How Long Will My ePen Battery Last?

How long your pen lasts depends on a number of factors, like age of device and whether or not you place the device in standby mode when not in use. A fully charged battery should give you around 200 puffs, which is a figure based on laboratory testing.

Will Long Will My Pen Device Last?

If you maintain your device correctly and do not cause damage to any of the internal mechanisms or parts, your Vuse ePen should last around 12 months. Your pen should continue to work after this period, however due to the deterioration of the lithium inside your battery, charging strength may begin to show signs of diminishing. 

What Do the Lights On My ePen Mean?

Once fully charged, the LED lights on your ePen will then let you know how much charge the battery is currently holding. If your ePen holds between 30% and 100% battery, this light will appear green. If your ePen battery is running very low on power, the LED will appear red.

Once your refill cartridge is empty, your ePen will seamlessly alert you by flashing a white LED light three times. This instructs you to remove and replace the cartridge that is currently in use as your flavour will diminish rapidly if you do not.

How Do I Charge My ePen?

To charge your ePen, simply connect your micro USB to your device and plug it in to a mains powered wall socket. Once your device is connected, you will be alerted to the current level of charge by one of three different coloured lights on the front of your device.
