E-Liquid Evaporation Within the Tank...Is it Possible?

E-Liquid Evaporation Within the Tank...Is it Possible?

 

Let’s say that you recently purchased a new vape tank, placing your old one off to the side.  But that old tank was still half-filled with e-liquid.  So, after several weeks, you decide to put that old tank back on to enjoy that bit of juice that was left.  But, somehow, it looks like most of that liquid has disappeared into thin air.  What exactly happened?

For most seasoned vapers, you’re probably familiar with the concept of oxidization, mostly because it’s associated with steeping, a practice that involves letting e-liquid sit under certain conditions in order to bring out a stronger flavor.  Well, oxidization involves evaporation, which means that your liquid can indeed evaporate if left in a tank for a while. 

Now, let’s explain why this happens and what can make it more likely to occur.

Oxidization: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Oxidization refers to the introduction of oxygen into the molecules that make up your vape juice.  When done under the right circumstances, such as certain steeping practices, oxidization is a good thing.  It allows very specific molecules to evaporate so that you’re left with a more concentrated juice that’s fuller in flavor and stronger in terms of its nicotine potency.

But, if your vape juice isn’t oxidized properly, it can simply evaporate, leaving you with less liquid that’s not nearly as flavorful or strong as it was when you first purchased it. 

Also, if you leave your e-liquid in a tank for too long, it can most definitely evaporate, leaving you with barely anything left.  Besides, e-liquid that’s been over-oxidized will have a flat flavor and barely any nicotine hit, making it hardly worth vaping.

How Frequently You Vape Makes a Difference

If you tend to go days in between your vape sessions, your e-liquid is more likely to evaporate in your tank.  The tank itself wasn’t designed to properly contain vape juice and protect it from certain environmental factors that speed up the oxidization process.  So, if you’re not vaping it anytime soon, put that e-liquid back into its bottle and close the cap tightly.

Your Environment Makes a Difference

There are two things that can speed up the evaporation process of your e-liquid, and they are light and heat.  If you’re leaving your full tank in a hot car on a sunny day, for instance, expect that liquid to evaporate fairly quickly.  Even if you just leave your tank by a sunny window, it’ll be more likely to evaporate.  Hence, why you should always store e-liquid you’re not currently vaping in a dark, cool place such as a cabinet, closet or drawer.  This way, it will last longer, plus its flavor and nicotine hit will remain strong and satisfying.

Evaporation as You Can See is Possible

Yes, e-liquid can definitely evaporate while it’s sitting in your tank.  In order to prevent this from happening, don’t let your juice sit in that tank for too long, and always store your tank in an environment that is not too bright or too hot.
