How to Care for your SMOKO VAPE

Congratulations! You have taken the first step to being smoke-free and bought a SMOKO VAPE E-cigarette Starter kit.

 

The SMOKO VAPE is designed to be easy to use and realistic, but to get the most out of your VAPE you will need to know how to maintain, clean and store all your VAPE refills and batteries to ensure you get the best vaping experience.

 


HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SMOKO VAPE E-CIGARETTE

One of the greatest things about the VAPE starter kit is that it is so simple; there are no buttons to press, no coils to replace and no tanks to rinse. By following these simple steps with the batteries and refills you can keep them in top condition and make sure you stay off the cigarettes for good.

 

How To Use a VAPE E-Cigarette

STORING YOUR VAPE E-CIGARETTE

Keep Your VAPE Refills Out Of Direct Sunlight

Like any liquid, the e-liquid in your VAPE refills can evaporate. By keeping the refills in sunlight, you speed up the evaporation, meaning less for you to puff on!

 

Don’t Get The VAPE E-Cigarette Battery Wet

  • When it comes to batteries this is vitally important, as water and electronics do not mix. If your battery gets soaked then we would suggest recycling it (most supermarkets have places to recycle batteries). The VAPE refills can also be affected by water, and if they get soaked the liquid inside can be diluted. So the moral of this story – don’t go swimming with your SMOKO VAPE.
  •  

Don’t Leave Your VAPE Refills In A Hot Place

  • We suggest that you shouldn’t keep your VAPE refills anywhere they can get hot. Treat them like a fine wine and keep them in a dry, dark and cool place. You don’t want the e-liquid in your VAPE refills to evaporate!
  •  

Keep Your VAPE Secure

  • If you leave your refills or batteries in a drawer with lots of other things they can get banged up. If this happens for long enough you can damage your refills and batteries and be left with nice looking ornaments rather than a working VAPE.
  •  

KEEPING YOUR VAPE E-CIGARETTE IN TOP CONDITION

Leave Your Refill Upright

  • When you are not using your VAPE, it’s best to keep it standing upright if possible. If there isn’t that much liquid left in the refill, leaving it on its side can make the liquid pool away from the ceramic coil which would partially dry out. When you took your next puff and the coil is partially dry it can cause an odd taste.
  •  

Don’t Use Your VAPE Too Much

  • About 5 to 7 puffs is about the same amount of nicotine as 1 cigarette, so don’t puff away without thinking about it! If you do use the VAPE a lot in quick succession, condensation can build up from all the vapour that you didn’t puff on. Over time this can condense back into liquid and build up in the vapour channel.
  •  

Be Gentle - Don’t Be Too Rough

  • As the VAPE is small and discreet it can be easy to throw them into a bag or pocket and forget about it. Although they are designed to be sturdy, if they get banged around enough they will start to malfunction.
  •  

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR VAPE E-CIGARETTE

  • Over time condensation from the vapour, dust and dirt can build up on your battery and the refills. By cleaning your battery and refill regularly you can keep your VAPE in top condition, and keep it working like it should.
  •  
  • The battery especially needs cleaning, as the connector attracts dirt and grime. If the VAPE battery isn’t cleaned over time a covering can build up, stopping the connection from the battery to your refills.

  •  
  • The good news is that due to the VAPE being designed to be easy to use, it is also easy to clean.

 

Cleaning Your VAPE E-Cigarette Battery

  • Before you begin you will need a cloth or tissue to wipe the connector end of the battery. We suggest that you do this every time you recharge the battery or when your replace a refill. This will keep your battery nice and clean.

     

    1. 1) Unscrew the refill from the battery and make sure it is not plugged in to charge.
    2.  
    3. 2) Inside the part of the battery that you normally screw the refill onto you will see a silver disk with a hole in the centre, this is the connector.
    4.  
    5. 3) Gently wipe the connector, making sure to not to press too hard.
    6.  
    7. 4) Clean the outer edge as well, making sure to reach beneath the connector if you can.
    8.  

Cleaning Your VAPE Refills

Although not as important as cleaning your battery (as VAPE refills are disposable) it is a good idea whenever you take a VAPE refill off a battery, or if it has been sitting around for a day or two, to give your refill a quick clean.

 

Like the battery you will need a cloth or tissue.

  •  
  • 1) Turn over the refill so the mouthpiece is facing downwards.

