Vaping in Winter: Your Must Know Guide

Vaping is a fun, enjoyable activity for enthusiasts around the world. It can be enjoyed rain or shine, hot or cold – right? The fact of the matter is that you cannot vape without abandon in extreme weather situations. Vaping in the cold poses a whole host of problems that can easily be dealt with, but only if you know what to expect. From being safe on the road to maintaining your vapes integrity, here is everything you need to know about vaping in winter:

How Your E-Liquid Will React to Sub-Zero Temperatures

The first thought that many people have when it comes to vaping in sub-zero temperatures is whether or not the liquid will freeze. Thankfully, the components of e-liquid (which often include propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin) freeze at lower points than liquid. This means that so long as you keep your vaporizer in your pocket or near your body heat, you won’t have to worry about the liquid freezing on you.

How to Take Care of Your Vape in Winter

Even the best vape can be affected by cold water. Though the liquid won’t likely freeze on you, it can affect the battery life. The reduction can reduce battery life so that it only works at 70% of its potential. To avoid this, keep your vape in your pocket. Some models, like those from Njoy.com, come with an easy case that you can put your vaporizer into, further insulating it and protecting it from the cold.

Tip: Don’t forget your vape in the car. Even boxed up and inside your vehicle, it will likely freeze or break down if left overnight!

How to Care for Yourself

Think back to when you were a child, and you were told to wrap up warm – this doesn’t change just because you’re taking care of yourself! Before you get too concerned, however, just remember to put some moisturizer on your lip before you vape and generally take care of yourself, so you stay healthy this winter.

Staying healthy is also important if you tend to share your vaporizer. The last thing you want is to infect someone else, so either clean your vape regularly or keep it to yourself during these flu-infested months. The last thing you’ll want around Christmas particularly is a cold!

Take Care While Driving

The cold air will cause the vapor cloud to be bigger, and if you vape in your car before it heats up it could mean you can’t see anything. It is always important to be safe when driving on the road, and don’t let an unexpected reaction change that for you.

When outside in winter (particularly if you live somewhere there are sub-zero temperatures) it is always important to take extra safety measures. From putting snow tires onto your vehicle, to taking better care of yourself and your vape. Winter can and will win if you aren’t careful, so follow this guide this winter and don’t try to cut corners.
