More is Not Always Better…

More is Not Always Better…

More is, better right? Not in your vape tank. Like many things, your tank has a fill line, and you need to pay attention to it. You may be thinking that just another little bit and you won't have to go through the hassle of filling your tank again as soon. Right? Wrong.

 

So, you've just filled your tank, put it back together, and you are ready to vape. Mmmm now it is time to fire it up and take a good pull to start the day.... but now you have a mouth full of e-juice. That wasn't what you were after. What happened??? Maybe you overfilled your tank. Let's have a look. Yeah, your mouth piece is full of juice, and the whole thing is a mess. So much for your time saver, but what happened?

First let's have a look at your vape tank and figure out what to do. Most tanks have similar basic construction. A tank is made up of an open space which holds the e-liquid, a center tube for air passage to the wick, and an opening to the coils and wicks. If you look at some of the clear vape tanks, you can see this. The tank will probably be shaped like a cylinder, with an open space surrounding a smaller enclosed cylinder. Think about filling that up with e-liquid. When you overfill, you soak the wick material with more juice than it can hold, and you end up with liquid in the air passage. Is that so bad?

Of course it’s a pain to have to sit down, take your device apart and clean it. But this is just a small part of what problems you can have. Consistently overfilling your tank is more than just a hassle, it can damage it. Liquid is only supposed to be in your tank. Many of the O-rings and gaskets that make up your device aren't supposed to be exposed to liquid. Repeated exposure can cause these parts to wear down much quicker than they normally would. Another concern can be losing some of these small parts while cleaning your device. This can lead to leaking and more damage. 

One obvious sign of overfilling is of course flooding, and for new vapers it may be the sign that you will notice most quickly. Some other signs can be gurgling. Once you get to know your device well enough, you'll notice this one too. Spit-back can also be a sign of overfilling. 

Never fear though, an overfilled tank doesn't automatically mean that you will have to take it all apart. Twist your tank off and blow from the bottom, where it connects to the battery. You may be able to clear it this way, and will be able to hear that it’s clear. You'll want to have a paper towel over the mouth piece so that you don't blow liquid everywhere. After, you can take a twisted piece of paper towel and clear the juice from inside the mouth piece. Overfilling is just one of the issues that can cause you problems, but it is an easily prevented one.
