Vaping is a great way to enjoy nicotine without the smoke. But if you don’t take proper care of your vape, it can become damaged or even unusable.
What happens if you leave your vape in a hot car?
The most common threat to vapes is heat damage. Vapes are designed to be used in moderate temperatures that are comfortable for humans. They can be damaged by extreme heat and cold. If you leave your vape in a hot car — especially on a sunny day — the temperature inside could reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more, which can cause permanent damage to the battery and e-liquid tank.
If you notice that your vape has been exposed to extreme temperatures, then immediately remove the battery from the device and leave it in a safe place until it cools down. Then inspect any parts that might have been exposed to high heat — such as wire coils or clearomizers — for signs of melting or warping before using them again.
