How to clean a vape clearomizer August 05 2014, 0 Comments
Instead of spending the money to buy a new clearomizer for your e-cigarette to replace your old one, why not clean it instead? Cleaning your clearomizer can help extend it's life by several weeks! Here's how:
1. Get rid of any remaining e-liquid
Remove the end of your clearomizer in the same way that you would if you were refilling it with e-liquid. Fill the tank about halfway with warm water, cover the opening with your thumb, and shake vigorously for a few second. Dump the water out. The water should be discolored. Repeat the process until the water that you dump out is clear. This means that your tank is free of any excess e-liquid that got stuck in the tank. If you've experienced "flavor ghosting", meaning that you can still taste the old flavors even when vaping a new one, this will help tremendously.
2. Dry off the clearomizer
Blow into the clearomizer to remove any water or condensation. Get rid of as much water as you can with this method, then let it air dry if there's any residual moisture that you can't get rid of.
3. Reassemble the clearomizer (minus the drip tip) and put it back onto your vaporizer
4. Clean the coil by "dry burning"
Heat the coil in quick 2 second long bursts. The coil will start glowing orange, and you'll see vapor forming from the residual gunk that is on the coil. Blow away the vapor without directly blowing onto the coil, which can cause damage. When it starts glowing a bright orange you'll know that any e-juice gunk has been removed. Let it cool down and blow on it one last time and you'll be good to go!
