Depending on your spending capacity, a vape pen can be a small or big investment for you. Nonetheless, you know well that it has become one of your life’s essentials. And you would want to make the most of it as much as possible.
If you don’t know how to do that, here’s a simple guide containing seven simple ways to make the most out of your precious vape pen or device.
- Read Its Manual
Unfortunately, many new vape users skip reading the manual of their new kit. While most vape devices are similar, they have subtle nuances regarding their functionalities. For example, with most kits, you need to press the fire button five times in quick succession to lock them; not all have this functionality or follow the same lock procedure.
Another thing that the manual can do for you is to ensure that you buy and use the proper cartridge for your vape pen. Aside from that, you can learn some tips and tricks in the manual to help you use your device efficiently and safely. Also, you can visit your device’s website for further info about your pen.
- Be Wary Of Your Current Altitude
Note that altitude can affect your vaping experience. Say that you’re at a high-altitude location (e.g., a camping spot on a mountain). The air pressure there will be lower than when you’re on sea level or ground. Because of that, your device’s vapor production will be less efficient. You’ll also find drawing in more vapor a bit more challenging, and you may end up straining your devices. Hence, it would be best not to use them or switch to a mod if you’re going to a high-altitude location.
- Constantly Check For Leaks
Even if you have the most expensive and newest vape pen on the market, it can still be susceptible to leaks. Your device or cartridge might leak if you burn through your e-liquid fast or put too much e-liquid. It would be best to fill them up to their recommended level to avoid leaks.
But if your cartridges still leak, you have the right to return them to their manufacturer and ask for replacements; if they don’t, it might be the best time to switch to a different vape company.
- Save Every Drop Of Your E-Liquid
It’s easy to think that your cartridge’s already out of juice. You can always shake your device and let the cartridge residue reach the atomizer. Even if you have a lot of digital coupons at the store to reduce the money you need to buy new cartridges, it’s much wiser to make sure you’re not wasting anything in the first place.
In some cases, vapers would even pry open their supposedly empty cartridges to extract the last few drops of e-liquid they have. To do that, all you need is to detach the cartridge and place them on a shot glass upside down. You can collect a few hours’ worth of vaping from the cartridge in a few minutes.
- Always Clean Your Vape Tank Or Atomizer
A dirty vape tank and atomizer can be a pain to use—not to mention that they can result in foul-smelling vapors sometimes. To counter that, you need to clean your tank and atomizer.
Leaving your tank and atomizer dirty can allow gunk and old juice to accumulate in the inner walls of your device. And this accumulation can make it difficult for you to disassemble your device once you need to replace something, troubleshoot, or clean it. It can easily shorten your device’s lifespan, disallowing you to make the most out of your vape kit.
So it’s best to clean them once a week by disassembling the pen and washing the components with water and soap until clean.
- Rebuild Your Coil Regularly
If your unit has a rebuildable coil, be sure to rebuild it regularly and properly. Here are the steps on how you can do that:
- Remove the old cotton or wicking material.
- Dry burn the coil. Just let it get hot to the point that the old wicking material will ignite. Don’t let it glow too hot or for too long.
- Detach the atomizer unit from the mod or pen.
- Let the water run on the coil/
- Brush the coil using an old toothbrush or a brush tool to remove loose burnt debris.
- Rinse the coil with water again.
- Dry burn the coil.
You may do this every 1 to 2 weeks to guarantee that your vape will always be clean and efficient.
- Put Protective Accessories On Your Vape Pen
Dropping your pen or vape device is the last thing you want to happen. You know very well that it only takes a couple of feet to guarantee that your pen will shatter into pieces when it hits the ground. Thankfully, there are protective accessories you can use to prevent your pen from getting destroyed when it falls out of your pocket or table.
Many silicon cases are now available on the market. They can easily slip into vape devices and pens. Aside from protecting it from fall damage, the silicone cover can also provide a better grip for you when you use it.
You may need to do these things to make the most out of your vape pen. As you can see, they’re not remotely hard to do. However, they’re easy to forget, too. So, to avoid forgetting them, you can either bookmark this page or print it out. Good luck!
