How do you know when a disposable vape pen is empty?

Most vape pens are equipped with a tank where the concentrates are held and can be easily viewed. Once the reservoir appears to be empty, and the device stops producing vapor, it is empty and ready to be disposed of.

How long does a disposable vape pen last?

Every person’s experience with a disposable vape pen will vary depending on how much concentrate it holds, the battery strength, and how much it gets used. These small portable vapes on average will last anywhere from 2-5 days depending on the factors mentioned above, but the batteries themselves are not meant to go for more than three days. You can just put it away and forget about it, or you might come back to a dead battery and wasted concentrate.

Reusable vs. disposable vape pens

The number one question I get asked is which one is better? The trouble is that the answer will depend on you more than the products themselves. Disposable vapes are perfect for grabbing in a pinch, come ready to go, and are easily thrown away. For anyone who is just beginning to experiment with vaping, or who don’t want to maintain a more expensive investment, disposable vaporizers are perfect. However, if you are a long time vaper, know that you will be using the device regularly, and would like to save a few dollars while choosing from a more extensive selection of filler options than a rechargeable portable vape might be the better option at only $20-$80 more. Disposable vapes are incredibly convenient and easy to use, but the price of them also reflects that, so the decision is most definitely a personal one.
