If you vape and are a lover of the hot summer sun, then it’s important to be mindful of a few key factors that may contribute significantly to your vaping experience. From storing your vaporizer correctly to understanding what happens when your e-liquid gets too hot, let's take a look at how to look after your e-cig in hot weather.
Storing Your Vaporizer Safely
There’s something special about summer isn’t there? As the blue skies and sunshine invite us out to play, it can be justifiably tempting to let loose a little. Free from inhibitions and lusting for long days spent soaking up the sun, storing your e-cigarette safely may not feasibly be at the forefront of your thoughts. Akin to willfully ignoring the advice to apply sunscreen and getting burnt to a crisp, not giving your vaporizer its due respect may wreak havoc with both your device and e-juice.
If you’re the kind of intrepid adventurer intent on exploring the great outdoors, keeping your e-cig safe and secure is a must. Firstly, if you've not already got one, then it's probably time to invest in a carry case to keep your e-cig battery and e-liquid safe and sound. Having a designated space for your kit will remove the anxiety and panic induced once you’ve realized that your e-cig batteries and e-liquid have tumbled from your pockets, as you traipse from here to there this summer. A carry case will also mean that your vaping device doesn’t get lost in transition when you decide to stop off for a welcome break.
Keep It Cool & Preserve Your Battery Lifespan
One of the most important things that you can do to ensure your e-cig stays in tip-top working order is to keep your vaporizer and e-juice cool. Avoid leaving your device in direct sunlight and store in a cool, dry place anytime you’re not vaping. Warm weather and heat contribute to a shorter lifespan for your battery, therefore keeping your e-cig battery regularly charged as well as having a back-up battery on standby will mean that you’ll avoid that awful moment when you realize your vaporizer is out of power and your hours away from civilization and nicotine. Whether at home or in the office, it’s as important as ever to avoid leaving your device unattended when being charged.
If you’re thinking of going on a road trip, try not to leave your e-cig in the car where it may be susceptible to too much sunlight and overheating. As the name suggests, e-cigarettes are electrical devices that contain components prone to the damage that heat can cause. Additionally, you should refrain from charging you e-cig battery in a hot car to further avoid the irreversible damage intense heat can cause.
Avoid E-Liquid Getting Too Hot
To avoid a nasty tasting vape, keeping your e-liquid cool and out of direct sunlight will ensure you continue to enjoy the great tasting vape that you’re used to. If you leave e-liquid in the sun and it becomes too hot, your e-liquid will thin, leaving you with minimal vapour clouds and a pretty nasty tasting vape. We’re not saying refrigerate your e-liquid, simply keep it stored in a cool, dry and dark place.
