Vaping 101: Troubleshooting Common Vaping Issues

Navigating Vaping Challenges: Your Essential Troubleshooting Guide

Troubleshoot all your common vaping issues with our guide. As vaping continues to gain popularity, beginners often have a host of questions and concerns. Choosing coils, handling devices, and troubleshooting issues can feel overwhelming. Have no fear! We’ve compiled the top five questions and problems that vapers commonly face and provided the troubleshooting solutions you’ve been seeking. With our expert advice, you’ll swiftly become a vaping pro, confidently transitioning from cigarettes to the world of vaping.

Problem 1: My Device Isn’t Drawing!

If your device isn’t delivering the satisfying draws you’re expecting, here are some steps you can take:

  • Check if your device is powered on: Sometimes, the solution is as simple as ensuring your device is switched on. Rapidly press the button five times (or three, depending on your device) to activate it.
  • Ensure your device is fully charged: Check the battery indicators such as a full battery icon or a green light. If necessary, try using a different charger.
  • Clean your device: Residue from e-liquids, dirt, or debris can hinder your device’s performance. A quick clean of the ports, coil, prongs, and crevices with a cotton swab or isopropyl alcohol can solve this issue.
  • Change your pod/coil: If drawing feels obstructed, it might be time to change your pod or coil. Aging coils can impact performance, taste, and draw. Opt for a fresh replacement to get back to a satisfying vaping experience.

Problem 2: Leaking and Spitting

Leaking and spitting can disrupt your vaping experience. Here’s how to prevent and address these issues:

  • Ensure secure assembly: Tighten all device parts, including the coil and tank components, to prevent leaks.
  • Use your device regularly: If your device sits idle for extended periods, leakage might occur. Empty the pod/coil before storage to avoid this.
  • Avoid “chain-vaping”: Hitting your device repeatedly in quick succession can thin e-liquid and lead to leaks or spitting. Space out your hits by waiting 5-10 seconds between draws.
  • Mind your fill level: Overfilling your pod/tank can cause spitting and gurgling sounds. Aim to fill to about ¾ or follow the max fill line.
  • Keep your device cool: Vaping with a hot device can lead to thinning e-liquid, which might cause leaks or spitting. Allow your device to cool before vaping to avoid this issue.

Problem 3: Understanding Coils

Coils are fundamental to vaping. Here’s how to change and choose them wisely:

  • Changing coils: Coils can be easily replaced. Gently pull or release the coil from the tank. If stuck, consider using pliers or contacting the seller.
  • Recognizing coil replacement time: When the taste is muted or burnt, it’s time to swap out the coil. Generally, replace your coil every 2-4 weeks to ensure consistent performance.
  • Mesh vs. Regular coils: Mesh coils offer smoother hits and enhanced flavor production. They’re faster and generate more vapor. Regular coils are suitable for less particular vapers.

Problem 4: Selecting the Right Ohm Level

Ohm levels influence your vaping experience. Here’s how to choose:

  • Higher ohms (1.2, 1.8, 2.1) offer a tighter draw and less cloud.
  • Lower ohms (0.25, 0.5, 0.8) result in airier draws and more vapor.
  • Match lower ohms with sub-ohm devices and higher ohms with pod systems or mouth-to-lung hits.

Problem 5: Nic Salts

Nic salts provide high nicotine content with a smoother hit. Use them wisely:

  • Ideal for pod systems and low-wattage devices.
  • Avoid using nic salts in sub-ohm devices to prevent potential health issues.
