One of the biggest reasons why millions of people around the world have switched to vaping is because it’s dramatically cheaper than smoking. Raising funds and improving public health are always two of any government’s biggest goals, and many federal and state governments around the world have instituted incredibly punitive tobacco taxes
in an attempt to accomplish those goals. Tobacco taxes don’t apply to vaping products in most regions – and even when they do, switching to vaping can still help you save an enormous amount of money.
If you’re a fan of today’s heavily sweetened e-liquids, though, the costs of vaping can really start to creep upward. Sweeteners shorten the life of a vape coil, and if you use enough vape juice per day, you could end up spending as much on replacement pods or coils as you do on e-liquid. That’s one reason why disposable vapes have become so popular – because they allow you to use sweet e-liquids without worrying about coil replacements. When a coil’s flavor starts to change, it’s just about time to replace the device anyway.
In the past, disposable vapes were more about convenience and about introducing smokers to vaping than anything else. They definitely weren’t about saving money because a single device would often cost more than a pack of cigarettes and would seldom last through a full day of use. Today, though, they’ve become something else entirely because the latest disposable vapes like the RandM Tornado 7000
can last thousands of puffs before requiring replacement. In that sense, they’re not just the most convenient vapes on the market – they’re also the cheapest vapes.
A modern disposable vape can last as long as a carton of cigarettes – or even longer – at a fraction of the cost. If you want to enjoy that kind of longevity, though, you’ve got to buy a rechargeable disposable vape.
If you’re new to the burgeoning world of rechargeable disposable vapes, this is the article for you. Reading it, you’re going to learn how these devices work and why you’ve got to try one if you want to use the cheapest vapes on the market.
Why Do Some Disposable Vapes Have Rechargeable Batteries?
If you’ve used disposable vapes for a while, you’re probably used to the idea of a device that you just use until the light starts to blink, and then you throw it away. The fact that there’s nothing to charge or fill is a major part of why disposable vapes are so convenient. Why would you want that to change?
The answer to that question has to do with physical limitations. People want their disposable vapes to last as long as possible. If you divide the cost of a disposable vape by the number of days you use it before throwing it away, that’s how much you spend per day to vape. The longer a device lasts, the less it costs per day.
The problem, though, is that high-capacity batteries are heavy and take up a lot of space. People want longer-lasting disposable vapes, but a device capable of delivering thousands of puffs on a single battery charge would be so large and heavy that no one would want to use it.
So, rechargeable disposable vapes represent a compromise. E-liquid doesn’t take up much space at all, so building disposable vapes with small rechargeable batteries and large e-liquid reservoirs has enabled companies to create disposable vapes that deliver thousands of puffs but still feel nice in your hand and fit comfortably in your pocket.
Recharging a disposable vape once a day might be mildly inconvenient, but it’s significantly less inconvenient than refilling a tank or pod constantly and installing a new atomizer coil every day or two. It’s really no more of an inconvenience than recharging your phone when you come home from work.
Here’s the One Thing You Need to Know About Using a Rechargeable Disposable Vape
Aside from how to use the device – which we’ll discuss next – the most important thing to know about rechargeable disposable vapes is that they almost never include the required charging cables. If you have a cable that fits your device’s charging port – all disposable vapes have either micro USB or USB-C
ports – you can use that cable to recharge your device. If not, the vape shops that sell rechargeable disposable vapes usually carry charging cables as well.
Why don’t rechargeable disposable vapes usually include cables? The answer is actually quite simple – it’s because people expect rock-bottom pricing when they buy disposable vapes. If you had to pay for a charging cable every time you bought a disposable vape, it would inflate the price of each device and increase your vaping costs unnecessarily. In addition, you wouldn’t need all of those extra cables – you’d only need the first one. Eventually, you’d have a drawer full of unwanted USB cables with no purpose. Including a charging cable with each device wouldn’t just increase the price you pay – it would also be wasteful.
How to Use a Rechargeable Disposable Vape
We’ll conclude this article with a brief guide explaining how to use a rechargeable disposable vape. If the only vaping devices that you’ve ever used have been disposable, it’s entirely possible that you’ve never recharged a vape before. Here’s how to do it.
• Open and use the disposable vape as normal. It’s common for a disposable vape to have a sticker on the bottom to block the airflow vent and prevent the device from activating in the package. If your device has a sticker, remove it before vaping. Just like any other disposable vape, a rechargeable device will come out of the package charged and ready to use.
• When it’s time to recharge the device, the light will blink when you try to vape. At that point, you should connect the device to your computer to recharge the battery. Don’t use the wall adapter for a mobile phone or tablet. When you connect the disposable vape to your computer, the device’s light will turn on. Leave it connected until the light turns off or changes color. The battery is fully charged at that point, and you can resume using the device. Recharging a disposable vape usually takes about an hour.
You’re probably used to throwing a disposable vape away when the light starts to blink. You won’t have that cue with a rechargeable device, though, and you can continue using a rechargeable disposable vape until it’s completely out of e-liquid. You’ll know that it’s time to discard the device because it’ll either produce no vapor – or it’ll produce a burnt flavor – when you try to use it
