How Do The Disposable Vapes Work?

Disposable vape devices work by using the battery power to heat the in-built coil to produce a vapour from the e-liquid inside the vape. This happens automatically when drawing the vapour from the device.

Unlike the commonly found rechargeable vape kits such as vape pens and mod kits, there’s no need to press a button to fire up; it simply works by inhaling the E-Liquid vapour like you would a cigarette.

You won't need to charge the disposable device or replace the coil. Usually, they can last around 500-600 puffs depending on the brand, product you have chosen or your vaping style, with many devices boasting even higher rates.

Do not panic if you have received your disposable vape and are unsure where to start. It is straightforward! Remove the device from the plastic packaging, remembering to remove the rubber bungs on the top and bottom of the disposable vape, and when you’re ready, you can draw from it as you would a standard lit cigarette.

You don’t need to press a button, change the settings, add e-liquid, or do anything you would have to do with a brand new rechargeable vape mod or vape pen. You can get started using your disposable vape immediately, which is why many people choose to go for a disposable vape as they enter the world of vaping. They are very low maintenance and have also become extremely popular with veteran vapers.

When you get a new disposable vaping device, you get a non-rechargeable lithium-ion battery that comes fully charged. The tank is likely sealed, so you throw it away when it runs out of juice or the battery flattens.

How Do I Get More Juice From My Disposable Vape?

As all disposable vape devices come sealed and already pre-filled with e-liquid, there is no way of topping up the e-liquid in a disposable device, but being completely aware of how you are using your disposable vape and how frequently you are using it can help you get that little bit extra from your product.

As most of the disposable vapes on the market currently have no way of seeing how much e-liquid is inside the tank, it is almost impossible to figure out when your tank has run out of juice. The only way you will know this has happened is when the light on the device is flashing, showing that there is still some battery life, but the tank is low on juice or near enough empty.

Some tips to help you try and get the most out of your disposable vape are; Make sure that a brand new device is sealed in airtight, plastic packaging. If you have received a disposable vape that is not entirely sealed, this can cause the cotton that absorbs the e-liquid to partially dry up, meaning that your e-liquid will not last as long as advertised. Another tip to help the longevity of your vape juice is only to inhale as much as you need and only vape when you feel it is completely necessary.

The most common reason a disposable vape stops hitting is that it is simply out of e-liquid. The average disposable vape contains enough e-liquid for up to 600 puffs, but the stand-out phrase is “up to.” You’re not likely to get that many puffs if you inhale extremely deeply or vape very often that the device’s coil remains overheated.
