3 Tips to Maintain Your Electronic Cigarette For Longer Life

An electronic cigarette can be a valuable commodity for someone that has given up the traditional method of smoking. You can still get quality doses of nicotine without the harsh chemicals in real cigarettes and cigars. It's important to maintain the electronic cigarette so that you always have it to use. Cleaning the device will make it perform better when you are using it. You may also need to utilize proper ecig replacement parts to continue using it. Whatever the case may be, proper maintenance will ensure that it will last as long as possible. Here are some cleaning methods and possible replacement parts that you may need.

electronic cigarette maintenance tips

Drain Cartridge at Night

If your electronic cigarette uses a cartridge to deliver the nicotine, you can drain it at night to keep it clean. All you have to do is take out the cartridge and place it upside down on a towel. The towel will have dirty water on it when you check it in the morning. You can then simply place the cartridge back in the electronic cigarette, and you will notice that the vapor flows more freely for your smoking needs. This is a handy trick that many people don't know.

Rinse and Dry the Atomizer

Once you drain the cartridge, the next step is to clean the actual atomizer. This is a very easy process, but it is also one that you must keep up with in order to maintain the electronic cigarette. You take the cartridge out of the atomizer and then you run the atomizer under hot water. You must then add a small amount of safe detergent. Rinse the atomizer well and then dry it with a hair dryer. You can then leave it to sit overnight so that it dries completely the rest of the way.

Buy Good Replacement Parts

Even if you clean your electronic cigarettes thoroughly on a regular basis, you still may need to replace parts eventually. Extra batteries, atomizers, cartridges, and chargers may be needed to keep your electronic cigarette in a functioning condition. You should consult plenty of different sources when it is time to buy replacement parts. Make sure to buy parts for your specific model as there are plenty of different types of electronic cigarettes. Taking care of your electronic cigarette sometimes isn't enough. You will likely have to replace some parts if you have the same model for years at a time.

Final Word on Maintaining E-Cigarettes

Proper cleaning and using the correct replacement parts are essential to the life of your electronic cigarette. If you take good care of it, it will serve you well for many years. You will never have to return to the regular cigarettes that have nasty chemicals in them.

Try Our Exciting New Clearomizers for Ecigarettes!

Clearomizers take the cartomizer concept a step further. Cartomizers combine cartridge and atomizer for convenience and feature generous sized cartridges for less frequent refilling. The crystal clear construction of clearomizers take the guesswork out of refilling by letting you see exactly how much liquid is in your tank. With clearomizers, you will never overfill or under fill, but will know exactly when you need to refill. Millimeter markings let you measure your liquid precisely, and the amount of liquid most clearomizers can hold is greater than standard cartomizer capacities, so you can vape for hours with consistently strong vapor output. Refilling is easier than ever in the latest clearomizer models, with easy-to-remove caps and filling from the wide bottom of the tank. Replaceable atomizer heads let you keep using your tank after its atomizer wears out, which saves you money. Compatibility with popular batteries and threading, plus options in atomizer resistance let you create your perfect vape.

E-Cig Clearomizers - The Next Big Thing in Electronic Cigarettes

The most convenient type of electronic cigarette is a two-piece with a cartomizer: a cartridge and atomizer combined. A cartomizer can hold enough liquid to last for many hours without needing a refill. Clearomizer is a type of cartomizer that, as the name implies, are made of a completely clear plastic to allow the user to see when the e-liquid is low and when it needs to be refilled. Thus, you can eliminate any guesswork of refilling completely and have your ecig ready to go whenever you want.

As mentioned, clearomizers offer the most convenience in knowing exactly the amount of eliquid in your cartridge. With it, there is no guessing that you might need a refill, and no worries about filling an cartomizer with liquid, only to have it die completely while still partially full. They are designed a bit differently than cartomizers and should not be filled in exactly the same way. It takes a bit of getting used to, due to their design but once you use them, you will love them.

To fill a clearomizer, remove the mouthpiece and fill it with liquid, being careful not to fill the center hole as it is one of the most common beginner mistakes. To avoid is accidentally getting liquid into the center hole of the clearomizer, use an eliquid syringe to fill with precision. Some brands have markings in milliliters to help in filling.

Clearomizers are available for a variety of electronic cigarettes that can use cartomizers. Most can hold approximately 1 ml of liquid, resulting in all-day vaping for an average e-cigarette user. Tank clearomizers are also available which has a larger tank capacity. Some of the popular brands available are Vision Clearomizer, Vision Vivi Nova tanks, Kanger Tech Clearomizers, and Vape only clearomizer tanks.

Before you try a clearomizer, there are a few other things to keep in mind:

  1. They are obviously not for someone who wants their e-cigarette to look like a real cigarette. They are among the least attractive e-cigarette options, but this is a trade-off for the convenience and performance they provide.
  2. They are known for superior vapor production. If you’ve used cartomizers, you know that in addition to their convenience, they perform extremely well.  They use the same technology as cartomizers, with a combined atomizer and cartridge.
  3. When purchasing a clearomizer, ensure that it is compatible with your e-cigarette. Always read product description details before purchasing.
  4. Because they are made of plastic, clearomizers are more susceptible to cracking than regular cartomizers or cartridges. You should handle them gently.

With proper handling and refilling practices, clearomizers provide tremendous amounts of vapor with less hassle than regular cartomizers or cartridges. While they may not be pretty, experienced e-cigarette users who value performance and hassle-free vaping will find clearomizers to be the superior choice for their electronic cigarettes.

