One of the many good things about having an e-cigarette is that it is almost maintenance free. Basically, all you have to do to organize the device for the day for a use and a new pre-filled cartridge and seldom recharge your battery. It’s actually just that simple!
Nevertheless, just like any other piece of equipment, every now and then an e-cigarette requires a little extra care to operate at its complete potential for longer period of time. For example, if you begin to notice that the vapour is neither as thick as before nor as strong, understand that it is time your electronic cigarette needs servicing.
Luckily, getting your e-cigarette back to its best performance is as simple as cleaning any device.
All the cartridges that are of the category, ‘pre-filled’, have to be disposed off after their use, hence there is not a maintenance issue with them. On the other hand, the batteries are supposed to be reused; therefore you need to take care of them so that your e cigarettes last longer.
Dirt and other unwanted residues get accumulated at the place where the battery meets the cartridge. It is hence recommended that you clean it daily with a damp cotton swab weekly such that dirt doesn’t get accumulated to your cartridge. If you are performing this activity for the first time or after much longer time, you might want to take help of something sharper and pointed like the toothpick to remove the hardened grime and dirt.
Some experienced smokers also suggest soaking the cotton in alcohol and then wiping it off. This will improve the connection between the two main parts of the e cig, thereby increasing the performance of the device. Make sure that the battery is totally dry while you are wiping it clean.
Cleaning is indeed a great way to remove all the dirt and grime that has been accumulated in the electronic cigarette. But, you can prevent it all if you do not let it get dirty in the first place.
There is an exciting and in interesting list of different types of accessories that prevent your electronic cigarette from unnecessary wear and tear.
You must carry a portable charging case with you, every time you go out with your e cigarette. This way, you can be sure that they are placed safely into your purse. Hence, there will not be any question or worry of getting crushed, picking up the dirt, etc.
Buy a universal carrying case to protect your e cigarettes and all other supplies by putting all of them together in sleek pocket sized metal cases. They normally have the capacity to hold up to 2 refill cartridges, USB charger and your e-cigarette.
If you are one of those people who want their e cigarette close to you but not stuck to your pocket, you can try using a lanyard. It is quite secure and easily hangs around your neck for easy vaping.
Although these are the basic requirements that should be taken to increase the life span of your e cigarette and make sure that they last a longer time, they are not the ultimate solution. It also depends on what the manufacturer of your e cigarette says. There are some dos and don’ts for every e cigarette; always comply the manufacturer’s instructions first.
