MUST KNOW TIPS ON HOW TO CLEAN A VAPE
MUST KNOW TIPS TO MAINTAIN YOUR DEVICE
Now you’ve found the best pod-mod for you and your favourite flavour, what’s left? Knowing how to properly clean your vape pen device and maintaining your vape battery, of course. We’re going to walk you through our best tips to maintaining your device - from making sure you know how to clean it to understanding how to preserve your vape pen battery, and when and how to use your vape pen charging cable most effectively.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KNOW HOW TO CLEAN A VAPE PEN?
Cleaning and maintaining your vape properly can impact the performance quality and lengthen the life of your device. With frequent use, vape pens can become clogged and filled with debris. Giving your vape device a good clean will keep it working to its full potential and ensure it carries on delivering quality vapour.
HOW TO CLEAN A VAPE DEVICE
All of Vuse’s devices are designed to be user friendly, and there’s not a great deal you need to do to keep them in tip-top condition. How often you clean your vape should depend on how often you vape. For more frequent vapers, we suggest cleaning your device around once a week. Once you start it will soon become easier and a part of your routine.
There are two types of vaping devices: closed-system devices and open-system devices. Closed-system devices are so-called because they operate with closed, pre-filled, plug-and-play cartridges or pods, so users don’t have to worry about filling anything up themselves like with the Vuse ePen and ePod. In open-systems devices, users fill the clearomisers themselves, and can change parts of the device from time to time.
We wanted to give our users the easiest maintenance solutions which is one of the best features of Vuse closed systems. Other brands with open-system devices require more maintenance so remember these simple steps when caring for your open-system device.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR VAPE MOUTHPIECE
Whether you’re lounging at home or on the go, there’s an easy way to protect the hygiene and cleanliness of your ePod device. Our reusable pod caps provide a solution to protect your pods from unwanted dust and debris. If not, make sure your pockets or surfaces are nice and clean!
For closed system users, you don’t have to worry too much about cleaning mouthpieces as with every new pod inserted, you essentially get a brand-new mouthpiece. For the open system users out there, the mouthpiece of your device is easy to maintain. All you have to do is clean it every so often to make sure you’re getting the most out of your vaping experience. To do so, first make sure the device is cold. Then remove the tip and blow through it, and give it a brush with a clean cotton bud or cloth.
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR VAPE BATTERY
Dirt can gather on the terminal of the battery unit, preventing it from passing charge to the clearomiser or pod. Giving it a wipe with a dry clean cotton bud or piece of cloth once a month can help prevent this.
The key to maintaining a longer life for your vape pen device is to charge it properly. The best way to charge your vape pen battery is to make sure you do so before the charge completely drains out. One additional tip is to charge your vape battery when its charge is halfway. Read more on how to maintain your vape battery with our guide.
DON’T LEAVE YOUR VAPE JUST ANYWHERE
Store your device at room temperature, as extreme temperatures can cause damage to its more intricate components. Not only will it help your battery, but it’ll also ensure the e-liquid in your pods stays fresh and gives you the satisfaction you’re looking for. As a rule of thumb, store your vape device between 0 – 25°C. And make sure you don’t leave your device in direct sunlight (or in front of direct sources of heat for that matter). This goes for your pods and vape juice bottles as well – left in direct sunlight, they could start to oxidize and lose their flavour.
What about a bit of water? You definitely don’t want to leave it somewhere damp. Electronics and water aren’t the best of friends, so it’s best to avoid leaving your device (or using it) in excessively humid environments.
We hope that you find these tips for maintaining your vape device useful. And if you already have an open-system device but aren’t into all the maintenance, you might want to give one of our Vuse closed-systems a try.
