Why is My Disposable Vape Auto-Firing & How to Stop It?
The question that gets asked a lot is, "How should I stop my disposable from auto-firing?". The best way to ensure there is no auto-firing is by having all your disposable vape pens vetted. Eightvape won't sell anything that has had horrible reviews or quality issues.
How to Stop Your Disposable Vape from Auto-Firing?
It's best to follow precautions like keeping your vape stand upright and not leaving your vapes in the heat, especially the sun. If your device has an airflow control, try to use it with the airflow open from time to time. If you notice your vape auto-firing multiple times, it's best to throw it away.
Why is My Disposable Vape Blinking?
When a disposable vape pen blinks, it's because it's out of battery or it's from overheating. You either need to recharge it or wait before taking another puff. Also try to keep your puffs short. Each vape will have it's own style of blinking. Some will repeatedly flash while other may blink 2-5 times.
A blinking disposable device can also be a byproduct of having a fake vape. This doesn't happen too often but it's best to make sure you're vaping on an authentic brand.
5 Reasons Why Your Disposable Vape Auto Fires?
An auto-firing disposable vape can be a dangerous situation. It's super important to address it ASAP. Here are some potential reasons why your disposable vape might be auto-firing and how to stop it:
1. Malfunctioning Battery
The battery in your disposable vape might be faulty or damaged, causing it to auto-fire. To fix this issue, you should dispose of the device safely and avoid using it again.
2. Stuck Firing Button
The firing button on your disposable vape might be stuck or malfunctioning, causing it to continuously fire. To stop this, try tapping the button or shaking the device gently to see if that releases it. If that doesn't work, dispose of the device safely and avoid using it again.
3. E-liquid Seeping into the Battery
If e-liquid leaks into the battery compartment of your disposable vape, it can cause the device to auto-fire. To prevent this, avoid overfilling the tank (or refilling it up at all) and ensure that the device is always stored upright.
In rare cases, overheating can cause a disposable vape to auto-fire. This can be caused by leaving the device in direct sunlight or in a hot car for an extended period of time. To prevent this, store your disposable vape in a cool, dry place.
If your disposable vape is auto-firing, the best course of action is to dispose of it safely and avoid using it again. Never try to fix a malfunctioning vape device yourself, as this can be dangerous. If you're unsure about how to safely dispose of a disposable vape, check with your local waste management agency for guidance.
5. Manufacturing Defect
In some cases, the device may be auto-firing due to a manufacturing defect. This happens very rarely but due to mass manufacturing, it can happen from time to time.
Can My Disposable Vape Catch on Fire?
The chance of your disposable vape catching on fire is super low but there is always that possibility. Majority of the recorded disposables that have caught fire usually start when it auto fires. This leads to the battery overheating, also called thermal runway. This is similar to what Samsung was experiencing when their phones were randomly overheating. The battery starts swelling up then catches on fire.
Chances of this happening to your disposable is very low if you practice safety precautions.
