For the last twenty years or so, vaping has been pretty popular, but it’s become far more mainstream in recent years. Not only are people turning to rechargeable vapes to curb their smoking habit, but some people have taken up vaping who have never smoked a single cigarette in their life.
Whether you’re vaping recreationally or you’re on a mission to kick your tobacco addiction, here’s how you can get the most out of your vape.
1. Go with a rechargeable pod system
Getting the most out of your vape begins with spending less money when possible, but also getting a better quality product. You don’t want to end up with something cheap that tastes bad and is barely tolerable. You also don’t need to spend a fortune on high-end luxury brands to get a good vaping experience.
The average vape user will spend between $1,000 and $1,500 per year on vaping supplies, and although you can find low-end cheap disposable vapes, they aren’t as good as a rechargeable system. When you use a rechargeable vape, you can just plug it in when the battery gets low and be up and running fast. You won’t have to go to the store or otherwise disrupt your day.
Rechargeable systems, like the pod systems made by Lost Mary, also come with disposable pods that contain the e-juice, which is super convenient because you can switch up your flavor each time you refill. Sealed pods are easy to use and don’t require you to take your vape apart, unlike some vapes from the past.
2. Be intentional when you puff
It’s easy to mindlessly wander around puffing on your vape, but this will only deplete your e-juice fast. If your vapes aren’t lasting as long as you’d like, and you’re already using high-capacity pods, then try cutting back on how much you vape. You probably don’t need to pull it out of your pocket and take a few puffs every 20 minutes. The more intentional you are, the more juice you can preserve for when you really need it – like on your break at work.
3. Choose long-lasting pods
One of the most obvious ways to get more out of your vape is to buy pods that last for a while. For every 2mL of e-liquid, you’ll get about 600 puffs. Pods come in a variety of sizes, so you have a lot of control over how long one pod will last.
The average pod will give you between 200 and 300 puffs, but you can get higher capacity pods that go as high as 5mL, which is around 1,500 puffs. What’s available to you depends on the brand of your vape because not all manufacturers make larger pods.
4. Take good care of your vape
Lithium-ion batteries have been known to explode in a variety of devices when they become overheated, and that includes vapes. It’s a good idea to keep your vape in a cool place where it won’t be exposed to heat. For example, never leave your vape on the dash of your vehicle, where it will be exposed to the sun because it’s a fire hazard. It’s always hotter inside a car than outside, so with the doors and windows shut on a sunny day, your vape could explode.
If you use a rechargeable vape, don’t leave it plugged in overnight. This family found out the hard way that charging a vape for too long can cause it to overheat and start a fire.
5. Don’t chain vape
If you chain vape too much, you can cause your device to overheat, which will drain the liquid faster. You’ll burn more liquid for each puff and before you know it, your vape will be empty.
Avoid chain vaping and limit the amount of puffs you take in a short amount of time. If you feel your device heating up, give it a rest and wait for it to cool down.
Extend the life of your vape and pods
Ultimately, there are only two factors that contribute to the lifespan of your vape and e-liquid: your product and how you use it. To make your vape last longer, take good care of it, and don’t be careless.
To make your pods last longer, be intentional when puffing and start with a good quality brand of e-liquid. It really is that simple.
