Using a HQD vape is easier than you might think when you're a beginner. Simply remove the packaging and insert the mouthpiece into your mouth and inhale to activate. Alternatively, use the fire button to activate the device. Inhale, hold and exhale to enjoy!

If you're new to vaping, then knowing what you should be looking for in a vape device can be challenging. The marketplace that is vaping has grown significantly and now there are vape pens, pod mods, mod kits, and more. As a beginner to vaping, it can easily sound very confusing.

However, we're here to clear up all that confusion. This article will hopefully provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to get the most out of your HQD vape.

What is an HQD Disposable vape?

HQD which stands for high-quality distribution is a brand of vapes that offer satisfying hits on every inhale and exhale of the device. It comes in a variety of different flavors and two device types that cater to beginners and regular users of vapes.

HQD Cuvie Banana Ice Disposable vape

As a disposable vape, they're easy to use and once they're finished with, you can just dispose of them in the trash. Many vape users opt for the HQD because it's a well-known brand with a strong reputation on the market for providing great flavor combinations and vape devices that provide ease of use.

How to use an HQD vape?

As a new user of an HQD disposable device, it can be nerve-racking at first glance to know what to do. First and foremost, you need to make sure you're of legal smoking age, a number that can vary depending on where you live. Vapes contain an addictive chemical that can get you hooked on these e-cigarettes fairly easily.

Once you have your HQD disposable device, here's a helpful, step-by-step guide on how to use it properly.

  1. Remove the HQD Cuvie Plus disposable out of its box or the Cuvie if you're opting for the smaller size.
  2. Locate the activator button. This should light up once you press it. If the vape is draw-activated, there won't be a button to activate the device, as you activate it via the mouthpiece.
  3. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and take a short inhale.
  4. Hold the vapor in your lungs for a moment or two before exhaling.

Reasons why my vape is blinking

You should have no problem using the vape but there are some faults that can occur with the Cuvie and Cuvie Plus disposable vape devices that are worth knowing about. If your vape is blinking, there might be reasons for this.

HQD Cuvie Plus Black Ice Call to action

Low or dying battery

The HQD is known for having a powerful battery but one of the common reasons for a blinking vape is that the battery life is about to die or is considerably low.

When you don't have enough power coming from the battery itself, the light will start blinking. This shouldn't be happening fairly early on and that could mean there's a fault within the battery or device itself.

If your device is rechargeable, you could always charge the battery capacity back up, however, the Cuvie and Cuvie Plus are both disposable and aren't meant to be charged.

For devices that are brand new and that are blinking would be worth returning to whomever you bought them from for a refund.

Tank Too Tight or Too Loose

For some e-cigs, the device's connection between the battery tank or vape cartridge can sometimes be a bit temperamental.

You may not realize it but the tank might be screwed on too tightly or not tight enough in some cases. As a result, it plays up the connection and stops you from enjoying the sweet or savory vapors that these devices can provide.

Try screwing on the tank more firmly or alternatively, looser than what it was prior.

Coil Shorting

Even with these disposable vapes, there can often be issues with the coils and that can cause a short-circuiting in the device itself. It's worth returning the vape if it's causing the vape device to blink or you might want to throw it out and buy a new one if it's nearing the end of its use anyway.

Fire Button Locked

Some e-cigarette devices allow you to lock the hit button to avoid vapor being awkwardly produced from a back pocket or handbag. There can often be an issue with the fire button being locked if the vape is blinking.

To test this problem, press the hit button quickly three times and then try again. If it doesn't work, then you might want to return it or throw it out.  Get more info and discover more features and flavors reading our HQD Cuvie Plus flavors.

FAQs

How do you know when your HQD is done?

The tell-tale signs that your HQD disposable vape pen is finished is a lack of flavor and a reduction in vapor production. It's worth knowing that the Cuvie Plus offers up to 1,200 puffs and the Cuvie 350, however, this might be more or less depending on how long you inhale for each time.   Get more info and discover more features and flavors reading our HQD Cuvie bar flavors.

How much does an HQD disposable vape cost?

A HQD disposable vape can cost anywhere between $16-$21 depending on the size and where you're buying it from. Some stockists might end up charging more or less depending on how much they purchase them via wholesale.
