Keeping your electronic cigarette clean is essential, both for the condition of the device and the quality of your vaping experience. If you never clean your e-cig, you may start having problems such as not being able to fully charge the device, tasting previous e-liquid flavours after refilling with a new one and reduced vapour output. Regularly cleaning your e-cigarette is necessary for hygiene as well as function; it is something you put in your mouth and leaving it sitting on desks or in bags can cover it in bacteria.
Electronic cigarettes use an atomiser to vaporise the e-liquids. The atomiser coils and the area in contact with the battery are usually what need to be cleaned most of all. A build up of gunk can stop the battery from charging properly. Cleaning the contact areas is as easy as swabbing them with a cotton bud soaked in alcohol. You could also use plain paper towels to; anything that won’t leave lint or any bits on the e-cig is fine.
When cleaning clearomisers there are a couple of methods you can employ. Some methods include soaking it in Coca-Cola or vodka overnight. We feel this method is simpler. Just run hot water through the clearomiser and then leave it to dry afterwards, this is usually enough to get rid of all the build up inside it. As for coils, you can either just buy replacements or you can run hot water through them and then dry burn all the gunk off by attaching it to the battery and activating it for 3 seconds.
There are many different set-ups when it comes to e-cigarettes and therefore everyone’s cleaning methods will be different too. However, it is a lot easier than it looks and you shouldn’t be daunted by the task.
