How can I keep my cartomizers/cartridges fresh?


Ecig cartridges have a tendency to dry out quickly once you open the sealing – especially if it comes with a rubber/plastic cover. If it does not come with a cover then it is probably dry already :-). Once an ecig cartridge has dried it up it creates problems including causing a burnt smell/taste.

So here are a few things you can do to extend the life of the cartridge:

  1. Keep opened cartridges in the refrigerator
  2. If you keep unopened cartridges in the refrigerator that will increase life too – especially if you are going to store it for 3-6 months or more
  3. Make sure it does not freeze – that will really spoil your cartridges
  4. After you take them out of the refrigerator allow them to warm a bit. If you don’t they will heat up too rapidly and become dry. Keep them open with cap off for 15 minutes or so.
  5. Air currents quicken the process of drying up the cartridges. So keep them in a dresser drawer or a closed box. No need to air seal it just don’t keep it on a table or similar open area.
  6. Some people prick the interior with a pin to get their vapor started. Don’t try this because this may damage the cartridge/coil.
