Vape Maintenance: It's Important

With the vaping boom in full swing, people are no longer looking at their devices as a trendy tool for nicotine delivery. Instead, they’re looking at it as an investment. And for this reason, maintenance has become more important than ever before.

Maintaining your vaping equipment is something everyone should become familiar with. Not only does it help protect your investment, but it ensures that it works at peak performance.

If you’re serious about protecting your vaporizer, understanding when to clean your device is critical.

Generally speaking, there is no right or wrong time to clean your device. However, there are indicators to help you decide when a cleaning is required.
As a result of using your vape device daily, you can expect proper cleaning to be part of your maintenance schedule. Build-up and grime is a result of everything from regular use to carrying your device in your pocket or handbag.

You may also find that when you are switching flavors, cleaning your device in between will give more emphasis to the new flavor. While Georgia Peach nic salt tastes great on its own, its full flavor may be compromised if you had Iced Wintergreen nic salt in there previously and didn’t take the time to clean your vape in between.

Maintenance for Better Performance

Get this: if you don’t clean your equipment regularly and properly, connection issues can (and probably will) occur. For example, grime from e-liquid can cake onto the device’s connections, resulting in less than ideal performance.
Unfortunately, connection issues are just the start of your problems. A lack of maintenance can also reduce the longevity of your device, thus causing you to purchase a replacement sooner than you would like.

The best thing you can do is implement a preventative maintenance schedule. In other words, clean your device before it’s so dirty that it requires a deep cleaning in order to restore it’s former appearance and functionality.

If you’re using salt nicotine e-liquid, such as those from Saltbae, you may not face nearly as many issues due to the advanced design of vapor pod systems mostly used with salt nics.

Regardless of the equipment you’re using, make it a habit to inspect and clean your device often.
