1. Make sure your vape tank is turned off.

This is because turning off the tank prevents accidental leakage or spills during the filling process. By turning off the tank, you can safely remove the cap or top of the e cigarette and refill the tank without worrying about any e-liquid escaping.

2. Find the fill port.

The fill port is typically located on the top or bottom of the body of the vape tank. Once you find the fill port, gently remove the plug to expose the opening to refill it. It's important to be careful not to drop or lose the plug as you will need to replace it to seal the refill tank after filling.

3. Unscrew or slide open the fill port. Be careful not to spill any e-liquid.

Depending on the model, it may be a screw or slide open mechanism as well as top-fill or bottom-fill. Once you have found the fill port, unscrew or slide it open carefully to avoid any spills. It's important to handle the e-liquid with care and avoid getting it on your skin or clothes. 

4. Insert the nozzle of your e-liquid bottle into the fill port.

Take the nozzle of your e-liquid bottle and insert it into the fill port. Make sure to do this gently and avoid any spills or leaks. 

5. Prime the coil.

Priming the coil involves prepping it with e-liquid to prevent dry hits and burnt tastes. To prime the coil, start by applying a few drops of e-liquid directly onto the exposed cotton wicking material. This allows the e-liquid to soak into the coil and saturate the wick.

After priming new coil, let the coil sit for a few minutes to ensure proper saturation. Once the coil is properly saturated and primed, it is ready to be installed into the hole in the body of the vape device and filled with e-liquid.

6. Squeeze the bottle gently to fill the tank.

Take your e-liquid bottle and gently squeeze it to fill the tank through one of the fill holes. Be careful not to overfill it, as this can cause leaking, and make sure to inclinate the tank as you fill it.

7. Replace the fill port.

To do this, carefully unscrew the top cap of the vape tank to expose the fill port and screw the new one. Make sure to check the user manual or instructions provided by the manufacturer to locate the exact position of the fill port. 

8. Turn on your vape and enjoy!

After having done all these steps, you are ready to start vaping after you let the e-liquid saturate.

How do I know if my vape tank is top-fill or bottom-fill?

Firstly, a top-fill tank will typically have a removable cap or lid at the top, allowing you to easily access the top of the tank and fill or refill it with e-liquid from the top. On the other hand, a bottom-fill tank will usually have a screw-off or slide-off base at the top filling tank bottom, which needs to be removed to access the top filling port or tank top for filling.

Additionally, you can also refer to the vape kits user manual or instructions or the vape juice can kit that came with your vape kit or tank, as it often specifies the filling method.

How much e-liquid should I use?

The amount of e-liquid you should use depends on several factors, including the type of device you are using, your personal preference, and the nicotine strength of the e-liquid. Generally, it is recommended to start with a smaller amount and gradually increase if needed. For beginners, a good starting point is usually around 1-2 ml of e-liquid per day. However, experienced vapers may use anywhere from 3-5 ml or more per day.

What are the common mistakes to avoid when filling a vape tank?

1. Avoid overfilling the tank

Overfilling most tanks can lead to leaking and can also cause the tank to flood. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for filling and refilling the tank to ensure that it is filled and refilled to the appropriate level.

2. Avoid priming the coil incorrectly

Priming the coil involves saturating the wick with e-liquid to prevent dry hits and burnt taste. Failure to prime the coil can result in a harsh and unpleasant vaping experience.

3. Avoid using incompatible e-liquids

 Using e-liquids that are not designed for your specific vape tank can cause damage to the tank and can also result in a poor flavor and vapor production. Therefore, it is important to use high-quality e-liquids that are compatible with your tank.
