Cleaning Your Atomizers

Atomizers are becoming increasingly popular among electronic cigarette enthusiasts as an alternative to disposable cartomizers. However, many people are unsure as to how to properly clean their atomizers. While often overlooked, a properly cleaned atomizer can have a huge impact on your vaping experience, because left over fluid inside your atomizer can cause stale tasting vapor as well as clog up your e cigarette components. It’s also important to note that keeping the adapter area between your e cigarette battery and atomizer clean and free of liquid or build up is essential to the function of your electronic cigarette.

When cleaning the adaptor area, take a paper towel or an e liquid cleaning cloth and gently wipe the threads that connect your battery and atomizer. Ensure that the cloth or paper towel you’re using does not tear, because you want to prevent any particles from entering the heating coil housing. After cleaning the adaptor area, carefully wipe the area around the atomizer’s vent hole as well.

Another often overlooked method for keeping your atomizers clean and functioning properly is to occasionally drain the left over e liquid inside of the atomizer. One method for doing this is to simply disassemble your electronic cigarette and place the atomizer (battery connection side up) onto a paper towel or piece of tissue paper allowing the left over e liquid to drain out. However, this method typically takes a while, but you can also gently blow into the hole where the battery and atomizer connect to speed up this process. As you blow into the hole, you may hear a gurgling sound as the additional e liquid is being cleared from the heating coil. Repeat this process until you no longer hear a gurgling sound, being careful not to inadvertently blow saliva into the atomizer.

Another method of cleaning your atomizer is to soak it in pure alcohol. In order to perform this method, simply disassemble your electronic cigarette and submerge your atomizer for 5 to 10 minutes in a bowl or pot. It’s also helpful to occasionally agitate the atomizer by gently shaking the container. Once your atomizer has been thoroughly soaked, rinse it off with hot water and then allow it to dry for at least 8 hours with the battery contact facing up.

While there are numerous other ways to go about cleaning your atomizers, the methods outlined above will allow you to effectively clean your atomizers with minimal effort. However, always be cautious while cleaning your electronic cigarettes, because these are electrical devices and can be hazardous when not properly maintained or handled.
