Getting started with vaping can be expensive at first, but it gets relatively cheaper after the initial stage. If you have selected the right vape from your nearby vape shop, you are unlikely to need a replacement any time soon. You will only need to clean and maintain the device and replace small parts as necessary over time.
That being said, it is still important to know how long the average vape lasts, in addition to the lifespans of each individual part. Most of these parts are relatively inexpensive, but you can better plan and adjust to their maintenance needs if you have a better understanding of their longevity.
As such, we have created this article to talk about how long vapes and their components last.
1. Vape coils
The coil is the part of the device through which heat is transmitted, turning e-juices into vapour. There is an array of different options to use in your device, all with their own advantages. On average, a well-designed coil will last four to seven days with moderate use. You can expect your coils to last longer if you are an infrequent vaper, and shorter if you vape more intensely.
It is important to remember that vape coil lifespans are not dependent on time, but the frequency and intensity of use.
Like the coil, batteries are dependent on the frequency of use instead of time. A brand new battery is likely to give you around 300 puffs from a full charge. For moderate users, this might mean a whole week before it is necessary to recharge again.
However, as with any rechargeable battery, your vape battery will store less and less power as it reaches the end of its life cycle. Vape shops recommend ordering a replacement within a year so you won’t have to keep recharging.
3. Vape pens
The average vape pen has an average of 150 seconds of inhalation. If the average person inhales for about 3 seconds at a time, that means you’ll need a new vape pen in about 50 puffs. Again, the longevity of this device depends on the intensity of your use.
As we’ve reiterated throughout this article, the lifespan of a device and its parts depends on the user’s habits. The more you use your device, the shorter its lifespan. With regular repair and maintenance, you can expect your device to last six to seven months.
If you’ve been keeping up with your device’s performance, you would likely have replaced every part of it within six to twelve months. By that point, you would have renewed your device’s lifespan entirely, giving it roughly another year. If you’re making major replacements, it is recommended that you replace every part to have a fresh start.
The answer to how long your device will last is about six to twelve months, depending on the intensity of your use. The wonderful thing about this is that if you’ve properly maintained and replaced the parts regularly, it is likely to last longer and breathe new life into your device each time.
