Reading Time: 3 minutes

Vaping is a fun and satisfying experience and the technology is simply a marvel to behold. However, with all cutting-edge tech, you can run into issues at times. But don’t worry, VaporFi has your back. We’ve compiled all the most frequently reported disposable vape and e-cig issues right here. The experts at VaporFi will explain how to fix a disposable vape and get your vape working in top tip order. So let’s dive right into it… 

The 1st thing you’ll want to take stock of is what the light is doing. Most disposable vapes have an indicator light that tells you that the device is in use. So everything could be normal. However, the indicator light could be turning red to indicate low power. A blinking light can also signify a dying battery. 

How to Charge/Recharge a Disposable Vape

Most disposable vapes are not rechargeable. However, some newer, more advanced disposables are. To recharge these devices, here is a general guide: 

  1. Unscrew the cartridge off of the battery
  2. Plug in the Micro USB male into the Disposable Vape device.
  3. Plug the USB male into a USB port to start charging.

How Much are Disposable Vapes?

Disposable vapes can vary in price due to several factors such as e-liquid capacity, battery life, and component resilience. However, most disposable devices are either around $10, such as the YAYA MAX NTN 2500 Puffs Disposable Vape or $20, such as the Meta Drop Rechargeable Disposable.

How Long Does a Disposable Vape Last?

Most disposable vapes last about three to five days on average. However, this depends on how frequently the vaper hits the vape. Most disposable vapes list how many puffs they’re rated for as well as e-liquid capacity to help you choose the right device for you. 

How to Fix a Burnt Coil in a Disposable Vape

Unfortunately, unlike more elaborate vape pod mods and devices, disposable vapes don’t offer the ability to swap out burnt coils. You’re better off disposing of the device and purchasing a new one. However, a burnt taste can occur if there’s not enough e-liquid on the wick inside your atomizer coil. So allowing some time between hits to let more e-liquid soak could be a solution to the burnt taste. 

How to Fix a Disposable Vape that Won’t Hit

Sometimes, a disposable device won’t hit because of an air bubble in the cartridge that is preventing airflow. Try flicking or tapping the side of the cartridge to get rid of the air bubble. You can also set the device down for several minutes to allow the wick to absorb more juice. If you do this and the device still doesn’t hit, it’s time for a fresh one. 

How to Refill a Disposable Vape

There is usually one reason to refill a disposable device. Usually these devices cannot be recharged so there isn’t a purpose to refilling them. 

However if you want to try refilling it, follow these steps

  1. Open the vape pen by unscrewing the cartridge from the battery 
  2. Use a syringe to carefully refill the cartridge with e-juice
  3. Screw the cartridge back onto the battery. 

How to Stop a Disposable Vape from Autofiring 

A vape will autofire when there is a malfunction in the draw activation sensor. This can occur if you blow into your vape or wind blows into your vape. To stop autofiring, turn the device off if possible and try unscrewing the carding from the battery and then screwing it back on.
