When it comes to squonk mods there is nothing that is yuckier than taking a dry hit. It tastes awful! Dry hits happen when the wick in your vape isn’t saturated with e-juice and you get a burnt taste complete with a burnt smell. The coil burns your wick because there is no liquid there to be burnt instead. But don’t worry it happens to us all at least once, here are some tips so you never take a dry hit again.
Watch the Level of E-Juice
Having enough e-juice in the reservoir is the best way of avoiding a dry hit. Dry hits usually happen because the wick isn’t saturated enough so making sure that you fill up the tank no higher than the fill line. Not only will letting your tank run dry give you a dry hit you can damage your coil and wick and need to get them replaced more often than necessary. Here is some help filling the tank.
Priming Your Wick
Before you start vaping you are going to need to prime the coil and the wick. All you have to do is make sure that all of the air holes are closed then suck on the mouthpiece. That makes sure that the wick is completely covered however be careful, too much suction and you end up with gurgling. You also need to make sure that your wick is properly trimmed so that it can be properly saturated and nothing gets blocked.
Watch How You Vape
How you vape may actually be the reason that you keep on getting a dry hit. If you want to avoid a dry hit then don’t take long and hard drags and be wary of chain vaping. When you finally get a smoke break at work and you head outside to take a drag from your vape don’t take too many hits at once it doesn’t give your wick enough time to get saturated again.
Check Your Settings
If you have the wattage set far too high then you will also end up getting a dry hit. If your e-juice has a high propylene glycol content that will make it even more likely that you end up with a dry hit. Adjust the settings and you should be fine.
Dry hits are inevitable and the happen to all vapers at one point or another but if you take care then you can avoid taking any more dry hits than necessary.
