Interested in vaping, or already someone who vapes? This blog is a fast and simple guide to some of our best tips and tricks when it comes to keeping your vape at optimal function, and avoiding pesky leaks.
If you’ve vaped for a while, you’re probably aware of the fact that sometimes, vapes leak. We know a leaky vape can really mess up the vaping experience, so we’ve gathered up the best ways to prevent your vape from leaking. Let’s dive into our top recommendations to avoid a leaking vape!
How to Prevent Vape Mod Leaks:
- Check and Replace O-Rings:
Ensure that all the O-rings on your vape tank are in good condition.
Over time, O-rings can wear out or become damaged, leading to leaks. Replace any damaged O-rings.
- Properly Tighten Components:
Make sure that all the components of your vape mod, including the tank, coil, and base, are properly tightened but not overly so.
Over-tightening can cause damage to the O-rings and create spaces for leaks.
- Use the Right Coil:
Using the correct and compatible coil for your vape mod is crucial. Using the wrong coil can lead to leakage.
Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for the appropriate coil for your specific tank.
- Use the Proper Wattage:
Ensure the wattage on your device is set within the recommended range for the coil you are using. Recommended wattage ranges are usually printed on the product box of the coil and the coil itself. Setting your device lower than the recommended wattage can cause leaking, and setting it higher can cause burning.
- Avoid Overfilling:
Do not overfill your tank, as this can lead to leakage. Leave a small air pocket at the top to allow for expansion.
Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for filling the tank to the recommended level.
- Keep the Tank Upright:
Try to keep your vape mod upright as much as possible, especially when it’s not in use.
If the mod is stored on its side, it may lead to leakage through the airflow holes.
- Monitor E-Liquid Viscosity:
Thicker e-liquids (higher VG content) may be less prone to leaking than thinner ones (higher PG content).
Experiment with different e-liquids to find the one that works best for your specific vape mod.
- Check for Cracks or Damage:
Inspect the tank for any cracks or damage regularly. A damaged tank can cause leaks.
If you notice any issues, replace the tank promptly.
- Adjust Airflow Properly:
Ensure that the airflow settings are adjusted correctly. Too much airflow can cause leaks.
Adjust the airflow to a level that suits your vaping preferences without causing leakage.
- Store Your Vape Properly:
When not in use, store your vape mod in a cool, dry place.
Extreme temperatures can affect the viscosity of e-liquid and potentially lead to leaks.
- Regular Maintenance:
Perform regular maintenance on your vape mod, including cleaning and inspecting all components. Cleaning the tank and other components can prevent the buildup of residue that may contribute to leaks.
We hope these tips come in handy when you’re enjoying your vape. Not only is a leaky vape extremely messy, it’s also a waste of vape liquid- and that’s a shame! Follow the above tips for the best experience possible when vaping.
