Vape Pen 101: The Right Way to Clean Your Vape Device to Extend its Life

Today, any high-quality vape kit is an investment. Even if you haven’t made any adjustments to your device, purchasing a top quality vape kit and replacing the coils on a regular basis, as well as using the appropriate vape juice, is critical.

One of the best methods to save money on vaping is to keep your equipment in good working order. Hence, here we have a vape 101 guide to clean your convection vaporizers

Paying for a brand-new vape device and all of the latest accessories could be an expensive purchase. Any vape kit will experience wear and tear, which must be factored in.

Why Do I Need to Clean My Vape Pen?

First and first, let’s address the obvious question: WHY should you bother cleaning your vape pen in the first place? There are three essential reasons why you should consider cleaning your vape pen, and we believe you’ll be amazed at how crucial each one is.

Reason 1

Many vape users may just clean their vape once a month, or they may only clean it once every few days. However, doing so would simply result in the rapid depreciation of your pricey piece of equipment, rendering it worthless and requiring you to spend even more money on a brand new one. So the first and most obvious answer is that having a pool would be a complete waste of your money in the long term.

Reason 2

There are more significant reasons to keep up with the filth and gunk that can quickly accumulate inside a vaping equipment; your health! The truth is that many people believe that using a vaporizer is a healthier option to smoking joints, yet more research is needed before humans can fully comprehend how vaping affects the body. However, marijuana residue — regardless of the form in which it is smoked – accumulates over time.

Reason 3

Finally, there is no reason not to clean your vape pen! This work is not only quick, but also simple, so there are no excuses for falling behind on basic maintenance.

How To Clean Your Device? 

The first step is to remove the coil (we are going to discuss coil cleaning later). While you’re at it, disassemble the rest of the tank. Take careful note of how things fit together and make a mental note of what belongs where. Keep everything orderly and don’t loose anything. You can keep everything in a small bowl while you do this. This will make cleaning much more efficient, as well as familiarizing yourself with the intricacies of your tank. There are numerous methods for cleaning your vape tank, but these are the most effective.

The standard rinse

Warm water works nicely if your tank is somewhat clean. Disassemble the tank by separating the pieces. Place each component under running water and dry with a paper towel. Allow them to air dry until no water or condensation is apparent. If you haven’t cleaned your tank in a while, you may need to take an extra step.

Fill your cup or bowl halfway with water. Put it in the microwave for two minutes. Meanwhile, start the procedure by rinsing parts of your tank under the sink. After that, remove the cup or bowl from the microwave and set the disassembled tank inside.

Allow the water to cool before giving your tank one last rinse under the sink. Dry your tank gently and carefully with a paper towel. Set it aside until it is completely dry. You can also use a blow dryer to speed up the procedure, but be careful not to overheat the O-rings.

The PG rinse

You can immerse your tank with propylene glycol instead of water. Fill a bowl or cup with your PG and leave your disassembled tank for an hour or two. Because VG is a lot thicker liquid, it will make cleaning your tank more harder.

When your tank has finished soaking in PG, place it on a napkin and allow it to drip dry. Because propylene glycol is a good flavour transporter, this approach is ideal for extracting any remaining taste.

The cleaning agent rinse

If you want even greater results, you can use common home items to deep clean your tank. After using them, make sure to completely rinse them and allow your tank to dry.

  • Baking soda is an effective cleaning chemical that can be used to restore the lustre of tanks.
  • Ethanol, often known as grain alcohol, is another highly powerful cleaning agent. Don’t confuse this with isopropyl alcohol, which should never be used on the inside of a tank.
  • Cheap Vodka is not a common household item, but you can probably buy it at the grocery store. It will do the job and will not cost you much money.

The ultrasonic cleaner

You’ll need an ultrasonic cleaner to achieve the most thorough cleaning possible for your vape tanks. Originally meant to clean jewellery and precious metals, this product is now utilised by vapers all over the world to clean their atomizers. While you don’t need a vape-specific ultrasonic cleaning, ones that can operate for 10-minute cycles are great.

Using an ultrasonic cleaner is a simple procedure. Simply fill it with water, place all of your vape tank’s components inside, and run it until everything is clean. You could add a few drops of dishwashing liquid to your ultrasonic cleaner, but this isn’t required. Simply give your tank an extra rinse and let it dry.
