Unlike tobacco cigarettes that are ‘one use’, so to speak, electronic cigarettes are designed to be used time and time again, and for this reason, when purchasing a vape device many simply assume that it will last forever. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, especially if you invested in a poor quality vape device or your vape on a frequent basis, and it is likely that after some time, you will need to replace your device.
It is fair to say that even the most expensive devices won’t last forever and even if you upgrade different parts of the vape hardware every now and then, you will probably need a complete replacement eventually. Often, there are some clear signs that it is time for a new vape device and thankfully, these aren’t hard to miss. If you’re wondering whether you’d benefit from an upgrade, below we listed some of the most obvious signs to look out for.
The vaping experience isn’t up to par
Ultimately, if you’re not enjoying using your vape because your device is making it a chore for you, then now is the perfect time for you to buy a new device. Vaping should be quite effortless and if you’re struggling to get to grips with your device or you don’t really like the way it works, then you’re best off just investing in something new. Everyone’s preferences will be different in this regard, but try to find a device that’s able to provide the vaping experience you’d hoped for.
Your vaping habits have changed
Sometimes, you will find that if you purchased a simple starter kit to help you give up tobacco cigarettes, over time your habits and needs will change, so you may need a new device. If you’re vaping more than you used to or you’d like to try something like ‘cloud chasing’, then a more powerful device will likely be required. Your device needs to be suitable for your individual vaping method and habits, so if this isn’t the case, then an upgrade is best.
The device has a really short battery life
Having to frequently charge your vape device can be really frustrating and whilst purchasing a new battery will be able to help for a while, you may find that a new device is a better solution. Some more modern devices are able to hold bigger batteries and generally have a longer battery life, and it is likely that these will be more suitable for you if you’re fed up with your vape always running out of charge when you need it most.
You can’t get rid of a ‘strange’ taste
Every now and then your vape might start to taste a little bit strange, this can sometimes be a burnt taste, a dull taste, a stale taste or just generally a bit of an odd taste. Whilst you may find that giving your vape tank a good clean, replacing your coil or swapping vape juice flavour is able to help this, if you’ve tried everything that’s been recommended and it still tastes strange, then it’s probably time to buy a new vape device.
The vape device is constantly leaking
There is nothing more annoying than your vape device leaking e-liquid all over the inside of your bag or your pocket, and whilst leaking can be caused by lots of different things, you may need a new device. If you have taken the device apart, inspected the parts, cleaned everything and put it back together again, but you can’t see an obvious source of the leak, then a replacement is a good idea. A leaking vape isn’t just annoying, it can be dangerous too, so don’t overlook this.
Visiting a vape shop
All in all, if you notice any of the signs mentioned above, then you should probably replace your current device and when doing so, your vaping experience will greatly improve. Of course, depending on the brand and model of the device you purchase, some will last longer than others, but generally speaking, it is likely that you will need to buy a new vape device at some point during your time of vaping.
