First Time Vaping Tips

Don't Vape Too Fast

There are two main reasons why you shouldn't vape too fast. The first one is so you can get used to the nicotine strength. The second and main reason is because you don't want your battery overheating. The lithium-ion battery inside can heat up and swell up.

Keep it in a Safe Location

Always make sure your disposables are standing up straight and keep it hidden. This will help it from getting dirty along with any foul play on your disposable vape.

Don't Disassemble

Make sure you don't disassemble your disposable vape. This can break the electronic wiring inside and cause it to short circuit. It can also be hazardous if not properly handled.

Don't Refill

Disposable vapes are just like the name says. They are meant to be single use. When you're done, you shouldn't refill your vape. Not only will you need to open the entire vape apart but some vapes cannot take new liquid as it will seep into your battery.

Dispose of it Properly

The biggest worry with disposables is that they are disposed of improperly. They can often land in landfills and leak eLiquid into the ground. Find your local electronic recycling center and take it there!

How Long Do You Hold the Hit?

Holding in your vapor does not mean you will get more of a nicotine buzz. It's best not to keep the puff in. Take a hit and exhale it out. You also don't need to inhale very deeply to feel the effects.

Do I Need to Charge my Disposable eCig?

When disposable vapes first came out around 2017, there was no need to charge them because the puff count was so low. You didn't need to charge it because the battery life and eLiquid volume ended about the same time. With vapes getting smaller, they are loaded with more eJuice and the battery becomes smaller. This gives you the ability to charge your vape when the battery runs low. However, not all disposable vapes are rechargeable. 

How Do I Know My Disposable Vape is Done?

It won't be a secret when your vape is on its way out. You will start to realize before any visual indications. The best way to tell is when your coil is getting harsher to hit. If you take a hit and it burns your throat, it's time to throw it out.

You can also get very light vape if your battery is running low. If you can charge it, you should. If not, take your last few hits. Some vapes will blink if the battery is dead to let you know to switch it out. It can also be from overheating so watch how many puffs you take in a short amount of time.

However, disposable vapes have changed it back to become more discreet. Most of them wouldn't even be noticeable on your desk!
