How To Recharge A Disposable Vape

July 22, 2022

Recharging a disposable vape is a process that certainly can be done. As the name suggests, disposable vapes were not designed to be long-term products. They’re meant to have enough battery so that you can use the vape to its full extent before disposing of it and buying a new one – but sometimes that is not the case. 

There are lots of disposable vapes out there that do not have any easy way to recharge the battery. On the other hand, there are now disposable vapes that were designed with a built-in charging port making it incredibly easy to recharge your vape.  Maybe your favorite disposable vape just ran out of battery and you don’t want to go buy another. Whatever the case may be, there is a solution to recharging your disposable vape. 

Are All Disposable Vapes Rechargeable?

The short answer is yes, but the steps to recharging your vape depend on what type of disposable vape you have. If you have a rechargeable disposable vape with USB-C charging port then you’re in luck! If your disposable vape doesn’t have a USB-C input, then you’re going to need some supplies to get your vape up and running again!

What If My Disposable Vape Doesn’t Have a Charging Port?

If your disposable vape doesn’t have a charging port, then you’re going to need a couple of things to charge your vape’s battery:

  • A pair of scissors, a sharp knife, or a flat head screwdriver – any flat, sharp, and narrow object will work
  • A pair of tweezers for handling wires
  • An old USB charger – you’ll be using the wires

Steps On Recharging Your Disposable

  1. Check the bottom of your disposable and you’ll notice a small crevice at the bottom. Take your knife, scissors, or flathead screwdriver and pry open the bottom piece of the vape
  2. Gently take out the battery inside your vape, just enough to expose the sensor and wires. Be sure to make note of how the wires are fitted since you’ll need to put it back the exact same way once you’re done recharging.
  3. The vape battery will be wrapped in tape, keeping a red wire and a black wire secured. Gently remove the tape.
  4. With your tweezers, take the black and red wires exposed from your USB charger and connect them to metal prongs exposed on each end of your vape’s battery. Be sure that the negative wire on the USB charger is connected to the negative end of the battery, and the same for the positives.
  5. Attach the tape to hold the wires in place while the device charges. Give it a couple of minutes to charge. Only charge it for a couple of minutes, because overcharging your battery could be dangerous.
  6. After your vape battery is charged and ready to go, simply re-adjust your tape, push the battery back into the device, and reattach the bottom end piece.

Precautions To Consider

Taking on a DIY charging project for your disposable vape can be dangerous, so it’s important to know the risks. As far as taking apart your disposable vape, be sure to put all the bits and pieces back exactly as you’ve found them. Another important thing to note is that most disposable vapes are not meant to be recharged, so it is possible that your vape may not work after attempting to charge it. Lastly, overcharging your disposable vape is the most notable thing to be cautious of. Overcharging your vape can easily happen, and if it does you run the risk of your vape overheating, melting, or exploding. Follow the steps above, and you will likely avoid that from happening.

Pro Tip: Buy A Rechargeable Disposable Vape With A Charging Port

Buying a disposable vape with a built-in charging port will make your life a lot easier if your vape runs out of battery. You won’t need to take apart your vape just to recharge it, you’ll simply plug in your USB-C to the charging port and you’re good to go.
