Does your Vape Tank have Bad Odour?
Most of us who have been vaping for a substantial amount of time come across this strange problem, a foul-smelling vape tank. So, don’t worry it’s not you and you’re not alone. And chances are if your vape tank smells bad your e-Juice is probably not tasting very good either.
This can be a serious problem for a number of reasons. Firstly, you are inhaling e-Liquid into your lungs. For that reason, it is very important that these chemicals you are ingesting are not harmful to your health. And they can be. Therefore, not only is your vaping experience unpleasant, but it’s also dangerous. So, let’s look at a few reasons why your vape tank might have bad odour and what you can do about it.
Why does my Vape Tank have Bad Odour?
The most prevalent reason for having a fouling smelling tank is the fact that you are simply not cleaning it. Some people do not realize that you need to keep your Mod clean in order for it to vaporize e-Liquid efficiently. A lack of cleanliness can lead to bacteria, gunk or other issues. Old e-Juice in your tank that sits too long will become thick and stale and will not vaporize. So, if you’re just adding new juice on top of the old juice you are adding fuel to the foul odour fire.
The mouthpiece is also a very important part of your rig. It needs to be kept clean. The eJuice that makes its way into the mouthpiece can no longer be vaporized, as it is no longer being heating up by your atomizer. Moreover, your mouth has bacteria. Drool can make its way into the mouthpiece. This will breed bacteria which in turn will cause bad odour.
Your eJuice Might Be the Problem
The eJuice you vape may also be the culprit in the case of the vape tank odour scandal. If you use low quality or cheap eJuices, your tank has a substandard liquid that you are vaporizing. This should be self-evident. For example, if you’re purchasing low quality, mass produced eJuice from China, you really have no clue what you’re burning. Some additives and dangerous chemicals may be present that do not thoroughly burn or may even create chemical reactions. These particles can remain or stay within the tank. They then go bad and create foul odours.
Even if you vape quality juice you still need routine cleaning. One mistake some people make is pouring a new flavour on top of an old flavour. This can also lead to strange or unpleasant odours. When changing eJuice flavours it is always recommended to give your tank a good cleaning and start off fresh. This will give you a clean and fresh start. It will also maximize the flavour and odour of your new juice, thereby improving your overall experience.
What Can I do to Prevent Foul Odour?
The two best things you can do to avoid foul odour are use quality eJuices and clean regularly. The standard cleaning schedule recommendation is to clean about once a week. And as stated, you should clean when switching up flavours. Of course, the better the quality ingredients in your vape juice, the less likely you are to have these problems.
Also, know your tank. That means to research what eJuice vapes best for your rig. Your coils may burn at too high a temperature and cause burning and nasty chemical reactions. And remember old juice gets gunky and goes bad. It’s that simple.
What you need to do is take your rig apart and soak the parts in rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will sterilize your Mod and deodorize it at the same time. If your tank has gunk use cotton swabs and rubs off any remaining residue. A clean rig will optimize flavour, vapour and ultimately your enjoyment. The rule of thumb with all electronic equipment is maintenance and knowledge. Read the instructions and manuals when you buy a vape tank. These few simple steps will rectify your stinky little problem. Have a great and odour-free day my vaping friends.
