Troubleshooting Vape Tanks | Everything You Need to Know

I am sure you will agree with me that there is nothing as frustrating as having your vaping session derailed because your vape tank is faulty or won’t work normally. Even the most experienced vapers have had to deal with the problem of a faulty  vape tank at least once in their lives. In this article, we will focus on the most common vape tank issues and how you can effortlessly eliminate them. We will also give you some maintenance and troubleshooting tips to ensure that your vape tank remains in good shape. Read on to learn how you can have out of this world vaping experiences by maintaining and keeping your vape tank in good order!       

Vape Tank Leakage

This is one of the most common problems in vape tanks. Leakages can be caused by a number of reasons, ranging from your tank being overfilled to devices being poorly put together. To determine the cause for the leakage, it is critical that you do some troubleshooting:

  • Are the O-rings and seals placed correctly and are they in good condition? A cracked or missing seal can give you a hell of a time as you try to use your device for vaping. It is therefore critical that you examine all the seals to ensure that none of them is loose, damaged or missing. It is cheaper to fix or replace these seals as compared to the pain you would have to go through if your vape tank was to start leaking during a vaping session!
  • Is everything properly assembled? If everything is not correctly screwed on, then your tank is bound to start leaking. This problem can be easily rectified. Check the connections and re-screw the pieces.

You should also examine and confirm that your tank does not have any cracks. If you spot any crack on the tube, you will have to replace it as soon as possible.

Not Enough Throat Hit

If you are not getting enough of a throat hit, then you might want to check on the PG/VG ratio of your vape juice. The higher the PG level, then the better the throat hit. Using juices with higher nicotine content can also boost the burning sensation in your throat. If you are sure that it is not the juice causing the problem, then you might want to upgrade to a more advanced vaping device that will allow you to personalize or customize your vaping experience. 

Not Enough Production of Vapor

You will probably be bothered by low vapor production, especially if you are a cloud chaser. Low vapor production may be as a result of low VG concentration in the e-liquid, or also because of a technical problem. One of the most common technical problems is a low battery capacity. Please note that most of the modern vaporizers come with battery indicators that allow you to know when your battery is running low. If you notice that your vapor production has suddenly subsided, you might want to recharge your battery to see whether or not that helps. 

If that doesn’t help, examine the vape tank to ensure that the atomizer coil is not dry and that the atomizer is not flooded. Also ensure that the connection between the battery and the atomizer is in good order. Try and clean off any grime or dust that may have built up over time.                                               

Battery Not Working Properly

If your battery keeps cutting off or refuses to work completely, it is necessary to confirm that the battery has enough charge. Also, ensure that you are using the right charger and check to see if all the connections are working correctly. It is also essential that you keep your battery connections clean. Check to ensure that the charging ports are clear of any debris or any dried up liquid. If none of these solutions seem to be working, then it may be time you paid a visit to your trusted vape shop for a battery replacement!

Gurgling Sounds

Do you hear some gurgling sounds coming from your vaporizer during a vaping session? Well, this could mean that you have overfilled your tank or too much liquid has gotten into the atomizer. It is easy to fix this problem, as you just need to eliminate the excess liquid and clean out your tank.

In Conclusion

As you can see, some of these problems are easy to fix and may not even require any specialized skills. It is important that you take proper care of your device to ensure that it lasts a long time. Remember that vaping is meant to be fun, so don’t let some simple issues that can be easily eliminated stand in your way!

However, if you come across any issue that you can’t handle on your own, it is important that you look for a qualified professional who will easily fix your device for you.
