Disposable vapes have become increasingly popular due to their portability, ease of usage, and hassle-free experience.

However, to ensure a satisfying and safe disposable vaping experience, it’s important to avoid some common mistakes that can turn your vaping session into a nightmare.

In this blog post, we will highlight some of the most-occurring mistakes when we do (often unintentionally) while using disposable vapes.

So, get ready to enjoy seamless vaping!

Common Mistakes of Disposable Vapes

Among vapers, the popularity of disposable vapes has surged, especially among late millennials and early Gen Z.

Well, thanks to these low-maintenance, flavorful devices which are not just convenient and portable but also simple in nature and are pocket-friendly.

Avoid these mistakes and get the best of your disposable vapes.

#1. Inhaling Forcefully

Disposable vapes are quite different from traditional cigarettes, they require slow and smooth puffing; applying force can heat up the device and end up ruining your grip and overall vaping experience.

Here’s why you should inhale forcefully;

  • Dry Hits:Forceful inhalation can lead to dry hits, especially with disposables that have limited e-liquid capacity. Also, taking gentle, steady puffs allows the wick to absorb e-liquid effectively, increasing the richness of the flavor.
  • Overheating:Inhaling forcefully can cause the heating element to overheat. Continuous forceful puffs can strain the heating element, potentially leading to disturbing device performance, battery life, or device failure.
  • E-Liquid Leakage:Forceful inhalation may create excessive negative pressure, causing e-liquid leakage. So, don’t inhale forcefully and avoid messy vaping experiences.

It’s generally recommended to take gentle, consistent puffs, allowing the device to deliver a smooth and satisfying vapor.

We recommend reading the instructions provided with the specific disposable, as some devices may have specific recommendations regarding inhalation techniques.

#2 Ignoring Battery Safety

Disposable vapes come with pre-charged batteries typically measured by the number of puffs, depending on the brand.

A lot of times we ignore the battery indicator or fail to keep track of their usage, which makes the disposable produce a burnt smoke-like flavor.

Therefore, it is essential to remain aware of the battery health of your disposable vape; if you don’t know how to ensure the battery health of disposable vapes, follow these.

  1. Store unused disposable vapes in a cool and dry place.
  2. Avoid exposing disposables to extreme temperatures, such as direct sunlight or excessive heat.
  3. Use and then dispose of your vapes, as they are designed for a limited lifespan
  4. Follow the recommended usage guidelines provided by the manufacturer.
  5. Dispose of used ones in accordance with local regulations. Some areas have specific guidelines for the disposal of e-cigarettes, including batteries.
  6. While disposable vapes have built-in batteries, it’s still important to avoid exposing the device to excessive physical impact or harsh conditions.

Remember, disposable vapes are not for long-term use, and they carry non-replaceable and non-rechargeable batteries, so it’s better to switch to a new disposable vape once the current one is depleted.

#3 Wrong Nicotine Strength

Disposable vapes are available in various nicotine strengths to accommodate different preferences.

Choosing the wrong nicotine strength can lead to an unsatisfying vaping experience. We suggest you consider your nicotine tolerance and vaping intensity before selecting a disposable vape.

Do you know what happens when you select the wrong nicotine strengths?

Here you go…

  1. Nicotine Overload: This happens when you choose nicotine beyond your tolerance level; so, if feel dizziness, nausea, headaches, or even an unpleasant sensation in your throat while vaping or right after, stop using the device immediately.
  2. Harsh Throat Hit: Nicotine strength affects throat hits, the sensation you feel in the throat when inhaling the vapor. If the nicotine strength is too high, you will feel harsher, uncomfortable, or painful throat hits.
  3. No Satisfaction: If the nicotine strength is too low/high then your nicotine cravings, you may find dissatisfied after vaping. This can lead to an increased frequency of vaping or seeking alternative sources of nicotine.

To ensure a satisfying vaping experience with a disposable vape, select a nicotine strength that matches your personal preferences and tolerance.

Not sure about your nic tolerance?

Simple start with a lower strength and gradually adjust as needed based on your experience.

#4 Incorrect Disposal

Disposing of a disposable vape incorrectly can have various consequences, including:


  • Battery Hazards: The built-in lithium-ion batteries can pose a fire hazard or release hazardous chemicals if liter openly. Also, damaged or punctured batteries cause leaks, fires, or explosions, when in contact with any conductive materials.
  • Environmental Impact: Disposable vapes contain batteries and other components that can be harmful to the environment; if not disposed of properly, they end up in landfills or contribute to litter.
  • Legal Consequences: Improper disposal of electronic waste may be in violation of local regulations or waste management laws. Failure to adhere to these regulations may result in penalties or fines.

To ensure proper disposal of a disposable vape:

  • Research the regulations and guidelines in your area regarding the disposal of electronic waste and batteries.
  • Look for authorized recycling centers, drop-off points, or collection facilities that accept electronic waste.
  • Contact the manufacturer/retailer for disposing of their products; you can check their website or contact their customer support for guidance on how to properly dispose of their devices.

Vaping Up!

To make the best of your disposable vape and ensure a smooth and enjoyable vaping experience, avoid these mistakes.
