How to Recharge a Disposable Vape: 3 Easy Steps and Tips for Charging

Table of Contents

News flash: you can recharge a disposable vape! Of course, this hasn't always been the case. In the early days, disposable vapes were inherently non-rechargeable. However, vape design has come a long way, and you'll often find that new models have a charging option.

Not only does recharging extend a vape's lifespan, but it means you can squeeze every last drop out of it. If you've never charged up before, here is your no-nonsense guide on recharging a disposable vape in three easy steps.

Why It's Important to Charge Your Disposable Vape

There are two types of disposable vapes:
  • Rechargeable 
  • Non-rechargeable 
In the early days of vape devices, most, if not all, were in the non-rechargeable category. This meant many people were wasting product as the device battery died long before the cartridge was empty.

This was especially true for folks who only vaped for an occasional session. Batteries tend to fade over time, and countless disposable vapes, lost in the back of a drawer, no longer held enough power to get through what was inside.

This frustration started a revolution in vape design. Now, disposable vapes are increasingly rechargeable. So, no matter how long your device has sat unused or how large the cart is, you can keep recharging until the very last drop. 

How To Recharge Your Disposable Vape

Never recharged a disposable vape? It's as simple as charging your phone and may even use the same charger.
  1. Plug in a USB-C charger
  2. Charge for up to an hour
  3. Remove the USB-C charging cable.
All Hometown Hero rechargeable disposable vapes have a single charging port, which fits a USB-C cable. We recommend a low-capacity charger (ex., your computer or a low-capacity charging block).

Once connected, the indicator light will flash as it charges.

How do you know it's fully charged?

Once your disposable vape is fully charged, the indicator light will stop flashing, and it's ready to unplug.

Now, it's time to get down to business.

Tips for Charging Your Disposable Vape

Use a low-capacity charger

There are two types of power sources for recharging vaping devices: low-capacity and high-capacity. To protect the longevity of the vape battery, we recommend only using low-capacity chargers, like your computer or a low-capacity wall charger.

Don't charge overnight

We also recommend not leaving your vape plugged in overnight. For starters, it will eventually reduce the vape's battery capacity, as we mentioned above. 

Secondly, as is the case with all batteries hooked up to a trickle low-capacity charge, there is the potential to generate a little heat. You may notice this on your phone or smartwatch. Since the Hometown Hero vapes take less than an hour to charge fully, you should unplug them overnight to avoid heat-related problems or battery degradation. 

Unplug once charged

Did you know that keeping devices plugged in, especially when 100 percent charged, can degrade the battery over time? If you keep your disposable vape around for the long haul, you'll want to charge it for 30 to 60 minutes.

This is more than enough time for it to reach full capacity and, once unplugged, will help protect an extended battery life.

That being said, don't leave your vapes to charge somewhere unattended, like your car. Some cars will charge even when not running. So leaving it overnight in your car will overcharge the battery.
