An empty disposable vape pen is a device used for cannabis oil vaping that does not come pre-filled with any oil. Buyers can fill it with their preferred cannabis oil, such as THC, CBD, Live Resin, Liquid Diamonds, and more.
Currently, Chinese factories produce the majority of empty disposable vape pens and cartridges worldwide. However, there are certain considerations to keep in mind when purchasing these products from China, especially during extended holidays like the Chinese New Year (CNY).
About Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is also known as Spring Festival, or Chun Jie in Chinese pinyin. It is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar.
The Spring Festival has a rich history that dates back to early human beliefs in nature worship. Its evolution from ancient times aimed to pray for good luck at the beginning of the year. It is believed that all things originate from heaven, and humans originate from ancestors. Thus, praying for good luck, offering sacrifices, and respecting heaven and ancestors are considered essential means of repaying the origin and turning back to the beginning. The Spring Festival's origin carries profound cultural connotations and rich historical and cultural heritage in its inheritance and development. Throughout the country, various New Year celebration activities are held during the Spring Festival, with strong local characteristics.
In the early days of determining time and timing, the year was determined based on the changing stars, and "Dou Bing Hui Yin" marked the beginning of the year. The return of spring to the earth during "Dou Bing Hui Yin" signified the end returning to the beginning, everything being renewed, and a new reincarnation beginning. In traditional farming societies, the return of spring to the earth at the beginning of the year held great significance, leading to the derivation of many related customs and practices. Despite differences in calendars used and New Year's Day festival dates throughout historical development, the festival framework and many folk customs have been inherited. Today, the Spring Festival is celebrated on the first day of the first lunar month and typically lasts until at least the fifteenth day of the same month.
The Spring Festival is the most solemn traditional festival of the Chinese nation. Its influence on Chinese culture has led to similar celebrations in other countries and regions globally. The Spring Festival, Qingming Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, and Mid-Autumn Festival are known as the four traditional festivals in China. The State Council of the People's Republic of China approved the Spring Festival's folk customs to be included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage lists. On December 22, 2023, the 78th United Nations General Assembly designated the Spring Festival (Lunar New Year) as a United Nations holiday.
How Long Will the Chinese New Year Holidays Last?
The government has stipulated a 3-day statutory holiday for the Spring Festival (1st / Chu Yi, 2nd / Chu Er, and 3rd / Chu San). for the Chinese New Year. However, many government departments, agencies, state-owned enterprises, and institutions typically observe up to seven days of holidays based on past practices.
In contrast, private companies may have up to 2 to 3 weeks off for the Spring Festival holidays, with some even taking 4 weeks off depending on their industry and business status. For vape product manufacturers, most are private companies located in Guangdong province, with workers from various provinces nationwide. They tend to take 2 to 3 weeks off to spend time with their families during this significant holiday.
At Vappak, we will be closed for the 2024 Chinese New Year (Year of the Dragon) holidays from January 29th (Monday) to February 18th (Sunday), and will resume work on February 29th (Monday). We will not receive custom orders after January 19th (Friday), but we can still process orders for products with material inventories or finished product stock.
We advise our customers to place their orders before January 19th to avoid any unexpected delays. Typically, there are many unforeseen issues and delays around the Chinese New Year period that we hope to minimize for our customers.
Why There Are Likely Unexpected Delay Near the Chinese New Year?
With the involvement of numerous factories and companies in the supply chain, there are multiple factors that can cause delays from material supplies to shipping to buyers. Additionally, during the Chinese New Year, there are extra elements that may contribute to these delays. This can be attributed to several aspects:
Many buyers from Western countries rush to restock after the Christmas holidays, while Chinese empty vape pen suppliers are also encouraging their customers to buy before the Chinese New Year. This surge in demand can cause delays and result in suppliers being unable to fulfill all orders on time.
Unstable Material Supplies:
Some material suppliers may start their holiday earlier if they do not have much business, while others may delay their supply due to a high volume of orders. Many suppliers aim to clear their stock before the new year and may opt not to restock until after the holiday period to withdraw funds for the new year.
Shortage of Manpower:
As previously mentioned, most workers are from other provinces and look forward to spending a long holiday with their families. This causes a shortage of manpower, even when there is an abundant supply of materials for production.
All suppliers and buyers strive to ship out their orders before the holidays, leading to a surge in cargo exports. This can cause shipping rates to increase and lead to delays. Moreover, unexpected problems that halt shipping operations during the holidays may go unresolved until after the holidays are over, causing significant delays.
To ensure a smooth and timely transaction, we strongly recommend that our customers place their orders as early as possible to avoid any unexpected delays. Whether you choose to purchase from Vappak or other suppliers near the Chinese New Year, it is crucial to inquire about stock availability and shipping times before making a payment.
