At first glance this might seem like a tedious and completely pointless task, but in the end you will understand. It’s a good habit to get into of removing your atomizer, or vape tank, especially if it was recently filled with e-liquid. This will help prevent any leaks or spills that are known to occur from time to time. If juice makes contact with your button, or into the battery itself, this could result in death of the device.
With the money you recently spent on your vape, it would be a shame to see this happen within the first week of your purchase. So please err on the side of caution and do this small task.
There is actually more to your e-liquids then just buying them and vaping them. Like your mods, vaping tanks, and other atomizers; your juice requires this as well. For one, did you realize that you should shake your e-liquid before each use? This helps make sure that the PG/VG mixture and the nicotine are properly mixed, that way you are always sure to get a quality vape.
You also want to make sure you don’t leave your e-liquids anywhere that they might be hit by direct sunlight. If you’re new to vaping, the nicotine is probably very important to you right now, and sunlight can decrease the intensity of your nicotine, rendering you with a product you did not pay for.
Lastly, you don’t want to leave your bottles of e-liquid open. It’s ok to let your juice breath if it’s too intense, but leaving the bottle open for extended periods of time will sacrifice the flavor of your e-liquid. I wouldn’t leave a bottle open for longer than 30 minutes. I don’t think it’s worth the risk to let it breath any longer than that.
There is an open hole on the mouthpiece of your vape, this hole exposes your atomizer to debris and foreign particles. For example, when you carry your vape in your pocket you risk getting lint inside your vape. This can be very dangerous, the atomizer gets very hot and ignites the lint. You risk inhaling a burning piece of pocket lint into your lungs.
If you are like most people you will carry your vape with you everywhere. Every new place you take your vapes exposes it to more germs and foreign particles, most you will never even see. Then you press it to your lips and breath in all the foreign particles it has accumulated. Keeping your vape clean and covered is extremely important for your health.
The batteries are the single most important piece of the puzzle to vaping. It doesn’t matter if you are using a starter kit pen, or a $200 box mod. But we will start with the starter batteries just for now. All these come with a color code in the button of the battery that gives you an insight into the life of the battery. When you notice that the battery is starting to die, don’t let it reach the point of going dead. Go ahead and connect the charger.
Most of these starters have what is called ego threading, which means the charger screws right onto the battery. You don’t want to over tighten this, as it could damage the charger or battery. When you notice the battery is charged, remove it from the charger. It might seem like a good idea to keep it on until you are ready to use out, but this can affect the life of the battery itself.
Now, if you are using a more advanced mod that uses 18650 or 26650 batteries, there are a whole slew of other concerns you should be aware of. If you are using these, you are more than likely building your own coils, so make sure you are not over tasking the batteries. These are only rated to handle so many amps of current and could have disastrous results. Make sure the battery itself isn’t getting hot. This is a warning that something wrong is happening. Take them out immediately and troubleshoot what the problem might be.
We all have our favorite batteries and will use them to the last drop. If you happen to notice rips in the wrapping, please do not use them. You can take them to a shop and they will rewrap your batteries for usually an inexpensive cost. You also don’t want to use any batteries that are dented or damaged in any other way. Most importantly, do not leave your batteries in your vehicle or in any direct sunlight; this can cause your batteries to start the venting process and could result in your battery exploding. So please be aware of where you are keeping your batteries.
