Basic Cartomizer Troubleshooting

plattank-300x300Issues with your vape pen can be annoying and frustrating, and spending your precious time trying to get problems resolved can be a major waste of your time. So the keep reading for some helpful tips to guide you along with getting things fixed in a timely manner, because often times issues can be resolved simply, and without needing a support team.

-There’s no vapor yet the battery is charged and the cartomizer is screwed on.

-Often times this is the result of a collapsed center pin, which happens when your cartomizer is screwed on too tightly. When screwing the cartomizer on, gentle and firm is good; don’t apply too much pressure and over-tighten.

-Got a clearomizer leaking from the bottom of the unit?

-Different things can cause a clearomizer to leak, among them include being overfilled with liquid, liquid having been poured into the wrong part of the center tube, and the connection to the battery is bad. If you take a hit and there is gurgling, the fix to the problem is quick. Blow through the clearomizer from the mouthpiece, using a paper towel to catch the liquid that will come out of the air tube.

-The cartomizer is leaking, even though it is screwed on properly and the leak seems to be coming from within the glass portion of the unit.

-In this case, it may very well be that the cartomizer is on its way out. Repeated use with it being too tight can cause this. It can also be from a crack in the glass due to pressure, or even from trauma during shipping. Replace it.

-Cartomizer is filled but not functioning right; allows very little hit, barely any vapor comes out, and some liquid squirts out.

-This is most likely a case of the cartomizer being over-filled and the excess liquid is causing the malfunction. You will need to clean the connection point of the battery, using a tissue and/ or q-tip. When there is no more liquid on the external parts, try taking a hit to see if it functions right.

Vaping troubleshooting is big, because many times what seems to be a big problem, in actuality is a small one that you can take care of on your own. Being able to fix a vaporizer problem yourself comes with the benefit of giving you a better understanding of how your device works internally, and it can give you a better view on how to get the best performance from it on a regular basis. The more you know, the better it goes!

Automatic or Manual: Battery Switches

ex-blankWhen it comes to e-cigarette batteries, you’ve got a world of choices. One of those is automatic or manual switch style, which believe it or not, comes down to much more than just how your e-cigarette gets powered. The switch style has a great effect on the overall performance of the device, so before choosing, you should have a good idea about how each works, and what kind of performance you can expect from them. So if you’re wanting to know about the differences, we’ve got the info you need!

Automatic E-Cig Batteries

With automatic electronic cigarette batteries, the heating element becomes engaged when the user takes a drag. The on/ off switch is built in, and it gets activated upon the puff. This style is very popular because it more closely resembles the look and feel of a traditional cigarette.

Pros & Cons to Consider:


  • User-friendly, these batteries are the closest thing to a traditional cigarette that an e-smoker is going to get.
  • Long battery life; automatic batteries have a great ability to last between charges.
  • The styling of these batteries looks incredibly similar to traditional cigarettes, enabling users to discreetly use their devices.


  • More susceptible to leaks because battery is not sealed.
  • Automatic batteries often need to be primed before use for proper functioning.
  • There is an automatic cutoff period after 5-6 seconds that limits the number of drags you can take per minute.

Manual E-Cig Batteries

Different from automatic batteries, manual switch-style batteries activate when a button is pressed during use. For some users, this takes some getting used to, and can be a hassle in the beginning. However, the added control over the device is the main reason this style of e-cig battery is preferred among experienced vapers.

Pros & Cons of Manual E-Cig Batteries:


  • They have a sealed battery, and that makes them less likely to leak.
  • Greater control over the device as a whole, and more control over the duration of your puffing.
  • Manual batteries do not require priming for the the fullest vapor production.


  • Battery life can be lower than automatic batteries due to the great vapor production.
  • May take more effort to get accustomed to because they are less like traditional cigarettes.
  • More likely to run out of e-liquid/ cartridges faster than automatic batteries because you can take larger hits more often.

While there are equal pros and cons to both style of e-cig batteries, what the choice basically comes down to is which style suits you better.

Our extensive line of vaping products caters to all levels of e-smokers; from experienced hobbyists to the beginners. When it comes to products for the novice, our Express starter kit is the very best e-cigarette on the market, available with an easy-to-use automatic battery, and a very similar design to traditional cigarettes.

Regardless if you’re using a cigarette look-a-like or a more advanced vaporizer cigarette, all e-cigs contain liquid nicotine or e-liquid. E-liquid is either stored in small plastic containers that make it easy for vapers to refill their devices, or comes in pre-filled cartridges. This design however can also make them easy to misplace and fall into the wrong hands.

Puffing and Inhaling: How to get it right

-When vaping with advanced vaporizers, it may come as a surprise that the inhale is a little different than using traditional cigarettes and even basic, entry-level e-cigarettes. While they are designed to be quite similar, and produce amazing hits of vapor-infused nicotine, puffing on vaporizers takes some getting used to and a certain technique. Here are some tips to help you get acquainted with this new type of puffing, because we know that when you switch to vaping it will help you out tremendously to have an idea of what to do, and what not to do.

What to do:

-Regardless of the style of e-cigarette, priming your e-cigarette can do wonders for the performance. Priming is basically a series of quick puffs without inhalation. They heat the coils and get the e-cigarette ready for vaping.

-Slow and steady wins the race, especially when it comes to vaping. This is exactly the right method to use, as it will fill your mouth with vapor quite effectively. Think cigar, not cigarette, as the vapor does not need to be breathed into the lungs for you to get the full effects.

-Hold the vapor in after the inhale for 3-5 seconds before inhaling it into the lungs, or exhaling through your nose. Unlike the nicotine found in tobacco, nicotine from vapor gets absorbed through the mucous membranes, the lungs, and the nose, so you have options as to where you can inhale it from. Interesting, right?

-Be patient. E-Cigarettes take about 30 seconds for the effects of the nicotine to be felt, compared to the 8 seconds most smokers are accustomed to with traditional cigarettes.

What not to do:

You should certainly have an idea of what not to do when vaping, because these little tidbits are just as important as the things you need to do.

-Avoid the short, quick puffs typically used when smoking cigarettes. Because of the way e-cigs are designed, this can lead to liquid ending up in your mouth; which is obviously not the desired result.

-Chain smoking (chain vaping) is not the best thing to do with your electronic cigarette. 3-7 puffs is the average to maximum amount of puffs you should have at any given vaping session to avoid overheating; a couple minutes in between is ideal for cooling.

-Prolonged vaping can lead to a sore throat, irritation, and possibly even “vaper’s tongue” AKA tastebud burnout.

We want you to love your vaping experience with VaporFi products, so follow these tips to get the most out of your electronic cigarettes and vaporizers. You should enjoy your vaping experience to the fullest, and it’s amazing what a few little tweaks to your typical smoking experience can do for you when vaping.

Get Your Hands on Some Candy Flavored E-Liquids!

siteimageCandy is awesome. Yes, it harks back to childhood, and one of the best things about adulthood is that you no longer have to deal with adults who can legally tell you that you’ve got to put a chill on how much of the good stuff you consume. Unless it’s your dentist; you pay them to tell you what you can or can’t eat, and deny it all you want, if you’ve been loading up on sugary, colorful, oh-so juicy sweet treats, the evidence will be there on your pearly whites.

If you vape, on the other hand, you know that when it comes to indulging in the flavors of your choice, whatever types you like, and especially if it’s the taste of candy, you’ve got the free range to have whatever you want.

So that’s why we offer some deliciously fantastic candy-inspired e-liquid flavors. Because candy rocks, and we really don’t lose our love for it even as adults, we are pleased to offer some wildly popular candy flavored e-liquids.
