Vape Battery

So how long do disposable vapes last? Vape batteries are usually lithium-ion batteries, which means they can last a long time if they're well cared for. However, disposable vapes only last as long as their batteries do. The average battery size is 280mAh.

Most disposable vapes come with a small internal battery that you can't replace, meaning that you have to throw away the whole vape when the battery dies.

So how long do disposable vapes last? It depends on how often you use it, the device's battery size and how well you take care of them. A fully charged disposable vape should last most people around two days of moderate vaping. 


As the weather starts to heat up, you might wonder how long your disposable vape will last. After all, no one wants to be stuck with a dead battery in the middle of a hot summer’s day!

Here's what you need to know about the shelf life of disposable vapes: they will last for roughly a week to two weeks of use. However, this is only true if you store them properly! Keep your vape out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.

Cold batteries are another problem, as they can require extra time to heat up. Try placing the device in the palm of your hands for 2 minutes before you use it.

Draw Length

The draw length is when you place your lips on the vape and breathe in for about 3-5 seconds. The amount of time you spend breathing in will depend on preference. You have to use the proper inhaling technique. You can experiment with your vape devices until you see what draw length gives you the best vaping experience.

Remember, each vape has different draw resistance, so it will vary for each device.

Disposable Vapes Battery Sizes

The average disposable vape has a battery lifespan of around 250 puffs, but this will vary depending on the size of the battery.

The bigger the battery, the longer it will last. For example, a 550mAh battery will last for about 800 puffs which can get vapers through a couple days of vaping with ease.

If you're using your disposable vape regularly, you can expect to get through the battery life in about a week. But if you only use it occasionally, it could last for several weeks. Check out Vaping 101's disposable pod kits. 

When the battery does eventually die, you'll know it's time to replace the entire vape.

What To Use After Disposables

A few options are available if you're looking for an alternative to disposable vapes. Moving on from disposables is a good idea in terms of not causing a lot of plastic waste. Disposable vapes don't have the power to give you the best vaping experience. So what do you need? A vape kit - it will change your life (not to exaggerate).

How many days should a disposable vape last?

Disposable vape pens usually last around 3-5 days. This obviously depends on how much you vape per day. Some people can get up to a week out of one disposable vape pen, while frequent vapers may only get a day or two. Regardless, they're not meant to last forever and eventually need to be replaced.

How long should a 600-puff vape last?

A 600-puff vape should last approximately just over four days if you do about 135 puffs per day.


How long do disposable vapes last? Well, it depends on the brand, type of vape, and your personal vaping habits. However, on average, most disposables will last anywhere from 200 to 600 puffs before they need to be replaced. If your disposable vape runs out of battery, but you haven't finished the vape juice, then your battery specs are incorrect.

So, disposable vapes might be right for you if you're looking for a quick and easy way to get the feeling of smoking. Just remember, they don't have a rechargeable battery, so keep an eye out for the battery life.

I am finding that disposable vapes are only lasting about a day of moderate vaping. Not even 100 puffs. This is elf bars, lost Mary’s and skl crystal ones. I think I’ll go back to the permanent ones but I’ve ordered 8 crystal ones, is there a way to complain about the disposable vapes not lasting long because I think it’s a giant con
