Here’s a little known fact: if you drop, step on, or sit on your vape cartridges, they’ll break. You know that feeling when you stand up forgetting that your phone was on your lap, and hear that smack! That’s the same feeling you’ll get when you drop your vape. Instead of a cracked phone screen, you’ll have a cracked or shattered vape cartridge.
Once that happens, you must get new vape cartridges. Just the slightest crack in the glass of your cartridge is a serious matter. You could be inhaling tiny glass shards. If you have any reason to believe that your cartridge is compromised in any way, you must not use it.
We don’t want to scare you to death, instead we want to give you some tips to prevent this from happening.
Put a thick rubber band around your vape cartridges and tanks
This might not be the most stylish way to protect your cartridges but believe it or not, it works. Some vape kits come with thick silicone bands in the box specifically for this reason. The most common way that the glass of vape cartridge tanks is broken arises from short distance falls. For example, your vape setup is sitting on a table and you bump the table, accidentally tipping your device over. A thick rubber band will absorb the impact of the fall and you’ll live to vape another day.
Purchase a vape battery with magnetic connection
Maybe this isn’t the most economic option if you already have a setup that you love. But let’s think a little long term here. Vapes with magnetic connection are designed for the cartridge to go inside the device rather than on top of it. If your vape cartridge is housed inside the device itself, it is protected, and many of these devices are built of materials tough enough to survive damage from a fall. There is also the added benefit of discretion and being much more compact in size. For a list of cartridge vape batteries, CLICK HERE.
Get a special case for your vape setup
Nothing protects your vape cartridges better than putting them away in a drawer, box or bag when you’re finished using it. Tool belts and bags, fanny packs and small boxes are just some of the things you may already own that will work perfectly as a portable protective case for your vape setup.
Protecting your vape cartridges is important. The obvious reason is that you will save a lot of money by doing so. The not-so-obvious reason is your physical heath (vaping shards of glass or plastic is bad of course). On that note, vape safely, folks.
