Care and Feeding Your E-Cigarette

Care and Feeding of Your Vaping Device

 

It’s an inescapable fact of life: if you’re going to use an e-cigarette, it’s going to need maintenance. Pre-filled, disposable e-cigs may be maintenance-free, but you’ll suffer when it comes to size of vapor hits, flavor, and variety of e-juice. Vaping with a high-quality device allows you to choose from a wide variety of e-juice flavors, nicotine levels, and juice quality.

If you’re serious about vaping, suck it up (no pun intended) and prepare to learn how to properly take care of your vaping device.


Changing Your Atomizer

 

The atomizer, also known as the coil, is what makes your vaping device do what it does so well. The coil sits in contact with a material that wicks up your e-liquid. When the coil heats up, it heats up the liquid, turning it into vapor.

There are two reasons you need to change your atomizer. The first is when you switch e-juice flavors (for instance, if you’re trying out an awesome Dollar E-Juice Club Sample Pack). There’s nothing worse than puffing on what you expect to be a nice tank of Milk and Cereal, only to have it mixed with leftover Strawberry Lemonade from the day before. Ew.

The next is when you start to reach the end of your atomizer’s life. A coil will typically last for a week or so if you’re a heavy vaper. For lighter users, they can last as long as a month. Remember to prime your new atomizer head with e-juice to keep it from dry burning.


Cleaning Your Tank

 

There are also two times to clean your device’s tank. The first is whenever you switch flavors (for the same reason mentioned above). The second is whenever you change your atomizer. Even if you’ve found a flavor that you’re in love with and you’ve been vaping it exclusively for the past few weeks, give your tank a nice scrub-a-dub when you switch to a new coil. It’ll keep everything clean and working great.

To clean your tank, simply use a mild detergent. Rinse it out thoroughly and let it air dry. See? That wasn’t so hard. As you clean your tank, check it for any cracks or missing/damaged seals.

 

Taking Care of Your Battery

 

Sometimes, e-juice gets everywhere – including all over the battery of your vaping device. This can cause a buildup that can affect the contacts over time. Never get your battery wet or immerse it in water to clean it. If it’s lightly soiled, simply wiping it with a clean, dry cloth will do. If your contacts have gotten gummed up, you can clean them with a pencil eraser or a Q-tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. If need be, you can scrub contact threads with an unused, dry toothbrush.

 

Oh – and do make sure your battery is turned off before you clean it. This is also a great time to inspect your battery for any damage to the wrapping or the battery itself.


What Will You Vape Next?


Once you’re all cleaned up and ready to go, the sky’s the limit. We suggest building a sample pack or buying full-sized bottles of your favorite e-juice from The Dollar E-Juice Club's huge collection.
