Most of us invest quite a bit of money in our electronic cigarettes and it can very vexing if the device stops working. There are a few simple checks that you can perform to make sure your ecig is working to its fullest capacity and that it is producing the kind of vaping experience that you have paid for. Essentially, the ecig itself is going to be producing smooth nicotine as well as non-nicotine vapor. If your ecig fails to do this right, this could be sure indication that something is wrong and that you need to open up the device and fix it.

Of course, the general goal of all e-cigs is to quit smoking cigarettes.  Right?

An electronic cigarette battery

Generally ecigs do encounter problems after a period of intense use and some parts may need to be replaced or fixed occasionally. Often the issue can be quite small and you won’t have to buy an entirely new starter kit. If you are sure your ecig isn’t performing up to the mark, the first thing you should do is screw on the battery contacts tighter. Also buy new batteries if your old ones are simply past their use by date. Secondly blow into the cartridge after separating it from the device. This will remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated in the device. Check the atomizer as well because it is a hub for dirt to gather up and clog the ecig.

Another check up that can be easily performed is to see if the LED light which is present in most ecigs is lighting up or not. If it is dim, then that can be an indication of an underlying mechanical problem. You will find that tapping the battery is also useful and if you are still not sure then you can inhale on the device harder and see if it is lighting up better or not. Atomizers are specifically important to the performance of an ecig so replace yours in a timely fashion to enhance the life of your ecig.
