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!

Boosting Your E-Cig Battery Life

250-250-eversmoke-battery-ecig-batteriesWhen it comes to electronic cigarette batteries, you may be wondering what you can do to keep yours running as powerfully as possible, for as long as possible. Here are some ways to improve your e-cig batteries’ performance and life so that you can get the most out of them. While many people complain about e-cigarette batteries not lasting very long, we encourage you to take some action to keep things running smoothly!

-Clean the Battery. E-cigarette batteries get subjected to dirt and foreign debris because they are handled with the hands, and when anything is used regularly, it gets exposed. Small liquid leaks, storing the battery in your pocket upside down, and normal, everyday dirt can get in and slowly diminish performance. What you can do is tidy things up a bit. Cleaning your electronic cigarette doesn’t have to be difficult, however, you should know the basics: Once a week or so, take your e-cigarette apart, and wipe down all parts with a damp cloth. If you feel inspired, or if there is a significant amount of visible filth, use an old toothbrush to really scrub the junk out. This allows the parts to connect more consistently, and ensures dirt will not be getting in the way of your enjoyment.

-Use the Battery. It was designed for use, so use it! Some people want to preserve their batteries, and attempt to use them as infrequently as possible, but that’s not what they were designed for. Using them enables them to actually work, and they need that constant running to maintain good performance.

-Charge E-Cig Batteries Properly. Yes there are actually wrong ways to charge your batteries! You don’t want to wait till you’re down to the 0 level. The ideal time to charge a battery is when it is at 50% or higher because this creates less stress on the battery to power it back up to full capacity. When drained to nearly no power, it takes more effort and energy out of the battery to recover, and this overtime, contributes to a loss of performance.

-Store Your Batteries Right. Our storage cases were designed with the intent of storing your EverSmoke e-cigarette batteries, so we suggest using them. A case is the ideal place to hold your batteries because they were made to protect, and to keep your batteries safe. Just stashing a battery in your pocket is one of the worst things you can do, so keep it safe in a case, as well as in a cool, dry place.

So that sums it up! Taking care of your electronic cigarette batteries doesn’t have to take an exaggerated amount of time, nor does it have to be complicated. Following these simple steps can allow you to use your battery for a very long time, without losing any of the power and performance you want. E-cigarettes are an investment; protect them!
