Where Should I Store My Vape?

Your vape device should be stored in a cool, dry place at room temperature.

Correctly storing your vape can increase the longevity of the device. Although today's devices such as the Aspire Gotek X are robust, additional steps can be taken to protect your device.

Stand your device upright

A few problems can occur if this step isn't taken. Leaving your device on its side can lead to it leaking, which can cause a blockage from the build-up of liquid. Dust and dirt are more likely to enter your device if not stored upright; this can cause complications for the device.

Storing at room temperature away from direct sunlight

It is best to store your device away from extreme temperatures as it can cause issues with the components within the vape. This goes as far as keeping it away from anything projecting heat, such as radiators.

Vape cartridge storage

Even in their original packaging, vape cartridges are susceptible to the environment. You will want to keep your vape cartridges in the best condition as, while they can last up to 18 months, that duration would be dramatically cut short if stored in poor conditions.

You should find a place without direct sunlight when storing vape cartridges.

When doing so, make sure to keep your cartridges upright. This is important because you don’t want to back up a cartridge by accidentally pre-soaking the wick.

Keep your device away from moisture

It is vital to keep your device in a dry environment as any moisture entering the components of the device can significantly affect how the electronics powering the device work. It can also become a safety issue if the device gets wet, meaning it will not be safe to use. It is essential to keep the device out of any room, such as a bathroom or by any source of water such as kitchen taps to keep it out of harm's way.

How Do You Store A Vape Without Using It?

Make sure your vape device is kept out of direct sunlight at room temperature in a cool and dry place.

Following a few simple tips, you can store a vape when not in use. It would be best if you were looking to store your vape and spare cartridges in a place without direct sunlight. Many components in a vape cartridge degrade under direct sunlight. Make sure your device is kept in a room temperature environment as heat can cause deterioration to your device. Keep it away from radiators, cookers or anything else that can heat up when used.

It is also imperative to store your vape and cartridges away from moisture. If your device lets in any moisture, it can cause damage to the device's components. If the cartridge comes in contact with moisture, It can pre-soak the wick, deeming it no good.

Storing your device and cartridges upright is essential in keeping them in the best condition. Storing them vertically can cause dust and dirt to easily enter and cause a blockage, potentially damaging the device. It also lowers the risk of letting any moisture affect the inside components.

Having a safe place to store your vape and any accessories will keep your vape performing at its maximum capability and extend its lifespan for as long as possible.
