Why do disposable electronic cigarettes have charge ports?
There is no doubt that disposable vaping pens are fast becoming a more popular solution. These handy tools not only offer great versatility and utility but are also affordable and easy to carry. So whether you’re on the go or just need a simple vaping solution, disposable vapes are ideal. As everyone knows, when you open the newly bought disposable pod, you accidentally discovered a problem: why does the disposable pod have a charging port? After all, they’re supposed to be a temporary measure — so can I charge a disposable e-cigarette?
While this may seem counterintuitive, it’s actually entirely possible to charge many disposable vape pens, as long as you know how to do it. With that in mind, today, we’re looking at how to charge your disposable vape, and, crucially, consider why your disposable vape has a charging port in the first place.
What is a disposable electronic cigarette?
Before we go any further, we should start with an overview of disposable e-cigarettes. Disposable vapes are a temporary replacement for traditional vape pens, and you don’t need to buy new coils or replace them over time. A disposable vape will run out if the vape pen itself runs out of e-liquid.
Why do disposable electronic cigarettes have charge ports?
Since the design of disposable vapes is to be thrown away after use, it is easy to have questions: why can disposable vapes be recharged? This feature is in response to market demand for more e-liquid to be included in vape pens. Due to the increased volume of e-liquid, many users find that the battery life is not enough to use up the e-liquid, which means that the disposable electronic cigarette needs to be charged. As a result, modern vape pens now include a charging port to ensure consumers can get the most out of their vape pens.
How long does the battery of a disposable electronic cigarette pen last?
Unsurprisingly, each vape pen is slightly different, which means that the battery life of a disposable vape pen before recharging will vary. However, most disposable vape pens last about a day, depending on how often you use the vape pen before needing to recharge. Typically, around 400 ports will be the most common limit – although some batteries go up to 850mAh, which may provide longer usage times.
How to charge the disposable electronic cigarette pen?
If you need to charge a disposable vape pen, you’ll first need to connect the device’s charging port to the charger — you should have received a USB cable and the vape pen itself. Then, just connect the e-cigarette and charger to a power source and wait for the e-cigarette to fully charge.
You can tell if the pen is fully charged if the charging light on the disposable vape pen turns green. However, you should always check your brand’s specific charging instructions to make sure this is the case.
Is it safe to charge my vape with a phone charging plug?
Speaking of this, you may think: Since they are all USB chargers, is it safe to charge e-cigarettes with mobile phone charging plugs? It’s understandable to be confused about this; technically, it should be fine. However, you should always check that a USB charger is suitable for your device, as not every USB will necessarily fit 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. Fixed USB chargers are also generally inferior in terms of overall charge quality.
More Questions (FAQs)
So far, we’ve outlined some of the most important things you need to know when using a disposable vape pen. However, we also recommend considering the following questions to ensure you get the most out of your new vaping pen.
1. How do disposable pods work?
Disposable vaping pens are designed to provide a shorter vaping experience than traditional vaping pens. They contain e-liquid directly, which means they are not refillable like regular e-cigarette pens. However, you can use a USB cable to temporarily charge your disposable e-cigarette and 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 it be charged while pumping?
While you can technically recharge disposable e-cigarettes while vaping, we recommend against doing so. Using the vape while charging means the vape takes longer to charge. If you want to charge your pen while vaping for the best results, we recommend looking for a device with “pass-through technology”.
3. Are disposable electronic cigarettes safe?
It’s easy to think that disposable e-cigarettes (vapepens) are less safe due to their disposable nature. However, when used according to the correct vaping standards, disposable vaping is no more risky than other forms of vaping pens. In addition, since disposable e-cigarettes are not stored for many years, they may be less likely to malfunction than traditional e-cigarette pens.
4. How long does it take to fully charge the disposable electronic cigarette?
Every vape pen is different; therefore, there is no set time for how long it takes to fully charge a disposable vape pen. However, you can usually recharge a disposable pen in about four hours at most. Some other e-cigarettes with low battery power or batteries that are not fully drained may only take an hour or so to fully charge.
5. How to know whether the battery of the electronic cigarette is fully charged?
Normally, when the e-cigarette is fully charged, the charging light on the e-cigarette should turn green. However, if you’ve charged your vapepen for the better part of a day and it still doesn’t turn green, you may want to consider the device to be malfunctioning. Alternatively, check the owner’s manual to see if the charging button is different on your device.
If you’ve been looking for a simple and functional alternative to traditional vape pens, disposable vapes could be the ideal solution. And, since you can charge a disposable vape pen, it might be a great option if you’ve been choosing between traditional and disposable models.
