Leave your vaping device standing upright when not in use. If none of that worked: Your vaping style may be more suited to a different tank; or you might be vaping a high PG liquid that is unsuited to the style of tank and coil that you’re using. Talk to us about which of our wide range of atomisers might work better for you. Problem 7: My OLED screen is blank and won’t turn on. Certain mods have an option within the menu to allow you to vape in ‘stealth mode’ without the screen lighting up.
If your mod has this option, click the fire button 3 times to enter the menu and turn stealth mode off. Check to see if there is a firmware update available for your mod. If the mod is still within warranty (and you bought it from us), you can either choose to complete our returns form online, or get in touch to discuss a replacement. Store your e-liquid bottles in a cool, dark, dry environment. Think about how long the vape juice has been sitting in the tank - exposure to heat, UV and oxygen can cause e-liquid to darken over time. Check what nicotine strength your e-liquid is - higher nicotine levels will oxidise faster and cause your vape liquid to darken more quickly. Make sure your tank is nice and clean - any residue of old e-liquid can affect the new juice in the tank. Check to see if the coil needs replacing (if it does, make sure you always follow our coil priming guide).. Vape juice will darken over time, regardless of environment.
Also, e-liquid that contains freebase nicotine has a shorter shelf life than nic salt based liquid due to the effects of oxidation. Problem 9: I’m getting a dry hit / burnt taste when I vape. Coils don’t last forever, and when they wear out, they can deliver an unpleasant burnt taste. How often they need replacing depends on a number of factors (find out more in our guide). If you’ve recently replaced the coil, make sure you primed it properly.. If you’ve recently primed the coil, make sure you’ve left enough time for the e-liquid to completely saturate the cotton wicking material before taking a hit. Check that your tank contains enough e-liquid to cover the airflow holes in the coil to avoid the coil drying out. If none of that worked: It’s possible that you’re taking too many puffs in quick succession which means that the coil doesn’t have enough time to wick new liquid through before you take the next hit. Alternatively, check if your tank has an option for a coil with larger airflow holes to allow more vape juice into the coil. Problem 10: I’m getting a dry / sore throat when I vape. Check the VG/PG ratio of your e-liquid - VG is the ingredient that produces the big clouds so, if you’re not satisfied with your vapour production, you should consider switching to a vape juice with a high VG content. Reduce the number of puffs you take in quick succession. Make sure there is enough e-liquid in your tank so you’re not getting a dry hit. If none of that worked: You might want to consider switching to a higher VG e-liquid as PG delivers a stronger throat hit and can be responsible for a dry throat feeling. Another point to consider is how long ago you stopped smoking cigarettes. Smoking cessation is a form of withdrawal, and one of the symptoms is a sore throat. Problem 11: I’m not getting big enough clouds from my vape. Check the VG/PG ratio of your e-liquid - VG is the ingredient that produces the big clouds so, if you’re not satisfied with your vapour production, you should consider switching to a vape juice with a high VG content. Make sure your vaping device isn’t in need of recharging. Check that the coil isn’t dry and doesn’t need replacing (if it does, make sure you always follow our coil priming guide). Clean any dust or e-liquid build up from the connections using a cotton bud. If none of that worked: It might be time for you to upgrade to a more powerful device: more power = bigger clouds. We stock a wide range of high wattage mods for a cloud chasing vaping experience. Problem 12: I’m not getting enough of a throat hit from my vape. Check the VG/PG ratio of your e-liquid - PG is the ingredient that provides throat hit so, if you’re not satisfied, you may want to switch to a higher PG vape juice. Check the nicotine strength of your e-liquid - the more freebase nicotine, the stronger the throat hit. Consider the flavour of your e-liquid - menthol and citrus flavours deliver more of a throat hit than their sweeter counterparts.
If none of that worked: It might be time for you to upgrade to a device that offers you more control over power, airflow, and temperature. We stock a wide range of variable wattage mods for a completely customisable vaping experience. Problem 13: I’m getting too much of a throat hit from my vape. Check the VG/PG ratio of your e-liquid - VG is the ingredient that delivers a smoother vape, whereas PG is responsible for throat hit.Switching to a higher VG vape juice may improve your experience. Check the nicotine strength of your e-liquid - the more freebase nicotine, the stronger the throat hit. Reducing the nicotine strength of your vape juice could be the answer. Alternatively, if you’re not ready to reduce the nicotine strength, you might want to consider switching to a nicotine salt based e-liquid. With nicotine salts, you can maintain a very high nicotine dose without a harsh throat hit. Consider the flavour of your e-liquid - menthol and citrus flavours deliver the most throat hit, so you might want to try some of the sweet flavours on offer.
Problem 14: I’m not getting enough of a nicotine hit from my vape. Consider the nicotine strength of your e-liquid - most traditional e-liquids contain freebase nicotine which delivers nicotine into the blood more slowly than cigarettes.
