How to make a disposable vape work after it has died?

14 April 2023

If you’re experiencing issues with a disposable vape that has seemingly died, there are a few things you can try to potentially make it work again. Please note that disposable vapes are designed for single use and are not intended to be recharged or reused, so these suggestions may not always be effective and could potentially pose safety risks. It’s always best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and safety guidelines for your specific disposable vape. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Check the battery: Some disposable vapes may have a manual on/off switch or a pull tab to activate the battery. Make sure the battery is properly engaged or activated as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Check the airflow: If the airflow holes on the disposable vape are clogged, it may not produce vapour. Try gently blowing through the airflow holes or using a thin tool to clear any blockages.
  3. Warm the vape: If the vape has been exposed to cold temperatures, the battery may not work properly. Try warming it up by holding it in your hand for a few minutes or placing it in a warm environment (e.g., a pocket) for a short period, then try using it again.
  4. Check the e-liquid level: If the e-liquid level is low, it may not be reaching the coil and producing vapour. Ensure that the e-liquid level is sufficient and covers the wick, as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Try different puffs: Some disposable vapes may require a specific inhaling technique, such as a slow and steady puff or a harder draw. Experiment with different puffing techniques to see if it makes a difference.
  6. Contact the manufacturer or retailer: If you’ve tried the above suggestions and the disposable vape still doesn’t work, it’s best to contact the manufacturer or retailer for further assistance. They may be able to provide guidance or offer a replacement if the device is still under warranty.

It’s important to note that attempting to modify or tamper with a disposable vape could potentially pose safety risks. If you are unable to make the disposable vape work after it has died, it’s best to dispose of it properly and consider purchasing a new, fully functional device for your vaping needs.
