the go. The battery capacity is 1000mAh and the nic salt capacity in 6ml
