How Long Does a Disposable Vape Battery Last?
It can be disappointing when a device doesn’t last as long as you think it will.
You might think a larger battery equals a longer lifespan, but this isn’t necessarily true. Some batteries will have an indicator to display the remaining battery life, but what affects the lifespan of your vape, and how can you extend it?
Understanding why a vape might die — and how to make it last longer — helps to protect the environment and your wallet.
Let’s get into the details of everything you need to know about the lifespan of your disposable vape:
Key Factors That Affect How Long Your Disposable Vape Lasts
If the battery to your disposable e-cigarette isn’t rechargeable, then this will affect the lifespan of your vape, as once the battery has run out, you won’t be able to take any more puffs.
The battery capacity varies from brand to brand, meaning the e-liquid might often dries out before the battery dies which often results in a burnt taste. For WAKA’s non-rechargeable disposable vapes, the battery usually dies before the e-liquid runs out meaning users avoid getting a burnt taste.
The E-liquid capacity (i.e. the volume of e-liquid juice that the vape can store) will also alter the lifespan of your disposable device. The more significant the liquid capacity, the longer you’ll be able to enjoy using the e-cigarette. Every e-cigarette will likely differ in its e-liquid capability.
Please consider how often you vape to determine what works for you, as e-liquid capacity can vary substantially. For example, the WAKA soPro PA600 comes in a 2ml capacity and lasts up to 600 puffs, while the WAKA soPro PA10000 boasts an 18ml capacity and lasts up to an impressive 10,000 puffs.
Frequency of Use
As you’d probably imagine, the more you use the vape, the quicker you will go through it. Smaller capacity vapes, when frequently used, will last approximately three to five days. Unsurprisingly, regular use will shorten your vape’s lifespan.
It can be tempting to turn up the temperature to get more vapour. However, the disposable doesn't last as long when you turn the vape's temperature to a higher level.
The higher the temperature setting, the quicker the coil will burn in the vape. If the coil burns out, you won’t be able to keep using the vape any longer.
How to Tell if Your Disposable Vape Is Running Out
When the e-liquid is reaching its end, you'll often find that the flavour you once enjoyed is now lessening or turning “bad.” If this happens, it’s a sign that your disposable is reaching the end of its life.
Lack of Vapour
Much like the flavour, your device’s vapour will diminish once the e-cigarette nears its end. Often, this happens because the vape cannot heat the coil (and thus the e-liquid) like it could when you first purchased it.
When your phone battery is dying, you can often tell; it’s unable to function as efficiently as it once did. Similarly, when it comes to your disposable device, a clear sign of the battery coming to an end is that the vape isn’t holding a charge like it used to.
Simple Tips to Extend the Lifespan of Your Disposable Vape
Keep It Clean
Vapes are relatively easy to maintain, with a little wipe now and then. If you fail to clean your vape’s surface, small debris might block the airflow hole or the mouthpiece. As a result, the e-cigarette won’t perform as well as it should.
With quick cleaning and simple maintenance, you can increase its lifespan.
Short Breaks Between Puffs
You should give your vape short breaks between each puff before using it again. Doing so prevents an unpleasant burnt taste and prevents your device’s atomizer coil and battery from becoming hotter, resulting in more e-liquid consumption and faster battery draining. To lengthen the lifespan of your vape, avoid overheating your device by allowing short breaks after each puff.
Store It Well
Take care of your vape and keep it in a cool, dry space. Keep it out of the sun’s rays to prevent the e-liquid from evaporating. It’ll also help keep the battery’s life going for longer.
Like other devices, it’s best not to overcharge your e-cigarette to keep it working in optimal condition. Aim to keep your vape between 20% and 80% to keep it going strong.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do Disposable Vape Batteries Run Out?
Yes. Every battery eventually runs out. If your disposable e-cigarette isn’t rechargeable, it’ll run out quicker.
However, if you take good care of your vape, you can use it longer. And it’s essential to make your vape last longer in the battle against plastic.
While your vape will run out eventually, its lifespan will last longer if you take good care of it. If you need to buy another, consider browsing WAKA Vape’s selection.
Also in Vape Knowledge
Disposable vapes are pre-charged vape devices that come pre-filled with e-liquid. While reusable vapes such as vape pens and mods can be reused, disposable vapes become unusable once you exhaust the e-liquid tank or the battery (unless the disposable vape is rechargeable).
There are all sorts of reasons you might be considering a nicotine-free vape. Maybe you enjoy the flavour, or maybe you're considering using it as an aid to quit smoking.
