A vape pen consists of different components like the power source, batteries, mouthpiece, atomizer, chamber and wires. The wires in your vape pen can be damaged by accident or may experience wear and tear over time due to extensive usage of the vape pen; regardless of the reason for damage, you’ll need to know how to fix vape pen wires before you spend money on an entirely new setup or give up using your electronic cigarette all together. I have been researching the best ways to fix a vape pen wire since I broke mine and it isn’t looking good! I will update this page with the latest information I find. In the meantime, if you know of any ways to fix vape pen wires, please share them in the comments below so I can try them out! Thank you all! 😀
How you can fix vape pens wires?
If your vape pen wire has come loose, don’t worry! This is a common problem and there are many ways you can go about fixing it.
Reinsert the wire into the connector by pushing it in and twisting it slightly to make sure it won’t come loose. If that doesn’t work, try using a pair of needle-nose pliers or tweezers to grab the wire and pull on it gently until it reattaches.
If that doesn’t work either, try unscrewing the connector from the battery base and pushing the wire back through the hole from which it came from.
It’s easy to forget that vape pens are made up of many different pieces–some of which might seem minor but are important for the function. For example, most people don’t know what type of wire they use to hold their coils together. You see, there are two main types: kanthal and nickel. These two types come with their own set of benefits, so knowing which type is best for your needs will save time in deciding what type to buy. Kanthal has a lower resistance than nickel does (less electricity flows through), so if you want heat-up time to be shorter then kanthal is the way to go; however if taste matters then nickel may be better since it has less metallic flavor than kanthal does.
Why Wires Break on Vape Pens?
Wires are a common issue for most people who use vape pens. Wires can be broken or disconnected at any point in the process of using your vape pen. Sometimes, the wire will break on the mouthpiece, but it is just as likely that it will break on the atomizer or battery end of things. When these types of wires break, they need to be repaired before they can be used again. That’s where we come in! Here are some steps you can take to repair a wire:
- Cut out the bad part of the wire
- Connect the two remaining ends together with electrical tape
- Wrap a layer of insulation around them
- Cover it all up with more electrical tape and cut off excess 5. Reattach the mouthpiece 6. Reconnect the charger and test it out 7. If everything works, rewrap the whole thing with heat shrink tubing
Simple ways to fix vap pen wires
- Bend the broken wire back in place.
- Replace any broken or burned out coils with a new one.
- Remove the battery and clean it using rubbing alcohol, cotton swabs, and paper towels; then put it back in the device and replace the coil(s).
- Clean the threads on both ends of the battery connection with rubbing alcohol and use a multimeter to check for any shorts between them.
- Apply heat shrink tubing over any exposed wire connections as an added safety measure (this should be done after all other attempts have been made). 6. Reattach your cartridge to the mouthpiece if you had removed it before repairing anything. 7. Turn on your device and take a hit to ensure that everything is functioning properly again. 8. Give yourself a pat on the back for successfully fixing your vap pen! Now let’s move onto how to tell when your vape pen is about to stop working so that you can prevent this from happening. One way is to keep track of the number of puffs taken per day and report any irregularities so keep an eye out for these signs so you don’t end up without a vape pen!
Tips to Prevent Future Wire Breakage
The first thing you need to do is find out what kind of wire it is. You can tell by looking at the coil. If it’s a double wrapped coil, then it’s a kanthal wire and if it’s a single wrapped coil then it’s nichrome. Once you know which wire type you have, you’ll need to know the width of the wire and the thickness of the coils. A thicker gauge will give your e-cigarette more power and make for a stronger draw but this is not always desirable for some people. The next thing you’ll want to do is decide how much metal needs to be stripped off in order for your coil wrap around the metal core three times. Now, get yourself some pliers or a wire stripper and cut off the end that needs to be trimmed down. Next take the length of wire you trimmed down with pliers or wire stripper and wrap it around your metal core 3 times until there’s no exposed area left. Now just solder each side of the loop together with an electric soldering iron so they’re touching one another like two puzzle pieces; that way when you heat up one side, it also heats up on the other side too!
If your wire is just loose, then you have nothing to worry about. However, if the wire is broken or cracked, it can cause problems with the battery. If this is the case, try replacing the wire and see if that fixes it. If not, it might be time for a new battery. In order to replace the wire, first get an ohmmeter (or multimeter) from an electronics store and check the resistance of your coil. It should read less than 1Ω. Cut off any burnt ends of the coil with a pair of pliers before soldering on a new piece of wire. Make sure you solder both ends securely so they don’t come undone in the future. Then, put some electrical tape around the end to keep everything together until the two pieces of metal fuse together. You’re now ready to fire up your vape pen!
