Do's And Don'ts For Vapers
Do you know the unwritten vaper rules? For starters, you have to be aware of the different vaping laws where you plan to vape. You also have to be mindful of how aggressive you're using your device or what are the key maintenance steps to keep it in its best condition, etc.
Knowing these simple do's and don'ts, it will make your experience better, safer, and happier. Whether you're new to vaping or an experienced vaper, you'll enjoy it more when you follow these simple rules.
In this guide:
Do's for Vapers
1. Keep It Clean
Clean vape devices work better. If you're getting harsh hits or producing a vapor that smells terrible, check your device and your coils. Even refillable pod mods can be cleaned for better performance. Use our tips to clean your devices so they'll work better and last longer.
2. Get Permission Before You Get Fired Up
Although most people don't object to vape clouds, there are always exceptions. Some people don't allow cigarettes but do allow vapes. Others object to anything even vaguely related to smoking. Respect their wishes.
3. Observe Smoking Rules
If you can't smoke there, you probably can't vape there. Most public places have posted signs about where you can use tobacco products, and they include vapes in that.
4. Control Your Clouds
You may enjoy billowing, flavored clouds, but people in public may find them obnoxious. Don't throw out the rules of good manners with your analog cigs. When you're in restaurants, offices, or other indoor places, keep the clouds under control. In these cases, a vape pod kit or pod mod might be a good alternative.
5. Store Liquid Safely
Keep your vape liquid in a cool, dark spot to preserve its flavor. You can even keep juices in the fridge. Most juices have a long shelf life, but keeping them stored properly will keep the flavor fresh.
6. Know the Different Styles
Are you a mouth-to-lung (MTL) or direct-to-lung (DTL) vaper? If you're a former smoker, you probably prefer the MTL style which is most like smoking. However, you won't know what you prefer until you try both kinds. Some devices have adjustable airflows that let you check out both types.
7. Go Ahead and Stealth Vape
We all know you're going to, so just relax and enjoy your secret vape hits. Many people stealth vape at work or in other “smoke-free” environments. Use a pod mod or a mini vape to prevent getting caught.
Don'ts for Vapers
1. Don't Leave Your Device in the Sun
Sun, wind, and water can all damage your device. If you're taking your vape out in bad weather or to the beach, protect it. Carry it in your pocket or a protective case. If you carry a purse, get a small makeup bag to carry your vape supplies.
2. Don't Charge It Overnight
Overcharging your device or external battery can fry its delicate components. Always charge it with the charging cord that came with it, and don't charge it out of your sight. Most devices and batteries don't take that long to get a full charge.
3. Don't Charge It with Your Laptop or Phone
For the same reason, don't use your laptop or phone charger to power your vape device. If the cable malfunctions, you can destroy your laptop or computer. Use a dedicated charging cord to plug your device directly into the wall.
4. Don't Vape Around Children
No, it's not smoking, but it can be equally inappropriate. Many people don't want their children exposed to adult activities. They also don't want to glamorize the use of vapes. If you have children, vape outside or when they're not around.
5. Keep Your Supplies Safe from Kids and Pets
If you're like most vapers who use juice with nicotine, use care when storing liquid. Nicotine in concentrated doses is toxic, and you don't want children or pets getting into it. Sweet, bakery-flavored juices can be tempting to little hands and paws, so keep the liquids where they can't reach them. Similarly, don't let them play with your devices.
6. Don't Forget Common Sense and Courtesy
It all comes down to common sense and common courtesy. Always check with the people around you before you start up your device. If you're going to stealth vape, use a small device or disposable, and don't get caught.
In a nutshell, be a responsible vaper. Make sure to always clean your device, keep it safe, and store your liquids appropriately. Never vape in private places that ban vapes, like movie theaters or buses. If you're going to stealth vape somewhere where it's not allowed, do so with a small device. Most importantly, don't forget the common sense and courtesy guidelines for public vaping.
