When considering the switch from tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, many customers want to know how long electronic cigarettes last. There’s no easy answer to this question because it depends on how often you light up. Consider how a heavy smoker goes through more packs than a light smoker – or how people smoke differently during times of stress. Similarly, some electronic cigarette vapers may go through electronic cigarettes more quickly than others.
To help you determine how long e cigarettes last, we’ve made a list of all the components of an electronic cigarette, from e liquid to e-cig cartridges, to help you determine how long an electronic cigarette will last for you. Keep in mind that these are just general guidelines. The actual lasting time is determined in part by the user and in part by the individual components.
Our e-liquid comes in different sizes, depending on your needs. A small sized bottle of 15mL is perfect if you want to try out a new flavor. But, just because it is small, doesn’t mean it’s not going to last you for quite some time! We recommend using just 5-10 drops of e liquid, so a little will go a long way. On average, a pack a day style smoker will be able to make this small bottle last for an entire month.
By contrast, if you are a value shopper, then you may want to try our 60mL e liquid. One bottle is equivalent to 60 packs of cigarettes. You don’t have to worry that the flavor will dissipate because our e-liquid flavors are meant to last. In fact, by following our storage directions, your e-liquid flavor can have a shelf life of up to 2 years!
How much liquid nicotine you go through depends on your individual preferences. For smokers that have long since quit smoking, but still have an oral fixation, you likely won’t purchase liquid nicotine at all for use with your electronic cigarette. How much liquid nicotine you use depends on how much you need. Our liquid nicotine is strong stuff and is usually mixed with VG or PG.
When it comes to e-cig cartridges, the main thing is to not overfill them. Different manufacturers offer different advice on refilling, but we recommend using 10 drops of liquid in each cartridge. Ten drops lasts roughly the same as one pack of tobacco cigarettes, which means that you get more bang for your buck with e-cig cartridges. For more on this, check out our page on refilling e-cig cartridges.
E-cig cartridges filler can be replaced a nearly infinite number of times. Overall, plan to replace your e-cig cartridges filler whenever you change your flavor or once a week, whichever comes first, when you clean the cartridge. Check out our page on cartridge filler on instructions on the best material to use for filler and directions on how to fill your e-cig cartridges.
In addition to e liquid, liquid nicotine and e-cig cartridges, you may be curious to know how long other parts of your electronic cigarette can be expected to last.
Electronic cigarette batteries vary on how long they last. You can usually expect up to 10 hours, allowing you to vape frequently without worrying about getting a dead battery. To get the most out of your battery, be sure to follow proper instructions, including allowing your battery to fully die before recharging. You don’t have to worry about getting stuck without a charge, because you can pretty easily recharge your e cigarette anywhere – even on the go via “anywhere” chargers that work in your car or a USB port.
Even heavy smokers have found that they are able to save significant amounts of money by using e cigarettes rather than buying packs of tobacco smokes. Vaping costs significantly less per session than smoking, thanks to e liquids that last, as well as e-cig cartridges and battery chargers that take much of the expense away.
Whatever your reason for choosing an electronic cigarette, you will most likely see significant savings, even after minimal use.
