Are you new to the e-cigarette game? Did you take apart your e-cigarette to clean it, and now you can’t put it together again? Or maybe you accidentally dropped the device and now you’re desperately trying to re-attach it? If you need an easy-to-follow guide then look no further, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know to get you vaping ASAP.
The first thing to know is that an e-cigarette consists of four parts. There’s the cartridge (sometimes called a tank), the atomizer, the battery, and the tip. There’s a coil inside the cartridge, along with liquid and a wick. The atomizer comes attached to the cartridge. To use the e-cigarette, you suck on the tip, which activates the atomizer through sensors in the battery system. The atomizer heats the liquid through the coil, creating vapor. It’s as simple as that.
Now, if the e-cigarette breaks or splits apart, just remember, “TABAC,” which stands for: Tip and Battery, Atomizer, Cartridge. That’s the order the e-cigarette goes in. Make sure the atomizer is screw tightly onto the cartridge, as the last thing you want is leaking fluid.
If the e-cigarette doesn’t work, here’s a few helpful hints for putting it back together. It’s not rocket science but there is an art to it, so pay attention and you’ll be vaping in no time.
If the battery tip blinks when you’ve only vaped for a few seconds, it means the battery is almost dead. Re-charge the battery.
Make sure there’s no debris lingering between the atomizer and the battery. Lingering debris can prevent the e-cigarette from producing vapor.
The atomizer’s top ring can sometimes work itself off. Make sure it’s snapped on.
If you’re installing a new coil, make sure the wick has enough liquid by priming it first. This reduces the possibility that your wick will burn or that the coil will get damaged. To prime, put four or five drops of the liquid into the coil’s head. Next, put the coil’s head into the tank’s base. Then, fill the tank. Wait five or ten minutes before using.
If your e-cigarette uses a clearomizer instead of an atomizer, turn it counter-clockwise until you hear a click to attach it to the tank. Then, turn it clockwise until it’s completely hooked in.
Last is perhaps the e-cigarette’s most important aspect: the lock-out feature. The last thing anyone wants is to unknowingly turn on the e-cigarette when it’s resting in your pocket. So, once everything’s screwed in, quickly click the device’s button five times. That locks it so the battery can’t activate. To turn the device on again, simply click the button five times again. Voila!
Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, follow these steps, and you should have no problem putting your e-cigarette back together.
