Pyro 12000 Disposable Vape Review

Disposable vapes are the hottest style of device. Popular with adult vapers for their bold flavors and potent nicotine salt formulas, the typical disposable has increased exponentially in capability, puff count, e-liquid capacity and vapor production when compared to the flimsy cigalikes of a decade ago.

Mi-Pod carries all the top names in our disposable vape collection. Moreover, as a trusted distributor we have access to the best inventory and fight to combat the scourge of counterfeit vapes. Check out our feature on how to spot a fake vape for more information.

There are now Smart Vapes that monitor e-liquid levels and remaining battery life. There are even dual-mode disposable vapes that offer a higher power setting for adult vapers not interested in sticking with a tight MTL draw. But the Pyro 12000 is a quite different beast when compared to most of the disposables we carry, as the table below shows.

Pyro versus Regular Disposable Vape

Disposable Vape Mod

But missing out on this revolution of convenience and practicality are adult vapers who use lower-strength nicotine options, prefer direct lung (DL) vaping in the style of a vape mod, and value vapor production over instant nicotine intake.

Pyro Specs

For fans of higher-wattage devices, the typical disposable vape packs a nicotine strength 10-fold or higher than the typical freebase e-liquids.

The Pyro 12000 addresses this gap in the market. If you are a mod user who wants to vape on the go and not risk damaging your sophisticated device, or simply prefer DL vaping, the Pyro 12000 is designed for you. No more compromising is necessary when are compelled to switch to a prefilled device. The Pyro 12000 Disposable Mod collection features an array of great flavors.

Pyro 12000 Disposable Vape

It is important to remember that the Pyro 12000 is not a traditional disposable vape. The form factor, designed for increased airflow, is slightly different. It is very tubular, although there were generations of nic salt disposables with a similar look before rechargeable vapes took over.

But there are big differences inside. Specifically, it is loaded with 5mg strength freebase e-liquid. This is 10 percent the strength of the typical nic salt disposable. The Pyro 12000 appearance has a martial vibe. The five-pointed star in a circle looks like a United States Air Force roundel. There are also camouflage elements on several of the devices, although a honeycomb pattern dominates on most of the devices. They serve to break-up a somewhat utilitarian appearance.

Direct Lung Disposable Vape

The vegetable glycerin/propylene glycol (VG/PG) ratio of the Pyro 12000 is not that far off the typical nic salt disposable. They are very scrupulous when providing the 55/45 VG/PG split with the remaining 5 percent being made up of nicotine (0.5) and flavorings (4.5 percent). While the numbers for disposables aren't often provided, they are closer to 50 percent in general.

Adjustable airflow helps control the vapor production, provide it with a decent range of draw options. There are some direct-lung nic salt disposables, but this can be a bit intense considering the sheer potency of their e-liquids. 5mg is a much more suitable nicotine strength for heavy vapor production. 

Before reviewing the Pyro 12000, it is important to familiarize ourselves with some classic vaping terminology. While disposable vapes have simplified vaping for adults, there are a two main styles of vaping, two main styles of nicotine, two types of draw and VG/PG ratios to consider. The Pyro 12000 is a totally different product across the board than a Geek Bar or Lost Mary MT15000 Turbo.

Pyro 12000 Performance

What does this VG/PG business mean? That the Pyro 12000 has a denser vapor cloud but not having 50 or 100 watts on tap like a vape mod it cannot churn through a 70 or 80 percent VG formula. That said, the AVC Mesh Coil is a free breathing and expertly crafted design, with plenty of airflow and surprising vapor production.

Vaping a freebase disposable, such as the Pyro 12000, delivers a distinctive experience from the more common nicotine salt disposables. The sensation of inhaling lower potency vapor provides a gradual onset of satisfaction. This is due to reduced potency and nic salts crossing the blood brain barrier more quickly.

It’s a more controlled style of vaping as each hit is ultra-strong in nicotine. This makes the Pyro 12000 ideal for individuals accustomed to the direct-lung vaping techniques. The freebase e-liquid in the Pyro 12000, specifically designed with a lower nicotine strength, caters to those who prioritize flavor and vapor production over nicotine concentration. This creates a fuller, richer vapor that allows the subtleties of the e-liquid’s flavor profile to shine through, providing a satisfying experience without an overwhelming nicotine kick.

Lower Nicotine Disposable Vapes

Fans of mods will love the Pyro 12000. It is also a great choice for anyone looking cut their intake, although the Flonq Max Smart Collection, with traditional nic salt performance and 0, 30 and 50mg strength is probably a more logical choice for that transition than switching to an entirely different style of vaping.

If any of these concepts remain confusing, below the flavor reviews below we provided a more in-depth discussion of VG/PG ratios, nicotine salts versus freebase, and direct-lung versus mouth-to-lung vaping.

Pyro 12000 Flavors

The flavors of the Pyro 12000 are quite dense and delicious. This is still a balanced vape juice formula, although the lack of the salt kick will be notable to initiates.

Cool Cassis

“Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous.”
(Caesar, Act 1 Scene 2).

Surprisingly, the Cool Cassis Pyro 12000 is not named after the Roman Senator notorious for betraying and killing Julius Cesar, before ending up in the lowest circle of Hell according to Dante’s Inferno. Instead, it is inspired by black currant inspired beverage popular in the Netherlands. It tastes like a delightful and flavorful grape ice with added tartness with the currant inspired notes.

