How long does an e-cig last?

By IQOS Team

how long ecigs last

As you probably already know, there are many different kinds of vaping devices, and their lifespan varies from one to the other. In the market, you can find many different kinds of electronic cigarettes, but in this article we will focus on two main ones - the disposable or the non-disposable ones. The latter is designed to be reusable with refillable e-liquid or replacement pods, whereas the former cannot be used once its e-liquid has been consumed and its battery is depleted.

Disposable vape lifespan

Disposable e-cigarettes are what their name suggests: you can use them as long as their e-liquid and battery haven’t run out. How many times you will be able to use it may depend on the brand, the power capabilities, or the amount of e-liquid. Another factor that determines how long your disposable device will last is the frequency with which you use it throughout the day.

Non-disposable vape lifespan

Unlike disposable vaping devices, non-disposable vapes last longer, since they are refillable and rechargeable. But how long is "longer"? Well… It can be a year or possibly more. There are many kinds of rechargeable e-cigarettes, which offer their users different experiences, namely pen atomizers, pod devices and mods.

As you can imagine, the lifespan of non-disposable e-cigarettes depends on many factors. Surely some have to do with you and others depend on the device you have chosen. But let's see how you can make sure your e-cigarette will last for the longest time possible:

  • Ensure the vape is stored correctly within its case.
  • Be prepared to replace certain parts over time.
  • Monitor the device’s coil and cartridge and replace them accordingly where possible and in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Opt for a reliable electronic cigarette from a well-known manufacturer. Usually, a "branded" product may last longer and will be of better quality.

In general, rechargeable e-cigarettes can be cheaper than disposable ones, as well as more environmentally friendly, since you don't have to throw them away every time they run out of e-liquid or battery.

Even their e-liquid can last for a long time, without you having to constantly buy a new one, which can increase the cost of maintaining and using your device. Just be careful to check your e-liquid so that it doesn't expire. You can easily look for signs of wear and tear, such as alteration of its taste or even its colour. In such cases, we would recommend that you throw it away and buy a new one.

In general, how long your e-liquid lasts depends on how often you vape. Another thing we need to remind you at this point is to check the e-liquid’s level in your device and refill it accordingly, in order to avoid burning your coil and cotton and getting an unpleasant "burnt" taste.

Reliable vapes and other smoke-free alternatives

If you are an adult smoker, thinking of taking the first step towards a smoke-free world, away from the unpleasant cigarette smell, one option you can choose is a closed pod vaping system. These devices consist of individual parts such as a battery and an e-liquid pod, which are connected and allow you to vape.

IQOS VEEV is one example of this and which uses MESH™ heating technology to prevent overheating of the e-liquid. IQOS VEEV is designed to work particularly with VEEV pods, to ensure that the liquid cannot be altered. You can always check the e-liquid level through its clear window and replace the pod easily, with no mess.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Smoking alternatives are not risk free. They deliver nicotine, which is addictive. They are intended for use by adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products and are by no means a cessation method. The best option to reduce the health risks associated with the use of tobacco and nicotine products is to quit their use altogether. However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, switching completely to vaping or heated tobacco products could be a better choice than continuing to smoke.
