Electronic cigarettes, sometimes called vapes, or vaporizers, are battery powered devices that utilize a heating element to convert E-Liquid into Vapor.
Electronic cigarettes contain a few different components.
The battery Is what sends power to the heating element when you press a button. This power will heat up the e-liquid to the point that it turns to vapor, which is then inhaled by the user. These devices are often referred to as "mods." Each mod can contain a few different features: buttons to change power settings, a power button to turn the device on or off as well as fire the device, and a 510 connection which the "tank" or "atomizer" will screw into. The battery in your device can either be internal (meaning that it is built into the device and not replaceable) or external (meaning that you can take the battery out and put a fresh one in.
The atomizer, sometimes referred to as a tank, is the part of the device that contains both the coil and the e-liquid. Some tanks have a reservoir that holds enough e-liquid so the user doesn't have to refill it constantly. Some atomizers called "droppers" are devices that contain an exposed coil that the user will drip e-liquid directly on to. These types of devices don't have reservoirs.
The coil is the heating element of your device. These are often replaceable units that contain wire and a wicking material (usually cotton or rayon) to absorb the e-liquid that surrounds it. When the user presses the button on their battery, the coil will heat up the liquid that has been absorbed by the cotton and turn it into vapor. Some devices require that a coil be built by the user.
There are generally four ingredients in E-Liquid. The ingredients will be listed on the side of your bottle.
PG (Propylene Glycol)
PG is generally a thinner liquid that is responsible for carrying or intensifying the flavoring in an e-liquid. Propylene Glycol can also be found in baked goods, medicines, cosmetics, soap, etc.
VG (Vegetable Glycerin)
VG is generally a thicker liquid that is responsible for increased vapor production. E-Liquids with a high ratio of VG can produce more dense, thick vapor. Vegetable Glycerin can also be found in baked goods, sweeteners, and a filler in foods
Nicotine in E-Liquid comes in several different strengths that will be noted on your bottle. The most common nicotine strengths are 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, and 12mg, where mg = milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of e-liquid.
Artificial and Natural Flavorings
Both artificial and natural flavorings are used in E-Liquid. These are what make your E-Liquid taste the way that they do. Tobacco flavoring will make your E-Liquid taste like tobacco, menthol will give it a cooling sensation, etc.
There are a number of external factors that may impact why your favorite e-liquid just doesn't taste right!
- Bottle Handling: Please shake the bottle before use. Keep your E-Liquid away from sunlight. Some flavorings in e-liquid can separate, and while this is totally harmless it can effect how the product tastes. Shaking before use ensures that the product is well mixed.
- Dehydration: Vaping can dry out your mouth and tongue. This can cause a condition known as "Vapor's Tongue" where you aren't able to taste or distinguish flavors as normal. Make sure to keep yourself hydrated. Swapping to a different flavor for a short period of time can also wake up your taste buds!
- Coils/Atomizers: After prolonged usage, coils will need changing. A change in flavor or harshness are hints that coils need changing. Please note that there is no definitive time that you need to change your coil - it is entirely subjective. If it doesn't taste right, try changing the coil! When changing the coil, you can also clean your atomizer to ensure proper operation and quality of vape. Take the atomizer completely apart - making sure to keep track of all parts and o-rings. Running it under cool water and drying with a paper towel should be plenty! Make sure to not wash your coil underwater, or any part of a battery as this can be dangerous.
- Check your wattage: Tinkering with the wattage of your device can help find a sweet spot for both you and the particular E-Liquid that your vaping. On a new, properly primed coil, start at a lower wattage and work your way up. Some coils have a recommended wattage range printed on the side that you can use as a reference.
It can be very frustrating when there seems to be issues with your device. Sometimes it could be something simple like running low on liquid, running out of battery charge, or simply burning out your atomizing device (cartomizer/tank/clearomizer). Having the power of knowledge is something that can save you time, money, energy, as well as prevent you from going back to smoking. Here are a few common problems that arise with devices that Vape Dojo provides.
Problem: I charged my battery and nothing happens! The button on my vape doesn't light up at all!
Answer: Many devices have a built in safety feature that will allow you to "lock" your device for safe storage in a pocket, or purse. Quickly press your power button 3-6 times (varies depending on device). You will usually see a flashing light that will indicate the device is unlocked.
Problem: My device is on, my tank is attached, but there is no vape!
Answer: This is most likely an issue where your tank is not making a proper connection to your battery. Ensure that the battery terminal is clean (you can use a paper towel or Q-Tip). Make sure that your tank is also properly screwed into your device.
Problem: My tank is leaking E-Liquid out of the airflow, what is going on?
Answer: Leaking can happen for several different reasons. If you are using a new tank, or just recently swapped the coil, it's possible that the device was overfilled or that there is liquid in the center tube. You can confirm if your tank is overfilled by trying to take a puff and seeing if you can get a clear, clean hit, or if it's gurgling. If it's gurgling, it's likely that the device was overfilled. You can try blowing outwards through the center mouth piece to get rid of some of the excess E-Liquid. If this solution doesn't work, try disassembling your tank, and reassembling with a new coil.
