Maintaining your setup is extremely important as it dictates how enjoyable your vaping experience will be. If you want to maximize flavor production, clouds and the life of your product, it’s important to know how to properly sanitize and maintain your vape hardware. Other than having a better experience, the money that will be saved by fine-tuning what you already have vs. purchasing new gear will be worth it.
It’s important to clean your atomizer, specifically, as it’s responsible for heating the liquid (as well as the coils inside). Without the atomizer, the eJuice wouldn’t be able to vaporize, making the entire experience pointless. Aside from extending the life of your flavor and chamber, the airflow of your device will determine how enjoyable your experience is. Not to mention any build up of gunk can result in safety hazards. Thankfully, this process is relatively uncomplicated, but does require a small amount of effort and knowledge.
You should maintain a consistent cleaning schedule, and try to make the span between cleaning only last a few weeks vs. a few months. If you’re a frequent vapor, you should seriously consider making this a weekly task. If you see more or less gunk building up over the course of a week, this means you either vape more or less frequently ,so you can adjust your cleaning schedule accordingly.
For the dainty coils, use a q-tip to get to the hard-to-reach areas and to avoid damaging the coils, in general. This is best for regular maintenance. If there’s a lot of build up to clean, you may want to use something as bit more heavy duty.
If there's more gunk than you’re prepared to handle, or if it’s hardened, give it a good soak. The average is about 30 minutes in isopropyl alcohol, and you’ll be good to go. This is better for tanks with removable coils. If you soak your atomizer, give it time to dry.
At the very least, it’s a good idea to clean it one last time before you buy a new product, just to see if it’s a maintenance issue vs. a product issue. However, if you see crystallized wax in between the coils of the heating rod, it’s time to let go and buy another atomizer. Luckily, we sell plenty.
