How Long Do Disposable Vape Pens Last?


Vaping is trending as a way to consume marijuana. The flowers or marijuana extracts are put in a vaporizer and heated to produce vapors. The heat produced inside the vape pen only vaporizes the marijuana extract or flowers without burning it as the temperature. There are two types of vape pens available in the market: the disposable one and the other has a rechargeable battery.

Why is it Better to Use a Disposable Vape Pen?

As a beginner in vaping, you may want to experience it and then decide if you wish to continue or not. So, it is better to invest in an inexpensive disposable vape pen. Also, you do not have to worry about refilling the chamber as it contains enough marijuana oil or flower to last for 1.5 to 2.5 hours of vaping time.

Longevity of the Disposable Vape Pen

The longevity of the Disposable Vape Pens depends on the following conditions:

Size of the Cart

The disposable vape pens are available in different cart sizes, the volume of marijuana juice they hold. A cart may contain 0.5 ml to 1 ml of juice. The 0.5 ml vape pen can get you up to 150 puffs and a 1 ml cart can hold 300 mg of marijuana oil to last you for the longest time. If you want your disposable vape pen to last longer, buy one with a bigger cart.

Inhalation Duration

It may also depend on how many seconds you inhale when you take a draw or puff. Some people vape for 1 second and others for 3 to 6 seconds, so a 1 ml vape cart can last between 100 to 300 draws.

Battery size

The disposable vape pens have a strong battery (mAh) with a protection circuit to eliminate any sudden stoppage. The batteries are designed to last for a longer duration than the number of puffs that can be taken from the vape pen. Still, you have to check the power of the battery while buying a disposable vape pen.


While disposable vape pens last for a short duration, they are so popular for affordability and convenience. If you want to enjoy vaping on the go, like on a trip you can go for the disposable vape pens as the battery lasts longer than the regular pens and you don’t face any hassle of frequent charging. Also, you do not have to think about refilling. For occasional users, a disposable vape pen may last for 3 months.
