How to refill your e-cigarette

There are lots of different types of e-cigarettes, all with different means of refilling. Some are refilled using fresh tanks whereas others work by manually refilling the clearomizer with e-liquid. Depending on how often you vape, you may need to refill your e-cigarette frequently, so it is important to understand how this process works.

Closed System e-cigarettes

Tanks are used in Closed System e-cigarettes such as the blu PLUS+™.This means that the e-liquid is contained within the tank itself and cannot be manually refilled. Replacing a tank is simple - when you start to notice a change in the way your e-cig is performing, it’s time for a new tank. These changes can include less vapor production and a weaker flavor.

To replace your blu Plus+ Tank™, unscrew the used one and throw away responsibly. Then take your new tank and screw it onto the rechargeable device. Make sure that the tank is attached securely as this could affect the vapor production.

blu® Disposables cannot be refilled as the tank is internalized within the e-cig itself. When the e-liquid in your disposable has been used, simply throw away the entire e-cigarette.

Open System e-cigarettes

E-liquid bottles are used to refill Open System e-cigarettes like the blu PRO™. The name Open System e-cigarette refers to the fact that the clearomizer (where the e-liquid is stored) can be topped up manually. The blu PRO™ has a clear window on the side of the device so you can see when your blu® Liquid has run out. To refill your e-cigarette, follow these steps:

  1. Unscrew mouthpiece and battery from clearomizer.
  2. Place nozzle on inside wall, avoiding center tubing.
  3. Squeeze to fill clearomizer. Gauge level using clear window and do not fill past top of window.
  4. Screw mouthpiece and battery back onto clearomizer.
  5. Take a few shorter drags to prime e-cig for best vapor production.

It is important to keep e-liquid out of the center tubing, as this can lead to flooding. This is when e-liquid gets into the mouthpiece, and can result in a bad taste when vaping. You can sometimes notice flooding when your e-cig starts making a gurgling sound and produces less vapor than normal.

When refilling your e-cig this way, it is a good idea to do so over a paper towel so that any spilled e-liquid can be easily mopped up. Refilling your e-cigarette also provides a good opportunity to clean the mouthpiece, as this will make sure that you continue to get a smooth draw from your device. To do this simply place a tissue inside the back of the unscrewed mouthpiece and blow through it.

To make sure that your e-cigarette continues producing the best flavor and has a consistent vapor production, it is recommended that the clearomizer is replaced itself every 10 refills.
