Hi there you have some interesting points there.Based on your novel idea.Can you please elaborate as to what the correct manner is in regards to disposing of these disposable devices correctly ?I was thinking more in the lines of: "are devices and bottled juice, other than disposables, heading towards redundancy for the control of flavor and nicotine sales...". Once disposables dominate the market it is easy for governments to make the call on the banning of vape gear with the exclusion of closed systems where users cannot control their own usage.... I am no conspiracy theorist and doomsday prepper (except for cotton, I have way too much cotton and promised the Mrs I won't buy any more), but the thought has crossed my mind.
Here is a novel idea.... Vape shops selling disposables should ask customers buying them to return them for "disposal" for a discount on a new one. Bring back 10 and you get one free even.... that way the vape shops can ensure they are disposed off in the correct manner or repatriated by those that can make use of the batteries and casings for other projects and the leftovers can be recycled (metal and plastic). They should also put signs up educating the disposable users on how to dispose of the devices correctly.

Good advice.The concept behind safe disposal is quite simple: you have to completely discharge your LiPos down to 0 Volts. This will ensure that absolutely no charge is left and at this state, even if you were to puncture the inner foil, nothing will happen.hobbyking.com
I will show you how to dispose old damaged lipo battery. Lipo disposal can be done safely. Discharge them using salt water, light bulb, motor, resistor.oscarliang.com
These are just a few websites with ideas on the disposal and reuse of the actual batteries.
As for disposing of the entire pod it can be done in a few ways: sealed with insulation tape or in packets and disposed off at designated facilities (battery centers that does recycling, electronic centers or containers at Makro). If you want to keep a lot of old diaposables prior to disposal, do so by keeping it seperated from each other (ziplocs) or making use of a container/crate/box with silica gel or even kitty litter in to reduce the moisture. From there once your box is full it can then be disposed at the correct facilities or electronic hobbyist can pickup a full load to repatriate the batteries.
Update: it reappeared! It had fallen between the couch cushions. Stupidly tiny things.A bit off topic, but I bought a caliburn ak2 pod kit to keep handy as a backup for when I didn't feel like cleaning tanks. Also got some spare pods. Used it for 2 weeks, and it appears that I've accidentally thrown the device away cos it's so small. That's me done with pods and disposables.
