Vuse NZ - How to refill an e-cigarette

You’ve finally decided to make the switch from smoking to vaping, and you have everything you need to get started, but there’s just one small problem. You’re not sure how to fill your vape device. For first-time vapers, or those who are making the switch from a disposable vape to a refillable vape, filling your vape pen can feel like a daunting task. But once you’ve done it once or twice it’ll become second nature. How you refill your vape pen depends on the type of device you’re using, so let's explore the different types of vape devices and how to fill them.

How to refill a closed system vape

Closed system vape devices, such as the Vuse Go Reload and ePod 2, are your easy-to-use refill option. Closed system vapes use flavour cartridges, also known as vape pods that come prefilled with e Liquid flavour. These are super simple to use. Simply click your preferred flavour into your vape device and you’re ready to go!

How to refill an open system vape1

Open pod system vapes, which we sell in some overseas markets, allow you to refill the e Liquid in a slightly different way. To do so, remove the battery and mouthpiece from the clearomiser. Pour the e Liquid flavour into the tank, holding the bottle at an angle to avoid dripping the e Liquid into the wrong place. Once it’s completed, replace the battery and put the mouthpiece back on, re-screw the clearomiser and you’re on your way.

How to refill vape with a top fill tank

If you’ve purchased a vape device with a top fill tank from another vape brand, it’s best to follow the instructions provided in the pack for refilling your device, as it can be a little tricker to refill. Here’s an overview on how to refill vapes with a top fill tank:

1. Remove the vaporizer of your vape device by holding the base and unscrewing the top.
2. This will reveal the vape coil, remove it.
3. Using a dropper, release a drop of e Liquid into each cotton hole in the vape coil.
4. Fill the vape tank with e Liquid up to the fill line indicated or just below where the vape coil opening begins.
5. Do not overfill your tank as this could result in leaking and gurgling.
6. Reassemble the vape device, and ensure the connector, mouthpiece and coil are all in place.

After completing the above steps, keep your vape pen upright 3 minutes before you vape. This is to ensure the coil is fully saturated with e Liquid before you puff.

How to refill vape with a bottom fill tank

Similar to the top fill tank devices, vape devices with a bottom fill tank purchased from other brands should come with their own set of instructions for how to refill the e Liquid. Bottom fill tank devices can also have their challenges, let us give you a general overview of how they typically work.

1. To refill your bottom fill vape tank, begin by unscrewing the entire metal bottom of the vaporizer.
2. Fill the vape tank with e Liquid and stop at the maximum fill line.
3. Do not overfill your tank as this could result in leaking and gurgling.
4. Once the tank is filled, put your device back together.
