Vaping is a very safe hobby or habit, especially when you compare it to smoking (which is known to be very dangerous and toxic to your health), but you still need to take proper care of yourself and your mod when vaping. Now when there are a lot of people questioning the safety of vaping and the mods used, since videos of mods sparking went viral in the social media network. To keep yourself always safe, take the time to read these following vaping safety tips.
1. Study how your battery works
Make sure you know how your battery and your mod work. If you don’t take the time to study your battery, it may end in an unwelcome scenario if you mishandle your batteries and your mod units or you modify them. Keep in mind that you’re using lithium ion batteries that can explode once you abuse them or short circuit them. It’s like having a relationship with someone that when you abuse him/her, it can lead to a break up that will hurt both of your feelings. So, take good care of your mod and batteries and it will take good care of you.
2. Don’t pocket your batteries
DON’T, carry your batteries without protection sleeves in your pocket, if you don’t want to burn your pants or even worse than that. We put a lot of things in our pockets, and there’s a possibility that your battery will rupture or discharge once it comes in contact with metal coins, keys or other metal objects. Yes, you don’t want to run out of charge, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Store and carry your batteries properly, to be safe.
3. Drink lots of water
Make sure that you always keep hydrated by drinking fluids especially when you vape. Lots of health problems can occur when you get dehydrated. We all know that vaping can lead to dehydration as vaping takes away moisture from our body. In fact, no matter what you’re doing – running, studying, just waking up – it’s always a good idea to stay hydrated and keep the fluids up.
4. Keep out of reach of children
Place your mod and other paraphernalia where children can’t reach it. Also, take care to keep your e-juice hidden or out of reach from the little ones, as they may drink the e-juice. This can be dangerous to children, especially if the e-juice contains nicotine. You wouldn’t want to be the reason something bad happens to them. Be a responsible adult and be even more responsible when storing your vape equipment.
5. Don’t let your battery overheat.
Overheating can cause your batteries to burst into flames. That’s why you shouldn’t leave your battery where the temperature is in danger of rising, like inside your car. The inside of your car can reach temperatures as much as three times that of the outside temperature. Imagine leaving your mod batteries in that condition. You just might see your car burn because of your mod’s battery (or any other battery, such as cellphones, laptops etc). Be mindful where you store your batteries, especially during our hot summer.
6. Dont Modify Your Kits.
We have many people that always ask us questions on how to trick up or modify their mods for more vape or a mate told me to do this or can I do that to outdo its standard performance. The answer is no. When you purchase your vape gear from genuine resellers that only sell authentic and globally recognized brands you are buying a quality item that is genuine and has been built correctly to perform correctly with no risk of harm. The mods are built and have been engineered to perform to its duties. Modifying/Cutting/Or adding extra turns to your coils to run them hotter than designed is really running the risk of major default problems as you are almost short circuiting your battery when firing up the mod.
Anything, when you don’t do it properly can lead to unwanted results or even injury. Vaping is a safe hobby, and the millions of vapers can attest to that world wide, but if you don’t take good care of yourself, your equipment and those in your surroundings might just get an unpleasant surprise. So be a responsible vaper and take these tips seriously.
