When it comes to electronic cigarettes, there are some things that are obvious, and others that are definite don’ts. Here are some of the different do’s and don’ts of vaping, just so you know what you’re doing, what to do, and what not to do!

E-Cigarette Do's:

  • Do let you battery die on you sometimes.  If you do not, your battery will never fully charge due to battery memory. A short lived battery is a frustrating battery! Same goes with recharging it - let it charge completely!
  • Clean you e-cig regularly. The battery should be cleaned before it is charged. It is a cardinal rule of batteries that they should never be charged while having any liquids on them. Liquids often spill on the terminals of the battery and if you proceed to charge it, you may damage the battery. Alcohol / Vodka and warm water are the recommended fluids for cleaning e-cigs. These gadgets have parts that can rust or get corroded. When this happens you are likely to experience instances of gurgling with the possibility of the liquid getting into your mouth, and eventually not offering you the vapor you have been yearning for.
  • Do let your clearomizer sit for 3-5 minutes after you fill it the first time to give the wicks a chance to fully saturate and prime your atomizer. This will extend the life of your atomizer and help prevent a burnt taste while vaping. Also, have an extra atomizer head next to you at all times. This is because most of them will only last you for about three weeks. When the atomizer is no longer working, you may experience leakages of the e-liquid.
  • Do allow your atomizer to cool down if you’ve been vaping for a while and it becomes hot to the touch. Unlike cigarettes, atomizers don’t function well when smoking hot and can burn and release acrolein, which is a byproduct of combustion. When your vape gets hot, let it sit for a few minutes before vaping again. This will extend the life of your atomizer as well as keep you from inhaling anything toxic, which is one of the reasons we all quit smoking in the first place.
  • As soon as you purchase e-cigs, you must read the instructions within the starter kit, they notify you of some tips to maintain and produce the best vapor from the product. They also list a number of troubleshooting techniques to follow if you are experiencing problems with the device, it’s a good idea to become familiar with these in case the device fails when you are out!
E-Cigarette Don'ts:

  • Don’t ever, ever, ever, ever, ever charge your battery in a computer USB port. Ever. These are not voltage regulated and can blow up your battery. The reports of exploding batteries you hear about in the news are more often than not from people who did this. They can also cause your computer’s USB port to become non-functional. Always use the AC wall adaptor made specifically for your USB charger or use an appropriately regulated USB car charger.
  • Don’t leave your e-liquid, device or batteries in a hot car or direct sunlight. Heat and light will cause chemical reactions in your e-liquid, including leaving you with juice you can’t use. Heat and sun can melt the adhesive that keeps your plastic clearomizer tank attached to its base, causing your clearo to leak e-liquid everywhere, ruining your clearomizer and possibly your battery. As with all electronic devices, extreme temperatures at either end of the spectrum can cause irreparable damage.
  • Don't let your e-cigarette become wet. All electronic cigarettes leak a little e-liquid, and this should not have much of an effect to the battery, however you should avoid water at all costs! Obviously don;t take it into the bath with you and be careful when taking it to the bathroom, leaning over to flush is probably the most common cause of e-cigs falling from pockets and landing right in the pan! If this is to happen, quickly remove the battery from the water and dry as much as possible, remove the battery if possible and dry as many contacts as you can see, use a hairdryer then place the electronic cigarette in a sealed bag of white rice and leave for a minimum of 2 days to absorb all the water.
  • Don’t keep your device in the pocket of your jeans. The movement of your body can damage your tank, your battery, or both. We recommend a lanyard or a pro-clip for keeping your device within hand’s reach and damage free.Do not allow the e-cig tanks to be totally empty. As soon as it is a third full, refill it. A tank that remains empty for a considerably long duration is likely to get damaged and may not give you the kind of experience you crave. Moreover, empty tanks are also known to leak the next time e-liquid is poured into them. If you can, always keep your e-cig tank full.
