 How Long Do Vape Pens Last?

When you’re in the market for a nicotine vape pen, it’s only natural to wonder how long it will last. The short answer? It depends! A lot goes into how long a vape pen will last, such as what kind of pen you’re buying (disposable or refillable), the puff count, how often you vape, and the quality of vape pen you buy. Let’s take these one at a time and see if we can get a better answer.

Disposable V. Refillable Vape Pens Matters

Obviously, there will be a difference in how long a disposable pen lasts as opposed to a refillable vape pen. But at what cost? And what’s your goal for the pen? 


Disposable vape pens are meant to be discarded once the e-liquid has been used. By design, they don’t last as long as refillable pens. However, the cost of disposable pens should be measured against not only the initial investment of the refillable pen but also the ongoing investment of e-liquid, batteries, replacement coils, and more.


Refillable vape pens can either be refilled with e-liquid purchased separately and poured into the tank or reused by changing the cartridge. Most refillable or reusable pens are also rechargeable.  


Another consideration when choosing to decide between refillable and disposable vape pens is the simplicity of prep, use, and flexibility with disposables. Want a different flavor today? Buy a disposable bundle and grab a different flavor pen when you want to switch things up instead of waiting for the current flavor of e-liquid to be finished. Plus, disposables are ready to use right out of the box without filling, charging, or even priming. Just inhale and enjoy.

Puff Count Matters

The puff count of the pen you buy directly correlates with how long the vape pen lasts. If you are a light vaper, new to vaping, or love to switch up the flavors regularly, even throughout the day, a lower count pen such as IGNITE’s V3 line of pens, with approximately 300 draws per pen. Looking for something a little longer-lasting in your favorite flavor? Check out the V15s, with 1500 puffs per pen. Or, if you want the longest-lasting disposable vape pen, try one of the incredible flavors in the rechargeable line of V30s, offering 3,000+ puffs per pen.

How Often You Vape Matters

How long your vape pen will last is directly related to how often you use it. The more frequently you puff, and even how long you draw on the pen each time, will affect how long the pen can last. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is that 300 puffs is the approximate equivalent of 1 standard (20-count) pack of cigarettes. So, if you used to smoke a pack a day, a 300 puff count pen will last approximately a day, whereas a V30 will last a week and a half at that vaping frequency.

Quality Matters

In vape pens, you definitely get what you pay for. If you buy the cheapest disposable vape pen on the market, expect to have a cheap experience. This could mean the e-liquid loses flavor quickly. Or it could disappoint in how long the vape battery lasts. But disposable doesn’t have to mean low quality.


In fact, some of the most luxurious, premium vape pens available are disposable. Buying a high-quality product means the battery will last through every drop of e-liquid, provide you with a smooth draw, and feel aesthetically pleasant in both your hand and mouth.


You don’t have to spend a fortune to vape luxury. You just have to choose IGNITE.
