A Quick Vaping Tip: Recycling

Now that you've ditched the analog cigarettes for vape products, you have much to feel proud about. However, it's still important to be a responsible vaper. When it comes to hardware, recycling is crucial. Most of the materials from which these types of products are made from can be recycled so that they may be reused. 


You may think that your products don't make a huge difference when it comes to saving the environment. However, consider how many coils and juice bottles you go through in one month alone. Over time, your discarded products add up. That's why it's important to recycle your vape products when you're no longer using them. 

Recycling Your Vape Products:

 

Used Bottles

 

Your empty e-liquid bottles are made from either plastic or glass, two materials that should always be recycled. To properly recycle your old juice bottles, make sure to rinse them out with hot water. Don't forget to recycle the bottle caps as well.

An alternative to recycling your old juice bottles is repurposing them for yourself. These bottles can be collected and used for future DIY juice-making ventures. Even if you don't plan on becoming a DIY vaper in the near future, small, empty bottles do come in handy. 

Batteries

 

It's crucial that you recycle your old batteries. In fact, many states require by law that all batteries are properly recycled. Because they can leak toxic chemicals if carelessly discarded, it's very unwise to simply toss them into the garbage. 

If your vape batteries are still functional, you may consider selling them instead of discarding them. Many online vaping communities allow you to sell your old batteries if they still work properly. 

Coils

 

Sure, coils are small, but they really do add up. Because coils are made from stainless-steel, they're recyclable. Give them a good rinse and toss them into the recycling bin rather than the garbage can. 

Tanks

Your tanks can be recycled because they are made from stainless-steel and glass/poly-carbonate. Both materials can be turned into other products. Give your old vape tank a thorough rinse under warm water and throw it into your recycling can. 

Just Recycle It

 

By making a point to recycle these vape products, you will become a responsible vaper who is doing their part to take care of the environment.

E-Juice Effects When Vaping in Humid Conditions

E-Juice Effects When Vaping in Humid Conditions

One of the best things about vaping is that there are a few areas where it is restricted. So, you are likely to come across many vapers vaping outdoors, almost anywhere, especially during the summer months. Yes, the flexibility to vape wherever and whenever is a great thing, but it is important to understand that humidity can affect your vaping experience, especially when it comes to your e-liquids you bought at Highbrow Vapor.

Effects on E-Juice Flow

Humidity affects the rubber seals that are used in modern tanks. If the humidity is high, the rubber seals tend to swell. As a result, they lose their flexibility and then the pressure which should create a vacuum is lost. And because the tanks are designed in such a way that they draw vape juice in a vacuum sealed environment, the flow of e-juice might be affected. Also, high humidity will affect the ability of your tank to seep juice as it should.

 

Effects on E-Juice Viscosity

High humidity also affects the viscosity of your e-juice. In hotter and high humid seasons, you will notice that it is thinner than usual. The thinning out of juice will have two effects on your vaping experience. First, it will cause a reduction on the thickness of vapor. Besides, it is the thickness of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) that enables production of thick clouds. Therefore, if the e-liquid's viscosity is interfered with, it means that VG's capability is affected, leading to a significant reduction in vapor. The other consequence of thinned vape juice is leaking. If the liquid is too thin, it might oversaturate the wicks and the excess ends up in your mouth or leaks out of your tank. Either way, vaping with a thinned e-juice is disastrous.

 

Vaping in high humidity is not wrong. However, you must know how humidity can affect your vaping experience. This will help you in understanding what you can do to mitigate the effects of humidity. One of the things you can do is to ensure that you vape in areas that are less humid. This way, you can reduce the effects that humidity has on seals, which in turn, leads to proper flow of the e-liquid. Additionally, you will be able to maintain proper viscosity of your e-liquids, hence, avoiding thin cloud production and leakage incidents.

 

During the high humidity months, or if you live in high humidity areas, it is also important to note the safety implication of humidity towards vaping. Be careful where you store your batteries as high humidity might damage them. Particularly when the batteries are made of Lithium.
