How To Clean An Electronic Cigarette

As we all know, these new e cigarettes are one of the most creative inventions when it comes to trying to quit smoking or trying to find an alternative smoking device that will help smokers have a healthier lifestyle while smoking. One of the biggest differences between traditional tobacco cigarettes and the electronic cigarette is that the electronic cigarette is battery powered and has no smoke.

There are different types of E cigarettes and there are downsides to some types where the user will have to clean them every once in a while. Here is how to clean an electronic cigarette but also other recommendations of how to avoid having to clean the electronic cigarette as well.

One of the different types of electronic cigarette is the 3 piece electronic cigarette. The main parts to these are the battery, the liquid nicotine cartridge and a separate atomizer.

Most of the time with the 3 piece electronic cigarette the atomizer will get clogged and either need to be cleaned or replaced. In order to clean this you will need to take a soft lint free cloth and clean around the battery that screws into the atomizer. You must not use any water or chemicals or this will destroy the atomizer.

Next you will have to clear out any remaining liquid nicotine that is left in the atomizer by blowing into the L.E.D tip of the battery( part that lights up) and this will push the remaining liquid nicotine into the atomizer which will be vaporized.

This seems like a lot of work doesn’t it? Well this is the disadvantage of using the 3 piece design. One of the better ways to go is using a 2 piece design. The reason why is because the 2 piece design comes with a battery, and a liquid nicotine cartridge but the atomizer is built right into the cartridge.

This means that when the liquid nicotine is depleted, you just screw the cartridge off and throw it away. When you replace it with a new cartridge you will also have a fresh “unclogged” atomizer.

Everyone has their own opinion about which electronic cigarette is best for them. I personally like the 2 piece electric cigarette better because of the plug and play value. I don’t want to have to sit there and clean my atomizer all the time because frankly, I just don’t have the time to do that. Either way, any type of E cigarette you use will help you get on the path to a healthy alternative to smoking!
