Common Threats To Your E-Cigarette & How To Avoid Them

No matter how much we try to protect our electronic cigarettes, thesedevices are bound to face plenty of hazards in the real world, thanks to their electronic make-up.To help customers prepare their vape gear from unexpected hiccups, we have outlined the most common threats toelectronic cigarettes and provided some helpful tips on how to combat the elements and proactively care for yourfavorite devices.

Potential Dangers To Your E-Cigarette

Moisture

Moisture

Like most electronic devices, moisture often means disaster. In most cases, enough moisture willhave you heading to the store for a replacement.

Any moisture or liquid that makes contact with the circuitry ofyour device and / or batteries willresult in short circuiting (or shorting). This will cause your device to malfunction and may cause yourbatteriesto vent, in some cases.

Heat

Heat

Even though kicking back and puffing on an e-cig is one of the best ways to spend a beautiful summerday outside, extreme heat can do a lot of damage to a MODor PV. Heat can cause your battery to drain faster thannormal, and may cause the deviceto stop working. Heat can damage interior components as well, causing mechanical parts to swell, bulge, melt,andin some cases spark. If you feel your device getting hot to the touch, take a break from vaping for at least 30minutes.
Extreme Cold

Extreme Cold

Hate to break it to you, but your battery isn’t safe in extreme cold either. The extreme coldcan shorten battery life as well. Since electronic cigarettes use lithium-ion batteries, they perform at theirbest (and drain much slower) when kept between14°F and 86°F.

Preventative Tips To Care For Your Vape

Keep your E-Cig in a Temperature-Controlled Environment

Keep your E-Cig in a Temperature-Controlled Environment

This doesn’t mean you need to keep your vapedevice under lock and key, like your dad does for his cigars, but it does mean you should at least bringyoure-cigs inside. Don’t just throw it in your glove box overnight or leave it on your frontseat on a hot summer day. Indoors, steer clear of leaving your devices near windows, in the kitchen and oronthe breezeway.

We recommend storing your e-cig batteries in silicone sleeves or a plastic case. It’s veryimportant users NEVER storebatteries in their pocket, next to or on any metal or conductive materials. Additionally, be sure to storeyourbatteries in a cool, dry area.

Buy Compatible Components

Buy Compatible Components

There’s no need to deprive yourself of the fun associated with buying newparts, but be sure your new components are compatible with your e-cig. For example, it may be tempting to buythe cheaper charger, but incompatible chargers are one of themain causes of electronic cigarette fires. Being aware of this is one of the best ways to prevent damage toyoure-cigs.
Clean Your Device

Clean Your Device

We can’t stress this enough. Cleaning your e-cig can prevent major issues down theroad. Be sure to clean both your tank and device and replace the coils / atomizer heads when needed. Whencleaning the battery contact terminals or the 510 connectionof a mod, you may use isopropyl alcohol. However, it is best to use 99% isopropyl as there is virtually nowatercontent present. Allow the battery contact terminals and the 510 connect to dry before re-installing thebatteryand operating thedevice.
Taking good care of your electronic cigarettes may seem inconvenient at first, but at the end of the day, the extraeffort will save money, keep you safe, and improve the longevity of your favorite devices!