  •  

    1. 2) You will see a disk with a hole in the centre, this is the connector and the main item that needs to be cleaned
    2.  
    3. 3) Carefully wipe any condensation or dirt from the connector, making sure that you don’t push it down.
    4.  
    5. 4) Don’t be too rough! The connector can come out so don’t pull on it too much.
    6.  
    7. 5) Wipe up any other dirt from around the edge.
    8.  

Cleaning The Vapour Channel On Your VAPE Refill

  • If you puff on the VAPE a lot in a short amount of time, condensation can build up in the vapour channel (the part the vapour travels up inside the VAPE refill). This can slow down vapour or cause condensation to spit out. There are two ways to clean out the condensation:

     

    1. 1) Hold the VAPE refill over a sink with the mouthpiece facing the sink, and then give it a few short flicks.
    2.  
    3. 2) With kitchen roll or any other thin material roll the material into a point and put it down the channel until it’s halfway down. Tip the refill down, so the mouthpiece is facing the ground, and let the material soak up the condensation.
    4.  

HOW TO FIX YOUR VAPE E-CIGARETTE

  • Whether due to wear and tear, old age or just bad luck sometimes your VAPE will stop working. However there are a few quick tricks you can try to get your VAPE working again.

  •  

My VAPE Refill Not Producing Any Vapour

  • This is normally down to a connection issue between the refills and the battery, as power isn’t getting to the VAPE refill and so the atomiser isn’t turning the e-liquid into vapour. To get it started again:

  •  
  • 1) Make sure your VAPE battery is fully charged

  •  
  • 2) Make sure to clean the VAPE battery and refills – this is the most common issue with the VAPE and giving the connectors on the battery and refill a clean can help get that connection working again.

  •  
  • 3) Move the connector in the battery – If cleaning doesn’t work it could be the battery’s connector has been pushed down. With a toothpick, or anything small and thin give the connector a wiggle upwards. It only needs a millimetre so don’t be too rough! Do this a couple of times around the connector and try the refill again.

  •  
  • 4) Try the VAPE refill on a different battery – It might be that your refill is not connecting, try it on several batteries and see if it will work on any of them.

  •  

One Of My VAPE Refills Doesn’t Taste Right

  • If you put on a refill and it doesn’t taste right, it could be the coil hasn’t been soaked in the liquid enough or has dried out. To fix this:

  •  
  • 1) Leave the refill upright for 10 minutes – If the refill has been on its side for a long time it could be the coil hasn’t absorbed the e-liquid. Leave it upright for 10 minutes to let the liquid be absorbed again.

  •  
  • 2)Unscrew the refill from the VAPE battery and take a few puffs – Like priming a pump if you take a few short puffs when the refill isn’t connected you can get the liquid moving back onto the coil.

  •  
  • 3) Clean the VAPE – If the connection isn’t quite right it can make the refill taste strange, cleaning the battery and the refill can help with this.

  •  
  • 4)Try the refill on a new battery – If cleaning doesn’t work then try the refill on a newly charged VAPE battery.

QUICK TIPS FOR YOUR VAPE E-CIGARETTE

    1. Lastly we have a few tips that have helped us make the best use of the VAPE e-cigarette.
    2.  

Don’t Use Your Battery To The Very End

    • To make your battery last as long as possible put it on charge when the light at the bottom of the battery flashes red. Using it until they very end repeatedly can shorten the life of the battery.
    •  

Don’t Overcharge Your VAPE Battery

    • Repeatedly leaving your battery to charge overnight or for hours after it’s finished charging can also shorten the life span of your battery. So once the light at the bottom shows green, take the VAPE battery off charge!
    •  

When You Are Finished With The VAPE, Put It Out Of Easy Reach

    • It can be easy to overuse the VAPE refill so once you have had your fill (5 to 7 big puffs is roughly equivalent to 1 cigarette) put it away. This will stop you from puffing on it more than you need to!
    •  

Try Different Flavours

    • We suggest starting on a similar tobacco flavour when you first start so you get used to vaping. Once you have made the switch and are completely off cigarettes, why not try some of other flavours? It can be useful to have two different flavours, so if you get bored of one flavour you can always hop to another.
    •  

Have Multiple VAPE Batteries

    • There is nothing worse than having to wait until a battery is charged to continue vaping, make sure you have a few fully charged VAPE batteries you can use when one needs charging.
    •  

VAPE Batteries Last About 3 Months

    • This will depend on your personal usage, but on average a VAPE battery lasts about 3 months before wear and tear gets to it and you start getting issues. If you need to get a new battery you can buy one here - https://smoko.com/pages/e-cigarette-accessories
