How Long Do Vape Pens Last: The Real Truth

How long do vapes last

Vape pens have been gaining popularity ever since they first came out on the market. They are easily pocketed, tote well in a purse, and can be carried in the palm of your hand with little difficulty. Vape pens are also popular because anywhere where smoking is prohibited a vape pen may be enjoyed.

How Long Do Vape Pens Last

Yet, vape pens don't seem to last very long. If you are looking at vape pens and considering trying them, you probably question how long do vape pens last. That is a fairly common question, and we'll try to answer that in the best way we can.

Single Fill Disposable Vape Pens

Single fill disposable vape pens are for people who want to try a vape pen but aren't sure they want to use one long-term. They only last as long as the single fill of vape juice in them, which may be only a day or as long as three days. It heavily depends on how often you take a drag on your vape pen. Heavy users will find that they dispose of this type of vape pen within a day. Others can make it last a little bit longer, but then it is spent and you need to buy another.

Refillable Disposable Vape Pens

These pens contain 60mL of vape juice. It means that you can get up to 200 puffs per pen, depending the draw and frequency of use. If you are only taking three puffs at a time and only using the pen five times a day for a total of fifteen puffs, the vape pen can last about two weeks. If you buy in bulk and get refillable cartridges for this type of disposable pen, it can last for the six refills commonly sold with these pens.

If you do the math, it means that you could get almost three months out of a single refillable disposable vape pen. Try a product like Cascade One Plus Starter Kit and order the extra refills at the same time to make the pen last as long as it can. At any point if you decide that you don't like a particular vape pen, you can always try a different refillable disposable vape pen.

Refillable Reusable Vape Pens

When you have sampled disposable pens like the Joyetech eGo AIO ECO starter pen, and you decide that you really like vape pens, you can move on to refillable reusable vape pens. These are vape pens that are not disposable and are designed to last even longer. They are essentially made to last, and only require recharging or replacing of the batteries to keep it going. Some models may also require regular replacements of the atomizer when it wears out, but that depends on the model.

If you keep up with pen maintenance on these refillable reusable vape pens, they can last a few years. (One good pen to try is the Limitless Pulse Pod System that allows you to recharge it via USB plug-in.) Follow manufacturer's instructions and use warnings to ensure a long life of your reusable vape pen. If you have any problems with this kind of pen, you can always contact the manufacturer for help.

Touchy Vape Pens

Nearly everyone has seen a YouTube video of a vape pen that blows up in someone's pocket, or heard about how vape pens are not allowed on planes. There are some vape pens that are cheaply made and highly volatile when they are overheated or under pressure. Most of those have been recalled by the manufacturer because they do not last long under typical use circumstances and can be a danger to consumers. Businesses that sell vape pens are very careful about the products they sell now, which means you can get a quality vape pen from a reputable seller.

The Short Answer to "How Long Do Vape Pens Last?"

As you can see from above, there is no direct answer to this question. There are a lot of different and varying factors that play a part in how long a vape pen will last. It depends on the type of vape pen, the frequency with which you take a puff on the vape pen, how often you can refill the vape pen before finally tossing it, and whether or not you buy a high quality vape pen versus a low quality one.

Doing your research helps. Committing to the use of a vape pen and having a great deal of self-discipline to avoid using it up too quickly also helps. Understanding that not everywhere you go allows a vape pen to travel with you means that you will have to hold off on using a vape pen too. Choose one that you have done extensive research on before making a final purchase.
