Summer is here - Getting the best out of your vape during the hot weather!

February 14, 2017

It's 30 degrees outside and you're sitting in the sun sweating your bum off. You look at your tank and there's a slow dribble happening from the bottom around the airflow rings... my tank is broken! you exclaim, before drowning your sorrows in another cold drink.

But all is not lost. You see, the liquid inside your tank is designed to thin out when it is heated, this is what helps makes the vapour you produce when you take a draw on your tank. It can also mean that if your tank is left in direct sunlight, in a hot room or your car the tank can start to show some signs of leakage - but all is not lost.

If your tank starts to leak from the bottom, unscrew the tank off your mod then unscrew the bottom part, usually where the airflow rings are, then unscrew the coil from this (if it is screwed into the base).

Run the base under some water and leave to dry overnight, or dry out with a cotton bud. Re-assemble, paying attention to re-seating the coil correctly and so that it is finger tightness, then screw the top of your tank on and you're ready to go.

Make sure that you also remove any liquid that may have seeped onto your mod or around the 510 connector, the part you screw your tank into.

Also, it's best not to leave batteries in direct sunlight at all. It can damage and potentially short the battery. 

Have fun vaping this summer!
