You can have a look at our other blog post here to understand the parts of a vape pen, there may be some difference between vape pens as some are made slightly different.
Like with any device these days, there are certain accessories that are a must and people like to make their e-cig their own like you would with a mobile phone for example. While your vape pen is easily portable, it is also very fragile, particularly if you are using pre-filled cartridges. From replacement parts, batteries, carry cases, and chargers just to name a few.
There are two main ways to load your chamber the first is to collect a small amount from the container with the dab tool or dabber and place it into the chamber. And the second is you can opt for pre-filled oil cartridges that are easy to replace. Simply unscrew the empty and screw on the new on.
Simply press the button and inhale while keeping the button pressed. There are some vape pens that are specifically used for cannabis oils which we also sell here, and these may not have the button, so in this case all you need to do is inhale (known as “auto draw”. Small sips are generally the way to go, so avoid inhaling as hard and as deep as you can.
Depending on the vape pen you use these settings may differ so always read the instructions that come with your vape pen.
- Turn on: 5 clicks
- Adjust the heat: 3 clicks
- Inhale: press and hold
- Turn off: 5 clicks
Vape pen users have their preferences when it comes to models with activation buttons or “auto draw” (meaning they’re activated simply by inhaling on the mouthpiece). The advantage of activation buttons is that they offer more control over temperature. The button heats the chamber as you hold it down, so be sure to hold the button down as you’re taking your hit.
Like with your phone if you use it a lot when you are out it is a good idea to keep it charged, the best time to do this is a night when you are asleep as it will be charged by the time you get up. It might be worthwhile also to get a carry case for your e-cig if you take it with you as most cases will be able to house all your accessories. A battery bank may also be a good option as well as a spare battery if you find yourself somewhere that doesn’t have a power outlet.
If you are traveling and don’t want to deal with the hassle of a non-disposable e-cigs then there you can pick up a disposable one or single-use e-cig, these are mainly one time use vape pens so when you have used up all the liquid you can just dispose of it, which makes it great for travelling.
As with smoking there are rules and regulations when it comes to vaping in public and you’ll need to be aware that there’s such a thing as vaping etiquette. So when you’re out and about and want to vape, think of others and vape wisely. Then you’ll be all set to enjoy your vape gear and the exciting e-liquids, exploring great new flavours along the way.
