Frequently Asked Questions

Disposable vapes, like other vape kits, are perfectly safe when used correctly. There’s even a case to me made that disposables are safer than other vapes; as they require no setup and are ready to use, there’s less margin for human error. 

In addition, disposable vapes are draw-activated: this means that the battery only activates when you puff on the device, and automatically switches off when not in use. Thus, there’s no risk of the device accidentally switching on while stored or otherwise not in use.

These are the key points to note in regards to disposable vape safety:

●All MOTI products sold around the world and in South Africa is MHRA-approved(look out for the CE sign on your vape)
●Draw-activated and use a button free design; prevent accidental power up
●Completely sealed device; cannot be disassembled, this prevents any leakage
●Closed pod system; non refillable tank. no risk of improperly filling or reinstallin

As disposable vapes are becoming increasingly widespread, a few common questions have started to crop up —not just for new users who are looking to quit smoking, but also for prior vapers curious about how these devices stack up against standard vape kits.Luckily, most disposable vapes are pretty similar to each other from a technical perspective. So, chances are, whatever queries you have regarding your vape, they’ll be the same as most peoples’, and the solutions will hold true for most devices. 

As the name indicates, disposable vapes are disposable. So, while their ready-to-use design makes them more convenient than other vape kits —requiring no initial filling or charging —it also means they cannot be re-used. 

The simple answer is: no, you cannot refill or recharge disposable vapes. 

Disposable vapes are closed systems; the devices themselves are fully sealed, and cannot be taken apart. 

You absolutely should not attempt to take apart your disposable vape in an attempt to refill it; it’s a pointless hassle, it won’t work, and will leave you with nothing but an extra mess to clean up.

While disposable vapes have a shorter lifespan than other vapes by design, there are still some precautions you should take to avoid drastically shortening your product’s life span. 

Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures (either heat or cold). Never allow your disposable to become submerged in water, and avoid exposing it to debris, dust, and damp in general.

As mentioned, all disposable vape pens are draw-activated, meaning that they turn on when you puff on them. 

If you draw on your vape and nothing seems to happen, it means the device has reached the end of it’s lifespan and needs to be disposed of (in a responsible and eco-conscious manner, of course). 

This will occur either when the battery runs out of power, or when the tank reaches empty —whichever occurs first. Put simply, if your disposable vape is not working, it’s probably empty. Likewise, you can tell when a disposable is empty, because it will no longer work.

A recent study at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland found that the cancer danger of vaping is almost as low as for nicotine replacement therapies like patches and gum — less than one percent. “This study should put to rest any doubt within the tobacco control movement about whether vaping greatly reduces health risk compared to smoking,” wrote Boston University’s Dr. Michael Siegel

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick, sweet liquid, extracted from plants, and is primarily responsible for the vapor produced. It is traditionally employed in the following industries: Food, Pharma, Botanical, and personal care products. Propylene Glycol (PG) is a colorless, non-toxic, odorless liquid, that is responsible for assisting in the delivery of the active ingredient(s), in our case this would be nicotine. The US FDA approves both compounds as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

Absolutely not!

This myth was created by a 2009 FDA press statement regarding electronic cigarettes. The FDA tested 18 cartridges from 2 companies. Of those 18 cartridges, 1 tested positive for a non-toxic amount of diethylene glycol (approximately 1%). While diethylene glycol is occasionally used in anti-freeze, the chemical is not a standard ingredient in e-cigarette liquid and it has not been found in any other samples tested to date.

The base liquid for e-cigarette liquid is usually propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is considered GRAS (Generally
Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and EPA. While it is also sometimes found in anti-freeze, it is actually added to make the anti-freeze less toxic and safer for small children and pets. Propylene glycol is a common ingredient found in
many of the foods we eat, cosmetics we use and medications we take. It is also used in the fog machines used in theaters and night clubs.

No. Nicotine is the addictive active ingredient found in cigarettes, therefore is used in e-liquids. Studies have shown that about 50 of the (over) 4,000 combusted chemicals in traditional cigarettes may cause cancer.

Sometimes, vapers have a dry mouth reaction to PG. Propylene glycol is a humectant, which in short means that it loves water. You can also choose a lower PG:VG to reduce dry mouth for those sensitive to PG. Also, stay hydrated!

No flame, no burning, therefore zero combustion takes places

Vaping addresses the addictive component of smoking, nicotine, without having to combust 600 ingredients into over 4,000 chemicals, with over 50 of them known to be cancer-causing

No risk of “second hand vape” as all that is vaporizing is the PG/VG and nicotine

No unpleasant smell that sticks to your clothing, car, home, breath. E-liquid

Satisfies your craving for nicotine

Allows for you to properly taper off nicotine by using different e-liquids with varying nicotine strength (0mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, 24mg are standard strengths)

Enjoy breathing again!

No they can’t. Vaping at worst has trace amounts of Diacetly, the chemical that causes popcorn lung however, cigarettes do contain diacetyl (and acetoin). In fact, a lot of it. A regular cigarette smoker probably inhales more than 100 times as much diacetyl as any vaper. But there has never been a diagnosed case of popcorn lung in a smoker, except smokers who also inhaled diacetyl directly at one of the studied flavoring factories.
