How Long Do Flum Pebbles Last

The longest-lasting disposable vapes on the market last thousands of puffs before running out of e-liquid. They last so long, in fact, that it’s easy to forget how many puffs you’ve taken from a device like the Flum Pebble. By the time the device runs out of e-liquid, you’ve already been using it for several days. Are you getting as many puffs out of your Flum Pebble as you should be? In this guide, we’ll provide some tips that can help you get your vaping situation back on track.

At, we carry three different disposable vapes by Flum at the time of writing. Those devices are:

  • Flum Pebble: This is the most popular Flum vape and the one on which this article will focus. It contains 14 ml of vape juice and lasts up to 6,000 puffs. If you’re not sure which Flum vape to try, this is the one we recommend buying first.
  • Flum Float: Contains 8 ml of vape juice and lasts up to 3,000 puffs. People love this device’s gently tapered mouthpiece, which helps to create a very satisfying mouth-to-lung hit.
  • Flum Gio: Contains 8 ml of vape juice and lasts up to 3,000 puffs. This device looks and functions similarly to the Flum Float, but it has a slightly different flavor selection.

Although we’re going to concentrate on the Flum Pebble in this guide, much of the information will be useful for troubleshooting any Flum disposable that’s not lasting long or isn’t charging. You might also find it helpful to read our more in-depth guide on fixing a disposable vape that isn’t working.

Let’s start with some basic information to help set your expectations. How long should you expect a Flum Pebble to last?

How Long Does a Flum Pebble Last?

You probably noticed that when we discussed the different Flum disposable vapes above, we used the phrase “up to” when describing how long Flum vapes last. In fact, you’ll see that phrase everywhere on this site when we discuss disposable vapes, and that’s because there’s no way to guarantee how many puffs you’ll get out of a device without some way to limit the length of each puff.

So, how do Flum and other manufacturers of disposable vapes come up with the puff numbers on their products’ packages? The numbers aren’t just random. In fact, manufacturers use machines that puff on the devices automatically, and they record the number of puffs that their devices produce before running out of e-liquid. In this testing protocol, the machine puffs on the device for just one second at a time.

What does this mean for you? It means that you’ll only get 6,000 puffs out of your Flum Pebble if your puffs are just one second long. Most people, though, don’t vape like machines – they take longer or shorter puffs depending on what needs are at that particular moment. If you puff on your Flum Pebble an average of two seconds at a time – which isn’t an unusual puff length by any means – you definitely won’t get 6,000 puffs from your device. In fact, it’ll be more like 3,000 puffs. So, you can clearly see that there’s a lot of variability here, and that’s why disposable vapes are always advertised as delivering “up to” a certain number of puffs.

Instead of thinking of how long a Flum Pebble should last in terms of the number of puffs you’ll get out of it, try thinking in terms of how many days the device will last before you need to replace it. The Flum Pebble has 14 ml of e-liquid with a nicotine strength of 50 mg/ml. That’s 700 mg of nicotine in all – the same amount of nicotine as around three packs of cigarettes. Therefore, it’s reasonable to expect that you’ll get at least three days of use out of a Flum Pebble if you’re a pack-a-day smoker. If your devices are running out of e-liquid sooner than that, you might want to consider changing something about the way you vape. Stick around to the end of the article to learn more about that.

Is Your Flum Pebble Blinking? Try Charging It First

If you’re new to the Flum Pebble or to modern disposable vapes in general, one thing you may not know is that many current devices are equipped with rechargeable batteries. Much of the information that you read online about disposable vapes, though, hasn’t been updated for this modern paradigm. If your disposable vape blinks when you puff on it, it’s only time to dispose of the device if it doesn’t have a rechargeable battery – which isn’t the case for any Flum vape sold on this site.

So, is this the first time that your Flum Pebble has started blinking? It doesn’t mean that your device is done – it just means that you need to charge the battery. We’ll discuss that in the next section. Your Flum Pebble isn’t done until it runs out of e-liquid. When that happens, it’ll lose its flavor or taste burnt. At that point, it’s time to replace it.

How Do You Charge a Flum Pebble?

Charging a Flum Pebble is super easy. Just grab a USB-C cable and connect the device to your computer. Watch the device’s light and wait for it to turn off. When the light turns off, your Flum Pebble is done charging.

A Flum Pebble has a 600 mAh battery and should usually take around 30-60 minutes to charge.

What Should You Do if Your Flum Pebble Isn’t Charging?

Let’s suppose that you’ve connected your Flum Pebble to your computer, and the device isn’t lighting up. What does that mean? The first thing that you should do is try using the device. If it works, the battery is probably charged already. If it blinks, the battery is dead – and that means your Flum Pebble isn’t charging. Here’s what you should do.

  • Try a different power source. You’ll generally have the best experience if you charge vaping devices with your computer, but you can also use a wall charger if that’s the only thing available. Make sure that the charger has an output of five volts and no more than one amp. Don’t use the charging brick for a phone, tablet or other “quick charging” device.
  • Try a different USB-C cable. One universal truth in today’s world of battery-powered gadgets is that we’re all hard on our charging cables. If you’re in the habit of removing USB cables by pulling them by the wires instead of the connectors – as we all do from time to time – your charging cables are going to wear out quickly. Since USB cables wear out quickly when they’re used constantly, replacing the cable will usually fix a Flum Pebble that isn’t charging.
  • Clean the charging port. You probably carry your Flum Pebble in your pocket when you aren’t using it, and it’s likely to pick up dust and pocket lint along the way. If your device’s charging port is packed with lint, the battery won’t charge. Use a toothpick to remove any unwanted contaminants from the charging port.

Flum Pebble Not Lasting Long: What Does It Mean?

One thing is certain about the Flum Pebble – when you’re using a device that has 14 ml of high-strength nicotine salt vape juice, you expect it to last a while. It’s not going to provide 6,000 puffs if you’re a very deep inhaler, but it’s definitely reasonable to expect a few days of use considering the amount of nicotine in the device. So, what does it mean if your Flum Pebbles aren’t lasting as long as you expect?

If you’re not getting the life that you expect out of a Flum Pebble, the first thing that you should do is pay closer attention to your vaping habits. Do you puff on your device constantly, all day long? Does it never really leave your side? One of the big benefits of vaping is that it tastes a lot better than smoking – so much better, in fact, that some people have a little trouble putting their devices down. Instead of vaping constantly, try to mimic your old patterns as a smoker – use your Flum Pebble until you feel satisfied, and then put it down for a while. If you limit yourself to around 20 sessions per day – just like a pack-a-day smoker – you can expect plenty of usage form your device.

It's also important to be wary of counterfeits as a Flum Pebble user. Because Flum vapes are so popular, fake versions of these devices do exist. That’s a problem for you as a user because makers of counterfeit vapes are very likely to underfill their devices to save money. So, if you buy a fake Flum Pebble, it probably won’t deliver anywhere near the number of puffs advertised.

When you buy your vapes from, you don’t need to worry about fakes because we source our products only from authorized distributors. Wherever you buy your devices, though, it’s a good idea to use the authentication code on the box to confirm that you have a legitimate Flum Pebble.
