How Long Do Disposable Vape Pens Last?

Disposable vaporizers are one of the fastest growing segment in the legal cannabis market due to their convenience, price, and ease of use. However, not all disposable vapes are the same quality. How long your disposable vape pen lasts depends on the manufacturer.

High-quality vapes offer great value and convenience without sacrificing experience. They allow users to have all the advantages of disposable vape pens with the reliability of a reusable device.

Today we’re taking a look at the factors that influence how long disposables last.


How Many Draws Does A Disposable Vape Last?

How many draws a disposable vape provides can depend on a number of factors, including how much oil a producer puts into its pens. A .5ml fill should produce around 225 draws, whereas a .25ml fill offers more like 120-125 draws. For vapes with adjustable settings, some other factors include:

  • Vape battery
  • Temperature
  • Length of draw
  • Vape storage

Vape Battery

Your vape pen battery is perhaps the most important factor in how long your disposable vape pens last. After all, batteries are the beating hearts of vape devices. The lifecycles of low-quality vape batteries can end well before their oils have been consumed. Hence, the importance of doing a little research on whichever vape disposables you are considering before making any purchases.

We procure the best vape pen batteries for our disposables. Greentank disposable vapes use Lithium-Ion Ultra-Charge Technology, so you can be sure that they will use up all of the oil before their batteries die.


The higher the temperature is set, the faster you will burn through the oil. While temperature control can help you manage your high, it also determines how long your oil lasts. Reliable temperature controls provide a consistent experience and predictable lifespan for your disposable vape pens.

Length of Draw

The longer your draw, the more oil each puff uses. A larger dose means the tank empties faster. Finding the right balance for your draw length can prolong how long your vape oil lasts. While we’re on the subject, it should also be noted that one’s rate of usage is just as important to consider. Frequent disposable vape users are going to finish their devices quicker than those who only partake on an occasional basis. That really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, given that there’s a finite amount of cannabis oil in each disposable vape. 

Vape Storage

Storing your disposable vape at or near room temperature can actually help to prolong your device’s battery life. Similar to our car engines during the winter, disposable vapes with cold batteries simply require more juice to heat up and function properly than one that has been warmed up. For optimal results and longer battery life, we recommend storing your disposable vape pen between 15˚-25˚C (59˚-77˚F) and holding any cold disposable devices in the palm of your hand for several minutes to warm it up first before using it.

Can You Recharge A Disposable Vape?

The vape pen battery should outlast the oil, so you shouldn’t need to recharge them. As mentioned above, however, cold temperatures do affect battery performance and life. For that reason, we created our M8 with recharging capabilities so that our consumers in colder climates can get every last drop of oil out of their disposable vapes.

Can you Reuse A Disposable Vape Pen?

A disposable vape pen is just that: disposable. They are not intended to be refilled or reused. The reasoning for this is twofold:

  1. Once the coil goes through a full lifecycle, the performance declines.
  2. Disposables use automated filling machines. Their designs are less ideal for manual filling.

For safety and for the best experience, you should dispose of these pens once you use up all of the oil.

Can You Recycle Disposable Vape Pens?

Disposable vape pens could not be recycled properly until only quite recently. Over the last 12 months, however, the industry has seen a number of great developments with regards to vape recycling programs. Disposable vape users can now discard their devices responsibly and effectively in select drop boxes at retailers throughout the US and Canada. These recycling programs are a merit to the industry and show what inspired companies can accomplish when they put their minds and resources together to solve industry-wide challenges.
