How to Take Care of Your E-Cig Cartridges

eversmoke-cartridgesE-Cigarette cartridges are an essential component to vaping. They hold the flavored nicotine e-liquid, are built to hold the atomizers, which are necessary for vaporizing the liquid, and they contain the mouthpiece for which the user puffs on. For all that they do, and all that they bring to the table, it’s important to know how to take care of your cartridges. Here are some tips to make sure you treat them right, and ensure that they will be lasting as long as possible, and performing to their fullest ability.

-Learn to use them properly. Obvious, right? Well, it’s really important that you know what you’re doing right off the bat if you want every cartridge to go as far as possible.

-Screw your cartridge onto the battery till it fits perfectly, and do not over tighten. That can cause it to function incorrectly, and not produce an adequate amount of vapor.

-E-cig cartridges do have a freshness lifespan. After opening, use within one week because after that period they begin to lose potency.

-Don’t do odd things like blow or exhale into the cartridge; they were not meant for any type of action other than puffing and inhaling on.

-Cartridges are disposable, unless stated otherwise, so do not attempt to fill them with liquids.

-They are meant to be stored at temperatures ideally below 75F, in dry conditions, so don’t expose them to water.

-If your cartridge gets hot while in use, discontinue using it until it cools off.

-When vaping, you should puff on your cartridge as you would if you were smoking a cigarette. 10 to 15 puffs, with around 5 seconds between each puff is about the equivalent of one traditional tobacco cigarette.

-When vaping, long, slow drags are the ideal way to do it; shorter, quicker puffing equates to less vapor production; no one wants that!

-It’s a smart idea to keep track of your usage, so you can have a better idea of how long your cartridges will last you. Track how many puffs you take during a session, because vaping is so enjoyable it can be easy to forget and get lost in the pleasure.

-Taste something burnt? That means the cartridge has come to an end, and it’s time for a new one.

E-cig cartridge maintenance can seem unnecessary because they are disposable and have a short lifespan, but they are a major part of the experience. Treat them right, and you will get a ton of enjoyment out of them, as well as making them last as long as possible!
