How to Calculate How Many Puffs in E-Liquid for Disposable Vapes

2023-05-16 10:29:14

Disposable vapes have drawn consumer attention to how many puffs they can get per device, with 600 puffs being the magic number. You may be curious to know how this translates to e-liquid used in refillable vape kits. It’s not an exact science as there are a number of variables involved, including the frequency and duration of your inhale. Even disposable vape manufacturers who use machine testing, round off to the nearest hundred while inserting the word ‘approximately’ somewhere in the small print.

But we can get a pretty good idea of how much bang you can get for your buck, so let's dig in.

How Are Vape Puffs Calculated?

It's best to break this down according to your vaping style as this will dictate all the other factors involved.

Let's look at refillable MTL vaping kits that use either freebase or nic salt e-liquid at a 50/50 PG/VG consistency. We can use disposable vapes as a baseline as they have a 2ml capacity that delivers about 600 puffs, and they use the same type of e-liquid that refillable kits do.

All vape kits in the UK have a 2ml e-liquid capacity, so you can work out that a 10ml bottle of 50/50 e-liquid should give you about 3000 puffs.

But here’s where things can get tricky. The wide range of coils on offer for MTL vapes can have an impact, lower resistant coils like 0.8ohm, offer an airier vape that will use more power and vape e-liquid at a faster rate. Disposable vapes generally contain a 1.2ohm or 1.6ohm coil. So even though you are using an MTL vape, you may be using more e-liquid if you opt for a lower resistance coil.

How Long Does 10ml Vape Juice Last?

How much time this lasts you is a different story, it depends on how regularly you are using your vape. Ideally, you should be matching your nicotine level to satisfy your cravings and if you find that you are constantly vaping, you may need to up your nicotine strength.

To give you a better idea, disposables that contain 20mg of nic salts are marketed as being equivalent to over 40 cigarettes. So a 10ml bottle with the equivalent nicotine strength should equate to about 200 cigarettes or 10 packs.
