Your advanced vape tank will collect dirt and grime over time and decrease in performance. At that point, a consumer who doesn’t know how to properly clean the vape tank could end up ordering a new one, when cleaning the old device is not difficult.
Improving the performance and longevity of your vape tank can save you a lot of money; but only if you understand the need for regular maintenance. In addition to that, keeping the components of your device in good shape will allow you to experience the maximum flavor hit with each hit.
This post presents you with a few tips on how to clean out a vape tank if you are a newbie.
Major components of a vape device
Before you can observe the fundamental vape cleaning tips, you will need to know the various parts of your vape. Pen-style vapes (vape pens) generally consist of a tank, a heating coil, and a battery.
- Vape tank
This part of the device stores the e-juice, and it’s normally combined with an atomizer into one unit.
- The coil
This is a heating element that heats the e-liquid and changes it into vapor
- The battery
This supplies the energy needed to power the device. Some vapes come with variable voltage and temperature control buttons. With vape mods, the battery is embedded in the housing itself.
Box mods have a similar design, except that they feature a relatively large housing and extra powerful batteries. Accordingly, vape boxes are known to offer a greater throat hit and there are more flavors available.
How to clean your vape tank by rinsing it
Why should I learn how to clean a vape tank?
Well, every vaper yearns for maximum flavor when buying e-liquids. However, you don’t want to make the mistake of putting new flavors in your tank and still sensing a residual hint of the previous e-juice. To avoid this situation, deep-clean your tank. While a simple rinse can get the job done for the most part, you may have to use alcohol to clean the tank when necessary.
To simply rinse-clean your tank:
- Get a bowl and fill it with warm water
- Remove the tank from the mod
- Dispose of any e-juice that remains in the tank
- Disassemble your vape tank completely
- Place the components of the tank into the bowl
- Thoroughly wash the tank components in water. You could add a drop of dish soap if the tank is particularly dirty.
- Dry off the parts with a paper towel and allow them to stand for 10 to 15 minutes to air dry
- Reassemble your tank and vape device.
Congratulations! You have just finished cleaning your vape tank.
