E-cigarettes are rising in popularity. Smoking an e-cigarette is a more cost-effective way to smoke, legal in more places than cigarettes are, better for your health, better for the environment and also offers many other benefits. Plus, all the available flavors make smoking e-cigarettes in Orlando a fun hobby.
E-cigs don’t come cheap, though. They are investments in technology and can get damaged if they aren’t taken care of. You can’t just smoke an e-cig day in and day out without cleaning it. If you neglect cleaning and maintenance for too long, you’ll likely start noticing you’re having a less than stellar smoking experience. The smell and tastes will be off, and the device may even appear burnt. Additionally, neglecting to maintain your e-cig can cause it to malfunction and reduce its lifespan.
Fortunately, maintaining e-cigarettes is extremely easy and will only take you a few minutes each week to complete. Here are some of the basics of properly caring for an e-cigarette.
Cleaning your e-cig once a week should be a priority for a moderate smoker. If you smoke a lot, clean the equipment every two or three days. To get your e-cig squeaky clean and ready for use, you’ll want to disassemble it as much as possible. Some models won’t come apart as much as others, so refer to the owner’s manual or ask an employee at your local smoke shop for help.
Clean the atomizer and mouthpiece thoroughly, rinsing the mouthpiece with warm water and wiping the atomizer down with a cloth, cotton swabs and water. The main goal is to remove any existing residue and decrease the amount of bacteria on the pieces.
Next, make sure the battery connection area is clear of debris. Use a cotton swab to clean it if there is any residue on the connection port.
Wipe the exterior of your e-cig down using a cotton ball dampened with rubbing alcohol to make sure it’s totally clean. Then, make sure to let all the components of your e-cig dry completely before reassembling them. It’s really that easy!
In addition to cleaning your e-cig regularly, there are a few maintenance tips you should use to preserve battery life, good e-cig condition and vapor quality:
- Charge responsibly: Keep your e-cig battery charged so it’s ready to use, and have a backup battery on hand. Don’t drain your battery completely, either. Put it on the charger when it starts getting low and take it off as soon as it’s fully charged to make the battery last longer.
- Replace coils monthly: The coils in your e-cig will go bad over time, especially if you use it often. Dirty or old coils will begin tasting burnt. Replace coils every month or so to keep your e-cig well-functioning and tasting great.
- Store it safely: Keep your e-cig safely stored in a protective case, and don’t keep it in places with extreme temperatures. Also avoid leaving it in direct sunlight.
