How to Use a Disposable Vape Pen

Are you new to vaping? Maybe you’ve done it for a while and haven’t used a disposable pen since you started. Either way, they are an e-cigarette that quickly gets you vaping, usually without having to refill or recharge the pen.

Do you know how to use a disposable vape pen? Here is all you need to learn about these convenient, reliable and simple vaping devices.

How to Choose a Vape Pen

This isn’t an easy choice with the variety of pens out there. Most are used and thrown away, so you don’t have to do anything. Others require some assembly, recharging and even inserting the cartridge. To best determine which style of vape pen to buy, you need to consider:

  • Size of the device
  • Type of e-liquid
  • Coil type
  • Quality

Vape Pen Size

Disposable vapes are perfectly designed to fit comfortably in your hand and are portable like a cigarette. They are a little shorter and narrower, but for the most part, you can easily transition off tobacco with the same feel. If you want to be more discreet, there are also smaller versions. They can be slipped into the pocket fast and taken along for all your outdoor adventures.

Type of E-liquid

The e-liquid is flavouring, and each disposable pen comes with its juice inside. The selection is wide, with the most popular e-juices pre-filled, but you won’t find everything. A disposable vape pen is ideal for trying different blends to find your favourites.

Vape Pen Coil Type

Coils come in three types: ceramic, quartz and wick. Ceramics will have the purest flavour and the best vaping experience, and while quartz and wick are still good, they are less effective.

Vape Pen Quality

Finally, there is the quality of the device. Pick a disposable pen that is of higher quality, so you get a better experience. You want the battery to last longer than the oil and get the best flavour experience possible. With higher quality comes a higher price and more features.

Now that you know what type of pen to get for your style of vaping, here is how to operate it.

  • Take your vape pen out of the package: It may come in a blister pack or a small cardboard package, and they are usually still small enough to fit in your pocket.
  • Assembly: Most vape pens are ready to go out of the package, while others require you to put the battery and mouthpiece together with other components.
  • Click the button: Some disposable vapes have a button on the side to turn them on. Others just require you to take a drag to work. There will be an indicator light on the device that shows it is working.
  • Take a drag: Inhaling through the mouthpiece is how you get the vapour into your mouth, and if there is no button, this will turn on the indicator light. Breathe in slow and long to get a full hit and enjoy the flavour.
  • Exhale the vapour: You can empty your lungs or mouth and watch the smoke come out.

Most disposable pens should give you well over 100 hits, and depending on how big your inhales are and the temperature, and you could get up to 200 and beyond.

First-timers should take smaller draws to get used to vaping and try new blends or nicotine levels, so they don’t overwhelm themselves. This also will make your pen last longer and help you figure out your tolerance.

Vape Pen Storage

A disposable vape pen is not made for long-term storage, but you still want it to last as long as possible. The best place to keep your pen is in a dry, cool place until you want to use it.

Moisture negatively affects the device, and any extreme cold or hot will lessen the battery life. Direct sunlight is also bad because it can cause clogging from over-saturation. Finally, store your vape device in a safe place, out of the reach of children.

Vape Pen Disposal

A disposable vape pen is designed for limited use. Once the battery is dead, or the e-liquid contents are used up, it is ready to be thrown out. This can be simply done by tossing it in the trash bin, but if you are considering the negative impact it can have on the environment, it can be dropped off in a hazardous material bin. You can’t just throw it in the recycle bin, however. It is better to break down the parts and recycle them separately.

There you have it. All you need to know about using a disposable vape pen. Use this to guide you in your vape pen search and try different ones to enjoy the variety of devices and flavours as you journey down the vaping path.
