What is e-cigarette condensate? How to deal with e-cigarette condensate?

E-liquid News

Many friends who use e-cigarettes have heard of e-cigarette condensate, but many people do not know the nature of e-cigarette condensate and how to deal with it. Here are some introductions and treatment methods for e-cigarette condensate.

Firstly, what is e-cigarette condensate? E-cigarette condensate is a liquid in e-cigarettes, which is generated from the atomizer during use. When e-cigarettes produce smoke, the moisture and other substances in the smoke will condense into liquid due to the temperature difference with the atomizer, which is called e-cigarette condensate.

Secondly, how to deal with e-cigarette condensate? Generally, e-cigarette condensate is not harmful, but it may have some impact on the performance of e-cigarettes. Therefore, if you find that e-cigarette condensate accumulates too much, you can try the following methods:

Regular cleaning: Regular cleaning of the e-cigarette atomizer can reduce the accumulation of condensate. You can use a cotton swab or alcohol to clean the atomizer.

Replace the atomizer: If you still find too much condensate after cleaning, you can consider replacing the atomizer. A new atomizer usually reduces the production of condensate.

Adjust usage habits: Try to adjust the usage habits of e-cigarettes, such as reducing the frequency of use, reducing the force of inhalation, etc. These adjustments can reduce the amount of smoke produced, thereby reducing the accumulation of condensate.

According to the different locations where condensation occurs, different treatment methods are also available.

1. External condensation of the atomizer

This type of condensation usually occurs in drip-style atomizers and is related to the way users use the atomizer. If the user blows air from the mouthpiece into the atomizer first before inhaling during daily use, the high-temperature smoke will be blown out from the air inlet, causing the smoke to condense on the metal of the atomizer's outer wall at low temperatures. Alternatively, condensation can form on the atomizer's outer wall or base gap when the atomizer is placed in the exhaled smoke. However, this type of condensation generally does not affect the normal use of the atomizer, so there is no need to worry.

2. Internal compartment condensation of the atomizer refers to the condensation inside the atomizer's compartment. There are three reasons for its occurrence: first, the heating element generates high-temperature smoke and contacts the internal metal of the atomizer to form a condensation effect; second, the e-liquid splashes into the atomizer cover and forms condensation; third, the smoke curls up inside the atomizer compartment and collides with the cooling metal, causing it to liquefy. This situation is not a cause for concern because the internal structure of the atomizer is domed or vertical, far from our mouth, and separated by the mouthpiece. Therefore, the condensation will accumulate to a certain extent and flow down along the compartment, without entering our mouth, and ultimately be absorbed by cotton and rejoin the entire circulation. There is no need to worry about the so-called "short circuit" phenomenon when dealing with e-cigarette condensation because except for NI300, the heating wire materials used in e-cigarettes will form an insulating layer on the surface after heating, and small water droplets will not have any short-circuit impact on them. As for NI300 pure nickel wire, which is loosely wound, this level of small water droplets will not have any effect.

3. Condensation in the atomizer mouthpiece

The condensation in e-cigarettes is the culprit that hinders us from experiencing the atomizer perfectly. The reason is simple: when high-temperature vapor passes through the mouthpiece, the inside of the mouthpiece forms condensation due to coldness. Since the water vapor in e-cigarettes is mixed with e-liquid, if these condensates are directly inhaled, the taste of e-liquid will be directly tasted in the mouth, which is very uncomfortable. There are four main ways to solve this problem:

a. Increase the suction speed to reduce the contact time between the vapor and the mouthpiece and thus reduce condensation.

b. After releasing the ignition button, continue to take two puffs or blow two puffs to remove or blow away the remaining vapor evaporated by the heating core to prevent the vapor from floating around and surging to the mouthpiece to form condensation.

c. Change the mouthpiece material, because condensates are particularly prone to appear on smooth materials. You can replace the mouthpiece with a PTFE material or manually polish the inside of the mouthpiece to make it full of pits and reduce the flow of condensates in the mouthpiece to reduce the inhalation of condensates.

d. Change the mouthpiece structure. This method is simple and rough. If your atomizer is a universal interface mouthpiece, it is the most recommended. Even if condensation appears inside the mouthpiece, as long as a barrier is added around the mouthpiece outlet to block the condensation from entering our mouths, the condensation inside the mouthpiece will flow down the smooth inside of the mouthpiece and the problem will be solved.

Finally, it is important to be careful when dealing with condensation in e-cigarettes to avoid liquid splashing or accidental inhalation. If you feel uncomfortable or have any questions, you should consult a professional promptly.
