There are a lot of components that come with vapes, which means a lot more upkeep and maintenance than traditional cigarettes. Filling your tank is one of the things you’ll need to keep up with on a consistent basis. Vaping from an empty tank is no fun—it tastes horrible and can ruin your coils.
Luckily, tank-filling is one of the easier steps to vape maintenance and it shouldn’t take you long to figure out when to refill your vape tank and how. Here we’ll go over a few different ways of filling a vape tank, depending on your device. Vape tanks are either top-fill or bottom-fill. The fill method will change slightly, but either way, the basic concept is still the same: put a few drops of e-liquid onto the coil, fill your tank, and vape!
Filling a top-fill tank
The first step to filling a top-fill tank is to disassemble the tank by unscrewing the airflow base at the bottom of the vaporizer. Once it’s removed, pull the coil out from inside but leave the tank, top connector, and mouthpiece attached. At this point, go ahead and clean out your tank if you’re changing flavors or if it’s been a while since you last cleaned it.
Each coil is different, but most of them contain 4-6 holes along the side. Put a decent-sized drop of e-liquid into each hole in the coil; this helps to preserve the life of the coil. Then fill the tank with e-liquid, leaving a bit of room at the top. The access point for the e-liquid is under the top connector at the top of the tank.
This part can be messy, especially if you’re new to vaping. Be careful when you pour the e-liquid that you don’t pour it into the center of the tank, which acts as the airway and can cause you to inhale the e-liquid in its liquid form. After you’ve filled the tank, reattach it to your device and wait a couple of minutes before vaping again.
Filling a bottom-fill tank
Like the top-fill method, the first step to filling a vape tank is to remove it from the body of your mod, then unscrew the body of the coil from the top of the tank. Prepare your coil by dropping some e-liquid into it as mentioned above, then put the coil back into the tank. Next, unscrew the bottom portion of the atomizer, which allows you access to the tank itself, and fill the tank.
