Summer Vaping Tips- Using your vape in hot weather
TOP TIPS ON CARING FOR YOUR E-CIG IN SUMMER
Keep your device cool - Avoid leaving your E-Cig in direct sun, or any places that become especially warm such as a hot car.
Keep your e-liquid cool - Make sure to store your vape juice in a cool, dry place. Don’t be tempted to store it in the fridge, as cooler temperatures will affect the flavour and effectiveness of your liquid.
Keep your e-cig charged - Warmer weather will run your battery life down faster. It may also mean thunderstorms and power outages. So keeping your E-Cig and back up battery charged is a good idea.
Don’t charge your E-Cig in a hot car.
Don’t leave batteries in direct sunlight - Make sure batteries are kept in a cool and dry place and don’t be tempted to carry them around loose in your bag as they could easily overheat.
Replace older batteries for summer - Batteries have a life cycle of around 120 - 150 recharge uses.
Keep batteries in a case at all times when not in use.
Don’t get your device wet.
Be Careful when travelling – Sand and dirt from can damage your E-Cig. Use a carry case when out and about to protect your device.
Look after your coils - The hot weather can cause the sugar in your e-liquid to caramelise and damage the coils in your E-Cig. Clean them regularly and have replacements just incase.
Watch for leakage in the tank - If your tank gets too hot, it can lead to the seals breaking down and e-liquid leaking out. If your tank is quite old, it may be time to get a new one.
Each country has their own laws on vaping, and it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with them before travelling.
When transporting your E-Cig it’s always best to use a carry case to protect it from heat and damage. You will need to check your airline for how to transport your E-Cig and what you are allowed to take with you. You can find some guidelines on this at ok-ecig.com/travelling-with-e-cigarettes/. Most airlines ask you to keep your device in your carry on bags rather than your checked luggage.
These days most airports in the UK don’t allow the use of E-Cigs within their buildings, you will need to check your specific airport for more information.
This website will give you a breakdown of the current rules for all UK airports. However, we still recommend checking with the specific airport you’re flying from before you leave.
