Refilling a disposable vape is not something which is preferred and it could be tricky that’s why users have to be cautious about it. You need certain tools to refill it and these include a small flattened screwdriver, e liquid, paper towel, a dropper, and gloves. 

Steps of Refilling Process

In order to refill up vape, you have to remove the mouthpiece and in order to do that, you can use the screwdriver to gently do it. You have to be careful while doing it and you do not have to apply too much force because it will end up damaging the device. After you have removed the mouth piece, now you will be able to see the coil and the liquid reservoir. 

Once the mouthpiece has been removed you can now easily access the e-liquid reservoir. Usually these reservoirs are sealed with the rubber plug or a silicon plug in order to prevent any leakages. You have to remove this plug using the same screwdriver but again you have to be cautious about the force that you are applying because it will damage the reservoir if you are too hard on it. 

Now you have to come to the e-liquid that you have chosen for refilling. It has to be of your choice, but you have to make sure it is the right type for your vape. Not all liquids go well with any vape. Some have a higher VG ratio, whereas others have a higher PG ratio. You can refill this liquid or transfer it into the reservoir by using the dropper. You have to make sure that you do not overfill the reservoir because it will cost potential risk for your device and you may face leakages. You only have to fill about 80 to 90% of the reservoir’s capacity and you have to leave some space for the silicon plug. 

After you have filled the reservoir and placed the rubber plug securely, you can now move to the reassembling process. Put each compartment where it was before you disassembled it. You have to leave the coil soaked in your e-liquid for a few minutes before you start vaping again. It’s a crucial step because if the coil is not properly saturated with the liquid it will lead to dry hits and it can also lead to damage where the coil is burnt out and give the burn taste in your mouth. 

Once a few minutes have passed, you can now test the device by taking a few gentle puffs. If you feel the taste or flavour is burnt then you need to give more time to your device for your coil to prime completely. However if the taste is normal then the refilling process has been successful and now you can use your device.
