Vaping is becoming increasingly popular. According to the research study conducted by Facts and Factors, the global e-cigarette market was worth 14 billion dollars in 2019. This number is most likely even higher today.
If you are one of the millions of people vaping worldwide, you probably know how important it is to keep your vape kit in the best shape possible. Nevertheless, it is much easier said than done. Even with many tips and tricks that you can find online, properly cleaning your vape tank or coils might be challenging.
Whether you are a vaping beginner or someone who wants to learn something more about maintaining your vape kit, you came to the right place. Here, we will inform you what equipment you need to start vaping and how to take the best care of your vaping accessories. Let’s get started.
What You Need in Your Vape Kit
Starter kits from popular brands like blu or SMOK should provide you with everything you need. Here is what they usually have in the box:
- Vape juice,
The first five parts are the essential ones, as you need them to build your vaping device. A compatible charger is there for you to charge the battery once it runs out. And finally, some manufacturers might also provide you with different kinds of e-liquids to try.
How To Clean a Vape Tank
Regularly cleaning your vape tank is the best practice to ensure you can always enjoy your vape. Without it, residue will accumulate, mixing the new flavours with the back-flavour of the last e-liquid you used.
First, detach your tank from the mod and take out the coil. Next, remove any liquid that is left in the tank. Now you should be ready to disassemble the tank and place it in the bowl of water. The water you use should be warm. There is no need to use water with higher temperatures unless you have not cleaned your tank for a more extended period.
Wash the tank in the bowl until it is spotless. If the residue in some parts of the tank is hard to remove, you may place them under running water. Next, all you have to do is dry every component of the tank with a paper towel and let it air dry for about 15 minutes. After this time, you can reassemble your device, fill it up, and go back to vaping.
If the above method has not worked for you, you may use high-proof and non-flavoured vodka. In such a case, dampen a cloth or paper towel with the vodka and scrub with it all the challenging areas until the tank is clean and rinse your tank with warm water afterwards.
How To Clean Vape Coils
The vape coil is the critical part of your device because it is responsible for heating the e-liquid in the tank. Unfortunately, it will sooner or later outlive its usefulness, and you will have to replace it with a new one. There is no way to make your coil live for much longer, even if you know how to clean it. Nonetheless, it does not mean that you should completely forget about it.
If you want to clean your replaceable coil, make sure that alcohol and water will not damage it first. Once you know that a small bath will not kill your coil outright, you can follow the steps we mentioned regarding the vape tank.
On the other hand, if you are using a rebuildable atomiser, you should clean your coils regularly. First, remove the wicks from your coils and dry burn them lightly (a few pushes of the fire button should do the trick). Next, remove the atomiser from the mod and place it under running water. You might use a toothbrush to remove the residue from all the tight spots. After you finish cleaning, end with a final dry burn.
Here are some more tips that can help you maintain your vape kit in the perfect shape:
- If you have a vape pen that is a one-piece design, try using a Q-tip. Just soak it in distilled water and clean the inside of the tank.
- Always maintain the ideal e-liquid level. Try not to overfill the tank, and always make sure that there is enough juice during operation.
- Find a safe place to store your vape kit. It will help you keep it in the best shape possible for many years to come.
The Bottom Line
Now you know how to maintain your vape kit. If you follow the steps we mentioned, all of your vaping experiences will be fantastic.
Keep in mind that a clean vape is the first step to get optimal performance. As such, do your best to clean your vape tank and vape coils regularly. Additionally, try to maintain the ideal vape juice level. Thanks to these methods, you will prevent your vape from tasting burnt.
Take good care of your vaping equipment, and it will serve you longer than you might think. Vape on!
