There’s no doubt that disposable vape pens are rapidly becoming a more popular solution. Not only do these handy tools offer excellent versatility and practicality, but they’re also affordable and easy to take with you. As such, disposable vapes could be ideal whether you’re on the go or simply need a simple vaping solution. However, after opening your new disposable vape pen, you have stumbled across a question: why do disposable vapes have a charging port? After all, they’re supposed to be a temporary measure – so can I charge a disposable vape?

While this might seem a little counter-intuitive, it’s actually entirely possible to charge many disposable vape pens, so long as you know how to do so. With this thought in mind, today, we’re looking at how to charge your disposable vape and, critically, consider why your disposable vape has a charging port in the first place.

 

What Is a Disposable Vape?

Before we go any further, we should first outline a disposable vape. A disposable vape is a temporary alternative to traditional vape pens, and you will not need to buy new coils or replace coils over time. The disposable vape runs out once the e-liquid within the vape pen itself is expended.

 

Why Do Disposable Vapes Have a Charging Port?

Since disposable vapes are designed to be thrown out after use, it’s easy to wonder: why can I charge a disposable vape? This feature is in place to meet market demands which call for larger amounts of e-liquid to be included within the vape pen. Due to the increased volume of e-liquid, many consumers found that the battery life didn’t last long enough to finish the e-liquid, meaning that charging their disposable vape became necessary. Thus, modern vape pens now include a charging port to ensure consumers can fully use their vape pens.

How Long Does the Battery last in a Disposable Vape Pen?

Unsurprisingly, every vape pen is a little different, which means that the battery life before charging your disposable vape pen will differ. However, most disposable vape pens will last for around one day, depending on how regularly you use the vape pen before they need to be charged. Generally, around 400 puffs will be the limit for most common limit – although some batteries can be up to 850 mAh in power, which may provide longer use.

 

How Do I Charge a Disposable Vape Pen?

If you need to charge your disposable vape pen, you’ll first need to connect the device’s charging port with the charger – you should receive a USB cable along with the vape pen itself. Then, simply connect the vape pen and charger to a power supply, and then wait for the vape pen to fully charge.

You can tell if your pen is fully charged once the charging light on your disposable vape pen turns green. Although, you should always check your brand’s specific charging instructions to ensure this is the case.

 

Is it Safe to Charge My Vape with a Phone Charger?

At this point, you may be wondering: is it safe to charge your vape pen with a phone charger since both use a USB charger? It’s understandable to wonder this; technically, this should be fine. However, you should always check that the USB charger will fit your device specifically since not every USB will necessarily be right for your vape pen. We should also point out here that, in some cases, if your charger is a USB wall adapter, you may notice that it doesn’t charge well. A fixed USB charger will often also be poorer in terms of charging quality overall.

 

More Questions (FAQs)

At this point, we’ve outlined some of the most crucial things you should need to know about using a disposable vape pen. However, we also recommend considering the following questions to ensure you’re getting the most from your new vape pen.

 

1. How do disposable vapes work?

Disposable vape pens are designed to offer a shorter-term vaping experience than traditional vape pens. They contain e-liquid directly, which means that they are not refillable like normal vape pens. However, you can charge your disposable vape temporarily using a USB cable to provide a slightly longer vaping experience. Your disposable vape will continue to work until the e-liquid in the disposable vape runs out.

 

2. Can you charge while vaping?

While you can technically charge your disposable vape while vaping, we would recommend against doing so. Using your vape while it is charging will mean the vape takes much longer to charge. We recommend looking for a device with “pass-through technology” if you want to charge your vape pen while vaping for the best results.

 

3. Are disposable e-cigs safe?

It’s easy to assume that disposable e-cigs (vape pens) would be less safe due to their disposable nature. However, when used according to proper vaping standards, disposable e-cigs shouldn’t provide any more risk than other forms of vape pens. Plus, since disposable e-cigs are not kept around for years, there may be lower chances of malfunctions compared to traditional vape pens.

 

4. How long does a disposable vape pen take to fully charge?

Every vape pen is different; as such, there’s no set time for how long a disposable vape pen takes to fully charge. However, you can usually finish charging your disposable vape pen within around four hours at maximum. Some other vape pens with less powerful batteries or batteries that are not fully drained may only take an hour or so to fully charge.

 

5. How do you know if the battery of a vape pen is fully charged?

Generally speaking, the charging light on your vape pen should turn green once the vape pen has fully charged. However, if you have been charging your vape pen for the best part of a day and it still does not show as green, you may need to consider whether the device could be malfunctioning. Alternatively, check the instruction manual to check whether the charging buttons on your device are different.

 

Final Thoughts

If you’ve been looking for a simple and practical alternative to traditional vape pens, a disposable vape might be the ideal solution. And, since you can charge your disposable vape pen, this could be an excellent option to consider if you’ve been struggling to choose between a traditional and disposable model.
