Festival season is finally here, and after a summer of cancelled events last year, it’s no wonder many of us are more excited than ever to dance our wellies off in a field. But for vapers this poses an important question: can you vape at festivals?
The answer in general is yes, but with the added note that it is usually only allowed in open spaces. If you’re wondering whether you can vape at large festivals like Glastonbury or Bestival, you’ll be pleased to know that many of the bigger festivals don’t have explicit guidelines that ban vaping, though you might be asked to stop if you’re in an enclosed space. If you’re unsure about vaping at the festival you’re heading to, we’d recommend getting in touch with the festival organiser to double-check.
Part of the festival experience is surviving without the comforts of home, so for anyone new to vaping at festivals, we’ve put together a few tips on how to clean and charge your e-cigarettes at a festival.
Whether it’s dusty or muddy, we can all get a little dirty at festivals, but one thing you need to look after is your e-cig! Wiping down an e-cig with a paper towel and some water will help keep it clean. Check the terminal between the battery and the cartridge or clearomiser to make sure it’s clean too, as if it gets dirty your e-cig might stop working.
Also, remember to wipe down the mouthpiece to make sure you have a tasty vape rather than a mouthful of dust! It’ll also help your e-cig produce vapour to the best of its abilities.
When cleaning a blu PRO®, we’d recommended disassembling your e-cig before cleaning so that you don’t get any water on your battery. Unscrew the clearomiser from the battery and then unscrew the mouthpiece from the top. Next, carefully pour a small amount of water into the clearomiser until it is about half full before placing your thumb over the top. Shake the clearomiser rigorously for a few seconds before emptying the water. Wipe down the clearomiser thoroughly before reassembling your e-cigarette. This will clear out any residual e-liquid inside your clearomiser.
If cleaning doesn’t appeal to you, you can purchase a second clearomiser and switch between them. This will help ensure you’re still getting a nice vape without repeatedly having to clean your device.
Some festivals offer hubs where phones and e-cigarettes can be charged, but make sure to get there early as the queues can fill up pretty fast! To avoid running out of batteries, e-liquid or cartridges, vapers can also take spares with them.
All blu® e-cigarettes will generally hold charge for a day if you remember to fully charge them before heading out, although this depends on how much you use them. Keep this in mind when planning your daily activities. If you’re using the blu PRO®, remember to turn your e-cig off after use by pressing the button 5 times to make sure it doesn’t run out when you need it the most!
