E-Cig Summer Safety

E-Cig Summer Safety

As the weather gets warmer most of us will be spending much more time outside. Whether it’s because of work or just to enjoy the sun, that usually means that your e-cig will be spending more time in the sun too. In this post, we will be giving some tips on how to vape safely in the sun.

Keep Your E-Cig Out of the Sun

Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause your e-cigarette to get quite hot, which can make the lithium-ion battery inside dangerous to use. When the battery inside gets too hot it can vent, which could cause harm to the user and their surroundings.

For this reason, it is incredibly important that when taking your vape outside with you, it needs to remain in a cool and shady place away from direct sunlight.

Don’t Let it Get Wet

During the summer many people will take more trips to the seaside and swimming pools, and like most other electronic items, e-cigarettes should not be allowed to get wet.

When making these visits, store your vape in a place where it can remain away from the water and there is no risk of it getting wet. If your device does get wet we would not recommend continuing to use it.

If you are in a position where you are regularly near bodies of water or require a vape device that is not easily damaged the Geek Vape Aegis is proven to be an almost indestructible device that is waterproof, dustproof, shock proof and much more!

How Can You Keep It Safe?

When taking your vape out and about during the warmer weather there are a few ways that you can ensure it is not going to be damaged or become dangerous to use;

  • If you are in a swimming pool or in the sea, leave your device in a safe place away from the water and dry your hands thoroughly before use.
  • Store your device away from direct sunlight and limit exposure as much as possible. Carry cases can be a good way to keep your device and e-liquid all together and are also a convenient way of keeping the device hidden when in busy locations.
  • Be aware that the warmer weather can make your e-liquid less viscous, for those using a high VG you may find it is slightly runnier than usual, and if you are using a 50/50 liquid in a sub-ohm tank you may find the decreased viscosity can make it more prone to leaking and spit back.
