Before using your vape cartridge, it's important to properly prime it to prevent the coil from burning and to ensure a pleasant vaping experience. Here are the steps to follow:

Check Intake Holes:

Ensure all four intake holes at the base of the cartridge are fully covered with oil. If they are not covered, wait until the holes are completely saturated before use.

Wait or Accelerate Saturation:

If the intake holes are not covered, allow the oil to saturate the coil naturally, which may take more than 24 hours. Alternatively, to speed up the process, gently warm the lower half of the cartridge with a hairdryer or heat gun for 30 seconds until the oil covers the intake holes.

To prevent a burnt taste, consider these tips:

Voltage Settings: Start with a low voltage setting on your 510 thread battery. Gradually increase the voltage to find the ideal setting that avoids overheating the oil and creating an unpleasant taste.

Activation Intervals:

Inhale while activating the battery to keep the oil from overheating. Avoid activating the battery for long periods without inhaling; take brief, controlled puffs to ensure even vaporization.

Monitor Oil Levels:

Keep the oil level sufficient in the cartridge to avoid exposing the heating element to air. Replace the cartridge when the oil is nearly depleted.

Avoid Over Tightening:

Attach the cartridge to the battery until it is securely fitted, ensuring proper airflow. Do not over-tighten, as this can create a vacuum effect that might flood the cartridge with oil and result in a burnt taste.
