How To Fix Your Spitting Atomizer

vapes in a lineOne minute you were casually vaping until suddenly, you got a mouth full of e-juice. In case you were wondering, no, this is not a typical part of vaping. Your vape atomizer causing spitback is not a good sign; it’s your vape’s way of telling you that there is something wrong internally. It’s important to inspect this issue as soon as it arises. It’s also beneficial to maintain your vape regularly so that you won’t have to deal with this sort of situation. We’ll cover the basics on how to stop your atomizer from spitting:


What Is an Atomizer?

The atomizer is the part of your vape device that generates the vapour that you inhale. It’s the role of the atomizer to provide a well to hold your e-juice, a heating surface to vapourize it, and a wick to lead the juice from the well to the heating surface. You can see why this is such an integral piece of your device. It’s responsible for the overall enjoyment of vaping but can quickly ruin the experience when something goes awry. 


How To Keep It From Spitting

Prime Your Coils

When you’re priming your coils, make sure you don’t overdo it. Putting too much e-juice in the chamber can cause flooding, which will lead to spitting. It’s recommended that you give the cotton time to saturate the liquid before you fire up your vape. An old coil can play a factoring role in spitting. It is important to remember that if you are vaping quite consistently, then you should replace your coil once every 1-2 weeks. 


Increase Your Airflow

If you’re inhaling too forcefully, it can cause flooding by pulling too much liquid into the chamber of your vape. This issue can be avoided if you take softer inhales. Let your coil and wick do the work for you. If the issue still arises, you can increase your airflow setting and see if that makes a difference. A tight airflow can cause more juice to be pulled into the coil. 


Increase Your Wattage

Increasing your wattage will assist in vapourizing the e-liquid more effectively. If the wattage is too low, it can cause the coil to take longer to reach the correct temperature needed to vapourize. Instead, your coil could be met with flooding.


Check Your E-Juice

When it comes to e-liquids, PG has a thinner consistency than VG. If you’re using a high PG e-juice, the likelihood of flooding is greater than if you were using a high VG liquid instead. Changing over to a VG juice can potentially solve any spitback issues you may be facing. 


Clean the Chimney 

Making a habit of regularly cleaning your chimney could play a role in reducing the amount of spitting from your vape. If left untouched, the chimney could collect any excess juice that’s in your chimney and can eventually drip down to your coil. Take a piece of tissue paper, roll it up, remove your drip tip, and insert the tissue down the chimney. This should soak up any residue and hopefully fix the spitting problem. 

You don’t always have to stick with one vape or e-juice, either. There are many different kinds of juices and equipment that you can try.
