Device looking a bit worse for wear? Thinking about getting a new device? It could be all you need is to give it a good clean! Long-term usage and performance of your device relies on regular maintenance, as well as ensuring maximum flavour with every hit. Hardware maintenance is always extremely important, but now more than ever we must be looking after anything we handle daily with regular cleaning.  

You may be a bit intimidated at first, but we have put together a quick and simple guide on how to clean the most common devices. 

What device do you have? 

First it is important to know what device that you have and how it is made up. Below are the most common devices that you will find on the market today:

When do you need to clean your device? 

We recommend cleaning your vape tank every time you change flavours to ensure that you are getting the best out of your flavour each time. For this, a simple rinse and clean will do. It is best to make a habit of doing this once a week alongside a more thorough clean every couple of weeks to keep your device in the best condition. Maintaining your device like this will ensure consistent output from your device. 

A Simple Rinse 

  1. Detach tank from your mod 
  1. Dispose of any remaining e-liquid in the tank 
  1. Completely dissemble your tank 
  1. Place all tank components into a bowl and wash until water is clean (if the tank is extremely dirty, a few drops of dish soap will help) 
  1. Dry off with a paper towel and leave to air-dry for 10-15 minutes 
  1. Reassemble your newly cleaned device! 

A Deep Clean 

  1. Detach tank from your mod 
  1. Dispose of any remaining e-liquid in the tank 
  1. Completely dissemble your tank 
  1. Dampen a cloth or paper towel with alcohol (high-proof and non-flavoured vodka works best as a solvent to break down e-liquid deposits) and scrub any tough areas until the tank is completely clean 
  1. Wipe and rinse with warm water 
  1. Leave to air-dry for 10-15 minutes 
  1. Reassemble your device 

Changing your Coils 

Depending on how often you use your device, you will need to change your coils regularly to ensure best performance from your device. We have a wide range of coils available on our website for you to choose from, and changing it over is relatively simple. This will entirely depend on the device that you are using, but generally speaking you just need to remove the tank from the device and discard the remaining e-liquid. Unscrew the coil from the tank and screw on the new one. Once you have reattached your tank, you are ready to go. 

Happy vaping with your newly cleaned device!
