Looking After Your E Cigarette To Make Sure It Lasts

Like everything, an electronic cigarette can wear out over time and parts will need to be replaced. Although at Grey Haze we provide very affordable ecig replacement parts, you will still want to make sure that your e cigarette or vaper lasts as long as possible. Making sure that you look after your e cigarette (especially the battery and atomizer) will make sure that these costs are reduced and you make the most out of your vaping experience.


Tips On Making Your ECigs Last Longer


This guide will help you to clean and maintain your e-cigarette atomizers and batteries as well as your new e cig starter kit. This will ensure that you are vaping at peak performance and can also improve the taste and vapour of your e liquid.


Looking after you atomizer on your e cigarette

The atomizer is the heating element that vaporizes the e liquid as you. The average life expectancy of an atomizer is about 3 months.

When attached the atomizer to your e cigarette you must be careful not to over tighten it. This may cause problems with the contact points and could cause it not to work properly. Tighten the atomizer very gently onto the battery until in makes contact. You will know if it is too loose as you will hear a noise, if this happens turn it another 90 degrees to tighten it properly. 


You can also clean your atomizer

This may not work on all models but you can also soak your atomizer in cola overnight. After this procedure has been fulfilled then you can also steam it with a kettle or proper steam cleaner.

As you may already know, Coke contains a type of acid that breaks down a whole host of nasties. After you have let it soak then it is time for the steaming. Grip the atomisers with tongues or tweezers and place it over a steaming kettle for a few minutes to get rid of any potential residue. 

We also recommend that you clean contact points where your atomizer and battery connect together. You can do this by taking a cotton bud and carefully wipe the point inside the atomizer on the screw side.

After cleaning any part of your vaper or e cigarette it is important to let it fully dry before using it again as this could create a fault or reduce the power of the device. Leave all the parts overnight if possible to make sure there is no moisture around. 


Keeping the Battery Life High On An E Cigarette

The battery in an electronic cigarette is an integral part of vaping and a bad battery life could really impact on your day to day use of your vaper. Most batteries for electronic cigarette products last around 200-300 charges but this can be much less with improper care so it is important to find out how to care for your battery properly. 

The batteries for vapers all come with a safety cutoff  (as standard)  to prevent the battery and atomizer from burning up.  If you have an automatic battery model of vaper then the best practice is to loosen the battery from the device after use. This will make sure that no power is being lost when you are not using the unit. Automatic batteries are very sensitive, so you will be saving your battery life by ensuring the two units do not make contact, draw power and heat up.

It is also important to be careful when filling your cartridge with e liquid. If you ever overfill the cartridge then this could cause the atomizer to leak into the battery. You can tell when it has been overfilled because there will be a hissing noise when you draw on the vaper. You can  get rid of excess e-liquid in your system by cleaning the atomizer thoroughly.
