what does it mean when a disposable vape blinks?

Whether you’re a veteran vaper or just starting out, you will likely have a question or two about vaping. Vapor 42 is your answer to everything vape. If the light is blinking on your device and you aren’t sure why, it could be for a variety of reasons.

REASONS WHY YOUR VAPE MAY BE BLINKING

LOW BATTERY

More often than not, the blinking light on your vape indicates low battery power. Consider how long you’ve been using the vape and how many puffs it was advertised to have. If you’ve been using it for a while, it’s likely the vape has run out of battery.

Sometimes you can recharge a disposable vape. High-capacity vapes have a USB charging port so that you can recharge the battery and use all the e-liquid before it runs out.

E-LIQUID IS ALMOST EMPTY

Similar to a dead battery, running out of e-liquid can sometimes cause your vape to start blinking. If you’ve been hitting your vape for a few days and it starts to blink, it likely means it’s on its last few puffs.

PUFF TIME EXCEEDED

Each vape pen has a built-in timer that cuts off after extremely long puffs. If you exceed that timer, the device will shut off to prevent overheating and will start blinking to indicate it needs a break. Try taking shorter puffs and see if the blinking stops.

OVERHEATING

A blinking light could also be an indication that your vape is overheating. Because vape devices are made with lithium-ion batteries, they are sensitive to heat. Leaving your device in extreme heat or chain vaping can cause your vape to stop working. Take your device to a more temperature controlled environment and let it cool down for a bit before using it again.

Vape devices are sensitive to heat due to their lithium-ion batteries. If you leave your disposable out in extreme heat or chain vape.

ACCIDENTS

Sometimes you may drop your vape in a puddle of water or leave it in the car on a hot summer day. These accidents can cause significant damage to the atomizer coil or the lithium battery and eventually cause your device to short circuit. If your device has recently gone through the wringer and is blinking, it could be a sign of damage.
