How long do Geek Bars last?
It’s safe to say the Geek Bar has created quite a buzz since it arrived on the scene. Predominantly aimed at beginners or vapers on the go, these hassle-free disposable units have become the go-to choice for smokers looking to kick their habit. But with so many beginners drawn to disposables, many of these inexperienced users find themselves asking questions like ‘how many puffs in a Geek Bar?’ and ‘how long do Geek Bars last?’
If you’re one of those people who’s new to vaping and you’re not quite sure what to expect from your Geek Bar disposable device, fear not as we’re on-hand with all the answers!
How long will a Geek Bar Last?
So you’ve just picked your new device, but as a beginner you’re unsure what to make of it and suddenly you find yourself wondering ‘how long does a Geek Bar last?’. That’s perfectly normal, as you don’t want to get caught short without your nicotine fix – especially if you’ve only just quit smoking.
Although we can get an idea, it’s difficult to give you a definite answer to this question as ultimately how long it lasts will depend on a number of factors.
Firstly, if you’re puffing away non-stop then obviously you’ll move through your e-liquid much quicker than someone who’s only using their device every now and then. So how long your Geek Bar lasts will heavily depend on how often it’s being used.
Another thing that can affect the longevity of your device is how strong your draw is. If you take regular puffs then you should receive close to the estimated puff count (more on that later). On the other hand, if you’re someone who likes to take big, long draws then you might find your disposable devices are running out faster than it would for the average vaper.
So, how long do Geek Bars last? Well as we can see, this isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer. Nevertheless, assuming you’re not puffing away relentlessly, your Geek Bar should last you 1-2 days max.
How many puffs in a Geek Bar?
The answer to the question of how many puffs in a Geek Bar is slightly easier to find. That’s because, as we touched on already, manufacturers of disposables like Geek Vape provide a puff count with their devices. Although this is only an estimate, this can give you an idea of how long your Geek Bar will last.
On the standard Geek Bar, the puff count is 575 (minimum) which means this small device packs a surprising punch for its size. With that said, this puff count was based on lab testing with puffs of 1.5 seconds, so if you choose to take deep, prolonged draws, then naturally you’ll get far fewer puffs.
On the slightly downsized Geek Bar Lite, the puff count is considerably less at 350-400. This is due to the fact both the battery and e-liquid content is reduced, so if you’re looking for longevity then stick with the original Geek Bar as it offers around 50% more puffs than the Lite.
What’s inside a Geek Bar?
The standard Geek Bar comes equipped with a built-in 500ahm battery, which means this little kit is powerful enough not to worry about your vape dying mid-day. The battery delivers a maximum of 9W output and organic heating materials and elements provide excellent flavour until the very last draw.
Additionally, each pod is pre-filled with 2ml of 20mg nic salt e-liquid, so there’s no need to get your hands messy refilling your device, and there’s no fiddly maintenance involved either.
How to recharge a Geek Bar
If you’re wondering how to recharge a Geek Bar, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but sadly these devices can’t be recharged – once the battery dies, so does your device.
We’re sure most of you know this already, but it’s a question we get asked from time to time so we thought we’d clear this one up for anyone who’s unsure.
Hopefully you now have a better understanding of disposables and you’re no longer searching the internet asking ‘how long do Geek Bars last?’. With regular use, these throw-away devices should last you 1-2 days at the very most, and while they might not be the most cost-effective option out there, remember that compared to the price of a packet of cigarettes they still offer great value for money!
