Any regular atomizer for e-cigarettes would last you a good period, most likely between 30 to 45 days, all depending on how much you use your e-cigarette. It also comes down to the quality of your atomizer and how often you actually vape, but did you know you could make it last longer? Some people can even make their atomizer last up to 3-4 months. Below we’ll go over some steps you can take to make your atomizer last longer.
The answer is actually quite a simple one, it all comes down to cleaning! Even if you are a heavy vaper, it does not matter – this will work for you whether you’re someone who likes to vape occasionally or someone who vapes heavily. If you only vape occasionally then your atomizer probably already lasts you a long time, but with this cleaning technique, you will get even more use out of your atomizer for e-cigarettes.
The way to clean your atomizer is to stand in front of the sink or outside somewhere where the liquid won’t ruin anything. Take each one and remove the tank. You want to start blowing from the tank end gently but with a strong force for about 10 to 15 seconds. You will start to see any leftover liquid start to drip out of the other end. You can do this as many times you like until you feel that you have drained all of the liquid out. Shake it vigorously to get the last few drops out and then you want to wipe it clean with some paper towel, easy right? You also need to keep e-liquid in good condition to ensure longer life of your e-cig atomizer.
One thing you should remember is that most e-cigarettes will leak some liquid into the battery eventually or in your pocket or bag, wherever you carry them. This is completely normal and happens all the time but will regular cleaning, the chances of this happening are lower. You also want to clean the battery terminal every night or morning depending on your routine, you also want to clean them every time you refill your tanks. The most efficient and inexpensive way you can do this, is to get a big box of q-tips and give them a quick wipe down even in those hard-to-reach places.
If you have a tank that comes apart all together, then you can also clean it separately. Most people do this with warm soapy water. Leave it to sit in warm soapy water for about 15 minutes (make sure the water isn’t really hot as you never want to end up warping the tank from heat). Give it a good rinse with some clean water after this to get rid of any soapy residue that may be left over. You can then leave it standing upright to dry on a paper towel overnight. The next morning or whenever you want to use it next, pop it back into place and you’re done (just make sure it’s completely dry).
Remember that you should also be able to recognize the signs of an atomizer that is starting to fail. No matter how many times you clean it or how well you take care of it, sometimes you might just need to replace it. Now I know that they are not that expensive, so you might think that cleaning it will be a waste of time, but why not try to get the most value for your money? Hopefully, after reading this article, you can successfully clean your atomizer and make the most use of it.
