How Long Does A Vape Tank Last?

How Long Does A Vape Tank Last?

A tank itself can be used repeatedly thanks to the ability to replace almost every part on most vape tanks, such as the glass, the O rings and even the mouthpiece/drip tip.

A vape tank or clearomiser with a non-replaceable coil will on average last between 14-28 days depending on how it is being used and what juice is being used inside. Most of the tanks on the market today come with replaceable coils, which will need replacing between 14-21 days, once again depending on how they are used and what liquid is being used inside.

There are also tanks called cartomisers which are prefilled cartridges that are made to fit onto the early cigarette shaped vapes and these cartomisers usually last anywhere between 150-200 puffs. When the cartomisers are dead, you then throw them away and replace the entire cartomiser.

How Do You Know If Your Vape Tank Is Bad?

Your vape tank is bad if you're not getting as much flavour or vapour production as you used to; this could be an issue with the connection between the battery and the tank itself. You should also look out for any leakages. This is usually caused by broken glass that can be replaced, but if your glass is intact and you notice leaking, specifically out of the airflow holes or near the filling hole, this is a sign of a bad tank.

If you ever notice that your liquid changes colour to a darker shade but your coil is working perfectly, this could be another sign of a bad tank. If the tank is quite old and has been used a lot, then some residue can stick inside the tank and start to contaminate the new liquid, which can turn it into a darker shade. If you notice any of these, it may be time to look at a new vape tank.

On most occasions, it will more than likely be your bad coil and not your tank.

How Long Do Disposable Vape Tanks Last?

A disposable vape tank will last for roughly 300 puffs or 2 to 3 weeks, but this depends on the disposable vape tank itself and how often it will be used. There are many different disposable vape tanks on the market now available with a 510 connector. For example, the Dr Vapes 'Drip tank' is a disposable vape tank with a built-in 0.15ohm vertical mesh coil that delivers a significant amount of flavour and has an expected lifespan of 2/3 weeks.

The average disposable vape tank can last anywhere between 200 to 400 puffs, roughly equivalent to 2 to 3 weeks of usage.
The average quantity of juice that a disposable vape tank can hold is 2ml, and this is the largest size disposable tank you will find on the market since TPD regulations came into force in May 2017.
