If you are upgrading to blank cartridges and aren’t quite sure how to get started… Or totally new to vaping and want to take the best care of your pen… You might have questions on how to best fill and refill your vape cartridge. We can help.
Each type of e-cigarette or vape uses a “medium” to create the vapor. The most common is a liquid (usually containing nicotine) and is commonly called e-liquid, or e-juice. They come in assorted flavors and nicotine strengths, in various sized quantities.
The first step in filling your cartridge with your favorite flavor of e-juice is purchasing the right kind. You’ll notice that some cartridges are labeled as “sub-ohm,” that means that they are compatible with e-liquid that has a high VG content. If you’re just starting out, we recommend sticking with V2 Classic or EX Blanks. These cartridges have an ohm of 1.0 or higher and are intended for use with high PG e-liquid, like V2 Platinum E-Liquid. Order your selection from the myriad of choices available from V2 E-liquids here. You can shop by brand, or flavor profile—like Tobacco, Menthol, Fruit or Specialty. Or try a flavor sampler – which come in six and 12 flavor packs. The combinations of flavors are endless; you can mix and customize your own flavor combination for the ultimate experience.
To begin the process, it is important to start with a clean and safe workspace.
1- Remove the mouthpiece
2- Hold the cartridge at a slight angle
3- Carefully squeeze the e-liquid in the tank avoiding airflow channels and the center post (be careful not to overfill)
4-Replace the mouthpiece
5- If this is the first time the cartridge has been filled, allow up to five minutes for the wick to absorb the liquid before using
6- Give a few puffs to get the vapor going
And if for any reason you are not looking for a customized flavor experience, you can always vape with prefilled cartridges. There’s something for every vaping style.
Make sure you keep your cartridge appropriately filled. If you find that the taste of the vapor seems burnt, or if the vape appears to be producing less of a puff, add more liquid. Be sure to do so before it gets too low. You don’t want the wick to be damaged from too little liquid, a damaged wick could cause the cartridge to be unusable.
If you find that your cartridge is full but not producing enough vapor, make sure that eliquid has not dripped in the center post, the hollow cylinder in the center of your cartridge (it allows the air to move through and is essential in producing the best and most vapor). If it is clogged, carefully use a clean pin or toothpick to clear off any buildup.
