Common Vaping Mistakes
Even the pros get on the wrong side of these vaping faux pas.
Vaping is very popular indeed and it’s not surprising that with this surge of popularity, lots of people who are new to vaping have fallen into the trap of making big mistakes. This can end in embarrassment, bad tastes or even device malfunctions. It’s not just for your own enjoyment that you should vape correctly but for your safety as well. Below you can find some of the common mistakes that often plague vapers, and some of the ways to rectify these.
If your vape device is running low on e liquid or it is heating up too fast for the system to handle, you may experience a dry hit. These happen when the coil begins to burn and can lead to a terrible tasting vape hit. To avoid this, make sure you are not vaping at a temperature which is too high or that you’re not using any bad quality coils, mouthpieces or atomiser heads.
Oversaturating the wick
Over saturating your wick with e liquid means that the cotton around the atomiser head has been soaked through too heavily. This is especially common a mistake for those using drip tips, meaning tankless devices which have the e liquid dripped directly onto them. If you’re looking to stop this from happening then make sure that the cotton you are using is not soaked through and that your tank is fitted tight enough for the juice not to leak.
Blowing the circuit
It is often the case with unregulated mods that those who are inexperienced with circuit building can sometimes short it out. The reason for this is that unregulated mods do not have the safety features in place like circuit breakers. This is so that the vaping veterans among us can build their own circuits and enhance their vaping experience and is why unregulated devices are specifically designed for those with more experience. Stay clear of these unless you know how to rebuild your own devices?
Too much nicotine
One flexible aspect of vaping is in the fact that you can choose how much nicotine is in your vape device. For those who are looking for a larger nicotine hit, the sky’s the limit, especially with nic salt devices which you add your own nicotine solution to. This can backfire if you add to much and feel sick though. The best option is to find out what level of nicotine will meet your needs and to make sure you don’t exceed it.
Failing to clean out your tank between vape cartidges or flavours can lead to some unwanted effects. If any of the old juice has congealed, then it is possible that you could end up with spit back or weird flavour mixes. Make sure you take the tank off of your device and clean it, as well as replacing the wicking cotton so as to get the most out of your new e liquidflavour.