Double Apple

The Double Apple Pyro 12000 merges the crispness of green apples with the succulent sweetness of reds, providing a well-balanced and enjoyable draw every time you reach for your vape. This is a classic freebase apple vape. It is juicy, sweet, and delectable.

Major Mango

In general, the Major Mango Pyro 12000 is a freebase mango flavor of the first rank. The ripe and smooth tropical flavors abound and shine bright in a big vapor cloud.

Mint Gum

The Mint Gum Pyro 12000 replicates the refreshing sensation of your favorite spearmint chewing gum. A flavor usually associated with nic salts, it works great and is delicious in a lower potency freebase nicotine vape as well.

Strawberry Strike

With perhaps the most bellicose name,  Strawberry Strike Pyro 12000 is a classic strawberry vape. The 55 VG formula provides enough flavor density where even traditional disposable vape users will love this flavor.

Watermelon Blast

The explosive flavor of the Watermelon Blast Pyro 12000 hits the spot with its refreshing and sweet notes. Watermelon has always been a great mod flavor, and it works great in this disposable direct lung vape.

Watermelon Bubblegum

Pure nostalgia is on tap with the Watermelon Bubblegum Pyro 12000. Feel free to chuck clouds of this whimsical blend of candied watermelon and classic bubblegum taste.

Our Verdict

The Pyro 12000 is a different style of disposable vape and the Pyro 12000 delivers as advertised. The 850mAh battery provides a lot of big clouds for a disposable. 5mg is a just about perfect strength for this style of vape with a 0.6ohm AVC mesh coil.

If you are a mod user on the go or someone who is steering clear of potent nic salts but would like a satisfying disposable to use, the Pyro 12000 is a slam dunk. But it is not a 1-to-1 replacement for your Lost Mary. In the section below, we explain why this is not the case.

Vaping Primer

A lot of vaping concepts are no longer discussed because prefilled pods and disposables are so popular. Most of the people using prefilled devices have done so for some time, or can fall back on the educational structure provided by vape shops. Below are the concepts and attributes that distinguish the Pyro 12000 from the myriad salt nic disposable vapes on the market.

Freebase Nicotine versus Nicotine Salts

Freebase nicotine was a staple in vaping e-liquids for years but overtaken in popularity by nic salts since approximately 2016.

Nicotine salts, although they have existed for decades, are the newer innovation when it comes to vapes. They are created by adding benzoic acid to nicotine, which lowers the pH level, resulting in a smoother vaping experience even at higher nicotine strengths. This is why nic salts are used in low-wattage disposable vapes. You can simply use higher potency levels, and this allows ostensibly weak devices to provide strong performance.

Studies have also shown that nicotine salts cross the blood brain barrier more quickly. Nicotine salts are ideal for those looking for a potent nicotine hit without the harshness, often used in pod systems and high-resistance, low-power vaping devices.

The higher pH level of freebase, which leads to a more intense throat hit when vaped at higher concentrations, is quite suitable for lower strength e-liquids. One of the many reasons early cigalikes were so abysmal is that they used potent freebase e-liquids, which can be quite harsh, and had no power on tap with puny batteries.

Generally, freebase nicotine is ideal for vape juices with a strength between 3 and 16mg. The 5mg strength of the Pyro 12000 falls in the middle of this range and the higher pH is not evident.

What are VG/PG Ratios?

VG/PG ratios are vital in defining the vaping experience, determining the balance between vapor production and flavor intensity. VG, or Vegetable Glycerin, is a thick, sweet liquid that produces dense vapor clouds, ideal for those who enjoy seeing substantial vapor when they exhale.

PG, or Propylene Glycol, on the other hand, is thinner and carries flavor more efficiently. At one time, cigalikes with high PG ratios were quite popular, with the harshness of the throat hit viewed as a feature. The VG/PG ratio in a vape juice influences not only the vapor production and throat hit but also how well the flavors come through and how quickly the liquid consumes.

A higher VG ratio results in smoother inhales and larger clouds, making it preferred for direct lung (DL) vaping. Conversely, a higher PG ratio enhances the flavor and provides a more intense throat hit, making it suitable for mouth to lung (MTL) vaping. The 55/45 VG/PG split in the Pyro 12000 is engineered to offer a balanced experience, catering to those who seek substantial vapor production without sacrificing flavor intensity.

Difference Between Direct-Lung and Mouth-to-Lung Vaping

Direct-lung (DL) and mouth-to-lung (MTL) are two primary inhalation methods in vaping, each offering a distinct experience. Direct-lung vaping involves inhaling vapor directly into the lungs, much like taking a deep breath. This method allows for the inhalation of more vapor, producing larger clouds and a smoother hit due to the higher VG content typically found in DL vape juices. It is preferred by users who enjoy the sensation of vapor filling their lungs and those who are after significant vapor production.

Mouth-to-lung vaping, conversely, more closely mimics combustibles. The vapor is first drawn into the mouth and then inhaled into the lungs. MTL vaping is often preferred by those making the switch, as cloud chasing devices like the Pyro 12000 provide a quite different experience, or vapers who prioritize flavor intensity and a more controlled vapor output over cloud production.

Lower wattage of course means less power required and less vapor. Traditional disposable vapes manage to be discrete and provide plenty of vaping with smaller battery sizes because of their use of nic salts.
