How long do disposable vapes last?

Disposable vapes are rapidly gaining popularity in the vaping world. As you would expect with newer devices, there is still a lot of grey area around the device. Since they are disposable, the biggest concern for those new to vaping is exactly how long the disposable vape lasts.

The answer is not as concise and direct as you might prefer. Here is the ultimate explanation to help you know what to expect when using disposable vape and its lifecycle.

The life of your disposable vape depends on the battery and the quantity of the tank, one of the best ways to measure the life of a disposable vape is to count the number of puffs you can get from the device however, this may be suboptimal method of measuring the longevity of a disposable vape pen.

Most disposable vapes will come with a rating on how many draws you can get from the device. But the rating is only a ‘place holder’. The actual number of draws you can get from a disposable vape depends on a number of factors which include:


The battery of a vape pen is one of the main factors to consider when determining the lifespan of a device. The battery is the beating heart of a vaping device. In disposable vapes, you cannot charge the battery. If the battery expires before you've finished vaping the device, you can't use it anymore.

Most major brands have their battery pre calculated to ensure the battery does not expire too early, so ideally the vape liquid should dry before the battery.


Most disposable vape pens have a pre-set temperature. While it may sound tempting to use an appliance with the highest temperature setting, keep in mind that the higher the temperature setting, the faster you will burn out the coil, which will determine the lifespan of the coil. If the coils burn out too soon, you may not be able to continue using the device, hence why the disposable vape pens have a predetermined temperature to ensure the intended lifespan of the product.

Draw time

The length of your inhalation will also have a significant impact on the lifespan of your disposable vape. Longer puffs mean you use more vape liquid with each puff and the tank exhausts faster. You need to strike the right balance between vaping frequency and the length of each draw to get the most out of your disposable vape and vape liquids.

Frequent vapers go through to their disposable vapes faster, while more modest users have more time to go over to devices.


Most vapers don't know this, but where you store your disposable vape can have a negative affect on the life of your device. Storing your device at room temperature can help prolong its battery life. Disposable vape pens with colder batteries take longer and use more energy to heat up the atomiser. For best results and longer battery life, it's best to keep your device at room temperature. If that's not possible, try holding the device in your palm for a few minutes before starting to use it to warm up the battery.
