How Long Does a Disposable Vape Pen Last?

If you’ve considered buying a disposable vape pen for the first time, you’ve likely wondered how long that vape pen will last you. It’s a common question we hear from our first time customers, and it’s no wonder – people want to be able to know how much value they’ll receive from the product.

If it lasts two weeks, that $30 vape pen might be a better value than if it lasted just two days. If you’ve never used a vape pen before, a good rule of thumb is it might last you one-to-four weeks. We acknowledge that is quite the range, however, there are so many personal variables that impact the length of use, including your familiarity with CBD, vape pens, desired effect, etc.

In general, there are a few factors that play into how long a disposable vape pen will last and we’ll touch on all three in this article. In summary, how long a disposable vape pen will last is determined by:

  • How frequently you use the vape pen (termed a “draw”)
  • Strength of the draw
  • Volume of liquid present in the vape pen at the start

How Frequently You Use The Vape Pen

If you use a vape pen several times a day, then it will not last as long if you only used it a few times a week. If you’ve never used a vape pen before, this will be hard to determine for yourself.

Most consumers will want to use a vape pen for some desired effect – to relax, de-stress, reduce anxiety, or minimize some aches and pains – and if you’re new to vaping, you just don’t know how much you’ll need.

Volume of Liquid Present in the Vape Pen at the Start

Have you ever opened a brand new bag of chips, only to find it’s more than half empty at the start? So frustrating! You think, “Why did I just buy a bag of air with some chips in it?” Well, a similar principle applies here with vape pens.

If you purchase a vape pen that has a small amount of liquid, well, then, it won’t last you as long. When searching for vape pens, see if you can find out who much volume of liquid the vape pen comes with. Unfortunately, this information isn’t always advertised, but we here at Halso seek to make it readily available.

In general, you can expect about ~220 draws from a 0.5mL vape pen, and thus, about 110-115 from a 0.25mL vape pen. Again, we qualify this guidance with there are many external factors at play, so your actual experience may vary.

For example, the Stanley Brother’s Vape Pen comes with 0.5mL of liquid, which is a very comfortable amount, especially for anyone who is new to vaping.

Strength of the Vape Pen Draw

How hard or long you inhale is typically termed the “draw”. If you have a long draw, you will consume more of the CBD vape oil present. The weaker or briefer the draw, the longer your vape pen will last.

This might seem like common sense or obvious to our veteran CBD users or former smokers, but it’s important to point out for those who are new to CBD.

So, while we acknowledge it can be difficult to say how long a disposable vape pen will last, particularly for new customers, we hope this article helped you understand the different factors at play. The best way is to take that first step and try the vape pen. Only then will you truly be able to know!
