increasing atomizer lifespan

When considering ways to save money when it comes to your vaping experience, what many people may not realize is that there are many different techniques that you can implement to help different parts of your vaporizer last longer so you don’t have to replace them as often. One of the parts that you have to replace the most frequently is the atomizer. Below are some good ways to lengthen the life of your atomizer.


Find a new eLiquid


One of the simplest ways to extend the life of your atomizer is to simply use a different juice that is better for your device. Buying the cheapest e Liquid could end up costing you more money in the end, so it’s better to get the higher quality juice for a little more rather than spending the money to replace entire parts. If the eLiquid you’re using is high in vegetable glycerin, it can clog the atomizer and make it less effective. Look for alternatives like juices that have more propylene glycol, which doesn’t affect the atomizer as much.


Lower the Voltage


Another fairly easy way to extend the life of your atomizer is to keep the voltage lower for regular usage. Consistently staying at a voltage level that is around or under 3.7 volts will help to preserve your atomizer. You can adjust your voltage for certain situations if needed.


Soak in Hot Water


Soaking your atomizer in water can help remove old eLiquid and other buildup within your atomizer. The best way to do this is to simply fill a bowl with hot water and then gently place your atomizer in the water and soak for approximately 30 minutes. Be careful not to burn yourself when placing is in the water. After taking it out of the water, make sure to lightly shake it to remove any excess water, and then let it sit to dry for several hours. Ideally after the atomizer is soaked, it won’t be used again until the next day.


Soak in Vodka


Not only can you soak the atomizer in water, you can soak it in vodka. This will help to break up and oxidation that has occurred within the atomizer. It should be allowed to soak for around an hour, thoroughly rinsed, and then set to dry overnight before it is used again.


Drain the Atomizer


It sounds pretty self-explanatory, but basically what you do is you take the atomizer out and set it out to drain with the brass side up. The liquid will slowly be removed from inside the cylinder of the atomizer. Since it will be dry after this, it’s important to use caution when using it after you drain it, so you don’t take a dry hit.


Overall, these are some of the easiest ways of increasing atomizer lifespan for your vaporizer. The biggest thing to remember is to just take care of your tools and don’t attempt to do things you don’t know how to do. It could end up messing up the parts more, so take the time to ask someone who is experienced with the questions you need answered.
