How Long Do Disposable Vapes Last?

Disposable vapes are quickly becoming popular in the vaping world. As you would expect with new devices, there are still many grey areas surrounding the devices. Being that they are disposable, the greatest concern that new disposable vape users have in mind is how long exactly the disposable vape will last.

The answer is not as short and straight as you would like. It takes some explaining to help you know what to expect when using a disposable vape.

How Long Does a Disposable Vape Last?

The longevity of your disposable vape depends on the battery and the quantity of the tank. Premium brands offer better batteries and larger tanks which means you can use the tank for longer. One of the best ways to measure the longevity of a disposable vape is by counting the number of draws you can get from the device.

How Many Draws Does a Disposable Vape Last?


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:

Vape battery

The vape pen battery is one of the main factors to consider when determining how long the device can last. The battery is the beating heart of the vape device. In disposable vapes, you can't charge the battery. If it runs before you can finish vaping the device, you can't use it any longer.

Most top brands have their batteries calculated. So ideally, the vape liquid will dry out before the battery. It's important to do some research to avoid low-quality batteries that might end before the vape liquid.


Most disposable vape pens come with a pre-set temperature. Although going for the device with the highest temperature settings seems appealing, remember that the higher the temperature setting, the faster you will burn through the coil, which will determine how long the coils can last. If the coils burn out too early, you can’t continue to use the device. 

Length of the draw

The length of your draw will also have a significant impact on the longevity of your disposable vape. Longer draws mean you use more vape liquid with each puff, and the tank empties faster. You should find the right balance between your vaping frequency and the length of each draw to get the most out of your vape liquid and disposable vape.

Frequent vapers go through their disposable vapes faster, while the more modest users will have more time to go through the device.


Most vapers don't know this, but where you store your disposable vape can affect the device's longevity. Storing the device near room temperature can help to prolong the battery life of the device. Disposable vapes with cold batteries require more time and consume more power to heat up. For better results and longer battery life, it's best to keep the device around room temperature. If that is not possible, try holding the device in your palms for a few minutes before you start using it to warm up the battery.

Types of Disposable Vapes

How long a disposable vape lasts also depends on the type of vape pen you have. There aren't many types, so making a choice isn't hard:

Single-fill disposable vape pens

This is the most basic type of disposable vape pen. It is perfect for new vapers and vapers who don't want the commitment of working with a more advanced vaporiser. Single-fill disposable vape pens come pre-filled with your preferred vape juice in them, and the battery is pre-charged.

A single-fill disposable vape pen can last a day or up to three days long, depending on your vaping tendencies.

Refillable disposable pens

Refillable vape pens can hold as much as 6ml of vape liquid, giving you about 200puffs per pen depending on your drawing technique. The pens come with refills and some of them can last up to six refills. However, they don’t have a rechargeable battery. So while you might have more freedom with the vape liquid, you still need to watch the battery and use it conservatively if you want to use the device for a long time.

If you're looking for a vape pen that offers more freedom but doesn't require as much maintenance and cleaning, you can go for refillable and reusable vape pens. These are still a little basic but have slightly more features and allow you to get more out of your vaping experience. The devices are refillable, and the battery is rechargeable.
