Caring for your battery…


  • Do not use it, even if it comes with some power, prior to charging it up the first time.
  • Charge it for more than 2 hours prior to initial use.
  • After initial charge, do not overcharge it.
  • Charging is best done when the battery reaches 50% capacity; recharging at this point puts less strain on the battery to reboot.
  • Use only the chargers specified by the manufacturer for your device.

Atomizer best practices…

  • Atomizers don’t last long; about 2-4 weeks with regular use.
  • Single coil or double? It’s a matter of preference, so try both types.
  • Don’t drain e-liquid completely before refilling. The atomizer needs sufficient liquid immersion to run properly.

Filling up…

  • Fill it up to 75% max – don’t overfill.
  • Drip your liquid towards the side of the opening.
  • Avoid pouring liquid down the center as it will get into your mouth and taste terrible.

Storing your vape device…

  • Keep it away from heat and excessive light. (Don’t leave it in the car)
  • A product-specific storage case is ideal.
  • Your pocket is not.
  • E-liquid is best stored in a cool, dark place, like the fridge, when not in use.
