E-Cigarette Safety Tips

Over the past year, there have been stories of electronic cigarettes blowing up, causing fire in households and other harm to vapers. Whilst vaping is a great hobby and an excellent alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes, it is important to ensure that e-cigarettes are used safely in order to avert potential harm. Just like any other electronic device, there are some best practices to take onboard to minimise potential harm. We have put together a brief, and by no means definitive guide to help you to stay safe when using your electronic cigarettes whether they are starter kits, RTAs, RDAs or sub tanks. Most of the devices operate using the same overriding principles. However, the complexity of devices differs and it is therefore advisable to do your independent research into the device that you are using. For example, with mechanical MODs, coil building and electricity laws are one of the most important considerations to take into account.

At The Eliquid Boutique, we believe that it is important to ensure that you buy your e-liquid and vape supplies from an established and reputable supplier. At our vape online shop UK, all of our e-liquid undergoes rigorous testing to ensure that it is safe and compliant with the relevant domestic and international laws and standards. When stocking new brands from other e-liquid manufacturers, we vet each e-liquid brand very carefully to ensure that the e-liquid is safe, compliant and meets the highest standards of quality that we and our customers expect.

Staying Safe with Batteries

The majority of electronic cigarettes and personal vapourisers use lithium ion batteries, which are also used in many other electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops, etc. Major problems crop up when vapers use replaceable batteries and build their own coils since vapers can allow the discharge rate of their build to exceed the maximum discharge rate of the battery, which can in turn cause explosions. However, if you do your research into your personal vapouriser and electricity law, you can substantially minimise this risk.

It is important to ensure that you keep your battery out of the heat since heat is the major cause of malfunctioning e-cigarettes. If it is around 60 degrees on a sunny day, the heat inside your car can reach a hellish 100 degrees. If you notice that your battery becomes swollen or warped or is hot, do not touch it or use it.

It is important that you do not keep your batteries inside your pocket. Whilst it may seem like a good idea to carry a few extra batteries with you, ensure that you carry your batteries inside a case. Keeping your battery inside your pocket with other articles such as keys and spare change can not only damage the battery but also cause a fire.

Part of the vaping hobby is the customisation of your e-cig, RDA, RTA or a sub-tank. It is important that you know exactly what you are doing when customising your build or changing voltage or power setting on your device. Changing power, voltage and other custom settings can not only damage your e-cigarette but also cause it to overheat and melt.

It is important to ensure that you store your batteries and other vaping supplies such as e-liquid out of the reach of pets and children. E-liquid can be hazardous if swallowed. It is therefore of prime importance to ensure that your e-liquid comes in child proof bottles and is stored out of the reach of children. Never leave your batteries unattended whilst they are on charge as this can cause the batteries to heat up and explode through overcharging.

Do your Homework

The vaping market is constantly evolving and new devices, e-liquids and medical research is coming out. It is important that you keep abreast of the latest developments and news to ensure that you are fully informed about vaping. This knowledge will help you to take the necessary safety precautions to ensure that you are using your electronic cigarettes correctly and safely. When purchasing your device, ensure that you consult an expert such as your local vape shop. There are many vape forms, youtube reviewers and vape communities that we encourage you to join and become more informed. People on vape forums are usually very knowledgeable and helpful.

Choose Safe E-Liquid

Personal vapourisers and electronic cigarettes use e-liquid. Since we ingest e-liquid into our bodies, it is crucial to ensure that the e-liquid is compliant, safe and free of harmful chemicals such as diacetyl. When purchasing your e-liquid supplies, ensure that you research the brand and examine their data sheets and certification. At The Eliquid Boutique, vape online shop UK, we test all of the e-liquids that we produce to ensure that they are free of harmful chemicals and use only the highest quality flavourings, VG, PG and nicotine. All of our e-liquids are made in a clean room to ensure that our e-liquid reaches you in the cleanest and purest forms without any contaminants.
