Electronic cigarettes are considered as a healthier alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. They can also be used as a way to give up smoking completely. They are designed to look like a traditional cigarette but vaporizes liquid nicotine so that it can be inhaled just like the smoke of regular cigarettes. If you have already bought your electronic cigarettes, one of the most important things that you need to know would be how to clean them. Here is a guide that should be able to help you out.
1. First, using a lint-free cloth, clean around the area which connects the battery to the atomizer. Never use water or any other type of cleaning fluid. Make sure that there would be no particles left behind from the cloth, as they might accidentally enter the heating-coil housing.
2. You should then drain any buildup of liquid in the electronic cigarette which may have seeped out from the cartridge to the atomizer. There are three ways on how you can do this. First, you remove the mouthpiece, which would leave the battery attached. You should then gently blow air into the battery at the end with the LED which would activate the battery. This would cause any liquid buildup to be vaporized.
3. You could also drain any excess liquid through first removing the mouthpiece and the battery. Blow air in the hole which connects the battery to the atomizer. Doing this would help in clearing the liquid from the heating coil. You should then tap the atomizer lightly on a cloth after each third breath. Do this until you cannot hear any more gurgling sounds. Stand the atomizer up on a piece of clean cloth so you can drain any additional liquid. 4. Lastly, you can drain the liquid by disassembling the unit and placing the atomizer on a piece of clean cloth. Make sure that the side of the battery connection is facing up. Allow it to drain overnight.
