If you want to ensure the longevity of your vape device, it’s essential to keep ticking a few simple maintenance boxes as you go, as well as making sure you are charging your device correctly.
Here’s what we recommend for a hassle-free vaping experience:
Keep your vape device charger clean:
Before cleaning, disconnect the charger from your computer or any power source. Cleaning may involve liquids, and it’s crucial to avoid electrical connections during the process. Use a toothpick to gently scrape away dust, pocket lint, and other debris from the device’s USB socket and spring-loaded pins. If you see any e-liquid or sticky residue, use a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol, and rub this over the residue until the charge port is clean. Allow the device to dry completely before using it again.
Keep the charging plates on your vape device clean:
If your vape device uses a USB dock it is essential to maintain a good electrical connection between your charge dock and device. Ensure that the charging plates on the device’s bottom and the USB dock’s connector pins are regularly cleaned. Again you can use a toothpick to gently remove dust, pocket lint, and contaminants from the charging connectors.
Ensure you’re charging your vape device correctly:
Ensure that your charger is connected to a computer, not a wall charger designed for mobile phones or tablets. Using a quick-charge current may lead to overheating, ineffective charging or even damage to the battery. While the charge circuit in the device has current-limiting features, charging via a computer is considered best practice to prolong the device’s lifespan.
If any vape juice has leaked into your device, act swiftly to prevent damage. Remove the pod and clean the pod compartment with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. It’s a good idea to periodically check for e-liquid buildup under the pods and clean as needed to prevent damage.
If it’s possible, keep a backup vape device and charger on hand. This helps identify whether the issue lies with the device or charger if you’re having problems, and also means you can continue vaping whilst you locate the problem.
Remember that following these simple maintenance steps to care for your vape device and charger can significantly extend the life of both. It’s well worth taking this little bit of extra time to ensure a satisfying vaping experience!
