We understand the struggle, which is why we've compiled a list of the top 5 MTL vapes that won't break the bank. From eye-catching designs, like the SKE Crystal Plus pod system, to user-friendly interfaces like the Elf Bar Elfa Pro pod system, you will find an affordable vape kit that suits you on this list.


SKE Crystal Plus Rechargeable Vape Kit 

Price: £7.99

SKE Crystal Plus Rechargeable Vape Kit

Vapers fell in love with SKE Crystal Bars for a reason; they were simply gorgeous. The new Crystal Bar pod system sports the same crystal-like appearance and colour gradient. The smooth finish makes it comfortable to hold, and the transparent mouthpiece adds to its classy look while providing a smooth touch to your lips. The SKE Crystal Plus Rechargeable vape is unquestionably the best-looking device on the list of affordable MTL vapes.

To briefly discuss how sturdy these vapes are, Crystal Bar pod systems are built to last. Made from stainless steel, they are structurally sound enough to handle frequent use and travel. With its compact size, the SKE Crystal Plus vape easily slips into your pocket, making it an ideal partner for on-the-go vaping.

There are five colour gradients available for you to choose from, including Aurora Blue, Aurora Green, Blue, Grey, and Red.

The best part is, you get to enjoy all your favourite Crystal Bar flavours in convenient prefilled pods. Each pod, prefilled with 2ml of e-liquid, is simple and user-friendly, making them easy to use and dispose of once they're empty. SKE Crystal Plus pods are designed for MTL (Mouth To Lung) vaping, producing minimal vapor, much like traditional cigarettes.


Vaporesso XROS 3 Mini Kit

Price: £16.99

Vaporesso XROS 3 Mini Kit

This pick is a bit of a cheat, because it's a RDTL vape as much as it is a MTL vape. Yet, the Vaporesso Xros 3 Mini vape kit offers a bang for your buck if what you're after is an affordable MTL capable vape device.

The Vaporesso XROS 3 Mini keeps things simple, making it a great option for anyone getting started in the world of blowing puffy clouds. It's equipped with a built-in 1000mAh battery, which translates to: more vaping, less recharging. Thanks to its inhale activation technology, you won't have to worry about any complicated buttons or menus.

The kit is compatible with 2ml refillable pods from the Vaporesso Xros range, which means you won't have to deal with messy coil changes thanks to its integrated coil. If you wish to take bigger puffs, you can opt for the RDTL Xros pods instead of the MTL ones (sold separately).

The Xros pods feature a top-filling design, making them easy to refill through the filling port located under the mouthpiece - you don't even need to remove them from the device. Additionally, the coils inside are built with mesh, allowing the e-liquid to heat up faster for a more flavourful experience. 


Elf Bar Elfa Pro Pod System

Price: £5.99

Elf Bar Elfa Pro Pod System

Elf Bars need no introduction. After dominating disposable vapes, the Chinese vape brand switched their focus to producing rechargeable MTL pod systems. Great choice! - as regulators and vapers will tell you; their new products like the Elf Bar Elfa Pro pod system is a greener and cheaper way to enjoy Elf Bar flavours.

The Elfa Pro takes the best features of its predecessor, the Elfa kit, and builds upon it.  The pod system is built to please both seasoned vapers and newcomers looking for a MTL experience. The Elfa Pro combines the simplicity of a draw-activated system with the benefits of a rechargeable battery.

The lifeblood of the device are Elfa Pro pods. Each come pre-filled with 2ml of 20mg nicotine salt e-liquid, delivering a satisfying throat hit. What makes these pods special is the QUAQ tech mesh coil technology, enhancing the flavour delivery with its large surface area and highly absorbent wicking material. The transparent material of the pods lets you keep an eye on the e-liquid level.

Like with any other Elf Bar product, there's a whopping selection of 30 delightful Elfa Pro e-liquid flavours to choose from. A good number of the available flavours are well-known crowd pleasers that made Elf Bars popular. If you're a fan of the disposable vape, you're guaranteed to be a fan of the pods.

Compatible with both Elfa and Elfa Pro pods, the Elfa Pro device expands your flavour options, allowing you to explore a wide array of flavours inspired by the popular Elf Bar disposable vapes, alongside exclusive blends.


Aspire Minican Plus

Price: £12.99

Aspire Minican Plus

It was only a matter of time until you scrolled to find an Aspire vape device on this list. A while ago, Aspire introduced the original Minican, designed as an easy-to-use, all-in-one device for beginners. A short while later, they have released the updated Aspire Minican Plus, catering to MTL vapers.

The Aspire Minican Plus is a simple device, making it ideal for those who wish to steer clear of menus or fiddly buttons. Without any complicated controls or settings, everyone can enjoy a hassle-free experience. The kit includes an 850mAh battery, providing ample power for a day's use. Its slim and durable design, made from high-quality plastic, is both functional and visually appealing.

Featuring an integrated 2ml refillable pod, the Aspire Minican Plus allows for easy refilling and maintenance. Its 0.8ohm mesh coil makes the device perfect for MTL users in search of a discreet vaping device. The semi-transparent plastic casing, available in a range of colors, adds a touch of style to the device.

Using the Aspire Minican Plus is straightforward. Simply fill the pod with your preferred e-liquid, ensuring the coil is adequately saturated to prevent dry hits. The smart auto draw firing system eliminates the need for a fire button, providing a natural inhale similar to that of a traditional cigarette. The device's performance with salt nicotine e-liquids delivers a smooth and flavourful hit.


Aspire Gotek X Pod System

Aspire Gotek X Pod System

Here's yet another Aspire MTL vape device on our list. Aspire Gotek X vapes deserve all the praise they get for their simple and practical approach. This straightforward device offers hassle-free usage without unnecessary complexities.

The Gotek X's reflects Aspire's intention to craft a light-hearted and fun-to-use vaping device. The transparent chassis provides a glimpse of the internal components, while the base incorporates an adjustable airflow regulator and a Type-C fast charging port for quick recharging. The device's lightweight build and compact dimensions make it an effortlessly portable companion for vaping on the go.

The Gotek X's performance highlights its ease of use, featuring a user-friendly autodraw mechanism suitable for MTL vaping. While it may not produce massive clouds like larger mods, the 0.8Ω coil produces a satisfying amount of vapour.
