Troubleshooting Disposable Vapes
Surprisingly, although straightforward, disposable vapes are not exempt from the Monday morning malfunction. So our team has compiled the most frequently reported disposable vape issues & created the ultimate troubleshooting guide.
LED Indicator is blinking
Ahh, the dreaded blinking light of death. While many use a blinking light to signify the battery is dead, we have seen a few disposables blinking due to the coil being detached from its circuit, either way, it's toast!
Is your rechargeable/disposable vape not working immediately upon opening? It's likely a manufacturing defect. In this case, you’ll want to return your vape for a refund or exchange.
The typical cause for most vapes tasting burnt is the coil. Unfortunately, unlike more elaborate pod mods, most disposable vapes don’t offer the ability to swap out coils.
At this point, it's pretty much a goner, but to squeeze the last few hits of a disposable, we recommend leaving the device to sit for 30 minutes, allowing any remaining juice to saturate the coil before hitting it again.
Muted flavour & weak hits
Sometimes, a disposable device won’t hit or maintain a weak hit because air bubbles in the cartridge prevent airflow, and those bubbles block the airflow sensor.
We recommend flicking or tapping the side of the cartridge to get rid of air bubbles. You can also set the device down for several minutes to allow the wick to absorb more juice. If you do this and the device still doesn’t hit, it’s time for a fresh one.
A disposable will usually only autofire when there is a malfunction with the draw activation sensor. This commonly happens when the user has blown into the device instead of sucking, causing juice to cover the draw activation sensor.
While many have reported the issue resolving after a few hits, it can also cause irreversible damage to the wicking material, lowering or blocking the overall airflow of the device.
