Vaporizer Care Tips that Everyone Should Follow
Vaporizers have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and for good reason: they allow adults to enjoy tobacco, herb and essential oils without exposing themselves to the cancer-causing toxins that are commonly found in smoke.
Watch Where You Store It!
Where do you plan on storing your vaporizer? If you toss it in your "junk drawer," there's a greater chance of it becoming damaged. A vaporizer is an investment, and as such, should be treated like one. The best place to store it is inside a box of similar shape and size, after it has been wrapped in a towel. Some vaporizers even come with their own storage cases, which of course is a perfect place to store them.
Arguably, the single most importance vaporizer care tip is to keep it clean. While vaporizers don't produce smoke, nor do they produce the same cancer-causing chemicals found in smoke, buildups of resin will form within the atomizer. Over time, this buildup can restrict the flow of air, preventing you from the getting the full effect. And if left untreated, this resin can eat away at the vaporizer itself, causing serious damage to it and its respective components.

Don't Leave it Running for Long Periods of Time
I know this probably sounds like common sense, but it's still worth mentioning that you should never leave a vaporizer running for long periods of time. When you are finished using it, turn off the heating element so it will cool down. Allowing the vaporizer to remain hot may damage the atomizer, preventing it from heating up in the future. Such problems are easily avoided, however, by turning the vaporizer off when you are finished using it.
Use The Right Batteries
Another important care tip for vaporizers is to use the right batteries. Most vaporizes are designed to use lithium polymer battery (LiPo) batteries, which are reliable, long-lasting, and tend to work well in a wide variety of electronic devices, vaporizers included. But there are certain types of LiPo batteries, and using the wrong type in your vaporizer may damage its internal components. Refer to your owner's manual to find out which batteries are suitable for your vaporizer.
