Cleaning and Maintaining Your Vape
Friday, 27 December 2019
Most of the time, keeping your vape in good condition only requires changing your coil or replacing your pod. But if you're picking up a mod you haven't used in a while, rediscovering an old favourite tank that's full of ancient mystery e-liquid or you've simply put your favourite kit through the wars, it might require a little bit of extra attention to get it looking and feeling like new again. You might be surprised at how much difference to flavour, cloud production and overall performance deep cleaning makes!
How to clean and maintain your vape mod
We recommend the following steps to keep your mod working well. Remember that the mod is an electrical item, so don't wash it with water.
While cleaning a mod isn't too difficult, the best way to keep it clean in the first place is to keep an eye on your tank when you're refilling to catch any leaks before they reach the mod - especially if you've just installed a new coil. It is unfortunately possible for an e-liquid leak to damage the circuitry of a mod, so you're better safe than sorry.
How to clean and maintain your vape tank
Outside of changing your coil when the flavour weakens or when the coil changes colour, it can be useful to give your tank a good deep clean every couple of weeks. We also recommend washing your vape tank if you are switching between two dramatically different vape flavours - there's nothing quite like filling up with a lovely sweet dessert flavour, only to find that mixed in with that flavour is the the ghost of the menthol flavour you were previously enjoying! Some particularly strongly flavoured e-liquids do have a tendency to "stick" to the tank, so if you just can't shake that weird undertone we do recommend a thorough clean.
Note: if this is the first time you are disassembling a particular tank, we recommend having the manual to hand so you can easily put all the pieces back together. There's nothing worse than spending ages trying to figure out where that last tricky piece should go!
How to clean and maintain your vape pod mod
While the line between pod kits and tank kits is blurring more and more due to the boom in pods with replaceable coils, one thing pod mods still have in common is that generally the chamber that holds the e-liquid sits inside the body of the device.
