When to Replace Your Vape

In Guides

It is often said that nothing lasts forever, and this is also true for electronic devices, including vapes. As parts and batteries age, their performance can be affected, regardless of make or model. You may notice that your vape is less efficient than it once was or may have changed your vaping habits and preferences.

This can lead to the question: "Should I buy a new vape?" Here are some things to consider before you pick up a replacement device.


How long should vapes last?

Vapes have varying lifespans. Disposable vapes have a specified number of puffs before the e-liquid and power run out.

For example:

On the other hand, rechargeable vapes can last much longer. They come with a charger and replacement ePods, allowing you to boost the power and refill the e-liquid each time it runs out.


  • Vuse Pro rechargeable vape batteries should last around 300 charge cycles, and Vuse Pro Pod packs should provide up to 1,900 puffs** per pack.


Signs you should replace your vape

Whether you are getting to the end of a disposable vape or wondering about the efficiency of your rechargeable device, the signs are the same.


Bad taste when vaping

Your vape may taste bad due to a variety of reasons. This can be related to your technique, something that needs to be replaced, or a combination of factors. If you are using a closed-system device, the issue could be your e-liquid. Try a different pod to see if that helps. If the vape produces a burnt taste, it likely has reached the end of its life. Dispose of it responsibly and get a new device.


Damaged or leaking device

Damage to your vape can cause a sudden failure, like leaking e-liquid or electrical malfunction. If your device uses replaceable pods and you experience leaking, try replacing the pod first. If this doesn't work, it might be time to replace your vape.


Weakened battery

Vapes have a shelf life because they contain lithium batteries, which degrade over time. As you use the vape, you may notice that each charge lasts less time than before. If your closed-system vape has a weakened battery, it's time to replace it.


Vaping preferences have changed

Your vaping preferences may change over time, and there is no need to stick with a device that doesn't work for you. If you want to transition to a rechargeable device try a new nicotine strength or flavour, it's time to get a new vape.


Signs you should replace your vape coil

You can replace certain parts when they break or deteriorate using an open-system device. The coil (the heating element inside the vape) can be replaced when it wears out.


  • Here are some signs you should replace your coil:
  • lousy and burnt taste,
  • strange taste,
  • weak vapour,
  • brown e-liquid
  • leaking or gurgling.
