Why is my battery not working?

A non-responsive vape battery can be due to several reasons…it could be a connection issue, where the battery isn’t properly connected to the atomiser.

Ensure that the battery and atomizer are tightly screwed together, if the problem persists, the battery may be dead or faulty…in this case, replacing the battery is the best solution.

How to stop your vape device from leaking?

Leaking can occur if the vape device is not assembled correctly. Make sure all parts are tightly screwed together.

Overfilling your devices’ tank can also cause full leaks, so avoid filling the e-liquid to the brim.

Lastly, check the O-rings inside your tank for any damage and replace them if necessary.

How to prevent dry and burnt hits?

Dry and burnt hits are often due to a lack of e-liquid in the coil, to prevent this, always ensure your tank is adequately filled.

Also, allow the liquid to soak into the wick for a few minutes before vaping, especially when using a new coil.

How to prevent your vape from spitting liquid?

Spitting, or ‘spit back’, happens when e-liquid gets into the mouthpiece. This can be due to over-priming the coil or flooding the tank.

To prevent spit back, try to avoid overfilling the tank with your e-liquid and inhale slowly and steadily.

How to get a better throat hit?

The ‘throat hit’ is the sensation felt in the back of the throat when inhaling a nicotine-based vapour.

To enhance this further for your own satisfaction, you can use e-liquids with higher nicotine levels or choose a higher-PG e-liquid.

Also, try adjusting the airflow and power settings on your device to get the maximised results for your vaping experience.
