Common problems and solutions of vape
The emergence of vape is undoubtedly a great boon for the majority of smokers. Although electronic cigarettes containing nicotine are still harmful to the human body, they are still much smaller than traditional cigarettes. However, the difference between electronic cigarettes and ordinary cigarettes is that because they are electronic products, they are more prone to failure and require regular maintenance. For example, the light of the electronic cigarette is not on, the cigarette holder is hot, and there is a burnt smell. So how should these problems be solved?

We have summarized some common problems and solutions, hoping to help you.

1. Vaping Battery Problems

In an e-cigarette, the button that turns on the battery is equipped with an indicator that, for various reasons, can report error codes by the number of blinks. As a rule, you can decipher most error signals by looking for their descriptions in the manufacturer’s manual for your particular device. Here are some of the most common battery issues:

Vape Is Blinking But Not Working
If your device blinks but does not vape, the first thing that you need to do is to check for connection issues. Most frequently, it means that you should clean the terminal between the battery and the tank. You can do this by removing gunked vape liquid and dust with a cotton bud.

The battery is empty
Please use the matching charger to charge the battery (see the instruction manual for charging method), a charging time is about 3 hours, the battery head light is on when charging, and the light is off when charging is completed, you can remove it for use. The charging time should not exceed 4 hours, otherwise the battery will be easily damaged.

The battery is in the protection state
when the battery is continuously pumped for more than 15 times or used for a long time (more than 5 seconds), the battery will be in the protection state, and it can be used normally in about 20 seconds.

The battery and the atomizer are not tightened
please tighten the battery and the atomizer so that the contact parts are in full contact.

However, if you want to avoid battery problems altogether, you may consider switching to disposable Vape, such as Elf Bar, MOTI, Geek Bar and more. They remove the need for recharging as well as refilling and avoid one of these common vaping problems.

2. Gurgling or Spitting Sounds

Another one of the common vaping problems occurs when you can hear weird sounds coming from the device while using it. The vape hisses, slurps, gurgles, or even spits. Several things can cause strange sounds to appear, including:

Liquid in the Airflow
Disassemble the device and thoroughly blow through the vape and the atomiser to check if there is any remaining e-liquid and remove it. It is worth mentioning that the accumulation of liquid on the walls of the airflow often causes the device to leak out - if the device is lying on a table, for example.

Too Much Liquid in the Vape Tank
To prevent the device from gurgling and spitting, reduce the amount of liquid filled in, and try not to fill the tank to the brim in the future. Also, an overfilled tank can cause the vape to leak out.

Other reasons for weird sounds coming from your vape may include too little cotton in the vape coil, inhaling too hard for your tank to handle, or a cracked cartridge or evaporator. In order to deal with them, you may consider getting a more suitable tank for your vaping style as well as finding a professional service to replace the cotton wick.

3. Vape Gets Very Hot

If you have noticed that your vaping device gets too hot while using it, here are several factors that may cause it:

Improper use. Most likely, you press the power button even when you do not take a puff, which leads to an overheating of the Vape coil.
Making long and intense puffs. This mistake is typical for beginners used to smoking regular cigarettes.

Irregular vape care. Carbon build-up on the coil may make it heat up excessively. You can solve this issue by replacing the coil, cleaning it, or dry burning it.

The wick is not sufficiently moistened. It may be because there is not enough liquid in the vape cartridge, or it is more dense than necessary. You can refill the tank or add a few drops of distilled water to it in case you are using a high-density e-liquid.

4. smoke problem

In the process of smoking, the smoke becomes significantly smaller: when the liquid of the pod is used up, please replace it with a new pod, and it can be used normally after replacing the new pod for seven or eight seconds.

A lot of e-liquid or a new cartridge has been dropped, but the amount of smoke is still very small: there is too much e-liquid, please turn the atomizer upside down and forcefully shake or blow out the excess e-liquid in the atomizer. It can be used normally.

The amount of vaping smoke is still small: the user does not use it properly. When the user sucks very hard, the stamina cannot keep up. In fact, the electronic cigarette only works for a short time, so the amount of smoke is small. The correct way to use it is Only by taking a light and steady breath can you enjoy the pleasure of electronic cigarettes.

Burnt smell during smoking: When the pod is used up, please replace it with a new pod immediately. It can be used normally after seven or eight seconds of replacing the pod.

Still Have Vaping Problems?
As you can see, most of the malfunctions result from improper use or a lack of regular maintenance of your vape. Thus, it is essential to get in the habit of using and cleaning it in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. It will allow you to prevent the battery from losing its capacity too quickly, extending your e-cigarette’s service life.

However, if your electronic cigarette has stopped working correctly, and none of the above options are suitable for your case, make sure to contact a professional vape store. They should be able to help you out in no time.

Maintenance of electronic cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes should be placed in a cool, dry place.
When the electronic cigarette is not in use, please unscrew the atomizer and the battery to prevent misoperation.
When not in use for a long time, the atomizer and the battery should be unscrewed and stored separately, and the excess liquid in the atomizer should be dried.
