How a Disposable Vape Pen Works

Vape pens use the same principle as the other types of vaporisers. The only difference is their size and their premeasured vape juice and pre-calculated battery.

The pen has two primary parts; the atomizer (which comprises the coil and the tank that holds the vape liquid) and the battery.

The battery powers the vape coil in the atomiser, causing it to heat and vaporise the vape liquid in the wick to produce flavour and vapour.

Unlike most vaping devices, disposable vapes don’t require recharging. The battery is pre-calculated and lasts just about the same time as the vape liquid.

How to Store the Vape Pen

Disposable vape pens can last a few days, depending on your vaping tendencies. You need to store the pen properly for the best results and the best performance to the last puff.

You need to store the disposable vape pen in a cool and dry place. Moisture can damage the equipment. Placing the device in extreme heat or cold can affect the battery life and consequently the performance of the device. Extreme heat can also affect the quality of the vape liquid.

The pen should always be out of reach of children, even if it is a child-resistant vape. When possible, always ensure the pen is in the upright position. This reduces accidental damage.

How to Dispose of the Pen

Being a disposable vape pen, it will come a time when you will have to dispose of the pen when the vape liquid and charge are done. Most vapers will throw the pen in the garbage receptacle. But if you're looking for a more environment-friendly disposal method, you can drop the pen in the hazardous materials management facility.

Some disposable vape pen manufacturers also have a recycling program that allows you to responsibly dispose of your current vape pen and get a new pen at a discounted price.
