How Long Do Disposable Vapes Last?

Date Published 11/11/2022

Something many vapers who use disposable vapes want to know is how long disposable vapes last. Of course, being disposable, they won’t last for as long as other vape devices, which are designed to be refilled with e-liquid and have replaceable components.

However, as a general rule, a legal disposable vape will last roughly between 600 and 800 puffs. But this is dependent on a couple of different factors. Battery life and tank capacity may differ between models and makes of disposable vapes, so some may last for longer. 

Not only that, but someone who uses their disposable vape more frequently will find that their disposable vape doesn’t last as long as a less frequent vaper, because they’re getting through the e-liquid at a faster rate.

How Long do Disposable Vape Batteries Last? 

Again, this will depend on the individual model. Often, disposable vape batteries will be 280mAh, but the battery size of disposable vapes can go up to 850 mAh – a disposable vape with a battery this size will last longer.

Unlike the batteries in other vape devices, batteries in disposable vapes come precharged and cannot be recharged. So, when a disposable vape runs out of battery, it can’t be used. However, in many cases, the e-liquid will be used up before the battery runs out. 

How Many Days Can a Disposable Vape Last?

It can be difficult to know how many days a disposable vape will last because it will depend on battery life and individual use. However, it’s possible to give a rough indication. 

300 puffs: A disposable vape with around 300 puffs should last for a couple of days. However, this is likely to depend on the frequency of use – some vapers will take 300 puffs over the course of one day, using the vape up, while others may only use their vape a couple of times a day, spreading the 300 puffs out across a longer period of time.

600 puffs: A disposable vape with 600 puffs could last for four or five days. But again, a more frequent vaper could see it last for longer, whereas somebody who doesn’t vape as regularly could make it last for a week or more. 

How Can I Make My Disposable Vape Last Longer?

While a disposable vape won’t last forever, there are some safe ways to help your disposable vape last longer.  

When you’re not using your vape, ensure that it’s kept in the correct conditions. It shouldn’t be too cold, with room temperature being ideal. This is because a cold vape uses more energy to heat up when it’s used, meaning that the battery drains faster.

Taking shorter draws can also help your vape last longer. When you take longer draws, you use more e-liquid with every puff, draining the tank faster. If you do prefer deeper, longer draws, you may want to take them less frequently to help your e-liquid last.
