Turning your vape pen on - it's a no brainier!

If your vape pen isn't working, chances are you haven't turned it on correctly.

Yes, many people forget to press the button 5 times quickly to turn their vape pen on/ off. A flash of light usually accompanies vape pen on/off action to indicate that it's been turned on. Once your vape pen has been turned on, there are two different ways you could activate the batteries.

1. Inhale activation
2. Button activation

if you have an inhale-activated battery, all you have to do is take a draw from the mouthpiece and let the magic happen!

Conversely, if your vape pen is button activated, simply hold down the button as you draw from the mouthpiece of your cartridge. It's that simple. So before you throw out that vape pen thinking it's broken, make sure you've turned it on correctly, and use it the right way.

Note that: most vape batteries will stop working after 10-12 seconds of non-stop activation, and it's a safety feature for you and your vapes battery.

4 tips on using your vape pen like a pro

We know it can be a bit tricky to get the hang of using your vape pen--maybe you're not getting much vapor, or perhaps you're getting too much of it. Either way, we've come up with 4 tips to help get you on your way to vaping like a pro!

1. Use the right size cartridge for your battery

Most vape pens use a standard-size battery called a 510-threaded battery. It means that, no matter what cartridge you have, it should screw right into your battery without any issues. However, if you have problems, it's most likely because your cartridge isn't the right size for the battery. Check it and make sure you're using cartridges that are the perfect size for your battery so you can get the most out of your vape pen!

2. Top-airflow vs. Bottom-airflow cartridges

Your cartridge should have proper airflow so you can get everything out of it without getting any nasty clogs. The proper airflow is essential for a vape because if there's not enough airflow coming in through the bottom, you won't be able to draw in any air at all from the mouthpiece.

If your vape isn't producing much vapor, or if it's producing too intense vapor, you might have an airflow problem.

The location of your vapes air hole will tell you what type of airflow it uses. If you're using a top-airflow cartridge, there must be an air hole at the middle of its bottom. If you're using a bottom-airflow cartridge, there should be small holes near the mouthpiece, letting air flow freely through them without touching anything else in the tank.

3. Charging your battery

Vapes are either charged with a micro usb charger or come with a vape pen charger that plugs into a regular outlet (like an iphone charger). If you're unsure which kind of charger to use, use the same cord your battery came with--it's usually in your vaporizer package. Always insert the plug with care.

Most vapes take between 2 to 4 hours to fully charge; do not leave them charging overnight, as this will slowly compromise the batteries life.

4. Care for your battery

A little bit of care goes a long way when it comes to cleaning your vape pen.

It will help if you clean your vape after each session with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean out any residue from your vaping material. You may also want to clean out the inside of your thc vape cartridge if you're using one with your vape pen.

Last words

vape pens are all the rage these days, especially for smokers looking to quit. But for those who haven't used a vape pen before they might find it a bit confusing to use. Vape pens are a great alternative to traditional smoking, and they offer a cleaner taste and a more enjoyable experience. Hopefully, the above-mentioned tips have given you the know-how to use your vape pen correctly.

However, if you want to make sure that your vape pen lasts as long as possible, it's essential to care for it properly. With proper care, you'll enjoy your vape pen for years to come.
