How Long Do Rechargeable Vapes Last? A Guide

How long do rechargeable vapes last? It depends on the specific type of vape you have, and a number of other factors.

With so many manufacturers and types of vapes out there, there’s no simple, single answer. However, we can break that question down and share some more specific information. Keep reading to learn about the useful life of disposable rechargeable vapes, 510 vape batteries, and more.

How Long Do Rechargeable Vapes Last?

What are Rechargeable Vapes?

There are many different types of vapes available on the market. Broadly speaking, the term “rechargeable vape” can refer to two similar but distinct products:

510 Vape Battery

These rechargeable batteries accept 510 cartridges, the standard for the industry. Those numbers describe the specific type of threading used for the battery and cartridge. It’s the most common for both vapes and batteries.

Also called vape pens, 510 batteries can be used repeatedly with any cart that includes 510 threading. They have a long overall lifespan. Additionally, they’re very customizable since they can be used with any 510 cartridge.

Rechargeable Disposable Vapes

Disposable vapes contain a built-in battery and cartridge that aren’t designed to be separated. Once the vape juice or oil is exhausted, you dispose of the now-empty unit.

Rechargeable disposable vapes are convenient but not customizable. You’re limited to what’s included in the unit. However, as long as you like the blend of cannabinoids offered, that’s usually not a problem.

Rechargeable disposable vapes ensure you can use all of the cartridge’s contents. You don’t need to worry about the vape running out of power beforehand.

How Many Puffs are in a Rechargeable Disposable Vape? How Long Do Rechargeable Disposable Vapes Last?

The number of puffs in a rechargeable disposable device depends on how you take a draw and the size of the cartridge. A 2-gram vape cart will last about twice as long as a 1-gram cart, for example.

The good news is many disposable vapes include an estimate of the number of puffs included. That figure isn’t always completely accurate because it can’t account for how long or strong of a draw you take. However, the estimate is generally a good guide of what to expect.

The key thing to remember is that rechargeable disposables let you use all of the active ingredients. That’s true no matter the size of the cartridge or the total number of puffs. Thanks to recharging, their batteries all last long enough to make sure you get your money’s worth.

How Long Does a Vape Cartridge Last?

Individual 510 vape cartridges come in many different sizes. Even the smallest common cartridge size, 500 mg, contains enough oil or juice for several sessions. Larger cartridges will, of course, last longer.

Separate cartridges don’t normally include an estimate of the number of puffs included. However, you don’t need to worry about them running out of concentrate. Because nearly all carts are transparent, it’s easy to see how much you have left.

How Long Do Vape Pen Batteries Last?

How long do rechargeable vape pens last? 510 vape batteries have a long, useful life.

Specifics vary between manufacturers and individual products. However, an average 510 battery can last for many months or years with proper charging and care. The better you treat your rechargeable vape pen, the longer it can work reliably and well.

Popular Mechanics explains that lithium batteries, like the kind found in 510 vapes, wear out over time. Charging and using the vape battery repeatedly degrades the battery’s cathode and its ability to accept a charge.

So, let your vape pen battery get close to empty before recharging it. You should also fully charge it when you need to plug it into a power source. That means fewer charges overall, which can prolong your pen’s battery life.

Rechargeable Vapes: FAQ and Answers

How Many Times Can You Recharge a Rechargeable Vape? How Long Do Rechargeable Vape Batteries Last?

The useful life of a rechargeable vape depends in part on the quality of parts and manufacturing. Another key factor is how (and how often) the rechargeable vape is charged and used.

For rechargeable disposable vape pens, there isn’t much to worry about. The battery will last far longer than the cartridge sealed inside the unit.

510 rechargeable vape batteries using 510 carts are built for the long haul. It’s common to have many dozens or even hundreds of charging cycles. Battery efficiency will wear down over time. There are certain steps you can take to make your battery last longer, too.

The Washington Post shared charging advice geared toward large electronics with lithium batteries. The big-picture suggestions also apply to 510 vape pens, which use the same type of battery. A few simple tips to extend battery life include:

  • Avoid letting your pen get too hot while charging
  • Charge only once the battery is at 20% or lower
  • Don’t leave your device plugged in after it’s fully charged

How Do You Know When a Rechargeable Disposable Vape is Finished?

Ever take a draw on a rechargeable disposable vape pen and get only a little vapor and just a faint flavor or taste?

That’s a good sign the cartridge is empty or almost empty. The cartridge can continue to provide a small amount of vapor when it’s almost empty. You may notice the quality and strength of your high dropping off, too.

Some disposable vapes have a small window or viewing port that lets you see the internal cartridge. That makes it a lot easier to tell if the cartridge is empty.

What Happens When a Rechargeable Vape Runs Out of Juice?

For 510 vape pens, many devices don’t actively indicate that the cartridge is empty. Because the cart is separate from the battery, it’s easy to judge the amount of juice or oil remaining. One of the major advantages of 510 vape pens is that you can simply swap in a fresh cartridge when this happens.

Do Rechargeable Vapes Need Refills?

Yes, 510 vapes need refills. The good news is that the threading on 510 vapes and cartridges is the industry standard.

It’s easy to buy new 510 cartridges when your current one runs out. And, you can stock up on carts so you always have a supply ready to go.

On the other hand, disposable rechargeable vapes do not and generally cannot accept refills. They’re designed to be thrown away once their cartridge is expended. You can keep additional disposable vapes on hand, but you normally can’t refill individual units.

How Can I Make my Vape Pen Battery Last as Long as Possible?

We’ve already reviewed how to best charge a vape battery to extend its lifespan. Along with that advice, you can also maintain your 510 vape pen with these simple cleaning methods

Occasionally cleaning your vape makes it more hygienic along with helping it last longer. Removing dirt, dust, and debris can also make a vape easier to use.
