How Long Does a Disposable Vape Last You

There are a lot of different answers to the question, “How long does a disposable vape pen last you?” First, the answer is going to depend on what substance you’re vaping. If you’re using a melatonin or supplement vape, for example, you’ll probably use it way less than a nicotine vape, so it’ll last longer. Next, it depends on how much liquid is in the vape, if your vape is disposable or reusable, and how deeply you’re inhaling when you take a hit. And these factors just scratch the surface.

Below, we’ll dive more into the details of how long a vape should last. We’ve organized the article by type of vape, so you can skip to the section that applies to you, whether you use a:

Read on to learn how long different disposable vapes last and about how many puffs you can expect from different sized vape pens.

How Long Disposable Vapes Last

Unlike vape devices that have a rechargeable battery, disposable vape devices aren’t meant to be recharged. The battery life of a disposable pen will generally outlast the vape juice. So, you don’t really have to worry about the vape battery running out. Disposable vape pens basically last as long as it takes you to finish the vape juice.

In other words, how long the vape pen lasts will depend on how much vape juice it has or how many puffs you can get from it. This is mainly determined by the size of the vape pen. In this section, we’ll go over the average sizes of some of the most popular types of disposable vape pens.

How Long Melatonin and Caffeine Vapes Last

This category may be less familiar to you than the ones that follow, but these products are growing in popularity. Here, we’re going to talk about disposable caffeine vape pens and disposable melatonin pens.

Helo Air, our disposable caffeine vape pens at MELO Labs, have about 400 puffs per device. We recommend taking 5-10 puffs per individual dose, but as you’ll notice in reviews, many customers feel the effects after just a few hits. But even if you take 10 hits per dose, taking one dose daily will make your device last over a month.

In other words, these devices tend to last much longer than nicotine vapes or even CBD vapes, even though they tend to be similar sizes. The same is true for melatonin vapes, which may last even longer than caffeine vapes.

If you’re wondering how many hits there are in a melatonin vape, the answer is very similar to other vapes. That said, melatonin tends to last longer mainly because you just don’t need very much of it. Our Melo Air product contains about 400 puffs per device which is standard for most disposable vapes. But since melatonin is only meant to be used once a day (at most), it often lasts longer.

Unlike caffeine, which you may want to hit a couple of times per day, melatonin should only be taken once in the evening before bed. The idea is to prepare your body for sleep, so you won’t want to do this any time other than when you’re about to go to sleep. And you may find you don’t need to use it every day.

With this in mind, melatonin diffusers like Melo Air tend to last much longer than any of the other devices we’ve talked about thus far. In fact, most of our customers only have to get a new vape less than once a month.

How Long Disposable Nicotine Vapes Last

Disposable nicotine vape pens, or e-cigarettes, come in a variety of sizes. On the smaller end, you’ll find some that have just 0.5 ml (milliliters) of vape juice, or even less. On the larger end, some have as much as 12 ml of liquid or more. But most disposable vape pens in this category have about 1-2 ml of vape juice.

As a general rule, you’ll get about 100 puffs for every ml of liquid. So a 2-ml disposable vape pen will have about 200 puffs. This could last anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, depending on how often you use it and how many puffs you take each time. Of course, nicotine is very addictive, so these devices tend to be finished in a matter of days.

How Long Disposable CBD Vapes Last

Like disposable nicotine vapes, disposable CBD vapes come in different sizes but tend to have about 1-2 ml of vape juice. Unlike nicotine vape pens, CBD vape pens tend to last longer in part because CBD is less likely to be abused. CBD is short for cannabidiol, the compound in the cannabis plant that can help treat pain and anxiety but is neither addictive nor psychoactive.

As with any vaping device, how long a disposable CBD vape pen lasts depends on how often you use it, and how many puffs you take each time. But if you’re new to CBD, you’ll want to take it slow at first. Companies often recommend starting with just 5-10 puffs per dose. Used once daily, this means a 2-ml disposable CBD vape pen could last up to a month.

Those who use their CBD vape pens more frequently may find they last up to a week, or maybe just a couple of days. Heavy users may opt for larger sizes – for instance, a 10-ml vape pen should last about ten times as long as a 1-ml vape pen.

Recap: Vapes Can Last A Couple Days or Up To a Month

To recap, the amount of time disposable vape pens last depends on the size of the vape pen and how frequently you use it. Most vape pens come in 1-2 ml sizes, though you can find some that are even smaller, and some that are much larger. As a general rule, you’ll get about 100 puffs per one ml.

When considering how frequently you’re likely to use a vape pen, this will depend largely on the specific substance you’re using, and why you’re using it. Disposable nicotine pens often last as little as a day or two, as nicotine is a very addictive drug. A CBD pen of the same size may last a bit longer, but if you’re using it frequently for chronic pain, it might only last a few days.
