If you’re looking for some tips on how to fix common issues with your e-cigarette, you’ve come to the right place. While most e-cigarettes have a number of components, most fixes are not that complex. You may find that your e-cig has a few simple issues, but if you have no idea how to do so, read on to learn how to fix your vape yourself.

Harsh Throat hits

VG and PG ratios are another key factor to consider when choosing an e-liquid flavour. High PG ratios produce a powerful throat hit, while lower PG ratios produce a weaker throat hit. Jucies with more VG tend to produce bigger clouds and more intense flavours. A good PG/VG ratio is the best balance between taste and throat hit.

Some e-liquids have more nicotine than others. Some of the most effective throat hits come from fruity e-liquids. Citrus and grape flavors are known to have a sharp throat hit, while mango and tropical fruit flavours are known for producing a smoother throat hit. Dessert-like flavours, like ice cream, or pie-like e-liquids, tend to be lighter on the throat.

If you’re a heavy smoker, look for a higher nicotine strength in your e-liquid. For lighter smokers, choose a lower strength. As long as you don’t suffer from frequent throat hits, you’ll be able to satisfy your nicotine cravings.

eJuice leaking from the tank or through the airflow

Sometimes the e-liquid in your e-cigarette leaks through the airflow hole or the tank itself. This causes the device to become less airtight and e-liquid to leak into chambers it shouldn’t be. To fix this issue, it’s best to take a look at the airflow hole and the tank itself. If it’s cracked, it will likely be inexpensive to replace. You can also try replacing the o-rings on your device. Your tank may have included extra rubber seals incase of any damage. Try to replace all o-rings on your device before purchasing a new glass or tank.

When you vape, you shouldn’t place your device on its side for long periods of time. Generally, it’s best to stand your tank upright, and never rest it on its side. If you’re vaping at night or while at work, you might accidentally place the device on its side. Leaving it on its side may cause the e-liquid to leak from the airflow holes.

Another common cause of a leaky e-liquid tank is the incorrect way of filling the tank. Never overfill your vape tank, and read the manual carefully. Always fill your vape with a bit of air in the top. This will help create a vacuum inside the tank, and prevent e-liquid from leaking through the airflow holes. Lastly, make sure you have enough air in the tank to allow for the proper airflow.


General Check Ups

Be sure your vape has a full charge and has been turned on. Typically your device can be powered on by clicking the “fire” or “power” button 5 times quickly. Your vape may also include a “lock” function, of which can be typically activated by clicking the “fire” or “power button 3 times quickly. Also be sure all plastic and stickers have been removed from the pods or device to insure proper airflow and connections.

Checking if your e-cig or mod has an integrated lithium-ion battery

If your e-cig or mod doesn’t have an (internal/ non-removable battery) integrated lithium-ion battery, there are a few things you should check. Lithium-ion batteries in e-cigarettes are typically rated to last around 300 charges. However, they are sensitive to environmental conditions and can overheat. There are several possible causes of dead batteries. These include faulty batteries, misuse, and aging. Once your battery has worn out, it is recommended you purchase an additional battery for external battery devices and replace your device if it the battery is integrated.
