How To Clean Your STLTH Device

Spitback. Harsh hits. No hit at all. These are some of the problems that you might encounter when your STLTH device isn’t clean.

Here’s the good news—STLTH vapes are incredibly easy to clean, and cleaning them semi-regularly will lead to higher-quality hits and a longer lifespan for your STLTH device.

That’s a pretty good deal if you ask us. Follow this guide—we’ll teach you exactly how to clean your STLTH device. 

How To Clean Your STLTH Vape

Here’s what you’re going to need to get started:

  • Q-Tips (or any other brand of cotton swab)
  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • Toothpicks or safety pins
  • Compressed air (optional)
  • Paper towel

Cleaning Your STLTH Connectors and Charging Port

To start, clean the connectors that connect your pod to your STLTH device. For a relatively clean device, simply take your cotton swab and gently clean the area around the connectors, as well as the connectors themselves. (The connectors are found in the area where you attach the pod).

For devices with a bit more buildup, we recommend using isopropyl alcohol. You don’t need to soak your cotton swab in isopropyl; a little goes a long way. Again, clean around the connectors, then gently clean the connectors themselves. You’ll also notice connectors on your pod—you can also clean those if it’s a reusable pod (or a disposable one that somehow accumulated a lot of buildup).

Your charging port might fill up with lint or other material. You can clean that out with a toothpick or a safety pin, being careful not to scratch the electronics. You can also use a can of compressed air to blow out anything blocking the port.

Finally, we recommend clearing out the airflow holes on the sides of the vape. Remove the pod before cleaning these, then use a safety pin, toothpick, or compressed air to clean the holes. 

With that, most of the work is already done! You can gently dust your vape with a microfibre cloth, too, if you feel so inclined.

Cleaning Your STLTH Pod

You’ll rarely need to clean your STLTH pod, but if you have a refillable pod or you’re experiencing spitback, you may need to clean your pod. 

The first step is to remove the white cover on the top of your pod. You can do this by wiggling the cover back and forth; it takes a bit of elbow grease, but it can be well worth it. You’ll see a cotton ring on the inside of the pod, around the mouthpiece. Remove it with a toothpick or safety pin, place it on a paper towel, then wipe it. 

From there, you can clean the chimney of the pod with a cotton swab—start with a dry swab, and only use isopropyl if there’s a lot of buildup. Wait at least 30 minutes before using your vape after applying isopropyl—you don’t want to inhale alcohol when you’re hitting your vape!

How Often You Should Clean Your STLTH Vape

We recommend cleaning your STLTH device at least once a month. You should also clean as needed; if you’re experiencing spitback, weak hits, or no hits, cleaning is one of the first troubleshooting steps you should take. 

Other Best Practices To Follow

Cleaning your STLTH device is just one way to get the most out of it. Here are a few other best practices to keep in mind:

  • Don’t overcharge your STLTH vape. Once it’s fully charged, take it off the charging port; charging it too much can actually reduce its maximum battery life.
  • Use chargers that are designed for the STLTH vape, and only charge using 0.5 A charging sources (laptop and computer USB ports usually fit the bill)
  • Don’t charge or leave your vape in extreme heat or extreme cold conditions
  • Only use STLTH-approved pods for your STLTH device.
  • You should almost never refill a STLTH pod; we included instructions for people who refill STLTH pods because we know, despite any warnings, that people will inevitably try this.