Pros & Cons of Disposable E-Cigs

The electronic cigarette has become extremely popular in recent years. For nicotine users who want to be able to enjoy their nicotine both indoors and outdoors without disturbing others, the e-cigarette has become a practical and affordable solution. As this advanced electronic cigarette continues to gain popularity, more and more versions with different designs, flavors, and strengths are being developed as well.

One of the bestselling models, regardless of the brand, are the disposable e-cigarettes. These models include a battery, an atomizer, and liquid nicotine inside of the unit. While they can easily be recharged, they are designed to be disposed of once the pre-filled cartridges run out. If you are debating whether to buy a full kit or a disposable e-cigarette, read on to learn the pros and the cons of these models so that you can make an informed investment of your hard-earned money.

Pros of Disposable E-Cig Models  
Here are some points favoring the disposable electronic cigarettes.

Perfect for First-time Users
If you are new to the idea of vaporizing, you might want to consider purchasing a disposable e-cigarette before you make a large investment into a kit. These models are perfect for the first-time e-cigarette user because the user can judge the difference between vaping and conventional smoking without making a large investment. Disposable e-cigarettes are the most affordable models on the market and are designed to be used just like a conventional cigarette without the flame. Once you are done puffing, you simply power the vaporizer off and put it away for your next nicotine fix.

Traveling and Easy Disposal
Disposable vaporizers are also perfect for travelers who do not want to go for long car rides or plane rides without their nicotine. Traveling can be a stressful time and having a portable vaporizer filled with liquid nicotine can make all the difference. Simply charge the unit before you leave for your vacation and bring your USB charger along with you if the vaporizer needs a charge before the cartridge runs out. Because the vaporizer is so affordable, you can dispose of it when it is empty without feeling guilty.

No Re-filling
Some kits come with everything you need to refill cartridges with liquid nicotine. When you buy a disposable e-cigarette, you never have to worry about handling liquid nicotine, which can be a messy substance if stored or handled improperly. All of the cartridges are filled and can be thrown away once they are empty.

Cons of Disposable e-Cigarettes
As with anything meant for temporary use, the disposable model of an e-cigarette may not work as well as higher quality refillable models. After all, disposable models are designed to be recharged up to 3 times and then thrown away. While they can be recharged more, quality may decrease with each charge. Some users also believe that disposable models do not work as well as the vaporizers that come in a full kit. When the models do not work as well, you will find yourself puffing more than you would like and running out of cartridges faster.

It is very easy to get your hands on a disposable e-cigarette at LiteCig USA, especially with our low shipping rates and free shipping options! Make sure that you take your time to research the brand you are buying so that you choose the best model for the money. If you are looking for easy portability, convenience, and even affordability, a disposable vaporizer might be the answer. Consider these pros and cons and make your ultimate decision based on the facts.

How to Refill Your E-Cigarettes with E-Liquid

E-cigarettes are becoming an increasing popular way to get a nicotine buzz without smoking. These convenient devices contain a special e-liquid that produces a smokeless vapor when inhaled. You can choose between electronic cigarettes that come with pre-filled e-liquid cartridges or a reusable e-cig where you can refill the e-liquid. Refilling your own e-cigarette can be tricky to a novice, but it helps save money and allows you to experiment with different flavors. Here is an easy how-to guide to refilling electronic cigarettes with e-liquid from the convenience of your home.

There are two popular methods to refill e-cigarettes with e-liquids
  • Drip Method
  • Injection Method

Drip Method for Refilling E-Liquids

The items needed for this method are e-liquid and a dripper. This method is a bit more difficult as it requires patience and a good amount of time.
  1. Open the cartridge and remove the polyester filling.
  2. Using the dripper, extract the e-liquid from its bottle and add a few drop of it into the cartridge.
  3. Gently place the filling back in to the cartridge and wait for it to soak the e-liquid.
  4. Repeat the above 3 steps until the filling is completely soaked.
  5. Close the cartridge.
  6. The cartridge is ready for use.

Injection Method for Refilling E-Liquids

The items needed are e-liquid and e-liquid syringe. This method is easier as the needle gives a bit more precision which can help avoid spills and makes extracting the e-liquid easier.
  1. Using a tweezer, remove the white rubber cap of the cartridge.
  2. Use the syringe without the needle to extract the e-liquid  from the bottle.
  3. Replace the needle back on to the syringe.
  4. Insert the syringe into the middle of cartridge till it touch the bottom of the cartridge.
  5. Dispense the e-liquid with the syringe while making sure the e-liquid doesn’t overflow.
  6. Replace the rubber cap on to the cartridge.
  7. The cartridge is ready for use.

Tips for Refilling Your E-liquid

  • The amount of e-cigarette liquid needed to fill a cartridge is completely up to your discretion; you will need to experiment to find the amount that gives you the most satisfying taste.
  • Mixing different liquids can be a great way to customize the flavor of the liquid; in addition, different liquids contain varying levels of nicotine.

E-cigarettes, while not yet officially considered a "smoke cessation aid", are a great supplement or replacement to cigarette smoking. The vapor provides a satisfying throat hit without the need for inhaling harmful tobacco smoke. Now, with e-liquid replacement, there is an easier and more affordable way to keep those e-cigarettes producing satisfying vapor for weeks to months on end.
