10 Amazing Vaping Hacks You Need to Know About
It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned vaper or someone buying their first-time vape kit. There are always new things to learn, cool tricks to practice, and interesting tips to try.
Vaping tips are the best way to learn something new that will help you in small but meaningful ways.
Our vape hacks will help you take care of the everyday things you already do, but better. This list is full of ideas that make things easier and free up a lot of valuable vaping time for you to enjoy.
1. Clean a Copper Mod With Ketchup
This hack might sound a bit strange at first glance but stay with us. There's a method to the madness.
There's a natural acidity to ketchup that is great for renewing tarnished copper. It's strong enough to clean the metal but gentle enough to not cause any damage to the delicate bits. It's a tried and true method that is now used by the vaping community.
If you're still a little worried about using ketchup, vinegar or lemon juice also can do the trick.
2. Bring Hand Sanitizer With You Everywhere
It's inevitable that the e-juices we all love will end up spilling onto our hands. A little bit on the skin can cause a greasy or sticky feeling that isn't at all pleasant.
If you're at home, it's not a problem. But on the go, it's more difficult to find a sink and some soap.
Hand sanitizer is the perfect way to combat this issue. The alcohol in the sanitizer cuts through the oils of the e-juice, leaving your hands feeling fresh and clean. Don't leave home without your own portable bottle.
3. Use Cosmetic Bags for Organization
Vaping can lead to several little odds and ends that you need to keep track of. Getting a cosmetic bag is a great way to keep all of those things in one place.
The variety of pockets and elastics that make up these bags are the right size for most vaping gear. Plus, having everything in a bag like this makes it easy to take with you, such as to a vaping competition.
It doesn't have to be a true cosmetic bag, either. Any kind of bag with a lot of organized pockets makes for the perfect vaping companion.
4. Turn Coin Holders into Battery Holders
Storing batteries is something we all need to take into consideration. Plastic coin holders are the right size for most batteries used in vaping devices. It provides a protective shell while still remaining in easy access.
And, in the case of leaks or other problems, your belongings will be safe from harm.
5. Lego Blocks for Atomizers
The little bumps that help connect Lego blocks together are also the right size for a lot of atomizers. We can use that to our advantage to make a DIY atomizer holder.
Using a standard Lego block is enough to hold up to 6 atomizers in place. Or, you can go for something more elaborate and make yourself an atomizer stand in any shape or configuration that you want.
6. Make Your Own Vape Bands
Vape bands are nice, but they can be expensive at times. Instead of buying a vape band, there's an easy way to make your own.
Cut up a single bike handle grip into varying thicknesses to make a vape band that will fit right on your device. You can even make multiple bands out of the same grip.
They come in a variety of different colors and sizes so that you can mix and match for all of your devices.
7. Keep Nail Clippers Nearby
If you're looking for a portable addition to your vaping kit, then look no farther. Nail clippers are something every vape-loving person should have with them.
They're small enough to do some detail work, such as cutting wicks to size, but they're strong at the same time. With nail clippers available to you, you won't need to worry about bringing around scissors everywhere.
Plus, they offer duo-function as both a nail clipper and as a vape scissor substitute.
8. Restore Uneven Coils
Sometimes we get coils that heat up more in one spot, rather than having an even heat throughout. If this is the case, you can help restore that even heating by scraping at the coil with a screwdriver.
You don't want to do it too hard. A gentle scratching can be enough to trigger the change in the coil's reaction.
Don't forget to ensure all of your tools are clean before trying this hack. Otherwise, you may transfer unwanted oils and grime to your coil.
9. Mesh Strainers For Tank Cleaning
When it comes time to clean your tanks, you'll want to use some hot water to get a thorough cleaning. But if you're holding the tank in your hands, there is a limit to how hot the water can get before you burn yourself.
A metal mesh strainer can make this process easier. By placing the tank into the basket, it allows you to use hotter water than you would achieve with your hands. This makes certain that your tank is getting the proper cleaning it needs.
10. Use Magnets to Hold Tiny Screws
When customizing your vaping gear, chances are good that you'll have to keep track of several small screws. They're easy to drop and easy to misplace.
If you have a magnetic strip nearby, you can place the screws on that instead of a table. The magnet will keep them from falling to the floor and you can get on with your work. The magnet can also double as a cleanup tool for any small bits of metal you might clip off.
Because you'll be working with such small items, the magnet doesn't have to be large to get the job done.
As always, make sure to keep magnets away from any electronics.
