Keeping up with vape device maintenance is a surefire way to extend its life and give you more enjoyment over time. After all, who likes investing in a top-notch vape kit only for it to die on you in a year? Maintenance might seem like a hassle, but it truly does make a huge difference in the performance and longevity of your vape gear, and it will be worth it. Check out these tips for maintaining your vape to keep it running smoothly and keep you vaping happily and safely!
Coil and Tank
Check your tank or pod for cracks or leaks, especially if it has been dropped. Leaky e-Liquid is never fun, and it can result in a sticky mess and hands covered in vape juice. Nicotine can be absorbed through the skin, so be sure to keep your hands free of e-juice by handling leaks as soon as you notice them.
Replace your tank if it is broken or cracked, or after a year or so. Plastic tanks age more quickly than glass, as plastic can absorb flavors and make your e-juice taste muddied.
Be sure to replace your coil as soon as it provides a burnt taste or looks dark brown or black. This will ensure a clean puff of flavor and prevent your vape kit from overpowering and burning the cotton.
Batteries and Charging Port
Avoid leaving your vape device or batteriescharging for longer than they need to, as over-charging can wear out the internal mechanisms and the battery will not hold a charge as long over time, just like with a smartphone.
Replace your batteries every year or so, or as soon as they begin to not hold a charge. Using a new wall charger can also help you keep your device charged or bring extra batteries with you on the go!
Always keep your charging port clean and clear of dust or debris; this can cause an inconsistent charging connection, and your device will not charge as quickly or efficiently as it can.
The Device Itself
Just like with any expensive piece of technology, try to avoid dropping or hitting your vape. Internal parts can be damaged or broken, leading to a malfunctioning device.
Keeping your device clean will help it perform better, so always make sure to clean it thoroughly whenever you disassemble it to replace a coil or tank. For more information on how to clean a tank, check out our blog, How to Clean a Vape Tank.
