It’s that time of the year again when the winter blues lift and the sunshine finally bursts forth. You might start to look around your house and think “Hmmm…maybe I should do some spring cleaning.” Yes, those cobwebs and have got to go! And if you’re a vaper, you should also consider giving your electronic cigarette a spring cleaning as well.
Electronic cigarettes aren’t perfect. Sometimes e-liquid gets stuck and gunked up inside the cartridge, the battery can stain the inside of the device, or the mouthpiece can even become blocked. These are just a few things that can slow down your e-cig from performing at its best.
Below are some quick and easy tips for giving your electronic cig a good cleaning.
Cleaning between the battery and cartridge is essential. This is where a lot of dust, debris and gunk can build up. It’s recommended that you do this at least once a week. If you don’t, your spring cleaning may take a little longer than expected!
This is also a very important step because the connection between the battery and cartridge needs to be strong in order for it to work properly.
Some people use a light damp cloth, while others use alcohol on a swab to clean this area. It is advised that you check your manual to see what is appropriate for your particular device.
The Cartridge (Cartomizer)
Most of the new electronic cigarettes combine the cartridge and atomizer, but some of the older ones are separate. If you have an older model, you will need to clean both.
You can try and use a cloth, but sometimes a toothpick is necessary.
At Eversmoke, we sell prefilled flavor cartridges which create a lot less of a mess. We also sell disposable cartridges, so no cleanup necessary!
As long as you give these two main two parts of the electronic cigarette a good spring cleaning and remember to wipe them down on a regular basis, you will ensure that your device lasts longer and performs better.
